Undoubtedly the most versatile and efficacious natural health substance yet discovered. Extensively scientifically researched and verified in the laboratory and epidemiologically (large-scale usage studies). A recent Medline search revealed thousands of peer reviewed published scientific papers focussing on green tea, more than any other health food, beverage or even herbal, nutritional or medicinal substance. There is no other natural health substance or product anywhere in the world, known to be capable of competing for safety and efficacy, even regular commercial green tea, let alone our unique special ‘peasant grown, harvested and processed optimal health grade’. No medicinal claims are implied, but rather a broad review of the tremendous health optimising potential hereof.

Chinese green tea generally, let alone its authentic traditional peasant-grown whole-leaf form here, has received extensive scientific acclaim from diverse biological disciplines that on analysis of the voluminous research at hand can only briefly be accurately described as a “mega-potent anti-oxidant health optimising anti-aging beverage”. Vindicating Gaia’s pioneering, arguably visionary, personal care applications nearly 2 decades ago, researchers have now stated: “Green tea can be used as a natural ingredient with excellent physiological functions for the human skin through cosmetic or food composition” (An B et al, Am J Clin Med, 33(4), 2005).

There is a general misconception that because Green Tea contains a small amount of Caffeine (which is not harmful, but actually synergises the healthful properties), it might disrupt sleep - so essential to good health - but this is not so. Theanine is an amino acid present only in Chinese tea (2% in green & reduced via oxidation to black) and in a species of wild mushroom. Of all amino acids found in green tea, L-theanine is the most prevalent and is a taste component, which specifically negates this assumed effect of caffeine, resulting instead in a state of ‘relaxed alertness’, which once one withdraws one’s attention from active stimuli, actually results in improved sleep. There is no nervousness, drowsiness, grogginess or other negative side effects as associated with other sedatives and stimulants and the calming effect of L-thianine in green tea can improve sleep quality without increasing duration.

The mechanisms are known. When L-theanine is absorbed in the intestinal tract and delivered to each organ, it is also delivered concentration-dependently to the brain. Increase of dopamine levels and changes of serotonin levels by L-theanine have been observed. (Yokogoshi H et al, Biosci, Biotech Biochem, 62(4), 1998); (Yokogoshi H et al, Neurochem Res, 23(5), 1998);(Yokogoshi H, Terashima T, Nutrition, 16(9), 2000). In various behavioural tests, improvements in memory and learning performance with the administration of L-theanine have been observed. In human subjects, the activity of the parasympathetic nervous system increased. Also, alpha waves in the brain increased significantly, inducing relaxation. (Kobayashi K et al, Nippon Noegikagako Kaishi, 72 (2), 1998); (Lekh R et al, Trends Food Sci Technol, 10 (6-7), 1999); (Kakuda T et al, Biosci, Biotechnol Biochem, 64(2), 2000)

Gaia Research have identified Chamomile as the perfect companion to green tea to set consumer’s minds at ease over the widely assumed issue of caffeine in green tea disturbing sleep, which unnecessarily limits their use of green tea to daytime only. To encourage consumption of sufficient green tea throughout the wakened state so as to extend and optimise its well-established considerable health benefits, Gaia have blended some of our Green Tea with ¼ German Chamomile to take advantage of the synergistic calming and digestive settling properties of both, making the blend more than suitable for afternoon and even evening consumption and complement and synergise the already considerable beneficial properties of green tea, without any of the hazards attendant to tranquillisers.

These two beverages have not been used together until now, due to an incorrect notion of expected conflict of principal properties, whereas the reverse is true, in particular towards the end of a busy day as one prepares to ‘actively unwind’. The combination teabags make convenient effective warm eye compresses, perfect for treating our hard working windows to the world that reflect the strains of our hectic lifestyles and chronic lack of quality sleep. Whilst Chinese green tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world, Chamomile is still an official traditional medicine recognised by government authority in the pharmacopoeia of 26 countries and it has been estimated that over one million cups of Chamomile tea are ingested daily worldwide, making it the most widely consumed herb tea. (Foster, S. Chamomile, Botanical Series, No 307, Amer Bot Council, Austin, Texas, 1991)

