Indispensable for every woman

I always get super happy browsing those old herbal and plant books. Those books you can find in old dusty bookstores. And especially those written long ago with beautiful old words about the ancient medicinal properties of herbs and plants and botanical names. A few months ago - at Christmas - I received such a vintage plant and herb guide as a gift.

I flipped through and read a nice bit about Borage Oil & Black Cohosh. Borage - also called cucumber herb - originates in the countries around the Mediterranean and the oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant. According to the book, borage oil is 'indispensable for every woman' because it ensures a balanced hormone balance.

Black cohosh - its botanical name is Cimicifuga racemosa - is a plant native to North America and 'traditionally used by the Indians to treat menstruation and menopausal symptoms'. The plant used to be called 'root of the sqauw'. It is also a beautiful plant, as you can see in the picture above. 

I looked up these two precisely because they are important ingredients of Female Support. More than a year ago I started taking this supplement and I really recommend it to everyone. It's incredible what a difference it makes to me every month, it really takes the edge off those difficult days both mentally and physically. It really is as the herbal and plant guide before me put it so beautifully: indispensable for every woman.

I flipped through the booklet and came across a nice piece about Rhodiola. Rhodiola is a mountain plant that grows at an altitude of 3000 - 5500 meters above sea level. The last sentence of the epistle about Rhodiola moved me. 'Rhodiola is an energy herb that increases the resilience of body and mind so that better resistance can be offered to the extreme situation in which modern overloaded people find themselves'.

Just what I need, I thought then. The second lockdown had already started and I was feeling pretty heavy. Increasing my energy and strength was very welcome. Shortly afterwards I started taking Rhodiola and within a few weeks I felt a real change.

I can best describe it as having a bit of a tailwind. That feeling that you are on the bike with a nice sun and a nice soft, slightly pushing breeze in your back. While before that it often felt like a bicycle ride in the hail with a strong headwind.

Maybe there is something you can use this time too? The clean challenge may make you more aware of how you feel and what you might need. Or maybe a bit of tailwind is also indispensable for you?

At bbb we really have a very nice supplement line, under our own label, especially for women, in glass jars and vegetable! Good to know: this challenge is all our supplementation with a 50% discount (only for boutiques Amstel, Jordaan & Utrecht). You can place your order via info@bbbhealthboutique.nl. The supplements are then ready for you in one of the boutiques and you can pick them up at an agreed time. View all our supplementation here. Are you a member?

Good luck during the challenge!

Love,

Inge, co-founder bbb health boutique
