A Guide to Mastering Men’s Nutrition


There’s so much more to good men’s health and nutrition than diet. No matter how balanced your diet is, you may still be missing out on a few key vitamins and nutrients. Men’s health requires a considered approach, and implementing a few natural supplements into your daily routine can help to boost your nutrition and boost your overall health.

While diet and exercise are incredibly important, there’s no harm in upping the ante in the nutrition stakes where possible- particularly for men. Read on for our tips on how to master men’s nutrition the natural way.

Why is fueling the body so important for men’s health?

Men’s and women’s nutritional needs are different- nutrition isn’t “one size fits all,” so it’s important to look at your own needs and listen to your body, then work from there to achieve optimum nutrition.

If men don’t fuel their bodies and deliver it the right mix of vitamins and nutrients, they can increase their risk of chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and mental health issues like anxiety and depression.1 Men’s nutrition guides recommend limiting your intake of saturated fats and filling your day with fruit, vegetables, wholegrains, lean meats and sources of calcium is important, but there’s no such thing as a “perfect” diet and we can’t be expected to get it right every single day. This is where men’s dietary supplements come in. A daily “inner health” routine can ensure you’re getting the right amount of essential vitamins each day, working to boost your health and nutrition on top of your diet.

The best dietary supplements for men

A great multi-tasking multivitamin for men is the Herbs of Gold Men’s Multi Plus. A bit of a supplement all-rounder, this vegan-friendly tablet contains 24 important vitamins and minerals, plus herbs, to support men’s health, including folate and B12 for brain function, vitamins C & E, Zinc and Selenium for immunity and to reduce free radical damage, and vitamin D for bone strength.

Herbs of gold

For men who want to prevent physical signs of ageing like cell damage and inflammation and want to boost the body’s antioxidant defences, natural antioxidant production processes and support digestive, lung and bronchial health, we recommend the SuperFeast Medicinal Mushrooms- Tremella.

Superfeast

The Tremella mushroom has been used for thousands of years by Oriental noble men and women as a tonic which they believed to preserve beauty and youth, and this supplement can be easily stirred into hot drinks, broths and even full meals. Men over 50 will benefit from the Whole Earth & Sea Men’s 50+ Multivitamin, which contains vitamin and mineral complexes specifically selected for their importance in the health of men over 50. This multivitamin contains Calcium and Magnesium, vitamin D3 and K2, Folate, B vitamins, selenium, vitamin C, saw palmetto extract, enzymes and antioxidants for health, energy and vitality.

Whole Earth & Sea

If you’re a particularly active man (or are shopping for one), we recommend the Unichi Zinc Plus Oyster supplement. This supplementary sports food for men contains Zinc, Vitamin D3 and Pacific Oyster powder to help maintain healthy testosterone levels in men, healthy immune function and muscle growth and performance.

A guide to the very best pregnancy gifts


Pregnancy is nothing short of a whirlwind, and it can be easy to forget about your own needs during your first nine months of really caring for someone else- the beautiful bub growing inside of you! Is there an expectant mother in your life?

Now is the time to remind her that her own needs matter too. When you’re shopping for pregnancy gifts (for first-time mums or otherwise!) it’s important to choose products that are guaranteed to be both safe and useful during and after pregnancy.

To make shopping for mums-to-be that bit easier, we’ve collated a list of the very best pregnancy gifts- all of which are safe, natural, and encourage a bit of self-care. Explore our pregnancy gift boxes, specially curated for the ultimate pampering session, and more of our favourite pregnancy-safe products below.

Our Favourite Pregnancy Self Care Gift Sets

A gift set is always a welcome early pregnancy gift, as the recipient will find herself with a number of carefully selected gifts that she can incorporate into a self-care ritual or use individually! We love the Nourished Life Pregnancy Care Package, which contains three Nourished Life bestsellers that we know mums-to-be will love- the Pukka Tea – Motherkind Pregnancy, a tea rich in sustainably sourced, supportive herbs traditionally used during pregnancy, the Weleda Stretch Mark Massage Oil, which can be used every day from early pregnancy, and an Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses® Soothing Body Lotion to help boost cell regeneration and improve the skin barrier function to restore a soft, smooth and healthy-looking glow.

Andalou

If you’re looking for a seriously indulgent self-care gift for a first time mum, we recommend the Nourished Life Pregnancy Self Care Essentials Pack, which includes the aforementioned Pukka Tea – Motherkind Pregnancy plus a Crop Natural Hydrating Aloe Vera Mask, a two-pack of KOOSHOO Organic Scrunchies, a bottle of Earth Mumma Organic Mumma To Be Belly Oil, the iconic Weleda Skin Food Light and Dr Bronner’s Pure-Castile Liquid Soap in soothing lavender.

Pukka

More of the Best Natural Pregnancy Gifts

We firmly believe that the best pregnancy gifts are those that strike a balance between practicality and pampering- and are, of course, safe and natural! Mums to be will love Willow By The Sea, a New South Wales based husband and wife team creating 100% Certified Organic baby and pregnancy products using the highest quality botanicals, oils, and waxes. For mums to be, we recommend the Willow By The Sea Belly Oil, a nourishing blend of omega-rich organic oils that penetrates into the deeper layers of skin to help relieve itching, combat stretch marks, and calm inflammation during pregnancy, and the Willow By The Sea Belly Butter, a concentrated formula designed to lock in moisture and support the elasticity of the skin as at stretches during pregnancy. A long-time favourite amongst the Nourished Life community is the Weleda Stretch Mark Massage Oil, which has been dermatologically tested and specifically developed to help protect against the formation of stretch marks on the stomach, bottom, thighs and breasts through regular massage. Another luxe, a natural gift that mums-to-be will love is the Madara Infusion Vert Body Antioxidant Firming Oil. This aromatic vitamin-infused body oil firms, tones and improves the skin’s elasticity through a natural, vegan blend of rejuvenating lemon balm and uplifting thyme.

Pai’s The Gemini Stretch Mark Dual-System is a truly luxe pregnancy gift and was originally formulated for Natalie Portman! Rather than a one-step oil, this system begins with a hydrating cream applied in the morning to drive moisture into the skin, while an evening application of a replenishing oil works to nourish the skin and keep it supple and healthy.

A pregnancy skincare routine shouldn’t begin and end with moisturiser – cleansing the skin is just as important! Gift the expectant mother in your life with Skin Juice Mummy’s Tummy Organic Body Wash, which is rich in essential fatty acids to promote skin elasticity and moisture absorption, cleansing the skin without stripping it of its natural oils.
