Celebrate Hemp History Week with Total Health Foods

 


Every day, more and more Americans discover the benefits of hemp. This ever-expanding market includes healthy food and body care products, as well as eco-friendly textiles, clothing, auto parts, and building materials. But despite hemp's growing popularity, an outdated and misguided Federal policy – created in the 1930s – currently prevents U.S. farmers from growing this nutritious, versatile, and eco-friendly crop.

 

It is time for Federal policy on industrial hemp to reflect today's reality and ensure a better tomorrow for America 's families and farmers, the economy and our planet.
As more Americans recognize the health and environmental benefits of hemp products, hemp farming promises job creation and economic opportunity for farmers and manufacturers, and ensures that nutritious foods are more accessible and affordable for consumers. In turn this means healthier lifestyles, a stronger economy, and a more sustainable world.
Now in its fourth year, Hemp History Week is a nation-wide education campaign and marketing program that seeks to renew strong support for hemp farming in the U.S. while raising awareness about the benefits of hemp products

Come to Total Health Foods in Downtown Wyandotte during Hemp History week.  We will have discounts on Cousin Mary Jane Hemp food products!

Digestive Enzymes:

The benefits of digestive enzymes include weight loss, better digestion and assimilation of nutrients, and more! The human body produces digestive enzymes that break down the food you eat into nutrients. The nutrients are then absorbed into your body through the small intestine. As we age, our bodies naturally start to produce fewer digestive enzymes… which can cause discomforts such as bloating, gas and indigestion. When you are lacking all the enzymes you need, your body doesn't digest properly, and as a result, your body doesn’t absorb the nutrients it needs.

 

If you experience bloating, gas, constipation, heartburn, acid reflux, low energy, or irritable bowel syndrome, you may be lacking digestive enzymes. Digestive enzyme supplements are completely natural and aid in breaking down your food so you can properly absorb the nutrients. By simply taking a digestive enzyme with every meal, you can avoid symptoms like bloating, acid reflux and gas!

 

Probiotics:

The term probiotic is derived from Greek, and literally means "for life." It's used to describe the good bacteria that inhabit the human intestinal tract.There are many health benefits to probiotics. Probiotics promote proper intestinal environment (also known as "gut flora"), and stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and boost the immune system. By strengthening this important part of the digestive system, probiotics have been shown to help with the following conditions:
  • Antibiotic-induced diarrheaThank you for reading our blog!
  • Vaginal yeast infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Eczema
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Food Allergies
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crohn's disease
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
Antibiotics are great at what they are meant to do, kill bacteria. The problem is that they kill all the good bacteria in our intestinal tract. After taking an antibiotic, it is extremely important to replenish that killed bacteria with a probiotic. Without good bacteria in the gut, the immune system is compromised, resulting in a wide variety of health issues.
You can get probiotics in supplement form or in fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kombucha, and kefir… all of which we carry at Total Health Foods! Stop in today and make your gut happy.
 

Ginger:

Ginger is an herb that has a fiery, pungent taste. It’s full of vitamins and minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, selenium and sodium, vitamins C, E and B6. It also contains protein, fiber and essential oils.One of gingers most common uses is for aiding in digestion and soothing the digestive tract. It assists in the digestion of fats and proteins. Ginger improves appetite and is a natural digestive aid. It can be used to relieve gas, bloating, and stabilize an upset stomach. The herb can prevent symptoms associated with motion sickness. It can reduce cold sweats, dizziness, nausea and vomiting. It has also useful to help deal with morning sickness during pregnancy. You may use the whole ginger root in cooking, or you can take a ginger supplement such as a ginger chew, tea or capsuled herb.

Sun Butter is an allergy friendly alternative.

Why pick an alternative?

Sun butter is a great alternative to peanut butter. It’s a seed butter made from roasted sunflower seeds and it’s 100% nut and gluten free… perfect for kids who suffer from many food allergies. This is also great alternative and a respectful way for your child to still enjoy his "PB&J" when there may be a child in their classroom with peanut or tree nut allergies.

Is it nutritious?

Yes! High in vitamin E, protein, iron, zinc and magnesium, it outshines the average peanut butter! It tastes similar to peanut butter; some even say it’s better! It comes in creamy and crunchy. Sun butter can be added in place of peanut butter in any recipe.

Where can I get Sun Butter?

Stop by Total Health Foods today to pick up a jar, or ask the juice bar to add some to your smoothie! It tastes great in the Mud Slide Madness!
