Goodbye Gas and Bloating

Written by Lee on . Posted in Natural Products, Reviews

All the gassy ladies,

All the gassy ladies,

All the gassy ladies,

Now put your hands up!

Have you ever felt, after eating a big dinner, like you’re carrying a food baby that’s due any minute?

Has a muffin break at your desk had you fall straight into a food-induced coma?

Do mysterious tummy aches and pains bother you after a particular meal?

If you’ve ticked yes and you’re tired of constantly feeling gassy, bloated and like your tummy is on the constant gurgle, I have some news for you.

One of the common signs of poor gut health and digestion is bloating, noticeably after meals. If you experience bloating on a regular basis and feel like it is out of hand, it could be a sign that something else is going on. Being bloated is not the same as carrying an extra tyre around your middle or being overweight.

Being bloated is most often a result of gas and wind trapped in your digestive system, which makes your stomach protrude, your waistband become tighter and your digestion sluggish. This can arise due to inadequate protein digestion, where some foods remain in the gut and start to ferment, or an inability to fully break down sugars and other carbohydrates if you’re lacking in digestive enzymes, or imbalances in gut bacteria.

There are many different reasons why your tummy is playing up — it could be related to a food allergy or intolerance, irregular bowel movements, overconsumption of inflammatory foods or artificial sweeteners, too much alcohol, certain medications, hormonal imbalances, indigestion, leaky gut, microbiome imbalances, or gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), coeliac disease, Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.

IBS is common; research shows it affects around one-third of us, and despite almost 75 per cent of sufferers saying it severely impacts their work, relationships and sex lives, 60 per cent of those have never sought professional help due to embarrassment.

If you’re keen to get to the bottom of things (pun intended!), taking a clinically-proven probiotic can help improve your gut health, reduce your gas, bloating and tummy rumbling (the troubling threesome).

Bioxyne today has announced the results from its clinical trial into the effects of taking progastrim a daily probiotic supplement containing the bacteria strain Lactobacillus fermentum VRI-003, with participants who consumed the probiotic reporting a consistent reduction in gas and bloating compared to those on placebo. Interestingly, women appeared to benefit more from taking the probiotic than men.

ACURE Organics – Skin Care

Written by Lee on . Posted in Natural Products, Reviews

I think we can all agree that different foods and ingredients have different impacts on our bodies. Foods like bananas provide us with carbs, potassium and vitamin B6 that all work towards boosting our energy levels and putting a spring in our step. But, while other ingredients like caffeine seem to offer the same energy benefit, they actually end up causing stress to the body and hormones.

While we may be familiar with which ingredients and foods are best to help our insides function ideally, sometimes it is easy to forget to give the outside of our bodies the same care.

A lot of skin care products available are made up of chemicals, pesticides, synthetic colours, and fragrances that eventually age and damage our skin. If we look after the inside of our bodies by steering clear of processed ingredients, alcohol, sugars and junk food, shouldn’t we do the same for our skin?

We should love AND take care of the skin we're in, so it only makes sense to use natural skincare choices.  ACURE Organics is a family owned company founded on sustainable principles to provide the highest quality natural and certified organic personal care. They only offer products that have pure, simple and effective ingredients in order to help your skin and hair perform at its best.

One of my favourite products is their all-in-one Flower Balm. It is an absolute essential that easily fits into a purse or tote and can be used anytime on any area that needs a little extra moisturising. With organic argan and borage oils, this balm is soothing, calming and protective for the skin. Perfect for these cooler winter days that leave us chapping at the lips and drying out in the wind.

ACURE organic products are 100% vegan and free from parabens, sulfates, silicone, harmful preservatives and nasty chemicals. While they keep out all the bad stuff, what I really love about their beautiful range of products is that they are full of amazing goodness. They're made with pure essential oils and plant-based natural ingredients like aloe vera, argan, rosehip, pomegranate and more. This means they’re high in antioxidants to protect our skin from damage and premature ageing.

Their face mask from the Radically Rejuvenating range is made with a blend of ingredients like moroccan red clay and marshmallow root which are formulated to help your skin become livelier at any age. I know what you’re thinking...there must be a catch though, right? Organic skincare that is based on natural plant science helping your skin to stay youthful...must be some sort of sorcery or at the very least probably way, way out of your price range.

Well, unlike other skin care brands that promise flawless and ageless skin with a wave of a wand and half your life savings, ACURE is actually affordable and super reasonable with their prices. You can get biocellulose face masks from $5.99, fragrance-free body lotion from $8.99 and rejuvenating eye cream from $16.99!

If you’re not already buzzing to buy all their goodies, just wait until you get a whiff of them. From naturally scented coconut towelettes to floral and fruity balms, ACURE’s range will leave you like a bee to a flower...with healthy, wholesome skin and some change left in your pocket!

