Our bio-activated foods contain pre-digested proteins, carbohydrates, fats and are abundant in antioxidants. Pre-digestion through fermentation is an ancient process practiced by some of the longest living societies in the world. This process breaks down the foods before they are eaten to insure much quicker absorption and optimal assimilation, especially critical for people with poor digestion. Fermented foods are so bio-available they provide from two to five times the nutritional value as their non-fermented counterparts.
PERFECT DIGESTION, DETOX and IMMUNITY BLEND:
HOW DO HSO WORK?
Impervious to stomach acids and the digestive process, the microorganisms move through the stomach to the intestinal tract where they form colonies along the intestinal walls. HSO multiply in the intestines and actually compete with harmful bacteria for receptor sites, crowding out the pathogens and taking their place. Once established, the organisms quickly begin producing the proper environment to absorb nutrients and help to reestablish the proper pH.
Candida and Yeast Cleanse
-Powerful Anti-Candida Formula
The Yeast/Fungus Link
It is now believed that yeast overgrowth in the body often referred to as Candidiasis, is actually caused by a systemic fungal infection. Understanding this fungal link is the key to restoring proper system-wide balance.
What Is Candida?
Candida Albicans is a single celled fungal yeast. Among the most prolific organisms on the planet, it is impossible to keep it out of your body. In a healthy person, it does little harm because its population is kept in check by beneficial microorganisms (probiotics) which are, however, easily destroyed by antibiotics, many prescription medications, birth control pills, poor diet, and daily stress. This can then cause the Candida yeast to grow out of control, producing chemicals that are toxic to the body. Yeast overgrowth is thought to affect over 40 million Americans, both men and women, and is especially prevalent in hyperactive children and those with ADD and ADHD.
A Word On Diet
The powerful ingredients in Fungal Defense are specifically targeted to destroy yeast and other fungi and to restore a balanced, healthy internal environment. To prevent re-infection and to maintain a properly balanced system, it is critical to reduce, or in some cases, eliminate the intake of the following foods: sweets, carbohydrates (such as bread, pasta, muffins, glutenous grains, etc), alcohol, vinegar, fruits, and aged cheeses - as these foods (especially sugars and carbs) feed the yeast which thrive in sugary environments and actually cause you to crave these very foods.

FRUITS OF LIFE
Nature's Cellular Protection
Fruits of Life is a great tasting, 100%
What Is Fruits of Life?
Fruits of Life is a revolutionary whole food product designed to assist the body in attaining vibrant health and reverse the aging process at the cellular level. Fruits of Life provides over 21 certified organic nutrients and beneficial probiotics. These specially selected foods, rich in antioxidant and immune-enhancing properties, are blended in a base of alkalizing minerals from hormone-free goat's milk.
Why Do We Need Antioxidant?
Antioxidants found in our fruits and vegetables help to light and eliminate free radicals in our bodies. Free radicals are considered a major component in aging and disease progression. Research has shown that rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue, and even certain types of cancer are the direct result of free radical damage in the body. The destruction of healthy cells may be avoided by simply adding a powerful antioxidant nutrient combination, such as Fruits of Life, to your daily diet.
Why Is Alkalinity Important?
Alkalinity (or the proper pH) is important because, like body temperature, there is an optimal range in which the body prefers to create healthy reactions. Fruits of Life can help ensure that preferred pH range is maintained. The more frequently that preferred pH range is disturbed, the greater the chance of disease. According to Japanese research, the following diseases are associated with over acidity in the body: cancer, arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, gout, kidney disease, chronic fatigue, psoriasis, hives, eczema, osteoporosis, constipation, heartburn, asthma, hay fever, allergies, headaches, neuralgia, indigestion, nausea, obesity, tooth and gum diseases, and leg cramps.
What Is in Fruits of Life?
Fruits of Life contains certified organic fruit extracts with high scores in the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absortance Capability)
analysis performed at Tufts University in Boston. Foods that score high on this extensive test have been shown to significantly
protect cells and their components from oxidative damage and may even slow the processes associated with aging in both body
and brain function.
Antioxidant Fruit Blend
BLUEBERRY: Recent studies have shown that blueberries contain powerful antioxidants which may retard the effects of aging and play a significant role in preventing cancer. James Joseph, PhD., further states, "The blueberry has emerged as a very powerful food in the aging battle. Given the possibility that blueberries may reverse short-term memory loss and forestall other affects of aging, their potential may be very great."
