    EarthNutri™ Behind the Scenes

    Here at EarthNutri™ we’ve been working so hard developing our products. From purchasing, to design, to manufacturing, to marketing — we are working our butts off on the products we so heavily believe in because we know you’ll love it. So, we thought it would be cool to bring you behind the scenes to see what we’re doing!

    Pre-Workout Stick Packs

    We are currently running our pre-workout stick packs through our machines to get filled. (This means free samples. Woohoo!) Our graphic design team did such a great job with our performance line labels don’t you think?

     

    Immunity Booster with UC-II and MSM

    We’re also in the process of developing our supplement line. Our first two products are the Immunity Booster with UC-II and MSM and our Heart and Bone Health supplement with K2 + D3 + Aquamin F. 

    If you click below you’ll be able to see in the video below how we manufacture our Immunity Booster capsules. (Isn’t it mesmerizing?)

    We hope you’re as excited as we are for the launching of all of our products. We have so much in store for you and your health!

    Oil and Fat Smoking Point Guide

    Oil and Fat Smoking Point Guide

    Oil and Fat Smoking Point Guide

    According to the American Oil Chemists’ Society a smoking point of an oil or fat is the temperature at which, under specific and defined conditions, an oil begins to produce a continuous bluish smoke that becomes clearly visible.  When this happens the fats start to break down. Thus releasing free radicals and toxins that can be harmful to you called “acrolein.” (That is that nasty burnt taste you’ve might experienced after burning dinner that one night. Thank goodness for pizza delivery!)

    On a recent blog post we discussed the dangers of cooking with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the importance of using a low smoke point oil and/or fat. Since then we’ve been asked on occasion which are the best to use. The hugest factor depends on the oil’s smoking point. Without knowing this factor finding a healthy oil can be daunting. Smoking points are so important! So, we’ve created the perfect Oil and Fat Smoking Point Guide based on temperatures for your reference.

    We hope you find this information helpful. Here at EarthNutri we don’t know you, but we consider you and your health very important to us — like you’re a part of our family. Please visit our other blogs for more great informative information on health and living life to the fullest!

    Cooking with Extra Virgin Olive Oil Can Be Dangerous To Your Health

    Cooking with Extra Virgin Olive Oil Can Be Dangerous To Your Health

    Cooking with extra virgin olive oil can be dangerous

     

    We have always been told that Olive Oil was the best and healthiest oil to use. After all, it’s high in monounsaturated fats and antioxidants that are able to lower “bad” cholesterol and raise “good” cholesterol levels. It also has the Omega oils that you need for a healthy nervous system and cardiovascular system. But did you know that cooking extra virgin olive oil at high heats can be dangerous?

    Cooking with Extra Virgin Olive Oil Can Be Dangerous

    Every oil or fat that you cook with has a smoking point. When oils reach temperatures over that smoking point it releases toxic smoke that also have carcinogenic (cancer causing) properties. This is because it causes it’s enzymes to be destroyed, proteins become carcinogenic, carbohydrates become caramelized and all of the vitamins and minerals lose their nutrients.

    Safe Ways to Use Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    Try using EVOO drizzled over vegetables for roasting or pan-frying. Blend it with your hummus or sauces for a smooth, delicious flavor with great health benefits!

    If you do decide to cook with EVOO be sure to not cook over 320º. If you do, be sure to choose a lighter, more refined olive oil with a higher smoke point. That way you can still benefit from all of the healthy benefits it has.

    Soluble Fiber vs. Insoluble Fiber

    Soluble Fiber vs. Insoluble Fiber

    Soluble Fiber vs. Insoluble Fiber – Both are Needed for Great Health

    Did you know that fiber does more than just keep your bowels regular? It helps with cholesterol levels, with weight loss, and keeps sugar levels in check.

    A more uncommon fact is that there are two types of fiber. 

    Soluble Fiber

    Food examples: Most Fruits, Nuts and Seeds, Beans/Lentils

    Weight Loss: Soluble Fiber helps with keep you feeling full while not packing a ton of calories.

    Healthy Bowel Movements: We all know about this one, but how does it work? Soluble fibers absorb moisture as it passes through the body. This bulks up your stool helping with regularity.

    Diabetes Protection: Since soluble fiber is so hard for the body to absorb, it doesn’t cause blood sugar spikes which can be unhealthy for those with Type 2 Diabetes or heart disease. If you have diabetes, ingesting soluble fiber can help keep your sugar levels under control.

    Heart Protection: Soluble fiber sticks to the cholesterol in your body and escorts them from the body. This helps reduce cholesterol levels, thus lowering the risk of heart disease.

    Insoluble Fiber

    Food examples: Most Vegetables and Whole Grains

    Great Digestion: Just like it’s counterpart, it’s another great source for regularity. This helps with bowel issues such as constipation and hemorrhoids. 

    Weight Loss: Just like soluble fiber, insoluble fiber helps keep you full which can play a key role in weight loss and cravings.

    Now that you know the basics of  Soluble Fiber vs. Insoluble Fiber you can see, both types of fiber have similar effects but both are needed for a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes reaching your daily fiber intake can be a task. Turning to all natural supplements can also help reach your goals and fill nutrient gaps. Luckily now you can get it from the best organic supplements by EarthNutri.

    The 411 on Fiber - 9 Facts for Healthy Living

    It’s so important to know the 411 on Fiber

    It’s crazy to think that something our body can’t fully digest can be so healthy. A high-fiber diet has been shown to prevent constipation and lower cholesterol levels. High-fiber foods also ten to have more nutrients and less calories. They also digest slowly which help keep us full. But that’s not all folks…

    According to the institute of medicine and the recommendations from the U.S. government 2015-2020 dietary guidelines we are supposed to be eating 25-30 grams per day and Americans are only eating half of that at 12-17 grams.

    Here is a list of all the facts you need to know to meet your health needs:

    • It helps you stay full longer
    • There are two types: Soluble and Insoluble (You need both types for good health)
    • It can only be found in plant based foods
    • Organic sources  are the best
    • Slowly increase fiber when adding to your diet
    • Helps manage diabetes
    • Too much can cause health issues cramping, malabsorption, constipation, and in the worst case, intestinal blockage
    • Creates good bacteria in the body
    • Men require more than women to maintain healthy weight
