A volcanic mineral supplement with dramatic detoxifying effects. Zeolite is a natural volcanic compound that contains mineral nutrients like potassium, calcium (also a pH buffer), a little sodium and various other elements too. A volcanic mineral compound with healthy detoxifying effects. But The Real Thing Zeolite Powder contains a particular kind called clinoptilolite. Clinoptilolite is the most abundant zeolite and reported to be ideal for zeolite exchange. Detox – The negatively charged honeycomb structure found in the zeolite sucks in the positively charged toxins, free radicals, radioactive substances, viruses and heavy metal ions and helps seep them from your system. More Minerals – Zeolites have previously been used to balance nitrogen, calcium and phosphorous levels in animal feed. But they can also affect the mineral balance within the body. How? Well, firstly because toxin build-up can impair the absorption of essential minerals for optimal health. So, by reducing the toxin load, Zeolite helps to restore the incoming mineral balance. Simple. Then it also replaces toxic heavy metals with healthful potassium, calcium and (to some extent) sodium. Better mineral input overall. General Health Boost – Zeolite is thought to contribute to improved general health and immune system function. It also has demonstrated antioxidant activity that may bring beneficial tissue protection too. Digestive Support – It’s a digestive system buffer or alkaliniser that acts against excessive acidity in the body. Plus Zeolite can also improve the digestibility of nutrients, meaning you get more of what you need. Facemask – For internal or external detox of the skin. Ingredients: Just the purest, 100% natural powdered zeolites, comprised of 95% clinoptilolite. Free of: wheat, gluten or dairy. No binders, fillers, preservatives or additives of any kind. Dosage For general detox: After food, take 1 level teaspoon (5g) daily for at least 30 days, mixed with water or a cold drink of your choice. For acute dosing: Consult your health care practitioner. As a face mask: Mix 1 to 2 level tablespoons with a little water to make a paste. Before the paste dries, apply evenly over the face (and neck and chest if desired). After 10 minutes, rinse off with mild soap and water. Use once every two weeks. If skin feels dry after application, apply a moisturiser.

Organic grasses of wheat, barley and alfalfa, seven organic or wild-harvested sea vegetables PLUS chlorella, spirulina, parsley and spinach. Ingredients 1. GREENS Organic wheat, barley and alfalfa grasses Pure cereal grasses provide a multinutritional boost. Organically grown in rich volcanic soil. They can lay down deep roots and absorb more nutrients. Alfalfa grass in particular. It lays down the deepest roots of any plant or vegetable and deeper roots mean even more nutrients. Parsley It contains so many ingredients that have so many healthful effects on our system, Besides containing carotene, vitamins B1, B2, C and K, it is a potent anti-oxidant and helps detox. Spinach Spinach is an extremely rich source of antioxidants and a rich source of vitamin A, C, E, K,iron, folic acid, magnesium and nitrates. It is thought to play a role in regulating blood sugar levels and early research suggests that compounds in spinach may slow ageing of the nervous system! 7 organic or wild-harvested sea vegetables (Organic kelp (Laminaria digitata), Organic rockweed, Organic dulse, Organic bladderwrack, Organic sea lettuce, Organic laver, Wild-harvested nori). Sea vegetables provide 10 to 20 times more vitamins and minerals than land vegetables. That’s good news. Particularly when it comes to iodine, a vital mineral for the healthy functioning of glands like the pituitary, adrenals and thyroid. Sea vegetable foods offer more protection against radiation and environmental toxins. Chlorella pyrenoidosa and Spirulina platensis algae Chlorella is a nutritious little microalga. It’s made of 60% easily assimilated protein and other lovely stuff like nucleic acids, essential fatty acids and the antioxidant beta-carotene. Plus it’s nature’s richest source of the antioxidant chlorophyll. Chlorella is a rich algae that has immune-strengthening, infection-fighting properties that help clear viruses, bacteria and other micro-baddies. FACT: Chlorella contains two to three times more chlorophyll than any other food. Spirulina A microscopic, filamentous blue – green microalgae. The food interest in Spirulina is focused mainly on its rich content of: 1) protein; 60-70% protein by weight, 2) vitamins; especially vitamin B12 and beta-carotene, 3) essential minerals; especially iron and 4) essential fatty acids; it is one of the few sources of dietary gamma linoleic acid. Spirulina also contains all eight essential and nine non-essential amino acids and numerous phytochemicals which have a host of potential health benefits. 2. CRUCIAL CRUCIFEROUS. What do Broccoli, Daikon radish and the vegetable Kale have in common? They all belong to the famous cell- protecting, Cruciferous (Brassicaceae) family. Various components in these superfood vegetables including glucosinolates, crambene, indole-3-carbinol and isothiocyanates, have been shown clinically not only to decrease cancer risks and oxidative stress, but also to be linked to lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease. Strapping Vitality Leaders!

