This issue owner Ciaran Toner and co-owner Michelle McCann review Irish raw honey, an elderberry complex, co-enzyme Q10 and help for anxiety.

1. MALE MULTIVITAMIN

Ciaran says: “Full Spectrum Multivitamin Complex by Terranova is great for supporting everything from immunity, hormonal health, mental health and much more. The fantastic array of herbs, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals has really supported my nutritional needs for optimal health and wellness.”

2. ANXIETY HELP

Michelle says: “I always recommend Viridian L-Theanine and Lemon Balm to customers who suffer from anxiety – it helps to support mental focus and reduce anxiousness.”

3. CO-ENZYME Q10

Ciaran says: “A must-have for everyday optimal health, athletes and those seeking to improve energy and help reduce oxidative stress. Co-enzyme Q10 has a unique ability to recycle other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E and effectively clean the mitochondria of oxidative stresses. I take Terranova CoQ10 100mg as it contains no additives and has added wholefoods to allow for optimal absorption of this powerful antioxidant.”

4. ELDERBERRY COMPLEX

Ciaran says: “With the colds season on the way it can be a real challenge to avoid the dreaded lurgy. Terranova Astragulas, Elderberry and Garlic Complex is a unique blend of sulphur containing foods, herbs and spices such as cayenne pepper and unique phytonutrients contained in astragalus. A must have for winter.”

5. IRISH RAW HONEY

Michelle says: “The health benefits of raw honey are widely known, including healing wounds, fighting off infections and supporting the immune system with a wide array of phytonutrients with antiviral and antibacterial properties. And it tastes great too.”

6. ORGANIC PUMPKIN SEEDS

Ciaran says: “As part of my wholefood and plant-based diet, pumpkin seeds are a great source manganese, magnesium, iron, zinc and copper, healthy polyunsaturated fats and a rich source of antioxidants. A great addition to any salad, smoothie or breakfast.”

Goodness Me, Youghal, Co Cork

This issue owner Siobhan Dempsey, shop assistants Catherine O’Callaghan and Anne Nolan, acupuncturist and craniosacral therapist Niamh Hennessy and massage therapist Agnes Guiney review flower remedies, a magnesium powder, a sports supplement and natural lip balms.

1. SPORT ELECTROLYTES

Catherine says: “Electrolytes are electrically charged minerals and Viridian Sports Electrolyte Fix contains these minerals in the correct amounts to help maintain optimal hydration for nerve and muscle function. By adding just half a teaspoon to my one litre water bottle post exercise I feel less fatigued. Great when training for that marathon!”

2. NATURAL LIP BALMS

Siobhan says: “Dublin Herbalists have four different lip balm flavours – sweet orange, honey, peppermint and pomegranate, which is my favourite. Made from 100% natural ingredients, the texture is lovely and the balm very nourishing. What I really like is the fact that it doesn’t melt when you keep it in your pocket like some balms do. I love the fact that it’s Irish too.”

3. MAGNESIUM POWDER

Agnes says: “I have been taking Mag365 for the last few months and I am finding it very beneficial. I get a better night’s sleep and it helps to reduce my stress levels. It has also been great to reduce any aches, pains or muscle tension and helps with digestion and gut health. I recommend it to my clients all the time.”

4. MULTIVITAMIN LIQUID

Anne says: “I began taking Nature’s Plus Source of Life Gold Liquid just over two months ago as I was constantly feeling exhausted and lacking energy. In a very short time, I can honestly say I began to feel the benefits. I am way more energised, my hair and skin have also improved. It has a tasty tropical flavour and the added benefit of being gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians.”

5. FLOWER REMEDIES

Niamh says: “Bach Flower Remedies are amazing. They are very gentle as they work on an emotional level and can be taken with other medications. As a therapist I love to recommend them to my clients. There are 38 individual remedies which can be taken individually or up to five remedies can be blended together. I regularly blend them for my clients with amazing results.”

6. NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT

Siobhan says: “Revive Active is a nutritional supplement combining 26 amazing active ingredients. When I take it my energy levels vastly improve. It comes in an easy to take sachet that you mix with water. It’s my number one supplement to keep my energy levels up and my stress levels down. And what’s really great is that it’s gluten free, vegan friendly and Irish too.”
