84% of women suffering with menopausal symptoms felt that Cleanmarine® MenoMin had a positive effect on their lives

Following a recent three month study, commissioned by Cleanmarine®, focusing on menopausal symptoms, 84%* of the women involved felt that just two capsules of Cleanmarine® MenoMin taken daily had a positive effect on their perimenopause and menopause symptoms.

77%* of the women involved in the study also reported a reduction in hot flushes in just 30 days and 66%* noticed a significant improvement in sexual desire, which again is often another negative impact of perimenopause and menopause.

Perimenopause is the transitional time which can last anything between 4 and 10 years prior to menopause where women suffer from many of the negative symptoms associated with menopause including night time sweats, hot flushes, decreased libido, weight gain, mood swings and fatigue, due to the decrease in oestrogen production.

Speaking about the new product, Official Ambassador and Broadcaster, Lorraine Keane, commented, “As women our hormones are changing all the time. Cleanmarine® MenoMin gives me the essential Omega 3 goodness and Vitamins I need to stay healthy, helping me feel more balanced. I feel better, am sleeping better and have more energy. Managing a family, career and household is difficult enough without having to suffer with hormone fluctuations in my case perimenopause. I love supporting women and sharing my positive experiences. Cleanmarine® MenoMin is natural, Irish and genuinely works so I’m delighted to be associated with this new product.”

Cleanmarine® MenoMin is an all in one perimenopause and beyond multivitamin which has been proven** to manage many of the unpleasant symptoms associated with perimenopause and beyond. The synergistic blend contains Omega 3 from Krill Oil (the fastest and purest delivery of Omega 3 possible, surpassing traditional, highly processed fish oils and without any fishy aftertaste) alongside B-Vitamins, folate, biotin, soy Isoflavones and Vitamin D3.

Speaking about the new supplement, Nutritional Therapist and Author of Premenstrual Syndrome: The Essential Guide, Susie Perry Debice, said, “Cleanmarine® MenoMin stands out for me as it is so effective for a number of the most common menopausal symptoms: hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, tiredness and lack of sexual desire. Early studies indicate fantastic results; 84% of women reported a positive effect on symptoms. That’s pretty good news from just two capsules a day!”

Cleanmarine® MenoMin for Women is stocked in Health Stores and Pharmacies nationwide, RRP €24.99

Press Release - Ward off the Winter Weather with Manuka Health Honey

Survey shows people turn to natural supplements to ward off colds

Manuka Honey with CycloPowerTM Chewable Tablets Launched

Wednesday, 13th January 2016

> 80% understand that Manuka Honey is a suitable treatment for a sore throat and more than 65% understand that it is suitable for the treatment of regular colds / cough.
> Just over a third of us use Manuka Honey for its health benefits.
> Approximately 13% of us go to the doctor when they have a cold or cough, but almost 30% visit our pharmacist.
> 20% of Irish people use a natural remedy to ward off colds and more than 76% regularly use natural health supplements to maintain their health.

More than half of us take vitamin C to ward off a cold, and almost a third of us opt to sleep it off, according to a survey* from Naturalife to mark the launch today of Manuka Health Honey Chewable Tablets with CycloPowerTM. But a significant percentage of us (c. 17%) use Manuka Honey.

With the predicted onset of much colder weather later this month, today’s launch of a new, convenient method of delivering all the benefits of natural Manuka Honey is timely. More than half of Irish people have bought Manuka Honey, with more than a third of them doing so for its health benefits.

The survey also found;

> Almost 17% of us take Manuka Honey to ward off a cold or infection, and 80% understand that it can be used effectively to treat sore throats.
> The source of real Manuka Honey was reasonably well known, with 41% correctly identifying New Zealand.
> Almost 20% of people are confused about MGO ratings / measurements and 13% are unaware of how to identify whether Manuka Honey is authentic or not.

Top natural remedies for colds / infections

1. Vitamin C 57.5%
2. Regular Honey 47.2%
3. Lemon 44.7%
4. Garlic 29.2%
5. Sleep it off 28.0%
6. Manuka Honey 17%

The new chewable Manuka Honey MGO 400+ tablets contain a new food technology known as CycloPowerTM which contains plant-based cyclodextrins. Cyclodextrin is a natural bioactive booster that helps dietary supplements to work better. Within the body this happens when the supplement comes in contact with fluids in the mouth and digestive system, thus releasing the Manuka honey in a sustained manner. It is to natural supplements what turbo is to vehicles – a way to get more performance without increasing the dose.

Manuka Honey MGO 400+ tablets with CycloPower ™ support good bacteria in mouth and throat are pleasant tasting, enjoyable to consume and unique in that they are the only Manuka Honey tablet of its kind.

“Manuka Honey combined with Cyclodextrins, a natural plant derived molecule, maximise the activity of Manuka Honey increasing its antibacterial effect and delivery in the body. Cyclodextrins provide the power in CycloPower™”, commented Mandy Suddes, Head of R&D, Manuka Health, New Zealand.

