Could turmeric be the missing ingredient that will bring you back the lost glow of youth?
Wunder Workshop is a small independent company set up in 2015 to promote the healing potential of turmeric and to develop pure organic products that really make a difference. The strapline says it all: Ayurvedic inspired. Sri Lankan grown. London made. The company supports sustainable farming projects in Sri Lanka and aims to make a vital difference to the local communities there.
Check out their adaptogen range, specifically aimed at boosting your resistance to the stresses of everyday living and getting your systems up and running again, working as they were meant to.
What is an adaptogen?
Is it yet another confusing ‘health’ term to addle the brain? No - adaptogens are a natural medicine in a jar. They ‘adapt’ themselves to provide whatever it is that your body needs.
Wunder Workshop's Golden Balance is a combination of Ayurvedic herbs designed to strengthen your body’s response to stress. Turmeric, liquorice and ginger all fight inflammation and free radicals, and help digestion. Cayenne Pepper stimulates your metabolism and circulation and Ashwaganda boosts your adrenals, balances your thyroid and improves overall energy levels.
Golden Glow is my latest New Year’s experiment. I have high hopes of losing the slightly greyish skin tone that seems to come with winter, and replacing it with a sun-kissed glow (how could anyone resist dropping a jar with all those expectations into their shopping basket?!).
I am not sure how long it will be exactly before I start to glow, but a combination of turmeric, maca, rice bran, brahmi (which clears and boosts your brain) and black pepper should work their magic rapidly, I think. Rice bran contains anti-cancer, cholesterol lowering and brain boosting properties, alongside vitamin E, which is a rejuvenator of dry, sad skin. Maca balances your hormones, and many of us over the age of 50 (as well as those of us in their teens and early twenties) need urgent assistance. Best of all, Golden Glow’s combination of antioxidants stimulates skin regeneration, removing toxins along the way.
I am expecting nothing less than radiance. But I will happily settle for glow!