Animal studies have demonstrated German Chamomile's ability to reduce inflammation, speed wound healing, reduce muscle spasms, and to serve as a mild sedative to help with sleep. In Europe, Chamomile was traditionally and is commonly used as a digestive aid, to treat mild skin conditions, menstrual cramps, insomnia, and as a tension reliever. Chamomile has also been used successfully to provide comfort in cases of the common cold, sore throats, abscesses, gum inflammation (gingivitis), psoriasis, acne, eczema, psoriasis, minor first-degree burns, inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis), stomach ulcers, diaper rash, and colic. Laboratory studies have also confirmed some anti-microbial properties. (Blumenthal M, Goldberg A, Brinckmann J, Herbal Medicine: Expanded Commission E Monographs, Integrative Medicine Communications, Newton, MA, 57-61, 2000)

Chamomiles have been used for centuries in teas as a mild, relaxing sleep aid. In the Developed World, oral chamomile is used primarily for relaxation and sleep. Low doses produced a calming effect, while higher doses are more likely to cause sleep, sedating and anti-anxiety effects. Chamomile also has antispasmodic effects, relieving or preventing uncomfortable muscle contractions, especially in the gastrointestinal tract and has also been used to treat minor gastrointestinal complaints such as gas, motion sickness, and stomach cramps. Topically, Chamomile can be applied to the skin as a wash or a poultice (hot teabag) for haemorrhoids and minor skin irritations. ( April 17, 2006) No medicinal use is intended or implied. These properties are an added bonus.


In order to ensure the most healthful green tea available, Gaia supply only hard-sought and acquired authentic imported peasant-grown whole-leaf Chinese green tea as our unique “quality” standard, selected on the following unique evidence-based unorthodox quality, safety and efficacy criteria, established during our many years research into the intricacies of this truly amazing miracle natural health product. Any green tea may be termed “Chinese” by virtue of its geographical evolutionary origins in China, as signified by its botanical name Thea (now Camellia) sinensis, which renders it important to specify ‘Chinese grown’, indeed ‘peasant grown Chinese green tea’ to ensure optimal quality and that you are not obtaining inferior Japanese, Taiwanese, Hong Kong, or commercial Chinese tea, for numerous significantly important, but generally unrecognised reasons to be outlined hereafter.

Of varietal significance is that green tea grown commercially even inside, but especially outside of China, has a lower vital polyphenol content due to different breeding lineages over many centuries, whereby national cross-cultures have favoured certain characteristics to suit different agronomic, taste or aesthetic preferences. In particular, the valuable polyphenol antioxidants are moreover not significantly induced in irrigation, fertiliser and pesticide pampered crops, hence our choice of tea grades originating from peasant grown sources, since these poor subsistence farmers cannot afford the aforementioned luxuries, so allowing the plants to beneficially struggle.

An unappreciated critical advantage of agronomic austerity, besides lack of toxic agrichemical residues, is the fact that as the indigenous tea plants struggle against the harsh environmental factors of drought, heat, wind, insects, and fungal attack, under these conditions they also optimise the synthesis of complex survival chemistry developed evolutionarily to cope with such conditions and of which the potent antioxidant polyphenol catechins are the most important for health, but are far from fully exploited when the plants are agronomically pampered as is standard practice in mainstream world tea markets and grades of tea. Struggle breeds character, and in this case, strength.

Further unappreciated advantages are avoidance of rather significant risks relating to the chemical bio-accumulation characteristics of the tea plants themselves, whereby heavy nitrogen fertilisation, as used extensively for commercial crops so as to optimise yield and produce brilliant green foliage, besides pampering the plants, also radically increases the uptake of toxic aluminium to truly undesirable levels as high as 1000ug/g and which process is further aggravated by the standard extensive use superphosphate fertilisers outside of Chinese peasant systems, and which moreover release and cause significant uptake of the toxic heavy metal, cadmium, to as much as 250ppm, particularly noteworthy since cadmium is a chronic mammalian enzyme poison having no place at all in a healthy diet, let alone of those who are ill. How many suppliers of Green Tea as a health beverage consider this?

