SOUTHERN VIEW Tuesday August 23 2016 15 FOCUS ON HEALTH Proven formula combats colds & flu Research has shown certain herbs and natural ingredients can dramatically reduce the chances of succumbing to colds and flu. One example of a proven formula is Go Healthy ‘Go Vir-Defence’. Due to the high potency extracts it contains, one or two capsules daily are usually sufficient to keep the immune system at optimum efficiency; however, at the onset of headaches, sore throat, body aches etc. the dose should be increased to one or two capsules up to three times daily. Go Vir-Defence contains: Olive Leaf Extract - a popular ingredient used in the treatment of immune attacks for its strong anti-microbial properties. Garlic Extract - effective in combatting bacteria, viruses and fungi and supporting the immune system. Andrographis Extract - has powerful immune-enhancing properties. Echinacea Extract - a natural antibiotic and infection fighter. Pau D’ Arco Extract - helps enhance the immune system. Citrus Bioflavonoids - work with Vitamin C and support the immune system as well as strengthening capillaries and reducing inflammation. Vitamin C - a powerful antioxidant that helps counteract bacteria and viral infections. Elderberry Extract - provides immune support. Zinc - an essential mineral for the immune system and general health. Vir-Defence is available from Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, phone 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help! Essential nutrients for health & vitality After noticing patients were experiencing gut, bowel and digestive issues that often led to more serious chronic health conditions, two Australian Naturopaths conducted extensive research. This revealed that although the patients were generally eating good food, they were not obtaining all the nutrients required for good health, with one of the main problems being the digestive system. Also, with the soils crops are grown in being depleted of many trace elements and other essential nutrients, the crops are also depleted. If we do not obtain all the required nutrients, our body will compensate to some degree, but a lack of too many nutrients will eventually lead to health issues. Knowing this, the naturopaths developed Vital Greens, a nutrientdense powdered formula that provides superior absorption and comprehensive nutrition. Vital Greens contains a balanced blend of nutritionally rich ARTHRITIS Boost circulation and gently exercise while you sit – it’s so easy!

Father’s Day - Keep Dad on his toes Every three hours a New Zealand man dies from a preventable disease. Yet most “blokes” wait until something goes wrong before seeking help!

Small lifestyle changes can prevent or delay the onset of many health problems.
