Certified Organic from Kenya, whole kernels with slight colour variation.

Our producer became a practicer in sustainability itself: organic is as natural for the market leader of macadamia nuts as social commitment, fair trade and value creation in Kenya. Macadamias have been grown in Kenya for generations. However, not on plantations, but in ecological agroforestry systems! The trees grow there on small plots of land between other fruit and vegetable varieties. They provide each other with shade and keep pests at bay, and at the same time the falling leaves ensure humus-rich soil.

These macadamia nuts taste great due to a unique process where they are dried at low temperature and shelled without the use of water which would cause off flavours. This insures quality and enhances sweetness and shelf life. Every single nut is cracked and sorted by hand. This ensures job opportunities as well as produces the most whole and cleanest (no shell bits/dust) kernels. 

*It is difficult to over-eat Macadamia nuts as their enzymes “signal” to the brain to stop eating. People experience this phenomena as: munching with full appetite and noticing that they taste “different”.

Dates have an excellent nutrition profile.

Most of the calories in dates come from carbs. The rest are from a very small amount of protein. Despite their calories, dates contain some important vitamins and minerals in addition to a significant amount of fiber.

A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving provides the following nutrients:

• Calories: 277

• Carbs: 75 grams

• Fiber: 7 grams

• Protein: 2 grams

• Potassium: 20% of the RDI

• Magnesium: 14% of the RDI

• Copper: 18% of the RDI

• Manganese: 15% of the RDI

• Iron: 5% of the RDI

• Vitamin B6: 12% of the RDI

Dates are also high in antioxidants, which may contribute to many of their health benefits.

High in Fiber
With almost 7 grams of fiber in a 3.5-ounce serving, including dates in your diet is a great way to increase your fiber intake.

Fiber can benefit your digestive health by preventing constipation. It promotes regular bowel movements by contributing to the formation of stool.

In one study, 21 people who consumed 7 dates per day for 21 days experienced improvements in stool frequency and had a significant increase in bowel movements compared to when they did not eat dates.

Furthermore, the fiber in dates may be beneficial for blood sugar control. Fiber slows digestion and may help prevent blood sugar levels from spiking too high after eating.For this reason, dates have a low glycemic index (GI), which measures how quickly your blood sugar rises after eating a certain food.

High in Antioxidants
Antioxidants protect your cells from free radicals, which are unstable molecules that may cause harmful reactions in your body and lead to disease.

Compared to similar types of fruit, such as figs and dried plums, dates appear to have the highest antioxidant content.

Here’s an overview of the three most potent antioxidants in dates:

• Flavonoids: Flavonoids are powerful antioxidants that may help reduce inflammation and have been studied for their potential to reduce the risk of diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and certain types of cancer.

• Carotenoids: Carotenoids are proven to promote heart health and may also reduce the risk of eye-related disorders, such as macular degeneration.

• Phenolic acid: Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, phenolic acid may help lower the risk of cancer and heart disease.

May Promote Brain Health
Laboratory studies have found dates to be helpful for lowering inflammatory markers, such as interleukin 6 (IL-6), in the brain. High levels of IL-6 are associated with a higher risk of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Additionally, animal studies have shown dates to be helpful for reducing the activity of amyloid beta proteins, which can form plaques in the brain.

When plaques accumulate in the brain, they may disturb communication between brain cells, which can ultimately lead to brain cell death and Alzheimer’s disease.

One animal study found that mice fed food mixed with dates had significantly better memory and learning ability, as well as less anxiety-related behaviors, compared to those that did not eat them.

The potential brain-boosting properties of dates have been attributed to their content of antioxidants known to reduce inflammation, including flavonoids.

May Promote Natural Labor
Eating these fruits throughout the last few weeks of pregnancy may promote cervical dilation and lower the need for induced labor. They may also be helpful for reducing labor time.

In one study, 69 women who consumed 6 dates per day for 4 weeks prior to their due date were 20% more likely to go into labor naturally and were in labor for significantly less time than those who did not eat them.

Another study of 154 pregnant women found that those who ate dates were much less likely to be induced compared to those who did not.

A third study found similar results in 91 pregnant women who consumed 70–76 grams of dates daily starting the 37th week of pregnancy. They were in active labor for an average of 4 fewer hours than those who did not eat dates.

The role dates may have in pregnancy is likely due to compounds that bind to oxytocin receptors and appear to mimic the effects of oxytocin in the body. Oxytocin is a hormone that causes labor contractions during childbirth.

Additionally, dates contain tannins, which are compounds that have been shown to help facilitate contractions. They are also a good source of natural sugar and calories, which are necessary to maintain energy levels during labor.

Excellent Natural Sweetener
Dates are a source of fructose, which is a natural type of sugar found in fruit.

For this reason, dates are very sweet and also have a subtle caramel-like taste. They make a great sugar substitute in recipes due to the nutrients, fiber and antioxidants that they provide.

The best way to substitute dates for sugar is to make date paste by mixing dates with water in a blender. A rule of thumb is to replace sugar with date paste at a 1:1 ratio.

Other Potential Health Benefits
Dates have been claimed to have a few other health benefits that have not yet been extensively studied.

• Bone health: Dates contain several minerals, including phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium. All of these have been studied for their potential to prevent bone-related conditions like osteoporosis.

• Blood sugar control: Dates have the potential to help due to their low glycemic index, fiber and antioxidants. Thus, eating them may benefit diabetes management.

Banana Powder is made from cooking banana, also commonly referred to as a plantain (Musa paradisiaca), although it's not a true plantain. Musa paradisiaca is a hybrid of a banana and a plantain and has the extra starch of a plantain while still maintaining some sugars for a slightly sweet taste. Musa parardisiaca is commonly used for cooking due to the reduced sweetness in flavor and is the most common plantain found in grocery stores in America.

Banana Powder is loaded with nutrients and is a great source of potassium, an essential nutrient. Bananas are rich in vitamin B6, vitamin C, dietary fiber, and manganese. Banana powder may help support the cardiovascular system, provide energy, boost metabolism, support the liver and kidneys, and maintain healthy nervous system function.

The sprouting rate for these seems to be about 80% to 90%, which is excellent.

  • Days to Sprout: Sprout- 4-5, Microgreen- 7-10
  • Soak Time: 1-2 hours
  • Yield: 1 tbsp of dry seed yields approx. 1 cup of sprouts.

Current scientific research all points to the benefits of eating leafy green vegetables, which in part is due to the tremendous health benefits of Sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is highest in broccoli sprouts; eating a cup of broccoli sprouts will provide the same amount of Sulforaphane of about 25 cups of mature broccoli. 2 tablespoons of seeds will provide you about 8 cups of sprouts (after ~ 5days), that's equivalent to eating about 200 cups of broccoli.

According to one study, Sulforaphane content is highest at around 48h to 72h (soaking time excluded). The sprouts will look tiny at this stage. If you want to put the sprouts in salads, you probably want to wait for 4 to 5 days. We use mason jars plus mesh netting. 2 tablespoons of seeds per jar.

organic buckwheat

Certified Organic and Sproutable, from Canada.

A mainstay of traditional Eastern European cuisine. Organic Buckwheat Groats are the hulled seeds of the buckwheat plant. Buckwheat groats are gluten free seeds from a plant related to rhubarb. The outer husk is pulled away and the grain-like fruit is harvested and eaten. First cultivated in Southeast Asia thousands of years ago, in time buckwheat journeyed west and took root in Eastern Europe, where it became the star of many classic dishes. Buckwheat is very nutritious, making it popular in many nations across the globe. Buckwheat provides complete protein, including all the essential amino acids.

Flax seed is: gluten free, high in omega-3 and fiber, and tastes great.

Flax (Linum usitatissimum) is a beautiful blue flowered plant grown on the plains of Central Canada and the North Central United States. Modern research has taken great interest in flaxseed with study after study confirming that the oil and fiber components of flaxseed have wonderful health benefits.

