Symons’ Super Mix was first developed by Ernie Symons, inventor of the oil can—called “Symons’ oiler” in the 1920s. More than 15,000 of his oil cans were used during World War II to keep tanks from seizing up during battle. The product was so acclaimed that even today, a life-size oiler can stands at the entrance to the town of Rocanville, Saskatchewan, home to Symons’ original manufacturing plant.
But after years of standing on hard concrete and crimping metal cans together in his Oiler factory, Symons developed severe rheumatoid arthritis and sciatica. While researching natural ways to improve his condition, he learned of the healing properties of alfalfa, an herb used to this day to treat rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, diabetes and many other ailments.
Symons went on to create a handmade alfalfa-meal product with millet, buckwheat and barley. Eventually dubbed Symons’ Super Mix, the product became renowned throughout Canada and the United states as a treatment for conditions related to the heart, digestive and respiratory systems, in addition to improving blood sugar and boosting the immune system.
The Most Alkaline Natural Food Supplement
Symons’ original philosophy was to supply the body with necessary nutrients that are not overly processed, chemically treated and devitalized in the food supply, as most food supplements on the market are.
The Symons’ Super Mix formula today holds fast to that philosophy, comprising mostly of alfalfa-leaf meal grown on the Canadian prairies and cut at the pre-flowering stage, when the alfalfa leaf is at its nutritional peak. Alfalfa leaves contain up to 80 percent of the plant’s nutrients and are naturally dried to ensure the consumer absorbs the maximum amount of nutrients.
Today’s formula also includes organically grown buckwheat and millet, rosehip meal and pacific kelp (the barley was removed make the food supplement suitable for people with gluten intolerances), and is made of ingredients containing high levels of naturally occurring minerals such as calcium and magnesium, B vitamins and various trace elements
Health Benefits of Symons’ Super Mix
Alfalfa, known as the “king of chlorophyll,” is high in healthy digestive enzymes and alkalinity—good for bone health and reducing inflammation—and the high-protein, low-starch millet helps eliminate excess fermentation in the gut. The buckwheat is a great mineral source of manganese and rutin, which helps combat blood-sugar disorders, allergies and digestive issues.
What makes Symons’ Super Mix a great natural food supplement is its wide representation of the best herbal, grain, berry and seaweed sources, all complementing one another other in the body. It is not synthetic, nor does it contain any added ingredients derived from synthetic sources. It’s also the most alkaline-forming phytonutrient product available, making it a complete greens formula.
