The handy cheat to help combat hay fever eye and eye irritation www.eyelergy.co.uk

Hay fever is one of the UK’s most common allergic conditions, affecting around 10 million adults and children every year. Hay fever is an allergic reaction to pollen released from trees and plants, and common symptoms include sneezing, runny nose and red itchy eyes. Although usually worse around freshly cut grass and during warm weather, this troublesome condition is not limited to fleeting summer days and can occur at any time when pollen levels are high – and in practice that means any time between spring and late autumn. Eyelergy not only helps to offer relief and protection from pollen but also from other airborne allergens commonly found in the home such as pet dander and dust mites. This versatile allergy protection helps to relieve eyes from irritation all year round.

Eyelergy eye drops are specially designed to combat the symptoms of hay fever eyes and eye irritation such as dry eye or irritation caused by dust and other airborne pollutants. The drops’ protective barrier gel technology rinses and shields the eyes from allergens and irritants such as pollen, mould, dust mites, pet dander, dust and airborne pollutants. Available in packs of 20 handy-sized single-dose droppers, Eyelergy eye drops are perfect for use on the go whenever required. What’s more, because each single-use dropper is sterile, the drops contain no preservative and so can also be used by contact lens wearers.

Why are our eyes particularly vulnerable to the effects of pollen? Unlike the nose and lungs, the eyes have no filtration devices (e.g. cilia or mucus) for expelling allergens. The main defence mechanism in the eye is the tear film, which provides a barrier function and dilutes and rinses away foreign bodies reaching the eye. Normally this rinsing process goes unnoticed. The problem with pollen and other allergens is that they cause an immune reaction which can disrupt the protective tear film. This then allows foreign bodies to reach the eyelid lining, causing even more irritation, thus leading to a spiralling vicious circle and over-production of tears. Eventually the eyes stream profusely with watery tears that afford little protection.

How does the gel barrier technology protect the eyes/does the gel barrier technology prevent irritants reaching the eye directly? Eyelergy’s gel formulation is activated by our normal blinking mechanism, and creates a protecting, lubricating and hydrating film over the surface of the eye. By blinking, the protective and lubricating effect of Eyelergy is maintained between applications by re-spreading the drops over the eye surface. This barrier works to stabilise the tear film, helping to restore the barrier and rinsing actions necessary to keep irritants and allergens out of harm’s way.

Why do eye drop formulas with preservatives lead to further irritation in contact lens wearers? Preservatives are essential in multidose formulas to prevent microbial contamination and spoilage of the drops once opened. Because Eyelergy is specially presented in sterile, single-dose droppers, this is not an issue and therefore the formula is preservative-free. This is important because preservatives too have the potential to cause eye irritation and sensitisation. Further, when used with contact lenses, these ingredients can accumulate in/under the lens, causing even more problems and sometimes even tissue damage. This explains why eye products containing preservatives are not recommended for long term use, or for use with contact lenses.

Is Eyelergy only suitable for those suffering from hay fever? Eyelergy is suitable for people suffering with hayfever eyes, allergy eyes of any type and with dry eye symptoms. Foreign bodies such as dust, pet dander, mould spores and pollen can all cause allergic irritation in the eye, and Eyelergy can provide effective relief from any of these. Eyelergy also helps to relieve dry eyes. Although the symptoms may not be the same for everyone, typically these include a sensation of having something in the eye and possibly some discomfort, itching, redness or inflammation. Paradoxically, dry eye sometimes involves excessively watery tears.

Who can use Eyelergy? Eyelergy is suitable for use by children from 6 years of age, adults, pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers. Contact lens wearers can also use Eyelergy because it is preservative-free.

How regularly can Eyelergy be used? Eyelergy can be used as frequently as needed, whether for the relief of hayfever/allergy eyes or for dry eyes. Often this is around 3 or 4 times a day. It is advisable to consult a doctor, optician or pharmacist if symptoms continue for a long period of time or worsen

Prevasore.. so essential during the cold, blustery Winter months which bring with them the threat of dry, chapped and sore lips, and for some even worse, cold sores. www.prevasore.co.uk

THE FACTS

Available NOW • Priced at £6.95 • Available exclusively at Prevasore.co.uk • Prevents and treats sore, cracked lips • Helps heal cold sores and prevent their recurrence.

