Let’s give thanks
Appreciating what we have, rather than despairing over what we don’t, is one of the keys to a happy and healthy life. We take a look at a few things for which to be grateful.
HEALTH IN A TEA CUP
Here’s to a pick-me-up that’s truly good for you. Sitting down for a cup of tea can be a tiny oasis of calm in the middle of a stressful day. And when you fill your mug with Red Seal Green Tea or Red Bush Tea you get an extra shot of antioxidants – just three cups a day are enough to yield a therapeutic dose. Antioxidants fight free radicals, which can damage the body and lead to illness, hence a diet full of antioxidants is one of the best ways to improve your health. Bonus: if you drink both teas (Green and Red Bush), that’s even better as you are getting a mix of different antioxidants. Let’s be grateful for such an easy and delicious health boost.
We’re fortunate to live in a country where good food is plentiful – but sometimes we’re guilty of overdoing it. For those times when your digestion needs some TLC, we’re lucky there’s Red Seal Activated Charcoal to the rescue. It’s made from medicinal-grade carbonised coconut shell which acts as a sponge to absorb substances (such as toxins and bacteria) in the large and small intestines before passing harmlessly through the body. This simple treatment can be your go-to first-aid treatment for upset stomachs and it’s also a lifesaver for irregular bowels and even food poisoning.
THE POWER TO CHANGE
While big health issues may have the power to overwhelm us, the good news is that we have the ability to fight back. Winter is not far away and with the change of seasons often comes unwellness. But it’s possible to strengthen your own immunity. As well as eating an optimal diet and staying in shape, there are some simple products that can help your body resist illness. Olive Leaf, Vitamin C and Zinc, B6 & Magnesium are Red Seal’s special trio of resistance builders. It’s so easy to start the family on these at the first sign of a sniffle – or, better yet, before it even happens!
A NAME YOU CAN TRUST
At Red Seal we’re thankful for our history and legacy. The company was founded in 1923 by English naturopath William Anderton, who operated from a small shop in Symonds Street, Auckland. Today we are still family owned and operated. We love being a New Zealand company and making products such as toothpaste, which was formulated right here by one
WRITE DOWN YOUR THANKS
One simple way to be happier is to start a gratitude journal. Every day take a note of the big and small things you appreciated. Soon it will become second nature to look on the bright side and get a well-being boost.
