  • How Milk Thistle Protects your Body Did you know there are now over 80,000 industrial chemicals found in everyday products, with 1000 new ones introduced each year? Only a fraction have been tested for safety in humans, and this affects our liver’s ability to protect us. Milk Thistle is one of the most powerful ways you can protect your liver. Here’s how: • It is your body’s primary organ of detoxification • Milk thistle extracts is the liver’s most potent defence against toxins • Research shows it also protects against atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes • Performs over 300 critical metabolic functions • Detoxifies drugs and alcohol, hormones and antibiotics • Can protect against mycotoxins and mushroom-based poisons • Regenerates the liver • Protects against fatty liver and cirrhosis • A powerful glutathione precursor, the most important antioxidant of all • A liver anti-inflammatory • Protects against liver damage • May protect against Alzheimer’s – prevents amyloid-beta deposition in the brain • Reduces elevated liver enzymes (AST and ALT) in NAFLD and AFLD • Protects against nerve damage and abnormal brain ageing • Protects against cardiovascular disease • May prevent weight gain, facilitate weight loss • Reduces LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, boosts HDL levels • Lowers blood sugar and HbA1c • May help in kidney complaints • Chemo protective; prevents metastatic activity (cancer spread) • Helps to mitigate side effects of chemo and radiation treatment • Powerful anti-ageing supplement • May help menopausal symptoms • Regulates hormones When the liver can’t effectively neutralize and dispose of toxins, they can accumulate in the liver and in body fat, or circulate in the bloodstream – ultimately ending up in bones, lymph or brain. Milk thistle extracts can arrest and even reverse liver damage from toxins. Over 1000 different prescription and over-the-counter drugs have been associated with liver damage. Milk Thistle eases NAFLD and improves cholesterol profiles in diabetic patients The liver also contributes to detoxification by promoting the production of glutathione, the body’s ‘master’ antioxidant. Although every living cell in the body is needs glutathione, the liver contains and needs so much more of this disease-fighting substance than any other organ or tissue in the body. However, the body’s stores of glutathione are not unlimited. If glutathione in the liver is completely overwhelmed – as occurs in an overdose of a toxic substance such as acetaminophen – liver failure (and possibly, death) can result. WEIGHT AND FAT IN THE LIVER In addition to protecting against drugs and chemicals, Milk Thistle helps to alleviate damage from excess calories and carbohydrates – and binging. With the ability to actually stop fat from lodging in the liver, Milk Thistle has been acknowledged in several studies as an inexpensive, non-toxic adjunct treatment for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Milk Thistle also greatly benefits diabetics. Directions: 1 Capsule 1 to 3 times a day. Capsules are Halaal and Kosher Certified
  • Benefits of Magnesium Chelate: New Chelated Magnesium Premium is now TWICE as strong as it has 100mg elemental magnesium per capsule instead of 50mg.  Therefore take only 2 (up to 3) daily as needed instead of 4-5. Magnesium is one of the most under-rated minerals in terms of its importance in human nutrition. It is an essential nutrient and is required for the maintenance of some of the most basic functions of life. Crucial organs, such as the heart, brain, and kidneys are dependent upon it. A lack of magnesium is associated with a variety of diseases affecting these organs, including: • coronary artery disease • hardening of the arteries • high blood pressure • heart arrhythmia • kidney stones • kidney infections • pyelonephritis • depression and anxiety • Alzheimer’s disease • Parkinson’s disease. And it’s used in over 600 biochemical functions in the body, including: • Sugar and fat metabolism • Neurotransmitter synthesis • Digestive enzyme synthesis • Digestion of starches and sugars • Hormone and protein synthesis • Muscle contraction • Arterial wall contraction/relaxation • Stomach acid production • Bowel motility, regularity • Cellular energy production Dosage: 2-3 capsules per day Capsules are halaal and kosher certified
  • Getting enough of, or being deficient in Vitamin K2 can be a serious situation, to the point of developing heart disease or having a stroke. It may not manifest with any symptoms either which can be difficult. But the benefits of taking a supplement are nothing short of incredible. Here are a few of a LONG list: • Improves bone density – K2 directs calcium into bone • Enhances remineralisation of bone reducing osteoporosis • Improves mineralisation of teeth, lowering risk of cavities • K2 reduces PMS, cramps, menstrual pain and bleeding • Regulates the function of your hormones • Helps prevent heart disease especially calcification of the arteries • Improves brain function • Maintains healthy gums and teeth • Directs calcium to the bones, not kidneys to form kidney stones for example, or the heart thereby preventing atherosclerosis • Improves and enhances exercise performance • Promotes healthy blood sugar levels • Evidence of it being an anti-carcinogen If you would like to read more about the benefits of Vitamin K2, please read the blog article here 
  • Zinc is a nutrient known to benefit the immune system, and deficiency of zinc impairs the capacity of many different immune cells to carry out their functions. Studies have shown that zinc may reduce the risk and duration of infections such as pneumonia, the common cold, and ‘flu, especially in children and the elderly. Zinc plays a central role in T cell-mediated function and immune response to infectious disease.