CLINICAL DATA

The cold, blustery Winter months bring with them the threat of dry, chapped and sore lips, and for some even worse, cold sores. Whether you are a cold sore sufferer or prone to sore, cracked lips, the Prevasore gel formula helps to create a hydrating barrier on the lips to increase moisture and to aid healing.
The HSV-1 virus is one of the most common human viral infections, and research shows that as many as 45% of the population is reported to suffer from recurrent cold sores* which can last two weeks; long enough to threaten your social plans and work commitments.

In a study of 54 volunteers (male and female, aged 18-70 years) who suffer from dry or cracked lips, Prevasore was applied multiple times a day for 5 days.
Here are the findings after 5 days: • 81% increase in lip hydration • 94% reduction in lip dryness • 99% reduction in lip cracking

THE FORMULA


Prevasore’s unique formulation is designed to encourage healthy lips using emollient and moisture preserving ingredients, in a pale green gel base, that forms an effective barrier when it comes into contact with the lips. The blend of protective ingredients rebalances the moisture levels within the skin, restoring softness, suppleness and encourages healing when lips are chapped and sore. By forming a barrier, Prevasore increases the amount of moisture retained in the lips and protects against harsh environments.

WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

“Chapped lips and cold sores are common occurrences during the cold winter months, something you can help prevent by creating a barrier between the lip and harsh environment. Prevasore does just this. Its specially designed formula softens and moisturises the skin on and around the lips, thereby maintaining their barrier properties. Equally by keeping the lips in good condition it helps accelerate the natural healing process of the area so lips look and feel supple and healthy.” Dr. Kuldeep Minocha, General Practitioner

“To get this winter’s bold lip look you need the best possible base on which to apply your lipstick; smooth, hydrated lips are a must. Beat the elements by moisturising and hydrating the lips with Prevasore throughout the cold snap to help prevent and treat sore, cracked lips.” Jackie Tyson, Celebrity Makeup Artist

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

“I have been delighted with Prevasore. It is the best lip treatment I have used and I have tried many over the years. I have recommended it to my daughters as they are fellow sufferers of ‘winter lips’!” Marjorie, East Sussex

“Absolutely brilliant, it does what it says – I haven’t had a cold sore since I started using it.” Rosemary, West Yorkshire

“Ever since using Prevasore my lips have never felt so soft and it has completely stopped cold sores. Even when I can feel a tingle of one coming on I pop a bit of Prevasore on my lips straight away and the tingle goes and no cold sore appears! It’s literally like magic. I will continue to use Prevasore and even my sister and work colleagues now use it. Thank you again!” Sam, London

“I have suffered from cold sores for many years and have tried a variety of different products. I have found Prevasore to be the most effective, and least expensive, so far.” Ruth, West Midlands

“Prevasore is the best lip therapy I have used. It has even passed the ‘Swiss Alps’ test. Despite the dry air there, I do not suffer from very dry, sore lips now. Just at night, in the morning and perhaps the occasional use during the day is all I need.” John, Surrey
“I have always suffered with my lips. I have tried everything but Prevasore is the only thing that works. It reduces the swelling very quickly and then the blisters aren’t so aggressive. Thank you very much; I’m a very happy customer.” Naomi, Nottinghamshire

I will make a secret note on my smartphone about how funny I can be- even when its others laughing at me.

I will draw a sketch of the company boss’ face when he lost his keys and stick it up the office kitchen fridge- then sign it.

Whenever I talk about my past failures I will do so in the third person and get everyone entertained.

Mindful Chef – helping make 2018 your healthiest year yet! www.mindfulchef.com

FACEBOOK | TWITTER | INSTAGRAM | PINTEREST | YOUTUBE

We all have the best intentions when it comes to making New Year’s resolutions but often end up falling off the wagon and losing our way two weeks in. Forget ‘January detox’ or ‘dry January’, Mindful Chef, the healthy recipe box delivery service holds the key to a long-term healthy lifestyle, a resolution you can stick to, and it’s #NotJustForJanuary.

