Organic acai powder (or acai berry powder) is made from freeze-dried acai berries: super-fruits with tremendous health benefits. Acai berries have more antioxidants than almost any other fruit and contain high levels of essential fatty acids, amino acids, and dietary fiber.
Our Organic Alfalfa Grass Powder is a complete, well rounded source of vitamins and minerals that is extremely beneficial to the body. The leaves of this amazing plant contain eight amino acids as well as calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorous, iron sulfides, choline and beta-carotene. It is said to be an excellent source of Vitamins A, B, D, C, E and K as well as zinc calcium. Alfalfa leaves are rich in saponins, phytoestrogen and antioxidants.
Alfalfa Leaf is known as “The Father of all Foods” and has been used for years in Chinese medicine to combat a variety of illnesses from kidney stones to rheumatism and arthritis. First used by the Arabs, they gave Alfalfa Leaf to their horses to keep them swift, healthy and strong.
Alfalfa is a true superfood that promotes overall health and wellness. Commonly used as an herbal diuretic and laxative, it can naturally relieve constipation and help with digestive problems such as indigestion and gastritis. It can be beneficial in boosting a sluggish appetite and calming a general upset stomach.
Alfalfa leaf is also used to detoxify the body by cleaning the liver, being useful as a natural remedy kidney and urinary tract infections. It has also been used to help women suffering from menopausal symptoms. Alfalfa Leaf is known to be used as an anti-fungal agent and can eliminate water retention.
Alfalfa Leaf aids in the assimilation of protein, fats and carbohydrates. Alfalfa leaf can even reduce plaque in the arteries which can help support a healthy heart. It can be highly beneficial against both anemia and asthma. The rich amount of vitamins and minerals found in alfalfa can help with malnutrition from anorexia or other disorders. Alfalfa Leaf is high in alkaline and can therefore be used to remedy acidic conditions. Alfalfa can increase the ability of blood to clot after injury; therefore alfalfa should not be used while taking aspirin or anti-clotting medication.
Alfalfa contains Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). The aging process has been directly linked to decreasing amounts of SOD in our system. Increased amounts of SOD cause our body to repair itself quicker. Additionally SOD acts as an anti-inflammatory.
Alfalfa is most commonly added to other herbs due to its high level of nutritional qualities. Add to baths or body wraps to soothe aching muscles or to relieve swelling of the body. Ingest in teas, smoothies or mix with juice. Feel the powerful benefits of this true superfood today with our raw Organic Alfalfa Leaf powder.
Some possible benefits of our raw Organic Alfalfa Grass powder may include:
Amla powder(aka Amalaki or Indian Gooseberry) is known as the Great Rejuvenator. It is traditionally used for a variety of digestive problems, enhancing cellular regeneration and is well known for its possible antibacterial and antioxidant properties. It may support a healthy heart and brain through promoting stronger circulation. It has also been used to improve eyesight, regulate elimination, enhances fertility, help the urinary system, acts as a body coolant, flushes out toxins, increases vitality, strengthens the eyes, improves muscle tone, strengthen the bones and teeth and cause hair and nails to grow. Fortifying for the liver, spleen and lungs, amla is excellent for helping to flush out toxins and has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic herbal applications.
Unlike many superfoods being introduced today, the chemical profile of raw amalaki cannot be limited to one star ingredient or beneficial compound. Instead, research has discovered an unparalleled spectrum of powerful anti-oxidants, polyphenols, tannic acids and bioflavonoids. Amla also contains a high concentration of amino acids, trace minerals and other beneficial phytonutrients.
Raw Amla Powder (Amalaki) also contains the potent phenolic combination of ellagic acid, gallic acid and emblicanin A+B. Together these polyphenols are important for reducing cellular and oxidative stress, destroying immune damaging free radicals and supporting the overall detoxification of the body. The bioflavonoids, rutin and quercetin also contribute to the overall antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and youth promoting qualities of this remarkable fruit. Additionally, amla contains the potent antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase and catalase.
Amla may also be used externally and may work as an excellent moisturizer promoting healthy radiant skin, hair and nails. Raw Amla can be used in shampoos to nourish the hair and scalp and may prevent premature grey hair.
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Amla Fruit Powder may include:
Our Raw Organic Amla Fruit Powder comes from sustainably harvested Amalaki trees natively grown in India. No chemicals or pesticides are used in the cultivation.

Ashwagandha shows remarkable promise for possibly increasing brain function. It has been used traditionally in India for people with mental deficits in geriatric patients. Researchers have found that ashwagandha may possibly increase acetylcholine receptor activity. Increased acetylcholine receptor capacity might partly explain the cognition-enhancing and memory-improving effects of extracts from ashwagandha observed in animals and humans. Further studies indicate that ashwagandha may stimulate the growth of axons and dendrites.
According to traditional Ayurvedic medicine, Ashwagandha most likely affects multiple body systems to promote emotional well-being, mental sharpness and physical endurance. Pharmacological studies indicate the mechanism of action is Withaferin-A, a primary Withanolide in Ashwagandha, which stimulates neurotransmitter pathways in the brain. This may effect enhances memory and other cognitive processes. Scientists have yet to pinpoint the specific functions supporting immune system response and other regulatory body systems, though it is believed that all the active glycowithanolides that derive from the plant work together to alleviate anxiety and panic, mild mood swings, lack of mental clarity/focus and mental/physical fatigue.
Research has also found that raw ashwagandha may increase the levels of three naturally powerful antioxidants: superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase. The effects of these antioxidants may explain the reported anti-stress, cognition-facilitating, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging effects produced in experimental animal and in clinical situations.
These findings are consistent with the therapeutic use of ashwagandha root in Ayurveda as an overall health promoter. The root is primarily recognized for its adaptogenic properties. An adaptogen is a physiological agent with the ability to nourish the body. Through this nourishment the body is now able to better deal with daily emotional and physical stresses. Ayurvedic practitioners traditionally use Ashwagandha to promote gentle relaxation, emotional balance, and sexual vitality
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Ashwagandha Root Powder may include:
Raw organic baobab fruit is highly nutritious and a source of antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium, Manganese, Zinc, Phosphorus, Iron, protein and dietary fiber (soluble and insoluble).
With an ORAC value of 1,400 per gram, Baobab Fruit Powder exceeds the ORAC values of many other popular super fruits.
Ounce for ounce, baobab fruit contains six times the Vitamin C found in oranges, three times the iron found in spinach, three times the antioxidants found in blueberries, three times the calcium found in milk, and six times the potassium of bananas. Baobab fruit also contains all 8 essential amino acids and is also a source of pectins, triterpenoids beta-sitosterol, beta-amyrin palmitate, alpha-amyrin palmitate, sterols, saponins, triterpenes, and ursolic acids. 100 grams of powder contains 293 mg of calcium, 2.31 mg of potassium, 96-118 mg of phosphorus, and linolenic acid (27 µg of acid per gram of product expressed in dry weight).
Baobab fruit is especially known for its content of Vitamin C; in particular, 100 grams of pulp contain up to 300 mg of vitamin C. Vitamin C has historically been used to combat scurvy, a syndrome occurring in humans whose diet is deficient in fresh fruit and vegetables, and possibly protects against free radicals, because it is the most effective antioxidant in hydrophilic compartments. Additionally, it may support several metabolic processes including collagen biosynthesis in connective tissue and neurotransmitter health. It also may support calcium absorption and iron bioavailability, and it is related to the prevention of many ailments.
