    Colostrum – specifically bovine colostrum – is the first milk that a mother provides to her newborn calf. In fact, all female mammals produce colostrum, but that of the bovine variety is often taken as a supplement by athletes and others because of its immune-boosting properties. However, it’s important that the product comes from only the first milkings as this milk contains a host of beneficial immune factors called proline-rich polypeptides, which include:

    Cytokines for stimulating an under-active immune system

    Immunoglobulin, which helps repair muscles

    Lactoferrin – an iron-binding protein that helps release iron into the red blood cells and also deprives bacteria of the iron it needs to reproduce

    Many others

    Colostrum also contains insulin-like growth factors which restore muscles and build immune support, as well as a host of nutritional components like vitamins, minerals, essential oils and amino acids.

    If you’re looking for a bovine colostrum supplement to boost your immune system and regulate your intestinal health, check this deal out on Gluten-Free Saver and save $7.50 on Symbiotics Colostrum Plus. Get this amazing product delivered straight to your door!

  • Why Gluten Free Food Can Be Pricey

    Posted on April 15, 2016 by Cathy Pearson

    Written by our current deal provider: Hey Gluten Free!
    Every year it gets a little easier to find gluten free products to replace your gluten-filled favorites. While the options are available and medically necessary for many people, you can plan to pay anywhere from 200-400% more just for the lack of gluten. What gives? Why are these products so expensive?
    Ingredients
    There are roughly 46 million acres dedicated to wheat each year in the United States and that wheat can be processed in large amounts without much help from human hands. With both a high yield and a high demand, prices remain low. On the other hand, gluten free products require a wide variety of flours and other ingredients like rice, potatoes, buckwheat and xanthan gum. These aren’t created specifically for everyday products the way that wheat is. They’re produced on a much smaller scale because most people don’t use those ingredients as often as wheat. The ingredients are just the beginning of high priced gluten free products, however.
    Safe Production
    In order to guarantee that expensive gluten free ingredients are turned into safe gluten free products, those products must be produced in a facility that doesn’t process any gluten-containing grains. There are strict cleaning procedures and special equipment is often necessary. There’s also more documentation required. All of these necessary steps help reduce the risk of cross contamination but they come at a price. Since there is a smaller demand for gluten free foods, only a limited number of products can be made in these facilities, and that increases the cost of production.
    Certification and Labeling
    Third party written certification must be obtained in order to certify foods gluten free after gluten free items are tested to contain less than 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten. The strict guidelines that must be met in order to label and certify something gluten free require more time and money, and those costs are passed down to us consumers.
    Demand
    Whether you eat gluten free for medical reasons or you’ve just decided that a gluten free lifestyle is right for you, you’re part of the growing demand for gluten free products. While the market has grown tremendously over the last few years, it’s still a very small market and it’s also very specific. Larger companies are just beginning to capitalize on the fact that many people don’t want to be left without everyday items like bread and crackers. They have the...

    Laura Noble, founder and creator of Cousin Mary Jane and Lady Jane Gourmet Seed Co, on discovering the benefits hiding in hemp

    It all started with a trip to the grocery store with my granddaughter a few years ago.
    In early spring of 2011, I had recently returned from an event that was focused around industrial hemp. I had been seeking out locating a source for purchasing hemp fabrics to make sun protective clothing. In the process I came across hemp seeds. I had heard of rope, textiles, paper and refined oil products from hemp, but had no clue hemp provided something you could eat!
    My curiosity took me to reading the nutrition label on hemp seeds. Much to my surprise, I was totally amazed at the nutritional profile. I had never seen such an impressive resume and simply could not believe the dense nutrition. It opened up a whole new world for me.
    It came to me a couple weeks later when I was at the grocery store with my little granddaughter who had just handed me a yogurt she wanted me to purchase. This brightly colored packaging was targeting her big beautiful blue eyes, making claim to being a “healthy” choice, when if fact it was filled with what my mother has always termed as “garbage”. Artificial flavors and dyes, too much sugar – stuff a growing child should not be eating.
    My next thought at that moment was, here we are, a nation of riches, where our children (let alone adults) are battling malnutrition diseases like diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and cancers because people simply are not aware that they are being fooled as to what is truly nutritious and healthy eating. Diseases that the nutrition in the hemp seed can help your body to fight against.
    Hemp seeds are one of the most nutrient dense foods, and they were no where to be found, yet aisles of colorful boxes of processed artificial ingredients and dyes that manufactures have successfully mislead the public into thinking they are healthy food choices. Foods that are wolves in sheep clothes, laying prey to unsuspecting parents. It took me to the question, why on earth are we not utilizing the incredibility nutritionally dense hemp seed in this nation as a stable in our food products?
    Thus I created the brand Cousin Mary Jane. I wanted Cousin Mary Jane to to be a fun loving, cute Ambassador who...

