In the 21st Century, it has never been easier to learn about health and all the things your body needs to function well. Paradoxically, it has never been more difficult to know what you are actually ingesting in your diet. Food is available at the click of a button, but the dietary details are not. The ingredients are listed on the sides of food packaging, but many of them need a degree in nutrition to be deciphered.
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to tilt the balance back in your favour. All of the natural ingredients that you need to live a healthy lifestyle can be distilled down to an oil form, and taken orally. A brand like Wanderlust has effectively foraged the forest floor for you, finding various plants and herbs, delivering it all in a convenient bottle, like an apothecary of old. There is something for everyone, regardless of your health goals.
Searching for beauty from within.
Have you ever noticed that some people seem to have a radiant glow that eludes most people? Their skin seems somehow luminescent. This is no accident. They will probably get a surplus of various vitamins and minerals in their diet that make them shine so. The Wanderlust Collagen Booster has a meticulously crafted blend of organic Acerola, and a plant called camu camu; a bushy plant natie to the Peruvian and Brazilian sections of the Amazon rainforest. It is incredibly rich in vitamin C which is crucial for the healthy flourishing of your skin. Add to that the baobab tree of the African savannah and Australian outback, and you have a superblend of vitamin C which helps your body protect itself against free radical damage.
Establishing good gut health.
It is an under-recognised fact that the gut plays a significant role in your health; both physical and mental. You have a culture of different bacteria in your biome that needs to be looked after. Don’t panic, this bacteria is actually very good for you! You want to nurture this balance by supplementing more helpful bacteria and probiotics into the mix. Wanderlust have paired Ashwagandha and Prebiotic Gut Goodness together to this end. Ashwagandha has been used in Indian medicine for thousands of years to help calm nerves and improve the body’s response to stress hormones, which can impact your gut biome. Its partner contains probiotics distilled from Jerusalem Artichoke and green banana to keep the gut ticking along happily.
Dreaming of a good night’s sleep.
The science behind sleep is unambiguous: failure to get somewhere between 7-9 hours sleep on a regular basis causes the development of certain cancers, aerobic underperformance, mental health issues, obesity, heart attacks… The list is genuinely almost endless, given the way illness leads to illness. The important thing is to focus on improving your sleep hygiene in the here and now. Wanderlust has a trio of paired oils to help you reach the land of nod. Ashwagandha is again used to calm your nerves, while the oil of the herb valerian also comes into play to relieve tension. FInally, the Inner Calm blend of oils relieves the symptoms of mild anxiety. Anyone who has struggled to fall asleep will know how anxiety inducing this can. Struggle no longer, with this helpful soothing trio of oils.
Finding a better mindset.
There are very few people who could honestly claim to be operating at their full mental capacity. The rest of us walk around in a bit of a haze sometimes, painfully aware of our actual capacity and incongruence between this and our performance. Imagine for a second that you were constantly attentive and clear in your thinking in your job or personal life. It’s quite an enticing prospect. There are a number of natural ingredients which can clear that mental haze freeing you up to give your best. The True North Trio contains Brahmi, which was used in Ayurvedic medicine to help improve memory recall and to improve your mental clarity. Ginseng, a herb native to the Korean peninsula, boosts your energy levels, while the kola nut, a mainstay in western medicine increases your alertness.
Looking for a better immune system.
The average person will come down with the common cold 3-4 times a year, and it can be expected to last anywhere between one to two weeks. Add that all up, and it ain’t pretty: That can be one sixth of your year spent feeling unwell. For an average lifespan of an Australian, that is 14 years of your life. Life is too short. Instead, you can drastically reduce the frequency and length of your sickness with the Immune Daily Trio. The distilled oils of echinacea, vitamin D3 and zinc all support your immune system, so that you can be happier for longer. Many of the cold and flu fighting medicines you might take include these herbs. This is just a more natural way of getting them into your system, with fewer steps between the plant and product.
Supporting your heart health
Hawthorn is a shrub that has many potent ingredients that can help your heart to beat well into old age. It improves circulation which reduces pressure on your cardiovascular system. This means you are far less likely to have issues with blood pressure, and by association, less likely to experience strokes or heart failure. It does it all. The only trade off is that it has a bitter taste, but Wanderlust have thoughtfully paired this with natural orange oil so that it isn’t quite so difficult to get down. Even if it were bitter, the benefits it has on your heart and overall health are so sweet that it would still be worthwhile.
There is a certain peace of mind knowing that you are getting natural ingredients into your body, when a trip down the supermarket aisle leaves you googling impossible chemical names, still none the wiser as to what you are actually eating. Come and have a browse of our extensive Wanderlust products to find the perfect option for you.
