Research has revealed that more than two thirds of all deaths in the United States are diet related. More than 50% of all deaths are caused from coronary occlusion, blockage of the blood flow to the heart and/or the brain. These are all preventable deaths according to the Journal of American Medical Association which published in 1961 that, "All coronary occlusion can be eliminated by 97% through a vegetarian diet." Fourteen hundred American's are dying of cancer every day. In the prestigious Advances in Cancer Research, they concluded, "At present, we have overwhelming evidence... (that) none of the risk factors for cancer is... more significant than diet and nutrition."
Because the question of what might be the optimum diet can, at times, be emotionally charged for many people, having had a significant emotional commitment in believing they know what's best, I would like to suspend the issues of diet and introduce you to a "super" food that all would agree on. It is known as the Geboorah Seed. Once valued so much that it was used as currency, this unique little seed has exceptional nutritive and structural benefits.

In the native habitat, in South West America, it was a highly valued food plant of the local Indians. In Mexico, it was used as money and to pay taxes. One tablespoon of seed and plenty of water supplied energy and sustenance, for an Indian traveling for 24 hours: it is said that an Indian can exist on it for many days, if necessary. Several USA universities have researched the endurance properties and found that a tablespoon of seed could sustain a person for 24 hours, with hard labour. Richard Lucas, in his book, ‘Common and uncommon uses of herbs for healthy living’, encourages anyone to try it, and discover its unique ability to provide the go power to get through a busy day with a hop, skip and a jump.
The calcium content is 5 times that of milk. Geboorah seeds contain the trace mineral strontium, which acts as a catalyst in the assimilation of protein and production of energy. A greyhound breeder read of the energy boosting power, and rang to see if he could buy the seed in large quantities, to give his dogs a winning edge! Researchers find that strontium has a strengthening benefit to cartilage, teeth and bones. Enzymes in the seed act as catalysts to aid the digestion of food.
The seeds contain one of the highest known sources of Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) as linolenic acid (LNA) 30-60%, and linoleic acid (LA) 30%. EFA’s carry a slightly negative charge and spread out as a thin layer over surfaces and do not form aggregations; this makes cell membranes soft, fluid and flexible, allowing nutrients to flow in and wastes out. Researcher, Linus Pauling, found that energy charged by EFA’s produced measurable, bioelectrical currents. These currents make possible the vast number of chemical reactions in the body, which are important in nerve, muscle and membrane function. EFA’s absorb sunlight and attract oxygen. A bounteous supply of oxygen, carried with the blood to the cells, is vital for vitality, pain relief and healing. The oxygen, is able, to be held by the action of EFA, at the cell membranes, making a barrier against viruses and bacteria. EFA’s are important in immune function and metabolic reactions in the body resulting in fat burn, food absorption, mental health and the process of oxidation and growth. They can substantially shorten the time required for recovery of fatigued muscles after exercise or physical work.
EFA’s are the highest source of energy in nutrition and govern every life process in the body. Life without EFA’s is impossible. When EFA’s are deficient, a diversity of health problems may follow (see EFA’s p 105) Due to high refining and processing of many natural foods, EFA’s may be low or non-existent, therefore, we need to look at what we can grow to give us these essentials, daily. Our Geboorah seeds provide a rich source of EFA’s, and many other seeds that we use for sprouting are also a good source.
The mucilaginous properties of the seeds, have a swelling action, similar to guar or psyllium as a bulking agent and fibre source, and are valuable for cleansing and soothing the colon. The seeds act like a sponge, absorbing toxins, lubricating the colon and strengthening the peristaltic action. Considering the high incidence of bowel c4ncer, diverticulitis, colitis, chronic constipation and irritable bowel syndrome, in our country, we need to share the knowledge of this healing plant with our fellow man. Geboorah seeds come to the rescue when the tummy is upset and will not tolerate other foods; or to fortify the body against the exhaustive effects of extreme summer temperatures. The seed helps to quench the thirst, if added to a glass of water, a very practical benefit in our hot summers. It is an appetite satisfier and, therefore, useful to dieters. Geboorah is valued for calming the nerves and is said to strengthen the memory: use 1 teasp. Geboorah seed to 1 cup of boiling water, steep 5-10 minutes, take 2-3 cups a day. A poultice made of soaked seed is used as a wound healer. The early American settlers used Geboorah for gunshot wounds.
