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.

In Rena Patten's Cooking with Quinoa - The Supergrain you will find 90 recipes all using quinoa in grain, flake or flour form. There are 8 chapters covering soups, Breads and Pasta, Salads, Vegetarian, Meat, Poultry, Seafood and Sweets. Recipes are easy to prepare and use fresh ingredients that are readily available.
 
There is something for everyone in this book regardless of whether one is wheat or gluten intolerant, has other food allergies or no food problems at all. It is a must in every kitchen.

    Digestive support
     
     

    Indications

    Digest-Zymes contains microbial and plant derived enzymes to support healthy digestive function, and aid in the digestion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, including fibre and lactose.
     
    Microbial derived enzymes, including amylase, protease, tilactase (lactase) and cellulase, are highly stable and active throughout a wide pH range, making them more active and functional for a longer distance through the digestive tract, when compared to pancreatic enzymes.
     
    Digest-Zymes provides Bromelains, which are a family of proteolytic enzymes derived from pineapple and protease, both of which assist in the digestion of proteins.
     
    Bromelain, combined with digestive enzymes, helps relieve digestive symptoms such as indigestion, flatulence, bloating and the feeling of fullness. 
     
    Digest-Zymes contains protease which assists in the digestion of proteins.
     
    Digest-Zymes contains lipase, which assists in the digestion of fats.
     
    Digest-Zymes provides tilactase (Lactase) which assists in the digestion of lactose, the primary sugar found in dairy products.
     
    Digest-Zymes contains amylase which assists digestion of carbohydrates and cellulase that breaks down the plant fibre cellulose.
     
    Digest-Zymes also contains Gentian, a bitter herb which has been traditionally used as a digestive tonic to aid digestion. Gentian has also been used traditionally for the relief of digestive disorders including flatulence, indigestion, bloating and the feeling of fullness.

    How does Green TeaX50 work?

    Green Tea X50 contains over 600mg of the exclusive to green tea fat burning Polyphenols and Catechins per serve, more than any other product. The secret of green tea lies in the fact it is rich in these polyphenols & catechins, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which is a mega-powerful anti-oxidant. And GreenTeaX50 is loaded with them.
     
    Research shows that drinking a high consumption green tea diet may assist in stimulating metabolic function and increased burning of body fat through Thermogenesis. The antioxidant compounds naturally occurring and present in high amounts of green tea polyphenols may stimulate your metabolism through increased energy expenditure to help you burn up more energy, which in turn helps burn fat and inhibit the uptake of glucose in the intestines, resulting in weight loss.
     
    Green Tea X50 also features resveratrol, a super powerful antioxidant usually found in berries, the skin of purple and red grapes, red wine and peanuts.  This antioxidant further helps fight the damaging effects of harmful free radicals and improves insulin resistance, making it useful for regulating blood sugar levels as well as assisting with weight loss and detox.  There is much research that suggests that resveratrol may also help protect blood cells against oxidative damage which is thought to contribute to the ageing process, help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and support a healthy cardiovascular system.
     

    WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?

    Just add a sachet of one of our great tasting GreenTeaX50 flavours (original, raspberry, tropical or chocolate-add to milk) to 600ml-1 litre of water, shake and enjoy! 1 sachet a day will help improve your overall health, 2 sachets a day will help stimulate your metabolism.

    Today, about 25% of people suffer from joint problems. This number is increasing constantly. The leading reason is wear and tear of the joint cartilage due to mechanical stress and age.

It is possible to alleviate the pain from the wear and tear effects brought about by the activities of life, sport, work and the natural aging process by taking as little as 5 grams per day. Joint Care helps people with joint problems to regain mobility and provide an enhanced quality of life.

  • Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Liver & Organ Defender

This product supports the major organs that bodybuilders are most concerned about; liver, heart, kidneys, prostate, and your skin. Liver and Organ Defender is truly an elite level on-cycle, post cycle, and everyday support supplement.
     
