January AND February’s ‘At-Cost’ Spec!als:

Straight from our Maca fields, which are located at 13,000 foot elevation in a National Reserv*e in Peru, we’ve started to separate out all of the Maca colors and we’ve created some new revolutionary products that have never been seen before, especially at this high grade of quality! We are now offering ‘At-Cost’ Black Maca, Black Gelatinized Maca, and Red Gelatinized Maca.

Clinical studies show that these three Superfoods have the potential to be extremely beneficial for many human maladies. If you missed my recent must-see article that explains all these benefits, including improved memory and learning, increase in sper*m count, increase in bone density and so much more, I recommend checking that article out by clicking here.

jarrahbee.jpg The Jarrah Bee Pollen craze started about 5 months ago when Angela and I did a “Green Smoothie for Kids” video here. This Jarrah Bee Pollen tastes just like candy, but due to the high cost of it, we just assumed people wouldn’t want it, so we never carried it on our website. However, in that smoothie video, we were topping the smoothie with this pollen, as usual, and describing how amazing it tastes. As soon as that video went out, we had many people begging us to carry this pollen! We had assumed that the price of $38.99 for an 8oz bag was too much for most people, and that people wouldn’t want it. So we went to the middle man supplier and ordered only 200 bags and they flew off the shelves in just a few days!

We weren’t able to offer this pollen ‘At-Cost’ back then due to the high cost and low margins. However, we recently went directly to the source of this pollen and bought out their entire stock. We got it at a lower price, so that we can now offer it ‘At-Cost’ to you today. We have over 1200 bags of this premium pollen and this is the last of the harvest until 2015. This Jarrah Bee Pollen is the best tasting bee pollen in the worldAgain… it is literally like candy!

Jarrah Pollen is gathered by bees from the blooms of the Jarrah Tree. The tree is native to Western Australia, where it is a valuable source of pollen and nectar from September to January. Compared with other pollens, Jarrah has several traits which set it apart. The bright yellow pollen is gathered when other sources are not blooming, resulting in a single color pollen of unparalleled taste and crunchiness. In addition, the area the pollen is gathered from is fam0us for its clean environment. Nutritionally, Jarrah Pollen averages around 20% protein, with all 18 amino acids. Its fatty ac!d content is around .6%, which is dominant in the essential, linoleic ac!d. Pollen’s normal macro and micronutrients are present, along with naturally high levels of potassium, phosphorous, calcium, iron, manganese, and zinc. Jarrah makes a great mixing pollen. With its delicious, sweet and wonderful taste Jarrah improves the taste of any other pollen it is combined with. Eaten alone it is in a class to itself!

I know that many of you are going to be very excited that we are offering Bariani Olive Oil ‘At-Cost’ this month too! Bariani Olive Oil is hands down the best g0urmet Olive Oil in the world, guaranteed. A couple of years ago I gave my mom a bottle of this stuff and ever since then, she makes me supply her with it on a monthly basis. 15 years ago when I first entered into the ‘Raw Foods Movement’, this was and still is the Olive Oil of choice for this industry. Trust me, if you like Olive Oil, then you want to give Bariani a try. barioil.jpg
colostrum1.jpg Next on the list we have Surthrival’s Colostrum ‘At-Cost’. This Colostrum is ethically-harvested from USDA Grade A cows. I have heard of people putting spoonfuls of this stuff mixed with berries for their morning breakfast. People go nutzo about the taste of this powdered colostrum and even just eat it by the spoonful! We are offering the kilo size of the Colostrum ‘At-Cost’ this month and I know that it is going to fly off the shelves.
We are also offering ‘At-Cost’ this month Hazelnuts, Stone-Ground Hazelnut Butter and Pecan Butter. Grown in the pristine countryside of Sicily, these truly raw and organic Hazelnuts are delcious! Our Hazelnuts have a rich flavor with the perfect hint of sweetness. We are also offering the incredible Stone-Ground Hazelnut Butter, which actually uses these exact same Hazelnuts! Additionally, we are also offering Wilderness Poets ridiculously-good tasting Pecan Butter! butters2
tomatoesapricots.jpg I know everyone is going to be extremely excited that we are offering Sundried Tomatoes ‘At-Cost’. This is definitely a raw food staple in many people’s lives. We also have our Organic Raw Pistachios in the shells, which are dried at low temperatures under 108 degrees, so that the enzymes and vital nutrients stay intact. Our Dried Apricots come from the primeval mountains on the plateaux of Uzbekistan, a region which has never seen the use of pesticides. They are harvested from the wild and they are the best tasting Apricots available. We are also offering Sunflower Seeds at an incredible ‘At-Cost’ Price!
Next we have the three top products from Jing Herbs At-Cost this month too! These are probably the three most popular traditional Eastern medicinal extracts that we carry on our website; He Shou Wu Extract, Ye Sheng Reishi Extract, and Astragalus Extract. He Shou Wu has been prized for centuries because of its reported qualities of preventing premature aging and enhancing longevity and youthfulness. Reishi Mushroom is one of the most powerful superfoods in the world, which has the potential to boost our immune system like nothing else…and Astragalus is a first class herb, which is said to help maintain a healthy immune system and to be a premium energy tonic for athletes and anyone looking for more day-to-day energy and vitality. We also have Jing Herbs’ Chaga Powder. Chaga is a medicinal mushroom that is reported to have strong immune enhancing properties, high levels of antioxidants, and anti-viral properties. JingHerbsTop3.jpg
msmP73.jpg Next on the list we’ve got out MSM caps!. MSM is said to help with dealing with inflammat!on and allerg!es and supporting connective tissue, skin, nails, and hair.

