Four essential supplements for joint health and flexibility
Four essential supplements for joint health and flexibility

 

Our joints endure a lifetime of wear and tear, with daily exercise routines and restrictive diets taking a serious toll on our flexibility. But, a bad back or a stiff knee could be an indicator your body is suffering from a hidden nutritional deficiency.

 

4 Nutrients to Support Bone Health

The effects can range from irritating to debilitating, but whatever the cause of the pain, these four ingredients have proven to be essential in protecting your joints:

 

  • Glucosamine

Glucosamine is naturally found within the joints of the body but rarely found within our diets. We need it to help build and repair cartilage which helps to aid joint lubrication, strength and flexibility. However, as we age our cartilage steadily breaks down. Ideally, glucosamine should be available to keep cartilage healthy, but if our glucosamine levels are too low our joints can deteriorate causing pain, limited movement and bone deformation. Many people suffering from osteoporosis are recommended to supplement glucosamine to combat its painful side effects.

 

  • Wintergreen

More than just a minty scented oil, Wintergreen has some amazing benefits. When massaged into the skin, this oil is readily absorbed to help warm the affected area and induce relaxation. It is used on the skin as a ‘counter-irritant’ to relieve muscle and joint discomfort. Counter-irritants work by causing irritation that helps to reduce discomfort and swelling in the underlying tissue, often used as a solution for achy joints (rheumatism) and sore muscles.

 

  • Menthol

This herbal oil has been used to treat a wide variety of ailments due to its anti-inflammatory and cooling properties. Known as a natural and effective pain reliever, it instantly brings a cool, soothing relief to inflamed joints by increasing blood circulation. Studies have shown that using this oil has helped patients reduce pain and increase the flexibility of their joints, and has been known to help people with arthritis.

 

  • Magnesium

Magnesium is responsible for over 300 chemical reactions in the body every day and has been proven that it is vital for joint health. It is one of nature’s finest relaxants, it helps relieve muscle tension, stiffness and cramping which assists in reducing unnecessary stress on joints. By encouraging the body to absorb calcium, it prevents calcification in muscles and soft tissue, helping the body maintain flexibility and movement.

 

Put the joy back into your joints

Formulated for direct joint and muscle application, BetterYou Magneisum Oil Joint Spray combines these four essential ingredients in a single, handy spray, which has been proven to absorb up to 5 times faster than traditional tablet supplements.

The Immune System
The Immune System

How does the immune system work?

The immune system plays a vital role within our bodies. It is made up of a number of organs, cells and proteins, which work together to protect your body from any harmful germs or substances by triggering an immune response. When your immune system is working well, it can prevent germs from entering your body and, if harmful cells do get in, it can limit the harm they do.

 

The immune system: how it works

The immune system is your body’s natural defence against harmful viruses and bacteria. It’s made up of a network of cells, tissues, organs and molecules that work together when your body is exposed to harmful germs and is crucial for preventing infection and disease.

 

The key purposes of your immune system are:

  • Fighting disease-causing germs (pathogen) and removing them from your body
  • Recognising and fighting substances from your environment
  • Fighting disease-causing changes within your body
  • When elements your immune system does not recognise (known as an antigen) enter your body, it prompts an immune response, which helps to protect your body and get rid of harmful pathogens.

 

Once you have been exposed to a specific pathogen, your immune system learns about them and develops antibodies to protect you from them when you encounter them in the future. When you are given a vaccine, your immune system is able to build antibodies to those foreign cells and will remember and destroy them if you are exposed to them again in the future.

 

The immune system is made up of two different sub-systems which are closely linked and which work together when an immune response is triggered:

  • Innate immunity – the immunity we’re born with
  • Adaptive immunity – the part of our immune system that learns to fight the germs we come into contact with as we move through life.

 

The key parts of the immune system

The immune system is made up of a number of different parts that work together to protect your body from harmful germs and substances. These parts include:

 

  1. Antibodies

Antibodies are the proteins produced by your immune system to prevent foreign germs, viruses and tumour cells (or antigens) from harming your body. If an antigen is found by your immune system, antibodies will be created which stick to and identify them so that they can be destroyed.

 

  1. Thymus gland

The thymus gland is a small gland situated to the left of your stomach. It plays a key role in the functioning of the immune system by producing the hormone, thymosin, which aides t cell production, a type of white blood cell. Once they’ve been created, these cells operate within other parts of the immune system once it’s activated. The thymus gland is largest in children and produces and matures cells from before birth, through to puberty. Once you reach puberty, it begins to shrink as it has already produced all of the t cells your body will need.

