The advantages of Omega-3 intake are certainly outstanding, but how do you get it and how much is sufficient? 

 

The advantages of Omega-3 intake are certainly outstanding, but how do you get it and how much is sufficient? 

As a result of today’s lifestyle and our Western diet, most people’s Omega-3 levels are way too low.

For good health, it is recommended to get at least two servings of non-fried fish per week.  Oily fish such as salmon, tuna and mackerel are good sources of Omega-3 and are easily absorbed by the body.  

               

Gut health and good health – with 3 natural tips!

 

In the old days, when a child or baby showed good health or resistance to infections, people would say they had a ‘good constipation.’

What it really meant was that they had a great natural immune function - strong and resilient. But how do you get one? We've got three natural suggestions for you, such as Manuka Honey and natural herbs. 

               

We’re so conditioned to thinking that fat is bad for us, but there are some fats, like Lecithin, we simply can’t live without.

What is lecithin?

Lecithin is a lipid – a fat required for many processes in the body. Natural Life™ Lecithin is a pure soy-based lecithin supplement widely used to support fat metabolism, normal cholesterol levels and liver support. Here are few ways Lecithin helps keep your body ticking:

  • Lecithin is an important component of cell membranes, vital for healthy growth and function of cells.
  • Lecithin is present in the protective sheaths surrounding your brain and nerves and is an important support for a healthy liver.
  • It contains choline, a B vitamin related to brain development, memory and reduced blood pressure.
  • Lecithin is a source of linoleic acid and linolenic acids, which work with other fatty acids to support cardio health, maintain normal cholesterol levels and manage inflammation in the body.
               

It's improtant to inderstand the function of probiotics and factors affecting bacteria in the gut. Read our latest article to find out what you need to know about chirldren's gut funtion and what to look for in a probiotic. 

Why should you care about your child’s digestive bacteria?

The gut microflora is slowly colonised over the first years of life and once colonised will generally be set for life. Probiotics after this time are generally passed through the digestive system (transient) and may be needed to be taken regularly to provide benefits. Therefore early exposure (via mother’s influence or a supplementary source) may have lifetime implications on health and wellbeing, digestive function and systemic immunity.

               

Bees: the tiny little creatures that buzz from flower to flower, drinking nectar and making the long trip home to make their hives and their honey, have made some incredible contributions to human health.

To some, bees are annoying, or even scary, but they make two substances that have amazing properties for supporting our health and wellbeing.

The first is one you surely know about: honey. The sweet, sticky substance that sweetens your tea, which bees make for their food, has wonderful properties that can alleviate soreness and infection. More specifically, Manuka honey, produced in Australian by pees that pollinate the Manuka bush, has received special attention because of its health properties above and beyond conventional honey.

The second, called propolis, might be something you have never heard about before. It is the waxy or resin-like substance, also known as bee glue, is used to make the beehive. Its use for medicinal purposes has dated back to as early as 350 B.C.

               

The skin benefits of Propolis Extract are abundant.

It is one of the only substances in the world, scientists say, known to contain nearly all of the vitamins and nutrients needed to sustain life.

Unlike honey, Propolis is derived from the sap of coniferous trees, such as pine and hemlock trees, which never lose their leaves. Bees are able to convert this sap into a sticky resin, which is said to range in color from brown to green. The bees then use the Propolis like a glue, or concrete, to hold their hive together.

               

The Natural Life team is proud of their new display  hive at Sydney Airport.

Our farmers cultivate Australian Manuka plants (locally known as 'jelly bush') so we can enjoy locally produced Manuka Honey.

Natural Life™ Manuka Honey is a premium grade, pure, hand harvested Australian honey from beehives along the northern coast of New South Wales, Australia.

               

Kids get into all kinds of trouble when they’re playing outdoors, but you wouldn’t have it any other way! Propolis liquid or spray can help with cold sores, bumps and scratches, and also with injuries that aren’t accident-induced.

Childhood scrapes and sores are a part of growing up, but it doesn’t have to slow your kids down! The antibacterial and antiseptic properties in propolis help keep germs out so scratches and sores don’t become infected. And if an infection has already taken hold, propolis can help treat and heal.

