Navitas Maca Powder

Navitas Maca Powder

Dietary Needs:
None

Maca root is a powerful superfood that can be used to balance hormones, increase energy, fertility and stamina. It has been used in indigenous Andean societies as a source of nourishment and healing for thousands of years, and continues to be one of the most appreciated superfoods today. Maca root has powerful adaptogenic properties meaning it can help prevent hormonal imbalances that can result from stress because it helps to balance the pituitary gland. Navitas sourcing is second to none and the maca is cultivated in its indigenous region of the Junin Plateau amongst the Peruvian Andes. After harvest, the maca roots are slow-dried and gently milled at low temperatures to preserve the food’s natural integrity. This product has only one ingredient, maca root, and is raw, kosher, gluten-free, vegan, and 100% organic. Maca has a rich earthy taste and is a delicious addition to our breakfast smoothie, various nut milks, sprinkled on cereals or yogurt.

Artisana Organic Super Food Berry Antioxidant Nut Butter

Artisana Organic Super Food Berry Antioxidant Nut Butter

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

Artisana gets big points for creativity on these super food nut butters. When it comes to antioxidants- it's all about fighting free radicals and that is just what these powerful goji berry and elderberries do. They deliver a potent antioxidant punch and are a rich source of Omega 3. It has long been known by indigenous native Americans that wild berries have potent health benefits. The powerful antioxidants found in wild berries include flavonoids and other phenolics such as anthocyanins. Berries are perfect for just about anyone as they have a low glycemic index. Ingredients are simple which we love: Organic Raw Artisana Cashew Butter, Organic Almond Oil, Organic Goji Berry, Organic Elderberry, Organic Agave. 4.5 stars because we are not big agave fans since it has to be processed through the liver.
