Prebiotics, in the form of chicory root, high in inulin and a natural prebiotic, supports the growth of probiotics, a group of 'friendly' bacteria that help with gut health and in turn, immune system health. The HEMPIES includes live spores of B. coagulans MTCC 5856 strain at a strength of 1.47 billion CFU per 5 grams of mix.
Spirulina is a genuine superfood, and can be considered an alternative food for vitamin supplements.* It's a rich source of micro and macronutrients such as protein, vitamins, gamma-linolenic acid, phycocyanin and sulfated polysaccharides, and has a cell wall consisting of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats that are easily digested so that it has more nutritional content than other vegetable food sources. Nettle, another superfood, is rich in chlorophyll, trace minerals and vitamins.
Papaya extracts and papaya-associated phytochemicals possess anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties. Papaya contains a wide range of bioactive secondary metabolites (eg alkaloids, phenolics, flavonoids, carotenoids, tannins, saponins) and proteolytic enzymes (papain and chymopapain). It's also rich in lutein, a type carotenoid.
Beef bones from Australian cattle are boiled under high pressure for more than six hours to extract all the nutrients; the broth is then dried using innovative low temperature processing. They're packed with trace minerals and a great taste!
Sweet potato, pumpkin and kale: together, these Australian-sourced fruit and veg make a powerful mix. The orange veg are rich in betacarotene, a precursor of vitamin A and a powerful antioxidant. Kale is also rich in betacarotene as well as lutein, and other vitamins and minerals.
