Some items on the ingredients list of your favourite foods may sound like a chemical additive but are not. It’s easy to be fooled; but these ingredients have been added to boost the nutritional content of the product:
alpha-tocopherol: a type of vitamin E. The version d-alpha-tocopherol (you may see it listed as d-alpha-tocopherol acetate) is the natural most biologically active form of vitamin E. The synthetic version dl-alpha-tocopherol, is only half as effective as the natural form.
asorbic acid: vitamin C.
biotin: a member of the B family of vitamins.
calcium lactate: produced when lactic acid reacts with calcium carbonate. This is a highly absorbable form of calcium.
copper gluconate: an absorbable form of copper.
cysnocobalamin: vitamin B12.
d-Calcium pantothenate: synthetically prepared from pantothenic acid and sold as a vitamin B5 supplement.
ferrous fumarate: also known as iron (II) fumarate.
ferric orthophosphate: another form of iron. It is added to food because it is colourless and odourless.
magnesium oxide: a magnesium source.

Lisa's expertise and experience in holistic care is second to none. I had come down with pneumonia and I was going on 3 weeks before I set aside the standard antibiotics and tried Lisa's holistic remedies. It was like night and day, I felt better in a matter of 24 hours. Lisa even taught me how to make my own homemade inhaler which helped relieve my aching chest cavity and lungs. I can't recommend Lisa enough, my only regret is not seeking her help sooner, lesson learned! Thanks Lisa :)
