If you’re into weight training, you’ll know the importance of maintaining a strong stance during a workout. A supportive shoe is essential during this training to help with good form. New Balance’s Minimus 20v7 is here to keep you feeling stable with a one piece Vibram outsole that provides the wearer with a ground feel and reliable traction so that you can keep a natural stance. The shoe also uses a nylon-infused yarn knit for protection and lateral support and a molded foam asymmetric collar for a more natural fit.
If you’re a coffee addict looking for something to help replace a cup or two throughout the day, you may find maca to be an ideal alternative. After being consumed in South America for thousands of years, ground maca root has made its way onto shelves and Matakana Superfoods has created a gelatinised powder blend of the root, ideal in smoothies, yoghurt, cereal and baking. To ensure optimum nutrient absorption, the root is pulverised during milling so that the starch bonds naturally break down. With benefits such as hormone support, improved fertility and sexual health, and increased energy and vitality, ground maca root is fast becoming a go-to for those looking to cut down on their caffeine intake.
The recent plastic bag ban has been a great initiative in reducing the amount of plastic we are using in our daily lives. Though it seems plastic is still everywhere and being used in all types of packaging. Luckily we can now cut it out of our dental hygiene routine with Grin’s new dental floss. Coming in biodegradable packaging made from cornstarch and PLA, once the floss has been used up, customers can send back the packaging back to Grin for free, where they’ll send it away for commercial composting. In addition to their environmental initiative, the Natural Mint Waxed Dental Floss is resilient to tearing and uses no artificial flavours, just natural mint.
