Microbiome

What is Human Microbiome? And is your gut microbiota causing weight gain?

A microbiome is a community consisting of trillions of microorganisms (also called microbiota or microbes) of thousands of different species that inhibit our bodies.
Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin needed for blood formation, nerve and brain function. Your body doesn’t make vitamin B12, you have to get it from animal-based foods or from supplements.
This should be done on a regular basis as your body doesn’t store vitamin B12 for a long time.
Zinc
WHY ZINC IS CRITICAL TO COLLAGEN ABSORPTION?
and what about VITAMIN C?
The wonderful thing about taking PURE Hydrolysed Collagen, is that it is easily absorbed, instantly, from the stomach – however there’s a caveat – you need to have the right environment to do so.
Colds and Flu

Many studies have explored the relationship between taking Vitamin D3, Omega-3 fish oil and Vitamin C and the occurrence of colds and flu separately.

What was found with regards to Colds and Flu occurence is the following:

VITAMIN D3 ALONE.

Probiotic and Prebiotic

 Probiotic and Prebiotic?

Trusting Your Gut

In human intestines, there are many strains of two main species of friendly bacteria, Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.  Probiotics and Prebiotics both help those friendly bacteria, but in different ways:

What is the Difference between Probiotic and Prebiotic?

Bone broth for immune support – So how does it really work?

Bone broth is a superfood that can strengthen your immune system. It really goes to show grandmas chicken soup to fight was spot on with scientific data now able to back it up!

Speed up your healing – dump gluten and increase protein

Lack of essential and bioavailable proteins are a major contributing factor to persistent illness especially in those with gluten sensitivity. Protein is the main ingredient your body uses to build immune antibodies as well as heal inflamed structural tissues and muscles.…

Nutrient - Vitamin K2

WHY YOU DON’T WANT TO TAKE CALCIUM

Calcium’s great for bones, but not for arteries!  What you are told is that you need calcium for strong bones.  Yes, you do – but not in supplemental form, and not without vitamin K2 being present. …

Various Collagen Products

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

 

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
  • Anti-inflammatory for skin and entire body
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Dysglycaemia
  • Reduces Insulin Levels
  • High Cholesterol
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Some studies say it’s much better than metformin. 

Zinc

Vitamin D has been all over the news in the health community and even mainstream medicine over the past 6 months with Covid-19 front and centre. If you have good levels of vitamin D3, your chance of a healthy heart, immune system and ability to avoid or get through an infection quickly is vastly improved.

AV/AT

AV/AT has been found to be a powerful potential inhibitor of this horrible virus. We are watching decimate economies and lives globally. A paper published a few months ago gives enormous hope for natural treatment of viruses.

Maxifos powder in packaging

MaxiFOS is the ideal food for your microbiome. It is a PREbiotic, not a PRObiotic, although both are important. Prebiotic fibre resists digestion, instead heading to your colon where it creates those awesome energy-producing short chain fatty acids.

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 
  • Take Vitamin D3 Premium – one a day
  • Take immune-supporting nutrients like a good B Complex and Zinc 
  • Exercise a little each day – even just a walk improves immunity
  • 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.
Immune Support

People ask me continually how to protect themselves during this time of Covid-19.  With the latest more infectious variant coupled with all the end of year visitors among us from all over the world, increased infection rates are of concern.…

Vitamin D

While the world experiences what is being termed a ‘second wave’ – and in some parts a third wave. We are hoping that doesn’t happen here in South Africa. Vitamin D3 sufficiency is one small way to improve your immune system.

Nutrient - Vitamin K2

Did you know this about Vitamin K2?

Both on Vitamin A and Vitamin K2 have synergistic effects on MINERAL absorption (think calcium magnesium, zinc etc). Dr Weston Price in his day used a combination of cod liver oil (Vitamins A & D) and grass-fed butter (has Vitamin K2) to heal CAVITIES, reduce oral BACTERIA counts, and cure numerous other afflictions in his patients.…

This post is long overdue … I know this because I get the same question asked of me every day.

With the new interest in collagen and the dramatic testimonies coming from even just a very short time of using my Pure Hydrolysed Collagen or Gelatine, I’ll tell you how to take it.

COVID-19

The corona virus or Covid-19 wreaking havoc in the world today belongs to a family of viruses called RNA viruses.

All viruses exist in a twilight world between the living and the non-living in that they cannot live by themselves:

They must infect a living host cell of a plant or animal within a short period of time to survive.…

Vitamin C's

Many of you have asked me what the difference is between the various Vitamin C’s.

So here’s a simple explanation:

Scorbi-Cee is ascorbic acid or plain vitamin C. This is a very inexpensive and effective powder.…
