  • Symprove is a water-based multi-strain supplement that contains four unique varieties of live activated bacteria. These include L rhamnosus, E. faecium, L. acidophilus, and L. plantarum. Normally a healthy gut would already contain all four of these, along with many other types of bacteria. Diet and lifestyle can cause these to become unbalanced. Maintaining a healthy balance of bacteria in the gut is the key to good digestive health. Inside a typical intestine, billions of active bacteria work together in a special symbiotic relationship to both maintain general health as well as basic physiological processes such as breaking down food. In today’s fast-paced environment it is easy to disrupt the balance of bacteria in the gut with an irregular diet, a course of antibiotics or just the general stresses of everyday life. Symprove, an innovative, water-based supplement, backed by 25 years of science and research, can help restore this balance. […]

  • The goal of IHS is to be a centre of excellence for education and training in nutrition and health. We are committed to furthering the standards of practice for training in Ireland, the UK and the rest of the world. To achieve this goal we have developed up-to-date and scientifically relevant course material and have established a passionate team of personal tutors, unit leaders and lecturers. At IHS we believe that our present health and future health is the sum of our genetics, diet, lifestyle choices, environment and emotions. As no two humans have exactly the same combination of the these factors, the symptoms suffered by one person may not have the same root cause as in someone else. We therefore consider that there is no one treatment option to resolve any common health concern in all sufferers. We believe that a healthy, nutritious diet and health promoting lifestyle is […]
  • Spoonful Botanical is a blend of the highest quality herbs and spices (Tumeric, Ginger, Cinnamon and many more) combined with fermented fruits that can relieve everyday joint pain with one spoonful daily, and help you live your best life. Our idea stemmed from travelling across Asia by members of our family. Peter Grimes went to India on a Bord Bia innovation trip and saw how food really was medicine. The large spice markets were an eye opener and a reminder that good food can lead to a longer healthier life. Conor Grimes & Jayne Gavin travelled to Indonesia in 2016, where they too saw how the locals use herbs and spices for medicinal purposes. Travelling encouraged us to uncover and experience all that is new, and re-evaluate what is already known. Spoonful Botanical’s recipe is based on Indian folk knowledge that combines 16 herbs and spices along with fermented fruits, […]
