Nikken’s Sporting Support…

JT Banner

Nikken’s Rest and Relaxation products are designed to conveniently fit into your everyday daily life.

Nikken’s magnetic technologies have developed over the past 37 years to provide a supportive environment for our bodies and to help restore balance and relaxation.

While the Nikken Sleep products are designed to support in the body’s natural recovery process each night, the magnetic applications featured within the rest of the Rest and Relaxation category are designed to continue the support throughout the rest of the day and evening, including activities such as sport.

At Nikken we’re proud to have athlete Jack Turner’s endorsements for some of the Rest and Relaxation products and the PiMag®Water Bottle, which he used during his recent global athletic achievements…

Introducing – Jack Turner
English Schools under-20 Decathlon National Champion – 2018
All time British No.1 under-18 Decathlete – 2018
Qualified & selected for ‘Team GB’ under-18 European Championships in Hungary – 2018
English Schools under-17 Octathlon Champion – 2017
England Silver Medalist at Home International Pentathlon -2017
British under-17 outdoor High Jump Silver Medalist – 2017

At just 16 years old Jack Turner became the English Schools under-17 2017 Octathlon champion when he won Gold in Boston, UK.  Jack went on to represent England at the Schools International Athletics Board (SIAB) Home Internationals in Glasgow, Scotland where he won Silver for the indoor Pentathlon.

This year, Jack has competed in his first ever Decathlon at the Somerset County Championships. He then went on to compete in the National Championships winning the under-18 British Standards competition, exceeding the European entry standard. This led to him being selected for Team GB to represent Great Britain at the European Championships in Hungary.  It was at this prestigious competition that Jack set a new British Record. A few months later he went on to compete in his first under-20 Decathlon and achieved the gold medal and another national title.  At the end of the 2018 outdoor season Jack is ranked 6th in Europe, 6th in the world for under-18 Decathlon and 4th in the UK for under-20s Decathlon. He’s aiming high for the championships next year!

Jack often uses Nikken products when competing in athletics around the world.  We asked Jack to share some of his experiences using the Nikken products:

“I found the KenkoTherm® Support Wrap for the knee really supportive, especially since I hyper extended my knee last year long jumping. Wearing it helps me both physically and mentally.  The tight and comfortable fit meant that for a long period of time I couldn’t compete without it on.

The Kenko MagDuo® I found myself using a lot. In preparation for Europeans I would use it on small muscles and joints for some release.

I used the Nikken KenkoTouch® on my inflamed tendon, that I picked up during a decathlon, days before another competition. I used it at night just before I went to bed and felt that it really helped overnight and I performed well the following day.

I have a Nikken PiMag® Waterfall Gravity System at home, so to be able to carry around a filtered water bottle in the PiMag®Water Bottle, with me when I compete was reassuring, especially when competing abroad.”

Other items in the Rest and Relaxation range include Nikken sleep products, magnetic insoles, mini magnets, magnets for massage, supporting wraps and tape, jewellery and seat pad.  Plus, benefit from the Sleep Pack and Energy Pack, saving an instant 10%.

The value of water…

Facebook banner Blog launch - ENG

Whilst planet Earth is primarily covered in water, only 3% of it is fresh! Yet this 3% provides the worlds drinking water and delivers food through fishing and crop irrigation, along with many other key functions. The world’s water supply is a major concern and it’s not just plants and animals that are at risk.  Issues of water scarcity and poor water quality could have serious social and economic consequences too.1

Rethink plastic…

Rethink plastic banner 9th April

Single-use plastics are a human addiction that we must face head on. Plastic pollution is not only impacting our waters and marine life, but also the human food chain and our overall health.  Once in our oceans, plastic litter affects the safety of sea transport, fisheries, tourism and recreation. When broken into tiny pieces, plastic attracts toxic chemicals released over decades from industry and agriculture, the concentration of which increases as they move up the food chain.

Here are some facts from the Plastic Oceans Foundation1, an organisation founded with the aim to raise awareness of the growing ocean plastic pollution issue:

Fact 1. More than 8 milliontons of plastic is dumped into our oceans every year.