SK!N Tattoo Cream

Written by Lee on . Posted in Natural Products, Reviews

If you’re all inked up and looking for an all-natural tattoo cream, you’ve come to the right place.

SK!N Tattoo cream is a premium tattoo aftercare cream that won’t leave your skin feeling greasy and is easy to apply. It’s vegan, alcohol-free and Australian-made by a naturopath.

The reason I love the look of SK!N is that I'm constantly asked by people what I recommend they put on their skin instead of chemically laden creams.  You know the ones that just sit on the skin's surface that have a bunch of not so nice ingredients that are being absorbed into your body transdermally?  In my opinion I always recommend trying a product that uses natural ingredients to soothe and heal.  People who have had microblading (semi permanenent eyebrow tattooing) are also benefitting from this luscious cream, using it particularly to help speed up the aftercare process.

This cream uses only naturally selected oils and herbs to soothe and soften the skin. It includes a combination of Vitamin E, shea butter, sweet almond oil as well as arnica and licorice root which are two herbs used for bruising and skin conditions – making it the ultimate after-tattoo care. Pop

It’s suitable for all skin-types and is of the greatest quality to truly soothe the skin.

SK!N Tattoo cream is also recommended as a daily moisturiser to keep ink looking fresh.

I interviewed the founder of the brand recently and here's what he had to say...

1. What inspired you to create SK!N?

I felt there was a real need in the market for premium natural tattoo aftercare. A product suitable for all skin types that people could use to soothe the skin after tattooing and for ongoing use as a tattoo moisturiser. People spend hundreds of dollars getting tattoos and very little time and effort looking after their precious ink afterwards.

2. What are your top tips for caring for tattoos?

a. Apply SK!N Tattoo cream to fresh ink three times daily until any redness and scabs
subside then once daily until finished. If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional
b. SK!N Tattoo cream is recommended daily to nourish and moisturise your tattoo
c. Apply sunscreen to your tattoo with a minimum of 30+ SPF when going outdoors

3. How does naturopathy help when creating a skin care product?

My study of health science, herbal medicine and nutrition helped me formulate a product with the right ingredients to soothe the skin after tattooing. SK!N is the only aftercare product on the market that contains arnica and licorice root, two herbs traditionally used for bruising and skin conditions.

4. What is the formulation of the product?

Caprylic Acid Triglyceride from sustainably sourced Palm Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Macadamia Oil, Olive Oil, Natural Vitamin E, Arnica and Licorice Root.

5. Why is it important to look after your skin?

The skin is the largest organ in the body that contains living and breathing tissue that renews itself every 27 days.

6. What is the most critical time frame for a tattoo?

Within 48 hours of getting a tattoo.

The dairy protein is great for any time of the day, especially when you need a boost.

Dairy Protein Shake Flavours include Banana, Chocolate, Vanilla, Coffee and Strawberry. You might like to also mix and match flavours; banana and chocolate make a really tasty combination.

The plant-based protein contains a complete protein blend to help sustain your energy and keep you nourished and happy. It's great for supercharging your morning routine - just simply blend with 250 ml of your choice of milk, cold water or coconut water and you're sorted! Plant Protein Shake Flavours include Naked, Cocoa and Wildberry. I always use the Naked version when travelling as I find it so convenient to use when I can't find healthy options.

These wonderful nutritional meal replacements are truly one-of-a-kind. It's time to say goodbye to the 'hangry's' for good with The Good Sort and hello to natural nutrition made simple.

Thompson’s Hemp Foods Review

Written by Lee on . Posted in Food & Drinks, Ingredients, Natural Products, Reviews

Ready for a riddle?

What’s got all three Omega fatty acids, comes in three different forms, often feels misunderstood and is sure to put a smile on your dial?

Hemp seeds, of course.

Hemp food holds a wonderful source of nutrients that can be used as a healthy snack, added to salads, smoothies, granolas and more.

Thompson’s have just released their line of Hemp Products and I’m so excited to share them with you.

The line includes hemp seeds, hemp wholefood powder (chocolate & unflavoured) and hemp seed oil (for all your salad dressing dreams).

Hemp seeds are a plant-based protein that contains amino acids, including the essential amino acids that our bodies are unable to produce naturally. That’s pretty good when it comes to plant-based protein! Hemp seeds are also rich in essential fatty acids. It’s also high in dietary fibre which means it’s great for supporting the digestive system, keeping it regular. 

For all my sniffle buddies out there, Thompson's Hemp Products are low allergy and suitable for vegans, meat-eater’s, Keto and Paleo enthusiasts, dairy-free and glutards alike.

