Certified Organic Raw Bio-Fermented Brown Rice Protein Powder
Supports: The Immune, Skeletal, Digestive, Nervous and Intestinal Body Systems.
Sprouted grains are some of the most vitamin and mineral-dense foods on the planet. When the grains are germinated ,through their initial contact with water in the sprouting process, their nutritional content changes dramatically. They become higher in protein, lower in carbohydrates, and develop a host of live vital enzymes!
During the first few days of sprouting, a newly developing sprout is loaded with energy -- the life source necessary for the grain to grow. As the sprout grows and matures into a plant, this concentrated energy is diluted. The sprouts used for our Certified Bio Fermented Organic Brown Rice Protein Powder are sprouted only for a short period of time, and are harvested before they change from a sprouted seed to a young plant, at the exact time when they are at their maximum level of nutritional and enzymatic value.
After the young sprouts have reached this optimum level of development, they are harvested, and the protein is separated out and slow-dried at low temperatures. Drying at low temperatures is extremely important so that the live enzymes in the sprouts remain alive. After the drying process, the sprouts are then gently ground into a fine powder.
Possible health benefits of Certified Organic Bio Fermented Sprouted Brown Rice Protein Powder may include:
Organic Goji Berry: Supports and balances: The Immune, Urinary, Skeletal and Structural Body Systems.
Organic Goji Berry has been called the world’s most powerful anti-aging food. It is one of the highest rated foods on the ORAC scale (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) only rivaled by cloves, cinnamon, cacao and the acai berry.

Certified Organic Raw Red Maca Root Powder
What is Certified Organic Red Maca Root Powder?
Maca has traditionally been a staple superfood-food-herb in the harsh cold climates of the high Andes in Peru for thousands of years. Maca grows at an elevation of 11,000-14,000 feet making it likely the highest altitude food-herb crop in the world. The character and properties of Maca have been developed by the extreme conditions under which it grows. This makes Maca an excellent food-herb choice for individuals living in cold climates and/or at high altitudes and/or with extreme lifestyles. Maca is a member of the cruciferous family of plants. It is a distant relative of the common radish. The Maca plant produces leaves that grow close to the ground and the plant produces a small, off-white flower typical to the cruciferous family. The main part of interest for this plant, however, is the radish-like tuberous root.
Why RED Maca?
Red Maca has the same nutritional profile and all of the same beneficial properties as regular (white, yellow or black) Maca, but it appears that phytochemical analyses showed to have greater amounts of the compounds responsible for antioxidant and anti tumor activity than other types of Maca.
* This has implications for men and women of any age who are looking to maintain their vitality and energy. *Ref: Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology 2005; 3:5. Red maca (Lepidium meyenii) reduced prostate size... Gustavo F Gonzales(1,4), Sara Miranda(1), Jessica Nieto(1), Gilma Ferndez(2), Sandra Yucra(1), Julio Rubio(1,4), Pedro Yi(3,4), and Manuel Gasco(1,4).
Historical and Traditional Use of Red Maca:
Archeological evidence has been found, that Maca was domesticated over 2,000 years ago by the predecessors of the Incan people. Even today, for many indigenous inhabitants of the Andes, Maca is still one of the most vital and valuable of all commodities. The Red Maca Root has been used over the ages for its nutritional and herbal qualities. Once harvested, The Red Maca Root was traditionally dried, then powdered. Once powdered it was either eaten or put into sacs and traded for other commodities. Often times cacao nibs and beans (raw chocolate) would come up the Andes from the jungle and in exchange Maca would go down from the Andes into the jungle. These two foods (maca and cacao) have a unique affinity and history which is evident when one tries eating them together. Both Cacao and Maca were used as money by ancient indigenous peoples.
