Hello Share Squirters. As I get older, I become more fearful about my health. Apart from a minor problem with the old prostate, I am not yet troubled by illness. But I think disaster may be around the corner, especially if I do not watch my diet and take preventative steps to slow down wearing out. So it would only be fair to consider buying shares in a company which fulfils those needs.

Venture Life Group (VLG) is finding and developing products to keep us healthy, especially for the over-forties. (And for people like me in their extremely late twenties).

The share price has not been great thus far, but we are all getting older and many much more frail and rickety. So we can assume the market is strong and getting stronger. This is the message that Venture Life put across strongly at the big UK Investor Show in April.

The company makes the products and sells through distributers to retailers. For example, it does a skin care range which has done very well in China (it seems everyone wants to do business with that growing country these days).

The company is also into making capsules which lower cholesterol, tackling a big problem these days. And it has a range of memory and brain supplements which is on sales in Europe and Canada. Plus a toothpaste line which knocks out bad breath. Last year’s pre tax loss of £600,000 turned into an EBITDA profit of £800,000 this time round.

Companies which turn around as fast as that always deserve further research. As I’ve shown, its range of products is pretty diverse and so the chances of success are increased.

Now let’s venture into the Punter’s Return.
