No. All of our products have been independently tested and are gluten free.

Pure wheat grass and barley grass (just the grass, with absolutely no seeds) do not contain gluten. The type of gluten that causes reactions in individuals with coeliac disease or gluten sensitivity occurs in the grains, i.e., the seeds produced by the wheat and barley grass plants. None of the ingredients used in any Bio Blends products contain gluten and all of our products have been independently tested to be gluten free.

Yes. All of our products are free from animal products of any kind. Organic Daily Greens & Radiant Reds is a powder. All other Bio Blends products are encapsulated in vegetable capsules, which do not contain gelatine and are certified by the vegetarian society.

All of our products have been crafted for optimal effectiveness and ingredient synergy, with specific outcomes for you in mind. Bio Blends is based on Dr Libby’s 14 years of study at university and 20 years of clinical experience. More ingredients do not necessarily mean that the product will be more effective. In fact, smaller amounts of a larger number of ingredients can actually compromise effectiveness because the body isn’t getting enough of what it actually needs from each ingredient. Our products are of a very high quality and have been designed with optimal effectiveness for you in mind.

We love taking ours in water. Be sure to add the water to the glass first, before mixing in a spoonful of the powder. You can also add it to your favourite smoothie, fresh vegie juice, bliss ball or raw baking recipe. The key is not to heat it, as some of the nutrients are destroyed by heat.

Calm Restore: for children between the ages of 8 and 15 years, Calm Restore can be taken at a dose of 1 capsule per day. Teenagers 15 years and over can have the adult dose of 2 capsules per day.

Cycle Essentials: is not suitable for children. It can be taken by teenage girls who are menstruating. The dose is best guided by an experienced health professional, based on her symptoms.

Liver Love: for children between the ages of 8 and 15 years, Liver Love can be taken at a dose of ½ -1 capsule per day. The lower the weight of the child, the smaller the dose needs to be. The capsules contain ground up foods and herbs (in a powder form) so to give half a capsule, it can be opened and the powder added to water, a fresh vegie juice or smoothie. Teenagers 15 years and over, can have the adult dose of Liver Love, provided they weigh 40kg or more. To start an older teenager on Liver Love at the adult dose, begin with 1 capsule per day, with breakfast. After 3-4 days on 1 capsule per day, give the second capsule at afternoon tea time (now at a dose of 2 capsules per day). After a week of this, add the third capsule. Ideally when they are at the dose of 1 capsule 3 times per day, they are given with each main meal.

Meno Magic: is (obviously) not suitable for children.

Organic Zinc Extract: Children aged 9 to 13 years can take 1 capsule per day. Teenage girls aged 14 years and over can have 1-2 capsules per day and teenage boys aged 14 years and over can have the adult dose.

Organic Daily Greens & Radiant Reds: a wonderful nutritional support for children from age 3 and over, as well as teenagers. Always start young children on ½ teaspoon for 3-4 days to ensure tolerance. Increase to 1 teaspoon per day if desired after this time, or keep young children on the smaller dose.

If you are taking any prescription medications or have any medical condition, please consult with your qualified healthcare professional before taking these products. They are safe to take in most conditions but it is essential that this is guided by an experienced health professional.

All other Bio Blends products are suitable while on the combined oral contraceptive pill.

Yes you can, please do not exceed directions for use.

This is highly individual and varies depending on how your health is as you begin your health journey.

Calm Restore: The herbs in Sleep Restore were carefully selected for their calming and restorative effects on the nervous system, which are often what people who have trouble relaxing and sleeping restoratively respond well to. The time it takes for you to notice improvements to your level of calm, sleep and general wellbeing will therefore depend on the state of your nervous system. Please note that this is not a sleeping pill and it won’t knock you out. Studies on some of the herbs in this product have shown that some people experience good results for improved sleep within two weeks of regular use, however they experienced even better results when the herbs were taken regularly for 4-6 months.

