The Powerful Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Sacha Inchi Powder

We’ve all heard the health hype about the importance of omega-3 fatty acids. If you’re following the recommendations, you probably know that several types of fish and nuts are excellent sources of this essential fat.  But here’s one food you may not know about that is a powerful source of omega-3 fatty acids:  Sacha Inchi Powder

Sacha Inchi is a phenomenal star-shaped superfood nut from the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest in the Andes Mountains.  It has been used for centuries for its natural health and wellness benefits.  Sacha Inchi is often called the Incan Peanut because the fruit of the plant resembles the common nut.

However, Sacha Inchi is far from common.  It is best known for its incredible potency in omega-3 fatty acids, as well as a good source of protein, amino acids, Vitamin A and Vitamin E.  Plus, their delicious nut-like flavor makes this an excellent omega-rich dietary choice for vegans and those who do not like fish.

The hype about omega fatty acids is all true.  They are an extraordinary fat that helps protect the brain, heart, bones and all cellular functions.  Omega-3s help combat internal swelling that leads to many diseases and degenerative conditions.  Studies show it may improve mental health, reverse age-related cognitive deterioration, improve the cardiovascular system, reduce LDL cholesterol and triglycerides within normal limits, support healthy blood pressure levels and circulation, improve vision, and shield cells from free radicals and other pathogens that threaten their wellbeing.

Omega-3 fatty acids are a vital part of the human diet because we don’t produce them ourselves.  Our only source of omega-3s is from food.  Fish oils are hard to digest but Sacha Inchi is one of the most easily digestible forms of omega-3 fatty acids.  It is also more potent in omegas that most other food sources.  For example, Sacha Inchi has 3 times the amount of omega-3s as walnuts and twice the fiber. 

Omega-3s are not the only omega required in the human diet, however.  Omega-6 fatty acids are also essential to obtain from food as the human body doesn’t generate this nutrient either.  But, unlike omega-3s, omega-6s are found through many dietary sources.  One of the biggest is vegetable and soybean oils, which are ingredients in many processed carbohydrates. 

Omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids both stimulate hormone production in the body, but with opposite effects.  Omega-6s increase swelling while omega-3s decreases it.  Now, this doesn’t mean omega-6s are all bad.  Humans need them for a healthy immune system and for blood clotting, however the key is to balance omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.  In the modern diet, that is very rare.

At one point in time, humans were consuming the optimal 1-to-1 ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.  Now, human consume up to 15 times more omega-6s than omega-3s.  That’s where Sacha Inchi is quite amazing.  It is one of the only foods on the planet that naturally has a 1-to-1 ratio of these essential fatty acids. 

Keep your omega fatty acids in check with Zokiva’s Sacha Inchi Powder.  Enjoy it in cereals, casseroles, soups, smoothies and many of your other favorite recipes.

Increase Breast Milk Supply with Fenugreek Seed Powder

Fenugreek is an age-old medicinal plant that is often used to increase breast milk supply.  It is native to Asia and Europe but spread rapidly due to its high content of vitamins and minerals including Vitamins A, C and a spectrum of B vitamins, along with the minerals calcium, zinc, magnesium, iron, potassium and manganese, among others.  With all of these nutrients, Fenugreek Seed Powder is a tremendous full-body health supplement.  But its ability to help boost milk supply as an all-natural galactagogue is perhaps its greatest triumph.

Scientific studies are somewhat inconclusive about Fenugreek Seed Powder for increasing breast milk supply, however experts in lactation, pediatrics and obstetrics – as well as mothers across the globe – believe it works.  Diosgenin is the compound found in Fenugreek that researchers believe stimulates breast milk production.  Diosgenin is a phytoestrogen that mimics natural estrogen in the body.  When consumed by lactating mothers, it can increase milk supply.  That’s why it is called a galactagogue.

Among the positive studies on Fenugreek Seed Powder and lactation, research shows it can increase breast milk production within 24 to 72 hours.  One study found breast milk supply elevated by 900%.  Therefore Fenugreek is the most common herb recommended to boost breast milk supply for breastfeeding mothers.  It also helps increase the volume of pumped milk.  And with all the vitamins and minerals that Fenugreek Seed Power contains, it amplifies the nutritional value of breast milk as well.

