Sea Buckthorn Fruit/Berry: This flavorfully sour fruit goes by many names including “Sacred Fruit of the Himalayas” because it was highly prized by the Tibetans for over 1,000 years due to their many health-giving qualities such as boosting immunity, energy, improving heart health

and protecting against premature aging. It’s easy to understand why the plant has almost 200 bio-active compounds if you just see what kind of tough environmental conditions it’s able to survive in. In Tibet the plant grows 3,500 meters above sea level in very harsh weather. Sea buckthorn, therefore, needs to fortify itself against the harsh environment by producing many powerful nutrients in order to survive. Sea buckthorn is very rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids (EFA’s) which are so important for heart health, brain health, memory, concentration and healthy skin. It also contains a rare Omega 7 fatty acid which is not essential for our health (like Omega 3, 6 & 9 EFA’s) but beneficial nevertheless, which is good for your skin, which makes sea buckthorn the ONLY plant known to mankind to contain Omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 fatty acids! Sea buckthorn is also very high in antioxidants which help us destroy excess free radicals, one of the causes of premature aging, heart disease and even cancer (due to cell mutations which excess free radicals promote). It’s especially rich in antioxidants such as flavonoids, phenols and tannins. There are currently over 100 studies on the various health-giving substances within sea buckthorn fruits and the research is still uncovering new beneficial properties all the time. Sea buckthorn also contains B-vitamins, vitamin A, C, D, E, K and almost 20 minerals! It also contains not only complete protein (which is these 9 amino acids: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine/cysteine, phenylalanine/tyrosine, threonine, tryptophan and valine) but it actually contain 18 of the 20 known amino acids, and not just these 9. Talk about a powerhouse of nutrients from a fruit most of us have never even heard about (unless we lived in Tibet, of course)!


Scallions (Green Onions): Scallions are rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, iron, calcium & other minerals.
Scotch Bonnet Peppers: Named so because their shape somewhat resembles a traditional Scottish hat, Scotch bonnet peppers are not just hot but also have a wonderfully pleasant and slightly sweet flavor. It’s rich in vitamins C, A and other antioxidants. It can slow

signs of aging and help prevent some types of cancer. Due to its capsaicin content these and other chilis have shown some ability to destroy cancer cells (for example prostate cancer).


Seethaphal (Sugar Apple/Custard Apple): A great source of energy your body needs fiber. Loaded with fiber, vitamin B6, vitamin C, manganese, calcium and iron.
Sesame seeds: Sesame seeds are exceptionally rich in iron, magnesium, manganese, copper and calcium and also contain vitamin B1 and vitamin E. Sesame seems are one of the highest known sources of lignans which are anti-oxidant-like

types of phytoestrogens which have protecttive action against various kinds of cancers, heart disease and osteoporosis (lower bone density which can lead to bone fractures). Among the popular edible oils, sesame oil has the highest antioxidant content and the seeds also contain phytosterols associated with reduced levels of blood cholesterol. Sesame also has four times more calcium than cow’s milk.


Small Kidney Beans (Rajma): High in antioxidants, these beans score over 13,000 on the ORAC scale, which measures antioxidant content in foods. Antioxidants help fight excess free radicals which contribute to onset of heart disease, cancer, arthritis, faster aging and wrinkles.

Red kidney beans are also very high in both soluble and insoluble fiber, protein, iron and calcium, folic acid (vitamin B9), magnesium, iron, copper, zinc and other minerals.


Sorrel Leaves: These pleasantly “lemony tasting” leaves are a source of many vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, calcium, B-vitamins, etc. Sorrel leaves are very rich in antioxidants, especially a type called flavonoids. One such flavonoid which sorrel is famous

for is epicatechin which is what makes green tea so famous for its health-giving properties. Studies show that flavonoids and other antioxidants found in sorrel also have an anti-cancer protecting ability and can improve heart health and prevent heart disease as well as help to fight the overall aging of the body.


Spinach: Spinach is rich in antioxidants, vitamin A, B2, B9 (folic acid), C, E, protein and bone-friendly and heart-healthy vitamin K. It also has calcium, iron, magnesium manganese, potassium, copper, phosphorus, zinc, selenium and other nutrients. Contrary to

popular belief, greens including spinach have plenty of protein. On a per-calorie basis 30% of spinach is protein which is only slightly lower than beef (37%). Even fruit have protein – on the average about 6% of the calories! Spinach also has almost twice as much potassium, per serving, as bananas. Potassium to sodium ratios in our bodies is one of the keys to cutting our risk of death from heart disease by 50%.


