Paleo - Berry Choc Mix Cereal - Organic - Loving Earth - 320g

  • Description
  • More Details

* SOURCE OF PROTEIN
* CANE SUGAR FREE
* ENERGISING SNACK
* WITH LOVING EARTH CHOCOLATE

This activated premium raw wholefood blend is packed with superfoods, berries, activated nuts and seeds, caramelised coconut chips and chunks of our dark chocolate.

Loving Earth have created this cheeky (but good-for-you) paleo treat using premium, raw, wholefood ingredients like activated sunflower seeds Raw Cacao Nibs, Activated Pumpkin Seeds, currants, cashews, cranberries, Brazil Nuts, caramelised coconut and Loving Earth Dark Coconut Mylk Chocolate.

What is paleo?
Paleo takes its inspiration from the diet of our ancestors, who ate a high healthy fat, low carbohydrate diet, with sufficient protein. This way of eating supports your body to burn fat for energy.

What is activation?
Most cereals are puffed or toasted under extreme heat or pressure, which destroys their nutrients. We prefer to make the most of our ingredients, so we activate them. Activation is the same as sprouting – soaking the seeds in filtered water to release the enzyme inhibitors, bringing the seeds to life. Enzyme inhibitors exist to keep the seed dormant as it waits for the right conditions to germinate. This means they also prevent the nutrients in the seed from being released into your body when you eat it. Activating makes it easier for the body to absorb the nutrients.

Ingredients
Organic caramelised coconut chips (Organic Coconut, Organic Coconut Nectar), organic activated sunflower seeds, Organic Raw Cacao Nibs (10%), Organic Activated Pumpkin Seeds, organic currants (10%), Organic Activated Cahsews, Dark Coconut Mylk Chocolate (7%) (Organic Raw Cacao Nibs, Organic Evaporated Coconut Nectar, Organic Coconut, Organic Virgin Cacao Butter), organic cranberries (5%) (apple juice sweetened), Organic Activated Brazil Nuts
*Made in Australia from local and imported ingredients

Enjoy any time of the day!

For breakfast - enjoy with almond mylk or coconut yogurt topped with your favourite fruit.

As a snack - get re-energised with this dense, nutrient packed trail mix.

Buckinis - Caramelised Clusters - Loving Earth - Organic - 400g

  • Description

NEW!

Caramelised Buckinis are made from raw activated buckwheat and coated in a delicious selection of superfoods such as Maca and Mesquite. Ideal for breakfast, sprinkled on smoothies or as part of desserts.

CANE SUGAR FREE
SOURCE OF PROTEIN
WITH MACA & MESQUITE
ENJOY HOT OR COLD

What is it?
Our Caramelised Buckinis are a wholefood mix that combines raw activated buckwheat with traditional superfoods such as Maca and Mesquite.

What are Buckinis you ask? We invented the name to describe our activated buckwheat. Buckinis are grain-free, gluten-free, crunchy bundles of goodness that don’t go soggy in cold milk. And they’re not wheat, in fact they’re not even a grain - they’re a protein-packed seed.

Why do we activate our buckwheat? Well, most cereals are puffed or toasted under extreme heat or pressure, which destroys their nutrients. We prefer to make the most of our ingredients, so we activate them. Activation is the same as sprouting – soaking the seeds in filtered water to release the enzyme inhibitors, bringing the seeds to life. Enzyme inhibitors exist to keep the seed dormant as it waits for the right conditions to germinate. This means they also prevent the nutrients in the seed from being released into your body when you eat it. Activating makes it easier for the body to absorb the nutrients.

How to use:
Enjoy your Buckinis all year round!
In winter - add 1/2 cup Buckinis to 3/4 cup of your favourite milk and gently heat on the stove top.
In summer - add your favourite milk or yoghurt and pile on the seasonal fresh fruit.
Great as a topper for desserts, ice-creams and smoothies.

Ingredients:
Organic Activated Buckwheat, Organic Agave Syrup, Organic Mesquite, Cinnamon, Organic Maca Powder, Pink Lake Salt

Cloves - Raw Planet - Organic

  • Description
  • More Details
NEW!

Intensely aromatic and richly flavoured, cloves have been widely used in the spice world since ancient times. Clove is a spice which suits both sweet and savoury dishes. Cloves contain significant amounts of an active component called eugenol which acts as an anti-inflammatory substance. Cloves also contain a variety of flavonoids, including kaempferol and rhamnetin, which contribute to clove's anti-inflammatory & antioxidant properties. Cloves are an excellent source of manganese, vitamin K, dietary fiber, iron, magnesium, and calcium.

Like other spices, cloves are available throughout the year. They are renowned for providing their uniquely warm, sweet and aromatic taste to ginger bread and pumpkin pie, but they can also make a wonderful addition to split pea and bean soups.



Cloves are the unopened pink flower buds of the evergreen clove tree. The buds are picked by hand when they are pink and dried until they turn brown in colour. Cloves are about 1/2-inch long and 1/4-inch in diameter and with their tapered stem, they resemble tiny nails. In fact, their English name is actually derived from the Latin word clavus, which means nail. Although cloves have a very hard exterior, their flesh features an oily compound that is essential to their nutritional and flavour profile.



Health Benefits

Clove contains significant amounts of an active component called eugenol, which has made it the subject of numerous health studies, including studies on the prevention of toxicity from environmental pollutants like carbon tetrachloride, digestive tract cancers, and joint inflammation. In the United States, eugenol extracts from clove have often been used in dentistry in conjunction with root canal therapy, temporary fillings, and general gum pain, since eugenol and other components of clove (including beta-caryophyllene) combine to make clove a mild anaesthetic as well as an anti-bacterial agent. For these beneficial effects, you'll also find clove oil in some over-the-counter sore throat sprays and mouth washes.

Anti-Inflammatory Activity
Eugenol, the primary component of clove's volatile oils, functions as an anti-inflammatory substance. In animal studies, the addition of clove extract to diets already high in anti-inflammatory components (like cod liver oil, with its high omega-3 fatty acid content) brings significant added benefits, and in some studies, further reduces inflammatory symptoms by another 15-30%. Clove also contains a variety of flavonoids, including kaempferol and rhamnetin, which also contribute to clove's anti-inflammatory (and antioxidant) properties.

A Nutrient-Dense Spice
Like its fellow spices, clove's unique phytonutrient components are accompanied by an incredible variety of traditionally-recognized nutrients. Using our nutrient ranking system, we determined cloves to be an excellent source of manganese, a very good source of vitamin K and dietary fiber, and a good source of iron, magnesium, and calcium.

Tips for Preparing and Cooking
Tips for Cooking with Cloves
Since cloves have a very intense flavour, especially those that have been ground, care should be taken when deciding how much to use in a recipe so as to not overpower the flavours of the other ingredients.

The easiest way to grind whole cloves into a powder is to use a coffee grinder.

How to Enjoy
A Few Quick Serving Ideas:
- Pierce an onion with whole cloves and add to soups, broths or poaching liquids.
- Adding ground cloves and curry powder to healthy sautéed onions, garlic and tofu will give this dish an Indian-inspired zest.
- Impart a warming note to apple cider by adding ground cloves and cinnamon.
- Spice up fruit compote by adding ground cloves.
- Add clove powder, walnuts and raisins to your favourite stuffing recipe.

N
utritional Profile:
Cloves are an excellent source of manganese, vitamin K, dietary fiber, iron, magnesium, and calcium.

Linseed have a pleasant nutty taste and is high in powerful natural cholesterol controllers, high in fiber and a good source of omega 3.

