Can Supplements and Multi-Vitamins Improve Heart Health?

Can Supplements and Multi-Vitamins Improve Heart Health

It’s a widely known fact that supplements and multi-vitamins are great for the body and immunity. Today, dietary supplements have become more than a hundred billion dollar industry. But, do you actually know if these supplements and multi-vitamins are doing anything to improve your heart health?

Let’s find out!

A recent research on multi-vitamins and an extensive range of supplements shed light on the fact that most of these supplements had a limited effect on heart health, and did not help in increasing a person’s life span.

The medical experts who carried forward the research recommended consuming a healthy and nutritious diet to support heart health, instead of taking supplements and multi-vitamins that do not have a measurable effect on your heart or life quality.

For example, people who are at the risk of high blood pressure should go for a diet that is low in salt, as this is something that will actually decrease their chances of developing a heart related disease.

Dr Ross Walker

However, contrary to what you’ve just read Dr Ross Walker suggests the long term consumption of the correct supplements does provide benefits for your long term health. 

What attracts me to InnerOrigin is the very simple fact that the philosophy is about good health. InnerOrigin is a health and wellness company that’s set to revolutionise our community. It’s not just about selling products – it’s about giving people the global lifestyle approach. They’re going to keep people healthier and happier for so much longer. This is why I chose to become an InnerOrigin Ambassador. The only thing we want for InnerOrigin are products that are backed by science, backed by clinical experience – that we know is going to help people.

How to Choose the Right Coconut Oil

How to Choose the Right Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is one of the most multipurpose and popularly used natural oils all over the world. From promoting hair growth, fighting skin scars to cooking; coconut oil can be used for all possible reasons. If you are planning to use coconut oil for beauty purposes or any other reasons, then it’s equally essential for you to make the right buying choice as well. Here are some factors that you must keep in mind in order to find the best coconut oil for your specific use –

  • Food-Grade Vs Non-Food-Grade Coconut Oil –

If you intend to use coconut oil for cooking or dressing purposes, then you must make a point to buy high quality food-grade coconut oil. On the other hand, non-food-grade coconut should only be bought for external use, like cleaning etc.

  • Refined Vs Virgin Coconut Oil –

If you plan to use coconut oil for cooking that is likely to involve high intensity of heat, then you must opt for the refined version of coconut oil. Make sure that the refined coconut oil you have chosen to buy is refined following an organic and chemical free process. Otherwise, you’ll end up buying a coconut oil that not only lacks in nutrients, but also in the authentic coconut taste. Virgin and unrefined coconut oil on the other hand is more suited for baking, dressings and low intensity heat cooking etc.

  • Solid Vs Liquid Coconut Oil –

It’s always recommended that you buy solid coconut oil, instead of going for its liquid form. Coconut oil in its solid form not only has a longer shelf life, but is also purer than its liquid version. This way, you can still use the liquid form of oil, just by warming the solid form for a few seconds.

Is Magnesium the Key to Better Sleep?

Is Magnesium the Key to Better Sleep?

Recent studies have brought magnesium back into the spotlight as an antidote to sleepless nights. Magnesium is one mineral that is already known for its manifold benefits for the human body. But with the recent findings on the mineral, it has again become the centre of attraction for all health enthusiasts.

Magnesium has a significant influence on your body’s metabolism. This mineral not only impacts the brain’s functioning ability, but also helps in the production of melatonin, inducing better sleep at night. Magnesium is also proven to relax the tightening of muscles, and offers relief to people suffering from all kinds of muscular cramps.

Currently, there are a number of brands that are introducing new magnesium-based products that are combined with the goodness of other super-foods known for their healing properties. The purpose of these magnesium-based products is to revitalize and heighten relaxation in people who are struggling to get a good night’s sleep for different reasons. There is no doubt that the body needs adequate rest to recover and heal from an injury or any other strenuous activity. This is where magnesium helps to offer relief by inducing better sleep patterns and rest for the body.

When combined with CBD, I-theanine or potassium; magnesium products are likely to be twice effective in helping the body relax, rejuvenate or recover from a past injury. So, if you are looking for a way to fight stress, relax your nervous system and make your body feel more restful, then magnesium based products and supplements can actually help you achieve all that. There are a number of ways in which you can ensure the right intake of magnesium for a soothing and peaceful bedtime. So, start exploring and figure out a method that works best to relax your body and mind without any side effects.

Why I’m affiliated with Inner Origin part2

Following on from my last blog I’d like to expand on why I choose to follow and be involved in the business of Inner Origin.

Inner Origin Values and Philosophies

Inner Origin source the most beneficial products for your well being and healthy foods and ingredients. These are sourced from local suppliers, or merchants as they are known in the world of business. 

With environmentally friendly packaging the company is looking after this wonderful planet we call Earth.  All products and ingredients are presented to the Product Advisory Board. (They are shown below)

All ingredients and products must be sourced from farms which are ethically managed, including using environmentally sustainable farming practises.  When reading online or on the packaging you’ll notice that all of the ingredients are recognisable and shown what country the ingredients originate.

