Miscellaneous Products Waterfall Diet Aids

BioCare One-A-Day Multi Vitamins/Minerals A well-formulated, high quality multinutrient formula.

BioCare Liquid Multi Vitamins A well-absorbed liquid vitamin formula. Can be used by the whole family (just give fewer drops to children).

BioCare Vitamin C as Powdered Magnesium Ascorbate I use this one when I’ve got a cold and want to take large amounts of vitamin C in a gentle form dissolved in water.

BioCare Vitamin C 500mg (magnesium ascorbate and bilberry) I take this one every day.

BioCare Liquid Vitamin A I sometimes take a drop or two of this one though I’m more likely to mix a little with moisturiser and use it on my skin.

BioCare Zinc Citrate Tablets Zinc citrate is well-absorbed and many people don’t get enough zinc in their diet.

BioCare Osteoplex (bone health formula) This is a well-formulated product.

BioCare Pregnancy & Lactation Formula

BioCare Acetyl Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid Carnitine is an amino acid involved in fat-burning, and there is now much interesting research into lipoic acid and blood sugar.

Lamberts Alpha Lipoic Acid

BioCare CoQ10 Coenzyme Q10 is an important nutrient involved in the body’s energy production process.

BioCare Acidophilus Vegecaps This is a high quality product which I have always used as it does the job.

BioCare Oregano Complex (anti-yeast formula) I love this product and use it a lot with my clients.

BioCare Grapefruit Seed Extract I sometimes also use this one as an anti-yeast formula.

BioCare Agnus Castus, Motherwort, Red Clover This is a gentle women’s health formula. Agnus castus is known to support the body’s production of progesterone, which is often too low when women have hormonal issues.

Bioforce Agnus Castus Herbal Tincture

Floradix Liquid Iron Formula 250ml This is my favoured iron formula and I take it myself frequently.

Floradix Horsetail Fresh Plant Juice In a study by Dr. Louis Kervran, rats with broken bones healed twice as fast when given silica compared with those given calcium. It’s well worth googling him and you may come to the same conclusion as I did: that silica (especially if taken with magnesium) is a better supplement for maintaining bone strength than calcium. The herb horsetail is a very rich source of silica.

Swanson Horsetail (natural silica) capsules

Seven Seas Traditional Cod Liver Oil I take these cod liver oil capsules regularly for vitamins A and D.

Lepicol Whole Psyllium Husks I always recommend whole psyllium husks rather than powdered. They are much easier to stir into water. Psyllium can absorb up to 100 times its volume of water and is an excellent fibre supplement for bowel health.

Swanson Uva-Ursi (Bearberry) I use this herb a lot with clients as part of a bowel detox programme.

Higher Nature Lutein and Zeaxanthin These are two key nutrients for eye health.

Higher Nature Cats Claw Capsules Cat’s Claw (Una de Gato) is an immune-boosting herb ‘par excellence’.

Higher Nature Cats Claw Tea Bags

Lamberts Glucosamine Sulphate You will need to take two of these a day to get the 1500 mg recommended by scientists for joint health.

Lamberts Glucosamine and Chondroitin Some say that glucosamine is more effective when combined with chondroitin – another important component of cartilage.

Nanny Care Goat Milk Infant Nutrition 900g There is a question mark over the safety of soy milk infant formulas for babies. If your baby is intolerant to cow’s milk, goat’s milk formula may be the answer. Contact Vitacare for more information.

Kordel’s Horse Chestnut and Butcher’s Broom New research suggests these herbs help to support the health of small blood vessels and reduce the appearance of swollen legs.

BioCare Ginkgo Biloba and Bilberry Extract These two nutritional herbs are also recommended in the Waterfall Diet book for their flavonoid content.

BioCare Celery Seed Vegicaps I use this regularly with clients.

FSC Gotu Kola Extract Tincture This herb is also good for small blood vessels and has been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Add a few drops to herbal tea.

BioCare Red Clover Extract Red clover is rich in coumarin, which helps macrophages break down proteins in the tissue spaces.

Higher Nature Bromelain Bromelain, an extract from pineapples, has been tested on injured athletes. Its helpful effects are thought to be due to its ability to break down proteins in the tissue spaces. Also used as a digestive aid.

Floradix Black Radish Organic Fresh Plant Juice This will come in handy if you don’t want to juice your own radishes. Radish juice is excellent for thyroid gland health.

Pukka Clarity Tea A spice tea combination which helps to boost yang energy in the body. In Traditional Chinese Medicine yang tonics are said to drive away excess fluid.

Lamberts Magnesium Citrate tablets Magnesium citrate is a very well-absorbed form of magnesium. I take this product myself almost every day.

I take many of these products and supplements myself. These are supplied through Amazon.co.uk who are well known for speed of shipping and value for money. You can use the same account that you use for buying books. For recommended products  in the USA, click here.
