Recently at Indigo Herbs, we have been working with Nutritionist and Author David Ash to produce 2 groundbreaking new products, the Love Your Liver superfood mixes.
Well in order to help spread the word about liver health in general and find out more about these products we recently conducted an interview with David at his family home in the South West of England. The interview has been made into 5 short videos, and here they are …
In this episode, David talks about the effects of processed food on our health, what glucose really is and how it acts on blood sugar levels. He also explains how and why processed foods can lead to an addictive cycle, peaking and crashing the glycemic index. He also explains why eating wholefoods is far better for us. (12mins)
In this episode, David talks about the effects of processed food and the glucose addiction cycle and why processed carbohydrates and sugar are the real causes of heart disease and stroke. Finally, he talks about the problem with bread. (10mins)
In this episode, David talks about the herbs and nutrition that will support optimum liver health. He explains the latest thinking on Vitamin C and it’s synergy with proanthocyanidins. He also discusses the amino acids needed for glutathione and it’s importance in keeping the liver healthy along with the huge role played by the B vitamins. (13mins)
In this final episode, David talks about the two ‘Love Your Liver’ superfood mixes he has helped us develop. He explains how to use the product and how much to take. He explains why we should avoid too many vitamins, why there is a basic and a fortified mix and how it has been possible to produce such a cutting edge nutritional product for such excellent value for money.

Just this week, in various newspapers around the world, is the story of a breast cancer sufferer who turned down conventional drugs in favor of a lifestyle approach to her wellbeing that included Herbs & Superfoods.
Vicky Sewart is from Devon and was diagnosed with a fast growing tumor which was treated with radiation therapy, chemotherapy and surgery. However following the tumor’s removal she surprised everyone by rejecting conventional drugs (Tamoxifen) and instead used her diet as her anti-cancer drug. Her motivation for doing so? Unwanted side-effects that you do not get from superfoods.
Four years on and she is in full health. Her story is probably not too much of a surprise to those of us who understand the link between health and lifestyle. There are many scenarios where a lifestyle approach to health, including herbs & superfoods as well as exercise and a positive mental outlook, may be better than a more conventional one-pill-cures-all approach. In fact here at Indigo Herbs we regularly hear stories from our customers along these sorts of lines.
There are two things that are different about this case which are really positive and made me want to tell you about it.

What’s the point of a blog when the mad woman doesn’t update it?
Well if I explained about the 35 litres of paint being put on walls, full house move, school holidays, dad access visits … and please don’t ask about the fun and games with my old laptop and of course my Internet connection.
Talk about stress, phew!
That’s the excuses made, Now I’m back! Welcome to the Indigo Blog, ad hoc blogging about Superfoods in the daily diet of a very ordinary madwoman. read this entry »
… Well, it certainly looks that way this week! Welcome back to my ordinary blog in an ordinary life.
As ordinary as it gets with a 21 day menstrual cycle, that is. With 7 days of that spent menstruating, 7 days spent growling, snarling or crying and not being quite “with it” , that leaves a 7 day window of opportunity to approach me if you’d like to get something done. read this entry »
Hello and welcome to the new Indigo Herbs blog about my superfood diet trial!
I’d like to introduce myself. My name’s Krissy, 41 year old mum of 3. Although I’m pretty good friends with all at Indigo Herbs, I’ve always been very sceptical about all these groovy superfood supplements, and whether the cost reflects the health benefits they claim to offer. So when I was invited to try a superfood diet for myself, and write a down-to-earth, honest, unbiased blog, I was up for it. read this entry »
