11 NUTRIENT DENSE SEEDS, NUTS, & SPROUTS
Flax is the richest vegetable source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids. It is also the richest known source of lignans, a class of phytonutrients that have anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-carcinogenic properties.
Flax Seed is an exceptional source of dietary fiber, both soluble, and insoluble. Flax is high in boron, a trace mineral that helps the body hold onto calcium.
The National Cancer Institute has chosen flax as one of the first five primary foodstuffs for study to determine health benefits of natural foods. From the Omega 3 essential fatty acids, the body produces series 3 prostaglandin's. These act on the cellular level in a variety of disease fighting ways, that include anti-clotting actions in the blood stream, anti-inflammatory responses that alleviate or prevent such auto-immune diseases such as: arthritis, psoriasis, and asthma. They are involved in mechanisms of transport and metabolism of both cholesterol and triglycerides that result in a strong lowering effect on both of these cardiovascular factors.
Series 3 prostaglandins increase vitality, energy, and stamina due to their involvement in the body's process of oxidation, which, on a cellular level, is the way molecules are broken down to produce energy.
Flax Seed is rich in: Essential fatty acid Omega 3, soluble and insoluble fiber, and boron. Flax Seed contains natural anti-oxidants, and has positive effects on dry skin, tissue inflammation and immune system dysfunction.

Compared to other seeds and grains, chia seed provides the highest source of protein, between 19 to 23 percent protein by weight. One of the unique qualities of the chia seed is its ability to absorb more than nine times its volume in water or other liquid, thereby having the potential to help those trying to lose weight. This ability can also prolong hydration and retain electrolytes in body fluids, especially during exertion or exercise. Normal fluid retention ensures electrolyte dispersion across cell membranes, maintains fluid balances, and aids normal cellular function.
The gel-forming property of chia seed tends to slow digestion and sustain balanced blood sugar levels, which can be helpful in preventing or controlling diabetes.
Chia also facilitates the growth and regeneration of tissue during pregnancy and lactation, and aids the regeneration of muscles for conditioning athletes and bodybuilders. For the dieter, this means feeling full with no more peaks and valleys in blood sugar levels.
Research is being conducted to show how chia may prevent and/or overcome Type 2 (non-insulin dependent) diabetes.
Chia seeds contain high levels of both ornega-3 and omega-6 oils, needed by all people, but especially by pregnant women or those with PMS.
Chia seeds contain greater alpha-linolenic acid concentrations than any other seed or grain. This substance lowers the risk of heart disease, blurred vision, and numbness.
Native people have used chia gel on wounds, for colds and sore throats, for upset stomachs, body odors, prostate problems, and even constipation.
Chia seed contains large amounts of B vitamins and calcium. By volume, one ounce of chia contains two percent B-2 (riboflavin), 13 percent niacin, and 29 percent thiamin, and trace amounts of all B vitamins. In roughly two ounces of chia (100 grams), there are 600 milligrams of calcium, contrasted with 120 milligrams of calcium in the same amount of milk. That’s five times as much calcium than milk!
Chia also contains boron, which is needed for bones. With much of the nations soil boron depleted, we simply are not getting enough boron in our daily diets. Boron is needed to aid the metabolism of calcium, magnesium, manganese, and phosphorus in bones and for muscle growth. Boron also can increase the levels of natural estrogen.
Early results in current cancer research with chia show promise in this area. There is also good indicators of a link chia seeds have in the prevention or slowing of cancer development.
Chia is an excellent source of fiber.
The sesame seed, one of the smallest of all the seeds, is packed with goodness - high in protein, iron, zinc, magnesium, calcium and phytic acid. Low in carbohydrates and cholesterol free.
The seeds are an aid to digestion, stimulating blood circulation and benefiting the nervous system. Sesame seeds benefit the body as a whole, especially the liver, kidney, spleen and stomach. Its high oil content lubricates the intestines and nourishes all the internal viscera.
There is often concern that vegans do not get a sufficient amount of zinc or iron in their diet. Including sesame seeds in your diet is an ideal way of improving your Zinc and Iron intake.
Sesame seeds help to protect the body from free radicals. Phytic acid could inhibit cancer, specifically of the colon.
83+ ACTIVE ENZYMES & FULVIC MINERAL BLEND
Amylase is one of the two most effective digestive enzymes that are secreted in high concentrations by the human body. Amylase, found in saliva, breaks down carbohydrates (starch). In addition, pancreatic and intestinal juices contain this enzyme.
Amylase is from the class of enzymes that break down or hydrolyze starch. Starch containing foods are pasta, potatoes and rice. Amylase is commonly found in pineapples, bananas, raisins, potatoes and squash.
Cellulase digests cellulose (fiber). Plants are a person's only source of cellulase as the human body is unable to produce it. Chewing liberates the cellulase out of the food, but when people eat raw fruits and vegetables and don't chew properly the cellulase is never released. Cellulase may also be lacking because of the way the food was handled by the suppliers.
Cellulase is the enzyme that breaks down cellulose or fiber. Fiber is found in foods like bran muffins, broccoli, vegetable soup, whole grain bread and oatmeal. Some sources of cellulase are oranges, celery, carrots, lettuce, cabbage, and apples.
Protease is one of the most effective digestive enzymes secreted in high concentrations by the human body. It is found in the stomach and pancreatic juices and helps to digest protein. Protease is a class of enzymes that breaks down or hydrolyzes, the peptide bonds that join amino acids in a protein. The protein is broken down into its basic building blocks, amino acids. Some sources of protease are pea pods, lentils, alfalfa and navy beans.
Lactase is an intestinal enzyme that breaks lactose (milk sugar) into its two constituent sugars to render it absorbable. Humans produce peak amounts of lactase in infancy, when milk is necessary for survival; thereafter, the supply begins to diminish. Many people cannot digest more than a small amount of milk because of a deficiency of lactase.
Lipase aids in fat digestion, whereas pancreatic lipase digests fat in a highly alkaline environment, lipases found in food fats work in a more acidic environment.
This lipolytic or fat splitting enzyme Lapase is found in the blood, pancreatic secretions and tissues. Common sources are avocados, vegetable oil, rice, bran, millet, wheat germ, olive oil.
Maltase is a digestive enzyme, which breaks down malt sugars (maltose), which are an intermediate product in the digestion of starch. (May help relieve environmental sensitivities and allergies)
Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapple that is beneficial to the breakdown of proteins. Bromelain (Enzyme) is a strong anti-inflammatory. The only other source of Bromelain is pineapple juice. It is used by athletes to prevent post-workout soreness and is believed to facilitate the healing of sports injuries.
Sucrase is a digestive enzyme which breaks down sugars (sucrose) found in some vegetables and many fruits, and sugar derived from sugar cane, sugar beets, sorghum, molasses or maple sugar. Sucrase is beneficial in helping prevent gastrointestinal problems and discomfort.
