Getting Absorbable Nutrients to Avoid Deficiency
The following information is for education only and is not meant to diagnose, prescribe, or treat illness. It is valuable to seek the advice of an alternative health care professional before making any changes.
These foods can be EFFORTLESSLY absorbed into the small intestine, as they are already broken down into very simple forms. It is also KEY to take these foods on an EMPTY stomach AND!!! as your FIRST INTAKES of the day (after drinking water). You wake up and your body is regenerated, cleansed, refreshed, completely digested and this is when you have the MOST vitality. At this time your body is truly hungry and is ready to just SUCK-UP the nutrients you provide. When there is no other food or obstruction within the digestive tract, absorption is at its best. Once most people start to eat their first solid meal of the day, they usually don't end up with an empty stomach again until the next morning. It is just food piled on top of food, all day long. In this context, vitality goes down, obstruction is increased within the body, and absorption is greatly affected. The body absorbs food the BEST as our first food intake of the day and on an empty stomach.
I personally eat only one or two meals a day, JUST SO that I can have many sessions of consuming absorbable nutrients in-between. For example, the first thing I consume in the morning after water, is a green vegetable juice. About an hour later, I will consume a couple teaspoons of royal jelly. As soon as I eat my first solid meal, I generally wait 4 - 6 hours before I consume ANYTHING else again. I won't even eat any of these absorbable foods such as royal jelly or green vegetable juice, because I know that if I put that on top of my previous meal, it will cause a MASS of fermentation and that I will get very little actual benefit from the foods. Taking absorbable nutrients as our FIRST food intake of the day, on an empty stomach is KEY! I generally intake 2 - 4 different absorbable foods on an empty stomach before I eat my first solid meal. Then after that first solid meal digests, I generally call it quits for the day or I will only take in more absorbable nutrients again (most of the time ;-) ). I feel it is even key to let each of these forms of absorbable foods, such as royal jelly, COMPLETELY digest before taking in another absorbable food, such as a green juice. If you let these absorbable foods digest completely in the body you will experience the least amount of fermentation and your body can make use of this mono meal of absorbable nutrients in the best possible way.
Kevin Trudeau states in his book, "Natural Cures", that after cleansing your colon with a series of colonics, your absorption rate increases by 100%. There is no doubt in my mind that this can be true, due to both my own experiences and what I have seen with others. I can sense that when I am inundated with toxicity and obstruction in my body, these HIGHLY ABSORBABLE foods that I meantioned above, don't do NEARLY as good for me as when I feel CLEAN!!! Especially for raw foodists, I feel that it is key that we cleanse our colon on a periodic basis, to side-step toxicity and deficiency.
In conclusion, I feel that all people, not just Raw Foodists, can do well to strategize a game plan for themselves to remain deficiency-free and I hope that this article inspires you and gives you a few pointers on how to accomplish this...

I am excited to announce that Blendtec JUST came out with a *New* Blender Package deal where you can get a Blendtec Blender with two different carafe's at a discounted price. Additionally, we are going to offer an extra discount on this already discounted package. I have received NUMEROUS requests to offer the Blendtec Blenders at a discount again, like we did last year. This is probably going to be the LAST time we offer this kind of INCREDIBLE appliance deal.