The high Omega-3 content of Flax Seed Oil makes it a popular dietary supplement. Omega-3 and Omega 6 are essential fatty acids (EFAs), which are exactly that – essential for good health! EFAs are important for the proper functioning of the immune system, brain health, wound healing and for insulating nerves. They’re found in every cell in the body but we can’t make them ourselves. They need to be present in our diet, and the modern day diet of convenience and processed foods, often leaves us lacking the EFA’s we need.

Common symptoms of an Omega-3 deficiency are; dry and cracking skin, slow wound healing, high cholesterol and triglycerides levels, digestive disturbances and hormonal problems. Deficiencies in EFAs have been associated with a wide range of degenerative disorders such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes and various allergies. Incorporating ‘cold pressed’ Flax Seed Oil into your diet, is the most effective way to avoid these deficiencies and provide your body with the EFAs required for a healthy lifestyle. Further health benefits of eating Flax Seed Oil are well documented and include relief of allergies, eczema, improved complexion, reduced cholesterol and even controlling Attention Deficit Disorder.

How to use:
Brown & golden linseed have the same nutritional profile.

Linseed can be eaten whole, or sprouted or ground to make their vital nutrients available to the body. Add linseed to oatmeal, yoghurt, bread, biscuits, crackers and other recipes for extra nutrition & a nutty flavour. One tablespoon of ground flax seeds & three tablespoons of water may serve as a replacement for one egg in baking by binding the other ingredients together.

Sorry  - Out of Stock - New season's stock coming in May 2017

Fenugreek is an ancient spice popular in Middle Eastern & African cooking  frequently used in the preparation of pickles, curry powders and pastes. Fenugreek sprouts compliment light meals at any time of the year. The strong bitter taste gives a distinctive flavour to salads, Asian cuisine and many other dishes. Fenugreek sprouts are an excellent source of essential nutrients and contribute to healthy, balanced nutrition.

It helps balance blood sugar levels & contains choline which aids the thinking process. It has also been employed against bronchitis, fevers, sore throats, wounds, swollen glands, skin irritations, diabetes, ulcers & in the treatment of cancer. Fenugreek has been used to promote lactation & as an aphrodisiac, & has also been the focus of several studies concerning the treatment of diabetes.  It also aids in balancing hormone levels, treating PMS & menopause, and its antioxidants slow aging and help prevent disease.

Fenugreek is simple to use and easy to grow and best of all you always have a supply of fresh energy-giving food at hand. There are all sorts of ways you can enjoy sprouts; they are wonderful in salads, they can be easily juiced or if you like added to a smoothie. Better still just eat them by the handful!

While Fenugreek is considered the finest herb for enhancing feminine beauty it also aids in sexual stimulation, balances blood sugar levels and contains choline which aids the thinking process. Fenugreek has been the focus of several studies concerning the treatment of diabetes and the prevention of breast cancer. Its ability to balance hormone levels aids in treating PMS and menopause. Its antioxidants slow aging and help prevent disease.

The plant has also been employed against bronchitis, fevers, sore throats, wounds swollen glands, skin irritations, diabetes, ulcers and in the treatment of cancer. Fenugreek has been used to promote lactation and as an aphrodisiac.


Fenugreek contains an amino acid called 4-hydroxyisoleucine, which appears to increase the body’s production of insulin when blood sugar levels are high. Higher insulin production may decrease the amounts of sugar that stay in the blood for many individuals. In some studies of animals and humans with both diabetes and high cholesterol levels, fenugreek lowered cholesterol levels as well as blood sugar levels.

  • Description

What are activated seeds?
An activated seed is a seed that has been soaked and sprouted to release its enzyme inhibitors.

Why should seeds be activated?
Enzyme inhibitors prevent nuts from sprouting at inappropriate times. This is an evolutionary mechanism that ensures seeds only sprout when environmental conditions will support the growth of young plants. Phytic acid and oxalic acid are examples of enzyme inhibitors, and are found in varying ratios depending on the seed. Of the four seasons, springtime is when we see nature come to life. Environmental conditions support the germination of seeds into seedlings. Rainfall is responsible for deactivating the enzyme inhibitors, which when coupled moderate spring temperatures supports the growth of freshly germinated seedlings into young plants.

These enzyme inhibitors also prevent the seeds from being over eaten by animals in the wild. In humans' regular consumption of seeds with enzyme inhibitors, can result in digestive distress in much the same way gluten does. Constipation, stomach cramps and bloating are examples of some issues people have eating raw, unactivated seeds. This is why seed activation is an important process.

How do we activate our seeds?
An activated seed is essentially a germinated seed. The activation process requires seeds to be soaked in water for a period of 12-24 hours depending on the nut variety. This deactivates the enzyme inhibitors and brings the seed to life. Once our seeds have been soaked, we then dehydrate them at low temperatures (40 degrees) over a 24-hour period. Dehydrated seeds have a similar flavour and texture to roasted seeds or nuts, however are much more nutrient dense and taste much fresher. Activating seeds makes the nutrients more digestible and easier to assimilate, they also taste delicious!

Sunflower seeds make a tasty snack straight from the bag or a great addition to trail mix, stir-fries and salads. They are a good source of selenium, which has cancer fighting properties, and are also a good source of magnesium, copper, antioxidants and Vitamin E.

Our sunflower seeds are dried under 45degrees in our factory

Product of New Zealand

Health Benefits:
Looking for a health-promoting snack? A handful of sunflower seeds will take care of your hunger, while also enhancing your health by supplying significant amounts of vitamin E, magnesium and selenium.

Anti-Inflammatory and Cardiovascular Benefits from Sunflower Seeds' Vitamin E
Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of vitamin E, the body's primary fat-soluble antioxidant. Vitamin E travels throughout the body neutralizing free radicals that would otherwise damage fat-containing structures and molecules, such as cell membranes, brain cells, and cholesterol. By protecting these cellular and molecular components, vitamin E has significant anti-inflammatory effects that result in the reduction of symptoms in asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis, conditions where free radicals and inflammation play a big role. Vitamin E has also been shown to reduce the risk of colon cancer, help decrease the severity and frequency of hot flashes in women going through menopause, and help reduce the development of diabetic complications.

In addition, vitamin E plays an important role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Vitamin E is one of the main antioxidants found in cholesterol particles and helps prevent free radicals from oxidizing cholesterol. Only after it has been oxidized is cholesterol able to adhere to blood vessel walls and initiate the process of atherosclerosis, which can lead to blocked arteries, heart attack, or stroke. Getting plenty of vitamin E can significantly reduce the risk of developing atherosclerosis. In fact, studies show that people who get a good amount of vitamin E are at a much lower risk of dying of a heart attack than people whose dietary intake of vitamin E is marginal or inadequate.

Sunflower Seeds' Phytosterols Lower Cholesterol
Phytosterols are compounds found in plants that have a chemical structure very similar to cholesterol, and when present in the diet in sufficient amounts, are believed to reduce blood levels of cholesterol, enhance the immune response and decrease risk of certain cancers.

Phytosterols beneficial effects are so dramatic that they have been extracted from soybean, corn, and pine tree oil and added to processed foods, such as "butter"-replacement spreads, which are then touted as cholesterol-lowering "foods." But why settle for an imitation "butter" when Mother Nature's nuts and seeds are a naturally rich source of phytosterols—and cardio-protective fiber, minerals and healthy fats as well?

In a study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, researchers published the amounts of phytosterols present in nuts and seeds commonly eaten in the United States.

Sesame seeds had the highest total phytosterol content (400-413 mg per 100 grams), and English walnuts and Brazil nuts the lowest (113 mg/100grams and 95 mg/100 grams). (100 grams is equivalent to 3.5 ounces.) Of the nuts and seeds typically consumed as snack foods, sunflower seeds and pistachios were richest in phytosterols (270-289 mg/100 g), followed by pumpkin seeds (265 mg/100 g).

