Energy & Vitality

Many of us feel perpetually exhausted by the stresses of modern life. The result is that we struggle through our days, which only adds to the stress.

Although stress is probably the prime cause of chronic exhaustion, there are many other factors as well such as poor diet and a lack of exercise. If our bodies are not getting all the nutrients that they need, the result is a lock of energy and vitality.

The following are a few of the food supplements that can help us re-energise.

BeeBetter Organic Royal Jelly

Royal jelly has been renowned for many thousands of years for its remarkable health-giving properties.

In Ancient Egypt, royal jelly was always reserved for the Pharaoh because it was believed that it would ensure that he had a long and healthy life.

img-royaljelly-organic02.jpgFresh royal jelly is nature's powerhouse of nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), enzymes, vitamins (A, B C and E), minerals (potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc and manganese) and gelatine (a precursor of collagen, which might explain why those who take it believe it keeps them vital and youthful). This concentrated and unique nutritional profile means that this popular elixir has a protective effect in the body, helping to promote health and immunity, and overall vitality.

As with many superfoods, royal jelly has been handed to us by Mother Nature. Its secret lies with its makers — one of the busiest little creatures on Earth: the bees. They spend their busy lives collecting pollen from flowers and naturally processing it into royal jelly and honey. Nobody knows this better than our royal jelly supplier, who has run his family company in Spain since the 1890s and who produces Organically-Certified Royal Jelly.

img-royaljelly-organic01.jpgThis raw product has not been pasteurized, does not contain additives, preservatives or colourings, and only undergoes filtering to remove impurities. Also, the beehives are situated in a naturally protected environment, with a minimum radius of 3 kilometres away from any kind of contaminants, which creates a very high quality, clean, fresh and organically certified product.

BeeBetter Organic Royal Jelly is available in a small 20g glass bottle, which should last approximately one month.

Directions: Take a ¼ tsp of royal jelly on the tongue first thing in the morning, followed by a warm drink.

Storage: Please note that this product should be refrigerated. (It is fine out of the refrigerator for a few days during delivery, but otherwise it should be kept cold for longest life.)

Bulk Discount: Buy 6+ of this product and the unit price will be reduced by 15%.

Biobran MGN-3: Immune System Support

BioBran MGN-3 is a proprietary fractionated rice bran food supplement that helps the body maintain a healthy immune system.

Developed in Japan by Daiwa Pharmaceutical, BioBran is manufactured using a patented process to break down (pre-digest) rice bran using enzymes from Shitake mushrooms. The resulting compound contains a unique blend of hemicellulose nutrients — including specific arabinoxylan compound as well as other short chain polysaccharides. This is then combined with Vitamin D3 in the Biobran Plus, making this food supplement ideal for healthy immune system support.

A lower strength version of Biobran called Biobran Plus which has 50mg of Biobran with added Vitamin D3 and inactive yeast has been developed for basic immune system maintenance.

How does BioBran MGN-3 support the immune system? Our immune system is comprised of an army of white blood cells — NK cells, T and B cells — which travel around destroying the millions of intruding microbes that penetrate our bodies every day, as well as the thousands of newly infected or abnormal body cells that develop. The BioBran MGN-3 food supplement gives our white blood cells the nutritional support to carry on with their vital role energetically and efficiently.

Another advantage of BioBran MGN-3 is that it retains its effectiveness in the body even after a prolonged period of use - in other words, there is none of the usual drop-off effect over time experienced with most other food supplements. BioBran is also highly absorbable, safe, GMO-free and contains no actual mushroom in the finished product, which means it can be taken by those with mushroom intolerances. (The only situation when one should avoid using this product is obviously in conjunction with immunosuppressants.)

Directions: For normal health maintenance, the recommended intake is 500mg per day with meals. Those who need optimum immune system support, take 3 grams per day for 8 weeks (1g with each meal), and then 1 gram per day thereafter. The powder is very palatable and can be dissolved in a small amount of water. Tablets should be taken with meals, whereas sachets should ideally be taken 20 minutes after a meal.

Available sizes: BioBran MGN-3 is available in 50 x 250mg tablet blister pack, 30 & 105 x 1000mg (1g) powder sachets and a low-dose 90 x 50mg tablet version. Gram for gram, there is no difference in effectiveness between the powder, tablets and capsules. Generally those taking smaller quantities prefer the convenience of tablets whilst those taking larger quantities prefer sachets.

Biobran tablet ingredients: Biobran Arabinoxylan compound (250mg per tablet), Microcystalline Cellulose (bulking agent ), Cornstarch (stabiliser), Cocoa Powder (colour), Glycerol Ester of Fatty Acids (emulsifier), Dextrin (stabilizer), Tricalcium Phosphate (anti-caking agent), Silicon Dioxide (anti-caking agent).


