Thirsty for a New Year’s challenge?

Thirsty for a New Year’s challenge?

Why not give Dry January a go… The Christmas period is often a time of overindulgence, but what we eat and drink can often impact how we feel leaving us feeling guilty, bloated and perhaps even a little embarrassed come January. Aside from the behavioural side-effects that one too many snowballs at the Christmas Party can cause, drinking alcohol to excess raises the risk of serious illnesses like heart disease, stroke, liver disease, dementia and cancer.

More achievements for Maisie

Earlier this year Medigold Health sponsored British Para-Swimmer, Maisie Summers-Newton, and we have enjoyed following her many successful achievements throughout 2017. After wonderful news back in November of Maisie being awarded 'Emerging Athlete of the Year', at the Para-Swimming-British Swimming Awards 2017, Maisie was set to compete in The World Swimming Championships in Mexico. Unfortunately, due to the devastating earthquake which hit Mexico City, Maisie was unable to compete. This was very disappointing for the Para-swimmer, but the decision to reschedule The World Swimming Championships was completely understandable. The difficult decision was taken following…Read more
