The Center for Food Safety emailed me an alert this week and I thought I would share excerpts of its important message:
“A recent study (printed in The Journal of American Medical Association and reported in The New York Times) that followed 70,000 adults for five years, most of them women, found that the most frequent consumers of organic food had 25 percent fewer cancers over the course of their lives than those who never ate organic food. This latest study supports what we at Center for Food Safety (CFS) have been advocating all along: choosing organic foods isn’t a lifestyle, but a lifesaver. We will continue to work to protect organics, ban pesticides affecting our health and farmworkers, and to increase access so that everyone can enjoy the benefits that come from eating organic foods. We know that pesticide residues are detected four times more often in conventional food than they are in organic food. And we know that eating organic foods lowers the risk of impairment in the physical and mental development of children.”1
The executive leadership at Nikken is on the same page as the Center for Food Safety. For example, the HiOmega® flaxseed oil powder found in our proprietary blend in Kenzen Omega Green + DHA is cold pressed, all-natural and non-GMO.2 As such, each harvest of organic flaxseeds produces variations in color and smell, dependent upon the season and soil conditions. A recent batch has produced a “vinegary” odor. It is the highly beneficial linoleic acid within the flaxseed oil that “produces a slightly different distribution of odorants.”3 Our manufacturers requested replacing the flaxseed oil with a non-organic seed in order to rid the product of its odor. (Non-organic seeds are highly processed and therefore have much fewer beneficial properties left.) The Nikken response? Keep the all-natural organic flaxseed for optimal Active Wellness.
Nikken is committed to using high-quality ingredients even if they are much more expensive. Admittedly, some of you may find the vinegary smell unpleasant. However, it’s still better than the fishy smell that comes from fish oil. And, flaxseeds contain more polyphenols than vegetables like olives and blueberries, an added bonus. Fish oil does not contain any polyphenols.
Kenzen Omega Green + DHA is 100 percent vegetarian and contains all three omega fatty acids, 3, 6, 9. The proprietary formula of cranberry seed oil, flaxseed oil and red algae comes from renewable sources and the flaxseed oil in particular, is cold pressed to avoid heat. (Heat tends to deteriorate the beneficial effects of omega-3 fatty acids.) Omega fatty acids help support healthy heart, brain nerve and eye function. They help maintain cardiovascular health and help support digestive health and hormone balance as well as the cellular membranes in the skin, heart and brain. Omega fattyacids also are believed to help reduce periodic sleeplessness and carbohydrate cravings.*

The “3” in Omega-3 refers to the three major types of fatty acids that are found in food and used by our bodies. They are: ALA-alpha-linolenic acid, EPA-eicosapentaenoic acid and DHA-dicosahexaenoic acid. Once consumed, the human body converts ALA to EPA and DHA. Because the human body can create EPA and DHA in this way, they are not considered essential fatty acids. On the other hand, ALA cannot be produced by the human body and is considered an essential fatty acid that needs to be obtained from the diet. Omega-3s are important components of virtually all cell membranes, so having a balance of these fatty acids are necessary to maintain good health.
ALA is found in land-based plant foods, especially nuts, seeds, soybeans, green leafy vegetables, and some refined oils like walnut and flax seed oil. Since EPA and DHA are found in so few food types, when you hear people say omega-3 fatty acids, they are almost always referencing alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).1
Due to the many reported health benefits, many healthcare professionals recommend daily supplements, whether they’re omega vegetarian capsules made from algae, from fish oil (salmon, mackerel, anchovies, tuna, etc.), or from a crustacean (krill). For those with shellfish allergies, krill oil should be avoided.
Known as a primary source of omegas, supplements made from fish oil are by far the cheapest. Given how polluted the oceans are, fish oils can be contaminated with a variety of toxins. The process of detoxifying fish oils increases the oxidation and diminishes the omega and nutrient content. In addition, the world’s fish supply is diminishing in direct contrast to the increasing toxic load of the fish.
Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 oils have been identified as being especially important. An omega supplement must offer all three of these oils to be of greatest value. The importance of supplementation with omega fatty acids for heart health and brain health2 is in direct conflict with the risk of ingesting toxins through fish oils.
Nikken has been aware of this dichotomy for years. The answer is Kenzen Omega Green + DHA The plant sourced omega fatty acids for Kenzen Omega Green + DHA are cranberry seed oil, flax seed oil and red algae, each of which is easily renewable.
- Cranberry seed oil contains naturally occurring substances called phytosterols that structurally resemble the human body’s cholesterol. Phytosterols reduce LDL (bad cholesterol) but do not affect HDL (good cholesterol). Eating foods with phytosterols may cut the risk for heart disease when consumed as part of a healthy eating plan, according to the Cleveland Clinic. 3 Cranberry seed oil is considered unique among fixed oils because it contains a very high essential fatty acid profile in addition to a high antioxidant load. 4
- Flax seed oil contains ALA and has been advocated to combat cardiovascular disease. The use of flax seed oil as a nutritional intervention for the prevention of heart disease has received increasing amounts of research attention. 5
- Red algae has been used for thousands of years as a food source, especially in Asian cultures. It is high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are easily utilized by the human body to help boost the immune system and nourish skin. The main benefits of red algae are its ability to promote healthy circulation in the body, to help regulate blood sugar levels and to help lower bad cholesterol levels. High in dietary fiber, it is also a rich source of calcium and magnesium so it contributes to bone health.6
Consuming Kenzen Omega Green + DHA gives you all the benefits of an omega supplement and none of the risks. It helps carnivores, vegetarians and vegans to obtain the right balance of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 for Active Wellness without the risk associated with fish oil toxins.