Biobran sachet ingredients (max strength): Biobran Arabinoxylan compound (1000mg per sachet), Microcrystaline Cellulose (bulking agent), Dextrin (stabiliser), Corn Starch (stabiliser), Tricalcium Phosphate (anti-caking agent).


Biobran Plus Tabs ingredients (for maintenance): Inactivated brewer's yeast, BioBran Arabinoxylan compound (50mg per tablet), dextrin, microcrystalline cellulose, shellac coating, cocoa powder, sucrose fatty acids ester, Vitamin D3 (4.9 IU per tablet).

Eniva Vibe: Liquid Nutrients for Optimum Absorption

Eniva Vibe is a full-spectrum liquid nutrient supplement that provides a convenient, great-tasting and highly-absorbable way of receiving balanced nutrition. In fact, even those who regularly take vitamin and mineral supplements may notice a difference changing to this product.

VIBE is the new comprehensive answer to the body's need for life-giving nutrients. This "all-in-one" supplement provides a large range of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes and other phyto-nutrients in a form that is highly absorbable and usable.

Produced by a US company entirely focused on the development of the most bio-available nutritional supplements on the market, Eniva VIBE is becoming the supplement of choice for those wanting optimum health and vitality. In fact, it is one of the few supplements endorsed by the world-famous Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida.

VIBE has the added benefit of containing an array of berries and phyto extracts, which help neutralise free radicals. These reactive molecules can cause cellular deterioration, promote premature ageing and contribute to poor health. VIBE has an extremely high ORAC rating (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Rating) of 100,000 per bottle or 3,125 per 30mL serving, which places it far above other nutrient supplements and juices. For example, a 30mL serving of Noni Juice has an ORAC rating of 165 in comparison, and a 30mL serving of Goji Berry Juice has a rating of 380.

The secret of VIBE's unique absorbancy is its manufacturing process which was developed by Eniva's president and Chief of Research, Ben Baechler. Eniva start with USP23 pharmaceutical grade water and subject it to a strong magnetic field to help structure and electrify the water. They then add specific natural nutrients in a way that makes them water-soluble and in a free molecular/ionic form that is easy for cells to absorb. Finally, the nutrients are "set" in this energized solution base by passing high frequency sounds or vibrations through the mixture. The result is a truly remarkable liquid nutritional supplement — VIBE. (Please note that the product we sell is the latest reformulated version of Eniva VIBE.)

Eniva VIBE contains the following ingredients: Purified water, natural extracts and flavours (from blackberry, and/or apple, and/or chokeberry, and/or elderberry, and/or blueberry, and/or blackcurrant, and/or oregano, and/or tomato, and/or hibiscus, and/or carrot, and/or pumpkin, and/or cherry, and/or grape, and/or cranberry, and/or green tea leaf extract (water decaffeinated), and/or lemon, and/or lime, and/or aloe vera gel, and/or grape seed extract, and/or citrus extracts, and/or pomegranate, and/or wolfberry, and/or acai berry, and/or strawberry, and/or raspberry), natural sugars (beet, xylitol, molasses), magnesium (from magnesium citrate, and/or magnesium malate, and/or magnesium sulphate, and/or magnesium glycerophosphate, and/or magnesium chloride), citric acid, malic acid, potassium (from potassium citrate, and/or potassium chloride, and/or potassium iodide, and/or potassium lactate), calcium (from calcium citrate, and/or calcium malate, and/or calcium chloride, and/or calcium glycerophosphate), ascorbic acid, l-proline, l-lysine, d-alpha-tocopherol acetate (with mixed tocopherols), preservatives (potassium sorbate, benzoic acid [sodium salt]), d-ribose, niacin (nicotinic acid), l-carnitine fumarate, zinc (from zinc sulphate, and/or zinc chloride), calcium panthothenate, boron (from sodium borate), glucosamine hydrochloride, (vegetable), vitamin A palmitate, thickeners (xanthan, guar, arabic), folic acid, manganese (from manganous chloride, and/or manganese sulphate), pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin phosphate (coenzyme vitamin B2, natural food additive), thiamin hydrochloride, copper (from copper sulphate, and/or copper gluconate), cholecalciferol, isolated soy lecithin, chromium (from chromium chloride), sorbimacrogol, biotin, CoQ10 (ubiquinone), glycerin, selenium (from sodium selenate), vanadium (from vanadyl sulphate), cyanocobalamin, n-methyl-cobalamin.

KBG Super-3: Klamath Algae + Chlorella + Spirulina Mix

KBG Super-3™ is a synergistic blend of three of the most powerful algae: Klamath Blue Green Algae, Chlorella and Spirulina.

