When your body experiences enough impact with another surface or object, it has a reaction. Essentially, in these moments of trauma, the blood vessels closest to the outer layers of your skin burst, causing blood to flow to the surface; the result is a nice black-and-blue bruise (and maybe a decorative bump). In order for the bruised area to heal, your blood vessels need to stop stressing and allow the blood (in the bruise) to be absorbed back into the body1. Therefore, one of the major reasons homeopathic Arnica is so successful against bruising is because of its relaxing effect on the body’s blood vessels
If you want to help a bruise heal more rapidly than it would if left unattended, you can apply a dose of topical Arnica to the affected area. Topical Arnica is usually best for skin bruises; however, homeopathic Arnica tablets can also be helpful.3 Arnica bruise ointment is available in many forms, including gel, cream, and even in a stick.
The diverse delivery methods of homeopathic Arnica make it a great option for all sorts of bruises. Many parents use Arnica for kids. Since children and toddlers so frequently take a tumble, Arnica is an excellent first aid remedy to have on hand. Similarly, Arnica can be incredibly helpful for athletes who need to heal quickly and get back in the game. Using Arnica is easy, fast, and painless – the perfect combination for bruise relief.

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.

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.