  •  Grazes, scrapes, cuts and abrasions

Honey is a blend of sugar, trace enzymes, minerals, vitamins, and amino acids that has antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antioxidant properties.

Honey has been valued as a natural sweetener long before sugar became widely available in the 16th century. Honey production flourished in ancient Greece and Sicily, for instance, while animals other than humans – bears, badgers, and more – have long raided honeybee hives, risking stings for the sweet reward. Honey is truly a remarkable substance, made even more extraordinary by the process with which it is made. This blend of sugar, trace enzymes, minerals, vitamins, and amino acids is quite unlike any other sweetener on the planet. And while honey is high in fructose, it has many health benefits when used in moderation (assuming you're healthy).

               

Boost skin health, look radiant and feel great with 99.9% pure Squalene.

The Uses of Squalane for Skin Care Many beauty and skin care experts have lauded the effects of squalane on the skin. This oil, which occurs naturally in the body, is also found in olive oil and in the livers of certain sharks. Squalane is not to be confused with squalene, which is the non-hydrogenated form of shark liver oil and which tends to quickly oxidize when exposed to the air. More and more beauty products are adding squalane to their cosmetics, skin creams, and anti aging serum products because experts believe it is a natural moisturizer.

If you’re considering creating a skin regimen based on this oil, you should first learn a bit more about why so many skin care experts find it effective and whether or not you risk suffering any side effects from its use. Squalane as a Moisturizer Although squalane is produced naturally by the body, the production of this chemical slows drastically after age thirty, thus contributing to dry skin. Using a moisturizer with squalane may help restore the proper balance of the skin’s oils.

One benefit that many people enjoy about squalane is that even though it is technically an oil, it does not have an oily feel. It also has no odor and is non-comedonal, which means that it will not clog pores. This ingredient is also believed to have anti-bacterial properties, which may reduce the symptoms of existing acne without causing redness, stinging, or peeling. Products that contain squalane also tend to absorb slowly into the skin and may be more effective for sensitive skin, as the oil has been clinically proven to be non-irritating. Much like vitamin E, squalane creates a barrier between the skin and the environment so the skin can better retain moisture as it protects the external layer of the epidermis at the same time.

Using Squalane for Skin Problems

Many skin care experts and other medical professionals assert that squalane has a number of positive effects on uneven skin pigmentation, scars, and age spots. Much like retinol, this oil is believed to fight free radicals in the skin that are caused by the sun’s UV rays. This is an important consideration, because dark spots on face and hands are often caused by the skin’s reaction to long-term exposure to the sun, which creates more melanin in those areas to protect it. The use of beauty products that contain squalane may fade these marks over time because of the oil’s ability to sink deep into the skin and repair it. Keep in mind, however, that the effectiveness of squalane on UV-damaged skin is still being studied, so it’s important that you remain realistic about the results you expect to achieve.

Squalane as an Anti-Aging Ingredient Several studies conducted in recent years show that squalane not only hydrates and softens the skin, but may also be an effective anti-aging ingredient. Because squalane spreads easily over the skin and penetrates so deeply, it may help to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It may also fight aging by protecting the skin from UV rays and free radicals, which destroy skin cells and damage the skin’s natural collagen.

The Side Effects of Squalane

While there are little to no known side effects that come from using squalane, there is the environmental concern that the squalane that is being harvested from sharks is threatening their population. If you want to take advantage of the purported benefits of this ingredient but object to these animals being killed to collect the oil, you do have a choice when making a purchasing decision. Read product labels to see if the squalane was derived from plants, such as olives, or if it was harvested from captured sharks. Maximise these health benefits with 99.9% pure Squalene oil from Natural Life™ Squalene. Natural Life ™ Squalene is a premium quality product from the southern dogfish shark which has been shown to yield the highest concentration of squalene and alkyglycerides. Natural Life™ Squalene is proudly Australian owned and manufactured in a GMP facility, so you can trust the quality and purity of the product and our processes in delivering this premium natural health product to you.
