FEELING BLOATED AFTER MEALS?

Digestive Bitter Herbal TinctureLet’s Dive Into The Magic Of Digestive Health

And Discover How Herbal Tinctures Can Bring Relief

If, like myself, you love good food and eating a vast variety right across the culinary globe, you may, at times, experience some discomfort and bloatedness after your meal or the next day. Certainly going through Menopause is no laughing matter when it comes to this huge balloon of a belly all of a sudden.  A totally new phenomenon, which simply feels awful.  I have found a way, however, to keep these unpleasant and uncomfortable side effects at bay with the help of some ancient, well-researched, reliable and safe herbal tinctures.

Please meet my guest blogger Sarah Hyland, Nutritional Advisor with the long-established and trusted A. Vogel brand. In her post about digestion, Sarah will explain to us, how best to use traditional herbal medicines and why they can be a life changer when it comes to digestive discomfort, bloatedness and irregularity in bowel movements.

What is bloating?

    (By Sarah Hyland – Studying Health Sciences, Writer & Product Trainer @sarahhhealth 

Bloating is often used in Ireland as a polite euphuism for anything from wind to constipation but also fluid retention. In our defence, it’s sometimes hard to tell the difference especially when they all come together! Here’s a dummies’ guide to bloating (with solutions) – find out if yours is a digestive maladie or a water balance issue.

The term ‘bloating’ may be used to mean fluid retention, often caused by hormonal fluctuations or dehydration but it can also refer to digestive distention and discomfort caused by excess wind or constipation. Bitter herbs, avoidance of certain foods, and simple lifestyle changes may help to reduce bloating by strengthening digestion and balancing bodily fluids.

What is ‘Bloating’?

The term ‘bloating’ caused me much confusion when I first started working in a health food shop. As a naïve (but eager) 20 something-year-old I was blissfully ignorant of the prevalence of digestive ailments, and assumed that bloating was made of water; something like Violet Beauregard, the greedy girl/giant blueberry who had to be rolled to Willy Wonka’s juicing room for deflation. (I hope this old-person analogy still holds water.) It wasn’t until I heard my boss recommending linseed and constipation remedies for the same complaint, that it dawned on me. In Ireland, we use ‘bloating’ as a polite euphemism that covers the fluid retention that can build up before a woman’s period, abdominal distension due to constipation, or a belly full of farts. In our defense, it’s sometimes hard to tell the difference, especially when they all come together!

The digestive bloat

A big puffy middle may be caused by a variety of digestive vagaries or ailments. Overeating, fizzy drinks, takeout curries and alcohol are obvious short-term culprits that can cause unpleasant feelings of fullness, wind, queasyness and indigestion. Herbs that nourish the liver and improve bile flow are useful in this instance. We need bile to break down and digest fatty foods and alcohol. Bile also triggers peristalsis, the wave-like movement of the bowel that pushes digested food and waste along and out.

Bloating and wind can also indicate chronic digestive trouble such as constipation, food intolerances and stress, all of which can cause IBS symptoms. Not necessarily something that can be fixed overnight with an easy, single, over-the-counter purchase. Over time, poor food choices can have a devastating effect on appetite and can weaken the digestive system’s production of gastric juices and digestive enzymes. A period of illness can have a similar effect, and the focus should be on strengthening and supporting the body.

Constipation and wind are associated with a low-fiber diet and mild dehydration; so, try these lifestyle challenges:

  • Drink an extra pint of water (taken away from meals) every day for 10 days
  • Once your water intake is on point, consume a tablespoon of chia seeds (soaked in water for at least six hours) daily
  • Encourage the balance of friendly bacteria in the gut by eating a daily portion of lacto-fermented, natural, unsweetened yoghurt, sauerkraut, kombucha or kefir.

Herbs can be very useful when supporting good digestion. Milk Thistle and herbal bitters such as Dandelion, Boldo, and Artichoke have long been used to support digestion and the liver. Traditionally they are taken as an aperitif before a meal to help stimulate production of bile and digestive juices.

