THE NATURAL MULTI-VITAMIN FOR YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Organic Sea Buckthorn Powder
Known and revered for containing more than 120 active Phyto compounds, this tiny tart, and tangy powerhouse isn’t shy to flex its muscles in the wild west of superfoods.
The genus name is hippophae from the Greek words Hippo (Horse) and phaos (shine) because the Greeks used it as horse feed to make their skin shine. While it is true that sea buckthorn contains powerful antioxidant levels of vitamin C and a variety of carotenoids, highly concentrated powders of sea buckthorn have shown ORAC scores as high as over 800,000 per 100/g.
But this doesn’t hold a candle to what makes this berry a truly unique food.
It is the only plant known to contain a full spectrum of fatty acids 3, 6, 7, and 9. Of these, the superstar is the omega-7 fatty acid. Amongst many other benefits, it may support the stimulation of mucus membrane restoration in ocular, oral, respiratory, intestinal, and skin tissue. This is why Sea Buckthorn is known as one of “The great beauty secrets” by the Greek people, in addition to supporting a healthy inflammation response and healthy skin. Therefore, we suggest you not be so fast to vote out this berry in a shoot-out at the old salon at high noon.
Organic Turmeric Root Powder
While curcumin (a compound found in turmeric) is touted as the greatest plant for supporting a healthy inflammation response due to its unique mechanisms of action (modulating nuclear factor kappa B), turmeric has been shown to support more robust and broad-spectrum benefits.
Research has shown that curcumin-free turmeric extracts are as capable of supporting a healthy inflammation response. Furthermore, specific essential oils found in turmeric are necessary to utilize curcumin properly. Curcumin's ability to support a healthy inflammation response as one of its key benefits has produced a fallacy that turmeric is an anti-inflammatory.
In fact, the results of human research and the experience of many top herbalists are that turmeric has many modes of action (upwards of 300 activities have been ascribed to it), showing its ability to possibly be amphoteric – normalizing the function of an organ or system.
Organic Red Reishi Extract Powder
Red Reishi is known as “The Mushroom of Immortality” and has a long and well-documented history in traditional Chinese medicine. Because of its ability to potentially support a healthy aging process via nourishing what is known in Chinese medicine as “The Three Treasures” and for building great wisdom.
It could arguably be one of the greatest tonics on earth. A tonic is food or herb that supports a nonspecific response in maintaining balance and adaptability. They can very much support the body’s ability to re-establish our youth and vigor. Tonics are the first line of defense in Chinese medicine.
Red Reishi primarily comprises complex carbohydrates called water-soluble polysaccharides, triterpenoids, proteins, and amino acids. Researchers have identified that water-soluble polysaccharides are the most active element found in Red Reishi and may support a healthy immune system response and liver function.
Organic Chaga Mushroom Extract Powder
From Maine to Siberia, this fantastic prized fungus only found growing on birch trees has been traditionally “hunted” by mushroom enthusiasts in the dead of winter. Chaga needs conditions when the temperature has been at a minimum below 40 degrees for several weeks but truly thrives in brutal arctic weather.
Much like adaptogens, the more severe the growing conditions, the more powerful the end product. While 20-year-old Chaga is considered to be fully mature with the greatest concentration of potent healing compounds, it can live as long as 80 years before it dies and repeats the cycle. Our Organic Chaga Extract is standardized to a potent 30% polysaccharide to ensure you will get the support you need for a healthy immune system, liver, and gut.
Organic Mangosteen Fruit Juice Powder
As a traditional food and medicine for the people of southeast Asia, Mangosteen has been studied for its plethora of nourishing benefits, primarily when all parts of this powerful food are used correctly. Used internally and topically, mangosteen is chock-full of Phyto-compounds studied to support a healthy inflammation response.
The outer rind/pericarp contains a class of naturally occurring polyphenol compounds known as xanthones (which, according to research, may have remarkable benefits for cardiovascular health) that yields a polyhydroxy-xanthone derivative termed mangostin and beta-mangostin. Traditionally used to make ointments to support the healing of infection and support healthy skin, you can believe it when we tell you that the people of southeast Asia don’t waste a drop of this precious food.
While Budweiser may be the king of beer, Mangosteen is highly regarded as the queen of superfoods. We are not so sure that beer and mangosteen are a match made in heaven, but the nourishing qualities and benefits of the mangosteen fruit make it easy to conclude that the superfood gods did bring it straight from the heavens.
Organic Astragalus Root Powder
Revered as one of the great tonic herbal medicines in traditional Chinese medicine for over 2000 years, Astragalus is known as the “Great Protector of Qi.” This is due to its ability to fortify what is known as protective Qi, which flows just under the skin and in the muscles.
This “surface energy” supports the opening and closing of pores, our first line of defense against external environmental changes. But Astragalus is known for so much more.
The term dampness is used in Chinese medicine to describe conditions for which an individual is unable to metabolize fluids properly. Astragalus is a slightly warming Qi and blood tonic with strong supportive qualities for both the spleen and lungs, which are two organs specific to fluid metabolism. It is known to support “fluid metabolism” as a “Double Directional Adaptogen,” it may also help to support good posture and help tonify organs in the abdominal and pelvic cavity.
Adaptogens are defined as non-toxic herbs that may support the resistance of the hormonal and immune systems to all kinds of stressors through a nonspecific physiological response.
In simple terms, they support a healthy stress response. Modern science has put this world-renowned tonic back on the front pages due to its unique family of compounds known as Astragalosides that have been undergoing intense research for their many supportive aspects of a healthy aging process.
Organic Ginger Root Powder
While very popular in Asia, India, and the Middle East's traditional dishes, this prized culinary spice is used for so much more than its aromatic and spicy kick. Ginger has been well researched, and many of its traditional uses confirmed.
It is a warming remedy, ideal for supporting healthy circulation, possibly supporting healthy blood pressure levels, and possibly keeping the blood thin in higher doses. In her book '10 Essential Herbs', author Lalitha Thomas describes the properties: "The major active ingredients in ginger are terpenes (quite similar to the chemical action of turpentine), and an oleo-resin called ginger oil. These two, and other active ingredients in ginger, may provide support for healthy circulation.
In traditional Chinese medicine, ginger is used to dispel cold dispositions and support healthy energy levels. Whereas in Ayurveda, ginger is used to support healthy digestion. According to Stephen Buhner, the author of the book "Herbal Antivirals," which takes a more western approach to herbs, ginger may possess antiviral effects, thereby supporting a healthy immune system response. According to modern research, ginger is rich in specific active compounds called gingerols (6-gingerol, 8-gingerol, 10-gingerol) which are believed to be the primary reason for its ability to support a healthy inflammation response, immune response, and support healthy blood flow.
