Does Iron Give You Energy

October 20, 2020

A Simple Fix for Fall Fatigue There are plenty of reasons to love fall. The colors are beautiful, the brisk weather is invigorating, and those warm sweaters are finally coming out of hiding. Typically, it’s a time to reset, especially if you have kids heading back to school. But if you’re not feeling fall the way you usually do, you’re not alone. It’s different this year. Feeling Spent? Maybe you’re still working from home, living alone, and feeling isolated from…

Preventing Knee Problems in Dogs

October 13, 2020

Dogs who are otherwise healthy may develop serious knee problems such as torn ligaments and arthritis in the knees. This common problem is preventable by supplementing the dog’s diet early, before any problems arise. Cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) disease is a condition which is sadly over represented in today’s veterinary clinics. It is a weakening of the ligaments, or bands of tissue, which stabilize a dog’s knees, connecting the femur (bone above knee) to the tibia (bone below knee). Why…

Flora Supplements Calendar – Autumn

October 8, 2020

We hope you’ve been enjoying our seasonal Flora Supplement Calendar and associated posts throughout the year. Golden colors and reddish hues are slowly appearing on the trees as our fall season gets underway. This is a time when our seasonal cycles may start to contract as we start to turn inwards and reflect on all that’s happened so far this year. Apples, root vegetables, pumpkins and squashes are harvested and make their way onto our plates. Traditionally this is a…

Pumpkin seed oil, a safe, food-based way to promote prostate health

October 6, 2020

Pumpkins and mustaches are both important symbols of fall. Pumpkins are of course essential for Thanksgiving and Halloween, while mustaches are iconic for men’s health issues that get recognized every fall. Growing a mustache for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in September through to Movember is a lighthearted annual tradition that increases awareness of serious issues affecting men, like prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and suicide, while raising money for prostate cancer research. In an interesting twist, pumpkins could themselves become recognized…

Why Whole Food Sourced Vitamin C is the Best Source

September 29, 2020

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that many plants and animals can manufacture from their own glucose stores. Unfortunately for us humans, we’re not one of the mammals that comes with our own built in vitamin C factories. That means we need to ensure we’re getting enough from our diet. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects bodily tissues from oxidative damage. It is also involved in several important enzymatic reactions, including the creation of collagen in connective tissue. This…

Staying Active During Pandemic Times

September 28, 2020

By Ellie Greenwood I’m sure like many of you, my exercise routine took a hit when social distancing and lockdown measures came into force in mid-March.  I was no longer able to go swimming (an activity I use for cross training to supplement my running) and my twice weekly gym sessions were put on hold.  At first I was at a real loss of how to work around these restrictions and was concerned that my training would be compromised, but…

Immunity – It Works A Lot Like Teamwork

September 22, 2020

Moving Forward, Working Together, and Raising the Bar This fall, we are all pretty much moving on with our lives, although if we’re honest, some of us may feel like survivors from a movie where an asteroid has hit the planet. The events of this year have impacted some more than others, and I hope humans can pull together like a team to support one another. Most of us want to get on with things, but we wish to feel…

An Athlete’s Take on Re-balance and De-stressing

September 17, 2020

By Jen Segger For over twenty years, I have been pushing myself to the limit in the endurance world. I’ve demanded a lot from my body – I’ve repeatedly asked it to carry me up mountains and through rain forests for days upon end, to bike across vast landscapes all over the world and to paddle remote waterways – so that I could explore outer islands and passages where very few get to go. I’ve raced at the elite level…
