The defference between FPP and other health foods
An article by Dr. Yuki Ishihara that appeared in the April, 2002 issue of the magazine "SIGNATURE" suggests that people who live in a modern civilization are in a state of "malnutrition" as a result of "excessive nutrition". This means that despite consuming an excessive amount of food in our western world, such as carbohydrate, fat and protein yet we are lacking the trace nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, which are important for proper utilization and assimilation of the nutrition we take in.
Many of the health foods available to us today to counteract these deficiencies are supplements aimed at giving us a refined form of vitamins and minerals, in unnaturally highly concentrations. These are often artificially produced and contain isolated nutrients in an unnatural state which are often taken without knowledge or consideration of our body's biological requirements.
We put forward the idea that we are actually deficient in trace nutrients because our body is no longer able to digest and absorb the food we consume. One possible reason is that chemicals present in our daily diet disrupt our body systems and disturb the delicate balance of our intestinal bacterial flora. So even if we supplement our diet with highly concentrated and refined vitamins and minerals, the reality is that they are actually excreted without being absorbed, leaving us in a state of deficiency. In fact, taken like this vitamins and minerals can actually be detrimental to health, single nutrient applications can disrupt the absorption of other nutrients we take in through food creating more imbalances which can cause health problems.
We are very concerned about the ramifications and possible disorders that can be triggered by the excessive intake of high dosage vitamins and minerals.
It is therefore important for people today living in the modern world to regain the ability to absorb the necessary vitamins and minerals effectively from the natural sources found in our daily diet.
There are also concerns over our intake of vegetables. Most of the vegetables we have in our super markets can again place us in a state of "malnutrition despite a seemingly excessive consumption of food". Vegetables grown in our modern civilization, are produced by intensive agriculture using unsustainable application of very specific fertiliserss (NPK) this produces big and deceptively healthy looking vegetables but in reality they are greatly depleted in nutrients, with poor root structures which do not have the capacity to absorb trace minerals from an already deficient soil. This is why there has been a huge increase inconsumers buying organic vegetables and searching for "good" vegetables "grown for falvour", which supermarkets are capitalizing on. Professor Takeo Koizumi at Tokyo University of Agriculture says that the reasons "why organic vegetables taste sweet" is that they have strong healthy root systems which enable them to absorb a broad spectrum of natural minerals from a fertile soil.
How can FPP help us?
FPP has great potential to solve this problem. FPP does not contain any vitamins or minerals and is made up of 90 % carbohydrate. However, FPP helps us to reinforce our body's ability to absorb nutrients by supporting our systems, ensuring they are in perfect equilibrium and ensuring maximum absorption from our daily diet. With FPP, we are able to regain the ability to absorb the necessary and natural micro and macro nutrients from our normal daily diet. The nutrients found in our food, as they are formed in nature, are the most easily assimilated by the body and are the safest form to take without the dangers of nutrient interactions or overdosing. The body can take what it needs.
In summary there are no vitamins or minerals in FPP but is unique properties balance our systems which are damaged by modern lifestyle factors; stress, pollution, pesticides, restoring our in built capacity to absorb the precise nutrients we require from our food.
