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
