GOOD SEED

We couldn’t be more excited to share with you our fall offering: a collaboration with Sun for Soul, a seed and nut butter company dedicated to making Traditional Chinese Herbs convenient and delicious. This harvest season we offer you the CAP Matcha Sprouted Pumpkin Seed Butter. Carefully crafted and utterly divine, here is the breakdown of what’s inside:

Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds

Antioxidant rich and high in magnesium and zinc.

Why sprout?

Sprouting seeds initiates germination, in other words sprouting catalyzes the shift from seed to plant. When a seed is sprouted the density of nutrients and vitamins begin to multiply. Sprouting also helps to activate the enzymes that aid in the digestion of the nutrients.

How sprout?

The seeds are first rinsed and then soaked for 24 hours. Rinsing helps remove phytic acid, which impairs the body’s ability to absorb minerals. Rinsing is followed by slow dehydration, allowing for safe and healthy consumption. 

Why stone ground? 

Large granite stones slowly massage the seeds at a low temperature. This method allows for a release of natural oils and then distributes the oil uniformly. This helps make the butter perfectly creamy and delicious. 

Sunflower Seeds

High in vitamin B1, vitamin B3, vitamin B5, manganese, magnesium, copper, selenium, phosphorus and folate. CAP fact: sunflower seeds contain more vitamin E than any other nut or seed.

Matcha

I mean, you know we are obsessed. Matcha contains the nutrients from the entire tea leaf, which results in a greater amount of caffeine and antioxidants than a normal green tea. Matcha also contains high levels of catechins, a plant compound that acts as a natural plant based antioxidant supporting cellular health.

Chinese Herbs 

Traditional Chinese Medicine utilizes a formulaic approach to herbalism that supports the treatment of the body from a holistic perspective. The ancient principals of TCM are designed to target specific organ networks in order to restore vital life force and keep equanimity between Yin and Yang. 

The specific formula in the CAP Matcha Sprouted Pumpkin Seed Butter is designed to support the liver. The liver can be likened to the main control board of the body. When the liver is not in good health stress, anxiety, exhaustion and weakness can arise.

These are the herbs included:

Bupleurum — Purify

White Peony Root — Balance

Atractylodes — Energy

Angelica Sinuses — Circulation

White Poria — Distress

Ginger Rhizome — Warmth

Licorice Root — Harmony

Dried Mint — Refresh

Now the important part. How to use?

We like it on crackers, with banana bread, in green smoothies, in tonics or on a spoon straight from the jar.
