What the heck is quercetin?
Quercetin belongs to a group of plant pigments called flavonoids that give many fruits, flowers, and vegetables their color.
Flavonoids, such as quercetin, are antioxidants -- they scavenge damaging particles in the body known as free radicals, which damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death. They also help keep LDL ("bad") cholesterol from being damaged, which scientists think may contribute to heart disease. In test tubes, quercetin has strong antioxidant properties, but researchers aren't sure whether taking quercetin (and many other antioxidants) has the same effects inside the body.
Quercetin is sometimes promoted to help prevent or treat different types of cancer. It has also been promoted to help with the symptoms of chronic prostatitis (swelling of the prostate gland) and to relieve some of the neurologic complications of diabetes.
Quercetin acts like an antihistamine and an anti-inflammatory, and may help protect against heart disease and cancer. Quercetin can also help stabilize the cells that release histamine in the body and thereby have an anti-inflammatory effect.So come on in and try out our Innate brand Quercetin.

Are you Thanksgiving Menu Planning? Do you need a cranberry sauce recipe? Well then here you go....
From the lovely, Raw Food Celebrations by Nomi Shannon and Sheryl Duruz
Preparation 20 min.
Yields 8-10 Servings
Cranberries need plenty of aded sweetness to mellow their tartness; for this we rely on wholesome dates and juicy oranges. This is an amazingly simple recipe to prepare, and it is alway a big hit, even with those who are used to more conventional holiday fare. Another bonus is that it can be made two to three days in advance.
1 teaspoon orange zest (opitional)
1 package (12 ounces) fresh cranberries, rinsed well well and drained
4 pitted dates, or more as needed
If using, remove the orange zest before juicing the oranges. Transfer the orange zest, orange juice, and all the remaining ingredients to a blender and process just until chunky. Taste and blend in more dates, one at a time, if additional sweetness is needed.
If you prefer, an equal amount of frozen cranberries may be used instead of fresh cranberries. Thaw them before processing.
This isn't a crazy stand in line for hours and wait in the cold and listen to people telling you they are gonna do something when indeed they aren't.
You aren't going to have to listen to people not answer your sincere questions.
In fact you get to VOTE FOR US!! YAY!

It's that time of year to get your pumpkin seed fix on!
Raw pumpkin seeds provide a rich source of fiber, a type of carbohydrate that prevents constipation and benefits digestive health. The seeds also boost your intake of protein -- each ounce of seeds provides almost 9 grams of the nutrient. You also increase your mineral intake when you eat pepitas. The seeds contain iron, a mineral important to red blood cell function, as well as potassium, phosphorus, zinc and magnesium. Because fiber, protein and minerals are not destroyed by roasting, these nutrients are found in roughly equal amounts in both raw and roasted pumpkin seeds.
Other Amazing reasons to eat them seeds!
They’re high in the sleep-enhancing amino acid tryptophan that converts to serotonin in your body and helps ensure a good night’s sleep;
They’re also high in the heart-healing mineral magnesium, which is also Nature’s natural relaxant;
High in Omega 3s, pumpkin seed oil has been shown in studies to reduce the incidence of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH)—a condition in which the prostate gland becomes enlarged.
Pumpkin seeds are also high in the prostate-protecting mineral zinc, making these seeds the ultimate snack for men’s health.
They’re a good source of blood-building and energy-boosting iron.
Their phytosterol compounds are believed to lower cholesterol levels.
It's that time of year to add those yummy tart cranberries into your diet. Need a reason ok fine heres like a gazillion!
Cranberries have vitamin C and fiber, and are only 45 calories per cup. In disease-fighting antioxidants, cranberries outrank nearly every fruit and vegetable--including strawberries, spinach, broccoli, red grapes, apples, raspberries, and cherries.
One cup of whole cranberries has 8,983 total antioxidant capacity. Only blueberries can top that: Wild varieties have 13,427; cultivated blueberries have 9,019.
That's not enough? Fine
Fights Cancers!Laboratory studies have shown that cranberry extracts can prevent breast cancer cells from multiplying. Other studies showed that cranberries helped to inhibit the development of cancerous cells in lab animals. Other cancers that may be prevented by using cranberries are colon, prostate and lung.
Fights Heart Disease! Cranberries are very good for the heart in several different ways. They help to lower the bad cholesterol levels which can clog the arterial walls. They also help to prevent plaque from forming on the arterial walls, which can lead to atherosclerosis, (the hardening of the arteries). As a result, your chances of a stroke are reduced, and if you have suffered from a stroke, cranberries can help you to recover from it.
Helps Kidney and Bladder Problems! Cranberries contain citric acid and other nutrients that can prevent kidney stones, and other kidney and bladder problems.Anti-Aging Properties! The antioxidants contained in cranberries will help your body to get rid of all the free radicals which contribute to the aging process. They will not only help your skin to look young, but your internal organs will also be able to function longer without problems.