Today, dietary fiber has gained increased importance as a component of the diet, for its capability to influence multiple aspects of the digestive tract. Baobab fruit powder is very high in dietary fiber which may be associated with a reduction of the risk of cellular mutation and may support healthy digestion.
The optimal level of dietary fiber consumption has not yet been defined, but it is generally accepted that fiber is fundamental in the composition of a healthy and balanced diet. Consumption of fiber-rich foods also may reduce constipation and weight gain. Baobab fruit pulp powder provides soluble and insoluble fibers, with an amount of about 50 grams/100 grams of powder. The insoluble fibers are not absorbed by the intestine and are useful for relieving constipation and to create a feeling of satiety.
The Baobab fruit pulp shows interesting properties in the stimulation of the intestinal microflora growth. Studies carried out in Research Centers have shown that the hydrosoluble fraction of the fruit pulp has supporting effects on the proliferation of Bifidobacteria. In fact, soluble dietary fibers, like those contained in the pulp (about 25%), are known to have prebiotics effects possibly supporting the growth and/or the metabolic activity of beneficial organisms.
According to the International Centre for Underutilized Crops at the University of Southampton, the baobab is ‘fruit of the future’ because of its amazing nutritional benefits.
Some possible traditional uses of Wildcrafted Raw Organic Baobab Fruit Powder may include:
Constituents of Baobab Fruit include:
Our raw Organic Barley Grass is one of the most nutrient rich foods in nature. Barley grass is rich in protein and contains 20 amino acids, 12 vitamins and 13 minerals. The nutrition of barley grass is similar to that of wheatgrass though some prefer the taste. Our raw organic barley grass powder is an easy way to get the nutrition of this incredible green food.
Organic barley grass is a powerful detoxifier of the liver, blood, and gastrointestinal tract while chemically neutralizing toxins. The enzymes and amino acids found in barley grass may help protect the body from free radicals and carcinogens. Barley grass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood and increasing red blood-cell count. It may also aid in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.
Barley grass is rich in protein and includes all eight of the essential amino acids, as well as 12 of the remaining 16 non essential amino acids. Besides containing most vitamins, minerals and an excellent source of living chlorophyll, organic barley grass has three other special components which make it particularly valuable:
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) – The aging process has been directly linked to decreasing amounts of SOD in our system. Increased amounts of SOD cause our body to repair itself quicker. Additionally SOD acts as an anti-inflammatory.
P4D1 Enzyme – P4D1 has been found to do two things in the human body. It is the first known substance to actually stimulate repair of DNA molecules. It is possible that disease cells can be repaired with P4D1 so that when they reproduce they will actually produce good cells. P4D1 has also been shown in laboratory tests to eat the protein sheath off a cancer cell so that the white blood cells can attack and destroy them.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) – GAGs form an important component in the synovial fluid lubricant in body joints, and chondroitins which can be found in connective tissues, cartilage and tendons.
Some possible benefits of our raw organic Barley Grass powder may include:
Organic, non-GMO, raw Beet Root Powder provides a wide range of nutrients, but its most significant phytochemical is betaine. This plant chemical may support liver and kidney health by recycling the amino acid methionine to maintain the body’s stores of s-adenosyl-methionine, more commonly known as SAM-e. Betaine may also support the livers ability to process fat. This may possibly prevent the accumulation of fatty tissues in the liver, especially in heavy drinkers, and it also may support healthy lipid levels. The American Heart Association, recommends beet juice to support healthy blood pressure levels.
Organic Beet Root Powder is a nourishing tonic that supports the building of blood, particularly improving the blood quality for women. It also may normalize the blood’s pH balance (reducing acidity) and may support healthy circulation. Further supporting its role as a possible blood nourisher, Beet Root has been used to support a healthy detoxification process of the hepatic system.
Beet roots are sources of potassium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium and calcium as well as vitamin A, B and C. Beets are a source of phytonutrients called betalains which give beets their dark red color. Betanin and vulgaxanthin are the two best studied betalains from beets, and both have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support.
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Beet Root Powder may include:
Well it turns out that your mother was right (again!) when she said to eat your broccoli. When it comes to basic nutrients, broccoli is the king. Ounce for ounce, broccoli has more vitamin C than an orange and as much calcium as a glass of milk. One medium spear has three times more fiber than a slice of wheat bran bread. Broccoli is also one of the richest sources of beta-carotene in the produce section.
Broccoli has a strong, positive impact on our body’s detoxification system, and researchers have recently identified one of the key reasons for this detox benefit. Glucoraphanin, gluconasturtiian, and glucobrassicin are 3 glucosinolate phytonutrients found in a special combination in broccoli. This dynamic trio is able to support all steps in body’s detox process, including activation, neutralization, and elimination of unwanted contaminants. Isothiocyanates (ITCs) are the detox-regulating molecules made from broccoli’s glucosinolates, and they help control the detox process at a genetic level.
Broccoli may help us solve our vitamin D deficiency epidemic. When large supplemental doses of vitamin D are needed to offset deficiency, ample supplies of vitamin K and vitamin A help keep our vitamin D metabolism in balance. Broccoli has an unusually strong combination of both vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene) and vitamin K. For people faced with the need to rebuild vitamin D stores through vitamin D supplements, broccoli may be an ideal food to include in the diet.
Broccoli is a particularly rich source of a flavonoid called kaempferol. Recent research has shown the ability of kaempferol to lessen the impact of allergy-related substances on our body. This kaempferol connection helps to explain the unique anti-inflammatory benefits of broccoli, and it should also open the door to future research on the benefits of broccoli for a hypoallergenic diet. Broccoli provides high levels of vitamin C, which aids iron absorption in the body, combats the development of cataracts, as well as easing the symptoms of the common cold.
The folate (also known as vitamin B9 and natural folic acid) in broccoli helps women sustain normal tissue growth and is often used as a supplement when taking birth control pills and during pregnancies.
The potassium in broccoli aids those battling high blood pressure, while a large amount of calcium helps combat osteoporosis. The vegetable is also fiber-rich, which enhances the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, as well as supporting healthy cholesterol levels.
In recent years, broccoli has made the headlines regarding three components found in the vegetable. For instance, indole-3-carbinol has captured the attention of those looking to prevent hormone-related cancers, such as breast and prostate cancer. I3C promotes “good” hormones, while working against destructive ones. The sulforaphane in broccoli also helps to increase the level of enzymes that block cancer, while the beta-carotene in broccoli transforms into vitamin A within the body, providing an effective antioxidant that destroys free radicals (responsible for weakening the defense of cells).
Some possible benefits of our Raw Organic Broccoli Powder may include:
This specialized strain of raw Chlorella algae has a thin cell wall allowing it to be easily digested. It is aseptically grown in closed stainless steel tanks completely eliminating the possibility of contamination from outside sources including microbes, pollution, toxic substances, and heavy metals. The thin cell wall increases digestibility by 80-90%+ over that of normal chlorella. This naturally thin cell wall chlorella powder does not need to undergo a separate process to break the cell wall which, can potentially damage the nutritional content. A secondary advantage of the advanced pure tank cultivation is that the chlorella has a naturally improved taste and smell when compared to those grown in open ponds. This strain is especially rich in chlorella growth factor (CGF) as well as vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, and other phytonutrients. Our raw thin cell wall chlorella contains absolutely no added binders, fillers, or flow agents.
