How do you stay fit and healthy?
I have always kept active and eaten a healthy, balanced diet. I also include key supplements, to take extra care of my body and health. I started playing golf 20 years ago, when my sister married a keen golfer – and I loved it as soon as I started! Golf has a great social element, and you can meet and play with so many different people from all walks of life. Plus, it’s a game that can take you around Australia and the whole world, to so many glorious places. Sometimes, when I can find a window of time, I often just love to walk and play alone. Each shot is different, and each day brings something new.
What made you interested in working with Natural Life™?
While travelling in Europe, I noticed propolis products were available just everywhere. Back then, I didn’t know much about this stuff that bees made, but then I had the pleasure of learning about how it supports healthy immune system function. More recently, I was made aware of Natural Life™, an Australian brand supplying the very same propolis, and I jumped at the opportunity to support them.
What is your favourite product?
I absolutely love Natural Life™ Propolis & Manuka Spray, which contains propolis, manuka and peppermint oil. I have been told that propolis is traditionally used in Western herbal medicine to relieve symptoms of sore throat. In my work, I need to ensure that my voice is not impaired, and we all know how travel can really damage our immune health, especially during winter. Natural Life™ Propolis & Manuka Spray is an absolute staple piece in my handbag for use when required.
Are there other products you take?
Manuka Honey is another favourite, with wonderful antioxidant properties. People use it with cereal, yoghurt and smoothies, but my favourite is just straight off the spoon – delicious! I hear it’s also great for soothing dry skin when applied directly. The folks at Natural Life™ have a wonderful network of hardworking Australian beekeepers who only practise sustainable methods. They look after the bees, so the bees can look after us!
What is Manuka honey?
Manuka honey is produced by bees that pollinate the Manuka bush in Australia and New Zealand. When bees pollinate from the Manuka bush, they produce honey that is more potent than standard honey, with more methylglyoxal (MGO). MGO is found in the nectar of Manuka plants, and its levels are used to measure Manuka honey potency. While most honey contains this compound, Manuka honey contains it in higher concentrations. Natural Life™ offers various strengths of Manuka honey - the higher your MGO number, the more potent the honey will be.
What is propolis?
Propolis is popular in Europe and Asia for its health benefits and is now attracting attention in Australia. It is an antiseptic resinous substance from plants, collected by bees and then used in the beehive to create structure, regulate heat, and protect against predators. Propolis has been traditionally used in naturopathic and Western herbal medicine to soothe and relieve mouth irritation, sore throat, pharyngitis and mouth ulcers. An antioxidant, propolis also supports healthy immune system function, by reducing the formation of inflammatory free radicals. Scientific research is not only confirming these traditional uses of propolis, but also discovering many other exciting potential health benefits.
Why is propolis therapeutic?
Studies show that propolis initiates its potent therapeutic effects via its unique composition - it contains resin, wax, essential oils, pollen, and potent organic compounds called flavonoids, including quercetin, acacetin, rutin, luteolin, apigenin, and naringenin, just to name a few.
Is all propolis the same?
No. Its constituents vary depending on the area of origin. It is important to ensure that the propolis you select contains a certain composition of flavonoids and other compounds to ensure its therapeutic efficacy. Australian-made Natural Life™ ensures that each product containing propolis is batch-tested to contain a minimum of eight percent quercetin, along with particular compositions of other important flavonoids, so that each product is therapeutically potent.
