Pregnancy Formula

SKU: FSE07

From 240 research papers, this multi-nutrient foodstate supplement has been created to provide important, healthy nutrition for women pre-conception, during pregnancy and post-birth.


Taking supplements during pregnancy has long been a heated debate. Logic tells us that to create and support a new life, a Mother needs extra nutrition to replace what is absent within even a most carefully constructed diet, however, chemical/synthetic supplements are a cause for concern at this vulnerable time.


Our formula enables Mothers to obtain nutrients from complexed food structures (from plants) that the body can absorb, use and retain naturally with no concern for toxicity or side effects.

In Brief:

Removing toxins:

  • Vitamin C and Zinc are both helpful in reducing cadmium levels, which is particularly helpful for detoxifying a smoker’s body
  • Zinc, Calcium, Iron Vitamin E, Vitamin B1 and Vitamin B2 taken together with the Vitamin B Complex can help protect against lead toxicity.
  • Selenium is particularly helpful at reducing mercury levels in the body
  • Beta-carotene helps in general detoxification by helping to activate necessary enzymes.
  • GTF Chromium and Manganese are also protective against heavy metal toxins.
  • The essential fatty acids found within flaxseed (linseed), evening primrose and fish oils are very helpful in helping the body build healthy cells

Biological Facts:

  • Zinc: To initiate contractions, the body needs to increase its copper levels and then decrease its zinc levels. After birth, however, this ratio needs to revert back to zinc in higher concentrations, in order to help the mother respond to her baby’s needs. It is thought that post-natal depression is linked to an incorrect ratio between zinc and copper, as well as other mineral deficiencies. Taking extra zinc after birth helps to make up for the large amount lost in the placenta
  • Preeclampsia: A form of pregnancy-induced hypertension that can develop for many mothers from the 20th week of pregnancy due to Vitamin B2 deficiency
  • Folic Acid has been shown help to prevent miscarriages by lowering homocysteine, which is implicated with the incidence of miscarriages
  • Folic Acid: The body’s requirement for Folic Acid during pregnancy doubles. A deficiency during pregnancy has been shown to cause neural tube defects such as spina bifida.
  • Low Folic Acid intake has been associated with low birth weight
  • According to research, women with low Folic Acid (folate) levels were found to be at increased risk of spontaneous miscarriage
  • Canadian women who consumed Folic Acid during the second trimester of their pregnancy had a 63% reduction in their risk of preeclampsia
  • Elevated homocysteine and reduced serum folate concentrations were risk factors for recurrent spontaneous early pregnancy losses. Folic Acid supplementation could thus be beneficial for women with a history of early pregnancy loss
  • Lactation: Folic Acid supplementation has been shown to be beneficial in stimulating good lactation
  • Downs Syndrome: Folic Acid has been shown to reduce the risk of Downs Syndrome. Research found that Folic Acid and Iron supplementation appeared to have a preventative effect against Down’s syndrome

Why Foodstate Nutrients? Our Foodstate combination formula provides nutrients in complexed food structures in the same form they are found in food, rather than isolated chemical structures found in supplements, so there is no worry about toxicity and 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

Omega-3 Fish Oil

Our Omega 3 Fish Oil provides high potency DHA-EPA (omega 3) fatty acids that help maintain:


  • - A healthy heart and circulation
  • - Proper brain function

It is extracted from whole fish (sardine & anchovy) with the livers removed.


Omega 3 is generally lower than desirable in the fatty acid balance of Omega 3 to Omega 6. Omega 3 is a ‘’good’’ fat which cannot be produced by the body and must therefore be obtained through diet or supplementation
