Hera at Barannes we are really pleased to be working with Andy Barnes of Jersey Food State and are proud to be the only local shop that stocks the Jersey Food State range of supplements.
But what is 'food state' and why do we think food state vitamins and supplements are better for you?
’Food State’ versus Free State
In natural foods the essential vitamins, minerals and trace elements we need to function healthily and efficiently are not found in isolation. They are found within a food matrix in combination with a variety of essential co-factors.
But 98% of all vitamin and mineral supplements on the market today are not combined within a food matrix. They are produced synthetically and are isolated in a ’free state’ form.
Although, chemically food state and free state supplements are the same, the body has to process and deal with them in a different way. In the organic ’Food State’ form minerals are readily recognised and used by the body, but in an inorganic ’free state’, they are generally accepted to be inappropriate for human or animal tissue.
The Food State process was developed 30 years ago to ReNature™ vitamins, minerals and trace elements back to whole food structures, so that in this Food State form, vitamins, minerals and trace elements are recognisable to the body as whole food, rather than chemical isolates. Thus Food State nutrients are much more bioavailable; their absorption is markedly increased; and in research they are found to be the preferred and superior nutrient form.
Andy regularly provides product updates and information via his blog, which you can access by clicking here. Jersey Food State also has its own Facebook Page.
