We are kinda famous for our Certified Organic Maca Powder that is grown in Peru by traditional farmers at a high altitude – the way it has been grown for millenias. There has been plenty of research to show that Maca acts as an adaptagen in the body, helping to balance hormones and improve mood.

Simply Amazing!! I don’t know how I survived before I used this product. I have got about 10 people from my office using it now,
Wheat Grass (20%) for nutrition and detox.
Our Certified Organic Wheatgrass is proudly 100% Australian. It is grown, harvested and powderised in Swan Hill, Victoria. A widely-enjoyed use of wheatgrass is in regular small doses for the purpose of detoxifying. Some people believe that the high chlorophyll content is an effective agent for ridding the body of heavy metals. As chlorophyll is similar in atomic structure to our own red blood cells, it is easily absorbed by humans and helps the body build red blood cells which carry oxygen to every cell, improving regular blood flow throughout the body.
|“This plant is believed to have many nutritional values; it has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic, immunomodulatory, laxative, astringent, diuretic, antibacterial and anti-aging properties… Wheatgrass juice helps in building red blood cells and stimulates healthy tissue cell growth. 100 g of wheatgrass powder is equal to 23 kg of fresh vegetables. (full journal article).|
As with most healthy greens wheatgrass contains a host of important vitamins, such as A, C, K, and B6. It is also particularly rich in vitamin E, and contains iron, zinc, and manganese which help complete the amazing nutritional profile of this highly beneficial plant product.
I’ve never felt this good before. My digestion system has improved and I’m seeing a lot of positive changes in my over all health.
Cacao (20%) for its anti aging and mood boosting effects.
Our Raw Cacao Powder comes from Peru where it is considered native. Cacao is actually the unrefined bean that chocolate comes from and it is known for its antioxidant and energy boosting effects. Stacked with flavonoids, antioxidants and essential minerals including large amounts of magnesium, the rich taste of organic cacao powder can be added to a wide variety of dishes to deliver an incredibly rich flavour along with a range of health benefits.
It has 4x the amount of antioxidants of goji berries, helping protect the body eradicate free radicals. Free radicals are unstable chemicals that damage cell membranes and attack healthy cells which can lead to disease and damage of the body. Raw cacao powder is so high in antioxidants it tops the ORAC chart (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), a rating system devised by the USDA to measure levels of antioxidants in food. Along with its high antioxidant content, cacao powder contains a massive 10% total flavinoid content. Flavonoids can have a substantial positive impact on overall heart health, and are have been shown to prevent various types of cardiovascular disease.
Psychiatrists have said that the feeling you get after eating chocolate is very similar to the feeling you get when your in love: I must admit after my morning Cacao drink I feel much loved, bright eyed and bushy tailed…
The presence of seratonin, dopamine, PEA & anandamide in raw cacao powder explains the high or happy feeling people associate with eating chocolate. These neurotransmitters regulate the pleasure centre in the brain, and cacao powder has enough of these pleasure-boosting chemicals to provide a noticeable increase in mood and general feelings of well-being.
Camu Camu (15%) for skin and inflammation.
Our Certified Organic Camu Camu is wildly harvested in Peru. It is rich in antioxidants and vitamin c as evidence from its tangy flavour. Beware as a lot of inferior Camu Camu is coming from China. Camu camu has been shown to have anti-oxidising and anti-inflammatory properties due to its high vitamin C content and high antioxidant properties.
|A study performed by the Laboratory of Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods Science at Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology in Japan studied the effect of camu camu on smokers who showed symptoms of accelerated oxidative stress. After just seven days of consuming camu camu juice, signs of the oxidative stress decreased significantly as did inflammation.|
1/2 a teaspoon of Camu Camu contains over 400% of your RDI of Vitamin C. Vitamin C protects your skin from the effects of aging as it is rich in antioxidants. The antioxidants help to protect against free radicals. Camu Camu has also been found to assist the body in collagen production.
Chia seeds (15%) for iron levels and and brain health.
Omega fatty acids are imperative for a healthy brain and the human body can’t produce them itself. Therefore it is imperative to eat foods high in Omega fatty acids. Chia has been found to be high in Omega 3 fatty acids and polyphenols. Our organic chia seeds are raw and have not been irradiated or processed, leaving their high nutritional content intact. They are also certified organic so you know they are free of any pesticides or herbicides.
Back again to stock up on more Chia Seeds. I have found so many different ways to have them as well as just eating them as they are. Also with trying to lose weight they are excellent for this, as they make you feel full and give you the energy to excersise throughout the day. Love them and your excellent customer service A+
Iron is incredibly important to our lives, as anyone who is low on iron will tell you. We need it to carry blood around the body, to take oxygen to the brain and from proper muscle function. Diets low in iron risk fatigue, anemia and low immunity.
|Research published in the Journal of Food Science found Chia Seeds to be incredibly high in iron. 6x more iron than Spinach and 2.4x more iron than beef liver (Bushway, Belyea, Bushway. 2006 – full journal article).|
Maqui (10%) for weight management and heart health.
Our Certified Organic Maqui comes from Brazil where it is wildly harvested from the forest. Maqui has been found to cause a better increase in insulin in the body than any other plant. This means it can help to suppress blood glucose which means more energy and the avoidance of the forming of new fat cells. Some studies have shown that Maqui might help to prevent the oxidation of cholesterol in the blood. Oxidation of cholesterol has been linked to heart attack, stroke and the hardening of the arteries.
My morning smoothie just isn’t the same with out Maqui. As with all the Forest Superfoods products I use the quality is first rate.