Very few side-effects are reported from Fenugreek Seed Powder on a short term or long term basis.  It is completely safe for lactating mothers to pass through their breast milk to their babies.  Some women report that their sweat and urine begins to smell like maple syrup after prolonged use of Fenugreek Seed Powder, which is a byproduct of the natural glucose found in the herb.

Fenugreek is designated GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for most people including breastfeeding moms.  However, Fenugreek Seed Powder should not be consumed by pregnant women as it can induce uterine contractions and lead to premature birth.

Beyond being a breast milk booster, Fenugreek Seed Powder contains choline that can help reduce natural signs of aging, especially mental deterioration.  Additionally, Fenugreek contains powerful polysaccharides that help expel toxins from the body, lower cholesterol within normal limits and may lower blood glucose among diabetics.  Fenugreek Seed Powder boasts a high fiber content that eases the digestive system, prevents constipation and helps fight swelling in the digestive tract that can lead to conditions such as ulcers. 

While breastfeeding, you surely want only the best and cleanest foods for you and your baby.  Zokiva’s Certified Organic Fenugreek Seed Powder is a terrific addition to a breastfeeding diet.  To increase breast milk supply, slowly build up to adding ½ to 1 teaspoons of Fenugreek Seed Powder to your favorite foods up to three times daily.  Then watch your baby thrive on your very own breast milk superfood! 

 

Do not take Fenugreek if you are pregnant.  If you are breastfeeding, consult with a doctor before use. If you are on any medications check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking any supplement.

3 Great Ways to Enjoy the Health Benefits of Graviola

When it comes to nutritional supplements, you have a lot of options.  Not only are there many superfood selections and multi-nutrient combinations, you also have your choice of format.  Everyone’s nutritional needs and preferences differ so we believe in giving you LOTS of options.  That’s why Zokiva is thrilled to offer the 100% natural nutritional supplement Graviola available in capsules, tea and powder. 

Graviola, also know as Soursop or Brazilian Paw-Paw, is a tropical superfood fruit that is typically found in South and Central America and the Caribbean.  The heart-shaped, spiky, yellowish green fruit grows on the Annonaceae tree, which yields incredible, rare health benefits.  The nutrient-rich fruit itself tastes like a mixture of strawberry and pineapple, but the edible leaves and seeds have terrific advantages too.

What’s so Amazing about Graviola?

Like many superfoods, Graviola contains a high concentration of vitamins (especially Vitamin C, Vitamin B1 and Vitamin B2) that support healthy bodies, as well as carbohydrates and a natural source of sugar.  But the most extraordinary health benefits of Graviola come from a unique set of powerful phyto-chemicals called annonaceous acetogenins, which, as you can imagine, are only produced by plants in the Annonaceae family. 

Annonaceous acetogenins found in Graviola have many uses for protecting, cleansing and healing the body.  Studies show that they support the immune system by detecting, attacking and preventing the growth of mutated cells.  This has phenomenal implications in reducing serious and life-threatening diseases.  It also helps relieve pain and disease-provoking side-effects of swelling, eases digestion, reduces muscle spasms, supports the respiratory system, clears skin conditions, and acts as a mood booster and mild sedative to calm the nervous system.

Three Ways to Take Graviola

Now you can enjoy the majestic benefits of Graviola in three ways: Capsules, Tea and Powder. 

  • Graviola Capsules:  Graviola capsules can be taken twice daily as a morning and evening nutritional boost.  With no fillers, binders or artificial ingredients, these pure ground Graviola capsules are a simple way to get a rare set of nutritional benefits. 
  • Graviola Tea:  Graviola Tea is another sweet and delicious way to sip your daily dose of Graviola.  For best results, drink two or three cups of Graviola Tea a day.  It can be served hot or cold. 
  • Graviola Powder:  Adding a few scoops of Graviola Powder may be more your speed if you tend to drink smoothies or juice, or do a lot of cooking.  Simply add a teaspoon or two of Graviola Powder to your favorite recipes to maximize your nutrient potential. 

At Zokiva, you have many options.  Try all three of our Graviola products to discover the incredible power of this phenomenal superfood.