 

  1. Bone marrow

Bone marrow is a crucial part of your immune system. All of your body’s blood cells originate from bone marrow. Bone marrow contains immature cells that divide to form white blood cells (b cells and t cells). Once the cells have matured within the bone marrow and thymus gland, they travel to the lymph nodes and spleen where they sit until the immune system is activated.

 

  1. Spleen

The main function of the spleen is to act as a filter for your blood. It works by removing red blood cells that are old, malformed or damaged and allowing healthy cells to circulate throughout your bloodstream. Within your immune system, the spleen identifies unwelcome bacteria or viruses in your bloodstream. Once a virus is detected, your spleen works alongside your lymphatic system and lymph nodes to create lymphocytes, which act as a defence against foreign germs.

 

  1. Lymphatic system

The lymphatic system is a network of tubes placed throughout your body, which helps to rid your body of toxins, waste and other unwanted substances. The lymphatic system’s primary function is transporting lymph, a fluid that contains the white blood cells that are able to fight infection, throughout the body.

 

Lymph nodes form part of the lymphatic system and are the glands that help to monitor and cleanse lymph as it travels around your body. Your lymph nodes help to filter out any damaged or cancer cells and will help to attack and destroy any harmful bacteria that enters your body.

 

  1. White blood cells

White blood cells are an important part of the immune system. These cells move through the blood and tissue in your body and attack and destroy germs in order to keep your body healthy. There are different types of blood cell, each with its own role within your immune system.

 

What role do vitamins and minerals play in your immune system?

Your body needs a number of vitamins and minerals to function properly and many of them play a role in your immune system too.

 

  • Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 plays a key role in the production of white blood cells, which are crucial for the proper functioning of the immune system. Vitamin B12 is found naturally in a variety of animal foods including:

  • Beef liver
  • Fish
  • Meat
  • Poultry
  • Eggs

It is recommended that vegetarians and vegans take a supplement, as Vitamin B12 is not naturally found in a plant-based diet, though it is often available in fortified foods, such as cereal. However, Vitamin B12 is notoriously hard to absorb through the gut, even if you eat many of the foods listed above, so supplements may be the best way to ensure that your body receives adequate amounts of Vitamin B12. You can find Vitamin B12 in supplements such as Oral Sprays and it is also commonly found in multi-vitamin sprays too.

 

  • Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is mainly produced by your body when your skin is exposed to sunlight and Vitamin D synthesis is triggered. It is also found in a few foods but it is very difficult to ensure adequate levels of Vitamin D within your body through diet alone. Food sources can include:

  • Fatty fish
  • Cheese
  • Mushrooms
  • Fortified cereals and juices

 

Vitamin D contributes to immune system functioning and helps to strengthen it, so ensuring you get enough Vitamin D will help to keep your immune system strong. If you think you may be suffering from a Vitamin D deficiency, you can test yourself at home to find out whether you may need to take additional supplements. Vitamin D supplements can be found in the form of oral sprays, which can deliver the vitamin through the soft tissue of your mouth and allows for optimal absorption.

 

  • Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient that is found in a wide variety of foods such as:

  • Vegetable oils
  • Nuts
  • Green vegetables

 

Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant within your body and is needed to help boost your immune system to fight off harmful bacteria and viruses.

 

  • Iron

Iron is essential for many bodily functions and is needed for immune cell creation and growth to help keep your immune system healthy. Low levels or iron can lead to a weaker immune system and leave you more vulnerable to illness. Your body does not produce iron on its own so it’s important to include it as part of your diet or through supplements. Foods that include iron are:

  • Lean beef
  • Chicken
  • Beans and lentils
  • Dark leafy vegetables such as spinach

Some people struggle to get enough iron from their diets alone so it’s possible to take iron oral sprays to help the iron get straight into your bloodstream. If you’re not sure whether you’re suffering from an iron deficiency, you can take an at-home test.

  • Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and helps to support the cellular functions of the innate and adaptive immune systems. As a water-soluble vitamin, your body will only keep a short reserve of vitamin C so it’s important to take supplements regularly or eat foods containing the vitamin regularly such as:

  • Mango
  • Watermelon
  • Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries
  • Green and red peppers
  • Sweet and white potatoes

 

It’s important to include plenty of these foods in your daily diet but, if you still struggle to get enough vitamin C, most multivitamin supplements contain vitamin C so this can be an easier way to ensure your body has enough.

 

  • Vitamin A

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in a wide range of foods, including:

  • Beef liver and other organ meats
  • Fish
  • Green leafy vegetables
  • Dairy products

Vitamin A is important for immune system functioning so making sure you have enough in your diet will help to keep it working as it should. It is also available in many multivitamin sprays to help ensure you get the right balance of vitamin A in your body.

