After my chat with Fabrizio Marini and Jane Carroll for our Therapist of the Month blogpost I asked Fabrizio to tell me what he considers to be his top Superfoods and how he likes to use them. You’ll be glad to see that these amazing foods can be introduced to your daily diet with no greater effort than mixing them into a juice, smoothie, breakfast cereal or soup. It’s so easy yet the benefits can be huge! Here are Fabrizio’s top six superfoods.

Product Review – Pukka ManPlus

Product Review Pukka ManPlus

ManPlus is one of Pukka’s unique range of supplements based on the venerable Ayurvedic medicine system from India. As a ‘male tonic’ I think it has so much to offer. The combination of ingredients strengthen, nourish and rejuvenate. They offer circulatory stimulant and heart tonic properties, reduce inflammation and alleviate stress. Which man couldn’t benefit from that kind of boost. Low vitality, low libido, prostate inflammation, erectile dysfunction, frequent urination, relentless stress and adrenal exhaustion can all be combatted by its impressive list of ingredients.

Among them are :

Turmeric and Aloe Vera for their anti inflammatory properties.
Red Ginseng and Hawthorn for energy and heart tonic properties.
Spirulina, a microscopic algae to offer nutrition including iron and b vitamins.
Cinnamon and ginger to stimulate the circulation.
Cordyceps, a mushroom to improve oxygen availability and rejuvenate the reproductive system.
Broccoli and cabbage seed sprouts which can have a positive effect on prostate swelling.
Pomegranate and Holy Basil which are potent antioxidants.
Maca is a reputed aphrodisiac, thought to increase sperm production and motility.

Featured Product Red Ginseng

ManPlus has a combination of ingredients to nourish and rejuvenate the male body including the heart and the reproductive and hormone systems, to reduce inflammation while boosting the circulation and kick starting the libido. It makes for an effective all round male tonic.
