Click through to the links below for what we covered this month.

During the depths of winter, a lot of our content from July focussed on why we need more nutrients in times of sickness and stress. We also looked at how our lifestyles, food and agricultural habits have changed and what this means for our health status overall.

What nutrients are we missing

This article looks at common nutrient deficiencies we see in the clinic and in people we meet at our seminars. It explores what having these nutrient deficiencies will do to our individual health and why we recommend supporting your health with these essential nutrients.

Why are modern diets lacking in nutrients

There are many reasons why we are getting and absorbing less nutrients than our ancestors. This blog looks at how our diets have changed. Things like convenience foods, processing methods and farming practices all combine to affect the quality of our modern diets.

How sleep and stress affect our wellbeing

This article from Ben talked about the reasons why we need greater levels of nutrients when we are stressed or underslept. Both are key issues facing us in the modern world. Like most things, it’s not just about what we eat. Many factors are at play.

Eating with the seasons

This blog contains a handy list of vegetables that are in season for winter. We know that eating foods out of season greatly affects the amount of nutrients those foods give us. For instance, studies conducted on supermarket produce show that four days after harvest, many fruits and vegetables have lost up to 80% of their nutrient levels.

8 signs of an unhealthy gut

This month Ben has hosted a number of events on the topic of gut health. More and more we are seeing the health of our gut is crucial to our overall feelings of wellness. This blog looks at 8 common signs of an unhealthy gut. Some of them aren’t what you might expect.

Over the course of July, we posted recipes using seasonal veggies as well as recipes to boost your gut health. Here’s all the deliciousness in one place!


Go into any health food store or cafe and you will find a selection of Kombucha. Kombucha is a probiotic soda where a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria or yeast) feeds of sugar and caffeine in tea to make a fizzy soda.

The sugar is almost all consumed by the SCOBY and you are left with a delicious gut healing drink. Here’s how you make your own at home.

Homemade Kimchi

Kimchi is a delicious condiment with great gut healing properties. Similar to sauerkraut it is slightly spicy and has been used Asian cuisine for many years. It’s also quick and easy to make.

5 flavoursome ways to enhance your meals

When eating a nutrient-dense diet, it can sometimes feel like healthy food can be a little bland or unoriginal. It doesn’t have to be. Here at BePure, we love to use different sauces, spices and broth to turn any meal into something truly delicious.
To help with culinary boredom, we have compiled a list of basic recipes you can make ahead of time. These recipes can be incredibly costly when bought from the shops and also contain additives we don’t need. Making them yourself costs a fraction of what you could buy them for.

Adrenal fatigue

One of our focusses lately has been Adrenal fatigue. Due to the increased stress of modern living, Adrenal Fatigue is a condition affecting more and more people. Here at the clinic we are seeing a marked increase in the number of adrenal fatigue cases.

When people suffer from Adrenal Fatigue, you can do everything “right” but still not have the energy to enjoy optimal health. We’re running a FREE email series about adrenal fatigue. We cover why it happens, the link to stress as well as diet and lifestyle suggestions for those suffering from adrenal fatigue and a free ebook full of nutritious and healing recipes. 

Ben will also be hosting a day long event talking specifically about treating adrenal fatigue. Keep an eye out for more information.


FREE bottle of probiotics with every new purchase of the Everyday Health Pack 

At his recent Gut Health seminars, one of the key strategies Ben suggests for restoring gut health is to take a quality probiotic. We recommend taking Biokult as it is an effective multi strain probiotic which will help to restore the number and diversity of good bacteria in your gut.

To help you experience the benefits of taking a probiotic alongside the key nutrients you need to support gut and general health every day, we are offering a free bottle of Biokult probiotics with every purchase of the Everyday haelth Pack.

Please note, this product offer is only available to those who have not received a free product in conjunction with the Everyday Health Pack previously.
