December Newsletter

victoria health awards

Voila. It’s the last newsletter of the year, so hello and welcome to the VH Awards 2018. As ever, nobody has voted, which makes me happy for several different reasons, not least because I have no desire to bombard any of you with ‘vote for’ emails when you could be watching a box set, having a bath or be sleeping in bed.

The awards are based on facts, although I have allowed myself some creative license here and there. There are treats attached to some of the awards, but not all awards have products attached to them. Each of the awards given are representative of the journey throughout this year, which has been interesting for many different reasons. Life works in mysterious ways and I fully embrace that as we uphold the thing that matters most to us, namely helping to make a positive difference in all that we do.

So having declared to the VH Addicts that there wouldn’t be any more product launches this year, I eat my words once again. Here we are and here we go: Read More…

July Newsletter

Cactus

Hello and welcome to the July newsletter where we exclusively launch a magnificent new product for Color Wow together with several new product launches from Better You. I write about the return of Phylia de M (please don’t fall over) and we throw the focus on the result-driven skincare brand that is knocking everything out of the water and has sent me spinning.

Additionally we take a look at some common health concerns, which include Candida and Lyme Disease; with Ionicell holding its position as our bestselling supplement since its launch, we dig deeper into its assets and I jump onto The Podium somewhere in the middle of all of this and hold hands with Lisa Armstrong. Finally, and this will arrive in no particular order, I have a whole list of people I need to thank, which will appear here, there and everywhere, there is an also an update on Soul Medicine and a Summer Essentials Kit. Let’s do it: Read More…

Iron Tablets – Who Needs Them?

There are approximately six million prescriptions for iron tablets being issued each year in England and Wales. This does not surprise me because iron is essential to life as it plays a key role in the manufacture of proteins and enzymes; is required for the formation of haemoglobin, which is the oxygen carrier within the body, and iron also regulates cell growth. Iron and life are inseparable! With the exception of lactic acid bacteria found in the gut, every living organism requires iron as an essential nutrient for growth and development.

Iron tablets

Iron tablets for the majority are the first line of defence when we are feeling tired or fatigued. Iron tablets are often prescribed for a lack of energy however iron tablets are also prescribed for a host of other reasons including anaemia. The most common types of iron tablets prescribed are ferrous sulphate, ferrous fumarate and ferrous gluconate. There are of course many iron supplements available as tablets, liquids and tonics.
