Jerusalem artichoke has high levels of inulin. Inulin is a soluble fibre which belongs to a group of carbohydrates known as fructans. Unlike most carbohydrates, inulin is non-digestible. It acts as a prebiotic. Through the natural fermentation process, it becomes a healthy intestinal micro flora that promotes digestion and boosts immunity. Jerusalem artichoke also contains thiamine (vitamin B1) and minerals. Thiamine is essential for the healthy functioning of the nervous system and muscles. Minerals, such as iron and copper, provide an energy kick and support hair growth.
Add 2-3 teaspoons of Jerusalem artichoke powder to yogurt, soup, porridge or smoothie. We recommend starting with smaller quantities and building up to this. As a prebiotic, it can take a little while for the stomach to adjust to the higher levels of dietary fibre.
Erbology... one look at their products and after reading their story you'll understand why Erbology products are stocked at Therapy Organics... it sounds like a childhood made in heaven! Siblings and founders of Erbology Victor and Irina tell their story:
"The Bessarabian countryside – a hidden gem in Eastern Europe - is probably not the place most people would look for inspiration. But the childhood summers we spent there were ones where we breathed in the scents of plums, quince, and goji berries that our grandma scattered to dry over unfolded newspapers. We hid behind sacks overflowing with walnuts. We played in the milk thistle fields and climbed our favourite black cherry trees. And while we played, our babushka would feed sunroot leaves and amaranth to the goats, pick berries for us, or sip her favourite St John's wort, or dogwood tea.
It was idyllic, a place seemingly lost in time. And since we haven't yet worked out how to recreate the past, we decided to at least try to tap into the wholesome living we once enjoyed - and to share it with you. Erbology is more than just a business. We want to feel inspired, and to inspire you to embrace healthy, happy living that nourishes the mind, body and soul.
To do that, we feel it's also important to ensure Erbology has a positive impact on the world around us. We work closely with independent, organic farmers. Our products are free from chemicals and additives. Our oils are cold pressed, our juices gently pasteurised to preserve their nutrients. Our dried foods are raw, vegan and deliciously good."