 

Looking to increase your immune system? Why not try including an immunity support supplement to your daily routine. BetterYou's range of pill-free immune supplements support the body's first line of defence against infection, in an effective and convenient oral spray.

Magnesium for muscle tension—how it works and how to choose the right type of supplement
Magnesium for muscle tension—how it works and how to choose the right type of supplement

Magnesium for muscle spasms plays a crucial part in relaxing muscles and helping them to function normally. If your body is magnesium-deficient, this can cause spasms, tightness and tension in your muscles and joints.

How does magnesium for muscle spasms help with muscle tension?

Muscle spasms

Spasms are painful muscle contractions, and one of magnesium’s functions within the body is to prevent them. Ensuring you take magnesium supplements for muscle spasms helps by encouraging the body to absorb calcium. Calcium is another abundant mineral essential for good health. It also prevents muscles and soft tissues from calcifying (hardening due to excess calcium).

 

Inside the body, calcium and magnesium are in competition. They do this by binding with the same proteins within your muscles. A build-up of calcium causes muscles to over-contract, leading to spasms or twitches.

 

A benefits of magnesium is that is helps to regulate muscle spasms and contractions and allows the muscles to relax. This is why some health professionals advise increasing intake to alleviate and prevent these spasms. Muscle spasms are often considered symptoms of magnesium deficiency. This is where the body lacks the magnesium it needs to stop the contractions. Other muscle spasms are side effects of certain medications or linked to specific health conditions.

 

Although lots of people suffer with nocturnal muscle spasms when sleeping, supplementing magnesium for muscle spasms has had positive results. It has worked particularly well in treating pregnant women and the elderly.

 

If your muscles spasm or twitch after you’ve been exercising or standing for a long period of time, this might be a sign that you're deficient in magnesium. Supplementing magnesium for muscle spasms could be a good place to start. As magnesium dosages vary depending on health and lifestyle, always check the packaging first. Ensuring you receive the correct dosage will make the magnesium supplement more effective.

 

Muscle strains

A muscle strains when it over stretches or tears. This kind of injury is quite common, and most frequently happens to:

  • Neck muscles
  • Back muscles
  • The Ham string

Straining a muscle can cause it to tighten and/or spasm as well as feel very sore. Supplementing transdermal magnesium for muscle spasms, such as bath flakes or a magnesium oil spray, can help limit any tension by helping the muscle to contract and relax.

 

Why is magnesium good for the muscles?

Magnesium for muscle spasms is absolutely necessary to help proper muscle function. Magnesium works with other essential minerals in your body to keep the muscles loose and flexible.

 

When you exercise or do some kind of physical activity, magnesium relaxes your muscles and controls their contractions. It also helps lessen the build-up of lactic acid, which can cause muscular tension. This then enables your muscles to get the oxygen they need. Magnesium sport performance supplements can help this process by relaxing your muscles.

 

An important role in your body’s energy production is ensuring you take enough magnesium for muscle spasms. Much of your energy comes from adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a molecule that converts energy from food sources into fuel. This fuel is then used for other bodily processes. This process contributes to proper muscle function. Your body produces growth factors with the help of magnesium for muscle spasms. These are proteins that facilitate muscle growth and strength over the long term.

 

Not having enough magnesium in your body puts you more at risk of suffering muscle:

  • Spasms (especially in the legs or feet)
  • Tightness
  • Aches
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue

 

Which type of magnesium is best for muscle tension?

Your magnesium for tension intake depends on two things:

  • Your diet (dietary magnesium)
  • Any supplements you take

 

With supplements, it’s important to understand that there are several different forms of magnesium for muscle spasms. Each one has a different purpose or effect on your body. Some forms, such as oral sprays, are easier for your body to absorb than others, a characteristic known as “bioavailability”.

 

Magnesium chloride

Probably the most common type of magnesium for muscle spasms, magnesium chloride is extracted from natural sources in rock or saltwater. All BetterYou’s magnesium products use a highly pure kind of magnesium chloride taken from the Earth’s crust.

It’s used in both:

  • Oral magnesium supplements—those you take by mouth, such as pills and tablets

Transdermal magnesium supplements—those you absorb through the skin, such as oils, bath flakes, lotions and sprays (also known as topical magnesium).