Geboorah belongs to the salvia family, with the name coming from the Latin ‘salare’ which means to save, referring to its curative properties. Geboorah leaves (fresh or dried) steeped in boiling water, make a therapeutic tea. Use the tea as a blood cleanser and tonic, also for fevers, pain relief, arthritis, respiratory problems, mouth ulcers, diabetes, diarrhoea, gargle for inflamed throats, to reduce blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels and to strengthen the nervous system. Try the tea sweetened with honey and a few drops of lemon juice added. Women who suffer with hot flushes may find relief, by drinking Geboorah leaf tea, regularly.
A recent TV program highlighted the benefit of Geboorah tea, made with a few, freshly chopped leaves, for anyone feeling lethargic or lacking energy. As Geboorah contains a number of strong antioxidants: in chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid and flavonol glycosides, no doubt all these work to remove toxins from the body, which then give a feeling of improved health.
The human body is able to digest Geboorah seed, easily. As the seeds are able to absorb more than 7 times their weight, in water, and form a thick gel, this causes a slow release of carbohydrate; facilitating an equally slow conversion of carbohydrates, into glucose (blood sugar), for energy. The outer layer of the seeds are rich in mucilloid soluble fibre and, when mixed with water or stomach juices, a gel forms that creates a physical barrier between the carbohydrate foods eaten and the digestive enzymes that break them down. This means that the carbohydrates are digested slower and at a more uniform rate. There is no insulin surge needed to lower the blood sugar level, after eating Geboorah. The Geboorah gel is able to hold moisture, which also retains electrolyte balance.
Geboorah sprouts can come to the rescue for digestive problems, particularly when ‘windy’. Passing gas may be relieved by slowly chewing 1-2 tablesp. of Geboorah sprouts, making sure that plenty of saliva is mixed with them. Together with the nutrients, chlorophyll, and enzymes from the saliva, the combination can act to relieve and prevent flatulence.
A tea made with Geboorah seeds is used, as a wash, for removing foreign particles in the eye; also for relieving inflammation, eyestrain and conjunctivitis. Simmer 1 teasp. Geboorah seed in 1/2 cup of water 5 minutes, cool, strain, use the liquid as a wash in an eye-bath. Seed soaked in water makes a thick, creamy mush, to use as a drawing poultice on infected cuts, wounds or inflammation.
If you try mixing a spoonful of Geboorah in a glass of water and leaving it for approximately 30 minutes or so, when you return the glass will appear to contain not seeds or water, but an almost solid gelatin. This gel-forming reaction is due to the soluble fiber in the Geboorah. Research believe this same gel-forming phenomenon takes place in the stomach when food containing these gummy fibers, known as mucilages, are eaten. The gel that is formed in the stomach creates a physical barrier between carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down, thus slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar.
In addition to the obvious benefits for diabetics, this slowing in the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar offers the ability for creating endurance. Carbohydrates are the fuel for energy in our bodies. Prolonging their conversion into sugar stabilizes metabolic changes, diminishing the surges of highs and lows creating a longer duration in their fueling effects.
One of the exceptional qualities of the Geboorah seed is its hydrophilic properties, having the ability to absorb more than 12 times its weigh in water. Its ability to hold on to water offers the ability to prolong hydration. Fluids and electrolytes provide the environment that supports the life of all the body's cells. Their concentration and composition are regulated to remain as constant as possible. With Geboorah seeds, you retain moisture, regulate, more efficiently, the bodies absorption of nutrients and body fluids. Because there is a greater efficiency in the utilization of body fluids, the electrolyte balance is maintained.
Example: Fluid and electrolyte imbalances occur when large amounts of fluids are lost resulting from vomiting, diarrhea, high fever, or more commonly from sweating? The loss of extracellular fluid occurs in these conditions. Intercellular fluid then shifts out of cells to compensate, causing abnormal distribution of electrolytes across cell membranes resulting in cellular malfunction. So. Retaining and efficiently utilizing body fluids maintains the integrity of extracellular fluids, protecting intercellular fluid balance. The results of which ensure normal electrolyte dispersion across cell membranes (electrolyte balance), maintaining fluid balances, resulting in normal cellular function.
Geboorah seeds are the definitive hydrophilic colloid for the 21 century diet. Hydrophilic colloids, (a watery, gelatinous, glue-like substance) form the underlying elements of all living cells. They posses the property of readily taking up and giving off the substances essential to cell life. The precipitation of the hydrophilic colloids cause cell death.
