THE SUPERMODEL & THE SUPERSMOOTHIE

smoothie charmaine topWhile on assignment in Cape Town this month, Canadian-based supermodel Charmaine San Pedro stumbled upon our Lifematrix Vegan Super Smoothie Essentials – and was smitten.

sanpedrobarsA committed vegan, Charmaine is brimming with ideas on preparing wholesome and exciting meals, and in no time had conjured up a fabulous recipe using “Essentials” to make these healthy protein fudge breakfast bars.

She sent us the recipe on her way back to Canada, lamenting she had not stocked up on “Essentials” before leaving.

The brand-new Ozone Jojoba Topical Gel, like its olive oil sibling, offers excellent anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties but offers more effective absorption and moisturising properties as well as greater stability.

GO GREEN. GO RAW. GO ORGANIC

Capture the power of the sun with Garden of Life’s Perfect Food Raw, packed with 35 nutrient-dense, organically-grown greens, sprouts and vegetable juices.

Imported from the US, Perfect Food Raw is whole-food nutrition, providing naturally-occurring anti-oxidants, amino acids, essential fatty acids, and dozens of phytonutrients. It’s also bursting with prebiotics, probiotics and enzymes to support healthy digestion and nutrient absorption.

What Goes into Perfect Food Raw?

THE EASY WAY TO BALANCE YOUR pH

Excess acidity is a key underlying factor in many chronic ailments, from gout and kidney stones to obesity, arthritic and heart conditions, diabetes and even cancer.

Shifting one’s diet towards more alkaline foods such as green vegetables, increasing one’s intake of pure water and taking mineral supplements are all important strategies for reducing excess acidity and restoring the body’s pH balance.

Health Matrix now makes it even easier to counter excess acidity with our new pH-Plus alkalizing bath soak. pH-Plus combines two of Nature’s most powerful alkaline minerals – magnesium chloride and sodium bicarbonate – with pristine Kalahari crystal salt containing over 60 minerals and trace elements.

Just add 100g (5 scoops) of pH-Plus to a hot bath and soak in it for at least 20 minutes for maximum benefit. The result: a deeply relaxing, alkalizing experience.

Health Matrix pH Plus is exclusively distributed by Absolute Organix. The recommended retail price is R80 inc for a 600g tub, enough for 6 alkalizing baths.



THIS PROTEIN PACKS ANTI-AGEING PUNCH

Purple Protein

 

NOTE: This product has been rebranded and is sold as Lifematrix Purple Protein Powder. Click here for more info

Introducing Health Matrix Purple Protein, a potent blend of bio-active hydrolysed collagen with anti-oxidant rich Amazon acai extract.

Collagen is a key protein in the body that ensures cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin, cartilage and bone and is thus an excellent supplement for people with osteoporosis and arthritic conditions.

In addition, hydrolysed collagen has powerful anti-ageing properties – it helps the skin to remain firm and youthful. It is a true “beauty from within” solution.

Purple Protein uses only the highest quality, clinically trialled Peptan™ collagen, manufactured in France. It is a high purity, natural bioactive product containing more than 90% (dry weight) protein that can be easily taken (simply stir into water or add to a smoothie) and digested by the human body.

The collagen in Purple Protein contains 20 amino-acids, mainly glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. The glycine and proline concentration is 10 to 20 times higher than in other proteins. This very specific composition of amino-acids provides Purple Protein with-functional benefits especially for joint and bone health.

Purple Protein is available in 400g tubs (a month’s supply) exclusively from Absolute Organix. The recommended retail price is R210.00 (inc).



WISHING YOU A NATURALLY SWEET YEAR

Our B Grade Certified Organic Maple Syrup  from Canada is more than just a deliciously pure, all-natural, silky-sweet treat. It’s also a source of minerals such as manganese, zinc, calcium (15 times that of honey) and potassium.

Harvested from red and black maple trees, our organic Maple Syrup also contains malic acid which boosts metabolism and aids with heavy metal removal.

Grade B Maple Syrup (which is richer in minerals because it is harvested later in the season) is a core ingredient of the popular Master Cleanse detox plan.

It’s available in 500g glass bottles.



MORE GOOD STUFF FOR ORGANIC BABIES

New products from Holle, world leader in organic infant nutrition and exclusively distributed in SA by Absolute Organix:

Organic Baby Tea

This herbal infusion has been developed to provide a settling and soothing effect on baby’s tummy. The tea-bags contain a certified organic blend of fennel, aniseed, caraway and chamomile. Unsweetened.

Organic Baby Spelt Rusks

Holle’s spelt rusks are the perfect teething biscuit and snack for babies. Made from Demeter-certified (the highest organic standard) spelt, these unsweetened – but very yummy – rusks can be used by babies from 6 months (adults will love them too!)



THE GOAT’S MILK ALTERNATIVE

Goats MilkParents of lactose-intolerant infants, or infants with cow’s milk protein allergy, often wonder if their baby might benefit by switching to goat’s milk formula.

