With the excitement of summer upon us and holidays on the agenda for many of us, we want to make sure we’re feeling our best so we can make the most of those precious days in the sun.   The last thing we want is to arrive at our destination feeling rundown or with lowered immunity that leaves us vulnerable to travel bugs.  

Here are some tips to help you feel your best when you reach your destination. 

Keep stress levels in check with adrenal support
An age old remedy for boosting energy levels and helping the body to cope with stress is a herb called Sun Eleuthero, also commonly known as Siberian ginseng. Sun Eleuthero falls into a class of herbs known as adaptogens which are known for their ability to help the body adapt to stress by supporting the adrenal glands. Our adrenal glands regulate the stress response in the body.

It’s a traditional remedy that has been used for centuries in Eastern countries to increase stamina and endurance.  Studies have shown it can even enhance libido, and it has a history of use in Asian cultures as a fertility booster.   Sun Eleuthero is the perfect supplement to keep you feeling vital and energised to get the most out of your holiday.  When combined with Sun Chlorella ‘A’ it’s the perfect combination for optimal holiday health and wellbeing. 
Support your digestive health
Sun Chlorella is a green wholefood supplement that supports immune and digestive health as well as containing a vast array of food-state nutrients. Looking after our digestive health impacts our overall health and wellbeing.  The high level of chlorophyll in Sun Chlorella ‘A’ creates a powerful detox action that mops up free-radicals and alleviates bloating and other digestive complaints such as constipation. Free-radicals can harm cells and lead to disease and accelerated ageing if not neutralised by anti-oxidants.  Through this antioxidant action, Chlorella can also support the detoxification of the liver.  Over indulging in food and drink whilst on holiday can leave us feeling bloated and our liver in need of a little support. Studies from Sapporo Medicinal University have indicated that hangovers can be prevented by to up 96% when supplementing with Chlorella.
Take care of your skin 
It’s important to protect our skin whilst in the sun so a hat and sunglasses are essential, as is wearing adequate sunscreen, limiting time in the sun and staying hydrated. We can also support our skin from the inside with nutrition. Sun Chlorella ‘A’ contains Zinc, a mineral that the body requires for the synthesis of collagen and skin repair. Beta-carotene (a precursor to vitamin A) also found in Sun Chlorella ‘A’ helps prevent ageing by acting as an antioxidant to reduce damage caused by UV light, pollution and other environmental toxins.
Start the process before you set off
To be in tip-top shape when you hit your destination it’s recommended to commence supplementation 3-4 weeks before you take off on holiday to ensure your body has had sufficient time to bolster its gut health and energy levels.
So if you’re lucky enough to be jetting off on holiday this summer make sure to start on your Sun Eleuthero and Sun Chlorella ‘A’ before you go.

Christine Baileys Sun Chlorella Spiked Seeded Crackers

Christine Baileys Sun Chlorella Spiked Seeded Crackers
If you have a dehydrator then use this instead of the oven. However they are just as delicious baked at a low temperature in the oven too. Add a handful of pumpkin or sunflower seeds for extra texture if you wish.

Makes around 24 crackers
¼ cup / 30g chia seeds (whole)
2 tbsp whole flaxseeds
6tbsp ground flaxseeds
250ml warm water
2/3 cup / 80g hemp seeds, shelled
2tbsp melted coconut oil or ghee or butter
½ tsp garlic salt
A couple of turns of Black pepper
Pinch Cumin powder
Pinch Turmeric powder
2 sachets of sun chlorella granules

Place the chia, flaxseeds and ground flaxseed in a bowl. Stir in the water and allow it to stand for 10 minutes – the mixture will thicken.  Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.

To bake in the oven preheat the oven to 250F / 120 C. Spread the mixture on to teflex sheet or baking parchment paper to form a rectangle. Gently score into small crackers with the back of a knife.  Alternatively spoon the mixture to form little round crackers. Bake in the oven for 1 hour. Flip the crackers over and bake for a further 15 minutes until they are lightly golden. Turn off the oven and allow them to sit in the oven for 30 minutes – 1 hour to dry out further.

If using a dehydrator you will need to dehydrate for 12-16 hours flipping over half way through.

These will keep in an airtight container for 1 week.
