Forever young with Celergen

September 24, 2014


When first contacted about trialling a cell therapy supplement that promised to intensify cell regeneration, boost energy and stamina levels, improve memory and alertness, reduce wrinkles, enhance metabolism and alleviate pain, I was a little reluctant to be honest.

That ‘v’ word

October 14, 2013


Dear readers An integral part of my new plant-based journey, beyond the seemingly constant eating of amazingly delicious and highly nutritious foods has been the educational side.
