Iron & Molybdenum

SKU: FSM16

Iron is the most abundant mineral in the blood and it’s main role is in red blood cells where it combines with protein and copper to form haemoglobin.


Among its roles are:


  • - It contributes to the normal function of the immune system
  • - It helps with normal cognitive function
  • - It helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue.

Product Benefits:

  • Iron contributes to normal cognitive function.
  • It helps with the normal function of the immune system.
  • It contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism.
  • Iron is required for the normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin.
  • It helps to transport oxygen in the body.
  • It has the effect of reducing tiredness and fatigue.
  • Iron plays a role in the process of cell division.

Biological facts: About two thirds of the iron in our bodies is found in haemoglobin, a protein within red blood cells that carries oxygen to tissues. About 25% of Iron is stored in the liver, spleen, bone-marrow and muscles.

Why Foodstate Iron?  In its foodstate form, our Iron is a gentle, non-constipating and well absorbed. We have added 10mcg of Molybdenum to the Iron because it assists with the release if iron within our bodies. A human adult requires approximately 3mg of food iron per day.

Q: What is the difference between foodstate supplements and ordinary supplements?

Ans: In nature, nutrients are created with a number of food factors that effectively create a delivery system to take the nutrient to an appropriate receptor site. These food factors are mainly carbohydrates, lipo-proteins, glyco-proteins, amino acids, carbohydrates, enzymes and fats. Virtually all supplements are made simply from the isolated vitamin or mineral without any of these essential co-factors present, so our ability to absorb use and retain them is very limited

 

Why is Foodstate Iron better?

Most iron supplements are in the form of ferrous sulphate, a harsh inorganic form of iron that is very difficult to absorb use and retain. Ferrous sulphate is normally provided in 300 – 400mg tablets despite the fact that we only need about 5mg of food iron per day. Ferrous sulphate commonly causes constipation. We add the mineral Molybdenum to our foodstate iron because it assists with iron absorption

 

Q: Why are foodstate supplements in lower dosage?

Ans: It’s because they are much better absorbed used and retained than ordinary supplements. Our Calcium for example is 30mg whereas most inorganic forms are up to 1000mg. Human adults need 30mg per day of food calcium so that is what we provide, rather than 1000mg of inorganic calcium that is very difficult to absorb

 

Q: Can I take foodstate supplements if I am yeast intolerant?

Ans. Absolutely. We use nutritional yeast as a growing medium for several of our products because it is such an effective, nutritionally complete growing medium. There is no hint whatsoever of yeast in the finished product, it is completely removed during manufacture and is entirely safe even for people who are highly yeast intolerant

Multi Vitamin & Mineral

It’s a sad fact that our farm soils are desperately depleted of the essential nutrients we require for good health, and even minor deficiencies in vitamins and minerals can adversely affect our health.


This multi-nutrient provides a little of all the nutrients that might be deficient in our diets, and is presented in a food state form for better absorption, utilisation and retention.


In nature, vitamins and minerals work synergistically, so rely on each other for proper absorption, and the same is achieved with food state nutrients.
