Ever wondered what ingredients like Magnesium Stearate and Calcium Stearate are doing in ‘natural’ food supplements? Or why the neuro-toxic ingredient Aspartame is still being used as a sweetener in products sold in some ‘health shops’?
Us too! That’s why we created Vitalife Health.
We believe that nothing unnatural, or highly-processed, however small the amount, or however well-hidden in the list of ingredients, should be present in any of our products.
Even if these ingredients are certified safe by authorities – if they are highly-processed, or if they detract from the beneficial effects of other ingredients, you will not find them in our range.
Our philosophy is that simple.
We believe that when you are taking a product for health reasons, and you are buying a product that is marketed as ‘healthy’ or ‘natural’ - it should be exactly that.
So, when we discovered that Magnesium Stearate was a necessary ingredient to prevent the sticking of substances to machinery during high-pressure tablet production, but also that studies showed it could slow the release time of active ingredients in these tablets, we opted to remove this ingredient entirely and find a different way to do things – one that would not adversely affect the absorption times of active ingredients.
This is just one example of how our philosophy guides the type of products we offer.