  • Flaxseed has a high ratio of Linolenic (Omega-3) to Linoleic (omega-6) fatty acids. While many other plant seeds contain a higher ratio of omega-6 fats, flaxseed is the one of the few seeds that contains a much higher ratio of the essential omega-3 fats.
  • Flaxseed oil is one of the richest sources of OMEGA-3 fatty acid, Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) an ESSENTIAL FATTY ACID (EFA). This fatty acid is considered essential, meaning that your body cannot make it but requires it and so must derive all of it from the diet. The average American diet is lacking in this fat. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One serving of Organic Whole Flaxseed provides 9 grms of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Flaxseed is unique in that 48% of its total fat content is omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Flaxseed contains very high amounts of DIETARY FIBER, both SOLUBLE and INSOLUBLE. Flaxseed is 28%-35% fiber, 1/3 of which is soluble, and the other 2/3 insoluble. Soluble fiber also plays an important role in maintaining the “good bacteria” in our bowel, like Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bifidobacteria. Insoluble fiber increases the bulk of stools.
  • Flaxseed is an outstanding source of many essential nutrients, including: proteins, carbohydrates, minerals, folate, vitamin B-6, pantothenic acid, magnesium, potassium, iron, thiamine, copper, zinc, calcium and phosphorus.

PREPARATION & USE OF FLAXSEED
Flaxseed must be finely cut into a meal to get maximum benefits of the OMEGA-3 oil and dietary fiber. We recommend that you buy a coffee grinder and dedicate its use to grinding flax seeds. Once ground, the flaxseeds should be consumed quickly, as the oil inside the seeds oxidizes rapidly.

The recommended daily amount of flaxseeds to eat is about 1–2 Tbsp. The most beneficial amount for maximum nutritional value of ground flaxseed is 2 tablespoons daily. It can be mixed into 10–12 oz. of juice or water. Make sure you use plenty of water when adding flaxseed to your diet. Ground flaxseed can easily be added on top of dishes including: baked products, stir-fry dishes, soup or stews, cereal and yogurt.

Flaxseed is 35–40% oil so a similar amount may be omitted from any recipe requiring oil that also includes ground flaxseed. Similarly, about 1 Tbsp. of ground flaxseed steeped in 3 Tbsp. of water for 2-3 minutes will substitute for one egg in recipes.

These fats stimulate the body’s natural thermogenic system which actually burns fat. The Essential Fatty Acids in Hemp also help muscle recovery and growth.
  • Easy To Digest & Non-Allergenic: Hemp does not contain gluten and is free of the enzyme inhibitor found in soy and other legumes and grains which prevent protein absorption and typically cause gas, bloating and other digestion problems. In addition, there are no known allergies to hemp.

Nigella Black Cumin Seeds

Certified Organic from India.

When it comes to versatility and the power of its health benefits, Nigella seeds (also called black cumin) stand above other botanicals.

A Long History of Therapeutic Use; The black seed of nigella sativa (black cumin seed) has been used for over three thousand years for preventing and treating many different diseases. In ancient texts and historical documents black cumin seed is noted for its therapeutic attributes and ability to support the body in its own natural healing processes. Archeological studies report that black cumin seed seeds have been found in several sites from ancient Egypt, including in the tomb of Tutankhamun. It has been revered as a beauty secret since ancient times as Queen Nefertiti, renowned for her complexion, was, a reportedly a devoted black cumin seed user. Ibri Sina, the Persian physician and philosopher, discussed black cumin seed in the text Canon of Medicine, considered a hallmark publication in the history of human medicine and used as the primary medical text throughout Europe until the 17th century. In it he states that black cumin seed has preventive and restorative features as it “stimulates the body’s energy and helps in recovery from fatigue and dispiritedness.”
 
What conditions can black cumin seed help address?

  • Cancer. Black cumin seed has potent anti-oxidant properties and these are thought to be behind the cancer prevention properties demonstrated in animal studies. In vitro and animal studies also show inhibition and reduction of tumor growth in various types of cancer including blood, breast, colon, pancreatic, liver, lung, skin, kidney, prostate and cervix. There are also demonstrated benefits as an adjunctive to chemotherapy in humans—for instance, black cumin seed shows a potential ability to decrease the incidence of side effects in children with brain tumors who are on chemotherapy. Its active component, thymoquinone, sensitizes brain cancer cells to chemotherapy, making treatment more effective.
  • Heart Disease and Diabetes. Black cumin seed favorably affects several parameters related to heart disease riskincluding lowering total and LDL cholesterol, reducing inflammation, lowering blood pressure, reducing plaque formation. It also reduces blood glucose, as well as diabetic-associated complications such as neuropathy.
  • Infections. Black cumin seed is a potent antimicrobial with the ability to fight bacteria, parasites, fungi and even viruses. It has demonstrated activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), the strain of bacteria that is difficult to treat and resistant to antibiotics. Black cumin seed even reduces viral load and improves other markers in patients with hepatitis C.
  • Neurological Conditions. Black cumin seed has been shown in in vitro and animal studies to be protective of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, depression, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain injury. Learning and memory is also improved in animals given black cumin seed. Anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties are thought to be responsible for this effect.
  • Immune Disorders. Black cumin seed has been shown helpful in autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and rheumatoid arthritis, and also allergic asthma, sinusitis, and eczema. For a deeper dive into the application of black cumin seed for asthma and allergy, evidenced by several human studies, you’ll want to read our recent article by CDP colleagueSezelle Gereau, Functional otolaryngologist: Consider Nigella Sativa for Asthma and Allergy.
  • Pain. Black cumin seed oil, applied topically, is better than moderate dosing of oral acetaminophen (paracetamol) at reducing pain from knee osteoarthritis. Oral black cumin seed oil also has general analgesic effects, according to animal studies.
  • Weight Loss. Supplementation with N. sativa exerts a moderate effect on reduction in body weight, body mass index and waist circumference.

What Form to Take? Seed or Oil? And How Much?
In human clinical trials, dosages of 1-3 grams of black cumin seed powder has been used (orally) for up to 12 months. 2 months is recommended before checking on changes to cholesterol or blood glucose management. Black cumin seed oil is used orally at doses up to 5 mL or 40 mg per kg for up to 8 weeks for therapeutic effects. Topical use, for example for knee osteoarthritis, has included 1 mL applied locally three times per day.

Certified Organic, Kosher, and Gluten-Free Oats from Canada.

Usually oats are heated, so they cannot sprout. These are also called Naked Oats and grow without hulls, so they aren't damaged or killed by de-hulling. Germination Rate: 85-90%.

These oats are grown in fields that are not used in crop rotations for wheat, barley, triticale, rye, or any related species (spelt, etc.) for at least 3 years, and the  majority of our fields have been dedicated gluten free for 10+ years.  All of our facilities and milling equipment are dedicated to gluten-free crops.   In addition to these rigorous standards, we test our oats for gluten contamination after harvest and again after milling.  We test our oats using an ELISA enzyme test which is approved for gluten-free food manufacturers.  Our oats consistently test negative for gluten – below the detectable level of 10 ppm.

Use for Oat Milk, Milling, or Rolled Oats. For fermented oats: soak for 1 day, dry, roll and have with your favourite Nut Milk.

Fermented Rolled Organic Oats

Certified Organic and Kosher, from Canada.

Fermented oats are tasty, more nutritious and are easier to digest than regular oats. Fermented, meaning these oats have been soaked for approimately 5 days and then dried at a low temperature. This effectively reduces the phytic acid or enzyme inhbitors to a very low level. According to Weston Price this is the way the Scots used to eat them as a staple which afforded excellent health. This way the minerals are more available for the body to use. These Oats are not processed with any other products containing gluten, so to the best of our knowledge are gluten-free.

Amber Quinoa is Grown by Prairie Quinoa in Manitoba.

The Incas of South America referred to quinoa as the “Mother Grain,” and considered it to be sacred. They grew quinoa in the high altitude of the Andes from present Educator, Peru, Bolivia, and Chile & Northern Argentina. There are 3200 varieties of quinoa in Bolivia and 2400 varieties in Peru. It is a small seed about the size of millet, very high in protein and is closer to the United Nation’s FAO ideal balance for amino acids than any other common cereal grain. It is particularly important for vegetarian diets and in correcting deficiencies in legume diets.

