Boost your immune system with BioCeuticals ArmaForce

In today’s society, our fast paced lifestyle and busy schedules mean that  we often forget to look after our bodies. Stress, lack of sleep, physical fatigue, unhealthy diets, and bad lifestyle habits can weaken our immune system and increase the risk of illness and infection. Lets face it – no one has time to be sick!

Maintaining your vitamin D levels

It’s a bit of a quandary – too much sun causes skin cancer, but not enough means inadequate vitamin D. How do we make sure we are getting enough, why is vitamin D so important and how do our needs change as we age?

Fish oil – not all are created equal

Fish oils are very popular supplements in the developed world. With increased incidence of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and mental health in the general population, more people are looking at fish oils as a natural solution to support their health. But the fish oil market can be rather overwhelming – with hundreds of different types, strengths and brands of fish oils, it can be difficult to navigate and a challenge to know what you’re buying and if it’s the most suitable and the best quality. All fish oils are NOT created equal!

Skinny fat – are you fat on the inside?

A interesting fact – thin people can sometimes carry the more detrimental kind of fat – and not know it.It’s not uncommon for people who look slim and healthy to be collecting unhealthy (and potentially dangerous) amounts of internal fat around their organs. Doctors used MRI body scanners to show that even slim people can still have high levels of internal fat collecting around vital organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys and pancreas – visceral fat. These people, sometimes known as ‘skinny-fats’ could be putting their health at risk.
