What's New at Global Vitamins

1.Hempseed Flour Power
Hempseed flour is an amazing flour that we now carry that has a great macronutrient profile. It has 14 grams of protein, 3.6 grams of fat, 11 grams of carbohydrates and 6.4 grams of fibre! Best of all it is gluten free, making it an awesome alternative to regular wheat based flour.

1bs pound is $4.99

Here is an easy Protein Pancake recipe:
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups of Hemp Flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 scoop of natural whey powder / vanilla
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2cups of rice milk
2 eggs or equivalent egg replacer
2 - 3 tablespoons oil
Add some fresh blueberries to get some extra antioxidants!
Mix the dry ingredients together and then add the rice milk / or my new favorite hemp milk, oil and eggs. Mix well and try to get some of the lumps out of the batter. Don't worry about making it perfectly smooth. It will be fine.
Heat a skillet on medium heat. When heated, scoop the pancake batter recipe into the frying pan with a large spoon to make individual pancakes. The pan will probably only take one or two pancakes at a time. Cook on one side until the top begins to bubble, then flip over and cook on the other side.

2. Ormus Greens
It's the newest super food / greens product and we have it. It's organic, raw and vegan friendly, and most importantly it has a nice spearmint flavour that will mix with any post workout vanilla protein, or with a cup of cold H2o. As many of you know, at NGV we are huge fans of only Organic super foods as they will have no pesticides and higher mineral and nutrient density then those that are not. Furthermore they are the same price!
1 lb of Ormus greens is now on sale for $69.99
Here is a list of Ingredients and a brief description of what their benefits are.
Oat Grass - We use oat grass in our formula because it picks up the highest amounts of Noble Elements and ormus from the soil. Oat grass is used traditionally to help build sexual stamina. Oat grass (Avena Sativa) has a relaxing and stimulating action that nourishes and strengthens the nervous system. Barley and Wheat Grass- Barley and wheat grass are both loaded with high trace minerals, calcium, iron, all essential amino acids, vitamin C, the flavonoids, and a number of enzymes and minerals. They also contain superoxide dismutase (SOD), a powerful antioxidant enzyme that protects the cells against toxic free radicals. All the cereal grasses pick up ormus from the soil.
Alfalfa - Alfalfa is a plant which sends its roots down twenty to thirty feet into the ground and brings up the minerals that are not available on the surface. For this reason, the Arabic word Alfalfa means "father of plants." Alfalfa is rich in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that play a vital role in the strength and growth of our bones and in the maintenance of a healthy body. It contains protein and vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, and vitamin K. It also contains calcium, potassium, carotene, iron, and zinc.
Yucca - Yucca are desert plants that are part of the Agave family. We wild craft our own wild Yucca plants in the high desert in a way that promotes growth for the other plants. Yucca extracts may have anti-arthritic and anti-inflammatory effects including anti-fungal and anti- protozoal activities. Yucca is also a rich source of phenolics, including resveratrol and a number of other stilbenes (yuccaols A, B, C, D and E). Yucca extracts and its phenolics are also anti-oxidants and free-radical scavengers.
Parsley - Parsley is perhaps one of the most commonly used but therapeutically under-rated of herbs. Parsley is very high in bio available vitamin C and is a good source of manganese, calcium and potassium. It also contains flavonoids that act as antioxidants. Parsley is also rich in vitamin A, well-known for its effects on vision, plus can mitigate risks of atherosclerosis and diabetes. Parsley cleanses the blood, dissolves sticky deposits in veins, maintains elasticity of blood vessels, facilitates removal of moderately sized kidney and gallstones, treats deafness and ear infections, and benefits the sexual system. Parsley helps with bad breath and is one of the most important herbs for providing vitamins to the body. It's like an immune-enhancing multi-vitamin and mineral complex in green plant form.
Spinach - Spinach is a rich source of protein, minerals, vitamins, pigments and phytonutrients. Health benefits of spinach are due to presence of vitamins, pigments, phytonutrients and minerals like potassium, manganese, zinc, magnesium, iron and calcium. Spinach is a source of vitamins like folate, niacin, vitamin A, B6, C and traces of the rest of the vitamins. Other important elements, including thiamine and riboflavin, that are used in various reactions in our body are also found in spinach. Spinach is rich in pigments like beta carotene, lutein and xanthene and chlorophyllin etc.
Probiotic Culture - We use a “live active culture” process with part of our cereal greens. This is different from other companies who just mix Probiotics into their greens. Traditional Probiotic foods include: yogurt, kefir, miso, and sauerkrauts and are very good for the body and digestive tract. Science has learned that cultured foods are easy to digest and create life-enhancing nutrients.
Peppermint makes our greens easy to drink and very palatable. Peppermint is also an age-old herbal medicine that has been used to treat a wide range of abdominal woes, from flatulence to stomach cancer to gallbladder disease. Several studies have shown that peppermint seems to be fairly effective at relieving irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a collection of symptoms that includes abdominal cramping and pain, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea. Peppermint also has anti-parasitic properties and has been used in folk remedies to get rid of parasites.
Whole Leaf Stevia - We use the whole leaf stevia herb which has been used for centuries in South America to aid diabetics and hypoglycemics. Research has shown that a whole leaf stevia herb has a regulating effect on the pancreas and helps stabilize blood sugar levels. Herbal stevia is therefore useful to people with diabetes, hypoglycemia, and Candidiasis. Other traditional uses of herbal stevia are to lower elevated blood pressure (hypertension), as a digestive aid that also reduces gas and stomach acidity, and for obesity. The herb acts as general tonic which increases energy levels and mental acuity. The stevia herb has also been shown to inhibit the growth and reproduction of bacteria that cause gum disease and tooth decay, making it an excellent addition for the teeth and gums.
