  • Introducing Sugar Free Gummies, Multivitamins for Kids

    The world has changed. There’s no escaping it. Growing up in the 70s, 80s and 90s was like growing up in a parallel universe. Kids were encouraged to climb trees, play outside until dark with their friends, and spend hours and hours at the skate park or riding their BMX bikes. Kids were tough. Kids were fit and active. And they were much healthier in the decades before the rise of the internet, video games, Sky TV and takeaway delivery services. Continue reading

  • Let’s Talk About the Menopause

    Let’s face it, women have it tough. This isn’t a sexist thing or a man-bashing thing; a woman’s body really does have to work overtime during our lives. No wonder we need a little pampering every now and then!

Hello, menopause! Continue reading

  • Tips for Sleeping Well this Spring

    We all know that a good night’s sleep is essential for our physical and mental health. Great sleep helps us to decrease the risk of chronic conditions such as heart problems, blood pressure, diabetes, anxiety and depression.

  • The Benefits of Evening Primrose: Not Just a Pretty Flower!

    It's true, the Evening Primrose (Oenothera, if you want to get all Latin about it), is a lovely little yellow flower that can add the colour of sunshine to any garden. It can even be used to brighten up boring salads or use the flowers for cooking in an infused oil. But more often than not, this vibrant little plant is not harvested for its yellow blooms, but for its precious seed oil.

    The benefits of Evening Primrose, the seed oil, in particular, have been known for centuries. In fact, Native Americans used to use it to reduce swelling (amongst other things), and by the time it found its way across the pond to European shores, Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) was used to cure just about everything!

  • Tips to Combat Cold and Flu in February

    There is absolutely nothing worse than knowing that you’re coming down with a cold; tired and droopy eyes, a scratchy throat, and don’t even get us started on that constant, throbbing headache. A bad head cold, or even worse, flu, is enough to take down even the healthiest and strongest of us.