  • 100g An excellent, top-quality prebiotic powder to use therapeutically alongside the MaxiBiotic range for extra benefit, FOS is a sweet fibre (but has no sugar) and is very easy to use therapeutically whether in drinks, on it’s own or sprinkled over something to give a sweet taste.  This is a soluble fibre and creates an excellent and healthy environment for the probiotics to implant, while improving overall colon ecology and digestive health. Probiotics and Prebiotics both:
    • Encourage fat metabolism
    • Dramatically improve intestinal function
    • Reduces levels of fat in the blood
    • Encourage blood sugar regulation

  • 30 capsules DESCRIPTION: Pelargonium is one of the most effective of all herbal medicines for colds, sore throat, sinusitis and acute bronchitis, and it’s extracted from a South African plant, Pelargonium sidoides. It is an antiviral, antibacterial and increases the activity of white blood cells which target and destroy infection. It also improves lung function by blocking adhesin molecules which bacteria stick to in the lungs, preventing infection and helping to clear it faster. It has been found in trials to improve acute bronchitis, cough, headache and nasal discharge. Acute rhinosinusitis and the common cold also respond dramatically – most effective if you start it at the first sign of either (sore throat, runny nose, sneezing etc). Continue to take this for 3-5 days until the virus has gone. It has also been shown to be beneficial in: • Laryngitis • Acute sinusitis (bacterial) • Tonsillitis • Asthma Selenium forms an integral part of at least 25 human proteins, including the selenoenzymes – powerful antioxidants which protect tissues from metabolic damage. Selenium enhances the action of a liver enzyme (P450) involved in detoxifying cancer-causing chemicals, is involved in the repair of damaged genes and the interconversion and deactivation of thyroid hormones. It’s needed for normal cell growth and immunity, protects against a range of degenerative diseases such as hardening and furring up of the arteries, emphysema, liver cirrhosis, cataracts, arthritis, stroke and heart attack. Within the EU, the authorised nutrition and health claims for selenium includes contributing to: • the maintenance of normal hair • the maintenance of normal nails • the normal function of the immune system • normal thyroid function • protection of cells from oxidative stress. • normal sperm formation Dietary sources of selenium: The best food source of selenium is Brazil nuts. Selenium is also found in fish, poultry, meats (especially game), mushrooms, onions, garlic, broccoli and cabbage. However South African soil is extremely deficient in selenium so it’s unlikely you will get enough from food. Taking a daily supplement is one way to protect yourself. L-Lysine is known to help build collagen in the skin and banish acne, cold sores and fights hair loss. It is also extremely beneficial for the heart and prevents atherosclerosis Zinc, Vitamin A and Vitamin E are all powerful immune stimulants, and are intricately involved in the repair and maintenance of skin and lips. Each capsule contains: L-Lysine 200mg Zinc 15mg Pelargonium 50mg Selenium 60mcg Vitamin A 2000IU Vitamin E 20mg Dosage: 1 capsule 1-3 times daily after food
  • 300g Powdered high-strength vitamin C This is an easy powder to pop into drinks or onto food, and has only a very slight taste.
  • Super Cee has a base of ascorbic acid, but it is buffered or chelated meaning it is joined to a sodium (mineral) molecule, making it much easier on the gut. You can probably take a lot more of this too before you will get diarrhoea if you are looking to take a lot for any reason – each teaspoon is 5000mg and a teaspoon a day will be perfect in water. This is the one to take if you have digestive problems as it is milder, but no less effective. Both are water-soluble and BOTH are highly effective.

Psyllium husk Benefits Firstly, our psyllium husks are organic, and tasteless. Psyllium has become the “go-to” fibre for anyone on a low-carb diet or for those who safely want to take a non-gluten-containing fibre.  Psyllium will not contribute to weight gain, and if needed, psyllium is great for constipation and diarrhoea, feeds the beneficial flora, and is non-addictive.  For some people, it’s difficult to get enough fibre in their diet so psyllium is an easy way to take care of this problem. It reduces appetite without over-stimulating the nervous system; a much healthier approach than formulas containing ephedra, mineral oils or drugs, all of which may cause dependence. Psyllium is the husk of the seed of the Plantain and is a top herb used in weight control and for general intestinal health. It contains a spongy fibre which reduces appetite, improves digestion and cleanses the system, making it an excellent choice. For every 100g psyllium you receive 71g soluble fibre; a similar amount of oat bran would contain only 5g of soluble fibre, be much higher in carbohydrates, have gluten present, and possibly make you tired an hour after eating it. Scientists learned recently that soluble fibre possesses unique effects on metabolism – taking some ½ an hour prior to meals will cut down on the appetite (always have plenty of water with your psyllium powder) and it provides a feeling of fullness that is helpful to some before meals. Psyllium is one of the simplest, healthiest and most effective herbs for weight control. Psyllium is extensively used for irritable bowel syndrome (a disorder with alternating bouts of diarrhoea and constipation) and as this herb will produce easy bowel movements with a loose stool, it is used by patients with anal fissures (cracks in the skin near the anus) and haemorrhoids - often recommended following anal or rectal surgery, during pregnancy and as a secondary treatment in certain types of diarrhoea.  It is completely safe if plenty of water is taken with it, and being organic, our psyllium is of the highest quality. Psyllium also has the advantage over other sources of fibre of reducing flatulence and bloating. Studies and clinical reports suggest that psyllium may enhance the sensation of fullness and reduce hunger cravings. For those simply wishing to improve digestion and intestinal tract health, a single teaspoon per day is all that is needed.
