Womens Best Supplements

Good afternoon lovely people 🙂

Hope you are all well – its afternoon here in Sydney, Australia.

I have some great news, I purchased some fitness supplements from Womens Best & I am so excited to talk about these 🙂

I purchased:

  • Slim Body Shake
    • It easily activates your metabolism, maximizes your fat burning, and improves muscle building all at once! It also serves as a perfect energy boost, just like a complete meal. And with only 200 calories per shake, it still allows you to visibly reduce weight!
  • Whey Protein
    • The right amount of protein is essential for muscular growth and maintenance. Whey Protein supplies a well-balanced combination of ingredients, supporting your workout and diet at the best possible rate. Essential amino acids help you to recover after a hard workout, maintain muscle mass and support your diet in the most delicious way.
  • BCAA Amino
    • Well known as BCAA (Branched-Chain Amino Acids) stands in summary for the amino acids leucine, valine and isoleucine. Being a special part of proteins, they are involved directly in building muscle mass. They are extremely important for great results after workout. They belong to the essential amino acids, which the human body is unable to produce itself.
  • Creatine
    • If you stock up your creatine stores, this white gold is proven to improve your performance, strength and endurance. A true all-in-one support for your muscle growth.
  • Cookie & Cream Cookies (I just wanted to treat myself)
    • Loaded with 37 grams of protein per 100 grams, this snack will contribute to your muscle growth and is an overall easy way of protein intake.

I got an email yesterday that they have sent my parcels – I AM SOOO EXCITED!

This is just too much! With Hamilton Island 58 days around the corner, I am so excited to start adding these supplements into my daily routine 🙂

Will def let you know how I go when my parcels arrive, wooooooo 🙂

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

What Happens To Your Body When You Sleep

By now, I’m sure many of you KNOW that sleep is really important for your health. There’s a reason you feel much more refreshed after a good night’s sleep — it affects how you feel, how you look and your ability to perform. But have you ever wondered what actually happens to your body while you are asleep? Get ready to find out!

Your body temperature drops
Your body temperature contributes to the regulation of your circadian rhythm (your body clock), which helps determine when it’s time to sleep and time to be awake. Just before you fall asleep, your core body temperature starts to decrease, making it easier to drift off. A higher core body temperature can make it difficult to fall asleep, which is why many sleep experts recommend you don’t keep your bedroom temperature too high.

Your brain tidies up
During REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep, the stage when you have dreams, your brain continues to be highly active. Part of the brain, known as the cerebral cortex, starts to filter through the information you have taken in during the day, organising thoughts and storing important information and memories. Think of sleeping as your brain’s ‘reset’ time. It tidies up all of the information you’ve been exposed to during the day and makes room for what you’ll learn tomorrow!

 

Your body releases growth hormones
 When you’re sleeping, your body gets to work repairing itself. As you move into the deepest stage of sleep, your body releases hormones, including growth hormones. These hormones help to repair your muscles and tissue. The blood supply to your muscles increases at this time too, giving them the nourishment they need to grow. Your muscles also naturally relax, which may help to relieve general tension that builds up during the day.
Your heart rate slows 
When you go to bed, your heart doesn’t need to work as hard, so your heart rate is generally a bit slower. As you drift off to sleep, your heart rate continues to get progressively slower and your blood pressure also decreases.Your heart and vascular system both enjoy a bit of a rest period during sleep, the result of your body entering a state of relaxation. It has been suggested this is why a lack of sleep can lead to blood pressure and heart concerns.

Your skin repairs itself
It’s not just your muscles that repair themselves during sleep. While you are catching some ZZZZs, the growth hormone your body releases gets to work regenerating skin cells and repairing the skin from daily exposure to the sun and general pollution. During sleep, water accumulates under the skin, making it look plump and smooth.

Your body also works to balance your hydration level as you sleep. That’s just another reason why you should carry your water bottle everywhere and re-hydrate during the day!

While you are sleeping, your body is pretty hard at work, making sure you are ready to greet tomorrow feeling refreshed!

Hopefully this blog has helped you to understand why building good habits around sleep is so important.

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤
