For those with dairy intolerance or sustainability concerns, Hoppa cricket protein powder has always been a go-to when it comes to high protein supplements however, the business has lately seen a sharp increase in sales with new customers switching or incorporating cricket protein into their daily diets. Hoppa’s cricket protein powder is continuously receiving 5star reviews from its customers and the brand has a growing following on social media including Instagram.   EASY TO CONSUME Cricket Protein Powder is easy to consume – customers can simply add a tablespoon of it to their shakes and smoothies to start benefitting from it. The product is naturally low in sugar and has more than 60% protein. It’s also rich in a range of essential nutrients including amino acids, omegas, and vitamin B12. It has zero artificial ingredients or any other nasties and is gluten and dairy-free.    A NON-GMO, ECO-FRIENDLY SOURCE OF PROTEIN  The powder is also non-GMO. This means it’s produced without genetic engineering, and none of its ingredients are derived from GMOs. Cricket Powder is a sustainable, paleo and environmentally friendly source of protein. The powder offers considerable benefits not only for those that consume it but the world around them too.    RESPONSIBLY RAISED CRICKETS The crickets used to create the powder are raised responsibly on a highly nutritional diet. Consumers worried about the taste of cricket powder should feel assured that it offers a mildly nutty taste. One of the main reasons eating cricket-based products has become so popular is that they are incredibly rich in clean protein. All of our cells and tissues contain protein, which is essential for growth, repair and general health maintenance.     A GREAT SOURCE OF FIBRE Crickets are also a notable source of fibre, unlike many sources of animal protein. Studies suggest a fibre-based diet can reduce our risk of strokes, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and bowel cancer.

Crickets also provide us with polyunsaturated fatty acids, which may reduce the risk of heart disease.    WHY CHOOSE HOPPA?  Hoppa is proud to be one of the world’s leading suppliers of superfoods fueled by crickets. Aiming to provide a wealth of nutritious sustainable superfoods, Hoppa is fully committed to food sustainability and has received coverage from a wide range of high-profile media outlets.

Avoid cyberbullying, toxic content, and overuse of unregulated social media platforms these school holidays by following a few simple steps. A recent study commissioned by Esber revealed that 96% of Australians aged 18-56 are currently using Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, tiktok, twitter or snapchat with: 3 out of 4 were most concerned about the security of their personal information. Over half were also concerned about their data being sold. 40% are worried about what their children are exposed to. 39% were concerned about there being no laws about what can and can’t be shared. 40% would even be happy to pay for access to a safe social media platform. “We spend a lot of time on social media, even more so in school holidays and especially if you are under lockdown. It’s a well-known fact that cyberbullying has been linked to depression, anxiety, social isolation, and more recently suicide in teens. Our increased usage and reliance on social media apps during the COVID pandemic have only exacerbated these problems, especially during lockdowns. “The difference between traditional bullying and cyberbullying is that in the digital world people are usually anonymous and people feel trapped as a result. The current global social media platforms have tried to address this, but all the solutions have been reactive in nature to date. Most people don’t seek support, and research suggests 71% of young people don’t think social media platforms do enough to prevent cyberbullying. We need to change this!” said Esber. Mick Esber’s top five tips to keep families cyber safe during the current lockdown include: Create a family technology plan and stick to it. Limit social media and app usage to one hour per day at set times. Ensure all parental controls are in place and updated, so you can see the content your children are viewing at all times. Update all passwords using a reputable password manager to avoid being hacked, making sure you don’t use generic passwords. Talk to your children about what they are viewing, explain the risks and be involved to ensure they aren’t developing unrealistic expectations of life and reality. Educate yourself on what toxic content is and how it can impact your children now and later in life.

