Cacao is, by far, one of the most powerful plants known to man. It has more antioxidants than just about anything else. And it’s a heart food, packed with magnesium and natural chemicals to brighten your mood and build your love within.
An acorn, derived from the oak tree, is more like a grain than a nut. Native Americans such as the Cherokee, Apache, Pima, and Ojibwa harvested acorns regularly and used them as an insurance food, in case food supply became scarce. They made acorn flour for bread. Acorns have been said to be more nutritional than wheat and corn.
Tea tree oil is an essential oil derived from the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia plant, from Australia. The oil comes directly from the leaves of the plant. The chemicals known as terpenoids are the magic inside the leaves. Terpenoids have antifungal properties responsible for tea tree oil’s antimicrobial power.

Some people are absolutely and vehemently against the production/consumption of GMO’s and others seem to wholeheartedly support them. But at the end of the day, most people have no idea what “Genetically Modified” means, having no impact on their buying habits at all.
Nothing has polarized people more in recent times than the debate on either legalizing Marijuana or keeping it banned as a harmful substance. It is derived from the plant called ‘Cannabis Sativa’ and contains the chemical THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol).