Garden of Life has created this unique blend of alkalizing minerals, enzymes, and probiotics from goat's milk. Mineral Matrix feeds the beneficial flora in the gastrointestinal tract, aiding in proper digestion and elimination. It contains a high concentration of organic sodium and potassium, which produce alkaline reactions at the cellular level and aid in the reduction of acid.
The Poten-Zyme Process
The nutrient dense foods and Mineral Matrix blend in Fruits of Life are pre-digested using the proprietary Poten-Zyme process (Poten-tiation by Enzym-atic activation). This proprietary process is an exclusive natural process of lacto-fermentation and enzymatic predigestion, carefully blended into selected whole foods. The bioavailability and absorption of nutrients using this unique process is increased from 2-5 times. People with sensitive digestive systems can benefit tremendously from the increased nutrient values the Poten~Zyme process yields. The Poten-Zyme process creates and liberates valuable compounds within the foods including: enzymes, antioxidants, beta glucans, phytosterols, and many others.

QUESTIONS FREQUENTLY ASKED ABOUT LIVING VITAMIN C
How does vitamin C benefit my health?
Years of scientific research prove that vitamin C influences almost every body function. For example, our formula:
Why do I need to take a vitamin C supplement?
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient not manufactured in the body, so it must be obtained through diet or supplements. Our hectic lifestyles can make eating healthy amounts of vitamin C-rich foods like fresh fruits and vegetables a challenge. But with a whole food supplement like Living Vitamin C, you're sure to get the level of vitamin C you need.
How do the support nutrients in your Living Vitamin C
LIVING CALCIUM: HOMEOSTATIC CALCIUM
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT LIVING CALCIUM
What does calcium do and why do I need it for good health?
You probably already know calcium helps maintain strong bones and teeth, but you may not be aware of its many other heath benefits. Calcium: Alkalinizes the body to ensure a healthy pH range. Maintains the integrity of skin and tissues. Helps the body maintain normal blood pressure. Helps support healthy cholesterol and triglycerides. Regulates the entry of nutrients into the body's cells.
Why should I take a calcium supplement?
Calcium is an "essential" nutrient, which means it is not produced by the body and must be acquired through diet or supplements. If you don't get enough calcium, your body will drain it from your bones, which can make them weak and prone to osteoporosis.
What are Homeostatic Nutrient complexes?
Homeostatic Nutrient complexes are vitamins and minerals that have been liberated and made more potent with probiotic microorganisms and their by-products. The process of turning ordinary vitamins and minerals into living "whole food" structures enables them to be more efficiently utilized by our bodies.
What makes Living Calcium better than other calcium supplements?
In contrast to single nutrient calcium supplements, Living Calcium contains all the co-factors necessary for proper assimilation: vitamin C, vitamin D, iodine, zinc, magnesium, boron, copper and manganese. The magnesium and other minerals in Living Calcium are not isolated, but are part of a blend of 70 beneficial ionic ocean and fulvic acid-based minerals.
The Final Word in Enzyme Supplementation
Contains over 20 different digestive enzymes
The State of our Digestion
According to the Surgeon General's report on nutrition and health, 8 out ot 10 leading causes of death in the United States are diet related. Digestive problems comprise the number one health problem in North America. Digestive complaints including everything from hemorrhoids to colon cancer, result in more time lost at work, school, and play than any other health related problem. Many of these digestive problems were rare or non-existent less than a century ago. How can we get back to the health of our ancestors? Consume enzyme rich foods and "live" enzyme supplements.
What Are Enzymes?
Enzymes are catalysts in the body, protein-like substances which help maintain the tissues, orchestrate the many functions of the body, and digestfood. Enzymes can be broken down into three categories: metabolic enzymes, digestive enzymes and food enzymes. Metabolic enzymes spark many of the reactions inside the cells of our body. Our organs, tissues and cells would not work without the help and direction of metabolic enzymes. Digestive enzymes secreted by our own pancreas break down the nutrients contained in the foods we eat. Food enzymes are supplied to us through the foods we eat. Food enzymes help to break down the foods before our digestive enzymes are called upon. Food enzymes are destroyed at temperatures above 118 degrees. All cooked and processed foods are devoid of food enzymes.
Why Do We Need Enzymes?
