Well, not really of course but Masquelier have produced a supplement that contains the key ingredients to help you and your heart stay healthy. My regular readers will know my feelings about statins by now, and a healthy alternative is always preferable in my book, so if you can’t bask in sunshine with a large home grown salad tossed in organic olive oil and containing chunks of a tasty omega 3 rich fish, and washed down with a glass of red wine, then this is – almost – the next best thing.

The health benefits of a traditional Mediterranean diet are now well known and are one of the elements that can promote a healthier and longer life. The key ingredients of this are a diet high in ‘Omega’ unsaturated fatty acids from oily fish, antioxidants from virgin olive oil and specific flavanols found in red wine together with an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables.

MASQUELIER’s® Mediterranean Essentials contains the first 3 ingredients but the sunshine and your daily 5+ of fruit and vegetables is down to you. You would not think the French would need to produce a capsule when they have all the necessary ingredients to hand but you can’t stop scientists from experimenting. In this case it is Professor Dr. Masquelier, an expert in the field of nutrition and health, whose previous claim to fame was in discovering how to produce an extract from the bark tree and maximise its health benefits.

If you can’t get to the Mediterranean this year then take heart from the fact you are by proxy visiting the Dordogne, not far from Bergerac in the south west of France, which is where the grapes used in the supplement come from. You can congratulate yourself on being even more virtually widely travelled as the fish oil it contains comes from South America and is extracted from anchovies from the Pacific Ocean and your international health trip even calls in at California where the olive extract is produced.

No passport, no problem – you can visit the Mediterranean and give your heart a healthy boost and you don’t even need to pack!
