Blue Ice Cod Liver Oil - Cinnamon Tingle Liquid

237 ml bottle

$41.19 +tax

Many of the great historical cultures had one sacred food which they relied on to ensure strong mind, body, and spirit: Fermented fish/fish liver oil. The Mighty Roman Soldier was given a daily ration of fermented fish oil. The Stoic Scandinavian Viking had a drum of fermenting cod livers outside the door of his home. Grandma always had a bottle of cod liver oil in the back cupboard. Nutrient assays, including vitamins A and D, for these fermented oils vary widely depending on methodology, lab and batch. Current science struggles to answer the questions we have on our sacred fermented foods. There are many naturally occurring metabolites and co-factors that make the issue of measuring natural nutrients difficult in the fermented oils. We do know that historical cultures liberally consumed these sacred foods to great benefit without today’s standardization of knowledge. Allergy Statement: This product is made from wild caught fish and may contain other seafood allergens such as shellfish.

Blue Ice Cod Liver Oil - Oslo Orange Liquid

237 ml bottle

$41.19 +tax

Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil in liquid form, flavored with organic orange and lemon oil.

Cod Liver Oil is know to have high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, and very high levels of vitamin A and vitamin D. According to Blue Ice: "Fish oils have historically been fermented for extraction; back in the Roman empire days, Viking era and all the way up to the mid 1850’s. Rendering was introduced during the mid 1850’s as a more efficient fish liver processing method. The livers yielded a much higher total oil volume and the process could be accomplished in several hours rather than several months. What they did not understand is the effects that heat had on the nutrients; their science was not ready to address this question. As with all industrial models, the focus was on profitability, speed or turns and, marketability (taste)."

Dr. Cowan's Garden Horseradish Powder Miron Jar

71 grams Miron Jar

$25.00

Horseradish, a nutritional and medicinal standout, is a perennial in the brassicas family and is a close relative of wasabi. It has been considered a healing food since at least the time of Hippocrates, more than 2,000 years ago.

Traditionally, horseradish is paired with protein foods, especially meat and fish.   This pairing could have evolved because of its pungent taste and its strong ability to kill pathogenic organisms often found on meat in the days before refrigeration.   While the pathogen-killing part is not so relevant today, the culinary pairing of meat and horseradish is still a dynamic combination.

Horseradish has other well-documented medicinal benefits. The first is its effect on respiratory passages; it has been used as a food, an inhalation and added to compresses to help clear mucus from the sinus passages or lungs. Because of its high content of a plant chemical called sinigrin, a glucosinolate, horseradish not only can inhibit cells from becoming cancerous, it also can inhibit the metastasis of already formed cancer cells. These plant chemicals called glucosinolates are found in many brassicas plants, including broccoli sprouts and Brussels sprouts, but are particularly abundant in horseradish

Sprinkle on eggs, fish or any other protein-rich dish to easily incorporate this medicinal, hardy perennial vegetable into your diet. Our favorite way to use Horseradish Powder is to marinate steaks by dusting both sides with it and letting the steaks rest for a few hours before cooking. The strong enzymes in the horseradish help break down the meat fibers, making the final dish not only more flavorful but also more tender.  

Ingredients: Organic horseradish. Nothing else.

Dr. Cowan's Garden Leek Powder

Dr. Cowan's Garden Low Oxalate Greens Powder Miron Jar

4.2 oz Miron Jar (approx. 50 servings)

$45.00

Oxalates are found in the leaves of many plants. For some susceptible people, when excessive amounts of oxalates are ingested, they bind with calcium in the blood and cause both damaging inflammation and precipitation in the form of kidney stones. Lowering the oxalate intake in the diet is a way to prevent stone formation, reduce systemic inflammation and, in general, achieve better health.   The dilemma, however, is that a low-oxalate diet can lead to the avoidance of otherwise very beneficial foods, such as greens. That is why Dr. Cowan developed this Low-Oxalate Greens Powder. 

After researching the oxalate content of various greens, three emerged as the tastiest and nutritious while significantly lower in oxalates than others. Locally sourced, organic lacinato kale, collard greens and mustard leaves offer the health benefits from regular consumption of green vegetables while reducing oxalate exposure.

Inside this jar are approximately 50 servings! One teaspoon equals an average-size serving of the fresh vegetable. To use, sprinkle on salads, eggs, rice and quinoa, buttered popcorn, steamed or roasted vegetables, fish or chicken. Add to smoothies, soups, stews, pasta, spaghetti sauce – really, anything you enjoy eating! Try Low-Oxalate Greens Powder folded into scrambled eggs or sprinkled liberally over soft-cooked eggs.

Oxalate analysis (according to testing done at the University of Wyoming): Soluble oxalate: 47.9 mg oxalate/100 g  (3.9 mg oxalate per tablespoon (8.1 grams)). Total oxalate: 950 mg oxalate/100 g   (77.0 mg oxalate per Tablespoon (8.1 grams)).

From Dr. Michael Liebman, professor of Human Nutrition at the University of Wyoming: 

"Oxalate in foods can be divided into that which is water soluble and that which is insoluble in water. Total oxalate includes both soluble and insoluble oxalate.  There is quite a lot of evidence that soluble oxalate is better absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract that is insoluble oxalate, so a person who is sensitive to oxalates should be more concerned about the soluble oxalate (the vast majority of insoluble oxalate is probably not absorbed so is not an issue).  For this particular product, only a relatively small percentage of the total oxalate is soluble, so that is a positive."