Calm Your Nerves, Muscles and Blood Vessels with Sunflower Seeds' Magnesium
Sunflower seeds are a good source of magnesium. Numerous studies have demonstrated that magnesium helps reduce the severity of asthma, lower high blood pressure, and prevent migraine headaches, as well as reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Magnesium is also necessary for healthy bones and energy production. About two-thirds of the magnesium in the human body is found in our bones. Some helps give bones their physical structure, while the rest is found on the surface of the bone where it is stored for the body to draw upon as needed.

Magnesium counterbalances calcium, thus helping to regulate nerve and muscle tone. In many nerve cells, magnesium serves as Nature's own calcium channel blocker, preventing calcium from rushing into the nerve cell and activating the nerve. By blocking calcium's entry, magnesium keeps our nerves (and the blood vessels and muscles they ennervate) relaxed. If our diet provides us with too little magnesium, however, calcium can gain free entry, and the nerve cell can become overactivated, sending too many messages and causing excessive contraction. Insufficient magnesium can thus contribute to high blood pressure, muscle spasms (including spasms of the heart muscle or the spasms of the airways symptomatic of asthma), and migraine headaches, as well as muscle cramps, tension, soreness and fatigue.

Improved Detoxification and Cancer Prevention from Sunflower Seeds' Selenium
Sunflower seeds are also a good source of selenium, a trace mineral that is of fundamental importance to human health. Accumulated evidence from prospective studies, intervention trials and studies on animal models of cancer has suggested a strong inverse correlation between selenium intake and cancer incidence. Selenium has been shown to induce DNA repair and synthesis in damaged cells, to inhibit the proliferation of cancer cells, and to induce their apoptosis, the self-destruct sequence the body uses to eliminate worn out or abnormal cells.

In addition, selenium is incorporated at the active site of many proteins, including glutathione peroxidase, which is particularly important for cancer protection. One of the body's most powerful antioxidant enzymes, glutathione peroxidase is used in the liver to detoxify a wide range of potentially harmful molecules. When levels of glutathione peroxidase are too low, these toxic molecules are not disarmed and wreak havoc on any cells with which they come in contact, damaging their cellular DNA and promoting the development of cancer cells. Its selenium richness is another reason that sunflower seeds can make a good snack.

How to Enjoy:

Quinoa - Raw Planet - Organic

  • Description
  • More Details

NEW!

Quinoa has a light, nutty, delicious flavour. While it is usually considered to be a whole grain, it is actually a seed, but can be prepared like whole grains such as rice or barley. A versatile product, quinoa can be substituted for almost any grain in almost any recipe. It  From soups to salads, to bakes, to desserts – quinoa looks and tastes great.

Quinoa could be your favourite whole grain for three reasons: First, it takes less time to cook than other whole grains – just 10 to 15 minutes. Second, quinoa tastes great on its own, unlike other grains such as millet. Add a bit of olive oil, sea salt and lemon juice and – yum! Finally, of all the whole grains, quinoa has the highest protein content (12%–18%) and provides all 9 essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. It is a good source of dietary fiber, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. Quinoa is an organic gluten-free and cholesterol-free whole grain.

Quinoa was a staple food for thousands of years in the Andes region of South America as one of just a few crops the ancient Incas cultivated at such high altitude.

Quinoa has anti-inflammatory nutrients including phenolic acids (including hydroxycinnamic and hydroxybenzoic acids), members of the vitamin E family like gamma-tocopherol, and cell wall polysaccharides like arabinans and rhamnogalacturonans.

 

Here are 11 proven health benefits of quinoa:

1. Quinoa is incredibly nutritious
Quinoa is a grain crop that is grown for its edible seeds. It is pronounced KEEN-wah.

It technically isn’t a cereal grain, but a pseudo-cereal. In other words, it is basically a "seed" which is prepared and eaten similarly to a grain.

Quinoa was an important crop for the Inca Empire back in the day. They referred to it as the "mother of all grains" and believed it to be sacred. It has been consumed for thousands of years in South America, although it only became popular and reached "superfood status" a few years ago. These days, you can find Quinoa and products made with it all over the world.

There are three main types of quinoa… white, red and black. This is coming with a total of 222 calories, with 39 grams of carbs and 4 grams of fat. It also contains a small amount of Omega-3 fatty acids.

Quinoa is non-GMO, Gluten Free and usually grown organically. Even though not technically a grain, it still counts as a "whole grain" food.

2. Quinoa contains potent bioactive substances called Quercetin and Kaempferol
The health effects of real foods go way beyond the vitamins and minerals we’re all familiar with.

There are thousands of trace nutrients in there… and some of them are extremely healthy. This includes interesting molecules called flavonoids, which are plant antioxidants that have been shown to have all sorts of beneficial effects on health.

Two flavonoids that have been particularly well studied are Quercetin and Kaempferol… and they happen to be found in large amounts in Quinoa. In fact, the quercetin content of quinoa is even higher than typical high-quercetin foods like cranberries. These important molecules have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-cancer and anti-depressant effects… at least in animal studies.

By including quinoa in your diet, you will significantly increase your total intake of these (and other) important nutrients.

3. It is Very High in Fiber… Much Higher Than Most Grains 
Another important benefit of quinoa is that it is high in fiber. One study that looked at 4 varieties of quinoa found a range of between 10 and 16 grams of fiber, per every 100 grams of uncooked quinoa. This equals 17-27 grams per cup, which is very high… more than twice as high as most grains. Boiled quinoa contains much less fiber, gram for gram, because it absorbs so much water.

Unfortunately, most of the fiber is insoluble fiber, which doesn’t appear to have the same health benefits as soluble fiber. That being said, the soluble fiber content is about 2.5 grams per cup (or 1.5 grams per 100 grams), which is still decent. There are numerous studies showing that soluble fiber can help reduce blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol, increase fullness and help with weight loss.

4. Quinoa is Gluten Free and Perfect For People With Gluten Intolerance
Many researchers have been looking at quinoa as a suitable ingredient in a gluten-free diet, for people who don’t want to give up staples like breads and pasta.

Studies have shown that by using quinoa instead of typical gluten-free ingredients like refined tapioca, potato, corn and rice flour, it can dramatically increase the nutrient and antioxidant value of the diet.

5. Quinoa is Very High in Protein, With All The Essential Amino Acids That we Need 
Protein is made out of amino acids. Some of them are termed "essential" because we can not produce them and need to get them from the diet. If a food contains all the essential amino acids, it is seen as a "complete" protein. The problem is that many plant foods are deficient in certain essential amino acids, such as Lysine.

However, quinoa is an exception to this, being particularly high in in all the essential amino acids. For this reason, quinoa is an excellent source of protein. It has both more and better protein than most grains.

With 8 grams of quality protein per cup of cooked quinoa (or 4.5 grams per 100 grams), quinoa is an excellent plant-based protein source for vegetarians and vegans.

6. Quinoa Has a Low Glycemic Index 
The glycemic index is a measure of how quickly foods raise blood sugar levels. It is known that eating foods that are high on the glycemic index can stimulate hunger and contribute to obesity. Such foods have also been linked to many of the chronic, Western diseases that are so common today… like diabetes and heart disease. Quinoa has a glycemic index of 53, which is considered low.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that quinoa is still pretty high in carbs, so it is not a good choice for a low-carb diet, at least not in large amounts.

7. It is High in Minerals That Most People Don’t Get Enough of, Especially Magnesium
There are many nutrients in the modern diet that people tend to be lacking in. This is particularly true of some minerals, especially Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc and (for women) Iron. Interestingly, quinoa is very high in all 4 minerals. It is particularly high in magnesium, with one cup having about 30% of the RDA.