Herbalists will also use bitters such as Yarrow, Gentian, Blessed Thistle and Dandelion to strengthen a weakened digestive system that may not be processing food very effectively. The idea is to promote and stimulate the production of digestive enzymes and digestive juices. Bitter tastes are particularly useful for those whose appetite may need regulation. This is why in ye olden times, people used to start the meal with something bitter tasting a Martini, half a grapefruit or a green salad. In Europe they still do this, and generally have fewer digestive problems.

For trapped wind and painful colic, herbs that are considered antispasmodic may be used as a tea or digestive remedy – Yarrow, Fennel, Avena sativa and Lemon Balm.

My favourite lacto-fermented product is Molkosan – I put 1-2 teaspoons in a glass of water for a refreshing drink!

Fluid retention – the Violet Beauregard

The other kind of bloating – excess water or water retention – can leave you feeling puffed up. It may cause bags under the eyes and swollen legs, ankles, hands or feet. Those of us whose fluid levels fluctuate with our hormones may see changes in bra size in the days leading up to the period. It can render that top button of your jeans un-closeable or ruin the line of a dress that you want to look good in.

Various factors cause water retention, including some common prescription medications and serious underlying health conditions like kidney disease and heart failure. If suspected, these would need to be investigated by a medical professional. However, lots of people experience mild water retention due to things like hot weather, hormonal changes like menopausal transition or fluctuations before and during a period, or simply being inactive for long periods, such as sitting in front of a computer.

Drinking lots and lots of still water is important, as our body’s fluid balance is very much influenced by the potassium-sodium salt balance. We don’t want sodium to be too concentrated in our organs or blood. Fluid balance will be improved by reducing table salt (sodium chloride), salty foods like crisps, sausages, ham, etc., and eating instead more potassium-rich foods like fresh vegetables. Bananas, oranges, spinach, broccoli, and the herb Dandelion are all good potassium sources. A common response to fluid retention is to stop drinking water, in the mistaken belief that you already have too much in your soggy body. However, the body hangs on even more grimly to every drop of fluid if it thinks there’s a drought. Drink up, and the body will release the excess. Have a Dandelion tea. Move about more to stimulate the circulation and the lymphatic system. Rebounding (bouncing on a trampoline) is fun and very good for moving fluid in the body.  For those of us who would rather take a gentle approach, try a walk after dinner. Herbs that are useful for fluid balance are Dandelion, Hawthorn, Parsley, Solidago (Golden Rod), Horsetail, Nettle and Green tea.

 

My Top Tip: Add 1-2 teaspoons to a glass of water for a refreshing drink

Elevate Your Health With Nature’s Healing Champions – Medicinal Mushrooms

How Do Medicinal Mushrooms Boost Immunity and Gut Health?

These ancient funghi span from pretty to outlandish looking and, at times, are simply quite ugly. The fact of their survival and adaptation across the millennia alone is witness to their superpower of adaptation and survival. With constantly evolving research methods, science has established, what is responsible for those fantastic superpowers. Here are some of the main features including their fabulous benefits to the human body.

Beta-Glucans, a type of polysaccharide (Multisugar molecule) are currently of high interest and the topic of many scientific studies as they have shown to hold immune-modulating effects. By stimulating immune cells, they enhance the body’s ability to recognize and target pathogens. It is this immune-modulating effect that can also dampen down an overactive immune system as in the case of allergies like hayfever and autoimmune conditions.

As a potent source of prebiotic fibers and compounds, these mushrooms provide food for good bacteria colonizing our gut, which in turn results in a healthy and balanced microbiome. A healthy gut flora allows for better absorption of nutrients as well as protection from unwanted pathogens or an overgrowth of the ever-present candida albicans. As a result, adding medicinal mushrooms to our daily regimen may result in soothing inflammation in the gut lining and improving overall digestive health.

So let’s have a look at some of those wise organisms and what they may be beneficial for in bullet points.  Always consult your doctor or health professional before taking any supplements. If you are on medication, these products may be contraindicated.