SUPERIOR SPROUTS! Nutrient and enzyme dense sprouts. Organic Adzuki, Amaranth, Fenugreek, Quinoa and Sunflower unleash some of the most dynamite packages of health. FACT: Sprouts are estimated to have 100 times more enzymes than uncooked fruits and vegetables. Most of these enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts for all your body’s functions; extracting more vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids from the foods you eat. Sprouts have substantially more fibre than their fully grown counterparts. Amaranth When Amaranth seeds sprout, they pop like popcorn. Popping out an abundance of nutrients like lysine, an essential amino acid, limited in other grains or plant sources. Its content of plant stanols and squalene may be of benefit for those with hypertension, cardiovascular disease and to help lower cholesterol. Vitamin A, vitamin C and folate, thiamine, niacin and riboflavin compliment a source of some dietary minerals including calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, copper, and manganese. Fenugreek This small annual leguminous herb is native to sub-Himalayan plains of India and is one of the oldest medicinal recorded herbs. It’s a rich source of vitamins and minerals. The myriad of medicinal benefits attributed to fenugreek are insurmountable. Blood cleanser, diaphoretic, lymphatic cleanser, laxative, cough and bronchitis are to name just a few. Traditionally, fenugreeks are being used to assist with digestive problems and to improve breast milk secretion in the nursing mothers. Sunflower Remember this statement?? ‘sprouting fresh shoots can boost the nutritional qualities by 300 to 1200 percent’.Well consider that these tiny powerhouses have 30 times the nutrient value and life force of any other sprout! We are onto a whole different level of superfood now.. Adzuki Adzuki sprouts, voted the “most red” sprout, provide a valuable source of minerals; iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc and folic acid. This legume is a source of the isoflavones genistein and daidizen, both showing great promise in the fight against cancer. Not only does sprouting Adzuki beans provide an even higher than normal isoflavone content, but these isoflavones are thought to be even more available for digestion. A bouble blessing. Quinoa Kinwa or Qin-wah…. However you say it, it’s packed with essential amino acids like lysine and good helpings of calcium, phosphorous and iron. The Andean civilisations knew a good thing – quinoa is a “super-grain”, due to a protein content that’s higher than rice, potatoes, barley and millet. It’s a great source of fibre, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. 4. CAROTENOIDS! A Combination of Organic carrot, beetroot and tomato powder. Both beta-carotene (orange phytonutrients in carrots) and lycopene (red-phytonutrients in tomatoes), are part of the anti-cancer carotenoid family. Studies have linked the antioxidant effects of lycopene to reducing heart disease, diabetes, macular degeneration, osteoporosis and cancers. Betacyanin is what gives beetroot it’s vibrant red colour, is a powerful detox agent and is shown to play a powerful role in the fight against cancer, particularly of the colon.

