How are your cholesterol levels?

Posted by mapphess on 15 October 2015

Is your cholesterol under control?

It's important to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, including a healthy cholesterol balance (HDL/LDL ratio) as it helps support a healthy heart and cardiovascular system.

Nuvexa is a new product to the Australian market, but it has been researched overseas for over 10 years. Each tablet binds up to 9g of dietary fat, helping to prevent it from being absorbed by the body. Nuvexa contains FBCx®, an innovative fibre which has been shown to preferentially bind to trans & saturated fats.

If your body cannot absorb the fats from your diet, then it can help prevent dietary fat being converted into cholesterol. Nuvexa can help reduce up to 54g of fat from being absorbed form your diet each day. This is equivalent to over 480 calories!

Clinical trials have shown this product helps maintain healthy blood lipid levels. It is also very well tolerated with no know drug interactions.

If you are concerned about your cholesterol levels, come in to Mapp & Hession Pharmacy and have a talk to our pharmacists Paul, Colin or Greg.

Is It OK To Use The "C" Word?

Is It OK To Use The "C" Word?

A word reviled by so many people, we get more complaints about this word than any other!
Cholesterol!! There, I’ve said it. A lot of people don’t understand what it is, they’ve just been told they have too much of it. There’s no symptoms, but suddenly you have to watch it and, for a lot
of people, take medication for the rest of your life because of it.
Too much cholesterol in your blood stream starts to park itself in your arteries. More and more builds up forming a lump on the inside of your blood vessels making it narrower. Now blood has a harder time getting past this build-up so the blood pressure starts to rise putting more stress on your heart. If part of this build up comes loose, then it can lodge in the smaller vessels in you brain or lungs and this causes a stroke!
So, cholesterol is important! The good news is there are two types, “good” and “bad”. Just as the “bad” cholesterol lays cholesterol down in you arteries, “good” cholesterol has the opposite effect. You can raise your “good” cholesterol by exercising more, cutting down on the “bad” fats in your diet (remember, cholesterol-free food can still increase your cholesterol!) and increasing whole grains such as oats.

A good quality fish oil is essential for anyone watching their cholesterol and there is heaps of research to back this up. Just be careful, as “oils aint oils”. Cod liver oil is the wrong type for this purpose, the studies we’ve seen show, in our opinion, krill oil still requires more research, and ask to see the heavy metal (mercury and lead) levels in the product you are buying.
Coenzyme Q10 is another important supplement as is bergamot.
Cholesterol is a divisive and confusing subject, but a very important one. If you would like more information, please come in and talk to
us. As pharmacists and naturopaths, we have extensive information on traditional and alternative therapies

Remove Toxic Chemicals From The Home

Posted by mapphess on 18 June 2014
Remove Toxic Chemicals From The Home
If you’ve ever wondered about the chemicals in your household cleaning products, then you are
not alone. You may have tried more natural alternatives and been disappointed with the results.
We felt the same, and searched for a safe, effective product range that did the job, but was
non-toxic.
We came across a product range from Murchison-Hume. Developed by a couple in Sydney,this
range of cleaning products is free from artificial ingredients and is completely safe to use around
food preparation areas and children and pets. It is based around a colloidal sugar product that has
been used industrially to clean up oil spills.
Even though there are products in the range for cleaning the bathroom (”Boys Bathroom Cleaner” so named because the couple have
two young boys) through to glass cleaners and dishwashing detergents, there are basically three ingredients in each product. Sugar, water
and natural fragrance mixed in different ratios. (Imagine finishing cleaning and all you smell is a pleasant natural fragrance.)
I know a pharmacy is not the natural place you think of to get your home cleaning products, but harsh chemical cleaners are enough of a
health issue that we felt the need to stock this range. Plus, they are amazingly effective at cleaning! We had one customer who usually used
heavy duty products to clean his BBQ, but decided to give the “Counter Intelligence” surface spray a go instead. He said his BBQ was back
to “showroom condition” and he’ll never go back to the old products again!
The products are inexpensively priced and are beautifully packaged. You’ll want to sit them on the kitchen bench rather than under the
sink! And they are not tested on animals and are completely non toxic.
For a limited time, if you purchase over $20 worth of Murchison-Hume products from Mapp & Hession Pharmacy you receive a voucher for
a punnet of organic seedlings from Farmers Choice Organics Nursery in Wollumbin St.
