How do the Digital Team use Nikken Products?

So many companies talk about how amazing their products are, but do they really believe it? Do they even use them themselves? The Digital Team here at Nikken actually use many of the products, on a daily basis, at work and at home.

The PiMag Waterfall is the most used product in the office, with all of us drinking a lot more water. (Hint:  if you find yourself not drinking as much, try adding a little sugar free cordial to your glass of water). Another well used product is our beloved KenkoAir Purifier. As it sits in the corner of the office, we often hear it roaring away, flashing red to remind us that it’s still there, cleaning through the air.

Donna

Donna is our Digital Marketing and Events Manager here at Nikken, and by far the biggest user of Nikken Products. Just from listening to her daily routine, you can really see how she gets the most out of Nikken.

As Donna’s alarm sounds and the Kenkolight comes on, she wakes up feeling recharged thanks to her Nikken Sleep System. Showering with the PiMag Ultra Showerhead followed by a mini pamper with the Seisho Skin Care Range, she feels refreshed and revitalised. Not only does Donna sleep in comfort but her pets also get to enjoy their own individual Nikken PetPads. With KenkoAir in most rooms, and a regular dose of Ciaga V and Lactoferrin, she really does feel much healthier. These are just some of the items that are used on a day to day basis along with the latest jewellery, the new Kalkai Triphase Bracelet and always a Powerband.

Erin

Our Digital Marketing and Events Co-ordinator, Erin, is a Yoga Lover, who recently found that PowerChip’s were great to use as Yoga Chakras. Placing the PowerChip over the Heart Chakra and so on can be really rewarding for all you Yoginis out there. Along with this, Erin purchased a Nikken Powerband for herself, but she liked them so much that she bought one for her whole family (Hint: Powerband’s make great stocking fillers at Christmas)

Here at the Nikken Office, we have the Nikken PiMag Waterfall to hand, helping us maintain a healthy acid level. Erin drinks 2 litres a day, which means there is constant refilling with 4 of us in the office. (Hint: Do not overfill the water-fall, as it literally turns in to a real life water fall – as we experience)

Georgia

Georgia is the Digital Marketing and Events Administrator, who is now a regular user of Lactoferrin Gold 1.8. Georgia states ‘Since using these I feel generally better within myself. I’m not as tired or as run down as I used to be, and generally feel much healthier.’ Georgia is looking to move house soon, and is regularly looking through the product brochure, already planning to buy one of each product. She has planned the ultimate ‘wellbeing home!’

Mira

Mira, the office newbie, is actually fascinated with the Nikken products, and has to stop herself from wanting to purchase a lot of items. Although she hasn’t been able to use a wide range of products yet, the ones she has come in contact with have proved to do what they say, and are very impressive. She is drinking more water than she did before from our PiMag Waterfall, while she sits comfortably on her Nikken KenkoSeat. Next on her list is to invest in the PowerPatches to stop her annoying headaches, and some Kasai Multi-Vitamin and Minerals to really get her going.

Rosemary

Rosemary is our Events Assistant who has become very fond of Nikken PowerPatches.  She has full faith in these, as they always make her feel more comfortable. ‘If I hurt my wrist for example, I pop a PowerPatch on there, and within a little amount of time I feel a real difference. It is these PowerPatches that really made me believe in the science behind Nikken Products.’

Rosemary’s second favourite has to be the Kenko Mattress, although these have been replaced by the KenkoPad, Rosemary finds herself having a good comfortable sleep, sometimes not wanting to get out!

Hopefully from this you can see that we all use products for different reasons in our own personal ways. So why not use your products to suit your lifestyles and let us know your favourite products and how you use them?

Natural Solutions For Change of Life

men·o·pause/ˈmenəˌpôz/

Noun:
      1. The ceasing of menstruation.
      2. The period in a woman’s life (typically between 45 and 50 years of age) when this occurs.

Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when levels of the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone fall, also known as the “change of life”.

Hormone Replacement Therapy has been used in an effort to revamp low oestrogen levels but HRT has a dark side. Over the last 20 years studies such as the Million Women Study (UK) and Women’s Health Initiative (US) have found a significant increase in the risk of breast cancer and heart disease from HRT.

HRT isn’t the only option – Nature has provided us with many remedies like

  • Spear Mint Tea
  • Flax
  • Yams
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Cassava
  • Black Cohosh
  • Dong Quai
  • Ginkgo
  • Sage
  • Red Clover
  • Soy Products like Nutri5®

What is Nutri5®?

Nutri5® is a strawberry-flavoured instant soya shake mix which contains a unique combination of high quality soya protein, soya fibre and soya germ. The soy isoflavones in Nutri5® are quite similar in structure to human oestrogen, and as such trigger similar responses in the body.  It was developed as the result of over 20 year’s research into the benefits of soya by Dr Lars Hoie.