While goat’s milk is not lactose-free, it does contain less lactose than cow’s milk and its protein content is less allergenic and more easily digested in a baby’s tummy.

Goat’s milk also has a different fat make-up when compared to cow’s milk, which many babies are more easily able to digest.

Holle, Europe’s leading producer of certified organic infant formulas and baby foods, offers a superior quality organic goat’s milk formula (for infants from six months).

The Holle range is exclusively distributed in SA by Absolute Organix.

YOU SHOULD EAT GRASS

grassWe’re often asked about the difference between the various green food powders on the market and how our own product, Garden of Life Perfect Food, stacks up against the competition.

Bottom line is there’s a huge nutritional difference between green foods made from cereal grasses and those made from the juice of these grasses, which might explain why Perfect Food has been the No 1 green food in the US for several years.

In this article, Garden of Life founder Jordan Rubin explores the benefits of green food nutrition and suggests what you should look for in a real green “superfood”.

OMEGA POWER NOW IN SMALLER PACKAGES

We’re launching our Omega oils range in new “mini” 250ml bottles at the Natural and Organic Show at the Northgate Dome in Jo’burg this weekend.

oilsInitial feedback from a group of trial customers is that the mini bottles (half the size of our standard 500ml bottles) will be welcomed by consumers.

All four of Absolute Organix’s liquid omegas – Organic Flax, Omega 3:6:9, Omega Sport and Omega Slim –  are available in the new mini bottles, which offer a number of benefits:

Fresher: We believe the 250ml glass bottle is the optimum size for Omega oils because it keeps the oil fresher. Each time you open a bottle of Omega-3 oil, the delicate essential fats are exposed to oxygen which promotes rancidity. By packaging the oil in smaller bottles, we reduce the number of times the bottle is opened and closed. So the oil stays fresher, healthier.

No wastage: Although customers are encouraged to take Omega oils every day,  many clients do not manage to finish the 500ml bottle within the 8 week use-after-opening date, and thus land up wasting the oil. These are expensive products to waste! With the 250ml bottle, clients are much more likely to finish the bottle well within the use-by period.

Affordable: In this tight economy, Omega oils in smaller bottles just makes more financial sense for cash-strapped consumers. At half the price of the 500ml bottles, the 250ml bottles reduce purchase resistance – and should also encourage sampling.



HOW TO MAKE A TRULY GREAT MULTI-VITAMIN

With so many vitamins made from synthetic chemicals that the body hardly recognises, that tired old criticism from the orthodox medical fraternity that vitamin supplements are nothing but expensive urine is a lot closer to the bone than many would like to admit.

So what does it take to make a truly great multi-vitamin the really delivers on its promise of lifting micro-nutrient levels and strengthening immunity?

Click here to find out how Garden of Life does it with its Living Multi, which concentrates almost 80 organic wholefoods into a nutrient powerhouse that delivers:

OUR ORGANIC TEAS FLOW WITH ENERGY

We’re pleased to introduce a superb new range of imported, premium organic teas, Qi Tea, as well as a locally-produced organic rooibos/greenbosch range from Cedarlife.

The beautifully-packaged Qi (pronounced “chee”) range (25 individually sealed tea bags per box) are refreshing, healthy teas packed with real fruit and herbs.

Qi teas are bought direct from a co-operative of independent farmers, and are certified organic and Fairtrade. Only the very best spring-harvested, high-altitude Chinese teas are selected for the Qi range.

The Cedarlife range is blended from organic rooibos and greenbosch (green rooibos which is an even richer source of anti-oxidants). The range includes Greenbosch & Chamomile, Greenbosch and Peppermint, Greenbosch and Hoodia,  Greenbosch and Buchu, to name a few. Cedarlife teas comes in two pack sizes (20 and 40 teabags).



FLAXTASTIC NEW OIL JOINS OUR RANGE

We’ve just launched an organic Flax Oil of exceptional quality at an excellent price.

It follows the recent installation of a brand-new oil press at our plant in Jo’burg (We are a certified organic processor of nutritional oils by Germany’s BCS Oko).

The new oil complements our range of Omega blends (see image) and indeed forms the basis of these superior products.

We press our flax oil at no higher than 40 degrees Centigrade, the European standard for cold-pressing. To do this, our press turns at a leisurely 20-25 revolutions a minute; the oil drips (very) slowly out of the press, producing a “flaxtastic” health-giving nectar.

Our press is linked directly to a centrifuge which filters the oil by spinning it at high speed (zero heat), producing a golden, nutrient-rich oil of exceptional purity. This enables us to bottle our Fax Oil sooner, so it’s fresher and healthier



THE SMARTFISH ARE BACK IN TOWN

Absolute Organix is pleased to announce the re-introduction of SMARTFISH into SA.

Manufactured by Pharmalogica in Norway, SMARTFISH is a marine oil supplement made from high quality, fresh salmon oil rich in Omega-3s – but without any fishy taste, smell or those repeating fish burps that make youngsters dread taking this vital “brain food”.