The problem is that quinoa contains a substance called phytic acid, which can bind these minerals and reduce their absorption.

However, by soaking and/or sprouting the quinoa before cooking it, you can reduce the phytic acid content and make these minerals more bioavailable.

Quinoa is also pretty high in oxalates, which reduce the absorption of calcium and can cause problems for certain individuals with recurring kidney stones.

8. Quinoa May Have Some Major Benefits For Metabolic Health
Given the high amount of beneficial nutrients, it makes sense that quinoa could lead to improvements in metabolic health.

Although this needs to be studied more thoroughly, I did find two studies (one in humans, the other in rats) that examined the effects of quinoa on metabolic health.

The human study found that using quinoa instead of typical gluten-free breads and pastas significantly reduced blood sugar, insulin and triglyceride levels. The rat study found that adding quinoa to a diet high in fructose almost completely inhibited the negative effects of fructose.

9. Quinoa is Loaded With Antioxidants
Quinoa also happens to be very high in antioxidants.
Antioxidants are substances that neutralize free radicals and are believed to help fight ageing and many diseases.
One study looked at antioxidants in 10 foods, 5 cereals, 3 pseudocereals and 2 legumes.
Quinoa had the highest antioxidant content of all 10.
Allowing quinoa seeds to sprout seems to increase the antioxidant content even further.

10. Quinoa Has Several Important Characteristics That Make it a Weight Loss Friendly Food
In order to lose weight, we need to take in fewer calories than we burn.

It is known that certain properties of foods can facilitate this process… either by boosting metabolism (increasing calories out) or reducing appetite (lowering calories in).

Interestingly, quinoa has several such properties. It is high in protein… which can both increase metabolism and reduce appetite significantly. The high amount of fiber should also help to increase feelings of fullness, making us eat fewer calories overall.

The fact that quinoa has a low glycemic index is another important feature, but choosing such foods has been linked to reduced calorie intake.

Although there is currently no study that looks at the effects of quinoa on body weight, it seems intuitive that it could be a useful part of a healthy weight loss diet.

11. Quinoa is Easy to Incorporate Into Your Diet!
The last one is not a health benefit, but still incredibly important. It is the fact that quinoa is very easy to incorporate into your diet.

It is also tasty and goes well with many foods. Depending on the type of quinoa, it can be important to rinse it with water in order to get rid of saponins, which are found on the outer layer and can have a bitter flavour.

However, some brands have already been rinsed, so this may not be necessary.

Here are the steps to make about 2 cups of sprouted quinoa:
1.
Rinse 1 – 1.5 cups of quinoa thoroughly with cold water. Place the quinoa into a 1 quart mason jar. Fill this jar to the top with more cold water. Let it soak for about six hours.

2. Pour out the water and put a sprouting lid on the jar. This lid can also be used as a strainer. Or, you can use a fine mesh strainer. After you pour the water out, set the jar with the sprouting lid on upside down in a bowl/container to catch excess dripping water.

3. About every 6 or so hours (or whenever you have time to/remember), rinse the quinoa with water, pour out, and put the jar upside down over the bowl again.

4. It will take a day or two for sprouts to form. Once you see little-thread-like spouts coming from the quinoa , place the quinoa on a tray or plate and cover with a cloth or parchment paper to keep away dust. Move this tray away from direct sunlight and keep at room temperature. Allow time for the quinoa to fully dry out.

5. Store in a sealed plastic bag or sealed glass container in the refrigerator to keep cool and ensure freshness. It’s best to use these sprouts within 1 week!

Quinoa can be ready to eat in as little as 15-20 minutes:
Put 2 cups of water in a pot, turn up the heat.
Add 1 cup of raw quinoa, with a dash of salt.
Boil for 15-20 minutes.
Eat.
It should now have absorbed most of the water and gotten a fluffy look. If done right, it should have a mild, nutty flavour and a satisfying crunch.

Chanson C3 Pre-Filtration System (for city water)

  • Description
  • More Details

NEW!

The Alkawater C3 Pre-Filter is the ultimate in water filtration technology. Harmful contaminants such as fluoride, chloramines, lead, arsenic, sulfur, pesticides and nitrates can cause sickness and health problems over years of ingestion. The C3 Pre-Filter is designed to effectively reduce harmful contaminants without removing healthy minerals and other important properties from the water.

Reconfigured to Protect Against 99% of Chloramines Alkawater has noticed a trend towards increased chloramine usage by municipalities. In order to provide our customers with the ultimate protection, we reconfigured our C3 Pre-Filter to protect the user from up to 99% of chloramines. This new Chanson filter configuration has replaced our original C3 Pre-Filter and is now what is exclusively sold to Chanson customers and dealers. 

Product Description

Three Stages of Filtration

Each C3 canister is devoted to addressing a different set of harmful chemicals, heavy metals, fluoride, chlorine,chloramines, and over 100 additional contaminants.

STAGE 1: KDF-55/Super Carbon - Heavy metals, bacteria, sulfur, pesticides, and nitrates.

STAGE 2: Activated Alumina - Fluoride, lead, and arsenic.

STAGE 3: Catalytic Carbon - Chloramines, bad taste and odor

Advantages Over a Reverse Osmosis System

Did you know that a Reverse Osmosis (R/O) system not only completely strips your water of its healthy mineral content, but also wastes approximately five gallons of water to every one gallon you drink? The C3 Pre-Filter uses a direct filtering process to produce healthy drinking water that still contains healthy mineral content, without all the water waste.

Long-Lasting

Our C3 Pre-Filters last approximately a whole year! There is not a water filter on the market that can compete with our C3 triple-filtration system.
Can Be Used Alone or in Conjunction With A Water Ionizer

The Chanson C3 Pre-Filter can be used on its own or in conjunction with a water ionizer, because unlike R/O systems, it allows valuable minerals through for the ionizer to ionize, and for your body to absorb. No need for a storage tank due to the "on demand" water supply and great flow rate.

One year Warranty

All Chanson filters have full one year warranty on the housings, hoses and fittings. Should your filter housing, hoses, or fittings ever become damaged for any reason just give us a call and we will instruct you on how to mail the damaged parts to us and will mail replacements to you right away. The C3 Pre-Filtration unit comes with two different filter sets, one for city water and one for well water. One of three install setups can be selected upon checkout: - C3 Standard (for use without a water ionizer or for use with an under counter ionizer such as the VS-70 or Angel) - C3-MUC (for use with all brands of countertop water ionizer with the filter installed undersink) - C3-C (for use with all brands of countertop ionizer with the filter installed on the counter)

If you are using a well-water source, you will want to add on a single stage Ultra Filter for added filtration.

By Emeritus Professor John M Gottman & Nan Silver
Hardback, 282pages
Publication date: 4 September 2012

In this insightful book, celebrated research psychologist and couples counselor John Gottman plumbs the mysteries of love and shares the results of his famous "Love Lab" Where does love come from? Why does some love last, and why does some fade? And how can we keep it alive? Based on laboratory findings, this book shows readers how to identify signs, behaviors, and attitudes that indicate a fraying relationship and provides strategies for repairing what may seem lost or broken.

Reviews

“In an easy-to-understand format full of anecdotes, imaginary dialogues, and analogies to game theory, Gottman explains lack of trust in a relationship … The practical tools to evaluate current relationships and step-by-step methods for avoiding betrayal, repairing relationships heading toward crisis, or healing a relationship after a crisis will be useful to couples who want to look honestly at healing chronic hurts and improving the state of their relationship, and are ready for a system to help them.”—Publishers Weekly

5-out-of-5 stars Gottman does it again - exceptional research, practical advice! By Dr. Kathy Nickerson

"As a relationship expert myself, I am constantly reading books about healing from affairs, repairing marriage, and regaining trust in a damaged relationship. Dr. Gottman is truly a psychologist's psychologist; he has been researching couples and relationships for almost 40 years and every single one of his books contains practical advice. This book is no different and what really makes it stand out from all of the other relationship books on the market is that it is based on research, not hunches or guesses.

