    Scanning the body daily – Linctagon®

    We install anti-virus programmes to scan our computers to identify, stop and fix viruses and threats. We check local radio stations to find out if there are any problems on the routes we plan to take. We get our banks to send an sms each time there is activity on our bank accounts. Checking for threats, catch them early, great idea. So, what about our bodies?

    Upbeat supplements for upbeat people – Go!®

    However far you want to go, Go! nutritional supplements from Nativa will help get you there.
    Modern life is fast and exciting. We are built for speed; comfort can come later. So we’re in the gym, on our bicycles, pounding the streets. We study at night and are in meetings all day. We enjoy the journey as well as the destination. And then the fast lane catches up with us and suddenly we feel flat and demotivated. One cold or infection after the other puts us down.

    Sharing meals with unborn baby – Mom2B®

    Sting captured it well in the opening lines of his song: “Every breath you take, every move you make … every step you take, I’ll be watching you. Every single day, and every word you say…”

  • Let the Zimmer frames wait – we’re keeping our bones strong! – RadiCAL®

    Let the Zimmer frames wait – we’re keeping our bones strong! – RadiCAL®

    Did you know that healthy bones have a tensile and compressional strength similar to that of reinforced concrete? And that around 10% of bone is reabsorbed and rebuilt every year, so that our skeletons regenerate over 10 years? Take that, science fiction writers! Without this ongoing breaking down and rebuilding, our bones would not be able to repair themselves and reinforce weak spots, and would often break.

  • Are your joints freezing up? – OsteoEze®

    Are your joints freezing up? – OsteoEze®

    It begins slowly. Then we become aware that our hips usually feel stiff when we get up after sitting for a long time. Or our knees start aching for no apparent reason. And fingers! Definitely achy. What’s this, rings are trapped behind knobbly knuckles? The doctor’s verdict is a bit of a surprise and leaves us rather outraged: “But I’m not that old. What have I done? How much will this limit my lifestyle? Am I doomed to move like an old person?”

    When the road is long – Turbovite®

    Holiday plans have been made. The family and pets are loaded into the car and off we drive to our much anticipated year-end or mid-year break. South Africa’s a big country blessed with wonderful leisure opportunities. Whether we head off to somewhere along our extensive coastline or an exciting inland destination, a long drive there and back is usually part of the holiday.

    Stop lice from getting a-head – Controlice®

    Oh the shock and shame the first time our little prince or princess gets sent home from school for having head lice! And then those sweet little faces, confused and sort of guilty, as if they have done something wrong. To say nothing of the devastating blow to the heart and stomach of mom, who realizes that she has to confront these horrid tiny crawlers and rid the family of them.

  • Developing inner confidence – Femagene®

    Developing inner confidence – Femagene®

    As women we are products of the time and place in which we are born and raised. For instance, the Downton Abbey TV series presents a fascinating insight into how people were expected to dress and behave a hundred years ago. It made me think: are today’s women, freed of those restrictive social codes, happier and more confident than those of an earlier era?

    Pregnancy nutrition for mom and baby – Mom2B®

    The old wives’ tale that a pregnant woman could expect to lose a tooth for every baby is fortunately not true. If a woman doesn’t get enough calcium during her pregnancy her bones, not her teeth, will provide what her growing baby needs. However it is true that an expectant woman’s body will divert necessary nutrients to her little one within and this of course can lead to mom being depleted of certain minerals and nutrients.

  • Head lice – better safe than sorry! – Controlice®

    Head lice – better safe than sorry! – Controlice®

    Head lice are an international and growing problem because they are very difficult to eradicate. One of their clever life style habits (from their point of view) is that their eggs, the nits which cling to the hair, hatch seven days after laying. So unless mom’s army mounts a determined second attack and treats the hair again seven days after killing off adult lice with the first treatment, nits will simply hatch and start their infestation all over again.

    Breastfeeding with confidence – Mom2B®

    The birth of a first baby is exciting but rather daunting for most first time moms-to-be. Many of us build confidence from antenatal and new baby preparation classes, reading about what to expect and asking advice from experienced moms, often our own. Others take comfort from the fact that baby is going to be born whatever mental preparations are made or not. Birthing experts will be there to help them through it anyway!

    Show off those summer legs! – Venavine®

    Legs are out in the open in summer. Walking on the beach. Lounging around the pool. Shopping in little skirts. Gardening in shorts. It’s a sun-kissed look that is part of the South African way of life.

  • Controlice wins the war against head lice in 1-2-3 easy steps

    Controlice wins the war against head lice in 1-2-3 easy steps

    Head lice can be difficult to treat due to a high re-infestation rate and their ability to develop resistance to traditional insecticides contained in some over-the-counter medications. However the Controlice® range contains plant oils as well as a dimethicone variant. Because of the composition and mechanism of action of the active ingredients, head lice cannot become resistant to these products.

    Who thinks about their bones? – RadiCAL®

    As youngsters our bones are the last thing we think about. We only start taking notice of them when we get older and medical professionals talk to us about loss of bone density.
