The 5 everyday things that destroy your gut!

  There are 10 times as many bacterial cells than human cells in our bodies and a large percentage of those live in our gut. Over the last few years we have come to realise that everything to do with our health from diabetes to depression is as much about our microbes as it is about us, yet there are things that we expose ourselves to that destroy our gut health every day. A gut with a greater variety of bacteria is a healthy one, but the following five points are things that we do every day that lowers the...

MediKane and the environment

Recently, we have been getting more and more questions about what we are doing to help preserve the environment, particularly to do with the packaging of our product NutriKane D. Although we hope to revolutionise the healthcare system of Australia, it is very important we also do our part in helping the environment. Initially, NutriKane D was produced and packed in bags. Being light and low density, we ran into problems with consumers; people weren’t getting the right dose amount with every scoop. This became a problem as people were either having too much or little of the product. This...

What is directed nutrition and how does NutriKane work?

The concepts of “food as medicine” and “lifestyle medicine” are once again starting to achieve the recognition they deserve, not just with the public, but in the medical community as well.

Fibre Supplements vs. NutriKane D

Blog: Fibre Supplements vs. NutriKane D Some of the most recurring questions we get here at MediKane are “Aren’t fibre supplements bad for you?” and “How is NutriKane D different to a fibre supplement?” That is why we sat down with Dr Malcom Ball, chief technical officer at MediKane to discuss this issue, and present some closure to this topic. In order to understand this debate, we must start with the microbiome. The gut microbiome (or more accurately microbiota) contains trillions of different microbes and includes thousands of species, which interact directly with our gut and can affect different processes...

So is sugar bad for you or not?

The short answer is not if you are sensible, and you are probably better off worrying about what else is in your food. Depending on who you talk to, sugar is either completely safe or the devil, or fine so long as you aren’t diabetic, or suffer gut problems, or any of a myriad of things terrifying or benign. So what’s the real story? Like everything to do with biology, it is a little more complicated than any one-line throwaway can explain. Sugar is essential to almost all life on earth. With very few exceptions glucose is the source of...