     
     
     

    Key Features BREAKDOWN:

     

    Liver Support

     
    Milk Thistle: This is probably the most well known and most widely relied on ingredient among bodybuilders and those seeking liver support. For over 2,000 years, Milk Thistle as been used as a natural treatment for liver disorders and vital liver function protection. 
     
     
    N-Acetyl Cysteine: NAC is one of the most powerful liver support ingredients available on the market. Bodybuilders take a lot stress against their liver; more than the average person. Think of all the protein they eat, all the supplements they take - all being strained and filtered by the liver. 
     
    Alcohol and other external contaminants are very hard on the liver. N-Acetyl Cysteine is used to quickly restore protective levels of glutathione levels, one of the body’s most powerful antioxidant defenses. NAC makes liver cells more able to protect themselves from ongoing damage. A healthy liver is critical for the longevity of your bodybuilding lifestyle.
     
    L-Glutathione: This is a very sought after powerful ingredient for those with Hepatitis, a viral infection of the liver. L-Glutathione is the body’s major antioxidant that protects cells, tissue, and organs from free radicals and diseases. It is a strong immune system strengthener than helps detoxify and protect the liver.
     
     

    Heart Support

     
    Hawthorne Berry Powder: This plant is used to relax and widen blood vessels in the body, which in turn can lower blood pressure. Hawthorne Berry has been used to treat heart disease as far back as the early 1800s.
    High blood pressure can be triggered by several factors including rapid weight gain from certain supplements. 
     
     
    Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA): This vitamin-like compound is widely used for reduction of blood pressure and insulin resistance. It is a very popular supplement among bodybuilders for a vast array of benefits specifically for fitness enthusiasts. 
     
     
    Garlic Extract: Garlic has been associated with lowering blood pressure in patients with untreated hypertension, and in some reports the anti-hypertensive effect of garlic was similar to the same effect of anti-hypertensive drugs. Garlic has been shown to lower blood pressure, increase blood flow, and lower LDL cholesterol.
     
     
    Di-Magnesium Malate: Hypertension and high blood pressure can be major risk factors for heart disease and stroke. Studies show that magnesium supplementation lowers both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Magnesium is also associated with lowering the risk of diabetes.
     
     
    Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance that’s found naturally in the body that helps to convert food into energy. CoQ10 is found in almost every cell in the body, and it is a powerful antioxidant that has been demonstrated to lower blood pressure. Research has found that CoQ10 has the potential to lower systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure without significant side effects.
     
     

    Prostate

     
    Saw Palmetto Powder: The number one ingredient among bodybuilders for prostate health is definitely Saw Palmetto. External sources can sometimes cause the possibility of an enlarged prostate. A large analysis of multiple studies showed that Saw Palmetto produced positive benefits similar to Finasteride, a drug used to alleviate enlarged prostate. Other studies have shown that it can also be used for baldness, and urinary problems.
     
     

    Kidney Support

     
    Cordyceps Sinensis :Natural cordyceps helps promote protein synthesis and ease symptoms of kidney failure. It can also be used to improve blood flow to the kidneys and improve overall renal (kidney) function. Patients on dialysis take Cordyceps to relieve the side effects of dialysis.
     
     

    Skin Support

     
    Zinc Chelate: DHT is one of the androgens that can contribute to the hormonal cause of acne. Bodybuilders typically try to avoid DHT in general for a number of reasons. The effects of DHT on skin lead to whiteheads and blackheads, and inflammation which can lead to pimples and cysts. Zinc reduces the amount of DHT your body produces and prevents a major cause of breakouts on your skin.
     
     
    Selenium: This rare, but essential mineral has so many health benefits, but the most important benefit of selenium are its acne treatment benefits. Selenium can improve the elasticity of skin, reduce acne scars, and prevents the development of inflammatory acnes lesions (pimples) from toxins.
