Nutrition

Say hello to a new you

Good nutrition is a cornerstone of good health, yet, as we lead increasingly busy and stressful lives, traditional, freshly prepared meals are being replaced by timesaving packaged ready-meals.
Many people are skipping meals or eating irregularly, often compensating with snacks that are high in sugar and fat to generate a quick ‘energy boost’. And few are able to consistently achieve even the most basic guidelines of at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

In fact, the eating patterns we have developed in the modern world are now so ingrained that we no longer notice the high levels of fats, chemicals, sugar and sweeteners that are inherent in industrial food processing, nor the high reliance on caffeine, alcohol, nicotine and other chemicals to help get us through the day – however, the evidence is there in the consequences to our health and the growth of obesity and dietrelated illnesses. At present growth rates, half the populations of western democracies could be obese within the next 20 years.

Additionally, the nutrient content of our food has been compromised by modern food processing and intensive farming, which fails to give soils the opportunity to rest and replenish important trace minerals. Even when we do eat ‘fresh’ fruit and vegetables, they have often been picked for market weeks before they have ripened and developed their full nutritional value.

At Nikken we take the guesswork out of nutrition and offer you a range of core nutrition essentials and targeted supplements. Nikken combines the wholesomeness of nature with the very latest scientific breakthroughs. We source only the finest ingredients to help you get all the nutrients your body needs for good health.

Organic Jade GreenZymes®

Jade GreenZymes is 95% young, organic barley grass. Barley grass is a unique source of antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, amino acids (including all the essential amino acids) and chlorophyll, and is naturally alkaline. Jade GreenZymes is the inspiration of a Japanese scientist, Dr Yoshihide Hagiwara. With degrees in medicine and pharmacology, Dr Hagiwara devoted his life’s work over more than 40 years to finding a natural substance that would promote health with ingredients that help support the body’s nutritional needs.

Dr Hagiwara authored or collaborated on hundreds of scientific papers documenting his research on green barley grass. His work with the UC Davis Department of Environmental Toxicology and numerous technical and scientific organisations has resulted in scientific discoveries related to green barley grass and human physiology. Dr Hagiwara’s research findings related to the material in Jade GreenZymes have appeared in many scientific publications, including the following:

• Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture
• Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry
• Journal of the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan
• The Japanese Journal of Inflammation
• The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry
• FASEB (Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology) Journal

Nikken’s Jade GreenZymes uses only the juice of the grass, as this is where the majority of the nutrients are. Harvested when the shoots reach about eight inches in length, as this is when the nutrients are at their peak, the grass is cold processed and then spray-dried for optimum nutrition.

Mix with cold, optimised PiMag® water or your favourite cold beverage.

LactoferrinLactoferrin Gold 1.8®

Lactoferrin is an essential protein that occurs naturally in many bodily fluids, mainly in the exocrine glands, and especially in the gateways of the digestive, respiratory and reproductive systems.
Lactoferrin is a major component of mother’s milk and in this way it is provided to all mammals beginning immediately after birth. The primary dietary source of Lactoferrin is provided in a normal diet through dairy foods, while it is lost through body secretions such as milk, tears, mucus, blood, and saliva.
Each capsule of Lactoferrin Gold 1.8 contains a combination of ultra-pure lactoferrin, inulin and turmeric root. It also contains 60 mg of vitamin C, which contributes to the normal function of the immune system. It is also lactose-free.
OsteopicsOsteoDenx®

Bones provide a rigid framework that supports and protects the soft organs of the body. Bone is living tissue that is continually being broken down and rebuilt. As we age, bone breakdown begins to outweigh bone rebuilding, and certain life style adjustments can alter the rate at which this occurs.
Maintaining good bones is increasingly important as we age, but is often not considered until it is too late – so it is better to focus on prevention.
OsteoDenx is a food supplement formulated by Nikken’s worldleading specialist research team led by Dr Narain Naidu, one of the world’s leading scientists in international lactoferrin research.
A unique lactoferrin-based food supplement with soluble fibres, vitamins, and grape seed extract, OsteoDenx contains vitamins D and K, which, together with manganese and zinc, contribute to the maintenance of normal bones.
It has been designed to be taken with our high-quality calcium supplement, CalDenx.

CalDenx®

Specifically developed for use with OsteoDenx, CalDenx is a food supplement that provides calcium and magnesium. These minerals, together with the vitamins D and K, contribute to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