Maca's Remarkable Reputation:
Maca's reputation as a powerful strength and stamina enhancer as well as libido-enhancing food-herb stretches back into prehistory. Maca, like goji berries and ginseng, is a powerful adaptogen, which means it has the ability to balance and stabilize the body's systems (cardiovascular system, nervous system, musculature, lymphatic system, etc.). As an adaptogen, Maca can provide more energy if it is needed, but if it is not, it will not over stimulate. Adaptogens also boost immunity and increase the body's overall vitality by 10-15% according to most studies. Rather than addressing a specific symptom, adaptogens are used to improve the overall adaptability of the whole body to diverse and challenging situations and stress.
During the height of the Incan Empire, legend has it that Incan warriors would consume Maca before entering into battle. This would make them fiercely strong. But after conquering a city the Incan soldiers were prohibited from using Maca, to protect the women from excessive sexual impulses.
Organic Ashwagandha Root Powder: Supports and balances: The Immune and Emotional/Mental Body Systems.
Organic Ashwagandha Root Powder supports the emotional/mental and the immune body systems, and may show remarkable promise for increasing brain function. It has been used in India for people with mental deficits in geriatric patients, including amnesia. Researchers have found that it can increase acetylcholine receptor activity. Increased acetylcholine receptor capacity might partly explain the cognition-enhancing and memory improving effects of extracts from Ashwagandha observed in animals and humans. Further studies indicate that Organic Ashwagandha stimulates the growth of axons and dendrites. According to scientists, it most likely affects multiple body systems to promote emotional well-being, mental sharpness and physical endurance. Pharmacological studies indicate the mechanism of action is Withaferin-A, a primary Withanolide in it which stimulates neurotransmitter pathways in the brain. This effect enhances memory and other cognitive processes. Scientists have yet to pinpoint the specific functions supporting immune system response and other regulatory body systems, though it is believed that all the active glycowithanolides that derive from the plant work together to alleviate anxiety and panic, mild mood swings, lack of mental clarity/focus and mental/physical fatigue.
Benefits of Organic Ashwagandha Root Powder may include:
Certified Organic Raw Cacao Nibs:
What are the benefits of RAW Certified Organic Cacao Bean Nibs?
Certified Organic Raw Cacao Nibs 'the food of the gods' have been used for centuries to boost energy and enhance mood. With over 300 identifiable chemical compounds, cacao remains one of the most complex and pleasurable foods on the planet. In its raw form, cacao contains anandamide (a euphoric substance), arginine (a natural aphrodisiac), and tryptophan (a natural anti-depressant). By raising the neurotransmitters in our brain, cacao promotes an overall feeling of well being. In essence, raw chocolate makes you happy!
What's the Difference between Cacao and Cocoa? The official name of the chocolate tree is Theobroma Cacao. Some experts believe that over time the word "cacao" became Anglicized, and most likely through common error people started calling it "cocoa". Now, with the rebirth of old-style, artisanal chocolate there is a movement to reclaim the beans rightful name: cacao (pronounced Ka-Kow). Today, the two words are often used inter-changeably. Our Cacao Beans are cultivated using only the best in sustainable organic farming practices on small, family owned farms as opposed to large hybrid cacao farms. It is our goal to provide Cacao nibs which are superior in flavor, aroma and health benefits. Our organic cacao nibs are guaranteed to be free of heavy metals, chemicals, herbicides and pesticides and are never machine processed, heated or roasted. No sugar, dairy or anything else; just 100% heirloom organic cacao.

Raw Organic Cacao nibs are high in the mineral magnesium, essential for helping the heart to pump blood efficiently, building strong bones and maintaining proper blood pressure. Cacao nibs also contain one of the highest levels of antioxidants on the planet, exceeding that of red wine, green tea and many other exotic fruits and vegetables. Recent scientific studies have shown that cacao boosts blood flow to the heart, brain and other organs and while having protective effects and supporting a healthy heart. It has also been shown to be helpful in lowering blood glucose levels. Research from Germany also suggests that the flavanols in cacao may help maintain youthful, beautiful skin. Plus cacao is a good source of sulfur which promotes healthy skin, nails and hair. Cacao and dark chocolate has been shown to have excellent antioxidant levels exceeding red wine, green tea, and other exotic fruits and vegetables. ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) values of dark chocolate (13,120 per 100 grams) exceed those of prunes (5,700), blueberries (2,400), strawberries (1,540) and spinach (1,260). But adding milk to chocolate does not help, in fact, it seems to block the activity of the phytochemicals responsible for the powerful antioxidant capacity of cacao.

