Vitamin C

0 Comment

I still distinctly remember first learning about the discovery of vitamin C in preventing scurvy. So distinctly I remember where I was sat, the pictures on the pages, the feeling of the book and its white hardback cover, and the placement of the paragraphs on the pages. This is especially odd, as I was not a reader […]

Vitamin A: Vision of the Night

0 Comment

A brief history… Deficiency of vitamin A has a recorded history dating back to Hippocrates (“let food be thy medicine”) and even the Egyptians, with Liver being a therapeutic food for centuries owing to its abnormally high vitamin A content – whether anyone knew that it was the vitamin A doing the work or not!

5) Eat Less Salt

0 Comment

5) Eat less salt. Salt contributes to high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure… but how? Firstly, the kidneys are our filtration system. Our blood will flow through them constantly, where they will then determine whether we are dehydrated, over-hydrated, or if there is anything that needs to be removed from the blood […]

2) Eat Lots of Fruit and Veg

0 Comment

2) Eat lots of fruit and veg. Easier said than done, right? Wrong. I will admit that once upon a time, not so long ago, I did not eat anywhere near enough fruit and veg. There was one sentence in one book that completely turned my approach around, and it was as follows: ‘Food is […]

8 Basic Guidelines For Great Health

0 Comment

The UK. Britain. Good ol’ Blighty. This small collection of countries has been a global power since before your mum was born, and one of our greatest attributes is the food. Through invasion from the Vikings, the Romans, the Normans, and – in more recent years – immigration from the Jewish, the Italians, the Vietnamese, […]
