”Shea Butter is made from the nut of the Shea-Karite tree which grows in the tropical regions of Africa. The Shea -Kaite Trees take at least 15 years to produce shea, fruits which are then stored, dried and crushed. This ""butter"" is 100% chemical-free & safe to eat (though intended for external use).
Why Do we use "Levigated" Pearl?
Our Pearl Powder is "Levigated" meaning it is micro-ground to nano-proportions for optimum bio-availability. We source it from from sustainable, freshwater farms. This technique now used is known as levigation, where high grade pearl is ground in water using a circular motion until the fine powder becomes suspended in water. Once the water is removed, it is separated from the powder from non-suspended heavier powder. More water is added and this process is continues until all the pearl is extracted (goes into suspension). This process allows the pearl to become a bio-available source once dried and this “levigated” Pearl powder is almost nano-sized and is thus very easy for the human body to absorb.*
Sun Potion Tocos is derived from the Bran of Organically Grown Brown Rice. Bran is the powerhouse of the sprouting rice and contains all the nutrients required for the rice in early development and growth.
Tocos is most famous as a super-rich source of fat-soluble natural vitamin E and is widely recognized as being exceptional for connective tissue and skin. Vitamin E is also important for healthy muscle function.
Sun Potion Tocos is a natural product and the Vitamin E comes straight from the rice, unlike most Vitamin E supplements (which are most often synthesized from Soy Beans). The varieties of Tocopheranols and Tocotrienols in this batch of Tocos contain naturally occurring Vitamin A (Beta Carotene), Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine), Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Vitamin E, Folic Acid, Biotin, Choline, and Inositol. It also contains naturally occurring Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Iron, Zinc, Manganese, Copper, Iodine and other Trace Minerals.
Research studies suggest that Vitamin E has numerous health benefits. Vitamin E is thought to play a role in preventing atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases (heart disease and stroke) due to its effects on a number of steps in the development of atherosclerosis (e.g. inhibition of LDL oxidation, inhibition of smooth muscle cell proliferation, inhibition of platelet adhesion, aggregation and platelet release reaction).Recent studies suggest that vitamin E enhances immunity in the elderly and that supplementation with vitamin E lowers the risk of respiratory tract infections, particularly the common cold. There is a great deal of research underway investigating the role of Vitamin E in protecting against outside pollution and lowering the risk of cancer.Resources