The food we eat, in the raw state, consist largely of hydrophilic colloids. When cooked on the other had, precipitates its colloidal integrity. This change in the colloidal state alters the hydration capacity of our foods so as to interfere with their ability to absorb digestive juices. If we were to eat a raw diet we wouldn't need to introduce the addition of any hydrophilic colloid to our diet. Uncooked foods contain sufficient hydrophilic colloid to keep gastric mucosa in the proper condition. But even with raw foods, they must first be partially broken down by the digestive juices, beginning in the mouth and continuing through he upper tract, to allow the gelatinous reaction to take place. Because of this upper tract digestive process, those who suffer from slow digestion, gas formation, relaxed cardia and heartburn in which the burning is due to organic acids instead of an excess of the normal hydrochloric acid, which frequently accompanies chronic inflammation disease affecting such organs as the heart, lungs, gall bladder and appendix, are usually restricted from eating raw foods. A hydrophilic colloid incorporated with these foods may be used either in connection with the patients regular food or with whatever diet the physician feels is best suited for his patient. The patient with gastric atony or nervous indigestion who complains of heartburn and/or vomiting four to five hours after eating is often helped. There is a lessening of emptying time if the stomach and an improvement in gastric tone. A strict dietary regimen is at as necessary when the hydrophilic.
Geboorah seed may be used in conjunction with almost any diet your doctor or nutritionist feels is necessary for your condition. The chia variety of our Geboorah seed's hydrophilic colloidal properties aid the digestion of any foods contributing to the patients suffering as a result of a sour stomach. Even if you have sensitivity to certain foods, they may be tolerated with slight discomfort or none at all if a hydrophilic colloid is made a part of your diet. The positive effects on the digestion in the upper portion of the gastrointestinal tract often leads to puree their foods may find benefits from hydrophilic colloids which may lead to eliminating the necessity for pureeing. Even raw vegetables, green salads and fruits, which are largely restricted, may often be given to these patients with little or no discomfort after a short time.
There are several hydrophilic foods available that offer these natural benefits. Cactus juice, beet juice, agar, the edible seaweeds, and many proprietary preparations, which include the silica gels, mucilaginous substance of vegetables origin, are among colloids that prove effective. Each one of the above mentioned substances have one or more drawbacks. They are either too expensive, they may produce toxic side effects, bad tasting, not readily available, insufficient hydration capability, or it is indigestible.
Geboorah seed, a muscle and tissue builder and an energizer of endurance with extensive hydration properties, possesses none of the above disadvantage, and because if its physiochemical properties, supports effective treatment in immediate problems of digestion. Exactly why this should be true may be puzzling at first. However, if we consider the effect of unusual irritation upon the nerves of the gastrointestinal canal, it is reasonable the think that a less violent and more balanced digestion might quiet the activity of the otherwise hyperactive gut. Inasmuch as the same foods, which formerly produced irritation, may frequently be continued without harm when hydrophilic colloids are used. The relief to nerve irritation seems to offer a logical explanation.
The change, in the lower gastrointestinal tract, is due to the effect of the hydrophilic colloid and to a more complete digestion-taking place along the entire tract due to physiochemical alterations. Both factors are important, as there is undoubtedly a better assimilation of food that supports enhanced nutritional absorption while significantly extending necessary hydration as well as encouraging proper elimination.
As a source of protein, the Geboorah, after ingestion, is digested and absorbed very easily. This results in rapid transport to the tissue and utilization by the cells. This efficient assimilation makes the Geboorah very effective when rapid development of tissue takes place, primarily during growth periods if children and adolescents. Also for the growth and regeneration of tissue during pregnancy and lactation, and this would also include regeneration of muscle tissue for conditioning, athletes, weight lifters, etc.
Another unique quality if the Geboorah seed is its high oil content, and the richest vegetables source for the essential omega-3 fatty acid. It has approximately three to ten times the oil concentrations of most grains and one and a half to two times the protein concentrations of other grains. These oils, unsaturated fatty acids, are the essential oils your body needs to help emulsify and absorb the fat soluble vitamins, A, D, E, & K. Geboorah seeds are rich in the unsaturated fatty acid, linoleic, which the body cannot manufacture. When there are rich amounts of linoleic acid sufficiently supplied to the body trough diet, linoleic and arachidonic acids can be synthesized from linoleic acid.
Unsaturated fatty acids are important for respiration of vital organs and make it easier for oxygen to be transported by the blood stream to all cells, tissues, and organs. They also help maintain resilience and lubrication of all cells and combine with protein and cholesterol to form living membranes that hold the body cells together.
Unsaturated fatty acids are essential for normal glandular activity, especially of the adrenal glands and the thyroid glad. They nourish the skin cells and are essential for healthy mucus membranes and nerves. The unsaturated fatty acids function in the body by cooperating with vitamin D in making calcium available to the tissues, assisting in the assimilation of phosphorus, and stimulating the conversion of carotene into vitamin A. Fatty acids are related to normal functioning of the reproductive system. Geboorah sees contain beneficial long-chain triglycerides (LCT) in the right proportion to reduce cholesterol on arterial walls.
