Triumph for BetterYou at 2018 Mama & Baby Awards

Natural health company BetterYou has scooped not one, but two accolades at The Beauty Shortlist’s 2018 Mama & Baby Awards.

Celebrating the clean, green stand-outs for mums and their little ones, the awards have named BetterYou’s brand-new Magnesium Sleep Lotion Junior the ‘Best Sleep-Like-A-Baby Product’ and its DLuxInfant Vitamin D Oral Spray the ‘Best Health Product for Infants/Young Children’.

The awards were voted for by a prestigious panel of health bloggers, beauty writers and business owners from across the UK, Ireland, USA and Australia.

BetterYou’s new Magnesium Sleep Lotion Junior is a fast-acting natural remedy which is clinically proven to improve sleep quality. Containing skin-kind active ingredients including magnesium chloride, to help relax tired bodies and lavender and chamomile, to slow sensory activity and quieten the mind in readiness for sleep.

The body needs magnesium to maintain a state of complete rest and low levels can lead to restless muscles which can disturb sleep throughout the night. Magnesium also ensures the GABA receptors in our brain and nervous system are working effectively – these help the brain to switch off in preparation for sleep. Magnesium is crucial in the activation of vitamin D so it can be used within the body. Research shows vitamin D cannot be metabolised without sufficient magnesium levels, meaning vitamin D remains stored and inactive.

This means that the Magnesium Sleep Lotion Junior works hand in hand with the DLuxInfant Vitamin D Oral Spray. The oral spray, which is suitable for children under three years, has a simple and pure tooth-kind formulation which combines coconut oil and vitamin D to deliver this vital vitamin directly into the bloodstream.

The UK Department of Health highlights all children under three years as an ‘at risk’ group for vitamin D deficiency and recommend that they should be given a daily supplement. DLuxInfant oral spray provides little ones which a guaranteed nutritional dosage that traditional tablets, capsules and drops simply can’t.

Andrew Thomas, Founder and Managing Director of BetterYou said: “We are delighted that both our Magnesium Sleep Lotion Junior and DLuxInfant Oral Spray have been recognised by specialists in the parenting industry. We are excited to be expanding our children’s range and are continuously striving to develop products using pioneering delivery mechanisms to make supplementing as effortless as possible for those with growing bodies”.

Transdermal magnesium and oral vitamin sprays are an effective and convenient method of supplementation compared to traditional tablets and capsules in elevating nutrient levels, as it delivers the nutrient directly to the bloodstream completely avoiding the digestive system. In many cases the absorption via these delivery mechanisms has been proven to be vastly superior.
