Celtic Nutrition, a Waterford-based company producing health supplements, has launched its first supplement onto Irish and global markets. Called ‘Body Balance for a Healthy Heart’, it supplies the body with essential daily nutrients.
Founded by nutritional therapist and athlete David Burke, geopathic stress consultant Brendan Murphy, and the architect who designed the five-star Monart Destination Spa in Wexford, Stephen Carr, Celtic Nutrition is an Enterprise Ireland darling, having accepted one of the trio onto its New Frontiers enterprise programme.
The trio have all worked together at various stages of their careers and say the new healthy heart supplements have been fine-tuned over several years to produce a quality product that, unlike most in the market, is completely devoid of fillers or bulking agents.
David Burke explaned: “Body Balance has taken about three years to fine tune and it features the perfect balance of vitamins, minerals and oils. The testimonials we’ve received from people who have used it are glowing. They’re experiencing everything from the expected clinical improvements in heart function, but also greater energy levels and increased brain function.”
He added that the product, first of a range of supplements the company has planned, contains natural components essential for many important physiological processes. They include energy production, muscle contraction, muscle relaxation and keeping cells healthy. Magnesium is also included in the product, as depletion may also be associated with structural damage to muscle cells, impairing post-exercise muscle recovery.
Burke continued: “We want to help as many people as we can with Body Balance. We picked it for market first as heart disease is the number one killer in Ireland.
“My own sister developed heart disease, even though she didn’t smoke, wasn’t overweight and there’s no history of heart disease or diabetes, high cholesterol or blood pressure issues in our family. She’d felt unwell, went to her GP, got the all clear and next thing, she had a heart attack. She was on 28 tablets before she started taking Body Balance. She’s taking it daily and within three months she was off 22 of her medications.”
Burke and his partners believe that many people are not getting sufficient essential minerals in their diet (especially zinc), which are needed for the proper formation of blood and bone, the maintenance of healthy nerve function, heartbeat regulation, reproduction and foetal development. They are essential to the process of growth, healing and energy release.
Body Balance for a Healthy Heart was designed and formulated to ensure an adequate daily supply of what we need, but without fillers or bulking agents. All of its ingredients are natural and do not impact on prescription medication being taken for any underlying ailments, the company explains.
A 30-day supply (90 capsules and tablets) retails in selected pharmacies and health food stores at just under €60 a month and is also available directly from the company’s website.
