Food Form Supplements
Food Form Supplements to ensure optimum nutrient intake
Why are Food Form supplements so important? Food in this day and age is so processed and interfered with, that it is now difficult to ensure optimum nutrient intake through diet alone. Food form supplements can ensure the body receives the optimum nutrition on a daily basis, easily.
Our Food Form Supplements…
All of our food form supplements come in either capsule or powder form – never tablets and no added “nasties”. Not only does this make them easier to swallow, but their ingredients are in natural food form / food state to promote maximum absorption and utilisation by the body. We have a comprehensive range of food form supplements, which includes superfood capsules, organic superfood blends, food-based powders, multi-nutrient formulations, food state antioxidants and Omega oils.

Unfortunately, many manufacturers of vitamins, minerals and other dietary supplements use artificial additives, preservatives, colourings, flavourings, excipients, fillers, binders, disintegrants, dilutents and synthetic man-made nutrients in their products. Particularly when they are in tablet form. In fact, very often, the active ingredients comprise as little as 15% of the entire tablet. Low-quality vitamin supplements have a tendency to either pass through the digestive system unused (with little or no benefit to the user, because the body has been unable to recognise the nutrients), or more worryingly, get stuck in the digestive tract – neither disintegrating or passing through!
In contrast, food form supplements are those that have been sympathetically processed to remain as close as possible to the original natural whole food ingredients that make them up. This means that the nutrients are more bioavailable. Consequently, the body is more readily able to absorb and use them. Many of our products carry EFSA Approved Health Claims, for more information please visit the EFSA website
While organic food is a far healthier option, and more likely to provide more of what the body needs to stay fuelled and healthy, it still suffers from many of the same issues (such as poor soil quality, long-distance transportation and therefore depletion of nutrients).
As a result, many people in the UK, across Europe and worldwide are now turning to natural, nutrient-dense health products to supplement their diet, as they become increasingly health-conscious. However, there is no point in taking supplements that contain substances that are not recognised by the body, or are actually harmful to the body. That’s where our food form supplements come in.
Food Form Supplements should always be viewed as a holistic exercise, which involves all aspects of health – including everything from diet and exercise, to potential food allergies, gut integrity and digestive disorders.
