  • FLVC WELLNESS:

    I first found about Fulvic acid/ Humid acid by my dear friend and local body healer, at my appointment I booked with her regarding my severe neck pain. I Was in so much pain, I could barely move my neck at all. I suffer with neck issues due to stress I carry, and from a past job I had as a lash tech.

    Nearing the end of my appointment my friend had recommended a product she was selling from a different company then the one I am about tell you about. She thought my body could use it and that I would see very good results from it with inflammation, gut and skin health. she had me intrigued and I left with a month sample she said I had to try. I fell in love instantly. So what was it you ask?

    Fulvic acid!!

    What exactly is fulvic acid and what does it do for us?

    Well the answer is allot! Since taking it, I started to feel more energy and less lows in my day. I Also noticed my bowel movements became more regular ( which for me has been a constant issue for 8 years), My skin……oh let me tell you about my skin! I thought my skin was looking so great before with all my added supplements I take, but after only 3 days of the fulvic acid in water routine , my skin got even better. Radiant and a pinkish glow. I don’t really have much inflammation, but if I do- it would normally start in my joints, or upper shoulders from stress. Well thats gone. I haven’t really had issues since. Is it related? I feel in my heart it is!

    So naturally I had to dig deeper and find out what it can do and how can I get my hands on more. Turns out the company she was getting it from no longer has it available. long story short.. I went on to find my own supplier for my store so I could continue to take it and provide my customers with yet again another healing product. How exciting!!

    Fulvic acid not only helps for what was stated above, but a whole bundle of things. Here’s a list of what it can do:

    1. energy
    2. gut health
    3. fight inflamation
    4. strengthens the immune system
    5. reduces pain
    6. lessens free radical damage
    7. may stop ulcerous / colon infections
    8. helps you eliminate toxins
    9. helps you eliminate heavy metals
    10. aids in digestion
    11. creates skin health
    12. parasite killer
    13. fight cancer
    14. provides the body with adequate nutrition and minerals
    15. helps the body absorb nutrients

    The list is incredible isn’t it!

    So where does it come from?

    Fulvic/Humic acid is a deep earth substance that is extracted in special regions of the world containing rich organic minerals at about 200-250 feet underground. Both humic and fulvic acid are formed during the seaweed humification process (certain combinations of temperature as well as the right combination of organic substances, which overtime, compresses this organic matter into a new unique substance called …. you guessed it, Humic/ fulvic acid.

    Just like with any source of food or substance, there are higher and lesser quality sources. From what I’ve learned is that the highest quality sources come from Russia, Canada, China, Mexico, and the United States!

    So this leaves me here. I discovered a company right in my country of Canada , FLVC wellness is a women led local business operating and residing on the Sylix Territory of the okanogan (Kelowna, BC). Proudly sourced from Western Canadian soils!!

    They Believe that a healthy gut is a healthy mind. Health body and soul means not only do we feel our best, but we contribute better within our communities . They have a mini collection of organic fulvic and humid acids, Canadian sourced and created by nature to support microbiome health, energy, mood and healthy glowing skin. It comes it the powder form or you can get it in the liquid tonic form. Both these lovely products can be found on our website at http://www.lifetylefarmacy.ca

  • Adaptogens… What are they?

    Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that are marketed for helping the body resist stressors of all kinds, whether physical, chemical or biological. These herbs and roots or mushrooms, have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions. They are making a come back and scientists are seeing more and more health benefits associated with foods containing these plants.

    Here is a few and what they can help with:

    Adaptogens for long-term stress:  ashwagandha and Asian ginseng to soothe long-term sources of stress and the hormone imbalances that may result from it. (Ashwagandha can be found in a few of our Blume latte mixes and our Aura Inner Balance Powder Supplement.)

    Adaptogens for immune healthReishi and ginseng have been found in some small studies to boost immunity. (You can find Reishi in the Blume Milk Blend!)

    Adaptogens for acute stress and anxiety: Rhodiola is believed to improve energy, physical performance and memory, it is found in our (Aura Inner Beauty Products we sell as well- specifically the “Inner focus, dietary powder.)

    What are adaptogens mushrooms?

    Cordyceps- is a type of fungus that people have studied for its potential to reduce the effects of stress on the body. 

    Lions Mane Mushroom

    Lions Mane- Ericium erinaceus, commonly known as lion’s mane, is another mushroom thought to offer adaptogenic effects. 

    Rodent studies have shown that lion’s mane extract may help reverse stress-related changes to neurotransmitters, including dopamine and serotonin.