If you are looking for a supplement to maintain overall health with additional cleansing properties, you’ll want to add thin cell wall raw Chlorella to your nutritional program. Chlorella is an emerald green, single-celled freshwater microalgae widely recognized as one of the most potent nutritional whole foods on Earth. Each chlorella cell is a self-sufficient organism with all the plant’s life functions taking place inside the cell. The result – an unusually high concentration of important nutrients. This tiny plant contains the highest known quantity of chlorophyll within a natural source. Chlorophyll is the ‘green blood’ of all plant life and has a chemical structure very similar to our own red blood molecules. Chlorophyll supports the transportation of oxygen around the blood supply and builds the red blood cell count. It nourishes and purifies the blood stream, kidneys, liver and bowel. Scientists and medical professionals have long recognized the importance of chlorophyll in the diet as a possible bowel supporting agent and natural deodorant, and topically as a wound-healer. Many green foods are good sources of chlorophyll, but results of recent laboratory tests show that Chlorella has more than five times more milligrams of chlorophyll per serving than wheat grass, twelve times more than barley and nearly 10 times more than alfalfa.
Advantages of our advanced pure tank cultivation method:

Some possible traditional uses of Raw Thin Cell Wall Chlorella Powder may include:
Cinnamon is one of the oldest and most recognizable flavors in the world. Ancient Egyptians imported cinnamon from China and used it as a medicine and food enhancer. Since then it has been used in just about every type of food product available.
Preliminary lab and animal studies have found that cinnamon may have antibacterial and antifungal properties. It may also have an anti-clotting effect on the blood. Several studies suggest that non-GMO cinnamon may have a supportive effect on blood sugar, making it possibly beneficial for people with type 2 diabetes.
Other studies with cinnamon have shown an amazing ability to stop medication-resistant yeast infections. One study even found that smelling cinnamon may support cognitive function and memory. In a study published by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Maryland, cinnamon was shown to reduce the proliferation of mutated cells.
During research at Copenhagen University, patients were given half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder combined with one tablespoon of honey every morning before breakfast; after only one week the patients had significant relief in arthritis pain. Studies have shown that just 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day may possibly support healthy lipid levels and when added to food; it may support inhibiting bacterial growth and food spoilage making it a natural food preservative.
Cinnamon is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.
Some possible health benefits and traditional uses of Raw Organic Cinnamon Powder may include:
In the past, coconut was believed to be unhealthy due to its high saturated fat content. However, it has now been proven that fat contained in coconut is unlike any other fat on Earth and has high nutritional value. So, why is coconut fat different?
Coconut has a unique fat molecule; this is what makes it’s fat different from most fats we consume.Our Coconut Milk Powder is a delicious milk alternative for those who do not consume animal dairy products.
The Coconut Research Center explains, “The vast majority of fats and oils in our diets, whether they are saturated or unsaturated or come from animals or plants, are composed of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA). Some 98 to 100% of all the fatty acids you consume are LCFA.” Coconut is known to have MCFA or medium-chain fatty acids, also referred to as MCT or medium-chain triglycerides. MCFA are metabolized by the human body differently because of their size; unlike the saturated and unsaturated fats in vegetable oils, eggs, milk, and meats, which contain LCFA, coconut is a rare dietary source of MCFA and therefore highly beneficial to the body and overall health. Only recently has modern medical science unlocked the secrets to coconut’s amazing healing powers.
Coconut milk is a dairy-free alternative for those who are lactose intolerant or allergic to casein (sodium caseinate) or animal milk.
This vegan drink is also soy-free and gluten-free.
The presence of lauric acid in coconut is another reason it is known for having super nutritional value. Lauric acid is a fatty acid found in human breast milk. The article, “How a PR Campaign Led to Unhealthy Diets by Beatrice Trum Hunter, published in the August 2003 issue of Consumer’s Research, volume 86 no. 8, states “Researchers demonstrated that coconut fat may reduce the risk of degenerative conditions. It may help prevent bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, as a result of its antimicrobial component, lauric acid, which is found solely in coconut fat and in breast milk.”
We dry our coconut at a low temperature to preserve all the naturally occurring enzymes, nutrients, and flavor. It is unsweetened, unadulterated and preservative free. Plus, it’s delicious.
Some possible health benefits and traditional uses of Coconut Milk Powder may include:
Constituents of Coconut Milk include:
Our non-GMO Cordyceps Mushroom Extract Powder is a 10% extract (3:1 ratio) meaning each serving contains a 10% concentration of Cordycepic Acid. Cordycepic Acid is the source of most of the nutritional benefits typically associated with cordyceps mushroom. Additionally our cordyceps mushroom extract contains 25% Polysaccharides and 0.3% Adenosine.
The powerful benefits from eating cordyceps were initially recognized approximately fifteen hundred years ago. Shepherd farmers tending to their herds in the Tibetan mountain ranges realized a difference in their livestock. The cattle had become quite vigorous and were acting more youthful while eating a small mushroom that resembled grass. Ever since this time cordyceps mushroom has become a popular pick-me-up stimulant that seemed to support many other physiological issues such as better organ functionality, improved immunity, endurance, and general strength and well being.
The Cordyceps mushroom gained fame when Chinese Olympic athletes in 1992 credited their successes to taking the mushroom. In traditional Chinese medicine, Cordyceps fungus is touted as an effective herb for supporting circulation, respiration, immune health and sexual function, as well as a host of other bodily functions. Because of it’s ability to possible sustain energy, stamina, appetite, endurance, and sleeping patterns, it has also been classified as a general health tonic. Cordyceps may support adrenal and lung function which may lead to a reduction in allergies, depression, colds and the flu. It is traditionally used for people who feel short of breath, achy, or depressed from overwork, pollution, and bad dietary habits. In traditional Chinese medicine, Cordyceps is used for the kidney and lungs meridians. Cordyceps also increases levels of natural-antioxidants and is spoken about in old chinese texts to possibly promote longevity. This fungus also may have the ability to increase the ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate) production in human cell’s mitochondria which is known to increase energy levels in those who use it. It is especially good for people who are involved in athletics or enjoy vigorous sports and activities. Athletes who used Cordyceps in their training programs surprised everyone including sports authorities when they broke the 10,000 meter World track record in 1993 and shattered dozens of world records in just one year.
Cordyceps is traditionally known to support healthy sexual function. In traditional Chinese medicine, cordyceps are used by males suffering erectile dysfunction. It is known for its yin and yang capacity and as a strong yang tonic it reinforces the kidney channel, also of traditional medicine teachings, an area known for sexual desire and vitality.Many studies and investigations have been conducted that display the results of cordyceps and their ability to stimulate the discharge of testosterone as it relaxes the smooth corpus cavernosum muscle found in the penis.
Cordyceps have displayed an ability to support cardiovascular health via a capacity to lower a person’s bad LDL cholesterol as they raise the good stuff, the HDL cholesterol level. This action may aid in the prevention of strokes or heart attacks. There have been clinical trials and investigations that show people who suffer from heart disease may be able to amazingly rebound and begin progressive healing while taking cordyceps along with their physician prescribed pharmaceuticals.
Your kidneys have been referred to as “the root of life” in TCM and so cordyceps has been utilized primarily as a treatment for kidney malfunction. Recent medical research has verified that cordyceps are supportive to the kidneys while they also may possibly aid in improving their operational capability. Kidney transplant patients have taken cordyceps and found them very effective at aiding in healing processes. There is one caveat here that when using cordyceps for kidney conditions you should only do so under the guidance of a medical professional.
