Can meal replacements taste delicious and work? Absolutely !!

Here we look if meal replacements taste delicious and work by looking at OGX Fenix by Organo.

OGX meal replacement shake can help and support in people losing weight and super-charging their success in 3 ways:-

– as a meal replacement

-in between meals as a health snack or

-to enhance training and recovery by using as a protein shake.

First and foremost OGX Fenix shows that meal replacements taste delicious and work. The Vanilla flavour tastes like liquid birthday cake and the  Chocolate flavour is like chocolate cake  mixture.

Inside it has 10% fibre, organic grass-fed whey protein (43%) and 23 different vitamins and minerals
PLUS the incredible Chinese superfood called Ganoderma Lucidium.

How does OGX Fenix work?

Ganoderma Lucidum is known as reishi and lingzhi. It’s a mushroom ,widely used in eastern medicine and the most studied with over 2,500 medical studies listed on PubMed.

This superfood helps the body burn calories and burn more fat ( thermogenesis ).

One of the medical studies  (PMID:27636731), discusses the 3 ways Ganoderma promotes fat loss:

a) Reduction in cravings by reducing appetite

b) Ganoderma increases metabolism, increases insulin sensitivity so the body uses less insulin and increases fat burning.

c) It changes the bugs in the gut in a way that’s favourable to reduce overall inflammation in the body and overall calorie absorption.

The Power of Protein

Protein is the building block of our bodies and is essential for optimal health. Our OGX uses  whey from grass-fed cows as the protein source.

OGX Fenix is  a high quality whey protein product with high quality vitamins and minerals and fibre.

This shake has little effect on your blood sugar. Has no nasties, no additives and preservatives except  Ganoderma.

How Can Ganaderma help Women’s Health?

How does Ganaderma help women’s health? Here we look at 6 ways it helps.

As women we often put our own health on the back burner because we look after everyone else first.

Hormones pretty much control how well we feel. They affect our mood, sleep patterns, energy, whether we can lose or gain weight or fight off disease.

When our hormones are out of balance we experience depression, anxiety, insomnia, gut issues, chronic fatigue , inflammation conditions and even cancer.

For women, hormone imbalances are becoming more and more common with poly cystic  ovaries syndrome (PCOS) endometriosis, infertility, oestrogen dominance and menopause.

Adding these mushrooms to your daily routine is such a fabulous way of boosting health. Ganaderma is in all of our products ( except skincare ) and Cordyceps and Ganaderma are both combined in Organo Red Tea.

Superfood mushrooms , are brilliant at balancing hormone levels by reducing excitation and supporting adrenal glands. During menopause the hormone levels change and cause all the different symptoms such as hot flushes , night sweats and irritability.

These mushrooms keep your internal systems stable when your body is being challenged by stress or other health issues.

Both Ganaderma and Cordyceps are useful in menopause as Ganaderma helps with hot flushes and irritability and Cordyceps keeps the serotonin ( feel good hormone) in your body for longer.

2. Boost Libido

Cordyceps herbs have been used to help with libido difficulties in men but  it is now found to also help women. Lower libido is common amongst women with hormonal imbalance, stress and fatigue.

So the Cordyceps boosts energy levels whereas  Ganaderma balances out the stress and helps to regulate the hormone imbalance- they are a powerful combination.

3. Fertility

Cordyceps has been used with couples who are in IVF therapy or struggling with infertility. This herb helps with boosting oestrogen production and involved in testosterone production too. This has improved IVF success.

Ganaderma helps to reduce the stress and emotional upheaval that infertility can produce. So both these herbs are beneficial here too.

Cup of Red Tea with Ganaderma                      and Cordyceps.

4. Pregnancy and post-pregnancy

Mother’s who take Ganaderma whilst pregnant report their births as being less complicated and their babies are calmer.

The Ganaderma boosts the immune system of the baby and the mother during pregnancy and birth. .

After pregnancy and breast feeding , Cordyceps and Ganaderma boosts the immune system again which also helps the body to heal and reduces risks of illness for your new baby.

Take your own medical advice about usage for during and post-pregnancy.

5. Breast Health

The chance of breast cancer  increases with age. Ganaderma is protective against breast and ovarian cancer  because of some its chemical components called triterpenes. It also reduces fatigue and increases effectiveness of cancer therapies.

6. Fights Candida

Even though Candida is a fungal organism, medicinal mushrooms such as Ganaderma, are the King of the funghi world and can kill off this yeast.

Can Walking Keep You Healthy?

     Walking in the park can keep you healthy.

Can walking keep you healthy? Yes it can!

Well we’re almost at the end of the month but the whole month of May has been National Walking Month! So let’a have a look at why walking is so good.

Why is Walking so Good for You?

Walking is one of the easiest ways to get fitter , according to the NHS.UK website. As little as a 10 minute brisk walk everyday can make a world of difference.