Enzymes are perhaps our most important nutrients. Enzymes are responsible for nearly every facet of life and health. When we eat raw foods, we consume the enzymes in the foods. The foods are then digested easily by the body. When we eat cooked or processed foods, the body must create the enzymes necessary to digest the cooked foods. This constant need for enzymes depletes our store of enzymes, strains the body and causes the pancreas to enlarge. Without enzymes, we're dead. In fact, Dr. Edward Howell, the groundbreaking physician who devoted his life to the study of enzymes, has stated in his classic work, Food Enzymes for Health and Longevity, "After we have attained full mature growth, there is a slow and gradual decrease in the enzyme content of our bodies. When the enzyme content becomes so low that metabolism can't proceed at a proper level, death overtakes us." If one does not consume proper levels of enzymes from foods or supplements the following symptoms may occur: excessive gas and bloating (particularly after meals), diarrhea and/or constipation, heartburn, low energy, acne, arthritis, allergies, insomnia, high cholesterol and many more. Once enzymes have completed their appointed task they are destroyed. For life to continue you must have a constant enzyme supply which requires continual replacement of enzymes. The best way to assure your body gets the adequate amount of enzymes every day is to consume a diet high in "live," raw and fermented foods and to consume a high potency, broad spectrum digestive enzyme supplement such as OmegaZyme.
OmegaZyme contains the following ingredients:
Protease Blend- 65,000 HUT Blend of 5 proteolytic enzymes including peptidase which aid in the digestion and utilization of dietary proteins. Helps deliver the specific nutrients necessary for muscle and tissue repair, as well as for vibrant immune system function.
OmegaZyme delivery Systems
OmegaZyme comes in two convenient delivery systems, UltraZorbe caplets and powder. UltraZorbe caplets are specially designed to preserve the "live" enzymes and probiotics contained in OmegaZyme and to deliver them in the most effective time frame possible. UltraZorbe caplets are produced without the use of heat. OmegaZyme comes with a convenient scoop and can be mixed in any room temperature liquid or sprinkled directly onto room temperature or cold food.
Take 1-4 caplets or scoops of OmegaZyme1~with meals and snacks. The quantity of enzymes used should reflect the amount of cooked or processed food consumed. OmegaZyme1~ may be taken on an empty stomach to aid the body's detoxification process. If you're at all skeptical about the effectiveness of these digestive enzymes, we challenge you to take 2-4 caplets or scoops of OmegaZyme~ with each meal for about 3-5 days; then, stop taking them altogether for 1-2 days. You'll immediately notice the contrast as your body goes back to what you will now realize was your earlier sub-par state of poor digestion and low energy.

COD LIVER OIL
100% NATURAL GOAT'S MILK PROTEIN
Goat's milk is the most widely consumed milk in the world.
WHY DO WE NEED PROTEIN?
Proteins are the building blocks of human life, essential for normal growth. Protein is 90 percent of the dry weight of blood, 80 percent of muscles, and 70 percent of the skin. Proteins provide the building blocks for connective tissue and are the primary constituents of enzymes, hormones and antibodies. They encompass many important chemicals including immunoglobulins and enzymes. In short, protein is the basic stuff of muscles, skin, bones, hair, heart, teeth, blood, brains, skin and the zillion biochemical activities going on in our bodies every minute. When we fail to consume adequate amounts of protein, the blood and tissues can become either too acidic or too alkaline. Lack of dietary protein can retard growth in children, and in adults can be a contributing factor in chronic fatigue, depression, slow wound healing, and decreased resistance to infection.
ANIMAL PROTEIN vs. VEGETABLE PROTEIN.
Animal protein is the only source of complete protein available. Animal sources of protein such as Goatein have many advantages over vegetarian sources such as soy because vegetarian sources are typically low in one or more of the essential amino acids even when overall protein content is high. There is now some controversy regarding the safety of soy. Soy protein is thought by some researchers to be high in mineral-blocking phytates and thyroid-depressing phytoestrogens. Potent enzyme inhibitors in soy may even depress growth.
WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT GOATEIN?
GOATElN IS PURE. Goatein is the highest quality protein powder available. It is produced from goat's milk that contains no antibiotics or female growth hormones. Most commercially available dairy protein powders are produced from animals given antibiotics and/or BrST that can provide the user with unacceptable amounts of female hormones. Many vegetable protein powders are made from non-organic or GMO sources and may contain chemical residues.
GOATEIN GOAT'S MILK PROTEIN IS ABSORBED MORE EASILY.
The smaller molecules of goat's milk are closer in size and composition to human milk, making it easier to digest. Goat's milk protein is also substantially less allergenic than cow's milk protein in susceptible individuals. AddItionally, Goatein is partially pre-digested through a lactic acid fermentation process to make it even more bio-available while virtually eliminating it's lactose content. Research has shown that proteins from milk that have been pre-digested by lacto-fermentation are absorbed more efficienty as those of non-fermented milk. During the fermentation process, many digestive enzymes are created that aid in the assimilation of food nutrients. In THE MILK BOOK, William Campbell Douglass, M.D. states that the protein contained in cultured (lacto fermented) dairy products is the very highest quality available for human consumption.
