As many will know we are now in Movember, the month where gentlemen of all ages grow moustaches to raise awareness for men's health.
More on this below. Men's health issues are really important if you are a man or if any of the people you care about are men so we have put together a brief refresher on the best men's health products.
And of course you will also find your monthly discount code.
What is Movember, why are we taking part and anyway, why are men's health issues so important?... Indigo Herbs Director Michael Hanby shares his thoughts.
Well it's the end of the summer and the beginning of the harvest season and it's a time when many of us get that back to school feeling (even after all these years!) and an urge to get on with whatever it was we were doing before the summer's warm and delicious distractions.
What happiness is about has rightly become a subject of lots of thought and discussion around the planet, as we approach the end of an era marked by mindless consumerism and a human self centred attitude that is bringing the biosphere to the brink of collapse. We are living in a time where we must address the current crisis with consequent action, where 'walk our talk' has become fundamental. Taking good care of our inner ecosystems (our bodies) is the right start. With our bodies comes a mind that needs taming and cultivation. As human beings the very purpose of our lives is to be happy, yet that seems quite elusive and hard to find, especially a lasting happiness. Hence I have become involved in, as well as learning about ways to look after the temple of my mind, the body, in meditative practices like Mindfulness.
In this newsletter we'll be taking a look at 'looking good and feeling fine' whilst skimping about dressed for the tropics. We'll be saying a little bit about our recent pricing review, revealing details of our Summer Sale and you will also find your regular monthly discount code.
We all know that we need to get our five a day of fruit in us, but even with better ways emerging like blending them into fruit smoothies, we still find that the majority of us don’t get the amount we need. If you’re like me, you might even find your daily fruit intake a little bit boring, perhaps a bit of a challenge… so how easy would it be if you could just mix a bunch of fruit powders and still get all the fruity nutrition you need?
This is why Indigo Herbs are now supplying slow dried fruit powders. A lot of people don’t like shopping daily, and fresh fruit can cost a lot of money – so why not buy them in the form of a dried powder?
Making Everything Better
Much of our focus here at Indigo Herbs is on making things better, whether it be nutrition, approaches to health or simply our own community. Hopefully, this newsletter will inspire you in some of these areas.
Firstly we'll be announcing the winners of the David Ash 'Love Your Liver' prize draw. We'll also be taking a look at the brilliant 'All Trials' campaign which we should all support and checking out our latest new products.
And of course you will find your regular monthly discount code.
Ever heard of Baobab Powder? Neither had we – this somewhat hilariously shaped Baobab tree produces some of Africa’s most nutritious and tasty fruits. A new phenomenon to us Superfood loving westerners; yet these trees are reportedly living up to 500 years old and have been a staple part of many Africans diets for millennia. Like the Ginkgo tree, the Baobab tree is named as one of the oldest trees on earth. The Baobab tree, in its towering glory, produces pods which resemble coconuts with a hard exterior – inside are the pale and chalk-like fruit chunks. The Baobab fruits are dried at a low temperature and then milled into a fine, pale powder, like our Baobab Powder at Indigo Herbs.