Mindful Chef, the recipe box delivery service backed by Victoria Pendleton CBE, Sir Andy Murray and Will Greenwood MBE, launched in 2015 by Myles Hopper and Giles Humphries, offers a simple solution to healthy eating which can be easily incorporated into your everyday life. Myles and Giles were inspired to launch Mindful Chef due to busy schedules and finding it hard to eat healthily because of their hectic lifestyles. Although recipe box delivery companies existed at the time of their need, none were truly healthy. The pair believe that the key to a healthier life is reducing your intake of gluten and that refined sugars and refined carbohydrates should be avoided. What makes Mindful Chef different is their ability to create well-balanced, imaginative recipes whilst still being 100% gluten-free. Their healthy recipe boxes include no refined carbs and therefore avoid high-carb fillers such as pasta or bread. Instead they guarantee genuinely exceptional quality, gluten-free, dairy-free and locally sourced fresh produce. Working with local, sustainable farmers in the West Country, the award-winning meat and fish included in the recipes are also stocked in Fortnum & Mason and Harrods.

Each recipe and ingredient used is scrutinised by Mindful Chef co-founder, personal trainer and nutritional coach Myles Hopper. Myles works closely with highly reputable nutritionists and chefs in the UK to create imaginative, varied and balanced recipes. The instructions are simple to follow and the meals are easy to make; helping make chefs out of even the most inexperienced of home cooks.

Copy of Craft bag shotLizzie, a Mindful Chef customer commented: “We’ve tried a number of different at-home, cook-your-own, food services in the UK and US (Plated, Blue Apron, Green Chef, HelloFresh, and now Mindful Chef). Of all the brands we’ve tried, Mindful Chef has the best combo: healthy, delicious, and adventurous. We’ve experienced many start to relax on the nutrition (both with less veg and more tricks like frying, cream, cheese, etc). If you’re seeking healthy but still interesting and yummy, Mindful Chef has been my favourite to date.”

Natasha Cotton, a second Mindful Chef customer says: “All these ‘healthy food’ delivery websites that I have seen online have always seemed too expensive, too much hard work after a long day at work and just basically too good to be true. I looked into Mindful Chef after reading about them in Women’s Health mag and I can honestly say I have never looked back!”

Mindful Chef is not a fad diet. As well as offering a recipe box delivery service the brand works hard to provide customers and those who engage online with useful hints and tips focused towards living a balanced, mindful lifestyle. Customers have experienced health benefits such as clearer skin, more energy and the first steps to feeling more toned and lean.

January can be a hard month and Mindful Chef recognise this. Myles recommends:

Eat at home more often and get into the habit of making your own lunches: With 4 out of 10 Brits choosing to eat at home, eating in is the new eating out and it’s good for you! Save eating out for special occasions and make sure to set time aside to enjoy cooking.
Avoid or lower your refined carbohydrate intake: Often found in foods such as white bread, white rice, pasta and starchy vegetables, refined carbohydrates are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream causing risky spikes in blood sugar and insulin levels. Eating refined carbohydrates in excess can lead to mood swings, weight gain, insulin resistance, heart disease and diabetes. Making small changes and switches to healthier alternatives can make a huge difference. Our boxes don’t contain any refined carbs and therefore avoid high-carb fillers such as pasta or bread. Instead we guarantee genuinely exceptional quality, gluten-free, dairy-free and locally sourced fresh, produce. Working with local, sustainable farmers in the West Country, the award-winning organic meat and fish included in our recipes are also stocked in Fortnum & Mason and Harrods.
Meditate: As Mindful Chefs paying more attention to the present moment and our mental wellbeing is hugely important. Just ten minutes of meditation helps us to enjoy the world around us and better understand ourselves. Meditation doesn’t have to be done sat crossed legged on the floor in silence, try getting off the tube or bus a stop or two early and walk the rest of the way alone. Put your phone away and take time to listen to your thoughts, understand your emotions and take in the world around you.
Exercise regularly: If you hate exercising then find an activity or hobby you enjoy that will increase your fitness without feeling like ‘exercise’. It could be cycling, surfing, dancing, rock climbing or even hiking, whatever it may be, make sure you enjoy it and you will reap the rewards before you know it. Better yet, encourage a friend to join you and you’re more likely to stick to it beyond January. If you don’t like the gym or aren’t sure what exercise to do take a look at this easy workout plan you can do at home: blog.mindfulchef.com/3-workouts-to-do-at-home/
Switch off: 73% of Brits say they’d struggle to go a day without checking their phone or computer. We understand how useful technology can be but switching off can be just as beneficial. Make sure to eat lunch away from your desk and take an hour or two a day to switch off completely. Doing so will aid sleep, reduce stress levels and make time for reconnecting with those around you.

