Wheatgrass is harvested as a young plant, providing a nutrient dense source of chlorophyll. Unlike other green superfoods, it grows sustainably in all environments, including Canada!

FLAX OIL: SUSTAINABLE OMEGAS

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are good fats that we cannot make on our own and must be obtained through diet. Thankfully, flax grows readily in Canada and provides both omega-3s and 6s to support skin, heart and brain health. Flax oil should never be used in cooking, so it’s best added to salads and smoothies or yogurt.
