Wild harvested from Saffron fields in Iran Crocus sativus is the world's most expensive spice. Saffron are the stigmas from the crocus sativus flower.

There are only 3 stigmas (referred to as saffron threads) per flower. Saffron is hand harvested so you can understand why it is so prized and so expensive. It takes about 13,125 threads to weigh one ounce. Health benefits of Saffron Saffron contains many plants derived chemical compounds that are known to have been anti-oxidant, disease preventing and health promoting properties.







The flower stigma are composed of many essential volatile oils but the most important being safranal, which gives saffron its distinct hay-like flavor. Other volatile oils in saffron are cineole, phenethenol, pinene, borneol, geraniol, limonene, p-cymene, linalool, terpinen-4-oil, etc. This colorful spice has many non-volatile active components; the most important of them is α-crocin, a carotenoid compound, which gives the stigmas their characteristic golden-yellow color. It also contains other carotenoids, including zea-xanthin, lycopene, α- and β-carotenes.

These are important antioxidants that help protect the human body from oxidant-induced stress, cancers, infections and acts as immune modulators. The active components in saffron have many therapeutic applications in many traditional medicines as antiseptic, antidepressant, anti-oxidant, digestive, anti-convulsant.

 This novel spice is a good source of minerals like copper, potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, selenium, zinc and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure. Manganese and copper are used by the body as co-factors for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Iron is essential for red blood cell production and as a co-factor for cytochrome oxidases enzymes.


Additionally, it is also rich in many vital vitamins, including vitamin A, folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin-C that is essential for optimum health.

Purgative White Manna 


For purging Spleen and kidney, naturally High in Ormes and life force energy
Manna (Hebrew: מָ‏ן‎) or al-Mann wa al-Salwa (Arabic: المَنّ و السلوى‎, Kurdish: gezo, Persian: گزانگبین‎), sometimes or archaically spelled mana, is an edible substance that, according to Abrahamic doctrine, God provided for the Israelites during their travels in the desert according to the Bible and the Qur'an.

 It is a Sacred food that is said to have been sent down to the Samarii people of Moses and sustained their good health during their diaspora and exodus. Origin Manna is from Heaven, according to the Bible. In the Mishnah, manna is treated as a supernatural substance, created during the twilight of the sixth day of Creation, It is said to be a 'nectar for the eyes' ('seeing' beyond the physical)

Food was not manna's only use; one classical source states that the fragrant odor of manna was used in an Israelite perfume and burning essence for clearing the space of negative energies. In the Biblical account, the name manna is said to derive from the question man hu, seemingly meaning "What is it?"; this is perhaps an Aramaic etymology, not a Hebrew one.



Man is possibly synonymous with the Arabic term man, meaning plant 'lice', with 'man hu' thus meaning "this is plant lice", which fits one widespread modern identification of manna, the crystallized honeydew. In the environment of a desert, such honeydew rapidly dries due to evaporation of its water content, becoming a sticky solid, and later turning whitish, yellowish, or brownish; honeydew of this form is considered a delicacy in the Middle East, and is a good source of carbohydrates.

 Natural slightly sweet taste to be eaten raw.

Roasted Pine Nuts 

Crunchy, sweet and delicious pine nuts are small edible seeds of pine tree. Pine kernels are indeed very good source of plant derived nutrients, essential minerals, vitamins and "heart friendly" mono-unsaturated fatty acids that help benefit in reducing cholesterol levels in the blood. It may surprise you to learn that pine nuts can be a potent appetite suppressor.

A statement (below) from the Researcher Dr Regina Jensen (PHd)  a licenses as a psychotherapist, physical therapist, certifications as Master Executive Coach, and Somatic therapies with professional training and experience for over 35 years. She is a writer and independent researcher with a commitment "to finding intelligent, expedient and joyful solutions for the predicaments we have co-created for each other on our Mother Planet." (fullyalivewellnesscenter.com)


"Pine nuts are rich in the most important macro- and micronutrients: 70% of these are essential and relatively essential, which indicates the high biological value of proteins. While arginine (up to 21g/100 g of protein) is considered replaceable in the diet of an adult person, it is considered essential in the case of children.

 Pine nut protein is distinguished from the protein of other products by its elevated content of diamino-hexanoic acid (up to 12.4g/100g of protein), methionine (up to 5.6g/100g of protein) and triptophane (up to 3.4g/100g of protein) - these are the most frequently deficient amino acids, which usually limit the biological value of protein in product composition.

 Cedar Nut Oil Press

Characterised by an elevated content of amino acids, especially arginine. These amino acids are extremely important to development of the growing organism. Hence cedar nuts have been essential in the diet of children, teenagers and pregnant women. Nut protein is easy to digest.


Pine nuts contain valuable lipolytic vitamins E and P . E-group vitamins, or tocopherols, are very important and essential in ensuring complete genetic heredity. (The word tocopherol in Greek literally means "I bear offspring" . ) A deficiency of Vitamin E upsets the fatty balance in the system. Vitamin E is responsible for the production of milk in nursing mothers, and its deficiency can stop lactation.