Cordyceps have traditionally been a way of making the body stronger and building up its constitution and supporting the immune system. Cordyceps mayl trigger the development of immunity cells like macrophages, lymphocytes, T helper cells and interleukin within your system. They may possibly act as an extraordinary immunity regulator since they will stimulate the underachieving immunity cells and calm the overactive types.
In China researchers have been investigating the ability of cordyceps to restrain cancer cells. But this research has not been verified by the US FDA.
Some possible traditional uses of Pure Cordyceps Mushroom Extract Powder may include:
Palmaria palmata, or dulse is reddish brown and thought of as a delicacy by many. It has doubtless been harvested for many centuries but, the earliest recording is 1400 years ago; St Columba and the monks of Iona ate it. Icelandic peoples also used it from early times. Now it is being cultivated and sold as a gourmet food. In Nova Scotia it is called Sea Parsley.
Dulse seaweed (Rhodymenia palmata) comes from a sea vegetable that has a fine distinct taste of the sea. Naturally mineral rich, our raw Organic Dulse powder can be easily included in practically any dish. Sprinkle it on entrees, soups and salads. Or add it to smoothies, teas and iced drinks. Our organic Dulse powder comes from the pristine and protected oceans off the coast of Canada.
Dulse is also a great natural source of Iodine / Potassium iodide (KI). Iodine is a chemical element essential for the production of thyroid hormones that regulate growth and metabolism. Iodine / Potassium iodide (KI), administered orally immediately after exposure to certain types of radiation, may be used to protect the thyroid from ingested radioactive iodine. But Potassium iodide (KI) / Iodine would only be effective if the radiation contains radioactive iodine. This natural form of Iodine from Dulse is absorbed by your body more slowly and safely than chemical or synthetic iodine. Further, Dulse helps promote an alkaline pH balance within the body and also boosts the immune system.
Dulse, contains around 10 – 20% protein and a whole slew of vitamins and minerals including, Alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, cobalt, lutein, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin, selenium, silicon, sodium, tin, zeaxanthin, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, iodine, manganese, copper, chromium, zinc, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, E and zinc. Unlike other seaweeds, it is relatively low in sodium.
Dulse powder is an excellent source of other phytochemicals and minerals. The complex polysaccharides in the herb make it a gentle alternative to psyllium or senna for the use of constipation. There are anecdotal reports that the daily use of a few flakes of Dulse can relieve cyclic mastalgia after two months. Dulse is eaten also with fish and butter, boiled with milk and rye flour, or as a relish. The gelatinous substance contained in Dulse is a thickening agent and imparts a reddish color to the food with which it is mixed.
In several traditions of European herbal medicine, Dulse powder was used to remove parasites, to relieve constipation and as a treatment for scurvy. Diets deficient in iodine increase the risk of retarded brain development in children (cretinism), mental slowness, high cholesterol, lethargy, fatigue, depression, weight gain, and goiter: a swelling of the thyroid gland in the neck.
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Dulse Seaweed Powder may include:
Native to southeastern Asia, a region whose cuisines still feature this wonderfully spicy herb, ginger has been renowned for millennia in many areas throughout the world. Non-GMO ginger is mentioned in ancient Chinese, Indian and Middle Eastern writings, and has long been prized for its aromatic, culinary and medicinal properties. After the ancient Romans imported ginger from China almost two thousand years ago, its popularity in Europe remained centered in the Mediterranean region until the Middle Ages when its use spread throughout other countries.
Historically, ginger has a long tradition of being very effective in possibly supporting a healthy gastrointestinal tract. In herbal medicine, ginger is regarded as an excellent carminative — a substance which promotes the elimination of intestinal gas, and an intestinal spasmolytic — a substance which relaxes and soothes the intestinal tract.
Modern scientific research has revealed that ginger possesses numerous therapeutic properties including antioxidant effects and may support a healthy inflammation response.
Ginger has been well researched and many of its traditional uses confirmed. It is well known to support the body through motion sickness, nausea, and indigestion. It is a warming remedy, ideal for supporting healthy circulation thereby perhaps supporting healthy blood pressure levels and possibly keeping the blood thin in higher doses. According to Stephen Buhner, the author of the book “Herbal Antivirals”, ginger may possess anti-viral effects thereby supporting a healthy immune system response. Ginger may support a healthy inflammation response, consequently, there has been much recent interest in its use for joint problems. If a person has exercised too much or suffers from arthritis or rheumatism, ginger has been traditionally used to possibly put out the fire, so to speak. Due to its ability to probably support healthy circulation, ginger is thought to likely improve the complexion. It may conceivably reduce nervousness, ease tendonitis, and help sore throats return to normal. Studies demonstrate that ginger may also support healthy lipid levels.
This stimulating herb is warming to the system. In her book ’10 Essential Herbs’ author Lalitha Thomas describes the properties: “The major active ingredients in ginger are terpenes (quite similar to the chemical action of turpentine) and an oleo-resin called ginger oil. These two, and other active ingredients in ginger provide support for healthy circulation.
Some possible health benefits and traditional uses of our Raw Organic Ginger Root Powder may include:
Micronutrients of Ginger root include:
Our Goji Berry Extract Powder is a 50% extract (8:1 ratio) meaning each serving contains a 50% concentration of the polysaccharides.
For thousands of years, the Goji berry (Lycium Barbarum) has been revered for its staggering array of health benefits and has been used to possibly do the following: reduce the craving for sugar, strengthen the immune system, increase longevity and protect from premature aging, fortify the liver, build strong blood and promote cardiovascular health, support eye health and improve vision, maintain healthy blood pressure and blood sugar, stimulate secretion of human growth hormone, strengthen muscles and bones, support normal kidney function, improve fertility, aid sexual function and help reduce obesity.
Modern science has shown that this bright red berry not only contains extremely high levels of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals but also contains many unique phytonutrients, polysaccharides and complex compounds that scientists are just beginning to understand. Our Goji Berry extract powder contains a whopping 50% polysaccharides.
The Goji Berry, a relative of tomato and natural source of lycopene, has also been called the world’s most powerful anti-aging food. It is one of the highest rated foods on the ORAC scale (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) only rivaled by the Acai berry. The ORAC scale is a test developed by USDA researchers out of Tufts University in Boston that measures the antioxidant level in foods. Goji Berries possesses an unmatched ability to absorb injurious, free radicals that attack the body and contribute to the aging process and many diseases. Today, our bodies are constantly being bombarded by free radicals from the air we breathe, the water we drink, the pesticides on our fruits and vegetables, the chemicals we clean with, the preservatives in our processed food and on and on. Eating foods high in antioxidants is one way we can help our bodies combat these free radicals and the damage they cause.
Goji berries contain 18 amino acids; including the 8 essential ones, they are a superb source of vitamin A and offer more beta carotene than carrots, a rich source of vitamin C; having 500 times more vitamin C per ounce than oranges. Goji berries also contain 21 trace minerals including germanium; a substance rarely found in foods, vitamins B1, B2, B6, and vitamin. The raw Goji berry is a nutritionally dense food and an excellent source of protein too.
Goji Berries have a long history of use for eye problems, skin rashes, psoriasis, allergies, insomnia, liver health and balancing blood sugar.
