Solaray Grapefruit Seed Extract
Grapefruit seed extract is a great substance. It contains good amounts of disease-fighting, free-radical eliminating antioxidants and phytonutrients called bioflavonoids. One of these powerful bioflavanoids (plant antioxidants) include the chemical component hesperidin, a well-known natural immune-system stimulator and booster. Chemical analysis of grapefruit seed extract shows additional antioxidant constituents including Vitamin C, sterols, tocopherols, citric acid, liminoids, and other trace minerals. We recommend Solaray because it's easy to find and honestly one of the only companies that makes it in pill form and not a tincture, which is easy for our clients to take. It does wonders to remove fungus from the body/intestinal tract. We also like the tincture to help with melsasma or darkened skin, mixed with water and used as a tincture. Another use for the tincture is to add a few drops to grains when soaking to eliminate more phytic acid, which grains contain.

Kirkland Wild Alaskan Salmon
Soy Free, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free
Wild salmon is linked to numerous heatlh benefits and this is fast, easy and inexpensive way to work it into your diet. Found at Costco stores nationwide, try making a healthy salmon salad out this product. Mix in a healthy vinaigrette dressing, 1/2 a chopped onion, 1/2 green apple chopped and some chopped celery and you have a super healthy, omega 3 packed meal. You will never find canned salmon that is not wild. We are not fans of farm-raised fish and also because farm-raised salmon has dye in it to give it color and no DHA/EPA content, which is the entire reason we eat salmon, to get those health-promoting oils. Farmed salmon would turn to liquid in three days because it lacks these essential fats that would otherwise hold it together.

Sonrise Ranch Meats
Soy Free, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free
This is one we wish we could sing from the rooftops. Sonrise Ranch has a standard of meat that we do not know where to find anywhere else. They are in Northern California, in Carmel Valley. Their animals (chickens, sheep, pigs, & cows) live the life that nature intended for them to live, only better because they are treated kindly and fed top quality grass whle enjoying lots of sunshine. They are available locally at our Leucadia Farmer's Market, but outside of that we think you can order online or call the company to order. They also do fractional beef ownership if you like to keep it stocked in an outside freezer. This is the way our food supply should be and the way our animals should be treated. The Sonrise folks are good friends with the Westin A Price Foundation and hold their values high. We absolutely love them. You will definitely taste the difference.
