RAW foods like live fruits, vegetables, plants, and herbs are unaltered and unprocessed from their natural state and uncooked, which means they are not exposed to heat above 118ºF.

Benefit of RAW Foods:

RAW foods have all of their natural, life-supporting nutrients intact. The process of cooking foods destroys valuable enzymes and other nutrients that are essential for maximum absorption and utilization of the food consumed. All foods provide some nutrition, but RAW foods provide higher nutrient levels.

RAW foods from nature provide the complete collection of vitamins, minerals and co-factors necessary to fuel our bodies properly. These co-factors, including probiotics and enzymes contained in RAW foods aid in the digestion process of breaking down foods efficiently and in the assimilation process of turning nutrients into life-force fuel for the body.

Those that choose a raw food diet are noted to experience improvements in their general physical and mental well-being, including increased energy, weight loss, detoxification, slowing of the aging process, and a sturdier immune system that better resists and recovers from disease. They also report becoming more conscious of their bodies and even spiritual improvement. People adding more raw nutrition into their diets are also reporting many of these same type of health benefits.

By eating more live, RAW foods, we are able to raise our vibrational levels and strengthen our life-force energy. By raising our vibratory levels, we can be more ‘in tune’ physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually with ourselves, with others and with nature.RAW Foods Raise our Vibration & Strengthen our Life Force:

All objects (live or dead) are energy and hold a particular vibrational level. Lifeless objects tend to resonate at a lower frequency vibration, whereas live objects resonate at higher frequencies of vibration. Dead, processed foods have a lower level of vibration and life force, so they provide less life-force energy and tend to lower our vibrational levels. By eating more live, RAW foods, we are able to raise our vibrational levels and strengthen our life-force energy. By raising our vibratory levels, we can become more ‘in tune’ physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually with ourselves, with others and with nature.

RAW Vitamins & Supplements

Most of us are not able to acquire all of our essential nutrients from our diets alone. Even the healthiest of diets lack vital nutrients that can compromise our optimal health and vitality. Part of this is due to the lack of quality produce in our modern world. Since the evolution of modern agriculture, the nutrient values of living foods has declined from lack of nutrients in the soil (lack of proper crop rotations), chemical fertilization, pesticides, water pollution and genetically modified foods. Once the food leaves the farm it is often subjected to preserving, irradiating, heating and treatments that change the nature of the food. Eating RAW and organic foods is extremely helpful but it can still be difficult to ensure we are getting proper nutrition in every meal. It is also time-consuming to make sure every meal we eat is as nutritious and life-supporting as possible.

Also vegans (those that eat no meat or dairy), vegetarians (those that do not eat meat), and those with other diet restrictions have certain nutritional deficiencies caused by their diet.

RAW vitamins and supplements that are derived from RAW, whole-food created nutrients can help fill our nutritional void. These types of supplements and vitamins are untreated, unadulterated and uncooked and are naturally cultivated – similar to the process of growing plants. In nature, plants transform inorganic materials into useful and bioavailable nutrients through the process of photosynthesis. This same type of cultivation process is used with RAW, cultured vitamin supplements.
