Organic Barley Grass Powder

Barley-grass

   Our 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 wheat grass though some prefer the taste. Our organic Barley Grass Juice Powder is an easy way to get the nutrition of this incredible green food.

Barley Grass Juice Powder should not be confused with regular Barley Grass Powder. Barley Grass Juice Powder is made by first juicing the Barley Grass and removing all of the cellulose so a pure juice concentrate is left. Then the juice is cold dehydrated into a powder. In contrast, whole Barley Grass Powder is made by drying the entire grass leaf and then milling it into a fine powder.

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 can 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)
● P4D1 Enzyme
● Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs)

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 Juice powder may include:
● Improving energy ● High antioxidants levels ● Improving digestion & regularity ● Alkalizing the internal body ● Rebuild the immune system ● Excellent source of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) ● Providing raw building blocks for the hair, skin & nails ● Internal cleansing properties ● Promoting clear thinking ● Anti-aging properties

Organic Beet Root Powder                                                           

Organic raw Beet Root Powder provides a wide range of nutrients, but its most significant phytochemical is betaine. This plant chemical helps the liver and kidneys recycle the amino acid methionine to maintain the body's stores of s-adenosyl-methionine, more commonly known as SAM-e. Betaine also helps the liver process fat. This prevents the accumulation of fatty tissues in the liver (steatosis), especially in heavy drinkers, and it also helps moderate triglycerides and LDL cholesterol in the blood. The American Heart Association, recommends beet juice to promote healthy blood pressure.

Organic Beet Root Powder is a wonderful cleansing and nourishing tonic that builds the blood, particularly improving the blood quality for menstruating women. It also normalizes the blood's pH balance (reducing acidity) and purifies the blood by flushing away fatty deposits and improving circulation. Further supporting its role as a blood purifier, Beet Root has been used to detoxify and heal the liver and spleen.

Beet roots are rich in potassium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium and calcium as well as vitamin A, B and C. Beets are a unique 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 benefits of our Raw Organic Beet Root Powder may include:


Diuretic effects
Purifying the blood
Betaine - plays an important role in the health of the cardiovascular system
Good natural source of folate (also known as vitamin B9 & natural folic acid)
Source of pectin which may chelate certain heavy metals
Zinc - helps protect against fatty deposits in the liver & boosts the immune system.
Normalizing the blood's pH balance
Naturally detoxifying the liver & spleen
Helping to regulate proper blood pressure levels
Dimethylglycine - (also known as DMG) may promote healthy heart & cardiovascular system

 

100% pure organic beet root powder has a tendency to clump so it is not unusual to find some clumps in this powder.

Organic Broccoli Sprout Powder

      broccolli_4   broccolli_5

How can you beat the nutrition of broccoli? Broccoli sprouts! Broccoli sprouts can contain up to 50 times the amount of certain antioxidants found in full grown Broccoli. Broccoli sprouts are an excellent source of sulforaphane glucosinolate, a natural compound found in broccoli and other cruciferous plants, that provide antioxidant protection. 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. 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 for protective effects against hormone-related cancers, such as breast and prostate cancer. I3C promotes "good" hormones, while working against destructive ones. I3C supports healthy cellular replication and interferes with the life cycle of abnormal cell growth by inhibiting an enzyme important in the cell's growth cycle. The sulforaphane in broccoli also helps to increase the level of enzymes that block abnormal cell growth, 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). Indole-3-carbino and sulforaphane are found in much higher levels in broccoli sprouts than the mature vegetable.

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.

Some possible benefits of our raw Broccoli Sprout Powder may include:


Supporting healthy digestion
Combating inflammation throughout the body
High levels of sulforaphane which can combat H. pylori bacteria
Enhancing detoxification throughout the body
Supporting healthy cardiovascular system
Combating the development of cataracts
Supporting "good" hormones, while working against destructive ones
Combating high blood pressure
High levels of antioxidants
Combating allergies & asthma

Organic Carrot Powder

Carrots    
Carrots are nutritional heroes; they store a goldmine of nutrients. No other vegetable or fruit contains as much carotene as carrots, which the body converts to vitamin A. This is a truly versatile vegetable and an excellent source of vitamins B and C as well as calcium pectate, an extraordinary pectin fiber that has been found to have cholesterol lowering properties. The carrot is an  herbaceous plant containing about 87% water, rich in mineral salts and vitamins (B,C,D,E). Raw carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A and potassium; they contain vitamin C, vitamin B6, thiamine, magnesium, folate (also known as vitamin B9 and natural folic acid). The high level of beta-carotene is very important and gives carrots their distinctive orange color.
The known phytonutrients in carrots are lutein, lycopene, alpha, beta and gamma carotenes, zeaxanthin and xanthophyll. These phytonutrients are nature's marvelous provision for combating of various illnesses. Carrots are credited with many medicinal properties; they are said to cleanse the intestines and to be diuretic, remineralizing, antidiarrheal, an overall tonic and antianemic.

