The Herborist

About The Herborist®

Nature has a great deal to offer us, particularly where health is concerned. Fruit and vegetables are an example of this. Unfortunately the soil, and therefore our food, is no longer as rich in valuable nutrients as it used to be. Important vitamins and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and selenium can scarcely be found any more in food in sufficient quantities. So the body can certainly use a few extras to stay healthy and fit, but of course in as natural a form as possible. There is a difference between synthetic and natural vitamins and minerals.

Synthetic and natural vitamins and minerals

The chemical structure of both may look the same, but preference must be given to natural substances because they are entirely natural and, moreover, do not occur in isolation. An example: synthetic vitamin C is simply ascorbic acid, nothing more and nothing less. Natural vitamin C from the acerola cherry or from rose hips contains bioflavonoids, the whole vitamin C complex, as a result of which vitamin C can be absorbed by the body much more effectively.
For this reason Aquarius Age Company Belgium cvba produces a range of food supplements made from plants, herbs and sea products. The purpose of combining different plants in one complex is to bring these components together so that they have a synergistic effect, i.e. one substance makes the other more potent.

Life-expectancy is increasing all the time and with it also our wish to have an active life. Keeping healthy is becoming more and more important.
