Navitas Chia Seeds

Navitas Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are known for being high in fiber, healthy omega fats, protein and antioxidants. Navitas Naturals offers these small, whole, organic chia seeds in their pure state. Chia is a superfood that has been long used by the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incans as a staple food along with corn and beans. Chia can be used to promote weight loss as these little seeds can actually absorb 10 times their weight in water which leaves you with a “full” feeling. Chia seeds also slow down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrates into simple sugars. Studies indicate these seeds can help control blood sugar. This chia is raw, gluten-free, kosher, vegan, and 100% organic. Try sprinkling these mildly nutty seeds in with your breakfast bowl, mix into a salad dressing or dip, or soak them in water or juice to form a gel and use as natural thickening agent for soups and other recipes.

Nature’s Baby Organics Baby Body Wash

Nature’s Baby Organics Baby Body Wash

Dietary Needs:


This is hands down our favorite baby body wash. The tangerine vanilla makes baby’s head smell sweet. Because of how gentle the ingredients are, it can actually help with cradle cap. These healing and cleansing ingredients include organic aloe, comfrey, calendula & chamomile. Nature’s Baby have their own certified aloe farm to ensure purity so that consumers could have an aloe without pre-preserved methylparabens and phenoxythanol. 100% vegan and hypo allergenic. Just what we look for at The Whole Journey!

Nature's Path Organic Flax Cereal

Nature's Path Organic Flax Cereal

Dietary Needs:


This home grown company prides themselves on the fact that they never “sold out” when it comes to their core beliefs of organic farming and sustainability. Their cereals are made with ingredients including whole corn meal, brown rice flour, quinoa, flax seeds, and buckwheat flour.  Some cereals are gluten free which we like, however the cereals are sweetened with molasses and evaporated cane juice which of course brings down their star rating a bit. They offer a variety of products including cereals, granola and oatmeal.

Nature's Gate Aloe Vera Shampoo

Nature's Gate Aloe Vera Shampoo

Dietary Needs:


Nature's Gate Aloe Vera Shampoo is great for cleansing while restoring moisture. This healthy hair blend includes Panthenol, Soy Proteins, Vegetable Proteins, Jojoba Oil, Borage Flower Seed Oil, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. We like this product because of the aloe which has been used for centuries for its soothing, hydrating and refreshing properties. Nature's Gate combines natural floral and herbal extracts in hair, body, sun, skin and oral care. Many of their organic products have essences and extracts grown locally in California. We love the environmental sustainability of this product line but like to stay away from any products (shampoos) that contain laurel laureth sulfates.

Natural ZZZ's

Natural ZZZ's

Dietary Needs:


Sleeping is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle because the body needs rest in order to function properly throughout the day. This supplement by Orthomolecular combines natural ingredients to promote restful sleep without the negative side effects that are common with over the counter remedies. The four main ingredients found in Natural ZZZ’s are Valerian Root, Jujube Seed, Passion Flower, and Theanine. Valerian Root helps to promote muscle relaxation while Jujube Seed has been scientifically proven to be an effective sleep aid. Passion Flower is used to ease nervous tension and help the body fall asleep. Studies have shown that Theanine counter-balances caffeine in the body which is helpful for those who drink coffee.  Theanine also reduces stress and promotes rest by having a calming effect on the brain. All of these ingredients together will help to calm the mind and promote deep sleep at night in order to be productive the next day. Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Consult your health care practitioner or physician prior to starting a new supplement. This product is NOT to be combined with other sleeping medications or supplements.

Glutenza

Glutenza

Dietary Needs:


Glutenza is a ground breaking gluten-pulverizing formula! It is a multi-enzyme, pro AND pre-biotic blend (gives you good bacteria and also provides food for your good bacteria to keep them alive). While it was specifically designed to address gluten, it really is your safeguard against 4 of the 5 most common food sensitivities because it has the ability to pulverize 90% of the proteins in gluten, soy, dairy, and corn within 90 minutes of consumption! Glutenza works in a unique way to break down gluten proteins by targeting the internal and external peptide bonds. Formulator Dr. Tom O'Bryan would always give the advice is to avoid gluten but now with Glutenza you have some recourse if you are inadvertently exposed to it.  It can be used on a maintenance plan (to clean up old molecules of inflammation caused by consumption of these 4 food sensitivities) or for accidental exposure. I love and use this product as a shield for eating out, especially if I'm not sure if GMOs are somehow sneaking in there. It’s also a lifesaver for anyone who travels frequently. The pre-biotic in Glutenza comes from a non-starch source which means less bloating. It also contains three powerful strains of probiotics including; Saccharomyces boulardii (a positive yeast that combats pathogenic yeast), Bacillus subtillis (protects from and kills food borne pathogens) and Lactobacillus acidophilus (to help you digest your food better, extract more nutrients from it, and escort bad bugs out of the body).   This product is truly multi-faceted as it offers enzymes, prebiotics, and 10 billion CFU of live organisms that work in your gut to promote a healthy intestinal tract.