Let’s start with the seeds. Thompson’s Hemp Seeds are the most nutritious part of the hemp plant. They naturally contain a whole load of essential fatty acids, protein and fibre, and can boost energy. You can sprinkle them on top of soups, salads, smoothies, curries and all your favourite dishes. The seeds are available in a 225g (RRP $15.45) and 450g (RRP $27.25) pack and serving size is 15g per day (1 heaped tablespoon). 


Throw out your tummy-troubling whey and soy protein powders and say hello to hemp-y goodness.  Thompson’s Hemp Wholefood Powder is rich in both plant-based protein and dietary fibre. It comes in two flavours – chocolate and natural so, you can pick whichever one suits your taste buds. If you’re anything like me though, you’ll choose chocolate. Chocolate always wins. Always. I love adding Thompson's Hemp Wholefood Powder  to my smoothies, breakfast bowls and baking (or raw-ing… you know, raw dessert making). The powder is available in a 450g standing pouch in chocolate (RRP $32.95) and unflavoured (RRP $29.95). Serving size is 30g a day. 


If you’re looking for a new salad dressing, you may want to add some Thompson’s Hemp Seed Oil drizzle to your life. It’s extremely rich in essential fatty acids (79% Omega 3 & 6) and has a delicious nutty flavour so it works well with everything. Thompson's Hemp Seed Oil can be drizzled onto your favourite salads, stir-fries, used to coat veggies after oven roasting and can even be added to your own home-made dips!  It comes in a 200mL bottle (RRP $18.15) and serving size is 10mL per day. 


Thompson’s Hemp Products are now available at pharmacies and health food stores! I’ve been waiting for the day that this nutrient-dense food would be available to the public and now it’s finally here. Oh, no, I’m not crying… something just flew into my eye. I promise.

Four Sigmatic Mushroom Elixir’s Review

Written by Lee on . Posted in Food & Drinks, Ingredients, Natural Products, Reviews


Today, we’re talking about shrooms.

No, definitely not those kinds of shrooms!

We’re talking about medicinal mushrooms.

Medicinal mushrooms have been used for centuries to increase energy, boost brain function, rev up metabolism and strengthen the immune system. They’re also great for relieving stress and aiding sleep. They're basically the new kale. 

Four Sigmatic is a mushroom superfood company who are on a mission to make mushrooms cool again. I know what you’re thinking, *sigh*, another superfood product. While some products are great in theory, they often taste gross and are hard to implement into everyday life. Four Sigmatic have created a deliciously easy way to incorporate these powerfully potent and often overlooked superfood mushrooms into your everyday life. Get ready to upgrade your elixirs, hot chocolates and even your coffee, because these mushrooms are coming at you with a purpose!

Four Sigmatic use a blend of functional mushrooms like chaga, reishi, cordyceps and lion’s mane to create beautiful and delicious products we all can enjoy. While some of you may be mushroom ninjas, I know not everyone has mush-room for facts and figures, so I'll gently guide you through what mushrooms are special and why they're so good for us.

Chaga, also known as the King of Mushrooms, is famous for its medicinal properties. It’s been used since the 17th Century to help guard against several diseases because of it's high antioxidant properties. It’s also highly alkaline to help balance the environment within our body. The next mushroom, cordyceps is extremely famous in Asia and is actually known as a sacred treasure. Cordyceps help produce energy and can even assist our adrenals and stress hormones. Lion’s Mane is another medicinal mushroom that's well-known in traditional Chinese medicine. It's a great booster of brain health and can help to increase cognitive function. Reishi, the ancient and well-studied mushroom, is great for balancing our adrenal system and relieving stress. Phew!

Four Sigmatic is founded by the Finnish Funguys, a small start-up company which I love. They’re the most fun-guys around! They’ve created their very own Elixirs, Mushroom Coffee and Mushroom Cacao. My personal favourite is the Mushroom Cacao. After all, just a spoonful of cacao helps the medicine go down! Their Mushroom Cacao is a smooth and creamy dark chocolate mixed with warming cinnamon and cardamom. It works as an adaptogen to help relieve stress and boost the feel-good hormone known as serotonin. It's the perfect treat to satisfy chocolate cravings and serves as a great afternoon pick-me-up. 

If you’re a coffee drinker, the Mushroom Coffee will help boost your brain and energy, without the usual coffee jitters.

If you're keen to make some medicinal mushroom magic, just dissolve one packet into a cup of hot water, mix it into a smoothie or even add it to raw slices. Hello deliciousness!

Four Sigmatic use the highest quality ingredients which have been wild-picked or log grown. All of the products are organic, vegan, paleo and don’t contain additives, gluten, lactose, white sugar or soy. Everything is 100% safe and tested rigorously.

For more information about Four Sigmatic or to purchase your very own mushroom magic, Follow @FourSigmatic on Instagram, @FourSigmatic on Twitter and FourSigmatic on Facebook.

