Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) looks like a grain and tastes like a grain but isn’t one. Instead, it is a relative of rhubarb, and because it is gluten free, it is an ideal food for those allergic to the gluten in wheat and other true grains.

Nutritionally, buckwheat provides vitamins B1 and B2, the minerals potassium, magnesium, phosphate and iron (buckwheat contains more iron than cereal grains; and nearly twice the amount of the amino acid lysine found in rice. Buckwheat bran (farinetta) contains rutin, a flavonoid known to reduce cholesterol, lower blood pressure and maintain the strength and flexibility of capillaries.

A recently discovered compound in buckwheat called fagopyritol seems to have potential to help manage type II diabetes. A 1995 study from the Johns Hopkins Medical Institute showed that eating 30 grams of buckwheat daily can lower blood pressure. And because buckwheat grain is digested more slowly than other carbohydrates it can leave you feeling full longer and improve glucose tolerance among the carbohydrate sensitive.

Broccoli Sprouting Seed Cert. Organic (Brassica oleracea cymosa) 1 lb: C

This is Starwest’s nitrogen-flushed double wall silverfoil pack. Broccoli sprouts are tiny three-day-old plants that resemble alfalfa sprouts and have a peppery flavor. Broccoli sprouts appear to even help prevent stomach cancer.

‘Broccoli and broccoli sprouts kill a bacterium which a lot of us actually have,’ Jed W. Fahey of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine told CBS Radio News. ‘It doesn’t make most of us sick, but some of us it can give ulcers to and eventually lead to stomach cancer.’

In laboratory tests the chemical sulforaphane killed helicobacter pylori, a bacteria that causes stomach ulcers and often fatal stomach cancers. ‘Sulforaphane does protect against tumors or cancer at multiple organ sites in many animal models,’ said Fahey. ‘It looks very much like it is also protective in humans.’ And the good news is there appears to be enough of it in broccoli sprouts and some varieties of broccoli to benefit people who eat the vegetables. ‘The levels were well within the range that you would expect to achieve by eating a serving of broccoli,’ Fahey said. ‘I feel quite comfortable suggesting people eat more fruits and vegetables, specifically cruciferous vegetables, specifically broccoli,’ Fahey said. ‘We know it’s safe and healthy…we know sulforaphane is effective in protecting against cancers.’

Dr. Paul Talalay, a co-researcher at Johns Hopkins, had previously reported sulforaphane is an effective anticancer agent and the new studies extended that work to the bacteria that causes stomach cancer and ulcers.

Barley Grass also gives increased strength and muscle expansion to those who work out regularly with weights. Barley Grass is a whole food supplement. Dehydrated whole leaf Barley Grass includes the natural juice and fiber found in fresh Barley Grass. Green barley leaves contain a wide spectrum of amino acids, enzymes, vitamins and minerals. Among the vitamins are beta carotene and five B vitamins, including vitamin B12 (which is often thought to come only from animal sources). Barley grass also contains folic acid and the antioxidant vitamins C and E. Minerals include calcium, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus. A recent laboratory analysis on green barley grass has turned up traces of more than 70 other minerals.

It’s a whole food loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, beta-carotene, calcium, chlorophyll, fiber and many more nutrients your body needs every day. Barley grass contains eighteen amino acids, including the eight essential ones—that is, the amino acids that we must get from our diet. The body cannot produce them itself. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are the major constituents of every cell and body fluid (except urine and bile) and are thus necessary for the continual cell building, cell regeneration, and energy production that we need for life.

An added benefit of the green barley leaf proteins is that they are polypeptides; smaller proteins that can be directly absorbed by the blood, where they promote cell metabolism (the chemical changes that we need to live) and neutralize substances that are bad for our health. Green barley leaves contain a multitude enzymes. Enzymes are the catalysts for the body’s essential chemical reactions and are responsible for our digestive processes, for providing cellular energy, and for antioxidant effects. Barley Grass also contains chlorophyll. Chlorophyll has been studied for its potential as a deodorant, in stimulating tissue growth, and in stimulating red blood cells in connection with blood supply.






Chia Sprouting Seed (Salvia hispanica) 1 lb: C

This is Starwest’s nitrogen-flushed double wall silverfoil pack. Chia is a tasty and nutritious food and makes a refreshing drink.

They are rich in protein as well as vitamin A, the vitamin B complex, vitamin C and vitamin E, as well as various minerals and enzymes. The fresh crunch they add to your salads and sandwiches cannot be beaten. Chia seeds can also be roasted and ground, or mixed with corn and cooked in water to make a gruel called alole that is flavored with honey, chilies, or pimento. Chia seeds infused with water and flavored with lime juice make a mucilaginous drink that is still called ‘chia fresca’ in modern-day Mexico. It is said that one tablespoon can sustain a person for 24 hours. Chia was the basic survival ration of Aztec warriors. In Aztec medicine chia was used to stimulate saliva and to relieve joint pain and sore skin. Chia is an excellent source of soluble and insoluble fiber that can absorb sterols. When mixed with amaranth or oats, the amino acid profile balances out, offering twice as much protein as other grains. The fibers aid in intestinal healing and absorption of nutrients.

Chia’s water-soluble fibers, mucilages, cause it to form a gelatin when immersed in water for 30 minutes. Researchers believe this same gel-forming phenomenon takes place in the stomach, creating a physical barrier between carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down, thus slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar. In addition to the obvious benefits for diabetics, this slowing of sugar conversion aids endurance. The chia’s hydrophilic colloidal properties aid the digestion of any foods contributing to a sour stomach.