In this book, Gottman discusses the impact of betrayal on a relationship and how repeated betrayal erodes the foundation of a marriage. He describes how partners who have lost trust in each other frequently end up in very negative cycles of continued arguments. Gottman goes on to give readers many practical tools and tips, including how to measure your current trust level, how to analyze your contribution to an argument, how to rebuild trust, and much more.

Quite simply, if you or someone you know is working to repair their marriage after an affair or trust injury, there's no better book on the market. I couldn't recommend it more highly."

5-out-of-5 stars Most meaningful research based Relationship Advice I've ever read by Leo Ostapivon October

"While writing mine HOME FINANCES for COUPLES. Resolve Money Problems in Marriage and Learn Easy Steps to Manage your Family Budget I've read several relationship books, this one is in TOP 3. Here is my review:

Loving partnership gives us wonderful gifts that make life worth living: a sense of purpose, greater health and wealth, and, of course, loving care and nurturance. We all desire to have it. But, how to make it last for decades? "What Makes Love Last" is very different from any other relationship book I've read before. Dr. Gootman knows his subject in depth.

POSITIVE IMPRESSIONS
- Conclusions and recommendations are based on the objective data from scientific studies
- Number of useful assessment metrics and tests (measure trust metric, accessing sex and romance, "is this a real thing" quiz, etc)
- A perfect balance between sientific and general writing style.
- Lots of valuable advice (I took about 3 pages of notes)

SOME VALUABLE NOTES
- The Zeigarnik effect about unresolved issues (people remember uncompleted or interrupted tasks better than completed tasks)
- Negative comparisons lead to betrayal
- Relationship killers are founded on two building blocks: deception (not revealing your true needs to avoid unpleasent conflict) and a yearning for emotional connection thats seems unavailable from the partner
- Attunement : ability to understand each other at a deep level and lovingly express that knowledge to each other
- Not to give advice unless asked. Just being there and listening is an enormous contribution
- Turn to each other during sliding door moments. Do not move onto negotiating a compromise until you can say to each other Yes you got it. That is exactly my position and what I am feeling.
- Stick to "I feel" "I need" statements instead of "You don't...", "You should"
- When partners are upset, their negative emitions line up like dominos. What else are you feeling ? Is there more you want to say?
- Listener: pause and breathe, write down what your partners says and any defensiveness you are feeling, remember your love and respect (in this relationship we do not ignore one another plans, I have to understand this hurt)
- The sexually active partners had a closer friendship and were commited to making sex a priority.
- Most women want sex sex when they already feel emotionally close, but for men sex is a way of becoming emotionally close.

-Five dimensions of interview to predict risk of divorce:
* Positive vs negative past memories
* I vs WE statements
* Still remember love map detais of memorable moments and partner's inner world
* Telling how they struggle and overcome difficulties instead of chaos description
* Feeling of satisfaction with the relationship vs disappoitment

- When a man realizes how critical it is that he make his wife feel secure, their relationship reaps enormous benefits.
- Description of trust game (Individual who risk trusting others benefit more than those who are suspicious)
- Enduring love comes when we love most of what we learn about the other person and can tolerate the faults they cannot change

CRITICS
- Beside sex chapter the book has too brief advice on "How to improve it" after the measurement was take.
- It's age resistant relationship advice, but still it would be good to mention some modern family challenges (Dual income household, impact of Facebook and mobile...)
- Money and household economics is often an issue, the book has no mentions of money problems and dealing with them

CONCLUSION
The book provides unique relationship assessment tools and illuminates what it takes to create a relationship that is mutually satisfying and adds profound meaning to your life."

Reviews

 "John Gottman is our leading explorer of the inner world of relationships. In The Relationship Cure, he has found gold once again. This book shows how the simplest, nearly invisible gestures of care and attention hold the key to successful relationships with those we love and work with."
-- William J. Doherty, Ph.D., author of Take Back Your Marriage: Sticking Together in a World That Pulls Us Apart

"This is the best book on relationships I have ever read -- a truly impressive tour-de-force. John Gottman has discovered the Rosetta Stone of relationships. He has decoded the subtle secrets contained in our moment-to-moment communications. By introducing the simple yet amazingly powerful concept of the "bid," he provides a remarkable set of tools for relationship repair. By the middle of the second chapter you're likely to say to yourself, "Oh, so that's what's happening in my relationship with my partner (or colleague, boss, or sister), and now I know what to do about it."

"I always expect to learn something from John Gottman, and I have never been disappointed. The Relationship Cure is original, insightful, and immensely helpful. I love the concept of emotional bids. Gottman not only helps the reader recognize how he or she may be short circuiting connection and communication, he gives them very good practical advice, as well as examples of wrong and right ways to deal with even the most aggressive or passive partner interaction."

The Thyroid Solution: A Revolutionary Mind-Body Program for Regaining Your Emotional and Physical Health
Paperback

Author: Ridha Arem
Paperback, 464 pages
Publication Date: 28 January 2008

It's sometimes called a hidden epidemic: One in ten Americans--more than twenty million people, most of them women--has a thyroid disorder. At any given time, millions of people have an undiagnosed thyroid disorder and experience a chronic mental anguish that almost certainly arises from the very same source. Yet many primary-care doctors still don't recognize the importance of the thyroid in mind-body health--and its especially crucial role in women's well-being. The Thyroid Solution is a must-read for anyone who suffers from a thyroid condition. It's the first mind-body approach to identifying and curing thyroid imbalances. Written by a medical pioneer and leading authority in the field of thyroid research, this groundbreaking book offers Dr. Ridha Arem's practical program for maintaining thyroid health through diet, exercise, and stress control--and through his revolutionary medical plan, which combines two types of hormone treatments with astounding results. Inside you'll discover - The thyroid basics--what it is, where it is, what it does - How thyroid hormones affect the brain and alter mood, emotions, and behavior leading to brain fog, weight gain, loss of libido, infertility, anxiety, and depression - What tests to ask your doctor to give you--and what they mean - The vital connection between stress and thyroid imbalance - The benefits of antioxidants and essential fatty-acid foods and supplements - How to recognize and cure the deep and lingering effects of a thyroid imbalance Filled with remarkable patient histories and interviews that document the dramatic results of Dr. Arem's bold new treatments, The Thyroid Solution now gives you and your doctor the tools you need to live a life with peace of mind . . . and body.

Reviews:

"This book has had a profound impact on the way I think, on how I see patients, and on my perception of the connection between the brain and hormones." --Mona Lisa Schulz, M.D., Ph.D. Author of Awakening Intuition

"At last, a nationally known endocrinologist with impeccable credentials discusses vital issues of thyroid disease and treatment never previously addressed in print. Dr. Arem provides solid explanations for symptoms of hypothyroidism in patients with normal blood levels of thyroid hormones and particularly addresses the needs of women who have thyroid and hormonal disorders." --Gillian Ford Author of Listening to Your Hormones and The Link Between Thyroid and Depression "This book will be of tremendous help to the many people with thyroid disease and residual depressive symptoms. Dr. Arem elegantly addresses the important interplay of thyroidology and psychiatry." --Lauren Marangell, M.D. Baylor College of Medicine

5 out of 5 stars. This book saved my life. By EQ 
After receiving radioactive iodine therapy for hyperthyroidism, I experienced a near-complete emotional and mental breakdown soon after: I could not stop crying; I had vivid, violent nightmares; it was extremely difficult to get up in the morning; I had no control over my emotions, and I picked fights with my boyfriend almost constantly. The "possible slight depression" I was warned about in hypothyroid pamphlets from my doctor was much different than what I was experiencing... In my mind, I was going crazy--and I didn't know what to do. A friend came across this book and it was only then that I realized my symptoms were related to severe hypothyroidism and I went in to see my doctor sooner.

