    “It’s never too early or too late to work towards being a healthier you”

    This is undoubtedly a truly unique time which has brought on great reflection for many, and for a lot of us, this time has been an opportunity to realise the true importance of health and what that looks like to us. Not only have we seen the importance of a strong immune system, but the connection between our immunity and other areas, such as our digestive health, respiratory health and energy.

    This is why we are flying the flag for daily essential nutrition, to ensure we are providing our bodies with the right nutrition so that our bodies are well equipped with what they need, come what may.

    So what does essential nutrition look like?

    We believe that achieving great health, vitality and wellbeing lies in the foundation of having optimum amounts of vitamins and minerals, essential fats, antioxidants and friendly bacteria. A daily nutritional supplement regime that covers these areas provides the key building blocks and cofactors for all cellular activity and optimal functioning of all body systems and promoting a healthy and diverse microbiome.

    Why supplement?

    Most individuals nowadays have an inadequate intake of vitamins and minerals commonly leading to deficiencies.[i] Another key factor to consider is your body’s unique requirements. Think of it as a case of Nutritional Economics - it’s all about ‘supply and demand’. If the supply of food is low in nutrient value, or the demand for nutrients is overly high, this can leave us off balance. This could be due to various contributing factors such as poor digestive health, a stressful lifestyle, age, genetics or being overweight.

    To help you on your health journey, our team of nutritionists have hand-picked their 4 core essential products to support overall health and wellbeing and equip you with key foundation towards essential nutrition.

    Introducing our new recyclable packaging
    At BioCare, we care about health – of our customers, ourselves and our environment. We are committed to improving our sustainability efforts, and have been working behind the scenes for some time now on initiatives such as changing our plastic packaging, using more recyclable materials and less packaging overall in deliveries. We are now delighted to tell you that the first of our new recyclable glass packaging is in, with a new brand look too! We are, of course, in the process of moving the entire range into the new packaging, but with over 200 products, they’ll gradually come into stock. We’re really excited about this new journey, and hope you are too.
