    Elderberry and The Immune System 

    The flowers and berries of the plant also have a diaphoretic action; helping the  immune system to mount an optimal fever response to efficiently kill pathogens that  are susceptible to the heat. At a microscopic level, elderberry promotes a healthy  immune response against viruses by increasing the number of inflammatory  molecules called cytokines. Cytokines can cause local and systemic inflammation; encouraging immune cells to  the area to help clear infection.

    Choosing a Fish Oil for your child

    Fish oils are known as Omega 3’s which are called Essential Fatty Acids. These essential fats are necessary since many important functions and tissues in the body rely on them. The body is unable to produce them on its own, therefore supplementation is needed. However, before considering supplementation, increasing fresh water/ wild caught fish in the diet should be the first source of fish oils. Fish oils are comprised of EPA, eicosapentaenoic acid, and DHA, docosahexaenoic acid.

    Electrolytes: Why Your Body Needs Them

    Magnesium is one of my favourite minerals. Our bones readily take up magnesium at a high rate, so it’s no surprise that 60% of the magnesium in your body is found in your bones. Energy production, lactic acid removal, and immune function all rely on optimal magnesium intake. Athletes deficient in dietary magnesium intake may have a significant reduction in exercise performance when compared to their peers. Excessive alcohol intake, gastrointestinal problems, anorexia, and certain medications may predispose an individual to insufficient magnesium status.

    Training Our Youth: Building a Future Foundation

    One step in helping teenagers make smart food choices. Instead of buying “junk food”, fill your house with vegetables, fruits, whole grains and water. Parents also need to remember what it was like to be a teenager. Teens want to hang out with their friends and do what their friends do.

    Healthy beautiful skin, gleaning hair and strong nails are a checklist for most. The common denominator within this check list is that they all require in part collagen as one of the main building blocks alongside keratin and elastin. 
    Collagen is abundant throughout our body and its main function is to support the structure and firmness of our dermis which in turn supports our epidermis. This resilient triple helix structure is a building block for our body’s internal framework reaching from our skin, internal organs and cartilage.

    Your Immune System is About to be Challenged

    Another allergy season is upon us. The first colds threaten. Fall carb foods entice. The immune system is challenged. How should you feed it to best support its healthy function?


    Vitamin D – 3000 to 5,000 IU daily for most adults is safe and effective for the prevention of flus and colds. No other supplemented nutrient has been as extensively studied as vitamin D. If you are low in vitamin D, fewer Natural Killer cells (NK-cells) are formed, and your innate immune defenses against viruses and bacteria become impaired.
