What you put into your body is so important! Local brand Herbal Pharm launched in 2004 when Founding Director Mr Vejaiyan saw a gap in the market for high-quality health supplements. The “Made With Passion” brand has now introduced a new Household Collection, featuring four pantry staples with a wellness focus. These healthier choices include black peppercorns, pink salt, coconut sugar and virgin coconut oil.
Organic Tellicherry Black Peppercorns
Tellicherry peppercorns grow organically in Malabar, India. Their fragrant scent is a chef’s secret weapon! The Tellicherry is rarer and larger in size than your regular peppercorn (a Malabar peppercorn wider than 4.75mm is a Tellicherry). The hollow in the pepper helps it bloom notes of lime, lemon and orange, without imparting heat on the tongue. This signature quality enhances the taste of dishes without altering flavours.
Pepper helps digest food and can prevent diarrhoea, bloating and acid reflux. The stomach absorbs nutrients better when pepper is added. In Ayurvedic medicine, pepper and turmeric are used as natural tumour inhibitors. It’s also an antioxidant, making it a must-have in a healthy diet. Herbal Pharm’s Organic Tellicherry Black Peppercorn is sold in 250g nozzle pouches that keep the peppercorns fresh.
Himalayan Natural Pink Salt
Once you’ve tasted the mellowness of Himalayan pink salt, there’s no going back! Pink salt is harvested by hand in Pakistan, contains one-third less sodium and no additives. It contains 84 trace minerals not found in white salt, and may even help to lower blood pressure and promote better sleep.
Herbal Pharm’s Himalayan Natural Pink Salt comes in coarse and fine grinds and is also available in a grinder, perfect for everyday cooking and baking.
Organic Coconut Sugar
Coconut sugar contains many vitamins and minerals, making it superior to – and a healthier choice than artificial sweeteners for instance. The appetising hint of caramel makes this a welcome addition to your daily diet without sacrificing taste or health. Herbal Farm’s Organic Coconut Sugar is unprocessed and contains no chemicals. It comes in a bag or in handy portable sachets that will complement your tea or coffee wherever you go.
Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
Did you know that the history of coconut oil goes back well over 3,000 years? It’s documented in Ayurvedic medicine from as early as 1500 BCE.
Coconut oil can aid in weight loss and may support cardiovascular health. It’s easily digested and also thermogenic, generating a high amount of heat to stimulate the metabolism. This makes it an effective energy booster and fat-burner.
Herbal Pharm’s cold-pressed Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is 100 percent organic. A spoonful a day is recommended; with its low glycaemic index, it’s a healthier choice of dietary oils, widely used in cooking, and as a moisturiser for hair and skin.
