TV Presenter Anthea Turner Aims to Stay Super Fit in a Drive for Healthier Bones

Reading Time: 8 minutes


Fitness loving celebrity reveals her bone health scare and how she aims to continue her busy lifestyle and media career with the help of LithoLexal®‘s marine calcium product.

As a life-long advocate of health and fitness who has regularly exercised three to four times a week, taken a generic calcium supplement and eaten a healthy diet – television celebrity Anthea Turner doesn’t fit the stereotype of someone at risk of bone fractures and developing osteoporosis. However, the much-loved star, who has just turned 58 and shot to fame on Blue Peter and GMTV, has recently revealed she is at risk of developing the condition. In response, she has started a new regime and promotional campaign with bone health specialists, LithoLexal®, whose calcium products contain a more bioavailable form of the mineral, compared to less effective rock-based supplements. Turner is keen to highlight the hidden bone risks to otherwise very fit and healthy women – while also showing that the condition can be managed with the right support.
Furthermore, the star continues to enjoy a busy media career and she intends to do so while maintaining vibrant health and fitness.

Anthea’s Surprising Relationship with LithoLexal® Bone Health Brand Highlights Risk to Fit & Healthy Women

When Anthea Turner was approached by bone health specialists, LithoLexal®, as a potential brandambassador, the star reveals that she was unsure whether she was the ideal match. Indeed, having spent the last thirty years exercising and sticking to a healthy diet, she didn’t expect herself to be at risk of osteoporosis or bone fractures.  However, having talked to LithoLexal®‘s experts, who explained the fact that genetics, ageing, low BMI, menopausal changes, lack of sunlight and poorly-absorbed calcium supplements are among the chief factors that can affect bone integrity, Anthea was encouraged to undergo a DEXA bone scan to analyse her risk. And the results startled Anthea, who was found to have the condition of osteopenia (the precursor to osteoporosis), in her spine and hip: “As someone with a life-long passion for healthy eating, exercise and well-being, finding out my bone density was pre-osteoporotic was a bit of a shock.”  Following the scan, Anthea agreed to a challenge – team-up with the brand and supplement her diet with LithoLexal® Bone Health Osteoporotic – before having follow-up bone scans periodically. Worldwide, one in three women over 50 will experience osteoporotic fractures, as will one in five men.

Anthea Turner – Fitness for Life & Celebrity Status

 In addition to increasing the awareness of bone risks to the general public and hoping to reduce her own risk of osteoporosis, Anthea has another big reason to link-up with one of the world’s leading bone health brands – her life-long passion for exercise and her career in which looking and feeling a million dollars, is essential.

Indeed, having been in the spotlight for over 30 years, as a TV presenter, interiors expert and writer, Anthea has no plans to slow down, with recent stints on ITV’s Lorraine, This Morning, Celebrity Antiques Hunt and a plan to appear on Blue Peter’s 60th birthday anniversaries, all illustrating the star’s passion for work is as strong as ever.

Anthea puts her zest down to her passion for fitness and well-being, something she’s had a life-long interest in – illustrated by the success of her ‘Y Plan Fitness’ video, which sold over one million units and lead to other releases including ‘Body Basics’ and ‘Tone, Lift & Condition’. The star of the highly acclaimed BBC series Perfect Housewife says that, at age 58, she still performs Pilates, ballet as well as weight training twice a week; her appearance at the recent The Asian Awards 2018 in London, in a figure-hugging pink sequinned dress, belied her age by decades. Which is why the DEXA scan revealed a hidden health risk that the star is intent on fighting with the help of LithoLexal®: “I feel fantastic and don’t look or feel my age, but my DEXA scan shows that bone loss is a silent health issue that could have a dramatic impact on my life left undetected and untreated. After talking to the expert team at LithoLexal®, it was enlightening to hear that a simple supplement ritual can naturally help protect and hopefully increase my bone density when I get another scan after six months.”

LithoLexal®‘s range of bone health supplements contain a unique marine-derived calcium which is better absorbed than generic rock-based products, leading to research proven benefits on bone density, something Anthea is relying on to fight her risk and stay active: “My greatest fear is to be inactive, so I’m fully prepared to put up a fight on this one, encouraging others in the danger zone to do the same.”

LithoLexal® & Anthea Turner Team-up for Bone Health Campaign

LithoLexal®‘s announcement of teaming-up with Anthea Turner, will see the star feature prominently in their marketing drive. In addition to press, radio and point of sale material, Anthea will front a special booklet on bone health. Furthermore, as noted by LithoLexal®‘s Managing Director, Chris Keeble, one of the most exciting parts of the partnership, is the chance to see if taking LithoLexal® will actually increase Anthea’s bone density, when she undergoes follow-up DEXA scans:

“Anthea is the perfect ambassador to support our brand mission, which is to highlight the risks of bone loss in women, throughout their life, during and after menopause – and crucially, help them fight back and legitimately combat the issue. Many women will relate to Anthea, because despite living an extremely healthy lifestyle, she’s showing signs of weakening bones – so it’s a real chance for us to demonstrate that LithoLexal® genuinely works in the real world.”

Anthea Turner will be putting research proven LithoLexal® to the test by supplementing her diet with LithoLexal® Bone Health Osteoporotic, which contains uniquely-absorbed marine calcium,magnesium, Vercilexal® fish cartilage extract and Vitamin D.