We also have the oh-so-popular Oreganol P73, which is true wild Oregano Oil P73, grown in mineral rich soils. This growing condition along with the manufacturer’s dedication to a chemical and alcoh0l fre*e extraction is the reason P73 Oreganol Oil has a unique chemical profile, which is ideal for human consumption. This same Oregano species can be grown elsewhere and not have the same effect of the P73; it is truly one of a kind. Oreganol P73 can be used either internally or topically.

I am also really excited to be offering all three flavors of the Mauk Family Crust Crackers this month! These crackers have been around for a long time in the health scene and I am sure many of you have seen them before in health food stores. They are so good and thick and an ideal replacement for bread. These are going to fly off the shelves too, I am sure. My mom also loves these crusts and says she couldn’t do her awesome whole foods d!et without these! They are totally her bread replacement. crust1.jpg
lovetruff.jpg Ok… Drum roll please… we also have Lulu’s Love Truffles and Maca Buttercups ‘At-Cost’ this month. These Truffles and Buttercups are extremely spec!al and are the number one raw chocolate products that I give to people as gifts. The Truffles are raw chocolate cradling a rich nutella-like center. The center is a handcrafted mix of fresh/soaked/dehydrated organic hazelnuts slowly stone ground with cacao nibs & coconut sugar. The Buttercups feature maca and sprouted almond butter entwined in divine union with a chocolate shell. These hand-crafted cups of creamy-rich perfection are also lovingly sprinkled with Fleur de Sel sea salt.
Alongside these Raw Chocolate Buttercups and Truffles, we are also offering our Double-Dipped Dark Raw Chocolate Black Mission Figs!
Oh man! I’m salivating just thinking about these! These beautiful heirloom figs from California are double dipped in a creamy dark raw chocolate, smothering the surface – divine!
missionfig.jpg
vigeats4pack.jpg Vigilant Eats just came out with three new flavors of cereals! Everyone went nutzo over their original Goji flavor. Now these other three flavors are off the charts! These Vigilant Eat cereals are a lot of fun. You simply remove the foil top and you can add water, milk, nut milk, coconut water or any other liquid and you have an instant cereal. Although they are not 100% Raw, they still make a very healthy quick breakfast.
We are also offering a variety of Living Intentions’ flavored nuts ‘At-Cost’, which the majority of people go *nuts* over, especially when they are on spec!al like this. We are offering two of their really yummy-tasting flavors, one of which has pistachios and the other has almonds.

We are also offering an incredible tasting Trailmix. The ‘Walnut Inspiration’ is a blend of activated organic walnuts, goji berries, mulberries, and sweetened balinese cacao nibs.

livintwal.jpg
rawkinchoc.jpg Also, the Rawkin Raw Cookies/Macaroons are being offered ‘At-Cost’ this month. They are so good that we send a few of them to us in Ecuador every time we get things sent to us. Angela loves the Spirulina Mint flavor!
Next up we have our fam0us nut milk bags! These are high-quality nut milk and sprouting bags, handmade, and way superior to the others on the market. These bags are quality tested to ensure that you receive the finest product. These bags are ideal for any number of straining or sprouting uses. Fine mesh material minimizes sediment and allows for sprouting of even the smallest of seeds and grains, while bias cut, surge sewn construction ensures durability. These nut milk bags are highly reusable. They can be used for nut milks, straining juices, sprouting and so much more. It’s so much easier and faster than using a strainer. The drawstring top also means you can just hang the bag up and let it do its own thing! nutmilkbag.jpg
bestskinpits.jpg i know that people are going to be stoked that we are offering two products from Living Libations that we’ve never offered ‘At-Cost’ before! We are offering the most popular scent of their ‘Best Skin Ever’ and ‘Poetic Pits’!

The Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever is a fragrant oil that has the potential to moisten & brilliantly tone the skin. Tree Majesty Poetic Pits is a beautiful, sublime deodorant designed to emanate the fragrant glow of your pits. Pure organic undiluted sandalwood, cardamom, and douglas fir. One stroke works like a charm!

We are also offering two scents of MSM Lotion ‘At-Cost’ this month. MSM has lots of sulfur and is said to be great for healing skin. People love dousing this liquid MSM Lotion topically all over their bodies. Of course, these MSM Lotions are all natural and fre*e of any chemicals.

T0ngue Cleaning is one of the best things for bad breath. These T0ngue Cleaners are made of stainless steel and the curved cleaning edge helps remove bacteria and soft plaque in seconds! Cleaning your t0ngue is comfortable, quick and effective with Dr. Tungs!

tongueclean.jpg
orange.jpg We’ve also got Orange TKO in this month’s ‘At-Cost’ specials. Angela and I don’t like using any chemicals in our house. People often look at us like we are strange when we only clean our dishes with water and nothing else. Orange TKO is an ideal all-in-one house cleaning product. Although we don’t use this on our dishes, we do use it to mop our floors, counters and anything else that needs cleaning. It is all-natural and gives a pleasant orange smell, because it is a citrus cleaner/degreaser made from the peel of oranges. It is an emulsifier, containing no synthetic chemicals, petroleum distillates, or detergents. It is 100% environmentally friendly, biodegradable, and non-toxic. Orange TKO comes as a concentrate that can be diluted with water. It is strong enough to handle even the toughest industrial cleaning issues, yet is also safe enough to use in the home around children and animals.
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion is a smooth, quickly absorbed emulsion of magnesium chloride in a skin-nourishing base of certified organic oils. Formulated for even the most sensitive individuals, Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion offers a gentler concentration of magnesium chloride than our magnesium oil or gel products, while still supplying therapeutically effective amounts of magnesium to the cells. Rich in plant moisturizers including coconut oil and shea butter, this lotion soothes and hydrates without leaving your skin feeling waxy or greasy. Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion is fragrance fre*e and does not contain any formaldehyde-releasing preservatives. goodnightoil.jpg

Victoria’s Response to Criticism of Green Smoothies

Victoria's Response to Criticism of Green Smoothies With Childrens Book Hundreds of thousands of people around the globe are happily consuming green smoothies. My inbox is overflowing with testimonials of amazing recoveries that I receive daily from green smoothie drinkers. We have videotaped testimonials from people who started drinking green smoothies and were able to reverse heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes type II, and many other conditions.

However, as Franklin D. Roosevelt said, "There are as many opinions as there are experts." For this reason, once in a while I run into counter claims. Below are my answers to some of them.

1. Claim: Blending destroys fiber.

My answer: I verified what science has to say about blending fiber. I was able to find several studies that conclude that "particle size of the fiber source did not affect performance." 1 The most interesting research article I found was from, "Gut," an international peer-reviewed journal for health professionals and researchers in gastroenterology & hepatology. Volume 37, Issue 2: "Effect of bran particle size on gastric emptying and small bowel transit in humans." Authors R Vincent, A Roberts, et al, compared bran particles of 2 mm to less than .7 mm.

This study found that both fine and coarse fiber have only 2% difference in performance, favoring the smaller fiber. Moreover, the researchers stated "Fine bran causes less disturbance of gastric physiology than coarse bran" 2 and discussed how finely ground fiber increases nutrient absorption, and reduces bloating, heartburn, and constipation.