Officially launching last week, Rochway Beauty Sleep is an essential this lockdown, combining powerful natural sleep aids with innovative probiotics and marine collagen for optimal gut health, whole-body wellbeing, and a good night's sleep. Krystle Alves, Nutritionist and Holistic Wellbeing Expert says, “A recent study exposed 150 healthy people to the common cold virus. These subjects were then monitored for their health status and immune response. It found that those that were getting less sleep, five hours in the week before being exposed to the virus had a 50% infection rate. Those that slept seven or more hours had an infection rate of just 18%. It’s possible that those sleepless nights are significantly increasing your chance of catching something. So, getting enough sleep is key in bolstering your system to resist colds, flu, and other infections."The three key ingredients in Rochway’s Beauty Sleep include:1. Marine Collagen to regenerate and rehydrate the skin. It is also responsible for maintaining skin elasticity, skin texture and minimising the appearance of wrinkles and signs of ageing. Plus, it supports the skin to keep it firm, plump and glowing. 2. Sour Cherry is rich in the vital sleep hormone melatonin, a central part of the body’s sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin promotes healthy sleep and helps to orient the circadian rhythm. It also contains proanthocyanidins that can help the body convert the amino acid tryptophan into serotonin.3. Calming herbs Valerian and Hops top off the Beauty Sleep formula, promoting relaxation and calmness to promote a natural slumber. Taken one to two hours before bedtime, the new Beauty Sleep product completes the brand’s journey to wellness ethos, by now providing Australians with 24-hour gut health solutions across the range.Rochway’s new Beauty Sleep probiotic liquid is available now at rochway.com.au at an RRP of $49.99.Let me know if you're interested in speaking to Krystle, or some product if you haven't already received or requested some! Rochway Beauty Sleep Officially Launches – An Australian first! 2021-06-24T04:03:47Z rochway-beauty-sleep-officially-launches-an-australian-first Rochway is thrilled to announce the launch of Australia’s first natural beauty sleep tonic – Rochway Beauty Sleep. Combining powerful natural sleep aids with innovative probiotics, the delicious natural berry liquid is formulated with sour cherry and calming herbs valerian and hops to encourage quality sleep to reset the body and mind. The unique formula also includes marine collagen and probiotics fermented with Rochway’s exclusive BioRestore™ fermentation process for optimal gut health and whole-body wellbeing. Tegan Martin, Rochway Beauty Sleep Ambassador, someone who knows how important it is to get quality zzz’s to reset the body and mind says, “There have been times in my life where I was having too much sleep, alongside phases where I just wasn’t getting enough. It’s been a personal work in progress learning about how to get to the source of what is influencing my sleep patterns. From improving my physical health to learning how to calm my racing mind at night, sleep will always be a major priority for me. I started trialling the Rochway Beauty Sleep a few months ago and have finally found something that I can take every night to naturally fall into a deep restful sleep and wake up feeling refreshed each morning.” Naturopath and Holistic Wellbeing Expert Krystle Alves advises, “We all know how vital sleep is for health and well-being. With many studies now supporting the importance of sleep in healing, reproductive health, immune function, weight management, brain function and even the ability to regulate your emotions all of these and more have been linked to sleep. “The fact is sleep impacts several facial qualities including skin health. A study published in clinical and experimental dermatology (2015) found that good sleepers (7-9hrs) had lower skin ageing scores, and a higher skin barrier recovery after injury up to 30% better than poor sleepers. Another study by Tina Sundelin also showed that those who were sleep deprived were perceived as being, less healthy, less attractive and subjects may have felt less likely to want to interact with them socially. This new Beauty Sleep formula is a great compliment to a sound evening routine with the right active ingredients combined to target concerns,” said Krystle. The three key ingredients in Rochway’s Beauty Sleep include: 1. Marine Collagen to regenerate and rehydrate the skin.

NutriKane D has been clinically proven in multiple studies to lower and control blood sugar levels by nourishing the gut with the complex biochemistry of whole foods.Diabetes is at epidemic levels globally, with 463 million people currently living with the condition, and a further 374 million at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. It is one of the biggest challenges confronting the Australian healthcare system and the fastest growing chronic condition in Australia, increasing at an even faster rate than diseases such as cancer and heart disease.Rod Lewis, CEO and co-founder of MediKane, says, “Diabetes is the epidemic of the 21st century and is presenting enormous challenges to global healthcare systems. While there are many pharmaceutical medications available that can help to manage the symptoms of diabetes, there are currently no pharmaceutical treatments available that can reverse or cure the condition. We started MediKane with the aim of leveraging the principles of Food as Medicine to develop natural, plant-based products to prevent, manage and reverse chronic conditions. With NutriKane D, we’ve developed a functional food product that has been clinically proven to lower and control blood sugar levels while also reducing systemic inflammation.”Controlling blood sugar levels is essential for people living with, or at risk of, diabetes. Standard diabetes management techniques involve daily invasive monitoring (with finger prick tests), strict dietary management, and - often - pharmaceutical medications. However, progression of the condition is very common, even with medication. Patricia Reed, a Registered Nurse and health and lifestyle consultant at Total Health Options, has seen the impact of poorly managed diabetes, and has also seen first-hand the positive affect that NutriKane D can have on the lives of people living with diabetes.