 

How it helps muscle tension

Magnesium chloride is known to be effective at treating muscle spasms. It:

  • Helps relieve muscle tension, tightness and stiffness
  • Aids working muscle tissue, allowing for quicker muscle recovery after strenuous exercise
  • Enables calcium absorption in bones

 

Other benefits of magnesium for tension

  • Said to have the best bioavailability—in other words, the body can absorb it better than any other forms of magnesium
  • Encourages restful sleep, and magnesium helps improve sleep quality
  • Aids digestion
  • Repairs and replenishes skin

 

Magnesium sulphate

Better known as Epsom salts, magnesium sulphate contains magnesium, sulphur and oxygen. Like magnesium chloride, it can be taken transdermally (through the skin) or orally. Most people take Epsom salts by dissolving them in a hot bath or foot soak. As they have a lower concentration of magnesium than magnesium chloride, they have a lower bioavailability too.

 

How it helps muscle tension?

Magnesium sulphate has analgesic properties that help to soothe sore muscles such as muscle spasms.

 

Other benefits of magnesium sulphate for muscle spasms

  • Draws toxins out of the pores
  • Laxative effects help relieve constipation (when taken as tablets)

 

Magnesium malate

Magnesium malate is made by combining magnesium with malic acid. This acid is found in fruits such as oranges. Together they make a magnesium salt that has a higher level of bioavailability than other forms such as magnesium oxide and magnesium sulphate.

 

How it helps muscle tension?

Magnesium malate relieves muscle tension by relaxing tense areas. It is for this reason it is so effective as being a magnesium that helps muscle spasms.

 

Other benefits of magnesium malate

  • Supports hundreds of enzyme processes inside the body
  • Helps the cells in your body produce and use energy

 

What causes muscle tension?

The body has so much muscle tissue, tension is extremely common and can occur in nearly every area. Mostly it comes as a result of straining the muscle during physical activity, or injuring the muscle doing strenuous work or exercise.

 

Neck tension in particular is usually the result of a strain through exercise, heavy lifting or sitting, standing or sleeping in an awkward position. Back tension is also very common and can occur in joints and bones as well as the muscles and soft tissue. It might come as a mild but constant ache or a sudden, sharp soreness.

 

However, there are also certain medical conditions that cause muscle tension, such as muscle spasms. These include:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Flu, or other similar infections
  • Thyroid problems
  • Being potassium-deficient

Cervical cancer: Act now before it is too late

The cervix is the lower part of the uterus, an organ of the female reproductive tract. It connects the vagina with the main body of the uterus, acting as a gateway between them. Cervical cancer occurs when the DNA in the cells lining the cervix undergo mutations causing the cells to grow and multiply uncontrollably. The abnormal cells accumulate and form a mass known as a tumor. According to the World Health Organisation, nearly all cervical cancers are linked to infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV).  HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection and is spread by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with an infected person. Other risk factors include smoking and a weakened immune system. According to recent statistics from the HPV information centre (2021), cervical cancer ranks 3rd as the most frequent cancer among women in Mauritius and 2nd as the most frequent cancer among women aged between 15 and 44 years old.

 

Cervical cancer symptoms

The most common signs and symptoms include:

  • pain during sexual intercourse
  • bleeding after sexual intercourse
  • more vaginal discharge than usual
  • vaginal discharge having an unusual colour and strong odour.
  • vaginal bleeding between periods
  • menstrual bleeding that is longer or heavier than usual
  • pelvic pain

 

Prevention

Risk of cervical cancer can be reduced by:

  • HPV vaccine

HPV vaccine is safe and prevents cervical cancer. The WHO advocates two doses of HPV vaccine spaced at least 6 months apart for all girls aged 9-14 years. The most effective way to prevent HPV infection is to get vaccinated before having sex for the first time. The HPV vaccine is not recommended for women older than age 26 years since more women belonging to this age range have already been exposed to HPV.

  • Routine Pap tests

Pap tests can detect precancerous conditions of the cervix, so they can be monitored or treated in order to prevent cervical cancer.

  • Practice safe sex

Take necessary measures to prevent sexually transmitted infections by using a condom during sex and limiting the number of sexual partners.

  • Stop smoking

Women who smoke are more at risk of developing cervical cancer than those who do not smoke. Tobacco by-products have been found in the cervical mucus of women who smoke and these substances damage the DNA of cervix cells which then lead to cervical cancer.

 

At MedActiv, we believe that health education leads to actions and changes in lifestyle which are conducive to health. This January during cervical cancer awareness month, MedActiv encourages HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening. HPV vaccine is available in our pharmacies upon request. Ask advice from your doctor or pharmacist.

  1. Buckwheat breakfast porridge

In order to make this buckwheat breakfast porridge, it is best to soak the groats overnight to help ensure they are soft and easier to blend into a porridge, as limited soaking time might create a grittier porridge.

