Herbal Health Articles & Information


Preservatives Published: 7th May, 2012  
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. From human beings to carrots, every living thing has a natural lifespan. Though you may not appreciate having to bleach out your moldy Tupperware containers, decomposition is an essential component of the life cycle.

Unfortunately, in our race-to-the-finish modern culture, time is money. Traditional and natural methods of preservation take time, and it is simply more cost effective for most food companies to saturate their products with chemicals specifically designed to make your food last longer. Not only that, but odds are that your food has also been soaked in flavouring to camouflage its chemically altered molecular structure. Most chicken, vegetables and fruit flavours in processed foods have been flavoured to restore their taste after being extensively processed and preserved. Even the produce aisle isn’t safe; you may think you’re being healthy by selecting that shiny red apple from your grocer, but odds are that it’s been coated in a thin layer of wax to keep it attractive on its cross-continental journey.

As disturbing as this may be, it pales next to the comparative effects of chemical food preservatives on the body. Though the food industry is regulated, the consequences of additives vary from mild allergic reactions to the stimulation of cancerous cell production. The refining procedure also means that highly processed foods actually drain your body of essential nutrients, forcing your body to burn its precious vitamins and minerals in an attempt to break down food that simply does not want to be broken down. The result is a weakened immune system, easily prone to fatigue and disease.

Buyer beware. Many companies are trying to circumvent negative PR consequences by claiming their products are “natural”. But consider this: your deliciously “natural” vanilla ice cream was most likely flavoured using castoreum, a yellow secretion extracted from the all-natural anal glands of beavers. Other common mass-produced natural flavourings include crushed beetles and bone char. Mmm, yummy.

Xtreme Herbs does not condone any unnatural, chemical, or artificial means of preservation. Most chemically-addled foods preserve the lifespan of the food, at the cost of the body ingesting it. Our goal is the opposite. We support transparency and recognizable ingredients. Grown in their native soil, our herbs work with in harmony with your body to unlock energy and longevity.

Living closer to nature has never been more vital…literally. If rising rates of cancer and obesity are any indication, our bodies are craving a healthy solution. Fortunately, nature’s ready to fight back with a vengeance. Counter the draining effects of preservatives with an all-natural cup of yerba mate, and watch your mind come to life. Or flush out years’ worth of built-up toxins from your organs with speedwell tea.

Whatever remedy your body is thirsting for, Xtreme Herbs is proud to offer an all-natural solution and a perfectly comprehensive ingredients list. From stimulants to relaxants, we offer balance for your life in its purest, most natural form.
