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…

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

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…
