We love taking ours in water. Be sure to add the water to the glass first, before mixing in a spoonful of the powder. You can also add it to your favourite smoothie, fresh vegie juice, bliss ball or raw baking recipe. The key is not to heat it, as some of the nutrients are destroyed by heat.

All of our products have been crafted for optimal effectiveness and ingredient synergy, with specific outcomes for you in mind. Bio Blends is based on Dr Libby's 14 years of study at university and almost 20 years of clinical experience. More ingredients do not necessarily mean that the product will be more effective. In fact, smaller amounts of a larger number of ingredients can actually compromise effectiveness because the body isn't getting enough of what it actually needs from each ingredient. Our products are of a very high quality and have been designed with optimal effectiveness for you in mind.

Organic Daily Greens & Radiant Reds: a wonderful nutritional support for children from age 3 and over, as well as teenagers.

Teenagers 15 years and over, can have the adult dose of Liver Love, provided they weigh 40kg or more. To start an older teenager on Liver Love at the adult dose, begin with 1 capsule per day, with breakfast.

Organic Zinc Extract: to ensure your levels rebuild to sufficient levels, you might like to take this for at least three months. Or, if you find it difficult to consume adequate zinc through your food, you might like to supplement your dietary intake with a regular maintenance dose of 1-2 capsules per day.
Liver Love & Cycle Essentials: We recommend taking Liver Love and Cycle Essentials for at least 3-6 months initially, to allow your body time to respond. After this, be guided by the messages your body is sending you (or an experienced healthcare professional) as to whether you respond best when you take these continuously, at a reduced dose, or just during periods when you feel you need some additional support.
Sleep Restore: Please note Sleep Restore is not a sleeping pill. The herbs in the product are not drugs. They do not knock you out. The plants in Sleep Restore were carefully selected for their restorative effect on the nervous system, which is what all people who have trouble sleeping need. The time it takes for you to notice improvements to your sleep will therefore depend on the health and function of your nervous system. Studies have shown that some people experience good results within two weeks of regular use, however they experienced even better results when the herbs were taken regularly for 4-6 months. You can read more about this on the Sleep Restore page.
Our passion at Bio Blends is based on the power of plants and organic real food. Add to that our commitment to providing you with the highest quality ingredients that deliver enhanced health outcomes. Effectiveness matters to us. Therefore, we've sourced the highest quality and organic ingredients wherever this was possible. Unfortunately, and even surprisingly to us, not all of the ingredients that were needed to create these highly effective products were available organically (globally). We are continuing to work with farmers to inspire and assist them to grow foods and herbs organically. We do not use the term "organic where possible" to bypass our commitment to organics. In other words, if the food or herb in a product is not organic it is because it doesn't exist yet in the form we need it to deliver you highly effective products.
Our products are optimised when consumed daily.
Absolutely - nothing can replace the power and importance of a real food way of eating. Our products are designed to support how you eat, not act as a dietary replacement.
