Supplements play a crucial role in daily routines and lifestyles for individuals amongst all age demographics, including mum. Health and looking after our bodies, inside and out, has never been more emphasised and there is one product that is changing (and challenging) the playing field amongst a highly saturated market of supplements. That product is Synext – a supplement that combines an array of active ingredients that support the AMPK pathway of the body to trigger a series of positive cellular activities. Combining a variety of potent antioxidants, Synext synergistically combats the aging process to reduce the prevalence of free radicals formed in the body. With fifteen active ingredients, leading the mix is Niacin, Quercetin and Curcumin that are research-backed to help formulate an effective blend. Contrary to competing products that only include one ingredient, Synext takes advantage of the synergistic effect of fifteen key ingredients that cover all metabolic pathways related to anti-aging. Ideal for those wanting to take control and better their health in more ways than just one, Synext is the singular supplement with major internal and external benefits that supports your daily routine and maintains the functioning of healthy bodies, skin and lifestyles. In a world fascinated by the supplement craze, Synext makes taking care of our health easy, effective and innovative.

Pick up some luxurious pillows for mum this Mother’s Day! The Ergoflex™ memory foam pillow shapes around you for immediate pressure-relief and instant comfort that lasts the entire night, every night. Featuring the same high-density visco-elastic memory foam used in the Ergoflex™ 5G mattress, Australia’s original mattress in a box brand, the Ergoflex™ pillow delivers the perfect ergonomic support for your head and neck. It works by gently shaping to your neck and head providing just the right amount of comfort and support, while avoiding the ‘sinking feeling’ of softer, low-density alternatives. Just like the Ergoflex™ Memory Foam Mattress, the Ergoflex™ Pillow has a luxurious TENCEL™ cover. TENCEL™ is an all-natural material with a cellular fibre construction that delivers high-performance breathability and comfort – making it the perfect match for the Ergoflex™ sleep experience. The TENCEL™ cover is also removable and washable, for lasting hygiene. The Ergoflex™ Memory Foam Pillow is also designed to be ideal for allergy sufferers . The solid core of the pillow prevents and eliminates foreign object build-up, while the material itself is naturally anti-allergenic and anti-microbial. This results in a beautifully healthy and hygienic pillow, with no hidden surprises. By choosing the Ergoflex™ Memory Foam Pillow, you’re investing in a premium choice that won’t let you down. It’s the perfect finishing touch for a peaceful, rejuvenating and energising sleep. Finally Ergoflex™ is great for everyone, but it has found a lot of fans in elite sporting circles. The outstanding support performance of Ergoflex is perfect for resting and rejuvenating those who push their bodies to the limit and demand more from their mattress, as their Olympian ambassadors can testify (including our very own Jessica Fox – Gold Medal winner at Tokyo)!
