Vitamins and minerals are essential compounds for the body. They play an important role in maintaining good health and general well-being. They help in the growth and repair of cells in your body. A little portion of these vitamins are found in foods from the grocery store. Unfortunately, food only rarely guarantees a completely healthy way of life. Preservatives in ready to eat foods, residues of pesticides in fruits and vegetables, viruses,... are taken in without even noticing it. Still few people think about it. That's why taking additional vitamins and minerals play a crucial role in your daily diet.
And on top of that, the female body simply needs more. MORE doesn't mean 20+ different kind of vitamins in low dosages but the right vitamins, in 100% dosage. We go to the essence of your needs.
Curious to find out what you need? It depends on different factors, such as your sleeping pattern, your life phase, your eating habits,... Screen yourself and we will advice you your Insentials Vitamin & Food plan, compiled by our experts.
'long life living' vision
01. Whole grains, rich in fibres
Carbs are a chain of sugar molecules, so in the end, they are all converted into sugar in your body. Glucose is also our body's fastest energy source. The difference with fibers is that they don't really provide energy, but they lower the glycemic index of food, help with a smooth & daily transit, bind harmful substances like excess of cholesterol, and ensure a full satiety feeling. Only positive things!
We recommend to opt for whole, fibre rich carbs but reduce them after 5 pm, as your energy expenditure reduces at the end of the day (unless you are planning to exercise of course)
02. Solo plant-based fats
Most plant-based fats stay liquid at room temperature, which means that they contain less saturated (bad) fats. Fats are important for your fat-soluble vitamin needs, your source of body energy but also for your weight management as they give you a longer feeling of satiety.
03. Combination of plant- & animal protein
Since most essential amino acids are present in animal protein sources, we opt for a balanced combination of animal proteins (such as chicken, eggs, lean meat, poultry, fish) and plant-based proteins (such as lentils, chickpeas, quinoa). Therefore we do not opt systematically for a strict vegetarian or vegan food attitude. We feel best when we don't push ourselves into one corner, and whereas personalised advice takes the center.
We recommend: 2x/week 150g fish. 2x/week 100g lean meat. 1x/week 2 eggs. 2x/week veggie/vegan.
04. Omega-3 enriched nuts and seeds
Nuts and seeds contain good unsaturated fats, vit B’s, iron, and are a rich source of proteins. It perfectly fits into our flexitarian vision of reducing meat and integrating 2-3 veggie days / week.
We recommend: daily consumption of min 15g of unsalted variants and up to 25g during fully vegan days.
05. Let food be your everyday medicine
Isn’t it time to think: I will feed my body rather than I will fill my body? Whole, not processed food & botanicals have powerful health benefits.
We recommend to integrate super anti-oxidants such as matcha or spirulina in your everyday plate. But most importantly, listen to your body and mind. If you feel you are in ‘overload modus’ choose detoxifying veggie powders such as rammenas. There should be more than salt and pepper in your kitchen, right? Moreover Superfood powders (such as açai in yoghurt, curcuma/curry on your cauliflower, …) make it more tasteful, colourful & unique!
You should not eat fruit as much as vegetables, since fruits contain fructose. Fructose is a type of sugar that should get more attention because the metabolic pathway is not in the advantage of your liver. But of course, fruits also contain lots of vitamins, and they are fibre rich.
We recommend to eat 2 pieces of fruit per day, but we advise against eating more than 4 pieces per day. Choose as much as possible the red types of fruit, such as blueberries, raspberries,… but variation in colours remains key.
07. Colour your plate with veggies
It’s as simple as that. The colour of each vegetable makes it unique with each their health benefits. Variation is key!
Green vegetables boost detoxification, as they contain phytochemicals. The red ones contain lycopene which protects against genetic damage. For skin and vision benefits you should rather integrate orange veggies as they contain more alpha-carotene.
We recommend: min 300g/day and min 3 different types of colours/day.
08. Every day power, in 1 dosage. It's as clever as that.
Our essential vitamins every superwoman needs.
09. Eliminate, Exercise and Enjoy
- Drink daily minimum 1,5l mineral-rich water
- Exercise daily if possible : min 10.000 steps/day
- Eat slowly & enjoy without feeling guilty
- Be kind to yourself & listen to your mind
- Relax and adopt regular sleeping habits