A person's predisposition to atherosclerosis can also be explained by a Vitamin-E deficiency. Pine nuts contain a complex of B vitamins, which normalise the activity of the nervous system, have a favourable influence on the growth and development of the human organism, and improve blood composition. Young wolves delight in feasting on cedar nuts during exfoliation.

Cedar nuts are used by both carnivores and herbivores, and are an effective antidote to vitamin deficiency, which causes serious disorders in the system. Pine nut nuclei are rich in valuable mineral substances and micronutrients. The food value is confirmed by the chemical composition of the cedar nuts. They surpass all other nuts as well as oil seeds in terms of phosphatidic content. As the richest source of lecithin they are comparable only to soybean.

Cedar nuts are also a rich source of iodine, which is very important to residents of northern latitudes."
(c) 2008 Regina B. Jensen, Ph.D.


They’re a good source of a polyunsaturated fat known as pinolenic acid. When you eat a handful of pine nuts, the pinolenic acid stimulates the secretion of a hormone produced by the intestines known as CCK. CCK sends the signal to your brain that you’re full which turns off your appetite. It also helps to slow down the rate at which your stomach empties so you feel full and satisfied longer.

Roasted Hemp Seeds

 Hemp is a high protein seed containing all nine of the essential amino acids (like flax). It also has high amounts of fatty acids and fiber as well as containing vitamin E and trace minerals.
It has a balanced ratio of omega 3 to 6 fats at around a three to one ratio. This won’t help correct your omega balance if it’s off, but it gives you the right balance to start with.

Hemp seeds are nutrient-powerhouses containing:

 All 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids (EAAs) our bodies cannot produce. A high protein percentage of the simple proteins that strengthen immunity and fend off toxins.

Eating hemp seeds in any form could aid, if not heal, people suffering from immune deficiency diseases.



This conclusion is supported by the fact that hemp seed has been used to treat nutritional deficiencies brought on by tuberculosis, a severe nutrition blocking disease that causes the body to waste away.

Nature's highest botanical source of essential fatty acid, with more essential fatty acid than flax or any other nut or seed oil.

A perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 Linoleic Acid and Omega-3 Linolenic Acid - for cardiovascular health and general strengthening of the immune system. A superior vegetarian source of protein considered easily digestible. A rich source of phytonutrients, the disease-protective element of plants with benefits protecting your immunity, bloodstream, tissues, cells, skin, organs and mitochondria. The richest known source of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids.



Hemp seed oil has been attributed to helping: increase energy, soften skin, relieve arthritis and normalize blood cholesterol. Easily digestible proteins

Dried Green and Red Grapes 



 Widely popular, grapes are regarded in many cultures as “the queen of fruits," since centuries. These tiny berries are the storehouse of numerous health promoting phyto-nutrients such as poly-phenolic antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

No wonder why many of us include them as an integral part of our diet, be it in the form of fresh table fruits, juice, or in salads! Botanically, they are small round berries; grow in clusters on a perennial and deciduous woody vine of the genus: Vitis.



Grapes are native to Europe and Mediterranean regions but now widely cultivated all around the world. In structure, each berry features semi-translucent flesh encased in a smooth, thin skin. Some varieties contain edible seeds, while others are seedless. The color to the fruit is because of the presence of poly-phenolic pigments in them. Red or purple berries are rich in anthocyanins while white-green berries contain more of tannins, especially, catechin. Interestingly, these antioxidant compounds are densely concentrated on the skin and seeds!

 Grapes have been harvested from orchards in rich soil areas where the fruits grow wild and freely. Always freshly dried!


Health benefits of grapes

Grapes are rich in polyphenolic phytochemical compound resveratrol. Resveratrol is one of the powerful anti-oxidant, which has been found to play a protective role against cancers of colon and prostate, coronary heart disease (CHD), degenerative nerve disease, Alzheimer's disease and viral/ fungal infections.

 Resveratrol reduces stroke risk by altering the molecular mechanisms in the blood vessels. It does so firstly by reducing susceptibility of blood vessel damage through decreased activity of angiotensin (a systemic hormone causing blood vessel constriction that would otherwise elevate blood pressure) and secondly, through increased production of the vasodilator substance, nitric oxide (a beneficial compound that causes relaxation of blood vessels).

 Anthocyanins are another class of polyphenolic anti-oxidants present abundantly in the red grapes. These phyto-chemicals have been found to have an anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, as well as anti-cancer activity. Catechins, a type of flavonoid tannin group of anti-oxidants, found in the white/green varieties have also shown to possess these health-protective functions. In addition, the berries are very low in calories. 100 g fresh grapes just provide 69 calories but zero cholesterol levels.

Grapes are rich source of micronutrient minerals like copper, iron and manganese. Copper and manganese are an essential co-factor of antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Iron is especially concentrated more in raisins.

In addition, 100 g of fresh grapes contain about 191 mg of health benefiting electrolyte, potassium. They are an also good source of vitamin-C, vitamin A, vitamin K, carotenes, B-complex vitamins such as pyridoxine, riboflavin, and thiamin.

