Fine Granulated Himalayan Pink Salt Millions of years ago, two continents collided and the magnificent Himalayan Mountain range was formed. As the mountains rose out of the ocean, they took with them large deposits of salt. These deposits were formed long before man polluted the oceans with toxins and heavy metals, and to this day, remain pure. Our Himalayan Salt is a wholesome, unprocessed natural salt that comes from the East Karakoram range of the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan. Our Fine-Granulated Himalayan Salt is hand crushed for use in your salt shaker. It has all the characteristics of the original crystals from which it comes, and it has a distinctive ?alive? taste that's naturally delicious. Slightly pink in color. You can use this precious salt to help you balance your energy and improve your health. Incorporate Himalayan Crystal Salt into your cooking or seasoning, or make a mineral infusion called sole (pronounced so-lay) with pure water. It can also be used to create a therapeutic and healing saltwater bath solution. Himalayan Crystal Salt Himalayan Crystal Salt has a wide range of exciting characteristics: Over 250 million years old Captivating pink diamond-like crystals from within the Himalayan Mountains Contains all minerals and trace elements essential to the body's health High crystalline structure allows the nutrients to be absorbed at the cellular level Can restore the body's alkaline balance and electrolytes Extensively researched Hand mined with respect for nature, the environment, and the workers Common table salt, which is basically sodium chloride, has numerous known health risks. Our bodies recognize it as an unnatural substance and try to eliminate it as quickly as possible, overburdening our organs of excretion. Because we are only able to excrete a limited amount of it through our kidneys, our bodies use cell water to neutralize it, causing cell dehydration as well as overly acidic edema, or excess fluid in the body tissue. High levels of sodium chloride also lead to overproduction of uric acid, which binds with the sodium chloride, resulting in arthritis, gout, and kidney and gall bladder stones. In contrast, natural salt or its inherent elements is needed for even the simplest processes in our body. When we lack the natural elements in salt, we suffer from a chronic energy deficit. And, despite the large quantities of sodium chloride we consume, most of us have inadequate natural salt intake. Fortunately, there is an easy solution to our salt deficit. Incorporate Himalayan Salt into your cooking or seasoning on a daily basis. And to make sure you are receiving the full benefits of the salt, make a mineral infusion called sole (pronounced so-lay; from the Latin word for ?sun?) from salt and pure water, and use it to balance your energy and improve your health simply and naturally. A recent study utilizing Himalayan Salt and a high-quality bottled artesian water (FIJI Water), demonstrated the beneficial effects of using sole: Remineralizes the body with 80+ minerals and trace elements essential to health Replenishes electrolytes and helps to balance the body's pH Causes significant positive changes in respiratory, circulatory, organ, connective tissue, and nervous system functions Patients who drank the artesian water and used Himalayan Salt also reported increases in quality of sleep, energy and concentration levels, brain activity, and nail and hair growth. Our Himalayan Salt is hand mined to preserve its bio-energetic qualities with low environmental impact. We carry it in three forms: fine granulated, coarse, and stones (used for making sole).

Coconut Secret Coconut Nectar When the coconut tree is tapped, it produces a naturally sweet, nutrient-rich 'sap' that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This sap has a very low glycemic index score and contains 17 amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH. This sweet nectar has a mild flavor, not a "coconutty" flavor, and is an ideal sweetener. Small batches ensure that Coconut Secret's pure, low glycemic nectar, made from this natural sap, is a raw, enzymatically alive product, minimally evaporated at low temperatures (only to remove excess moisture and allow sap to thicken), never exceeding an average summer day in the tropics. Some agave syrups are hydrolyzed at temps up to 140 degrees F for 36 hours, the end product containing 90% fructose, compared to sap nectar which is only 0.5% glucose, 1.5% fructose, 16% sucrose, and 82% inulin. Coconut Nectar Recipe Tips The naturally sweet, mild flavor of Coconut Secret Nectar is an ideal sweetener for use on pancakes, over cereal, in tea, smoothies and all your favorite dessert recipes. It does not have a strong coconut flavor. Ingredients: raw coconut sap grown without chemicals, pesticides or herbicides. Note: Each handmade batch may vary slightly in color, flavor, and glycemic index. Depending on the season and weather conditions, the GI of this product may range plus/minus 5 points, the average being a glycemic index of 35.

Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos Soy-free Seasoning Sauce Delicious, soy-free seasoning sauce made with nutrient-dense coconut 'sap' offering 17 naturally occurring amino acids, paired with mineral-rich sea salt from the Philippine island of Mindanao. When the coconut tree is tapped, it produces a highly nutrient-rich 'sap' from the coconut blossoms. This sap is very low glycemic (GI of only 35), is an abundant source of 17 amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH. Small batches ensure that Coconut Secret's organic Coconut Aminos, made from this natural sap, is a raw, enzymatically alive product that never exceeds the temperatures of an average summer day in the tropics. The "Gran Molucas Sea Salt" used in Coconut Aminos, garners its name from the exotic, tropical island of Mindanao, the second largest island in the Philippines. It is surrounded on all sides by converging Pacific Ocean waters - the Sulu Sea to the west, the Celebes Sea to the south, the the Philippine Sea to the east. A local culinary heritage in Mindanao, this unbleached, unrefined, naturally white sea salt, is fed only by the sun and the sea. It is hand-harvested by local salt producers working as their forefathers did, in their ancestral salt fields. After many days of labor, the salt is then sun-dried (to evaporate excess moisture) in open-air cages lined with clay bricks. The result is a distinctly flavorful and nutritious, mineral-rich, unrefined sea salt. Coconut Aminos vs Soy-based sauces Among the many nutritional benefits of Coconut Aminos, the most notable is its impressive amino acid content compared to soy-based sauces. Commonly described as the 'building blocks of protein', amino acids are vitally important to human health. They contribute to the repair and rebuilding of muscle tissue, help to enhance overall brain and nervous system function, and assist in boosting the immune system and physical energy levels. Second only to water, protein is one of the most important substances in our bodies, which is why it's nutritionally beneficial to consume a diet that is rich in amino acids. A comparison between coconut tree sap and soy shows that coconut sap contains up to 14 times the amino acid content of soy. Many soy sauces on the market are fermented by first soaking the soybeans in water and salt, and then adding specific cultures of molds, yeasts, and bacteria to help catalyze the fermentation process. Coconut Aminos is made from coconut tree sap, which comes right out of the tree so vital, active and alive with nutrients, that it is only blended with sun dried mineral-rich sea salt and aged, without the need for a fermentation booster or added water. As well, the majority of conventional soy sauces on the market are made with non-organic, genetically modified (GMO) soybeans. Long term used of unfermented soy-related products has led to an increase in soy allergies, a disruption in proper thyroid function, and an overlaod of estrogens in the body. Recipe Tips Use Coconut Aminos like soy sauce in dressings, marinades, sautes, and with sushi. "We pour it on almost everything." Ingredients Certified organic raw coconut sap, naturally aged and blended with sun-dried, mineral-rich sea salt. This product is bottled in a facility that does not handle or process tree nuts of any kind. Note: Each hand-made batch may vary slightly in flavor and color. Due to the natural effervescence of this product, the contents may fizz when opened. Even though completely stable at room temperature for up to 3 years, if desiered, you may refrigerate after opening to reduce the fizzy effect. Certified organic, raw, gluten-free, soy-free, diary-free, vegan, and Non-GMO.