WHAT IS A "WELLNESS HOME?"
by John Jackson, M.D., FACP
A Wellness Home is a unique concept created by Nikken, the world’s only total wellness company. This R&D giant has operations in over a dozen countries around the globe, marketing scientifically proven technologies, integrated for natural healing and prevention. Nikken resembles Microsoft with a “point and click” operating system for wellness, easy to grasp and simple to use.
Microsoft was founded in 1975 at Albuquerque, New Mexico. Nikken was founded in 1975 at Fukuoka, Japan. Microsoft opened its first international office in
Japan. Nikken opened its international headquarters in Irvine, California. Microsoft’s mission was "a computer on every office desk and in every home." Nikken’s mission is “every home a Wellness Home.”
What is a Wellness Home? Most simply, it is a restored and pristine habitat for humanity, a greenhouse for the human body. The body itself is home to 100 trillion cells. One neglected pre-cancerous cell could eventually endanger the whole organism. In order for us to be well, the optimal function of all our cells needs attention.
What each cell requires for health:
· Pure, smooth, great tasting, hydrating, alkaline water in adequate amounts to support circulation, deliver oxygen and nutrients, to eliminate wastes (opportunity for disease arises when the immune system lacks supply or is encumbered by toxins)
· Proper sleep, in quantity and quality, for body repair/regeneration of cells. According to Dr. Williams C. Dement, M.D., PhD., the world’s leading authority on sleep and the dangers of sleep deprivation states…”Healthy sleep has been empirically proven to be the single most important determinant in predicting LONGEVITY. More important than diet, exercise or heredity.”
· Whole food supplements to fill gaps in our diet and fully nourish cells
· Full spectrum of nature’s energy (magnetic, ionic and infra-red), 24/7
Nikken, the world’s only total wellness company, provides all of the above in highest quality through the Wellness Home. This offers the perfect means for urgently needed Self-Care. The fabric of modern society is threatened by potential breakdown of a healthcare system overburdened with management of diseases mostly traced to poor lifestyle and a contaminated environment.
Thoughtful individuals welcome the option of natural healing and prevention, leaving doctors and nurses to care for those more critically ill.
Are you ready to use the best blueprint and build a future of better health and well being for the whole family?
A four year old boy’s seizures he had been having since he was 18 months old, coincidentally stopped, and he started talking which he hadn’t been doing before...after living in a wellness home for three weeks.
A gentleman in Sydney, Australia cancelled the surgeries he had scheduled to have his right hand and both feet amputated... after living in a wellness home.
A good friend who was scalded very badly when a pressure cooker sprayed boiling water on her face and chest recovered very quickly without discomfort and no residual scaring...because they live in a wellness home.
A young man from Tacoma, WA had seizures all his life and was a failing college student before discovering a
wellness home. Coincidentally, he no longer has seizures and is married and doing well.
A woman from California and her husband were guests in our wellness home for two days, when she exclaimed that this was the first time in years she woke up without her neck hurting. They also couldn’t believe how well they slept and how high the sun was in the sky when they awoke!
A man from Everett, WA couldn’t get one of his shoes off one evening. After rolling back the tongue of his shoe, he discovered the point of a three inch nail sticking through the top of his foot! He couldn’t feel it, as he hadn’t been able to feel anything with his feet for a long time. After discovering a wellness home, he can now feel the difference between carpet, slate and wood flooring when his shoes are off.
A lady in California had been on her feet for 45 years working on women’s hair. She said she couldn’t touch her thigh, as it was very tender and she couldn’t squat, and she had to lower herself to the toilet and back up with her hands on the counter. She then discovered a wellness home...and after 24 hours she was able to touch her thigh and squat completely to the floor and back up several times.
A young man from Georgia had been in a coma for a year, then home with his parents for seven years...but was non verbal and had to be fed, clothed, etc., by them everyday. After his parents created a wellness home, he started to talk and function like never before.
We have lived in a wellness home for over 25 years, and hardly ever get sick and are as active as ever. Because of having a wellness home, I (Dennis) survived two severe challenges with my heart, and have now been declared 100% good by the doctors, other than the scar tissue from my by-pass surgeries years ago. Bad genetics are in my family, as I lost my father at age 51, my younger brother at age 34, my dad’s
brother at 56, etc. We are very thankful to have a wellness home to live in! I’m the only guy left and going
strong at 76.
Note: We are in no position to diagnose, prescribe, heal, cure, or prevent anything. The above coincidences are just what has been observed by people living in a wellness home...an environment that is the healthiest you could possibly live in. It’s like building a greenhouse around your family...a Safe Haven or Self Care Sanctuary, if you will.
We highly recommend that you create a Wellness Home for your family, and give them the protection and
benefits it provides. Choose to be “Healthy by Choice...Not by Chance!”
