GET THE SPECS !
FROM THE LAND: Organic wheat and barley grasses
It's a duo of pure cereal grasses, each with its own nutritional talents. They provide a multi-nutritional boost. And they're more than qualified. Organically grown in rich volcanic soil – and because they're farm-grown, not tray-grown, they can lay down deep roots and absorb more nutrients.
FROM THE OCEAN: 4 organic or wild-harvested sea vegetables
Sea vegetables provide 10 to 20 times more vitamins and minerals than land vegetables. That's good news. Particularly when it comes to iodine, a vital mineral for the healthy functioning of glands like the pituitary, adrenals and thyroid.
You say sea vegetables. I say seaweeds. Let's call the whole thing off. But only after we've noted that no family of foods offers more protection against radiation and environmental toxins than these sea greens.
And we've handpicked four of the best for the Veggie Superfoods blend ...
- Organic kelp(Laminaria digitata)
- Organic rockweed (Ascophyllum nodosum)
- Organic dulse (Palmaria palmate)
- Organic bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosis)
FROM FRESH WATER: Chlorella pyrenoidosa and Spirulina platensis algae
Chlorella is a nutritious little microalga. It's made of 60% easily assimilated protein and other lovely stuff like nucleic acids, essential fatty acids and the antioxidant beta-carotene. Plus it's nature's richest source of the antioxidant chlorophyll.
Chlorella helps clear out bad stuff. It's already considered a heavy hitter in heavy-metal detox. Plus this antioxidant-rich alga has immune-strengthening, infection-fighting properties that help clear viruses, bacteria and other micro-baddies.
FACT: Chlorella contains two to three times more chlorophyll than any other food. CHLOR-ella!
Spirulina, is a microscopic, filamentous blue - green microalga that has a long history of use as food, extending as far back as 400 years ago. The food interest in Spirulina is focused mainly on its rich content of (1) protein: 60-70% crude protein, (2) vitamins: especially vitamin B12 and beta-carotene, and (3) essential minerals. Spirulina also contains all eight essential and nine non-essential amino acids and numerous phytochemicals which have a host of potential health benefits.
2. CRUCIAL CRUCIFEROUS!
What do Broccoli, Daikon radish and the vegetable Kale have in common? They all belong to the famous cell- protecting, Cruciferous (Brassicaceae) family. Various components in these superfood vegetables have been shown clinically not only to decrease cancer risks and oxidative stress, but also to be linked to lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease. Strapping Vitality Leaders!
Packed with free radical scavenging anti-oxidants, this anti-cancer, cruciferous vegetable sprout is naturally high in phytonutrients, vitamin C, folate, potassium, iron, manganese, calcium, selenium, and sodium.
From Asian decent and deceptively innocent, don't be fooled by this big white carrot look-alike (Daikon Radish). For not only is daikon a natural digestive rich in vitamins B3, B6, C and E, but it is also a 'lovely' natural remedy for a hangover. Lowering the blood pressure numbers has also been linked to this wonderfully healing vegetable.
This curly dark green vegetable originates from the Dutch "farmer's cabbage" and until the middle ages was one of the most common green vegetables in all of Europe! Kale is very high in beta-carotene and vitamin K and C and rich in calcium and two other very important carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin which are vital for eye health.
3. SUPERIOR SPROUTS!
Nutrient and enzyme dense sprouts. Organic Adzuki, Amaranth, Fenugreek, Quinoa and Sunflower unleash some of the most dynamite packages of health.
FACT:Sprouts are estimated to have 100 times more enzymes than uncooked fruits and vegetables. Most of these enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts for all your body's functions; extracting more vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids from the foods you eat.
And? Sprouting can boost the nutritional qualities of seeds, beans and grains by 300 to 1200 percent!
Is there more? Sprouts have substantially more fibre than their fully grown counterparts.
When Amaranth seeds sprout, they pop like popcorn. Popping out an abundance of nutrients like lysine, an essential amino acid, limited in other grains or plant sources. Its content of phytosterols may be of benefit for those with hypertension, cardiovascular disease and to help lower cholesterol.
Vitamin A, vitamin C and folate, thiamine, niacin and riboflavin compliment a source of some dietary minerals including magnesium, iron, selenium, copper, and manganese.
This small annual leguminous herb is native to sub-Himalayan plains of India and is one of the oldest medicinal recorded herbs. It's a rich source of vitamins and minerals.
The myriad of medicinal benefits attributed to fenugreek are insurmountable. Blood cleanser, diaphoretic, lymphatic cleanser, laxative, cough and bronchitis are to name just a few. Traditionally, fenugreeks are being used to assist with digestive problems and abdominal cramps.
Remember this statement?? 'sprouting fresh shoots can boost the nutritional qualities by 300 to 1200 percent'.Well consider that these tiny powerhouses have 30 times the nutrient value and life force of any other sprout! We are onto a whole different level of superfood now.
Adzuki sprouts, voted the "reddest" sprout, provide a valuable source of minerals: iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. This legume is a source of the isoflavones genistein and daidizen, both showing great promise in the fight against cancer. Not only does sprouting Adzuki beans provide an even higher than normal isoflavone content, but these isoflavones are thought to be even more available for digestion.
Kinwa or Qin-wah.... However you say it, it's packed with essential amino acids like lysine and good helpings of calcium, phosphorous and iron. The Andean civilisations knew a good thing – quinoa is a "super-grain", due to protein content that's higher than rice, potatoes, barley and millet. It's a great source of fibre, phosphorus, magnesium and iron.
From ancient times mushrooms have been used or their effects on the human body. The Veggie Superfoods Powder is filled with a 13-pack of mushroom species, handpicked for their immune-enhancing properties.
