Feel your best with Link Nutrition
Here at Link Nutrition, our ultimate goal is to give you the tools that you need to feel your best, come rain or shine. We know life can be busy that’s why we’ve formulated a range of targeted complexes that will have you covered from am to pm!
Life can throw curve balls, and so often we find ourselves juggling too many things, ticking off our to-do lists, trying to get from A to B. Sound familiar? We’re here to help you get the most of your mornings, avoid the post-lunch slump AND get a better night’s sleep!
Let’s start with getting the most out of your mornings!
The secret to getting the most out of your mornings, mostly lies in your nighttime routine and the quality of sleep you’ve had the night before. Yes, that’s right, you should wake up in the morning feeling refreshed, rather than exhausted! We’ve got more to come on getting the best night’s sleep later, so let’s focus on morning rituals for now. Here are some of our tried and tested tips for making the most out of your mornings...
- Get up a little earlier
- Enjoy breakfast!
- Power through the morning with our Energy + CoQ10.
We couldn’t be without our Energy + CoQ10. It’s simply the best when it comes to giving the ultimate natural energy boost! Move over caffeine we say! Take it with your breakfast and trust us, you’ll be fuelled and ready to tackle anything thrown your way.
Avoiding the post-lunch dip
Avoiding the dreaded post-lunch, 3pm dip is something that we often get asked about. Here are our top tips for beating the afternoon dip that’ll have you sailing through until 6pm feeling fabulous!
- Balance your blood sugars
This is super important, not only for avoiding the post-lunch slump but for your overall energy, mood and hormonal balance. Sticking to three meals each day that include plenty of protein, healthy fats and whole grains with lots of fruits and veggies is key here. It'll help you to feel less groggy and stop you reaching for all the caffeine come 3pm!
- Get some fresh air!
On your lunch break, get outside. Nature and fresh air are great ways to help us reset, clear our minds and give us a break from whatever we’ve been doing that day. Getting outside, even if it’s just for 15 minutes will help you to feel refreshed and energised for the afternoon ahead. Not to mention help you get some much needed vitamin D when the sun is shining!
We all know that our morning coffee tastes wonderful, but it can often be responsible for making us feel sluggish in the afternoon. It’s also a vicious cycle, as that post-lunch slump has most of us calling for more of the strong stuff that makes it difficult to sleep later that evening. Well, trust us, ditching the caffeine and switching to a herbal tea or a matcha latte will be kinder to you in the early afternoon, we promise!
Our Brain complex might just be your secret weapon when it comes to the post-lunch slump! It’s specifically formulated to help you to be at your best at a moments notice and designed to boost cognition and sharpen your focus (everything that you need at 3 pm!). Packed full with all of the brain-boosting nutrients, it’s also beneficial for supporting long-term brain health.
Getting the best night's sleep
It’s no secret that sleep plays a huge role in how we feel and perform each day. Which is why it’s important to make it a priority and allow yourself to get plenty of quality sleep. The world we now live in makes it more and more challenging to switch off, and as a result, many of us are now sacrificing both the quality and quantity of our sleep.
Here are some things that can help us to relax and drift off into a peaceful sleep. Some of our favourites include:
This can really help the brains to associate key patterns, helping us to relax and unwind when it’s time to go to sleep. Understanding the routine that works for you is the key to the best night’s sleep. Switching off devices that give off blue light at least an hour before going to sleep is a great one to get started with. Why not commit to having a no phone zone in your bedroom? Top tip: Get yourself an alarm clock so that you don’t have to rely on your phone for your morning alarm!
Having a bath before bed is a great way to wind down and relax. Not only can you add your favourite bath oils or magnesium flakes into your bath, but the warm temperature of the bath very slightly increases body temperature. When we get out of the bath, our body temperature naturally begins to lower again which helps us to drift off to sleep. This small fluctuation in temperature can help you feel more relaxed as you go to sleep.
- Try aromatherapy oils
If you’re struggling to fall asleep, then why not give aromatherapy oils a go? Aromatherapy has been used for centuries when inhaled, the scent molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain. They can also be absorbed by the skin and help to calm and relax the body before going to sleep. The scent helps to relax and calm, helping us to fall into a peaceful sleep.
Sleep well, naturally. Alongside these tips and tricks, our Night complex is the perfect partner to your nighttime routine. Specifically formulated to help you fall asleep more easily, and get good quality sleep from day 1, it’s a targeted blend of calming botanicals and soothing nutrients, topped up with lemon balm, glycine, montmorency cherry and reishi mushroom, our night blend will help you to wake up feeling refreshed and energized!