Some possible traditional uses of Goji Berry Extract Powder may include:
Our Organic, Non-GMO Kale is a dark green, leafy vegetable that is part of the cabbage family. In addition to dark green, kale is available in a variety of other colors such as purple, white, and even pink.
Like other dark green leafy vegetables, kale is a natural source of calcium, iron, beta carotene, and vitamin C. Kale is part of the cruciferous group of vegetables; along with cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and others; which have been studied for their health promoting properties. Kale is also a good source of dietary fiber and a natural source of vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), vitamin K, and manganese. It is also a source of copper, tryptophan, vitamin B6, potassium, magnesium, vitamin E, vitamin B2, protein, vitamin B1, folate, phosphorus, and vitamin B3. Also worth noting in kale’s nutritional profile is its vitamin K content. Kale contains nearly twice the amount of vitamin K as most of its fellow cruciferous vegetables.
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Kale Powder may include:
Constituents of Kale include:
Sea kelp (laminaria), the most prolific sea plant on America’s shores, contains algin, carrageenan, iodine, potassium, bromine, mucopolysaccharides, mannitol, alginic acid, kainic acid, laminine, histamine, zeaxanthin, protein, vitamins A, B, E, D, K, C, and minerals. Kelp proteins are comparable in quality to animal proteins. Kelp contains sodium alginate (algin), an element that may support a healthy detoxification response. Algin, carrageenan, and agar are kelp gels that may rejuvenate gastrointestinal health and support digestion. Its natural iodine may support healthy thyroid function and lymph system. It is a demulcent that supports the body’s ability to possibly fight viral invaders.
Kelp, a natural source of minerals in the vegetable kingdom, contains calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, iron, iodine and sodium. Organic raw kelp is a brown seaweed and a natural source of Iodine / Potassium Iodide (KI). Iodine is a chemical element essential for supporting thyroid health as the production of thyroid hormones regulate growth and metabolism. Diets deficient in iodine may increase the risk of retarded brain development in children (cretinism), mental slowness, high cholesterol, lethargy, fatigue, depression, weight gain, and goiter. The natural Potassium Iodide (KI) / Iodine from Sea Kelp / Rockweed is absorbed by your body more slowly and safely than chemical or synthetic iodine. Furthermore, Kelp / Rockweed helps support an alkaline atmosphere within the body and may support a healthy immune system response.
Iodine / Potassium Iodide (KI), administered orally immediately after extreme environmental exposure, may be used to support a balanced thyroid. However, Potassium Iodide (KI) will only be effective if the exposure contains radioactive iodine.
Raw organic Kelp is also excellent for supporting a healthy detoxification response due to its naturally high levels of the polysaccharide, alginic acid. Scientific researchers, including a team led by Dr. Tanaka at McGill University, have demonstrated that alginic acid binds with heavy metals found in the intestines; renders them indigestible; and causes them to be eliminated. So heavy metals such as barium, cadmium, lead, mercury, zinc, and even radioactive strontium will not be absorbed by the body when alginic acid is present. What’s more, Dr. Tanaka’s research has shown that the alginic acid in sea vegetables actually helps bind and draw out any similar toxins that are already stored in our bodies, thus “lowering the body’s burden.”
Doctors Seibin and Teruko Arasaki, Japanese scientists who have published several books about sea vegetables, also report this cleansing property of alginic acid in their book “Vegetables From the Sea.” They conclude, “Heavy metals taken into the human body are rendered insoluble by alginic acid in the intestines and cannot, therefore, be absorbed into body tissues.”
Some possible health benefits and traditional uses of Raw Organic Kelp Powder may include:
Black Maca (Lepidium meyenii) grows exclusively between 13,000 and 15,000 feet above sea level in the Peruvian central Andes. Discovered over 2000 years ago maca does not crop up anywhere else on the planet. Black Maca Root is a close relatives are radish and turnip. Black Maca Root is used as food and is eaten baked, dried, in a liquid form, or mixed in with other foods and beverages. Maca Root varies in color from white to black with about 13 known shades, but the three commonly recognized groups are black maca, red maca and yellow maca (sometimes referred to as gold maca).
The hypocotyls of this plant are traditionally used in the Andean region for their supposed enhancing properties. The hypocotyls have different colors. Of these, black maca root has the strongest supportive effects on male stamina as reported by PubMed.gov in a study done by J. Nieto and colleagues that was published in the October 2006 issue of “Andrologia. “Black Maca Root was shown to improve stamina in just one day after using the herb. During this study, lab rats were given 2 grams of black maca root for 12 days, and stamina levels were tested every couple days. The results showed an increase in stamina levels just one day after the introduction of the herb with the stamina levels remaining higher over the entire 12 days.
Black Maca contains many amino acids including all the essential and many non-essential amino acids. Maca root also has high concentrations of B vitamins. Black Maca has incredible mineral richness, most notably with high levels of calcium (but also magnesium, phosphorous, etc.). Minerals commonly need other minerals in order to be absorbed well in the body. In addition, maca has a rare chemical that allows for a tremendous increase in calcium absorption across the board. Not to mention numerous vitamins, fatty acids, and antioxidants.
Maca is an adaptogen, meaning it works with the body to support a healthy stress response. Black Maca may support healthy blood pressure levels. Black Maca has also been shown to nourish the endocrine system.In the Andes, maca is also used as a general tonic for overall well-being. Because maca feeds the life-force, many Andeans drink maca in the morning. Though it is not a stimulant, the effect is a natural wake up call to the entire body.
Black Maca generates core energy in the body and mind without the stimulant effects from caffeine. Black Maca Root is invigorating and uplifting through a powerful and distinct nutritional profile. In one study rats were given black maca root to see how quickly they would reach maximum fatigue while swimming. Rats that were given no maca reached fatigue in 10 – 15 minutes while the rats that ate black maca root reached fatigue in 100 – 120 minutes.
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Black Maca Root Powder may include:
One of the world’s most amazing superfruits is mangosteen, sometimes called the “the Queen of Fruits.” Our raw Mangosteen powder is loaded with powerful antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and possible antibiotic compounds. Scientific research shows that Mangosteen contains a class of naturally occurring polyphenol compounds known as xanthones. These xanthones are found in the ripe dark purple rind (called pericarp) of the fruit. The rind of partially ripe Mangosteen fruit yields a polyhydroxy-xanthone derivative termed mangostin, also beta-mangostin. Fully ripe fruits contains the xanthones gartanin, beta-disoxygartanin and normangostin.
According to research reported in professional journals such as Free Radical Research and the Journal of Pharmacology, these amazing Xanthones may have a remarkably beneficial effect on cardiovascular health. They also have properties which help to heal cells damaged by free radicals, slow aging and ward off degenerative diseases and physical and mental deterioration. Xanthones also demonstrate the most powerful antioxidative properties found in nature as well as possibly being a natural antibiotic, antiviral and anti-inflammatory substance.
For hundreds of years the people of Southeast Asia have traditionally used the Mangosteen, especially the rind (called the pericarp) to possibly ward off and treat infections, reduce pain, control fevers and boost weakened immune systems. The pericarp can also be made into an ointment and applied to eczema and other skin disorders. Many of the other health benefits of xanthones from the Mangosteen can be expressed in terms of how they act against various ailments.
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Mangosteen Fruit Powder may include:
Our whole fruit Raw Organic Mangosteen Powder is non-GMO and made from both the fruit and the pericarp so it provides all the benefits this amazing fruit has to offer. Our Mangosteen powder has an incredible 1780 ORAC score per gram!
