Winter can take its toll on skin and general health, so it is an ideal time to research a boost, which is where Kiwi Health 2020 Ltd comes into play. Its website is chock full of vitamin and supplement suggestions, aimed at improving all manner of things from skin tone and elasticity to weight management, joint support and, specifically for men, libido, stamina and erectile function.
Apple cider vinegar is a popular health food which Kiwi Health owner Karl Petersen says is often used for weight management, and for its anti-arthritis and diabetes benefits.
Keto powder is another supplement that Karl advocates using for weight management.
“It promotes the body to enter ketosis, which is when the body utilises fat for fuel, as opposed to carbohydrates. If your body is burning fat, you will lose weight.”
He says keto powder is also used for improved mental clarity, energy, better digestion, and sleep.
Another supplement on his winter suggestion list is Collagen C, which he says can support skin, nail, hair, bone, and tendon health.
For these and other supplements, check out the website. Orders are shipped daily Monday to Friday for New Zealand delivery the next business day.
What can one say about Crisp Café that hasn’t been said already? Locals come from around Christchurch and even as far as Ashburton, just to sample the great eats and beverages from Nick and Sue Leadbeater and their family- run café. Located at Shop 2 in the heart of the Fendalton Village Shopping Centre, Crisp Café is a warm and friendly family-run business, which you experience the moment you set foot in the door.
The most unique aspect of Crisp Café is the food on offer, particularly the addition of ketogenic or keto foods to the menu – keto is based on the concept of high-fat and low-carb. Gluten-free food also makes up more than half of Crisp Café’s menu, making it the definitive gluten-free go-to in Canterbury.
With a stunning selection of sweets, savouries, pies, slices and even some scrumptious cheesecakes, you are well catered for. Basically, if the centrepiece of your diet is of a gluten-free variety, you simply won’t find this level of culinary choice anywhere else.
A hot cup of barista-made coffee is never far away and the fully equipped kitchen is expertly run by Nick and his team. With a new menu proving very popular, and great weekly specials on hand, isn’t it time you visited Crisp Café?