•Milk, when boiled with dates, become a very nutritious and invigorating drink for children and adults, especially during convalescence.
•The nicotinic content in dates makes them an excellent cure for intestinal disturbances.
•Regular consumption of dates has been found to check the growth of pathological organisms and help in the growth of friendly bacteria in the intestines.
•Being a laxative food, dates have been found to be beneficial for those suffering from constipation.
•For alcoholic intoxication, drinking water, in which fresh dates have been rubbed or soaked, is said to be quite effective.
•Studies have shown that consumption of dates, soaked overnight and crushed, is good for those who have a weak heart.
•It has been seen that dates serve as a tonic for improving sex stamina as well as sterility due to functional disorders.
•Researches have revealed that dates are effective in preventing abdominal cancer.
•Dates have a tonic effect and thus, hold value as medicines.

It actually may be a trick and a treat tied into one! Give out a way better treat than any other kid on the block is gonna get!
The key to a raw dessert is Liquid chocolate! Once you get that you can go anywhere!
Here is the easy way, get coconut oil or cacao butter, cacao powder and any type of sweetner you like stevia, yacon, mesquite, agave or lucuma.
1 cup of liquid coconut oil or liquid cacao butter (to liquify the butter shave off a little but in a bowl above hot water and let it melt)
1/2 cup cacao powder
1 tablespoon of sweetner of your choice (go more on this or less up to you). I do 1 tablespoon of mesquite and 1/2 tablespoon of stevia
Whisk it all together and decide what you are going to do with this magical goodness. You can place fresh fruit or dried fruit on parchment paper drizzle and let it set in the fridge. You could put in a mold and make a chocolate bar in shape of halloween fun. A trick I did last halloween, took some small cupcake foils poured in the chocolate, scooped a little almond butter and poured more chocolate on top but in fridge. Almond butter cup made simple!
Happy creating and most of all Happy Healthy Halloween!
I love Fall for the veggies alone! Not kidding. I don't like the idea of it getting cold but I do love Squash, pumpkins, apples and all the other glorious Fall Veggies.
My Fav is Butternut Squash, it is a great source of vitamin A and C, and also contains significant quantities of potassium, iron, magnesium and beta carotene!
Any of the squash family can be used for "Pasta" substitutes but the butternut flavor is just to killer to not use as a spaghetti. Use a sprializer and make lovely little strings of butternut pasta and now decide what you want for a sauce. A creamy yummy choice I go with this is raw tahini or pumpkin seed butter, olive oil, smoked Yakima sea salt and a little of our Anti Plague for spice. Add any extra veggies if you want to really make it a meal. Dehydrate the seeds for a crunchy topping!

