We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of Blooms supplements on Echolife’s Natural Health virtual shelves. Blooms is an Australian-owned company that has been providing quality products to support and boost the health and wellbeing of Australians since 1936. Blooms has evolved from a small Sydney health-food store to a medium-sized company that manufactures 70% of its products locally (from growing to harvesting to packing).

Well, it also turns out food can have a different sort of impact on the eater: uplifting or lowering mood. We’re not talking about eating ice-cream to cheer yourself up (no matter how effective this is short-term!) – but how the actual nutrients or chemicals present in food affect the body and brain chemistry, for good or for bad.
If you’re eating a fair amount of mood lowering foods, you might like to substitute with better alternatives for a few weeks and see how you feel.

Before the week is out, we thought we’d write an update on our Wellbeing Wednesday Challenge. So just in case you were holding your breath and wondering if we did manage to eat Chia Seeds every day for one week – you probably weren’t, but we’ll tell you anyway – we did it!
Giddy with the taste of success (we’ve already mentioned chia seeds don’t really taste like anything), we thought we’d tackle something a little trickier. Something we know we should do but never get around to doing – or do once every two weeks for 30 seconds at a time when we ought to be doing it every morning for at least 5 minutes – that’s right, we’re looking at you dry body brush.
