Glucomannan is a dietary fibre extracted from the konjac root, also known as the Asian devil’s tongue. Studies show that glucomannan has many positive health effects. These special dietary fibers support positive blood fat values and support the balance of the “bad” LDL cholesterol and dangerous triglyceride level in the blood. In addition, glucomannan stimulates the metabolism, stabilizes blood sugar, ensures early and long-lasting satiety and can thus help with weight loss. Even the EFSA, the “European Food Safety Authority”, declared in 2010 that glucomannan can help reduce body weight in overweight people.
Among the African peoples almost every part of the baobab tree is used. The fruits of the magic tree are real superfoods, rich in vitamin C, iron, antioxidative polyphenols and many other vital substances. The fruits, seeds and leaves of the baobab are said to help with infectious diseases and inflammations of the gastrointestinal tract. In addition, the seeds of the baobab fruit are a popular natural remedy for strengthening the heart and liver. But also flowers, bark and roots are said to have healing powers. The flower essences of the baobab are said to help with arthrosis and arthritis, for example.
Very few people know exactly how important vitamin K is. It controls blood clotting, activates bone formation and supports even the DNA. Vitamin K1 is mainly found in the leaves of various green plants. Vitamin K also supports healthy arteries. The effect of vitamin K in prevention is closely related to vitamin D. Both work hand in hand to protect the blood vessels from calcification. Therefore, it is important to get both through food, sunlight or good supplements and thus raise the level of health in a natural way.
Quinoa is perhaps one of the best vegetable protein sources in the world. The unique thing about quinoa is that the small grains contain all nine essential amino acids, which is very unusual for a plant-based food. The mineral richness of quinoa is far superior to that of common grains. In addition, the delicious Inca grain is gluten-free and can therefore be eaten without hesitation if you have cereal intolerances.
Turmeric, also known as curcuma, is a plant from the ginger family and has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. A detoxifying effect has also been observed. For thousands of years turmeric has been used in Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic recipes. In recent years, numerous studies have been published confirming what has long been known in ancient folk medicine: turmeric has unexpectedly many healing properties and effects.
Vegetable proteins are in no way inferior to animal proteins, e.g. muscle building works just as well with vegetable proteins. But who wants proteins that only make muscles grow? A really good protein does much more for your health. It activates fat burning, supplies vital substances, increases performance and initiates healing processes of the cells. This is exactly what our plant protein powders from sunflower seeds, rice protein concentrates, sweet lupine flour, hemp seeds and pumpkin seeds are capable of.
A healthy intestine ensures a healthy digestion and a strong immune system. The friendly intestinal bacteria, also called probiotics, primarily digest, but also produce enzymes and even vitamins. Probiotics are the natural antagonists of putrefactive bacteria and keep the intestinal environment in balance. A healthy intestinal flora produces among other things vitamin B12, which is important for blood formation and nerve health. Due to an unbalanced intestinal flora, more and more people suffer from vitamin B12 deficiency. The assertion that sufficient vitamin B12 can only be obtained from meat or animal sources is outdated. The pure value shake contains all strains: Lactobacillus rhamnosus, paracasei, bulgaricus, casei, plantarum, crispatus, acidophilus, helveticus, salivarius, reuteri, Lactobacillus gasseri and Lactococcus lactis.
