WINTER IS COMING!!!!!!!!
Well it has certainly gotten a little chillier of late huh?
With the flu season upon us we would like to mention a few supplements by that can absolutely help you this season.

Vitamin C - you can't take too much as you will just pass it out but high levels of C will help massively:
Support energy yielding metabolism
Help to maintain psychological function
Support your immune system
Help to maintain bones and cartilage
Improve skin appearance
Reduce tiredness and fatigue
Help to create vitamin E
Help with iron absorption
Help to maintain health blood pressure
Support teeth & gum health

Zinc

Zinc, a nutrient found throughout your body, helps your immune system and metabolism function. Zinc is also important to wound healing and your sense of taste and smell.

K2/D3 combo

What do vitamins K2 and D3 do?
Both vitamins are fat soluble and work together to metabolise calcium in your body by activating helpful proteins. While vitamin D3 improves your calcium absorption, vitamin K2 allocates where that calcium can be used

Black Seed Oil

If you don't have a low blood pressure then Black Seed Oil is fantastic for you.
Here's the list of health benefits of black seed oil:
Powerful Anti-inflammatory Properties
Strong Antioxidants
Fights Obesity
Fights Against Breathing Disorders
Reduces Skin Allergy
Good For Respiratory System
Strengthens Bone
Strong Antibacterial Effect.

Finally please research what company you buy your supplements from. Most use cheap fillers that are not what they say they are including H&B. They are cheap for a reason. We only stock Viridian as we consider their products among the best on the market. They are ethical, organic and British.

Take control.
Don’t allow supermarket foods to control you. Read the ingredients. They are listed in order of qty, so if sugar is the 2nd ingredient that’s what the product is mainly comprised of.

Winter is coming so lay your foundation now for hitting your nutritional goals which in turn helps you fight off illness.

We are here to support your journey with our amazing refill shop which just happens to be plant based too.

I’m definitely going bananas!
Anyone with me

'' BANANAS...''
A very interesting FACTS

Never, put your banana in the refrigerator!!!...
This is interesting. After reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again.

Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes.

But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

DEPRESSION:
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS:
Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

ANEMIA:
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

BLOOD PRESSURE:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

BRAIN POWER:
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

CONSTIPATION:
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

HANGOVERS:
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

HEARTBURN:
Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

MORNING SICKNESS:
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

MOSQUITO BITES:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

NERVES:
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system..

Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

ULCERS:
The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL:
Many other cultures see bananas as a 'cooling' fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has FOUR TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, THREE TIMES the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals.. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, 'A BANANA a day keeps the doctor away!'

PASS IT ON TO YOUR FRIENDS...
PS: Bananas must be the reason monkeys are so happy all the time! I will add one here; want a quick shine on our shoes?? Take the INSIDE of the banana skin, and rub directly on the shoe...polish with dry cloth. Amazing fruit !!!

How we got here... two people, two journeys, one goal: health and happiness!

Carl: I'm always asking 'WHY?', questioning the status quo... 'Why do we eat what we eat?' And so the story begins... there’s always a story!

I'm an active human for sure. I played amateur and semi pro sport all my life and I love the gym. I was brought up in an era of meat and three veg when we were served warm milk in bottles at school. Indoctrinated into a meat and dairy based diet my body suffered over the years with various ailments. In particular, I noticed that my body would gain weight in spite of physical activity. Why? It was only at the age of 49 that I decided something had to change. Having tried all sorts of fad diets from eating plans for sport to plans to loose fat with varying degrees of success, there never seemed to be anything that gave consistent results until I discovered whole food plant based eating. More than a diet it is a lifestyle. A game changer for me! I have bundles of energy, amazing steady sleep patterns and much clearer skin. The recovery from a hard gym session is so much faster too and I can eat when I want. At 50 I have lost fat and gained muscle mass as I get plenty of protein from natural sources.

As I continued to research I grew more and more disheartened by what I read and what I saw concerning the meat industry: unsustainable, cruel and a massive problem for the environment. I feel the time is now to change our eating habits for our own health and for our world. So let's do this. Let's make a positive change. With this new found health and energy, I have decided it's time to bring a fully loaded vegan store to Warrington - Powered by Plants.
