The surprising benefits of omega oils

Today’s eating habits are more and more calorific. Biscuits, chips, carbohydrates, starchy and highly processed food has overwhelmed our diet. This food intake often lacks omega oil, a fatty acid which has a predominant place in a healthy body. Omega oils help everything from the skin to the brain and even the respiratory system.

vita balance is proto-col’s bestselling full spectrum multi-vitamin and multi-mineral nutritional support product.  As we discussed in our last blog, vitamins are vital to the daily function of our bodies.

At proto-col we promote healthy balanced diets and have a regular YouTube feature called #MagicMonday, which show you how to make delicious and nutritional smoothies.

However we also understand that due to hectic lifestyles, over farming of fields and the use of pesticides, it can often be very difficult to eat enough quality nutritionally dense foods to meet your recommended daily amounts.

Love your lips


They say eyes are the key to your heart but healthy, plump lips can take years off your appearance.

However, unfortunately lips are neglected rarely getting the attention they require but it’s important to remember lips need as much care as our skin. And whilst everyone worries that their skin will show signs of ageing lips can often be the biggest give away – the ageing process can take its toll and fine lines and wrinkles will appear if you don’t give your lips a little extra care during your skincare routine.

Diet myth – ‘You are what you eat’

In previous blogs we have looked at healthy dieting tips and how to create a healthy eating environment to promote fat loss.  In this article we will discuss one of the biggest diet myths – ‘You are what you eat’.

This general rule has prompted people to give up certain food groups in the belief that they are the cause of their weight gaining.  This is a dieting myth!  Your body needs a complete and balanced diet, with all the food groups present.

What is actually important is the timing of when we eat certain foods.  There is no requirement to eat lots of simple carbohydrate / energy foods just before we go to bed, as the body is preparing to go to sleep and those foods will simply be turned in to fat and stored.