Lion’s Mane (Hericium Erinaceus)

  • Improved memory and brain function. Studies have shown improved memory in healthy individuals, as well as increased cognitive function in adults aged 50-80 years old with mild cognitive impairment.
  • Protection against gut and stomach ulcers as it stops the growth of Helicobacter Pyroli.
  • Increased recovery from nervous system injury has been seen.
  • Improvements in colitis (non Crohn’s).
  • Reduction in anxiety and adults with mild depression.

Cordyceps (Cordyceps Sinensis)

  • Supports maintenance of lung and liver functions.
  • Promising Anti-Viral responses.
  • May improve kidney function.
  • Supports sports performance due to increased oxygen delivery.
  • Increased libido.
  • Acts beneficial on post-viral fatigue.
  • Restores adrenal depletion.

Maitake (Grifola Frondosa)

  • Immune modulating.
  • Adrenal support.
  • Balances blood sugars.
  • Beneficial for improving chronic fatigue.
  • Controls Candida.

Reishi (Ganoderma Lucidum)

  • Anti-inflammatory including Rheumatoid Arthritis.
  • Anti-allergy.
  • Hay Fever. (Most beneficial when taken 2 months before hay fever season).
  • Allergic rhinitis.
  • Allergic asthma.
  • Blocked sinus.
  • Immune support.

Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus)

  • Improves muscle and joint recovery times thus supporting athletic activity.
  • Shows beneficial effects on skin conditions such as psoriasis.
  • A reduction in LDL (bad) cholesterol has been observed.
  • Highly antioxidant, and a great travel companion.
  • May reduce inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.

The above information is based on medicinal mushroom in the Irish Botanica brand and its co-founder David Foley (Herbalist). For the best results and to choose the best product for your lifestyle, please consult with your independent health store, ideally a stockist of the Irish Botanica Brand and asl always, do your own research to get a broader picture of these amazing plants.

 

 

 

 

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas For Women Over 50

For many of us ladies who have entered the second half of our lives, the best gift on Mother’s day often is to hear from our probably quite adult offspring and that they are doing ok. But if our children or anyone who appreciates our mother’s status would like to mark the day with a gift of appreciation, I’ve put together some ideas that may inspire. Feel free to add to the list, it is by no means exhaustive.

1. A TRAVEL VOUCHER

This of course, only applies to those of us who have itchy feet and love exploring the world whether domestic or abroad.

2. A GOOD BOOK

To go with the travel voucher maybe? As a guide destination book or just a holiday read.

3. HAIR AND BODY PRODUCTS FOR ETERNAL YOUTH 🙂

I’ve compiled a list of products that are very popular with us ladies around and beyond the 50s all year round. Let me give you the reasons why:

The Crown, aka our precious hair. With hormones all over the place at this stage of a woman’s life, hair maintenance and care can be challenging or even frustrating. If the Mom in your life mentions any changes in her hair, here is a suggestion to strengthen and nourish it.

  • NEW NORDIC Hair Volume™ Shampoo 250ml
    contains apple, apple cider vinegar and amino acids which repair and thicken the hair by giving it volume, density and moisture. It smells divine with a hint of coconut, like a summer breeze.
    Silicone and sulfated surfactant-free and mineral oil (paraffin) free. Gives volume, density and moisture.

 

  • NEW NORDIC Hair Volume™ Conditioner 250ml

Contains apple, millet and amino acids which weightlessly repair the hair by giving it volume, shine and softness.  Free from Silicone, Sulfated surfactants, and Mineral oils.

A great combination for that “me time” hair care experience.  If safe to do so, this combo is a great addition to NEW NORDIC Hair Volume tablets. But best to ask first, if a supplement is desired or add a Gift Voucher for personal use after Mother’s Day.

COLLAGEN – HIGH PRIORITY FOR YOUTHFUL LOOKS

 

New Nordic Collagen Shot™ is a one-a-day liquid marine collagen ready-to-drink sachet, which can
help improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Now, who would not like to see this happening?

