Fucoidan the “miracle nutrient”? is a sulfated polysaccharide found mainly in various species of brown seaweed such as kombu, limu moui, bladderwrack, wakame, mozuku, and hijiki (variant forms of fucoidan have also been found in animal species, including the sea cucumber)
Beginning around 1970 researchers began studying fucoidan, and since that time fucoidan has been cited in over 700 studies published in the National Library of Medicine’s data base. www.pubmed.com The overall findings of this body of research, coupled with evidence provided by a long history of use of the fucoidan-bearing seaweed in areas such as Tonga, Hawaii and Japan indicates that fucoidan might be used as a safe, nutritional answer to a wide variety of health complaints.
Historical medicinal uses of seaweed are vast and ranged from topical burn and goiter therapy to the softening of tumors. These ancient civilizations may not have known that it was the fucoidan contained in these plants that gave them their beneficial properties, but they did know the plants offered powerful healing benefits.
The renowned longevity and good health of the Tongan people, especially statistically lower incidences of cancers and other diseases that plague the Western world, has piqued the interest of the medical and scientific communities who are keen to unlock the secret of this gift from the sea.
By absorbing trace minerals and vitamins from the nourishing waters, limu moui contains no less than 77 nutrients, including C, E and multiple B vitamins, selenium, beta-carotene, protein, iodine, calcium and iron. But the key ingredient of limu that is attracting the most attention is an essential sugar compound?a polysaccharide or glyconutrient?called fucoidan.
Medical treatments today focus on drugs and surgery, but there is a growing awareness in the health community of the tremendous potential of natural alternatives, especially researched super nutrients like the fucoidan found in limu moui. Fucoidan contains all of the eight simple sugars. These simple sugars are necessary for cell-to-cell communication and a healthy immune system. Although these nutrients are essential, there lacking in most of our diets.
There are two studies out of Canada that show fucoidan may be a potential therapy for Alzheimer?s disease. One study showed that fucoidan inhibited the advancement of several chronic degenerative diseases, including hardening and narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis), heart attack (myocardial infarction) and Alzheimer?s disease.
Fucoidan has potent anticoagulant and antithrombin activities that prevent harmful blood clots from forming in blood vessels. This is important because right now the drugs used to treat and prevent clot formation are difficult to use and can be downright dangerous if not monitored closely. This is one of the most studied areas for fucoidan with at least 50 studies on the subject as evidenced by a National Library of Medicine Pub Med search.
The use of fucoidan as a possible new cancer therapy is a key area of interest in the scientific and medical communities. There are more than 50 studies related to fucoidan and cancer. Glyconutrients are credited with combating breast, gastric and lung cancers, as well as leukemia. Most of the studies are still taking place in animal model, but the exploration is yielding some interesting and potentially therapeutic findings.
Fucoidan?s activity appears to be antiangiogenic. Antiangiogenesis is a hot topic in anti cancer therapy. To put it simply, fucoidan appears to stop the production of new blood vessels in cancerous tumors. We do not want cancerous tumor to make new blood vessels because that supplies them with the food to grow. With that in mind, consider what researchers at Fukuoka University in Japan found after they investigated whether fucoidan could counter cancerous tumors through antiangiogenesis. They found that both natural fucoidan and over-sulfated fucoidan both appear to block blood vessel formation “known as angiogenesis” which usually accompanies the growth of malignant tissue in cancerous tumors.
Cutting off a tumor?s blood supply is just one way of fighting cancer. Another way is to get the cancer cells to die through a process called apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Apoptosis occurs naturally in the live cycle of a cell, when cancer begins taking over cells and making them grow wildly out of control, or proliferate, rather than dying at their prescribed time. Fucoidan has been found in several studies to promote apoptosis in cancer cells.
Inflammation plays a role in many diseases, including cardiovascular disease, Alzheimers’s disease, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and many others. Swedish scientists from Lund University in Malmo found that fucoidan inhibits the adhesion molecules known as P and E selectins, appeared to improve symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease in mice, and points to the crucial role that this type of selectin-inhibition, may play in the treatment of the disease in humans.

Do you think it’s odd that a natural algae like chlorella is both a detoxifier and a source of nutrition? Well it’s true. But this only happens when the cell wall is “broken”. The fibrous cell wall of chlorella binds with heavy metals and toxins allowing them to pass out of your body. Plus the nutrients are then able to leave the single-celled algae and are available for you to digest.
