Cytoplan is our chosen supplement supplier for so many reasons due to the grounded science and proven results. Cytoplan is for those who are serious about well-being, trust that nature holds the key to real health and are looking for quality behind the ingredients.
Due to the many supplements which are out there in stores which are binded with carcinogenic excipients (filler powders that bind tablets together), the medical team behind Cytoplan created the basic philosophy using the best products possible with harmless excipients. Due to the dramatic growth of this company, they now provide the some of the best, safest and natural supplements with high active ingredients for maximum health benefits.
What we love about this brand is that they have the same vision as we do, 'Help improve the health of the nation' and wanted to 'sell the most effective products on the market'.
Due to the depleted nutrition in our food sources now days, supplements are needed to enhance optimum body health.
Comparing carrots in 1936 with carrots in 1987 we found 92% more calcium, 4 times more magnesium and 88% more iron in the 1936 carrots.
Comparing potatoes in 1936 with potatoes in 1987 we found 55% more calcium, 43% more magnesium and 85% more iron in the 1936 potatoes.
Over all we found across the broad range of nutrients, nutrition content was around 50% higher in 1936 than 1987.
Imagine what the statistics would be now?
With our food sources being leached on nutrition and with that also being sprayed with many different chemicals, this is leading to a much higher level of diseases, illness's, mental health issues and many more side effects.
Cytoplan products completely fullfill the desire to help with the health of the nation through practitioners offering the best in advise and food supplements.

Our emphasis is on quality, innovation and efficacy of product and Cytoplan has been a leader in the field of food-based supplementation for many years. We work closely with Doctors and scientists to produce products, which are highly bio-effective, truly innovative and backed by research and studies. We have a reputation for quality, integrity, innovation and excellent service.
We consider that the supplements most appropriate and safe for human ingestion are those in which the nutrients are presented in the same form as those in food - as the nutrients are in our Food State and Wholefood supplements. These are bio-active nutrient complexes containing all the associated food factors in which they occur in nature. If a substance is appropriate to metabolic activity, you do not need high levels.
The Nutrition Gap
For many years now at Cytoplan we have presented the rationale that there is a nutrition gap in the diets of most people by virtue of several factors. The nutrition gap describes the difference between the levels of nutrients the average person, eating a reasonable Western diet, is obtaining from food, and those nutrient levels identified by research as being needed for optimal health in the population.
Nutrient shortfalls are caused by a number of different factors, including dietary intake, and this means that most people are not getting the level of essential nutrients needed for health and protection on a daily basis. This deficit impacts adversely on both immediate and long-term health. The nutritional status of our bodies is dependent on six factors:
Our food choices
Food growing, processing and preparation methods
The nutrient content of the food we eat
The ability of our bodies to assimilate these nutrients
Lifestyle factors, such as smoking, stress, alcohol intake, medications etc. - which give rise to extra nutrients
Our level of activity (energy-expenditure)
If you are eating a typical Western diet, all of the above are relevant to the nutrition gap in your life. However, even if you are adhering to what we would consider as an optimal human dietary regime such as the 'Paleolithic Diet', there are still two factors that can create nutrient shortfalls. These are a) the level of nutrients in the fresh foods you are eating and b) your level of activity.
Recent findings from population research carried out by the Government's nutritional advisory board, Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) and the World Food Programme identified:
There are nutrient deficiencies in every group of the population
Most depleted are those who need it most - the elderly, pregnant ladies and children
Often sufferers are unaware, as there are no visible warning signs
The consequences are disastrous - mental impairment, poor health and productivity, susceptibility to a whole host of chronic degenerative diseases, and even death
1 in 3 people in the UK are affected
To reiterate, most certainly one of the biggest factors in the nutrition gap is the food choices most of us make, and the shift of foods consumed now when compared to 80 years ago (and beyond). In those days our diets were primarily vegetable-based, whereas now they are mainly meat-based. The plant-based diet was high in antioxidants and nourishment, whilst the meat-based diet is high in cholesterol, saturated fat and low in the nutrients we need for health. This is how the dramatic dietary changes reflect on our intake of nutrients.
A Well-Formulated Supplement
So what can we do to minimise or eradicate the 'Nutrition Gap'? The best advice has to be to adhere to a diet that best fits our physiology, combined with a safe exercise programme, and on top of that we would advise taking a well-formulated supplement to make up for any nutritional shortfalls.
So what is a well-formulated supplement?
A well-formulated supplement is one that provides all the nutrients a person needs to make up for the shortfalls, at the correct levels, and importantly in a bio-effective form.
All Cytoplan multi formulations are designed with this in mind. The formulations contain all those nutrients identified by research as being in short supply in an average diet, at the levels of need. This means providing nutrient levels sufficient to elevate the average individual's intake to optimum levels in terms of health-promoting effects.
When we state 'bio-effective form', we mean providing nutrients in our supplements that are in the same form as those nutrients occur in food. Our 'Food State' and Wholefood' vitamins and minerals meet this prerequisite. Nutrients in these forms follow 'food metabolic pathways' and will be optimally utilised by the body. Such nutrients differ from the 'isolate' chemical vitamins and minerals that are provided in the vast majority of supplements sold.
