Indigo Herbs News - June-1 2015

In this June newsletter we are taking a look at sports nutrition, reviewing our lovely new products and we are excited to be launching our How To Use Superfoods page.

Ok the weather is a bit unpredictable but June is the month of the longest days leading up to the Summer Solstice & Father's Day on June 21st. 

These lighter evenings mean that people in the Northern hemisphere can fit more activity into one day, and make the most of the daylight! What joy! Time to fly before we return again to the bear cave.

For some this can be about pursuing a hobby such as cycling, tennis, running, or traditional summer sports like athletics and cricket.

Since June is the month of Wimbledon we decided to share with you our Sports Performance page in our Natural Health Guide. Here we have profiled all the herbs and superfoods that can boost sports performance the natural way. Discover how the blood stimulating Gingko Biloba or nutrient boosting Beetroot can keep you in optimum health and on top of your game! Find out how to use these herbs and superfoods and many more as part of your get fit/ get fitter incentive.
