Fact or Fiction: Does protein make you bulky?

Fact or Fiction: Does protein make you bulky?

Luckily, we have largely moved away from the myth that eating fat makes you fat, but instead, we have replaced it with the fear that protein is the culprit for unwanted fat gain instead. With nutrition science, things are rarely black and white, and the role of protein in our diet is no different.

Algae: what are the benefits?

Algae: what are the benefits?

Eating algae sounds unappealing, right? But algae is actually one of the most nutrient-dense additions you can make to your diet.  Whether you’re plant-based or meat-eating, algae offers a rich source of key minerals and vitamins which are often lacking from our grab-and-go lifestyle.

The Nutrition Gap: What You Need To Know

We all know that eating well is the foundation for good health - there are no shortcuts to success on this front. But, what is less well known is that even with the best intentions and a very balanced diet - many of us still fall short of optimum nutrient intake. And this isn’t just because we are eating the ‘wrong foods’ it’s simply because of the environment we live in and the nature of modern life. But, don’t despair - this is where targeted supplementation fits in. Whilst we always want to promote a food-first approach, there is now...