No special equipment is required,  just some comfy shoes and off you go. Its a perfect form of exercise and even better than running  for some people. Especially if you have ankle, back or knee problems. If you have a health condition it’s always good idea to seek medical advice first.

As our beverages are in individual serving sachets they are convenient to put a couple in your pocket so when you stop for a rest all you need for a tasty hot drink is hot water.

Do I have to walk every day?

All walking and activity adds up to the recommended minimum of 150 minutes of activity per week. A little bit of walking more often is better for your body than a once a week long walk but all activity is better than non.

Start slowly with a short walk and gradually build up your stamina.

How do I know if walking fast enough?

There’s an App 10 app available on App Store or Google Store which you can download and it tracks your walking goals. Also tells you if you’re not walking fast enough!

How can I stay motivated?

Easiest way to stay motivated is to make it a habit so walking becomes part of every day. If it becomes part of your routine such as walking to work , then you may need to invest in different shoes to change into once you get to work and a waterproof or backpack too.

Other ideas are listening  to music can help your walk go faster especially if you choose your favourite tracks. Change your route around so it keeps your walk varied as some days you’re walking in the town and maybe when you have more time you walk in the countryside.

If you become really keen then share your walking passion with others such as  joining a  walking group or ramblers club.

10 Top Benefits to walking:-

1.Burn calories as walking can help to burn calories and help towards weight loss or maintaining weight.

2. Strengthen the heart as walking only 30 minutes a day can reduce the chance of coronary heart disease by 19%.

3. Can help to lower blood sugar as going for a 15 minute walk after every meal was better for blood sugar than one 45 minute walk daily.

4. Eases joint pain because walking lubricates and strengthens the muscles which support the joints.

5. Boosts immunity as a study found that people who walked regularly were less likely to have seasonal flu or colds and less sick days from work.

6. Energy boost as going for a quick walk can be more effective as it increases oxygen flow to the brain.

7. Mood enhancer as walking is fantastic for your mental health. Particularly helps with anxiety, depression and generalised low mood and self esteem issues.

8. Increased life span as those who walk are more active. However,  brisk walkers tended to live longer than moderate or slower paced walkers.

9. Leg muscle toner as walking up hills or a steeper gradient on the treadmill helps to shape and condition those lower legs.

10. Creative thinking can be affected by walking too. Walking can help to release those stuck ideas and help you to come up with new ways and solutions.

How may Hot Cocoa help my mental health?

      Cup of Organo Hot Cocoa

How can drinking Hot Cocoa help your mental health?

First of all what is mental health? Many people understand it as how we think, feel, and behave.

Good mental health is the ongoing health and wellness not only the absence of a mental health condition.

Everyone can be at risk of developing a mental health condition no matter what the age, income, gender or ethnicity.

Mental health conditions including stress, anxiety and depression are three of the most common and can develop as a response to a physical illness or condition even a reaction to the ‘lockdown for COVID 19’.

Why is Organo Hot Cocoa different?

It’s not just any ordinary Hot Cocoa. This drink has helped lots of people feel better – ‘a Hug in a Mug!

Our Hot Cocoa provides a comforting warm and silky drink that can be enjoyed hot or iced for a delicious cocoa treat.

This gourmet Hot Cocoa provides cocoa infused with Ganoderma Lucidum. This mushroom shaped herb is well-known in eastern countries for its’ many health benefits.

 

How can Hot Cocoa help?

Can you create a second income from home?

My office at home.

Can you create a second income from home?

Yes, it’s true, you can create a second income from home.

The internet is full of ideas of types of companies who employ people to work from home e.g. virtual administration.

Another idea is to start a business from home and one type of business is Network Marketing.

What is Network Marketing?

Network Marketing is also known as multi-level marketing (MLM).

Someone  joins a company and sells their products or services. Often they make commission or profit on their sales and increase their commissions or profits by increasing the number of other people selling the products and services too.

Why would I join Network Marketing ?

Most people love the idea of being their own boss but most traditional businesses are costly to set up .  They require premises, or money for materials, equipment, websites, advertising etc.

In a network marketing company you get a website personalized and already built and populated with products and the company will have its own advertising strategy which you can benefit from. Many companies are encouraging and helping their distributors to use social media to build their businesses.

 

Products arrive by courier.

People love the idea of setting their own hours and even though they are not GET RICH QUICK schemes, if the hours are put in , many people have created large organisations after working hard for 3 – 5 years.

Community and being part of something bigger is another great reason to join a network marketing company. Some have team groups, team training’s , incentive trips, recognition and awards.

What if this type of business appeals to me?

If this type of business appeals to you I advise you to do your research.

  • What are their products?
  • Do you like them?
  • Ask for a sample to try.
  • Is it a fad or trendy idea which may not stick around for the long term?

