When nature gently rests and the animals hibernate, the need for reflection, peace, and contemplation awakens in us. All we want to do is hide away in our own “dens” and recharge – but there is usually no time for that, especially now in the weeks before Christmas. Selected micronutrients can be ideal during this time – they sooth the soul and simply do you good.

The USA is a “nation of prosperity and plenty”. Most Americans can count on an abundant food supply. However, studies regularly show that insufficient vitamin and mineral intake in the USA is more common than we thought. Despite the overabundance of food, poor food options negatively impact nutrition and can lead to insufficient consumption of certain micronutrients . The large-scale NHANES study highlights the discrepancy between deficiency and plenty.
100,000 heartbeats in a day, 3 billion heartbeats in a single lifetime. Without this pumping action of the heart, the cells in our bodies would not be supplied with vital nutrients and oxygen.

In the search for the “food of the future”, there has been an increasing focus on the benefits of algae. These survivors from a prehistoric age have been used as a food source by humans for a very long time. They are still popular food staples in present-day Japan, where their unique combination of nutrients plays an important role in people’s diets. An overview study published in May 2019 explores the topic of microalgae on the basis of the latest data and underscores their potential as high-quality sources of nutrients.
In the words of Scandinavian naturalist Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778), “Nature reveals its greatest miracles in the smallest of things”. These wise words are as relevant today as they were then. The immeasurable wealth of nature is revealed each and every day in an impressive display of abundance. All we have to do is open our eyes to the priceless gifts of nature, just as our ancestors have done for thousands of years. People around the world have always explored and studied their natural environments in order to be able to use selected wild plants, such as herbs, berries, and mushrooms, specifically for their own purposes. We too are fascinated by the repertoire offered by Mother Nature and would like to introduce you to our “11 natural born heroes”.
At Biogena, we are happy to assume holistic responsibility for our environment and endeavor to make an important ecological contribution to the future fitness of our planet. This is why we support the “Biogena Forest” project of the Plant-for-the-Planet children and youth initiative, which has already planted 15 billion trees in 193 countries. Trees perform various tasks for our climate: they clean the air, cool the earth, and are easily propagated CO2 reservoirs.

Sirtuins are what we like to call the “MacGyvers” of enzymes. They help organisms to streamline their metabolism so that they can withstand adverse conditions.
