HEALTHY NATURAL PRODUCTS – WHICH MEANS?
Natural products are healthy, but are all creations of nature actually ecological? Much depends on how and where they are cultivated. Farmlands located close to roads, where artificial fertilizers and pesticides are being used, can hardly be called ecological. The hulls obtained from organically grown cereals have biological value, which you won’t find in case of cereals that are grown using chemical fertilizers, where the biological value decreases by at least 50%. Artificial additives, pesticides, as well as atmospheric pollution affect the reduction in the quality of crops. Selecting grains, we avoid above all pesticides and nitrates, which have a negative impact on our body. Pesticides damage the work of many of the internal organs; deregulate the hormonal balance and lower resistance to infections. Nitrite at high levels in the body may cause cyanosis of infants and children, and after a prolonged use – are leading to cancer. These substances can enter the body through the skin, therefore, we especially verify whether the grains used at I Love Grain are cultivated on organic farms.
To keep all the beneficial qualities of cereals, it is necessary to care for their quality at every stage – beginning from the crops, through storing and distribution, and ending with the process itself. We pay attention to every aspect in order to guarantee our customers complete security and satisfaction. The ecological grain hulls have hypoallergenic properties; inhibit the growth of microorganisms, bacteria and dust mites. In addition, they block the adverse electromagnetic field, and the quiet rustle of grains pouring inside the pillowcase soothes nerves and helps sleeping.
I Love Grain mean not only eco-friendly pillows, but a return to the most natural environment as the nature is. We use all this, which is given to us by the Earth in best possible way and use also the knowledge transmitted by our ancestors. They knew very well that nature will take care of us, provided that we will take care of the nature.
MOTHER NATURE KNOWS WHAT IS HEALTHY
This is one of the most valued crops, with a history dating back more than 4,000 years. Already in ancient times it was known for its extraordinary properties, not only as food, but also for therapeutic and nourishing qualities. These seeds are protected by hulls and that is what we use in our products. Hulls are hard, but at the same time flexible, so they have the ability to adjust to the body shape. Already centuries ago they were used as filler for pillows and mattresses for rich people living in luxury. Currently, none of the artificial materials is able to compete with buckwheat in terms of comfort, ergonomics and health values.
Learn about the priceless features of hulls and their application. Here are just some of them:
- Allergenic properties – red eyes, itchy skin or early morning runny nose will soon be forgotten. Buckwheat does not cause allergy, in addition it contains theanine, a substance which hinders the development and reproduction of dust mites and bacteria.
- Anti-bedsore properties – pillows or mattresses filled with hull spontaneously adapt to the position of the lying person preventing pressure ulcers and skin sore.
- Absorb moisture – scales allow a continuous exchange of heat and moisture between the body and its surroundings, which make the mattress or pillow do not heat up from the body temperature and absorbs perspiration to evaporate it into the environment.
- A better relaxation, less stress – buckwheat properties include neutralization of harmful electromagnetic radiation; it is also an excellent reflector.
- Stimulate microcirculation and peripheral circulation – accessories filled with buckwheat hulls can be successfully used as products for body massage, stimulating microcirculation and peripheral circulation.
- Thermal comfort – a simple pillow filled with synthetic material heats up very quickly, while with buckwheat hull it maintains a constant, comfortable temperature, ensuring a pleasant and relaxing night’s sleep. This stops the continuous turning of pillows to the cooler side.
ATTENCION! Remember to always thoroughly dry pillowcase before you put the hulls in it again. For those who have chosen buckwheat husks we recommend buying an additional pillowcase so that every month the husk can be transferred into a fresh pillowcase, to avoid discoloration. It allows the pillowcase to remain white and retain the aesthetic qualities
