  • 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

  • Why is magnesium stearate in your supplements, and is it safe?

    As I walk down the isle of my local supermarket I take a look around and people doing their weekly food shop seem far more switched on as to what additives are best avoided and savvy shoppers (like my wife) take great delight reading food labels to make sure there are no added nastiness.

    But what about supplements? We are good at checking food labels but do you check your supplement labels and do you know what to look out for or what to avoid? Continue reading

  • You never hear of Eskimos with joint problems or arthritis

    Some time ago a good friend of mine said “you never hear of Eskimos with joint problems or arthritis, it’s down to the healthy fish oils high in omega 3 they eat, that’s why I take cod liver oil capsules every day”. I didn’t really think about what he said in any great depth, it was just one of those sentences where you just smile back a nod your head in agreement without really thinking it through, I then mentioned that Inuit’s have many, possibly over a hundred words for snow, but I later found out this is a common misconception, it’s the Sami an indigenous people in Sweden that have 300 words for snow.
