Standard multivitamin supplements contain minerals that are inorganic mineral salts. Minerals in this form are little more than crushed rocks that have been processed with acids. You can recognize these minerals on a label because they are always listed with two words: zinc picolinate, calcium citrate, magnesium glycinate, etc. Even the small amounts of minerals from these substances that make it into the bloodstream are lacking in cofactors that facilitate effective utilization by our cells and can therefore contribute to toxic buildup in tissues with long-term consumption.
HealthForce Superfoods® products are derived from actual whole foods. We believe in nutrition the way Nature intended. For example, Vitamineral Green™ consists of 25+ whole superfoods (e.g., nettles, wheatgrass, spirulina, kelp) and whole food juices that have been dried at low temperatures and then ground into a powder, with no fillers, binders, or excipients added. Vitamineral Green was formulated to be the most mineral and vitamin rich product possible, sourced from 100% whole foods. Since the micronutrients in Vitamineral Green are from whole foods, the body recognizes and utilizes them more effectively than those found in conventional multivitamin supplements.