Edible green and blue-green algae are high-density superfoods, helping us to maintain optimum health and vitality. Whilst Klamath Blue Green Algae is recognized as one of the most nutritious, many are also drawn to Chlorella and Spirulina for their own unique properties. Normally, you can only get these superfoods separately, but now, they are available in a 1:1:1 ratio mix in the same vegetarian capsule. This unique product is called KBG Super-3™.

Chlorella (Chlorella pyrenoidosa)
Chlorella is a unicellular green algae which has many remarkable health benefits, and is known to help support detoxification and immunity. It is also a source of chlorella growth factor (CGF) which is considered by some to be its primary health benefit. The species we use in this product is chlorella pyrenoidosa, which is known to have a higher concentration of certain vitamins and amino acids, and also a higher concentration of CGF. KBG Super-3 chlorella is grown organically to ensure purity, and the cell wall is broken to ensure optimum absorption, and cool dried to maximize its nutritional profile.

Spirulina (Arthrospira platensis)
Spirulina is a blue-green algae like Klamath Blue Green Algae, but it is single-celled and so slightly more primative. In fact, it has probably been on the planet for over 3 billion years. Spirulina tends to be a cultivated algae because, being single-celled, it is difficult to harvest cleanly from the wild. Spirulina is one of the richest sources of carotenoids, including beta carotene, amino acids, minerals and many other nutritional components. KBG Super-3 spirulina is grown organically to ensure purity. And because, like Klamath above, it has a soft cell wall, these nutrients are readily available and assimilable. The high quality spirulina in KBG Super-3 is gently dried to maintain nutritional integrity.


Certification: All three algae used in this food supplement are certified by Oregon Tilth (Cert. no. 3295664).

Klamath Blue Green Algae: Green Superfood

Klamath Blue Green Algae® is the most nutrient-dense greenfood available for those seeking optimum health with wild wholefoods.

Scientifically called Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA), this species of blue-green algae has received serious media attention: Newsweek magazine reported a few years ago that this wild wholefood from Upper Klamath Lake is one of the fastest growing items in the health food market; it has been described in the British press as the greenfood supplement of choice by various high-profile personalities such as Jennifer Aniston, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore.

The surge in popularity of AFA blue green algae bears testimony to the wide spectrum of health benefits that people have experienced when taking the algae. And while vitamin and mineral supplements have become heavily promoted for nearly a half-century, wild greenfoods such as Klamath blue green algae are now becoming important components of leading-edge nutritional regimes. Healthcare practitioners - including physicians, naturopaths, homeopaths, acupuncturists and chiropractors - are using The Really Healthy Company's  algae as part of their patients' nutritional regimes.


AFA wild Klamath Blue Green Algae® is harvested from the highly mineralized Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon, USA, using a unique floating harvester, engineered with state-of-the-art screening and refrigeration systems. The algae then undergoes a gentle cool-drying process to not only retain nutrient integrity, but also to concentrate its goodness by up to 20 times. Every batch of the cool-dried algae is tested for purity by an independent laboratory, and the Oregon Department of Agriculture has a representative in the Klamath area that also conducts spontaneous sampling to further ensure all products meet the standards of food hygiene. In addition, the product has been examined here in the UK, and approved as a food. 

Klamath Blue Green Algae® in CAPSULES: this is the most convenient way to take Klamath Blue Green algae. Each capsules contains 500mg of pure Klamath Blue Green Algae and can be taken with water or juice.


Klamath Blue Green algae® in POWDER: this form is perfect for adding to smoothies. While it can be an acquired taste mixed in just water, many also take it this way as it is more cost effective. (Better to start with capsules if new to the product.)


Directions: When first taking the product it is recommended to start with just one capsule or, if using powder, one third of a level teaspoon (½g), in a glass of water or juice on am empty stomach, preferably early in the day. Gradually build up to 2 capsules a day or two-thirds of a level teaspoon (1g) a day, or as advised by your healthcare practitioner.

Nutritional Harvest (Cornucopia) Royal Jelly (fresh and live)

Please note that the Cornucopia Royal Jelly has been rebranded as Nutritional Harvest Royal Jelly.

Royal jelly has been recognized for its remarkable health-giving properties for many thousands of years. Even, the Egyptian Pharaohs would take it to ensure long and healthy lives. And today, the ever-youthful 92 year-old Margaret Weesz supplies equally high quality royal jelly. Weesz's royal jelly is LIVE, FRESH and has a British laboratory Certificate of Purity.