The Chinese peasants significantly also still use the time-honoured traditional organicultural methods of fertilisation with organic agricultural wastes, night soil and crushed rock mulches, which are more practical for their hilly terrain than synthetic fertilisers, which would in any event be lost by runoff by the first rain following application. A recent development is the introduction of annual selenium-rich rock dressings to optimise benefits. Interestingly the Chinese Academy of Sciences have pioneered the development of environmentally benign bio-pesticidal strategies to the obvious benefit of products of the local peasant system, so helping to keep pests to manageable levels without actually requiring pesticide use. Our detailed assays confirm the success of this strategy.

Chinese peasants moreover, still use pan-firing to control the anti-oxidant destructive polyphenol oxidase enzyme mediated damaging oxidative chain-reaction, whereas the Taiwanese, Japanese and highly commercialised Chinese plantations use the significantly more nutrient leaching steam method. The Chinese peasants still scrounge and grow their tea on the rich hilly alkaline red earth in the south-east provinces, which are more exclusively devoted to traditional green tea production in the plant’s original ecological niche, under ancient natural labour-intensive systems, content to trade-off toxic agrichemicals and processing machinery for a lower crop yield, but bearing and recognising, albeit not intellectually, the mentioned distinct health advantages over all other types of green tea.

What additionally, uniquely sets Gaia’s own green tea standard way ahead of the competition, besides the above-mentioned and our hand-sorting quality control, is our leading-edge use of ozone (triple oxygen molecule) sterilisation and furthermore, our exclusive use of 7.83 Hz Schumann Resonance of the final product, to ensure optimal frequency reorientation of the molecules to the original Earth frequency following post-harvest disruptions. A comprehensive assay of our product from the Fresenius Institute in Germany has verified the purity of this tea.

We have a comprehensive assay of our tea from the Fresenius Institute and it is amazingly pure for a modern tea.

Gaia pedigreed Kombucha cultures are personally raised in our laboratory exclusively on high quality peasant grown Chinese green tea, fueled with natural brown sugar, providing access to high integrity source materials to perpetuate a centuries old tradition of producing your household’s own “Divine Che”, “Mo Gu”, “Manchurian Tea” or “Kargasok Tea”, some of 100-odd names by which the slightly sweet, tart beverage produced is known around the world and which culture every fortnight doubles its production capacity, which is why it’s offspring are often given away as a gift and it has been called the “fungus of charity”. Consumption of Kombucha was first recorded in 220 BC in Manchuria, from whence it spread throughout the Far and Near East, Pacific, Russia and Germany to eventually the rest of Europe, Africa and more recently the entire globe. The kit comprises a solid living culture, live liquid concentrate, durable hygienic micro-sieve, a starting green tea sample and literature.

A pure, uniquely natural processed kelp, blended with a synergising selection of culinary herbs and spices chosen for their combined flavour and health-promoting properties, collectively superior to any mineral supplement and even the most exotic herbs currently being hyped as wonder-drugs. This formula also focuses on providing abundant organic potassium to offset excess dietary sodium, an essential changes to restore/maintain health.

Contains: micronised kelp, paprika, turmeric, marjoram/oregano, rosemary, celery seed, cumin, garlic, thyme (cayenne & black pepper, if “Hot”); and potassium chloride and magnesium peroxide. Sprinkle on food to taste (after cooking).

Please refer to our more detailed nutritional and herbal research information relating to the constituents comprising the formulation of this pro-active food product, which is available in our Health Care Research department here.


A uniquely micronised and defatted flaxseed based foodstuff, pioneering optimal bioavailability of the lignans, which are even more health protective and beneficial than the already well-established beneficial oils, purposely largely removed from this product to enhance bioavailability and assimilation of the water soluble- and bacterial conversion-dependent lignans. Flaxseed is the most significant dietary source of vital dietary phyto-hormonal precursors known as lignans. Studies in humans have shown flax lignans to play an important role in avoidance of menopausal symptoms, osteoporosis, cancer, and heart disease (Kurzer M & Xu X, Annu Rev Nutr, 17, 1997).

Contains: micronised defatted flaxseed meal and the high potassium and antioxidant Nutri-Spice (See item E). The cyanide precursor that remains in ground flaxseed and flaxseed sprouts has been removed by centrifuging. Suggested use: a mere smear or finger-lick daily; possibly a little more initially, will exceed all meals in provision of these valuable nutrients. Can be refrigerated for preservation of optimal integrity, though it will keep very well even at room temperature.

