Various Collagen Products

Spring is 3 weeks away…. Many people are battling with the effects of ‘lockdown weight’. Losing weight PROPERLY is so important. Especially if you want to keep it off but often it seems to take forever to lose those first 5kg.

You’ve probably heard of bile, but did you know it’s a ‘secret’ to successful weight loss?

Before we get into that though, bile’s a greenish-yellow liquid produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder and is released to assist digestion when you eat.

One of the most well-known spices to aid in weight loss is cinnamon. Here’s how it works:
1. Controls insulin levels (which means less fat is stored)
2.

You may not know this, but you can develop gallstones while you are trying to lose weight. If you don’t keep your gallbladder functioning normally allowing it to expel bile and emulsify fats, you could develop gallstones in your weight loss journey.…

Wedding Dress Diet

Let me start by saying that I am NOT in favour of fad diets, crash diets or anything that is unhealthy or extreme in any way, especially in the long term. However, there are those times in our lives when we absolutely have to lose a few kilos (and I stress a FEW, not 20!)…

This is a wonderfully unique, no-calorie, no-carb sweetener made from all natural ingredients. It has a wonderfully clean sweet taste with no artificial aftertaste whatsoever.

Eggs 1

I have to say the thing that really upsets me is to see people throw away a valuable, nutritional powerhouse in the egg yolk, and eat the useless egg white.  It’s sacrilege! People are just so confused about eggs as a whole (no pun intended), so let’s have a look at the science behind eggs.…

Akkermansia
