The Goji berry is a deep-red, dried fruit about the same size as a raisin. It's very sweet and tastes something like a cross between a cranberry and a cherry. We love adding them to smoothies, trail-mix, cereals, especially our buckola, and eating them on just their own or with cacao beans.

Nicknamed the "happy berry" for its ability to restore a person's vitality, there are more than forty different types of berries that are often referred to as goji berries..

Loving Earth Organic Goji Berries are certified organic Goji Berries. They are grown in a pristine, certified organic part of the Ningxia autonomous region, located between Tibet and Inner Mongolia. The goji berry is sacred to the people of this remote autonomous region and they hold a special festival every year to honor and celebrate the life giving qualities of this extraordinary berry.

Are you wondering how a tiny red berry can have such a positive effect on your health?
    * To start, the goji berry is higher in antioxidants than any other known food.
    * The goji berry contains 18 amino acids – the building blocks for protein.
    * The goji berry contains over 12 times more protein than apples, oranges, or strawberries.
    * The goji berry is a better source of beta-carotene than carrots themselves.
    * 21 trace minerals, including Germanium
    * 6 essential fatty acids including Linoleic acid, which significantly promotes body fat loss
    * Vitamins B1, B2, B6, E
    * 500 times more Vitamin C than oranges
    * 4 Unique Polysaccharides (Master Molecules) found in no other food source

Goji Berry Antioxidants  
Free radicals damage cells and DNA, increase the cancer risk, and accelerate the aging rocess. The more antioxidants, the more effective the neutralizing capacity is in slowing down the aging process. If free radicals go unchecked, they can even attack and damage DNA, possibly causing deformation and mutation of the blueprinted cells.
 
Immunity Enhancer
Due to aging, the body's immune system often becomes dysfunctional, where in immune cells can have difficulty recognizing the difference between the body's cells and foreign cells. This can lead to auto-immune problems. The polysaccharides found in Goji berries have been known to inhibit three kinds of inflammation. These polysaccharides were also found to stimulate the interleukin-2 and gamma interferon, which are anti-inflammatory and induce immune responses.
 
ORAC Test
The ORAC Test is a standardized test adopted by the US. Department of Agriculture to measure the Total Antioxidant Potency of foods and nutritional supplements. The antioxidant capacity of the blood seems to be tightly regulated.  A significant increase in antioxidants of 15 to 20 percent is possible by increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables, particularly those high in ORAC value.  Dr. Cao and Dr. Prior of the Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University have established a recommended 5,000 ORAC Units Daily to have a significant impact on plasma and tissue antioxidant capacity and for helping prevent certain age related diseases.

Dried Goji berries and Human Growth Hormone 
Goji berries are known to have a unique polysaccharide that stimulates the pituitary gland in the anterior of the brain to produce more Human Growth Hormone, the master hormone in our bodies. HGH is know to slow down, and even reverse some of the effects of aging. For centuries, people in Asia that have customarily eaten Goji berries have been documented to live longer and healthier lives with little or no incidence of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimers disease, fibromyalgia, lupus, multiple scirosis, or a host of other "dread" diseases that are afflicting many of the Industrialized Nations of the world.

Professor Li Qing Yuen is documented as being the oldest person to have ever lived in recorded history. Born in 1678 and living to 1930, he was documented by the Government of China as having lived to 252 years of age. Twice he received Longevity Awards from the Government. It is said he ate Goji berries on a regular daily basis.

More Benefits
Goji berries have been traditionally regarded as a longevity, strength-building, and sexual potency food of the highest order.  The goji berry was celebrated as early as the first century A.D. by Shen Nong Ben Cao in the Divine Farmer's Handbook of Natural Medicine (one of the most important texts in the history of Chinese medicine).

 "Lycium [the goji berry] tonifies jing [vital energy] and qi [breath] and strengthens the yin tao [capacity for physical exercise]."
  - Tao Hong Jing, Commentary on the Divine Farmer's Handbook of Natural Medicine

Recently, in several study groups with elderly people, goji berries were given once a day for 3 weeks.  Many beneficial results were experienced and 67% of the patients T cell transformation functions tripled and the activity of the patients white cell interleukin-2 doubled. In addition, the results showed that all the patients spirit and optimism increased significantly, appetite improved in 95% of the patients, 95% of the patients slept better, and 35% of the patients partially recovered their sexual function.

Many people who now eat Goji berries on a daily basis notice improved eyesight, restoration of hair color, improved libido, mood enhancement, noticeable improvement in energy levels, better sleeping habits, and more zest for life.

