Sales advisors Claire Longwill and Grainne McLaughlin test soy candles, natural bath salts, arnica tablets, a multivitamin and immune support

1. IMMUNE SUPPORT

Claire says: “I took three bottles of the Zell Oxygen Immunkomplex. The benefits I noticed from this tonic were increased energy levels, better sleeping pattern and it kept away colds and flus. It is a great winter tonic or for someone who is feeling running down and fatigued.”

2. MULTIVITAMIN

Grainne says: “I started Solgar V2000 Multivitamin when I was feeling quite run down, lacking energy and found myself suffering with a slump every evening when I finished work. After only a week of taking these tablets I already noticed a difference. My energy levels improved, motivation to get up and go for a walk or a class in the evenings had returned and my overall mood had changed for the better.”

3. ARNICA TABLETS

Claire says: “Weleda Arnica Tablets were a great benefit to me after I got a wisdom tooth removed. I had very little swelling and no bruising. The healing process was very fast.”

4. SOY CANDLES

Grainne says: “Emma’s So Naturals Eco-Soy Candles are made using only pure essential oils. Everything from the packaging to the scent is divine. They are clean burning and long lasting and are free from paraffin, perfume, synthetic fragrance and artificial dyes. They have a really delicate scent which isn’t overpowering at all. There is a wide range of scents available, my favourite would have to be Lemongrass.”

5. BEAN BURGERS

Claire says: “The Goodlife bean burgers are a tasty alternative to your normal burger. They are coated in a light spice and full of different beans and flavours inside. Paired with sweet potato chips, they are a really tasty, filling meal.”

6. NATURAL BATH SALTS

Grainne says: “Dead Sea Magik Bath Salts are my go-to product when I am looking to relax and unwind after a long day. I find them great for relieving aching joints and muscles. I like to add a few drops of Atlantic Aromatics lavender essential oil also as I find the two products work well together in promoting a good night’s sleep.”

Evolv, Enniscorthy, Co Wexford

Sales and display assistant Michelle Rooney, allergy testing expert Deirdre Parle, nutritional therapist Davina Dowling, accounts and admin Carmel Devereux, social media and sales expert Jenny Sludds and owner manager Matt Ronan review a magnesium supplement, workout protein, skin wash, antioxidant and body cream

1. AMBER JEWELLERY

Jenny says: “I love the Amber SOS jewellery range, especially the little teething anklets. I have used these over the past three years on my two daughters and seen them help with teething pain, inflammation, dribbling and sleep. I have noticed a huge difference from when the baby is wearing it. It’s an Irish company too.”

2. MAGNESIUM

Matt says: “At night I take Mag365 magnesium powder and it helps me get good sleep and keeps those hard working shoulder and neck muscles relaxed.”

3. WORKOUT PROTEIN

Michelle says: “Flexi-Nutrition Fury Pre Workout Protein is a must. I find it really helps me to get the best out of a workout as sometimes I only have a very short time to squeeze a session in! The taste is the best I’ve ever tried and I’ve never had an energy crash after taking it.”

4. BODY CREAM

Deirdre says: “Seavite Moisture Body Cream is a luxurious, organic cream that comforts and renews even the driest skin. It is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.”

5. FACIAL WASH

Carmel says: “As a mother of two teenage boys I really love Dead Sea Magik Mild Exfoliant and Facial Wash. They are convenient to use in the shower and seem to be keeping outbreaks at bay.”

6. PROBIOTIC SUPPLEMENT

Davina says: “My favourite probiotic at the moment is from ProVen Probiotics – it includes zinc and selenium as well as high strength friendly bacteria. I found this product particularly good for energy as well as digestive health.”

7. IMMUNE BOOSTER

Michelle says: “Dr Wolz KinderImmun Powder is ideal to give kids going back to school as a fab immune-boosting supplement. It contains beta-glucans, colostrum, vitamin C and more... it’s a winner in my book.”

8. ANTIOXIDANT

Deirdre says: “I love Quercetin. It’s an antioxidant that fights inflammation, hay fever, allergies, asthma, skin disorders, gout, stomach ulcers, high cholesterol, heart disease – the list is endless.”

9. ENERGY SUPPORT

Matt says: “Without a doubt my number one product for energy support is Source of Life Gold which I take every day and find there is nothing to compare with it.”
