SANDERSON Real Sleep – Adult

Why is sleep important? Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. The way you feel while you’re awake depends in part on what happens while you’re sleeping. During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development. The damage from sleep deficiency can occur in an instant (such as a car crash), or it can harm you over time. For example, ongoing sleep deficiency can raise your risk for some chronic health problems. It also can affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others. Persistent sleeplessness may be a symptom of a more serious underlying health problem and should be discussed with your healthcare provider. Lifestyle changes, like de-stressing your life, play an important role in getting quality sleep. See our top tips for better sleep. 15 Top Tips for Better Sleep Ban blue light from the bedroom (eg. TVs, computers, cell phones); the short waves of blue light may interfere with sleep. Avoid naps, particularly within 8 hours of bedtime, as napping can sabotage a good night’s sleep. Block the clock – glancing at the clock in the night may set your mind working about how few hours of sleep remain. Try a pillow between your knees for back pain – mid or lower back pain may not wake you, but it can disturb the deep, restful stages of sleep. Put your neck in neutral – bad pillows can lead to stiff necks and poor sleep; choose a pillow that aligns your nose with the centre of your body. Set your body clock – establish a regular routine of going to sleep and waking including weekends. Cut the caffeine – avoid the stimulant effects of caffeine in drinks and food after the middle of the day. Exercise regularly – but not too close to bedtime, as a post-workout burst of energy can keep you awake. Eat right at night – avoid heavy foods and big meals late in the day as they tax the digestive system and make quality sleep hard to get. Avoid alcohol at bedtime. It might make you sleepy to begin with, but it actually causes more frequent awakenings and less restful sleep. Avoid drinking within 2 hours of bedtime to prevent nighttime toilet trips. Neutralise noise – dripping taps, barking dogs etc. can disturb your sleep. “White noise” like an air conditioner or fan can help block the bumps in the night. Or try ear plugs. Quit smoking – nicotine is a stimulant, just like caffeine. Keep pets out of bed – their movements can disturb and they bring allergens into the bed. Establish a ‘winding down’ routine in the evenings, like reading something calm, meditation, or taking a warm bath. Even a 10 minute pre-sleep ritual may be beneficial.

SANDERSON 1-a-day VISION FX

SANDERSON 1-a-day VISION FX

Vision for Life The eye is our most important sensory organ and good vision is a prerequisite for an active life. Up to 80% of all impressions are perceived by sight. However, we often don’t think about our senses until an organ stops working. Anyone with poor vision is restricted in many ways – there is no doubt that better vision means better life; so you have plenty of reasons to take care of your eyes, particularly as you age – in New Zealand age-related macular degeneration affects 1 in 7 people over 50 years and it is the most common cause of blindness. 7 tips to help maintain healthy eyesight 1. Eat for Healthy Eyes Eat foods rich in protective nutrients like omega 3, vitamin C and other antioxidants. A balanced diet helps reduce the risk of obesity and diseases like type II diabetes – diabetes is a major cause of adult blindness. 2. Exercise Physical activity stimulates blood circulation, improves oxygen levels to the eyes and helps remove toxins. 3. Quit Smoking Smoking increases the risk of cataracts, optic nerve damage and macular degeneration. Smokers have 3 times the risk of developing macular degeneration. 4. Wear Sunglasses Protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. Too much UV exposure increases your risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. Choose sunglasses that block 99-100% of UVA and UVB rays. 5. Use Safety Eyewear If you work with hazardous or airborne materials wear safety glasses or googles every time. 6. Look Away from the Computer Screen Staring too long at a computer screen can lead to eyestrain, blurred vision, trouble focusing at a distance, dry eyes, headaches, neck, back & shoulder pain. If your eyes are dry, blink more. Rest your eyes every 20 minutes by looking 20 metres away for 20 secs. Take a 15 minute screen-break every 2 hours. 7. Have a regular eye check To protect your sight and ensure early detection of problems get a regular periodic professional eye examination.

SANDERSON Memory & Cognition FX

SANDERSON Memory & Cognition FX

Your “Grey Matter” matters! Your brain is a wonder of nature, an incredible multi-faceted organ, all of which works collectively to keep you alive, participate in and make sense of the world you live in. The benefits of a healthy functioning brain are black and white, it is essential to enable you to live a long, healthy and fulfilling life; and it’s never too late (or too early) to take steps to maintain a healthy brain. 5 Easy Steps to Optimise Brain Health Take care of your heart What’s good for your heart is good for your brain: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking and obesity have all been associated with higher rates of declining brain health and increased risk of dementia. Healthy blood vessels support a healthy brain and thinking skills. Get active There is good evidence that regular physical activity gives brains a healthy boost. Regular exercise is associated with better brain function and reduced risk of cognitive decline. Any exercise is better than none, and regular physical activity on most days is best. Mentally challenge yourself Use it or lose it! Scientists have found that learning new activities or skills helps build new brain cells and strengthen the connections in the brain. Whether its learning a new language, a new sport or a new hobby, or doing puzzles, challenge yourself mentally and keep learning. Eat healthy “Let food be thy medicine”. Your brain needs a range of nutrients to function properly, and evidence indicates that a balanced diet may help maintain brain health and functionality. For example the healthy Omega 3 fatty acids found in fish have been linked to a number of positive benefits for brain health. Get social Most humans are social animals and prefer company to isolation. Social engagement has been found to be beneficial for cognitive function, as well as vascular condition and mood. Social activities that combine both mental and physical activity such as dancing or team sports, provide even greater positives for brain health. What about health supplements for the brain? There are numerous natural ‘nootropic’ substances that may help support brain health or promote functions such as memory. While there are no ‘magic bullets’, as more research is done, the efficacy of these ingredients is becoming clearer. Sanderson have reviewed much of the available research and developed a complex of what we believe are a group of nootropic nutrients with good evidence for supporting brain health, and in particular, memory and cognitive functions. KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS: Choline – a neurotransmitter precursor that supports healthy nerve cells. L-Theanine – an amino acid found in tea that supports calmness and promotes mental focus. Bacopa monieri – an Indian herb widely used to support memory and mental function. Rhodiola rosea – a herb that promotes feelings of well-being and supports mental focus. Gotu kola – a neuro-protective herb that supports blood circulation and mental function. Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid – help maintain normal homocysteine levels – deficiency is associated with cognitive decline. Huperzine A – a special plant extract from Huperzia Serrata that supports memory, cognition and behaviour. Vitamin E – deficiency of this neuro-protective antioxidant has been identified as a marker for age-related mental decline. AVAILABLE IN A 60 TABLET PACK EACH TABLET CONTAINS: Choline Bitartrate (40% Choline) 200mg L-Theanine 200mg Bacopa Monnieri (50% extract) 150mg Rhodiola Rosea (5% Rosavins) 150mg Gotu Kola (40% Triterpenes) 100mg Vitamin B12 400mcg Folic Acid 300mcg Huperzine A (Huperzia Serrata extract) 100mcg Vitamin E 30iu   SUPERIOR LOW ALLERGY FORMULATION: This formulation is free from artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners and preservatives, cereals...

SANDERSON 1-a-day SMARTY FISH

SANDERSON 1-a-day SMARTY FISH

Numerous international studies have found Children’s diets frequently do not include the recommended servings of fish to provide adequate levels of Omega 3 essential fatty acids for good physical and mental health. Studies have also demonstrated the importance of EPA and DHA for brain development, mood and behavior. While DHA is a component of brain tissue and has been marketed for children’s mental development, research shows children (and adults) need both EPA and DHA Omega 3s, and EPA is actually more effective for brain functions such as mood and behaviour.