 "Pang jia [goji berries] cure illness related to the heart and clear heat [discomfort and illness] within the body."
  - Gama Rangjunduojie, Tibetan Medical Doctor

Production
The plants grow like bushes with vines that reach over 15 feet. The berries are never touched by hand as they will oxidize and turn black if touched while fresh. They are shaken onto mats, and then dried in the shade. These berries are grown without pesticides or other chemicals in one of the purest places on earth.

About Hemp
Hemp has been called the perfect plant.  Hemp seed oil contains what is considered to be an ideal ratio of Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids- 3:1, perfectly matching the needs of the human body. In addition to the EFAs hemp seed provides, it is also one of the richest sources of amino acids. Along with the EFAs, these two components are responsible for keratin formation, the primary protein that gives your hair structural integrity.

Hemp is quite simply, nature's health and beauty secret - and the secret is in the seed. Hemp seed oil and extract offer many benefits useful in personal care products. The reason hemp is so effective is largely because of the essential fatty acids (EFAs) it contains. More than 75% of the EFAs in hemp seed oil are poly-unsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), known for their excellent emollient and lubricating properties.

Facts on hemp
The hulled hempseed does not contain any Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). (THC is normally stored in the fleshy parts of the plant, especially the leaves. None is contained in the seeds, flowers, or roots of the plant.)

Hemp seed can be processed, much like soy, into many nutritious foods and cosmetic ingredients. Hemp seed is far more nutritious than even soybean oil and though it contains less total protein, it is far more digestible to humans.

Hemp seed contains, on average: 25% protein, 30% carbohydrates, 15% insoluble fibre, 30% oil, the nutrients carotene, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, sulphur, calcium, iron, zinc, and the vitamins E, C, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Hemp seed also is one of the few seeds to contain Omega-6 and Omega-3 Linoleic acid, commonly found in fish and useful to the immune system.

Hemp oil has been found to be a highly nutritious, essential hair and skin aid for protection, growth and anti-aging.

Hemp has excellent healing and moisturising properties.

Because of its EFA profile, hemp seed oil instantly counteracts the effects of degreasing and dehydration, conditions that produce dry skin and hair.

In addition to improving the structural quality of the hair, hemp seed oil's high lipid content helps increase elasticity, volume, combability and shine. Hemp is used as fibre for rope, twine, tough cloth, and paper as well as other products where wood pulp is currently used.
Hemp could help preserve natural resources. For instance, hemp used for paper would replenish itself in 90 days instead of the 20-40 years required to grow trees. An acre of hemp can produce 4 times the amount of paper that an acre of trees can produce.

Hemp requires no herbicides or pesticides for cultivation and refertilises soil naturally making the ground useful for future crops.

History of hemp
Hemp has been in continual use by human civilization for at least 10,000 years.  The first written record of cannabis was supposedly penned by one of the early Chinese emperors around 2700 B.C.  Islamic/Arabic empires created Europe's first paper mill utilizing hemp in about 1150 A.D.  In 1563 A.D., as part of the economic and military build-up of the time (80 years war), Queen Elizabeth I orders all land owners with 60 acres or more to grow Cannabis or face a £5 fine.

For centuries the fibre of the hemp plant has been used for rope, sails and other textiles.  Early drafts of The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution were written on hemp paper.

George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both farmed hemp crops – the colonists were legally bound to grow hemp as one of their crops and could use hemp to pay their taxes. During times of shortage, farmers were sent to jail for not growing hemp.

In 1941 Popular Mechanics introduced Henry Ford's new plastic car, manufactured from and fuelled by hemp (an early bio diesel variant). Hoping to break the petroleum industries' monopoly of control on his company, Ford illegally grew hemp for over a year.

The 1942 Japanese invasion of the Philippines cut off the US supply of Manila hemp, among other vital resources. The US government distributed over 400,000 pounds of hempseed to farmers in order to limit the supply gap as much as possible, subsidizing hemp cultivation during WWII. American farmers grew about a million acres as part of that program.

In New Zealand hemp businesses began to appear, in more recent times, during the early to mid 1990s. Hemp product availability has continued to grow ever since.

By 2004, a few U.S. states had again legalised production of industrial hemp and this continues to grow.  In 2005, for the first time a New Zealand hemp seed oil was available in health stores and outlets. Last year, a successful venture by two Canterbury businesses culminated, in March of 2006 with the first harvest of Hemp on a commercial scale in New Zealand. The crop was grown spray free and required very little irrigation.

Hemp seed oil is considered to be the most nutritional of all oils available. It has a plethora of medicinal, nutritional, and cosmetic uses, making it a wonderful multi-purpose ingredient. It has been used for many years medicinally, and was even used during Ming Dynasty by the Chinese under the name of Ma Zi.

Hemp seed oil provides the body with complete protein, nutrition, and with all the essential amino acids necessary for health and wellness.