Moringa Oleifera (Moringa) is the most common type among 13 hearty tropical or arid weather species growing naturally in India and South Africa. One of the fastest growing biomasses on earth, if not pruned, the tree will grow as fast as a foot per month. The leaves of the Moringa were identified by the World Vegetable Center in Taiwan as the vegetable with the highest nutritional content among 120 types of food species studied.
Leaves can be harvested every 30-45 days throughout the year, solely providing all the amino acids and omega fats necessary for life. Lauded since Ayurvedic times for its supportive properties, this medicinal plant is packed with phytonutrients that may support healthy detoxification; a healthy inflammatory response and may support healthy blood pressure levels already within normal range.
Moringa oleifera is a small size tree with approximately 5 to 10 m height. It is cultivated all over the world due to its multiple utilities. Every part of Moringa is used for certain nutritional and/or medicinal propose. Containing over 90 nutrients and 46 antioxidants, non-GMO Moringa (Moringa Oleifera) is one of nature’s most nutritious foods. Ideal for helping our bodies maintain optimum health and balance. Because moringa leaf powder does not spoil, this makes an excellent long-term survival food.
Moringa leaves are highly nutritious and are rich in vitamins D, K, A, C, B6, Manganese, Magnesium, Lysine, Riboflavin, Calcium, Thiamin, Potassium, Iron, Protein and Niacin. Ounce for ounce, Moringa contains seven times the Vitamin C found in oranges, four times the beta carotene of carrots, three times the iron of spinach, four times as much calcium as milk, three times the potassium of bananas and more fiber than oats. Moringa also contains all 8 essential amino acids and is rich in flavonoids, including Quercetin, Kaempferol, Beta-Sitosterol, Caffeoylquinic acid, and Zeatin.
Moringa is referred to as the “Miracle Tree” because all parts of the plant are edible and healthy, including the leaves, moringa oil, and the moringa seeds may provide health benefits. The moringa plant and leaves can also thrive in tough climates and poor soil. Its combination of high nutrition, sustainability and hardiness have caused moringa to be promoted widely in Africa to help fight hunger and malnutrition.
Some possible traditional uses and possible health benefits of Raw Organic Moringa Leaf Powder may include:
Organic raw Noni fruit is a potent source antioxidants, polysaccharides, vitamins and minerals that may support a healthy immune response. Our raw whole fruit organic Noni powder may help strengthen the digestive system and increase energy and vitality. Traditional healers have used Tahitian Noni fruit (Morinda citrifolia) for many health conditions for thousands of years. In the late 20th century, western science confirmed what millions of people have already known. The Noni fruit is known as the “Queen of Health Plants” due to its wide range of applications. Noni nourishes the human body which may increase the production of T-cells (white blood cells) in the immune system. T-cells play a pivotal role supporting good health. Noni fruit, an immunomodulatory polysaccharide-rich substance (Noni-ppt) from the Noni fruit has been found to possibly possess both prophylactic and therapeutic properties in supporting healthy and normal cellular tissue growth. Further scientific studies on Noni’s abilities to support healthy and normal cellular tissue growth are being conducted. Noni fruit is also being used traditionally for antibacterial and antiseptic purposes and contains 17 of the 20 known amino acids, including all 9 essential amino acids.
Due to its nourishing qualities, Raw Certified Organic Noni Fruit may be excellent for digestion, infection, depression, thyroid function, arthritis, fatigue, pain, addictions, headaches, and muscular degeneration. Woman’s World magazine, May 9, 2000, quotes Dr. Neil Soloman, who has studied the effects of Noni on more than 12,000 people. He has found that it is a natural pain killer and anti-inflammatory that is 75% as strong as morphine, yet non-addictive and side effect free. Dr. Soloman’s research shows that Noni is effective for everything from migraines to osteoarthritis to fibromyalgia. The Woman’s World article sites additional research which details Noni’s ability to stimulate the immune system and open blood vessels so blood can move through them more easily. These studies studies also suggest that Noni could help at least 40% of cancer patients beat their disease. Dr. A. Hirazumi, researcher at the University of Hawaii, School of Medicine, found that Noni significantly raised the T-cell count in the body. T-cells are like tiny soldiers of the immune system, helping to keep out invaders and toxins.
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Noni Fruit Powder may include:
Raw Green Papaya is an incredibly healthy fruit naturally packed with powerful vitamins, enzymes and phytonutrients. Raw Green papaya contains vital nutrients, including potassium, magnesium and vitamins A, C, E and B. The benefits of green papaya are not just limited to its own nutrition. Green papaya has a synergistic effect when combined with other nutrient dense foods as it improves the digestion and uptake of nutrients. Raising enzyme levels and improving assimilation within the body also helps fortify the body’s natural immune response.
Green papaya contains two of the most powerful plant proteolytic enzymes: papain and chymopapain. These enzymes are effective at breaking down proteins, fats and carbs as well as aiding healthy digestion. The enzyme papain can only be found in the papaya fruit and is superior to the pepsin produced by our own stomachs. Unlike our natural pepsin which is only activated when in an acidic environment, the papain found in the Green Papaya can digest protein in any pH stomach environment; alkaline, acid or neutral pH. Papain converts proteins into essential amino acids such as arginine, which cannot be produced by the body. These enzymes are also helpful in digesting carbohydrates and fats so Green Papaya is most beneficial to people with enzyme deficiencies or those with a low stomach acid output. The two enzymes found in this fruit work together to soothe and calm the digestive system and can also aid those with ulcers.
Green papaya can be useful for most gastrointestinal ailments; from easing indigestion to enhancing your body’s defense of colon cancer. The enzyme carpaine present in the green papaya possesses an antiseptic quality that helps prevent an overgrowth of undesirable intestinal bacteria and parasites while creating a well balanced environment for beneficial intestinal flora to flourish. It is extremely beneficial to clean the dead tissue and waste matter from the intestinal walls and is even known to dissolve pus and mucus. Carpaine in green papaya may also be helpful in alleviating hardening of the arteries by assisting to dissolve injured or hardened tissue.
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Green Papaya Powder may include:
One of the oldest cultivated fruits, non-GMO pomegranates first grew in ancient Persia and the health benefits of pomegranate were recognized even then. The Romans gave it its name — “pomegranate” literally means “seed apple” in Latin — and planted the sturdy seedlings throughout their empire. Spain loved pomegranates so, that they named the city of Granada after them according to some historians. The fruit also made its way eastward to India, where its juice was considered a health elixir that cured any number of ills. Pomegranates are the size of large oranges, with reddish-pink leathery skin protecting a white membrane. Attached to this membrane are small seed sacs surrounded by a red pulp. Recent studies reveal that eating pomegranate fruit can contribute immensely to good health.
Raw Pomegranate is mostly known for its rich content of antioxidants such as soluble polyphenols, tannins and anthocyanins which scavenge free radicals. Antioxidants are now considered essential for good health as they may protect the body from molecules which may cause premature aging and help prevent DNA damage that can lead to a number of serious health conditions. Pomegranate also contains a significant amount of good sodium, calcium, vitamin C, niacin, thiamin and riboflavin. Preliminary evidence suggests that pomegranate is very heart healthy and may support overall cardiovascular health.
Non-GMO Pomegranates are jam packed with vitamins that are important to daily bodily functions, but the most important health benefits of pomegranates are antioxidants. Pomegranates contain three times as many antioxidants as red wine and green tea.
