In powder form, this can be taken orally; between 2-8 grams daily with water or orange juice.

The MiSMo MSM difference? MiSMo stocks ONLY PURE, pharmaceutical grade MSM. Carrying both regular MSM and the more premium MSM distilled crystals, both are of the highest quality assurance – so no fillers, foreign materials or nasties are included. The difference between regular MSM and distilled MSM crystals is in the production process. The crystals are produced through a centrifuge ‘spun’ process, whereas the distilled is vapour captured through a boiling process. In terms of consumption, distilled has less inclusions than the regular MSM, although as mentioned both supplied by MiSMo are pharmaceutical grade.

MiSMo Magnesium Chloride Powder is produced from pristine sea waters and is of the highest quality. This ‘food grade’ muscle relaxant is readily absorbed into the body through foot baths, baths or as an oil. The daily recommended dosage of elemental Magnesium is approximately 400mg but research has found magnesium deficient people need more. Conditions that benefit from this product include: High blood pressure, Insomnia, Muscle Pain, Cramps, Anxiety and Depression, Restless legs, Headaches, Diabetes, Diabetic Neuropathy and Inflammation. Magnesium oil has also been shown to strengthen teeth enamel.

MiSMo Magnesium Gel Forte is a body lotion fortified with MSM. The Magnesium Gel Forte delivers minerals to aid any painful areas you may have. Our own team members have experienced their own ‘little miracles’ using this product, including the pain relief and decrease in swelling from a sprained ankle within hours of application and relief from muscle soreness after an intense exercise session. What a relief for an unseasoned cyclist to be climbing stairs by the pair after cycling 30km the day before!

What is Baltic Amber?

Many people don’t realise that amber is actually tree resin, not a stone. More specifically, it is the fossilized resin from an extinct species of trees, and is millions of years old!

What makes Baltic Amber special?
Baltic Amber has an active ingredient called Succinic Acid, which has been known to have many medicinal qualities. Succinic Acid is a natural analgesic that assists with pain relief.

Succinic acid is now produced commercially and is approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration.

Baltic Amber teething necklaces have been a source of traditional healing passed on for many generations and are widely used and treasured throughout Europe as unparalleled alternative medicine with proven health benefits.

Baltic amber in ancient times
While some of us here in Australia may think that amber necklaces are quite a new thing, even in ancient times infants were given amber necklaces to wear.

Amber was thought to contain magical powers, and it was widely known to have healing properties. Besides the healing properties, infants were given the necklaces to guard against baby swapping, offer protection from evil forces, and help against witchcraft!

Ancient Germanic tribes such as the Goths, Nordic peoples, Celts, Romans, Greeks, Arabs and Chinese, all valued amber for its beauty and protection.

Amber necklaces as a baby teething remedy
Baltic Amber is popular with baby teething products as it helps with pain relief, it has a calming affect and it stimulates the thyroid to assist with the redness and drooling associated with teething.

Baltic Amber necklaces are made for wearing, not for chewing. By wearing Baltic Amber close to the skin, the amber produces an oil (rich in Succinic Acid) which your skin then absorbs into the body.

Baltic Amber teething necklaces are the ideal solution when you choose to care for your baby in a natural way.

Silicone Teething Necklaces
It’s a well known fact that babies and toddlers love to chew when they are teething.

They will chew on anything they can get their hands on! Our necklaces are designed so that they can have a safe and soft product to chew on when teething.

These necklaces also provide a stimulating object for babies to play with while breastfeeding.

Not only functional, these necklaces are fashionable and look great with any outfit. It can be very difficult for mums to wear long necklaces or jewellery with babies and toddlers, as they love to grab everything and can very quickly break an expensive piece of jewellery.

Our silicone teething products are made with the highest quality 100% food grade silicone, and are guaranteed to be BPA and PVC free.

All Beauty of Amber silicone necklaces have been tested and are fully compliant with Australian & New Zealand Standards (AS/NZS IOS 8124-1:2010).

Why choose Beauty of Amber?
Beauty of Amber specialise in Baltic Amber teething products, all of which are hand-crafted and made with authentic Baltic amber. Our genuine Baltic Amber is of the highest quality and sourced only from the Baltic Regions of Europe. We also have an extensive range of Silicone teething necklaces.

We are passionate about natural alternatives when dealing with the pain associated with teething, and offer excellent customer service.

Shrink Wrap Film – Presentsation Counts

Manufacturers across the divide continue to produce quality products. We are all too familiar, with the attractive transparent packaging of toys, imported fruits, clothes, pens amongst other things. Unlike the previous times, customers can still have a glimpse into their prospective purchases, carefully examining them without necessarily compromising their state or quality (food).

It is of note that, both polymers are ideal for different packaging purposes. The choice of shrink film is determined by the product, budget and level of technology the producer in question has.

The undeniable fact is, packaging being the cornerstone of branding and advertising can be responsible for high sales volume or the reverse. Manufacturers and producers alike are today faced with the tough task of choosing the ideal packaging material. In the end the functionality of the shrink wrap can only be determined by the manufactures and producers.

It is as a result of these demands that the skrink wrap film was developed. In the formative years; we were all accustomed to the brown paper bags which had our tree population on the decline. Subsequent move to the opaque store-name-christened polythene was a further disservice. Then came the perfect solution to all these problems, the shrink film.Initially, the shrink film was exclusively made from PVC (Polyvinylchloride).This is a plastic polymer (third most used plastic in the world) that had the capability of sealing products with a thin layer of plastic sheet. These sheets were often transparent to allow the customer have a view of the product.

