• As the world around us constantly changes, we can’t help but feel like we need to live in greater harmony with nature so that we can benefit from its gifts.

    Choosing a diet and lifestyle that are in balance with nature could be the key to unlocking greater health and wellbeing for you and your family.

    Did you know that 1 in 3 men and 1 in 4 women in South Africa are at risk of cardiovascular disease before the age of 60? This is why Flora is on a mission to make South African hearts healthier.

    Flora is made from 100% plant-based oils, that come from Sunflower seeds, Canola seeds and Linseed. These nutrient-rich plant and seed oils are rich in Omega 3, which is good for your heart health… naturally.

    Find your natural balance and #LiveMoreLife

    Cooking heart-healthy meals is a good way to start living a healthier, more balanced life. But there are many other steps you can take to help you on your journey. Flora has given us some tips on how to #LiveMoreLife.

    Go green
    Include a few plant-based meals into your weekly meal plan to decrease your intake of saturated fats that can cause heart disease. Challenge yourself to discover new recipes that don’t include any animal by-product like dairy or meat.

    Get moving
    Do at least 30 minutes of daily exercise to get your body moving and your heart pumping. Make it fun, keep it light, invite your friends… as long as you’re moving, you’re doing good for your body, mind and soul!

    Switch to Flora

    Try switching to Flora for cooking and spreading as a delicious heart-healthy alternative to add flavour to your meals. The 100% plant-based oils in Flora are mostly comprised of essential fats or mono- and polyunsaturated fats that play an integral role in maintaining heart health and are important building blocks of the body’s cells.

    NEW Flora Vegan

    Now there’s even more choice in the Flora range. New Flora Vegan is a delicious spread containing absolutely no dairy and is suitable for vegans, strict vegetarians and those who are lactose intolerant.

    This Heart Month…

    Flora is challenging two local celebrities to find their natural balance and improve their heart health with the #LiveMoreLife Programme. During Heart Month, they will meet with our dietician, try exciting new recipes and partake in a three-week plant-based lifestyle and diet plan. Who are they and will they see results?
