Vitamin D Awareness Week

Timed to coincide with the clocks going back and days getting shorter, Vitamin D Awareness Week (23rd -30th of October) is a major public awareness campaign in the United Kingdom to elevate the nation’s understanding of the health issues associated with declining levels of vitamin D. And it goes beyond that. Vitamin D deficiency is a global problem. Researchers agree that at least one third of the world population is deficient in vitamin D.

 Vitamin D deficiency can be fought in different ways, food supplementation being one of them. Vitamin D benefits are well-known, as are also well known the advantages of organic certified ingredients which are free from pesticides and contaminants.

Our Organic Vitamin D powder, combines all the above plus the nutritional benefits found in mushrooms.  This makes it a perfect, all-natural and organic whole-food ingredient, which can also be combined with other organic options, available from the Gee Lawson range.

Pomella: New White Paper on Benefits for Active People

More than ever, active individuals are looking for natural alternatives that can provide nutritional support to help maximize exercise benefits and reduce recovery time.  Natural antioxidants are an excellent alternative, but not all of them are able to prove bioavailability and efficacy.

Punicalagins are a group of potent antioxidants unique to the pomegranate fruit which are safe, water-soluble and highly bioavailable. These antioxidants can breakup into smaller molecules in the body, allowing them to deliver a wide range of proven health benefits.   

A new white paper, "Pomella® Mind & Body", is available for download here, and provides a scientific review of Pomella® with special focus on joint, vascular-endothelial and cognitive health, along with an impact through the gut-brain axis.

An MSM evolution

Thirty four per cent of MSM is made up of sulphur, the body’s fourth most abundant mineral, which is vital for maintaining healthy joints, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissues, and is also needed to support healthy homeostasis levels and certain metabolic processes. Researchers continue to uncover new applications and nutritional benefits for MSM that go far beyond joint health while remaining safe and effective.

The high standards set by Bergstrom Nutrition will continue to make OptiMSM® a recommended and favoured ingredient for joint and muscle health, sports performance, skincare and immunity.
