  • Contaminated curcumin: You would not swallow petroleum, would you?

    For decades curcuma has been at the top of the lists of various scientific disciplines. But beware: it has been shown - by branch organizations as well as the University of Georgia - that there are manufacturers that supplement their 'natural' curcumin products with synthetic curcuma. This synthetic variant derives from a petroleum-based substance and is more than one third cheaper. Counterfeiting had been occurring for some time, but this had hitherto mainly involved starch and dye. We discuss all ins and outs below: because not every supplement is created equal!

  • Everything has a rhythm .... and the Pentagon is on tapping along

    The Pentagon has a new toy: a laser that can identify people at a 200-meter distance—based on their heart rate. Yet another reason to take good care of this precious organ of yours. If they start scanning, better look good! Continue reading

  • Post-holiday blues? Balance your belly! PART 2

    In our previous blog we wrote about the importance of optimal intestinal health, in particular the role that prebiotics may play in this. Because in response we received many questions - especially about the galacto-oligosaccharides (B-GOS) –we take a closer look below at the role of prebiotics, B-GOS -- and what this all could possibly mean for you.

  • Post-holiday blues? Balance your belly! PART 1

    Most of us are all too familiar with the pangs of holiday stress. Check that travel insurance at the last minute, quickly drop in at the drugstore for sunscreen and anti-diarrhea pills, say goodbye to family, check the oil of your car, and complete the final tasks at work. But did you know that you can expect a great deal of stress coming back from your trip? Add that to those holiday meals ... and you can really feel it in your stomach!

World Sleep Day is held every year on Friday before the week of Spring (or Vernal) Equinox: day and night are the same all over the world. World Sleep Day is intended as a celebration of sleep and a call to action for important issues related to sleep, including medicine use, education, social aspects and car driving.

  • Lawsuit: Glyphosate destroys healthy gut microbiome

    The soap opera, or melodrama, around glyphosate continues. The Guardian recently published an article based on a large scientific study showing that people exposed to substantive amounts of glyphosate are 41 percent more likely to develop non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. A Dutch investigate collective, Follow The Money, took things a step further and revealed that Monsanto abandoned Dutch research into glyphosate when it produced 'unacceptable' results. As (organic) icing on the cake, it appears from a publication by Bloomberg that a lawsuit has been filed because the pesticide would kill the human healthy gut microbiome—something Monsanto has always denied.

  • Breastmilk sugars for your intestinal flora

    We all know that breastmilk is healthy for babies. It is the best basis you can give them. As nature intends: in terms of nutrients, immune system and intestinal flora. I had no idea, however, that specific breastmilk sugars can benefit my adult intestinal flora as well.

    I was therefore a bit skeptical when Ergomax asked me whether I wanted to test their latest product; 2'-Fucosyllactose . My first reaction: "Fuco-what??". I had no idea what it was. So I decided to dive in and test it myself. My conclusion? It really works, and it can be really worth taking it! Why? I'll explain below.

  • Black noodles, or naked and fertile: It's Valentine's Day!

    That it's almost Valentine's Day will have escaped few. A familiar complaint today is that the tradition lacks character for having become far too commercialized. Nevertheless, for many people it remains the perfect day to treat your loved one(s), including yourself, with something special.

    Over the centuries, the festival has received many different faces and various myths have sprung up around this special 'Day of Love'. But what do black noodles have to do with Valentine's Day?

  • Plankton oil: wax esters, durable and no poison accumulation!

    Plankton oil or Calanus oil consists of a natural extract of the Calanus finmarchicus. This is a small (3-5 mm) lobster species from the Calanidae family. These animals are part of the zooplankton sitting at the beginning of the food chain and are found in large quantities in the Arctic Ocean.

    The new year has just started and the first ailments have already begun. In addition, all your good intentions do not seem to end up in a productive way. In short: Blue Monday. Of course you can not influence all factors of life, but you can choose consciously for good supplementation. Probably it eases 'the pain' a bit. We lend you a hand!
