studies, analysis of the composition of
NutriKane D and extensive literature
reviews suggest that bio-available
chromium and high antioxidant content
were important contributors to the
mode of action. ‘NutriKane D is high
in bio-available chromium, as well as
polyphenolic and flavonoid antioxidants
all of which are micronutrients that
have been shown to be important
to insulin sensitivity in all people –
particularly those living with diabetes.
These essential nutrients have also
been proposed to be important in the
maintaining optimum blood glucose
levels. The product made from safe
high quality foods and in addition to
the potential benefits to blood glucose
management has many general health
benefits,’ Dr Ball said.
Women who suffer a serious disease
fight not only to survive, but also to
sustain a feeling of normality, femininity
and dignity. For many, losing their hair
in connection with cancer treatment is
extremely confronting. Women are not
only affected mentally, they often have
specific physical issues that must also be
taken into account.
A range of headwear products from
Denmark is addressing this need.
Christine Headwear provides women
with a real choice and the opportunity
to feel beautiful during a difficult time.
The Christine range, while primarily
scarves, also includes hats, caps and
turbans for women who are affected
by illness. Swim and night caps are
new additions to the Christine range.
The Milky Way Nightcap and Comfort
Cap are made from purely organic milk
fibres, a natural product with special
qualities that is breathable, moisture
absorbing and keeps the wearer warm,
just like wool. Research has shown that
this incredible material also helps to
moisturise the scalp whilst sleeping.
Tina Madsen-Walcott, Director of
Rigon Headwear, which distributes
the Christine range in Australia said
Christine products met stringent
manufacturing criteria to protect
women using the products as a
preventive measure to protect the
skin against sun burn, cold and related
injuries or skin diseases as well as
relieving physical and mental discomfort
resulting from hair loss.
