I often find plastic-free items to stock based on what I look for myself and when trying to find a brand that creates great quality supplements that are made in the UK, have vegetarian casing AND are plastic-free I had some pretty high criteria to tick off.
That's when I came across Wild Nutrition and their range of products are next level amazing and excel in all of these areas with their supplements coming in glass jars without a plastic seal and their aim is to have totally compostable packaging by 2020 - how good is that!
I am now stocking their range of FOOD-GROWN® supplements that pack in all the good stuff without the nasties that can be found in other brands.
FOOD-GROWN VITAMIN C & ZINC
Our Food-Grown Vitamin C & Zinc has been specially formulated to support growing and active children. Research has shown that deficiency in nutrients such as zinc in children under 5 years of age is widespread. Supporting their nutritional gap can be a positive addition to their growth and development as well as reduce the risk of chronic diseases including diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease later in life.
- Zinc for normal cognitive function
- Zinc for healthy bones, skin and teeth
- Vitamin C for healthy immunity and energy
- Vitamin C helps to increase iron absorption
Uniquely formulated for children of all ages, our complex of Food-Grown® Zinc, vitamin C and vitamin B2 offers natural addition to your child’s diet throughout the year or in times of extra nutritional need.
The latest research into chronic diseases has shown us that supporting a child’s nutritional needs early on in life can significantly reduce the risk of chronic diseases including diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease later in life. Selective eating habits, time constraints, travelling, school, and cooking methods can pose ‘nutritional hurdles’ for little eaters. Spending long periods of time indoors or seasonal changes during the colder or wetter months can challenge the immune system.
Research has shown that a deficiency in zinc in children under 5 years of age is widespread. Supporting their nutritional gap can be a positive addition to their growth and development. Our Food-Grown® Zinc has been shown to be 75 % better absorbed and retained by the body than synthetic forms like zinc sulphate or gluconate. Studies have shown our Food Grown® Vitamin C to be up to 1210% better absorbed and retained by the body than other commonly used forms of ascorbic acid. Vitamin B2 has been included in this formula to support the cellular transportation of zinc.
All the products in our Bespoke Child range have been formulated by Wild Nutrition’s Co-founder, Nutritional Therapist and health author Henrietta Norton BSc, Dip NT. As well as working with children of all ages in her clinic over the last 13 years, Henrietta has conducted extensive research into childhood development and nutrition. As a mother of 3 young children herself, Henrietta also understands the trials and tribulations that feeding your children a nourishing diet can bring.

WHY IS FOOD-GROWN® DIFFERENT?
Synthetic mega-doses of a specific vitamin that hit your gut in one go will always struggle to be absorbed in their entirety whereas FOOD-GROWN® supplements pass into your system with greater ease. You get the same benefits without the need for the brute force of 100mg of chemically isolated Riboflavin. For example, one study showed that FOOD-GROWN vitamin C was 1210% more bioavailable than isolated ascorbic acid*
Over 50 independent studies support our claims and many influential experts and practitioners place FOOD-GROWN® supplements as the most effective product of its kind. Then there are our customers and the clients of nutritional therapists who use our products because they feel and recognise the difference that FOOD-GROWN® supplements make to their health.