Ingredients: organic lacinato ("dino") kale, mustard leaves, collard greens

Turmeric is aromatic and has notes of orange and ginger. Its pungent quality adds bold flavor to eggs, soups and stews, sauerkraut, a vegetable sauté over rice – really, almost anything you enjoy eating!

Raw Honey Trio- Golden Gate Neighborhood

3 3-oz. jars

$20.00

This trio makes a great host gift for Holiday parties! Alice Rosenthal, beekeeper and rescuer, likes to think of honey as in Forest Gump's famous line, "Local honey is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you might get". The beauty and surprise behind local wildflower honey is - you just don't know what you're gonna get. But one thing for sure - they are all going to taste great and different from each other. Alice of Golden Gate Neighborhood Honey, maintains slightly over 100 hives in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. The majority of maintained hives are from West Richmond, Upper Fruitvale, and North Oakland/South Berkeley. Most are wild honey that was harvested while rescuing and relocating honey bees in naturally occurring hives. The honey is processed differently when it is harvested from a wild environment. There are no frames to support the comb it must then be crushed (with hands) to liberate the honey. While harvesting the honey, small amounts of pollen and wax enter into the honey. Her efforts are helping our local bee populations happy and healthy.

Let's support her in keeping our local trees pollinated! These Jars are randomly picked form her many Wild harvests and make a great sampler of the huge varieties in flavor color and texture. The trios are random selections of three varieties: Hercules, Richmond Marina, El Sobrante, El Cerrito, Albany, Berkeley, Rockridge, Montclair, Fruitvale, Hayward, Claremont.

Bio-Kult

120 caplets

$56.98 +tax

This is a therapeutic grade probiotic recommended for people on the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) Diet.

According to their website: Bio-Kult is a unique multispecies, multistrain probiotic with 14 strains of beneficial bacteria. This means that Bio-Kult can deliver high concentrations of beneficial bacteria to the colonisation sites in the gut – and therefore be able to help a more diverse range of digestive disorders.

The beneficial bacteria in Bio-Kult are micro-encapsulated during the freeze drying process, which gives two main benefits:

1. They are protected from the harsh acid environment of the stomach and are therefore able to colonise the full length of the gastrointestinal tract.

2. The process allows Bio-Kult to be stored at room temperature without the need for refrigeration. Bio-Kult can be used on a continuous basis or for a short period of time, e.g. when taking antibiotics

Ingredients: Probiotic cultures [Bacillus subtilis PXN 21, Bifidobacterium spp. (B. bifidum PXN 23, B. breve PXN 25, B. infantis PXN 27, B. longum PXN 30), Lactobacillus spp. (L. acidophilus PXN 35, L. delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus PXN 39, L. casei PXN 37, L. plantarum PXN 47, L. rhamnosus PXN 54, L. helveticus PXN 45, L. salivarius PXN 57), Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis PXN 63, Streptococcus thermophilus PXN 66], Cellulose (bulking agent), Vegetable Capsule (Hydroxypropylmethyl Cellulose).

In addition, they return to the wild and plant more elderberry bushes. You can see this process highlighted in the infographic, The Journey of the Elderberry.

Dr. Catie Morse, a naturopathic physician, formulator, and founder of Dr. Appleseed’s Elderberry Extracts, hand harvests, with a group of close friends, Elderberries from pristine Pacific North West wild forests.

She takes the best of the old ways and overlays techniques and tools from modern food chemistry to ensure reproducibility and quality assurance in every batch.

Dr. Catie, and her team work in an organic, low chemical kitchen to produce and fill each jar by hand. Her process delivers the highest quantity possible of a special type of antioxidant.

The reason she can assure her product is the highest quality and most potent elderberry extract available is that she is present at every step of the process.

To ensure sustainability and give back to the land, Catie and her team make sure to leave plenty of berries behind for the birds and the bears. In addition, they return to the wild and plant more elderberry bushes. You can see this process highlighted in the infographic, The Journey of the Elderberry.

Dr. Appleseed's Elderberry Extract is made with native and edible west coast wild Elderberries, with no added sugar, alcohol or other additives. A percentage of proceeds go towards more native plant installations.

Servings per container: 24

Taproot Medicine Stabilizing Syrup

8 oz. bottle

$19.00
A daily tonic for busy humans. Stabilizing syrup is a honey-based tonic made with adaptogenic herbs. An adaptogen is a plant that increases the body’s resistance to damaging long-term and environmental stress. When the body goes through a stress response blood sugar levels peak, help us through the stressful moment, and then taper off. Adaptogens help to ‘smooth out’ these changes in blood sugar, which in turn helps us feel less frantic and more flexible. This syrup is made with nourishing adaptogens also known for their immune support, warming spices, and nutritive berries. This tastes good, and makes you feel like a rockstar. Ingredients: Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus), schizandra berry (Schizandra chinensis) reishi, (Ganaderma lucidum), ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), licorice (Glycyrrhoriza glabra), milky oat tops (Avena sativa), nettles (Urtica dioica), rosehips (Rosa spp.), clove, star anise, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, goji berries, honey, filtered well water, maple syrup, a touch o’ brandy, and a wellness wish.