Contact us if you have questions and we are happy to chat about our experience.

Why did you choose Organo?

We chose Organo as our company because:

  • First of all we loved how products tasted and how they made us feel
  • Both of us experienced health improvements after a short time of regular use
  • We couldn’t see coffee drinking becoming unpopular any time soon
  • We are part of a wonderful UK community who have team events face to face (when not in lockdown)
  • Plus virtual zoom calls and weekly training

Its a business you build alone however you are not on your own!

How Do I Maintain Good Mental Health?

What is Good Mental Health?

This is probably the best place to start because if you don’t know what good mental health is, how will you know when it’s not good.

First of all I started with a definition of what Good Mental Health is:-

“Good mental health is characterised by a person’s ability to fulfill a number of key functions and activities, including: the ability to learn. the ability to feel, express and manage a range of positive and negative emotions. the ability to form and maintain good relationships with others.”

Phew lots of words so what does it mean? OK.

What are the signs of Good Mental Health?

To answer this question, I found a kind of checklist of the 5 signs of Good Mental Health.

  1. Take care of your body
  2. Set goals
  3. Know how to relax
  4. Maintain meaningful relationships
  5. You are OK asking for help

How do I Maintain Good Mental Health?

My daily rituals are how I keep in good mental health. These rituals have changed over time as I’ve become used to them. These rituals are my non-negotiables or what I must do to ensure I have my best day.

What are my Daily Rituals?

Get up about 90 minutes before anyone else so I have the house to myself.

List what I’m grateful for in my Journal

Meditation for between 15 to 30 minutes

Read a personal development book 10 to 15 minutes

Exercise for 20 to 30 minutes. Sometimes I do fast walking or jogging in the house as I don’t like getting wet or cold! Or sometimes I follow the “Walk at Home with Leslie Sansone”. This was recommended to me about 2 years ago and totally transformed my fitness. You can see some of them on U Tube and well worth a look.

Drink a cup of King of Coffee to nourish my body and tastes delicious.

Just before bed, drink a delicious cup of Hot Cocoa to help me go to sleep quickly and stay asleep all night. Finally, I write again in my journal about what went well and what I need to practice still. Aiming to get 8 to 8 and a half hours sleep.

Do I have to have the same Rituals?

No not at all.

How do I set my own Rituals?

Make a list of everything you would like to do in the morning  or the things which make you feel really great on an ideal day . You can pick anything you want to. It may be yoga or a walk?

Once you have your list, decide what time you want to have breakfast and work backwards from there. For example if you want to get up at  8 am and have breakfast at 9 am so you have 60 minutes to fill. Put a time next to every activity you want to do and shorten or lengthen the time to fit into your 60 minutes.

Play around with different activities and times. Start noticing how you feel on the days you complete your rituals to the days when you don’t.

A great book to have a look at is The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod where he shares the power of creating new habits.

Who are Tim and Julie?

So who are Tim & Julie?

Tim and Julie Ward are partners in life, in business and in their shared mission to improve the health of 10,000 people 1 cup at a time.

Once they learned about the products and started drinking the coffees and teas about 3 years ago in March 2017.

Because they loved them so much they shared them with anyone who came to visit. Everyone who tried them loved them so they decided to join the company in June 2017.

What did you do for work before your Organo business?

Tim’s working life started as an apprentice with British Rail then later with the AA. After retraining he worked as network support manager for Primary Care NHS.

Different path for Julie, as she trained as a registered general nurse (RGN) and eventually was Managing Director of her own Nursing Agency and social care company.

How did Organo products improve your health?

A few years ago, Tim started to take two medications for high blood pressure. Even though he didn’t drink coffee, he tried the Organo Latte as he had heard other people had found it improved their health. After almost three months of drinking two cups a day,he found he no longer needed his medication. Nowadays he likes to drink Mocha and Black coffee with milk and natural sugar instead and still takes no medication.

Since a small child, Julie had suffered from asthma and hay fever symptoms. Like many she’s been prescribed lots of different types of treatment from injections to tablets to inhalers. Since drinking the King of Coffee product for around three years, she takes one inhaler occasionally and has never been fitter. She also found the coffee helped her age-related hormone fluctuations like hot flushes etc.

 

Why is helping other people improve their health, so important to you?

We have both experienced heartbreak and loss of close loved ones and  the turmoil that follows. Tim’s’ wife died in 2013 after a brave fight to an aggressive type of cancer and left him widowed with two sons. In 2005 Julie was widowed after her husband died of a heart attack and she had six children.

If we’d have known about the company or it’s products  we would have bought them.

We don’t want others to experience what our families did without at least knowing of Organo and the power of Ganaderma Lucidum /Reishi on your body.

Now, our mission is to make sure that everyone we meet knows about the Organo products and can start their own journey back to health.
