  • Daniella Moyles – My PMS Story

    Daniella MoylesWith 108 PMS free days and counting thanks to Cleanmarine for Women, broadcaster Daniella Moyles shares her PMS story...

    Growing up I suffered PMS every month like clockwork. I would get the whole works; mood swings, food cravings which resulted in or at the very least making a significant contribution to aggressive breakouts that would generally leave me scarring. Agonising abdominal cramps, piercing headaches and everything in between. On top of that, I hated taking medication to combat these symptoms so regularly, to avoid feeling like I walking painkiller I would often suffer through sometimes for days or concede defeat, cancel plans and curl up in best.

    I had fully accepted this was the reality of my months until menopause so I once did the math; losing up to 3 days per month to PMS could cost me 8 years over all throughout my life! It was that stark realisation that made me take action to find a simple, natural solution for this all to common female problem. I figured there just had to be another way to get these symptoms under control. With just a little research I came across Cleanmarine for Women and instantly thought there had to be a loophole. On paper this product was everything I was looking for; convenient, natural, healthy and focused on regulating the hormonal activity around PMS.

    I was leaving for New York the following day and decided I would start to take Cleanmarine for Women once I got home as a trail to see if it really did what it promised. Well maybe it was faith or a big kick in the arse to take action but of that very holiday I had my worst EVER encounter with PMS that resulted in me curled up in the foetal position on the floor of a Starbucks facing timing my Mam in floods of tears as my poor friend frantically searched the streets for a store or pharmacy selling nuclear grade painkillers.

    That was the last straw for me.

    Cleanmarine for WomenWhen I got home I bought one box of Cleanmarine for Women, it has 60 capsules, which would last me for one month. It was so convenient and became such a simple, routine part of my morning that as soon as the box ran out I found myself buying another without a thought. 2 weeks into that second box was when I distinctly remember noticing the change. My Skin was so clear and glowing, I had spent no days in bed, taken no painkillers and eaten no Nutella from the jar.

    It’s just over a year now that I have been taking Cleanmarine for Women and so far I saved myself 108 or so bad days and changed them into perfectly good, productive ones. I really can’t put a value on that!

    Cleanmarine for Women is available in Health Stores, Pharmacies and Online.

  • Advice from the Eczema Experts

    Suvex Soothe® went along to the Irish Skin Foundations “Eczema Expert – Advice for Life” morning in September to learn more about what causes eczema and how to prevent it.  We certainly learned a lot.  Here are five of the key points we picked up from the eczema experts.

    Girl applying skin cream

    1. What causes some of us to develop skin conditions?

    Flaggrin is a barrier protein found in skin which we inherit. The word flaggrin comes from filament aggregating protein.  It works like a cling film protection layer for skin, without this protective layer skin becomes leaky.  If you are missing the Flaggrin protein you will notice lots of extra lines on the palms of your hands. Those of us who are missing Flaggrin protein, about 10% of the population worldwide, are more likely to develop atopic skin conditions.  If both parents are missing this Flaggrin protein the chance of their child having an atopic skin condition increases.

    2. Can you help to prevent a child from developing eczema?Emollient on babys face

    Dr Grainne O’Regan told us applying an emollient to a child’s skin every day in the first year of their life can reduce their chance of developing eczema by up to 50%.  An amazingly simple but effective method of helping to prevent your child developing eczema.

    20% of children in Ireland have an atopic skin condition.  Don’t wait until a skin condition develops to start taking care of a child’s skin, start using a daily emollient on your child as early as possible in life to help prevent skin conditions. Check the emollient ingredients carefully to ensure it does not contain any possible skin irritants.

    3. “Switch Off” your atopic skin condition and help to prevent the Atopic March.

    As the old saying goes prevention is better than cure, early intervention to treat an atopic skin condition could prevent many other allergic diseases developing later on. The Atopic March, sometime called Allergic March, refers to the natural history or typical progression of allergic diseases that often begin early in life. These include atopic dermatitis (eczema), food allergyallergic rhinitis (hay fever) and asthma Early and effective treatment of a skin condition can help prevent your body developing other allergic diseases.

    4.  Are food and Nut Allergies linked to skin conditions?

    Oils or Creams containing nut based ingredients are not recommended for children as they may cause children to develop a peanut allergy subsequently. This can happen if skin comes into contact with the nut as an ingredient in a cream, oil or lotion ingredient before a person ingests the nut as a food.  So the body may then reject the nut as a food causing an allergic reaction.  Managing what we put on our skin can help to prevent food allergies as they are the next step in the Atopic March. So make sure that your emollient cream does not contain any potential allergens such as nut oils.

    5.  Summer Drying can affect those with Pollen Allergies.Drying Sheets on line

    Pollen is a common irritant for those with eczema. If anyone in your family is allergic to pollen do not dry their bedclothes outside during the pollen season!  Sheets on the line absorb pollen in the air as they dry and pass it on to skin as we sleep, eight hours of continuous contact can cause severe reactions.   So use the dryer during summer to prevent pollen coming into contact with skin on the bedclothes.

    To help you learn more about managing eczema The Irish Skin Foundation has produced a new booklet What you need to know about eczema  help you understand your condition, learn about management and find more useful tips for living with eczema.

  • 7 Natural Cold & Flu Tips

    Nutritionist Sarah Brereton shares her 7 Natural Cold & Flu Tips...

    1. Drink - Drinking plenty of fluids will help you to replace any you may have lost through sweating and a runny nose. Try our Seasonal Soothing Tonic recipe, a soothing way to take MGO™ Manuka Honey, perfect for when you are feeling under the weather.

