Product Benefits:

  • Vitamin C helps to maintain the normal function of our immune systems especially during and after intense exercise
  • It contributes to the normal formation of collagen and for the normal function of cartilage, bones, skin, gums, teeth and blood vessels
  • It also contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism

Biological facts:
Vitamin C is recognised as an antioxidant and helps to protect against oxidative stress caused by free radicals. The build-up of these free radicals over time may contribute to the ageing process. It may also contribute to the development of serious health conditions such as heart disease and arthritis. It plays a role in the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body. Vitamin C helps in the absorption of iron, the metabolism of fat and the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels

Why Foodstate Vitamin C? Nearly all Vitamin C supplements available are synthetically made ascorbic acid, or variations such as calcium ascorbate, magnesium ascorbate or potassium ascorbate. These laboratory produced vitamins are not natural vitamin C, they are chemically synthesised isolates that have been manufactured industrially and these synthetic molecules mimic only one component of the multitude of vital nutrient complexes that are actually found in food vitamin C such as proteins, enzymes, amino acids, carbohydrates, lipids and fatty acids

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: Do We Need To Take Vitamin C Every Day?

Ans: It is recommended to take Vitamin C every day because it is water soluble and we cannot store it in the body

 

 

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 foodstate 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 foodstate nutrients.