Medicinal and cosmetic use
Hemp seed oil is a highly nutritious food, and contains antioxidants, protein, carotene, phytosterols, phospholipids, as well as a number of minerals including calcium, magnesium, sulfur, potassium, iron, zinc, and phosphorus. It is a source of complete protein and contains all 20 known amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids. It also contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D, and E. The green color in hemp seed oil is a result of the high level of chlorophyll which is naturally present in the seeds.

Perhaps the most valued property of hemp seed oil is its percentage of essential fatty acids, which is higher than any other plant in the world. It contains both Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential fatty acids, in a proportion of 3:1. This proportion is the recommended balance of Omega-6 to Omega-3 acids, making it a simple perfect way to complete your diet.

Essential fatty acids are necessary for our health, and are responsible for the lustre in our skin, hair, eyes, transferring oxygen to every cell in our body, and even the clarity in our thought processes. They also lubricate and clear the arteries, strengthen the immune system, and help prevent viruses and other threats to our immune system. Essential fatty acids are not produced by the human body. Instead, they must be obtained from food sources.

Specifically, hemp seed oil has been shown to assist with the following medical conditions:
• Eczema
• Psoriasis
• Acne
• Osteoporosis
• Menopause
• Cancer
• Multiple sclerosis
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Premenstrual symptoms
• High cholesterol
• High blood pressure
• Weight loss
• Poor circulation
• Crohn's disease
• Cardiovascular disease
• Gall stones
• Kidney degeneration
• Dry skin
• Immune deficiency
• Irregular hormone levels
• HIV virus
• Tuberculosis
• Low energy levels
• Low metabolism
• Dry skin and hair conditions

 

In cosmetic and body-care products, hemp seed oil is anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing, balances dry skin, fights skin inflammations, helps heal skin lesions, has antioxidants, and contains moisture balancing properties. The oil is non-greasy, readily absorbs into the pores, is an emollient, and has rejuvenating and moisturising properties for the skin. Adult users of hemp seed oil have reported softer skin, and stronger nails and hair after only a few weeks of using 1-2 tablespoons per day. The vitamins and minerals present in hemp- seed oil are easily absorbed through the skin, resulting in a more vitamin and mineral-enriched body-care product.

Usage instructions
The pleasantly nutty taste of hemp seed oil makes it easy to incorporate into your culinary recipes. In one tablespoon, you will receive 2.5 grams of Omega-3 fatty acids, 8 grams of Omega-6 fatty acids, and 2 grams of Omega-9 fatty acids - a perfect balance. No other single source oil has this ideal combination of essential fatty acids. Hemp seed oil is easily digestible in its raw state. It contains less than 10% saturated fats, and 70-80% polyunsaturated fatty acids, the highest of any vegetable oil . This is an unusually high level of the good oils, making this oil beneficial for culinary use. In culinary use, the oil will not clog arteries, as do saturated and trans fatty acids or shortenings.

This oil should not be fried, and should preferably be used cold. It may easily be added to salad dressings, pasta, vegetables, smoothies, soups, sauces, hummus, guacamole, pesto, or other foods after the heating/baking has been completed. If you must heat the oil, it may be gently heated for a short period of time.

Unlike flaxseed oil, hempseed oil can be used continuously without developing a deficiency or other imbalance of EFAs. This has been demonstrated in a clinical study, where the daily ingestion of flaxseed oil decreased the endogenous production of GLA.

Hemp seed oil may be added to any body-care or cosmetic product, including creams, lotions, facial or body oils, massage oils, shampoo, conditioner, shaving products, lip balm, soap, and any other product. In hair care products, it  increases elasticity, manageability, and shine.

Recent Canadian research has shown this oil to possibly be effective as a broad-spectrum ultraviolet skin sunscreen.

Hemp Protein Powder - Chemical Free - New Zealand

  • Description
  • More Details

This is a raw hemp high protein powder suitable for vegans, vegetarians and anyone who wants to boost proteins in their diet without having to consume whey or soy proteins. This protein powder is an amazing product. Hemp contains complete protein and is similar type of protein to egg protein. Hemp protein is the best of the of seed & nut based complete proteins. We have 2 grades available: 30% & 45% protein.

This hemp protein powder is a lovely green in colour has a sweet, light, nutty flavour and is fine enough to add to any baking, drink, meal or product. You will not find a better quality anywhere else and this is the best price hemp protein powder available.

Absolutely perfect for your morning smoothie. It is more easily digested and tastes amazing. If you are looking for more proteins in your diet, eating hemp protein powder is a great to do it.