Live Superfoods Organic Coconut Water Powder Coconut water is a refreshing and hydrating beverage full of natural electrolytes and beneficial nutrients. Our Coconut Water Powder comes from USDA-certified organic coconut water that has been evaporated to become a delightfully delicious powder. Coconut Water Powder is water soluble and can easily be rehydrated to become a delicately flavored all-natural beverage with no additives or sweeteners. Enjoy refreshing and nutritious Coconut Water on the go, anytime. About Coconut Water Coconut Water has been enjoyed for thousands of years by Asian and Pacific cultures. The Hawaiians called it "noelani", which means "dew from the heavens". Our Coconut Water Powder comes from coconuts organically grown in the Phillipine Islands by subsistence farmers using traditional sustainable farming practices, including intercropping with compatible native species and fertilisation with palm fronds and natural sea salt. Many of these trees are so healthy that they continue to produce coconuts at 60 to 80 years of age. Partnerships with Phillipine organic organizations provide regular training for growers, supplies organic coconut seedlings, and offers certification assistance to ensure quality organic production, and to support sustainable growing practices. Here in the Phillipines, coconut trees are watered by almost daily tropical downpours, and are warmed by the tropical sun. When the coconuts reach optimum ripeness, around 9 to 10 months of age, they are hand harvested using traditional harvesting tools and immediately processed. Our Coconut Water Powder is evaporated in a modern, state-of-the-art facility to preserve the delicate flavor and natural nutrients present in the coconuts. The result is a high quality, certifed organic coconut water powder that is easy and convenient to use, with long lasting freshness. Our Coconut Water Powder will remain fresh for two years, if stored away from sunlight and moisture, and kept below 85° (F) / 30° (C). Benefits of Coconut Water Coconut water can out-perform sports drinks or sugary sodas, and hydrate better than regular H20, thanks to its unique nutritional profile. Studies on coconut water show that it can replace body fluids just as well as a typical sports drink, and slightly better than water. Sodas and sports drinks can be full of additional chemicals, sugars, and sweeteners, none of which are found in pure coconut water. Coconut water is also a very abundant source of natural electrolytes, including potassium, a nutrient that plays a key role in maintaining muscle and nerve function. B vitamins, minerals, and trace elements including zinc, selenium, iodine, sulfur, and manganese, plus amino acids, enzymes, antioxidant and phytonutrients round out the impressive array of nutritional benefits included in each serving of coconut water. Coconut water is the richest dietary source of cytokinins, phytohormones that promote cell division, which may have anti-aging effects on human cells and tissues. Coconut water is alkalizing, and may help to restore a natural pH balance in the body and counter the effects of an acidic diet. How to Use Coconut Water Powder One taste of our Coconut Water Powder and the subtle, delicate flavor of natural coconut will transport you to a sun-kissed island retreat. Add Coconut Water Powder to water, where it will easily rehydrate to a refreshing, coconut flavored beverage. Add it to soda-water for a fizzy and fun, sugar free soda. Coconut Water naturally pairs well with exotic fruit drinks like lychee, acai, mango, or pineapple. The powdered form is easy to transport, and convenient to use, just add and stir to any liquid. Serving Suggestion: 1 tablespoon of coconut water powder added to 8 oz of water is equal to single strength coconut water. Our Coconut Water Powder is USDA-certified organic, Kosher, and GMO-free. 8 oz in a resealable package
Coconut Secret Raw Coconut Flour Coconut Secret's raw coconut flour is made in small batches from unheated coconut meat and dried using a proprietary tumbler-dry method. Coconut flour is gluten-free, very low carb, actually lowers the calorie content of food, contains 40% dietary fiber, promotes lipid oxidation (helps burn fat), aids in digestive health, and helps balance blood sugar levels. Unbleached and unrefined. Vegan. Recipe Tips Use for baking, to thicken gravy, or as a supplement to super-boost fiber content in smoothies and any recipe. Coconut flour readily absorbs moisture, so we suggest that you blend with other flours at a ratio of 1/4 cup coconut flour to 3/4 cup alternate flour. A second popular option for those wishing to use 100% coconut flour, is the addition of eggs at a ratio of 4 eggs to 1/2 cup flour. Since coconut flour is gluten-free, eggs act as a gluten substitute in any recipe. It can also be helpful to increase the liquid content in coconut flour recipes by adding an extra 1:1 ratio of liquid per equal amount of flour. Ingredients: Certified organic raw coconut flour
