Ingredient EducationEach Vegan capsule contains 300 mg. Certified Organic Ceremonial Grade Matcha and 300 mg. Certified Organic and Fair trade Turmeric.
TURMERIC ROOT - is a rhizome related to ginger root that has been a staple of both traditional Chinese and Indian medicine and diet for thousands of years. It contains a wide range of antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial, anti fungal, anticarcinogenic, antimutagenic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also loaded with many healthy nutrients such as protein, dietary fiber, niacin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, potassium, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and zinc.
MATCHA - is the oldest variety of shade grown Green Tea (shade grown to keep the plant’s energies focused on foliage, rather than producing buds) It has been de-veined, de-stemmed, lightly blanched, dried at low temperature, then stone-ground into an extremely fine powder within pharmaceutical-grade chambers to prevent oxidation. 100% Certified Organic premuim ceremonial grade Matcha Green Tea is strong, fresh and crisp, vibrant with vegetal notes, and loaded with unique Green Tea anti-oxidants. It has one of the highest amounts of O.R.A.C units (antioxidants) per gram since the most precious parts of the Tea leaf are consumed. Thus, by virtue of “eating” the Tea leaves (solubles and insolubles) rather than just drinking the water from it, one consumes 10 to 15 times the nutrients found in regular Green Teas.
We hope that you will enjoy increased cognitive function, changes in Alpha brain wave activity making you feel more calm, and more alert, and experience less discomfort from inflammation as these powerful anti-inflammatories get to work in your body. Before consuming, please consult with your health care provider to be sure that it is O.K to add Green Tea or Turmeric root to your diet. Your pharmacist could also be a great resource to let you know if there are any known contraindications/ drug interactions/ side effects with herbs and any medications you might be already taking.
Proudly made in the U.S.A
We are extremely diligent about safety and purity here. All ingredients are tested at time of harvest, then again before encapsulation here on the East Coast of the U.S.A for pesticide residue, heavy metals, radiation, bacteria, molds, or anything harmful. We are big consumers of our products, to, so want them to be excellent. The history is that the majority of our products were created initially back in 2004 to help manage symptoms of auto-immune disease that had flared up shortly after I'd given birth to our first son. My immune system was understandably stressed from childbirth and the lack of sleep as we adjusted to life with a newborn.
The point is...we didn't get into this striving to be big, just the very best- for all of us.
Thank you for your "tea-evangelism" and support of this organic farm and our farm family the past 15 years.