The best way to insure the body has enough amino acid material to make the globulins is to eat foods high in globulin proteins. Since hemp  protein is 65% globulin edistin, and also includes quantities of albumin, its protein is readily available in a form quite similar to that found in blood plasma Ingesting hemp powder  gives the body all the essential amino acids required to maintain health, and provides the necessary kinds and amounts of amino acids the body needs to make human serum albumin and serum globulins like the immune enhancing gamma globulins. Eating hemp  could aid, if not heal, people suffering from immune deficiency diseases. This conclusion is supported by the fact that hemp  was used to treat nutritional deficiencies brought on by tuberculosis, a severe nutrition blocking disease that causes the body to waste away. [Czechoslovakia Tubercular Nutritional Study, 1955] “

“The use of hemp for food and medicine may be as old as the human race itself.  Recent interest in the seed arises from the awareness of the nutritional need for omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids, as well as the need for cheap sources of protein to feed a burgeoning population in Asia and the developing world. In addition to its nutritional value, hemp seed  powder has demonstrated positive health benefits, including the lowering of cholesterol and high blood pressure.

 Organic Tomato Powder

The 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, 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).

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.

Rich in lycopene, the 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.



Some possible benefits of our Raw Organic Tomato Powder may include:

● Reducing excessive blood platelet clumping

Bacopa Monnieri

a plant, has an age-old reputation for being an effective and powerful herb helpful for memory and combating stress. Bacopa monnieri, known to most as Brahmi, acts as an adaptogen; which means it helps the body adapt to new or stressful situations. The following 9 facts show the power and versatility of this therapeutic plant.

1. Supports the Brain

As people age, it’s common for age-related brain degradation to happen. The active compounds in Brahmi, known as bacosides, are beginning to be evaluated for their effects on the brain and human health. Some research has shown the compounds in Brahmi to positively influence brain cells that prompt the regeneration of brain tissue. [1] In one animal study, long-term supplementation with bacosides showed therapeutic value against the rapid degeneration associated with Alzheimer’s disease. [2] Hopefully more will continue to explore its potential benefits for brain health.

2. Promotes Liver Health

The brain is not the only organ that benefits from Brahmi’s health-promoting compounds. The liver is the body’s main detoxifying organ, and studies suggest Brahmi may be useful for encouraging liver function following toxin damage. [3] With the daily onslaught of toxins in our environment and food, it’s no wonder so many seek safe, natural compounds that support proper liver function.

3. Protection Against Neonatal Hypoglycemia

When it comes to newborn infants, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) can result in serious and immediate brain damage, inducing future motor and cognitive impairment. Studies have found bacosides to be highly-active compounds that exhibit neuron-protecting effects in hypoglycemic infants. Therefore, many researchers believe that Brahmi may be effective for protecting newborn brains against hypoglycemia-induced brain damage. [4]

4. Positively Impacts Opioid Dependence

Doctors prescribe (and sometimes over-prescribe) opioids, like morphine and oxycodone, for pain management. Although these drugs may reduce pain, their highly-addictive nature is a massive downside as well as the dangerous toxic effect. Seventy-seven percent of chronic pain patients also suffer from depression and face an added risk of addiction. Researchers have discovered that bacosides may be helpful for decreasing the risk for dependence on drugs. [5] [6] In addition, studies indicate that bacosides offer protective benefits for organs commonly affected by opiate toxicity. [7]

5. Fights Systemic Redness and Swelling

Any illness or irritation can cause redness and swelling in the body. No location more dangerous than the brain. Brahmi may be helpful at fighting this. Research supports its use for managing systemic redness in the brain caused by the body’s autoimmune response . [8] Much of the research is ongoing; however, the emerging data offers hope for new therapies in the treatment of chronic discomfort and redness.

6. Encourages Normal Blood Pressure

Brahmi has been shown to increase the utilization of nitric oxide in the body and also appears to encourage vascular muscle function, two benefits that positively influence normal blood pressure. [9] While promoting normal blood pressure is not one of Brahmi’s most well-known uses, the herb may still provide a valuable, natural approach to those seeking this benefit.

7. Strong Antioxidant Activity

Antioxidants… can we get too many of them? Many researchers are evaluating natural plants, herbs, and foods for their antioxidant potential and findings indicate that Brahmi is a good one. It provides protection against oxidative damage, a type of cellular damage caused by free radicals. [10] The herb has also been shown to enhance antioxidant activity in other organs, like the kidneys. [11]

8. Organic is Best…

As with any plant or herb, it’s a good idea to know its source in order to decrease the likelihood of consuming pesticides, GMO’s, and pollutants. If Brahmi has a caveat, it’s that it’s very absorbent and can easily accumulate pollutants and other contaminants, such as arsenic, if grown in or around contaminated areas. In more than one case, Brahmi samples taken from a semi-urban area contained noticeable levels of lead, copper, cadmium, and zinc which exceeded safe thresholds. [12] [13] Conclusion? Only purchase organic or wild crafted Brahmi!

9. …And so is Fresh!

Supplementing with Brahmi

There’s little question that Brahmi is one of the best, all-around tonic herbs available. It also is quite specific in its beneficial effects on brain health