“Poorly managed diabetes can lead to some really terrible outcomes for many people living with the condition, from blindness to nerve damage that ends in amputations, to an increased risk of heart attacks, stroke or kidney failure,” explains Ms Reed. “Having consistently high blood sugar levels can cause damage to the major organs and significantly impact a person’s quality of life, as well as their actual lifespan. NutriKane D, which has been scientifically proven to lower blood glucose, can be life-changing for people living with diabetes, and personally I’ve seen dramatic improvements in many of my own patients after they begin using the product. Many of my patients have been able to reduce their medications, and some have been able to come off their medications altogether. Apart from improved blood sugar levels, my patients also report that they’re sleeping better, their brain fog has lifted and their concentration levels have improved.”One of NutriKane D’s ingredients is Australian sugarcane, which has had the sugar removed, leaving the powerful natural biochemistry of the plant intact. Sugarcane has been used in ancient health remedies, particularly in Asia, for thousands of years. “While it might seem ironic that an ingredient in a product to lower blood sugar levels is sugarcane, it actually makes sense when you look at the science,” explains MediKane’s Chief Scientific Officer and co-founder, Dr Malcolm Ball. “Sugarcane is one of only a few plants that uses sugar as its energy source, so it contains all of this incredible biochemistry that is needed to properly process sugar. What we’ve done with NutriKane D is use a special process to remove the sugar from the sugarcane, but leave all of that complex biochemistry behind. We’ve then combined it with a range of other science-backed ingredients which contain soluble and insoluble fibres and resistant starch, to create a safe, plant-based product that lowers blood sugar and promotes a healthy gut microbiome.”Results from clinical trials into NutriKane D showed blood sugar levels were reduced by 2.2 times when patients used the product compared to diet and exercise alone. Based on these results, the Australian Government provided MediKane with an Australian Research Council (ARC) grant of more than $2 million, which funded a research project led by Distinguished Professor Ian Paulsen of the Department of Molecular Sciences at Macquarie University, who investigated how NutriKane D works in the human body.“What we found is that NutriKane D greatly increased the diversity of microbes in the gut which is a sign of good gut health,” says Prof Paulsen. “We also saw an increase in bacteria that have anti-inflammatory properties.“NutriKane D works by repairing and balancing the body, improving the gut microbiome and helping the body to work more effectively for itself.“I worked in the pharmaceutical industry for many years, and I can categorically state that today’s diabetes management practices do not work nearly well enough, and there are currently no cures,” concludes Dr Ball. “With MediKane, we’ve taken the Food as Medicine approach to managing chronic conditions like diabetes – alongside an evidence-based diet and exercise program - because the medical evidence that good health begins with food is overwhelming. We believe the success and clinical evidence of NutriKane D really proves that the Food as Medicine approach is the best way to tackle chronic conditions. We also have a range of other products in our pipeline for different health conditions - all plant-based, safe and free from unwanted side effects.”MediKane is launching an equity crowd-sourced funding campaign to drive the next stage of the company’s growth, including international expansion plans, which is currently open for expressions of interest on the Birchal platform at https://www.birchal.com/company/medikane.NutriKane D is available via selected health food outlets, pharmacies and online at https://nutrikane.com.au.- ENDS – Media contact: Rachel McDougallrachel@crystalclearcommunications.com.auPh: 0401 694 301 About MediKaneMediKane is a Food as Medicine company that develops Australian-made, natural health products with the scientific rigour of pharmaceutical drug development.All of MediKane’s products are manufactured in Australia, using Australian-grown ingredients, utilising a multi-step process designed to protect the company’s Intellectual Property and maintain confidentiality of the processing details.https://www.medikane.com.au Rod Lewis – CEO and Co-FounderRod has had an incredibly diverse career, beginning with qualifications in science (diabetes biochemistry) and management, and working across a range of different industries and fields, from product development, production and construction of manufacturing and distribution facilities, before moving into senior commercial roles.His professional background includes senior leadership roles at Heinz, Cadbury Schweppes, The Fosters Group, BOC Gases and Legrand.