My RAI treatment had taken effect very quickly and my thyroid levels were extremely low, which explained my symptoms. Doctors like to warn you that you may "gain weight," an easy physical symptom, but they do not warn you that you may feel like you are losing your mind.

I have struggled with thyroid disease for 18 years, having a sub-total thyroidectomy in my teens for hyperthyroidism, only to have the disease recur in my early thirties. The endocrinologists I have seen during this time treated me based on my TSH, T3 and T4 levels from blood tests--but they never explained to me the level at which my emotional and mental health depends on the balance of these levels. I realize now how dangerous it is to give patients incomplete information.

This book connects the endocrine system to the whole person: the physical, mental and emotional health, with the physical, mental and emotional everyday life of the patient. Without an understanding and an explanation to the patient of these synergies, medicinal treatment alone becomes inadequate and the patient suffers.

If you have thyroid disease or plan to undergo RAI or surgery for treatment, please prepare yourself and read this book. You'll be glad you did.

Sodium Bentonite Clay - Natural - Australia

bentonite-clay-aus
  • Description
  • More Details
NEW!

Sodium Bentonite, when activated by water, can swell up to six times its size and has a electromagnetic properties. This makes it very absorbent and helpful for drawing out toxins.

Bentonite clay is the natural detoxing agent that can be used internally, externally with poultices and full body applications, and by taking detox clay baths. These are highly beneficial methods for detoxification, especially for cases of heavy metal poisoning and radiation buildup. So consider releasing the toxic burden of the body inside and out with a safe and effective Sodium Bentonite Clay detoxification program.
Every cell in our body excretes waste material, which becomes toxic and poisonous to our bodies if it is allowed to build up faster than it can be eliminated or filtered out of the body. The most common symptoms of toxic buildup within the body are mental dullness, aching-stiff joints, gas and bloat, high acidity, digestive problems with the stomach and colon, acid reflux and fatigue. Therefore, it is imperative to naturally detox to rid yourself of the deleterious effects of impurities and toxins. There is a lot of popular sharing of results of clay users suggesting that Calcium Bentonite Clay therapy may be an ideal detoxification treatment because it is safe and effective. Clay has many healing abilities due to its alkaline pH and high negative ionic charge, and it works on the entire organism. Take control of your body by detoxing to help regain and achieve the pinnacle of your health!

Kathryn Alexander, one of the leading experts in detoxification and dietary healing, succinctly states on her Web site:

"The legacy of 50 years exposure to persistent man-made chemicals combined with the denigration of the food chain has increased our susceptibility to chronic degenerative disease and cancer. Reversal can only come about by resolving these primary causes of disease. By releasing the toxic burden of the body and restoring its nutritional status, we can change our internal environment and achieve good health" (Get a Life).

Resolving the primary causes of disease is facilitated by proper nutrition, exercise, and detoxing. Drinking plenty of water and simple sweating helps to flush your system of toxins, but clay therapy, which has been used for thousands of years by indigenous people around the world, has passed the test of time to be a superior natural detoxification method.

Clay is basically inert super charged minerals, and it gets its negative electromagnetic energy charge from the thermo dynamic heat and volcanic action that created it. When activated by water the clay awakens with a strength that radiates throughout the body, stimulating energy for the rebuilding and revitalization of latent cells, and starts a healing process. The body needs this energy to restore harmonic balance essential to healthy maintenance. In addition, this super power has the ability to absorb harmful, toxic substances from within the body, tightly bind them within the molecule, and carry them out of the body.

The following is a passage written by Michael Talbot, as quoted from Windows of Light by Randall & Vicki Baer:

"Crystals are dramatic examples of the capacity of matter to self-organize. As we saw in the incident related by Holden and Sanger, they can also acquire and retain information-- for example, their geometric structure-- and reproduce copies of themselves containing the same information. Given that they perform all these functions while remaining far more stable and durable than DNA, Cairns-Smith believes that crystals make very likely candidates as the most ancient progenitors of life. However, to more fully establish his case, Cairns-Smith knew that he had to find a crystal that possessed one further quality, the ability to use the information it possesses to interact with its environment..."

The renowned chemist and researcher. A.G. Cairns-Smith, went on to say, "Clays not only have the ability to grow and adsorb other molecules, but they can then incorporate the information from those molecules and use it to alter and change themselves" (The Origin of Life).

Clay acts as a catalyst. A catalyst is any substance that works to accelerate a chemical reaction. For any process to occur, energy, known as activation energy, is required. Without the help of a catalyst the amount of energy needed to spark a particular reaction is high. When the catalyst is present the activation energy is lowered, making the reaction happen more efficiently. The catalyst generally works by either changing the structure of a molecule or by bonding to reactant molecules causing them to combine, react and release a product or energy.

By absorbing toxins before they enter the bloodstream, clay reduces the overload of toxins that the liver and kidneys normally have to filter out. By eliminating the buildup of waste lodged in the lower colon, clay allows the body to absorb more nutrients, vitamins and minerals.

Today, due to the scientific studies and personal results, we are more aware of the beneficial effects of the detoxification of our body's cells and the importance it plays in assisting the body's return to a state of equilibrium. The following is an excerpt from Natasha Lee's article "Could Detoxification be the Fountain of Youth?":

"Dr. Alexis Carrel, of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research performed an amazing experiment in the early 1900's. He managed to sustain the life of cells from a chicken embryo by immersing the cells in a solution containing all the nutrients necessary for life and changing the solution daily. The cells took up nutrients from the nutrient-rich broth and excreted their wastes into the same solution. The only thing Dr. Carrel did each day was discard the old solution and replace it with fresh nutrient solution. The chicken cells lived for 29 years until one night Dr. Carrel's assistant forgot to change the polluted solution! We do not know how much longer the cell's life could have been maintained. Dr. Carrel concluded at the end of his experiment that the cell is actually immortal. It is merely the fluid in which it floats which degenerates. He is quoted saying 'The cell is immortal. Renew this fluid at intervals, give the cell something on which to feed and, so far as we know, the pulsation of life may go on forever.' The average chicken lives about 7 years. His detoxified, properly nourished chicken cell lived for 29 years" (Years to Your Health).

Therefore, Carrel believed that time is not the real culprit in our ageing process, but the buildup of toxins unable to be eliminated from the body through its natural cleansing process. This toxic overload that gets stored in the body begins to have an adverse effect on the healthy cells and the downward spiral of the deterioration process is escalated.

Dr. Carrel's work showed that a clean internal environment is the logical solution to extending our lifeline. The real fountain of youth can be achieved by merely keeping the body functioning highly by detoxing, eating a nutritional and balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and staying flexible and limber with exercise.

Calcium Bentonite Clay is one of the safest, easiest, and least expensive detoxing substances available today. Clay is a non-evasive treatment, and when it is properly used, clay treatments cause no harm. Rapid healing often results, such as a noticeable reduction in pain, irritation, and inflammation, even when many other methods have failed.

Clay functions in several ways

1. Minerals that make up Bentonite clay (which the body cannot absorb) work together to absorb heavy metals and other toxins in the gut. Thus, clay taken internally, can help improve intestinal health and keep the toxins from being absorbed into the body.
2. The energy of clay stimulates the revitalization and rebuilding of damaged cells and tissues.
3. Clay baths, poultices and topical applications, through clay's strong drawing powers, help your body detox through the pores of skin. Through a pulsing action, clay will draw out infections, gangrene, heavy metals and toxins.
4. Internal parasites are drawn to the clay and expelled from the body.
5. Most clays are naturally alkaline and as a result, balance the body's pH and reduce over acidity.

