french food supplements

Assuring that our health is at its best, we require many nutrients and vitamins every day. Unfortunately, as we all live busy and stressful lives, and are dealing with harsher problems such as pollution, stronger sunlight, unhealthy food habits and pesticides. While there is no substitute for a healthy and balanced diet, nutritional supplements can deliver nutrients that may not be consumed in sufficient quantities, and provide a specific, powerful, and highly technical response to health needs.

Buying supplements in the store can be overwhelming as there are many brand options for the same product.  We have gone ahead and selected the top supplements that can be purchased at Parapharmacy Monge along with selected pharmacies. These supplements cover a variety of needs and most are made with organic ingredients and made in France. Any of these items could be used as a great gift for your friends of yourself.

The sublingual spray format ensures a better and faster melatonin action.

Retinium and Visiocare - NHCO


Our eyes naturally lose their visual abilities through age, lifestyle and as a result of our diet. To preserve strong eye health, it is useful to provide the essential tissues of the eye (the retina, the lens, and the cornea etc.) with sufficient nutrients. Retinium combines two unique Morning and Evening formulas to achieve exactly this goal. The morning formula includes three complexes which are designed to help the eye maintain normal vision, protect against stress, and defend the eye from oxidative damage. The evening formula contains natural pigments and omega-3 fatty acids which contribute to the maintenance of good vision and natural vitamin E.

Visiocare is designed for younger people who want to maintain normal vision and eye comfort. Eye fatigue and ocular stress often increase following exposure to the blue light scattering screens of our phones and computers. Visiocare, contains two specific formulas for the morning and evening to fight the effects of blue light exposure, redcue tiredness and dryness. 

How to use them:

Retinium: One white tablet in the morning, one brown pill in the evening. One box is for a month, it can be pursued up to three months.
