I often get sent bits and pieces to try out. So, I thought I would write a little round up of the family health products that have made it into our lives recently.
6 Vitamin Shot is a healthy energy drink, packed full of vitamins. It also contains the same amount of caffeine as one cup of coffee. The perfect afternoon pick-me-up for busy people on the go. Available as a single shot or a box of 24 for £24.99. A great little drink for busy mums.
Herpatch Serum treats every stage of the cold sore from tingling to healing. The clever white serum forms a thin, transparent film over the cold sore to protect and isolate the affected skin, simultaneously helping to prevent the spread of the virus and accelerate the healing process. Herpatch + uses a combination of liquefied film technology, oxygenated cell regeneration therapy (essential for cell-growth and wound repair) and coated liposome technology to deliver the fast-acting ingredients directly to the root of the cold sore blister. This can speed up healing in as little as two days. It contains red seaweed, which helps it dry instantly to form a protective shield over the cold sore. This means it’s fine to put make-up over the top and it won’t look shiny or wet. £7.99 for 7ml.
ColdZyme is the first over-the-counter, preventative cold treatment to use an enzyme found in deep sea cod called trypsin. Clinically proven, this mouth spray is completely different to most other cold remedy products that will only help reduce the symptoms of a cold. ColdZyme will actually reduce the length and severity of an existing cold. Available in Boots, 20ml £15.99 and ColdZyme One Cold 7ml for £9.99. It is 99% natural.
The Breath Company, scientifically developed by the founder of The California Breath Clinics, dentist and internationally acclaimed ‘Bad breath Guru’ Dr Harold Katz. It is clinically proven to be effective at controlling the sulphur-producing bacteria that can cause embarrassing bad breath. The products target the bacteria living and multiplying on the tongue’s (and throat’s) surface, that causes halitosis. Rather than just masking the odour with powerful flavours. All the products work instantly, and keep working for over 12 hours. The Breath Company contains no harsh ingredients and is free from alcohol, detergents, artificial flavours, colours, animal product and gluten. Perfect to use during pregnancy because it contains no nasties! Available in Boots stores nationwide, prices start from £8.99.
Remescar stretch mark cream (£24.95) uses the same silicone gel that doctors use to help heal scars. It is the most effective stretch mark cream on the market and has many positive clinical trials. It creates a protective silicone barrier over the scar and helps hydrate and heal it.
Purepotions products are made from 100% natural and organic ingredients to help soothe and repair skin in a completely natural way, with no parabens or perfumes. The original skin salvation intensive moisturising ointment is suitable for people prone to eczema, dry itchy skin, psoriasis, dermatitis or for any little skin emergency. The rich, deeply moisturising and restorative salve forms a semi-occlusive barrier, which protects the skin from external irritants and delivers essential fatty acids to dry, irritated areas to nourish and hydrate.
