  • What importance does alkalinity have for your body?

    We have all experienced that acidic sensation in our stomachs, for some this is a daily struggle, leaving the problem untreated can lead to an unhealthy environment in which illnesses can develop due to the excess gastrointestinal acid. When our bodies produce excess gastrointestinal acid our body takes the essential minerals from our vital organs and bones to neutralise the acid and remove it from the body, this is our natural defence mechanism, however with this natural process comes other problems, our calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium levels can begin to run severely low, leading to future problems such as acidosis if not monitored carefully.

  • 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.

  • Vitamin D

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

    But what supplement will you go for?
    Surely the simple answer is - one that will work.

  • 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%.
