Adren-All by Orthomolecular

Adren-All by Orthomolecular

Dietary Needs:
None

Adren-All is one of our favorite products to use to support more severe cases of adrenal fatigue because it contains a bovine adrenal glandular as well as adaptogenic herbs and the appropriate amount of b vitamins and antioxidants to nourish tired adrenals. High in B6, B12 and pantothenic acid this product helps to calm the nervous system while providing a direct source of cortisol to the adrenals. The adaptogenic herbs including schizandra, rhodiola, gensing and licorice create a synergistic combination that is noticeable after just a few days of use. Schizandra is used to bring balance to the adrenals while rhodiola has been used for centuries in Russia to help with fatigue, stress, and to boost immune health. Siberian Ginseng is used to help boost energy levels, decrease fatigue, and improve overall immune health and licorice root increases the half life of endogenous cortisol and is instrumental in adrenal support. We never suggest the use of licorice to those with high blood pressure and would never recommend this product without seeing results from  a full hormone test because glandulars should always and only be taken as directed by a health care practitioner. Orthomolecur's tag line is "because efficacy matters". That is so true for this company and their products. It is one of the most effective lines we have worked with to date.

Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Consult your health care practitioner or physician prior to starting a new supplement.

Eden Organic Tamari

Eden Organic Tamari

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

Eden organic makes a great tamari (wheat-free soy sauce) for those of us with wheat allergies. They have won several awards for the best flavor with the perfect amount of salt. Organic and fermented long - the true Japanese way. Most conventional soy sauces have not only wheat, but sugar as well. Eden is a safe choice. Wheat is in SO many things and so many of us are allergic to it so why not purchase your soy sauce without it.

Maine Coast Sea Vegetables: Kelp, Dulse, and Nori

Maine Coast Sea Vegetables: Kelp, Dulse, and Nori

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

One cannot find a more nutrient-dense condiment than sea vegetables. They are packed with essential trace minerals needed for blood and bones, the proper composition of body fluids, healthy nerve function and proper operation of the cardiovascular system. Main coast offers six organically certified varieties: arame, dulse, kelp, laver, sea lettuce and bladderwrack. They are hand harvested directly from their beds at low tides, dried at low temperatures by sun, wood or forced hot air and packed without further processing. Sea vegetables improve digestion, blood sugar balance, promote weight loss and mood balance. We suggest always keeping them stocked (they do not taste fishy, just a bit salty) and shaking them daily on anything savory from soup to salads to stir fry.

Greens Plus Energy Bar - original

Greens Plus Energy Bar - original

Dietary Needs:
Vegan, Dairy Free, Gluten Free

Greens Plus uses organic and wild crafted ingredients and superfoods like Hawaiian spirulina, bee pollen and royal jelly, among other health promoting substances. We like that these bars are sweetened with dates. Their products are consistently being made fresh daily without harmful preservatives. Try their Chia seed bar for a powerful delivery of Omega 3 fatty acids. For a sweet treat, they offer a naturally sweetened chocolate coated bar as well as a peanut butter protein bar for an extra hit of protein. We so wish these bars did not contain soy protein because of the toxic processing and negative interaction in the body. They do have an Organic Greens Plus Energy Bar that is made with brown rice protein which is a huge upgrade from the soy protien.

Eden Foods Buckwheat Soba Noodles

Eden Foods Buckwheat Soba Noodles

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

Look for 100% buckwheat on the ingredient list. These noodles made out of kasha or buckwheat are the perfect, fast cooking (8 minutes) noodle to accompany any Asian meal. This naturally gluten free complex carbohydrate is warming and sustaining, making them a great noodle for the cold winter months or serve cold in a summer salads. Buckwheat contains two flavanoids quercitin, thought to support healing in the body and rutin which is an antioxidant. Rutin is known to strengthen capillaries and improve circulation. This is a smart gluten free alternative when it comes to pasta.