I’d say, this will definitely be a winner.  With its €35 price tag, moms might put it on their wish list, intending to buy it one day. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Fits effortlessly into an everyday beauty routine
  • Contains premium freshwater marine collage combined with precious 500mg Acerola cherry Extract (Vitamin C), which aids with the absorption of collagen and helps maintain your body’s own collagen production.
  • Mainly women over 40 years will appreciate this as they might be seeing more fine lines/wrinkles
  • Who doesn’t want to improve skin firmness and elasticity?
  • Leaves skin feeling well moisturized and is easy to take in its handy liquid form.
    (Does contain ingredients from animal source)

HAND CREAM – THE PRACTICAL GIFT

A mother’s hands are always busy doing something. This takes its toll on a woman’s hand and therefore a good quality, silicone-free natural hand cream will always be appreciated. One of those products…..

Suggestions include:

                                                       
Dr. Hauschka Hydrating Hand Cream    Weleda Hand Creams                 Natura Siberica Hand Creams

4. FLOWERS, DON’T FORGET THE FLOWERS

So underrated. But flowers will always brighten up a home. Maybe get the fairtrade or organic ones as they are not laden with pesticides and many other chemicals.

Remarkable Benefits For Our Health Revealed

Meet Resveratrol from Terranova-Nutrition (TN)

What a fascinating product. I guess we’ve all heard about the health benefits of having red wine as is common practice with some of our neighbours in France and Italy. The reason for this well-known statement lies in the antioxidant powers found in red grapes. And as pleasant as it is to have a glass of wine with our lunch and dinner daily, it is a fact that our lifestyles do unfortunately not suit this habit. Secondly, the amount of alcohol taken in for the most nutritious value may negate the benefits of the active ingredients found in the grapes used for the wine.

Thankfully there is an easier way to get hold of these amazing plant substances. One of my favourites is the Resveratrol Complex by Terranova Nutrition. 

Trans-resveratrol is a polyphenol compound………, wait, what? Let’s talk “normal speak” so that we can all understand why I consider this such a great choice of product. We are talking about plant chemicals. Plants, just like humans are made up of chemical compounds and hormone-like substances. Many of those can have super beneficial attributes for us humans. Just like the food we eat, especially when choosing the freshest and least processed.

So back to Resveratrol from TN. This product is derived from the root of Japanese Knotweed (Polygonum Cuspidatum). I find this particularly interesting as it is a plant marked as an “invasive species” here in Ireland. Isn’t it great, that seemingly it has amazing health benefits and that companies found a way to harvest it appropriately? TN combined it with a highly synergistic Magnifood Complex.

Quercetin and Black Pepper are two more components added to this product. Both contain their own potent health benefits. By adding these compounds to Resveratrol, the best possible absorption and utilization by our body is achieved. TN calls this “bioavailability enhancing”.

As this company backs its products through research and science, I value TN as a 100% trustworthy and transparent partner for my business. In this context, research on Resveratrol shows that taking this substance has been seen as beneficial in reducing blood pressure, particularly systolic BP. This is the number read as upper blood pressure. Systolic BP typically goes up with age, as the arteries stiffen. When pressure is too high….. I think you know what the risks may be. 

Resveratrol may support this BP-lowering effect by helping our body produce nitric oxide, which causes blood vessels to relax. 

Let’s summarize Resveratrol’s Common Applications:

  • Antioxidant (protects cells from getting rusty)
  • Cardiovascular (Heart Health)
  • Cognitive Function
  • Circulation
  • Inflammation
  • Blood Sugar Balance
  • Anti-Aging
  • Immune Support
  • Joint Health
  • Brain and Eye Health

Resveratrol vs Trans Resveratrol

Have you spotted references to ‘trans-resveratrol’ thrown into the mix too? You may be wondering if they’re the same thing. Resveratrol is the general product name used for supplements. However, the active ingredient contained within is often trans-resveratrol. They are two different forms of the compound.  The distinction between the two types comes down to how easy it is for your body to absorb and use it. Here’s the breakdown:

  • Red grape skins are a rich source of resveratrol. However, the health benefits only occur once it’s converted into trans-resveratrol in the body.
  • Trans-resveratrol is a chemical form of resveratrol that’s ready to be absorbed and used by the body. For example, Japanese knotweed contains high concentrations of trans-resveratrol. This makes it an effective source for use in food supplements.

