The Global Wellness Institute defines wellness as “the active pursuit of activities, choices and lifestyles that lead to a state of holistic health”.
This holistic approach to our health has impacted how we approach beauty. It has revealed that inner and outer health are directly impacted by each other. In order to look our best, we have to consider what we put into our bodies.
Wellness Is Multidimensional
Wellness is about more than just physical health. Most models of wellness include at least 6 dimensions:
- Physical: A healthy body through exercise, nutrition, sleep, etc.
- Mental: Engagement with the world through learning, problem-solving, creativity, etc.
- Emotional: Being in touch with, aware of, accepting of, and able to express one’s feelings (and those of others).
- Spiritual: Our search for meaning and purpose in human existence.
- Social: Connecting with, interacting with, and contributing to other people and our communities.
- Environmental: A healthy physical environment free of hazards; awareness of the role we play in bettering rather than denigrating the natural environment.
Five supplements for inner and outer wellness
Omega-3 fatty acids cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained through diet.
Inner wellness: Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to positively affect risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease; promote overall brain health; improve memory and concentration; balance your mood and promote eye health.
Outer wellness: Omega-3s can help keep your skin healthy, prevent premature aging and safeguard against sun damage.
Suplibox's advanced liquid formula Omega-3 is designed for rapid absorption. Our capsules contain EPA and DHA, natural sources of omega-3 found in fish oil. Our formulation is produced from a cold press extraction method like the process used to produce olive oil. The use of high heat is avoided, which means that all essential fatty acids are preserved, along with the other nutrients natural to fish oil. Check it out here!
Curcumin is the main active component in turmeric and, together with its cousin ginger, are roots that have a long history of use in Ayurvedic (Indian) and Chinese medicines, dating back thousands of years. Both are strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents heralded for a range of health benefits.
Inner wellness: Curcumin acts to interfere and block inflammatory response pathways in the body, offering a protective effect and reducing painful inflammation; can improve brain function; may help reverse many steps in the heart disease process; and can contribute to healthy digestion.
Outer wellness: Many studies suggest that turmeric can improve overall skin health, and reduce the risk and severity of certain skin diseases.
Suplibox's Curcuma Complex is an optimised formula containing a trio of patented, powerful anti-inflammatory compounds (turmeric, ginger and boswellia) which studies suggest will contribute to and improve both your inner and outer wellness. Check it out here.
B-Complex are a group of 8 water soluble vitamins: B-1 (thiamine), B-2 (riboflavin), B-3 (niacin), B-5 (pantothenic acid), B-6 (pyridoxine), B-7 (biotin), B-9 (folic acid), B-12 (cobalamin).
Inner wellness: B-Complex has a range of inner wellness benefits such as helping us better manage stress levels, anxiety and improve mood; helps convert nutrients into energy and contributes to normal psychological function.
Outer wellness: B-complex essentially slows down ageing, protects the skin against free radicals, reduces acne and prevents breakouts & dry skin. They collectively work to promote healthy cell turnover and revitalise the skin.
Inner wellness: Magnesium has been shown to lead to an improvement in sleep quality, plays an important role in your nervous system, and plays a critical role in brain function and mood.
Outer wellness: Magnesium helps improve your skin's overall appearance, reducing acne and other skin disorders by lowering cortisol levels and stabilizing hormonal imbalances.
Suplibox's Magnesium Complex uses magnesium in glycinate form (a type of amino acid) as it is gentle on the stomach and the body finds it easier to consume the mineral in this form. We also add vitamin B6 and D3, co-factors that improves absorption.
Vitamin D is actually a hormone, which our bodies manufacture when sunlight hits our skin. This explains why vitamin D is known as the “sunshine vitamin”.
Inner wellness: Builds and enhances immunity; elevates your mood; maintains bone health and muscle function.
Outer wellness: Strong anti-inflammatory properties, which are effective in treating burns, skin injuries, skin damage and stretch marks. The antioxidant present in Vitamin D also prevents skin damage and premature ageing of skin when taken via supplements.
Suplibox's Vitamin D uses D3 because it's the same biologically active form of vitamin D that your body produces as it supports the function of more than 3,000 cells in your body. Our formulation is also in liquid form for higher bioavailability, which means more vitamin D can be used effectively by your body.
