Your gut is your body’s powerhouse.
Not only does it nourish you with essential nutrients, it helps to protect you against external pathogens and autoimmune diseases.
Plus, your gut has a vital connection with your brain as it supports the production of vitamins, hormones, and neurotransmitters. It contains around 100 million neurons, the same cells found in the nervous system.
This connection is called the “enteric nervous system” (ENS), and some scientists have playfully nicknamed your gut the “second brain”.
Our everyday emotional wellbeing can be hugely impacted by gut health as the second brain affects your mood and brain function depending on what’s going on inside your digestive tract.
In the lead up to your wedding, taking care of your gut is vital for maintaining good health and keeping those butterflies under control.
Our Everyday Wellness capsules have been expertly formulated to promote a healthy gut by supporting friendly bacteria with 6 types of probiotics.
As part of your daily routine, Everyday Wellness can help reduce inflammation, enhance nutrient absorption, and keep your body functioning at its best.
The last thing any of us needs is stress, especially before our wedding day.
When we’re stressed, our nervous system reacts by releasing a flood of stress hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol that push us into a fight or flight mode. Over time, stress has a devastating impact on the body, from headaches and heartburn to insomnia and fertility problems.
It’s especially bad news for our hair.
Cortisol is directly connected to the function of our hair follicles. When cortisol levels are high, the adrenal glands produce fewer hormones that promote hair growth, and as a result hair weakens and begins to shed.
Stress also weakens the immune system and can cause inflammatory conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis, to flare up, leading to all manner of beauty problems.
Fortunately, there are plenty of things you can do to relieve yourself from stress, which we highly recommend incorporating into your wedding prep routine.
- Get a good 7-9 hours of sleep every night
- Move your body and do regular exercise
- Limit your intake of alcohol, sugar, and caffeine
- Head to a regular yoga class and meditate daily
- Unplug from social media and get some offline time
- Relax with friends, family and loved ones
- Support your diet with the right nutrition
Our Ginkgo Biloba B+ supplement has been expertly formulated using a powerful botanical derived from the ginkgo tree that has natural destressing properties.
Combined with our Super Greens supplement, which contains a rich blend of superfoods to support a strong immune system, Ginkgo Biloba B+ can help to reduce stress, strengthen hair and improve wellbeing.
