Arsenic Found in Tap Water

Aug 16th 2013

What’s Lurking in Your Tap Water?

Did you know that there are high levels of arsenic in US tap water?1 Recent studies performed at Dartmouth University revealed that long term exposure to lower doses of arsenic “reduces the ability of cells to function properly, and may contribute to the development of diabetes, cancer, vascular disease, and lung disease.”2 Arsenic is no joke!

A Superfood Solution

Nature has the answer! The mineral and antioxidant selenium has been scientifically proven to "have potential to mitigate As [arsenic] toxicity."3 What plant food has the highest amount of selenium on the planet? Unpasteurized, raw, organic Brazil Nuts, with 384% of the RDA for selenium in a ½ ounce serving. In plain terms, that means just three Brazil nuts eaten daily will give you 100% of your daily recommended selenium.

However, not all Brazil nuts have the same nutritional benefits. Our Brazil Nuts are 100% raw to ensure that the powerful nutrients and enzymes remain intact, and certified organic and non-GMO so you know you’re getting the purest product available!

"These are very nice Brazil nuts. I had a bad experience with a bag of commercial nuts over a decade ago, and had since avoided Brazil nuts. I am so glad that these organic, raw Brazil nuts were the first I dove into after so long, as their taste and texture was a completely different experience. Tender and crisp, fresh and crunchy, these Brazil nuts reminded me quite a bit of fresh young coconut, and their fine, papery skin added no bitterness to their delightful, lively flavor. There was a recipe on the bag for using in smoothies that I am looking forward to trying out. Ordering my second bag now." - Elizabeth

"These Brazil nuts have always been tasty, and satisfying in texture. Obviously very high quality and I love that they are raw. When compared to bulk bins at health stores the quality is black and white." - The Warden

"I never really liked Brazil nuts. I always avoided them in the mixed nuts my mom gets. I heard that they were a great source of selenium so I decided to give them a try. These are delicious! Not rancid tasting like most Brazil nuts. I will definitely be buying these again. Much tastier than a selenium supplement!" - Kelcey