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Pomegranate Juice Powder may include:
Known as the “Holy Fruit of the Himalayas,” Sea Buckthorn Fruit has been cherished by native Tibetans for centuries for its incredible nutritive qualities. Sea buckthorn grows high in the Himalayan region and has been used in Asia over the centuries as an herbal medicine to relieve cough, aid digestion, invigorate blood circulation, and alleviate pain.
Organic Sea Buckthorn Fruit is a source powerful antioxidants and rare fatty acids, thanks to its very high vitamin C, carotenoid, and phenolic content. As a result of the powerful antioxidant levels, its ability to protect against aging of the skin and the effects of environmental pollution has been noted. The beneficial uses of this berry were recognized by ancient civilizations. The Greeks were the first to discover the benefits of the Sea Buckthorn berries 1,200 years ago. The berries are mentioned in Chinese and Tibetan medical texts from around 1,000 years ago.
Sea Buckthorn’s berries contain more than 100 different kinds of nutrients and bioactive substances including vitamins, fatty acids and free amino acids. Recent scientific studies indicate that sea buckthorn supports the immune system and may help protect the liver.
Today, over one hundred and twenty specific studies on sea buckthorn and countless studies on the biological properties found in the plant have shown that this small berry promotes good health. Sea buckthorn has been called the superfruit, and given its nutritional profile, it is no wonder. This fruit has a high abundance of some of the rarest and most powerful antioxidants in the world. Not only that, but it is the only plant known to contain essential fatty acids 3, 6, 7, and 9.
Raw Organic Sea Buckthorn Berries contains more than 190 biologically active compounds. Included in these 190 nutrients are the following:
Some possible benefits of our Organic Raw Sea Buckthorn Fruit Juice Powder may include:
Aside from being a natural source of protein, shiitake mushrooms supply niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, potassium and iron, and are a natural source of vitamins A, B, and C.
When used in their sun-dried form they provide a valuable dose of Vitamin D, found in very few foods. They contain more than 50 different enzymes, including pepsin that supports healthy digestion and asparaginase, which is a substance that may support a healthy immune response.
Recent studies have traced shiitakes’ legendary benefits to an active compound contained in these mushrooms called lentinan. Among lentinan, supportive benefits are its ability to support a healthy immune system response in order to strengthen the body’s ability to fight infection and disease.
A large number of animal studies conducted over the last ten years have shown that another active component in shiitake mushrooms called eritadenine may support healthy lipid levels. Even when lab animals are given dietary protein rich in methionine (an amino acid researchers have found causes an increase in cholesterol formation), eritadenine still lowers plasma cholesterol levels in a dose-dependent manner. In other words, the more eritadenine given, the better the support for healthy lipid levels are.
L-ergothioneine, a powerful antioxidant, has been discovered in mushrooms, thanks to a new analytical method capable of identifying this antioxidant in plant material. In research presented at the 2005 American Chemical Society meeting in Washington, D.C., an American research team revealed that mushrooms contain higher concentrations L-ergothioneine than either of the two dietary sources previously believed to contain the most: chicken liver and wheat germ.
Thrombosis, the formation of a blood clot that inhibits blood-flow, has been shown to be significantly reduced by individuals consuming shiitake mushroom oil. The Department of Agricultural and Biological Chemistry at Nihon University in Japan has demonstrated that the levels of lenthionine found in shiitake mushrooms may possibly inhibit platelet aggregation.
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Shiitake Mushroom Powder may include:
Spinach contains a plethora of nutritional and medicinal properties which help to strengthen our immune system, boost energy levels, and provide our bodies with necessary vitamins and minerals. Spinach is a good source of Lutein, Protein, Iron, Fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Sodium, Manganese, Calcium, Phosphorus, Sodium, Beta-carotene, Potassium, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Carotenoids, Niacin, Chlorophyll, Antioxidants, Phytochemicals, Lipoic acid, and folate (also known as vitamin B9 and natural folic acid).
The A and C vitamins in spinach plus the fiber, folate, magnesium and other nutrients show promise against certain cancers, especially colon, lung and breast cancers. Folate also lowers the blood levels of homocysteine, a protein that damages arteries. So spinach also helps protect against heart disease. The flavonoids in spinach help protect against age related memory loss.
Spinach’s secret weapon, lutein, makes it one of the best foods in the world to combat cataracts, as well as age related macular degeneration is the leading cause of preventable blindness in the elderly. Spinach is truly a wonderful food; one which should not be overlooked.
Some possible benefits of our raw organic Spinach powder may include:
Organic Raw Spirulina is a type of live blue-green algae found in most lakes and ponds. It has been consumed for thousands of years by Mexican (Aztecs, Mayans), African, and Asian people. Raw Spirulina powder is considered a complete protein because well over half of it consists of amino acids — the building blocks of protein. It is also a source of other nutrients including B complex vitamins, beta-carotene, vitamin E, carotenoids, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium and gamma linolenic acid (an essential fatty acid). Imagine a vegetable with more protein than soy, more Vitamin A than carrots, more iron than beef, profound source of protective phytochemicals, naturally low in fat, source of the essential fatty acid GLA and is easy to digest.
Spirulina algae promotes health in many ways. It may protect from oxidative stress and may strongly support a healthy immune system response and a healthy inflammatory response. Scientific studies suggest it may be especially good for the brain, heart, immune system and more. Spirulina powder has been used since ancient times as a source of nutrients.
Spirulina likes to grow in hot and alkaline environments which helps ensure its hygienic status, as no other organisms can survive to pollute the waters in which this algae thrives. Spirulina is in fact one of the cleanest, most naturally sterile foods found in nature. Its adaptation to heat also assures that Spirulina retains its nutritional value when subjected to higher temperatures during processing and shelf storage, unlike many plant foods that rapidly deteriorate at high temperatures. Spirulina algae is also unusual among algae because it is a “nuclear plant” meaning it is on the developmental cusp between plants and animals. It is considered somewhat above plants because it does not have the hard cellulose membranes characteristic of plant cells, nor does it have a well-defined nucleus. This allows it to be highly digestible in comparison with other algae such as chlorella.
Organic raw Spirulina is a type of live blue-green algae and a natural source of small quantities of Iodine / Potassium iodide (KI). Iodine is a chemical element essential for the production of thyroid hormones that supports growth and metabolism. The natural Potassium iodide (KI) / Iodine from Spirulina is absorbed by your body more slowly and safely than chemical or synthetic iodine. Further Spirulina helps promote an alkaline pH balance within the body and also supports a healthy immune system response.
Iodine / Potassium iodide (KI), administered orally immediately after exposure to certain types of radiation, may be used to protect the thyroid from ingested radioactive iodine. But Potassium iodide (KI) would only be effective if the radiation contains radioactive iodine.
Nutritional statistics of raw organic Spirulina:
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Spirulina Powder may include:
Stevia is a natural and non-caloric sweetener and sugar substitute extracted from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana. The active compounds of stevia are steviol glycosides, which have up to 150 times the sweetness of sugar and have a negligible effect on blood glucose…making stevia and ideal natural non-caloic sweetener.
Stevia is a natural herb native to Asia and South America. It is a small shrub like perennial plant which belongs to sunflower (Asteraceae) family. Stevia has been in wide use in South America, Japan, and many other parts of the world.
Our non-GMO Pure White Stevia Extract Powder that has been standardized to contain at least 90% steviosides. This is a 100% natural herbal extract with no other ingredients or fillers.