2. Claim: Blending destroys 90% of nutrients.

In an interview (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/12/01/food-medicine-hippocrates-health-institute.aspx?e_cid=20131201Z1A_PRSNL_Art_1&utm_source=prmrsnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1&utm_campaign=20131201Z1A&et_cid=DM34534&et_rid=354427138) two respectable doctors bring a wealth of information on a natural healing. Towards the end of the interview, Dr. Clement states that "blending your veggies using a blender can kill up to 90 percent of the nutrients in 90 seconds." Next, in contradiction to his own statement he explains, that "vitamins A, E, C; the basic five nutrients are killed in 90 seconds of blending with a high-speed blender."
There is a big difference between these two statements:

• blending can kill up to 90 percent of [all] the nutrients;
• 90 percent of the basic five nutrients are killed by blending

There are many studies done in the US, in Netherlands, and in other countries. For example, here is one scientific study, which compares blending and juicing. In the following statement (I have highlighted the most important content.)

"Due to the consumer’s interest in obtaining high levels of phytochemicals, it is important to understand the changes in their levels by common household processing techniques. Therefore, mature Texas "Rio Red" grapefruits were processed by some of the common household processing practices such as blending, juicing, and hand squeezing techniques and analyzed for their phytochemical content by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Results suggest that grapefruit juice processed by blending had significantly (P < 0.05) higher levels of flavonoids (narirutin, naringin, hesperidin, neohesperidin, didymin, and poncirin) and limonin compared to juicing and hand squeezing. No significant variation in their content was noticed in the juice processed by juicing and hand squeezing. Ascorbic acid and citric acid were significantly (P < 0.05) higher in juice processed by juicing and blending, respectively. Furthermore, hand squeezed fruit juice had significantly higher contents of dihydroxybergamottin (DHB) than juice processed by juicing and blending. Bergamottin and 5-methoxy-7 gernoxycoumarin (5-M-7-GC) were significantly higher in blended juice compared to juicing and hand squeezing. Therefore, consuming grapefruit juice processed by blending may provide higher levels of health beneficial phytochemicals." 3

From my personal observation, I seriously doubt that blending destroys vitamin C because I witnessed countless times how people who consume green smoothies on a regular basis, tested outstandingly high both in vitamin C and in antioxidants tests.

3. Claim: Oxalic acid in spinach and other greens cause kidney stones

To answer this claim, I have written an article where I present lots of citations from original research documents.

About 85% of all kidney stones contain calcium salts, calcium oxalate and/or calcium phosphate. It seems logical to connect calcium oxalate with oxalic acid in some foods, such as spinach, soy, tea, coffee, wheat, and some others. However, you will not find any scientifically documented evidence that oxalic acid in food causes the formation of kidney stones. On the contrary, substantial scientific research in different countries has demonstrated that oxalic acid from food plays an insignificant role in the formation of kidney stones.

Excesses in Animal Protein are a Major Risk Factors in Kidney Stones Formation. You may read the rest of this article on my blog.

4. Claim: Fruits are too sweet for you

I completely understand how eating only unripe, conventionally grown fruit might be considered to be harmful to health. Some of you might wonder, what can I do if I don t have access to high quality fruit? First of all, become aware. Second, go to U-pick farms in the summer and freeze berries and fruit for your winter. Third, talk to your local farmers and see if they can help you find a way to provide you with organic produce. Finally, watch Valya s presentation on Espalier and harvest your own perfect fruit.

It is my opinion that fruit, if it s ripe and organic, is an essential part of the human diet. Even in Northern Siberia, where there is a permanent frost, people gather both sweet and sour berries in the summer. However I don t recommend a completely fruitarian diet because it is not complete. Greens are the most nutritious food on our planet. In my food pyramid greens take the first place and ripe organic fruit takes the second. You may read the rest of this article on my blog.

Everyone should eat more greens. By consuming green smoothies, my body is able to absorb up to two bunches (two pounds) of greens every day. That is why I choose to encourage people to consume green smoothies.

If alternative doctors will fight with each other over non-essential particulars of natural healing, we may only confuse people. Moreover, we may become easy prey for the medical establishment s criticism. Instead, let us unite on whatever common grounds we share.

Refreshment from Oregon

Snow at the BoutenkosDear Friends,

This is a view from my window here in Ashland, Southern Oregon. The frost last week was so strong that despite the water left dripping overnight, all the pipes in our house froze and didnt thaw for four days.

Sergei didnt want to wait for a warm shower at home and went for a swim in the lake. You can see him swimming in the middle of lake here:

Swimming in a frozen lake

Very clean and refreshed Sergei here:
