Don’t Forget to Eat your Reds

Just think about it for a moment. Think about all the brilliant colours of all the fruits and vegetables that grow on our amazing planet. Imagine this edible rainbow with all the colours of health. Did you know that every colour and shade in the plant kingdom yields its own unique nutritional spectrum? Each of these coloured pigments contain specific phyto (plant) nutrients that nourish, heal and energize us. That’s why we need to include all the rainbow colours in our daily diets!


RED is the New Green – For years the main colour attraction has been shades of Green. Now, don’t get us wrong; we’re as keen as ever on Greens. It’s just that…well, Reds have seriously captured our attention since nutritional scientists around the world are reporting on their special properties. Or should we say super powers?


Our Organic Red SuperFood powder is based upon hundreds of published studies. PubMed, the free search engine maintained by the National Institutes of Health, affirms the powerful, far-reaching health benefits of red super foods. Our Prairie Naturals Organic Red SuperFood is based upon this extensive research.


Deliciously Nutritious Organic Reds


Organic Beet Roots – Provides nitric oxide, improves blood flow, lowers blood pressure, boosts stamina and improves oxygen use in athletes, protects cells, proteins, and enzymes from environmental stress and also; prevents inflammation and numerous chronic diseases, protects internal organs, improves cardiovascular health and supports detoxification.


Organic Pomegranates – A concentrated source of antioxidant polyphenols (tannins, anthocyanins, and ellagic acid); protects cells against cancer, prevents aging, neutralizes free radicals, reduces oxidative stress, prevents tissue and organ damage and lowers chronic inflammation. A recent human study in Israel showed significant improvement for arthritis sufferers including reduced joint pain and decreased inflammation.


Organic Goji Berries – Recent research published in the journal of Neuromolecular Medicine (March 2016) describe Goji berries as having “powerful neuro-protective effect on a number of neuronal diseases.” This includes retinal disorders, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and spinal cord injury. The colourful natural phytonutrient pigments, zeaxanthin and carotene, contain therapeutic antioxidants with cell-protecting and anti-aging properties.


Organic Grapeseed – Substantially increases blood levels of antioxidants to combat health problems related to free radical damage including premature aging, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.


Organic Carrots – Exceptional, natural beta carotene content; orange antioxidants with disease-fighting powers help maintain immunity, prevent night blindness and dry eyes, support healthy bones, protect cellular health and reduce cancer risk.


Organic Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries & Cranberries

A valuable source of potent phytochemicals (including anthocynanins, ellagic acid, coumaric, ferulic acid) that synergistically work wonders to optimize health through their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. They’re protective against urinary-tract infections, cancer, age-related health conditions and brain damage from stroke, reduce the risks of gum disease, stomach ulcers and high cholesterol. And here’s what you’re not getting in our Organic Reds… No added sugars, preservatives, colours, artificial sweeteners or flavours. No animal products or by-products. No genetically modified organisms (GMOs). No gluten, corn or yeast.
