FEATURED PRODUCT: Digest-Force by Prairie Naturals

digest-force-120-v-caps-300ccDigest-Force Activates Healthy Digestion! 

Indigestion is a pain. Literally. More people suffer from chronic indigestion than from any other condition. Activate good digestion quickly with Digest-ForceTM Activated Coconut Charcoal & Ginger Root Extract, the newest member in Prairie Naturals Digestive Health product category.

What are the Ingredients in Digest-Force & What Do They Do?

Digest-Force combines the therapeutic power of activated charcoal from coconut husks with ginger root extract. Blending traditional practices with herbal medicine, this unique formula provides rapid relief from indigestion safely and effectively.

 

• Charcoal from Coconut Husks – It’s a fact that our planet’s original detoxifying agent is charcoal! Prairie Naturals coconut charcoal is “activated” through a carbonproducing process using high heat, pressure and steam. This process expands the therapeutic “adsorption” (suction) effect of charcoal by making it more porous and expanding its surface area. Prairie Naturals Digest-ForceTM formula with activated coconut charcoal has the distinct power to neutralize and eliminate various toxic substances (including allergens) by binding them unto itself and moving them safely out of the body. In fact, activated charcoal has proven so effective and safe that it is routinely used in hospitals as an antidote to drug and poison toxicity!

 

• Ginger Root (Zingiber officinale) Extract (10:1) – This traditional medicinal is revered as one of the world’s most ancient and effective digestive remedies. Extensive scientific analyses indicate that the primary active constituents (phytochemical terpenes gingerol and shogaol, along with oleoresin) aid & protect the digestive tract. The therapeutic use of ginger extract immediately reduces indigestion, gas, bloating and nausea.

Sinfully Delicious Coconut Whipped Cream … Times Two

Coconut whipped cream offers all the health benefits of coconut oil (MCT’s, Lauric Acid, etc.) while providing you a novel and tasty way to enjoy these benefits.  Why not try a recipe for your Valentine’s Day desert?  Coconut whipped cream is great with heart shaped (gluten-free) brownies, organic fruit, or even chocolate almond pudding.  Honestly, I eat it a bit too often!!!
You can make two types of whipped cream – a soft whip, or a firm whip.  Here’s how to make each version:
Makes 2-3 cups whipped cream
Ingredients
  • Firmer Whipped Cream:
  • 2 cans (15.33 ounces each) organic coconut milk, refrigerated over night
  • 2 Tablespoons Grade A organic maple syrup or local honey
  • 1 Teaspoon organic vanilla extract
  • Softer Whipped Cream:
  • 1 tetra pak of coconut cream, refrigerated over night
  • 2 Tablespoons Grade A organic maple syrup or local honey
  • 1 Teaspoon organic vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. For the firmer whipped cream: scoop off the solid coconut cream from off the top, leaving the liquid behind for another use (add it to your smoothie).
    Place the coconut cream, maple syrup or honey, and the vanilla in a mixer and beat on high for 10 minutes until the whipped cream is fluffy.
  2. For the softer whipped cream: pour the entire tetra pak of coconut cream into a mixer bowl and add the maple syrup or honey and the vanilla. Beat the mixture on high for 15 minutes until the cream is light, fluffy, and holds a very soft peak.
  3. Serve both types of whipped cream as soon as possible for best results.
    The softer whipped cream will usually hold in the refrigerator up to 2 days without separating.
    The firmer version usually starts to separate in a day.
  4. TIP:  Keep all your tools ice cold (put your mixing blades and bowl in the freezer for a while before starting this recipe)

Party Survival – Party Smart!

When heading out to party this weekend – consider taking a few supplements along with you to ease the suffering later in the evening and the next morning:

 

Our Staff Fav is Party Smart by Himalaya.  All of us who like to enjoy a drink or two have tried it (including at our staff Christmas Party) and we LOVE it!  All you need is 1 – 2 pills during your festivities and you wake up feeling great!  If you’re a smaller person (150lb or less) one pill is typically enough, however if you’re a bit larger, or you’re really enjoying your drinks – another pill at bedtime helps!

Party Smart is a blend of herbs that cause the by-product of alcohol metabolism to be easily flushed by the body, thus avoiding the awful hang over symptoms we’re all trying to avoid at this time of year!  Perfectly safe and fine to take along with any medications.  Plus – it’s totally affordable!  Pop in a grab one for New Year’s – we’re open until 6:30 New Year’s Eve this year.

 

Digestive Enzymes are another life saver – none of us leave the house without them!  If you plan on over indulging a basic digestive enzyme will help your body break down all that extra food!  If you are vegetarian, there are enzyme specifically for you, too.  If you are gluten intolerant – and you can’t be sure of the foods you’re going to be eating at a party GlutenEase is a staff favourite.  And if you’re lactose intolerant, and you’re not positive what’s in that baked good, Lactase is a life saver!

Digestive enzymes help prevent bloating, discomfort, gas, and that awful heavy exhausted feeling you get from eating too much.  They’re lifesavers at a party!

 

Probiotics are a great way to help digestion along as well – make sure you take a double dose at bedtime to prevent constipation and support strong digestion overnight (and even help with nausea if you’ve drunk a little too much!)

 

Magnesium is a great hangover cure too!  Lisa always takes 2 New Roots Herbal Magnesium Bisglycinate pills before bed after drinking to prevent that awful pulsing headache that goes along with hang overs!

 

Be safe everyone and have a Happy New Year!!!
