Eats of Eden, Limerick city

This issue staff members Cillín Cleere, Marie Berkery and Teresa Molloy test Irish kimchi, chewable vitamin B12, a chemical-free moisturiser and sports multivitamin

Store open 9-5pm Mon-Sat during lockdown www.eatsofeden.ie

1. MULTINUTRIENT COMPLEX

Cillín says: “I love Terra Nova Living Multinutrient Complex, not only for all the essential vitamins and minerals it contains but also for the excipients it doesn’t. I like my food free from nasty chemicals as much as possible so it makes sense to me that my supplements should be no different. The vitamins and minerals here are in a highly bioavailable form, which keeps me in tip top shape to run our busy little health food store and lift kettlebells.”

2. ENERGY AND IMMUNE BOOSTER

Marie says: “Both Cillín and I are busy running Eats of Eden and our other business, Functional Kettlebell Conditioning. We like to work hard and workout even harder, so I need a strong, energising multinutrient to keep my mental and physical energy going. I take Revive Active because it mixes easily, tastes great and is effective.”

3. SPORTS MULTIVITAMIN

Teresa says: “I’ve recently taken up TRX (total resistence suspension training) and running and felt like I needed a little extra nutritional support to maintain energy and motivation. So I started taking Terra Nova Living Multivitamin Sport. I really like the magnifood blend that is used in this multi. I find the combination of Siberian ginseng, reishi and cordyceps gives me a gentle uplift without being too over-stimulating.”

4. IRISH KIMCHI

Cillín says: “Life without kimchi would be a very sad life indeed. It’s crunchy, hot, sweet and delicious with just the right amount of sour. I love The Cultured Food Company Raw Sauerkraut Kimchi with fish, rice and nori seaweed sheets - yum! I love the fact that it’s made in Ireland.”

5. MOISTURISER

Marie says: “Lifting kettlebells keeps my body in good shape, but a girl has to look after her face too! Dr Maher’s Absolute 54 Moisturiser is a clean, chemical-free cream with omega 3 essential fatty acids. Since I began using it my skin is noticeably smoother and firmer with a visible reduction in fine lines. Made in Ireland.”

6. CHEWABLE VITAMIN B12

Teresa sys: “I’m not a big fan of eating red meat and never really gave it too much thought, until I noticed my hair starting to thin and become brittle. I began taking Solgar’s chewable Vitamin B12, 1000ug, and found that after 12 weeks my hair had improved dramatically and my energy levels also picked up.”

Nuts and Grains, Mullingar, Co Westmeath

This issue staff members Marion Moffatt, Laura Farrell, Justin Moffatt and Carmel McAdden with onsite nutritionist Grace Kinirons test a natural laundry bar, rose face cream, a multivitamin, magnesium deodorant and immune support

Store open 10-3pm Mon-Sat during lockdown www.nutsandgrains.ie

1. LAUNDRY BAR

Laura says: ”I find the Irish Palm Free Soaps Laundry Bar great for handwashing – it is always packed in my travel bag. It is fantastic at stain removal and well up for removing tomato sauce from white T-shirts!”

2. MAGNESIUM DEODORANT

Marion says: “I’ve had mixed results with natural deodorants over the years, but was willing to give this new Irish-made one by Indeora a go. I found ones containing baking soda worked well, but left my underarms red. This one uses magnesium instead and really works as hard as I do.”

3. IMMUNITY SUPPORT

Grace says: “Terranova Astragalus, Elderberry and Garlic is my go-to for colds and bugs. It has a broad spectrum array of immune-modulating components including garlic, olive leaf, maitake and beta glucans.”

4. MULITVITAMIN WITH COQ10

Justin says: “I’ve just finished a month on the Macánta Multi-Complex with Co-Q10, a brilliant all-round boost of vitamins and minerals with a generous quantity of CoQ10. A quality supplement that’s made in Ireland too!”

5. ROSE FACE CREAM

Carmel says: “I’ve been using the luxurious Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream for years and years and I just love its rich moisturising organic ingredients and glorious fragrance. I’ll never stop using it!”