I’ve been looking for a solution which incorporates my favorite health recommendations. What are they?
Drinking lots of pure water

Welcome to the continuation of our 7 part series How to Detoxify Your Body.
Think about eating…
Are you getting enough nutrition? Realise that I didn’t say enough food, I said enough nutrition. That a great many people are getting too much food is very evident. Unsatisfied hunger is a signal that, despite eating, your body is still undernourished. It’s really a cry for help. So, answer the call and eat whole foods rich in essential proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients like antioxidants, phytonutrients and trace minerals.
Our bodies need proper nutrition to function properly at all levels, and this includes our ability to detoxify. Eating nutrient dense foods is important to nurture your body’s 100 trillion cells.
Avoid eating processed foods which almost always contain high levels of sugar, salt, fats, coloring, preservatives and other chemicals. Fresh whole food is best.
Add nutrient dense superfoods like acai berry, maqui berry supplements to your diet. These natural superfoods have high levels of antioxidants and phytonutrients, plus fiber to cleanse your colon. Other superfoods like spirulina (considered to be a whole food) , chlorella (which has the ability to remove heavy metal contamination from your body) and stabilized rice bran are a must to boost your intake of concentrated nutrition.
The other aspect is to avoid ingesting toxins. Organically grown food has been shown to be more nutritious and is certified to be free of pesticides. So, if you can afford it, buy organic. If you’re more budget conscious, take up the example of America’s First Lady, Michelle Obama and plant your own organic vegetable garden. It’s very rewarding, you know the exact origin of the food, plus you can grow special varieties, not just the types usually grown commercially.

“(NaturalNews) Cancer will be the number one killer in the world by the year 2010, overtaking the spot now held by heart disease, according to a recent report from Associated Press. International health experts foresee a doubling in the global rate of cancer deaths by 2030. Cancer diagnoses have been steadily rising around the globe and are expected to hit 12 million this year, with deaths from cancer logging in at 7 million. By 2030 this appalling toll will hit 27 million diagnoses and 17 million deaths. What can you do to make sure you are not among the gruesome statistics? Assuming you do not smoke or drink excessively, here is a list of the top 10 steps for avoiding cancer. Anyone who has had cancer can use these steps to prevent a recurrence.
Make high quality food a priority
The quality of the food supply is very poor, being grown in depleted soil, transported long distances, stored, processed, and packaged. There is very little nutrition left in such food. Yet high quality nutrients are required by the body to keep it free of cancer. Food is a lot more than just calories. It is the bedrock of the body’s defense, so only the highest quality, most nutrient packed food should be eaten. High quality food is not about what tastes the best, but what will make you feel the best.
It is up to us to be as proactive as we can when dealing with what life has offered if we hope to retain our health. Eating locally and organically grown and produced food is the best way to get maximum nutrition. Since everyone does not have access to this kind of food, the next best thing is to make a commitment to eat whole foods that retain their integrity and have not been processed. Whole foods are things like apples, celery, potatoes and chicken legs, items that have not been altered from their natural state.
Food prepared at home is best because restaurant food is low on nutrition and high on toxic chemicals. But stay away from packaged foods and other products of food technology. They are processed, low on nutrients, and usually chocked full of chemicals. They have been created to benefit the food company that manufactures them, not the person who has to eat them. A plant based diet that places primary emphasis on vegetables and fruits eaten raw offers the highest level of cancer preventing compounds. A diet that places primary emphasis on processed carbohydrates like pancakes, bread, cake and snack foods offers the lowest level of cancer protection.
If avoiding cancer is the goal, eat the highest quality food that can be found and afforded. When times are though, think of an investment in high quality food as something that can never be taken from you, and will never lose its value. High quality food will enhance your looks and appeal to a much greater extent than a new outfit, hairdo or manicure. There is nothing that creates a radiant appearance like the glow of good health.