Quinoa is high in calcium, phosphorus, iron, vitamin E and some of the B vitamins. The health and nutritional benefits of Quinoa include: Quinoa is high in protein — its protein balance is similar to milk and has more protein compared to rice, millet or wheat. Quinoa is a good source of riboflavin — riboflavin helps reduce the frequency attacks in migraine sufferers by improving the energy metabolism within the brain and muscle cells. The saponins from quinoa – present in minute amounts in edible quinoa – are used to promote healing of skin injuries in South America, making it a good antiseptic. Quinoa is alkaline-forming, although it is not strongly alkaline-forming, it is comparable to wild rice, amaranth, and sprouted grains. It only has 172 calories per ¼ cup of dry quinoa. Since it is not related to wheat or grain, it’s gluten-free. Millions are discovering they feel better and lose weight when they reduce gluten grains or at least wheat products in their diet. It is a complex carbohydrate with low glycemic index – again it is good for weight management.

*This Quinoa is not certified organic but the grower claims they have never used glysophate and lab testing has found it clean of any pecticide residue in previous years.

Certified Organic from Peru. 

*Using a newly invented process, our supplier was able to create a cacao powder with a minimum 28% fat! Normal cacao powder has a fat content between 10-13%. 

Made from cacao beans from a few different regions in Peru, like San Martin, but predominantly from a variety in the Cuzco region called Chuncho. Chuncho cacao is the cacao varietal that the Incan and Pre-Incan civilizations used. This cacao varietal grows natively in the highlands of the Cuzco Andes at around 1400meters above sea level. No other cacao grows at such a high altitude, enabling it to produce one of the purest, most complex and concentrated phytochemical and flavor profiles, which is also richer in cacao butter. Domesticated by the Machiguenga people, ancestral inhabitants of this region, the cacao is fermented in its native habitat within wooden boxes. Chuncho cacao is prized for its very low astringency, and flavour profile of red fruits and floral notes. This Cacao powder will be low in cadmium (<0.8ppm).

The raw cacao beans are fermented, gently heated to bring out the fine flavours, dried and milled, and then hydraulically pressed to seperate the fat content. Cacao is naturally high in several minerals, especially manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, iron and zinc. In addition to minerals, cocoa also contains some caffeine and theobromine. Also known as Raw Cocoa Powder.

Cat's Claw Bark Powder (uncaria tomentosa) is one of the medicinal herbs from the Amazon rainforest and other South and Central America. This ancient plant enjoys a long history of yielding curative properties for joint disorders, treating viral infections, and improving immune function. Some indigenous tribes of South America even consider cat’s claw a sacred plant with spiritual significance. It was used to eliminate disturbances between the spirit and the body that were thought to be the reason for physical ailments. So, while there are many historical claims and anecdotal evidence to back cat’s claw’s potency, what does scientific information have to say about this rainforest vine? Let’s find out in our detailed cat’s claw review.

What is Cat’s Claw? The botanical name for cat’s claw is Uncaria. Uncaria has two prominent species, uncaria tomentosa and uncaria guianensis. Both herbs have different chemical structures with varying active compounds. And thus, they present different medicinal and therapeutic effects. Of the two, cat’s claw (uncaria tomentosa) is the better-researched species and seems to offer more health benefits than uncaria guianensis. The plant gets its name as its thorns resemble a cat’s claws. The outer bark of the plant has long fissures, whereas the inner bark has fibers. Inside, there is a watery sap possessing an astringent taste. The plant’s bark and root are where its therapeutic effects come from, and it gets processed into commercial preparations.

Main compounds  Cat’s claw contains several compounds, including the following: Alkaloids are naturally occurring constituents that have excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Proanthocyanidins are polyphenols that may help fight against cancer and possess anti-aging potential. H2 is another polyphenol that seems to work on reducing brain plaque, as seen in animal models. Glycosides are organic compounds of plant origins that possess anticancer and antitumor properties along with other biological effects. Tannins are phenolic compounds that may prevent diseases by providing antimicrobial and antioxidant benefits. Flavonoids are phytonutrients that help regulate cellular activity and fight off free radicals, causing oxidative stress on the body.

How Does Cat’s Claw Extract Work In The Brain? Cat’s claw may boost memory, learning, and mood. It offers a few different mechanisms that can help promote cognitive skills and improve overall brain health.

Mechanisms of Action Researchers claim that Uncaria Tomentosa increases brain-derived neurotrophic factor while controlling N-methyl-D-aspartate activity and shielding DNA content through its inflammation-fighting effects. Now, those are a lot of acronyms in one sentence, so let’s look at what they mean first. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor that promotes the survival of nerve cells by assisting their growth, maturation, and maintenance. N-methyl-D-aspartate is an amino acid. Overstimulation of NMDA receptors in the brain is involved in various mental health illnesses involving memory deficits like Alzheimer’s disease. Administering cat’s claw root for its brain-boosting effects shows that oral supplementation can potentially improve short-term memory, verbal, recall, and executive functions.

Works As Neuroprotectant Cat’s claw extracts also offer neuroprotective properties as it contains antioxidants to protect the brain from free radicals that may otherwise cause cell death. Because it can preserve DNA integrity and inhibit plaque formation in the brain, it goes a long way to care for brain health. What Are The Health Benefits of Cat’s Claw? Cat’s claw contains the right blend of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Also, some research indicates that this healing root has immune-modulating mechanisms that can revive and bolster an impaired immune system.

Based on these promising health benefits, cat’s claw extracts can do the following:

Improves Memory and Cognitive Performance Cat’s claw is considered a nootropic as it creates a synergy in the brain that reduces inflammation, promotes antioxidant activity, and corrects damage caused by free radicals. Together, these processes can lower the incidence of depression while bolstering focus, cognition, and information processing. Various clinical trials on cat’s claw extracts and the brain show it to cause an inhibition of beta-amyloid plaque formation. It dissolves these plaques that would otherwise affect memory.

Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory (Neuroprotection) Cat’s claw possesses antioxidants and the ability to fight inflammation. The antioxidants work to ward off damage caused by free radicals, while inflammation can cause depression and dementia. In a neuroprotective capacity, the bark may help reduce the formation of plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Plus, its ability to repair DNA in the brain makes it a stellar neuroprotective agent. It can help reduce inflammation in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis pain and stiffness, and these effects extend to the brain and neural network.

Boosts The Immune System Cat’s claw may also stimulate the immune system as part of its health benefits. Animal and human studies seem to validate this, with one study indicating an increase in white blood cell count. White blood cells are part of the body’s immune system, helping the body fight infections and other diseases. When study participants received 700 mg of cat’s claw daily for two months before being vaccinated for pneumonia, there was an increase in their white blood cell count. Another study with animal models investigating how cat’s claw may stimulate the immune system presented similar findings after subjects received cat’s claw extract for six weeks.

Relieves Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis This South American vine has perhaps received the most significant attention in treating health issues like rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Given its history of treating inflammatory diseases by the tribal people of South America, the practice carried over and is considered a non-pharmacological way of improving rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis symptoms. A few preliminary studies have investigated the effects of using cat’s claw for both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Studies have looked at one of its compounds called pentacyclic oxindole alkaloid that possesses the potential to fight inflammation. For osteoarthritis, taking a daily dose of 100 mg for four weeks showed better pain relief and overall symptom improvement than the people taking a placebo. For rheumatoid arthritis, researchers administered 20 mg supplements 3 times a day for 24 weeks. Findings showed people taking cat’s claw extract to present a more significant reduction in pain than their placebo counterparts.

Helps With Treatment of Lyme Disease Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that spreads through the bite of black-legged ticks. The condition triggers an initial rash that can then cause other varying symptoms of the disorder. Considered a possible treatment for the infection, a supplement with cat’s claw may help with symptom management of Lyme disease. One study recruited people with a confirmed diagnosis and a history of the infection for 10 years with progressive symptom deterioration. Participants received cat’s claw supplementation while reducing or discontinuing other pharmaceutical use. At the end of the 26-week trial period, people using the extract reported greater improvements in managing symptoms such as joint and muscle pain, headaches, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and digestive distress.

