How To Choose And Use A Multinutrient

By Ellie Isom 2 months ago 7132 Views

Are you confused about multinutrients? Trying to decipher which one would be best for you, or if you actually need one? If chosen well, multinutrients can be an incredibly powerful tool to support many aspects of life, from stress, to immunity, and hormone balance. They can also support different life stages, such as fertility (male and female), pregnancy, and menopause. A carefully formulated complex containing therapeutic doses of nutrients that are easily absorbed and used by the body, is so much more than just a bog standard supplement.

Vitamin C Powder - Top Tips From Our Nutrition Team

By Marta Anhelush 2 months ago 6644 Views

Vitamin C has multiple benefits for our body, from supporting healthy skin and energy production to promoting a strong immune system. Whilst many foods contain vitamin C, it is increasingly evident, given the trials and tribulations of modern day living, that we are not getting nearly enough to meet individual needs. Stress is around every corner and we are subjected to many environmental toxins and microbes in the home and outdoors. The food we eat is often depleted in nutrients and the state of our health is declining constantly with chronic disease. Therefore our nutrient demands are ever increasing, and this includes the need for vitamin C.

Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient and is therefore not stored in the body, so the body needs a constant supply. With the growing demands of the modern world we are much more prone to having a lower vitamin C status. Some of the many reasons for this are:

Given the above, one thing is clear; we need to put back what is missing to make up for the deficit.

While there are different vitamin C products, a favourite amongst practitioners and our Nutrition Team is Vitamin C Powder.

Top Tips For Better Sleep

By Seema Vekaria 3 months ago 16374 Views

It is widely known that good sleep is absolutely vital to our general wellbeing and mental health. So, why is it so important? Sleep replenishes our energy stores, regenerates tissues, strengthens connections between brain cells, and removes waste produced in the body.

However, sleep deprivation is becoming a modern epidemic; a 2018 survey highlighted that only 6% of adults in the UK manage to achieve the recommended 8 hours sleep a night.[i] Not being able to fall asleep, waking up throughout the night, or not feeling refreshed on waking can lead to several problems that we sometimes don't associate with sleep at all. It can leave us anxious, less resilient to stress, and prone to depression. It can severely affect our performance, energy, memory, and can increase the risk of heart failure, stroke, and coronary artery disease.[ii]

How We Can Support You

By Clinical Nutrition 4 months ago 4104 Views

In these unprecedented times, we all need to adapt to the situation, not least how we live, shop, and work. Whilst we at BioCare have remained open for businesses, we are aware that many of you may be struggling in different ways. We therefore wanted to remind you that we are here to support you.

We work closely with holistic practitioners, advising and educating them, to help them play their important role in shaping a healthier society. For this reason, we recently conducted a Practitioner Survey to get an insight into how they are coping given the current situation. Whilst some results were specific to practitioners, actually a large proportion of them are relevant to us all. What stood out was people wanting more product advice, help with their accounts, being informed of product changes and what’s in stock, and receiving news and education about health and nutrition.

We are committed to supporting all of our customers, so here are a few things we can do for you.

As it is Mental Health Awareness Week and we have been getting some questions about the alternative to the EAP Complex, we thought it would be a good time to fill you in on the key features of our Magnesium Phospholipid Complex. Unfortunately, we have had to say goodbye to EAP Complex, which was a combination of magnesium and phospholipids. However, we are sure that after discovering the benefits of Magnesium Phospholipid Complex, you will agree it is the perfect substitute.

At Biocare we take your health seriously. We want you to enjoy a happy gut and a healthy life. That is why we choose just the right types of live bacteria used in the right quantities. We strive to provide a live bacteria product for everyone, from gentle potency powders to high strength capsules to suit individual needs.

Whilst we are big fans of fibre at BioCare, and often use the prebiotic FOS (fructooligosaccharides) in our products, we understand that some of our customers may prefer their live bacteria product without prebiotics, hence we recently added a FOS free version of our best-selling and practitioner favourite BioAdidophilus Forte - BioAcidophilus Forte F.O.S Free to our range.

It is a great alternative for those who are following a low FODMAP, SCD, or GAPS diet, or those of you who are particularly sensitive to prebiotic fibre but still want therapeutic levels of live bacteria.

Magnesium - Are You Getting Enough?

By Marta Anhelush 5 months ago 28150 Views

If there’s one nutrient we should all consider supplementing, it’s magnesium. Magnesium is one of the most important elements in our body, being involved in over 300 enzymatic reactions.[i] Up to 60% of it is stored in our skeleton. Therefore, just like calcium, it is important for healthy bones and prevention of conditions such as osteoporosis. Its functions stretch far beyond musculoskeletal health, though, and include:

  • Protein synthesis
  • Muscle and nerve function
  • Blood glucose management
  • Heart function and blood pressure regulation
  • Energy production.[ii]
