Herbs may be defined as any plants that can be put to culinary or medicinal
use, including those we associate with orthodox drugs, such as everyday
plants like garlic, sage and rosemary. Interest in herbal medicine throughout
the world is increasing. In the West, people often cite the risk of side
effects from powerful orthodox drugs as a reason for turning to more gentle
plant medicines. The trend towards natural medicine has gained impetus
from our growing concern with environmental issues, such as the destruction
of the rainforest and the loss of rare species. Botanical drugs have become
a part of the daily health routine, much like vitamins. The increasing
criticism of chemical therapy has given way to a more holistic approach
to medicine. Traditional health care has as much to do with preventing
disease as with curing it. The use of simple herbal remedies encourages
us to take responsibility for our own health.
Herbal medicine has
been used for centuries, and is still the basis of Chinese medicine. Herbs
are natural sources of highly concentrated natural nutrients. They are
taken internally and or externally.

Kelp is a convenient and safe food supplement, which ensures a proper
intake of iodine, ocean minerals and trace minerals.
Kelp is a particular
kind of seaweed (Norwegian kelp) that is harvested from the sea with huge
hooks. Special cutters mow off the tops of the kelp, which is then taken
to a processing plant to be cleaned, chopped, finely shredded and then
dried into powder. No boiling is involved, so most of the original nutrients,
ocean minerals and trace elements remain in the final product.

the crucial importance of minerals and trace elements. As constituents
of various enzyme systems, minerals are vital factors in health and well-being

Seaweed is a suitable supplement to boost your vitamin and mineral intake.
When you are feeling bloated or you are constipated, use for 1-2 weeks
to restore balance.
If you are sensitive to iodine, it is best to avoid using this product.
Your requirements are raised by:
Alcohol, drugs, smoking, vitamin D deficiency, too high fibre intake,
excessive diarrhoea, excessive vomiting, pregnancy, breastfeeding, drinking
coffee or tea, antacids, prolonged stress, certain metabolic diseases
(e.g. Diabetes and Thyroidism), burns, eating disorders and vegetarianism.
of minerals in the body:
Every second of every day your body relies on ionic minerals and trace
minerals to generate and conduct billions of tiny electrical impulses.
Without these impulses, not a single muscle would be able to function.
Your heart wouldn’t beat, your brain wouldn’t work and your
cells would not be able to use osmosis to balance water pressure and absorb
nutrients. Minerals help to regulate many important processes, such as
heartbeat, water balance and the functioning of nerves and muscles.
Trace elements, which
are also minerals and no less important than bulk minerals, are required
in extremely small amounts. Every sickness, disease and ailment can be
traced back to a trace element deficiency.
Fluorine, Iodine, Iron, Manganese, Molybdenum, Selenium and Zinc are all
trace elements and each forms less than one hundredth of one per cent
of the human body. However, these minute amounts should not be misleading,
as they are vitally important to your health.
The more we study
these elements, the more we learn about the vital roles they play in biological
and Zinc are known to form an antioxidant enzyme in the body called SOD
(Super Oxide Dismutase). These mineral elements have been scientifically
proven to be positively correlated to an extended lifespan. It offers
the body protection from peroxides and free radicals, which attack body
cells, causing age-related diseases such as Arthritis, Cataracts, Arteriosclerosis
and Multiple Sclerosis.
It is therefore important
that we become conscious of our daily mineral intake and not blindly rely
on our diet. Since the same foods can vary greatly in mineral content
from one person and area to another, we need to safeguard our health by
eating a great variety of mineral-rich foods and taking multi-mineral
supplements such as Lifeforce Seaweed Capsules.
Seaweed assists your body to obtain ocean minerals and trace elements
in a food state. It promotes radiant health and contributes to longevity.
You will enjoy optimal health and, in the process, become disease free.
