Dietary Supplements Bundle

Power your knowledge with continuing education. Taught by scientists and PhDs.

Ready To Power Your Continuing Education?

Learn about whether our level of exercise can be blamed on our genes, to how too little (or too much!) physical activity may affect our lifespan!

Contains the following Continuing Education modules:

  • Nutrition and Mental Health
  • Folate and Genetics
  • Nutritional Epigenetics
  • Veganism and Nutrient Deficiencies
  • Immunity Nutrition Guide

Nutrition and Mental Health

Low mood, distress, a lack of drive to carry out our usual tasks, poor cognitive performance, depression, anxiety...

What could be contributing to these?

We often look at work-related factors, relationships, family life, life events, and even genetic risk…

But what about nutrition?

What about the foods we eat, how we eat them, and when we eat them?

Dietary triggers of mental health problems have been largely overlooked… until recently!

We’re now seeing more research being done in this space.

And in this training, we dive into the science to uncover the connection between nutrition and mental health.

In this module you will learn…

  • Some dietary triggers of mental health problems
  • What are neurotransmitters and how can they act as mood regulators
  • How the gut and our microbiome influence our mental state
  • Which food or drink sources can help reduce anxiety or stress and improve mood

Folate and Genetics

You’ve probably heard a lot about how important folate is as part of a balanced diet, but what does this vitamin actually do in your body? And what can you do if you have “faulty” genes that prevent you from using it properly? Learn why we need folate, and what changes we can make to help mitigate deficiencies!

In this module you will learn…

  • Why we should care about folate and folic acid
  • How much folate we need to survive
  • What happens if we have a gene mutation that prevents our body from using folate properly
  • Whether folic acid supplements cause cancer

Nutritional Epigenetics

What would you say if we told you that the “nature” part (your genes) could also be nurtured? Could the foods you eat change your DNA? If so, how? Is our genetic expression fixed from birth? Which kind of foods may give us an added physiological benefit, beyond that of meeting nutritional needs? Begin learning about the latest nutrigenetic discoveries: from whether our genes dictate our health destiny, to how the foods we eat may affect our DNA expression!

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether the foods you eat could change your DNA
  • What determines who you are: nature vs nurture
  • How our genes are switched “on” or “off”
  • Whether we’re really doomed by our inherited genes
  • What bioactive food compounds are and whether they can really change our DNA
  • Whether our genetic expression is fixed from birth
  • Which foods may give us an added physiological benefit, beyond that of meeting nutritional needs

Veganism and Nutrient Deficiencies

When you turn vegan, there are 12 nutrients that you might not be getting enough of. Inside you’ll find out what these are, learn why you need them, and which vegan foods contain them, so you can be sure you’re not missing out on anything. Learn about which nutrients vegans might lack, to whether it is unsafe to stop eating all animal-derived foods!

In this module you will learn…

  • Which nutrients vegans might lack
  • Whether it’s unsafe to stop eating all animal-derived foods
  • If there are any nutrients we can’t get from a vegan diet
  • Safe sources of the nutrients vegans need

Immunity Nutrition Guide

The immune system is a network in our bodies made up of organs, cells, and chemicals that fight infection. And our nutrition plays a crucial role in supporting our immune system, so that it is better prepared to fight infection, while reducing the severity and duration of symptoms.

For instance, the foods and drinks that we consume can either help our immune cells or hinder their function.


In this module you will learn…

  • If good nutrition make us immune to pathogenic viruses or bacteria
  • What is the immune system and how does it function
  • Some factors hinder immunity and how can we minimise them
  • Some factors support immunity and how can we increase them
  • What foods can help our immune system so it is better prepared to fight infection

Good Science Beats Junk Science.

(or... Why You'll Want To Study With Us Scientists)

When most people consume junk articles and bad science, our learners want the truth.

Fortunately, as scientists in this domain, we’re here to filter out the fads.
We have a very strict research and review process. For example, when we touch on a controversial topic, citing a single piece of research can be confusing. That’s why, in the absence of consensus, we compile studies to show you both sides.
The findings are thoroughly investigated and based on studies vetted for scientific integrity, which have a higher probability of being accurate.
This way, we avoid bad science and deliver proven research to you.

Get Smarter. Sound Smarter.

Maybe you navigated thousands of health and nutrition websites. You found contradictions, not answers. So what is true? And what isn't?

Maybe you found some self-declared “evidence-based” blog, to later realise they are pseudo-scientific… or worse: fear-mongers. The problem is, when you repeat what you read in there, you risk sounding incoherent, or may end up hysterically defending points you barely understand yourself…
So, how can you get the credibility you want?
In this continuing education program, we’ll not only teach you proven science-based concepts, but show you the context and what it all means in practical terms. This way, when you talk to others, you’ll be spreading reliable information and earning the respect that you deserve.

Enjoy a Unique Learning Experience.

No more internet hangovers. A smooth experience with everything in one place.

We want you to enjoy your continuing education without distractions. So you can immerse yourself in the content.
  • Study at your own pace
  • Access everything online
  • Download, save, or print your PDF workbooks
  • Get links to studies, extra reading materials, and more!


Liked the scientific evidence, equally weighted arguments and in depth coverage.