Has Anti Cancer Properties Preliminary test-tube studies suggest that the pentacyclic oxindole alkaloid content in uncaria tomentosa may have some anti-tumor potential. Research indicates that pentacyclic oxindole alkaloid may be toxic to specific types of cancer cells. One earlier, in vivo study suggested that cat’s claw may prevent the growth of cancerous cells in breast cancer patients by having an anti-mutagenic and anti-proliferative effect on cancerous cells. Another study investigated the effects of the bark on leukemia. Four of the alkaloids found in this healing vine demonstrated the ability to restrict leukemia cell proliferation. Two of the alkaloids, namely uncarine F and pteropodine, were found most effective in inhibiting leukemia cell growth. They also induced affected cells to sustain apoptosis or programmed cell death. Another more recent study indicated that using cat’s claw extract for people with advanced cancer may help their quality of life and lower cancer-related fatigue (CRF). On another note, taking cat’s claw may also help with DNA repair often caused by chemotherapy damage and cancer drugs. One earlier 2001 study examined the effects of cat’s claw extract on people receiving chemotherapy treatment. Uncaria Tomentosa extract was administered for 8 weeks, showing a reduction in DNA damage to affected cells. Also, people receiving cat’s claw supplements exhibited an increase in white blood cell count generation. This finding is significant as chemotherapy typically lowers white blood cell counts, increasing the risk of infection. All this information shows promising evidence regarding cancer treatment, but they are still few and far between. More research is still needed to use safely and effectively use the bark for treating cancer.

Lowers Blood Pressure Cat’s claw is considered a treatment for lowering blood pressure in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Another variety of cat’s claw called Uncaria Rhynchophylla prevents platelet aggregation and blood clotting. With a mechanism similar to blood thinners, it can help lower blood pressure and improve circulation. This supplement may also prevent plaque and arterial blood clot formation. Alkaloids are known as hirsutines in cat’s claw, act as calcium channel blockers, blocking calcium from permeating the walls of the heart and blood vessels. The same can also widen and relax blood vessels, allowing this activity to promote blood flow healthily.

How To Take Cat’s Claw Traditional uses of cat’s claw included boiling the root or bark for an hour or so and drinking it up as a concoction. To overcome the intense flavor, you have the option of mixing in some honey to make it more palatable.

Dosage: There are no recommended dosage guidelines for using cat’s claw, and any recommendations typically come from the manufacturer. 500mg - 1000mg daily should be a reasonable dose based on research results. Or 1tsp, 1 to 2 times per day. 

How long does it take for Cat’s Claw to work? Cat’s claw is one of those nootropics that take a bit of time to show effects. Some studies indicate it takes up to eight weeks for cat’s claw to yield its full effects. Some others show that managing symptoms of conditions like knee pain, for instance, may provide relief within a week of starting supplementation. What Are The Side Effects of Cat’s Claw? Many of the evidence gathered for the benefits of cat’s claw comes from test-tube studies, small-scale clinical trials or case reports, and research is done on animals. In this sense, a lot more information is still required to treat severe health problems. However, most of the published clinical trials have ranged from four weeks to a year-long with significantly few side effects. Evidence shows the most common complaints to be symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, or an upset stomach. This probably happens because cat’s claw possesses a fair amount of tannins and only occurs when the extract is consumed in quantities exceeding the recommended dosage amounts. People with certain health conditions should not use cat’s claw supplements. This includes anyone with an autoimmune disease, blood pressure concerns, stomach ulcers, leukemia, or kidney problems. The herb can slow blood clotting, so people with bleeding disorders or others using anticoagulants should not take a cat’s claw supplement. Anyone scheduled for surgery should also stop taking cat’s claw two weeks before their surgery date. The herb can present drug interactions, so people using certain medications should not use cat’s claw. Common drug interactions include medicines for high blood pressure and immune-modulating drugs. You should also talk to your doctor first if you have any ongoing health condition, illness, or diseases like systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson’s disease.

Conclusion Cat’s claw is one of the best natural treatments for boosting immunity, fighting infections, treating arthritis, and lowering blood pressure. It is a time-honored remedy with minor side effects unless you have health issues that conflict with its use. After looking at the strengths and limitations of this South American vine, we feel that it has a lot to offer in diverse areas of healing. So, if you don’t have medical conditions that require taking medications, we would recommend it to be a supplement worth trying out.

FAQs Can you take cat’s claw every day? Cat’s claw is safe to take every day as long as you don’t have any of the specific health conditions mentioned above. You should also not take supplements if you are taking certain medications for your conditions.

Is cat’s claw antiviral? Cat’s claw possesses antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial features as it has been used successfully to treat infections like Lyme disease.

Does cat’s claw help you sleep? Cat’s claw is not a sleep aid per se, but it does ward off fatigue. This mechanism can make it easier for you to fall asleep and get a good rest.

Is cat’s claw good for anxiety? Cat’s claw can boost tryptophan levels which increases serotonin and may yield a calming effect.

Much scientific research has been initiated to validate what naturopathic practitioners have known for years: It can stop heart attacks, nourish the heart with vital nutrients, remove plaque from the arteries, help rebuild flesh destroyed or harmed by frosbite, heal hemorrhoids, re-build stomach tissue, heal stomach ulcers, and can mitigate the most wrenching of diseases.

Continuing, it is great for circulation, can rebuild blood cells, lowers cholesterol, emulsifies triglycerides, removes toxins from the bloodstream and improves overall heart health. It's even a great insect repellent. As mentioned, it can also heal ulcers, which seems contradictory considering its native calidity or heat.

It immediately equalizes blood pressure in your system, shrinks hemorrhoids, and heals the gall bladder. It can be used as a diuretic as well helping in elimination both with urine and with the built-up fecal matter in the intestines.

This common herb is capable of mobilizing mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum in both bones and the central nervous system. It is probably the only effective agent in mobilizing mercury stored in the inracellular space (attached to mitochondria, tubulin, liposomes etc) and in the nucleus of the cell (reversing DNA damage of mercury). Because cilantro mobilizes more toxins then it can carry out of the body, it may flood the connective tissue (where the nerves reside) with metals, that were previously stored in safer hiding places. This process is called re- toxification. It can easily be avoided by simultaneously giving an intestinal toxin-absorbing agent. Our definite choice is the algal organism chlorella. A recent animal study demonstrated rapid removal of aluminum from the skeleton superior to any known other detox agent. 


Dosage and application:  Make tea with 1 Tbsp of dried cilantro, 2 times /day in the beginning; drink tea just before a meal OR 30 minutes after taking Chlorella.

Gradually increase dose to 3 Tbsp, 3 times/day, for full benefit. During the initial phase of the detox cilantro should be given 1 week on, 2 –3 weeks off. 


*1 Tbsp dried = 4 Tbsp fresh.

(cilantro causes the gallbadder to dump bile - containing the excreted neurotoxins - into the small intestine. The bile -release occurs naturally as we are eating and is much enhanced by cilantro. If no chlorella is taken, most neurotoxins are reabsorbed on the way down the small intestine by the abundant nerve endings of the enteric nervous system).

Certified Organic Black Turtle Beans from Argentina.

Also known as black-seeded beans or simply black beans, turtle beans are beans that are distinguished by their black skin over a light tan or cream flesh. Turtle beans tend to be somewhat smaller than other types of beans, and offer a slightly sweet taste to any recipe that calls for the inclusion of the beans.

Native to South America, the beans are now grown in several parts of Mexico and the Caribbean, and are often included in many different Mexican and Latin American recipes. The beans should be allowed to soak overnight for the best results in terms of consistency. Before cooking the turtle beans, they should be thoroughly drained, and rinsed in a colander. There are a number of different ways to season the beans, including the use of a small amount of salt and a little bit of olive oil.

Nigella Black Cumin Seeds

Certified Organic from India.

When it comes to versatility and the power of its health benefits, Nigella seeds (also called black cumin) stand above other botanicals.

