Should you be eating 'free from'?

Inthe news today, sales of supermarket ‘free from’ foods are increasing, but the people buying them aren’t necessarily suffering with food allergies. 

This comes as no surprise, as we see the ‘free from’ section in the supermarket aisle getting more and more prominent.  I routinely come across people who think gluten free is just generally healthier, or will help them lose weight.

Nutritional Supplements: you get what you pay for

This is not a post about whether nutritional supplements are beneficial or worth taking (more on that another time...), but rather if you do take supplements, why it's worth buying the best quality you can afford.  

Nutritional supplements are big business at the moment.  Many people take health supplements regularly, often picking them up from a supermarket with weekly shopping.

The supplements you can buy on the high street are very different from the products that nutritional therapists recommend.  Most notably, they are much cheaper.
