think pink

Astaxanthin is a powerfully sunprotective antioxidant that works from the outside in. Trials using supplements of 4mg of astaxanthin daily for nine weeks helped shield unprotected skin against sunburn for up to 1.5 hours, as well as improve skin roughness and texture. Made by a specific green algae, some seafood also contains astaxanthin (where creatures primarily feed on this algae). Pacific salmon is bright pink due to its higher astaxanthin content, ditto lobsters and shrimp. Flamingos’ famously pink plumage is also due to their diet high in astaxanthin-rich algae.…

perfect parsley

Sacred to the Ancient Greeks, parsley leaves have been gracing our tables for thousands of years. Today, we most commonly use this fragrant herb to add flavour to a variety of dishes, but it was originally used more often as a treatment for ailments as diverse as toothaches and hangovers. Though we’re more likely to rely on modern medicine for these conditions today, this easy-to-grow herb still has plenty of health and wellbeing benefits to offer. SIGHT SAVER Not only are the bright, verdant leaves easy on the eye, they’re good for them too. Parsley is rich in carotenoids, such as lutein, beta carotene and zeaxanthin, which are all plant compounds that can protect our eyes and promote healthy vision. Carotenoids have even been shown to help absorb blue light (from electronic…

menopause matters

There’s little point living into our autumn years if we can’t enjoy them to the full. Sadly, the odds don’t stack in favour of women: when a woman reaches 45 she has a one in five chance of falling prey to Alzheimer’s, while men of the same age have a one in ten chance. Women over 60 are twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s when compared to men, and a staggering two in three of people with Alzheimer’s are female. Sadly, it’s not just dementia that’s afflicting female brains; women are twice as likely to experience anxiety and depression, four times more likely than men to suffer with migraines and headaches, and are also more likely to develop the most common types of brain tumour. Similarly, strokes kill more women than…

pretty in pink

LATE BLOOMER For something a little different, The Real Flower Company’s Flower Tube makes for a stunning table centrepiece that doesn’t take up too much space. Begin with your hero flowers – in this case garden roses. Remove the leaves, cut the stems, then place one rose in each of the Flower Tube’s six holes. Follow with other flowers and finish with foliage, keeping all the stalks in the same direction. FRESH AND FRAGRANT Aromatic herbs really enhance a bouquet by contributing both scent and texture. Combine perfumed pink roses with herbs such as sage, mint, oregano, lavender and rosemary for an arrangement that bursts with fragrance. To keep the arrangement looking and smelling heavenly for longer, make sure the vessel you use is clean and the water is changed regularly. Flowers will…