Cycle Essentials & Liver Love: We recommend taking these for at least 3-6 months initially, to allow your body time to respond. After this, be guided by how you feel or an experienced healthcare professional, as to whether you respond best when you take these continuously, at a reduced dose, or just during periods when you feel you need some additional support.

Meno Magic: We recommend taking Meno Magic for at least 3 months to allow your body time to respond, however often the benefits occur within weeks of regular use.

Organic Zinc Extract: To ensure your levels rebuild to sufficient levels, you might like to take this for at least 3 months. Or, if you find it difficult to consume adequate zinc through your food, you might like to supplement your dietary intake with a regular maintenance dose of 1-2 capsules per day.

Skin Nutrition: We recommend taking Skin Nutrition for at least 2-3 months, or as long as you are appreciating its benefits. Women who took this formulation for 8 weeks noticed an improvement in skin colour and texture, as well as a reduction in spots and dark circles.

Our passion at Bio Blends is based on the power of plants and organic real food. Add to that our commitment to providing you with the highest quality ingredients that deliver enhanced health outcomes. Effectiveness matters to us. Therefore, we’ve sourced the highest quality and organic ingredients wherever this was possible. Unfortunately, and even surprisingly to us, not all of the ingredients that were needed to create these highly effective products were available organically (globally). We are continuing to work with farmers to inspire and assist them to grow foods and herbs organically. We do not use the term “organic where possible” to bypass our commitment to organics. In other words, if the food or herb in a product is not organic it is because it doesn’t exist yet in the form we need it to deliver you highly effective products.

Our products are optimised when consumed daily.

Absolutely – nothing can replace the power and importance of a real food way of eating. Our products are designed to support how you eat, not act as a dietary replacement.

Calm Restore: for calming effects, we suggest taking one capsule twice daily. Or, if you are taking this product predominantly to support your sleep, we suggest taking the full daily dose about 30 minutes before bed. 

Cycle Essentials & Liver Love: best taken with food, with the daily dose split into two or three (for example, one capsule with three meals, or one capsule with one meal and two capsules with another meal).

Meno Magic: best taken with food, twice daily (one capsule with two meals).

Organic Daily Greens & Radiant Reds: any time of day is fine.

Organic Zinc Extract: best taken before bed, away from food.

Skin Nutrition: best taken with food, twice daily (one capsule with two meals).

No, we don’t recommend taking Meno Magic while taking tamoxifen.

If you have had an estrogen positive cancer, we do not recommend you take Meno Magic. Meno Magic contains black cohosh, a herb that is thought to have selective estrogen receptor modulation activity, with studies suggesting an estrogenic effect on bone but not on breast or endometrial tissues. It also contains shatavari, a herb that has shown some oestrogenic effects in animal studies. Research has demonstrated that black cohosh does not increase risk of breast cancer in women with or without a history of this. However, many practitioners choose not to use herbs that may have some estrogenic effects for patients who have had hormone-sensitive breast cancer, in case of altered risk and safety.

Black cohosh is a medicinal herb that has long history of use, both traditionally and quite widely in Western cultures since the early 1800s. In a few, very rare cases, it has been associated with liver problems. Globally, there have been at least 42 reported cases of liver damage in people who were taking or had taken this, however an assessment by the European Medicines Agency showed a possible or probable causality in only 4 out of these 42 cases and another review did not support causality. Other published studies have shown no clear causal relationship between the use of black cohosh and liver damage. With that said, until this potential link is either confirmed or refuted, we don’t recommend products containing black cohosh, including Meno Magic, for people with pre-existing liver disease or in combination with prescribed medications that could potentially harm the liver.

Symptoms of liver disease include yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes (jaundice), dark urine, nausea, vomiting, weakness, unusual tiredness, loss of appetite and abdominal pain. If you experience this, we advise to cease taking any products containing black cohosh and to consult with your doctor. If you experience this after or while taking Meno Magic, please also notify us immediately.
