Better than Green Tea


Spring has sprung here at Suede Hills Organic Farm, most evidently shown by the amount of dandelions spreading across our lawn! Our Stevia beds have been tilled by our hard workers and are pretty much ready to be planted in! We will still have a good month or two before the plants are ready to go into the ground though. The trees are starting to grow their leaves, even the olive trees are beginning to leaf out!

With the weather unpredictable during spring many people like to have tea when it gets a little chilly after those spring rains. If you haven't tried Olive Leaf Tea you should. It's delicious, has a mild taste to it. However Olive Leaf Tea has much more going for it than just flavour!

Did you know Olive Leaf Tea has ten times more antioxidants than Green Tea? It's true! Oleuropein, found in olive leaf, is amazing and can work wonders!

Oleuropein has been found to help:

  • combat viruses, inhibiting them from replicating

  • lower cholesterol

  • lower blood pressure(by expanding the blood vessel)

  • keep away fungus

  • keep away bacteria

  • keep away viruses

  • prevent cold sores and herpes

  • maintain a strong and balanced immune system

  • prevent shingles

  • fight the common cold and flu bugs

  • reduce fevers

  • inhibit and destroy yeast

If you have found that you've been sick recently or that you could use some of these health benefits, try some Olive Leaf Tea for yourself!

Candida Fighters


Candida is a genus of yeast and is a normal part of the human body. However, if there are too many of this yeast in the human body (caused by a diet rich in yeast feeding sugars and simple carbohydrates) it creates problems.

Often Candida is seen as a woman's disease, however men can and often do suffer with Candida.

This disease can cause:

  • abdominal gas and bloating
  • headaches
  • migraines
  • excessive fatigue
  • cravings for alcohol
  • anxiety, vaginitis
  • rectal itching
  • cravings for sweets
  • inability to think clearly or concentrate
  • hyperactivity
  • mood swings
  • diarrhea
  • constipation
  • itching
  • acne
  • eczema
  • depression
  • sinus inflammation
  • pre-menstrual syndrome
  • dizziness
  • poor memory
  • persistent cough
  • ear aches
  • low sex drive
  • muscle weakness
  • irritability
  • learning difficulties
  • sensitivity to fragrances and/or other chemicals
  • cognitive impairment
  • thrush
  • athlete's foot
  • sore throat
  • indigestion
  • acid reflux
  • chronic pain

Three simple ways to reduce the likelihood of creating an environment in your body that is conducive to the overgrowth of Candida.

1) Alkalizing

pH Happy Caps, when taken at night with just enough water to swallow them will help to bring your pH level up to 7.4 or more which is a negative environment for Candida.

Benefits of Vitamin D


This vitamin is also referred to as the 'Sunshine Vitamin' because when we spend time in the sun our bodies actually produce Vitamin D. This vitamin is amazing and has been proven to help prevent Arthritis, Birth Defects, Cancer, Depression, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Heart attacks, Hypertension and helps prevent pregnancy problems!

The main use of Vitamin D in your body, however, is to regulate the use of calcium and phosphorus in your body. It also helps your body properly form strong and healthy teeth and bones.

Often Vitamin D deficiencies are diagnosed in the winter when most people aren't outside much and their bodies can't create enough of the vitamin to go around. When your body does not have enough Vitamin D the most common symptom is depression, often found during the winter months, but extreme deficiencies cause rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults.

As the days shorten and grow colder we will be spending less time outside and when we are outside we are usually bundled up. Less sunshine means our bodies create less Vitamin D and we need to supplement this loss with our diet. The problem is that Vitamin D is not found in many foods.

Many places will try to tell you that Vitamin D can be found in factory made supplements and in cows milk. However, these supplements are chemically made, often with fillers, and thus are not natural. These unnatural supplements do not break down in your body correctly, and unless you are a baby cow the cows milk does not break down correctly either.

Vitamin D can be naturally found in the mature Alfalfa plant. Alfalfa is a natural vegan source of Vitamin D. Every other source has to be 'fortified' with chemically made
Vitamin D which your body can not break down or use properly.

Diabetes and pH


Many people have been wondering how one's body pH connects with Diabetes. After studying and researching we have concluded that Diabetes is directly related to the pH of your body. A high acidic pH level puts all the body's organs at risk but we will focus on the pancreas and liver for now.

Due to the important role played by the liver in removing acid waste from the body, liver functions are particularly at risk when acids accumulate in the body. When acidity prevents the liver and pancreas from regulating blood sugar, the risk of Diabetes will increase.

