I ♥ Chlorella!

Chlorella-Plus-un-gran-aliado-para-terminar-el-díaI really do, I LOVE chlorella!  I have faithfully included it as a part of my daily regime for many months now, and I have noticed a big difference in how I feel.  But more than that, I know that my body is being cleansed of all the junk I do not want inside of me.  In particular, as I work on losing my extra weight and my body releases toxins that have been residing in my fat cells (YUCK!).  Onward and upward to better health and living In the Pink 😉

Detoxification is a word we hear very often these days, that is a good thing, because there are many toxic side effects of living in this modern day world!

To combat the harmful and unwanted chemicals your body picks up through the food you eat, the air you breathe, and the water you drink, it is wise to develop a proactive plan. One of the most powerful parts of this plan is detoxification of the toxins you may have already built up inside your body.

As your body moves into a healthier state then it can more effectively remove the toxins you are exposed to every day.  So how does one move into that state?  The addition of Chlorella in your diet is an excellent way to move towards that goal.

Bee Pollen – One of Nature’s Most Perfect Foods

bee-pollen

 

Who would have thought that pollen collected by busy little bees would be one of the most nutritious foods we can eat?

BeePollen_665

Many years ago the Greeks and Romans referred to natural bee pollen as “the life giving dust” or the secret “ambrosia” eaten to acquire eternal youth.

In our modern times, scientists, gerontologists and nutritionists have rediscovered the benefits of bee pollen confirming the promotion of healing on many levels. Some nutritionists state that you could live adequately on bee pollen alone (not that I would want to, but an interesting thought!). Science shows that bee pollen has natural rejuvenating powers. It can aid in beauty (especially the skin), boosts of energy, extending your life span, the fight against allergies and the relief of digestive disorders. Bee pollen bursts with easily assimilated protein and lecithin, which nourish the brain and nervous system. Pollen is also thought to protect against radiation and to have anti-cancer qualities.

Side note: A cancer specialist, Ernesto Contreras, M.D, even comments, “To my knowledge, there is no better and more complete natural nutrient than honey bee pollen.”

On a personal note: I am eating a tablespoon of bee pollen as I write this!

So lets break down some of the benefits and look at them individually. Continue reading

To Supplement or not to Supplement, that is the question!

 

Vitalizer

If we lived in a perfect world, the answer would most likely be NO.  In a perfect world, our food sources and way of life would be more than adequate to take care of all our dietary and emotional needs.  Unfortunately, our modern day environment and lifestyle is so profoundly different than it was 100 years ago.  So much so, my belief supports the fact that supplementing our diet is absolutely imperative.

 

Over the years the quality of our food has diminished and become less nutritionally dense:

  • A decline in soil diversity and quality (and consequent decline in nutrient density of foods).  In 1948 a cup of spinach yielded 158mg of iron, today it yields 2mg of iron.  The soil cannot produce what it does not have!

Healthy Heart

Your heart pumps approximately 2,000 gallons of blood throughout the body every day. As the hardest-working muscle in your body and the circulatory system’s main control center, your heart requires a significant amount of energy to function properly. That energy is made available with the help of a nutrient called coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), which also plays a role in supporting blood vessel health. CoQ10 is produced naturally by the body and is present in all cells. Dietary intake helps maintain CoQ10 levels; however, the amount of CoQ10 consumed from foods is typically less than 10 mg a day. More important, factors such as poor diet, aging, and daily exposure to free radicals may increase the need for this crucial nutrient.

Coenzyme Q10:

CoQ10 is a fat-soluble nutrient produced in the body and present in all cells. Higher concentrations of this nutrient are found in Continue reading
