This weekend the UK (well most parts) was blessed with weather fit for a Caribbean holiday and some sporting greatness. The patriotic amongst us will be feeling rather smug about the British Lions’ result and of course the fact that after 70 something years a British tennis player has won the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. Really, for any sporting enthusiast it was a weekend to cherish. Whenever you watch professional athletes perform today, particularly those at the very peak of their game you will always notice something. They are in extremely good physical condition. Suited to their discipline, their fitness levels are through the roof and they tend to have a very healthy domineer about them. More than ever professional sports men and women take their nutrition very seriously and more than that they utilise supplements which they probably wouldn’t have just 10 years ago.

Being deficient will simply detract from the body’s efficiency and potentially health.

Whilst Omega 3s are regarded as one of the best fat loss supplements they also have many health benefits. Those who supplement with Omega 3s and eat a diet rich in them from oily fish and organic whole eggs could potentially benefit from better insulin health, better joint health, better cardiac health and of course cognitive function.
Which one? Reflex Omega 3s
The word ‘’detox’’ is thrown around a lot today when talking health. Greens powder which are rich in antioxidants and agents which help neutralise free radicals and help the body pass toxins could be a great way to improve overall health and vitality. More than that, they can also help support good gut health by increasing fibre intake.
Which one? PhD Ph-7 Greens