Give your body a little help this festive season Drinking green tea can help the “detoxification ” process

www.clipper-teas.com

FACEBOOK | TWITTER | PINTEREST | INSTAGRAM | YOUTUBE

With the holiday season a time to eat, drink and be merry it’s no surprise that these festivities can take a toll on our bodies. In order to give us a helping hand this Christmas, Clipper Teas spoke to Nutritional Therapist Libby Limon to hear how the new Clipper Organic and Fairtrade Green Tea range can help us detox from the inside out. “The concept of “detoxing” is often misunderstood. To be optimally healthy, we cannot overload our bodies one week and be virtuous the next. Our bodies are detoxing all the time, and in real time. If we ingest something that needs to be detoxed our body will not wait until the next week, it will do it immediately and as efficiently as possible to minimise any damage to our cells. Adding food and drink to our daily diet that supports the detoxification system can protect us against overindulgence, keep us feeling vibrant and keep our skin clear and glowing. The liver is the main organ of detoxification. It works in 2 phases; Phase I processes the initial toxins in preparation for phase II where they are neutralised and eliminated. Often the intermediary product between phase I and phase II is more damaging to our bodies than the original toxin. For example, when alcohol is broken down in the liver it creates Acetaldehyde, and it is this chemical that is behind many of the symptoms of a hangover and the health risks associated with drinking too much. For this reason, it is important to balance your phase I and II, particularly enhancing the body’s ability to cope in phase II. Green tea is one of my favourite hacks for boosting overall detoxification and giving the liver some daily support.

The Clipper Organic and Fairtrade Green Tea has high levels of catechins: polyphenols, or plant chemicals, that work in your liver in three ways: • They up-regulate your phase II liver detoxification pathways meaning that they are more efficient in neutralising and eliminating toxins and help prevent damaging intermediary products from phase I being recirculated in the body.

• They protect the liver cells themselves keeping them healthy.

• They encourage the body to make glutathione, our internally made liver antioxidant. Stores of glutathione are particularly important for alcohol detoxification.

Drinking 2-3 cups of Clipper Organic and Fairtrade Green Tea every day is a good way to support your detoxification system and allows the body to be better prepared from a little overindulgence this festive season”. Clipper recommends the Organic Detox Green Tea with Elderflower, Nettle Fennel & Citrus flavours. The new Clipper Organic and Fairtrade Green Tea range is comprised of 14 flavours and is available from £1.99 from shop.clipper-teas.com.

The Wait is finally over. OLITIA . The Olive Tea.

FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER

Ten years ago, what brewed as a dream of cultivating olives has surfaced as the world’s first processed olive tea. This joint venture of Olitia Foods and the Govt of Rajasthan has given farmers a new livelihood, bringing this modern day elixir to life.

The olive tea is a modern day elixir obtained from olive plants grown in 5000 acres of farms in Rajasthan. It has been found that Olive Tea offers a lot of health benefits. Being rich in antioxidants and vitamin C and being free of caffeine, it becomes an alternative to the daily drinks that people consume at large such as Green Tea, Coffee, Black Tea and more. In this fast-paced life, almost everyone is stressed. A sip of the golden goodness of olive tea every evening would relieve you of your worries.

