Your body was designed to get its nutrition from the green plant. Whether you eat the plant directly or eat the animal that eats the plant, the starting point is always the green plant.
Plant roots grow down into the soil and rocks, pulling up materials that we can’t use. Through the normal life process, plants convert these inorganic minerals in the soil or ocean into organic minerals that we can use.
The difference is simple – the iron in a nail is inorganic, the iron in a raspberry is organic.
The problem with today’s food supply is that farmland soil is depleted of minerals and much of the food we eat is highly processed. The more you heat and process food, the more enzymes, vitamins and minerals are lost.
Thus, it’s virtually impossible to get all the nutrition you need from today’s food supply. It is very clear that we need to take nutritional supplements in today’s modern world.
The Problem With Most Nutritional Supplements
Vitamin supplements, even the so-called “natural” ones contain isolated chemical USP vitamins and minerals. They are produced synthetically in chemical plants in ways that keep them stable, and the minerals come from mining companies.
Your body does not recognize isolated USP vitamins and minerals, because they are not like the nutrients in food. It is well documented that the absorption and utilization rate (bio-availability) of isolated vitamins and minerals is extremely poor.
Nutrients found in food are in a form that is recognized by the body, and the body uses them for nourishment. These complex nutrients are part of a matrix which contains proteins, carbohydrates, lipids (fats), bioflavonoids and other food factors.
How Foodform® Nutrients Are Made
Foodform® Vitamins and Minerals are produced by proprietary processes.
Foodform® Minerals and Foodform® Vitamin D are produced by feeding minerals to live yeast organisms or live lactobacillus cultures (the kind of nutritional yeast which is used to make bread or the kind of lactobacillus cultures which are used to make yogurt).
This is the same process performed by all plants where they take up minerals from the soil through their roots. Once the minerals enter the plant cells they become part of the living structure and are turned into food. It is only in this form that minerals can be effectively absorbed and utilized in our bodies.
Foodform® Vitamins are produced by taking USP vitamins in liquid form and then weaving them together on a molecular level with the appropriate protein components.
Then they are integrated into a vegetable, fruit or yeast concentrate that has a natural relationship with that vitamin. For example: Foodform® B Vitamins are in yeast concentrate, Foodform® Vitamin C is in citrus concentrate, Foodform® Vitamin A is in carrot concentrate, etc.
Comparing Foodform® Nutrients to
Ordinary Vitamins and Minerals
To get an idea of how well these nutrients work, researchers at the University of Scranton and other American Universities compared the effectiveness of Foodform® nutrients to USP vitamins and minerals.
In a growth study, baby mammals were divided into two groups and fed nutrient deficient food for two weeks. Then one group was supplemented with USP vitamins and minerals and the other with Foodform® nutrients. For four weeks they were weighed and their progress charted.
The animals received no nutritional benefit from the USP vitamins and minerals. As a matter of fact, their weight soon began to decline.
In contrast the Foodform® group thrived, and their weight gain was normal for these baby mammals.
This study clearly showed that USP vitamin and minerals provided little or no nutritional support to the baby mammals.*
Additional evidence of the advantage of Foodform® nutrients is a human study performed at the University of Scranton comparing the utilization of Foodform® Calcium and calcium salts. Foodform® Calcium was found to be almost 3 times more utilized than calcium gluconate and nearly 9 time more than calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate is the form of calcium used in over 70% of the calcium supplements taken in the United States today.*
Understanding the Foodform® Delivery System
Another vital aspect of Foodform® technology is the way our nutrients are transported into and within the body. The Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1999 was awarded to a scientist for proving that there is a systematic process the body uses to transport nutrients directly to the cells. This same transport system is used within Foodform® products.
Isolated USP vitamins and minerals may be partially absorbed, but when they enter the blood stream there is no mechanism to guide their delivery.
The body does not recognize them as food. So, they float around and are either deposited in the wrong places, which can cause serious problems, or they are flushed out of the body through the urine.
Foodform® nutrients, on the other hand, are guided by the proteins contained within the food matrix itself, to the cells that need the nutrients.View our products