LithoLexal® is available exclusively from Holland & Barrett: LithoLexal

How many times do you hear about ‘finding the one’ and ‘when you are least expecting it they will appear’.  It was certainly the case with me, and with the most important relationship of all, My Hairdresser.

At certain times in my life I have found a hairdresser who understands my hair, and it has lasted for several months or even years – until they leave or move away.  Then their successor who promises to deliver, lets you down, and you go on the search again.

After living in London for many years, and moving out to Buckinghamshire two years ago, I have been on a mission to find a suitable person to manage my rather tricky head of hair, and create a few miracles in the process.

From Toni & Guy to more ‘boutique’ hairdressers, I have tried them all, and it is actually six in total, and just when I had given up and decided it was me and not them, a miracle happened.

I walked into a hairdresser in Gerrards Cross called BROX as the owner Darren, was having an auction for his own Charity, Liberty’s Legacy, and I was donating a prize for the auction for him.

There was something about the way he said ‘Please come back I would like to do your hair’ that resonated with me, and although it took a few months, I did eventually go back and hey presto – I had found ‘the one’.

It was late afternoon, and once he had delivered THE HAIRCUT, the only people who remained were a few staff and Darren himself.  They all exclaimed how different I looked and how much younger I had become with this major transformation.

I naturally felt that they were being kind, or supporting their boss, but did see an amazing difference in the thickness and style of the hair as I flounced out of the Salon.

The following day I was visited by my family, and my daughter who takes no prisoners, commented on the youthfulness of the cut and that it really was the best hairdo she could remember me having.  Praise indeed, so it was not just a figment of my imagination.

The extraordinary difference with Darren is that he actually cares about each individual who walks into his salon, and each hair style is bespoke to the person standing in front of him, taking age, personality and lifestyle into consideration.

The added proof is actually in the type of clientele he attracts, from celebrities to film stars, especially as Pinewood is not far away and maybe because Gerrards Cross has been nicknamed The Mini Hollywood.  But I also did spot an elderly lady who he was kindly serving tea and biscuits to prior to her appointment, so he welcomes everyone equally.

BROX have only been in Gerrards Cross for three years, and his training was in London at one of the major Salons prior to that.

But if you are looking for ‘the one’, then why don’t you try Darren at BROX in Gerrards Cross. I know that some of our readers are scattered across the country, and so perhaps you are inspired and will start looking for your own ‘Brox’ or ‘Darren’ closer to home.  But for those of you not too far away, or even if you have a bit of a drive to get there, it would be time well spent, and unlike other relationships, I am willing to share.

Here is what Darren has to say

“Of course, quality is key and it is my intention to continue to grow the Brox business so that it is known for its attention to detail, personal client care, a warm and welcoming environment staffed by fully trained stylists offering a superb client experience that clients look forward to repeating many times.”

Set in the heart of Gerrards Cross, Brox is located on a bustling High Street with ample parking and the opportunity to shop from a variety of exclusive boutiques, plus the option to enjoy eating in the many cafes and restaurants nearby.

Check out Brox and see what they can offer you

Thanks to BROX we have a great prize of a FULL hair makeover to give away to one lucky person

Birth of a Cult: M.A.C From Wow to Now!

Birth of a Cult: M.A.C From Wow to Now!

Reading Time: 5 minutes


All Ages, All Races, All Sexes… A professional makeup brand setting trends backstage at fashion weeks around the world. Today, M·A·C means so many things to its millions of fans in every corner of the planet, but a global beauty phenomenon has to begin somewhere.

Make-Up Art Cosmetics started life in Toronto, Canada. Makeup artist and photographer Frank Toskan and salon owner Frank Angelo became frustrated by the lack of makeup that photographed well, so they decided to create their own. At first, they made the cosmetics in their kitchen and sold them straight from the salon to fellow makeup artists, as well as models and photographers. Soon, stylists and fashion editors got in on the action. As the magazine credits racked up and word-of-mouth popularity grew, the duo launched M·A·C in March 1984 from a counter in a Toronto department store.

Their approach was chic utility, with the makeup coming in black pots rather than compacts. While other major makeup brands at the time were predominantly skincare companies, M·A·C chose instead to establish itself as the ultimate colour authority. Professional makeup artists manned the counter, an industry first. One of the most popular offerings was an intense matte red lipstick, which got a boost with an appearance in a photo-shoot of the fast-rising Madonna.

The company took the industry by storm, offering a wide range of products that blended street savvy with glamorous style and panache. Behind the counter, the M·A·C approach was notably different. Rather than driving sales through traditional promotional techniques, M·A·C relied on the integrity of its carefully formulated product line. Adding to the image was a touch of outrageousness. A company that honours individuality and self-expression above all else, it brought a brilliant sense of drag and theatre into the sleek M·A·C stores and department store counters.

M·A·C is sold today in over 105 countries around the world. It remains committed to developing new categories, products and over 50 collections each year, all of which continue to serve the demand of consumers and professional makeup artists alike.

Collaborations with adored names from popular culture, art and fashion have included such names as Rihanna, Lorde, Proenza Schouler, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Brooke Shields. These continue to enhance M·A·C’s relevance and reach to existing fans as well as new ones, while our makeup Artists’ rock-steady presence backstage at over 200 fashion week shows around the world, working with names from Prabal Gurung to Vivienne Westwood, secures the envied status of M·A·C as the world’s leading beauty trendsetter.
