1. Enjoy seasonal fruits and vegetables 

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy seasonal fruits and vegetables. They are both healthy and delicious! Here are some examples: 

  • Strawberries are packed with vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants, and more. 
  • Watermelon is a great source of vitamin A and C. As the fruit contains plenty of water it is ideal for hydrating on a hot summer day. 
  • Peaches are rich in many vitamins, minerals, and beneficial plant compounds. 

Eat the fruits as they are or prepare colourful fruit salads, smoothies or healthy home-made “nice cream”. Nice Cream is healthy, vegan ice cream made with frozen bananas only.

Tip: Nice cream requires only 2 ingredients: Frozen bananas and the fruit/berries of your choice. Just mix the ingredients in a blender and enjoy! 

2. Take care of your skin

Exposure to sunlight is the single biggest culprit in aging skin. Besides that too much-unprotected exposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause skin damage and even skin cancer. 

Remember these tips to keep your skin healthy and glowing: 

  • Use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher 
  • Keep your skin hydrated 
  • Limit the amount of time you’re in the sun between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM
  • Try out Beta Carotene 
  • Cover sensitive parts of your skin and accessorize with a hat that shades your face, neck, and ears and a pair of sunglasses. 

Now you might wonder: Why Beta Carotene? 

Our supplement allows you to be sun safe without compromising on a bronzed complexion! Utilizing the yellow and orange pigments of this natural carotenoid, our Beta Carotene formula can enhance your skin’s radiance and help you achieve a bronzed complexion without the risks that are involved in excess tanning.

3. Keep up the exercise regime

Just because the temperatures are rising doesn't mean that you have to give up your training program completely. Take a bike ride, discover new outdoor sports or try Zumba in the park - there are countless ways to have fun and get fit at the same time. 

4. Keep yourself hydrated 

Headaches, lethargy, and irritability are typical signs of dehydration. 

Water is even more essential when you are physically active as dehydration can lead to muscle cramps and fatigue

Dehydration and heat stroke are two very common heat-related diseases that can be easily prevented with the right measures. 

Remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day,  Other good substitutes are coconut water, lemon water, fresh buttermilk, clear soup or fruit juices (without sugar) once in a while to keep up your electrolyte levels. 

5. Go swimming 

Swimming is probably one of the most refreshing ways to spend hot summer days. No matter if you are on holiday or at home - usually there are plenty of places for swimming. 

Swimming is an excellent way to strengthen muscles, build up stamina, and burn calories. Swimming promotes blood circulation in the legs, strengthens the immune system, and is easy on the joints.

Like other outdoor sports, swimming is considered safe in Corona times, as long as distance rules are observed. That said nothing stands in the way of jumping into the cool water! 

Remember: After swimming in swimming pools or the sea, the body should always be rinsed with water to remove chlorine or salt. After the shower, the skin should be treated with a body lotion or other moisturizing skincare product.

How do we produce our Omega 3 Fish oil?
How do we produce our Omega 3 Fish oil?

Did your parents or grandparents also take cod liver oil? They sure did! Fishy, oily, greasy - simply disgusting! Whole generations grew up with this penetrating taste of cod liver oil until it finally disappeared from the shelves. Cod liver oil is a great source of omega 3 but nowadays, taking supplements with omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA is clearly the more pleasant way to go.

Omega-3 fatty acids are found mainly in marine fish and algae and are a vital part of the human diet.  They regulate important bodily functions such as blood pressure, heart rate or the immune system and are found as a component of nerve cells, especially in the brain and retina. The two most important omega-3 fatty acids are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), both obtained mainly from fish oils and marine algae. To be able to integrate these fatty acids into supplements, they must first be extracted using complex processes.
