Nature's Gate Aloe Vera Shampoo

Nature's Gate Aloe Vera Shampoo

Dietary Needs:
None

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.

Living Harvest Hemp Protein

Living Harvest Hemp Protein

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

This Organic Hemp Protein is the perfect high performance plant-based whole food. With food allergies on the rise, hemp protein makes for an awesome alternative to dairy, eggs, nuts and soy (all of which are food sensitivities we see on a daily basis.)  Living Harvest Hemp Protein is 100% certified organic, raw, gluten free and vegan. It contains all 10 Essential Amino Acids, a balanced ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids and GLA and an excellent source of fiber. Hemp is our favorite vegan source of protein because we find it is alkalizing, more bioavailable than rice, pea and soy protein and the most hypoallergenic of the plant proteins. Living Harvest believes in sustainable farming practices and are environmentally conscious. Be sure to get the original flavor, because the vanilla spice is sweetened with cane sugar. Check out Living Harvest also for their hemp milk, hemp oil, and hemp ice cream. We like it...all things hemp!

Spectrum Organic Flax Oil

Spectrum Organic Flax Oil

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

Flax Oil is nature's richest source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 essential fatty acid your body naturally converts to EPA and DHA - the same fatty acids in fish oil that support heart health, reduce inflammation and improve cellular integrity. Spectrum organic flax oil is always fresh and never bitter due to their 3-step organic filtration process that removes impurities. The result is a clean, fresh-tasting golden oil. Use on already popped popcorn, in salad dressings or to top steamed veggies. This company is dedicated to providing the world with heart healthy oils that are easily accessible and affordable.

Spectrum Avocado Oil

Spectrum Avocado Oil

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

Spectrum's Avocado Oil is a high heat wonder, with rich stores of monounsaturated fat. It is first cold pressed, then gently refined (to make it safe for high heat) using natural methods to create a clean, fresh oil that's a perfect match for high heat cooking. Avocado oil is best for high heat applications like sauteing, frying and all-purpose cooking. Excellent for skin care and massage in it’s unrefined state. Also high in vitamin E when less refined. Spectrum was the first company to introduce all-vegetable shortening containing no hydrogenated oils and zero trans-fats. We support a company that is innovative, organic and dynamic like this one.
