About LifeGive Supplements
LifeGive™ supplements are formulated by and made exclusively for the world renowned Hippocrates Health Institute, and meet the Naturally Occurring Standard (NOS) set forth to distinguish between naturally occurring vitamins and nutrients, and those that contain any level of synthetic vitamins and nutrients. All of the Hippocrates LifeGive Supplements undergo rigorous verification to be certified as NOS, and contain no synthetic nutrients added directly or indirectly.
The LifeGive Supplement line was born approximately 35 years ago out of a desire to readily make available plant-derived supplements. Vitamins from naturally occurring substances have a relatively low potency level, simply because the body can so easily absorb the nutrients. Low potency vitamins from naturally occurring sources will produce effective nutrient activity while positively affecting immune function and overall health.
BECOME SKIN & BEAUTY RANGE BY LIFEGIVE
Originally LifeGive focused on providing the highest quality nutritional supplements to support healing and health from the inside-out; now with the BECOME range, and in recognition of the skin as the largest living organ in the body, LifeGive can support health from the outside-in.
Feed your body through your skin!
Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician, once said “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” The BECOME line is full of edible, wholesome, nourishing ingredients, and is formulated to support not only beauty, but systemic wellness, the natural outcome of internal and external equilibrium.
We make beauty-food
We asked the public simply, “would you put in your mouth what you put on your skin?” The skin is the beginning of a secondary digestive system - much of what our skin is exposed to, we take in with an incredible rapidity, straight to our bloodstream and lymph. In sight of this, it is of course important to scrutinize the purity and safety of all personal care items (especially those which are applied and left on such as creams, lotions, deodorants, etc.), but it is also an opportunity to feed the body! BECOME is full of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, omega fatty acids, phytonutrients, anti-inflammatories, active enzymes and more. We feed your body through your skin.
The majority of our ingredients are sourced from the sea. Just over a hundred years ago, René Quinton (a French biologist) published his studies comparing the ocean ecosystem with the ecosystem of the human body in a book called Seawater : Organic Milieu. In this research, he remarks that seawater closely resembles the density and balance of human blood plasma and lymph. He concluded that purified isotonic seawater carrying algae-based phytonutrients could be used to treat a number of ailments including infectious diseases. He was the first to create a saline solution for medical use. Quinton is the backbone of the BECOME chemistry. Each BECOME product is built upon a foundation of algae and seaweed extracts, most notably Laminaria, Fucus and Porphyra Algaes. These not only assist with beauty-based concerns, such as collagen-production, cellular renewal, melanin/pigmentation consistency, skin elasticity and strengthening of the connective tissue matrix (to reduce fine lines and wrinkles), but also delivers a wonderfully potent dose of antioxidants, vegetal enzymes, and minerals.
We are proud of our ingredients & we don’t want to hide anything from you
Commercial competition and the capitalist fixation with profit has unfortunately brought out the worst in the beauty industry, an almost completely unregulated market. Leading companies regularly deceive consumers by mislabelling ingredients, using overtly confusing lists of unpronounceable materials with the hope that no one will stop and check. Governments do little to force honesty or public safety in this industry, so it must be consumer regulated. We support self-education in the field of self-care. We want everyone to know exactly what we put in our products because it has taken years of expertise, testing, research and sourcing to find our ingredients. We want to share! We want to sing out in celebration of the wonderful plants that fill our bottles. And we want you to feel confident that we will gladly offer any and all information we have on our ingredients with you.
UNITY - our bodies are ecosystems.
We believe that health and beauty are one system, one whole. We work with Mother Nature, not against her.
After all, our ideas of beauty come from nature's infinite perfection. For the ancients, beauty was imagined as a refection of health and wellbeing. It was the external articulation of internal peace, prosperity, and physical equilibrium. Following industrialization, technological advancement, and the spread of mass media, beauty has become increasingly synthetic and artificial. BECOME aims to support the reuniting and reintegration of health and beauty. We honor the magnificence of the human body and support self-healing. Natural radiance will always be the outcome of true nourishment.
Naming our Products
The concept for naming the LifeGive Become products using positive words was largely influenced by Dr. Emoto's research on the effects of communication on water molecules.
Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered that crystals formed in water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts and words, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.