The process and the taste are completely different and full of delicious tanntalizing flavors.

 In the old times, sugar was extraordinarily expensive in regions outside of India, and honey even more so. During the summer months when sweet fruits were in abundance it was a way of preserving them with full nutritional value over the winter months. The fresh juices of these fruits were boiled and reduced down to create intensely flavorful and perfectly sweet syrups, or molasses.

 These syrups were the ideal sweeteners, capitalizing on peak season fruit, and kept for months. Much more healthy than other sweeteners or sources of sugar, given that they are fruit-based, and actually contain antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

 There are so many ways to use, simply mix it with water or milk for a great drink, and eat it on toast with almond butter or tahini, served with cream cheese on currant scones or drizzled on cinnamon waffles. Beyond all of the sweet dishes, the syrup can be added to stews to add a sweet thickness instead of starchy alternatives.

Consumption of foods rich in vitamin-C helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents, counter inflammation and scavenge harmful free radicals.

 The berries also contain small amounts of vitamin A, vitamin E and in addition to the above-mentioned antioxidants. Consumption of mulberry provides another group of health promoting flavonoid polyphenolic antioxidants such as lutein, zea-xanthin, ß-carotene and α-carotene in small but notably significant amounts. Altogether, these compounds help act as protect from harmful effects of oxygen-derived free radicals and reactive oxygen species that play a role in aging and various disease processes and an important dietary carotenoid thought to provide antioxidant functions and protects the retina from the harmful ultraviolet rays through light-filtering actions.

Small Sour Cherries



Sour cherries are loaded with important nutrients, including phytochemicals (disease-fighting plant compounds), antioxidants and vitamin C.

This tiny dark red fruit is beneficial for cancer prevention, reduces inflammation, enhances heart health and provides other health benefits. Antioxidant-Rich Fruit Sour cherries are red fruits.



Red fruits and vegetables are rich in the antioxidant phytochemical class known as anthocyanins. Phytochemicals give brightly colored fruits and vegetables their colorful hues.

Anthocyanins, in particular, encourage healthy circulation, ensure proper nerve function and offer anti-cancer properties. According to a study published in the "Journal of Nutrition" in March 2002, researchers found that plants that contain the most antioxidants include members of the Rosaceae family (fruits include the sour cherry, blackberry, strawberry, raspberry).

Sour cherries offer a healthy dose of the antioxidant vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential for a strong immune system and plays a role in collagen synthesis, as well as wound healing. Cancer Prevention In addition to vitamin C and anthocyanins, sour cherries are loaded with three disease-fighting chemicals that have been shown to stop cell transformation (leading to cancer). These powerful chemicals include perillyl alcohol, limonene and ellagic acid. Only cherries contain all three chemicals.

They are particularly protective against breast, lung, liver, skin and colon cancers. In fact, findings from an experiment designed to test the potential of sour/tart cherry anthocyanins to inhibit intestinal tumor development  Researchers found that mice consuming the cherry diet had significantly fewer and smaller adenomas than mice consuming the control diet.


Cherry anthocyanins also reduced cell growth of certain human colon cancer cell lines in vitro. These results strongly suggest that sour cherry anthocyanins may reduce the risk of colon cancer.

Cardiovascular and Anti-Inflammatory Benefits Sour cherries contain quercetin, one of the most powerful antioxidants. Among other functions, quercetin prevents oxidative damage, via free radicals, from damaging low-density lipoprotein (LDL or "bad" cholesterol). When LDL cholesterol is oxidized, it is more likely to adhere to artery walls, forming plaque, which contributes to heart attack and stroke.



 sour cherry seed kernel extract significantly improved the recovery of cardiac function (including blood flow and blood pressure) following a heart attack.

Because sour cherries are rich in two anti-inflammatory compounds, anthocyanins and quercetin, they may be beneficial in alleviating asthma symptoms and other respiratory conditions and offer relief for gout sufferers (gout is a painful form of arthritis). According to an article published in "Science Daily" in February 1999, the anthocyanins and other compounds found in tart cherries inhibit pro-inflammatory enzymes called cyclooxygenase-1 and -2 and reduces pain.

Cherry Infusion (Prunus Cerasus)

 The cherry tree (Prunus cerasus) has grown in Europe and Asia since 600 BC. It is known for its fragrant, white blossoms, which are followed by small, bright red fruits, sour cherries. Ripe sour cherries are harvested by vigorously shaking the trees.

 The cherries can be eaten raw, juiced, dried, frozen or tinned, cooked for use in pies, and jams and are also used for wine and liqueurs. The cherry stone yields edible oil that, once refined, can be used in a salad dressing. The leaves can be used as a tea. A gum can be obtained from the trunk.

 Traditionally, herbalists infused cherry fruit stalks to make a diuretic, astringent tonic for cystitis, oedema and diarrhoea.

 Cherries are used medicinally for laxative and stimulant qualities and as a well-known remedy for rheumatism, gout and arthritis. Studies suggest that sour cherries contain high levels of anthracyclines, are anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. We make our infusion by adding dried cherries to boiled water.
