Chia | A True Superfood!

with one comment

I was recently turned on to this incredible seed that is not only amazing for your body, but can help fight against future diseases and ailments.  Chia seed, which you all can laugh about right now, is used on the Chia Pet.  One of those million dollar ideas that someone had in the 1980’s and is still marketed today.  What people don’t know is the Chia Seed is an incredible source of Omega 3 fatty acids, protein, calcium, phosphorus, manganese, calcium, potassium and sodium.  It can help slow the absorption of sugars into the blood stream, actually make you feel less hungry, and keep you hydrated at the same time.  The seeds are turned into a gel by mixing with water, you can eat it with a spoon and it is literally tasteless.  I bought some Chia Seeds recently via Amazon from The Raw Food World.  The business is owned by a couple that has been eating Raw Food for around a decade,  and make no mistakes about it, they have had incredible results.  Now I am not a Vegan or Vegetarian, but I respect their ways.  What I am always looking for are new ways to keep my body healthy.  We only go this way once and anything I can do in moderation to extend my stay, I’m game.  Make sure to check out all Coinologist Heath and Wellness posts here.

Kombucha Update

leave a comment »

I’m happy to say GT’s Kombucha is back on the shelves.  They reworked the formula as to not have it ferment to the old levels.  I have been told and have seen chatter on their facebook page that the original will be re-released and be regulated to the over 21 crowd.  I say welcome back GT’s Kombucha!  Make sure to check out all Coinologist Heath and Wellness posts here.

Kombucha | Organic~Raw~Probiotic

with 3 comments

I found Kombucha about six months ago.  It is an amazing beverage, you will either love it or hate it.  Some call it a drink, some call it an elixer, but no matter what you call it, Kombucha is incredible, it’s been used around the world for centuries to help restore balance and vitality.  The brand I fell in love with and continues to be my favorite is GT’s.  I urge you to read through the health benefits.  Here’s the catch on buying Kombucha right now.  This beverage goes through a fermentation process, with that said alcohol is created.  This amounts to about 0.5%, about the same amount in a near beer.  An issue arose that the fermentation process didn’t stop once bottled, and the amount of alcohol content could increase.  GT’s voluntarily pulled their product from the shelves and is researching this.  That’s a huge move, since they did $40,000,000.00 in business last year.  So it’s been a few months now and I still can’t find GT’s on the shelf, but some smaller companies are filling the void at the moment.  I found kombucha at Whole Foods, although most health stores carry it.  Make sure to check out all Coinologist Heath and Wellness posts here.