Given this, Nutri5® can help to alleviate the discomfort associated with menopause such as hot flushes, sweating, restlessness, and irritability.

“I am a loyal user of many Nikken products and in Spring 2009 I was introduced to Nutri5®. I am 55 years old and began suffering from night sweats and disrupted sleep, so I started taking Nutri5® twice a day. After only my 2nd week I noticed a difference! My hot sweats decreased and I slept all the way through the night until the morning. I highly recommend anyone suffering from menopausal symptoms to try Nutri5®, it has really helped me cope with the discomfort of menopause.” – Kerstin Olofsson, Sweden

Are you maintaining a Healthy Body?

“Striving to improve or maintain physical wellness is an integral part of living. Nikken’s focus is nutrition, exercise, restful sleep and freedom from discomfort, and its products are based on addressing these issues of everyday modern living.”

Over the forthcoming months we’re going to be writing 5 additional monthly blogs based on each area of Nikken’s 5 Pillars of Health philosophy. Today we’ll be starting with Healthy Body.

Your physical wellbeing is important so; Are you maintaining a healthy body? We’ve outlined a checklist of areas to take note of when looking at your personal fitness and wellbeing.

 

Nutrition and Eating Well

Are you feeling low, tired or stressed? If so, you could be running low on vital nutrients. A balanced diet helps, but alone these can be inadequate in providing your body with the level of nutrients that it really needs. Nikken’s products can provide that extra boost, in addition to a wholesome diet.

Kasai® Multi-Vitamin and Mineral for example, offers a wealth of essential minerals and vitamins – all in one tub!

A lack of Vitamin D can lead to back, leg and hip pain and, according to a recent survey, more than half of the adult population have insufficient levels of this Vitamin (Daily Mail Research, 2011).

Vitamin D is important for a healthy immune system as well as bone growth and the absorption of calcium – that is where OstoDenx® and CalDenx™ come in. Together, these food supplements are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to healthy bones and teeth!

Also, if you’re feeling a little irritable, your magnesium levels could be low. This deficiency can lead to feelings of anxiety and worry. Magnesium helps to maintain those healthy bones and gives us a boost of energy from our food. Try CalDenx™ with a diet that includes spinach, almonds and wholemeal bread; these are great sources of magnesium.

Our bodies are complex and need taking care of. Therefore there are many things to consider when thinking about our nutrition and it may not be necessary to take everything, but just to give certain problem areas a boost with nutritional supplements, in addition to a balanced and healthy diet.

Be good to your body and it’ll be good to you!

 

Exercising and Keeping Fit

We all know that it can be difficult to include more physical activity into our busy lives and sometimes we see it as a chore. However, with the right exercise plan, mental attitude and supportive fitness products, keeping fit doesn’t have to be taxing.

Every little bit of exercise counts; whether it be a quicker stroll or a day out cycling with the family, you’re helping your personal fitness, having fun and enjoying quality time with loved ones at the same time! Anything that gets your heart beat racing is benefiting your fitness levels.

In addition to exercising buddies, it is also important to find the perfect exercising equipment to motivate and support you. Having the right trainers that are kind to your feet and help keep them well ventilated will create stress-free exercise. Wouldn’t it be great if you could burn up to 20% more energy with every step you take by lining your trainers with CardioStrides®?

 

Sleeping and Relaxing

Are you someone who likes to ensure they have enough sleep every night? If so, you are someone who is making a great choice for a healthy lifestyle. Sleep is a vital part of this and it’s just as important as exercising and eating the right foods. Sleep helps us function properly and if we don’t get enough sleep, it will have adverse effects on the body.

Nikken has a variety of solutions, designed to help you de-stress, re-charge and escape the daily pressures of life. The Naturest Sleep Solution is a dream combination of products which have helped many people to improve their night’s sleep. You’ll wake up feeling refreshed, alert and ready to face the day ahead.

Winding down and relaxing at the end of the day will help you sleep better too. A back massage is an ideal way to lose any tension in your muscles; the stimulating MagCreator® will help you do just that and help you get off to sleep…Zzzz!

 

Re-energising and Rejuvenating

Do you suffer with achy bones and strained joints? Maybe magnetic technology may be something you might want to consider. It is often used to relieve joint pains, aches and strains and the use of this for health goes back centuries.

Magnetic and far-infrared technology can be found in many of our products. It may sound very scientific (which it is) but our jewellery products are a great option, creating an elegant look in addition to gaining the real health benefits of this technology.

There’s nothing more energising and refreshing as clean purified water and fresh air. These can make us feel alert, awake and full of energy. We should be drinking up to 8 glasses of water a day to avoid dehydration which makes us feel slow, headachy and tired. How much water have you had today?

Eat well, keep active, relax and re-energise for total wellness.

Bring all of these areas together and what you have is an integrated and holistic approach to your wellbeing; the perfect balance.
