nu³ - The Nutrition Experts




Although my Instagram feed tends to be full of junk, I'm actually really into health food. I've often mentioned my expensive trips to Holland & Barrett to stock up on chia seeds, supplements & natural beauty products. As much as I love that store their stock is often quite limited. Like almost every other shop on the UK high street, if you're looking for something specific you're probably better off looking online. For example protein powders are something I always buy online because they're much cheaper and there's loads more types & flavours available. I buy from quite a few different health & nutrition websites. I was recently introduced to nu³. They're a German based company who specialise in organic/natural beauty, food & fitness products. As well as having a huge range of products, they also have a live chat feature so you can get free advice from industry experts. nu³ are currently a leading supplier of supplements throughout Europe. To celebrate the recent launch of their UK e-store, they sent me a few different products to try out.

Coconut water is one of my very favourite drinks. It's incredibly refreshing & is the perfect thing to rehydrate you after a workout. I'd never tried Kulau Pure Coconut Water* before but it tastes really great. I often take a carton with me to the gym but if I'm at home I love using coconut water as a smoothie base. For a really quick & nutritious but also delicious smoothie I blend together a carton of coconut water, one banana & a cup of frozen blueberries. It's super easy and really good for you.

I drink Yogi Tea nearly every night. Their Cinnamon & Chocolate teas are firm favourites of mine. They're really good at curbing sugar cravings after dinner & are very calming before bed. Bright Mood* is a new flavour to me but I liked the sound of it's mood enhancing properties. It's flavoured with cinnamon, hops, orange peel, cardamom, fennel, licorice, basil & lavender. The tea bags smell pretty horrid but the taste is a lot more palatable.

I'm a big fan of Burt's Bees so I was excited to try their Hand Salve*. I love Burt's Bees hand products especially their Beeswax & Banana Hand Creme and Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme. This product is a rich balm that would be perfect for anyone with really dry hands & it's extremely effective on cuticles too. It has a gorgeous lavender & rosemary scent to keep your hands smelling lovely all day long.

Weleda are a natural & organic skincare brand. They also create holistic remedies & homeopathic medicine which I think is really cool. I've tried a couple of their products before & really rate their baby range. Weleda Skin Food* is an incredibly thick face & body cream. This is one of Weleda’s oldest products & was originally formulated in 1926. It often pops up backstage at London Fashion Week. It's quite hard to spread so it's best used on really dry patches such as elbows, knees & feet. It's very moisturising & calms any irritation. It features plant extracts of viola, chamomile & calendula to soothe the skin & restore smoothness. It also contains pansy extract which is well known for it's antiseptic properties. I really like this product & apparently Adele loves it too!

  3. I drink 'Total Nutri-Greens' from MyProtein everyday. I already eat pretty well but I figure I can't harm myself by drinking healthy stuff too. When I have smoothies I try and add coconut oil but usually forget :P
    Not sure how I feel about coconut water. I'm not a fan of the original flavours but when it has lime in, then it's basically a cocktail!