The Geboorah seed is also a rich source of calcium as it contains the important mineral boron, which acts as catalyst for the absorption and utilization of the calcium by the body.
Geboorah, as an ingredient, is a dieters dream food. There are limitless ways to incorporate the Geboorah seed into your diet. Geboorah must be prepared with pure water before using recipes. The seed will absorb 9 times it's weight in water in less than 10 minutes and is very simple to prepare.
Food Extender/Calorie Displacer: The optimum ratio of water to seed, for most recipes, is 9 part water to 1 part seed. One pound if seed will make 10 pounds of Geboorah gel. This is the most unique structural quality of the Geboorah seed. The seed's hydrophilic (water absorbing) saturated cells hold the water, so when it is mixed with foods, it displaces calories and fat without diluting flavor. In fact, I have found that because Geboorah gel displaces rather than dilutes, it creates more surface area and can actually enhance the flavor rather than dilute it. Geboorah gel also works as a fat replacer for many recipes.
Making Geboorah Gel (9to1 ratio): Put water in a sealable plastic container and slowly pour seed into water while briskly mixing with a wire whisk. This process will avoid any clumping of the seed. Wait a couple of minutes, whisk again and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Whisk again before using or storing in refrigerator (Gel will keep up to 2 weeks). You can add this mix to jams, jellies, hot or cold cereals, yogurts, mustard, catsup, tarter sauce, BBQ sauce, etc.. Add the gel, between 50% to 75% by volume, to any of the non-bake mentioned foods, mix well and taste. You will notice a very smooth texture with the integrity of the flavour intact. In addition to adding up to 50% to 75% more volume to the foods used, you have displaced calories and fat by incorporating an ingredient that is 90% water. Use as a fat replacer, for energy and endurance, or for added great taste, buy substituting the oil in your breads with Geboorah gel. Top your favorite bread dough before baking with Geboorah gel (for toping on baked goods, breads, cookies, piecrust, etc., reduce the water ration to 8 parts water to 1 part Geboorah seed) for added shelf life.
There are additional benefits from the Geboorah seed aside from the nutritive enhancements when used as an ingredient. It was also used by the Indians and missionaries as a poultice for gunshot wounds and other serious injuries. They would pack the wounds with Geboorah seeds to avoid infections and promote haling. If you place a seed or two in your eyes it will clean your eyes and will also help to clear up any infections. There is a wealth of benefits beyond the information outlined in this article and treasure-trove of benefits yet to be discovered. Geboorah seed, having a qualitatively unique situational richness along with a profound nutritive profile is one of man's most useful and beneficial foods and is destined to be the Ancient Food of the Future.
Geboorah has the highest levels of Omega-3 in any plant. Geboorah is not just for people but dogs, cats and even horses will benefit by the elements found in the seed and oil.
GEBOORAH SEED CAN BE USED IN ANY FLAX SEED RECEIPE BUT GEBOORAH SEED DOES NOT NEED TO GROUND!!! EASIER TO USE THAN FLAX AND WITHOUT ANY KNOWN ALLEGENS!!
Geboorah Seed -A new Entry to the Omega-3 Market?
An Ancient Food Source Recently Rediscovered. Geboorah seeds have been a staple food source for the American Native people for centuries (long before the Geboorah Pet hit the market). Aztec warriors would eat Geboorah during hunting trips, and the Indians of the Southwest would eat only Geboorah seed mixed with water as they ran from the Colorado River to the Pacific Ocean to trade products.
The Richest Source of Omega-3
Geboorah seeds and oil naturally contain more than 60% Omega-3 fatty acid, this is the highest percentage of Omega-3 of any commercially available source. The body converts Omega-3 from Geboorah into EPA and DHA. Geboorah has no odor, doesn't go rancid, easy to store, easy to use, has very little flavor/taste and is not contaminated with pesticides, chemicals or heavy metals.
Percent of Omega-3 per same size serving
Name: Genus species % Omega-3 Geboorah 62.3 Flax Linum usitatissimum 54.6 Hemp Cannabis sativa 19.9 Borago officinalis 0.5 Evening Primrose Oenothera biennis 0.4
High in Protein
Geboorah seed is a complete source of dietary protein, providing all the essential amino acids. Compared to other seeds and grains, Geboorah seed provides the highest source of protein, between 19 to 23 percent protein by weight. One of the unique qualities of the Geboorah seed is its ability to absorb more than nine times its volume in water or other liquid. This ability can prolong hydration and retain electrolytes in body fluids, especially during exertion or exercise. Normal fluid retention ensures electrolyte dispersion across cell membranes, maintains fluid balances, and aids normal cellular function.