Organic Wheat Grass: Supports and balances: The Digestive, Intestinal, Glandular and the Immune Body Systems
Organic Wheatgrass Powder is an easy way to enjoy all the wonderful benefits of this incredible green food. It is a powerful detoxifier of the liver, blood, and gastrointestinal tract while chemically neutralizing toxins. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can help protect the body from free radicals and carcinogens. It also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood and increasing red blood-cell count. It may also aid in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body. Recent studies suggest that wheatgrass has a powerful ability to help fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs and it should not be confused with Wheatgrass Juice Powder. Organic Wheatgrass Powder is made by drying the whole grass leaf and then milling it into a fine powder. Wheatgrass Juice Powder is made by first juicing the Wheatgrass and removing all of the cellulose so a pure juice concentrate is left. Then the juice is dried into a powder. Wheatgrass is rich in protein and includes all 8 of the essential amino acids, as well as 13 of the remaining 16 non essential amino acids.

Organic Black Chia Seeds: Supports and balances;
The Circulatory, Digestive, Intestinal, and the Immune Body Systems
Organic Black Chia Seeds are an edible seed that come from the desert plant Salvia Hispanica, a member of the mint family that grows abundantly in southern Mexico. Known as the running food, its use as a high energy endurance food has been recorded as far back as the ancient Aztecs. Black chia seeds are extremely high in Omega 3 fatty acids and are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and soluble fiber. One ounce of Black Chia Seeds provides 11 grams of fiber. This amount also includes calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, manganese, copper, niacin, zinc and the proper ratio of Omega 3 fatty acids. They are a rich source of antioxidants containing chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, myricetin, quercetin and kaempferol flavonols.
These compounds are both primary and synergistic antioxidants that contribute to the strong antioxidant activity of Black Chia Seeds. Studies show that eating them may slow down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrate calories into simple sugars. This leads scientists to believe that they may have great benefits for diabetics.
In a preliminary study from the University of Toronto (2006), researchers gave 21 diabetics either a supplement made from Black Chia Seeds, or grains with similar fiber content. The results were interesting. Researchers believe this same gel-forming phenomenon takes place in the stomach when food containing these gummy fibers, known as mucilages, are eaten. The gel that is formed in the stomach creates a physical barrier between carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down, thus slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar. This blockage of calorie absorption makes them a great diet helper prolonging their conversion into sugar stabilizing metabolic changes, diminishing the surges of highs and lows creating a longer duration in their fueling effects. One of the exceptional qualities of the seeds is their hydrophilic properties, having the ability to absorb more than 12 times their weight in water. Their ability to hold on to water supports the body in prolonging hydration. Fluids and electrolytes provide the environment that supports the life of all the body’s cells. With Organic Black Chia Seeds, you retain moisture; regulate, more efficiently, this helps with absorption of nutrients and body fluids. Because there is a greater efficiency in the utilization of body fluids, the electrolyte balance is maintained.
