L  Coronavirus (COVID-19) Nightmare
>  Keeping immune systems supported, strong & 'firing on all cylinders' is critical especially after this utterly miserable 2019/20 winter weather.
>  COVID-19 - strong immunes help our bodies to quickly  identify a risk, repel &/or side-step &/or recover better if we or one of our  'at risk' family/friends are under attack.  Ditto for common colds, flu...preventing is so much easier & cheaper than the often life-disrupting recovering...
<|>   R&SLtd strongly encourage #1 + #2 with an option on #3:
    #1.  considerin actively supplementing with the Bio-Kult 14/multi-strain live bacteria at a minimum of 4 x caps daily  [order Here [the 2nd item]

Information correct
at today's date from
data provided to us
by Nestle as at today's date



Thank You if you

spread the word on this Orangutan injustice

L Like Chocolates, Quality Street, Roses...?
Why you might wish to AVOID Nestle, Quality Street (and Cadbury) chocolates IF you value Orangutans.
Nestle - currently 40% of all their Palm Oil (in their chocolates, other products) comes from 'unknown' sources with just 8% traceable. L  Correct at today's date from information provided by Nestle.
-  So 40% of every Quality Street (PLUS all their other chocolates & other products) is likely to have killed, starved, or caused harm to Orangutans (let alone forest damage)
The Cadbury chocolate manufacturing division uses NON-ethical Palm Oil.L   But Cadbury's Cake division uses responsibly sourced P.O.J.   Correct at today's date.
-  So we can enjoy Cadbury's cakes with a clear conscience but AVOID all their chocolates...?

-  Click HERE for the official stats info'  + alternative chocolate & product manufacturers to buy instead (or ask us)


Overnight forage gone = forced Fasting
-  Edinburgh's Royal 'Dick' Veterinary research - NEW findings are pretty shocking but brilliantly we can all action this! 
-  More than 4 hours having run out of food = fasting from a horse/donkey's perspective.  That's destructive to the gut...which pretty much runs the whole body.
But it's easily rectifiable!  The Pacefeeder slow-feeder (in stable or field) increased forage time by up to 120%, stopped c72% of bed eating or 'food searching', can aid Laminitic-prone or those on restricted fodder, saved hay.
-  No fasting = happier animal in the morning or whenever you top up the fodder, likelihood of being less demented to get food, happier tacking up (girthing), less likely you've inadvertently increased the risk of ulcers due to lack of saliva

Westie puppy in trouble...
-  Monty's constant scratching, eating cat poo, very upset tummy, problems after spot-on application, pain management ++ hit him at a very fragile age. 
"You were on the phone for ages, nothing was too much trouble back in 2017...& today in 2019 he's fantastic with Ruggle-it, Bio-Kult & your diet help" .

Caution still water - Toxic Algae
-  Caution dogs & horses & inactive water, puddles - toxic algal blooms. Some useful tips & links (see below) whether 2019 Autumn or Spring 2020. 
-  If in doubt, we suggest bump up the 'pure probiotics' until the sun's heat wanes & algal bloom risks abate.
-   Why?  As a stronger gut/immune is more likely to 'side-step' this
potentially life-threatening issue than a less-supported gut/immune.  Click Here

#1 - Protexin Equine - The annual Manufacture's price rise (not of our doing!) is effective 1/9/19. Grab bargains B4 then.

  Free-Load Vit' D - April to September
Maximise mood, body, energy, joints, immunity, every bodily function.
The Key.  Must expose your back, belly and/or thighs. for just 15 mins a week

Why?  Exposing the arms and/or head only is not enough surface exposure for the sun's UV to convert into enough Vitamin D3.  Unconvinced?  See testimonial below (31/10/18)

Clever bit.  Expose back, belly and/or thighs for just 15 minutes, ideally twice a week during April-Sept'.  This loads large amounts, quickly, safely & with no risk of sunburn.  And it's FREE!  Thereafter apply sunscreen as normal.  Read specific details HERE (or ask us for printout)

  >  If not, deficiency can be a risk (exposing arms is rarely enough).
[ii.]  Shock Vitamin D3 Test Results

"Out with horses 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year - surely I would not be Vit D3 deficient!  But, the pain in my knees then forced me to give up the horses & keeps me awake at night. 

Finally I did your Vit D Test Kit  - I was so shocked when

the result confirmed I was all but "severely deficient" at 18.1 nmol/L. 

So I now take your Vit D3 capsules & so wish I'd done your test way back!"

Mrs GH, Somerset  01.16

NOTE:  The NHS classify 50 nmol/L as "adequate"...all results under that are varying degrees of deficiency...

Joints, Skin, Itching, Well-being - we all need MORE OM3 (not OM6)
It's a fact that virtually ALL bodies (human or animal) need MUCH more Omega 3 to counteract modern diets packed with far too much Omega 6.
-  Omega 3 aids calmer skin, joints, guts & happier bodies at every level.  But don't be fooled by many 'so-called' OM3 products which actually have higher OM6 compared to OM3 (which defeats the point & wastes your money).
MEGA Specials - Equine + Canine (human) intensive Omega 3 Maxavita Pernamax Tablets.  -  Order Here  [*whilst stocks last]
-  Human &/or animal joint testimonials - see Here



It is the Ratio that is critical.  Do you know yours (or your animal's)?
-  Omega 3 products are mostly with the wrong ratios 
Wrong ratios drive MORE irritation/pain rather than calming it
-  Most contain higher Omega 6 than Omega 3 (check your product's ingredients label...).  Whilst that's clever marketing it defeats the whole point of taking OM3. L

Brexit Foreign Exchange - price impacts

-  Currencies that will affect R&S Ltd are $US Dollar, Euro, Australian AUD, New Zealand NZD.
Good News.   Stock up at the current pre-Brexit prices!
