Orders are open, but we're pausing deliveries during the COVID-19 Lockdown in South Africa
26 March - 16 April 2020
In light of the President of South Africa's declaration of a 21-day National Lockdown due to the international COVID-19 pandemic's impact on our country, we will be closed from Thursday 26 March at 16h00, and reopen at 09h00 on Thursday 16 April 2020, providing there is no extension to this.
We believe this to be in the best interests of safeguarding our staff and contributing to the national effort of curbing the spread of the virus.
Our usual delivery services are unavailable, and we regret that we'll be unable to fulfil any online orders placed during this period. We will despatch orders and respond to any emails or forum queries when we return to the office after the lockdown.
We hope that you'll be able to access our products at one of our stockists such as pharmacies or health shops who manage to remain open during this time.
Thank you for your support, understanding and patience in this regard.
Be safe - we wish you and your loved ones the best of health over the lockdown.
'In the context of junk diets, embedded scientists, corrupt – or simply ignorant – doctors and dietitians, human health and omertàs, what you believe about your personal nutrition will determine not just how you live, but also how you die.’ – Tim Noakes
What would you do if you discovered that the food you have been told is good for you is actually the cause of your ill health …?
In December 2010, Professor Tim Noakes was introduced to a way of eating that was contrary to everything he had been taught and was accepted as conventional nutrition ‘wisdom’. Having observed the benefits of the low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) lifestyle first-hand, and after thorough and intensive research, Noakes enthusiastically revealed his findings to the South African public in 2012. The backlash from his colleagues in the medical establishment was as swift as it was brutal, and culminated in a misconduct inquiry launched by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). The subsequent hearing lasted well over a year, but Noakes ultimately triumphed, being found not guilty of unprofessional conduct in April 2017.
In Lore of Nutrition, he explains the science behind the LCHF/Banting diet, and why he champions this lifestyle despite the constant persecution and efforts to silence him. He also discusses at length what he has come to see as a medical and scientific code of silence that discourages anyone in the profession from speaking out against the current dietary guidelines. Experienced journalist Marika Sboros provides the full backstory to the HPCSA hearing, which reads like something out of a spy novel. Written in an accessible style, Lore of Nutrition is informative, highly controversial and an eyeopener for anyone who cares about their health.
