“Your Kelp Fronds are a major ingredient in our Umami Hot Sauce. We buy from you because they are sustainably harvested and because the flavor is incredible. You also have consistent quality and great customer service. Keep up the good work!”
“As a professional chef, I’ve always thought that Chinese Wakame was very unpleasant, and I hoped (correctly, it turns out) that seaweeds from the West coast would yield a far superior product.
Your seaweeds have helped me convince a lot of suspicious people (fellow chefs included) that sea vegetables are delicious! I also like purchasing from small purveyors who are passionate about what they do.”
"I try to include some seaweed in my diet every day, and it helps with my digestion. I am constantly trying to balance my gut flora, and I'm not sure if it's the transit time or mineral composition that it helps, but it does indeed help. I also like having some on hand at my clinic for my clients."
“As a master herbalist, I am very particular about where I source my herbs. Through blessing and research, I found Naturespirit Herbs and they have been my go-to company for my herbal needs.Thank you, James and Kari - you have brought herbs to me that I never otherwise would have had the chance to work with - much less in their fresh state!”
“Sea vegetables became part of my diet when I studied macrobiotics in NYC at the (now closed) Macrobiotic Center. As a fledging natural foods chef, I was fascinated to see how a sea vegetable-rich diet helped people to not only survive, but thrive.In addition, I took classes at The Natural Gourmet Cooking School. During this time of culinary discovery, I began to develop recipes for sea vegetables, later publishing them in my first book, Total Breast Health, Power Foods for Protection and Wellness.
Through research, I discovered that iodine - a mineral abundant in sea vegetables - is essential to breast health, and that consumption of sea vegetables is also life-extending for men.
Shortly after Total Breast Health was released, I was introduced to Naturespirit’s Sea Vegetable Powder through master herbalist and author Donald R. Yance. Donnie taught me to mix the powder with crushed flax seeds, pureed fruit (such as berries), a natural sweetener, and Natura’s Beyond Whey – a unique whey from grass fed cows.Eventually, I started using Naturespirit’s St. John’s Wort tincture, which I take every evening in a cup of herbal tea. My sleep became deep and restful. Through the years, I tried St. John’s Wort from other companies, but the effects were not as discernible.”