    Reishi- as stated above, helps support the function of the adrenal glands. These secrete cortisol, which is a hormone that helps the body respond to stress.

    Reishi Mushroom

    These are just a few common ones that you will find in some of LIFE-STYLE FARMACY’S products we sell. There’s many, more that I encourage you to read up on.

    Should you incorporate adaptogens into your everyday diet?

    YES! If you are lacking something that these offer or maybe you want to maintain your health, then YES! What do you have to lose?

    The Blume “better Milk”, Adaptogenic Milk Blend has the most bang for your buck. You can find 4 Adaptogens in it. Reishi, Lions mane, Cordyceps, and Chaga!

  • Welcome SunnaTan:

    I’m really excited to be able to now have the full Sunna line. Now carrying SunnaTan Sunless Tanning Products. The Sunna creators have truly done something magical. Once again they have managed to create some high quality products that are full of vitamins and minerals and are healthy options for your skin , instead of the usual chemical base ones, AND THEY WORK!

    WHAT IS THE ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN SUNNATAN ?

    The active ingredient in sunless tanners is DHA (dihydroxy acetone). DHA is approved by the food and drug administration for use in sunless tanning products. DHA is naturally derived from sugar. It synthesizes with the skin’s proteins and amino acids in the outermost layer (epidermis) of the skin, working with your own natural pigments to produce a safe, natural looking tan.
    DHA reacts with the dead skin cells, therefore, as those skin cells slough off, so does your tan. Each person has a unique skin cell cycle, affected by numerous factors including, but not limited to, hormones, genetics, age, medications, the environment and products used topically on the skin.
    DHA was discovered 70 years ago. Since this time, there have been numerous studies to show that DHA applied topically to the skin has no reactions or adverse affects.
    The amount of DHA in the solution will determine the level of darkness of your tan. Some skin tones will require more DHA and others will require less to achieve the same effect.

    SO WHAT MAKES SUNNATAN DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS?

    SunnaTan’s unique solution and application process is what makes them different.  There are many “organic” solutions on the market, but only one SunnaTan.  Many spray tan solutions will claim to be natural and organic, but this is not the case. They encourage their clients/ customers to always ask to see the ingredient list. When choosing a sunless tanning product it’s important to look at all the ingredients in the solution. This is where SunnaTan shines.

    SunnaTan is:
    ·      Paraben Free
    ·      Sulphate Free
    ·      Alcohol Free
    ·      Gluten Free
    ·      Fragrance Free
    ·      Synthetic Free
    ·      Chemical colourant free
    ·      Non-GMO
    ·      We do NOT test on Animals
    ·      Natural Preservatives
    Every ingredient in the SunnaTan solution serves a specific purpose and provides benefits for the skin.

  • Lets talk Nootropics:

    What are they ?

    Nootropics are natural or synthetic substances that can be taken to improve mental performance in healthy people. 

    They have gained popularity in today’s society and are most often used to boost memory, focus, creativity, intelligence and motivation.

    Some common Nootropics used in todays society are:

    Caffeine

    L-Theanine

    Creatine

    Bacopa Mannieri

    Rhodiola Rosea

    Panax Ginseng

    Ginkgo Biloba

    Nicotine

    I wanted to touch base on one in particular (Bacopa Mannieri), because you can find it in our lovely Aura Inner Beauty Powder supplement (Inner Focus Restorative Powder).The Inner Focus- is a Nootropic Brain-boosting and digestive blend to support mental focus and stamina, as well as enhance memory , and relieves restlessness for a calm , collected mind!

    It is a tasty blend, enjoyed by many, with its organic natural papaya flavours.

    Ok! so what is Bacopa Mannieri?

    Bacopa Monnieri is an ancient herb used in Ayurvedic medicine to enhance brain function.

    Several studies have found that Bacopa Monnieri supplements can speed up information processing in your brain, reduce reaction times and improve memory.

    Bacopa Monnieri contains active compounds called Bacosides, which protect your brain from oxidative stress and improve signalling in your hippocampus, an area of your brain in which memories are processed.

    The effects of Bacopa monnieri are not felt immediately. Therefore, doses of 300‒600 mg should be taken for several months for maximum benefit. The Inner focus contains 300mg per recommend teaspoon.

    Aura Inner focus is the perfect way to start your day. Especially for those busy mornings when you need a little Pep in your step! I Like to have it on ice in a pretty stemless wine glass , because lets face it- its so much Prettier that way!

    Inner focus – has a nice gentle Papaya Flavour!
