About Product Sources
Trust your intuition. You're here, so use our products first.
Once you have your baseline reference experience, then experiment with other products, if Spirit leads.
As you read over this very brief overview of product considerations ask yourself, "Have I ever read any of this anywhere before?"
Only trust product sources which are knowledgeable about nuances of quality and which also disclose these nuances to educate their customers, because people who disclose these details usually deal in pristine products.
Please be aware products with similar names can be worlds apart. Here are a few examples:
Cacao Products are light years apart. Cacao requires specific processing
to provide it's optimal magic. This includes:
- Slow, full fermentation, which allows micro organisms to consume their food supply, so they complete their life cycle. Incompletely fermented Cacao will smell of vinegar or mold and is best to put on your garden.
- Shell material should be removed. Cacao beans are surrounded by a shell containing many toxins. Most people focus on shell caffeine and there are many other far more toxic substances which exist to protect the beans from insects, so they remain viable and can grow trees. Our Cacao products have the majority of shell matter removed. This creates a more expensive, more delicious Cacao which embodies optimal effects.
Bottled, Bagged, Boxed Supplements usually contain hidden excipients, sugars,
fillers, genetic modified botanicals, irradiated/x-rayed components.
- Excipients are non-nutrient substances used to ease the powder fill process into containers and capsules. These substances, especially Magnesium Stearate, have been shown to destroy T-Cells (immune system function) and block nutrient uptake. You can read my past excipient articles for further information, including research abstracts. These substances are so toxic there is never a good reason to take in product which contains excipients. The few of our clients who seemed resistant to all health upgrades all became hyper responsive, once all excipient intake ceased. Further, I suggest you only do business with excipient free companies such as Radical Health.
- Hidden sugars and fillers are used to increase profits, by decreasing actual amount of packaged material. We use no hidden sugars or fillers, which is reflected in our prices.
- Genetic Modified Botanicals, or Franken-Foods, are only for serious, hardcore thrill-seekers. Eating Franken-Foods allow thrill-seekers the unique opportunity to participate in the greatest, mass scientific experiment ever conducted. No one knows the outcome and if you desire optimal health, you may prefer to avoid Franken-Foods at every turn.
- Irradiation & X-Rays are right up there with Franken-Foods. When foods are nuclear irradiated or even microwaved, they are instantly and completely denatured. What remains is toxic debris which requires massive energy to eliminate.
- Blue Green Algae is an amazing product when and only when it's Natural State. Most Algae products are freeze dried, heated or processed incorrectly. You can judge quality of Algae products by their color. Natural State Blue Green Algae is iridescence and is the color of Scarab Beetles (Egyptian symbol of immortality).
- Synthetics & Isolates are a class of Fraken-Foods right up there with GMO botanicals. This class of substances includes most supplement components. One example is B12, which is the substance from which DNA is synthesized. Some researchers have suggested a primary contributer to Cancer in people with no other predisposition may be eating B12 supplements, which produce DNA synthesized out of synthetic B12 which may devolve by replicative failure until systemic Cancer appears out of the blue. Another example is ascorbic acid, which is very different than Natural State Vitamin C. Eating ascorbic acid supplements and foods with hidden ascorbic acid used as a preservative is a primary contributer to rapid aging as ascorbic acid disrupts cellular oxygen metabolism.
- Gray Sea Salt is a quiet offender. We stopped selling this product when we discovered the gray color was petroleum residue. In fact, there have been several times over the past few years the French Salt Ministry has banned export of Gray Salt because petroleum concentrations were so high it was feared people would stop using Gray Salt and the French salt market might collapse.
- Himalayan Salt is another quiet offender. We source our own Himalayan Salt now because most Himalayan Salt is ground with low grade, soft Nickel grinders. This outcome of this is most Himalayan Salt is full of atomized Nickel dust, which is far more toxic than Mercury.
- Hemp Seeds, Bee Pollen, Maca all require cold storage. We freezer store ours. At room temperature these products 'cook' or oxidize, especially if ground as powder. When tasting these, you'll know they are good if the flavors are sharp with no aftertaste.
- Guarana & Yerba Matte which are commercially available are many times boiled at high heat for months. This destroys their adaptogenic qualities turning them into stimulants almost as toxic as methamphetamines. Our Guarana and Yerba Matte are Natural State and if used prior to bed have a relaxing effect. This is the hallmark of perfect adaptogenic character. Adaptogens will support energy or rest, depending on what's most required in each moment.
- 100% Coconut Products are a most challenging situation. The primary 100% Coconut Flour sold by Raw Food companies is 40% milk & sugar. Our Coconut Flour is 100% Coconut and required years to bring to market.
- Agave Nectar is a great product, when it's really Raw. When Agave Nectar is heated it's Inulin is disabled. Inulin is the substance which resists and defers the majority of digestion to the small intestine and colon. Inulin is also Prebiotic, supporting rapid multiplication of friendly intestinal flora (bacteria) which is essential to nutrient uptake.
