Want to Look Younger Than Your Years???

SLIDE-3

Without enzymes, life is not possible. Like cells, enzymes lose their internal life-span capacity as well as their ability to neutralize toxins; especially important, as we are exposed to more and more toxic substances that we ingest, inhale, and apply to our body.

Anti-aging must occur from the inside-out. Skin and body rejuvenation is largely dependent on enzyme activity; wheatgrass juice provides just that spark to ignite the cellular renewal processes.

The body can instantly convert chlorophyll from wheatgrass into fresh blood because its molecular structure is almost identical to that of human blood; supporting the anti-aging theory by maintaining healthy, clean blood.

According to research performed by Dr. Peter Rothschild, M.D. at Smith-Kline Bio-Science, young grasses are excellent sources of superoxide dismutase (SOD), a powerful antioxidant and anti-aging enzyme.

This human study used 70 year old seniors who are naturally slower to respond than a younger population. Nevertheless, the serum levels of the seniors increased an average of 230% overall in the group and as much as 730% in one individual. Seven of the 10 participants more than doubled their blood levels of SOD.

Wheatgrass with roots has over 100 types of enzymes, one of those enzymes is SOD. The high levels of assimilation are due to the fact that the supplement is a whole foods concentrate with all of its synergistic co-nutritional factors.

How to Strengthen your Immune System?

Experts have determined that colds and flu are usually a result of immune system breakdown.  Our immune system is a complex, interacting web of chemical and cellular components that serve to protect us against potential invaders such as bacteria, viruses and cancer cells.

Specific factors that affect the immune system are nutritional deficiencies, infections, trauma, toxins, radiation exposure, emotional state and stress.

Lack of sleep may actually make us more prone to catching colds and the flu. If you don’t sleep well experimental studies have shown you tend get sick more often. In simple terms, sleep deprivation suppresses immune system function, according to Diwakar Balachandran, MD, director of the Sleep Center at the University of Texas.

Constant stress makes us vulnerable to illness and disease.  An effective way to manage stress is to exercise which not only strengthens your muscles, but it also creates a healthy immune system.  Along with physical exercise, deep breathing exercises are very helpful.

Research shows clearly that the type of bacteria residing in our GI tract affects us.  The digestive system is important for overall health and well-being.

A healthy diet should be part of any wellness program.  Any nutrient deficiency suppresses immune function, as does an excess consumption of sugar and refined foods. Although a healthy diet is the foundation, supplements can be of benefit as well.

Wheatgrass is a natural supplement that will build up your immune system by supplementing your diet and provide health to all areas of your system.  Wheatgrass  with the roots contains 13 vitamins, 10 minerals, 17 amino-acids, chlorophyll, fiber, and over 100 types of enzymes.  Wheatgrass is a complete food!

 

Should We Eat Like a Caveman?

The concept is to eat as our ancient ancestors did: plants (greens, roots, fruits, and nuts), wild-caught meats, fish and eggs. No grains. No dairy.   In other words — eat like a caveman.

It is normally recommended you stop eating meat to combat acidosis. But the scientists who analyzed this issue state clearly that our ancestors had alkaline bodies, not because they didn’t eat meat, but because they didn’t eat cereal grains and modern, energy-dense, nutrient-poor foods (refined sugars and vegetable oils).

The authors write “the replacement of base-rich plant-food groups (roots, leafy green vegetables, and fruits) with cereal grains and refined foods such as sugars and separated fats.” switched human diets from alkaline to acid.

To more closely follow the caveman diet and return our bodies to an alkaline state we need to:

  1. Remove refined, processed foods from our diet, especially sugars and flours.

 

  1. Include animal proteins. Choose meats from animals that eat their natural foods. That means no grain-fed fish, cows, chickens or hogs. Cows should graze on grass (grass fed beef). Fish should eat algae or plankton and smaller fish (no farm fish). Chickens should eat insects, grass, insect larvae and worms ( range free). Hogs should feed on acorns and roots.

 

  1. Add more plant foods back into our diet, especially greens and vegetables. The easiest way to add greens is to include wheatgrass powder from bestorganicwheatgrass.com.  One packet of this powder (that includes the roots) is the equivalent of 17 lbs of choicest vegetables.
