Local Avena Events

Welcome to the Summer Edition of our News & Views. Summer has to be most favourite time of the year, and it’s easy to see why! Long days and warm nights make for the best time to be outside and enjoy nature; if that’s home gardens, wild national parks, or just a perfect Sunday drive. It’s like we naturally gravitate to use this season for nature-meditation. Just ‘taking in’ our surroundings and beauty of the world. Take the time to focus on yourself. One way that’s not as easy with the more fabulous days is by getting enough sleep. So, don’t forget to sleep this summer! We know it’s harder to rest well when it’s warm out and bright out, so make the extra effort count! Next to sleep is WATER. Most of us don’t get enough water in our bodies on a regular day, but with extra movement and activity combined with the summer sun, it becomes critical! Hydration should remain a pivotal focus year-round, and summer is no exception if you want to spice it up to try adding some fruits or berries to add flavour. The important thing is to find something to appreciate and look at with gratitude. Those rainy days, they’re okay because it means rain and moisture for farmers, it makes the trees and grass green. Don’t forget there’s always that rainbow. Find JOY this summer even if it’s in something small and it will carry forward and blossom

Avena Updates: Thank you to all of our loyal Avena people; we’re going to give you a little peek at some of the changes that are in the pipeline and some that are almost here! *Herb Cocktail Name: Everything is ready and waiting, our next shipment of Herb Cocktail will arrive *officially* as HC, so get ready. New name but still the same great product! *Superfood: It’s getting time to say goodbye to a dear old friend. We’ve produced our last batch of the Superfood as we know it. We are in the development phase of a similar product, but it will be different. So, it’s both a sad farewell and a warm hello for our Superfood and yet an unnamed green based product. *New product on the horizon (Iodine): Coming soon we have a delightful liquid mineral - Iodine! A vital mineral for health that can be lacking in many of our diets and lives. Avena is hoping to have this product on our shelves within just a few months, so stay tuned for updates. *FedEx Ground: Guess what, we can now regularly ship via FedEx Ground! Previously we were only able to offer this to online customers, but NOW it’s live in our regular database and available to all our Canadian Customers.

Dear Avena

I’ve heard a lot about Lyme’s disease, and with summer approaching I’m worried about camping and hiking and being exposed. Any suggestions?

Hi there, fantastic question and one we’ve been getting a few times. So, Lyme’s is possible with bites from infected ticks, it’s bacterial in nature. To keep it simple, we can talk about what to do before or right after. To keep your immune system high, a diet low in processed sugar is ideal. Keeping things as high raw and fresh as possible is suggested. There are also products that can help your immune system; these would be our Probiotics, Enzymes with Protease (Enhanced, Super Digestive and Induvial Enzymes). Antioxidants that are immune system boosting, is our E-Fusion and Electric C are great as well.

“The stronger your natural immune system baseline is, the more significant advantage you’ll have at any time. Not just when you’re worried about the outside world.” If you are concerned as you’ve come in contact with a tick, the first steps are vital. You can boost your healthy bacteria through probiotics and at the same time, include foods/items that are naturally antibacterial such as coconut oil or silver. You can use these tools to help limit any potential exposure and minimize any risks. If you feel you do might Lyme’s the best way to verify is to get a test through the doctor to confirm Lyme’s (not all organizations recognize Lyme’s; so check your local governing body). The primary method through the medical field for working with Lyme’s Disease by using strong antibiotics. This is one way to

Antioxidants Where can you find Antioxidants? What are they? Have you ever heard of Antioxidants'? They're everywhere! We're seeing them added to foods and all of these other supplements and it's hard even to understand what they are, or what they do. The most significant boost to keep it simple is they help fight against free radicals. So maybe instead of learning what we're struggling with, let's first look at the opponent and what we're fighting against. What are free radicals? Free radicals are a naturally produced byproduct of our body functioning, mostly from mitochondria. Just like in many chemical reactions when the engine of the body starts running (mitochondria), then some exhaust happens. This is where those free radicals come in. Your body naturally and consistently creates these reactive items. These free radicals if left unchecked, can damage DNA, proteins and other membranes. Leading to more significant health challenges that build and build if left unchecked. (Essentially, it's the slow ageing process of our bodies.) Where do you find free radicals? Predominantly they'll be cruising through the bloodstream, and they're just waiting to encounter something to pair or bond with; what we don't want is them attacking healthy cells in their attempt. Don't think they're only in your blood though; these pesky pals can be found in any of the body where there's cellular metabolism, aka anywhere (blood, bones, nerves, muscles).

