Qsilica® - formula breakthrough!  A natural preservation system discovery

Planet Health invests substantially in stability testing to ensure the shelf life and safety of all Qsilica Colloidal Silica Gel products.  Until now Planet Health have used a safe and effective system containing the food preservative Sodium Benzoate in our “Original” Gel formulation.  Now we have discovered a “breakthrough” in natural preservation for Colloidal Silica Gel using a pure Lemongrass essential oil base.  As a result we have decided to move away from the use of Sodium Benzoate.  This technically advanced Lemongrass preservation system has an improved and refreshing citrus-like natural flavour.  The premium Colloidal Silica active ingredient in Qsilica Colloidal Silica Gel remains unchanged so the same amazing results will continue!

Ensure Healthy Glowing Skin for Summer

The term feed your face takes on a whole new meaning when it comes to maintaining healthy, glowing skin.
Most of us invest much time and money into our skincare regime, but we tend to focus on topical products rather than also considering the food that we put into our bodies. Feeding our skin from the inside is vital if you want to keep it looking young and healthy and maintain long-term health, which no amount of expensive creams will provide on their own.
As we recover from the drying effects of winter and spend more time outdoors in the sun, it’s a great time to think about how we can best help our skin look great by feeding it from the inside with nourishing and healing nutrients.

Efamol Efalex – Parents need to be discerning when choosing an omega 3 supplement for their children.

Leading UK researcher and author Dr Alex Richardson says parents need to be discerning when choosing dietary supplements such as fish oil for children. Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids have been shown to help children who experience difficulty with their behaviour, concentration or focus. Dietary sources are sometimes not adequate and supplementation can then be the best option. Some omega 3 & 6 supplements marketed at children contain many of the additives parents are trying to avoid, in order to make the products palatable and attractive for kids.
