DIM is shown to be superior to a similar indole, I3C, because I3C may have the potential to aggravate certain cancers whereas DIM does not.

“All the benefits of the sunshine in a one-a-day chewable tablet”
We all know how much better we feel for a week in the sunshine and part of that is our increased production of Vitamin D. Better known as the ‘sunshine’ vitamin, a shortage of Vitamin D (cholecalciferol) can cause diseases like Rickets and Osteomalacia; thankfully now-rare,but reemerging in developing countries. . Further links are emerging with other more common chronic diseases (heart disease, cancer, and diabetes) and Vitamin D supplementation has even been shown to help reduce the incidence of flu in children. It is now one of the most-studied nutritional supplements particularly for it’s anti-cancer properties and is becoming increasingly popular as people spend more time under artificial light, which along with winter, clouds, and smog (all common in London) can reduce our vitamin D stores. We love it and are sure that you will too.
Did you know? For Vitamin-D to be used in the body, you do need to get adequate levels of Magnesium, Zinc, and Vitamin A from the diet so ensure you eat plenty of foods high in these, or consider our Multi-First supplement to help with this.

CherryActive products can improve your sporting and training performance by helping speed up the muscle recovery process. Used by over half of the Aviva Premiership Rugby teams, including Wasps and London Irish, and over half of the Barclays Premiership Football teams, including Manchester United and Arsenal, CherryActive can help you improve your performance gains by enabling you to trainer harder sooner.
CherryActive can help you take your fitness training and sports performance to the next level…
Proven to speed recovery and reduce soreness from intense exercise, CherryActive products contain a rich mix of natural compounds, including anthocyanins, which are known to have anti-inflammatory properties. Quicker recovery means that you can train harder, more often, leading to rapid performance gains.
Optimise Muscle Gains with Antioxidant Power!
Recent tests have shown a single 30ml shot of CherryActive Concentrate contains more antioxidants than you’d find in 20 average fruit and veg portions!*
During intense exercise, your body produces an increase in free radicals, which can contribute to muscle cell deterioration. This may, in turn, lead to loss in muscle mass and strength. The powerful antioxidants in CherryActive help “mop up” damaging free radicals, helping to reduce cell damage and optimise your muscle and strength gains.
CherryActive also contains naturally-occurring melatonin, which is a powerful compound, well-documented to help support your body’s circadian rhythms and natural sleep cycles. Quality sleep is an important factor in an athlete’s recovery as this is when your body’s complex repair processes are most active.
CherryActive is available as a concentrate or as capsules (the convenient and low carb alternative!):
473ml concentrate – £14.95

“Fire up your energy furnaces with this popular combination”
Alpha L is our Alpha Lipoic Acid supplement and packs 200mg of ALA along with 300mg of N-Acetyl Carnitine both of which are involved in energy production within the body. These both work in the ‘powerhouse’ cells called mitochondria improving our ability to convert fuel to energy. ALA is also a versatile antioxidant helping reduce oxidative stress around the body and shows some positive results in animal studies on improving energy levels. We recommend this product in particular to those over the age of 50 who are keen to improve energy levels, or anyone looking to help with their concentration or memory.
Did you know? Carnitine was initially isolated in 1905 but it took another 50 years for researchers to figure out its various roles in human physiology. ALA increases our levels of glutathione, which is critical in helping clear the body of substances like heavy metals, and has also been shown in studies to help improve insulin sensitivity.