How to Use

Bentonite clays can be used internally and externally. If you are using a clay internally be sure that the product states that it is safe for internal use. Due to metals and other impurities that may be found in the clays, not all of them can be taken internally. If you are unsure of the purity of the clay contact the manufacturer.

For internal use, mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of the clay in at least 8 ounces of water. Drink the mixture and follow with another 8 ounces of pure water. It has also been found useful to add fibre such as psyllium hulls to this process to help move the clay along through the digestive tract.

For external use, mix 1 to 2 tablespoons in a bowl with water or apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is antibacterial which may help alleviate some of the underlying causes that aggravate acne. Add the liquid slowly until you develop a muddy consistency. This part is not as crucial and is really up to your preference. Apply the mixture to your face or any other area and let it dry for at least 15 to 20 minutes. Wash and feel fantastic!

Clays may also be added to a bath. Add 1 to 2 cups of clay to your hot bath water and soak in it for at least 30 minutes for best results.

A foot bath is also useful for detoxing by adding 3 to 4 tablespoons to a tub of hot water and soaking your feet in it for at least 30 minutes.

Bentonite clay has many uses for healing and detoxification that may not have been listed here, and more are being found every day.

Health Benefits

Raw Cacao Nibs:

Antioxidants

Research has demonstrated that the antioxidants in cacao are highly stable and easily available to human metabolism. In the adjacent table you can see that our Raw Cacao has set the world record for antioxidants when compared to the other top 10 antioxidant foods such as Goji Berries, Acai Berries, and blueberries. The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture to measure the ability of antioxidants to absorb free radicals, which normally cause cell and tissue damage. The higher the ORAC score, the higher the level of antioxidants present in the food. 

Evaporated Coconut Nectar:

Our Evaporated Coconut Nectar is unfiltered and preservative free. It has a low on the Glycemic Index (GI) of 35. By comparison, most honeys are GI 55 and cane sugars are GI 68.

The Glycemic Index provides a ranking for carbohydrates according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a low GI (less than 40), produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, avoiding the sugar “highs” and “lows” that we experience when consuming foods with high GIs.

 Evaporated Coconut Nectar also has a nutritional and mineral content that is richer than all other commercially available sweeteners. When compared to brown sugar, Evaporated Coconut Nectar has twice the iron, four times the magnesium and over 10 times the amount of zinc.

Health Benefits

Almonds

Almonds are a good source of vitamin E, phosphorus and magnesium. Almonds naturally contain no Cholesterol, however are able to regulate cholesterol in our bodies by reducing LDL ('bad') cholesterol and increasing HDL ('good') cholesterol. The Ayurvedic system of medicine considers almonds to be both brain and nervous system supporting. Almonds have also been proven by various medical journals to have anti-inflammatory, immune boosting and liver supporting properties.

Brazil Nuts

Organic Raw Activated Brazil Nuts offers a good source of Omega 6, magnesium and is one of the highest dietary sources of selenium available.

Selenium is a rare mineral, which is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Other selenoproteins help regulate thyroid function and play a role in the immune system. 

Cashews

Cashews have a lower fat content than other nuts and approximately 75% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, with about 75% of this unsaturated fatty acid being oleic acid - the same heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. Studies show that oleic acid promotes good cardiovascular health. Studies of diabetic patients show that monounsaturated fat, when added to a low-fat diet, can help to reduce high triglyceride levels.

Coconut

Almost half of the Coconut’s fatty acid profile consists of lauric acid. Apart from being associated with anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties, studies have found lauric acid increases good cholesterol in the body.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds contain 13% fat, of which 64% is ALA (a-linolenic acid), also known as Omega 3, which is critical for our body to function at optimum levels. It cannot be synthesized by the human body but is vital for normal metabolism.

  • More Details

NEW!

Once upon a time, cinnamon was more valuable than gold. The potential health benefits attributable to cinnamon could be stated as nothing short of astonishing. Chinese medicine and Ayurveda have long revered cinnamon as a superpower used to treat things such as colds, indigestion and cramps and also believed to improve energy, vitality and circulation.

The following are 11 health benefits associated with this beloved spice that studies have suggested:

- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day can lower your bad cholesterol (or LDL).
- Cinnamon may help treat Type 2 Diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels and increasing the amount of insulin production in the body.
- Cinnamon has antifungal properties, and it’s been said that candida cannot live in a cinnamon environment.
- Cinnamon can reduce the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells.
- Cinnamon has an anti-clotting effect on the blood.
- Honey and Cinnamon combined have been found to relieve arthritis pain.
- When added to food, cinnamon inhibits bacterial growth and food spoilage, making it a natural food preservative.
- Just smelling cinnamon boosts cognitive function and memory.
- Cinnamon fights the E. coli bacteria in unpasteurized juices.
- Cinnamon has been found to be an effective natural remedy for eliminating headaches and migraine relief.
- Cinnamon can also help stablize blood sugar (which is great for weight loss). A couple of dashes in your morning tea or cereal is all it takes!

Different ways to use cinnamon
Most commonly used as a cinnamon spice. You can buy cinnamon as a cinnamon cane also or add cinnamon extract to your baking. You can buy cinnamon oil, but it is hard to find. You can use cinnamon in candles, air fresheners, candle warmers, aroma simmer pot, and incense that tickles your senses.

Medicinal uses for cinnamon
Cinnamon helps people to obtain alertness, and stay awake. Cinnamon relieves the symptoms associated with stomach problems. Pregnant women experiencing nausea can get relief by using cinnamon, and even problem pregnancies can have fewer problems by taking cinnamon. Cinnamon powder is naturally used in cold remedies, cinnamon allergy medicine or cinnamon mouth wash. Cinnamon has been found to lower blood sugar in type 2 diabetes, and aid in weight loss. Cinnamon has been used as and anti-inflammatory for rheumatism and as a muscle relaxer.

Cinnamon in your diet
There are many ways to get the cinnamon you need in your diet, and receive the many health benefits of cinnamon. The most common method is by putting it in a dessert dish, or on top of your morning oatmeal, cinnamon French toast or cinnamon rolls. Some people have no trouble eating cinnamon powder straight from the spice jar, but it is preferable to mix in some kind of food. It tastes good mixing in your coffee, tea. Of course cinnamon sweets are the best. We especially enjoy cinnamon in many candy and holiday desserts. Cinnamon oil makes some people allergic, and will find their lip swelling, or find a face has a rash, after eating something with cinnamon. Cinnamon is still the most favourite spice of all.

Ginger Powder - Raw Planet - Organic

  • Description
  • More Details
NEW! In stock now!

Ginger is one of the most frequently used spices in cooking and is used in both savoury and sweet dishes from all around the world. It creates great warmth and flavour in dishes but is also connected to Ayurvedic medicine to relieve colds, sore throat and coughs. It also has analgesic, sedative, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.

Ginger also contains numerous vitamins and minerals like pyridoxine, pantothenic acid, potassium, manganese, copper and magnesium. As a result, it is linked to reducing nausea and studies have shown could alleviate migraines.

Ginger is one of the most ancient spices in worldwide cuisine. It has become well-known for its various health benefits, which include its ability to boost bone health, strengthen the immune system, increase your appetite, prevents various types of cancer, improve respiratory conditions, aid digestion, eliminates arthritis symptoms, reduce excess gas, enhance sexual activity, and relieve pains related to menstrual disorders, nausea, and flu.