Trace elements are essential to all critical life-dependent enzyme pathways, including cellular immunity, but are increasingly deficient in modern foods. All earth elements leached from our soils are bio-accumulated by kelp in an optimum chelated form. Avoidance of nutrient damaging irradiation (ozonisation sterilised instead) and focussing on ultra-micronisation, ensures that critical nutrients are up to 1000 times more bio-available than with kelp tablets.

Suggested use: up to ¼ of a teaspoon daily in water, fruit juice / smoothies, vegetable juices and cool food. Ensures that mineral deficiencies from widespread soil depletion, cooking and processing are more than recovered. Nature’s richest source of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, iodine and manganese. An exceptional source of all other nutrients.

Our ‘first 25kg seed cold-pressing of the day’ standard is unique in the industry. ‘Cold’ presses soon run at temperatures at around 40 degrees Celsius or more. The term "cold-pressed", rather than equating to a ‘cold’ press, merely indicates that the press does not utilise thermal elements to artificially increase the temperature beyond the frictional temperature as is commonly done commercially to reduce the oil viscosity even further so as to maximise the yield that can be expressed from the seeds. Our oil is always pressed first, when the equipment is started stone-cold in the morning and is never more than the first 25kg seed yield, to avoid exposure to inevitable increasing temperatures as the built in metal heat sinks saturate and can no longer draw heat away from the screw and barrel.

Absolutely no one but Gaia Organics supply a flaxseed oil of such outstanding quality and integrity, period.

Use as a dose or salad dressing – initially up to a teaspoon daily for a few weeks and thereafter 15-35 drops daily, depending on the amount of competing oil and fat in the diet - to fill a major nutritional gap in the natural food chain, without the organo-chlorine PCB toxicity attendant to Salmon oil, the only other rich source of omega-3 besides nearly always suspect rancid hemp oil. The dietary n-3 fatty acids in high integrity flaxseed oil can confer a novel approach to improving arterial function (Nestel P, et al, Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol, 17(6), 1997), has anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic, anti-arrhythmic, hypolipidemic and vasodilatory properties (Simopoulos A, Am J Clin Nutr, 70(3 Suppl), 1999) and can markedly prevent or reduce the development of hypercholesterolemic atherosclerosis and related heart attack and stroke (Prasad K, Atherosclerosis, 132(1), 1997), to list but a few benefits over and above basic nutrition.

Magnesium peroxide (MgO2) is 43% powdered magnesium (Mg) and 57% pure ‘solid phase oxygen’ (O2). Magnesium is an ideal carrier for the oxygen, since it is an antacid and alkalizes the gut fluid, enabling the oxygen to dissolve. Magnesium peroxide progressively liberates the oxygen upon contact with the acids in water and also imparts a beneficial high alkaline reaction to water to which it is added. Oxygenated magnesium has additional advantages over other forms - such as significantly greater mineral ionisation. Normally Gaia Research would not recommend elemental minerals, preferring food sources, but in this case there is considerable scientific evidence that it is uniquely well utilised as a water additive, especially since it is ionised.

Directions: We recommend a pinch of powder in every glass of water or up to a heaped teaspoon early morning in a glass of water/dilute fruit juice on an empty stomach at least 30 minutes, if not longer, before breakfast, continued daily until the bowel completely empties, after which halve the dose daily until 1/8th of a teaspoon is reached. Magnesium peroxide is also useful for coating seeds for gardening and adding to sprouting seeds to improve germination and alkalise, oxygenate and sterilise the young roots as it slowly liberates hydrogen peroxide and oxygen.

Please see also next entry for Hydrogen Peroxide which may be safely added at 3 drops to a pinch of Magnesium Peroxide per glass of drinking water.

H2O2 is found naturally in very low concentrations (i.e. highly diluted) in rain and seawater, raw seeds, sprouts, fruits and vegetables and mothers' milk. H2O2 is formed when for example: ether is exposed to sunlight, when a hydrogen-oxygen flame impinges on ice and when water in a quartz vessel is exposed to ultraviolet light. Humans and other mammals and also plants, synthesise H2O2 intracellularly, under endogenous anti-oxidative enzyme control, in particular as an essential component of the immune response against infectious micro-organisms.