Fact 2. One in threespecies of marine mammals have been found entangled in ‘marine litter’.

Fact 3. Over 90%of all seabirds have plastic pieces in their stomachs.

These facts are overwhelming!

Every minute, the equivalent of a rubbish truck load of plastic goes into our oceans, it never decomposes and will remain there forever. If nothing changes, it is believed that by 2050 all the plastic in the ocean could weigh more than all the fish. Our oceans health affects us all so we need to come together to take action and protect our oceans. You may already have acted on reducing your plastic bag usage, however, there is another issue in the plastic-trash situation that needs tackling. According to Forbes, people buy a staggering one million plastic bottles per minute around the world.

Plastic bottles contain Bisphenol A (BPA), the chemical used to make the plastic hard and clear. BPA is an endocrine disruptor, which has been proven to be hazardous to human health. Plastic bottles are also made from a petroleum product known as polyethylene terephthalate (PET).  Both require huge amounts of fossil fuels to both make and transport them.

With at least 8 MILLION TONS of plastic waste entering our oceans every year, this issue isn’t going away anytime soon. We can we do our bit by rethinking our consumption of single-use plastics.

The reusable Nikken PiMag® Bottleis made from BPA free resin and it is fully biodegradable, breaking down into natural biomass that contributes to the soil’s nutrients. You can carry filtered PiMag® Water with you wherever you go.  Containing Nikken PiMag® Water Technology, the filter in the Nikken PiMag® Bottle, adjust the water’s pH value to an alkaline level of 8.5 – 9.5. The filter lasts for an estimated 250 refills. The cost is approximately half the price per litre of buying bottled water, saving you money too!

We must REDUCE. Think of our sea life and buy fewer plastic products in general, particularly when you know that you are unable to recycle them.

6 Health Trends for 2018

Health Trends blog

As we approach the end of 2017, it is the perfect time to assess some of the up-coming health trends for 2018.

  1. Less sugar consumption. A recent survey found that 12% fewer adults and 19% fewer children have a sugary beverage like soda or juice on any given day compared to data from 2003.1 Nikken uses stevia as a natural sweetener in KVB®Natural Food Mix and in Kenzen Ten4® Matcha Green Tea Drink; as this herb does not contain any calories but has a naturally very sweet taste. Find out more information about stevia in our blog ‘Swapping Sugar for Stevia is a sweet choice’.
  2. Matcha Tea. The powdered tea dates back to the 10th century, when Zen Buddhists thought that the tea brought them a sense of clarity, energy and a feeling of wellbeing. Kenzen Ten4®Matcha Green Tea Drink is made with the highest quality of organic matcha tea leaves; launched in 2014 ahead of the trend.  Kenzen Ten4® is made with USDA certified organic ingredients, contains no added sugar and is only 8 calories per serving (4 calories per 100ml). Matcha Green Tea is known as “nature’s own energy drink” while New Zealand Kiwi also included in this drink, is known to be one of the most nutrient-dense of the super-fruits.
  3. Increase in water intake. People are learning to drink more water to stay hydrated throughout the day. Dehydration may cause dizziness and headaches. To help increase water consumption, you can stir in lemon, orange or add Ciaga®ᵛ for a flavour boost, and try to drink a whole glass of water at each meal. For fresh filtered water at home, try PiMag Waterfall® Gravity Water System.
  4. Flexitarian diet. 2 The focus is on incorporating more plant-based food into the diet without completely forgoing meat. Gradually replace some meat and seafood with vegetable proteins. With KVB®Natural Food Mix and the Everyday Weight Management programme, it’s easy to focus on a plant-based diet that includes some lean meat.
  5. Temperature regulating fabric. Nikken incorporates ceramic-reflective fibers in our sleep products and support wraps to help release heat and maintain a comfortable temperature.
  6. “Smart” beds and pillows to help you sleep better. The Kenko Sleep system offers improved support for the musculoskeletal system, improved temperature control and additional enhancements in comfort that may contribute to quality sleep.

