Organic Pumpkin Seeds
Pumpkin seeds have long been valued as a source of the mineral zinc. Whole roasted, unshelled pumpkin seeds contain about 10 milligrams of zinc per 3.5 ounces, pumpkin seeds are a rich source of vitamin E and Omega fatty acids.
Organic Sunflower Seeds
Organic Sunflower Seeds Hulled supply a good source of vitamin E, magnesium and selenium. Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of vitamin E, the body’s primary fat-soluble antioxidant. Vitamin E travels throughout the body neutralizing free radicals that would otherwise damage fat-containing structures and molecules, such as cell membranes, brain cells, and cholesterol. In addition, vitamin E and the Omega Fatty Acids play an important role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Vitamin E is one of the main antioxidants found in cholesterol particles and helps prevent free radicals from oxidizing cholesterol. In a study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, researchers published the amounts of phytosterols present in nuts and seeds commonly eaten in the United States. Sesame seeds had the highest total phytosterol content (400-413 mg per 100 grams), and English walnuts and Brazil nuts the lowest (113 mg/100grams and 95 mg/100 grams). (100 grams is equivalent to 3.5 ounces.) Of the nuts and seeds typically consumed as snack foods, sunflower seeds and pistachios were richest in phytosterols (270-289 mg/100 g), followed by pumpkin seeds (265 mg/100 g). They are also high in Magnesium.

Certified OrganicRaw Red Maca Root Powder:
Supports & Balances: The Hormonal, Emotional & Mental Body Systems.
Certified Organic Red Maca Root has traditionally been a staple superfood-food-herb in the harsh cold climates of the high Andes in Peru for thousands of years.Macagrows 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 ofMacahave been developed by the extreme conditions under which it grows. This makesMacaan excellent food-herb choice for individuals living in cold climates and/or at high altitudes and/or with extreme lifestyles.Macais a member of the cruciferous family of plants. It is a distant relative of the common radish. TheMacaplant 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. Red Macahas the same nutritional profile and all of the same beneficial properties as regular (white, yellow or black)Maca, but it appears that phytochemical analyses showedto have greater amounts of the compounds responsible for antioxidant and anti tumor activity than other types ofMaca. Archeological evidence has been found, thatMacawas domesticated over 2,000 years ago by the predecessors of the Incan people. Even today, for many indigenous inhabitants of the Andes,Macais still one of the most vital and valuable of all commodities.TheRedMaca Roothas been used over the ages for its nutritional and herbal qualities. Once harvested,The Red Maca Rootwas 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 exchangeMacawould 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 Macawere used as money by ancient indigenous peoples.
Certified Organic Ashwagandha Root Powder:
Supports and Balances: The Immune and Emotional/Mental Body Systems.
Certified Organic Ashwagandha Root Powder supports and balances 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.
Health Benefits of Certified Organic Ashwagandha Root Powder may include:
- Improving memory and mental function
- Benefits for occasional panic attacks and anxiety
- Battling depression and stabilizing mild to moderate mood changes
- Combating mental or physical fatigue
- Enhancing immune-system support

Certified Organic Black Chia Seeds:Supports and Balances;
The Circulatory, Digestive, Intestinal, and the Immune Body Systems
Certified 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.
Health Benefits of Certified Organic Black Chia Seeds may include:
- Supporting cardiovascular health
- Being very high in soluble fiber
- Improving digestion and natural detoxification
- Strong antioxidant benefits
- Assisting joint function and mobility
- Great for prolonged energy and endurance
- Supporting a healthy heart
- Supporting healthy weight
- Supporting healthy blood pressure levels

Certified Organic Luo Han Guo:
Supports and Balances: The Immune, Digestive, Intestinal, Glandular and Respiratory Body Systems
Certified 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 13thcentury 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.
Health Benefits of Certified Organic Luo han guo may include:
- Antioxidant properties.
- May help manage diabetes because of their inhibitory effects on blood sugar levels.

Certified Organic Cinnamon Powder:Supports and Balances:
The Immune, Skeletal, and Digestive Body Systems
Certified 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.

Certified 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.
- A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that flaxseed oil capsules providing 3 grams of alpha-linolenic acid daily for 12 weeks—an amount that would be provided by 3 tablespoons of flaxseed oil a day—increased blood levels of EPA by 60% in a predominantly African-American population with chronic illness. A recent Med Line check (Med Line provides access to the published peer-reviewed medical literature) revealed 1,677 research articles on linolenic acid, investigating its effects on numerous physiological processes and health conditions.
- Omega-3 fats are used by the body to produce series 1 and 3 prostaglandins, which are anti-inflammatory hormone-like molecules, in contrast to the series 2 prostaglandins, which are pro-inflammatory molecules produced from other fats, notably the omega-6 fats, which are found in high amounts in animal fats, margarine, and many vegetable oils including corn, safflower, sunflower, palm, and peanut oils.
- Omega-3 fats can help reduce the inflammation that is a significant factor in conditions such as asthma, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine headaches, and osteoporosis. Alpha linolenic acid, the omega-3 fat found in flaxseed and walnuts, promotes bone health by helping to prevent excessive bone turnover—when consumption of foods rich in this omega-3 fat results in a lower ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats in the diet.(Griel AE, Kris-Etherton PM, et al. Nutrition Journal) Other studies have shown that diets rich in the omega-3s from fish (DHA and EPA), which also naturally result in a lowered ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats, reduce bone loss. Researchers think this is most likely because omega-6 fats are converted into pro-inflammatory prostaglandins, while omega-3 fats are metabolized into anti-inflammatory prostaglandins. (Prostaglandins are hormone-like substances made in our bodies from fatty acids.)
Certified 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 bearesponsible 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 cur cumin could be an “effective therapy not only to prevent prostate cancer, but to inhibit the spread of established prostate cancers”.
