Ingredients - BODY MEAL

Ingredients

We have two very straightforward requirements to our ingredients: Quality and Bioavailability. We manufacture the product in Denmark from organic ingredients sourced from all over the world and from organically bound vitamins and minerals. Such choices have been made in order to ensure the greatest possible bioavailability: absorption in the intestines, passage to the blood and finally transport to the cells.

Because we specify strict requirements, our ingredients comply with all maximum permissible values for heavy metals and pesticide residues.

Greens

Alfalfa
Alfalfa (Lucerne) is a generic plant from the pea family. Alfalfa is one of the oldest and most extensively grown crops in history. The plant contains organically bound minerals and vitamins, essential amino acids, proteins and fibre.
Fenugreek seeds
The fenugreek plant is a herb that stems from the sweet pea family. It grows in the Middle East, India, Southeast Europe and North Africa. The small seeds from the fenugreek plant are often a staple of curry blends and contain natural substances such as amino acids, fibre, minerals and vitamins.
Chlorella
Chlorella is an edible green freshwater alga which contains large quantities of chlorophyll, which gives the plant its attractive green colour. Chlorella is also known as “the green gem” and contains proteins, vitamins and minerals.
Stinging nettles
Stinging nettles thrive in nutrient-rich soil. They grow in the wild in many places in Denmark. The leaves – or top shoots – contain numerous vitamins and minerals.
Wheat grass
Wheat grass is made up of the first germinating leaves of the wheat plant – the first blades of grass. It grows throughout most of Europe and the USA and contains chlorophyll, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and enzymes.
Spirulina
Spirulina is also an edible green freshwater alga. It thrives in shallow alkaline waters, such as freshwater ponds, rivers and lakes, preferably in moderate temperatures. It contains chlorophyll and proteins.
Kale
Kale is a variety of cabbage and has a high content of dietary fibre and vitamins.

Field horse tail

Field horse tail is a prehistoric plant that grows naturally in many parts of the world and which thrives close to natural springs. Field horse tail is rich in minerals – organic silicon in particular.
Barley grass
Barley grass is alkaline and naturally gluten-free. Barley grass is harvested from the leaves, which contain proteins and vitamins, and which have greater nutritional value if harvested early.

Plant-based proteins

Pea
Peas are the immature seeds of the Pisum Sativum plant. The cool summer climate in Denmark is ideal for growing peas and is therefore renowned for its good quality. Peas are a source of protein, dietary fibre and vitamins C + K.
Rice
Brown rice – which is wholegrain rice – contains more dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals compared to polished white rice and parboiled rice, whilst it is also richer in protein than other types of rice.
Hemp
The hemp plant, which is used to extract hempseed oil and hemp protein, does not have a significant content of psychedelic substances. What it does contain, however, are essential amino acids and proteins.
Vitamins & Minerals
Vitamin A
Vitamin A helps to maintain skin and mucous membranes, as well as helping to preserve normal vision. Vitamin A also plays a role in cell specialisation and contributes to the normal function of the immune system and iron metabolism.
Vitamin D
Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system and plays a role in the body’s cell division process and contributes to a normal content of calcium in the blood. It aids normal muscle function and the maintenance of bones and teeth.
Vitamin E
Vitamin E helps to protect the cells against oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress can occur when the body’s content of antioxidants is too low in relation to the number of free radicals in the body.
Vitamin C
Vitamin C contributes to the maintenance of the normal function of the immune system during and after intensive physical training. Vitamin C also contributes to normal collagen formation, which is important in terms of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth. It is also involved in the body’s normal energy production.
Niacin
Niacin belongs to the group of B vitamins and is a generic term for nicotinamide and nicotinic acid. Niacin helps to ensure a normal energy-yielding metabolism and keeps the skin and mucous membranes in a good state of repair, whilst aiding the normal function of the nervous system and normal psychological function.
Vitamin B6
Vitamin B6 contributes to a normal immune system and nervous system. It aids the normal formation of red blood cells, a normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal psychological functions, the body’s normal synthesis of cysteine and a good hormonal balance. It also helps to reduce fatigue and exhaustion.
Folic acid
Folic acid, also known as folate, belongs to the group of B vitamins. Folic acid plays a role in the cell division process, and contributes to the normal metabolism of homocysteine (amino acid) and the normal synthesis of amino acid. Folate also helps to ensure normal blood formation and to reduce fatigue and exhaustion.
Calcium
Calcium is a mineral that contributes to the normal function of digestive enzymes and to a normal energy-yielding metabolism. The mineral also plays a role in cell division and specialisation, whilst it is also necessary for the maintenance of bones and teeth.
Magnesium
A mineral that is involved in a number of biochemical reactions in the body, Magnesium helps to reduce fatigue and to ensure the normal function of the nervous system and normal psychological function. Furthermore, it helps ensure a normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal muscle function and the maintenance of bones.
Potassium
Potassium is a mineral that helps maintain normal blood pressure and contributes to normal muscle function. Potassium also contributes to the normal function of the nervous system.
Zink
Zinc contributes to a normal acid-base metabolism, to a normal synthesis of DNA and normal cognitive function. Zinc helps to protect the cells against oxidative stress and ensures the normal metabolism of macronutrients, fatty acids and vitamin A. It also helps to maintain a normal level of testosterone in the blood, whilst also contributing to normal fertility and reproduction.
Copper
Copper is a mineral which contributes to the maintenance of normal connective tissue, protection of the body’s cells against oxidative stress and to the normal transport of iron in the body. Copper also contributes to normal pigmentation of the skin and to a normal energy-yielding metabolism.
Manganese
Manganese is incorporated into various enzymes in the body and contributes to a normal energy-yielding metabolism and protection of the cells against oxidative stress. Manganese also has significance for the formation of normal connective tissue and contributes to the maintenance of bones.
Selenium
Selenium contributes to a normal thyroid gland function and normal sperm cell formation. It also helps to keep hair and nails in a good state of repair and protects the body’s cells against oxidative stress.
