From energy and relaxation to digestion, immunity, beauty, women’s health and more. We have the right solution for wellness every day.
Various factors may affect daily wellbeing, but there is a lot we can do to support various systems of the body. Factors such as a whole food diet rich in fruit and vegetables, lean protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals all contribute an individual’s daily wellbeing.
Eating oily fish 2-3 times a week has been shown to support heart health. Or we can take an Omega-3 supplement to get our quota. Omega- 3’s play a role as an anti-inflammatory, and also have structural roles within the eye and brain. Omega 6 and 9 help to lower maintain
LDL cholesterol levels. Diets high in Omega-3 have been found in many studies to significantly reduce the risk of developing heart disease. Not all fats are good for the heart. We should avoid trans fats, which often appear on food labels as hydrogenated vegetable oil
and are mostly found in convenience and processed foods. A multivitamin is the foundation of any nutritional supplement programme. It typically contains a variety of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that work together to help support the metabolism, growth and physical wellbeing. Food processing, intensive farming and prolonged food storage are just some of the factors that diminish the nutritional value of the food that we eat. Eating a seemingly healthy diet may still lead to nutrient deficiencies. Taking a good quality multivitamin and mineral
formula each day is a good way of ensuring an intake of nutrients sufficient to promote optimal health.

A healthy prostate gland is about the size of a walnut and is involved in the manufacturing of semen and the maintenance of sperm health. There are several common health disorders involving the prostate gland. Prostatitis causes inflammation and infection of the gland and commonly affects men aged 25-45. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common prostate disorder seen in men over the age of 45. In BPH, the gland slowly enlarges and results in symptoms such as difficulty in starting to urinate, frequent urination during the night and difficulty in emptying the bladder completely. There are many nutrients and herbs that have been shown to support prostate health. As
prevention is always better than cure, there are many dietary measures that you can take in order to boost the health of this important gland.
Researchers have found a link between a high-fat diet (low in fruit and vegetables) and diseases of the prostate gland. It is suspected that this is because heavy fat consumption is associated with an increase in testosterone levels, which in turn could stimulate the overgrowth
of the prostate.
Saw Palmetto Opuntia Lycopene Complex
A woman’s body is complex. Regulation of hormones, fertility and pregnancy, maintenance of bone density, reproductive and urinary tract health, immune function and healthy weight management are just some of the concerns women have and need assistance with.
Getting enough of the right nutrients may help improve fertility, pregnancy (both pre and post natal) and baby development. Prenatal supplements are a good way to top up on nutrients essential for mother and baby health. It is recommended that 400ug of folic acid is
consumed by women of childbearing age, daily. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor for the development of neural tube.

Many aspire to the belief that ‘we are what we eat’, but a more accurate statement may be ‘we are what we absorb’. In fact nothing is more important to our health and wellbeing than a healthy digestive system, especially when you consider that on 100 tonnes of
food will pass along the digestive tract in a life time.
The foundation for good health always begins with a healthy and varied diet including a variety of fruit and vegetables a day, but keeping the gut healthy to digest these important nutrients is equally as important. Digestive enzymes contained in supplements have been shown to aid in the digestive process by ensuring the complete breakdown of food into its component parts- glucose, amino acids, etc.
The digestive tract is also home to billions of beneficial bacteria. A healthy digestive tract contains approximately 1 kg of these microscopic organisms. They help to prevent colonisation of the gut by unfriendly bacteria, yeast and parasites while feeding on fibre to create organic acids that can be used for energy production by the gut and help maintain a normal intestinal environment.

Fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, thinning skin, weak and dull hair and splitting nails are some of the signs of ageing and environmental damage we may experience as our body’s age. Collagen and elastin are the main proteins that are responsible for strength and elasticity in
the skin, and keratin is the main protein responsible for strength in nails and hair. As we age, collagen is exposed to various elements that can damage its structure or slow down its repair and renewal, including:
– Environmental stressors- free radical damage from pollution, UV exposure, cigarette smoke, pesticides, certain prescription drugs, weather changes and poor air quality.
– Lifestyle factors- stress, poor diet, poor fluid intake and nutritional deficiencies may trigger the formation of Advance Glycation End Products (AGEs) that further affect collagen and also trigger the production of even more of these damaging molecules.
Important factors required for skin, nail and hair health:
– Protein (especially sulphur-based amino acids like L- glutathione and L- cysteine and NAC)
– Vitamins A, C and E as well as biotin
– Minerals – zinc, copper, silica, boron and calcium

