Maldon the Salt of Life

W

hat is the one ingredient chefs and food lovers worldwide would be lost without? Salt, of course! No other single condiment enhances the natural flavors of foods like the touch of high quality finishing salt. Did you know that salt is an essential element in the diet of humans, animals, and even many plants? Throughout history, salt has been such a vital component of life for civilizations around the world that it’s been featured in countless stories, fables, and fairy tales. Salt encompasses much of the history of Europe since Roman times. In the UK, particularly in Essex, salt reigns supreme. Charles Dickens penned a Victorian era Ghost Story “To be taken with a grain of Salt.” Decades later, George Gissing wrote “The Salt of the Earth,” a phrase long used to describe a person of solid character. Indeed, it’s difficult to imagine our daily experience without this cultural staple, especially when it comes to the meals that enrich our lives. As with many of life’s finest gifts, however, quality is often more important than quantity. Maldon Sea Salt beautifully illustrates this point. This 130-year old, family owned company is the #1 sea salt in the UK with good reason. Chefs and foodies in over 50 countries have helped make Maldon Sea Salt a world renowned brand because they simply won’t do without it. Why is this unique finishing salt such a time honored treasure? That’s partly due to its purity, which lends a rich, mellow flavor and remarkable delicacy. Maldon Salt is a totally natural sea salt, drawn from the marshes of the Blackwater River in Essex, and produced by hand following old artisanal methods. It is free from the bitter after-taste often associated with lesser

quality salts. Its characteristic clean, fresh taste enhances the flavor of all natural and fine foods. You will also notice a distinctive texture, soft enough to gently grind in your fingers. The characteristic pyramid shaped crystals of Maldon Salt are unique and recognized internationally as the world’s finest. For 130 years, the distinctive shape and quality of Maldon Salt’ flakes has been a company trademark. This culinary gem is regularly featured in national cooking magazines such as Bon Appétit, Cooking Magazine, and Martha Stewart Living, on cooking shows such as The Iron Chef and recommended by chefs such as Nigel Slater, Jamie Oliver, Emeril Lagasse, and Delia Smith. Maldon smoked sea salt is equally worthy of merit, robustly enhancing the natural flavors of meat, fish and poultry. Using traditional smoking methods to gently “cold smoke” the salt crystals, it has a rich, distinctive ‘salty’ taste, combined with a deliciously subtle smoky nuance that adds sophistication to your favorite dishes. You’ll find it a versatile culinary ally for shellfish, meats, sauces, salsas, soups and marinades. The people of Maldon have been bringing recipes to life and balancing flavor since 1882, and will continue to do so for generations to come. Culinary luxury or daily necessity? Unquestionably both.

ver wonder how your food is produced? There’s a growing desire among many socially conscious people to use their grocery dollar to support good causes and fair practices. One company offers an inspiring example of how we can nourish ourselves and promote a better world. Employee owned since 1978, Once Again Nut Butter has worked to develop and support fair trade small organic coops and farms, as well as educational, medical and employment programs in Nicaragua. Their annual donations provide assistance to impoverished Americans, disaster victims, and community support efforts. For over 20 years, Once Again has been developing Jubilee House Community, a charity expanding sustainable organic farming in Nicaragua. Started with sesame seeds planted on a four-acre test plot in 1995, their tahini is a cooperative effort between worker-owners in Nunda, New York and worker-owners in rural Nicaragua. Today, sales from Once Again sesame seed tahini help to sustain 11 separate Nicaraguan coops supporting 2000 families! Since the climate allows three growing seasons, an organic cotton crop grows between sesame rotations. Once Again provided equipment for Jubilee House to develop a sewing cooperative based on this cotton crop. When hurricane Mitch devastated Nicaraguan economy and farmland, they provided micro-loans to restore fields and re-establish the crop rotation. The quality of small farms, organic agriculture and the power of cooperation results in the nations’ #1 best-selling organic sesame tahini. You embrace these values with every jar of Once Again Nut Butter. Why not spread integrity? Visit: www.onceagainnutbutter.com

any people hope for a long life—ideally with a generous span of healthy, productive years. How can you increase your chances of aging gracefully? Research suggests that genetics determines only about one third of how we age, leaving two thirds of the influence up to our lifestyle choices. Certainly, maintaining a healthy weight, staying active and fit, and eating a diet based on fresh, whole foods all play key roles. While these behaviors lay a prime foundation, there are other natural ways to get an edge against premature aging. When it comes to stimulating your body’s own regenerative potential, you now have a highly effective ally in the supplement aisle: Health Logics BioCell Collagen. This patented, clinically proven dietary supplement works to promote both active joints and younger looking skin. Collagen, the glue-like substance in your connective tissues, supports healthy skin, joints, tendons and ligaments. Hyaluronic acid (HA), a hydrating sponge-like substance, is critical for well lubricated joints and smooth, youthful skin. With age, collagen and HA production slow down, and as your reserves become depleted, you may see an increase in wrinkles and stiff joints. Fortunately, adding Health Logics BioCell Collagen to your daily regimen is clinically proven to benefit both your joints and your complexion—naturally. BioCell Collagen also offers relief to those suffering from osteoarthritis (OA) and general joint discomfort. In a recent study, 80 participants with a chronic history of joint pain experienced a significant reduction in pain and stiffness. Here’s to healthy longevity! Visit www.health-logics.com

o you suffer from sinus trouble? If your nasal tissues are swollen from low humidity, environmental triggers, a cold, overuse of decongestants, or other nasal irritations, sinus passages may become obstructed. If your sinuses are unable to drain properly, the result can be discomfort, pain, or infection. If you have struggled with sinus problems, you might be surprised at just how beneficial smart, natural prevention tactics can be. The most effective natural strategy for many is the XLEAR® Sinus Care System. Xlear (pronounced “clear”) is a soothing and moisturizing all-natural nasal spray that promotes upper respiratory health. The Xlear Nasal Spray line contains xylitol, purified water, salt, and grapefruit seed extract as a preservative. Used in daily hygiene, this xylitol nasal spray hydrates and helps clean sinus and nasal passages, washing away airborne contaminates, irritants, and pollutants that might otherwise irritate or infect these delicate tissues. Xylitol is a natural sweetener derived from the fibrous portions of plants and is naturally produced in our bodies—but this sugar is unique in that it has significant health benefits. Research suggests that safe, all-natural Xlear helps promote better upper respiratory health when used on a regular basis. And unlike many prescription or medicated sprays with unwanted side effects, daily usage of Xlear Sinus Care Spray is non-addictive and will not damage tissues. Xlear is safe for infants, yet strong enough for adults to soothe the most stubborn and irritated sinus conditions. For optimal wellness, the choice is clear! Visit www.xlear.com