Even if you are looking for organic and natural foods you’ll find it on the platform.  Even the CBD oil is organic.  Same as the organic wine.

You can be sure you’re helping the planet with every order you place with InnerOrigin.

Inner Origin business model

I enjoy the support I receive from the company and other Advocates of the business.  We have flexibility in how we grow our individual advocate businesses.  However, usual business rules do apply.  If you choose to be interested in where you can take this business yourself I’d really like to talk with you. If this business suits you you can grow it either in your own township or City, or even over the internet via social media. 

One of the benefits of being involved with Inner Origin as an Advocate is that the shopping platform is online and you don’t handle the cash or product.  The company take care of all of it.  Even delivery of the purchases, they’re forwarded to the customer anywhere the person wishes for them to be delivered.  All at the one delivery price across Australia and New Zealand, $12.95.  Shipping to the USA is subject to standard shipping prices at present till Inner Origin is fully launched there.

Why I’m affiliated with Inner Origin

Back in March of 1993 my ophthalmologist told me I was losing my sight due to a genetic and hereditary condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa.  In short, my retinas were dying.  At the time I had a drivers license and forklift ticket.  I had worked in a wreckers, service station, motorcycle centre and warehousing. 

Within two to three years of my diagnosis life began to change.  The colours on the television were changing to pastels.  Driving became more difficult.  Reading the newspaper was a chore.  Even walking about was an interesting experience.  I had difficulty gaining a full time job due to the fact I couldn’t read efficiently and make use of the forklift ticket I had.

So, some years later I moved to Brisbane and was introduced to computers. I knew I would have to engage online sometime and this helped a great deal as.  I learned to use the computer  with little to no sight.  Now, I have plenty of technology around me and a program on my computer called JAWS (Job Access With Speech) which converts the text to speech for me and allows me to conduct business and work at home.

I applied for many jobs in the early 2000’s.  However, due to my sight impairment  and limited understanding of navigating the computer I was declined.   I was introduced to a home based business in 2003 and joined a business club here in Brisbane all those years ago At a round table event I was directed to create my own telemarketing service.  This I did and am still doing it right now!  This wasn’t my plan when I was younger as I wanted to get a number of machinery tickets and use them to travel and work.

So although it is easy to plan, you can’t predict!

Today, my sight is limited to the point where I need to use a white cane to walk about independently.  I require assistance to purchase my groceries when I go shopping.  I can’t drive, or ride a bicycle.

To keep myself fit I do Karate, and have done for the last ten and half years since returning from climbing Mount Kilimanjaro back in March of 2009.  My girlfriend and I walk up and down Mt Coot-Tha a few times a month when time permits.  I still telemarket for a commercial cleaning company, and with the assistance of a Virtual Assistant I manage the website Groceries for Health, which is affiliated with Inner Origin.

You may ask what attracted me to Inner Origin?

I’ve been involved in several home based businesses over the past 17 years.  Early in my business career it was mainly skin care and supplements.  I eventually realised they weren’t the right fit for me. 

Inner Origin initially attracted my attention as they support Australian and New Zealand businesses to market their products to the general public.  Now, we’re expanding to the United States to introduce them to the same philosophy.    

The Product Advisory Board (PAB) is an important part of the IO business model.  Their role is to critically look at all the ingredients and  where they’re sourced.  They ensure ethical farming practices are adhered to.  Approved products have no GMO or petrochemicals in them.  You are able to read where the ingredients come from and also understand what the ingredients are.  You won’t find any confusing numbers included on the ingredient list.  

Inner Origin also offers a price match guarantee so the price on the Inner Origin platform is equivalent to the price on the merchants website.  Please keep in mind that retail stores have their own pricing systems and the prices may vary either way!

The postal delivery cost hasn’t changed in this time and is still $12.95 no matter the size of the order right across Australia and New Zealand.

A little Inner Origin history

Inner Origin launched in Australia in November 2016.  I joined in February 2017 and have enjoyed the experience.  In 2018 Inner Origin expanded to New Zealand and at present IO is pre-launching into the United States which is very exciting. 

We now offer international shipping.  So, if you have family or friends in the USA you can send them a gift from the IO platform.  Alternatively, if you’re in the States and reading this you can go onto, click on the ‘Shop USA’ link and have your purchase delivered to you or the person you’re buying for! Easy.

Inner Origin have weekly webinars and we welcome anyone to listen in and hear from merchant suppliers interviewed by Sally-Ann Ferguson, the CEO.  Other webinars outline the business of Inner Origin and how you can be involved and promote the Inner Origin health giving philosophy.

Whether you’re in Australia, New Zealand or the United States you’ll be supporting local businesses

Please look out for events and webinars being posted on the Facebook pages, @groceriesforhealth for Australia, @groceriesforhealthnz for New Zealand and @groceriesforhealthus for the United States.

I am open to receive any questions you may have regarding my current lifestyle with my eye condition or what Inner Origin can do for you.  Please contact me by phone 0409 582 433 or via the website form below