The Real Thing Mega Omega Supreme. 60 Capsules Mega Omega SUPREME delivers 1 600 mg of omega 3 per two-capsule dose – mostly DHA and EPA. OMEGA 3- Polyunsaturated fatty acids that are important for normal metabolism. What? The long-chain omega 3s, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are considered the most important fatty acids in the omega 3 family. They’re called “essential” fatty acids because, although your body needs them for healthy cellular functioning, it can’t produce them. So they will have to be obtained from the diet or from a pure and concentrated fish oil supplement.. The Real Thing Mega Omega Fish oil. Why? Getting the right amount of EPA and DHA can boost health on many levels – particularly when it comes to… Heart health Brain health ADHD, particularly in kids Where? To get the right amount of omega 3 you have to choose the right food and the right supplements – namely omega-3 dense foods like olive oil and oily fish, and mega-concentrated supplements like The Real Thing Mega Omega. OMEGA 6- is a family of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory Polyunsaturated fatty acids. The biological effects of the omega-6 fatty acids are largely produced during and after physical activity for the purpose of promoting growth and during inflammation to halt cell damage and promote cell repair. What? These omega 3 – such as gamma-linoleic acid and linoleic acid – are also “essential” fatty acids that the body needs but can’t manufacture. Why? In the correct ratio, omega 6s work with omega 3s to help… Build brain function and manage ADHD Reduce inflammation Prevent peripheral neuropathy in diabetics, and Help in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and PMS. But the correct ratio is the key. Where? Found mostly in vegetable oils and meat, they’re also present in plant-based oils, such as evening primrose oil, borage oil and black currant seed oil. OMEGA 9 What? Oleic acid, or omega 9 for short, can be made by the body in small amounts – but only if omega 3 and 6 are present. So this fatty acid is most often obtained through food. Why? It helps promote healthy immune function while reducing the risk of arteriosclerosis, heart disease and stroke. Once again, the right omega ratio is key. Where? It’s found in olive oil, avocados, nuts and borage oil. A BIT OF SCIENCE… WHAT MEGA OMEGA FISH OILS CAN DO FOR YOU 1. A HEALTHIER HEART Research has confirmed it: EPA- and DHA-rich fish oil supplements get to the heart of the cardiovascular system. How? By helping to… Reduce blood pressure Reduce “bad” LDL and triglyceride levels Raise “good” HDL cholesterol levels Lower the risk of thrombosis, atherosclerosis, heart disease, heart attack and stroke Promote recovery post-heart attack Other research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids can help with weight-loss and circulatory problems like varicose veins. They can also bring cardiovascular protection to diabetics, who often have low HDL levels, and high triglycerides. 2. A BRAINIER BRAIN Brain Food. That’s what mom calls it when she’s making fish for dinner. And it’s not just a hard-sell. It’s a scientific fact. This is because, in both children and adults, the long-chain omega 3s found in oily fish, have been shown to… Enhance memory Improve attention Promote concentration Help in the management of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), the most common neurological condition in children Help in the treatment and prevention of conditions like depression, schizophrenia, Huntington’s disease and Alzheimer’s Disease Help reduce symptoms of bipolar disorder in children. 3. MORE BODY BENEFITS The long-chain omega 3s might be most famous for their heart-helping, brain-building effects. But that’s not all. Just like an infomercial. They’ll throw in all of this too. Safer cell walls. EPA and DHA are central to maintaining the body’s most basic security systems – healthy cell membranes that prevent viral invasions and maintain a healthy water, nutrient and electrolyte balance. Harder working nerves. By helping to keep the myelin sheaths around nerves intact omega 3s provide better insulation meaning better signal conduction. Easier breathing. They help asthmatics to breathe easier by reducing inflammation and improving lung function. Better bones and joints. They also ease joint pain and inflammation in conditions like osteo- and rheumatoid arthritis. Plus, EPA can help increase calcium levels leading to better bone density and reduced risk of osteoporosis. Safer sight. Macular degeneration, a disease that can lead to blindness, has been shown to be significantly reduced by omega 3s. Healthy moms and babies. More than safe for pregnant women and babies, omega 3s can help to prevent premature births, low birth weights and, later, hyperactive children. Hope for mood management. Preliminary evidence suggests they could even help in the treatment of depression and anxiety. Pet protection. For older pets and those with skin conditions, allergies, arthritis, low immunity or a lack-lustre coat, mix 1 to 2 doses of Mega Omega Fish Oil into food daily. Dosage For maintenance, take 2 capsules daily with food. This can be increased to 2 capsules twice a day. Consult your health practitioner. Safe for pregnant women and kids.
