DetailsA unique complex of Food-Grown® Vitamins, minerals and botanicals formulated for teenage boys. Meeting the nutritional needs of the adolescent is paramount, recent national research has shown that ‘Growth and development are rapid during teenage years, and the demand for most nutrients is relatively high’. However the nutritional value of the average teenage diet falls below the level required at this important life stage. Teenboy provides the essential nutrients to support the maintenance of normal psychological and cognitive function, hormonal activity and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Our formula benefits from added reishi mushroom and organic artichoke for natural reinforcement during a time of rapid development. Studies show that many teens have inadequate intakes of vital nutrients including Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, magnesium, calcium, iron and zinc. As with all our products, this formula contains no nasty fillers, binders, colourings, flavourings or sugars commonly found in teen products. We wouldn’t want these for our children so we don’t want them for yours.

Vitamin D in our Food-Grown® state provides vitamin D1, D2 and D3 in the bioactive form rather than the storage form found in many synthetic supplements. This was confirmed by Functional Medicine pioneer Dr. Bland at the Linus Pauling Institute. Vitamin D is needed for the normal growth and development of bone in teens, normal function of the immune system and mood. Teens have an increased demand for vitamin D, yet are seen as a risk category for vitamin D deficiency by health professionals since they spend an increased amount of time indoors.
Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Our Food-Grown® Vitamin E is as d-alpha natural form and contains a full set of tocopherols and tocotrienols as found in food.
Vitamin C contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, as well as the normal function of the nervous and immune system. In addition, vitamin C aids iron absorption. Our Food-Grown® Vitamin C has shown to be 1,210% more bioavailable than the commonly used synthetic isolated ascorbic acid. National statistics show that teens consume less than the recommended ‘five a day’ in fruit and vegetables.
Vitamin K is present as K1, K2 and K3 in our Food-Grown® form. Vitamin K contributes to normal blood clotting and the maintenance of normal bones, essential when teens experience rapid skeletal growth.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamin)* contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, and psychological function. This key B vitamin also contributes to the normal function of the heart. *Our Food-Grown® B Vitamins are provided in a naturally methylated form.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)* contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, normal functioning of the nervous system, normal skin and vision, as well as the protection of cells from oxidative stress and metabolism of iron. National statistics suggest that a teenagers intake through their diet alone is inadequate. *Our Food-Grown® B Vitamins are provided in a naturally methylated form.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin)* contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, normal functioning of the nervous system, psychological function and the maintenance of normal skin. *Our Food-Grown® B Vitamins are provided in a naturally methylated form.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)* contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, normal mental performance, normal synthesis and metabolism of steroid hormones, vitamin D and some neurotransmitters. *Our Food-Grown® B Vitamins are provided in a naturally methylated form.
Vitamin B6 (Pyroxidine)* contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, normal functioning of the nervous and immune systems, and normal psychological function. Vitamin B6 also contributes to the normal metabolism of protein and glycogen and the regulation of hormonal activity and serotonin for mood support. Our Food-Grown® Vitamin B6 provides food-form pyridoxal and pyridoxine 5’-phosphate. *Our Food-Grown® B Vitamins are provided in a naturally methylated form.
Folic Acid as folate
Folic Acid (Folate)* is in a natural folate form from alfalfa in our complex and contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Folate contributes to normal psychological function and, along with iron and other nutrients, supports blood formation and healthy methylation in teens. National statistics show that, despite being a time when they have an increased need, a teenagers intake through diet is inadequate. *Our Food-Grown® B Vitamins are provided in a naturally methylated form.
Vitamin B12* contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, normal functioning of the nervous and immune systems, normal homocysteine metabolism, and normal red blood cell formation. Teens have an increased need for the this B vitamin and our Food- Grown® Vitamin B12 provides the preferred food-form methylcobalamin and deoxyadenosylcobalamin shown to be have greater systemic effects than commonly used synthetic forms. *Our Food-Grown® B Vitamins are provided in a naturally methylated form.
Molybdenum is required for turning unwanted sulphites into beneficial anti-inflammatory sulphate (sulphur). Our Food-Grown® Molybdenum has been shown to be over 16 times better retained by the body than a synthetic form. Research has shown molybdenum may also be required to support iron.
Biotin* contributes to normal psychological function and functioning of the nervous system, as well as the metabolism of macronutrients (fats, proteins, carbohydrates) and normal skin and hair. *Our Food-Grown® B Vitamins are provided in a naturally methylated form.
Calcium is needed for normal growth and development of bone in teens, as well as for healthy nervous system development. Teens’ skeletal requirements nearly double those of childhood, as they begin to reach peak bone mass.
Magnesium contributes to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue. Magnesium also contributes to psychological wellbeing, the normal functioning of the nervous system and maintenance of normal bones and teeth. Our Food-Grown® Magnesium has been shown to be significantly better absorbed than synthetic forms of magnesium including magnesium oxide or glycinate. Research has shown magnesium supports calcium absorption.
Iron contributes to the maintenance of normal cognitive development in children, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, normal function of the immune system, the formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin. Our Food-Grown® Iron has been shown to be up to 44% better absorbed than iron amino acid chelate or glycinate. National statistics show that boys’ intake through diet is inadequate. Both sexes have an increased need.
Zinc contributes to the normal function of the immune system, healthy vision, normal cognitive function and the control of skin complaints such as acne or pimples. Zinc is essential for hormone production and stability, and in boys particularly testosterone Our Food-Grown® Zinc has been shown to be 75% better absorbed and retained by the body than synthetic forms such as zinc sulphate or gluconate. Teens have an increased need. National statistics show that dietary intake is generally low.
Copper contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system, energy-yielding metabolism, immune system and connective tissue. This key trace nutrient also contributes to normal hair pigmentation, normal iron transport in the body and to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Teens have an increased need for this mineral.
Manganese contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, the maintenance of normal bones and the formation of connective tissue. It also contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Selenium contributes to the normal function of the immune system, and healthy skin, hair and nails, as well as protecting cells against oxidative stress. Our Food-Grown® Selenium has been shown to be 22% better absorbed and retained than many other forms of the mineral.
GTF Chromium in our Food-Grown® form is the more biologically active form, helping to regulate blood sugar levels and contribute to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels. Studies have shown that blood glucose control improved by 57% in those taking our GTF Chromium.
Iodine contributes to the normal growth of teens. It is also required for normal cognitive development, energy, normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function. Good thyroid function in the teenage years is essential during a time of hormonal changes. Research suggests that a growing number of children are developing iodine deficiency in infancy, so levels should be increased to prevent the continuation of deficiencies into adulthood.
Beta-Carotene in our Food-Grown® form is better absorbed and metabolised into vitamin A than synthetic beta-carotene. Vitamin A contributes to normal vision, immune function, and the metabolism of iron. National statistics show that boys’ intake through diet is inadequate.
Choline contributes to the maintenance of normal liver function and lipid metabolism. Choline is essential for the manufacture of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, important for memory and the developing teenage brain.
Inositol plays important roles in many functions in the body and in the metabolism of B vitamins.
Reishi Mushroom powder is known as the ‘mushroom of immortality’ and is rich in polysaccharides and beta-glucans. This supports teens during demanding times.
