More than ever, during this challenging period, your wellbeing should be on top of your list of priorities. So, no matter what makes you feel good, just do it! Whether it is spending hours watching Netflix laying on the couch or keeping active and sweating out the negative vibes, pouring yourself a glass of wine (yes yes, even if it’s only Monday mid-afternoon … who cares if it makes you feel good?) or having some fancy food delivered straight to your door …
 
And because we can always use a little extra-help, here are a few yummy ways to take food supplements to help boost your wellbeing and mood for you to better navigate the current situation.
 
 
 
Apple Cider Vinegar
As a gummy

Alternative ways of taking age-old natural food supplements to boost your wellbeing
A popular at-home remedy that people have been using for centuries, Apple Cider Vinegar is made with fermented apples and has been trusted for its various health benefits including antimicrobial and antioxidants effects.
 
Don’t feel like taking a table spoon of Apple Cider Vinegar a day? We hear you! And I have found the perfect alternative: Goli Gummy
Those gummies do not taste like vinegar at all, they actually taste like little apple candies, and taking two of them a day is the same as having a shot of apple cider vinegar and therefore brings you the same age-old benefits:
  • Better digestion
  • Boosted immunity
  • Curbed appetite to help weight management
  • Enhanced energy
  • Detoxification
  • Regulated cholesterol
 
Cherry on the cake: it is vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, organic, unfiltered and free of gelatine. I’m already on my second bottle of those little things and can’t imagine leaving the house in the morning without first taking my two gummies.
 
Just what the doctor ordered!
 
Available online on Goli Hong Kong official e-store and at selected retailers
HKD 220 for 1 bottle (60 pieces – 1 month) / HKD 888 for 5 bottles
 
 
 
Marine Collagen
In a chocolate snack

Marine collagen is a pure form of hypoallergenic protein produced from the skins of fish. Pretty gross, isn’t it? But it has many scientifically proven benefits (including being rather sustainable as it uses part of the fishes which would normally go to waste):
  • Strengthened bones
  • Improved skin, hair and nails
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Reduced joint pain
  • Enhanced brain health
 
Still, I find the idea of it rather disgusting but found a very yummy way to enjoy some marine collagen: chocolate and sea salt collagen balls! I mean, snacking while boosting my immune system and health at the same time? Yes please!

Spirulina
In a guacamole

One of the world’s most popular supplements, Spirulina is a tiny algae packed with nutrients and antioxidants to promote the health and wellbeing of both your body and your brain. Did you know that Aztecs were consuming it already centuries ago?
 
But again, I hear you and am not really keen either on feeding myself with algae. Well, the good news is Spirulina is most often sold as powder making it easy to mix with yummy food. You can add a small spoonful of it to a smoothie, a juice or a soup for example or sprinkle it on salads. I personally love to add mine to guacamole! It is just the easiest recipe on earth: you’ll just have to smash your avocados, add some lime, chopped cherry tomatoes and shallots, salt and pepper, chili and a small spoon of spirulina powder.
  • Boosted immunity
  • Increased endurance
  • Enhanced muscle recovery
  • Boosted energy
 
 
 
Turmeric
In a latte

A relative of ginger, this vivid yellow-orange spice is commonly found in Indian cuisine (it gives curry it’s yellow colour) and science has started to back-up what Indians has known for centuries: turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a strong antioxidant.
 
Well, I’m of course not eating curry every day so had to find another way of enjoying turmeric and found a rather delicious one: Turmeric Latte! This little thing is addictive. It’s yummy, warming and so easy to prepare if you buy a turmeric latte blend.
 
Jomeis Fine Food Turmeric Latte Blend is vegan, paleo friendly, caffeine-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and non-GMO. I love to prepare mine with almond latte, it’s so soothing (and soothing is definitely something we need at the moment).