Vitamin and Mineral Supplements: Organic Alfalfa Leaf Powder

When it comes to all-natural vitamin and mineral supplements, few are more pure and powerful than Alfalfa.  This small but mighty leafy sprout is best-known for its use in salads and sandwiches.  But now you can enjoy all the benefits of Zokiva’s all-natural Organic Alfalfa Leaf Powder without the fuss of produce shopping and sandwich prepping.

The key to unlocking the nutrient content of the Alfalfa Leaf is its deep and complex root structure.  As the roots branch out, it is able to absorb a high concentration of nutrients from the soil, more so than many other shallow-rooted herbal plant foods.  Alfalfa originated in the Middle East and translates to “father of all foods” in Arabic.  Because it was highly regarded as a healing and nutritive food, it quickly scattered throughout the world and can now be found across the globe. 

 

Vitamin-Rich Organic Alfalfa Leaf Powder

Alfalfa Leaf Powder contains many phenomenal vitamins vital to human health.  These include the entire spectrum of B-vitamins, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Vitamin K.  Each of these play an important role in sustaining the body. 

B-vitamins help us turn food into fuel, which gives us energy and keeps our bodies running optimally.  When we refer to the spectrum of B-vitamins, this is comprised of B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pyridoxine), B7 (Biotin), B9 (Folate) and B12 (Cobalamin).  It is rare for a food to have all of the B-vitamins but Alfalfa Leaf does and does it well!

Vitamins A and C are important antioxidants that help repair and protect damaged cells throughout the body and boost the immune system.  Vitamin A is great for vision, bones and teeth too.  Vitamin D is extremely crucial for bones as it helps the body metabolize calcium.  It also benefits the immune system and nervous system.  Vitamin K helps bone and tooth development as well as assists in normal blood clotting.

Mineral-Rich Organic Alfalfa Leaf Powder

Alfalfa Leaf Powder is also rich in many essential minerals including but not limited to iron, potassium, calcium, folic acid and magnesium.  Iron is the all-powerful blood booster because it oxygenates blood and helps carry nutrients and oxygen to cells throughout the body.  Iron makes bodies more efficient and gives us more energy in every department, especially the brain. 

Calcium is critical for bone and tooth development in addition to stabilizing blood pressure, regulating muscles and controlling nerve and hormone functions.  Magnesium goes hand-in-hand with calcium, helping it perform all of its duties in the body.  Folic Acid is a mineral that creates our body cells, which is one reason it is so important for pregnant women who are promoting the growth and development of babies in the womb.  Potassium is critical for cardiovascular operations including blood pressure and a steady heartbeat.  It supports the nervous system, GI tract and muscles, and also keeps electrolyte levels in check so our bodies stay hydrated.

Additional Nutrients in Organic Alfalfa Leaf Powder

Beyond vitamins and minerals, Alfalfa Leaf Powder contains a wealth of other nutrients.  It has essential amino acids that are the building blocks of protein and natural photoestrogens that help balance estrogen loss in women as they age.  Moreover, Alfalfa Leaf Powder has more chlorophyll than any other plant known to man.  Chlorophyll offers an abundance of energy, better hormonal balance, improved digestion, reduced internal swelling and body purification benefits.

Zokiva’s Organic Alfalfa Leaf Powder is a tremendous vitamin, mineral and bio-nutrient supplement for your healthy body.  Don’t miss out on these incredible benefits all in one easy-to-use powder!

Reduce your Body Burden with a Chlorella Cleanse

Modern times offer many benefits, but with them come some serious consequences, especially when it comes to our health.  Toxins reside everywhere and are impossible to avoid.  Between the air we breathe, products that absorb into our skin, UV and radiation exposure, and what we consume in our diets, toxins are prolific.  Rather than fearing the side-effects of our modern world, protect your body against their harmful damage with superfood defense.  When it comes to toxins, Chlorella Powder is one of the best superfoods to reduce your body burden and cleanse your system. 

Chlorella Powder is amazing superfood that comes from fresh water.  Although it evolved over 2 billion years ago, it was only discovered in the 19th century because it is so microscopic.  Chlorella contains the most amount of chlorophyll of any plant known to man and is also over 50% protein and contains all 18 essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein.