A Long History of Therapeutic Use; The black seed of nigella sativa (black cumin seed) has been used for over three thousand years for preventing and treating many different diseases. In ancient texts and historical documents black cumin seed is noted for its therapeutic attributes and ability to support the body in its own natural healing processes. Archeological studies report that black cumin seed seeds have been found in several sites from ancient Egypt, including in the tomb of Tutankhamun. It has been revered as a beauty secret since ancient times as Queen Nefertiti, renowned for her complexion, was, a reportedly a devoted black cumin seed user. Ibri Sina, the Persian physician and philosopher, discussed black cumin seed in the text Canon of Medicine, considered a hallmark publication in the history of human medicine and used as the primary medical text throughout Europe until the 17th century. In it he states that black cumin seed has preventive and restorative features as it “stimulates the body’s energy and helps in recovery from fatigue and dispiritedness.”
 
What conditions can black cumin seed help address?

  • Cancer. Black cumin seed has potent anti-oxidant properties and these are thought to be behind the cancer prevention properties demonstrated in animal studies. In vitro and animal studies also show inhibition and reduction of tumor growth in various types of cancer including blood, breast, colon, pancreatic, liver, lung, skin, kidney, prostate and cervix. There are also demonstrated benefits as an adjunctive to chemotherapy in humans—for instance, black cumin seed shows a potential ability to decrease the incidence of side effects in children with brain tumors who are on chemotherapy. Its active component, thymoquinone, sensitizes brain cancer cells to chemotherapy, making treatment more effective.
  • Heart Disease and Diabetes. Black cumin seed favorably affects several parameters related to heart disease riskincluding lowering total and LDL cholesterol, reducing inflammation, lowering blood pressure, reducing plaque formation. It also reduces blood glucose, as well as diabetic-associated complications such as neuropathy.
  • Infections. Black cumin seed is a potent antimicrobial with the ability to fight bacteria, parasites, fungi and even viruses. It has demonstrated activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), the strain of bacteria that is difficult to treat and resistant to antibiotics. Black cumin seed even reduces viral load and improves other markers in patients with hepatitis C.
  • Neurological Conditions. Black cumin seed has been shown in in vitro and animal studies to be protective of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, depression, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain injury. Learning and memory is also improved in animals given black cumin seed. Anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties are thought to be responsible for this effect.
  • Immune Disorders. Black cumin seed has been shown helpful in autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and rheumatoid arthritis, and also allergic asthma, sinusitis, and eczema. For a deeper dive into the application of black cumin seed for asthma and allergy, evidenced by several human studies, you’ll want to read our recent article by CDP colleagueSezelle Gereau, Functional otolaryngologist: Consider Nigella Sativa for Asthma and Allergy.
  • Pain. Black cumin seed oil, applied topically, is better than moderate dosing of oral acetaminophen (paracetamol) at reducing pain from knee osteoarthritis. Oral black cumin seed oil also has general analgesic effects, according to animal studies.
  • Weight Loss. Supplementation with N. sativa exerts a moderate effect on reduction in body weight, body mass index and waist circumference.

What Form to Take? Seed or Oil? And How Much?
In human clinical trials, dosages of 1-3 grams of black cumin seed powder has been used (orally) for up to 12 months. 2 months is recommended before checking on changes to cholesterol or blood glucose management. Black cumin seed oil is used orally at doses up to 5 mL or 40 mg per kg for up to 8 weeks for therapeutic effects. Topical use, for example for knee osteoarthritis, has included 1 mL applied locally three times per day.

Wild-Harvested from Peru.

Cat's Claw Bark Powder (uncaria tomentosa) is one of the medicinal herbs from the Amazon rainforest and other South and Central America. This ancient plant enjoys a long history of yielding curative properties for joint disorders, treating viral infections, and improving immune function. Some indigenous tribes of South America even consider cat’s claw a sacred plant with spiritual significance. It was used to eliminate disturbances between the spirit and the body that were thought to be the reason for physical ailments. So, while there are many historical claims and anecdotal evidence to back cat’s claw’s potency, what does scientific information have to say about this rainforest vine? Let’s find out in our detailed cat’s claw review.

What is Cat’s Claw? The botanical name for cat’s claw is Uncaria. Uncaria has two prominent species, uncaria tomentosa and uncaria guianensis. Both herbs have different chemical structures with varying active compounds. And thus, they present different medicinal and therapeutic effects. Of the two, cat’s claw (uncaria tomentosa) is the better-researched species and seems to offer more health benefits than uncaria guianensis. The plant gets its name as its thorns resemble a cat’s claws. The outer bark of the plant has long fissures, whereas the inner bark has fibers. Inside, there is a watery sap possessing an astringent taste. The plant’s bark and root are where its therapeutic effects come from, and it gets processed into commercial preparations.

Main compounds  Cat’s claw contains several compounds, including the following: Alkaloids are naturally occurring constituents that have excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Proanthocyanidins are polyphenols that may help fight against cancer and possess anti-aging potential. H2 is another polyphenol that seems to work on reducing brain plaque, as seen in animal models. Glycosides are organic compounds of plant origins that possess anticancer and antitumor properties along with other biological effects. Tannins are phenolic compounds that may prevent diseases by providing antimicrobial and antioxidant benefits. Flavonoids are phytonutrients that help regulate cellular activity and fight off free radicals, causing oxidative stress on the body.

How Does Cat’s Claw Extract Work In The Brain? Cat’s claw may boost memory, learning, and mood. It offers a few different mechanisms that can help promote cognitive skills and improve overall brain health.

Mechanisms of Action Researchers claim that Uncaria Tomentosa increases brain-derived neurotrophic factor while controlling N-methyl-D-aspartate activity and shielding DNA content through its inflammation-fighting effects. Now, those are a lot of acronyms in one sentence, so let’s look at what they mean first. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor that promotes the survival of nerve cells by assisting their growth, maturation, and maintenance. N-methyl-D-aspartate is an amino acid. Overstimulation of NMDA receptors in the brain is involved in various mental health illnesses involving memory deficits like Alzheimer’s disease. Administering cat’s claw root for its brain-boosting effects shows that oral supplementation can potentially improve short-term memory, verbal, recall, and executive functions.

Works As Neuroprotectant Cat’s claw extracts also offer neuroprotective properties as it contains antioxidants to protect the brain from free radicals that may otherwise cause cell death. Because it can preserve DNA integrity and inhibit plaque formation in the brain, it goes a long way to care for brain health. What Are The Health Benefits of Cat’s Claw? Cat’s claw contains the right blend of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Also, some research indicates that this healing root has immune-modulating mechanisms that can revive and bolster an impaired immune system.

Based on these promising health benefits, cat’s claw extracts can do the following:

Improves Memory and Cognitive Performance Cat’s claw is considered a nootropic as it creates a synergy in the brain that reduces inflammation, promotes antioxidant activity, and corrects damage caused by free radicals. Together, these processes can lower the incidence of depression while bolstering focus, cognition, and information processing. Various clinical trials on cat’s claw extracts and the brain show it to cause an inhibition of beta-amyloid plaque formation. It dissolves these plaques that would otherwise affect memory.

Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory (Neuroprotection) Cat’s claw possesses antioxidants and the ability to fight inflammation. The antioxidants work to ward off damage caused by free radicals, while inflammation can cause depression and dementia. In a neuroprotective capacity, the bark may help reduce the formation of plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Plus, its ability to repair DNA in the brain makes it a stellar neuroprotective agent. It can help reduce inflammation in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis pain and stiffness, and these effects extend to the brain and neural network.

Boosts The Immune System Cat’s claw may also stimulate the immune system as part of its health benefits. Animal and human studies seem to validate this, with one study indicating an increase in white blood cell count. White blood cells are part of the body’s immune system, helping the body fight infections and other diseases. When study participants received 700 mg of cat’s claw daily for two months before being vaccinated for pneumonia, there was an increase in their white blood cell count. Another study with animal models investigating how cat’s claw may stimulate the immune system presented similar findings after subjects received cat’s claw extract for six weeks.

