green juice(NaturalHealth365) How many vibrant green super foods do you consume daily? If it’s taking you a minute to answer, you might not be getting enough. Endlessly nutritious, green super foods are nature’s most abundantly available detoxing and rejuvenating healing foods.

In fact, green super foods have been shown in research to not only confer a wide spectrum of daily nutritional requirements, they’ve been observed to help prevent and even crush certain forms of cancer from replicating, soothe hormonal fluctuations and help get rid of chronic fatigue syndrome.

The top 6 super foods for optimal health and healing

Chlorella: Known as one of nature’s sunshine super foods, chlorella imparts its healing powers via digestion, the immune system and blood. Because it is rich in chlorophyll, vitamins B, C and E as well as various minerals, chlorella has long been used along with other healing foods to help the body produce oxygen-rich red blood cell activity.

Recent evidence suggests that adding chlorophyll to your regime boosts immunity in such as way that even cancer has a difficult time standing up to it. But, watch out for claims that chlorella “removes all heavy metals” – that’s not entirely accurate. (some yes, but all of them, no.) For a quality source, you may want to look into: Clean Chlorella, NOW Foods Chlorella, Source Naturals Chlorella, Jarrow Formulas Chlorella or Sun Chlorella.

Barley Grass: If you think you need cow’s milk to get your daily calcium quotas, guess again – boasting 11 times as much calcium than cow’s milk, barely grass is an excellent functional food for people of all ages.

Easy to add to juices, smoothies or consumed as a health tonic shot, barely grass also contains vitamin B12, an essential nutrient that many vegetarians often find themselves lacking. When barley grass is about 12-14 inches high it contains the most bioavailable forms of its nutrients – this means maximum absorption through the digestive system.

Spirulina: This brilliant green super food is an excellent choice for managing healthy weight loss and a key functional food to assist in stabilizing blood glucose levels, making it especially ideal for diabetics.

If you’re looking to trim animal proteins and worry you won’t get enough, not to fret, spirulina contains approximately 70% protein. A complete protein, meaning it contains all essential amino acids, spirulina is a naturally detoxing food.

If you’re looking for the finest quality spirulina on the planet – visit: Nutrex-Hawaii and order Hawaiian Spirulina.

Leafy greens: While you may already consume broccoli leaves, spinach, collards, swiss chard, mizzen, kale, cilantro and endive, some slightly lesser known leafy greens pack major detoxing properties that help stave off cancer, eliminate heavy metals and regulate immunity.

Watercress: baby leaf watercress contains more antioxidants that found in broccoli and has been shown to reduce cellular damage caused by cancer.

Mustard greens: peppery in taste and similar nutrient density to chard, mustard greens are excellent for cardiovascular and lung health.

Tat soi: rich in vitamins A and C, tat soi can be added to salads or stir fries and confers its benefits to ocular and cardiovascular health.

    I take Spirulina everyday. I think it’s great -but I only buy Nutrex the one that is recommended in this article because of all the testing they do for heavy metals and radiation.

      I’ve been using NaturalNews clean Chlorella/spirulina cambo

    Too much fruit!! Means too much fructose (sugar). You only need one of those fruits and I like a green apple which is more than enough for sweetness. I would use more vegetables. Coconut water or oil or both are great. Just watch the fruit, esp if you have diabetic tendencies!!

  • My detox
    super green is wheatgrass. I take it at least once a week and I eat it raw.
    It was difficult at first, but after some time I’ve gotten used to the taste.
    This is my second year now with wheatgrass and just recently started munching
    barley grass. Not much difference on the
    taste. Lucky to have a local store selling organic produce nearby where I get
    both ‘grass’ fresh.
