Planning to Get Pregnant?

Having adequate nutrition and maintaining a healthy body weight can increase our chances of conception, successful pregnancy, and birth to a healthy baby.  During pregnancy, our body requires different amount of nutrients that are crucial for the development of the foetus, such as Folate/Folic Acid

  • Folate/ Folic Acid is the most important nutrient to prevent the foetus from developing neutral tube defects. It is recommended to start supplementation at least 1 month prior to pregnancy to prevent birth defects, and yet 44% of pregnant women in a Beijing University Study were found to be deficient in blood folate. 

Remember deficiency might not be obvious in pregnant women, and folic acid is only of of many nutrients we need, hence it is essential for both the mother and the foetus to consume enough.

Are You Pregnant?

Adequate nutrition during pregnancy is essential for your baby’s growth and development. Several nutrients are especially important, yet not many pregnant women are reaching adequate intakes of all the required nutrients. Let’s take a look at some of the key ones.

  • Folate/Folic acid – Essential for the prevention of premature birth and neural tube defects.
  • Iron – For the production of hemoglobin (the protein in the red blood cells) to help carry oxygen around the body for you and your baby. Deficiency may result in anemia and increased risks of premature birth. 90% of the adult population in Hong Kong are not getting enough iron compared to the recommended intake (Center for Food Safety Hong Kong 2014)
  • Calcium – Essential for strong bones and teeth development. It also plays an important role in our nervous system, muscular system, and circulatory system. 80% of the adult population are not getting enough calcium (Center for Food Safety Hong Kong 2014).
  • Iodine – essential for healthy brain development in the fetus and young child. Over 70% of pregnant women in Hong Kong are deficient in iodine. (Medical Journal Hong Kong 2017)

Careful control of weight and diet are also important in the prevention of diseases such as high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, and can help decrease the risk of chronic disease development in your child’s adulthood.

Breastfeeding?

Are You Breastfeeding?

What is more important than providing the most nutritious first food to our baby?

Breast Milk is the most recommended way of feeding as it contains all the nutrients that supports growth and development for the initial 6 months of the baby. We, as mothers, want to ensure nutrients are adequate for the baby and also for the replenishment for ourselves.

For the baby: Nutrients such as DHA and Essential Fatty Acids are crucial for babies’ brain development as well as the growth and natural immune protective matters.

For the mothers:  It is important to replenish nutrients that are in increased demands such as Calcium, Iron, Iodine, etc. Several vitamins and minerals are also in higher demand during lactation as compared to pregnancy, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Iodine, Zinc, Riboflavin (B2), Vitamin B12, Vitamin B5, and Vitamin A. However, it was found in 2016 that more than 85% of pregnant participants were not fulfilling the recommended intake. (Laboratory for Infant & Child of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU)’s Food Safety and Technology Research Centre (FSTRC))

 

  • Lack of calcium may lead to osteoporosis, rickets or cardiovascular diseases

  • Lack of iron includes iron deficiency anemia and impaired immune response

  • Lack of iodine may lead to hypothyroidism, goiter etc.

  • Inadequate intake and low nutrient density of the diet can inhibit breast milk production.

Concerned About Your Child’s Weight?

Are You Concerned About Your Child’s Weight?

Childhood obesity is particularly troubling because the extra pounds can often lead children to the path of health problems that were once considered adult problems — diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. 

Many obese children become obese adults, especially if one or both parents are obese. Childhood obesity can also lead to poor self-esteem and depression. One of the best strategies to reduce childhood obesity is to improve the eating and exercise habits of your entire family. Treating and preventing childhood obesity can help protect your child’s health now and in the future.

Skin Whitening

Skin Whitening

  • Light and white skin are still considered the ambassador of beauty in many Asian countries. In East Asian culture, women prefer lighter skin tone because they believe ‘yī bái zhē bǎi chǒu一白遮百醜,’ which means ‘a white complexion is powerful enough to hide seven faults,’ darker skin signified more than just a mark against beauty. 

    Our Skin whitening supplement pack consists of nutrients that can :

    • Have ability to suppress and/or reverse oxidative damage  caused by such stressors as UV light from the sun.
    • Offer protection against sun damage and photocarcinogenesis

Body Odor

Body Odor

  • Fed up with the smell that lingers around you? 

    Well, it’s very normal, and has been shown in research that after the age of 40, the amount of ω7 unsaturated fatty acids and lipid peroxides increases significantly on our skin surface, upon degradation and oxidation, a chemical ‘2-Nonenal’ is produced, which is the unpleasant greasy and grassy smell, aka “old age” odor. The odor itself cannot be covered no matter how many times you’ve showered, spray on perfume or deodorant. But hey, guess what? There are some nutrients that can help to control the degradation. 

    Let’s start smelling fresh today !

Body & Liver Detoxing

Our body can accumulate a lot of “toxins” overtime from eating or exposure to toxic chemicals in our environment such as heavy metal in drinking water and food, and pesticides that were applied to crops.

Naturally, our body is able to remove toxins through our sweat, urine, and feces with the work of the liver, GI tract, and kidneys. However, with the support of detox supplements, your body can work even more efficiently than before. 

Body Detox

Our body detox blends works wonderfully by optimizing your bowel movement to remove wastes much easily, support liver function and also replenishes nutrients that fuels our healthy gut bacteria to grow helping to enhance our immune system at the same time. 

Liver Detox

Liver is one of the largest organs in our body and acts as our body’s natural filter that’s responsible to convert toxins into wastes products, cleanses our blood, and metabolizes nutrients and medications. 

Our Liver Detox helps to protect and ensure the liver works its best by prevent toxins from entering the body, and stimulating the growth and repair of liver cells.

Suitable for those with late nights and nights with alcohol !

Bone and Joint Health

Bone and Joint Health

Suffering from knee pain or discomfort? 

As we age (or the increased use of high heels) can cause degeneration of joint tissues and oxidative damage which contributes to musculoskeletal impairment such as osteoarthritis, causing pain, limited motion, and joint damage. 

There are nutrients in particular that can significantly relief pain by building up the cartilages between the joints and some even have shown positive effect on bone metabolism by reducing bone reabsorption rate while maintaining the constant rate of bone formation