Relieves Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis This South American vine has perhaps received the most significant attention in treating health issues like rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Given its history of treating inflammatory diseases by the tribal people of South America, the practice carried over and is considered a non-pharmacological way of improving rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis symptoms. A few preliminary studies have investigated the effects of using cat’s claw for both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Studies have looked at one of its compounds called pentacyclic oxindole alkaloid that possesses the potential to fight inflammation. For osteoarthritis, taking a daily dose of 100 mg for four weeks showed better pain relief and overall symptom improvement than the people taking a placebo. For rheumatoid arthritis, researchers administered 20 mg supplements 3 times a day for 24 weeks. Findings showed people taking cat’s claw extract to present a more significant reduction in pain than their placebo counterparts.

Helps With Treatment of Lyme Disease Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that spreads through the bite of black-legged ticks. The condition triggers an initial rash that can then cause other varying symptoms of the disorder. Considered a possible treatment for the infection, a supplement with cat’s claw may help with symptom management of Lyme disease. One study recruited people with a confirmed diagnosis and a history of the infection for 10 years with progressive symptom deterioration. Participants received cat’s claw supplementation while reducing or discontinuing other pharmaceutical use. At the end of the 26-week trial period, people using the extract reported greater improvements in managing symptoms such as joint and muscle pain, headaches, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and digestive distress.

Has Anti Cancer Properties Preliminary test-tube studies suggest that the pentacyclic oxindole alkaloid content in uncaria tomentosa may have some anti-tumor potential. Research indicates that pentacyclic oxindole alkaloid may be toxic to specific types of cancer cells. One earlier, in vivo study suggested that cat’s claw may prevent the growth of cancerous cells in breast cancer patients by having an anti-mutagenic and anti-proliferative effect on cancerous cells. Another study investigated the effects of the bark on leukemia. Four of the alkaloids found in this healing vine demonstrated the ability to restrict leukemia cell proliferation. Two of the alkaloids, namely uncarine F and pteropodine, were found most effective in inhibiting leukemia cell growth. They also induced affected cells to sustain apoptosis or programmed cell death. Another more recent study indicated that using cat’s claw extract for people with advanced cancer may help their quality of life and lower cancer-related fatigue (CRF). On another note, taking cat’s claw may also help with DNA repair often caused by chemotherapy damage and cancer drugs. One earlier 2001 study examined the effects of cat’s claw extract on people receiving chemotherapy treatment. Uncaria Tomentosa extract was administered for 8 weeks, showing a reduction in DNA damage to affected cells. Also, people receiving cat’s claw supplements exhibited an increase in white blood cell count generation. This finding is significant as chemotherapy typically lowers white blood cell counts, increasing the risk of infection. All this information shows promising evidence regarding cancer treatment, but they are still few and far between. More research is still needed to use safely and effectively use the bark for treating cancer.

Lowers Blood Pressure Cat’s claw is considered a treatment for lowering blood pressure in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Another variety of cat’s claw called Uncaria Rhynchophylla prevents platelet aggregation and blood clotting. With a mechanism similar to blood thinners, it can help lower blood pressure and improve circulation. This supplement may also prevent plaque and arterial blood clot formation. Alkaloids are known as hirsutines in cat’s claw, act as calcium channel blockers, blocking calcium from permeating the walls of the heart and blood vessels. The same can also widen and relax blood vessels, allowing this activity to promote blood flow healthily.

How To Take Cat’s Claw Traditional uses of cat’s claw included boiling the root or bark for an hour or so and drinking it up as a concoction. To overcome the intense flavor, you have the option of mixing in some honey to make it more palatable.

Dosage: There are no recommended dosage guidelines for using cat’s claw, and any recommendations typically come from the manufacturer. 500mg - 1000mg daily should be a reasonable dose based on research results. Or 1tsp, 1 to 2 times per day. 

How long does it take for Cat’s Claw to work? Cat’s claw is one of those nootropics that take a bit of time to show effects. Some studies indicate it takes up to eight weeks for cat’s claw to yield its full effects. Some others show that managing symptoms of conditions like knee pain, for instance, may provide relief within a week of starting supplementation. What Are The Side Effects of Cat’s Claw? Many of the evidence gathered for the benefits of cat’s claw comes from test-tube studies, small-scale clinical trials or case reports, and research is done on animals. In this sense, a lot more information is still required to treat severe health problems. However, most of the published clinical trials have ranged from four weeks to a year-long with significantly few side effects. Evidence shows the most common complaints to be symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, or an upset stomach. This probably happens because cat’s claw possesses a fair amount of tannins and only occurs when the extract is consumed in quantities exceeding the recommended dosage amounts. People with certain health conditions should not use cat’s claw supplements. This includes anyone with an autoimmune disease, blood pressure concerns, stomach ulcers, leukemia, or kidney problems. The herb can slow blood clotting, so people with bleeding disorders or others using anticoagulants should not take a cat’s claw supplement. Anyone scheduled for surgery should also stop taking cat’s claw two weeks before their surgery date. The herb can present drug interactions, so people using certain medications should not use cat’s claw. Common drug interactions include medicines for high blood pressure and immune-modulating drugs. You should also talk to your doctor first if you have any ongoing health condition, illness, or diseases like systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson’s disease.

Conclusion Cat’s claw is one of the best natural treatments for boosting immunity, fighting infections, treating arthritis, and lowering blood pressure. It is a time-honored remedy with minor side effects unless you have health issues that conflict with its use. After looking at the strengths and limitations of this South American vine, we feel that it has a lot to offer in diverse areas of healing. So, if you don’t have medical conditions that require taking medications, we would recommend it to be a supplement worth trying out.

FAQs Can you take cat’s claw every day? Cat’s claw is safe to take every day as long as you don’t have any of the specific health conditions mentioned above. You should also not take supplements if you are taking certain medications for your conditions.

Is cat’s claw antiviral? Cat’s claw possesses antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial features as it has been used successfully to treat infections like Lyme disease.

Does cat’s claw help you sleep? Cat’s claw is not a sleep aid per se, but it does ward off fatigue. This mechanism can make it easier for you to fall asleep and get a good rest.

Is cat’s claw good for anxiety? Cat’s claw can boost tryptophan levels which increases serotonin and may yield a calming effect.

This common herb is capable of mobilizing mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum in both bones and the central nervous system. It is probably the only effective agent in mobilizing mercury stored in the inracellular space (attached to mitochondria, tubulin, liposomes etc) and in the nucleus of the cell (reversing DNA damage of mercury). Because cilantro mobilizes more toxins then it can carry out of the body, it may flood the connective tissue (where the nerves reside) with metals, that were previously stored in safer hiding places. This process is called re- toxification. It can easily be avoided by simultaneously giving an intestinal toxin-absorbing agent. Our definite choice is the algal organism chlorella. A recent animal study demonstrated rapid removal of aluminum from the skeleton superior to any known other detox agent. 


Dosage and application:  Make tea with 1 Tbsp of dried cilantro, 2 times /day in the beginning; drink tea just before a meal OR 30 minutes after taking Chlorella.

Gradually increase dose to 3 Tbsp, 3 times/day, for full benefit. During the initial phase of the detox cilantro should be given 1 week on, 2 –3 weeks off. 


*1 Tbsp dried = 4 Tbsp fresh.

(cilantro causes the gallbadder to dump bile - containing the excreted neurotoxins - into the small intestine. The bile -release occurs naturally as we are eating and is much enhanced by cilantro. If no chlorella is taken, most neurotoxins are reabsorbed on the way down the small intestine by the abundant nerve endings of the enteric nervous system).

“If we can create a more suitable intestinal environment for more beneficial bacteria, and repopulate the gut with colonizing probiotics that will rebuild a healthy microbiome, this is a great step towards digestive health and self-sufficiency without taking lifelong probiotics.” Excerpt From: Douillard, John. “Eat Wheat: A Scientific and Clinically-Proven Approach to Safely Bringing Wheat and Dairy Back Into Your Diet."

