Nordic Naturals Omega LDL

Nordic Naturals Omega LDL

Dietary Needs:
None

Nordic Naturals Omega LDL exceeds International Pharmaceutical Standards. They get stars for exceptional freshness, high integrity processing, and great purity. This is one of the best brands found in the health food store for fish oil. We use this product to help our clients get their cholesterol lowered naturally (while we are working on inflammation which is the root cause of high cholesterol) because, in addition to fish oil, it contains red yeast rice and CoQ10, both exceptional nutrients for heart health. Red yeast rice is a natural statin and should never be combined with any cholesterol lowering medications.

Eden Foods Umeboshi Plum Vinegar

Eden Foods Umeboshi Plum Vinegar

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

This condiment is rich in organic acids. Treasured by-product from traditional pickling of EDEN Umeboshi Plums with sea salt and shiso (beefsteak) leaf. Ruby red, tangy, and very salty. Sprinkle over cooked or steamed vegetables, add to salad dressings and dips, and use for pickling. This powerful Asian plum helps to strengthen the adrenal glands and support the kidneys. A little goes a long way so you don't need to use as much as you would with regular vinegar.

Blue Diamond Nut Thins

Blue Diamond Nut Thins

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Eating gluten-free doesn't have to be boring or tasteless. Blue Diamond, our friends who make the almond milk, also make a number of varieties of their nut thins crackers. We like the taste of this cracker and love the fact that use high quality expeller-pressed safflower oil. This is a rice-based cracker with almond flour added to increase protein content. The last two ingredients are natural almond flavor and natural butter flavor. We aren't sure what that means exactly but hope it means no artificial flavors. Great to use with any dipping. We would be pysched if their ingredients were organic.

MRM Gluten Free Enzyme

MRM Gluten Free Enzyme

Dietary Needs:
None

Sensitivities to gluten and dairy proteins are common and can result in digestive discomfort and a dramatically lowered immune response. Avoiding specific foods (rye, wheat, barley, oats, dairy, etc.) is not always an option and when that is the case, we recommend using an enzyme to help your body assimilate nutrients. MRM’s Gluten FREE is an enzyme blend developed to assist the digestion of foods containing gluten and dairy proteins. Proteins consist of single or multiple polypeptide units, which are long chains of amino acids connected through peptide bonds. Peptides are short chains of amino acids that occur during the breakdown of polypeptides chains into amino acids. Sensitivity to rye, wheat, barley, and dairy can be attributed to the incomplete digestion of certain peptides found in gluten and dairy protein. These partially digested peptide fragments can lead to inflammation of the intestinal lining, bloating, malabsorption, and/or gut permeability. Supplementing with Gluten FREE can help you obtain vital nutrients when you eat these foods (which is only on rare occasion, we hope).
