JOINT HEALTH RECIPES:

Pineapple, Celery & Ginger Smoothie:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 large fresh pineapple
  • 2 fresh celery stalks
  • 2.5cm piece of fresh ginger root

METHOD:

  1. Prepare the pineapple by cutting off each end. Then, slice off the skin in a downward direction. This minimizes waste. Remove “eyes” from the flesh of the pineapple, and then cut half of the flesh into manageable chunks.
  2. Chop the celery stalks into small pieces.
  3. Peel the ginger and chop finely.
  4. Place all the ingredients into a blender, along with a tiny amount of water, and blend into a smooth fragrant drink.

Rainbow Salad:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 slices of red cabbage
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1 handful of baby spinach Small handful of parsley For the dressing:
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Viridian Joint Omega Oil

METHOD:

  1. Prepare the salad by shredding the cabbage, grating the carrot, finely chopping the pepper, and adding to the whole baby spinach leaves and parsley.
  2. Prepare the dressing in a small bowl. Finely chop the garlic, add a pinch of salt and all the other wet ingredients. Mix well, and pour over the salad. Toss the salad well, and serve.

Anti-inflammatory Curry:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 red onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 green chilies, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
  • 1 heaped teaspoon turmeric
  • 800g sweet potato, diced with skins left on
  • 375 ml vegetable stock
  • 150g spinach, coarsely chopped
  • Large handful of fresh coriander leaves, coarsely torn
  • 1 tablespoon toasted flaked almonds
  • 1 tablespoon Viridian Joint Omega Oil

METHOD:

  1.  Heat the oil in a large saucepan and cook the onion, garlic, ginger and chilli.
  2. When the onion has softened, add all the spices and heat until they are becoming fragrant.
  3. Add the sweet potato and stock and simmer for about 15-20 minutes until the sweet potato is soft. At this point add the spinach.
  4. Once the spinach has wilted, the curry is ready to serve with coriander leaves, topped with flaked almonds and a drizzle of Viridian Joint Omega Oil. It is best served with brown rice to increase its nutritional profile further.

Purity matters at Viridian 

Did you know that 50% of a tablet is made up of glues, known as binders, to hold the tablet together? For most people this is just an irritating fact, but for people who are hyper allergenic, this can be a real issue. Would you add magnesium stearate, stearic acid, shellac, talc or colourings to your meal, in the way you’d sprinkle over salt or pepper? Neither would we. By making our capsules, liquids and powders as pure and simple as possible, avoiding all the nasties, we have shown that it is possible to make a range of nutritional supplements acceptable for the majority of people. From the seed to the recycling bank More than 40% of the Viridian Nutrition range is certified organic by the Soil Association, guaranteeing the provenance and eco-friendliness of the ingredients. All the Viridian fresh organic tinctures and ointments are grown and traditionally made in the UK, reducing the environmental impact of transporting ingredients around the world. Our capsules and organic nutritional oils are manufactured in the UK, creating local jobs. We use minimum packaging for our products, all made from recycled or recyclable materials, from our glass bottles to the recycled cardboard shipping boxes. We take responsibility for our packaging, too, offering a 25p refund for bottles returned to the health store where purchased. Guaranteed passion We are passionate about: • 100% active ingredients • No nasty additives • UK manufacture • Green business practices • Supporting the community • Organics • Non-GM • Non-irradiated

Nutrition Fundamentals

Nutrition is the fundamental cornerstone to human health. Every single reaction, biochemical pathway, and physiological event that takes place in our bodies, requires nutrients at some stage. An elaborate and perfectly organised sequence of vitamins, minerals, fats, and amino acids, allow our bodies to function on a day to day basis. However, when our needs in this area are not met, things can quickly begin to go awry.

Therefore it is essential that we pay serious attention to our daily diet. A diet based around whole foods, fruits vegetables, and the right types of fats can be the greatest health insurance we can have. Nutritional supplementation is also a practical tool. It is a sad fact that in today’s modern world, we cannot rely 100% upon the quality and nutrient density of even the best fresh produce, due to intensive farming, depleted soils and environmental factors. Coupled with this, we have far greater physical demands placed upon us, meaning that very often our requirements for specific nutrients are higher than they ever have been if we are able to cope physiologically. Nutritional supplements, when used correctly can be a valuable tool in addressing such issues.

Government surveys have identified the following groups of people as being at especial risk from low vitamin and mineral intakes: highly active people, menstruating women, vegetarians and vegans, the elderly, slimmers, pregnant and breast-feeding women, smokers, drinkers and faddy eaters.