Fresh royal jelly is a powerhouse of nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), enzymes, vitamins (A, B, C, C and E), minerals (potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc and manganese) and gelatine (a precursor of collagen, which might explain why those who take it believe it believe it keeps them vital and youthful). It also contains globulinic acid (gamma globulin). This concentrated and unique nutritional profile means that this elixir has a protective effect in the body, helping to promote health and immunity. This is important in an age where humans are crowded together in planes, trains, coaches and cars, where optimum immune function is vital. Perhaps it is no coincidence that royal jelly is actually a power-packed glandular secretion made by worker bees for the sole provision of the Queen Bee to allow her to live 40 times longer than the workers and to lay up to 2,000 eggs a day! (All bee larvae are fed royal jelly for the first three days of their lives, but only the queen remains on it for her entire life.) And this is why Royal Jelly is popular with high profile stars such as Jerry Hall and of course the late Barbara Cartland.

img-weesz.jpgNutritional Harvest live royal jelly (originally branded Cornucopia) was sourced for us by Mrs. Weesz, a nonagenarian doctor's widow who attributes this particular brand to her astonishing health, vigour and youthful appearance. Looking far younger than her 92 years (this photo was taken on 3/2/11), Mrs. Weesz is an advertisement for the benefits of this elixir.

Nutritional Harvest live royal jelly has a minimum 2% 10-HDA (10-Hydroxy-2-Decenoic Acid) content, making it more vitalising and effective than many other brands on the market, and it is available in a 20g size small glass jar, which should last approximately a month.

Directions: Take a ¼ tsp of royal jelly on the tongue first thing in the morning and followed with a warm drink.

Storage: Please note that this product should be refrigerated. (It is fine out of the refrigerator for a few days during delivery, but otherwise it should be kept cold for longest life.)

PRL DHEA, Premier *

Premier DHEA by Premier Research Labs is a food supplement synthesized from wild yam using a proprietary laboratory process. DHEA is important for hormone production.

Please note: this is a professional-formula food supplement generally used by healthcare practitioners.

Premier DHEA is a food supplement that contains DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) that has been synthesized from wild yam as the starting material. During a proprietary laboratory process, the compound diosgenin is extracted from wild yam (dioscorea) which is then used to synthesize DHEA. The body is unable to metabolize wild yam directly into DHEA. A multi step laboratory process is needed to convert wild yam into the final compound, DHEA.

DHEA is a hormone naturally secreted by the adrenal glands and is the most abundant adrenal steroid hormone in the body. DHEA travels throughout the body where it is converted into androgens, estrogens and other hormones. Plasma levels of DHEA gradually decline with age. Studies suggest that DHEA provides beneficial support for healthy aging, sense of well being (mood) and hormone levels.

Directions: For men: take 1 capsule, 4 times daily. For women: take 1 capsule, 2 times daily. As with all hormone products, consult your practitioner prior to use.

PRL stock levels: Whilst we keep normal stock levels of PRL best sellers, this range is very large and so we only keep low stock levels of the others listed on this site, including this one. And if the product you want is not listed at all, please contact us so we can look to special ordering it for you.

PRL Max B-ND (Vitamin B Complex)

Max B from Premier Research Labs is a naturally-sourced, whole food, probiotic cultured, end-chain liquid Vitamin B complex.

The B Vitamins, known collectively as Vitamin B-complex, are natural nutrients that are vital for healthy cell metabolism as well as many other functions in the body. At one time they were thought to be a single vitamin, until research showed that what had been designated as Vitamin B was in fact eight different substances, which were then labelled Vitamin B1 (thiamine), Vitamin B2 (riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (niacin), Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), Vitamin B7 (biotin), Vitamin B9 (folate or folic acid) and Vitamin B12 (cobalamins). These vitamins all have important functions in the body that include:

  • Normal cell energy production
  • Nervous system & psychological support (good for stress)
  • Maintenance of normal skin and mucous membranes
  • Immune system support
  • Normal cell reproduction

Premier Research Labs' Max B -ND is one of the very highest and most bio-available Vitamin B-complex food supplements available. It is manufactured in a unique way that involves predigesting food plants, herbs and spices in a proprietary probiotic culture that has been modelled on the human intestinal tract. This unique prepatory process and the fact that the product remains in liquid form makes the Quantum Nutrition B-complex vitamins extremely bioavailable because they have been produced in a "food state", and the product includes methaylated forms of these vitamins, an important consideration for the large percentage of people who are not able to utilize (methylate) B vitamins properly, and therefore who can potentially have elevated homocysteine levels.

Max B contains all the B vitamins because research has shown that they work more effectively when they are delivered together, rather than individually. (See info section below for a breakdown of what each B vitamin is responsible for in the body.)

 Directions: Take 2.5ml (a half teaspoon) in a small amount (60ml) of water per day.
