Sacha inchi

Dear friends of Gramm Bulkshop, here we share some information about Sacha inchi:

The consumption of Sacha inchi is recommended, since studies have shown that it helps reduce high cholesterol and triglycerides, protects the heart and is an ally against metabolic syndrome.

The oil of this seed is very useful in the primary prevention of cardiovascular diseases.

It contains anti-inflammatory properties, being useful for people suffering from arthritis, rheumatism and osteoporosis. On the other hand, it is effective for skin and hair care.

In addition, it helps regulate blood pressure, prevent myocardial infarction, thrombosis and reduce blood flow.

It has a higher percentage of unsaturated fatty acids and a lower percentage of saturated fats than all the oilseeds in the world.
It is useful for the recovery of patients and essential in the diet of the elderly.

Sacha Inchi has a relaxing effect, helps fight stress, fatigue and mental exhaustion. Together, these properties contribute to delaying the aging process in people

It has a high content of oils with omega 3, 6 and 9 of great importance for nutrition and the prevention of chronic diseases.

In addition, it has 93.6% protein and essential amino acids, which are not produced by the body and must be consumed to maintain good health.

This plant, native to the Amazon, has various medicinal properties. Also known as the “peanut of the Incas”, it can be found in the form of oils, flours, roasted seeds and in its natural state.
The consumption of Sacha Inchi is recommended continuously. In the form of roasted seeds, 7 to 10 units per day is recommended.

We want to reduce the use of plastic. We use paper covers and we invite you to bring your favorite bag.

EMF blocking pouches, air purifiers, dehumidifiers, and translators

EMF blocking phone pouches are back in stock at CosasPrep. These are the same black ones that we previously sold out of twice. $15. They will not allow tracking or hacking of your phone, credit cards, etc. and will protect your body from harmful EMFs.

What should I do if I get into a car accident in Ecuador?

In Ecuador only 23% of Ecuadorians who own a vehicle are privately insured. Due to this, the SPATT (Transit Accident Payment Services) was created in order to provide protection for people in accidents who do not have the economic resources available to cover related health costs.

“The creation of SPPAT corresponds to a policy designed to guarantee public health and above all dignify citizens, especially the most vulnerable who do not have any type of protection against unforeseen accidents throughout the national territory” (Romel Castro, Executive Director SPATT).

The SPATT is required insurance at a reduced cost that is paid together with the vehicle registration cost. The cost is subject to variations depending on the model and year of your vehicle and is only paid once a year. This insurance covers emergencies up to $3,000, ambulance expenses up to $200, funeral expenses up to $400, and in the event of death a family member of the victim can obtain economic relief at a maximum of $5,000. Once SPATT is applied, your private vehicle insurance may cover some additional health expenses, although it is important to remember that not all private vehicle policies have civil liability insurance. This is something to verify when buying a policy for your vehicle. In Ecuador, the policies cover not only the contracting party but also civil liability of any kind, as long as you have contracted this service within your policy. If you opt for a very low cost policy you could only obtain coverage in cases of total loss which could give you larger legal and economic problems than expected. You would be required to cover the expenses of the affected party in its entirety on your own.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) + Vitamin C IV therapy- Energy for your Cells

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a fat-soluble, vitamin-like compound produced naturally in the body.

It is an essential element for many health systems since it is required to function in every single cell in the body properly. In order to sustain enough energy to perform bodily functions, the mitochondria in our cells use fat and other nutrients to create useable energy sources- this critical conversion process is only made possible by enough CoQ10.

Coq10 is a highly potent antioxidant used in medical practice to protect cells from the effects of aging and free radicals.

Although the body creates its CoQ10, it does not always do so consistently or adequately. As we age or become ill, our bodies can become less efficient at producing this essential compound, and a lack of CoQ10 is associated with decreased energy, the damaging effects of oxidative stress, declining cognition, Diabetes, cancer, fibromyalgia, heart disease, muscle conditions, and other health ailments.

Escape the Intermediate Spanish “Twilight Zone”

Are you trapped in the intermediate Spanish “Twilight Zone?”

• Do you feel like you’re making no progress, even after hundreds of hours of study and classes?
• Are you still hesitant to speak and when you try you, find yourself tongue-tied?
• When somebody speaks to you in Spanish, does your mind go blank—except for the question flashing “What did they just say?”
Take a deep breath. You are not in the “Zwlight zone”. You are experiencing the “intermediate plateau” and it happens to just about every student of a new language.

After the first burst of knowledge, you notice your progress slowing and you wonder what happened to the rapid improvement you saw at the beginning.
If you want to shake off those uncomfortable feelings and enjoy speaking Spanish, let’s talk.


Spanish Classes for intermediate level in small group for November

If you’re an intermediate level speaker, chances are good that you have these problems:

1. Difficulty understanding native speakers
2. Translating in your head before you speak
Learning to speak Spanish is a wonderful adventure. And adventures shouldn’t stop!

So, if you’re stuck at the basic level don’t settle or decide to stay there. You’ve got places to go and things to learn!

If you want to improve and move beyond basic to intermediate, the key is to add solid resources to your program. And then you’ve just got to practice!
My courses will offer you an efficient and comfortable way to learn the language.

The Spanish intermediate level course will teach you Spanish skills such as…


Offering Spanish Classes for beginners 2, in small group in November

Spanish Classes for beginners 2 in a small group for November 21st.
Immerse yourself in a new concept of learning Spanish quickly and efficiently. Learn Spanish with a qualified and experienced teacher. You will cover basic topics, useful for everyday conversation, including talking about yourself, making hotel or dinner reservations, take taxis, etc. You will be introduced to various language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing skills with group exercises and weekly homework).

If you are planning to relocate to Cuenca, either temporarily or for good, learning Spanish is a must in order to get the most out of your experience. The real world – full of Cuencanos – is right outside your door and by speaking just a bit more of Spanish you will quickly find life is so much more exciting.

The classes will be held in a fun, stress-free manner. The course will begin on Monday, 21st of November 11:30 AM to 1 PM three days a week for 4 weeks. (Days will be determined for the students) Total hours of the course: 18 hours.

Cost $100 Including handouts.

Hi everyone,

For the past month I have been volunteering with the lawyers at Juridik Law Firm. I am from Pennsylvania in the US and am studying in Cuenca, Ecuador. I have really enjoyed my experience at Juridik Law Firm. The lawyers are certified in all types of law and have invaluable experience.

I have been interning specifically under the advisement of Rafael Arizaga, helping people from all around the world apply for Ecuadorian immigration visas. Navigating immigration law and applying for visas can be a complicated and frustrating process.

I highly recommend the lawyers at Juridik if you are thinking about applying for an Ecuadorian visa or need any other type of legal assistance
