What many people do not know is that the balance between omega-3 and omega-6 is significant. These two are among the essential fats that we must consume in our diet, since our bodies cannot produce them on their own.
Are you full of positive energy and have consistently power for an active everyday life?

Did you know that vitamins don't work properly without minerals?

Yet their presence in the human body is essential!
So that this mistake does not happen to you, we give you in this article all the facts about minerals that you should know!

Did you know that a vitamin B deficiency often goes undetected?
The main reason for this is that the symptoms are often mistaken for normal health problems and many people are not even aware of the factors that can lead to an increased need. In addition, it can even take ten years or more before the first symptoms appear. For example, a supposedly healthy plant-based diet can lead to a vitamin B12 deficiency if critical nutrients are missing.
In this blog post we will show you why the group of B vitamins is so important for our health and when it can be useful to take vitamin B supplements in addition to a balanced diet.
Having trouble sleeping?
A study conducted in 2015 looked at sleep patterns among adults in 16 of Europe's countries and discovered insomnia being a widespread problem. In Poland about 31% wrestled with insomnia symptoms like difficulty falling asleep, waking in the middle of the night, or tiredness during the day, followed by Hungary (28.1%) and France (28%).
While researchers suspect that the discrepancies between the countries might stem from cultural differences of how “sleep problems” are defined, the numbers are still surprisingly high.
That means that up to one third of a nation sleeps poorly, at least occasionally!
Here are some simple steps that you can take to improve your sleep.

As some of you might know, Lisa Rodriguez is the mastermind behind our product formulas.
Libby, as we like to call her, has extensive experience in the field of nutrition and has been working in supplement development for several years. Having her at AAVALABS has been a real game changer for the company as we no longer need to rely on external experts for advice.

When we started AAVALABS back in 2011 we were just a small, unknown family business. Most of the things were done by our own family members and friends, whether it was developing, packing or testing the products.
Over the years things have changed quite a bit. Our team as well as our product range have grown steadily. We´ve also expanded sales to a number of new markets and launched our own online shop in 2018. Today we are an international company with team members spread across the globe.
In this blog post we want to give you some idea, how things have changed since our early startup days.
Here at AAVALABS we are passionate about health and fitness - not just for namesake, but because we have experienced the benefits of a healthy lifestyle ourselves.
We asked our team members for their personal health and fitness routines. The fascinating thing is how different the routine looks for each person. I think our little internal survey beautifully demonstrates that there is not just ONE right way to lead a healthy and happy life.
As the saying goes: Many ways lead to Rome!