Our bodies will naturally produce a small about of antioxidants, enough that in a perfect world with no outside influences should be able to maintain balance. What happens though in reality isn't always what happens in books and paper. There is constant outside noise that disrupts and tip the scales in the wrong direction. Things like lousy air (smoking), stress, other health problems can all pile together to make the workload too much for your body to handle solo. That's why we can add in antioxidants conventionally through food and supplements. Fresh food is the best place to get your antioxidants, look no further than fruits (and berries). The more colourful the food, the better the chances of high nutrient value. Berries, in general, are going to have higher antioxidants per serving, but there are other sources too from the plant kingdom tea. Some leafy greens have natural antioxidants that can be consumed through tea (green tea or matcha). • • • • • • •

How do Antioxidants relate to ageing? The roaming free radicals don't only affect our cellular DNA but the cell membranes as well. These cell walls should be naturally flexible and fluid. What can happen is the more exposed these cells are too reactive Oxygen the stiffer they become, making them less porous and slowing down their overall function. This is where the ageing comes in; because when the fluidity of the cell hardens, everything begins to slow, and production and communication are affected. One of the best ways to slow down the ageing process from the inside out is through antioxidants! With food based and supplemental based - we don’t want our bodies to stop running altogether which means there will always be cellular ‘waste’ (RNS & ROS) the idea is to neutralize them before

How Antioxidants Help If maximum health or just general wellness is our goal, antioxidants are a crucial piece to be used. It may seem like a pawn on the chessboard, but a useful tool it is! They clean the debris caused by the general function of our system and work at prevention of that same debris (free radicals) from doing more considerable damage, especially to our DNA.

July Sales

Unchecked the prolonged exposure of these free radicals can alter our health for the long term. In damaging our DNA repeatedly, it can fundamentally change the human body.

Super Digestive Enzymes: While there are only four antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase, glutathione reductase, and catalase), one happens to be in our Super Digestive Enzymes Catalase. This is a specific enzyme that is classified as a SUPER antioxidant! It’s a potent antioxidant, and this enzyme works explicitly through the blood to scavenge and clean free radicals.

RP3: A food-based antioxidant in its purest form. The RP3 contains just raw foods mixed, but they're all naturally high ingredients, especially the raw cacao.

Let’s go Deeper in to Vitamin E

August Sales

To begin, your body creates two types of reactive byproducts Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and Reactive Nitrogen Species (RNS). It's these two compounds that antioxidants target in their role (even though one is listed as Nitrogen). Vitamin E has many different 'types' within its group; it splits into multiple ways. The most prevalent and recognized of which is Alpha Tocopherol. This type of Vitamin E works specifically against the ROS and leaving the RNS alone. If you were only to consume more significant of Alpha-Tocopherol you could leave your body open to DNA damage and inflammation from the RNS (if left unchecked or countered with a different antioxidant). Gamma Tocopherol, a lesser known type of Vitamin E, works primarily against the RNS and conversely doesn't do much for the ROS. This is precisely why you should get a VARIETY of Vitamin E's from different foods and a spectrum of antioxidants as well. If you focus all your efforts on one problem AREA (ROS/RNS) through high amounts of a single nutrient, you can leave yourself vulnerable to the other. Just as in the natural world you rarely if ever find isolated ingredients as they’re unbalanced, the idea of supplementing with only Alpha Tocopherol will put you at a disadvantage. When Avena was seeking a well-rounded product and the E-Fusion came up we knew there was huge potential. Raw rice bran is an excellent source of Vitamin E, and not just Alpha Tocopherol but multiple types.

