Nutrition and health go hand in hand

Good nutrition is essential to good health.

We believe that wellness and good health ought to be our normal condition. Our bodies are designed to stay healthy, provided we give them the right tools, but making the best choices is not easy.

In fact, even when we try to choose well, we are often stymied by what's available, how fresh it is and how it was grown, harvested and stored.

The challenges of modern life have created abnormal pressures, and the foods that we find in shops and supermarkets often lack nutritional value. That’s when our intake can fall short, and disease can get a foothold.

Common health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, respiratory ailments, obesity and even cancer are now recognised as being largely due to lifestyle choices and the lack of adequate nutrients. Many of us are over-fed but undernourished - what a strange state of affairs!

Paying attention to our food choices will play a role in boosting our body’s natural ability to ward off disease and stay well. But for most people, with the hectic lifestyles that they lead, it is often necessary to support those choices with suitable nutritional supplements.