The following is a 2-step comprehensive plan for restoring gut health:
1. Support intestinal mucus membranes by bringing your elimination back into balance with this soluble-fiber tea made from a slippery elm, licorice root, and marshmallow root mixture to create the best possible environment for healthy microbes to thrive.
2. Introduce healthy, colonizing probiotics (Gutpro/MegaSpore) for a few months—instead of the rest of your life with transient probiotics—to help establish new beneficial, permanent bacterial residents to proliferate in your gut and enhance your health and digestion.
 
Directions:
1. Soak 3 or 4 tablespoons of the pre-mixed herbs in 2 quarts of water overnight.  (Soaking overnight is not mandatory, but it gives you a stronger decoction.)
3. Boil the mixture down to 1/2 quart in the morning.
4. Strain the mixture through a metal strainer, using a large spoon to push it through.
5. Save the liquid and discard the herbs. (This should make 2 cups).
6. Take 1 tablespoon of the liquid every 2 hours on an empty stomach for 1 month, and sometimes for 2 months if needed.

 
Note: If there is an overgrowth of undesirable bacteria in the small and large intestines, There is clinical success adding a beneficial yeast called Saccharomyces Boulardii, which has been shown to knock out undesirable yeast and bacteria in the digestive tract.

Ashwagandha from India

Ashwagandha is a powerful plant; It is a member of the Solanaceae family with over 4,000 years of traditional use in its native India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.

Ashwagandha is classified as a Medharasayan, which is the Ayurvedic category of foods and nutrients that promote learning and memory retrieval. Sometimes referred to as “Indian Ginseng,” it is traditionally used in conditions of debility, emaciation, impotence, and premature aging. The translation of Ashwagandha roughly is “the smell and strength of a horse”, alluding to its aphrodisiac properties. This plant is also considered a Tonic and an Adaptogen. Due to the potential benefits of ashwagandha in sleep, it is used to help promote normal sleep patterns and encourage a healthy inflammatory response.

1. Reduces Stress and Anxiety: Researchers have reported that Ashwagandha blocked the stress pathway in the brains of rats by regulating chemical signaling in the nervous system. In a 60-day study in 64 people with chronic stress, those in the group that supplemented with ashwagandha reported a 69% reduction in anxiety and insomnia, on average, compared with 11% in the placebo group. In another 6-week study, 88% of people who took ashwagandha reported a reduction in anxiety, compared with 50% of those who took a placebo.

2. Anti-Cancer Properties: Several studies have shown ashwagandha contains compounds that may help fight certain types of cancer. Researchers aren’t sure how as of yet, but extracts in the herb seem to limit or inhibit the activity of cancer cells in breast, colon, prostate, ovarian, lung, and brain cancers. It does the same for thyroid, gastrointestinal, cervix, and skin (melanoma) cancers. Ashwagandha is also generally considered safe to use with traditional cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation. Some experts say it may ease certain side effects, like a weak immune system. However, most of these studies have been done on cancer cells specifically or animals with cancer, and not humans.

3. Reduces Cortisol Levels: Cortisol is widely known as a stress hormone given that your adrenal glands release it in response to stress as well as when your blood sugar levels get too low. In one study in chronically stressed adults, those who supplemented with ashwagandha had significantly greater reductions in cortisol compared with the control group. Those taking the highest dose experienced a 30% reduction, on average.

4. Reduces Blood Sugar: Several studies have shown that ashwagandha reduces blood sugar levels. In a 4-week study in people with schizophrenia, those treated with ashwagandha had an average reduction in fasting blood sugar levels of 13.5 mg/dL, compared with 4.5 mg/dL in those who received a placebo.

5. Reduces Inflammation: Several animal studies have shown that ashwagandha helps decrease inflammation. Studies in humans have found that it increases the activity of natural killer cells, which are immune cells that fight infection and help you stay healthy. It has also been shown to decrease markers of inflammation, such as C-reactive protein (CRP). This marker is linked to an increased risk of heart disease. In one controlled study, the group who took 250 mg of standardized ashwagandha extract daily had a 36% decrease in CRP, on average, compared with a 6% decrease in the placebo group.

6. Increases Testosterone in Men In a study containing 75 infertile men, the group treated with ashwagandha showed increased sperm count and motility, which lead researchers to believe Ashwagandha supplements may have powerful effects on testosterone levels and reproductive health. In another study, men who received ashwagandha for stress experienced higher antioxidant levels and overall improved sperm quality. After just 3 months of treatment, a whopping 14% of the men’s partners had become pregnant.

7. Increases Strength and Exercise Performance: In a study with healthy young adults who took 500 milligrams of ashwagandha daily for 8 weeks, it determined they had more speed and strength during exercise than people who took a placebo. They also demonstrated better breathing, taking in more oxygen. In a study to determine a safe and effective dosage for ashwagandha, healthy men who took 750–1,250 mg of pulverized ashwagandha root per day gained muscle strength after 30 days. In another study, those who took ashwagandha had significantly greater gains in muscle strength and size. It also more than doubled their reductions in body fat percentage, compared with the placebo group.

8. Reduce Depression: This has not been thoroughly studied, however, limited research done has shown that ashwagandha possibly has a positive effect in reducing depression. In one controlled 60-day study in 64 stressed adults, those who took 600 mg of high-concentration ashwagandha extract per day reported a 79% reduction in severe depression, while the placebo group reported a 10% increase.

9. Lower Cholesterol and Triglycerides: In addition to its well-known and documented anti-inflammatory effects, ashwagandha may help improve heart health by reducing cholesterol and triglyceride levels. In particular, animal studies have found that it significantly decreases levels of these blood fats. One animal study in rats found that it lowered total cholesterol and triglyceride levels by 53% and nearly 45%, respectively. In a 60-day study in chronically stressed adults, the group taking the highest dosage of standardized ashwagandha extract experienced a 17% decrease in LDL (bad) cholesterol and an 11% decrease in triglycerides, on average.

10. Improve Memory: Several test-tube and animal studies have suggested that ashwagandha may mitigate memory and brain function problems caused by injury or disease, and it promotes antioxidant activity that protects nerve cells from harmful free radicals. In one study, rats with epilepsy that were treated with ashwagandha had nearly a complete reversal of spatial memory impairment. Likely this was caused by a reduction in oxidative stress.

11. Improve Sleep: I’m big on sleep quality (as some readers may already know), which means I examine multiple ways exercise, hydration, diet, and supplementation can improve sleep. Ashwagandha may improve sleep according to one study with humans that showed taking 300 milligrams of the herb two times daily improved sleep. Another study on animals found that the triethylene glycol in ashwagandha is what brings sleep on.

How to Take Ashwagandha: It’s best to take 1/4-1/2 tsp of Ashwghanda with food, twice daily. Personally, I prefer to take the first dose in the morning and the second in the evening. On days when I’m intermittent fasting, I’ll take it in the afternoon and evening once I have broken fast.

Conclusion: It may be worth considering adding Ashwghanda to your supplement regimen. However, I do suggest checking if there is any potential conflict with existing supplements or medications you may be taking. Often, it’s best to check with your doctor if it makes sense for you to begin taking Ashwagandha. However, it’s worth noting from my personal experience with doctors that many of them have no clue about holistic or natural herbs and remedies, so doing your own diligence/research may be more beneficial when considering taking Ashwagandha.

Atrantil is a natural and safe solution proven to get rid of abdominal bloating and discomfort.

Atrantil’s patented combination of natural polyphenols gets rid of your bloating and supports your digestive health. Portions of the gut are intended to contain small amounts of bacteria. If this relatively sterile environment gets overpopulated with bacteria, trouble isn’t far behind. When bacteria start to break down the food you eat, they produce methane—which can create abdominal discomfort and that uncomfortable bloated feeling. Additionally, if you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Atrantil may be the solution you’ve been looking for! 

Atrantil has been clinically tested and proven. For those suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) & Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Atrantil was proven to be over 80% effective in two separate clinical trials.

Atrantíl’s three natural ingredients work together to help weaken and remove unwanted bacteria and return your gut to its normal, calm environment. New research shows that the problems start with methane producing bacteria. Left untreated, these out-of-place bacteria feed off the foods you eat and create methane gas that leaves you bloated and uncomfortable. Atrantíl breaks the cycle naturally—and gets you and your digestion back on track.

