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.

It can, according to a recent study.

There’s a pandemic on. Your job may be in jeopardy and life’s uncertain – we get that – but if it’s true that worry actively HARMS the brain, is it worth it?

Rosacea

Rosacea is a really nasty skin disorder affecting the curves and features of the centre of the face. It is often called acne rosacea.

It’s generally characterised by one or more of the following:

• Light to heavy facial flushing (erythema) which can be transient or permanent
• Papules and pustules

• Rhinophyma – where the nose thickens and becomes bulbous

Women of 30-50 are most often victims of this condition, and find it frustrating and embarrassing to deal with for obvious reasons.…

Sunflower oil

I have written about Sunflower oil many times so here’s one more time. You won’t escape Sunflower oil if you live in the western world. It’s cheap, freely available and found in every restaurant (and sadly a lot of homes) but is it healthy?…

Vitamin D can save your life

We Have No Unnecessary Body Parts

We Have No Unnecessary Body Parts. You probably know that there is a commonly held belief that there are ‘bits’ in our bodies we don’t need. Like our tonsils and adenoids, spleen, appendix, gallbladder, womb and ovaries after menopause.…

There is so much confusion today about fat but what we do know is fat is not the enemy.

Here are some GOOD fats you can use for different cooking methods:

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.

potassium

We usually think of potassium in terms of something we need to offset high blood pressure – which is true in one sense – but there is so much more to this interesting but very important mineral and this is just one small benefit.…

Magnesium Citrate vs Magnesium Chelate Premium

You’re probably wondering why I have two different kinds of oral magnesium now – the powdered Magnesium Citrate vs Magnesium Chelate Premium. Apart from the fact that some people like powders and others like capsules there are some subtle differences.…

How Cholesterol Helps your thyroid

This story starts with an unexpected main character so-called “bad” cholesterol. First we have to establish at the outset there is no such thing as ‘bad’ cholesterol.

What goes onto your fork and into your mouth can change your life, no matter what you are suffering from. While this can apply to every area of your life – weight loss, celiac disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis and auto-immune disease of every kind – it is particularly relevant to Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (HT).…

Gelatine

In days gone by, people got their gelatin regularly from bone broth which hardly anyone bothers to make anymore.  So, shouldn’t we take it?  There are so many benefits to taking it.  Gelatin is basically a cooked form of collagen (which you can use instead if you wish) – gelatin “gels” so you can make jelly and terrines etc so it’s great in baking/cooking, but collagen doesn’t gel.…
