HealthForce Chlorella Manna

HealthForce Chlorella Manna

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

This chlorella is a broken-cell wall chlorella powder. Chlorella is known as the “king of alkaline-forming foods.” This single celled fresh-water algae is the first known form of a plant with a nucleus, and has the toughest cell wall of any algae. This is the only plant on the planet that can quadruple its growth in less than one day. It contains Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), which is a potent phytonutrient comprised of amino acids, beta glucans, nucleic acids, peptides, and polysaccharides. These micronutrients work together to help regenerate cells faster than normal and are incredibly powerful in cell production when used in the body. Chlorella can stimulate T-cells which boost the immune system. Chlorella has powerful detoxifying properties and can help break down toxins found in mercury and cadmium. We use this in all of our heavy metal cleansing protocols. HealthForce Nutritionals is a 20+ year 100% hardcore vegan therapeutic superfoods company. They coined the term Truganic, which is their purist, hard-core quality standard for sourcing and production that goes significantly beyond Organic. TWJ select without a doubt. Thank you HealthForce being one of the highest integrity companies that exist in this field!

Spice Hunter Turmeric

Spice Hunter Turmeric

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

Turmeric is an Eastern delight that enhances curries, meats, eggs, soups and vegetables. This is a powerful dietary spice for auto-immune-related inflammation and pain. Turmeric is also a fantastic source of indirect antioxidants, which means that it boosts and stimulates the body’s own production of antioxidants for hours after consumption. Some of the longest-living people in the world are in Okinawa, Japan and research shows that their longevity is credited to their ability to manage the inflammation process. Turmeric is widely consumed in Japan which might contribute to their longevity. Spice Hunter's spices are high quality and sealed for freshness. It's also important to know that The Spice Hunter does not irradiate any ingredients. The Spice Hunter is committed to responsible business practices and exploring ways to make the business more sustainable. They also source spices from the best areas and harvest in small batches.  Check out the recipe for our anit-inflammatory tumeric and ginger tea. They get 4.5 stars, and the only reason for that is because fresh is always better than dried.

Hero Nutritionals Slice of Life Vitamins

Hero Nutritionals Slice of Life Vitamins

Dietary Needs:
None

Slice of life offers a full spectrum of nutritional supplements for all ages. These gummy vitamins are easy to chew and are gluten and allergen free. The line includes a standard multi, a fish-free Omega 3-6-9 complex, and vitamin C. We don't like the fact that the first two ingredients are glucose syrup and natural cane sugar, however.  Each vitamin dose is 22 calories, with 4 grams of sugar. It's important to consider if you take several vitamins from the Slice of Life line, you’ll be ingesting the sugar equivalent of a serving of Cap’n Crunch. That makes us drop the star rating quite a bit.

Lundberg Brown Rice Crisps

Lundberg Brown Rice Crisps

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

Just when we thought Lundberg couldn't get any better they came out with these incredibly tasty brown rice crisps. These are a Whole Journey favorite to pair with hummus or guacamole. These chips are made with all organic grains and the product is 70% organic. This company is Non-GMO-Project verified with that logo on every bag of chips. This brown rice crisp is a wholesome, healthy-for-you snack, which adds fiber and B vitamins. Lundberg has removed the ingredient yeast extract from this product to improve the quality even more, which we love. Check out the four new flavors: Sesame and Seaweed, Fiesta Lime, Santa Fe Barbeque and Original. Thank you, Lundberg. You rock!

Vaska Oxygen Brightener

Vaska Oxygen Brightener

Dietary Needs:
None

This product is the natural version of bleach. While bleach has many harmful chemicals, this product has three simple ingredients: hydrogen peroxide, plant based surfactants and filtered water. Most people don't know that bleach is actually a pesticide which is also found in many household cleaning products that contain a "disinfectant" to kill germs. Vaska is a HUGE upgrade to bleach and will keep linens clean and white without weakening fibers. Be aware that it does not brighten quite as much as bleach does. We love supporting a company like this one with strong values in sustainability and environmental consciousness.
