(NaturalHealth365) Superfoods will be our medicine of the future. We can heal ourselves of anything, feel great all the time and ultimately help others experience the same thing. The simple truth is we become what we eat. So let’s explore the most delicious (ancient) gifts of forgotten civilizations…nutrient-rich , low in calorie foods that promise to strengthen your body and mind.
Can you imagine having energy (all day), feeling alert, creative and, of course, disease free your entire life? Well, you can, providing you feed yourself correctly. It’s an experience you’ll want to share with the world.
The Best Foods on the Planet
Cacao (“real” chocolate) is a nut like an almond. Originally, from Central America, this 5,000 year old gift from nature is one of the most powerful foods on the planet. Cacao is rich in antioxidants, ten times higher (than any other food) in magnesium, iron & chromium. And, best of all, it’s delicious!
Goji berries, from over 8,000 items, is the #1 food in traditional Chinese medicine. Contrary to popular belief, it’s a complete protein with all 18 essential amino acids in high amounts. Try soaking these berries (for just a few minutes) and you’ll enjoy a raisin-type texture. These berries are known to support detoxification.
Maca, originally from the Andes Mountains, is a cruciferous vegetable like broccoli and cauliflower. It is the most powerful radish in the world. Maca has anti-cancer nutrients, over 20 fatty acids and offers 20 differenct amino acids. It’s also a famous aphrodiasiac – try some – you might like it.
Bee Pollen has every nutrient needed to support life. Bee-gathered pollens are rich in proteins, free amino acids, vitamins, including B-complex, and folic acid. This valuable food can help you improve your endurance and vitality. Great for disease prevention, bee pollen can help reduce cravings and addicitons. This is truly one of the most important superfoods on the planet!
Just as a side comment, if bees disappeared off the face of the earth, then we (humans) would only have about four years left to live.
Phytoplankton is the smallest organism (in the ocean) forming the basis of the entire food chain. Simply put…it is the most important organism on the planet and probably the healthiest food (in the ocean) for humans to eat.
With a mineral count of 90, phytoplankton is a complete protein source and a rich producer of oxygen.
Spirulina, a micro algae, is cultivated around the world and used as a dietary supplement as well as a whole food. It is available in tablet, flake and powder form.
Not widely known, spirulina is the highest protein content food in the world at 65 percent! If you live in a hot climate – spirulina can be quite cooling when consumed on a regular basis.
Many health experts agree that spirulina is one of nature’s most beneficial superfoods – supporting healthy brain, heart and immune function.
Chlorella is one of the purest, micro algae green foods known to humankind. Popular in Japan, and based on scientific research, chlorella is a great way to detoxify your body. Best of all – these types of foods help your digestive system, level your blood sugar and even freshen your breathe.
Aloe Vera, the great food of the Egyptians, is one of the only known natural vegetarian sources of Vitamin B12, and it contains many minerals vital to the growth process and healthy function of all the body’s systems. Over 200 worldwide scientific research papers have been published on the effects of Aloe Vera including anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral.
If you want to speed healing of skin burns, cuts or bruises, relieve intestinal disorders, or kill fungus and bacteria – then try some aloe vera today.
And, finally, the Hemp seed is one of the easiest-to-grow plant species in the world. Rich in protein and easy to digest – it’s great to add to your smoothies.
I encourage you to try these foods and (I hope) you’ll experience the many health benefits. Let us know by posting your comments below.
