This is a special time of need for men, as they enter and work through career options. There are needs at the start of this age range for continued development physically and mentally. It is also a time when physical and emotional stress are often present. 

It is good to remember that stress is a subtle process, and we adapt more and more to levels of stress. However, we do not always adequately supply all the nutrients necessary to the central nervous system, or indeed the correct fuels to help proper brain function. 

As stress levels increase, sleep is often disrupted without adequate nutrition. 

An optimum dietary intake of nutrients is required to meet the evolving needs that men experience, both from the physical and the emotional perspectives.

In physical terms, the increased need may be considered as obtaining those nutrients that support physical wellbeing and energy production. Maintenance of good health is not merely the absence of poor or ill health. This is a time when positive nutritional foundations are required to cope adequately with daily life, building up physical resources for work and recreational time, and also preparing for ’middle age’. 

This is a phase when following the principles of ’living well’ really repay dividends for a healthy life. Key dietary requirements include ensuring that adequate water is taken daily, and this is generally accepted to be between 2-3 litres a day. Water contributes almost 60% of the total weight of the human body. The human body can lose over two litres of water each day through the normal function of the kidneys and perspiration. 
Water is known to help reduce tiredness and fatigue and increased water intake helps the process of weight loss in those who want or need to reduce weight. 

Before you start, you may wish to consider our Detox Formula which will cleanse your body and aide your gut's ability to absorb the nutrients within the Age/Gender program. It will also help replenish the intestinal tract with healthy flora and enhance your overall health and wellbeing.

Additional Comment

  • As part of a healthy lifestyle, it is well understood that smoking is deleterious to good health.
  • Being aware of appropriate weight management is also well understood. 
  • Less well discussed in relation to good health, however, is the importance of our feelings and emotions. Lack of self-esteem is so often associated with poor eating and lifestyle habits. All of us have positive aspects to our life, and focusing on these will improve our well-being. 
  • It is important that attention is paid to the balance between acid-forming and alkali-forming foods. The optimum balance is around 60% alkali-forming and 40% acid-forming. (See Acid-Forming and Alkali-Forming Food Charts and Guidelines on this site).
  • Adopt a diet based on organic wholefoods, vegetables, fruits and grains.
  • Raw foods such as salads and fruits should be about 20% of the daily food intake for optimum health benefits.
  • There is benefit in eating in a specific order: fresh ’live’ foods first such as salads to prepare the digestive system. Next follow cooked vegetables, then proteins. Anything starchy should be last. Eating in this order ensures food enters the digestive system in order of digestion time. 
  • Chew foods slowly and thoroughly, as this increases their nutritional benefits, particularly as we get older. 
  • Research has shown that reducing intake of dairy products in later life is beneficial. 
  • It is best to reduce red meat within the diet to occasional intake. As a general guide, the best meat sources are lamb, and with regard to poultry, properly-fed and organically-reared chicken. 
  • White fish are generally the better option. Coastal fish such as mackerel are best reduced, as they tend to contain more of the undesirable toxic pollutants. 
  • As the years progress it is sensible to reduce the total intake of refined sugars.
  • Avoid dehydration - take plenty of fresh water. Good quality still mineral water from a glass container is the superior form; though a good tap filter is also satisfactory. 
    During exercise, the body loses up to 3 litres and it is good to remember that muscles are composed of 70% to 75% water.
    Adequate water intake is known to help reduce the feeling of tiredness and fatigue.
    Increased intake of water can help to reduce weight.
  • Foods cooked in aluminium cookware reduce water’s ability to be used by the body.
  • Avoid high intake of beverages containing caffeine, e.g. excess coffee, artificially sweetened fizzy (carbonated) and still drinks, and soft drinks high in sugars ending in ’-ose’ such as ’sucrose’, ’glucose’ and ’fructose’.
  • Take alcohol only in moderation as it can aggravate negative symptoms. Good quality organic wines can contribute to good health, spirits, beers and lagers less so. Organic red or white wine can be taken, but no more than 1 glass a day is suggested. Spirits should be avoided for a period of at least four months after dietary reform, and beer kept to an absolute minimum. 
  • Take exercise as much as possible out of doors in clean air. Prolonged exercise in air conditioning with artificial lighting should be no more than an hour at one time. 
    Isotonic exercise has been found beneficial in reducing muscle weakness. 
  • Sunlight has a beneficial effect on the whole person, and is also known to alleviate the experience of fatigue that can also occur with extended periods of exposure to artificial lighting. 
    Wearing sunglasses can reduce energy levels, as they block out some beneficial rays that can actually enhance energy. Men should try to avoid pink tinted glasses.
  • Try to obtain cosmetics that are not full of chemicals. There is a saying: "If you can’t eat the ingredient safely, then it may be best not to put it on your skin."
  • Avoid shampoos and soaps containing Sodium Lauryl Sulphate.
  • Antiperspirants are usually applied to help reduce body odour. However, these preparations contain aluminium, which actually gets absorbed into the body. This metal is known to produce many undesirable toxic side effects.

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

 

Q: Why is Foodstate better?

Ans: We create our nutrients as fully formed foods so they are much better absorbed used and retained than ordinary supplements, which are all created with the same manufactured synthetic chemicals. Nature has created us to recognise food nutrients, not synthetic chemicals

 

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
