Selenium

Selenium is important for thyroid function, immunity and powerful cancer preventative nutrient.

It is a mineral, and due to poor farming methods has become very thin on the ground (no pun intended) when it comes to our food supply.

Knowing Your Dosage

The human body requires a variety of essential vitamins. Although a healthy diet should provide most of the vitamins that we need, taking vitamin supplements helps to fill in for dietary shortcomings or aid in enhancing well-being.…

Protein
Here are some tell-tale signs you may not be getting enough protein in your diet.
If you suspect you are not eating enough you can increase your meat, fish, eggs and poultry. Protein is essential to prevent muscle loss, and stay alive and well.
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.

In spite of the pandemic of people suffering from adrenal fatigue, there is still no official ‘diagnosis’ or even recognition in the medical community, whereas natural health practitioners recognize it as adrenal insufficiency or ‘burnout’ due to chronic stress.
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.

Black Friday Collagen

In the same way that eggs ‘bind’ cake ingredients together when you make a cake, so collagen is the ‘glue’ or binding agent which holds your cells together so effectively. Collagen enables your skin to move flexibly, and to bounce back into place when you press it.…

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.

chopping garlic

The benefits of garlic are potent, irrefutable and evident. 

Benefits of Garlic:

  1. It’s a natural ANTIBIOTIC – as it contains allicin which fights bacteria and infections. Fabulous for opening clogged sinuses too
  2. Reduces CHOLESTEROL – and significantly lowers both LDL and Triglycerides
  3. It’s a powerful ANTIOXIDANT – some say the world’s most powerful one.
supplements example

Lots of people ask me the Best time to take your supplements – so I hope this helps:

  • Vitamin Bs or Vitamin C – anytime you like, with or without food
  • Fat soluble nutrients (A, D, E, K2) – best with food and fats
  • D3 & K2 – try not to take these with dairy as the calcium will block uptake
  • Greens are best with fats, as chlorophyll is fat soluble
  • Enzymes just before you eat
  • Herbs can be taken at any time
  • Electrolytes better on an empty stomach (your minerals)
  • Probiotics before bed on an empty stomach

Why nutritional supplements are beneficial:

  1. Food isn’t what it used to be – food comes from far away, irradiated, old, loses nutrients
  2. Digestion – it’s about more than digestion, it’s about what we eat, digest, absorb and assimilate so more nutrients may be needed
  3. Environmental toxins like sprays – reduces nutrient content
  4. Nutrients are lost by the way we prepare food or eating a lot of processed food
  5. Stress – if you are stressed you need more nutrition
  6. Disease prevention

So eat GOOD whole food, and take your supplements.