A diet that frequently includes known cancer fighting food is of tremendous value in the quest to remain cancer free. The Budwig protocol is the only well documented food cure for cancer. It consists of flax oil mixed with cottage cheese. Other known potent cancer fighters are berries, apples eaten with their seeds, almonds, Brazil nuts, broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, green leafy vegetables, beans and other legumes, garlic, tea, grapes, red wine, avocados, and tomatoes. Most culinary herbs have cancer fighting properties so use them whenever possible. Turmeric, ginger, rosemary, cumin, and cayenne are among the richest in cancer fighting compounds.
Stay as chemically free as possible
When the body is chemicalized, the immune system is so busy dealing with the toxic chemical onslaught that it cannot do the jobs it was meant to do. One job of the immune system is to make sure the cancerous cells produced by the body every day are identified and eliminated before they can turn into a full blown cancer. The immune system perceives toxic chemicals as just what they are, foreign invaders that do not exist in nature. It responds by trying to oust these invaders from the body. While it is busy doing that, a few cancerous cells can slip by unnoticed and a cancer can begin.
We are living in a time of chemical assault like never before. Our food is full of chemicals, the air we breathe is polluted, and the water supply contains industrial waste and pharmaceutical residues. Our personal care and household products are a toxic chemical soup. Add to that the threat from electro magnetic fields (EMFS) such as produced by power lines, computers, cell phones and even electric alarm clocks, and the total environmental threat we deal with on a daily basis is mind boggling.
Anyone who has been on the standard American diet, taking prescription drugs, and using personal care and household products from traditional retail outlets has a huge store of toxins in the body that need to be eliminated before they can contribute to the development of cancer. This can be accomplished by practicing yoga and using the breathing techniques prescribed by yoga masters, or by deep tissue massage. For the first few times, each should be followed by a general purpose antioxidant supplement like R-Lipoic Acid, and the drinking of plenty of pure water. Both will flush out toxins. Cilantro juice is another way to flush out many toxins including heavy metals. Follow the juice with chlorella or IP6 to escort them from the body. There are many other detox formulas on the market.
It is relatively easy to find personal care, cosmetic, and household products that are free of toxic chemicals. Non-toxic products can be easily ordered on line and shipped to your home. Install a water purification system, preferably one that uses reverse osmosis to get the toxins out of your drinking water and the water in which you bathe. These are also available online. Let fresh air into your home or workplace whenever possible. Use houseplants to keep the air in your environment free of pollutants. One medium sized houseplant for every 100 square foot of space should do the trick. Larger plants provide even more natural air cleaning.
Do the best you can to rid your environment of EMFs. For starters, never sit with a laptop computer on your lap. Get rid of those old style televisions and computer monitors that emit huge amounts of radiation. Throw out your microwave. If you aren’t buying packaged processed foods, you won’t need it. For a quick heating device, get an inexpensive toaster oven. Move the alarm clock from next to the bed to across the room. Do not use a cell phone unless you have to, and then use it only with a headset or in the speakerphone mode. Never carry electronic gadgetry mounted on your body.
Learn to read labels. If you do not recognize the ingredients as compounds that occur in nature, do not buy the product.
Keeping yourself and your family as free of toxins as possible requires a new way of thinking and approaching life. One of the first priorities for making a purchase should be how much the product will add to the quest for a long and healthy life. When thoughts go in this direction you will begin to see how people are being manipulated and used by many of the large corporations. Producers that make products containing toxic chemicals are showing no regard for their customer’s health or the well being of their families. They will use people however then can to enrich their bottom lines. As people become aware of this, their criteria for a purchase evolves to the point where they naturally purchase only products that will enhance their health.
Run away from prescription and over-the-counter drugs
Socrates said, “Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food”. If he were alive today he would probably be appalled by a society that is tightly in the grip of pharmaceutical companies. These companies sell patented toxic chemicals that do little or nothing to keep people well and healthy on any sustained basis. Their products mask symptoms that should be given attention. Symptoms are a wake up call that something is wrong. They need to be traced back to their cause, so the cause can be addressed and corrected, not covered up and ignored.
Whether it is a prescribed medication or an over-the-counter drug, the affect on the body is the same as with the toxic chemicals in food and other products. Drugs are lab created and do not exist in nature. If you put a drug into your body, your immune system has to deal with it as though it too is a foreign invader. Drugs raise the level of toxicity in the body and must be detoxified by a liver already stressed from trying to deal with the high level of environmental toxins.
