Surf & Turf is a unique blend of organic ingredients from the sea and soil that are rich in nutrients, including various antioxidants, iodine, enzymes, phyto-chemicals, minerals and vitamins to offer complete nourishment and multiple potential health benefits for everyone.
From The Sea
The ingredients from the sea include Seagreens® (Ascophyllum nodosum and Fucus vesiculous), chlorella and spirulina, all rich sources of amino acids, chlorophyll, iodine, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that may help support numerous bodily systems. The iodine in seaweeds can help with cognitive function, immunity, body alkanising and with maintaining the normal functioning of the nervous system, metabolism and thyroid. A recent study by Newcastle University found that Seagreens® have a higher antioxidant level available in the gut after digestive than some fruit and vegetables, and could also be more effective free radical scavengers than green teas. Seaweeds can also help support a healthy gut due to their prebiotic effect and ability to assist in nutrient absorption and the secretion of digestive enzymes.
From the Earth
The organic soil ingredients; artichoke, cayenne, green tea and rhubarb are all excellent sources of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and phyto-nutrients that could help support efficient digestion, the circulatory system, antioxidant levels, bone and heart health and liver function.
This superb formula consists of:
Seagreens® Organic Ascophyllum Nodosum – also known as, Norwegian kelp, knotted wrack, rockweed, knotted kelp, knotted wrack or egg wrack. This seaweed is sourced from the Scottish Outer Hebrides, with typically 700mcg iodine per 1g, this common brown algae has the highest iodine levels of all the seaweed species. Rich in micro-nutrients (copper, iron, manganese and zinc) and macro-nutrients (calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, nitrogen, potassium and sulpher), this seaweed is also a good source of beneficial amino acids, proteins, mannitol, cytokinins, betaines, organic acids, auxin-like gibberellins and polysaccharides.
Seagreens® Organic Fucus vesiculosus – more commonly known as bladderwrack and discovered in 1811 as the original source of iodine, this seaweed is also rich in algin, beta-carotene, potassium, bromine, volatile oils, mucilage, mannitol and zeaxanthin.
Organic Chlorella – containing more chlorophyll than many known foods, this marine algae is also a rich source of 19 amino acids (including 8 essential amino acids), beta-carotene, calcium, selenium, iron, zinc and more vitamin B12 than liver. Because of its fiberous nature, chlorella can help support the health of the digestive tract, and due to its ability to bind with heavy metals and pesticides that can accumulate in the body, it can help with detoxification. Chlorella’s organ and bowel cleansing action, liver protection and high nutrient content may help keep the immune system strong and the blood free from impurities.
Organic Spirulina – containing 18 amino acids (including 8 essential amino acids), this blue-green algae is also a rich source of vitamin E, F factor (GLA), beta-carotene and iron. Due to its high protein content, typically 100g provides 50-70% protein, and exceptional levels of vitamin B12, spirulina is also of particular interest to vegans and vegetarians.
Organic Cayenne – the powder from these bright red peppers supports a healthy digestion, appetite and circulatory system.
Organic Green tea (Camellia thea) – a rich source of catechin polyphenols, active compounds with several potential health benefits, recent research has found that green tea polyphenols have a stronger antioxidant action than two of the most powerful known antioxidants vitamin C and E. Green tea may also help with weight management.
Organic Rhubarb – the roots and rhizomes contain minerals, vitamins, phyto-nutrients, dietary fibre, tannins, anthraquinones and poly-phenolic antioxidants. Rhubarb stalks are rich in minerals (calcium, phosphorus, copper, potassium and iron), vitamin K and B-complex vitamins (vitamin B-6, niacin, thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and folates).
Organic Artichoke– containing cynarin, closely related to milk thistle, artichoke is frequently used in alternative therapies to help support the digestive system, as well as liver and heart health.