When you combine this powerful blend of raw rice bran our E-Fusion has in total over 109 different types of antioxidants. Creating a effective and broad product that’s not only a great source of natural Vitamin E but a treasure trove of antioxidants!

Summer 2019 Edition| 8

Derived from unique rice bran, E-Fusion is an excellent wholefood complex delivering Vitamin E and amino acids and is formulated to promote energy, health, healing, and longevity. With an array of amino acids, carbohydrates, and fat—all in perfectlybalanced ratios. This great-tasting, plant-based, 100% RAW whole food provides a variety of naturally occurring essential nutrients including antioxidants, vitamins, pro-oxidant nutrients, phytonutrients, and tocotrienols. E-Fusion is the most highly and easily absorbable vitamin E. With an abundance of over 109 naturally occurring antioxidants (many found exclusively in rice bran) E-Fusion helps you heal muscle after intense workouts, injury, trauma, and boost the vitality of your internal organs. Rice bran is the core of E-Fusion, should be classified as a modern-day superfood! Combined with the RP3, it’s a perfect mix of whole food with a dense protein source.

Product Comparison

People with liver disorders such as, Hepatitis A,B,C, Hypoglycemia, and Diabetes. As well as those who experience Lack of Coordination, Poor Eye Sight, Muscle Weakness, I.B.S, ADHD, and ADD. Research has shown Vitamin-E helps stimulate the body’s natural ability to improve internal tissue health.

An ingredient often labelled as evil and misused. Salt is, in reality, critical for health! The difference is that we need the right amount of salt, and it’s a fine line. Too much salt can lead to health problems: persistent thirst, swelling in strange places, frequent urination, regular mild headaches/foggy brain, high blood pressure, stomach ulcers, kidney problems (stones). Too little salt can also lead to health problems: insulin resistance problems, weight problems, kidney problems, elevated blood cholesterol and high blood pressure and high heart rate. What makes the salt balance so hard is the sodium/ salt added into processed foods for flavouring and ‘enhancement’ but industry over-uses salt. On the flip side, when you begin to eat healthier and remove a lot of those same processed foods, your body still needs good salt. (This is probably why celery juice is so favourite nowadays, celery is naturally high in salt.) It’s just one more area to keep a watch on to make sure your salt levels are right where they should be, your hydration and cellular support require it!

7.5 cups of Water 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon of Avena’s Pristine Sea Salt 1/2 cup of your desired sweetener (Honey, Maple)

Add all the ingredients to a blender and serve. Recipe makes 2L of a tasty drink to help you stay hydrated and up your electrolytes.

Perfect for after works outs, high-intensity exercise, not feeling well after the flu, or prolonged exposure in the sun like gardening

Water: Without it we have nothing! As soon as you feel thirsty your body is already dehydrated! More than half of our bodies are made of water. We need water to live! Water is more important than food, you can go days without nourishment but you can’t survive very long without water. It is critical to good health to replenish your water constantly. The best way to do this is to resupply your body with water regularly. The old standard of 8 x 8oz glasses doesn’t work for everyone. The amount of water you drink should be as unique to you as the rest of your diet and lifestyle. Find out how much your body requires to maintain itself, then adjust for any activity. Pure water will hydrate you the best, liquids like juice, soups or broths may nourish, but will be interpreted by the body as food, whereas pure water doesn’t require digestion. Also, ensure that you are drinking quality water. Poor water can do as much damage as too little water—always remember your water FACTS.

How to Measure your minimum water consumption levels Step #1: Figure out your body weight (lbs) Step #2: Multiply your body weight by 15 Step #3: Add activity level water additions Step #4: If detoxifying ADD 1 Liter of water Step #4: Combine your Step 2, 3 & 4 together for the total ml you should be drinking per day.