The red tomato is the fruit of the plant Lycopersicon esculentum. Botanically speaking, tomato is not only a fruit, but also a berry since it is formed from a single ovary. Tomatoes are originally native to the western side of South America, in the region occupied by Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, and the western half of Bolivia.
In terms of conventional antioxidants, organic tomatoes provide an excellent amount of vitamin C and beta-carotene; a very good amount of the mineral manganese; and a good amount of vitamin E. In terms of phytonutrients, tomatoes are basically off the chart. While most often associated with lycopene (a carotenoid phytonutrient widely recognized for its antioxidant properties), tomatoes provide a unique variety of phytonutrients. Included are additional carotenoids (including beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin); saponins (including alpha-tomatine); flavonoids (including naringenin, chalconaringenin, rutin, kaempferol, and quercetin); hydroxycinnamic acids (including caffeic, ferulic, and coumaric acid); glycosides (including esculeoside A); and fatty acid derivatives (including 9-oxo-octadecadienoic acid).
Organic tomatoes are also an excellent source of free radical-scavenging vitamin C and vitamin A as well as bone-healthy vitamin K. They are a very good source of enzyme-promoting molybdenum; heart-healthy potassium, vitamin B6, folate, and dietary fiber; blood sugar-balancing manganese. In addition, tomatoes are a good source of heart-healthy magnesium, niacin, and vitamin E; energy-producing iron, vitamin B1, and phosphorus; muscle-building protein, and bone-healthy copper.
Bone health is another area of growing interest in tomato research. Interestingly, the connection of tomato intake to bone health involves the rich supply of antioxidant in tomatoes. We don’t always think about antioxidant protection as being important for bone health, but it is; and tomato lycopene (and other tomato antioxidants) may have a special role to play in this area.
Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Tomato Powder may include:
Turmeric (non-GMO) is one of nature’s most powerful healers, with the active ingredient being curcumin. Popularly used in Indian cuisine, turmeric root has been shown to have a broad number of possible nourishing effects. Turmeric has been used for over 2500 years in India, where it was most likely first used as a dye.
Turmeric is a nutritional powerhouse
The medicinal properties of this spice have been slowly revealing themselves over the centuries. Recent research has revealed that turmeric is a natural wonder, proving beneficial for many different health conditions.
Among some of the most interesting turmeric health benefits and recent scientific findings:
Brain nourishment:The 2003 study in Italy as published in the Italian Journal of Biochemistry showed that Turmeric may support a healthy brain and nervous system. Another study conducted at UCLA and published in the December 2004 issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry, which has been confirmed by further research published online April 20, 2006, in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, provides further insight as to how Turmeric provides multiple areas of protection against the mechanisms that may support conditions related to brain health. This research was so profoundly exciting to researchers that human clinical trials to further investigate Turmeric’s potential will soon be underway.
May support a healthy inflammation response:Turmeric’s ability to support a healthy inflammation response been shown to be comparable to the potent drugs hydrocortisone and phenylbutazone as well as over-the-counter anti-inflammatory agents such as Motrin. And unlike lab-produced pharmaceutical drugs, Turmeric has been shown to produce no toxicity, nor the kinds of stomach problems that commonly occur with pharmaceuticals with this same purpose.
Rheumatoid Arthritis: Many clinical studies have shown that the antioxidant properties of Turmeric may support the body’s ability to fight the free radicals responsible for joint health issues. Turmeric’s combination of antioxidant and supporting a healthy inflammation response effect explains why many people with joint health issues possibly find relief when they use the spice regularly, and in a recent study of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, Turmeric was compared to phenylbutazone and produced comparable improvements in shortened duration of a variety of issues.
Cystic Fibrosis: Curcumin, the major constituent of turmeric that gives the spice its yellow color, may support healthy gene expression, as suggested by an animal study published in the April 2004 issue of Science. Cystic fibrosis, a fatal disease that attacks the lungs with thick mucus, causing life-threatening infections, and afflicts about 30,000 American children and young adults, who rarely survive beyond 30 years of age.
Cellular mutation Prevention:Turmeric’s antioxidant effects help protect the colon cells from free radicals that can damage cellular DNA — a significant benefit particularly in the colon where cell turnover is quite rapid. By improving liver function, it also helps the body to destroy mutated cells so that they cannot spread through the body and cause more harm. Even more interesting, when Turmeric was combined with the vegetable Cauliflower, the protection against cell mutation in the colon was even more pronounced, leading researchers to believe the combination of cruciferous vegetables and curcumin could be an “effective therapy not only to prevent prostate problems but to inhibit the spread of established prostate problems”. Time to start eating cauliflower with turmeric!
May support a healthy liver: recent studies have shown that Turmeric increases the detoxification enzymes in the liver, so much so that one set of researchers commented, “Turmeric used widely as a spice would probably mitigate the effects of several dietary carcinogens”. In our polluted, often carcinogenic laden environment, diet, and lifestyles these days, this is very beneficial.
From supporting a healthy cardiovascular system to serving as a great source of vitamin B6 to further overall anti-oxidization, detoxification and blood-brain benefits, the health benefits of Turmeric continue to be revealed and discovered by new scientific studies each year.
Our raw organic Wheatgrass Powder is an easy way to enjoy all the wonderful benefits of this incredible green food.
Organic raw wheatgrass powder is a powerful detoxifier of the liver, blood, and gastrointestinal tract while chemically neutralizing toxins. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can help protect the body from free radicals and carcinogens. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood and increasing red blood-cell count. It may also aid in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body. Recent studies suggest that wheatgrass has a powerful ability to help fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs.
Wheatgrass is rich in protein and includes all eight of the essential amino acids, as well as 13 of the remaining 16 non essential amino acids. Besides containing most vitamins, minerals and an excellent source of living chlorophyll, organic wheatgrass has three other special components which make it particularly valuable:
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) – The aging process has been directly linked to decreasing amounts of SOD in our system. Increased amounts of SOD cause our body to repair itself quicker. Additionally SOD acts as an anti-inflammatory and cancer fighting enzyme.
P4D1 Enzyme – P4D1 has been found to do two things in the human body. It is the first known substance to actually stimulate repair of DNA molecules. It is possible that disease cells can be repaired with P4D1 so that when they reproduce they will actually produce good cells. P4D1 has also been shown in laboratory tests to eat the protein sheath off a cancer cell so that the white blood cells can attack and destroy them.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) – GAGs form an important component in the synovial fluid lubricant in body joints, and chondroitins which can be found in connective tissues, cartilage and tendons.
Some possible benefits of our raw organic Wheatgrass Powder may include:
Health isn’t found in a pill! Only whole food can revitalize the whole you. See how synthetic vitamin pills stack up against the Garden in My Glass real-food formulation.
Does the pill, powder, or packet provide you the balanced levels of vitamins & minerals found in nature (versus unnatural & unsafe mega-doses of synthetic vitamins & minerals)?
Are the synergistic enzymes, co-factors, and therapeutic compounds found in whole foods still intact?
Is the pill, powder, or packet 100% natural, nutrient dense food and therefore safe and effective for anyone of any age in your family?
Are the nutrients completely absorbed by your body (versus ending up in your toilet as strange “glowing” urine)?
Can you and your family enjoy it anywhere in less than 30 seconds?
Enjoy a cup of the best fruits and veggies in the world for less than a cup of Starbucks coffee!
