Health drinks and tonics – what’s the fuss?
The newest trend to hit the market are multi-functional drinks. It seems there is a tonic for all aliments including your skin health and general wellbeing. But do these tonics work?
With busy lifestyles, we want an energy boost that’s quickly assimilated by our bodies. There are now multiple tonics on the market that are ultra-healthy and which contain near medicinal benefits.
More and more people are turning to ancient remedies to aid their ailments. Herbal and natural extracts have proven to have an impact on our moods, our skin health and our energy levels. These tonics can also increase mental clarity and improve sleep patterns.
Here are my top 3 tonic drinks to improve skin health and general wellbeing:
I have been drinking these tonics for a month now. The recommended program is to take one tonic a day Monday to Friday to boost your health naturally. Some of the formulations from Ion are so potent that they contain European-approved health claims. This is remarkable for a 100% natural and plant-based tonic. They contain no additives, no preservatives, no refined sugars, no caffeine and no binders. These tonics aid digestion, stimulate circulation and are abundant in anti-inflammatory properties. Since starting the tonics I have noticed a huge increase in my energy levels. My lifestyle is quite busy and I work long days. With the Ion tonics I have found I am more productive and my general wellbeing and skin health has definitely improved. They can be purchased online at www.ionherbs.com.

Image Skincare’s YANA Collagen Shots:
Image skincare have developed a daily collagen shot. This shot helps to rebuild and strengthen the skin by boosting the body’s natural collagen production. Sounds a little too good to be true? But their clinical studies have PROVEN increased skin firmness, reduction in wrinkle depth and restored hydration. The tonic is a blend of collagen peptides, ceramides, antioxidants and vitamins. For those of us concerned with skin health and open pores in particular, studies show up to 42% improvement in pore size in 30 days. Open pores are one of the biggest concerns for our clients in the clinic on a daily basis. One bottle is a month’s supply; you can shop it here: http://www.mediskin.ie/product/2030/
Apple Cider Vinegar, Honey and Cinnamon:
This is a homemade tonic, but a very simple and effective one. The key to this tonic is sourcing the highest quality ingredients to make it more potent. Choose only raw and organic sources. This tonic has a huge range of benefits. I recommend it to some of my colonic irrigation clients to help relieve constipation. It aids in speeding up the transit time of waste and helps peristalsis. It also reduces inflammation and promotes a healthier heart. It can help fight urinary tract infections protecting against bacterial, fungal or viral attack.
How do I make the tonic?
I combine two cups of apple cider vinegar, one cup of honey and two teaspoons of cinnamon in a glass bottle. Shake well. Store it in a cool dry place. Don’t put it in the fridge as it will cause the honey to harden. A shot glass portion in the morning and again at night is the perfect dose.
