    Elektra Magnesium Mineral Salt Flakes 250g

    $12.45

    Magnesium has so many therapeutic benefits yet most of us do not get the daily recommended amount.

     
    The great benefit оf Magnesium through bath or foot soak іs thаt yоu absorb magnesium via thе skin much mоrе efficiently thаn if yоu were tо ingest tablets and powders, which аrе hard tо digest and absorb properly through thе gut wall. According to researchers the average person is lucky if they evеn get 20% оf thе magnesium frоm tablets making іt tо tissue cells inside thе body. The majority іs excreted tоо fast. If yоu try tо compensate by taking extra oral doses it causes the stool to liquefy, іn which case thе magnesium іs lost tоо quickly.

     
    Another great benefit from soaking is that it gives the body the opportunity to release waste products via skin into the water. Use comfortably hot water for best results. Perspiring helps the excretion process. When the body can release toxins via the skin it eases the burden of processing of the toxins back through the digestive system via kidney and liver. Remember to drink a lot of purified and mineralised water to allow best blood circulation, blood pressure and detoxing. If you feel faint or hyper-stimulated in a hot bath it is a sign that your cells are dehydrated. Reduce the heat of the bath and drink more water. In this case it is wise to avoid sodium salt until symptoms disappear and blood pressure returns to normal, as sodium tends to dehydrate.

     
    Elektra Magnesium Chloride Flakes ‘food grade’ can also be used to make mineral drinking water from filtered, distilled or rain water. It can also be used to make a mouth wash with a stronger concentration (1 teaspoon per 250-300mL). Very alkalising and good for teeth and gum health. Magnesium is anti-inflammatory.

     
    Hexahydrate 98% MgCl2.6H20 (min 46% MgCl2)
    • Food-grade quality magnesium chloride salt with sea trace minerals
    • Naturally evaporated from salt water located 3,200m above sea level in the Tibetan Plateau
    • Laboratory tested – No mercury or lead
    • Contain over 16% elemental magnesium ions

     
    RECOMMENDED DILUTION & USES
    • BATH: 2 cups per bath.
    • FOOTSOAK: 1 dessertspoon in half bucket hot water.
    • MASSAGE or COMPRESS: 50g or 60g per 100ml water (adjust lower for sensitive skin). You can also apply additional plant oil to massage. With direct application to skin in massage or compress you may experience temporary tingling sensation. The solution may be diluted further if required. As magnesium cellular stores are replenished the tingling sensation dissipates.
    • MOUTHWASH: 1 teaspoon per 250-350ml purified water. Store solution away from daylight. This dilution can also be used as an eye make up remover with application to cotton applicator.
    • MINERAL WATER: To restore minerals in drinking water after distillation, reverse osmosis filtering, or in rain water, add about 5 flakes (small pinch) in 1.25 litres water.

     
    (Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate) 98% MgCl2.6H20 (min 46% magnesium chloride) pH=7 in solution. Flakes are deliquescent ie, will draw moisture if exposed to air for too long. Keep air tight.

    Don’t know which cream to choose first? Try our Elektra Magnesium Cream Sample Pack of 3: 20g tube of ‘Herbal’, 20g tube of ‘Zest-Citrus’, and 20g tube of ‘Island Spice’.

     
    Elektra Magnesium Cream is a hydrating skin conditioner and magnesium supplement. It is made from a blend of rich plant oils and butters (organic or wild harvested) infused with natural magnesium chloride salts (15%).

     
    ‘Float Away’ with the ‘Island Spice’ cream with the delicate fragrance of fermented papaya, and pure essential oils of geranium egypt, magnolia (michelia alba) and ravensara aromatica. The texture of the cream is light and fluffy and it is very easily absorbed. It leaves skin very smooth and silky and is for all skin types. Use for relief of dry skin, acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, itchy bites, after sun recovery, muscle cramp, joint pain, swelling, restless legs, stress and tension. Great for use in massage to help stimulate blood flow, oxygenation and circulation, relax tight muscles and joints and relieves symptoms of stress.

     
    The 'Zest-Citrus' cream is fresh and zingy with fragrance of lemongrass, bergamot and vanilla for when you need a citrus lift. Great for oily or combination skin. Use for relief of dry skin, acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, itchy bites, after sun recovery, muscle cramp, joint pain, swelling, restless legs, stress and tension. Great for use in massage to help stimulate blood flow, oxygenation and circulation, relax tight muscles and joints and relieves symptoms of stress.

     
    With warming herbal aromas, the 'Herbal' cream is unique in its ability to moisturise, soothe and protect very dry stressed skin, with a slightly richer finish. It is the more ‘earthy’ of the Elektra blends with antiseptic herbal extracts and essential oils of ylang ylang, patchouli and rose geranium. It is rich and creamy providing protection for extra dry skin. Use for relief of dry skin, acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, itchy bites, after sun recovery, muscle cramp, joint pain, swelling, restless legs, stress and tension.

    Use Elektra Magnesium Cream as a moisturiser once or twice a day all over your body, face or underarm as a deodorant, or with relaxation massage. Rub into skin in a circular motion to help the oils and butters penetrate and engorge the dry flat skin cells. The better condition the skin, the easier it is for magnesium to be absorbed. Avoid eye area or broken skin. Thin sensitive skin may feel a tingling sensation as magnesium salts deliver ionic bio-electrical charge. Such skin sensations, if they occur, are only temporary and a tolerance is built up over time. You can add any kind of extra plant oil (eg. coconut oil, rosehip oil, avocado oil, etc.) on top of the magnesium cream to dilute if required. Lipids help to numb the sensation of the salts.

    About Arnica (Arnica Montana): This European Mountain flower has been used for centuries in herbal medicine. Weleda Arnica Cream contains both Arnica flower and root extracts. Arnica has an unusually strong rhizome and root which forms a dense mat underground. It requires an environment with extreme differences in both day/night and summer/winter temperatures and the strong sunlight normally found high in the mountains. It prefers acidic, sileous soil. The golden yellow blossoms (asteracea family) are harvested as soon as they are fully developed. Arnica is made-up of many components, including flavonoids, Silicic Acid, cartonoids and essential oils. The extract from this plant serves as a fungicide and as an immune-stimulant. Medically, Arnica is used externally as an application for bruises, sprains, stings or wounds. In body care Arnica provides a layer of warmth and helps to soothe tired and tight muscles. Weleda cooperates with different partners in cultivating Arnica.

     
    Directions (Adult/Children): Gently massage a small amount into the affected area, three to four times daily in the acute stage and twice daily as the condition improves, or as directed by your health care professional. If symptoms persist, consult your health professional.

    Canning & Pickling Salt 1kg

    $11.50

    Canning & Pickling Salt is pure salt, free from heavy metals, free flowing agents, other inorganic minerals and contaminants. NaCl 100%.

     
    Salt provides two elements that are essential for life and for good health: sodium and chloride. The body cannot manufacture either element itself, so they must be supplied by food.

     
    Sodium plays a critical role in body physiology. It controls the volume of fluid in the body and helps maintain the acid-base level. Sodium is an electrolyte, like potassium, calcium and magnesium; it regulates the electrical charges moving in and out of cells in the body. Sodium is important in proper nerve conduction, in aiding the passage of various nutrients into cells, and in the maintenance of blood pressure. Sodium-dependent enzymes are required for carbohydrate digestion.

     
    Chloride ions also help maintain proper blood volume, blood pressure, and pH of body fluids. Chloride is the major extracellular anion and contributes to many body functions including the maintenance of blood pressure, acid-base balance, muscular activity, and the movement of water between fluid compartments. Chloride is the major component of hydrochloric acid, which is needed for protein digestion.

     
    Symptoms of low hydrochloric acid include bloating, acne, iron deficiency, belching, indigestion, diarrhoea and multiple food allergies. Chloride is available in very few foods, and adequate chloride must be obtained from salt.

     
    Container Size: 1 kg Bag
    Each 5gm contains: Sodium 740 mg and 740 mg of Chloride
    Directions for Use: Use liberally to food and as directed unless advised otherwise.

    The Eat Real Food Cookbook – David Gillespie

    $39.95 $35.96

    For nearly ten years, David Gillespie has warned us of the dangers of sugar, and Australia has listened. More recently he has alerted us to the other toxin in our food supply: seed oil. Most processed food – from French fries to yoghurt to spreadable butter – contains one or both of these ingredients, so the question is: how do we eat real food?

     
    This is an intensely practical book designed to solve an intensely practical problem. How to create high quality food – simply, inexpensively quickly and every day – that’s completely free of the twin evils of fructose (the dangerous part of sugar) and seed oils (the man-made fats recently added to our food supply).

     
    Expanding on his 2015 bestseller Eat Real Food, David shows us how to:
    – Identify and avoid sugar – and seed-oil-laden supermarket products
    – Identify and shop for the healthy options
    – Make the foods we normally buy in jars and packets – from mayonnaise to bread to tomato sauce
    – Make simple, inexpensive daily meals the entire family will love
    – Pack and plan for meals away from home
    – Create healthier treats for all occasions, from kids' birthdays to cocktail parties

     
    The Eat Real Food Cookbook is your guide to saying 'no' to the food the manufacturers want you to eat and 'yes' to the sort of food that will help you manage your weight and the long-term health of your family.

    Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz 230ml

    $33.85

    Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz formula glides on and absorbs easily. It can be used in massage to relax tight muscles and joints.

     
    Magnesium Oil Spritz has a refreshing mandarin fragrance. This body spray offers potent high concentration magnesium chloride plus botanical ingredients to enhance absorption, avoiding the sticky irritating residue of straight magnesium oil. It is not a moisturizer like Elektra Magnesium Cream, however it delivers high concentration magnesium where required to relieve muscle and joint tension. Great for loosening things up! It can be combined in a massage with Elektra Magnesium Cream, which lubricates and conditions the skin. Use Elektra Magnesium Cream for dry skin conditions. The better the condition of the skin the better the absorption of magnesium. The more lipids (fats) in the skin layer the less likely you are to feel any tingling sensation from the salts. If the skin is very thin and sensitive start with Elektra Magnesium Cream first and work up to adding Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz formula gradually. Avoid application to broken skin.

     
    All Natural Ingredients: Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate (‘food grade’ and tested in Australia by an independent laboratory, with no mercury and no lead tested down to 10ppb), Vegetable glycerine, Cocoyl proline, Caprylyl/Capryl glucoside, Potassium sorbate, Sodium borate, and the Essential Oils of Mandarin, Juniper berry and Rosalina.

    The truth is, we were told wrong! Dieting makes us fat! The good news is there is a secret to easy, sustainable weight loss and it is in this book!

     

    Forget the hunger, the shakes, egg white omelettes, counting calories, and slaving away in the gym for hours on end…Turn your body into a fat burning machine by doing the opposite! You’ll be left wondering why in the world you didn’t know this earlier.

     

    And telling all your friends why they need to…bring back the fat!

    Sweet Poison – Why Sugar Makes us Fat – David Gillespie

    $29.95 $26.96

    David Gillespie was 40kg overweight, lethargic, sleep-deprived and the father of four, with twins on the way. He knew he needed to lose weight fast, but he had run out of diets – all had failed.

     

    After doing some reading on evolution (why weren't our forebears fat?), David cut sugar – specifically fructose – from his diet. He immediately started to lose weight, and kept it off. Slim, trim and fired up, David set out to look at the connection between sugar, our soaring obesity rates and some of the more worrying diseases of the twenty-first century, and discovered some startling facts in the process.

     

    • Sugar was once such a rare resource that nature decided we didn't need an off-switch – in other words, we can keep eating sugar without feeling full.
    • In the space of 150 years, we have gone from eating no added sugar to more than a kilogram a week.
    • You would need to run 7km every day of your life just to not put on weight as a result of eating that much sugar.
    • Two decades ago 1 in 14 adult Australians were obese; that figure is now 1 in 5.
    • The 'natural' sugar in one glass of unsweetened fruit juice per day for a year is enough to add just over 2.5kg your waistline.
    • The more sugar we eat, the more we want. Food manufacturers exploit our sugar addiction by lacing it through 'non-sweet' products, such as bread, sauces, soups and cereals.

     

    Sweet Poison exposes one of the great health scourges of our time and offers a wealth of practical and accessible information on how to avoid fructose, increase your enjoyment of food and lose weight.

    That Sugar Book – Damon Gameau

    $34.95 $31.46

    When actor and filmmaker Damon Gameau met a girl he was keen to impress he decided to get healthy by dramatically reducing his sugar intake. In no time he was slimmer, calmer, fitter and happier. He was also very curious: why did the elimination of sugar have such beneficial effects on his health and wellbeing? He decided to experiment and film the results. He would eat 40 teaspoons of sugar a day for 60 days. Crucially, he would only consume perceived 'healthy' foods like muesli bars, breakfast cereals, low-fat yoghurts, juices and smoothies.

     

    The results were staggering. Although his caloric intake was the same as his regular diet, he put on nearly 9 kilograms in 60 days. Within a couple of weeks, he had the beginnings of fatty liver disease. Doctors who monitored his health throughout warned him that he was on the road to obesity, diabetes and heart disease. His journey took him not just down a path to ill health, but to outback Australia and to the backblocks of the USA. He interviewed food manufacturers, health experts and large-scale consumers of the white stuff. He discovered that 80 per cent of products on our supermarket shelves contain sugar, and that 5.5 million Australians have fatty liver disease directly linked to their sugar consumption.

     

    That Sugar Book follows Damon on his journey and blows the lid on how the food industries make and sell our food, and how they are complicit in, and indeed determined to, maintain the status quo on the world's alarming and health-destroying sugar consumption. In also contains sensible advice on kicking the habit, foods to avoid, how to shop, how to read labels and how to cook sugar-free food, with the help of over thirty delicious, nurturing and easily prepared recipes.

     

    Fun, feisty and fired up, this book is set to change the eating habits of a generation.
