"All supplements are not the same"
Most of us take the time and effort
to look after our health properly and understand the vital role
that nutrition plays in the process. Fewer people though realise
the extent to which food today (even organic produce) is depleted
To satisfy the food demands of an ever increasing population,
practices such as intensive farming, indoor farming under artificial
light, genetic modification and hydroponic farming, have all
served to strip plant based foods of much of their nutritional
content. The nutritional depletion of soil is a particularly
serious concern. In 1992, the US Senate reported the following
levels of nutrient depletion in soil:
North America - 85%
South America - 76%
Asia - 76%
Africa - 74%
Europe - 72%
Australia - 55%
It is also a matter of record that...
- In 1988 The US Surgeon General concluded that 15 out of 21
deaths involved nutritional deficiencies
- Food processing dramatically reduces the mineral content
of the food. From 20% - 80%, depending on the processing method
and food involved
- As far back as1936, the USA Senate saw the growing problem
of declining nutrition, and said in the 74th Congress, 2nd Session:-
"The alarming fact is that foods, fruits, vegetables and
grains, now being grown on millions of acres of land, no longer
contain enough of certain minerals. No man of today can eat enough
fruits and vegetables to supply his system with the minerals
he requires for perfect health because his stomach isn't big
enough to hold them".
For example, if we look at the trend in magnesium content
in core fruit and vegetables over this period it shows a very
|Old Raw Carrots
|Cauliflower boiled unsalted
We can expect the position to have worsened in the intervening
It is no surprise therefore that around
45% of the UK population take nutritional supplements to counter
the severe depletion of nutrients in food (even organic) today.
However, how many of us take the time to understand anything
about the supplements we take and whether they are doing us any
good at all.
There is growing concern that synthetic vitamins and minerals
deliver very little nutritional benefit to the body and in fact,
research suggests that they can do us harm. One recent report
suggested that they can cause a 5% increase in mortality!
To understand what may be behind this, we have to realise
that the vast majority of vitamin and mineral supplements (even
those that claim to be 'natural' or 'organic') are pure chemicals,
in an isolate molecular structure which is never found in nature.
The body therefore is not able to take, absorb, transport or
benefit from much of the potential nutritional value.
For the body to utilise vitamins and minerals properly, as
in food, the nutrients are structured in a complex matrix of
carrier proteins and amino acids, and this matrix is essential
for transportation to the recipient cells, and then for the proper
absorption through the cellular membrane.
Food-State supplements are renatured back into the essential
matrix structure, making them appear as food to the body and
optimising the potential benefit derived. It is this fundamental
structural difference which makes Food-State supplements up to
14 times more effective than traditional supplements.
The Diagnostic Clinic (Tel 0207 009 4650) moved exclusively
to food-state supplements last year for both therapeutic and
preventative purposes, with amazing results. We wholeheartedly
recommend you switch to Food-State supplements - and believe
you will quickly notice the difference.