Not only does high acidity make you vulnerable to Diabetes, the impact of Diabetes on the body increases the level of acid waste. Therefore improper pH balance puts diabetics at greater risk for complications such as kidney failure, gangrene and blindness.

A diabetic suffers from an excess of glucose in the bloodstream, glucose that cannot be delivered properly to the body's cells due to lack of insulin.
when the glucose is not delivered properly to the body's cells the cell starts to malfunction. Acid that is not filtered out or stored in fact cells can attach to and harden the cell walls, further preventing the cells from absorbing nutrients. Eventually the cells die, starting with the glucose-dependent eyes and the extremities where it is more difficult for nutrients to reach.

Without proper treatment, chronic acidity of the body leads to growth retardation, kidney stones, bone disease, chronic kidney disease, possible total kidney failure, and most degenerative diseases.

Fortunately, when you significantly reduce the acids in your body it is most likely to lead to organ regeneration and improved health. A diet that's more alkaline can help you reverse the damage caused by acidity and Diabetes. The right combination of quality plant minerals, for example, can help your body break down and escort the excessive acid waste out of your body.

Adding plant vitamins and minerals daily from fresh fruits and vegetables will help increase your alkalinity. Real "mineral rich" rood is what makes the difference. Your body is not able to use the laboratory manufactured 'supplements' that are so widely available.

If you raise the pH level of your body it will be empowered to repair itself the way it was designed.

Health Benefits of Chocolate Mint Tea


How is everyone today? It certainly has been an interesting couple of months. With spring slow to start we're running around trying to get all our Stevia plants started in enough time to have them mature to plant! We will probably be planting our new Stevia plants in about three weeks. It was nice and warm yesterday it was 21C (about 70F) and a couple of days ago it was 25C (about 77F), and we're loving the warmth! It rained a little yesterday, which put a damper on Phil's plans to rotovate the soon to be Stevia beds.

We have been researching our teas and here's what we found on our most popular Suede Hills Chocolate Mint Stevia Bark Tea.

Fruit Facts


With Spring knocking at our door I thought I'd put up some interesting fruit facts!


Apples

applesApples are high in a photochemical called Quercetin. Quercetin prevents the release of histamine, which reduces inflammation. This is believed by researchers to play a key role in the apple's protective effects against heart disease. Apples are also a good source of pectin, which is known to help to lower cholesterol.

Bananas

bananaBananas are an excellent source for potassium. Potassium is a key electrolyte which plays important roles in regulating fluid balance, which is essential for maintaining a healthy blood pressure. Foods which are high in potassium are considered to be heart healthy because they help to lower blood pressure and prevent heart disease.

Cantaloupe

Cantaloupe and OrangesCantaloupe contains a substance called adenosine which is used as a blood thinner and to relieve angina attacks in individuals who suffer from heart disease.

Oranges

Oranges are a good source of pectin, a dietary fiber which is well known for its effectiveness at lowering cholesterol levels. Whole fruit contains more pectin than fruit juice. Eating 15 grams or more of fruit pectin each day has been to reduce cholesterol levels by 10 %. One whole orange contains about 7.5 grams of pectin. This means that eating 2 oranges each day will result in a 20% reduced risk of heart disease!

A positive link between Potassium-rich and bicarbonate-rich foods indices of bone health


10 million Americans have Osteoporosis with 17.9 billion spent per year in the US and 13.9 billion in Europe. Health-related benefits of a high intake of potassium-rich and bicarbonate-rich (veggies and fruit) on disease prevention have been gaining attention.

A positive link between Potassium-rich and bicarbonate-rich foods indices of bone health. Studies have shown specific associations between nutrients found in abundance in fruits and veggies and both axial and peripheral bone mass and markers of bone resorption. Women in the lowest quartile of intake for Potassium, Magnesium, fiber, vitamin C, Beta-Carotene had significantly lower lumbar spine and femoral neck Bone Mineral Density (BMD).

Another study women with low intakes of those same nutrients were found to have lower forearm bone mass and higher bone resorption. Studies from APOSSI (Aberdeen Prospective Osteoporosis Screening Study) has shown consistent longitudinal beneficial effect of fruit and veggies nutrients on bone loss in premenopausal women.

Also if fruit intake raised from 3.6-9.5 daily servings decreased urinary calcium excretion from 157 to 110 mg/d. Higher fruit and vegetable diet reduced the "Acid Load" compared to the control diet and conserved calcium for bone retention. This diet reduced bone fragmentation by 8-10% and bone resorption by 16-18%. A recent Swiss study suggests a strong beneficial effect of alkali supplementation in osteopenic women.
