Ingredient Information

Magnesium

  • The body uses Magnesium to support mental balance and relaxation; and to ease stress, anxiety, irritability, worry and sleeplessness.
  • Magnesium can help to relax tense, aching or cramping muscles. This makes it ideal during growth spurts.
  • Magnesium helps to balance out the Calcium levels in the body. It assists in keeping Calcium soluble, which helps to prevent stones or spurs from forming. Magnesium also helps the body to absorb and use the Calcium in the diet, which makes it vital for healthy bones and teeth.
  • Magnesium plays a role in regulating body temperature, helps to prevent blood clotting, and supports a healthy pH and electrolyte balance in the body.
  • High sugar, saturated fat, and processed foods intake can reduce Magnesium levels. Low Magnesium levels can then lead to physical and mental tension, and reduce your active Vitamin D levels.

Zinc

  • The white blood cells in the immune system use Zinc to produce the right antibodies to fight off specific viruses or bacteria.
  • Low Zinc levels may make the body more susceptible to infections.

Vitamin D

  • Vitamin D helps your body to absorb and use Calcium and Phosphorus. That makes it an essential nutrient for maintaining strong, healthy bones.
  • Recent research has shown that Vitamin D plays a major role in building up your immune system.
  • There are two major forms of Vitamin D. Vitamin D3 is the active form, and is the same form that your body produces naturally when you’re exposed to sunlight.

 

 

About the company

Healtheries started in New Zealand back in 1904, with two Kiwi flour millers. They built a business dedicated to the belief that the natural, healthy goodness of stone-ground flours should be easily available to everyone. Today, our business is still driven by the same aim: making natural health easy, with wholesome foods and quality supplements.

Over the last century, we’ve grown larger and larger, developing a strong reputation as a top-quality flour and health food manufacturer. We started exporting overseas in 1967; and by 1979, we had over 90 employees and 400 product lines.

About the company

‘We live in furiously fast times, our mail arrives in nanoseconds. We routinely pack a workweek into a day. Even our food is fast. Although we want to live healthier lives, sometimes it’s the one extra thing we can’t squeeze into our day. Dr. J Joshi, Founder.

Our company was founded by a doctor with Crohn's disease. Not only was he fed up with taking supplements as pills, but after reviewing medical literature, he also knew that swallowing tablets was not always the most effective way of absorbing nutrients.

He found Instavit when he realized the formulations he had created could also give people a helping hand when the stresses of everyday life can start to have an impact on sleep, diet and energy.

About the company

Most supplement companies will use this page to tell you about their "Mission(!)." "Missions" are really trendy right now, but "mission" is just another marketing buzzword. Supplement companies are businesses, and all businesses have the same mission: to make money. It's how we *do* that, that makes us an anomaly in the supplement industry.

Until Do Vitamins, there were no boutique supplement manufacturers. The entire cost-driven supplement economy is (was) dictated by a complex chain of middlemen, ultimately ending up with a consumer purchasing at retail. Even online sales are about low prices first, quality second. Corners are cut, and ingredient sources are sketchy at best. We knew there was a market for people who wanted better stuff – the best stuff – because we wanted the best stuff. It was time to pull back the curtain; We wanted to know where the Vitamin C in our multivitamin came from – and we wanted to know about the bull that sired the cow that made the milk that made our whey protein powder. So we decided to Do Vitamins ourselves.

Dairy Spotlight: Arla Big Milk

 

 

 

Arla big milk is a fresh milk
enriched with essential nutrients for Growing little ones.

Arla Big Milk is whole cows’ milk, finely filtered for freshness and enriched with key vitamins and minerals. Containing iron which contributes to cognitive development, vitamin D for normal bone development and naturally rich in calcium for the development of strong bones and teeth, Arla Big Milk has been developed to meet the needs of children aged from one to five, as part of a healthy diet. The department of health recommends that, from the age of one, children move onto fresh cows’ milk, as well as supplementing their diets with daily vitamins A and D and iron, so Arla has developed Big Milk to support both needs for toddlers.

 

 

 

Vitamins & Nutrients

About Vitamin A
Vitamin A is usually found in animal food sources, such as meat, fish and dairy products as well as some plant based sources, like sweet potato, spinach and carrots.

It can be difficult for toddlers and young children to get enough vitamin A through diet alone, so parents should consider fortified products, combined with a well-balanced diet.

About Vitamin D
Vitamin D is produced when the skin is exposed to sunlight. It can also be obtained from vitamin D-rich foods, such as oily fish and eggs. If your child isn’t keen on these, then supplementing his or her diet with fortified products, such as Arla Big Milk, is a good alternative.

How much Vitamin D does your child need?
It’s hard for toddlers to get the vitamin D they need from their diet. Health experts recommend a daily intake of 400 International Units (IUs) but when, for example, 1 large egg only contains 40 IUs, it’s easy to see how a shortfall could potentially arise. In 2012 Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health recommended that the UK food industry should follow its counterparts in other countries, and explore the fortification of foods and milk with Vitamin D.

Health Spotlight: DLux Vitamin D Oral Spray

 

 

BetterYouTM D Lux 1000 oral vitamin D3 spray by Jan de Vries.

A convenient daily oral spray to aid bone and teeth health and to support the immune system. Suitable for vegetarians and tastes great!

 
“Almost everyone in Europe gets insufficient vitamin D because the sun is not strong enough in winter to make any in the skin. People in Britain and Ireland have particularly low levels of the sunshine vitamin because of our cloudy summer climate. Taking a regular vitamin D supplement of at least 1000 IUs per day, preferably more, will restore an optimum level in the blood with a substantial improvement in health and reduction in risks of future disease,” Oliver Gillie, director of Health Research Forum.

Developed under the expert guidance of healthcare pioneer Jan de Vries, D Lux 1000 is of particular importance to children, the elderly, during pregnancy and those with dark skin. Vitamin D aids calcium absorption and is fundamental for maintaining healthy teeth and bones.
The formula is micro emulsified for optimal uptake and utilisation and enters directly into the blood supply rather than being processed by the digestive system. Each measured spray delivers 1000iu, the optimal single dose recommended by the Food Standards Agency.

 

How it Works
Vitamin D3 is a fat soluble vitamin, so we have developed DLux1000 to be oil-based (coconut oil as a medium chain triglyceride), so enhancing it’s absorption withinthe body. The oil is suspended in solution using sunflower lecithin ensuring a perfectly even distribution, from the first spray to the last.

By applying it directly into the mouth, ideally under the tongue, it is absorbed directly through the mucous membrane into the blood system rather than having to be processed by the digestive system and major organs. This ensures no loss during the absorption process. The solution has been microemulsified to ensure the particle size is optimal for absorption in this way.
Because our digestive efficiency is not always assured, particularly when we are unwell or out of sorts, DLux1000 bypasses the digestive system offering the fastest way of absorbing the vitamin.

 

 

About the Company
Beacon Pharma is a dynamic, passionate company enjoying rapid and substantial growth through out Ireland.With a proven formula of sourcing innovative products , coupled with a focused, targeted and aggressive marketing strategy and a passionate sales team we continue to grow successfully