Ginger, also known as Zingiber Officinale, is directly used in Asian cultures by chopping it up or using its powder in traditional dishes and in soft drinks such as coffee and tea. Ginger’s irresistible fragrance is due to an essential oil in its composition that has been coveted and extracted by perfume makers since ancient times.

Not only is ginger known as an essence and a spice, it is known to be one of the oldest remedies known in herbal and aromatic traditional treatments, especially in China, India, and the Middle East. In China, it has been used for over 2,000 years for curing inflammation and diarrhea. Native to the Indo-Malaysian rain forests, ginger favours lush, moist, tropical soils for cultivation. Its cultivation may have begun in southern Asia, but it has since spread to East Africa and the Caribbean. Ginger’s perennial plant grows bright red flowers that come in different shapes such as torch and honeycomb, and are often used in seasonal festivals in the South Pacific for decoration of stalls, houses, and even dresses.

Today, ginger is on the FDA’s list of generally safe foods. Additionally, ginger’s health benefits have expanded beyond traditional knowledge to include a number of healthy boosts to your body.

Health Benefits of Ginger

The various health benefits of ginger are given below:

Bone Health:
Ginger is known to boost bone health and relieve joint pain. Two years ago, a study was conducted by the University of Miami that recruiting several hundred patients from different backgrounds and ages, that suffered from symptoms of osteoarthritis. The patients were then weaned away from anti-inflammatory and analgesic medications for cleansing purposes. A week later, they were split into two groups; one was put on a placebo, and the other on ginger supplements. After six weeks of intensive dosage, a survey was conducted among the two groups. Both groups felt improvement, but 63% of the ginger group felt a notable pain reduction, while only half of the placebo group recorded notable improvement. The last test was for the patients to walk the distance of 50 feet, which proved to be the far easier for the ginger group, and their results showed twice as much improvement than those test subjects on placebos.

Ginger has a number of unique organic compounds which have actually been named gingerols, and these are powerful anti-inflammatory compounds, some of the most powerful that can be found in food. These gingerols have been directly associated with improvements in knee inflammation and associated pain, as well as suppressing the inflammatory compounds like cytokines and chemokines at the source, before they can even begin to affect the body. Ginger represents both a preventative measure and a treatment for inflammation and its associated pain.

Diarrhea:
Ginger has been used since ancient times to cure diarrhea, and it was more recently proven by researchers that ginger indeed helps, since it prevents stomach spasms and gases that contribute to and stimulate diarrhea. In China, ginger powder has been given to those with diarrhea with great success for thousands of years; scientists have concluded that the ancient ways are indeed beneficial for this condition.

Excess Gas:
Ginger is a very strong carminative, meaning that it induces excess gas to leave the body. Excess gas does more than leave you in an uncomfortable situation if you can’t hold your gas to yourself, it can also be a dangerous situation for your health. Too much gas built up in your system can force upwards and put pressure on delicate organs in the torso. A carminative like ginger forces the gas down and out in a healthy way, and also prevents additional gas from building up again.

Digestion:
Ginger has been discovered to be a facilitator of the digestive process. The elevated sugar levels after a meal may cause the stomach to reduce its natural rate of emptying its contents. Ginger helps in regulating high sugar levels that may disrupt digestion and soothe the stomach, thus, maintaining its regular rhythm. Along with that, ginger has a number of compounds that improve the absorption of nutrients and minerals from the food we eat. This is why ginger is also frequently used as an appetizer or a aperitif, since it can stimulate the appetite while also preparing the digestive system for an influx of food. Ginger is popular in Asian countries as an appetizer or raw menu item for precisely that reason.

Prevents Cancer:
One of the most exciting developments in the discussion of ginger and its impact on human health has been the positive correlation between the organic compounds in ginger and the prevention of cancer. Gingerols, those same compounds which give ginger its anti-inflammatory qualities, have also been shown to prevent carcinogenic activity in the colon that can lead to colorectal cancer. This is yet another way that ginger benefits the gastrointestinal system, making it such a perfect addition on the side of every meal. However, more recent studies have also connected these gingerols to apoptosis in ovarian cancer cells, thereby reducing tumors and the growth of cancerous cells, without harming the healthy cells around them.

Detoxifies and Disinfects:
Ginger is good at promoting sweating in those who eat, which is always a good thing, in moderation. Sweat not only cleans out the pores and allows your body to eliminate toxins through the liquid, but research has also shown that sweat includes a germ-fighting compound, named dermicidin. It has been positively connected to reduced bacterial and viral infections in a person who sweats regularly, since it can create a sheen on the skin, a protective layer of previously unknown proteins!

Sexual Activity:
A known aphrodisiac, ginger has been used for years to arouse desire and enhance sexual activity. Ginger’s scent has a unique allure that helps in establishing the sexual connection. Not to mention, ginger also helps increase blood circulation, hence blood flows more easily to the mid-section of the body, an important area for sexual performance!

Menstrual Cramps:
Cramps are the body’s way of alarming an individual to some type of danger or damage. In this case, prostaglandins, which are hormones that function as chemical messengers,  are the key activators of symptoms such as cramps, pains, and fevers. Scientists believe that high levels of prostaglandins contribute to increased menstrual cramps. Ginger helps by reducing the levels of prostaglandins in the body, hence relieving the cramps.

Nausea:
Studies have concluded that ginger helps in curing nausea connected with pregnancy, motion sickness and chemotherapy. Its quick absorption and rapid regulation of body functions cures nausea without the side effects of modern medications.

Flu:
Ginger has been prescribed to fight illness and infection for ages. Its soothing effect helps to reduce the body’s emergency symptom responses to the damaged cells in the body. While the white cells work on patching the cells and defending against the illness, ginger acts a barrier to the high levels of prostaglandins that induce fever, headaches, and cramps.

Other health benefits of ginger currently under research are its function in reducing heart diseases, arthritis, migraines, depression, and curing stress-related anxiety disorders.

Ginger may, at times, have side effects for those suffering from gallstones, since the herb incites the release of bile from the gallbladder. Therefore, if this sort of condition is expected, or if you have a history of gallbladder conditions, it is best to consult a doctor before consuming ginger.

How to use:
You can use ground ginger to make ginger tea or ginger ale fizz. Make a ginger tea, soak a piece of flannel or washcloth for about 5 minutes, wring out and place on painful area. Cover with a towel, then a heating pad or hot water bottle, then another towel. Leave on for 20 minutes. A compress, or fomentation, is helpful for painful joints, muscle sprains or stomach aches. You can also use ginger powder to make a ginger oil or salve that can be rubbed onto achy joints to help relieve some of the pains associated with arthritic conditions. You can also use ginger in an invigorating foot bath by adding two tablespoons of ginger powder to a tub of warm/hot water.

Ingredients: Organic Maca Powder

Dosage

For the ancient Incans and modern day Peruvians, especially in the Junin district of the Andes, maca is a staple food. So you can eat as much as you like, the more you eat the more energy and overall vigour you will experience. Maca is non-toxic, has no dangerous side affects and no withdrawal symptoms. So the quantity you can take really depends on what you want to achieve. This is why we do not put Maca into capsules and why we make it available at an affordable price so that people can consume it in appropriate quantities and experience the full benefit.

To start off with we recommend 1 teaspoon (if you feel a little queazy in the stomach reduce it to 1/2 a teaspoon for several days until your body adjusts to it). Then you can build up to 25g a day or approximately 5 teaspoons.

The only warning we have is that if you have a partner and you are taking lots of maca we recommend that your partner also take maca as it is a potent aphrodisiac - if you are concerned about this then just reduce the amount you are taking.

Serving Suggestions

Maca has a distinctive malt like flavour. Some people like eating it straight as it is by the spoonful. As maca dissolves easily you can mix it into juices, smoothies and other recipes
