The future of face masks
Over the last couple of years we’ve all become used to wearing face masks.
But whether you’re a fan of disposable masks or reusable ones, we can all agree there’s room for improvement!
Enter XULA, the next generation of independently tested, certified and approved see-through face masks.
Not only have they been designed to fit beautifully to all types of facial features, the light and comfortable transparent fabric filters particles like microorganisms and viruses, while offering high breathability.
XULA masks are also coated with HEIQ Viroblock which kills 99.9% of viruses including COVID-19 and they’re re-washable up to 40 times, so are much more eco-friendly than other types of mask.
These clever see through masks also make it easier to communicate while wearing them, protect against excessive heat build-up which can lead to poor skin conditions and exacerbate issues like panic attacks, anxiety and discomfort. They are ideal for #forgottendemographic – deaf, hard of hearing, autistic, and mental health communities.
And anyone who finds that wearing a mask fogs up their glasses will no longer have to worry about that particular problem!
Plus, with a percentage of every mask sold in the UK going to Mencap, the UK’s largest learning disability charity, you know you’ll be helping others too.

Feel energised from within
Winter can really take its toll, so it’s important to nourish our bodies with all the nutrients and immunity support we need, ensuring we stay healthy and energised for the months ahead.
And one of the most important minerals we need is iron. It’s an essential element for blood production, as well as supporting many other bodily functions.
As the body doesn’t produce iron naturally we need to make sure we’re getting sufficient levels of it from the food we eat. Many of us don’t get enough from our diet alone, however, so an iron supplement can help to top up our levels.
And that’s where Spatone® comes in.
The UK’s number one naturally sourced Iron rich water*, is a natural liquid iron supplement that comes from the ancient Trefriw Wells Spa in Snowdonia National Park, North Wales.
Its liquid format means it’s more easily absorbed than other iron supplements and the iron in Spatone® helps to release energy and maintain a healthy immune system**.
It’s available in two variants; Spatone® Original natural iron-rich water and Spatone® Apple with Vitamin C. Both are suitable for vegans and vegetarians, as well as for all the family (aged two and over), including pregnant women***.
Spatone® is gentle on the stomach, easily absorbed and convenient to use thanks to its single-use sachets, ideal for taking on-the-go.
So why not give your energy levels a boost and try Spatone® this winter?

*IRI Value Sales 52 weeks w/e 30 October 2021 | [email protected]
**EFSA Health Claim Register
***Spatone® is good for maintaining healthy iron levels not a treatment for iron deficiency and anaemia. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. If pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your doctor or midwife before taking a supplement.
It’s never too late to thrive
The beginning of a new year is a great time to try something new, whether that’s upping your exercise game or learning a language.
And for many of us, this is the time of year when we kickstart a healthier lifestyle, so it’s no wonder Veganuary has become such a phenomenon over the last few years.
Although we may be halfway through January, it’s never too late to give plant-based food a try. Many who have embraced veganism, including a growing number of the world’s best athletes, regret they didn’t do it earlier, as being plant-powered makes them feel happier, healthier and stronger.
And one big proponent of plant-based eating is supreme master Ching Hai, a world-renowned artist, humanitarian and spiritual teacher.
She advocates that a plant-based lifestyle won’t just help you survive but will see you thrive! And of course, vegan diets have been shown to have many environmental benefits, as well as being kind to our lovely animal friends and in many cases is a great way to save money on the weekly food shop!
If you need some inspiration for recipes and delicious vegan meals then take a look at Supreme Master Television’s website, where you’ll find plenty of ideas to get you going.
