silicol®gel – Offers natural relief from symptoms of indigestion and IBS. silicol®gel has Medical Device classifications (Class 11A) and is a natural colloidal silicic acid to help tread heartburn, reflux and vomiting symptoms associated with indigestion. It is now able to include treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) to help relieve gastrointestinal symptoms such as; nausea, flatulence, stomach ache, discomfort and diarrhoea.
How does it work? silicol®gel contains silicic acid which is a compound of the mineral substance silicon and oxygen in a colloidal and hydrated form. Just a small amount of this highly dispersible gel creates a protective lining in the stomach and intestine. The gel acts as a magnet physically binding with toxins, irritants and pathogens which reduces their ability to cause inflammation, and renders them harmless to pass through the digestive tract. A single tablespoonful of silicol®gel, taken three times a day, has been clinically shown to normalise the function of the stomach and bowel quickly and without side effects. Used regularly, silicol®gel can also reduce excess acidity and gases to reduce bloating and discomfort. Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those intolerant to gluten. Where to buy silicol®gel is available at Holland & Barrett and independent health food stores nationwide priced £8.29 (200ml) and £18.49 (500ml). For more information visit www.silicol.co.uk
Jet Lag – Pharmacist and Nutritionist Mike Wakeman says: “Air travellers who rapidly travel across multiple time zones are the ones most likely to suffer from jet lag. And the more time zones a traveller crosses, the worse the jet lag symptoms such as insomnia, lack of appetite, disorientation, reduced alertness and inability to concentrate will be.
“Upon arrival don’t take a nap especially if is after 3pm. Take a warm bath or shower then get out into the sunlight. Daylight regulates the biological clock whereas staying indoors worsens jet lag. Exercise if you can. Adjust your mealtimes and sleeping times to the new time zone. Avoid large meals and high alcohol intake until your digestion and excretion routines are fully back to normal.
“Although many over the counter sleep aids or prescription drugs may manage short term insomnia they do not resolve the biological imbalance of jet lag and they can have deleterious side effects including short term memory loss. “In the human body, sleep is initiated during a rise in the concentration of melatonin. You need tryptophan to make melatonin to shift human circadian rhythms. An increase in melatonin alerts the body that “biological night” is starting, whereas a decline in melatonin alerts the human body that biological night is ending. It’s worth taking a natural tryptophan supplement such as Zenbev to help induce sleep at the right time in the new time zone, shifting your circadian rhythm to match the new time zone more quickly and easily.
Try: Zenbev, clinically proven natural drink formula containing a rich source of tryptophan from pumpkin seeds. Available in chocolate or lemon flavour from www.zenbev.com or www.revital.co.uk priced £24.95.
Insect Bites & Stings – Itch Gone is a natural portable medical device that quickly relieves the pain and irritation caused by insect bites, ideal for all the family and to use through light clothing. One application normally lasting for 24hours. Itch Gone works by sending tiny electrical impulses through the skin into the body so the blood circulation in that area increases to neutralise the histamine produced by the sting/bite, stopping histamine release in the affected area, which helps to relieve the itching. The electrical impulses also initiate the production of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, to soothe the uncomfortable effects of the bite/sting. Rashes, inflammation, skin redness and blistering fade away much quicker than normal. Itch Gone is available from www.jdharris.co.uk priced £10.16.

You feel a small sensation with each click. Repeat treatment as and when required – you cannot overdose. Itch Gone is completely natural and has no side-effects. Does not require batteries and provides up to 1,000 treatments.
