Preferred Nutrition: MenoSense, Bio Sil and EstroSense!

Categories: Energy, Hair Loss, Hormone Balancing, Hot products, Menopause, Mood, Nails Brittle, Womans Health

There is a lot of buzz about taking collagen these days.  While this will be of great benefit to those who want to improve their hair, skin, nails and joints there is another way with a product called BioSil by Preferred Nutrition!

It’s important to note that BioSil™ is not made out of collagen, it generates collagen. There’s a big difference. When you ingest collagen, the human body breaks it down and uses it as food. By contrast, BioSil’s™ patented ch-OSA complex helps your body to generate its own collagen to provide support for stronger, healthy and thicker hair; stronger nails; fewer fine lines and wrinkles; denser and more flexible bones.

What is it and what is the dosage?

Silicon (as Choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid) (ch-OSA). 6 mg

One capsule is equivalent to 6 drops of BioSil™ liquid.

Choline chloride, vegetarian capsule (hydroxypropylmethylcellulose,

water) with microcrystalline cellulose, water.


2 capsules daily or as directed by a health care practitioner

Mitsuwa Collagen Pure – The Secret to Rediant Skin

Categories: Joint Health, Nails Brittle, Skin Care, Wrinkles

Mitsuwa Collagen Pure

People know and love the Red Reishi Mushroom extract by Mikei.  Now they have you covered from head to toe with their new Collagen product to help your tendons, ligaments, skin and joints.  There are many different brands of collagen, but Mitsuwa Collagen Pure is among the best and loved already by customers, co-workers, friends and family.

Japanese women are known for having beautiful skin.  They tend to have a healthy complexion along with flawless skin… no pimples, blemishes and minimal lines/wrinkles.  What is their secret?  Japanese in general tend to eat a very healthy diet, they are active and they take supplements.  Many also are great believers in Red Reishi Mushroom which is fantastic for the whole body.  Just a refresher, Red Reishi Mushroom is used to: enhance/balance the immune system, helpful for cancer prevention as well as for cancer patients, great to help with anti-aging and energy.

Why is collagen so vital?

Collagen makes up the whole body!  It is our tendons, ligaments, joints, skin and more!  Without collagen we would fall apart.  When we have a lack of collagen it is easy to see and feel. Wrinkles start showing up, skin starts to sag and we feel more pain in our joints.  Collagen fibers make up 75% of your skin and are responsible for maintaining its structure, hydration and daily repair.  In our mid 20′s collagen really starts to break down and often the first sign is in the skin.  While it is natural to age it is worth while taking care of ourselves from the start so we can have a better quality of life.  Supplementing with Mitsuwa Collagen can help you do just that from the inside out.

Summary of Collagen Benefits:

  • Improves skin
  • Helps joint pain
  • Enhances shinny hair
  • Gets rid of brittle nails
  • Improves connective tissues such as tendons, ligaments and cartilage

Why use Mitsuwa Collagen Pure?

Mitsuwa Collagen is 100% hydrolyzed - pure and absorbable.  Collagen in its natural form is composed of complex molecules that are too large for absorption and this is why Mitsuwa Collagen uses advanced Japanese technology, which is their hydrolysis process.  What does this mean?  The hydrolysis process is an enzymatic reaction that converts collagen into fine, shorter peptides that are easy for the body to digest and metabolize.  Other benefits of taking Mitsuwa Collagen is… it is water soluble, it is in powder form (no pills!) and it does not have any taste.

How to take it?

For normal use take 1 – 2 sachets which is 2-4g of hydrolyzed collagen powder per day.

Naka Brand Silicea: For Beautiful Strong Hair Skin Nails and Bones!

Categories: Bone Health, Digestive Health, Enzymes, Hair Loss, Nails Brittle, Womans Health

Many of us especially women are always complaining about one of the following: hair, skin, nails or weak bones (osteoporosis). 

Naka Brand Silicea gel is amazing for strengthening your nails.  If you always have had ripples in your nails or if they are very thin and break all the time, this is a sure sign of a silicea deficiency.  If your hair just won’t grow and it is falling out or it is thin with no life, definitely include silicea in your vitamin regime every day!  When it comes to hair there are many components.  Protein is very important and if you are vegetarian you may want to consider vegan protein sources such as Pumpkin Seed Protein by Omega Nutrition. Or Sequel Naturals has an excellent Vegan protein meal replacement as well.  Hair is complicated to fix in that there is not always one easy solution.  Often times it is a mineral problem, protein protein, and basically nutrient absorption problem.  That is why it is also important for people to take digestive enzymes when nutrients are not getting absorbed properly.  A great brand for digestive enzymes would be: Renew Life!

Naka has a fantastic news article on their Silicea.  Hope you enjoy the read.  It is very detailed and an interesting read! 

As always thank you for reading and if you have any more questions we look forward to helping you at a location near you!!  We have been carrying the NAKA Silicea Gel for years now and our team has experienced wonderful benefits at Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus.  Also, our customers only have wonderful experiences to tell us.  The only thing is people often say it sure has a minerally taste wow! Its not awful, but to be honest it doesn’t taste delicious.  However you can dilute it in water, or mix it with a flavoured drink.  Personally I just take it straight up 1 tablespoon and you are good to go, its not that bad.  So give Naka Silicea gel a try if you are tired of brittle nails, thin hair, weak bones, and
