Solgar Full Spectrum Curcumin

Curcumin supports joint, brain and immune health. One of the challenges with curcumin is that there’s a limit to how much your body can absorb and actually use. Solgar takes bioavailability and absorption to a whole new level.

Unlike regular curcumin powder, Solgar starts with a 95% curcumin extract which is purified and concentrated from native turmeric root. Solgar surrounds and encapsulates standardized curcumin extract with microscopic, “water-loving” spheres called micelles. Micelles make the difference in absorption and are so microscopically small that they allow curcumin to be readily passed into the bloodstream.

Faster absorbed, better absorbed, and longer lasting than ever before◊—Full Spectrum Curcumin. More…Better…Faster… 185x greater bioavailability.

Pic’s Boysenberry Jelly

We know Pic’s makes seriously good peanut butter but we think it’s met its match with their Boysenberry Jelly. You may ask what peanut butter makers are doing messing around with berries?! Well they’re making jam but they don’t call it jam because it hasn’t got enough sugar!! What it has got is A LOT of boysenberries.

The boysenberries come from the boysenberry centre of the Universe aka Nelson. They’re extraordinarily nutritious and they go really well with peanut butter!

This is seriously tasty ‘not jam’…best served cold with Pic’s Peanut Butter.

Tom & Luke Snackaballs

Tom & Luke want to make the world a healthier, happier place, starting with the food you use to fuel your body. With Easter just around the corner, Tom & Luke’s Chocolate Snackaballs are a great way to get your chocolate fix without the guilt. Tom & Luke use the goodness of dates to sweeten thier Snackaballs, here’s three short reasons why they do this:

The power of antioxidants – dates have a higher concentration of polyphenols (plant-based macronutrients packed with antioxidants and beneficial phyto-chemicals), than other suitable dried fruits such as figs or plums. Antioxidants protect our cells from damage caused by free-radicals which are linked in studies to the risk of diabetes, Alzheimer’s and some cancers.

The goodness of fibre – fibre is beneficial for digestive and bowel health. It also slows digestion which lowers the glycaemic index (GI) helping to prevent blood sugar spikes. By slowing digestion, Tom & Luke Snackaballs will have less impact on blood sugar levels than traditional chocolates made with refined sugar.

Bone health – dates contain beneficial minerals including phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium which all help bone health.