Physical activity can help you stay healthy, improve general wellbeing and reduce certain disease risk factors. However with this increased activity both stress and overuse of the body’s joints can occur. This brings with it both a risk of joint discomfort and pain, which can make being active more difficult. Osteoarthritis (OA) is by far the number one joint health problem causing pain for one in three adults in Europe and over half of over 65 year olds globally. Cartilage plays a vital role in the health of our joints. It forms the cushioning substance between the bones to prevent friction that would occur if the bone was rubbing on bone. Water also plays a major role in joint health, as it is needed for lubrication.
Key bone, joint and muscle health nutrients include:
– Calcium, magnesium and zinc
– UC-II undenatured Type II cartilage

The production of energy within the body is a highly complex process but ultimately begins with the consumption of food. Food should contain all the required macronutrients (fats, proteins and carbohydrates) as well as required micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals.
Of particular concern, however, is that soils are depleted of various minerals particularly selenium, copper, magnesium and iron. Plants grown in depleted soil may be deficient in these minerals. We ingest minerals by eating plants that absorb them from the earth and by
eating meat from animals, which graze on plants. Minerals such as magnesium are particularly important in energy production and muscle health and current intakes are low in many parts of the world.
Minerals are essential for the body to survive and carry out daily functions, including:
– Helping regulate cellular respiration
– Production of energy- required as important cofactors in the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate)
– Helping maintain normal heart rhythm, muscle contractility and neural conductivity B vitamins play a role in helping the body release energy from food and are required in the production of ATP. Certain B vitamins may be depleted as we age or due to digestive concerns, some medications or just low intake. B12 and iron are particularly important for red blood cell formation.

Relaxation plays an important role in good health and wellbeing throughout our lives and helps our bodies recharge. Getting a good night’s sleep can protect our mental health, physical health, quality of life and safety. Lack of rest and relaxation can have negative impacts on your physical health; increasing obesity risk, high blood pressure, heart disease and hormonal imbalances. An example of this is an imbalance in “fullness hormones”, resulting in us feeling hungry when we are tired, leading to an increased risk of becoming overweight.
The brain relies on sleep to be able to function properly throughout the day, helping support optimal mental performance. Lack of sleep has been shown to negatively impact decision making, problem solving, mental wellbeing and emotional control.
The immune system relies on sleep to function properly too. When we are run down or stressed our sleep quality is normally affected and can mean it becomes harder to fight off common illnesses. Specific botanicals, vitamins and minerals and amino acids help us relax and support a natural sleep cycle.
Having a healthy heart and vascular system starts with eating a diet high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Consuming oily fish rich in Omega-3 has also been shown to be helpful in maintaining heart health. However, for some individuals, this is not enough as stress, genetics, certain medications and other lifestyle disorders may impact how well the heart works.
Our hearts and blood vessels are responsible for transporting nutrients, oxygen and hormones all over the body. If our circulation is not optimal either due to damaged blood vessels or a heart that cannot pump effectively, we will ultimately be deprived of the nutrients and oxygen we need to thrive. The most common heart concerns include high blood pressure and high cholesterol which may lead to strokes and heart attacks.
Every minute of every day, our immune system is under attack from pollution, germs, viruses and stress. A weakened immune system is susceptible not only to colds and flu and infection but also to more serious health conditions. There are many enemies to the immune system, including:
Viruses, bacteria and fungi
Protozoa and parasites
Mutated and malfunctioning cells
Airborne parasites such as pollen and pollutants
The body has many physical, chemical and immunological processes in order to deal with these potential threats and each one of these mechanisms relies upon adequate nutrient intake. Strengthening the immune system through good nutrition is one key way to support
overall health. Foods rich in coloured compounds such as berries and other fruits provide a rich source of compounds called phytochemicals that help feed the demand of a fully functioning immune system.
Beta Glucans and Elderberry Immune Complex
Wild Oregano Oil
Full Potency extracts are made from the same amount of raw herb being used every time, a 4:1 extract for example, being 4g raw herb to make 1g extract. This means that the amount of active ingredients, such as ginsenosides in the Korean ginseng, may vary slightly
from batch to batch depending on the source of the raw material and due to natural variances in harvests.
Standardised Full Potency extracts are made to ensure that the active ingredient does not vary, eg. the ginsenosides will always be concentrated to a standard 8% of the extract – this might be achieved by a 10:1 extract for one batch, but another might need 8:1 or 11:1
depending on the potency of the raw material.
Our Standardised Full Potency herbs are generally considered more potent than the Full Potency and because the active ingredients are always to exactly the same strength, the results do not differ from bottle to bottle. However the Full Potency range will likely have
higher levels of other less well studied compounds because of the whole herb extract. The raw herb powder is added to the majority of both our Standardised Full Potency and Full Potency products to ensure that all of the synergistic compounds present in the original
herb are also present in the final product providing the best of both worlds. ® SOLGAR specialises in various botanical extracts.
