Why whole food concentrates

In our consultations we may recommend that you take some wholefood supplements.  The reasons for this are as follows:

  1. Our fresh produce is significantly nutrient-deplete compared to what it was several decades ago.  According to The American Society for Horticultural Science, there has been an alarming decrease in the nutritional value of fruits and vegetables in the last 70 years.  
  1. Our way of life (technology, fast-paced world, pollution, exposure to radiation, chemicals we use on our body in creams, beauty products etc) puts a toll on the body, which can trigger the start of silent inflammationIn order for us to support the body and help it detoxify on a daily basis, we need extra help from antioxidant compounds and living enzymes; these are abundant in fruits and vegetables.
  1. Most of us have busy lives and do not tend to make our health a priority.  What tends to happen with nutritional plans (juicing is a big part of these) is that people start off enthusiastically,but stop soon after because it gets too complicated or time-consuming.  The benefit of these capsules is that they take no preparation- they are just swallowed every single day to form a foundational safety belt of nutrition.
  1. The science is now telling us that we must consume 7-13 portions (a portion is a fist size or a cup for an adult and half a cup for a young child) to help reduce the risk of early death. These concentrates will add between 3-5 ‘portions’ of plant nutrition to your daily diet, on top of your regular intake of fruit and veg (they are not a substitute, but a top-up).
  1. They are evidence-based.  Everything we do in our practice is backed by science, and so are these products.  There are many others on the market, but these stand out because of their solid research behind them, longevity and simplicity.  They are also certified and 3rd-party tested, which is crucial for a quality product.
