From the supplement to know for a better night’s sleep to superfood drinks, here’s what you need to know about in the world of health and wellbeing this September…

Avea Life

A first-of-its-kind supplement range, Avea Life’s formulas are created by scientists in Switzerland using the finest ingredients to control the body’s response to ageing, in turn improving energy levels, metabolism and cognitive function. It all comes down to a handful of next-gen ingredients, such as NAD+, a nutrient that studies show levels off as we age, contributing to an overall lack of vitality. Taken in tandem, Avea Life’s supplement duo will leave you feeling and looking more youthful. 


Phyto Nectars

Founded by Katia Narain Phillips – a wellness expert and author who’s been in the industry for over 30 years – Phyto Nectars offers a different way to take your supplements. With no added sugars or artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners, its superfood drink powders are made with plant proteins, mushrooms and botanical extracts to support body and mind. We can’t get enough of the Focused blend, packed with lion’s mane, ashwagandha and iron to support mental endurance. Look out too for Resilient, a vibrant, energy-boosting blend made with chaga mushroom, turmeric, selenium, folate and B vitamins. Mix one sachet with water or your favourite plant milk to get your daily dose.



If you struggle to wind down at the end of the day or feel constantly wired, Melo’s handheld device will guide you through three breathing exercises proven to reduce stress and anxiety. Working independently from your phone, its clever wireless set-up means you won’t be disturbed by notifications, and its soothing light patterns will take you through a breathing session of your choice. Lightweight and portable, it fits easily into your gym or travel bag for mindful moments on demand.   



Leapfrog’s first supplement, Immune, was a go-to for those in the know during the pandemic, so we’re expecting its new product Snooze to be just as good. A clever combination of lactoferrin (an anti-inflammatory protein from cow’s milk), vitamin B6 and lactium (a gentle milk protein that has proven relaxing properties), it promises to reduce cortisol levels, decrease anxiety and stress, and aid a deeper and more restful night’s sleep. Chew two tablets around an hour before bed for best results.



If you suffer from vaginal dryness, find sex uncomfortable or are looking to transform your orgasm, Quanna’s Oomf lube has you covered. A natural, water-based formula infused with premium-grade, organically grown CBD, this hydrating lubricant will increase sensitivity, promote blood flow and alleviate discomfort for a better experience. With a natural pH balance to protect delicate areas, it’s also free from nasties such as parabens, glycerine and alcohol, and is endorsed by gynaecologists.


The Other Space

For the ultimate dose of self-care, book in at The Other Space, London’s hottest wellness destination this autumn. Its unique holistic treatments – think astrology workshops, shamanic healing, reiki and breathwork sessions – are made for stressed-out urbanites, while the state-of-the-art gym, sauna and steam room will please gym bunnies. Not sure what to book? The Other Space’s wellbeing concierge is on hand for recommendations and bespoke treatments. We’re booking in for a private sound healing session with a side of tarot. 



Founded by two of Greece’s most eminent pharmacists, Symbeeosis champions organic ingredients and low-impact production methods to create its unique collection of functional honey, teas and supplements. Its products are born out of sustainable, regenerative practices with respect for Greek biodiversity – think organic herbs for its mountain teas and honey obtained from beekeepers with over 60 years of experience. Be sure to try the Greek Mountain Tea Trinity, believed to boost energy levels and provide relief from cold symptoms; and its turmeric-infused honey for anti-inflammatory protection. 



From the team behind Votary, Verden’s natural fragrance products for bath, body and home are all made with self-care in mind. Recognising the importance of natural scents and self-care rituals to wellbeing, Verden’s three scents offer something for everyone – we can’t get enough of Arborealist, a gorgeous blend of woods and smoky greens, while Herbanum is infused with the fresh scent of fresh herbs and wild grasses. For an added wellbeing boost, download the Verden app and get involved with its breathwork sessions. 



If your gym wardrobe could do with a couple of new additions, Vaara’s seamless collection is where to find them. Each piece – from leggings to sports bras – is made for a second-skin fit and provides the perfect amount of compressive support. Whether you’re heading for a reformer class or practising yoga at home, the collection will see you through in style. Plus, the muted palette means they’ll pair seamlessly with other pieces in your wardrobe, and they can easily be layered up as autumn approaches.
