Stevia, sweet herb, sweet leaf, honey leaf, sugar loaf – five terms which describe the same thing, namely an alternative to harmful, calorie-rich household sugar and the highly questionably 'healthy' artificial sweeteners on the market.
If there were a Nobel Prize for a plant or any nutrient with the highest nutritional content, it would in all likelihood go to spirulina platensis.
Amazingly, thorough research of these nutrients, so important for our health and lives, was relatively late. In the case of trace elements, which are present in our bodies in only tiny amounts, it can take decades until they earn the attention which they have long since deserved.

This fate was also shared by the trace element 'silicon'. While, as early as before the Second World War, some individual scientific treatises by dedicated scientists praised silicon to the skies as a natural remedy, it would take until 1972 before the presence of silicon in the human body was recognised as 'necessary for life' and silicon was given the predicate 'essential'.
Selenium is nothing less than an 'essential', which is to say vital, trace element which is not produced by our bodies and therefore must regularly be ingested via our food. Selenium was discovered in 1817 by the Swede Jöns Jakob Berzelius; however, it was not until the mid-70s that the natural presence of selenium in the human organism (10-15 mg) was proven.
Rooibos tea is gradually coming to enjoy an increasing popularity, including in our geographical region. Present in many people’s memory as a milder alternative to black tea or even coffee (rooibos tea contains no caffeine) and due to the fruity-sweet and nonetheless calorie-free taste, redbush tea can be enjoyed at any time of the day and by any group of people (by both children and pregnant persons).
Imagine a totally incredible natural substance, shown in studies to increase lifespan, prevent and combat even severe illnesses like cancer in every stage, with a positive effect on numerous other diseases like arthritis, circulatory diseases, diabetes and multiple sclerosis and which, if that wasn’t enough, regulates fat metabolism (helps with weight loss!) and has been sensationally shown in animal studies to double endurance ability...

This short description applies to resveratrol, a substance that has only been a focus of scientific attention for the past few years, but since then has been more intensively researched and has continually led to sensational insights!
Coenzyme Q10, ubiquinone, ubiquinol or simply ‘Q10’ – four terms that describe the same thing, namely an essential (necessary for life) vital substance with remarkable, even miraculous potential.

The discovery of the revolutionary enzyme Q10 was a milestone in the medical sciences and even led to a Nobel Prize in 1978 for its discoverer, Prof. Dr. Mitchell. Of the four listed terms, the term ‘Q10’ will be familiar to most of the members of the female sex from cosmetics, and some men will have also undoubtedly also taken note of the term. Hardly known to doctors, coenzyme Q10 has been successfully used as a matter of course for years in many other countries on this planet as a recognised therapy.

Supported by numerous representative studies and statements of world-famous experts in the realm of medicine, we will provide another piece of evidence for how reliant upon coenzyme Q10 we human beings are.
Royal jelly is another gift of ‘Mother’ Nature which you should definitely pay attention to as a health-conscious person!

What exactly is royal jelly and what can it do for our health?

Royal jelly is very special juice with a thick, sticky consistency, produced by bees.
Next to pollen, honey, royal jelly and bee venom, propolis is the most important of these substances. Propolis is a resin produced by bees to resist all kinds of parasites in their warm hives, which are thus well-suited for them, from bacteria to viruses to fungal growths, and to keep themselves and their offspring free of all diseases.

It was surely the delicious taste first of all that caused Columbus, upon his discovery of the papaya fruit, to call it the ‘fruit of the angels’.That papaya could have so much more to offer than its refreshingly delicious taste—that, of course, Columbus could not have guessed after his first encounter with this potential natural remedy.

OPC, an abbreviation for oligomeric proanthocyanidins, belongs to the relatively young genus of phytochemicals (bioflavonoids) with astonishing properties in the prevention and treatment of diseases and premature ageing.

Most of the time, people are initially very sceptical when they hear about a natural substance with a great spectrum of wonderful effects.

How can one and the same substance help with eye problems, reduce skin wrinkles, make joints painless again, prevent heart attacks and also counteract biological ageing?

Conventional medicine teaches us a very isolated view – we have a specialist ophthalmologist, a dermatologist and an orthopaedic surgeon for different ailments – a fatal mistake, because our body is a unified organism and should therefore be regarded holistically...!

What are Omega-3 fatty acids?

You have surely already heard that there are 'good' and 'bad' fats. Fats which, on the one hand, can cause illness in our affluent society – on the other hand, other fats which are vital for our organism. Few people are aware of the fact that, within the second group of good fats, there are also those who can act as true health-bringers. The latter undoubtedly include the omega-3 fatty acids, which affect important metabolic functions in the human body and, therefore, can aid both the prevention and treatment of several diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, Alzheimer’s, arthritis depression and asthma.