GOATEIN is MINIMALLY PROCESSED.
Most other milk protein powders are made from cow's milk and, even though they claim to be minimally processed, may use several invasive processing steps, including heating at high temperatures. These methods denature many important amino acids and DESTROY enzymes and beneficial bacteria. Research suggests that processing whey with heat and acid (i.e. ion-exchange) results in the loss of several key amino adds including Cysteine 73-77%, Threonine 35-45%, Serine 18-30%, and Lysine 19-20%. Because Goatein is processed without the use of acid or excessive heat, the amino acids, enzymes and beneficial bacteria remain in their natural form.
GOATEIN IS HIGH IN AMINO ACIDS.
These building blocks of proteins are crucial for proper immune system function. Because Goatein~ is processed without excessive heat or acids, it contains biologically active Cystine, Glycine, and Glutamic Acid in tripeptide form. The combination of these three amino acids forms Glutathione. Glutathione functions as a principal antioxidant, scavenging free radicals and environmental toxins such as lipid peroxides that can damage and destroy healthy cells. When the body suffers from oxidative stress, supplies of Glutathione diminish. Oxidative stress affects the nervous, immune and endocrine systems and may be an underlying cause of fatigue. Glutathione is extremely important for the proper functioning of the immune system through its critical role in the growth and replication of lymphocytes, the cells that mediate specific immunity. Goatein!m also provides immunoproteins such as albumin, lactalbumin, and lactoferin that have been shown to stimulate immune response.
GOATEIN IS A BALANCED COMBINATION OF WHEY

What is an Adaptogen?
For thousands of years, people all around the world have been using adaptogens to help their bodies deal with the effects of stress. The Chinese described adaptogens as "superior" plants completely harmless to the body while exerting profound supportive effects. Adaptogens work by activating the basic and vital functions of the body to help it remain healthy under unfavorable conditions, making the body able to "adapt". Ancient cultures revered adaptogenic herbs for their balancing properties, but the need for such plants has never been so great as today. Adaptogens have been scientifically proven through clinical and laboratory studies for more than 40 years, with their actions well documented, and their safety confirmed. To be considered a true adaptogen, a plant must conform to the following criteria:

The 100-Day Cultivation Period
When you embark on an adaptogen program, it is traditionally believed that the initial stage of cultivation takes approximately 100 days. This "setup program" will accomplish all kinds of major tasks, including detoxification, purification of body tissues, balancing the major functions, establishing a fundamental level of protection and stabilizing the nervous system. It is important to maintain consistency for the full 100 days. However, you are likely to notice many positive changes in how you feel and look long before the first hundred day period has run its course.
SUPER SEED ®
Nature's Whole Food Fiber Source
Provides a Balanced Source of Soluble and Insoluble Fiber
The Critical Role of Dietary Fiber
The role of dietary fiber has increasingly grown in prominence since as early as 1860 with the advent of the technology for refining sugar, followed soon thereafter by improved milling methods that began removing the fiber from flour. Improvements in rail and sea transport along with refrigeration, enabled the distribution of these foods to a worldwide marketplace. Prosperous, more industrialized countries were predominantly the beneficiaries of these new wonder foods. Simultaneously, the populations of these countries began suffering en masse with digestive and bowel disorders. In the recent 50 years as three generations have come to pass, the prevalence of these and multiple related disorders have reached a critical peak. Foodstuffs have become so de-natured that they are almost unrecognizable from their whole, original state. Current statistics are undeniably revealing:
What is Super Seed ?
Super Seed is an extraordinary whole food formula that supplies your body with a highly usable, nutrient dense, vegetarian source of dietary fiber. Super Seed is a whole food blend of certified organic and chemical free seeds, sprouted grains and legumes, abundant in mucilaginous soluble fiber, and rich in essential fatty acids and lignans.
Why is Fiber Important?
Death begins in the colon, and so too does vibrant health. Choosing to supply your body with adequate dietary fiber on a daily basis is an important co-factor in bowel and colon super health. The following are some of the many essential functions that dietary fiber performs in the body:
What's in Super Seed ?
FLAX SEED: Nature's most abundant vegetarian source of Omega 3 fatty acids, vitally important for streng1 the heart and arterial walls, lowering cholesterol, reducing high blood pressure, diminishing insulin requirement acuity, brain development, adrenal function and sperm formulation. Flax Seed is the richest known source of "lignans", a constituent of fiber that promotes anti-tumoral, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and antioxidant effects in the body.