The handy cheat to help combat hay fever eye and eye irritation www.eyelergy.co.uk

Hay fever is one of the UK’s most common allergic conditions, affecting around 10 million adults and children every year. Hay fever is an allergic reaction to pollen released from trees and plants, and common symptoms include sneezing, runny nose and red itchy eyes. Although usually worse around freshly cut grass and during warm weather, this troublesome condition is not limited to fleeting summer days and can occur at any time when pollen levels are high – and in practice that means any time between spring and late autumn. Eyelergy not only helps to offer relief and protection from pollen but also from other airborne allergens commonly found in the home such as pet dander and dust mites. This versatile allergy protection helps to relieve eyes from irritation all year round.

Eyelergy eye drops are specially designed to combat the symptoms of hay fever eyes and eye irritation such as dry eye or irritation caused by dust and other airborne pollutants. The drops’ protective barrier gel technology rinses and shields the eyes from allergens and irritants such as pollen, mould, dust mites, pet dander, dust and airborne pollutants. Available in packs of 20 handy-sized single-dose droppers, Eyelergy eye drops are perfect for use on the go whenever required. What’s more, because each single-use dropper is sterile, the drops contain no preservative and so can also be used by contact lens wearers.

Why are our eyes particularly vulnerable to the effects of pollen? Unlike the nose and lungs, the eyes have no filtration devices (e.g. cilia or mucus) for expelling allergens. The main defence mechanism in the eye is the tear film, which provides a barrier function and dilutes and rinses away foreign bodies reaching the eye. Normally this rinsing process goes unnoticed. The problem with pollen and other allergens is that they cause an immune reaction which can disrupt the protective tear film. This then allows foreign bodies to reach the eyelid lining, causing even more irritation, thus leading to a spiralling vicious circle and over-production of tears. Eventually the eyes stream profusely with watery tears that afford little protection.

How does the gel barrier technology protect the eyes/does the gel barrier technology prevent irritants reaching the eye directly? Eyelergy’s gel formulation is activated by our normal blinking mechanism, and creates a protecting, lubricating and hydrating film over the surface of the eye. By blinking, the protective and lubricating effect of Eyelergy is maintained between applications by re-spreading the drops over the eye surface. This barrier works to stabilise the tear film, helping to restore the barrier and rinsing actions necessary to keep irritants and allergens out of harm’s way.

Why do eye drop formulas with preservatives lead to further irritation in contact lens wearers? Preservatives are essential in multidose formulas to prevent microbial contamination and spoilage of the drops once opened. Because Eyelergy is specially presented in sterile, single-dose droppers, this is not an issue and therefore the formula is preservative-free. This is important because preservatives too have the potential to cause eye irritation and sensitisation. Further, when used with contact lenses, these ingredients can accumulate in/under the lens, causing even more problems and sometimes even tissue damage. This explains why eye products containing preservatives are not recommended for long term use, or for use with contact lenses.

Is Eyelergy only suitable for those suffering from hay fever? Eyelergy is suitable for people suffering with hayfever eyes, allergy eyes of any type and with dry eye symptoms. Foreign bodies such as dust, pet dander, mould spores and pollen can all cause allergic irritation in the eye, and Eyelergy can provide effective relief from any of these. Eyelergy also helps to relieve dry eyes. Although the symptoms may not be the same for everyone, typically these include a sensation of having something in the eye and possibly some discomfort, itching, redness or inflammation. Paradoxically, dry eye sometimes involves excessively watery tears.

Who can use Eyelergy? Eyelergy is suitable for use by children from 6 years of age, adults, pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers. Contact lens wearers can also use Eyelergy because it is preservative-free.

How regularly can Eyelergy be used? Eyelergy can be used as frequently as needed, whether for the relief of hayfever/allergy eyes or for dry eyes. Often this is around 3 or 4 times a day. It is advisable to consult a doctor, optician or pharmacist if symptoms continue for a long period of time or worsen