This very special offer is good until February 28th.
Blendtec JUST CAME OUT with a discounted package, in which you can get the standard 2qt carafe PLUS the 3qt carafe with the 4-inch blade!!! I feel that this is the IDEAL discount package from them. I personally love having multiple carafes for my HIGH-SPEED blender and when I can get two like this in a packaged discounted deal, I am STOKED!!! Additionally, we are offering an extra $69 discount on top of that package, for a LIMTED TIME!!! I personally have one of each carafe. As you already know, I use the 3qt carafe (4" blade) most of the time. However, I also like to use the 2qt carafe for things like grounding down flax seeds or nuts. I love having a second carafe on hand, as sometimes I want to blend two different items for one meal, or I am looking for a vessel to pour something into, so having the second carafe makes my life much easier :-)
For those of you who are NEW to our newsletter, in the Raw Foods Community there has long been a debate about which is the BEST High-Speed Blender to get... the Vitamix or the Blendtec? They both have their advantages, such as the Vitamix comes with a 'tamper'/pusher and the Blendtec is digital and has a higher horsepower, in most cases. Whichever one of these blenders that you chose in the past was pretty much a good decision... UNTIL NOW!!!
Blendtec recently came out with the larger carafe (3qt/96oz which is larger than their 2qt/64oz) with a longer blade (4 inches rather than 3 inches), which will fit onto any Blendtec Blender base. This discovery is HUGE!!!... and the benefits are MANY!!!. The top three benefits of this new container in my opinion are that it doesn't oxidize the food nearly as much, it is the most effective blender for rapidly blending food down to a liquid form, and it is BPA FREE.
Whenever we blend down any harder to blend foods in the Vitamix or the Blendtec with the 3 inch blade carafe, the contents get a bit heated up in the blending process. However, when using this new larger carafe, in almost ALL CASES the food remains cold after blending. Additionally, we did two comparison tests between the Vitamix, the Blendtec with the smaller carafe and the Blendtec with the larger carafe. In the first comparison test we used apples and in the second one we used vegetables. In BOTH instances, the contents of the Blendtec with the larger carafe were less oxidized (the color of the food contents didn't turn brownish quickly, as with the other blenders). You can see this color contrast in the video below.
The reason why the Blendtec with the larger carafe oxidizes less is due to the longer 4 inch blade with the wider space at the bottom of the carafe. The 4 inch blade breaks down the food SO FAST and it requires less spinning revolutions to do this job, compared to the other blender options. There is more space at the bottom of the larger carafe for the food to sit, so it falls down into the blade area easily, evenly and gets broken down rapidly, without getting heated up over and over again as it spins, as can happen with the others. Additionally, the new carafe has a patented 5-sided jar, which produces a better blending vortex. It is AMAZING how fast the food contents break down into a liquid consistency with this carafe - we LOVE it!
When we make blended salads/energy soup with lots of leafy greens, normally we have to use the "pusher" in the Vitamix to get it to blend well, or we have to shake the Blendtec with the smaller carafe endlessly to get it going properly... AND... the contents always end up a bit heated. This new Blendtec with the larger carafe, breaks down these types of blended salads almost effortlessly every single time and the food contents come out COLD in almost every single instance. I have been surprised on many occasions when blending food items that would normally have been heated up in another high-speed blender, which come out cold to my tongue after blending in this Blendtec with the large carafe and 4 inch blade.
The larger carafe of course also has the capacity to blend more food contents all AT ONE TIME!... and due to the larger blade and spaciousness at the bottom of the carafe, it never seems overloaded as can happen with the other high-speed blenders. When you overload a Vitamix or the Blendtec with the smaller carafe, you are pretty much guaranteed to end up with food contents that are heated up and oxidized. This heating is extremely rare with the Blendtec with the larger carafe.
In my opinion NO HIGH-SPEED blender currently compares to the Blendtec Blender with the larger carafe and 4 inch blade. The video comparison below will hopefully make this obvious to you too. The lowest online advertised price that anyone can currently sell this new Blendtec Blender with both the larger and smaller carafes for is $489.95. However, right now, if you use the coupon code we mentioned up above 'blendtec60' on our site, you will get $68.50 off the price of this blender, which will make the price just $421.36.

I LOVE how the larger carafe is so SPACIOUS!!! It is so easy to get the food out of the bottom of it... especially compared to the Vitamix. This wider bottom easily allows all the food to fall down around the blade evenly. It's quite amazing. This new model IS the NEW highest standard for high-speed blenders in my opinion... and I am SURE that you won't regret it, if you decide to purchase one. This SHOWS you how much I believe in the benefits of this new blender.
To sum it all up... The Blendtec with the larger carafe and longer blade blends the food contents faster and more effectively, it has the capacity to hold more and blend more food (without heating up :-)), the food oxidizes less and comes out cooler, and it is easier to get the food out of the carafe due to all the spaciousness!

Your Right To Be Beautiful Multi-Herbal Green Clay Masque 2oz in a NICE glass container
Tonya Zavasta just came out with a Green Clay Masque that doesn't dry up like other masques. This is what Tonya has to say about it... "The common opinion is that facial masques shouldn't be used more than once a week. I think of masques like exercise - you won't get the benefits if you only do it once in a while. While developing this masque one of my objectives was a delayed drying up time. Plus, by leaving the masque on your face only for 3-5 minutes you get all the cleansing benefits without the drying effect that most clay masques produce. It can be used as often as the skin permits, ideally every day. It will leave the skin instantly brighter and clearer-looking."
