Domestic Diva Awards is The Singapore Women’s Weekly’s yearly highlight of the best products that help us live, work and eat better. This year, over 800 products across 101 food categories, ranging from cooking essentials to festive snacks and vitamins & supplements were nominated. The winners were decided through public voting in an online survey, and Editor’s Pick, recognising the best in their fields.
If Covid-19 has taught us anything, it is that we cannot take our health for granted.
And this perhaps has manifested in different ways for all of us. Washing our hands regularly or using alcohol-based hand sanitisers become a regular fixture in how we incorporate personal hygiene practices into our lifestyles. Being more conscious of what we eat and how much we eat is another feature perhaps as well as taking steps to be more active, which can be as simple as taking the stairs than the lift.
Another way you can boost your healthful regime is to add vitamins and supplements to the diets of you and your family. Popping a multivitamin or vitamin C could help you feel better and supplement the nutrients you might not be getting (especially if you aren’t having a balanced diet). Singaporeans have also been found to not consume enough calcium, according to Healthhub, which is essential for strong bones. Probiotics too have been touted to give your digestive system a spur as our modern diets sorely lack fermented foods.
Adults and children alike can also benefit from consuming fish oils and omega-3s, which has benefits beyond just improving brain prowess. Meanwhile, collagen and biotin supplements have been marketed to bolster the quality of our skin, hair and nails and who doesn’t want that?
