  • Lypo-Spheric 1000mg Vitamin C 30 Packets

    $54.99 $44.99

    Andrew’s counselling tips:

    • Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C is one of my favourite premium Vitamin C products to recommend due to it having superior absorption
    • Generally Vitamin C is not well absorbed in the gut, however, Lypo-spheric Vitamin C has been formulated where the vitamin is dispersed in a delivery vehicle so that it is easy absorbed
    • I like to suggest to customers if they don’t like the taste, squeeze the sachet into their favourite cool beverage and drink the contents in one swallow (like a shot) and to wait at least 15 minutes afterwards before eating
    • Don’t take at the same time as other natural health medications, antacids or omeprazole as it may affect it’s absorption
    • Don’t combine the sachet with hot liquid or freeze the sachets as it may affect its absorption
    • Product is sugar free, gluten free and suitable for vegetarians or vegans
    • Due to the high dose of Vitamin C contained in this product we recommend to check with your doctor before taking during pregnancy or breastfeeding

  • Otrivin Adult Nasal Spray 60 Sprays

    $12.99

    Andrew’s counselling tips:

    • Otrivin is a fantastic decongestant nasal spray which has an immediate local effect for a blocked nose within 1 to 2 minutes
    • However, overuse of Otrivin leads to a condition called ‘rebound congestion’. This is when the nasal passages get used to Otrivin’s local effect and when you stop using Otrivin your initial nasal congestion comes back, sometimes even worse than when you started
    • Therefore keep Otrivin use to a maximum of 3 days in a row, then take a break from it
    • If you’re wanting a long-term safe alternative to Otrivin, Flixonase or NeilMed could be the product for you
    • NOT to be used in pregnancy or breastfeeding

  • Codral Cold & Flu + Cough 24 Capsules

    $20.99

    • Codral Cold + Flu & Cough helps with cold and flu-like symptoms as the paracetamol reduces pain and fever, phenylephrine dries up a runny nose and dextromethorphan acts as cough suppressant for that dry irritating cough
    • Chlorpheniramine which is in the night-time tablets is a sedating antihistamine which lets you have a well rested night
    • I also really like to have a pack of cough lozenges on hand to help and try to soothe the throat when you have a cough
    • NOT to be used in pregnancy and breastfeeding
    • Night-time capsules can cause drowsiness

  • SOOV Bite Cream 25g

    $15.99

    Andrew’s counselling tips:

    • SOOV Bite Cream is a combination product which contains both a local anaesthetic to numb the itchy area and a mild antiseptic to stop the bite from potentially becoming infected
    • As a cream only works where you apply it, if there are lots of bites or stings on the body it may be useful to combine the product with something like an antihistamine tablet or liquid, which once absorbed into the bloodstream will work all over the body
    • It is a gentle product which can be used from the ages of 2 and over
    • I always let my customers know that if there is redness around the bite or sting site, draw a border around the redness with a pen and if the redness advances outside of the border whilst applying SOOV then I suggest you go see a doctor
