Chia Seeds


Chia Seeds

Used centuries ago by the Mayan and Incan Warriors, chia seeds are packed with nutrients. These warriors would carry chia seeds in a pouch attached to their belts, and eat 1 Tbsp for a day’s worth of energy.

Today, runners and triathletes use them, as scientific studies have shown that Chia seeds are as energy-boosting as Gatorade and Power Drinks.

Chia seeds are especially loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids, which reduce chronic inflammation, like arthritis and heart disease. They are loaded with B Vitamins and minerals, like selenium. Especially

beneficial is the fact that Chia Seeds are loaded with fiber, which SUPPORTS FAT LOSS, and cleanses the colon. Think of Chia Seeds as you stool softener.

Also, Chia seeds are the highest source of plant-based protein, as is Spirulina, another super food.

For an immediate burst of energy, mix Chia seeds with coconut oil and a drop of peppermint oil.

Glutathione – Mother of all Antioxidants


Mother of all Antioxidants/Most Important Molecule to Stay Healthy and Prevent Disease.

GLUTATHIONEA Blog Post by Betty Melkon

According to Dr. Mark Hyman, MD, Director of Functional Medicine at Cleveland Clinic, a deficiency in this molecule has been found in nearly all of his chronically-ill patients in the last 10 years. There are more than 89,000 medical articles on this subject.

Our bodies produce it, but with poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation, we are all deficient in glutathione.

Glutathione is critical because it recycles antioxidants, helps our immune system fight infections and prevent cancer, and carries toxins into the bile and stool for elimination.

Bioactive Whey Protein, made from non-denatured proteins, is a great source of cysteine and the amino acid building blocks for glutathione synthesis. It MUST be sourced from GRASS-FED COWS and it MUST be UN-denatured.

Sulphur-Rich Foods, like garlic, onions, and cruciferous vegetables(broccoli, cauliflower, dark-green leafy vegetables) are key to getting more glutathione into the body.
