The weather is getting progressively warmer, and the Summer of Self-Love continues!

Summer is an inherently vibrant time of year – the days are longer and brighter, the fresh produce is rich and abundant, and the sunshine is invigorating – perfect for outdoor adventures with treasured company – this makes for a natural opportunity to show some love to our health and happiness!

My goal this summer is to empower everyone to love themselves enough to wholeheartedly nourish their entire being.

If we are feeling energised and revitalised, we can do the things that truly excite us in life not just throughout the summer, but all year round.

“My goal this summer is to empower everyone to love themselves enough to wholeheartedly nourish their entire being.”


The single most valuable thing you can do for your health this summer is nourishing your body with nutrients.

Nutritional support gives your body the essential nutrients it needs to function optimally each day, which will help you feel your best. December and January can be a very full on time of year, in between the end of term, Christmas parties, visits to see your in-laws, and lots of lovely summer BBQs, it can be hard to keep on top of your regular wellness routine.


Adding ‘Good’ In with Nutrients

We know there will be indulgences, but we don’t want you to feel completely restricted at this time of year – restricting ourselves doesn’t promote a life of self-love, so instead of giving things up entirely, start by adding 'good things' in.

One way of adding ‘good’, is by adding in plenty of nutrients to continue nourishing your body. The simple way to do this is remembering to take your nutritional support.

Adding in nutrients will support your body at this time of year, making sure that when you do have a glass of red wine, eat your mum’s pavlova, or overindulge, at least your body still has all the essential nutrients it needs. This will promote a happy, healthier you throughout the silly season and lessons the pressure of trying to ‘do it all’.

Why it’s important to love your body with nutrients

1. Energy to do the things you love

Restore and re-energise your body with optimal levels of nutrients such as B-vitamins, vitamin D, zinc, selenium and vitamin C. B-vitamins, in particular, are essential for energy production at a cellular level. This means the more b-vitamins you have, the more energy your body will be able to produce.

2. Quality Sleep

The festive break is such a great time of year to really catch up on some quality sleep.

Magnesium is vital for good quality sleep. Research has shown that magnesium increases sleep time, sleep efficiency, sleep time hormone melatonin and decreases serum cortisol concentration.

As you can see, sleep is so important – as it is during this time that your body repairs and restores and because our body produces day and night-time hormones, our entire hormonal system is tightly regulated based on our sleeping patterns. We encourage you to really indulge in great sleep over the break by nourishing your body with the nutrients it needs.


3. Support for your liver

Our livers require adequate nutrients to process toxins out of the body. Love your liver with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants this summer to support your liver to clear any extra toxins, particularly if you do indulge in a glass of red wine. Without adequate nutrients, the liver is unable to successfully detoxify toxins from the body.

4. Balancing your precious hormones

Every part of your body is interconnected. And your hormones are the key to bringing all your body systems together in a perfect symphony, as they play a huge role in how you feel on a daily basis, both physically and emotionally; from energy production, how you sleep, your mood, weight management and sex hormone production.

Vitamins and minerals act as cofactors for every single metabolic reaction in the body. This means that every time our body creates a hormone, it requires a nutrient to do so. Support your hormone balance with a high quality, high strength multivitamin and omega 3 fish oil this summer. Without nutrients, our body struggles to make hormones in sufficient quantity for optimal health and energy.

 

As you can see, nutrients play an incredibly important role in our we feel day to day, hence why they are absolutely essential for your self-love routine.