The sheet would be wrapped over the product and passed over a heat tunnel or a heat gun. Normally, the length or circumference of the product would be measured, 10% of this value would be added then the sum is divided by two, this would give the size of PVC shrink wrapping to be used. PVC has the ability to shrink by 40% percent giving the packaging a tight grip of the product.

However, with time it was noticed that PVC could release small amounts of hydrogen chloride giving the products a characteristic smell in addition to poisoning. The sealers also would have small carbon deposits. The presence of a plasticizer in PVC had the drawback of hardening and shrinkage during cold weather and extreme stetching with subsequent temperature increases.

These drawbacks meant a suitable shrink film devoid of a plasticizer be developed. Polyolefin was found to have the packaging abilities of PVC but lacked the setbacks that faced the latter. It became a preferred choice of packaging. Offering a stronger seal and fewer odours. Its lack of plasticizer meant no physical changes to the shrink film. It would become the perfect storage solution; all weather .Lack of chlorine in its polymer meant no hydrogen chloride previously characteristic of PVC. Visit http://www.redblade.com.au/shrink-wrap-plastic-films.html for info about film options.

However, while its predecessor PVC enjoys machine compatibility and low cost purchases, polyolefin is the opposite, it remains relatively expensive and hard to use alongside machines.PVC on the other hand remains a suitable choice for manufacturers who don’t deal with edible products. Owing to its cheap price and machine compatibility it is a manufacturers darling.

Kit Homes Compared to Turnkey Homes

There is a major difference between kit homes and turnkey homes. Kit homes are built by an owner builder, one who wishes to build their own home. Whereas turnkey homes are built by professionals, so that the client does not need to be involved with the hundreds of steps and processes involved with building a new home. ”Turnkey” simply means that you, the client, can go to your brand new home, walk up to the beautiful front door and simply turn the key!

The process to become an owner builder is much more complicated than one might think. For instance, it’s a requirement of the Building Services Authority (BSA) that anyone who wishes to build or renovate their own home and spend over $11,000 must hold an owner builder permit, and these permits are only issued by the Building Services Authority once you’ve completed an owner builder course. The permits expire every 6 years.

Here are a few of the processes involved with building your own kit home; legal requirements, site preparation, footings and floors, wall construction, roof construction, windows and frames, doors, screens, wall finishes, ceilings, fixtures, plumbing, gas, electrical, draining, and then some landscaping to top it all off.
If you don’t have experience in all of these areas, building your own kit home could prove to be more challenging than you may think, especially tackling all the council codes, regulations and legal requirements!

We at Bush and Beach Home Builders are professionals at building sustainable homes. We know how stressful and overwhelming the process of building your own home can be, so let us do it for you! If you think assembling a piece of furniture is irritating, building a kit home is a hundred times more complicated. Instead, let us do the work for you so that all you have to do is turn the key and enjoy your unique, climate engineered Bush and Beach home.

Cladding Mackay – Consider Vinyl Cladding Over Painting

Over the past several decades, more and more people have become aware of the numerous benefits of modern vinyl cladding and started to use it instead of paint. Paint is a great choice if you plan on selling the house in the near future since it does not involve a major investment, but if you want to make your home more comfortable, then vinyl cladding is the best choice. The truth is that vinyl cladding does have a series of advantages that should be taken into account if you want to get the best quality for your money. Here you will find the most important benefits:

What Is Vinyl Cladding?
In order to fully understand its benefits, you must firstly know what vinyl cladding is. In a nutshell, this is a type of cladding made from PVC combined with several other substances that aim to increase durability. This material is fixed on the exterior of your home to improve its overall aspect and also for improving thermal performance. Paint, on the other hand, is used only for improving the aspect of your home and it does not improve the thermal performance of your house in any way.

This type of cladding is also very durable in the long run, unlike paint which peels off and loses its intensity thoughout the years. This is possible with the help of the acrylic components found in vinyl cladding, which help it stand the test of time – and weather! It does not rot or crust, and it can last for decades even in the harshest weather conditions.

One of the most important advantages of this type of cladding is that unlike paint, it is very easy to maintain in the long run, and it adds value to your home. Paint is difficult to maintain over the years as it can easily deteriorate, but fortunately this is not the case with this type of cladding: you can easily wash it with a sprayer and some mild detergent once in a while, and that is it! It is true that vinyl cladding does require an initial investment, but the quality and the comfort are certainly worth it. Besides, this will also lower your energy bills.

Vinyl cladding is undoubtedly one of the most affordable and versatile cladding options: you can easily adapt it in order to match the overall style of your home, no matter if you own a traditional or a modern house. All you need in order to make your home stylish and unique is some high-quality products and a little bit of creativity. Besides, it is so affordable that you can even clad your entire home with it without having to spend a little fortune!

Last but certainly not least, another great benefit of this type of cladding is that it comes with an important warranty that confirms the quality and the durability of the material. This warranty will give you the peace of mind you need: your investment is fully protected, should anything happen with the cladding.

In conclusion, these are the main advantages of vinyl cladding over painting. Painting may be cheaper, but it is less durable in the long run, it does involve some maintenance costs, it can easily peel off and it does not improve the thermal performance. On the other hand, vinyl cladding is extremely durable, affordable, easy to maintain, it adds extra style to your home and it improves thermal performance as well.
