Are you stressed and finding it difficult to sleep during this unprecedented time?
We understand that mental health – like physical health, lies on a continuum – and if you can recognise the early signs of mental unease then you can avoid a below par quality of life. Chronic irritability, anxiety, lack of motivation, sleeplessness or tiredness – all signal the start of something bigger… so catch up with your mental well-being now to bypass some of the preventable problems we will experience as we age.

Good Health Energy & Vitality – Boosts the body’s immune response while managing stress and anxiety linked to uncertainty during this time
Ashwagandha – increases white blood cells and lowers cortisol, Rhodiola – increase serotonin production (mood enhancer) and Siberian Ginseng – gives you the ‘caffeine’ kick we often crave from coffee without over-stimulating the adrenals.
Good Health B Stress Free – stress depletes our B vitamins which are necessary to maintain the functioning of our immune system (vitamin B6 in particular). Therefore, it is important to replenish those depleted B Vitamins during stressful periods. Licorice has anti-viral and adaptogenic (manages stress hormones) properties while Lemon balm & passion flower – anxiolytic – manages anxiety linked to current period of uncertainty.
Good Health Glucozone – high dose withania to help manage stress and anxiety along with blood sugar stabilizers (chromium, zinc, biotin, cinnamon, gymnema) to help with sugar cravings and ‘eating out of boredom’.
Good Health Magnesium Sleep Support – Magnesium has a calming effect on the nervous system and at the same time has an indirectly proportional relationship to our stress hormones (adrenalin and cortisol) – the more we stress the faster we deplete our magnesium stores. Magnesium allows the body to relax at night along with the passion flower and caiifornian poppy that calms the mind and manages anxiety levels. The withania manages high cortisol levels which may be keeping you up at night.
Good Health Men's and Women's Multis – make sure you’re replenishing all your necessary vitamins and minerals during high stress periods. If we are nutrient deficient we are in a immune-compromised state. Men & Women’s Multi contain all our necessary nutrients in the correct dosages in order to maintain an optimally functioning immune response.
Good Health Organic Magnesium Ultra – if a customer is on any anti-depressants/mood-stabilizers/sleeping tablets/pregnant or breastfeeding they can take this (or Mag Powder) instead of Mag Sleep Support (due to herbs).
Good Health Premium Vision – antioxidants protect against free radical damage in the body. Free radicals have been shown to negatively affect the thymus gland (responsible for T-lymphocyte production – very important component of the immune response). Vitamin E, C and beta-carotene are potent direct-acting antioxidants while minerals such as Zinc, Selenium and Copper are critical components of antioxidant enzymes.