Upton’s Naturals Jackfruit Review

Written by Lee on . Posted in Food & Drinks, Ingredients, Natural Products, Reviews


For all you vegetarians, vegans, flexitarians and #meatlessmonday’ers, this one’s for you!

You know when you're invited to a barbecue and everyone's eating their pulled-pork burgers or shredded chicken burgers and you're left with a sad, soggy mushroom burger (been there, done that)? It can sometimes feel a little isolating and tastes a lot like you should've eaten before you came.

Well, not anymore! 

Upton's Naturals has created THE ultimate replacement for your sad mushroom burger. Guess what it’s made of?

Jackfruit!

Yes, you read that right – your newest burger is made of fruit. Confused? Do read on...

Jackfruit, native to Southeast Asia, makes for the perfect meat substitute. It’s rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fibre. I guess you could say it’s the jack of all fruits! 

Upton Naturals takes the green young  jackfruit plucked from the tree and does all the dirty (or in this case, very clean) work for us! They prepare, season and package the jackfruit so it’s ready to serve.

Unlike many alternative meat products, Upton Naturals Jackfruit is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, low GI, gluten-free, oil-free and soy-free.  It’s completely natural, vegan, cruelty-free and guilt-free!

Now for the most important part – how does it taste?

Upton’s Naturals Jackfruit comes in six different flavours!

The Original is completely unseasoned so you’re free to make it your own. I like shredding it up and pan-frying it in my favourite seasonings.

If you’re looking for something a little more tangy, the Bar-B-Que Jackfruit may be your perfect fit! I also love the Chilli Lime Carnitas for a bit of a kick. Sriracha Jackfruit makes for a great wings alternative or chilli-swap for your Mexican feast. If you're a lover of all things smoky, Sweet and Smoky may be your new favourite. There’s even a Thai curry flavour; that’s sure to give your meat-loving friends a run for their money!

Upton's Naturals Jackfruit is also extremely versatile – you can try your hands at fresh rice paper rolls, jackfruit stir fries or even a Thai curry burger. Adios sad mushroom burger! 

If you want to read more about Upton's Naturals and their legendary Jackfruit, be sure to check out their website here! It's got lots of tasty recipes. 

Prana Chai Review

Written by Lee on . Posted in Food & Drinks, Natural Products, Reviews


Some people can't wake up without their latte fix, others are addicted to their bulletproof coffee and I, well, I swear by my Prana chai.

For any real chai lovers out there, you’ll agree with me when I say a good cup of chai is more than just a good cup of chai. Chai warms you up from the inside out and feels like a million gentle hugs, cuddling your insides. If home had a taste, it would be chai. My ultimate motivator for finishing my morning walk is a daily cup of home-made chai and it helps me reach the finishing line every morning 

I’m not sure if it’s because of my Indian roots or if it’s because I like to add some spice to my life but if you can't already tell... I’m a little bit obsessed with chai.

So, I can say honestly, as a qualified chai enthusiast, there’s nothing worse than ordering a chai at a café and spying a teabag (#anglo-Indian girl problems) or even worse, the instant powder (just a whole bunch of sugar and additives), scooped out of a tub to serve.

Nothing can quite compare to the silky-smooth texture and aromatic delightful taste of a home-made chai.  

Prana Chai is made with that in mind. It's hand-made each day in Melbourne with only the best natural spices, mixes and of course, love by the owners, Vincent Conti and Mario Minichilli. After travelling across the globe, they, like myself and many others, fell in love with chai. Upon returning home, they worked on developing a chai blend inspired by their travels and love affair with India. This is when they met Koray Gencel and I guess you could say, the rest is chai-story!

I try to be humble with everything I do, but there’s one thing I’m certainly not humble about; I make a very good chai, one of the tastiest in the world. I’ve achieved the equal blend of froth with spice and I just couldn't make chai the way I do without my favourite Prana Chai.

So, what is Prana Chai? The word Prana, originating from Ayurvedic medicine, links to the idea of life-giving force or vital force, which is why it's the perfect name for this chai range. Prana Chai is an honest product with nothing artificial; only love, tea and whole spices.

Masala Chai, which is my favourite of Prana’s range, originates from Ayurveda, the traditional healing medicine system of India. It's a beautiful mix of black tea, aromatic Indian spices and milk. 

If you'd like to get your hands on some chai, be sure to go to Prana Chai's beautiful website here or check them out on instagram here.

If you’ve never made chai before, you need to chai it out! It’s so simple to make and will boost your senses!

Just follow these instructions down below:

  1. Place two or three heaped teaspoons of Prana Chai into a pot
  2. Fill with one cup of your favourite milk (or I do half water half milk)
  3. Heat over the stovetop until it’s been brought to the boil.  Turn off and let steep for five minutes.
  4. Strain and pour into your favourite tea cup
  5. Relax and let that chai take over your whole body!
