Bragg's Liquid Aminos

Bragg's Liquid Aminos

Dietary Needs:
Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic

Bragg Liquid Aminos is a Certified NON-GMO liquid protein concentrate, derived from healthy soybeans. While this might be a nice way to get additional amino acids for vegetarians, we try to steer clear from unfermented soy in the diet. This product is not fermented or heated and Gluten-Free. It only gets 3 stars due to the soy and we would recommend a fermented spy product such as tamari instead.

Pure Synergy - The Original Green Superfood

Pure Synergy - The Original Green Superfood

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

Pure Synergy is a simply phenomenal, incredibly effective product. It won the Natural News's Editor's Choice Award for top superfood product. They describe Pure Synergy as "one of the most nutritionally dense superfood powders you'll find anywhere." Noting that Pure Synergy is "rich in microalgae and seaweeds, sprouts, Chinese medicinal mushrooms, herbal extracts and Western herbs," Natural News concludes that the product contains "over ten thousand different phytonutrients" and offers a broad-spectrum formula that "will blow your mind." It is produced sustainably with the utmost respect for the environment in mind. They never add fillers or bulking agents (such as whole grasses, apple fiber or pectin, rice bran or flax), which dilute nutritional potency and are a potential source of genetically modified material. Because the cellulose fiber in whole grass is indigestible, it prevents the grass's valuable phytonutrients from being released in the digestive system. For this reason, they use only grass juices. In every spoonful of Pure Synergy, you receive densely packed nutrition that intensely nourishes and strengthens every system in the body, resulting in sustained energy, enhanced recovery, mental clarity and overall well being. This is a super star product in our book!
