Lockdown Is A Great Time To Get Healthy – but it’s tempting to go the other way!

Having time on our hands gives us lots of opportunities to improve lifestyle choices, eat more healthily, exercise more, de-stress – at least for those not home-schooling! But we are all probably a bit guilty of over-indulging in some unhealthy habits that involve wine, beer, BBQ’s, snacks, etc, Especially with our recent fine weather


Toxins: Despite some of these little indulgences being thoroughly enjoyable, we do develop a build-up of undesirable toxins which then need to be eliminated


An Acidic Lifestyle: Most toxic increases come from increased intake of acid forming foods and drinks, and the digestive system is the first part of the body to be affected. Normal digestion is disrupted and the beneficial bacteria and nutrients necessary for processing food are compromised. Toxic waste causes a build-up of harmful free radicals that destroy healthy cells and are implicated in many disease processes, including damage to our DNA



The Importance of Antioxidants: Proper food antioxidants help to scavenge, de-activate, combat and eliminate harmful free radicals, slowing down or blocking the chain reactions they cause. Research shows that most antioxidant supplements are not helpful in reducing the burden of harmful toxins, but our Foodstate antioxidants work effectively in reducing harmful free radical damage because our bodies recognise them as foods


Helping The Liver: Unfortunately the liver is the body’s dumping ground for toxins, and despite its extraordinary regenerative qualities, we put the liver under a lot of pressure nowadays


What is Milk Thistle and what does it do? Milk thistle is a tall herb with prickly leaves and a milky sap and belongs to the sunflower family, and is well known for supporting the function of the liver. Milk Thistle:

  • Helps to the proper regulation of cholesterol

  • Possesses Antioxidant properties (due to the Silymarin and Silbyin content)

  • Has a protective effect to the Liver and helps remove toxic overload



A few words about so-called healthy spreads. Avoid them like the plague! Trans-fats and hydrogenated fats are bad for the liver and bad for our health generally


Beneficial Probiotic Bacteria: These beneficial bacteria re-balance the digestive system to combat conditions that have been created by high acid forming foods. A regular course of our E505 Probiotic helps promote our immune system and build better health. We suggest three or four courses a year of these healthy bacteria



Caprylic acid complex for clearing out toxins and waste substances: Caprylic acid is a beneficial natural fatty acid which lowers harmful cholesterol levels. The ingredients in the caprylic acid complex help inhibit the growth of detrimental yeasts including candida in the digestive system. This formulation reduces inflammation, reduces bloating, gas, colic or discomfort, burping, flatulence, upset stomach, constipation, diarrhoea, or erratic bowel movement. The combination of the Probiotic and Caprylic Acid a few times a year can significantly improve your health



Magnesium for Rebuilding Cells, Cleansing and Detoxification:

Magnesium is a master nutrient for our physical and emotional health. It is estimated that 75% of us are magnesium deficient, which is a concern when you consider that almost all of the 100 trillion cells in our body require optimum magnesium for proper function. Magnesium is essential to provide cells with the energy to eliminate harmful free radicals and toxic waste. Optimum magnesium is required for the proper breakdown and absorption of:

  • Carbohydrates

  • Essential fatty acids


And essential for:

  • Transporting Calcium to cells

  • Proper bone formation

  • Calming and balancing brain functions 

  • Our cardiovascular system

  • The proper creation of energy


The traditional so-called “natural” magnesium supplements are essentially chemicals and our bodies are not designed to use chemicals, they need food (foodstate) Magnesium


Bromelain: An enzyme sources from the core of pineapple

Enzymes are often referred to as the missing link to optimum health. One of the more interesting enzyme products is Bromelain, extracted from the core of pineapple – the bit everyone throws away! We include our Bromelain alongside other products known for their detoxifying qualities.


Here Are 3 Important Health Benefits of Bromelain:

  • Digestion: It helps reduce inflammation and inhibits the ability of detrimental bacteria (such as Candida) to adhere to the lining of the small intestine. Some estimate that up to 33% of people in the western world experience Candida albicans over-proliferation

  • Cardiovascular System: Bromelain helps reduce harmful substances that contribute to cardiovascular disease. It breaks down Fibrin in the blood vessels, which is a web-like structure that binds together to form collections of fibrinogen, causing arterial blockage

  • Inflammation: Bromelain is also regarded as a natural anti-inflammatory
