You have mastered your traditional olive oils and dabbled in the kitchen with coconut oil but now it's time for a new oil rotation. Known for it's creamy deliciousness in salads, dips and smoothies . Avocado oil is packed with skin-loving nutrients such as carotenoids , lutein, vitamin E that leaves the skin glowing. The wonder oil also boasts high levels of monounsaturated fatty acids , which reduces damaging levels of inflammation in the body and helps to protect against heart disease , dementia and stroke(CVA).Similar in texture to olive oil , the added bonus of avocado oil is that it can be used for cooking due to it's high smoke point, plus it can be applied topically as a daily moisturiser for soft supple  skin.

Inulin Prebiotic

Inulin probiotics are live micro organisms that when taken can help improve gut health. Which is essential for overall health and vitality. But did you know that for probiotics to actually have an effect we need to create the right environment for the good bacteria to thrive. This is where inulin prebiotics come in. Inulin is a fructan which is indigestible by our body, but the good bacteria in our gut flora flourishes in its presence and makes it stick to the bowl wall. Not only does it support probiotics , but inulin also helps to improve absorption of minerals, and can also help satiate the appetite to aid weight loss .You can buy it in its powder form or find it  in foods like chicory and Jerusalem artichokes.

Activated Charcoal

Dating back to ancient times activated charcoal has been used for thousands of years to remove parasites and bacteria from the body , and 2017 will see it become the new super food to add to juices and even skincare. Acting like a trap - activated charcoal helps to rid toxins and chemicals from within the body. By catching and eliminating them out of the system. But beware this substance is so good at trapping chemicals that consuming too much of it can also remove the nutrients in food as well. An activated charcoal tip is that it is best taken 30 minutes before consuming any food so it only targets those unwanted toxins.

Sacha Inchi Inca Nut

Say goodbye to soaking your almonds overnight , because the sacha inchi inca nut is an easily-digestible nut that is rich in essential fatty acids , sure to push the humble almond of its super food perch.