‘Food grade’ hydrogen peroxide is stable at 35% (120 vol.) and is therefore free of the stabilisers, preservatives and other contaminants, normally not considered a problem in the commercial 3-12% (10-40 vol.) solutions used as skin antiseptics and hair bleaches, which are not suitable for human oral consumption. H2O2 at a dilution of 1-3, possibly 5 drops per glass of water (up to 15 drops in polluted water survival emergencies) in a 250ml glass of water serves as an effective drinking water disinfectant against unicellular pathogens and reproductive egg stages of multi-cellular pathogens without the high toxicity potential of chlorine, other disinfectants and their by-products.

Food-grade 35% hydrogen peroxide, suitably diluted to or below the maximum oral strength of 15 drops per glass of water is perfectly harmless at this dilution, provided it is consumed on a relatively empty stomach free of iron supplements, vitamin C and polyunsaturated oils. If it reacts with food residues, extra water should be drunk to increase dilution and reduce nausea caused by excessive nascent oxygen liberation, which may be totally avoided by limiting use to 3 drops per glass, with no limitation being applicable to how many such glasses are consumed. It is recommended that any regimen using high dose oral H2O2, also include the regular consumption of green tea.

So safe is this dilution that beneficial acidophilus intestinal bacteria are not threatened, since they actually produce H2O2 to control their natural enemy, Candida albicans. H2O2 decomposes to water and oxygen in the bowel before absorption. With doses over 5 drops per glass of water, rinse the mouth with neat water to avoid any likelihood of decalcifying tooth substance. H2O2 tastes obnoxious at the higher levels mentioned, serving as a precaution against inappropriate use, which would be difficult to achieve due to nausea that would accompany consumption of too much, other than accidental gulping, which is why the bottle must be stored responsibly.

Caution: Please be mindful of the abovementioned maximum suggested oral dilutions. Higher concentrations up to this 35% product are considered corrosive and must be treated as such at all times. Painful gastric distension and belching may be caused by the liberation of large volumes of oxygen in the stomach. Blistering of the mucosae and oropharyngeal burns may follow ingestion of concentrated solutions, and laryngospasm and haemorrhagic gastritis are a possibility. Sinus tachycardia, lethargy, confusion, coma, convulsions, stridor, sub-epiglottic narrowing, apnoea, cyanosis and cardiorespiratory arrest may ensue within minutes of ingestion of upper end concentrations.

Emergency Poisoning Measures:
Immediately drink some water. Gut decontamination is not indicated, thanks to rapid decomposition by catalase to oxygen and water. If distension is painful, pass a gastric gas release tube.

Suggested uses for 3% strength (50ml in a 500ml hand-pump atomizer of water) include: sterilisation and chemical detoxification of fruit and vegetables, crockery, cutlery, chopping boards and kitchen sinks and surfaces. Wait a few minutes, the longer the better, before rinsing, except for fruits and vegetables, which should be rinsed within 3-minutes to preserve the beneficial biothiols. Dry off all non-stainless steel metals to prevent rusting. The presence of micro-organisms is detectable by a micro-foaming action that is often even audible at close ear range and is a useful indicator of hotspots. Can be sprayed on the body and rinsed off before or once itching first becomes perceptible. An excellent antiseptic skin damage monitor - all bacterial pockets will prickle and present as whitened effervescence on or under the skin, indicative of oxidative disinfection. Also suitable, at 5-35ml to 500ml water as a light toilet seat and toilet paper spray for 1st class personal hygiene; and boiled or sprayed onto a suitable hot surface or used in a humidifier/steamer, serving as an atmospheric steri-oxygenator, especially in a sick-room. Caution: Do not ever mix with any other chemical, eg chlorine or bleach, since the result could be explosive.

Please see also previous entry for Magnesium Peroxide which may be safely added at 1 pinch per glass of water to which 3 drops of Hydrogen Peroxide.

These beneficial organisms, inoculated in infancy during breast-feeding, should be the primary species for optimal intestinal & colon ecology, failing which health is progressively compromised until it fails, usually permanently. Use is essential following courses of antibiotics and also intensive or prolonged colloidal silver regimens. The primary functions of alimentary canal microflora include nutritive, immunological and protective activities. Suggested use: 2 tablets mornings with full glass of water on empty stomach for 2 weeks. (Refrigerate).
