Most of us start the New Year with hopes and aspirations for improving our lives in many ways, not least of all our health. Faddish diets are abound and Doctors generally advise against doing a “Detox”. So where does this leave us? 

There is absolutely no doubt that a period of “cleansing” is an extremely effective and worthwhile exercise to regain our health after a period of over-consumption, primarily for the sake of cleansing the gut and liver, reducing harmful acids (toxins) in the body and losing weight


So let’s consider some important objectives for improved health that might make sense to you:  

  1. To provide beneficial nutrients necessary to allow the body and mind to function better

  2. To help correct imbalances of blood-sugar metabolism

  3. To reduce toxic build-up and enable the body to absorb essential nutrients more efficiently and remove toxic waste

  4. To correct imbalances that are causing symptoms of distress and disease

  5. To strengthen the immune system and remove symptoms of ill health

  6. To remove harmful acids from the body and pursue a more alkaline-based diet

  7. To enhance adrenal and lymphatic function 

  8. To increase energy levels



Beneficial nutrients for mind and body: The festive period can be stressful and there is little time to recover before starting back at work. If you are struggling then try:

  • Karoshil, a foodstate multi-nutrient predominantly containing B vitamins that has been specifically created to help with negative emotional states. Interestingly, this is one of the highest repeat-selling products in the range. Yoga, Pilates and meditation can be very helpful

  • Multi-Nutrient Products: Our broad spectrum multi-nutrients are designed to provide a bit of everything to promote good health and are excellent value. Try Multi-Vitamin & MineralMulti Antioxidant and Joint & Bone formula


Correcting blood sugar imbalances: It is difficult to avoid processed sugar because it is hidden in so many foods, but avoid it we should!  It is a poison that damages our health in a multitude of ways

  • GTF Chromium (glucose tolerance factor) is a mineral that helps balance blood glucose levels. We add antioxidants to ours that support the immune system. GTF Chromium helps treat and prevent type 2 diabetes


Reducing Toxic Build-up: Sadly we are bombarded with toxins daily that generally tend to get stored in the body’s organs, particularly the liver

  • Foodstate Antioxidants bind to and remove toxins from the body including heavy metals. I consider this group of nutrients the most important for human health
  • Milk Thistle is a herb that helps remove toxins from the liver and has a protective effect over this hard-working organ


Reducing symptoms of distress and disease: Virtually all disease known to humans has its root cause in nutritional deficiency and despite an abundance of food today, we have significant health pressures caused by depleted farm soils. Where possible buy organic foods, try growing your own fruit and veg and use farm shops rather than supermarkets. Adopt a more alkaline diet – acidic foods are like disease magnets, and try to consume at least 20% of  food in raw form



Strengthening the immune system: Your body deploys an immune response to anything that could damage it, so having a strong immune system is the difference between good health and poor health or even life and death. Do you get a cold or flu easily? Do you take a long time to recover from an injury or illness? These are clear signs of a compromised immune system, so try:

  • Vitamin C, especially in winter, and take plenty. If you sense the start of a cold or flu, take 8 Foodstate Vit C in 1 day then reduce to 4 per day for several days. Vit C is also responsible for repairing connective tissue to really helps speed up recovery from an injury or surgery
  • Multi Antioxidant contains several immune boosting nutrients including Vit C, Vit E, Zinc, Selenium and Co-Q10. They also help remove toxins from the body which in itself improves the immune system
  • Probiotic E505:  A healthy diet is only truly beneficial if the gut is assimilating nutrients efficiently, and poor gut function is rife in our society. Try our Probiotic E505 for improved digestion, improved immunity and a “lighter” feeling


Removing acids and becoming more alkaline: There are holistic healthcare centres all over the world that treat chronic disease including cancer with a total focus on alkaline-forming foods. In general we can say that acidic foods are harmful to our health and alkaline foods are beneficial, although there can be exceptions. What causes an acidic blood pH? Acidic food, emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients.  The body will try to compensate for acidic pH by using alkaline minerals.  If the diet does not contain enough minerals to compensate, a build-up of acids in the cells will occur and poor health will follow. Download an acid/alkaline food chart and stick it to the fridge. Start your day with half a freshly squeezed lemon in warm water, it’s very alkaline-forming and a perfect start to the day


To enhance adrenal and lymphatic function: Fatigue, anxiety and depression can all be symptoms of tired adrenals. A lack of certain vitamins and minerals can all be associated with adrenal inefficiency, including calcium, zinc, magnesium and vitamins B5, C and E. All of these can be found in our Foodstate Multi Vit/mineral, Multi Antioxidant and Joint & Bone formula. The blood dumps toxins from the gut in to the lymphatic system via the liver. Freshly squeezed lemon juice supports the lymphatic system as do antioxidants that remove toxins


Increasing Energy Levels: Do you suffer from fatigue, lethargy, nervous exhaustion, slow metabolism? Would you like more energy? This is a big subject but in brief, energy is created within our cells by mitochondria and energy is released from the cell via the Krebs cycle and energy is then stored in a substance called ATP. A healthy diet is important so eliminate processed and refined foods. The most important nutrients are:

  • Vitamin B Complex: Nearly all 8 B vitamins are important for ATP energy release and B vitamins are commonly known as a great “pick-me-up”

  • MagnesiumGTF Chromium and Zinc: These minerals are all known for improving energy levels, in particular Magnesium



Summary: This is a huge subject so I have shortlisted the areas that I hope make most sense to you. A lot of it is common sense – eating healthily, avoiding refined sugars and carbs, having a positive mental attitude, improving our digestion and immune systems.


However one thing we can’t influence is our depleted farm soils, the lack of nutrition in modern foods, and its health consequences. This is where Foodstate supplements can really help, providing essential nutrients that support every aspect of our health