Why hemp protein?
Hemp contains a complete easily digestible vegetable protein with all the essential amino acids. On top of having all of the amino acids, hemp protein also is 90% digestible meaning that only 10% of the protein is passed out of the digestive tract without being digested. While this is not as high as egg, typically with a 97% digestion level, it is a lot higher than soy which typically comes in at 78% or lower. Meat and fish are around the 94% mark. Peanuts have a higher digestibility at around 95% but only 25% of the peanut is actually protein whereas our hemp protein powder is 45%.

Unlike the many refined “isolate” protein powders on the market today which are heated & processed extensively, our hemp protein powder is created by cold-pressing raw non-GMO hemp seeds to separate off some of the oil, next milling them into a fine flour-like powder at low temperatures, then mechanically sieving the powder to remove some of the fibre. The process uses no solvents, fillers or additives. It is kosher, gluten-free, vegan and raw.

The cold-press and cold-milling processes used to create this hemp protein powder make sure that valuable enzymes are protected and the many minerals, vitamins and micronutrients remain intact.

Hemp is a seed & not a nut
With hemp protein, we are able to mechanically separate some of the insoluble fibre which results in the higher protein levels. We are not adding anything, just taking away. No chemicals are used in the separation process, it is a proprietary screening process but because it is mechanical, it is far from perfect and leaves a lot of the fibre still in the product, as much as 20% of protein powder is in fact, fibre. It is also the best kind of fibre, the insoluble kind, the very same they are using wood fibres for, only the fibre in hemp protein is of an excellent quality. In our opinion, there is no better place to get fibre. There is simply no better fibre then hemp fibre.

It's gluten free
Hemp seed is 100% gluten free.

Would you like to lose fat, gain muscle and improve athletic performance?
A rich source of bioavailable protein, Hemp Protein delivers a hefty 22g per 60g serving! Taken in conjunction with a regular exercise program, it can significantly help muscle recovery and growth. And, unlike other protein powders, it naturally contains the perfect balance of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, which have been shown to aid thermogenesis (fat-burning). Many people say that it is very sustaining, eating hemp protein curbs their appetite for hours, leaving them with energy to spare!

Are you a vegan or vegetarian fed up with soy?
Hemp contains all 10 essential amino acids, making it the only balanced, complete source of vegan protein. For those wanting to avoid soy products, hemp protein powder can provide a tasty, high-protein alternative in a very convenient form. Ideal for vegan athletes and growing vegan kids!

Do protein powders upset your stomach?
The greatest proportion of protein in hemp is edestin, the type most easily used by the human body. Edestin is similar to those proteins found in the human body that are pre-cursors to components such as hormones, hemoglobin, enzymes and antibodies. Edestin comprises 65% of the protein in hemp seeds, offering benefits for immunity and communication between cells. Edestin also aids digestion and is considered the backbone of our cells’ DNA. Hemp’s edestin content is the highest in the plant kingdom.

The remainder of hemp’s protein occurs in the form of albumin, which ranks close to edestin in terms of bio-availability and quick conversion to amino acids.The combination of these two types of protein in one superfood seed make hemp protein the closest match for our human protein needs and the gold standard for vegan protein.

Compare this to soy and whey protein powders, which may cause digestive disturbances leading to bloating and flatulence. Soy naturally contains substances that inhibit the enzyme trypsin, interfering with digestion, and even very low-lactose varieties of whey can still contain enough lactose to upset sensitive stomachs. Neither soy nor whey contains Edestin protein. Hemp protein powder is also a healthy source of dietary fibre, chlorophyll, and minerals including magnesium, iron, zinc and potassium. It also supplies powerful antioxidants including alpha-beta, gamma and delta-tocopherol and alpha tocotrienol.

More and more people are realizing the benefits of eating food that is “live,” raw, or unheated, so that its life-giving enzymes are still active. Our hemp protein powder is manufactured using cold-processing technology that keeps the enzymes, natural antioxidants, vitamins and minerals intact. This makes it easier for the body to recognize as “real food,” and so makes it easier to assimilate. It also contains chlorophyll, a natural detoxifier!

Hemp protein is recognized as a complete/balanced vegetarian source of amino acids; EFA’s; natural anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, fibre and chlorophyll. Our hemp protein powder is the perfect high performance vegetarian whole food and may be used in place of other protein supplements. It is easily digested (no enzyme inhibitors) and can be added into any diet.|

FAQ

What is the difference between hemp flakes, hemp flour & hemp protein powder?
Hemp seeds are crushed to produce oil hemp flakes.  The hemp flakes are then ground to make hemp flour. Hemp flour is medium fine consistency. To make hemp protein powder the hemp flour is mechanically sieved to remove some of the insoluble fibre. Hemp protein powder contains 45% protein compared with 30% protein in hemp flakes & hemp flour.  Hemp protein powder is ground much more finely than hemp flour & is lighter in colour & lighter & sweeter in taste.
