  • Lypo-Spheric 1000mg Vitamin C 30 Packets

    $54.99 $44.99

    Andrew’s counselling tips:

    • Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C is one of my favourite premium Vitamin C products to recommend due to it having superior absorption
    • Generally Vitamin C is not well absorbed in the gut, however, Lypo-spheric Vitamin C has been formulated where the vitamin is dispersed in a delivery vehicle so that it is easy absorbed
    • I like to suggest to customers if they don’t like the taste, squeeze the sachet into their favourite cool beverage and drink the contents in one swallow (like a shot) and to wait at least 15 minutes afterwards before eating
    • Don’t take at the same time as other natural health medications, antacids or omeprazole as it may affect it’s absorption
    • Don’t combine the sachet with hot liquid or freeze the sachets as it may affect its absorption
    • Product is sugar free, gluten free and suitable for vegetarians or vegans
    • Due to the high dose of Vitamin C contained in this product we recommend to check with your doctor before taking during pregnancy or breastfeeding

  • Mucinex Maximum Strength 1200mg 14 Tablets

    $31.99

    Andrew’s counselling tips:

    • Guaiphenesin in Mucinex belongs to a group of drugs which are expectorants. They work by loosening the mucus on your chest, clearing congestion and making it easier to breathe
    • Mucinex Maximum Strength is formulated in a bi-layer tablet meaning that you get not only fast acting relief, but extended release of the drug to help it continue to keep working through the day and night
    • Mucinex Maximum Strength is twice as strong as regular Mucinex, therefore you only need to take half the number of tablets daily
    • When your in the shower hot steam also helps to loosen up chest congestion so it’s a good time to try cough up any of the phlegm that is lingering on your chest
    • NOT to be taken in pregnancy or breastfeeding
    • Not for children under 12 years of age

  • Buccaline 7 Tablets

    $14.99

    Esther’s Counselling Tips:

    • Buccaline is pharmacies secret weapon against the secondary infections due to colds
    • It’s a great product for people who find that when they get sick, they get so sick they need to go to the doctor for antibiotics
    • Buccaline doesn’t stop you getting sick but instead provides your immune system with a low level of bacteria which creates an immune response in the body and therefore if/when you do get sick it helps the body to fight it off
    • Buccaline cannot be taken if you are currently sick or if you have had the flu vaccination in the last week
    • Buccaline provides you with 3 months antibacterial cover and therefore the course should be repeated twice during the winter season
    • It can be used in addition to, but not as an alternative to the flu vaccine (we recommend to have your flu vaccination and then a week later take a course of Buccaline)
    • NOT to be taken in pregnancy – unless recommended by a doctor

  • Otrivin Adult Nasal Spray 60 Sprays

    $12.99

    Andrew’s counselling tips:

    • Otrivin is a fantastic decongestant nasal spray which has an immediate local effect for a blocked nose within 1 to 2 minutes
    • However, overuse of Otrivin leads to a condition called ‘rebound congestion’. This is when the nasal passages get used to Otrivin’s local effect and when you stop using Otrivin your initial nasal congestion comes back, sometimes even worse than when you started
    • Therefore keep Otrivin use to a maximum of 3 days in a row, then take a break from it
    • If you’re wanting a long-term safe alternative to Otrivin, Flixonase or NeilMed could be the product for you
    • NOT to be used in pregnancy or breastfeeding

  • Nutralife Kyolic Garlic Extract 60 Capsules

    $35.99

    • Garlic is known to be a powerful antioxidant which puts your immune system into overdrive when you are sick, helping you to get better faster
