Almond activation is an important part of our creation process. It awakens the life force of our organic almonds, increases the bioavailability of their minerals, and adds a deeper dimension of flavour.

Although there’s controversy between the scientific and alt-med communities on the benefits of nut activation, there is a magic and mystery to this ancient process that’s hard to ignore. Here’s everything you need to know about activated nuts and how they can support a higher state of wellbeing.

What are activated nuts?

Activated nuts are simply nuts that have been soaked in water and salt for a period of time, usually 6 to 12 hours. The activation process stimulates germination – the sprouting of the seed into a plant. This process unlocks the dormant creative powers of the nut, releasing all the natural enzymes and potent nutrients utilised to grow into new life.

What’s so special about our activation process?

We activate our organic Spanish almonds with the world-renowned Malvern Water from the Malvern Hills in the UK – a high-vibrational, pure spring water filtered through 200-million-year-old volcanic rock and limestone. It also happens to be the Queen of England’s choice of H20.

Once collected from our local Malvern well, the activation water is supercharged with Pink Himalayan Salt and the essence of Quartz Crystal. From a hygienic perspective, studies in Germany have shown that the gem essence assists in maintaining the water’s purity by preventing the growth of bacteria. While energetically, it works to amplify the auric field of each almond and increase its energetic frequency.

As the almonds “awaken”, we bathe them in ancient sound healing frequencies to “lock in” our intention to create a blend aligned with your higher good.

Once soaked, we slowly dehydrate the almonds at 42°C to ensure the gentle preservation of nutrients and enzymes for optimal nutritional power. The result is a remarkably less bitter and crunchier almond, that feels much lighter and easier on your digestive system.

Why do we activate our almonds?

We believe the activation of our almonds is key to creating the living, high-vibrational nature of our plant cream concentrates.

Inspired by the ancient Aztecs practice of soaking nuts in sea water, activation stimulates the beginning of the germination process. This “awakens” the almonds’ dormant life-giving phytonutrients and enzymes that are beneficial to optimal wellbeing.

Activation also helps wash away the almond’s natural defence mechanism which contain nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances. These natural toxins include enzyme inhibitors, phytates (phytic acid), polyphenols (tannins) and goitrogens which can cause bloating and breakouts. By releasing and neutralising these toxins, activation assists in increasing digestibility and absorption of minerals.

While there are no scientific studies proving the benefits of nut activation, after years perfecting our creation process, it became clear that there was a superior difference in the taste and vibration of our blends using activated almonds. We hope you can feel it too.
