I’ve been making this for almost two decades- herbal gomasio is an amazing way to get trace minerals, healthy fats & proteins into our bodies. My amazing blend consists of all organically cultivated and ethically wild crafted ingredients: dulse, kelp, milk thistle seeds, flax seeds, toasted sesame seeds, freshly ground white and black peppercorns, a little sea salt*, and moringa. I keep it in a jar on our dining table and we use it on almost everything! My children all love it- my four year old will eat it straight! We add it to eggs, salads, soups, oatmeal, whatever dinner is- anything really! It has a nice nutty and slightly salty flavor to it- it's an <excellent> and healthier substitute for salt!!
Milk thistle is known for its antioxidant and anti inflammatory properties, and a great source of glutathione. Glutathione is one of the body’s most important and potent antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that reduce oxidative stress by combating free radicals in the body.
Sesame seeds are high in vitamin E, boosting the natural antioxidant content. It also contains Vitamin K, magnesium, copper, calcium, iron, zinc, and vitamin B6! In Ayurveda, chewing sesame seeds is recommended for teeth health!
Seaweed is known for being nourishing to the endocrine, circulatory and immune system. It’s loaded with a wide range of essential nutrients, enzymes, amino acids, minerals, trace elements, and vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K.
Flax seeds are amazing, full of essential fatty acids, fiber, protein, and lignans (which is a plant hormone that is a powerful anti-cancer)! They have been observed to help lower blood pressure and balance out cholesterol as well.
Such a super nourishing addition to any food you make. Forget synthetic supplements, this is the way to go!