CELLFOOD SAM-e (pronounced sammy) is a significant achievement in nutritional chemistry. NuScience Corporation is the first and only laboratory in America to liquefy and hold in a stable colloidal suspension the breakthrough wonder component S-adenosyl methionine and combine it with the unparalleled delivery system of Cellfood. The result is an extraordinary and unique nutritional supplement able to provide multiple benefits for multiple needs:
Mood enhancement – CELLFOOD SAM-e functions by donating its methyl group to CNS receptors which increases the activity and production of the mood-boosting neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, and nerepinephrine (serotonin is the neurotransmitter that drugs like Prozac elevate).
Joint health – CELLFOOD SAM-e supports sulfate groups’ absorption into glycoproteins, which help maintain cartilage and protect joints. Cysteine and glutathione are by-products of this absorption process and have potent inflammation and pain reducing properties. Nearly 14 million Americans that suffer from chronic pain and inflammation use drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen (Tylenol). In arthritis strength dosages, these nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID's) have devastating side effects. Over 100,000 Americans are hospitalized annually from NSAID induced ulcers and more than 16,000 die. In a dozen clinical trails with more than 22,000 patients, researchers found SAM-e as effective as pharmaceutical treatments for pain and inflammation, without any signs of digestive tract damage, sexual dysfunction, dry mouth, or nausea.
Liver health - In the liver, CELLFOOD SAM-e supports GSH production and uptake, which is mainly responsible for removing dangerous toxins from the body. Because of the liver's continuous battle against toxins, adequate concentrations of glutathione are crucial to survival. Damage occurs when the liver is so overwhelmed by toxins that it cannot produce enough glutathione. Part of that concentration burden falls to SAM-e, which is a necessary component of glutathione’s creation.
Ingredients - CELLFOOD SAM-e is made from all-natural, plant-based organic substances. CELLFOOD SAM-e contains no alcohol, glucose, yeast, or gluten. CELLFOOD SAM-e does not contain any ingredients that are on the “list of banned substances” for professional and amateur athletic competitions and associations. CELLFOOD SAM-e is non-addictive, non-invasive, and completely non-toxic.
CELLFOOD DNA • RNA is the world’s first cellular
regenerating formula combining nucleic acid
(the essential building block on DNA and RNA), Adenosine Triphosphate
(ATP - the master energy
molecule), methyl groups (regulators and programmers of the aging
process), and Cellfood.
Anti-aging - Clinical research indicates that biological aging is regulated and programmed by the gradual loss of specific DNA markers known as methyl groups. At the age of 25, most of us have already lost 10% of our DNA methyl groups. When there is a 40% loss, degenerative death typically occurs. Longevity studies have shown that no single therapeutic method has increased lifespan more than nucleic acid (DNA RNA) supplementation. CELLFOOD DNA • RNA provides the most important nutrient factors for improving DNA methylation, which slows or stops the loss of methyl groups.
The H factor - Homocysteine is a toxic amino acid byproduct that accumulates in the bloodstream and tends to block arterial pathways. High levels of homocysteine may be an indicator of cardiac risk and has been linked to many diseases. A major double blind, placebo controlled study was recently conducted to study the effects of the methylation cofactors found in CELLFOOD DNA • RNA on homocysteine reduction and other important metabolic factors. The CELLFOOD DNA • RNA components (which also include Trimethylglycine) were shown to significantly reduce homocysteine levels by up to 44% - indicating an enhanced ability to protect and repair critical DNA and lower cardiac risk.
ATP - CELLFOOD DNA • RNA provides one of the most important nucleic acid derivatives to the human body, adenosine triphosphate. ATP is considered the master energy molecule and the fuel for cellular function. When a glucose molecule breaks down without oxygen it delivers only 2 molecules of ATP, wasting almost 95% of the potential energy. When combined with the oxygen from CELLFOOD, each glucose molecule delivers a full 36 molecules of ATP. The end result is a dramatic increase in cellular energy.
Finally, CELLFOOD DNA • RNA utilizes another unique and advanced technology known as Photo Acoustic Resonance. This patented laser technology process pre-treats and tunes each individual nutrient by reshaping distorted molecule structures so that they can be more easily absorbed and assimilated by cell receptors.