Good reasons to drink water

Water week blog heading

27th August – 1st September 2017 is World Water Week in Stockholm, the annual focal point for the Globe’s water issues. The theme this year is ‘Water and Waste: Reduce and reuse’. The majority of us will be guilty of wasting water on a daily basis whether it be leaving the tap running as we brush our teeth or letting the water run for a few minutes before having a drink so that it is running cold!

To coincide with this week, we are focussing on water too and have chosen to publish the following blog written by one of our Independent Consultants highlighting some of the benefits of Nikken’s PiMag® water technology.

14 Good Reasons to Drink Nikken Water

by Jon Edgell, Independent Nikken Consultant

 It is now well known and accepted that the amount of water you consume everyday plays an important role in maintaining a healthy body – experts recommend drinking 8 to 10 glasses (about 2 litres) of water each day to maintain good health.

But not all water is equal so what water should we drink? Is tap water too full of contaminants? Is bottled or mineral water a better alternative? Or should I invest in a home water filtration system, and if so, which type?

Japanese wellness company Nikken’s water filter system takes its inspiration from the fresh streams of Japan, where the benefits of mineral rich, alkaline spring water have been known for centuries. This is the idea behind the Nikken Pimag® Waterfall Gravity Water System which seeks to recreate pure natural spring water in your home at an economical cost.

Read on to discover 14 good reasons why we think Nikken water should be your drinking water of choice:

  1. Nikken Pimag® water is particularly efficient at hydrating you, 75% of us are typically dehydrated.
  2. Nikken Pimag® water is energised, structured and conditioned by a unique filtering and magnetic system.
  3. The Nikken Pimag® water may help activate your thirst mechanism, which is normally suppressed or misinterpreted (often as hunger). The more Nikken Pimag® water you drink the more you want! This further helps to rehydrate you quickly. Try it!
  4. This encouragement to drink more and more water will not only rehydrate you, it will fill you up and satisfy your “hunger” thus being very useful as part of a weight management diet.
  5. The water is alkaline with a PH of approx. 8-9 (most bottled water is acidic – less than ph7, and most tap water is PH neutral, around ph7). Alkaline water may help contribute towards better body balance by counteracting the increased acidity of our modern diet.
  6. The all-in-one multi-stage filter helps remove contaminates typically present in tap water – these include heavy metals, pesticides, and chlorine.
  7. Most alternative filtration systems take out the good minerals as well as the bad leaving pure, clean, but “dead” water. The Nikken system adds back essential minerals including magnesium, potassium, calcium, manganese and sodium.
  8. The PiMag® Waterfall is environmentally responsible. It is manufactured using recyclable biodegradable materials, including a polymer that contains no bisphenols or phthalates and does not leach chemicals into water.
  9. The Nikken Pimag® Waterfall system is a countertop model – no plumbing is required and the system is quick and easy to use straight out of the box, with a small work surface footprint. It is therefore, also relatively portable and can be moved around the kitchen, house or office, or even taken on holiday.
  10. The Nikken Pimag® Waterfall is a gravity fed system with good flow rates. The system’s 5-litre tank will refill in a matter of minutes.
  11. The system has very good filter replacement rates – the filter will last for 900 litres (for a family of 4 using the system for all their drinking and cooking needs this will usually translate to about 3 months).
  12. The Nikken PiMag® water systems use BPA-free non-leaching biodegradable plastics.
  13. Nikken Pimag® water can also be obtained from any tap when you are out and about via the Nikken Pimag® Water Bottle – excellent for travel, reducing the need to buy bottled water which creates waste.
  14. And last and by all means not least the water tastes great!

Last Chance – Receive a FREE replacement filter with every PiMag® Waterfall Gravity System (1380) ordered between 12th June and the 31st August 2017.

The filter in the PiMag® Waterfall Gravity System is at its optimum for approximately three months. It should then be replaced to continue to create fresh PiMag® water.

For PiMag® water on the move try the PiMag® Water Bottle (1375), ideal for taking on holiday to enjoy that fresh filtered water taste (from any safe water tap) wherever you are!