Product Reviews – My Step By Step List

You may have seen some of the product reviews I have posted on my YouTube, Facebook and Instagram channels. It’s a passion of mine to look “under the hood” of products I stock and I consider worth the time, sharing a bit more about with you.

Here is my step-by-step procedure:

  1. First, I look into the company or person that produces it. As I am predominantly interested in reviewing independent enterprises, I need to see who is behind it. Nowadays, we see more and more that big companies have bought several of the smaller producers in this industry and whether we like it or not, I believe in 100% transparency when choosing to stock or buy a produce.
  2. Once I’m happy with the company transparency and ethos, I choose the product/s I would like to test.
  3. First and most important information of the product to me is the ingredient listing. I am predominantly looking for all components to be from natural origin. If there are ingredients that look synthetic to me, I generally reach out to the producers to get clarification. Again, if they are a transparent company, they will reveal the exact origin of their ingredients. And that’s absolutely fine. I will then declare to you what these ingredients are, and anything we need to know about them. The choice, whether to use this product or not, lies with us, the consumer. As a stockist, I may choose differently.
  4. If the product is claiming to be certified organic, I will also look at the certifying body.
  5. Country of origin is a personal passion of mine as I am so interested in all peoples of the globe. I do not make political distinctions as I believe that every farmer and ethical producer has the right to market their products equally, regardless of their country’s political behaviors.
  6. Last not least, I will look at the marketing efforts too. Unfortunately, having a great product doesn’t mean you have a great business. And if there is little marketing activity, the product may not survive. Cause and effect. Therefore it could be a wasted effort to promote a good product or range, only to find efforts wasted and customer disappointed.

So that’s pretty much it. If there is anything else you would like to be included in my exploration, feel free to make suggestions by contacting me.

 

Excellent Natural Sunscreen – Product Review Alba Botanica

Alba sunscreen

An excellent choice for your holiday

If you have had difficulty in finding the most suitable sunscreen, may I suggest this product from Alba Botanica. Have you been experiencing so called “sun allergy” or itchy patches when exposed to warm sunshine?  And it often gets worse the more sun cream is applied?
Have a look at this video. After using this Hawaiian Sunscreen SPF 30 under the African sun for more than 2 weeks, I can truly recommend it, even for most sensitive skin conditions.

In a previous video review I had explained that often a reaction can be due to the ingredient called titanium dioxide, used predominantly as active ingredient in sun creams. Make sure to watch it.

 

A Day For Soup….

Ingredients used in this recipe

Bring Out Those Flavours

Danny has decided to delight us with a “leftover Veg” soup. The powerful properties of organic ginger, chillies, onions and garlic are extracted by glazing them first in the slightly heated oil. Following that, he adds his choice of vegetables like sweet potato and carrot. A great way to use up any bits of leftover vegetables from the fridge before going off to buy new ones.

All the ingredients used are from our own organic store selection. You can find the complete recipe below. But first, watch this little clip and feel free to share:

Ingredients Suggestion:

1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 Onion, roughly chopped
2 large carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
4 cm fresh root ginger, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1/2 tsp dried red chili flakes or 1 chili finely chopped
700g sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1/2 liter vegetable stock
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method:

1. Heat oil in a large and lidded saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and carrots and cook until softened. Stir in the ginger, garlic and chili flakes and fry for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant.

2. Stir in the sweet potato and stock. Turn up the heat and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer with the lid on for about 15 minutes or until the sweet potato is tender.

3. Remove the pan from heat and blend soup using a stick blender until smooth. Make sure soup has cooled down before blending to avoid hot splashes. Alternatively use food processor or leave veg chunky.

Season to taste and serve and most of all…..

ENJOY!