Atrantíl has three active botanicals—Peppermint Leaf (M. balsamea Willd extract), Quebracho extract, Horse Chestnut (Conker Tree extract) composed in a unique patented molecular combination.

Contraindications: If you have gallbladder disease or liver disorder, do not use. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. 

General Dosing: Take two capsules a day, up to three times a day with food. Continue until you feel relief, then consider taking a maintenance dose.

Organic Calendula Face and Body Cream made in Penticton, BC.

Calendula is known for its skin healing, renewing, soothing and softening qualities. Calendula cream is primarily used to treat skin age spots, diaper rash, eczema, skin irritations, bruises, burns and open wounds. Calendula improves neovascularization in tissue, or the growth of new tiny capillaries, which improves blood circulation and helps skin wounds heal.

It increases the speed of tissue repair for open wounds as well as for tissue injuries such as sunburn. The cream base has a soothing effect on surrounding tissue to aid relief from itching or pain. Calendula cream has also been recommended to treat minor frostbite. Specific studies have not been done to validate these uses.

Radiation treatments for cancer can cause sores and dermatitis at the radiation site. Calendula cream has been used by patients to soothe and help heal these skin conditions. Clinical studies have not been done to verify this use of calendula cream, but according to the University of Maryland Medical Center, homeopathic doctors recommend its use for this type of topical application.

Calendula cream seems to have anti-inflammatory properties, and it may be used to soothe muscle aches, cramps and sprains. The cream may also be used to treat hemorrhoids, according to UMMC, although studies for its use as an anti-inflammatory treatment have not been conducted.

*Made with organic calendula petals infused in sunflower oil, beeswax and essential oil blend. Handmade by Okanagan Herbals in Penticton BC.

Your source for the only fresh, wild-caught and raw Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil in the world! Recommended for GAPS, real foods and Paleo diets, and others that understand it’s important to use a premium cod liver oil with naturally occurring nutrients. Recommended by Weston Price Foundation!

Rosita Real Foods is a trusted source of fresh, wild-caught and raw liver oils, rendered from sustainably harvested fish living in the crystal clear waters of the remote Norwegian Fjords. As Organic 3 is the only U.S. distributor of Rosita’s truly exceptional products, our goal is to provide you with a genuine, extra virgin cod liver oil that’s as close to the freshness and nutrient content as you would find in the liver of a “living” codfish.

No chemicals, solvents or mechanical devices are ever used in Rosita’s ancient, handcrafted process. Starting with the harvest of the fish from Norway’s cold, clean northern fjords using their own small fleet of fishing boats, Rosita controls every single step of its extracting process. In their small processing facility, they use an ancient method to extract the oil from the liver. It mimics the changes of the seasons and minimizes the fish liver oils exposure to light, heat and oxygen. No chemicals or bleaches are used, so you only get raw, mild-tasting, nutrient-rich fish liver oil.

Colloidal Silver made here at Real Raw Food.

*All sizes will ship in plastic containers for the remainder of the winter. 

It is best to have this in your medicine chest before you need it. 

• Research leads one to think it may be one of the best antibiotics.
• It is nontoxic and faster at killing many more pathogens than traditional antibiotics. Bad bacteria, viruses, and fungi are killed within minutes of contact.
• It promotes healing new tissue to injuries and stimulates bone growth.
• Breaks down biofilm that shields germs and kills them quickly.
• Has the proven ability to cause DNA to dedifferentiate or revert back to stem cells preventing scar tissue.
• Might be worth looking into for cancer treatment. Dr. Becker found that it causes cancer cells to revert to normal.
• Use to treat drinking water. Health Canada states: "It is not considered necessary to specify a maximum acceptable concentration for silver in drinking water."

Much contradictory info is stated about which form is best. It is obvious that some vendors of colloidal silver are giving misleading info. Only the best will do so we did a lot of research. What we found from unbiased researchers was that particle size (smaller is better) and purity are the most important factors. Ours is 15 ppm and approximately 98.6% ions and 1.4% particles. Made with distilled water. Colloidal silver is not expensive to make so don't be fooled by small bottles with high prices. More info

How to Use:
• 1-2 tbsps daily, or when needed
• For cuts or burns, put directly on the injury with soaked gauze or spray.
• For tooth plaque removal and mouth issues such as abcesses hold in the mouth for a couple of minutes. Get better results by adding some DMSO. I did this for an abcess where a tooth was extracted. The abcess soon stopped and bone regrew rapidly so it was ready for an implant in 4 weeks instead of the usual 12 weeks.

How to Store:

- At room temperature, away from light, and with the lid on tightly. Do not drink directly from bottle. 

*We are not making any claims that colloidal silver will cure any disease, only sharing information.

COLLOIDAL SILVER INFO - Let's Cut Through The BS

95% Curcuminoid extract with piperine. Curcumin is a yellow pigment present in the spice turmeric that has been associated with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antiviral, and antibacterial activities as indicated by over 6,000 citations. In addition, over one hundred clinical studies have been carried out with curcumin. One of the major problems with curcumin is perceived to be the bioavailability. Absorbability is increased up to 2000 times with piperine added. This is good for the gut.        Pure cucumin extract with nothing added.
  Berberine. & Curcumin Herbal Superstars

This particular blend of Turmeric extract contains about 95% Curcuminoids, which themselves are about 70-80% Curcumin, 15-25% Desmethoxycurcumin, and 2.5-6.5% Bisdemethoxycurcumin. Otherwise, there are no kinds of fillers whatsoever.
This product is very pigmented and may stain some surfaces and fabrics-- in fact, turmeric is used as a fabric dye in some countries. Please use care when opening. Should you need to wash out a stain, acting quickly is important. Pre-treating the garment or surface with a white vinegar solution or baking soda is recommended. 

CURCUMIN SIDE EFFECTS
As long as the suggested serving size and daily values are adhered to, there should be no adverse side effects experienced by anyone interested in taking this supplement. Those that have gastrointestinal disorders or otherwise sensitive stomachs may experience a bit of stomach upset when first introducing Curcumin into their system, but this is not unexpected. 
Those that have a ginger allergy should speak with a medical professional before taking this supplement, as the two are closely related. Anyone that is on any medication that attempts to treat high blood pressure or anyone with erratic blood sugar levels should exercise extreme caution before attempting to use this supplement. Pregnant women and those that have blood-clotting problems or are on blood thinners should avoid this supplement altogether, as it may have an adverse reaction with the medication you are taking.

TIPS
Curcumin has a deep, yellow-orange color and a spicy taste. While some sources recommend that it be taken on an empty stomach, Curcumin is absorbed best when it has been cooked with oil, such as olive or coconut, or even butter. Its spiciness and vague ginger-like flavor make it a great seasoning for many dishes, especially basic ones such as white rice or other East Asian delicacies. It even works well when dissolved into hot tea as a flavoring.
This powder is best absorbed in a fatty solution. If cooking is out of the question or you just want to try something new, there is one drink that has a fat content that is just right for bringing out the true flavor and effectiveness of Curcumin, especially if taking the maximum daily serving level. This liquid is hot coconut milk. By mixing Curcumin in with coconut milk, this allows it to be absorbed easily by the body, and it also provides a delicious alternative to water. It goes well when taken with especially fatty meals.

99.997% Pure Pharma-Grade DMSO

(100ml, 250ml & Aloe Gel are 70% Solution)

(1 (USA) Gallon Jug is 99%, NOT 70% solution)

DMSO is used for joint pain, inflammation, burns and muscle injuries. It can also speed up the healing of injuries. 

Despite decades of research and thousands of studies attesting to its health-promoting properties, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) remains virtually unknown to the medical profession and the public.

This inexpensive, naturally found compound demonstrates:

  • potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties
  • relieves painful musculoskeletal and urinary conditions
  • and may even fight Alzheimer’s disease and cancer.

Unfortunately, its widespread acceptance and use has been stymied by the FDA and their allies in the pharmaceutical industry.

*Use with caution if you have asthma, diabetes, or a liver or kidney condition.