    1 Lemon
    2 tsp of MGO™ Manuka Honey
    Boiled Water
    For an extra boost add a chunk of fresh ginger and a small clove of fresh garlic. Garlic and ginger both have natural antiviral properties.

    1. Squeeze the juice of the lemon into a mug.
    2. Add the honey followed by the boiled water and stir well.
    3. Allow to cool if your throat is sore.
    4. Sip while huddled under a cosy blanket and repeat until well.


    2. Rest - Get plenty of rest. Resting when you first come down with cold or flu helps your body direct all its energy towards battling the virus.

    3. Use supplements - Taking just 30mg of Zinc a day can shorten the duration of a cold. Alternatively, if you’re one of these people who picks up every bug going, Echinacea should be your new best friend, try Irish Botanica Echinacea.

    4. Steam inhalation may help to ease your congestion by loosening mucus and making it easier to clear by blowing your nose. Try adding
    menthol or eucalyptus oil to warm water, put a towel over your head and inhale; the steam will help to clear the passageways in your nose.


    5. Gargling with salt water can help to relieve the symptoms of a sore throat and congestion. The salt helps to reduce the inflammation and draw out any excess fluid that may be contributing to the symptoms of congestion. Try half a teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water.

    6. Sleep with an extra pillow under your head this will help to drain the nasal passages.

    7. MGO™ Manuka Honey - Take one to two teaspoons of MGO™ Manuka Honey daily, your essential winter support.

    If your symptoms worsen or persist contact a Doctor or qualified Healthcare professional.

    Always choose MGO™ Genuine Manuka Honey. Available in Health Stores, Pharmacies and Online. Free recipe booklet with every purchase

  • Let's Talk Menopause with Lorraine Keane

    "Honestly I never thought I was in the target market for anything to do with Menopause OR Perimenopause, until I asked to try Cleanmarine Menomin.

    I have after all suffered with my hormones my whole life. Most recently irritability, tiredness, disturbed sleep, decreased sex drive - but I thought that was normal.  Aren't we all busy, therefore tired?  It's my 'To Do' list for tomorrow that keeps me awake and then of course the 'lack of sleep' will make you irritable and naturally less inclined to feel 'romantic'.

    Well now I know that it's not ok to just put up with these symptoms, not when there is something out there that will help.  Since I started taking Cleanmarine MenoMin I am sleeping better and therefore I am less irritable and tired and just feeling better in myself and about myself.  It's natural so you don't have to worry about taking it long term.  I just wish I had discovered Cleanmarine MenoMin earlier.  For our health and wellbeing we should consider taking it from as early as 35.  I am so glad I'll be ahead of the possy.

    Menopause is inevitable but I know by balancing my hormones at this stage of my life, Cleanmarine MenoMin will only make the transition easier AND it has all the vitamins and Omega 3 oils I need to maintain a healthy body at the same time. It's a win-win!”

    About Cleanmarine MenoMin

    The key active nutrients found in MenoMin have been carefully selected for their unique applications in hormone balance, skin health and energy production since these are the area in which most menopausal women need support.

    - Omega 3 Krill Oil is a pure, sustainably sourced form of omega-3 oil similar to fish oil. Studies have revealed that the essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) found in krill oil have a 59% better uptake in the body compared to fish oil making krill oil more easily absorbed and more effective than fish oil. This is why studies also show that krill oil has the same clinical benefits as fish oil for hormone balance and weight loss but at much smaller doses and it has not fishy repeat!

    - Soy Isoflavones are natural plant substances that have a mild oestrogenic effect on oestrogen sensitive cells in the body. Supplementing with soy isoflavones is a great way to dampen down symptoms that are directly related to fluctuating or falling oestrogen levels such as hot flushes, memory lapses, mood swings and fatigue.

    Cleanmarine MenoMin

    - B-vitamins are essential for energy production, metabolism and even help balance brain chemicals responsible for our mood. MenoMin contains B6 for hormone balance, B2 for energy production and skin health, B3 for health mucus membranes, B12 for the nervous system and folic acid for heart health.

    - Vitamin D is an essential nutrient used by the body to regulate calcium absorption and bone maintenance. Regardless of whether you experience menopausal symptoms or not all menopausal women are at increased risk of osteoporosis making vitamin D a priority nutrients.

  • Your Guide to Good Bacteria

    Nutritional Cook Susan Jane White shares her top tips for selecting a "good" bacteria pal

    Udo’s Choice microbiotics are always live, fresh and active – everything you want from a good bacteria pal.

    I store my milk the same way as I store my microbiotics (probiotics) – chill them in the fridge! They are live and active. That’s their natural home, right?

    Of course you can buy milk from the grocer’s shelves that will probably last for two years in your cupboard. But that ain’t what I call fresh my friends. It’s certainly not what I term ‘active.’ I feel the same about high performance microbiotics.


    So how do I choose the right microbiotic? This is my checklist, when my pipes need a party...

    1. Live and refrigerated? 

    Yup. But don’t worry – you can still travel with Udo’s Choice microbiotics and leave them un-refrigerated for short spells of time. Phew.

    Udo's Choice Super 82. Age specific strengths? 

    Very handy – especially the sucky ones for my children (Super 5). The Infant’s powdered microbiotics is a cinch to sneak into their food too. High five.

    3. Multiple strains of good bacteria? 

    Udo’s Choice microbiotics are not nicknamed “Superhero 8” for nothing! They should probably start putting little red cloaks on the bottles too.

    4. Sugar-free? Additive-free?

    Thankfully yes.

    5. Do they actually work?

    By golly they do! I swear by Udo’s Choice.
