Power of Grains

Right across the globe, the variety of grain products available in the market is simply mind-boggling. World Health Organisation stresses the nutritional importance of grains as a foundation for a good and wholesome diet. This miracle food can be easily stored and transported without getting damaged and spoilt. Grains contain the majority of basic nutrients essential for survival and good health, i.e., water carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and are thus, humbly known as the ‘Cinderella of Nutrition.’

About seventy percent of the energy content of an Indian diet is derived from grains since they are an important source of fiber, B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and folate), and minerals (iron, magnesium, and selenium). More often than not, they are looked down upon as a necessary evil. The kinds of grains that are available today are wheat, corn, barley, rice, rye, buckwheat, amaranth, sorghum, and quinoa.

For a healthy Heart – Two to four servings of whole grains a day reduce the risk of heart disease by as much as forty percent and also protects from hypertension. Not known to many, it provides a similar effect as to the impact of ‘statin’ drugs. Ten gms of cereal fiber in the diet dramatically reduces the risk of coronary heart diseases. Consuming more oats and rye flour is always beneficial. Fiber is plentiful in unrefined grains, fruits, and vegetables.

Tackle Cancer – Intake of whole grains provides significant protection from cancer especially collateral, gastric, ovarian, prostate, breast, and uterine cancer.

Control Diabetes – By virtue of the fact that whole grains are packed with fiber,  it slows digestion and the absorption of carbohydrates. This may not raise our blood sugar as quickly as in the case of refined grains. Since whole grains help to feel fuller for a longer time, they inherently assist in managing weight. For people with Type 2 diabetes, whole grains make a better choice as compared to refined carbohydrates since they are a rich source of vitamins and minerals.

Few Myths About Eating Whole Grains

It is universally felt that eating grains lead to inflammation in the body. On the contrary, it is vice versa. Consuming a cup of whole grains daily for a month increases the good bacteria in our gut thereby decreasing inflammation and improving gut health.

As widely believed, eating grains does not lead to obesity. Increased weight is attributable to unhealthy food habits wherein, even the pattern of lifestyle matters. If a diet contains the right amount of whole grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits, and good oils in the right proportion, one need not worry about weight gain.

Eliminating grains from the diet will cause more harm to our health. Fruits and vegetables though healthy, are not nutrient-dense as in the case of whole grains as these provide energy along with satiety to the body.

Clinical Trial & Our Product

Since health care & medicine is an industry, formulations are controlled through intellectual property rights denying easy access to common people and maintaining the buoyancy for the interest holders. Formula’s can be patented and that covers business interests that drive innovations these days.

So instead of conducting trials on the raw root, almost all companies promote clinically tested formulations of extracts to make it appear better then how the phytochemical was in its original state. Its like extracting an important organ from the body and then putting it on support system, expecting it to perform better in insolation then how it could perform when in it was in its natural form. The truth is, that the best way to consume a plant based medicine is in its raw form. Curcumin is one of the active ingredients in the root Curcuma Longa.

Since its more important to know what your food ate then what you ate, its important to know that the supplements you are using based on curcumin has curcumin from a gene modified variety of curcuma longa which suffers from an imbalance of every other mineral. You see a plant also behaves how a human body behaves when it is injected with steroids to gain muscle mass for body building purpose. The plants have higher levels of curcumin but all other secondary minerals found along curcumin in the plant get compromised as the plant can not feed all nutritions equally when it is designed to feed most of its nutrition towards developing higher levels of curcumin. It has severe side effects on the health of the plant and apparently on the people consuming such plants or extracts coming from these plants. However marketing and promotions have evolved to divert attention very wisely.

An extract of any herb can never be stored in its original state and hence needs base agents, preservatives which hardly leave it how it must be. We believe that access to medicine and healthcare is a basic right of every human and animal living on planet earth. Hence we do not first extract and then add preservatives or agents like pepperine to make the extract bio-available. This is the reason we never patent any of our products. We instead hand process the whole root we cultivate in our farms and share it with the people under different brand names for different health conditions based on the concentration of minerals present at testing. You can also buy the seed from us and cultivate it but it will certainly not be as potent as you get from us.

How potent is the active ingredient in the plant depends on the quality of seed, soil, water and environment. Our products work far better then most of the curcumin based supplements globally being used for Therapeutic benefits.

We do not intend to formulate or patent our products. So instead of choosing a supplement with an extract, choose wisely and go for the best and not the Cheapest.

All our products are cultivated, harvested, hand processed and distributed directly from our own farms to ensure that people who depend on our products for their acute and chronic problems get consistent supply of highest quality, ultra premium, medicinal grade, Non-GMO, Indigenous, Naturally enriched with curcumin, Wild Strand curcuma longa powder for therapeutic benefits. We cultivate this in the middle of a national park which happens to be the best breeding ground for Bengal tigers in India called Bandhavgarh.
