WHAT KIKI HEALTH PRODUCTS DO WE STOCK AND WHAT ARE THEIR BENEFITS?
NATURE’S LIVING SUPERFOOD ORGANIC BLEND:
KIKI’s superfood blend is an alkalising whole food supplement designed to support your daily nutritional needs. Made from 32 plant-based ingredients, with added probiotics and enzymes, this green supplement helps the body to absorb the nutrients it needs and supports good digestive health. Perfect as a healthy seasoning alternative instead of salt, or for adding to a green juice.
Health benefits: The good bacterial cultures in this blend help you to maintain a healthy digestive system and reduces uncomfortable symptoms such as bloating, which we get post-eating or around the time of menstruation. The sea vegetables are a great source of naturally occurring vitamins, minerals and antioxidants such as calcium, iodine, iron, magnesium, potassium and vitamin B. These help us to maintain good bone, blood, and heart health, and are especially good for our thyroid function (regulating hormones) and for breastfeeding mothers.
ACTIVATED CHARCOAL POWDER:
KIKI’s activated charcoal is a made from sustainably-sourced coconuts and can be used to absorb and expel unwanted contaminants from the body. When ingested, charcoal is brilliant for gut health as it reduces bloating and wind, so add it to your drinks, desserts, and ice creams. Charcoal’s sponge-like qualities also make it a useful beauty aid in face masks, helping to clear toxins from your skin.
Health benefits: Activated charcoal is ideal for cleansing your body of any chemicals and toxins that disrupt the bodies’ natural balance of hormones. The charcoal acts like a magnet, attracting and binding any harmful chemicals, which are then expelled from your body along with the charcoal. It’s great if you already know you are suffering with a hormone imbalance, or even if you just want to ensure your natural balance isn’t disrupted, as hormonal fluctuations can effect things such as our fertility, mood, and even skin health.
ORGANIC CACAO POWDER:
KIKI’s raw, organic cacao powder is derived from Peruvian beans that are grown in mineral-rich volcanic soil. Offering a bold chocolatey flavour without any unwanted sugars and additives, it is a versatile antioxidant that can be stirred into drinks, or added to smoothies and desserts.
Health benefits: Cacao beans contain phenylethylamine, which boost the body’s natural serotonin and dopamine production – contributing to feelings of wellbeing and happiness. They are also a rich source of minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc, which help with maintaining hormonal balance, healthy ovulation, red blood cell creation, and brain, bone and heart health. Cacao beans are one of the best sources of antioxidants, as they are packed full of flavenoids, and may even reduce our risk of developing certain chronic diseases.
ORGANIC MACA POWDER:
A turnip-type vegetable also known as Peruvian ginseng, maca has many health-boosting properties. KIKI’s organic, raw maca powder is a blend of the four root varieties and offers a unique nutritional profile that is bursting with antioxidants. It has a delicious caramel taste that can be used in desserts, sauces, smoothies and juices.
Health benefits: Maca is an adaptogen, which means it helps your body adapt to stress by counteracting the negative effects it has on your endocrine and immune systems. Maca’s ability to reduce stress and anxiety has been especially noted in post-menopausal women, along with an improvement in symptoms such as hot flashes. Maca is also important for women trying to conceive as it can improve egg health and libido.
ORGANIC TURMERIC POWDER:
KIKI’s organic turmeric is sustainably-harvested and contains the naturally occurring ‘curcumin’ which is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. It is made from only the highest-quality turmeric root and packed full of vital nutrients, can be added to food and drink, and is particularly popular to blend with hot milk as a coffee-alternative.
Health benefits: Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant that helps to fight free radicals in the body, protecting our DNA. It is also a natural anti-inflammatory so can be very helpful for pain-related conditions such as PCOS, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, PMS, arthritis, and many other musculoskeletal problems. It additionally boosts immunity, so helps the body fight viruses and infections, and even has the potential to prevent Alzheimer’s, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
ORGANIC HEMP PROTEIN:
KIKI’s organic hemp is a naturally high-quality source of plant-based protein which contains essential and non-essential amino acids, fatty acids, omega 3 and dietary fibre – making it an ideal supplement for a vegan diet. It is highly digestible and blends well into smoothies or juices, and is the perfect addition to a post-workout shake.
Health benefits: Hemp seeds are a fantastic source of protein for vegetarian and vegan diets as they are rich in omega 3 and fatty acids. These fats are also great for improving dry and uncomfortable skin conditions such as eczema. Hemp seeds also contain high amounts of the amino acid arginine, which helps to lower blood pressure, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease. High in calcium, iron, potassium, vitamin E, and zinc, hemp seeds are a rich source of antioxidants and help us to maintain healthy skin, eyes, bones, kidneys and brains.
