We have been talking about it for months now. We have introduced a brand-new Mt. Angel Vitamins supplement line, and we are excited about it. Like, really excited about it. We took our favorite great quality, effective, and thoughtfully-formulated products, and made them even better with ingredient upgrades, trademarked-materials, and scientifically-backed formulas that we believe will take the product to new heights.
Congratulations! You made it through Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday in one piece! I don't know about you, but it always seems like this time of year just shows up without warning, and all of the sudden, I'm deep into shopping for gifts and writing out lists and planning meals and figuring out last minute holiday travel plans. Compound that with a lot of family time (in an election year... eeek) and the pressure to have your house decorated *just so* and it's no surprise that we can often feel a bit stressed out around the holiday season.
The "queen of greens" is nutritious and delicious. It is low in calories and has zero fat. It is high in fiber, iron (kale has more iron than beef), vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, folate and magnesium. It is a strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detox food.
Today, we bring you a delicious raw kale salad that is easy to put together. We're not sure where it came from (it was a handwritten copy in one of our recipe books at home), but it has been around a while and we can personally attest to its great taste!
We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new and completely redesigned website! Our revamped site offers quick and easy access to essential information and product features, and will be updated on a regular basis with news of product launches, events, and promotions.
The health benefits of vitamin C have been known so long that sometimes this power-house antioxidant vitamin falls off the radar. But it can't be taken for granted; the body can't generate Vitamin C, so it has to be received into the body through food and supplements.
It seems that every day we learn more about the health-promoting affects of fat-soluble vitamin D. Known as the sunshine vitamin because we manufacture it in response to skin contact with UV sun rays, it’s one of the few vitamins our bodies can synthesize. Some researchers suggest we need up to 30 minutes of sun exposure between 10 AM and 3 PM at least twice a week to the face, arms, legs, or back without sunscreen for sufficient creation of vitamin D – making it a challenge for many people and raising concerns about skin photoaging and cancer.
Here at Mt. Angel Vitamins, we take quality seriously. Every product we produce is put through a rigorous series of tests from confirming identity and potency to screening for heavy metals, insecticides and microbes to disintegration testing to ensure the tablets break down in your system the way they are supposed to. We do this as part of our UL NPA GMP certification, but also because it's what we believe. We won't create a product that we wouldn't take ourselves.
To delve a bit deeper into this topic, we interviewed our Director of Quality and Compliance, John Mills to find out how, why, and where he sources.
Stinging Nettle helps to keep the immune system balanced, and has specifically been studied as a way to relieve hay fever. In a study done by the National College of Natural Medicine (now the National University of Natural Medicine) in Portland, Oregon, 58% of hay fever sufferers reported stinging nettle to be effective, and 48% of the hay fever sufferers said 300 mg of the freeze-dried stinging nettle was as effective as other allergy medications.