    jules shepard - bread loaf with gfJules bread mix Square

    When Jules Shepard, also known as gfJules after her mega-popular website of the same name, was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1999, she was appalled at the quality of gluten-free baked goods on the market. Instead of simply complaining about it, she rolled up her sleeves and decided to do something about it. Two years later (after many hours in the kitchen), she had perfected a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend that worked just as well as a gluten-containing one.

    Although Jules designed the blend for her home use, her fans eventually convinced her to sell her gluten-free blends online. Since then, she’s sold more than a whopping million pounds of her flour blend.

    Today’s limited-time-only offer gets you Jules’ famous all-purpose blend in addition to her Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread Mix (perfect for  dinner rolls!), Gluten Free Cornbread Mix (did someone say cornbread stuffing?), and Gluten-Free Graham Cracker/Gingerbread Mix (don’t sweat that pumpkin cheesecake crust)!

    But what’s a good flour blend without a little kitchen know-how? This deal also comes with a 60-page ebook full of recipes, tips & tricks, and a handy 6-week checklist in preparation for the Big Day. From sweet to savory, Jules’ 31 recipes will have everyone in your family begging for seconds.

    Take it from us: Wednesday, November 25th is not the time to start thinking about your gluten-free Thanksgiving menu. Get a jump on your best Thanksgiving yet with pro tips, recipes and foolproof flour blends from a gluten-free expert.

  • TIME + RAW FOOD = LONG TERM INVESTMENT

    Posted on November 3, 2015 by Cathy Pearson

     
    Time is always a factor in knowing if something is right or wrong, many things have stood up to the test of time and there are many others that have not. I could go on and on about the things that have failed the test of time but there is something of importance that has definitely proven itself worthy over time, and that is the eating of an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables; these have certainly stood up to the test of time. The more we stray away from these natural health building foods the more disease will enter into ones life in time.
    Have you ever heard of an autopsy report stating that an artery was clogged from eating too much broccoli or apples caused a stroke? You get the idea. Even the American Cancer Society is publicizing the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables because it lowers the risk for cancer.
    Bottom line is that the more raw plant based foods you eat the more the health benefit. A much greater benefit will be had when you eliminate all containerized foods from your life; these are foods that come in a can, box, package or jar. Reason being is that containerized foods have been heated to the point of major nutritional destruction (Pasteurization). They have a long shelf life because there is no life left to go bad. If you place a rock on a shelf it will sit there forever unchanged. I’ve heard the same about McDonald's hamburgers.
    Anything put into the body that has no nutritional value (dead cooked food) is sensed by the immune system as foreign entity and must be acted upon accordingly and eliminated which wastes the body's energy and robs the body of valuable reserves. Over time when the bodies reserves get all used up deficiency diseases will be the result.
    As we get older we should not have to suffer from any aches, pains or any other health issues. But so often in today's world many think this is a normal part of aging, when in reality this is not normal. We should be able to live a pain free, disease free existence until the day we die. This can be accomplished simply by giving our body a variety and abundance of nutritious raw plant foods. It’s that simple!
    Think of eating fruits and vegetables as putting deposits in to your health bank account. Kind...