Under the careful tutelage of COSO Architects and working in conjunction with the skilful hands of Habit8 Landscape Architects, the innovative team were able to realise the creative fusion set down by Anthony Solomon & David Vago. Featuring grouped EcoPillows over three key areas of the top floor of the complex, the planting system was designed to not only provide privacy for the residents but also a greenspace for those looking into and out of the building. Mark Paul, Founder and Director of The Greenwall Company says, “The addition of our greening solutions to the development has enabled the complex to reach a 5-star sustainability rating and provide a sustainable system, designed to last the lifetime of the building.” The project was faced with multiple challenges, including difficult access due to being located on a major road bus route, numerous neighbours at close quarters, and a head contractor eager to reach practical completion with a plethora of trades completing tasks at one time. The Greenwall Company were also challenged to deliver on time and on budget a variety of species sourced from different environs, including Byron Bay & Northern Rivers. The high-density living of this complex was softened greatly by mature planting, pre-grown by The Greenwall Company, which has resulted in a significant reduction of ambient noise, while creating instant privacy and tranquillity for both residents and neighbours alike. Anthony Solomon, Director of COSO Architects said, “Under the guidance of the team leader and skillful staff, the Greenwall Company were able to successfully deliver a first-class product to this bespoke development.” About The Greenwall Company: The Greenwall Company is the premier producer of modular and custom designed greenwalls in Australia.

In 2020, Australia suffered the most shark attack fatalities in 86 years, while statistics published by the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) show that 93% of all animals caught in their shark nets on NSW beaches were bycatch and that 55% of the total catch died. The new LR1000 Shark Barrier has been developed in partnership with Armscor’s Institute of Maritime Technology division, Armscor is the acquisition agency for the South African Department of Defence. Using proven Shark Shield Technology, the LR1000 is the result of six years of research, development, and testing, resulting in a scalable solution for beaches, resorts, and aquaculture organisations experiencing financial loss due to shark predation or incursions. Sharks have short-range electrical receptors in their snouts used for finding food. Shark Shield Technology is used to create a powerful three-dimensional electrical field which causes spasms in these sensitive receptors turning sharks away. There are no known harmful effects on sharks or humans. Shore powered, the LR1000 can be installed in sections up to 400 meters in length with multiples of this possible to cover larger areas. The system consists of surface buoys spaced 3 meters apart, on each buoy is a free hanging antenna cable with depth coverage of up to 12 metres. The free hanging antenna provides low resistance to ocean swells, currents, and no resistance or entanglement risk to other sea creatures such as whales, dolphins, turtles, etc. MP Jason Falinksi stated, “The Northern Beaches recently voted to remove environmentally damaging shark nets and drumlines, this is long overdue. What is also long overdue is the use of new technology that protects both wildlife, swimmers, surfers and our blue economy. I strongly urge the government and authorities to use the new technology alternatives such as Ocean Guardian’s Shark Barrier that do not adversely impact our environment.” Lindsay Lyon, CEO of Ocean Guardian says, “We are experiencing enormous global demand for the LR1000 from iconic tourist sites like the Busselton Jetty in Western Australia to private resorts such as Great Stirrup Bay Island in the Bahamas, where we previously sold sixty of our BOAT01’s for resort protection. Shark attacks have a significant impact on local economies and tourism, and there is growing environmental demand to remove inhumane and harmful shark mitigation measures such as shark nets and drumlines. We’ve had exceptional growth in our B2C business during 2020/21 and the new B2B Shark Barrier will provide a transformational growth opportunity for our company.” To fund the significant growth presented by the new B2B Shark Barrier the Company has also signed an agreement with VCF Capital Partners to act as corporate advisors to raise up to $10 million dollars through a private placement and/or an Initial Public Offering (IPO) in 2021/22. “Australia has some of the best beaches in the world, coupled with the rate of developments in coastal towns plus the increasing rate of city dwellers opting for a sea change for better work/life balance driven by COVID, we have more people in the water, resulting in more risk. Ocean Guardian has the technology to implement protection in key tourist areas,” said Lindsay. About Ocean Guardian: Ocean Guardian is the world’s leading shark deterrent technology company.

