Eating a nutritious and balanced diet is vitally important if we are to live a healthy and happy life. Food and drink provides different types of nutrients; some that provide us with the energy we need for day to day living and others to help us repair, grow and maintain a healthy body.
Health Benefits – Academics and scientists after years of research have proven and are continuing to prove that eating well does offer many long term benefits such as, reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other common conditions.
Immune System – Our immune system needs balance and harmony and can be massively influenced and affected by the environment around us e.g. smoking, stress, germs and bacteria. The good news is that our immune system can be boosted by a good night’s sleep, maintaining a healthy weight, regular exercise and eating plenty of fruit, vegetables and whole foods.
Power of Sleep – Adequate sleep is necessary for healthy functioning. Sleep helps to regulate mood and can assist in learning and improve our memory. Lack of sleep can result in lower energy levels and low mood and also our ability to commit to regular exercise and stick to healthy eating habits.
Low Mood – Whole foods and those high in antioxidants have been proven to improve our mood and result in a much lower risk of depression.
Food Supplements – We should be able to obtain most of the nutrients we need for a healthy body from our diet but unfortunately because of the changes in farming methods, our soil is now depleted of essential minerals and often polluted with pesticides and artificial fertilizers. Also time constraints of a busy lifestyle often results in poor food choices so that we do not get the variety of foods needed for a balanced nutritious diet. For those looking for optimum health, taking natural supplement can be enormously beneficial.

Here at Power for Health we truly believe that we should provide our bodies with the best food possible and it is for that very reason that we choose to eat fresh organically grown fruit and vegetables and meat whenever we can. Whilst organically grown and reared produce is now widely available at supermarkets throughout the UK, we personally like to support local farmers and growers, supporting the local economy and being kinder to the environment because the produce does not have to travel long distances.
Whilst there are many organic farms that now supply directly to the public, we choose to buy and support Riverford Organic Farms. Originally the business started on a farm in Devon in 1987 and came up with the idea of delivering boxes of fresh produce to people in the surrounding area. Before long the demands were so high that they have partnered with three other organic farmers throughout the UK and deliver more than 47,000 boxes a week.
“We think that small scale organic family farms are the most sustainable way of producing food here in the UK. All of our suppliers look after their soil, livestock and wildlife by farming respectfully and in tune with nature. We only sell food that we think is truly outstanding, made by people we know and trust.”
