collagen

Collagen declines with age, and for this reason research into collagen has exploded in the past few years.  I decided a some years ago to womble around and look at what’s available in the collagen line, and sadly I was flabbergasted at the additives and all I saw in the products on the shelves. 

Paprika

I’ve just brought in a pile of the most marvellous organic and conventional (but ALL non-irradiated) herbs and spices.  Why? Because I don’t trust those I buy off the shelf! Simple.  They could be, stale, ‘cut’ with cornflour or wheat starch, heaven knows what else, and what kind of conditions are they dried in? 

Berberine complex packaging

 

Berberine is one of the most exciting natural products in current medical research and has nothing short of amazing properties. 

Other than for weight loss, it’s a powerful:

  • Anti-viral
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-bacterial

Berberine is most commonly taken for

  • Weight Loss
  • Powerful anti-ageing properties on skin

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Dysglycaemia
  • Reduces Insulin Levels
  • High Cholesterol
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Immune system strength

 

  • Get back to basics: eat a healthy diet, get enough sleep
  • Take Vitamin C – I recommend Ester C, Scorbi-Cee and Super-Cee

  • Find ways to relieve your stress
  • Work on your weight to remain at a good, constant weight
  • Worth repeating – take plenty of vitamin C daily to avoid oxidative stress.