In the paper titled “Predicting potential future reduction in shark bites on people”, scientists say that the use of Ocean Guardian’s personal electronic shark deterrents is an effective way to prevent the future deaths and injuries of up to 1063 Australians over the next 50 years. In 2020, Australia suffered the most shark attack fatalities in 86 years, causing a significant economic and emotional impact on the communities in which they occurred. Ocean Guardian is the world’s leading shark deterrent technology company. Since 2001 the company’s Shark Shield Technology has protected tens of thousands of ocean lovers and prevented the unnecessary killing of animals from environmentally fatal shark nets, drum-lines and shark culling. Ocean Guardian’s Shark Shield Technology is the only scientifically proven electrical shark deterrent supported by peer-reviewed published research, and successful in deterring Great Whites. The technology is so effective government has approved the devices for consumer rebates. Nothing is more effective. In a recent interview with Surf Lifesaving South Australia Dr Charlie Huveneers from Flinders University explained the facts around electronic deterrents saying, “…the electric deterrents can reduce shark bites by about 60%. People will automatically think that the 40% is when the sharks approach at speed, and maybe with a predatory intent and we actually found that it’s not the case, even when the sharks approach at speed with a predatory intent, the electric deterrents can still actually stop a shark when its approaching very fast. And when it’s within half a metre, the shark can and will actually turn around and stop that predatory approach in some situations, and that’s actually increased with the electric deterrent as well.” Sharks have short-range electrical receptors in their snouts used for finding food. Shark Shield Technology is used to create a powerful three-dimensional electrical field which causes spasms in these sensitive receptors turning sharks away. There are no known harmful effects on sharks or humans. Lindsay Lyon, CEO of Ocean Guardian says, “This new research adds additional scientific evidence to the shark mitigation strategy deployed by the Western Australian State Government in providing consumers rebates for proven electronic shark deterrents as good economic policy. Over 70% of shark fatalities in WA over the past fifteen years have been surfers and divers, and providing individual personal protection is without question the best shark mitigation strategy. We hope this research encourages other state and federal governments to recommend the use of proven personal electronic shark deterrent.” The researchers analysed per-capita shark bites around Australia from 1900 to 2020 and developed models to estimate the preventative impact of Ocean Guardian electronic shark deterrents if they were worn by water users, to predict how many shark bites could be avoided. Lead author Professor Corey Bradshaw of Flinders University says efforts to reduce the risk of shark bites, even if they are extremely rare, are valuable with proven electronic shark deterrents capable of reducing the likelihood of a bite by about 60%, potentially saving hundreds of lives over the next 50 years. In NSW last month Northern Beaches Council voted to pass a motion urging the state government to abolish the shark nets at its local beaches. This motion comes after new data released by the Animal Justice Party revealed 290 animals had died in Northern Beaches shark nets over the past nine years, including 18 whales and dolphins, 21 turtles, and 224 threatened or protected species. Statistics published by the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) show that 93% of all animals caught in their shark nets on NSW beaches were bycatch and that 55% of the total catch died. www.oceanguardian.com.au About Ocean Guardian: Ocean Guardian is the world’s leading shark deterrent technology company.

According to Justine Wilson, Sydney Property Stylist and Founder of Vault Interiors, as winter is traditionally a time for hibernation, rest and recharge, and to enjoy guilt-free time indoors - it’s important to cosy up the living quarters of the home. Justine says, “Some key trends I expect to see this winter are the new accent colours of rich plum, warm apricot, burnt orange through to deep green and olive tones throughout the home. Outdoor living spaces will remain popular, while layering, ambient or hygge lighting, and bringing greenery and earthy materials from the outside in will also be key focuses.” Justine Wilson’s top five trends for winter 2021 include: Each year new winter accent colours come out. This year we are seeing rich plum tones, warm apricot tones, burnt orange, rust tones and deep green and olive tones. These accent colours take a cue from the changing exterior landscape and will help to bring the outside in. Switch out your cushions, throws and accessories to get the look. Look to make your outdoor spaces more useable in the cooler months. Think about free-standing pergolas, large umbrellas, or shade cloths for a little more protection from the elements. Also, winter is a great time to have long cosy nights around a fire pit, you can source wood-burning or gas or ethanol options to suit your property’s needs. Plus, add some fun seating like wood stumps or comfy outdoor chairs, and your good to go. Layering is a wonderful styling tool in winter, consider using double rugs, double bed throws, extra cushions and thicker curtains. The more layers and textures you can introduce into your interior the better, as it will help with warmth and also adds to the cosy factor of any space. Faux fur rugs and throws, wool knits and velvets are wonderful styling textures to use in winter. Having nice ambient lighting will help your home feel welcoming and pretty, opt for table lamps with warm globes. Pretty outdoor lanterns with candles or LED candles, and inside use candlesticks or candle votives. Candles will help your home smell great and also look pretty. A big trend is grouping lots of vintage brass candlesticks on a coffee table, mantle or dining table. Mix and match styles of candlesticks for a pretty eclectic look, they can be found easily at charity shops. Adding twinkle fairy lights is also a pretty way to bring soft lighting into your space. As the leaves start to fall outside, it’s a nice touch to bring some greenery or earthy materials inside. In winter display seasonal florals or just bunches of greenery to create pretty vignettes or moments on your surfaces. Succulents and eucalypts are great for this time of year, or you can also forage pretty branches from your own garden, or bring in potted plants and create little clusters.
