Wholefood? Superfood? What is Quinoa?

 

What is Quinoa?

Quinoa (pronounced Keen-Wah) is a grain that is considered to be almost a complete food. Very high in protein, full of vitamins, totally gluten free, wheat free and cholesterol free. It is usually organic, easy to digest of great benefit to everyone and simply delicious.
 
Quinoa is a pure and complete 100% grain and an almost perfect food. That is why I refer to it as the Supergrain, the Supergrain of the Century as its degree of nutrition is regarded as being quite potent.
 

History

It is an ancient grain native to the Andes Mountains in South America. It has been around for over 5,000 years and is known as the ancient and staple food of the ancient civilisation of the Incas having sustained them for centuries.
 

Resurgence in Popularity

It has now been rediscovered and resurfaced to become, in my mind, the superfood of our future, and, with all the food allergies that are so prevalent in our society especially with gluten and wheat intolerances, a welcome addition to our diet.
 

Cooking With Quinoa

Quinoa comes in a variety of different grains
Quinoa has a huge range of uses and lends itself beautifully to so many dishes. When cooked it has a very delicate texture and is lovely in soups, sweets, makes wonderful salads, pasta, breads and delicious vegetarian and non vegetarian meals. A perfect food for Vegetarians and Coeliac Sufferers.

  • Fusion Stress & Anxiety

    STRESS & ANXIETY

     
    Natural, non-habit forming relief from tension, worry, mild anxiety, fatigue, poor concentration and other symptoms of stress.
     

    Features and benefits

    Beneficial during periods of intense stress such as work pressure, exam time, or quitting smoking
    Contains OciBest®, a standardised, clinically-tested extract of Holy Basil (sometimes referred to as Sacred Basil or Tulsi) that has been shown to have significant benefits in the management of stress symptoms, including fatigue, sleep disturbance and forgetfulness
    Also contains other herbs traditionally used to improve stress adaptation, energy and mental focus, and reduce symptoms of stress and worry, including mild anxiety, tension, nervousness, irritability, restlessness, fatigue, sleep disturbances, forgetfulness and poor concentration
     

    How it works

    Fusion® Stress & Anxiety contains OciBest®, a standardised extract of the Ayurvedic herb Holy Basil. In a clinical study involving people who reported feeling stressed, taking OciBest® in doses equivalent to four Stress & Anxiety tablets per day for six weeks was shown to reduce stress symptoms 1.6 times more effectively than taking a placebo supplement, and to be particularly effective for the relief of symptoms such as forgetfulness, sleeping difficulties and feeling exhausted1.
     
    The Ayurvedic herb Withania is also present in this formula, and has traditionally been used as a tonic herb (rasayana) to enhance physical and mental health, increase energy, and improve resistance to stress.
    In TCM, symptoms of stress and worry are commonly associated with disturbances in the flow of Qi (the life force that flows through the body) or Shen (the energetic force that encompasses the mind, spirit and conscious awareness, and which resides in the Heart organ-meridian system).
    In a vicious cycle, instability or agitation of the Shen can be induced by physical stress, mental pressure or intense emotions, and may also lead to the same symptoms, often manifesting as mild anxiety, nervousness, irritability or insomnia.
    The Chinese herbs in Fusion® Stress & Anxiety work together to stabilise Shen, calm the mind and spirit, regulate the Qi, and quieten the Heart organ-meridian system to reduce stress and mild anxiety, improve energy and mental function, promote restful sleep and ease nervous indigestion and other digestive difficulties associated with stress.

  • HTG Baking Powder -Gluten & Aluminium Free

    BAKING POWDER GLUTEN & ALUMINIUM FREE

     
    Did you know you can make self-raising flour from plain flour using baking powder?
     
    Due to the way the chemicals react in our baking powder (see below) it is important that once you add the liquid to it the recipes, you get it in the oven ASAP. 
     

    A bit of Baking Powder History

     
    Originally baking powder was made from baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and creme of tartar (tatric acid), like ths one is.
     
    For the chemists in the kitchen out there, the baking soda is alkaline and the creme of tartar is acidic. When the two are combined and liquid is added a chemical reaction happens, carbon dioxide is made and the product will rise (i.e. acts as a leavening agent). Quite a simple process really. However as creme of tartar is quite costly, so the food manufacturing business took it upon themselves to find cheaper, alternative acids to creme of tartar. This is when aluminium based acid products were investigated and used as alternatives or in addition to traditional baking powder. The aluminium based acids react with baking soda when heated above 50 degrees celcius, and the leavening starts to happen. 
    >You may detect a slightly metallic flavour if you use an aluminum based baking powder so why not just use the good old original one!
     

    How To Use

  • Herbs of Gold Pregnancy Plus 1-2-3

    Preconception - Pregnancy - Breastfeeding

     
    Herbs of Gold Pregnancy Plus 1-2-3 is a multi-nutritional formula with vitamins, minerals and nutrients to assist in maintaining the health of both mother and baby during preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
     
    Preconception
    Pregnancy
    Breastfeeding
     

    Directions

    Adults – Take 1 tablet twice daily, with food, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
     

    Indications

    Herbs of Gold Pregnancy Plus 1-2-3 is a multi-nutritional formula containing vitamins, minerals and nutrients to assist in maintaining the health of both mother and baby during preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
    Pregnancy Plus 1-2-3 has been formulated to be taken twice a day, to enable optimal levels of nutrients to be taken conveniently to help meet the increased nutritional demands during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
    Comes in an easy to swallow tablet with a subtle vanilla flavour and smell for those with taste and smell hypersensitivities of pregnancy.
    Folic acid, which if taken daily for one month before conception and during pregnancy, may reduce the risk of women having a child with birth defects of the brain and/or spinal cord such as the neural tube defects known as spina bifida and anencephaly.
    Iodine deficiency is re-emerging as a significant problem in Australia and New Zealand and recent research has identified Australian pregnant and breastfeeding women to be at risk of iodine deficiency. Iodine requirements are increased during pregnancy and adequate maternal iodine levels are important for healthy brain development. To meet the increased demands of pregnancy, it is recommended that iodine supplementation be taken prior to trying to conceive and throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding.
    Choline plays a key role in foetal development. Choline is required for the healthy development of the brain and nervous system during pregnancy and whilst breastfeeding. 
    Iron requirements are increased during pregnancy and iron is necessary for the formation of haemoglobin which transports oxygen in red blood cells to the tissues.
    Contains naturally sourced betacarotene which is converted to vitamin A in the body and is an alternative to vitamin A supplementation during pregnancy.
    Zinc is an essential trace element that plays an important role in growth and development. Zinc deficiency is common in pregnant and lactating women and is important for DNA replication, cell division and growth.
    Folic acid, vitamin B12 and biotin are important for DNA replication, cell division and growth.
    Vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid are necessary for oxygen transport in red blood cells so assist in maintaining normal blood.
    Folic acid and vitamin B12 are necessary for the production of red blood cells.
    Vitamin D increases the absorption of calcium and phosphorous, therefore playing a role in the development of healthy bones.
    Chromium plays a role in the maintenance of normal, healthy blood sugar levels in healthy individuals.
    Vitamins B1, B2, B5 and nicotinamide assist in energy production to help support the increased energy demands of pregnancy and lactation.
    Assists in general well-being prior to conception, during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
    Helps maintain normal and healthy infant development.