The new SMARTFISH sachets contain a potent blend of Omega-3 fatty acids in a smoothe, creamy emulsion sweetened with Xylitol and natural lemon and apricot flavours – it really does taste good.

To prove the great taste of SMARTFISH, we’ll send you a free sample. Please email us: info@absoluteorganix.co.za

From taste to texture to packaging, SMARTFISH has been designed to make it easy for young people to take their daily Omega 3s.

One sachet of SMARTFISH provides a complete daily dose of Omega 3s, delivering 180mg of DHA and 160mg of EPA from molecular-distilled salmon oil. The sachets ensure freshness and potency of the delicate Omega 3 oils by excluding oxygen and light.

Smartfish is available in tubs of 30 sachets.



OMEGA PURE EVEN PURER

Ever wondered where krill and then fish get their Omega-3s from? Well, it all starts with micro-algae, the original source of these health-giving essential fatty acids.

Absolute Organix Omega Pure is the only Omega-3 supplement containing the long chain Omega-3s, DHA and EPA, derived from micro-algae – and a new enhanced formulation of Omega Pure is now available.

Improvements in the cold extraction process have enabled our partners to not only increase the concentration of Essential Fats but also to reduce the dosage from 3 to 2 capsules. The new formulation delivers 400mg of ultra-pure DHA (87.5%) and EPA.

Omega Pure is an excellent source of DHA for pregnant and breast-feeding mothers because the algae from which the oil is extracted have been grown under pristine conditions in ponds completely free of any ocean contaminants like mercury and dioxins.

The cold-extraction of the oil means that the nutrient quality and bio-availability of the Essential Fats in Omega Pure is of the highest order.

Omega Pure is also a perfect source of DHA/EPA for Vegans/vegetarians.

Available in glass bottles of 60 vegecaps (a month’s supply).

Meantime, demand for our protein powder has been growing fast and we’ve now introduced a 1kg tub in addition to the original 400g pack.

Soy-free, gluten-free and dairy-free, it’s an easy to digest hypoallergenic protein source for vegetarians/vegans as others with dietary restrictions. It’s also a great protein source for athletes, even those hard-core meat-eaters and whey addicts!

The new 1kg tub of Raw Vegan Protein is excellent value at a recommended retail price of R250 incl – the price per gram is approx 20% less than the 400g tub.

The most feared natural medicine?

Used successfully by doctors for a century, Iodine is an effective and safe natural antibiotic, a powerful anti-cancer (especially breast and prostate) agent, and a potent heavy metal detox tool. There is growing evidence that Iodine deficiency is increasing and is linked to a number of chronic diseases like diabetes and obesity, as well as certain heart ailments. Despite this the medical establishment today fears Iodine and shuns it as downright dangerous. However,  a small group of medical specialists  believe that Iodine should return to its rightful place in the natural medicine chest.

Our Lugol’s Iodine solution is now available.

Click here to read Bruce Cohen’s blog on why Iodine deserves a fresh look.



RAW PROTEIN POWER

NEW PRODUCT

Absolute Organix’s new Raw Vegan Protein (RVP) powder is a true Superfood for the 21st Century. It’s made from GMO-free organic sprouted brown rice, and what’s in the tub is 80% pure protein. It’s silky smooth with an amino acid profile close to mother’s milk and is ideal for vegetarians and those with dairy and gluten allergies or other dietary restrictions.

Our rice protein is made using an all-natural process of fermentation, filtration and enzymatic processing that consumes the fats and carbohydrates in the rice and leaves just the protein behind (plus a little fibre).

With over 12g of protein per 15g serving, Absolute Organix Raw Vegan Protein has a superior amino acid profile – it contains all nine essential amino acids – making it an excellent alternative to whey and soy proteins.

Good fats are great fat-burners

FEATURED PRODUCT

It’s amazing how many people still believe that fat makes you fat. They lump together all fats in the “nasty food” category, ignoring how important Essential Fatty Acids, especially Omega-3s, are in helping people reach and maintain normal weight.

Leading US nutritionist and author Anne Louise Gittleman neatly sums it up:

“Putting Essential Fats back into the diet works to increase
metabolic rate and improve the entire system of energy production.
With this increase in metabolism, weight loss is not only possible, it’s inevitable.
Blood sugar levels are balanced and food cravings become a thing of the past.”

Based on research from McGill University in Canada, Absolute Organix Omega Slim has been specially formulated for weight-loss, exploiting the synergistic effects of a number of health-giving oils.

Certified organic, cold-pressed, extra virgin oils – flax, pumpkin, cranberry, sesame, sunflower and evening primrose, rich in all Essential Fatty Acids, especially Omega-3 (the same high quality oils that go into our Omega 3:6:9 blend).

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) extracted from coconut oils, clinically proven to assist with weight loss and also deliver instant energy without affecting blood sugar levels.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), an oil fraction from the safflower plant, which has been shown to promote lean muscle development and reduce fat storage.

Omega Slim is endorsed by SureSlim, South Africa’s leading weight management and wellness programme.

Losing weight – and keeping the kilos off over a sustained period – is not about dieting, it’s about healthy eating.
