Probiotics - Good health starts with a healthy digestive system
Our CEO, Georgina Mason, swears by Vivomixx high potency 450 billion bacteria probiotics to keep her pouchitis at bay.
She has had her large bowel removed due to ulcerative colitis and suffers from pouchitis which can be quite often debilitating.
Pouchitis is a disruption of bacteria in the internal pouch which is created by surgeons in replacement of the large bowel.
Many bowel cancer patients have some or all of their large bowel removed and continue to suffer from on going gut issues such as this.
Many other inflammatory bowel conditions such as ulcerative colitis, crohns disease and coeliac disease cause an irritation of the lining of the small and large bowel and can be pre cursors to bowel cancer later in life if left untreated.
Vivomixx probiotics help to keep the gut flora at a level where gut issues are manageable on an ongoing basis without the use of antibiotics.
Vivomixx was developed over 30 years ago by Professor Claudio De Simone, a well respected Medical Doctor and Professor of Infectious Diseases and Immunology and a member of the American College of gastroenterology. Vivomixx has the scientific backing of 60 successful studies from around the world showing Vivomixx actually works to control inflammatory gut conditions and is safe to use.
Vivomixx needs to be kept in the fridge and comes in either sachets or capsules and are a daily use product for both adults and children. It does not contain preservatives or sweeteners and is gluten free.

Prebiotic Plant Protein - Food source to support a healthy immune system
“We were put on to Tashi Superfood Plant Protein by a friend. We were looking for something to add to our morning cereals and smoothies to give us some added protein and “staying power”. We have tried the Tashi Vanilla and are currently using the Berry flavour – both are delicious! We are finding that we aren’t looking around for snacks mid-morning now, which is great! It has also significantly improved our gut health, this is a real bonus for both of us.”

Frankincense - helping fight inflammation
Frankincense oil comes from the resin of the Boswellia tree and helps speed up wound heeling, controls bleeding, improves uterine and oral health as well as fights inflammation.
It’s this inflammatory effect that has researchers excited.
The National Centre for Complimentary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) studied patients with osteoarthritis and found they had better pain relief than those who used a placebo.
Long term inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, bronchial asthma, Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative colitis can lead to health issues that can be reduced by the use of Frankincense.
It’s long term inflammatory conditions such as Crohn’s and Colitis that can lead to bowel cancer if left untreated.
Frankincense contains boswellic acid that fights inflammation by targeting free radicals and cytokins in the body responsible for inflammation.
Essential oil should never be ingested but dilute with a carrier such as almond oil and apply to the skin.
Frankincense extract can be swallowed but some side effects may be noted when used in conjunction with some other drugs. These can include stomach pain, nausea and diarrhoea.
We recommend talking through this treatment with your doctor or oncologist to see if Frankincense is right for you as a supplement to on going medical treatment.
