Additive Free, All Natural, Health Supplements

  • Are you ready for winter?

    As cold season encompasses Autumn, Winter and Spring we believe this blend of herbs could be beneficial to use for much of the year. Many herbs and natural compounds are traditionally associated with support during the Winter months. Lemon is a favourite, a staple that is highly recommended, but is probably taken once a cold has ‘taken hold’ as is the case with many products. So we researched to ascertain the best possible combination to strengthen the body’s defences and offer additional support before Winter infections burden us.

  • Vitamin D and Winter - what you need to know

    When the nights started drawing in and the winter sun, or lack of it took hold, you most likely thought back to the summers months of warm sunshine and lovely long summers days. When we were enjoying that warm sunshine we are all too aware of the risk of sunburn and related health issues but more often than not we took for granted that the sun plays an amazing role in providing our daily need of vitamin D via sunlight exposure. From March to September when the sun is at its peak our bodies can easily create vitamin D from direct sunlight but as the days shorten our ability to get enough vitamin D diminishes.

  • Vitamin D

    It is encouraging to hear that sometimes good advice is given from government agencies.

    Today we read that "everyone should take Vitamin D supplements in the autumn and winter" and some may need to take advantage of a supplement all the year round.

    But what supplement will you go for?
    Surely the simple answer is - one that will work.
    Therefore, it is always good to look for supplements that have no fillers, bulking agents, magnesium stearate or harmful additives.

  • NEW Turmeric Plus

    There are some amazing properties attributed to the humble Turmeric.
    These include: anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-aging, antidepressant and it has detoxification abilities.
    But, much of these benefits may be lost unless the body absorbs the active compound (called Curcumin). Studies have shown that curcumin has poor bioavailability due, it is thought, to the rapid metabolism in the liver and intestinal wall.
    However, there is a simple solution: Black Pepper. Or to be more precise: Piperine. Studies have shown that when humans were given curcumin with piperine it improved the bioavailability of the curcumin by 2000%.

  • Vitamin B3 and the niacin flush

    Niacin flush, what is it?

    After hearing about the “niacin flush” I wanted to find out more about it, and where better than to look online. After a short time I can across a website site by Dr Andrew Saul, in this was a fascinating article by Dr Abram Hoffer. In short, Dr Andrew Saul wrote a book about vitamin B3 called Niacin: The Real Story, co-written with Dr Abram Hoffer. The book details the early work of Dr Abram Hoffer in which he used niacin for schizophrenia patients and as an cholesterol treatment with great success, amazing indeed. Continue reading

  • Whats In Your Supplements?

    We think that all supplements should be additive free, without fillers, bulking agents, flow agents & anti-frictional agents, but why?

    One widely used additive is magnesium stearate, it has many uses, it can be used as a filler, a bulking agent, a flow agent & as a anti-frictional agent. There are studies & research that show some commonly used supplement additives affect the disintegration time (1). Other research indicates that specific additives may be immunosuppressive in some people (2).

    If there is any doubt or questions on the safety of such additives we think they should not be used, thats exactly what we do, we are proud of it & we hope you are too! Continue reading