Some benefits of Organic Black Chia Seeds may include:
Organic Luo Han Guo: Supports and balances: The Immune, Digestive, Intestinal, Glandular and Respiratory Body Systems
Organic Luo Han Guo is a fruit that Americans are hearing a lot about now. The Chinese have used it as a natural sweetener and healing remedy for many centuries. As far back as the 13th century the monks who live in the steep Guilin mountains of Southern China have also used this sweetener. In fact, it was named after advanced Buddhist practitioners, called “luohan”. The Chinese call this the “longevity fruit” because the steep mountain fields in Guangxi Province where it is grown have an unusual number of residents that live to be 100 years old or more! Many promising studies are underway, which are confirming the nutritional and healing properties of this natural sweetener. It is a cousin of the cucumber, and a member of the gourd family of fruits. It’s a round and smooth, dusty green-brown fruit that is covered with fine soft hairs, and a hard but thin shell. The fruit is used only after it is dried, and can be processed into a powder that contains natural substances called mongrosides. These natural compounds make this a whopping 300 times sweeter than sugar, and are also responsible for some of the health benefits associated with this fruit: It does not elevate insulin levels, raise cholesterol or stimulate fat storage. Lo Han extract is the foremost natural sweetener in the industry. It is being used in formulas to promote and maintain a healthy weight. It is considered safe for diabetics, hypoglycemic’s and children. It adds a nice natural sweetness to functional beverages. Since it is not a sugar alcohol, it doesn’t leave a bitter finish. By isolating the sweet compounds one can obtain extracts that are up to 250 to 300 times sweeter than natural sugar. The Mongrosides in Organic Luo han guo are under investigation as potential tumor inhibitors.
Some benefits of Organic Luo han guo may include:
Organic Cinnamon Powder: Supports and balances: The Immune, Skeletal, and Digestive Body Systems
Organic Cinnamon Powder is one of the oldest and most recognizable flavors in the world. Ancient Egyptians imported it from China and used it as a medicine and food enhancer. Since then it has been used in just about every type of food product available. This spice is obtained from the inner bark of the cinnamon tree. The bark rolls up while drying in the sun, and forms what we know as a cinnamon stick which is left as is or ground into a fine powder. Preliminary lab and animal studies have found that it may have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It’s active against Candida albicans, the fungus that causes yeast infections and thrush, and Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria responsible for stomach ulcers. It has an anti-clotting effect on the blood. Several studies suggest that it may have a regulatory effect on blood sugar, making it especially beneficial for people with Type 2 diabetes. Other studies with cinnamon showed an amazing ability to stop medication-resistant yeast infections. One study even found that smelling cinnamon boosts cognitive function and memory.
In a study published by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Maryland, cinnamon reduced the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells. During research at Copenhagen University, patients given half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder combined with one tablespoon of honey every morning before breakfast had significant relief in arthritis pain after one week. Studies have shown that just a ½ teaspoon of cinnamon per day may lower LDL cholesterol. In addition researchers at Kansas State University found that cinnamon fights the E. coli bacteria in unpasteurized juices. When added to food, it inhibits bacterial growth and food spoilage making it a natural food preservative. Cinnamon is also a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium and is extremely high in ORAC 375,000 per 100G. The first highest being Cloves.
Some benefits of Organic Cinnamon Powder may include:
Organic Golden Flax Seeds: Supports and balances: The Immune, Digestive, and Intestinal Body Systems
The warm, earthy and subtly nutty flavor of Organic Golden Flax Seeds combined with an abundance of omega-3 fatty acids makes them an increasingly popular addition to the diets of many a health conscious consumer. They are slightly larger than sesame seeds and have a hard shell that is smooth and shiny. Their color ranges from deep amber to reddish brown depending upon whether the flax is of the golden or brown variety. While whole flaxseeds feature a soft crunch, the nutrients in ground seeds are more easily absorbed. MEGA WAY Shakes blends them in our formula whole so that they do not ferment so please make sure to blend them well as they are sharp and may cut the inner organs. Additional information about the amount of these nutrients provided by them can be found in the Food Rating System Chart. A link that takes you to the In-Depth Nutritional Profile for Flaxseeds, featuring information of over 80 nutrients, and can be found under the Food Rating System Chart.
