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:

Some studies say it’s much better than metformin. 

Zinc

There are so many symptoms of possible vitamin D deficiency, but I want to give you a few unusual ones you might not know about.

Would you ever imagine any of these could be as a possible result of too little vitamin D3?

SUGAR

Are you eating loads of sugar without knowing it?

If you are not buying everything fresh and cooking from scratch, it’s likely. Look at a few ways you might be sugar-coating yourself unawares.

Vitamin D can save your life

Yes, I believe vitamin D can save your life. Vitamin D is a true superstar which affects so much more than bones and teeth, such as the brain, immune system, hormones, cancer prevention and gene expression which all rely to some extent on Vitamin D.…

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:

Side Effects

I am still amazed every day by what my utterly amazing brand of Pure Hydrolysed Collagen I am bringing in is doing for me and for thousands of people around the country. It’s become so effective that many doctors are referring patients to this brand (which is the fastest growing brand of collagen in the country) but there ARE side effects!…

Sweetener

Product Information:

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. If eaten by the spoon it melts quickly in your mouth and tastes a lot like candy floss if you are old enough to remember that far back.…

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.…

Omega-3

According to Harvard research, this deficiency is one of the top 10 causes of death in USA. Omega-3 decreases risk of heart disease and stroke, depression, hypertension, ADHD, joint pain, arthritis, eczema, infertility, miscarriage, raised triglyceride levels (a heart disease marker) and dozens of other serious conditions.…

Alcohol

I know I know.  But I do get asked a lot about alcohol – all sorts of questions – you can imagine.  But before I even start, please know that this article is based on scientific evidence, I’m not out to spoil your fun, nor to judge you nor to stop you drinking! …

IRON

What Your Fingernails can Tell You about Your Health: Healthy fingernails should be pink with a touch of pinkish-white (moons) near the base. If your nails are dull-looking colour, or streaked with other colours, you may have a hidden health problem.…

  • Diabetes

  • Insulin resistance
  • NAFLD
  • PCOS
  • Hypertension
  • Dyslipidemia (raised cholesterol etc)

thyroid

If you have an underactive thyroid you will be interested in anything you can do to fix it, preferably without a drug.  Please read through the other blogs on ways to improve thyroid function to get a good overview – I’ve done quite a few thyroid posts. …

gelatine

What exactly IS gelatine anyway, and why the hype? It is a dried powder created from isolating and dehydrating parts of animals, including skin, bones and tissue. This might not sound too appetizing but it’s virtually colourless and tasteless – however it has amazing ‘powers’ of regeneration for the body. …
