Following Hippocrates, philosophy of ‘Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food’ we believe the best way to support overall health is through our food choices. Choosing a lifestyle that is predominantly based on fresh fruits, vegetables (from land and sea), herbs, nuts, seeds and sprouts in their raw form as much as possible will help keep our bodies in optimal health. We can do this by incorporating fresh raw green vegetable and fruit juices, raw smoothies and delicious salads into our diets on a daily basis.

However, with today’s modern agricultural practices our soils have been greatly depleted of an increased amount of nutrients. Meaning our food (even organic food) is not as nutritionally dense as what it used to be decades ago. It is therefore in our best interests to enhance our well-being with food-based supplements. These food-based supplements can provide a higher concentration of vitamins, minerals and nutrients than are found in most foods. Below is a recommended selection of products that best support daily nutritional requirements.

Daily recommended products:

1. Dr Christopher’s Vitalerbs (Powder or Capsules)

Vitalerbs is the ultimate whole-food formula, perfectly balanced the way Mother Nature intended with vitamins, minerals, active enzymes, chlorophyll and amino acids. Since ancient times herbs have always been used for their nutritional value, this formula contains some of the earth’s most nutrient dense herbs such as: alfalfa, barley and kamut grass.

Most standardised supplements on the market have been fractionated and thus are treated as toxic waste in the body. Vitalerbs is a 100% whole-food, not fractionated supplement. Only whole foods can provide all the proper elements needed to assist the body achieve prime health.

Vitalerbs provides the following vitamins and minerals in whole food quantities:

Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C.), Bioflavonoids (Vitamin P), Biotin (Vitamin H), Calcium, Carotene (Vitamin A), Choline, Pantothanic acid, Chromium, Cobalamin (Vitamin B6), Cobalt, Copper, Fibre, Flourine, Folic Acid, Inositol, Iodine, Iron, Linoleic Acid (Vitamin F), Magnesium, Manganese, Niacin (Vitamin B3), Paba, Pangamic Acid (Vitamin B15), Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5), Phosphorus, Potassium, Protein (RNA), Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Selenium, Silicon, Sodium, Sulphur, Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Tin, Trace Minerals, Vitamins D and K, Zinc, and other vitamins and minerals that nature knows we need.

2. Lewis Labs Brewer’s Yeast

This formula is the world’s only 100% natural, non-GMO, gluten-free, unbleached and non-fortified Brewer’s Yeast Flakes. Brewer’s Yeast is one of the most perfect foods known, it tastes great and it is loaded with proteins, vitamins and minerals. Lewis Lab’s Brewer’s Yeast Flakes are derived from plant and microbial sources thus making it nutritionally superior to ordinary types of yeast. It is one of the best natural sources of the entire vitamin B complex; it is also a superb source of concentrated protein including all the essential amino acids. It is also rich in nucleic acid which is a basic element in cell development and is believed to slow down the aging process.

Most other brewer’s yeast products are recovered after use in the brewing process. Most are grown in vats containing grain, malt and hops. Lewis Labs Brewer’s Yeast Flakes is not derived from the brewing process and needs no de-bittering. This product is grown on sugar beets and derived from sugar beets is a rich spectrum of nutrients. Sugar beets are known to absorb more nutrients from the soil such as minerals, metals and trace elements. As a result Lewis Labs Brewer’s Yeast Flakes is rich in selenium, chromium, potassium, magnesium, sodium, copper, manganese, iron zinc and other factors natural to yeast.

3. Zell Oxygen Plus

Zell Oxygen Plus is a formula that contains naturally cultured, live saccharomyces cerevisale yeast cells grown in an oxygen rich environment,  which as a result contain a host of live enzymes, B vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. These yeast cells are thin walled and are easily assimilated into the gut where the nutritional content is quickly absorbed into the blood stream to promote healthy cellular function and provide the ideal ‘food form state’ nutrition for all our cells.

Dr Wolz from Germany worked with Nobel Prize winner Professor Dr Lunen to design this unique formula. They discovered that by cold pressing medicinal yeasts in a natural way, the nutritional value could be preserved. These yeast cells found in Zell Oxygen Plus are almost identical to the human cells they will join together once in contact. Once connected the human cell then absorbs their vital nutrients. In every 10mls of Zell Oxygen Plus there are over 50 billion of these young live saccharomyces cerevisale yeast cells available.
