Grass fed animals

I take issue with your assertion following a sentence in which you state “90% of NZ cattle are grass fed” that you won’t be getting grass fed meat from NZ animals. I can only assume you used the negative in error.

Grass fed

I misquoted your statement. 98% of animals are grass fed.

Bais

Consumer continues to demonize saturated fat despite mounting mainstream evidence to the contrary. Obsolete and misleading advice. Also takes issue with industry supported studies yet almost all pharmaceutical produce the same industry studies but are some how free from corruption and bias?

Collagen creamer

After numerous surgeries I suffer from joint pain, especially in the morning when I wake up . I have been using collagen creamer once a day for the past 6 months and find that it does help. I wake up with no pain and can move more freely. Maybe it’s all in my head, but as long as I feel ok I’ll keep using it.

Collagen capsules

I take marine collagen capsules daily, for joint health , on the advice of my osteopath. They have definitely helped my joint pain . I guess they are considerably stronger than a food additive.
