One of the key benefits of H³O Pro™, a brand new Herbalife isotonic sports drink available from SK Nutrition, is Hydration.

The difference between H³O Pro™ in comparison to hypotonic or hypertonic sports drinks is the osmolality level which is the level at which a fluid is absorbed. H³O Pro™ gives the right osmolality level of 270 -330 Mosm/kg helping to replace loss of essential electrolytes (or salts) during strenuous exercise in your blood. Water alone has very low osmolality levels as it typically does not contain electrolytes. As little as 2% fluid can significantly harm any performance during strenuous exercise.

H³O Pro™ provides – Heat + Energy + Absorption & Antioxidant Protection + Taste = H.E.A.T

Dan Sanders, Herbalife customer, for the past six years uses Herbalife products regularly to manage his weight for sailing and recently learnt how H³O Pro™ powers his sport!

“For the whole crew sailing in the Ultra Competitive Farr 45 Class at ACC Bank Cork week this year, staying re-hydrated on the water is vital. With our supply of H3O PRO we could carry less water on the boat, rehydrate quicker, stay focused longer and in control for the long days on the racecourse. I would recommend this to anyone for Peak Performance, and the taste was great”

For the rest of August, SK Nutrition is offering free standard UK postage (usually £5) when you order two packs of H³O Pro™ at £21.45 per pack. As always, our products are all covered by a 30 day no-quibble guarantee. You can see more detailed information on H³O Pro™ here.

Q: Does dry skin cause wrinkles?
Dry skin doesn’t create wrinkles – it just makes them more noticeable. Wrinkles are the result of aging, sun damage, smoking and repetitive facial movements such as smiling, frowning or squinting. Well-hydrated skin decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin. The better hydrated your skin is, the firmer and smoother it appears.

The Herbalife NouriFusion Multivitamin Normal to Dry System is perfect for dry skin. The Skin Activator anti-aging line is excellent in combating fine lines and wrinkles.

Q: Do all sunscreens with SPF 15 prevent wrinkles?
Products containing sunscreens with UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum protection help prevent sunburn and wrinkles. All of Herbalife’s SPF products contain both UVA /UVB protection. It’s the UVA protection that shields the skin from the damaging rays of the sun that age the skin.

Herbalife’s NouriFusion and Skin Activator facial moisturizers contain Parsol 1789†, a revolutionary UVA sunscreen that protects the skin from both the long and short UVA rays of the sun. This same ingredient is found in the Radiant C Body Lotion with SPF 15 for all-over, daily protection.

Q: What is Glucosamine and does it help reduce the appearance of wrinkles?
The entire Skin Activator line is formulated with a unique, gentle, non-acid Glucosamine Complex, which helps enhance collagen production, aid hydration, repair weak and damaged skin cells and firm skin.

Independent clinical studies on the UGL Glucosamine Complex in Skin Activator show a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by as much as 57% after just 3 months!*¹

If you’d like to see how the Herbalife Outer Nutrition range can help the appearance of your skin, please contact us for more information or you can just TRY some of our products for yourself!

Every day, water leaves your body at an alarming rate!

  • An average person loses 3-6 litres of water per day.
  • An active person can lose 1-2 litres of water per hour when exercising.

The human body can only consume so much water at one time!

  • Electrolytes such as sodium and potassium help the body to absorb more fluids.
  • Carbohydrates work together with sodium to accelerate the rate at which water is absorbed by the body.

Regular readers will know that I am almost obsessive about the importance of hydration, and so I am particularly delighted to announce a new Herbalife product that will be available in Europe next few weeks from the SK Nutrition online store! (H30 is already available in the USA and can be ordered here!)

Spare Tyre??

As someone who loves travelling to different places, taking it easy and sampling plenty of local food and wine, I can relate to those who find it a challenge to maintain their weight while they are on holiday. This can be particularly difficult for people who have been exercising and eating sensibly in the run up to their trip and then find themselves in an all-inclusive resort, or with a group of friends who generally eat and drink a lot more than they do!

Having just returned from a holiday in Portugal without putting on weight, I thought I’d share the ” four simple rules” that I follow to avoid gaining weight when travelling… (more…)

In the current heat, or if you are going on holiday, it is especially important that you pay attention to the amount of water you are drinking each day. I have written about the health benefits of correct hydration a number of times – here are some reminders for you:

  • Hydration in the human body is paramount to our health and our energy level is greatly impacted by the amount of water that we drink. As little as a 5% drop in body fluids will cause a 25-30% loss of energy in most people. Proper hydration maintains healthy bodily function and prevents fatigue. (more…)
