Superfood seeds allow you to grow your own medicine and nutrition in your back yard

(NaturalNews) The only thing better than buying superfoods is growing them yourself. Imagine growing and harvesting your own astragalus, goji berries, maca and holy basil. Harvesting and eating these herbs and superfoods fresh out of the dirt is always superior to buying them in powder form.

But to grow them yourself, of course, you need seeds. So where do you get seeds that are non-GMO, organic, wildcrafted and can be trusted to be viable?

I'm thrilled to announce that we've begun carrying a line of wildcrafted and organic superfood seeds from a great company called Blackbird Naturals that redirects 100% of its profits back to replanting organic gardens.

The best deal is the Superfood Seed Collection, which ships in a nice, small wooden gift box with each individual seed type packed in a small seed tin. It really makes a great gift pack. It looks like a gift, and it wraps like a gift, too. Inside, you'll find the following:

Seeds, health, preparedness and more

I'm a huge believer in seed saving and seed preparedness. Seeds are the key to growing your own food and medicine in both good times and bad.

In good times, you can inexpensively grow both food and medicine right in your own back yard, effectively giving you access to a "plant pharmacy" without needing a doctor, a prescription or interference from the FDA.

In bad times such as a temporary economic collapse or social disorder, seeds are the key to keeping you and your family alive when the food deliveries stop. There's very little food inventory in the national food supply, as you probably have already figured out. That's why grocery store shelves are stripped bare in just a day or two before a major hurricane or winter snow storm.

I've been a long-term advocate of sensible preparedness, and I've always stocked and stored dried foods, seeds, water filters and other items to get through any emergency. People always think I'm a Mormon because I follow Mormon philosophy on preparedness. I'm not Mormon, but I happen to think those folks are the smartest group on the planet when it comes to surviving the unexpected.

Seeds are a crucial part of any preparedness plan, and if you know anything about seeds, you also know you have to stock non-hybrid seeds so you can propagate your plants from one generation to the next.

Now, these seeds we're offering right now on NaturalNews are not garden vegetable seeds. They're superfoods and herbs. But next year we hope to begin offering heirloom, organic garden vegetable seeds as well. It's something that's high on our list of priorities of things to offer to the NaturalNews readers so that we can all be better prepared for the unexpected.

I'm also starting a new garden this coming spring and I plan to video that project and share it with you.

Growing plants is a lifelong love of mine. I used to grow succulents as a teenager. In Arizona, I experimented with growing hydroponic vegetables and successfully grew tomatoes, cucumbers, parsley and other plants using organic nutrients (with no soil). In Ecuador, I created a massive superfood orchard of over 100 trees, with a garden on the side where we grew enough food to donate cabbage and more to the local poor people in town.

I also planted and grew a massive aloe vera garden and gave away aloe as part of a local anti-cancer tonic for folks who were suffering from cancer tumors.

This coming spring, I'll be planting these superfood seeds in a new garden I already have on the drawing board. I can't wait to start harvesting my own holy basil, goji berries, astragalus and other herbs and superfoods. This is the way we're supposed to get our medicine, after all.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
