Great product does what it says, however need to make in capsule form for easy transport when on holiday away from home

Menopause Bundle

Loving the products, particularly the Brain Booster which has really helped clear the brain fog and the Latte Liberate which makes for a nice breakfast smoothie and I’ve not experienced any hot flushes or night sweats since taking this. I was grateful for the first few nights of deep sleep after taking the Spiced Halo but alas it didn’t last and doesn’t dissolve well. I have felt no difference at all with the Bitter Melon. Overall I love the products and will re-purchase the Brain Booster regularly.

Great product

It is a great product. I was surprised to see the 1 star review - it should be removed because that person didnt try it or bother to read the "how to use" before purchasing, so that review does not represent the product.

Glad you're loving the Bitter Melon! We like to be transparent with our reviews and that's why we have left the other one there, but you're right, they didn't try the product as they couldn't use it. Thanks for leaving a review that helps everyone decide if this is the right product for them :)

Latte Liberate

This is one product i can't do without. Sometimes you wonder if these things work or not. Well let me tell you, I went away for nine days, (didn't think 9 days would be a problem) boy was I wrong. To avoid running out i will subscribe. One less thing to worry about, in my busy life

So happy to hear that our Latte Liberate is working for you! Definitely set up a subscription as you'll never run out and you can edit your subscription at any time - PLUS you also save money! Win, Win :)

Amazing

I bought the Hormone and gut starter pack and I’ve only been using it for around 3 weeks and I can feel a difference. I going to the toilet a whole lot better. I feel more energised. The taste is great too.

Stress is becoming a worldwide epidemic

Stress is becoming a worldwide epidemic | kulture.store

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared what we have known all along, that Stress is the “health epidemic of the 21st century”. It affects everybody and is not confined to any gender, occupation, race, or age. It can have detrimental results if left unmanaged. There are a great number of health and wellness products and practices that are mainly devoted to managing stress since it is a very real and verycostly epidemic. In Australia alone ““Sick workers dragging themselves into the office are costing the Australian economy more than $34 billion a year[1].”

What is stress

The Merriam - Webster dictionary defines stress as: a state resulting from a stress; especially : one of bodily or mental tension resulting from factors that tend to alter an existent equilibrium (e.g. job-related stress)[2]. This means that there is no end all and be all cause to stress. Stress can result from a number of things, and many of those things are beyond our control.

Hormones and stress

When we become stressed, our body goes into flight or fight mode. There are 3 major hormones that help this response along. The first one is Adrenaline. Adrenaline increases your heart rate, focuses your attention, and gives you a surge of energy. You can imagine that this will come in handy if your house is on fire and you have to get people out. But if you’re in a constant state of stress, your muscles tense up, your breathing is faster and shallow, and you’re sweating a lot. This heightened response does not bid well for you if your body is almost always left in this state.

Another hormone released when we are stressed is Norepinephrine which acts a lot like Adrenaline. It makes you more responsive by shifting blood flow towards where your body deems it is more needed, like your muscles, so you have more strength to respond to stressors quickly. This is why you feel tense and constantly tired when you’re stressed.

Cortisol the stress hormone

Lastly, there’s Cortisol. Cortisol is a steroid hormone, commonly known as the stress hormone. Like the first two, it helps regulate some bodily functions that aren’t crucial at the moment and drives processes considered more important like increased blood pressure. Again, this can be a good thing in the face of danger. These 3 hormones make you quicker to respond to danger, more focused, and stronger. However, elevated levels over a long period of time of these 3 hormones can cause serious repercussions to your health. It manifests in many ways such as a weaker immune system, higher blood pressure, decreased libido, risk for obesity, sleep disorder, and can even contribute to mental health disorders.

How you can reduce stress

Unfortunately, stress cannot be avoided. We might have challenging jobs, home responsibilities, and difficult relationships that can cause us to be under stress for long periods of time. So if stress can not be avoided, what can we do about it?

Here are 4 ways that can help to bring your stress levels down:

Take a walk (or a meditative activity)

Walking can bring your body into a state of meditation specifically via a phenomenon known as “involuntary attention”. This is the act of engaging in an activity that allows for reflection while doing something that holds our attention. The saying “walk it off to clear your head” really does hold water...or any repetitive activity for that matter (running, yoga, pilates, deep breathing exercises) that you can do to bring your body into a state of meditation.

Progressive Muscle Relaxation

The Huffington Post outlines the steps to Progressive Muscle Relaxation with this: “Start with your toes and work your way up: tighten your foot muscles as much as you can, then relax them. Make your way up, tightening and relaxing each muscle until you’ve finished with your face. It may seem silly, but this practice can help reduce anxiety and stress and is often recommended to patients who suffer from depression and anxiety disorders”[3].

Look at the bright side

Mayo Clinic explains that “Laughter enhances your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulates your heart, lungs and muscles, and increases the endorphins that are released by your brain”[4]. So go watch funny movies. Have a laugh with friends. Read the newspaper cartoons. When it comes to relieving stress, it is true that “Laughter is the best medicine.”

Eat healthfully

Paying particular attention to what you eat can prove beneficial in the fight against stress. A diet that incorporates fresh foods such as berries, cashews, and avocados, is so much better than eating processed food. Wind down for the day over a cup of chamomile or green tea. Or consider supplements such as Ashwagandha. It’s adaptogenic properties can help to stimulate the central nervous system and help fight stress by reducing cortisol levels. It is also known to be a mood elevator. Kulture's superfood Vanilla Happy contains ashwagandha and helps to reduce stress and anxiety. 

So go ahead...take a long walk by the beach, learn to relax, watch those funny cat videos, and eat well!