While there are many cleansing superfoods, Chlorella is considered one of the best because it is so tiny.  Smaller molecules like Chlorella can bond to heavy metals, pesticides, chemicals and other toxins within the bloodstream and the digestive system and help eliminate them from the body.  Spectacularly, Chlorella deftly bonds only to harmful minerals and leaves healthful minerals in tact in the body.  That’s one super smart superfood! 

Chlorella also aids digestion by creating healthy bacteria in the gut.  The digestive tract operates using hundreds of bacteria that breaks down and distribute food throughout the body.  Digestive disorders occur when bacteria are imbalanced and chemicals build up causing swelling.  Chlorella balances healthful flora and works to reduce chemicals and other toxins that land in the digestive tract.  This not only reduces risk of painful and chronic gastrointestinal problems, it also supports regular digestion and elimination of waste.

With powerful disease-fighting antioxidants and energy-boosting chlorophyll, Chlorella helps boost the immune system to reduce the toll that free radicals take on cells.  Free radicals enter the system through a variety of ways including environmental elements and the food chain.  They can cause oxidation of cells that may eventually lead to illness and disease.  Cleansing superfoods like Chlorella uplift the immune system and assist the body’s natural immune defenses in fighting off potential threats.  As cells strengthen, the body is less burdened and more capable of operating at its optimal level.  Maintaining healthy cells is one of the best routes to longevity and sustained vitality. 

Additionally, Chlorella has shown incredible health benefits to support a variety of other areas of the body.  These include: balancing pH levels; stabilizing blood sugar levels and blood pressure levels within a normal range; improving mental focus; providing increased energy; oxygenating blood; and repairing damaged tissue. 

Chlorella may be small, but it packs a mighty punch when it comes to reducing your body burden and cleansing your system.  Add Zokiva’s pure Chlorella Powder to your diet and experience the purifying results within just weeks.

What is Chlorella?

All hail Chlorella, perhaps the oldest superfood on the planet!  This blue green single-celled algae is the most potent source of chlorophyll in the world and is 60% protein, making it an excellent vegan alternative to meat and diary products.  Chlorella has a good deal of essential fatty acids and 18 amino acids, including all of the essential amino acids we cannot produce ourselves and must consume in our diet.  Plus, it has a ton of carotenes, vitamins, including A, B1, B2, B5, B6, B12, C, E and K, and minerals such as phosphorus, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium, among many other phyto-nutrients

So what do these billions-of-years old nutrients mean for our bodies?  A LOT!  Chlorella is known for its body purification and detoxification benefits stemming from chlorophyll.  Chlorophyll is responsible for much more than Chlorella’s color.  It is one of the main sources of Chlorella’s amazing immune boosting and energy sustaining properties.  Just as chlorophyll gives energy to plants, it can do the same in the human body.  This enhances the body’s immune defenses to fight off infections, scavenges free radicals that threaten our cells, squashes inflammation and eliminates a host of toxins that enter or bodies in a variety of ways.  And more energy obviously helps keep bodies in motion, allowing greater stamina and focus for physical and mental activity.

Detoxification is one of the greatest ways to prevent illness and disease, and Chlorella is one of the best supplements to cleanse the body.  Chlorella promotes good bacteria, probiotics and flora in the intestines, which aids digestion and helps eliminate toxins through normal waste channels.  Many people use Chlorella to relieve gastritis, constipation and inflammatory conditions of the stomach, such as ulcers, colitis and Crohn’s disease.  Good bacteria also combats candida and yeast and boosts the entire immune system. 

Chlorella shows incredible benefits for the cardiovascular system, circulatory system and endocrine system, which supports heart and blood health.  It’s known to reduce triglycerides and harmful LDL cholesterol that can clog arteries, while also stabilizing blood pressure levels within a normal range.  These factors help reduce the risk of heart disease and other heart-related health conditions.  Additionally, Chlorella assists with metabolic syndrome, that is, insulin resistance and blood sugar maintenance.  These both affect diabetics and increase risk of obesity.  

Zokiva’s Chlorella Powder is a bio-available superfood for sustained energy, immunity and detoxification.  Unlike other superfoods, Chlorella must be broken down before it can be consumed, making our cracked cell Chlorella Powder the best way to enjoy the benefits of this phenomenal underwater health food.
