Brief History of Peanut Butter
In 1890, a St. Louis food products company began selling peanut butter
out of barrels for about 6¢ per pound as a protein supplement for
people with poor teeth who couldn’t chew meat. This gave birth to
peanut butter in America. The next step in peanut butter evolution was
introduced in 1922 when a California entrepreneur received a patent for
the first shelf-stable peanut butter that would stay fresh for a year.
This created peanut butter as we know it today, until now.
Peanut PowerButter™ has taken traditional peanut butter paste and
enhanced it with even more beneficial nutrients that our bodies need to
stay healthier, younger, and fit. It’s what peanut butter should
Peanut Butter is a great source of protein and other essential nutrients.
Research has found that peanut butter helps reduce the chances of heart

Flaxseed contains lignans that have anti-viral, anti-bacterial,
anti-fungal and anti-cancer properties. Flaxseeds have the richest source
of lignans, 100 times more than the next best source, wheat bran. The
majority of lignans is found in the seed. Flaxseed also contains lecithin,
which emulsifies fat and cholesterol. These little seeds improve digestion,
help stabilize blood glucose levels, fight tumor formation and enhance

With all the media attention on cholesterol, consumers often lose sight
of the fact that eggs are a nutrient-rich, affordable contributor to a
healthy diet. Not only do eggs contain the highest quality source of protein
available but they also contain almost every essential vitamin and mineral
needed by humans. In fact, egg protein is of such high quality that it
is used as the standard by which other proteins are compared. Eggs have
a biological value (efficacy with which protein is used for growth) of
93.7%. Comparable values are 84.5% for milk, 76% for fish, and 74.3% for
beef. Eggs really are the best protein money can buy. One of the major
protein ingredients in PowerButter™ is egg white, which contains

Flax oil is one of the most beneficial products in the nutrition field
today. Research is continuing to uncover the benefits of flax oil on the
human body. It is shown to have major positive effects on the musculoskeletal,
metabolism, cardiovascular, immune, nervous, and respiratory systems.
Tests have shown that flax oil has improved eyesight and color perception,
as well as helping to fight dry skin conditions, such as dandruff. Flax
oil is one of Nature’s wonders that harnesses more healing power
than many of the wonder pills being marketed today.

Like all fats, Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) provide energy. Their calorific
value is similar to other fats and oils but, unlike saturated fats, they
have important health roles. In fact, as their names suggest, they are
essential and must be consumed regularly, as the body has limited storage
for them. Both of the important EFA families — Omega-3 and Omega-6
— are components of nerve cells and cellular membranes. They are
converted by the body into eicosanoids, leukotrienes and prostaglandins,
all of which are needed on a second-by-second basis by most tissue activities
in the body. Since the end products (e.g., prostaglandin and leukotriene)
differ slightly between Omega-3 and Omega-6, both EFAs must be present
to ensure optimum health.