The ratio is 3:1 water to buckwheat groats.

Take a bowl, add water and buckwheat groats and let it soak for the night in the fridge. In the morning the buckwheat grouts will look and taste as if they were cooked into a porridge. Add milk, honey and vanilla to give the porridge a subtly sweet flavour, and topped it with fresh berries and shredded coconut, however, you can use any toppings of your choice.

Place  à la détox !
Place à la détox !

Janvier : Une fois les fêtes terminées, place à la détox

Le mois de janvier est souvent synonyme de détox après l'enchaînement de menus festifs et caloriques et nos excès d’alcool pendant les fêtes de fin d’année. S’il est essentiel de savoir se faire plaisir, détoxifier son corps est pareillement une bonne idée pour repartir sur les bonnes bases durant cette nouvelle année qui débute.

Pourquoi avoir recours au détox ?

Bien que nôtre corps dispose d’un système d’épuration très efficace via les émonctoires (le foie, les reins, les intestins, la peau et les poumons) il arrive que ces organes d’élimination soient affaiblis ou que les surcharges soient trop importantes pour être évacuées dans leur intégralité. Dans ce cas, l’organisme stocke les toxines et toxiques dans les tissus, ce qui, à terme, va perturber le bon fonctionnement des cellules. L’accumulation des toxines dans les cellules provoque la fatigue, les maux de tête, les problèmes de peau, le surpoids, les troubles du sommeil, le rhumatisme, les problèmes de circulation ou de digestion. Ces symptômes, d’abord passagers, peuvent finir par devenir chroniques. En stimulant les organes émonctoires et en purifiant l’organisme, la détox va permettre au corps de se libérer de toutes les toxines accumulées et, retrouver ainsi un fonctionnement optimal, pour une meilleure santé.

 

Comment faire une détox ?

La première étape de la détox consiste à boire beaucoup d’eau. Cela peut paraître évident et simple mais boire de l’eau est l’un des secrets beauté pour conserver un corps sain mais aussi une belle peau ou encore une belle crinière. L’eau facilite le travail des organes émonctoires (surtout les reins), évacue les toxines hydrosolubles, favorise le transit intestinal et fluidifie le sang. On veille à boire au minimum 1,5 à 2 litres par jour, en étalant la consommation sur la journée.

Ensuite, il est nécessaire de stopper l’alcool, les produits transformés et les aliments trop salés, gras et/ou sucrés, de réduire les féculents et de contrôler et bien choisir les matières grasses. Il est également important de privilégier les aliments riches en micronutriments qui accélèrent l’élimination et favorisent la mobilisation des réserves adipeuses et de consommer des jus de légumes et/ou de fruits. Les fruits et légumes contiennent tous les nutriments indispensables pour éliminer : du potassium qui accélère le drainage, des fibres qui piègent les toxines et les évacuent dans les selles, des antioxydants qui réduisent les inflammations et boostent les organes émon­ctoires. Leurs fibres nourrissent aussi les bactéries amies de la flore intestinale, dont l’équilibre a été perturbé par l’abus de graisses et d’aliments protéinés des fêtes. La cuisson des légumes détruit beaucoup d’enzymes, nécessaires pour un corps en bonne santé. Ainsi, la détox est encore plus efficace lorsqu’on mange des aliments crus. On peut notamment en consommer grâce à de savoureux smoothies.

 

Comment faire après un exces d’alcool ?

Bien que l’alcool ne s’elimine pas par l’urine, l’ingestion de certaines boissons contribute à neutraliser ses effets. L’alcool est un puissant toxique pour toutes les cellules, les microorganismes inclus (raison pour laquelle on l’utilise comme désinfectant). Dans le corps humain, deux types de cellules sont principalement endommagées par la consummation d’alcool: les neurones et les hépatocytes (cellules du foie). De plus, l’alcool est une substance considérée comme cancérigène: sa consummation, même modérée, favorise le cancer du sein, de l’oesophage et du foie entre autres.

Nous vous proposons trois boissons avec pour objectifs de neutraliser autant que possible les effets toxiques de l’alcool sur l’organisme, principalement le cerveau et le foie et de tonifier le système nerveux.

Vous pourrez facilement vous procurer certains des ingredients pour la preparation des boissons  dans nos rayons pour les produits de Wellness Warehouse qui sont desormais disponsible dans nos diverses pharmacies.

 

 

Smoothie pouvoir cérébral

Ingrédients : chou rouge, carottes, pomme, jus de citron

Protège les cellules du foie des dommages causes par l’alcool.
