The human body has to be considered like a soil.
When we are young our body is rich in nutrients: minerals, vitamins, and hormones combined with a healthy and balanced diet to help keep this perfect "world" in balance. Life, however, hardly offers to us optimal epigenetic conditions that permit to maintain these conditions over time: frenetic rhythms, stress, little exercise, bad diet, medicines in addition to natural ageing lead us from the age of 35 years on wards to impoverish this soil.
Through the years, the blood tests clearly show that mineralogical and vitamin deficiencies are more and more frequent with the consequent increased possibility to favor the onset of different pathologies. To maintain these values optimally, unfortunately, the diet even if healthy, is not enough, because it also depends on a number of factors related to the environment in which we live, the work we do and, in women, pregnancies, menopause and other factors mean we need help.
Nutriceutical science based on natural organic phytotherapy products helps to restore and maintain optimal levels of nutrients, helping also to modulate the hormone levels related to the proper functioning of organs essential to optimal metabolism.
Why organic? Our body is not a sponge that absorbs any substance.
Supplements of chemical and synthetic origin are marginally absorbed by our organs in the indicative measure of 10% while products of organic origin are absorbed around at 90%.
And this must be a clear evaluation parameter for those who need supplements.
However it should be underlined that dietary supplementation should be made exclusively under medical supervision and not following self-proclaimed advertisements that promise miraculous results by taking supplements or multivitamins often of chemical origin or under the advice of people who do not have a specific medical preparation; even worst when we rely on word-of-mouth.
What was good, assuming that what really brought positive results and always carefully considering the placebo effect triggered by expectations rather than real effects, to our best friend does not mean that it will be good for us too.
Taking supplements without knowing what our corresponding physiological levels are, related to elements we are taking, at best it wastes money because with already optimal levels we will dispose through urine and feces the "miraculous" effect, and then how useless a supplement will be.
Often, however, an uncontrolled and probably useless intake involves fatigue for kidneys and liver, intestinal inflammation risking to cause disorders or trigger latent pathologies such as allergies, intestinal intoxication and dysbiosis as well as being able to present possible allergic interactions with any current drug treatments.
It is therefore necessary to pay attention to what we take in the form of a supplement because there is no seasonality, age or climatic conditions that require universal intake of food supplements, but an individual physiological need that must be previously verified and evaluated by a medical professional in the sector.
Through specific blood tests we can establish what your body really needs for your wellness in a dedicated program that will take care of your diet, fitness and any need of your body to achieve the best well being.

The fact that the intestine is our second brain is no longer a new concept.
The enteric nervous system of the digestive system contains 500 million neurons and represents a real autonomous system that affects the central nervous system (brain and marrow).
Many people suffer from depression, hypersensitivity, intestinal dysbiosis, intestinal irregularities, being overweight, which are all factors that affect our well-being.
Although several of the listed disorders are sometimes associated with neurological processes, the central nervous system is not always the only one responsible as it interacts with the whole physiological system of the person.
- Difficulty in sleeping
- Difficulties in concentration
- Increase, loss (rarely) or difficulty in weight control
- Hyperactivity or motor retardation
- Moody or depressed
These are the typical symptoms of an intestine that does not work optimally.
These alterations are often associated with deficiencies in the gut microbiota (the set of micro-organisms found in our intestines), which carries out and contributes to numerous physiological activities; from synthesising nutrients and vitamins, to helping the digestion of the food we ingest, to modulating the levels of hormones, cortisol, and adrenaline, which when high contribute to stress.
The Immune system, which is of the greatest importance through the Covid-19 epidemic especially, is found in the intestine. A nonperforming intestine is a facilitator of diseases!
Various diagnostic solutions have been developed on these scientific considerations and patient needs: microbiota and intestinal permeability tests carried out on patients suffering of depression, stress and overweight revealed serious deficiencies and alterations affecting mood, basal metabolism, immune system, neuroendocrine and the neural system.
Intestinal tests are not invasive, just a self blood sample with a finger prick and a urine sample to be able to have a complete overview of health conditions of our intestines and are therefore suitable for every type of patient of any age.
The rehabilitative treatment is often "simply" based on the assumption of prebiotics and probiotics, not medicines, that combined with a food rehabilitation program and moderate exercise allow you to regain intestinal well-being, the physical form but also the serenity of the gut.
We offer several personalised tests on the microbiota and intolerance's that have already solved dozens of cases of patients "apparently" suffering of "pathologies" that instead were attributable to a low-performing intestine and an altered microbiota.
Once the intestine has been fixed, the other disorders have disappeared or fallen to manageable levels with proper nutrition and simple natural remedies, regulating and optimising the metabolism of the person allowing him\her to control their weight more easily.
This topic would certainly deserve more space and insight that our consultants will be happy to provide you during an informative interview without commitment focused on your needs.