Manuka Honey MGO 400+ chewable tablets with CycloPowerTM are convenient, and come in a blister pack that can be kept in your bag or in your desk drawer, so they are always at hand when you feel a cough, cold, sore throat or mouth infection coming on.

The amount of sugar in our health supplements is an important factor when making a decision, and the low sugar content in the new CycloPower tablets is a significant plus factor in its favour,” says Nutritional Therapist Elsa Jones. “As well as having all the benefits of natural Manuka Honey, the CycloPower element in these tablets transports those benefits deeper into the body”.

Manuka Honey with CycloPowerTM chewable tablets;

> Are convenient
> Have a low GI (Glycaemic Index) – suitable for diabetics
> Are up to 50 times more potent than MGO 400+ Manuka Honey
> Value for money - The enhanced bioavailability of CycloPower™ tablets makes them excellent value for money.
> Recommended use: Place one chewable tablet in the mouth and chew or allow it to dissolve.

“CycloPower tablets are convenient, mild tasting and have a low GI,” continued Mandy Suddes. “They offer a great new alternative to Manuka honey in a jar for people who dislike the taste of honey and also for those who need to watch their blood sugar levels”.

Looking for Manuka honey from New Zealand with a high MGO factor is a great way for consumers to rule out the fake honey with an MGO below 100+, which won’t provide the same health benefits.

What is Methylglyoxal (MGO)?

Dietary Methylglyoxal (MGO) is a compound that occurs naturally when glucose is made available to a living cell in the human body, plant or animal. Methylglyoxal is produced to insure every cell's health. MGO Manuka Honey is the only 100% natural food that has a strong antibacterial and antiviral activity due to the presence of Methylglyoxal that forms in natural form in the nectar of the flowers of Manuka Bush, ready for collection by the honey-bee. Methylglyoxal is transferred into the honey where it remains stable. Dietary Methylglyoxal found in Manuka Honey is resistant to heat, light, body fluids and enzymatic activity. This property makes MGO Manuka Honey superior to any other honey.

Manuka Health is the first company to bring this information to light and to market MGO Manuka Honey that indicates the level of Methylglyoxal in Manuka Honey. Molecules of Methylglyoxal have demonstrated high activity against any Streptococcus (like MRSA), H. pylori, E. coli and other bacteria resistant to classic antibiotic drugs.

* The research was conducted on behalf of Manuka Health by Mortar London amongst 2,100 adults in the UK and Ireland. The survey was carried out between 12th October and 14th October 2015.

Sponsorship - Triathlon Ireland and Udo's Choice

Udo's Choice announced as sponsors of Triathlon Ireland's Coach Education Programme

Today 27th May, 2014, Triathlon Ireland announced Udo's Choice as official sponsors of the organisations expanding coach education programme for the next three years.

With membership of Triathlon Ireland having grown 15% in 2013 and this year seeing membership increases of over 1000 on the same time as last year, the need for a world class coach education programme is evident. At elite level Ireland now has more triathletes than ever before vying for qualification for the Olympic Games in Rio, along with, for the first time ever, medal opportunities in paratriathlon at the Paralympic Games. The talent amongst the younger ages is also burgeoning with 17 athletes on the Irish Youth and Junior Squad, up from 6 just a year ago.

With nutrition and recovery being such a key ingredient in triathlon success the partnership is good news for Irish triathletes at all levels as they can now tap into the knowledge and expertise of the rapidly growing Co. Wicklow based brand.

Commenting on the partnership, Triathlon Ireland CEO Chris Kitchen said:

“It is fantastic to partner up with a company such as Udo’s Choice. Their sponsorship of the Triathlon Ireland Coaching Programme will not only enable us to drive this hugely important area forward but also is a great fit for the organisation with products that can be of real benefit to training. Coaching is a foundation to the development of triathlon and we look forward to a close working relationship with Udo’s Choice to help us develop and strengthen Triathlon in Ireland.”

Udo’s Choice is part of a family of brands from Naturalife Health, which also includes Cleanmarine Krill Oil and One Nutrition, all of which will be utilised by Triathlon Ireland as part of the sponsorship.

Announcing the sponsorship Naturalife Health director Darragh Hammond said:

“Triathlon Ireland and Udo’s Choice is an ideal partnership as the interest in endurance sports has quickly grown over the last number of years, particularly with those now keen to take part in triathlons. This is the perfect example of our focus on fuelling athletes and improving performance as triathletes are very aware of the nutritional requirements needed to compete at this level. Being a cyclist myself I know first-hand how closely nutrition is tied to performance”.

Over the course of the three year partnership Udo’s Choice will be teaming up with Triathlon Ireland at coach education courses and triathlon events around the country as well as providing a wealth of nutritional advice and tips on the Triathlon Ireland website and monthly newsletter.
