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.
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.
Fresh 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.
This 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.)

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 rice bran using enzymes from Shitake mushrooms. The resulting compound contains a unique blend of hemicellulose nutrients — including a specific arabinoxylan compound as well as other short chain polysaccharides. This is then combined with Vitamin D3 in the Biobran Plus, making BioBran 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 packs, 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 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 – reactive molecules that 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 comparison, 30mL of Noni Juice has an ORAC rating of 165, and 30mL of Goji Berry Juice has a rating of 380.
The secret of VIBE's unique absorbency 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™ 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™.

Wild Klamath Blue Green Algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae)
Regarded by many nutritionists as the most powerful algae type, Klamath Blue Green Algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae) grows wild in the mineral-rich Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon. In the water, it looks a bit like blades of grass. This beautiful lake freezes in the winter and the area is very hot in the summer, creating extreme environmental conditions which encourage this blue-green algae to produce a uniquely high and vital nutritional profile, including many powerful green pigments and carotenoids, as well as a whole host of other nutrients including B12, trace-minerals, and nucleic acids. (This algae is available as a stand-alone product from us — click here for more info.) The algae is cool dried before encapsulation to maintain nutritional integrity and to naturally concentrate and preserve its nutrients. The algae we use is a clean product without detectable levels of toxins associated with algae.
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).
Directions: Take 3 capsules a day with water or juice on an empty stomach, preferably early in the day.
Bulk Discount: Buy 3 for the price of 2.
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 nutritionists and film actors.
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.

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.
|Ingredients per veg cap||Amount|
|Vegan product. 100% solvent free, excipient-free. No magnesium stearate, corn, milk, soy, salt, sugar, wheat, artificial colours, favours, preservatives, binders, glues, or other potentially toxic excipients often found in tablets and gelatin capsules. Free from GMOs. Violite bottle.|
|DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone)||25 mg|
|Other Ingredients: Stabilized Rice Bran, Vegetable Cellulose Capsule|
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.

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:
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 preparatory process and the fact that the product remains in liquid form makes the Max B-ND 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.
Servings per bottle: approx. 21 for 54mL and 94 for the 235mL