Spinach: Spinach is rich in vitamins, calcium, iron & very rich in vitamin K1, which is converted in our bodies into vitamin K2, a very important vitamin for heart health which many people don’t get enough of. K2 is vital for signaling to the body “calcify bones, but

not arteries”. Without vitamin K2 calcium can be deposited into the arteries causing plaque formation (arterial calcification) and leading to heart disease, instead of being deposited into the bones which need the calcium! K2 is, therefore, important for healthy bones too. Spinach is also high in protein (30% on a per-calorie basis) which is comparable to beef – a surprising fact to many people.


Sprouts (all kinds): Sprouts are nutrient powerhouses and high in protein. Proteins in sprouts are easily assimilated in our bodies. They’re a clean and enzyme-rich fuel to our bodies.
Strawberries: Are the world’s most popular berries, the incredibly tasty and flavorful strawberries, be really that good for us? Their rich color is actually a good indicator that they certainly are! They contain a lot of antioxidants such as flavonoids, phenolic

phytochemicals and anthocyanins. These health-giving and disease-fighting anthocyanins are those pigments in berries & fruits which account for their rich red, purple or dark blue colors. The one big problem is that strawberries are very heavily sprayed with harmful pesticides and chemi-cals to help them stay beautiful, which are impossible to remove by washing the berries. Our strawberries, on the other hand, have passed strict quality control which includes testing for chemicals and microbiological contaminants, so enjoy all the benefits without worrying! Strawberries score high, over 4,000, on the ORAC scale which means they’re rich in antioxidants which, in our bodies, destroy excess free radicals, one of the causes of premature aging, heart disease, cancer, inflammation, arthritis, osteoporosis, wrinkles, DNA damage (from pollution, toxic exposures, diet, etc.) and other health challenges. Strawberries are rich in vitamin C and potassium and studies clearly show that if you get twice as much potassium in your diet as sodium, you de-crease the risk of dying of heart disease by 50%.


Sunflower Sprouts: Sprouts are considered a “superfood” because of their high nutritional qualities. Sunflower sprouts are high in protein (over 30%) and are loaded with fiber, minerals, powerful antioxidants and vitamins D and K which are both

very important for heart and bone health. Vitamin K is vital for signaling to the body “calcify bones, but not arteries”. Without vitamin K calcium can be deposited into the arteries, causing hardening of the arteries and heart attacks, instead of being deposited into the bones which need the calcium! Sunflower sprouts are also a good source of EFAs (essential fatty acids) which play an important role in brain function and maintaining healthy-looking skin. They contain an almost equal amounts of both monounsaturated (like in olive oil) and polyunsaturated fats which are not only great for heart health but, unlike saturated fats (which we need to minimize), these “good fats” can actually help you to lose weight or maintain your natural weight. As healthy as sunflower seeds already are, sprouting can multiply their nutrient content by 300% or more.


Superfood Blend: In India for the first time! A certified organic (no pesticides!) & chemical-free mix of the healthiest superfoods in the world: most powerful berries, fruits, greens, grasses, seaweeds, etc. in a synergistic blend. Its very high ORAC score means

that its ability to fight the excess free radicals, which age your body, is at its peak. This blend is naturally bursting with polyphenols, antioxidants, polysaccharides, bioflavonoids, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Maximum nutrition, a great immune system boost, optimal in its health-giving value, high in low-fat protein and wonderful anti-aging properties. The mix include organic and chemical-and-contaminant-free ingredients such as world-famous Goji berry, Mangosteen, Noni fruit, Pomegranate, Thin-Wall Chlorella, Spirulina, Alfalfa Leaf, Amla, Maca Root, Sea Buckthorn, and other great ingredients.


Sweet Potatoes: Frequently confused with yams due to their similarity in appearance and taste, sweet potatoes are not just more nutritious, but are actually one of the most densely nutritious foods there are! Just ¼ of a sweet potato gives you 2 times your daily

vitamin A needs and it’s loaded with calcium, iron, heart-friendly Omega 3 EFA’s, vitamin E and has twice as much protein as yams. It’s also loaded with anti-inflammatory compounds and yams have the opposite effect! It has a low glycemic index and great for diabetics as well. Long term usage can even help fight diabetes symptoms. Sweet potatoes are also rich in minerals such as potassium, magnesium, selenium, phosphorous, zinc, and copper.
