Nature's Whole Food Fiber Source
~ Provides a Balanced Source of Soluble and Insoluble Fiber
The Critical Role of Dietary Fiber
The role of dietary fiber has increasingly grown in prominence since as early as 1860 with the advent of the technology for refining sugar, followed soon thereafter by improved milling methods that began removing the fiber from flour. Improvements in rail and sea transport along with refrigeration, enabled the distribution of these foods to a worldwide marketplace. Prosperous, more industrialized countries were predominantly the beneficiaries of these new wonder foods. Simultaneously, the populations of these countries began suffering en masse with digestive and bowel disorders. In the recent 50 years as three generations have come to pass, the prevalence of these and multiple related disorders have reached a critical peak. Foodstuffs have become so de-natured that they are almost unrecognizable from their whole, original state.
Current statistics are undeniably revealing:
Up to 100 million Americans suffer from varied forms of digestive diseases with an estimated total in lost wages and medical costs of over $50 billion per year. Approximately 200,000 people miss work every day due to these disorders. Health statistics show that more Americans are hospitalized with digestive tract disorders than any other group of diseases. These medical costs tower at more than $20 billion per year. The annual sales of prescription and over the counter drug products for digestion related maladies has grown to $2.5 billion per year, increasing at a steady rate of 10% over the last decade, contributing substantially to our overall health care costs. These include laxatives, antacids, anti-hemorrhoidal and anti-diarrheal preparations.

Why is Fiber Important?
Death begins in the colon, and so too does vibrant health. Choosing to supply your body with adequate dietary fiber on a daily basis is an important co-factor in bowel and colon super health. The following are some of the many essential functions that dietary fiber performs in the body:
~ Reduces risk of colon cancer
~ Escorts cholesterol and triglycerides out of the body
~ Stimulates pancreatic enzyme activity
~ Slows glucose absorption thus stabilizing blood glucose levels by slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar, creating a physical barrier between carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down
~ Aids in weight loss by providing a feeling of fullness
~ Reduces calorie absorption
~ May ease Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
~ Enhances the absorption of bile acids and salts
~ May aid in the prevention of some metabolic diseases
~ Assists in the elimination of sluggish bowel and constipation
~ May lower blood pressure, help decrease allergic response, and provide relief in inflammatory conditions
~ Important for the respiration of vital organs in transporting oxygen into the blood stream, cells, tissue and organs
~ Helps to maintain resilience and lubrication of the cells by binding with protein and cholesterol to form living membranes that hold body cells together
What's in Super Seed?
FLAX SEED: Nature's most abundant vegetarian source of Omega 3 fatty acids, vitally important for strength, the heart and arterial walls, lowering cholesterol, reducing high blood pressure, diminishing insulin requirement acuity, brain development, adrenal function and sperm formulation. Flax Seed is the richest known source of "lignans", a constituent of fiber that promotes anti-tumoral, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and antioxidant effects in the body.
CHIA SEED: A staple food used by the Indians of the southwest and Mexico, Chia is known for its remarkable capacity to absorb more than 12 times its weight in water. Chia Seeds allow the body to regulate more efficiently the absorption of nutrients and body fluids, while maintaining the electrolyte balance. The high oil content of the Chia Seed makes it a bountiful source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids.
SPROUTED QUINOA (keen-wa): Consumed for thousands of years as an indigenous food of South America, Quinoa's origins are truly ancient. Greatly revered by the Inca civilization as the "mother grain", Quinoa is touted in modern day as a perfect food, due to its impressive nutritional profile. It is considered to be a complete protein comprising the full essential amino acid spectrum. It contains more protein than any other grain; an average of 16.2 percent, with some varieties more than 20 percent. Its amino acid balance is similar to that of milk. Quinoa is high in lysine, methionine and cystine, constituents of protein that are often very low in other grains. In addition to protein, its unique profile supplies carbohydrates, natural sugars, unsaturated oil (especially high in linoleic acid), vitamins and minerals, and is an excellent source of vital dietary fiber.
SPROUTED AMARANTH: Once a staple food of the pre-Columbian Aztecs, Amaranth first found its way to the Americas from China, and eventually reaching Mexico as early as 2000 BC. Primarily thought of and used in recipes as a grain, Amaranth is actually a fruit whose bushy plant grows 5-7 feet, with a distinguishing intense red or magenta flower head displaying itself in exquisite feathery plumes. Each plant is capable of producing 40,000 - 60,000 edible seeds. Amaranth is notably high in protein, 15-18 percent, and contains exceptional amounts of calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorous and vitamins A, C and E. The germ of the Amaranth Seed is high in linoleic rich unsaturated oil. Most notable is its impressive fiber content, which is 3 times higher than wheat.
PUMPKIN SEED: Dating back over 7,000 years to its origins in Central America, Pumpkin Seeds are known to be a potent healing food in urinary tract and prostate health. They are an excellent fiber source high in phosphorous, iron, calcium, vitamin A, folic acid, niacin and essential fatty acids.
SUNFLOWER SEED: Native to North America, the Sunflower was first grown and used by the American Indians. Sunflower Seeds have an impressive nutrient profile, containing significant amounts of calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. In addition, they are an excellent source of protein, the B vitamins, carotenoids and Omega 6 essential fatty acids. Most notably, Sunflower Seeds are higher in dietary fiber than all other seeds and nuts.
SESAME SEED: A traditional food in oriental and Middle Eastern cultures, Sesame Seeds have been used medicinally to relieve constipation, stiff joints, backaches, weak knees and is considered an overall strengthening food. High in protein, niacin, calcium, copper, iron and significantly in magnesium - Sesame Seeds also contain substantial unsaturated fat and dietary fiber.
LEGUME FIBER BLEND: A high fiber blend of Garbanzo, Red Lentil, Kidney and Adzuki Beans, rich in naturally occurring B-complex vitamins, calcium, potassium, phosphorous, iron, zinc, folic acid and omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. Legumes are an excellent vegetarian source of protein and contain significant amounts of dietary fiber.
MILLET: The chief cereal grain for millions of people in India, China, Africa, Russia and throughout Europe - Millet is most noted for its high silica content, an important component for the nervous system, tendons, skin, nails and hair. It proudly contains no gluten, significant for those on a gluten-free regime, and is abundantly rich in digestible dietary fiber.
BUCKWHEAT: Not actually a grain, but the seed of an herb, Buckwheat is a dietary staple in the hardy northern climates of Russia and Brittany. It contains substantial amounts of lysine, calcium, vitamin E, the entire B vitamin complex, and is especially noted for its high leatrille (vitamin B17) content. As well, it provides a good source of dietary fiber.
CINNAMON: A potent harmonizer with considerable medicinal value, Cinnamon stimulates digestion and exhibits antiseptic properties. Studies have shown that it strengthens insulin activity, helping the body process sugars more efficiently.
The Poten-Zyme Process:
Each of the nutrient dense ingredients in Super Seed utilizes a natural proprietary process of lacto-fermentation and enzymatic pre-digestion called "Poten-Zyme" (Poten-tiation by Enzym-atic activation). This exclusive delivery system employs 14 strains of beneficial probiotic micro-organisms within a whole food matrix, thereby liberating valuable medicinal compounds, and enhancing bio-availability and absorption of healing properties as much as 2-5 times. Note: The Poten-Zyme process makes the seeds and legumes used in Super Seed significantly easier to digest; by neutralizing phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors, and breaking down difficult to digest complex sugars, thus reducing the flatulence usually associated with beans and seeds.
