Healthy Ageing 

In many parts of the modern world, life expectancy has increased more than ever before and more people are living to a ripe old age! Being pro-active about looking after your health will help to ensure a fulfilling and active life when it is time to enjoy those golden years.

Also - more than ever before, fast foods and nutrient deficient foods are more readily available, and maybe too convenient for busy people to access. It is therefore very important to prioritise a plan to acheive a healthy diet, balancing good proteins, good fats and high fibre carbohydrates which are rich in nutrients and antioxidants. This will optimize every day good health and energy, and will also help to protect our cells and tissues for better health in older age. A good way to ensure an adequate intake of a wide range of nutrients is to supplement your diet with a multivitamin and an antioxidant. 

We recommend the following supplements to enhance a healthy diet, but especially, if your diet is not so good!

Radiance AlphaProtect Alpha Lipoic Acid is called the "Universal" Antioxidant as it is Both Fat and Water Soluble, Can Travel to Any Cell in the Body and is One of Nature's Most Powerful Free Radical Fighters. A potent antioxidant in its own right, it also "recycles" other antioxidants such as vitamins E and C, Co-Q10 and glutathione, so they can continue to protect our cells against free radical damage. Alpha lipoic acid has a unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, therefore helping normalise oxidative stress in the brain, and protecting against neurological problems. Alpha lipoic acid has been approved in Germany for use by GPs in support of patients with diabetic neuropathy.

Radiance Multi Power Combines a Broad Range of High Quality, Carefully Selected Nutrients Which Are Easily Absorbed and Assimilated by the Body They Work Together Synergistically to Help Bridge the Nutrient Gaps Occurring in Our Modern Day Diet

Ethical Nutrients Super Multi Plus Contains a Balanced Combination of Nutrients Which Work Together Synergistically to Help Boost Our Modern Day Diets With Sufficient Micronutrients Needed By the Body For Optimal Functioning. PLUS, it Also Contains the Herbs Milk Thistle, Which Assists with Detoxification Processes, and Siberian Ginseng, an Adaptogen, Which Helps Our Body's to Cope with Stressful Situations.
