    Healing Honey

    Healing Honey

    Local, raw honey has innumerable health benefits, including helping with pollen allergies. But did you know that honey fraud is rampant and that most grocery store honey contains very little - if any - honey at all!
    In this episode, Nicole & Christine chat with local beekeeper, Suzie Ravier, about honey, health, propolis, bee pollen, and the dwindling bees that make it.
    How do we protect our pollinators?
    Why is honey so good for us?
    How is it made and how do we find real honey?
    Learn about all this and more!
    To view the shocking video on honey fraud that we discuss, "Produits de M***e", click here (in French):

    Super Spirulina!

    Super Spirulina!

    Episode 2: Super Spirulina with Damien Stephan
    The protein of the future and the most nutrition-packed food on the planet with the highest concentration of protein and iron of any food, it’s no wonder NASA and ESA are studying these blue-green algae for farming on Mars. We discuss all the nutritional benefits of consuming spirulina, including how it’s the planet's highest source of protein and iron, numerous amino acids and potent antioxidants. Spirulina is the true fountain of youth!
    We interview Damien Stephan of “Spirulina Côte d’Azur”, a farmer in Grasse, France who makes the most delicate, pleasant-tasting spirulina pellets either of us have ever tasted. Learn what it is, how it's made and what it can do for your energy levels.
    Remember, this is purely educational and you should always speak with your doctor before starting a new diet regime.
    Where to buy Spirulina Côte d'Azur