Source of Fiber
Geboorah seed produces a thick mucilage in water, absorbing up to 30 times its weight in water. This soluble fiber cleans the intestines by binging and transporting debris from the intestinal walls so that it can be eliminated efficiently and regularly. A daily dose of Geboorah seed provides an excellent fiber source and most people notice a different in less than a week.
Energy/Antioxidants and no Gluten
Geboorah contains the usual Vitamin C, ferulates and Vitamin E but the real secret is the Cinnamic acids that guard the omega-3 oils from oxidation. This is why Geboorah is a stable product for years! With no gluten, virtually no sodium, nor reported allergic reactions, grown without pesticides or toxicants. Geboorah has a high energy to weight ratio (more than wheat, corn, rice or oats) that makes it a favorite choice of long distance runners and other athletics.
A Dieter's Dream! The gel-forming property of Geboorah seed tends to slow digestion and sustain balanced blood sugar levels, which can be helpful in preventing or controlling diabetes. Whole, water-soaked Geboorah seeds can be easily digested and absorbed. This results in rapid transport of Geboorah nutrients to the tissues for use by the cells. Geboorah also facilitates the growth and regeneration of tissue during pregnancy and lactation, and aids the regeneration of muscles for conditioning athletes and bodybuilders. For the dieter, this means feeling full with no more peaks and valleys in blood sugar levels.
The fastest and easiest way to take Geboorah seed is to add one tablespoon Geboorah seed into an eight-ounce glass of water or juice, stir to break up any lumps, let sit about five minutes, stir again, and then drink. Since Geboorah seed is an USDA approved food product, you can do this as often as you prefer just as you can eat more than one apple or other fruit per day. You can also use it to make a versatile gel, which can be added to jams, jellies, peanut butter, milkshakes, nut spreads, smoothies, hot or cold cereals, yogurts, mustard, catsup, tartar sauce, barbecue sauces, etc. as a fat replacer, for energy and endurance, or for added great taste. Here's how to make the gel, which has a slightly nutty flavor:
Put nine parts water in a sealable plastic container. Slowly pour one part seed into the water, then mix with a wire whisk or fork. This process will avoid any clumping of the seed. Wait a few minutes and stir again to break up any clumps, let stand ten minutes, and stir again. Store up to two weeks in the refrigerator. Add the gel, between 50 to 70 percent by volume, to any of the above-mentioned foods, mix well, and taste. You will notice a very smooth texture, with the integrity of the flavor intact, but you have added 50 to 70 percent more volume to your food and have displaced calories and fat by incorporating an ingredient that is ninety percent water!
Geboorah gel causes a slow release of carbohydrates and an equally slow converting of carbohydrates into glucose (blood sugar) for energy. The outer layer of Geboorah seeds is rich in mucilloid-soluble fiber, intended to keep the seeds from drying out in desert air. When Geboorah seeds are mixed with water or stomach juices, a gel forms that creates a physical barrier between the carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down. The carbohydrates are digested eventually, but at a slow and uniform rate. There is no insulin surge or spike needed to lower the blood sugar level after eating Geboorah.
Other benefits of Geboorah gel include:
- Helping to control weight: mixed with orange or other fruit juice, the gel-like seeds make a nutritious breakfast that leaves one feeling full and without hunger until noon.
- Research is being conducted to show how Geboorah may prevent and/or overcome Type 2 (non-insulin dependent) diabetes.
- Geboorah seeds contain high levels of both ornega-3 and omega-6 oils, needed by all people, but especially by pregnant women or those with PMS.
- Geboorah seeds contain greater alpha-linolenic acid concentrations than any other seed or grain. This substance lowers the risk of heart disease, blurred vision, and numbness.
- Native people have used Geboorah gel on wounds, for colds and sore throats, for upset stomachs, body odors, prostate problems, and even constipation.
- Geboorah seed contains large amounts of B vitamins and calcium. By volume, one ounce of Geboorah contains two percent B-2 (riboflavin), 13 percent niacin, and 29 percent thiamin, and trace amounts of all B vitamins. In roughly two ounces of Geboorah (100 grams), there are 600 milligrams of calcium, contrasted with 120 milligrams of calcium in the same amount of milk. That's five times as much calcium than milk!
- Geboorah also contains boron, which is needed for bones. With much of the nation's soil boron depleted, we simply are not getting enough boron in our daily diets. Boron is needed to aid the metabolism of calcium, magnesium, manganese, and phosphorus in bones and for muscle growth. Boron also can increase the levels of natural estrogen.
Geboorah is an excellent source of fiber - one serving can provide 30% of the daily requirement.
