We are proud to be the official importers and distributors of the LifeGive range of products, developed over 20 years by the world renown Hippocrates Health Institute. This is the range that prompted us to set up Antidote Health Products. The LifeGive range provides whole food supplementation that is often unique, and always ground-breaking.
What’s in the LifeGive® name?
As far as the sciences have evolved in our incredible age of quantum physics and our understanding of cell biology, life is still an indefinable mystery. Only Mother Nature can make an apple. Only nature can make a cell. Scientists and chemists continue to try in vain to duplicate in a laboratory the molecular structure of many different isolated natural substances. However, when you analyze them with an electron microscope they can look identical, yet in some invisible, yet significant, way they are not. Although scientists can make seawater with exactly the same chemical structure as natural seawater, when you put a salt-water fish in this synthetic environment, the fish dies. What is it in a natural environment that sustains life? This is one of the great mysteries of life and why we at Hippocrates developed the LifeGive™ line of supplements. If chemically-produced seawater cannot sustain life, how then will chemically-produced supplements sustain health?
We believe that the LifeGive™ line of whole-food, naturally-occurring supplements is what Mother Nature intended: highly digestible food-based supplements derived from plants grown in rich, organic soils.
That’s why we call our supplements LifeGive™ supplements… because they give life.
We invite you to experience the difference for yourself.

LifeGive Supplements Combine Cutting Edge Technologies, With the Wisdom of Nature…
LifeGive™ supplements are made from pure plants and foods as they occur in nature, which means they are easily absorbed and assimilated by the body. They’re processed at low temperatures to preserve their heat-sensitive enzymes and nutrients. The ingredients that make up LifeGive™ supplements are grown without chemicals, harvested with great care and packaged very carefully to ensure life and bioavailability.
For more than 50 years, the Hippocrates Health Institute has been educating the public about the value of 100% natural whole-food based nutrition, which is why we developed our line of LifeGive™ supplements over 20 years ago. Not only are Hippocrates LifeGive™ supplements comprised 100% of natural, whole raw foods and plants, their unsurpassed purity and potency combine with modern innovation to deliver genuinely ground-breaking supplements.
LifeGive™ supplements contain:
No pesticides, Herbicides or Fungicides
No Soy, Dairy, Corn, Gluten or Starch
No Animal Products and
No Cheap, ineffective and unbalanced synthetic “isolates”
100% Vegan Vegetarian… Always!
Why Naturally Occurring?
Naturally occurring supplements are those that come from whole raw and living plants and foods. The body recognizes and uses these supplements as a food. Not only can our bodies digest them easily, but they can also use the nutrition fully. Synthetic supplements on the other hand are laboratory-manufactured substances that have a similar chemical structure as their naturally occurring counterparts.
While these substances ‘look’ alike they are totally and completely void of the energetic and synergistic properties of the whole raw and living food matrix as created by nature.
Concentrating food extracts in a positively controlled, non-heated environment preserves the benefits of all the naturally occurring nutrients, enzymes, and other factors in its relationship to the food itself. When companies manufacture
chemical supplements, on the other hand, they create the isolated chemical structures that may be contained in natural foods with only isolated, dead chemicals—the food itself is not utilized except to determine the structure of the food compound they are wishing to create or copy. The body knows the difference between natural and synthetic and therefore sees these artificial, chemical supplements’ as toxic, similar to how it sees pure synthetic pharmaceuticals or drugs. More than 95% of all vitamin supplements and most of the other “nutritional” supplements on the market today are made with laboratory-based, synthetic compounds, which result in damage to the body, including compromised immunity.
Hippocrates Health Institute and its Division of Nutritional Research (HIDNR) are proud supporters of the Naturally Occurring Standards Group (NOSG). NOSG (www.nosg.org) is at the forefront of redefining global health standards through its establishment of the NOS® (Naturally Occurring Standards®) Seal of Approval for foods and supplements worldwide. The NOS Seal of Approval guarantees 100% organic, whole non-GM raw materials, ingredients and products to ensure consumer safety while providing the highest form of full-spectrum, whole-foods-based nutrition. Look for the NOS Seal of Approval for quality you can trust.
LifeGive Product Quality Review
All of the raw botanicals, probiotics, and food extracts in LifeGive supplements are pure, organic materials that follow a strict chain of quality control from the growing of the raw materials to the finished product.
For most LifeGive products, we start by harvesting wild crafted or cultivated raw botanical materials that are cultivated in natural environments without pesticides, fertilizers or any synthetics or chemicals of any kind. The raw materials are then washed with filtered water, dried, and packed in clean receptacles where they are held in a controlled environment at our manufacturing facilities until they are ready for processing.
All LifeGive botanical extracts are made in stainless steel reactors with low-temperature vacuum extraction. The extraction process uses pure water or in the case of botanicals where volatile oils and gums must be retained for full-spectrum purposes, pure water with grain alcohol (ethanol) is used. We then fully dry the extract through a low-temperature vacuum drying process, rather than spray or air drying with heat, in order to preserve the complete array of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, phytonutritents, and other delicate and heat sensitive naturally-occurring factors. We then conduct final testing of all extracts including heavy metal and actives testing, microbiological analysis, HPLC fingerprinting, and other quality control tests to assure the highest quality and purity of our finished products.
Finished extracts are then used as a base for the manufacture of PurTabTM tablets (made without excipients) or other delivery systems such as Vegi-caps. The majority of our finished packaging includes non-reactive and recyclable glass, or vegetable resin bottles free of plasticizing or out-gassing contamination. All LifeGive products are produced following the Naturally Occurring Standard (NOS) protocols for potency and purity.
We make every effort to maintain the highest levels of quality and control throughout the entire process from growing to finishing. You can be sure that that our LifeGive products provide your customers with highest quality and potency, whole-food based supplements on the market today.