Flax seeds are rich in alpha linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fat that is a precursor to the form of omega-3 found in fish oils called eicosapentaenoic acid or EPA. Since the fats are found in their isolated form in flaxseed oil, it is a more concentrated source of ALA than the seeds themselves (although it doesn’t have the other nutrients that the seeds do). ALA, in addition to providing several beneficial effects of its own, can be converted in the body to EPA, thus providing EPA’s beneficial effects. For this conversion to readily take place, however, depends on the presence and activity of an enzyme called delta-6-destaurase, which, in some individuals, is less available or less active than in others. In addition, delta-6-desaturase function is inhibited in diabetes and by the consumption of saturated fat and alcohol. For these reasons, higher amounts of ALA-rich of Organic Golden Flax Seeds or its oil must be consumed to provide the same benefits as the omega-3 fats found in the oil of cold-water fish. Yet research indicates that for those who do not eat fish or wish to take fish oil supplements, flaxseed oil does provide a good alternative.
Organic Turmeric Root Powder: Supports & balances: The Digestive System, Intestinal, Glandular, Circulatory and Immune Body Systems
Popularly used in Indian cuisine, Organic Turmeric Root Powder has been shown to have a broad number of health benefits. Acting as a strong antioxidant and well known for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. It supports a healthy digestive system, brain function, cardiovascular/circulatory systems and joint health. It is one of nature’s most powerful healers. The active ingredient in it is curcumin. It has been used for over 2500 years in India, where it was most likely first used as a dye. The medicinal properties of this spice have been slowly revealing themselves over the centuries. Long known for its anti-inflammatory properties, recent research has revealed that it is a natural wonder, proving beneficial for many different health conditions. Among some of the most interesting health benefits and their recent scientific findings: Alzheimer’s and Dementia Prevention: The 2003 study in Italy as published in the Italian Journal of Biochemistry showed that Organic Turmeric Root Powder protects against Alzheimer’s disease by ‘activating’ a gene that codes for the production of the antioxidant protein bilirubin, which protects the brain against injury from free radicals which are thought to be a responsible for neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
Another study conducted at UCLA and published in the December 2004 issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry, which has been confirmed by further research published online April 20, 2006, in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, provides further insight as to how Turmeric provides multiple areas of protection against the mechanisms which cause Alzheimer’s. This research was so profoundly exciting to researchers that human clinical trials to further investigate its potential as a “preventive, therapeutic agent for Alzheimer’s disease will soon be underway”. A Potent Anti-Inflammatory: Its anti-inflammatory effects have been shown to be comparable to the potent drugs hydrocortisone and phenylbutazone as well as over-the-counter anti-inflammatory agents such as Motrin. And unlike lab-produced pharmaceutical drugs, it has been shown to produce no toxicity, nor the kinds of stomach problems that commonly occur with pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory drugs. Rheumatoid Arthritis: Many clinical studies have shown that the antioxidant properties of Organic Turmeric Root Powder help fight the free radicals responsible for the painful joint inflammation of arthritis. The combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects explains why many people with joint diseases find relief when they use the spice regularly, and in a recent study of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, it was compared to phenylbutazone and produced comparable improvements in shortened duration of morning stiffness, lengthened walking time, and reduced joint swelling.
Cystic Fibrosis: Curcumin, the major constituent of turmeric that gives the spice its yellow color, could help correct the genetic defect that is responsible for cystic fibrosis, as suggested by an animal study published in the April 2004 issue of Science.
Cystic fibrosis, a fatal disease that attacks the lungs with a thick mucus, causing life-threatening infections, and afflicts about 30,000 American children and young adults, who rarely survive beyond 30 years of age. Colon and other Cancers Prevention: Its antioxidant effects help protect the colon cells from free radicals that can damage cellular DNA — a significant benefit particularly in the colon where cell turnover is quite rapid.
By improving liver function, it also helps the body to destroy mutated cancer cells so that they cannot spread through the body and cause more harm. Even more interesting, when it was combined with the vegetable Cauliflower, the protection against colon cancers was even more pronounced, leading researchers to believe the combination of cruciferous vegetables and curcumin could be an “effective therapy not only to prevent prostate cancer, but to inhibit the spread of established prostate cancers”.
