VITAMINS AND MINERALS
Spirulina – 60% all-vegetable protein, contains all essential amino acids, antioxidant beta-carotene, iron, vitamin B-12, and the rare gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). phytonutrients carotene, chlorophyll, and phycocyanin. It is also an excellent source of polysaccharides, a complex sugar molecule, and sulfoglycolipids, which is a lipid containing carbohydrates, helps balance blood sugars. Spirulina may be able to improve immune function, liver function, lower serum cholesterol levels, and increase the “good bacteria” in the gastrointestinal tract, used in the treatment of anemia, diabetes, hypoglycemia, obesity, overeating, and malnourishment.
Kelp – improves thyroid functioning and tonicity of the general system to improve energy, nutrient rich source of vitamins, especially the B complex vitamins. It is also rich in Vitamin B-12, help protect reproductive organs in both men and women. Studies have shown that Japan’s high intake of kelp in their diet is largely responsible for the lower incidence of breast cancer, prostate disorders, obesity, heart disease, infectious disease, arthritis, and digestive problems.
Chlorella (split cell) – Sometimes referred to as the “green blood tonic” and cleanser. Chlorella is the perfect compliment to Spirulina with moore than twice the nucleic acid and chlorophyll. beneficial in cases of anemia, and studies have shown its ability to stimulate the regeneration of tissue, accelerate the healing of wounds, while it inhibits the growth of some tumors. Chlorella help prevent platelet aggregation (sticky cells). Chlorella is a “whole food” that is rich in nutrients such as protein, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, and most importantly nucleic acids. Chlorella contains more than 20 vitamins and minerals including vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, and K, as well as iron, calcium, beta-carotene, biotin, choline, essential fatty acids, folic acid, inositol, niacin, and pantothenic acid. Chlorella has almost 70% protein, and 19 of the 22 amino acids. It is the highest source of chlorophyll, which is a liver detoxifier, bowel cleanser, and a catalyst for the absorption of other elements, including iron.
Dulse – a purple or red seaweed, is an excellent source of calcium. It is also an extremely rich source of natural, highly assimilable potassium. Dulse is the richest source of assimilable minerals and trace-minerals found to date. It contains all 43 of the minerals and trace-minerals found in the world’s oceans as well as the earth’s crust. Dulse is rich in manganese, which activates enzyme systems. It is also highly concentrated in iodine, which may be missing from non-coastal diets.
Barley Grass – when no other food is available you can thrive on barley grass alone. Barley Grass contains all of the eight essential amino acids, which our body cannot produce on its own, as well as the proteins necessary for the human diet. Rich in chlorophyll needed for cellular health, easily absorbed through the digestive tract, giving our bodies instant access to vital nutrients including beta-carotene, calcium, copper, folic acid, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, and Vitamins B1, B2, B6, and C. has been shown to have strong anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. Barley Grass has also been used to treat diarrhea, bronchitis, stomach problems, and throat ailments. It is an anti-oxidant and detoxifier. The ability of Barley Grass to aid in cellular rebuilding has led to its use for everything from dermatitis to an anti-aging supplement.
Wheat Grass – has been a basic food of the human race for thousands of years, a cereal grain which means that it is a grass whose seeds are used for food, one of the best nutritional substances known to man. You need to eat the original grass to receive all the nutritional benefits. Wheat Grass is one of nature’s most perfect foods. It is a rich source of Vitamin A, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B8, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, protein, chlorophyll, and numerous other vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, including Vitamin C, Vitamin K, niacin, biotin, folic acid, calcium, iron, and twenty amino acids. Wheat Grass is one of those rare foods, which can supply the human body with practically every nutrient necessary for life. Wheat Grass is also rich in anti-oxidants, and may have anti-cancer properties. Wheat Grass can boost your energy levels, and improve the function of your immune system.
Alfalfa Leaf – When alfalfa was abundant in our food chain it was considered a lesser herb. Now due to the low intake from food sources it is now considered a master nutritive. This is due to the fact that it is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D, E, K and P, also rich in trace minerals calcium, copper, folate, iron, magnesium, manganese, zinc, phosphorus, potassium, as well as alpha-carotene and beta-carotene, lutein, saponin, genistein and chlorophyll, contains essential amino acids, higher in protein than most other plants. Empirical evidence suggests that alfalfa may lower bad (LDL) cholesterol by sticking to it and preventing the bad (LDL) cholesterol from staying in the blood or being deposited in blood cells. It does not appear to block good (HDL) cholesterol from functioning properly. Alfalfa helps balance blood sugar and promotes pituitary gland function, aids digestion, contains mucilage, improves digestive system, alkalizes and detoxifies the body, useful for allergies, bone and joint health, diuretic, antiviral, and antibacterial
