New Zealand is sometimes referred to as the «youngest country on Earth». It’s not surprising, then, that New Zealand guards many little-known products and practices which can improve your health and well-being, allowing you to feel just as fresh-faced as this young pacific nation.
1. Geothermal Pools and Spas
Situated on the convergence of two tectonic plates, New Zealand benefits from a number of naturally-occurring hot springs. Their mineral-rich waters can help repair and rejuvenate your body, while the warm water increases the flow of oxygen-rich blood throughout the body, nourishing vital organs and tissues. One leading example is the Polynesian Spa in Rotorua, where visitors can enjoy massage therapies, hot spring bathing and other spa therapies overlooking Lake Rotorua. A day at one of New Zealand’s many world-class spas can improve muscular complaints, arthritis and rheumatism, and leave you feeling better than ever.
2. Rotorua Mud Products
On a similar note, New Zealand is also the enviable safekeeper of many skincare and beauty products made using Rotorua mud. Rotorua is a region on New Zealand’s North Island famous for its geothermal activity and hot springs. Mud from this region is creamy, velvety smooth and 샌즈카지노 full of natural minerals, which makes it extremely therapeutic as well as detoxifying, soothing and remineralising. Rotorua mud-based face masks, soaps, body scrubs and lotions work to penetrate and cleanse the pores, leaving skin noticeably more radiant and refreshed. These products are available throughout New Zealand and at select duty-free stores.
3. Seafood-rich Diets
New Zealanders are spoilt for choice when it comes to fresh, high-quality seafood. It is commonly known that fish and other seafood are a good source of high-quality protein, low in saturated fats, and are the most readily available source of omega-3. Omega-3 has been shown to reduce the risk of cancers, heart attacks or stroke, improve brain function and lessen symptoms of osteoporosis, arthritis, and some autoimmune disorders. Popular types of fish consumed in New Zealand include salmon, tuna, tarakihi, snapper, gurnard, trevally and hoki.
4. Royal Jelly Products
Honey bees have been kept in New Zealand for over 150 years, with the industry now including over 500,000 hives and 10,000,000 kilograms of annual honey production. One popular by-product of the industry is royal jelly-a milky secretion containing various fats, proteins, sugar, and vitamins. Royal jelly has been used to treat asthma, hay fever, insomnia, skin disorders, pancreatitis and several other diseases. Royal jelly products are also commonly consumed as a general health tonic, to fight the effects of aging, and boost the immune system.
