News:Group Buy-Green Pasture, Weekly Special-From Mimi's Mountain Home and more


Hi Everyone,

GROUP BUY: GREEN PASTURE
This weekend we will have our Group Buy for *Green Pasture products. All currently available products (as of today) will be listed on the market site tomorrow for ordering. We are limited to the number of FCLO Blend Gels we can order this month so once they are sold out they will not be available until our next group buy next month.

Infused Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is their newest product and contains organic virgin coconut oil, fermented cod liver oil, high vitamin butter oil, and skate liver oil. If the FCLO Blend gel is sold out, this is a great affordable alternative. I sampled the cinnamon flavor at the WAPF conference and it actually tastes good.

The prices include our discounted group buy price, shipping, fees and taxes. This will NOT be available for pick up at the next pick up. I will place our group order on Monday and expect it will be available by the April 30th pick up. This is a prepaid preorder, so payment is expected this Tuesday. If you are only ordering Green Pasture products this week, please drop a check in the mail or online payment on the co-op market website.

If you are new to the co-op and/or Fermented Cod Liver Oil, I have a section at the bottom of this weblog that discusses the benefits of this amazing product.

THIS WEEK’S SPECIAL-FROM MIMI’S MOUNTAIN HOME:
From Mimi’s Mountain Home is offering their Laundry Soap and Fabric Softener for $6.50; try it out for *only 8 cents a load! This week only! Limit ONE set per customer please! Multiple orders will not be fulfilled.

Even when it’s not a weekly special it’s a fabulous deal. From Mimi’s Mountain Home laundry soap is 100% natural and in 32 fluid ounces, you get 40 loads of laundry. That’s only 14 cents per load! If you add their non-flammable fabric softener to that, you will spend 28 cents a load. The laundry detergent that comes in a big orange bottle in the grocery stores costs 29 cents a load (only if it’s on sale), and if you add the bear’s flammable fabric softener for 25 cents a load, you will spend 53 cents a load.

It’s spring cleaning time so consider From Mimi’s Mountain Home for your non-toxic, natural cleaning needs. All their products work great and the glass cleaner is the BEST I’ve ever used!

CUSTOM ROASTING AVAILABLE FROM JAVAGENESIS:
JavaGenesis Roasting, our coffee roaster for the co-op, offers custom roasting. When you order, just send a note to them and let them know your special preference and they will roast your beans accordingly every time you order. You can’t get that from a grocery store coffee!

GREEN PASTURE INFO:
Here’s some information about Fermented Cod Liver Oil and its health benefits:

Why choose Green Pasture Products?

•Whole Food Form
•Wild, as Provided by Nature
•Natural fatty acid complex, nothing removed or changed
•Full, deep range of Vitamins A, D, E, K; CoQ enzymes; and other Quinones
•Non-industrialized & Historical Processing Methods
•Clean, Pure, and Extensive Third Party Tested (NO PCBs, Lead, Mercury, Arsenic or other Heavy Metals)
•Family owned business
Why is FCLO better than regular fish oil? •Green Pasture uses wild caught cod in and around the Arctic region (A substantial amount of today’s cod liver oil is produced from farmed fish)
•FCLO higher in nutrients than regular fish oil
•Double the amounts of vitamin A and D as regular cod liver oil
•Goes rancid less quickly
•No synthetic vitamins added
•Most salmon oil has one-fifth the potency of cod liver oil
•1/2 TBS of FCLO provides the amount of elongated omega-3 fatty acids found in twelve 1,000 mg fish oil capsules

What are the benefits of Fermented Cod Liver Oil?
•Rich in Vitamins A & D which are crucial nutrients that are lacking in most modern diets
•Vitamin A- vital for a healthy immune system and healthy vision and is important for proper development in children
•Vitamin D- improves insulin function, protective effect against multiple sclerosis,
•May help prevent flu (lack of vitamin D synthesis during the winter as one explanation for high rates of influenza infection during cold season)
•In women, higher levels of vitamin D from cod liver oil improve bone mineral density
•EPA- Eicosapentaenoic acid (Omega 3 Fatty Acid) anti-inflammatory and necessary for prostaglandin production
•DHA -docasahexaenoic acid, a nutrient absolutely vital for a healthy brain and nervous system
•Fights inflammation associated with heart disease and heals the lining of the arteries
•Reduces the size of atheromas clogging arteries and improves blood vessel function
•Studies have shown cod liver oil can protect against diseases like cancer and leukemia
•Effective in treating arthritis
•Helps maintain soft skin and minimize wrinkles

How does it benefit my child’s health?
From conception through adolescence, cod liver oil can provide developing children with what they need to thrive. Mothers who take cod liver oil during pregnancy and nursing protect their children from disease while providing them with important nutrients and fatty acids. For growing children, cod liver oil is important for healthy bones and teeth, as well as preventing common problems like ADHD. It’s also an excellent treatment for diaper rash and other skin conditions if used topically.

Synergy of Butter Oil and Cod Liver Oil
Research shows that butter oil and cod liver oil, taken together, provide complementary factors leading to proper essential fatty acid balance. High-vitamin butter oil contains arachidonic acid (AA), an omega-6 fatty acid, while cod liver oil is rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), an omega-3. Moreover, the saturated fatty acids in the butter oil promote efficient utilization of the unsaturated fatty acids in the cod liver oil. Finally, butter oil contains a broad and deep range of important quinones including Vitamin K, E and CoQ enzymes while cod liver oil is rich in Vitamin A and D.

Green Pasture’s High-Vitamin Butter Oil is extracted from dairy milk produced by Guernsey and Devon cows (high butterfat producers) that graze exclusively on irrigated grass in the northern Great Plains. This specific combination of climate and irrigation produces a rapidly growing specialized forage, ensuring optimal levels of Activator X as discovered by Dr. Price. Activator X and other nutrients are then further concentrated by putting the butterfat through a specialized low-temperature centrifuge process

Here is a link to an article about the benefit of cod liver oil and why it’s best taken with a high vitamin butter oil http://www.westonaprice.org/cod-liver-oil .

I’ve been taking FLCO since October 2011 and I can honestly say that I have seen an improvement in my own health. My hair and nails are stronger than they’ve ever been. My hair hasn’t been this thick since my last pregnancy 6 years ago. My skin feels and looks better. I usually have small bumps on my upper arms and they have virtually disappeared. My hormone level seems more even and no mood swings. One member told me her vision has improved since taking FCLO. My son thinks it’s helped him learn how to read! He loves it and actually requests it. My daughter, on the other hand, takes it only because she knows it’s good for her.

If you have a testimony you’d like to share, please let me know. I’d love to know how others in our co-op have seen the benefits of taking this wonderful product!

Have a blessed weekend,
Nora
