An all-natural `multivitamin` in and of itself. Used for centuries, Spirulina was the fuel of the Aztecs. Research demonstrates that the best energy source for the body is a slow-burning carbohydrate that provides well-balanced blood sugar and insulin levels, such as our Activated Barley. Our patented natural method of pre-sprouting activates the nutrients and enzymes in the inner kernel of the barley pearl increasing its energy potential by 400% and increases the beta glucan content by up to 94% over traditional barley grain products. The Roman army and Roman gladiators made pre-sprouted barley as their staple due to the energizing and endurance-boosting factors. Gladiators were nicknamed hordearii or "men who eat barley. "

Our organic Spirulina is grown in closely monitored conditions in China in salt water.
Spirulina Interesting Facts: Various types of kelp and other sea plants have been used traditionally by coastal societies for centuries, the use of Spirulina as a food is a rather different story. Although its scientific documentation as a "superfood" did not occur until the 20 th century, its first use was actually 200 years prior to that when a severe drought hit the South American continent. Facing starvation the indigenous people gathered green algae from tidal pools that were rapidly reproducing in the mid summer`s heat. It was not until World War II, however, when facing an embargo that the Japanese government created the Society for the Study of Algae. After intensive research two strains were found to have the perfect complement of protein, carbohydrates, minerals and essential fatty acids necessary to support human life. These were called Chlorella (grown in fresh water) and Spirulina (grown in salt water). A brilliant scientist named Dr. Hiroshi Nakamura then created unique aqua (water) culture models capable of producing many tons of this life giving superfood. After the war the project continued and Dr. Nakamura traveled to the United States to share his discovery with another brilliant phyco-biologist (sea plant biologist) named Dr. Christopher Hills. Together they planted the seeds of research over 30 years ago that have resulted in spirulina taking

Furthermore, vitamin E supplements only provide a fraction of what your body needs. Your body must metabolize or break down the vitamin E before it can use it, making it not only potentially harmful but also at times, useless!

Organic Kamut will help rebuild healthy intestinal flora and therefore may have a positive effect on regularity and gas. Green Kamut has traditionally been used to promote regularity and does not cause constipation in most cases.
Kamut Interesting Facts: Organic Kamut Blend is a great source of chlorophyll, the most health supporting green food phytochemical. The molecular structure of chlorophyll is similar to that of hemoglobin, the protein that makes human blood red. There are perhaps no two more vital elements working in tandem to benefit the body. Chlorophyll is responsible for the release of oxygen. Hemoglobin captures the oxygen in the lungs and delivers it to the cells. Chlorophyll is known to have enormous benefits as a cleansing, detoxifying, and healing substance. It delivers the necessary nutrients to your cells, neutralizes toxins and gives protection from free radicals. It is a natural detoxifier and helps eliminate toxins from the intestines and other tissues. Because it is a natural detoxifier, it also aids in reducing bad breath. Chlorophyll also acts as an antioxidant and antiinflammatory.
Kamut Interesting Facts: Organic Kamut Blend contains the necessary trace minerals, magnesium, potassium, and chromium. Magnesium activates the enzymes that catalyze reactions between phosphate ions and energy to muscle cells. It is also associated with regulation of body temperature, neuromuscular contraction and synthesis of protein. Potassium is the principle positively charged atom in intracellular fluid and is of primary importance in its maintenance. In conjunction with sodium and chloride, it aids in regulation of osmotic pressure (dissolved fluid absorption into the tissue) and acid-base balance. Chromium, a very hard metallic element, helps regulate metabolism and has recently become the superstar of the weight loss industry.
Kamut Interesting Facts: Organic Kamut Blend is an alkaline-forming food that does not artificially destroy the body`s acids, but instead balances them. Organic Kamut Blend also provides protein-completing factors, all of the eight essential amino acids, as well as a number of free form proteins that are reconfigured and used by the body to create lean connective tissue and enhance reproductive functions. Organic Kamut Blend contains enzymes identical to the most powerful and important enzymes manufactured by the body. The function of enzymes as catalysts is undeniable. Since every reaction in the body is triggered by enzymes, those which are taken in by the body as food supplant the need of the body to manufacture it`s own, therefore reducing a form of stress on the body.
Kamut Interesting Facts: Kamut seed was discovered in an Egyptian tomb in the late 1930`s. David Sandoval originated Kamut Wheatgrass in 1993 and since then Organic Kamut quickly became recognized as the finest wheatgrass powder available. Chlorophyll containing plants have always been the "source of life" and well being for the planet and humans. To get a healthy supply in your diet you would need to eat many servings of kale, collards, turnips, mustard greens or spinach. In our fast food paced society, many of us do not have time to think about health and nutrition.
