Nutrient Chart

This is only a rough guide as the determining factor of the nutrient content is ultimately the soil the vegetable was grown in. The table clearly demonstrates that the ingredients of The Culinary Caveman powders are amongst the most nutritious from the plant kingdom.

Selenium Works with iodine in thyroid hormone production. Anti-oxidant, protects against free-radicals, making it an anti-carcinogen. It assists the roles of vitamins B3, C, E and zinc. Deficiency is common. 50mcg Sunflower seeds 53mcg (Brazil nuts 1,950mcg, Nuts avg. 420,mcg, Tuna 60mcg, Crab 50mg)
