I wanted to start off this edition of the newsletter to look at one story which has been everywhere in the news of late. The recent scandal following the discovery of horsemeat in cheap, ready-to-eat dishes labelled as beef has really focused the nation on processed foods and made us ask "what’s in our products?!".
Aside from this recent issue, one of the main problems with processed food is that when they are "processed" – which could be to enhance food flavour or increase shelf life - the result is that many healthy nutrients are removed because of this process – and additives such
as fats and sugars are often added as well as artificial chemicals. All this recent talk around horsemeat is another reminder for us all: go "whole food"! See ‘Hot whole food swaps’ for suggestions. This of course includes Sun Chlorella ‘A’ – nature’s version of a multi-vitamin, containing no added ingredients – it’s just fresh-water algae and natural soya protein!
All the best!

Did you know that you can eat your way to better energy? Vitamin B12, which is found in meat, eggs, dairy products and Sun Chlorella ‘A’, is not only linked to boosting energy via helping red blood cell production - but is also related to the immune system and keeping the nervous system (brain, nerves and spinal cord) healthy.
There’s been much confusion around detox diets recently.
The word "detox" means, quite literally, the removal of toxins from the body. Here are just a few common misconceptions.
MYTH: Detox = Fasting Contrary to popular belief, a detox shouldn’t mean starving yourself. Experts suggest eating little and often to combat cravings.
FACT: Curb your salt It’s true that salt is the enemy of the detox. Salt impairs your body’s ability
