How to stay healthy in winter

Winter can be a tricky time of the year, with the onset of colds and flu's, the dry cool weather playing havoc with our skin and the lack of light until that little bit later, making it difficult to get motivated to exercise when it's dark and cold. BUT, there are a few things that you can try that might help to make the cooler months a little easier to handle.

Hand Hygiene

Never underestimate the benefits of washing hands. Germs are everywhere and are very easy to pick up and transfer, in fact hand contact is one of the easiest way to spread germs. So washing hands regularly can help keep germs at bay, which means, the possibilities of less colds. I even carry around a small natural hand sanitiser in my handbag, which is really valuable in times that soap and water are not handy.

Healthy Eating

Choosing healthy food options and including the usual suspects in your diet, like fruit, veggies, lean meat, lamb and chicken or if you are a vegetarian plenty of pulses, like chickpea, broad beans, lentils as well as tofu, is the best way to support your immune system. Drinking plenty of water is also helpful and if drinking water gets a little ho hum, add a dash of lemon or lime to give it a little zing.

 

Sleep

I know this is sometimes much easier said than done, but it really does have a significant impact on your general well-being including your heart, weight, memory, disposition and so much more. While sleep requirements vary slightly from person to person, most healthy adults need between 7.5 to 9 hours of sleep per night to function at their best.* The quality of sleep is important too, broken sleep is not ideal, a sound sleep is best. If you find you are struggling with a sound sleep, you might need to look at incorporating Magnesium into your daily routine. Soaking in a bath of Magnesium may help you achieve the sound sleep you are needing. Even rubbing some Magnesium Oil onto your body can be encouragement enough to send you off to a restful and rejuvenating sleep.

SOS your Skin

While not really life threatening, the reality is no-one likes dull, dry and tired looking skin. Keeping your skin hydrated and nourished will keep it looking its best and you feeling great. During the winter months it's all about layering rich serums and moisturisers and making sure you exfoliate and apply masks weekly.

 

Minerals in check

Vitamin C always comes to mind when thinking of winter and boosting immunity. However, have you considered incorporating a daily dose of MSM? MSM can also assist in the maintenance or improvement of general wellbeing.

THE BEAUTY, HEALING AND RESTORATIVE MINERAL

MSM is known to be highly effective in joint health, muscle recovery, sports nutrition, immune support, and healthy ageing. 

What is MSM?

MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane or Dimethyl Sulfone) is an organic sulphur compound found in all living organisms. It is the purest and most bio-available form of sulphur, one of the essential minerals crucial to life and the regeneration of cells. MSM has traditionally been taken as a food supplement to increase joint health for flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome to mild arthritis, osteoporosis, and psoriasis. 

Why do we need to supplement with MSM?

Natural MSM is largely destroyed when our food is processed and can be lost entirely when foods and ingredients are stored for a long period of time. MSM bonds with moisture, so any food which undergoes any sort of dehydration will lack its natural MSM.

For these reasons, and because MSM is so critical for almost every athletic function in active bodies, it is important to consistently supplement with a quality MSM nutritional supplement 

How does MSM work at the cellular level?

Collagen is the principal structural protein holding the skin together and is largely responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties.  Sulphur is integral to the production of collagen and elastin, and MSM is a source of organic Sulphur. 

Approximately half of the body's sulphur content is found in the skin, muscles, cartilage and bones.

How can MSM benefit your skin, hair and nails?

  • Protecting collagen against collagen degrading enzymes
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen and elastin production
  • Boosting the natural production of Glutathione, one of the body's key anti-oxidants ... as an anti-oxidant, MSM will boost the immune system and reduce pigmentation and cellular damage
  • Acting as an anti-inflammatory agent by reducing the production of cytokines (compounds that cause inflammation)
  • Maintaining skin cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products to help keep skin clear
  • Helping to maintaining the body's pH balance

How can MSM help with joint health and support? 

MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as a natural alternative to help reduce pain from mild arthritis and osteoarthritis related symptoms.

How does MISMO MSM help with exercise recovery?

Our muscles, skin, bones, organs, and connective tissue all rely on sulphur and without it our bodies can not function properly.  MSM is an important nutritional supplement for anyone living an active lifestyle, as it delivers the sulphur and methyl nutrients which are key to the structure of healthy cells in muscle and connective tissue.

MSM is valued by bodybuilders, strength, and power athletes because it supports healthy and flexible cell structures and can help reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue and can offset muscle soreness and joint pain caused by inflammation.

Where is MSM found and how is it manufactured?

MSM is found in the fluid and tissue of all living organisms. It is present in a variety of foods including raw vegetables, eggs, milk and fish, but is lost through cooking and food processing. One of the richest natural supplies is pine trees and cabbage.

Although MSM is abundant in nature, even the richest natural sources only provide MSM in the level of several parts per million. Commercial extraction of MSM from trees is not possible so a process is undertaken which parallels the natural oxidation that occurs in the marine atmosphere and produces MSM that is chemically identical to that found in nature.

How pure is MISMO MSM?

Every batch of our MSM is rigourously tested by an independent laboratory to ensure the highest quality, minimum 99.99% pure MSM.

    How much MISMO MSM should I be taking?

    An average dose is between 2 to 6 grams daily. Most people take a teaspoon (approx. 4 grams) daily. If more relief is needed, increase the dose slowly. Can be taken in water or juice after breakfast, although there are no rules as to when you should take MSM.

    A word of caution ... some people find if they take MSM late in the day, after 4 or 5pm, they do not sleep as well, as it energises them. This is not a general occurrence but worth mentioning.

    WARNINGS: If taking Warfarin or strong blood thinners, do not take MSM without your doctor's approval. Not to be taken by children without a health professional's advice.  MSM can also interfere with the accuracy of the blood test for liver enzymes by sometimes producing false positive results. It is recommended you cease taking MSM at least 4 days before these blood tests. You can resume after the test.

      Best stuff ever. MSM makes a big difference to my day. Helps with my inflammation and pain. I'm hoping that the longer I keep taking it the better things will get. Thank you Mismo for MSM. I use to give this to my son when he was younger and he was suffering with Acne the difference that MSM made was huge, complete healing.
