The secret to healthier rice is in the soil,” boasts Johnny Hunter, president of Castor River Farms, whose family has cultivated premium quality sustainably grown grains for the Delta Region of Southeast Missouri since 1954. Castor River Farms was exhibited at the 39th annual Natural Products Expo West & Engredea, the world’s largest natural, organic and healthy products event March 5-9, 2019 at the Anaheim Convention Center. The Hunters manufacture their products without tilling, burning or flooding their precious soil or using fungicides or insecticides.

The Hunter Family employs sophisticated conservation practices that have helped ensure that their land will prosper for generations to come. Castor River Farms uses the “cover crops method” to protect their soil’s health and fertility. The result is a thicker crop bed, which absorbs more water, with less top-soil run-off.

The farm’s “no tilling method” lowers top-soil erosion which reduces the quantity of water needed to irrigate their fields. They use less fuel for their agricultural machines yielding less carbon-emissionsfrom the farms. “We are hands-on from seed to shelf to ensure every bag is filled with premium grains,” says Mr. Hunter.

Whether you are craving the fluffy and rapidly cooked goodness of white rice or the nutty flavor and bran filled deliciousness of brown rice, you’ll value its impact on your diet. 

“Our farm’s long grain rice provides a rich source of vitamins, minerals and fibers which is very important to our health conscious customers. I love to cook our rice for my family, and you will too,” says Mr. Hunter.

Naturally gluten-free, Castor River Farms’ rice is a wholesome choice for consumers with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Other benefits include:

•         Fiber:            Helps the digestive system.

•         Potassium:    Helps lower blood pressure. 

•         Folate           Helps new cells develop; which is especially important for growing kids.

•         Phosphorus: Helps build strong bones.

•         Magnesium:  Helps keep nerves working properly.

An active member of its community, the Castor River Farms family is philanthropically focused and participates each year in the “18 Fore Life Golf Tournament” that benefits the local V-Foundation whose own team of doctors is focused on cancer research.

How to Get Castor River Farms Products:

Distributors including Paris Brothers, Cohen Foods, Jim Riley and The Brenmar Company are currently on board delivering to prestigious stores including Hy-Vee, Fresh Thymes Farmers Market, Schnucks, Dierbergs Markets, Cosentino’s, Local Harvest, Herban Market, Smokers Market, New Dawn, amongst others.

The company also offers e-commerce options on its own website or on Amazon.  

Castor River Farms is a Missouri based, family-operated farm dedicated to freshness, sustainability and quality products. Intended to improve lives through better foods, Castor River Farms sells premium white and brown long-grain rice.

Mouthwatchers – Invented By A Dentist

Do you want to get the feeling of a professional teeth cleaning at home? The answer is definitely Yes! Dr. Plotka’s brushes keep your teeth clean with their two innovative features. The first is their antimicrobial technology. The bristles on each toothbrush are infused with natural bacteria-fighting silver that kills 99.9% of bacteria within 6 hours after brushing! An untreated toothbrush can grow up to 100 million microorganisms between brushings. That’s gross! Dr. Plotka’s naturally antimicrobial brushes are here to eliminate that problem!

The second way Dr. Plotka’s toothbrushes innovate is with their amazing Flossing Bristles. These bristles are ultra-thin (1 micrometer!) at the tip, allowing them to reach areas that other toothbrushes often miss. Plus, they’re made out of polyester, so they last longer than traditional toothbrush bristles (up to 4 months instead of 3)!

While you enjoy having clean, healthy teeth and gums thanks to Dr. Plotka, your little ones can too–Dr. Plotka’s toothbrushes come in a smaller “youth” size as well!

Why I choose Mouthwatchers by Doctor Plotka:

  • OFFERS DIFFERENT STYLES – Comes in adult and youth sizes as well as a travel toothbrush
  • NATURALLY ANTIMICROBIAL* BRISTLES For Better Health – Infused with silver to naturally eliminate 99.9% of bacteria that grows on the bristles between uses
  • FLOSSING BRISTLES™ – Revolutionary, dual-layered bristle structure provides superior cleaning: the outer bristles, thin as a human hair, gently brush away food and plaque in places other brushes miss! 
  • LONG LASTING POLYESTER BRISTLES – You’ll get up to one extra month worth of use thanks to the polyester bending and upgraded properties. 
  • Dentist Developed – Dr. Ronald Plotka designed this innovative toothbrush as part of his thriving 40+ year Boston-based dental practice.

