collagen

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?

Vitamin D3

Here are just a few more great benefits of Vitamin D3 Premium:

  • Supports intestinal permeability and manages Zonulin levels
  • Enables normal mineralization of bones and teeth
  • Enhances insulin production and supports beta cells in the pancreas
  • Supports emotional health and cognitive function

There are too many to mention (see earlier post), but it’s nice to know more of the amazing benefits of Vitamin D3 – SO important for respiratory function too.

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.

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.…

health fibre

There are 2 schools of thought about fibre, but let’s be clear – the human body is designed to use fibre. The more healthy fibre you get in your diet, the better your digestive system functions.

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.

There really is NOTHING like Vitamin C, there really isn’t:

  1. Powerful Immune Stimulant
  2. Lowers Hypertension according to studies
  3. Fights Against Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
  4. Protects Against Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia
  5. Fights Type 2 Diabetes
  6. Used in Cancer Prevention especially cancers of the oesophagus, oral cavity, stomach, and pancreas.
Joint pain

For probably 27 years or more I have recommended and used this particular anti-inflammatory for joints in my patients. It has consistently been enormously successful. It takes away pain all while healing joints.…

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.

Together with the sugar myth (that it’s not fattening), the calorie myth (that eating less calories causes weight loss), the cholesterol myth, the pH myth and dozens of others, comes the saturated fat myth.
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.

Did you know your chances of osteoarthritis is over 85% after the age of 70? You might be thinking “I’ve got a long way to go to 70!” but what you do NOW determines the health of your bones, cartilage and tendons later on.

Maxifos powder in packaging

MaxiFOS ‘feeds’ the friendly bacteria, but it does so much more:

  • reduce the growth of unfriendly bacteria
  • maintains regular bowel movements
  • manages healthy cholesterol & triglyceride levels
  • helps regulate healthy blood sugar levels

Almost ALL individuals are deficient in this mineral – try it yourself for great results

Below I have attached my list of Weight loss tips to help anyone struggling as weight loss is not easy.

  1. Eat a high-protein breakfast. It is the best way to reduce cravings throughout the day (my ‘new’ favourite brekkie is sautéed chicken livers, scrambled egg, rocket and cherry tomatoes)
  2. Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juice.
Coconut flour packet

Everyone’s nutritional needs and definitions of “healthy” are different, but there are many health benefits to cooking and baking with coconut flour, especially when it’s organic. I have the MOST delicious organic coconut flour in right now, and I’m baking all sorts of things with it!

Glutamine BFS

Weight loss seems so easy for some people and so difficult for others – I hope this will be helpful if you are one of the ones who struggle.

I brought in a very high grade glutamine which I adore – it has so many incredible benefits, but when you are overweight, your body needs more glutamine than it can make.

supplement pills

Many people take nutritional supplements, mostly to manage deficiencies. You don’t have to take things at a specific time but the most important thing is that you take them consistently. However, there are some it’s best to take at specific times of the day.
