We offer a new solution to address the predicament of pain sufferers who do not respond to commercially available preparations – gels, creams and rubs suitable for topical application, avoiding the oral route, thus minimizing potential side effects such as stomach irritation and liver damage.

DID YOU KNOW- Insufficient workout causes 10% of global deaths as physical activity boosts brainpower, academic prowess, stops non-communicable diseases. The United Nations apex health body said regular physical activity of moderate intensity - such as walking, cycling, or doing sports - has significant benefits for health. "At all ages, the benefits of being physically active outweigh potential harm, for example through accidents. Some physical activity is better than doing none. By becoming more active throughout the day in relatively simple ways, people can quite easily achieve the recommended activity levels." According to the WHO, regular and adequate levels of physical activity: improve muscular and cardiorespiratory fitness; improve bone and functional health; reduce the risk of hypertension, coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes, breast and colon cancer and depression; reduce the risk of falls as well as hip or vertebral fractures; and are fundamental to energy balance and weight control. Let’s start working out today!
DID YOU KNOW -- Many people hesitate to eat nuts because they are thought to be relatively high in fat and calories, but well-established research shows that nuts are an excellent source of protein. The protein in nuts gives you long-term energy and can help you feel full longer, making a great addition to your breakfast and a healthy snack choice! Nuts also contain an amino acid called arginine, a nutrient that may increase the flexibility of your arteries and help to prevent blood clots. Arginine is also thought to boost immunity and improve sexual health in men and women. Additional heart-enhancing and weight-busting nutrients in nuts include: •Fiber: Among its many benefits, fiber has been shown to reduce cholesterol and lower your risk of diabetes. Fiber also helps fill you up, so that you can eat less and feel satisfied. •Vitamin E: This is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect your body against disease-causing free radicals and may reduce the build-up of arterial plaque. •Plant sterols: These are naturally-occurring substances in nuts (especially peanuts) that help lower cholesterol. •Calcium, selenium (another antioxidant) and folate: These are other important nutrients present in nuts. Folate, which is found in walnuts in particular, is crucial for healthy neural tube development in babies.

DID YOU KNOW- Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) includes classic autism, Asperger syndrome, and pervasive developmental disorder. ASD is a group of heterogeneous conditions characterized by impaired social interaction, difficulties with language and communication, repetitive stereotypical behaviors, and/or a very limited range of interests. More than 70% of people with ASD have comorbid conditions such as seizure disorders, attention-deficit disorder, anxiety, and sleep disorders. Children affected by autism often have unique physical or psychological challenges that can be aggravated by ingredients in food and medicine. Commercially available medications may not be suitable for your child due to certain inactive additives such as dyes or preservatives. Every child has his/her unique needs and customized medications can help. Ask our compounding pharmacist about how we can make it easier to give your child needed medications.
DID YOU KNOW- Men with diabetes tend to develop erectile dysfunction 10 to 15 years earlier than men without diabetes. As men with diabetes age, erectile dysfunction becomes even more common. Above the age of 50, the likelihood of having difficulty with an erection occurs in approximately 50% to 60% of men with diabetes. Above age 70, there is about a 95% likelihood of having some difficulty with erectile dysfunction. The causes of erectile dysfunction in men with diabetes are complex and involve impairments in nerve, blood vessel, and muscle function. High blood sugar over time can damage the blood vessels and nerves including vessels leading to and within the penis, causing erectile dysfunction. Call our pharmacists to find out which compounded supplements can help. Besides, June is Men’s Health Month. Encourage the men and boys in your life to make their health a priority. Wear blue to show your support for male health and to encourage men to live longer and healthier lives!
DID YOU KNOW -- Spinach has an extremely high nutritional value and is rich in antioxidants. It is a good source of vitamins A, B2, C and K, and also contains magnesium, manganese, folate, iron, calcium and potassium. The flavonoids and antioxidants found in spinach, particularly the antioxidant beta-carotene, have been shown in multiple studies to help combat many cancers, including breast, prostate and ovarian cancer. Spinach also boosts eye health and has strong anti-ageing properties. A recent study found a bowl of spinach every day increases muscle efficiency. Researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden found participants who consumed 300 grams of spinach a day reduced the amount of oxygen required to power their muscles while exercising by 5%. The effect was noticeable after just 3 days of spinach consumption. Researchers from the Queensland Institute of Medical Research found leafy greens e.g. spinach and silverbeet to be linked with a reduction in the risk of skin cancer, particularly among those with a previous history of the disease. Consuming more spinach is an excellent, natural way to enhance any diet!
DID YOU KNOW - Patients with several stress-associated neuropsychiatric disorders, notably post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain and fatigue syndromes, have low plasma levels of the stress hormone cortisol. The effects appear greatest in those initially traumatized in early life. While cortisol levels are typically tested in fatigued or chronically stressed patients, it can also be useful to test cortisol in those suffering from chronic allergies. If saliva testing determines that cortisol levels are low, and a physician determines that supplementation is needed, we can compound cortisol in a titratable dosage form and also recommend supplements to help restore adrenal function.
