In a perfect world, everyone would have the time and money to prepare fresh, nutritious meals from raw produce every day. According to the latest Australian Health Survey, over 93.2% of Australians are not eating the recommended servings of vegetables per day and only half are eating the right amount of fruit. This world is awesome, but it's not perfect. If you don't have the time or budget to prepare three fresh meals from raw produce every day, you're missing out on essential nutrients. Activated Nutrients help you bridge that nutritional gap with an all-in-one product that gives your body what it needs. Our daily supplements provide the average Australian with a quick and easy source of natural your reds, greens, protein, pre and probiotics, digestive enzymes and herbal blends in one supplement for $1-$2.00 per day. Make up for missing nutrients and start to feel like the top 7%!
Gender specific nutritional formulations are at the cutting edge of nutritional supplementation. As our scientific understanding of the different ways male and female bodies utilise nutrients and respond to a range of nutrient compounds present in foods, and particularly herbal ingredients, it has become clear that men and women need different products to optimise the benefits these formulations can offer. Men and women clearly differ in terms of anatomy but it is at the biochemical and endocrinological level that the meaningful gender differences present. For example women, by virtue of iron loss due to their monthly cycles, need significantly more iron in supplementary form than men. Gender-specific processing of testosterone in men leads to elevated levels of metabolites which can lead to prostate issues but supplementation with particular herbals ingredients can address this easily. Of course this is completely unnecessary in women and so they should probably not consume the same herbs in quantity or regularly. Lastly, we removed 5 common ingredients found in our gender neutral competitors from our women’s product that our scientific advisory board members are cautious of (not 100% safe, or proven effective clinically) during certain life stages for women. These are just some examples of gender differences that we should take advantage of when designing ideal nutritional supplements for men and women.
Dietary nutrients should be food based – that seems obvious, right? Well, we have a scary fact for you: research indicates that 98% of supplement products use synthetic and isolated vitamins, which means that other nutrients are removed to isolate one particular vitamin. It costs a lot less to make supplements this way, plus it means that a brand can boast about high concentrations of vitamins in their product. Your body will always benefit the most from food-based vitamins, so we made our supplements the hard way. Activated Nutrients Daily Superfood for Men and Daily Superfood for Women are the only true all-in-one superfood and multivitamin products on the market containing non-synthetic vitamins and minerals in nutritionally relevant levels and formulated specifically for men and women’s different nutritional needs.
There's a shocking lack of quality and transparency in the health supplement industry. The Australian TGA found that 71% of tested products had manufacturing or quality problems. Not only are Activated Nutrients an innovation in healthy eating, they are also a stand against that lack of quality and transparency. We believe that the best way to gain your trust is to build quality into the product from seed to shelf. Our formulas are made with 100% natural whole food extracts, many of which are planted and harvested in their native locations across the globe. Activated Nutrients are then carefully assembled, blended and packaged in Australia in a GMP compliant, HACCP certified facility and tested by the Australian Government National Measurement Institute (NMI), the country's top product testing facility. Choosing to test with NMI is above industry requirements but assures the quality of the product. We're presenting our product with complete transparency and backing it up with science.
Activated Nutrients wouldn’t be the game-changing supplement it is without the expertise of our Chief Scientist, Dr. Jaroslav Boublik (former CSIRO Head Auditor) and our Head Dietitian, Kara Landau (former spokesperson for the Dietitian’s Association of Australia).
At first blush it looks self-evident that natural would be better but at a molecular level is there any difference between a vitamin produced in an industrial process and one extracted from a dietary source? Actually no, but that is missing the point! It’s not just the molecular structure of a vitamin that benefits your body; it’s how the vitamin works in conjunction with a range of micro-nutrients, enzymes and other co-factors that allows your body use it fully. Synthetic vitamins don’t have those co-factors but wholefood vitamins do!

Thaumatin is a natural, plant based low-calorie sweetener and flavour modifier. The protein is often used primarily for its flavour-modifying properties and not exclusively as a sweetener. The thaumatins were first found as a mixture of proteins isolated from the katemfe fruit (Thaumatococcus daniellii Bennett) of west Africa. Some proteins in the thaumatin family of sweeteners are roughly 2000 times more potent than sugar. Although very sweet, thaumatin's taste is markedly different from sugar's. The sweetness of thaumatin builds very slowly. Perception lasts a long time, leaving a liquorice-like aftertaste at high usage levels. Thaumatin is highly water-soluble, stable to heating, and stable under acidic conditions. Thaumatin is widely recognised to have the nicest mouth feel of all the natural sweeteners (Including Stevia and Xylitol) and has a lower insulin spike response to other plant based sweeteners.

“Plant-based proteins have so much going for them in terms of superior sustainability and low allergenicity. These days, the range of plant-based raw materials and a much greater understanding of the science behind digestibility and amino acid uptake makes it possible to develop a plant-based protein that completely meets the requirements for a balanced, complete protein supplement. While we believe that this formulation is optimal, we intend to continue to be involved in the science of nutrition so we can update our products as the knowledge comes to hand. That way, we can always provide the best from science and nature."