GET EVEN! Reduce Hyperpigmentation and Uneven Skin Tone

If you have a flawless complexion – read no further! But, if you are like a lot of women who have unwanted hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, breakouts or uneven skin tone and wonder what you can do to “even the score,” Glyderm® offers options.

One of the best things you can do to see noticeable results is to consult your dermatologist for a series of GlyDerm Esterified Glycolic Acid Peels. The peels are safe, quick, painless and do not require any downtime. Plus they can produce the results you’re hoping for – a renewed, glowing look with enhanced tone and texture and a reduction in hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkle and breakouts.

“Gentle exfoliation is essential for refreshed, radiant looking skin, and glycolic acid is a key ingredient for exfoliation,” shared New York City based Dermatologist, Dr. Marnie Nussbaum. “Many people don’t know that glycolic acid is also helpful reducing uneven pigmentation. I like GlyDerm products, an exfoliating home maintenance program, because they deliver glycolic acid through a controlled-release system that allows for gentle exfoliation. These products are ideal for use after an in-office glycolic peel to continue exfoliating and gently revive dull complexions while helping to minimize the appearance of unwanted pigmentation and irregularities. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen! Cool temperatures do not eliminate the damaging effects of UV rays.”

A Quinoa Hair Product that Works Wonders for Hair!

Did you know that the new mother of all grains, Quinoa, if hydrolyzed, does wonders for the hair? The reason being, it penetrates through the cuticles and supplements the protein loss that happens through coloring, bleaching, sun, sea and age. Quinoa’s natural protein content is far more than any other grain. Furthermore the quinoa protein composition is almost identical to the protein composition of the hair. So when the proteins come in contact, they immediately bond together, making the hair stronger and rebuilding it naturally to prevent breakage and split ends. It also protects against hair loss and thinning for both men and women.

You can now use the quinoa protein to add to your chemical color at home (a cap full) or take it the salon to put in 0.25 oz into one application of 2 oz of color or into one scoop of bleach to give back the protein the hair loses. The difference is amazing and could be felt and seen right away.

Introducing Quinoaplex by ONC, made of the new miracle grain “quinoa”, that transforms hair when hydrolyzed and molecules are then small enough to get through the cuticles of the hair to penetrate into the hair shaft. Quinoaplex by ONC is therefore beneficial because hair is made of 85% Protein which also is called Keratin. Washing hair, color/bleach and/or its exposure to sun, causes loss of protein, thinning of hair (men & women), hair loss and hair breakage.

Quinoaplex by ONC provides:

– lasting shine
– manageability without the need of any gels or hairspray.
– shorter time of hair drying
– decreases hair loss, thinning and breakage
– increases the lasting of hair color
– soothing irritated scalp
– it allows the hair to be colored and bleached with much less damage more often as the protein that the hair loses, is given back with the hydrolyzed quinoa protein.

Other great benefits of quinoa hair protein are:

It promotes growth
Helps the pigmentation of your hair color
Its minerals are natural hair strengtheners
Protect your hair from environmental damaging agents like air pollution.

Use: Shampoo hair and towel dry. Spray on evenly all over hair and then massage till it lathers. Leave for 10-15 min. Then rinse and condition (leave on for 3 min). If you don’t have time, you can just leave it on and not bother with the rinsing and conditioner. You can also add a cap full ( 0.25 fl. oz.) into any chemical box color right before coloring at home. Take it to your salon and ask or insist the colorist put in a cap full ( 0.25 fl. oz.) into  your chemical color or bleach solution. It does not interfere with ratios, developeror formula time. You can see its effects after one application. But never use immediately after hair coloring. Wait 3-4 days.

QUINOAPLEX R₃ the organic based bond builder and protein conditioner. Developed for professional use, quinoa protein and the protein composition of hair and nails are almost identical. So when the proteins come together they immediately bond, making the hair stronger, and rebuilding it naturally.