The Poten-Zyme Process
Each of the nutrient dense ingredients in Super Seedm utilizes a natural proprietary process of lacto-fermentation and enzymatic pre-digestion called "Poten-Zyme " (Poten-tiation by Enzym-atic activation). This exclusive delivery system employs 14 strains of beneficial probiotic micro-organisms within a whole food matrix, thereby liberating valuable medicinal compounds, and enhancing bio-availability and absorption of healing properties as much as 2-5 times. Note: The Poten-Zymem process makes the seeds and legumes used in Super Seed significantly easier to digest; by neutralizing phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors, and breaking down difficult to digest complex sugars, thus reducing the flatulence usually associated with beans and seeds.
A Weight Management Solution and More
Excessive weight and obesity lead to some 280,000 preventable deaths in the United States each year. Type II Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease and High Blood Pressure are only a few of the serious complications resulting from being overweight. Obesity related disability accounts for approximately 7 percent of health care costs. I would add that these are older figures and the problem seems to be growing world-wide.
This summary will outline the most important of these more obscure, but no less important, beneficial health effects.
FucoThin contains two (2) main ingredients that work synergistically to improve human health.
FucoThin has antioxidant/anti-aging properties.
It has a high ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity ) value, a measure of anti-oxidant strength, which supports normal cellular aging and contributes to the antioxidant pool in the body along with the many other anti-aging compounds in the body.
FucoThin helps maintain normal blood pressure.
FucoThin has been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure from the placebo group to the study group. In this study systolic pressure dropped 12.5% and diastolic pressure dropped 10.2%
FucoThin supports normal Inflammation and C-reactive protein (CRP)
CRP is one of the body's non-specific markers for how much inflammation is present. Inflammation is a component of many unhealthy conditions and FucoThin has been shown to lower CRP levels.
FucoThin helps support normal liver function.
The liver is the body's major cellular cleansing organ. If the liver is damaged then certain chemical markers rise in the blood to abnormal levels. These markers include compounds named GGT, AST and ALT
FucoThin helps to establish healthier blood lipids and liver fat.
High fat levels in the liver and blood equate to reduced health of the body overall. FucoThin has been shown in clinical studies to reduce the percentage of liver fat by 37% (15.1 % to 9.4%).
Acid/Alkaline and Your Body's pH
When your body becomes too acidic, it will attempt to compensate by retaining alkaline salts in the bloodstream to offset the increase of tissue acidity. Since your body can only tolerate a small imbalance in blood pH, it will rob alkaline components from other places including your body's precious alkaline reserves in an effort to restore a proper pH balance. This can result in heartburn, digestive distress, stomach upset, fatigue, and a multitude of varying symptoms.
The Important Role of Sodium & Potassium
If it were not for the presence of sodium making the tissue in the stomach highly alkaline, the lining would be destroyed by the hydrochloric acid normally produced in the stomach. The stomach, intestines, joints, and ligaments are in constant need of natural food-source sodium such as that present in the goat mineral matrix in Acid Defense. Naturally occurring sodium is not to be confused with the sodium from common table salt which is processed with extreme heat using many chemical and bleaching agents.
A Necessary and Beneficial Combination:
Potassium neutralizes acid wastes, and in combination with sodium, maintains a healthy acid/alkaline balance. Potassium and sodium are nearly always found together in the body and perform many of the same functions. Second only to breathing and maintaining a heartbeat the most important metabolic function our body performs is to maintain a balanced pH.
The Foundation of Health
We believe that the very foundation of health begins with the proliferation of beneficial flora in the gut. The probiotics, live enzymes, and alkalinizing minerals naturally occurring in goat's milk whey, along with organic vegetable juice concentrates and our powerful Stomach Soothe N-imes Blend - together produce a soothing effect, maintain a balanced pH, and promote the growth of healthy flora throughout the intestines.
Ancient Wisdom - Fermentation
The whole food ingredients in Acid Defense, are lacto-fermented and enzymatically pre-digested, utilizing a proprietary natural process called Poten-Zyme (Potentiation by Enzymatic activation). This ancient method of bio-fermentation incorporates 14 strains of beneficial micro-organisms and their enzymes into the foods, gently breaking them down into their most basic elements.
One Serving (12 grams) Supplies:
Take 1 heaping tablespoon mixed with 8oz of water or juice before bed or when symptoms occur.