No one gets better taking pharmaceuticals, and there is no healing. The side effects that are produced by one drug frequently lead to more prescriptions for more drugs in what becomes a vicious cycle. If people take enough drugs their bodies become chemical waste dumps where cancer can easily flourish. The reliance on drugs has diverted attention from the real issue, which is how to care for ourselves and keep ourselves healthy. Once people become truly health conscious, they resent the drug companies because they know that these companies do not have people’s best interest at heart with the products they sell. They are just like the companies that make chemicalized foods, trying to get people’s money without given anything of value in return. People who have wised up to the harmful effects of patent medicines see the constant barrage of commercials for drugs as blatant manipulation and brainwashing.
There are natural alternatives to drugs that do not just mask symptoms but actually produce healing. There is an abundance of natural compounds that can keep people in good health. These substances leave the immune systems and liver strong and able to provide protection from cancer.
Keep your gut healthy and happy
People have trouble with their stomachs and digestive tracts and write it off as an inevitable result of stress or aging. Yet many natural healers say death begins in the gut, a statement that underscores how vital the health of the gut is for overall well being. When the gut is not healthy, food cannot be properly processed and assimilated into the body, leaving people unable to have access to the wealth of nutrients that high quality food provides. Since it is these nutrients that provide protection from cancer, it becomes imperative that gut health be a priority in any anti-cancer effort.
The deterioration of the digestive system occurs over a period of years and can be signaled by sounds of a thunderstorm coming from the gut. Other symptoms include headaches, increased susceptibility to infection, gas, bloating, constipation, indigestion, and falling energy levels. Failure to address declining gut function creates an opportunity for cancer and other degenerative diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, lupus, arthritis, and psoriasis. Many chronic diseases start with gut deterioration.
The four pounds of bacteria that live in the gut are the backbone of the immune system. They are our unpaid personal bodyguards, willing to go to war against aberrant cells, bacteria, viruses, pathogens and foreign invaders to defend us. They also help out with digestion and make sure nutrients are absorbed so they can be used by the body to keep it healthy.
One of the worst things that can happen to ruin the happy relationship between people and their bacteria is antibiotics. They kill off the bodyguards along with the enemies, leaving no defense against unfriendly bacteria that would like to inhabit the intestinal tract. After a round of antibiotics, it is essential to take probiotics to reestablish friendly bacteria in the gut. Kefir, a culture that can be started in any kind of milk including coconut milk, offers powerful protection to the gut and as a result, to the entire body. Kefir culture is available online.
Even if no antibiotics have been taken, the herd of friendly bacteria in the gut can become depleted to the point where it can no longer do what it is meant to do. Pesticides in food are lethal to intestinal bacteria. Even if the skins of fruits and vegetables are well washed, pesticides remain because they work systemically and will be contained in the body of the produce. Chlorine is meant to kill bacteria in water and will kill off the bacteria in the gut as well. Eventually the gut becomes so depleted that it will be as though antibiotics have been taken even if they have not. When this happens, unfriendly microorganisms are free to set up shop in the digestive tract.
Probiotics are friendly bacteria similar to the bacteria found in the guts of breastfed infants who have been provided this natural protection against many diseases by their mothers. Almost every supplement company sells probiotics in capsule form. Although they don’t work as well as kefir at restoring depleted levels of bacteria, they are good for maintenance of a healthy digestive system. Yogurt will also help preserve the health of the digestive tract once it has been established, but it won’t do much to help repopulate a digestive tract after antibiotic use or years of general neglect.
Restore declining hormones to optimal levels
For women and for men, achieving and maintaining hormonal balance is probably the single greatest intervention that can be taken to preserve health. Hormonal decline can start as early as the late 20’s for women and the mid 30’s for men. It is an opening door that leads to aging and degenerative diseases like cancer. While women and men have their hormones in abundance and in balance, they are vital, vibrant and reproductive. Nature has a use for them and wants to keep them around. When hormones decline and are not replaced, a powerful message is sent to nature saying these people are no longer necessary in the great scheme of life.
Hormones control mental and physical well being. Energy level, metabolism, brain functioning, skeletal integrity, mood, motivation, and zest for life are orchestrated by the hormones. All the hormones work together to keep us healthy and functioning at our best. If one hormone is not up to par, repercussions will manifest through all the body systems. If people do not feel well and at their best a large part of the time, chances are pretty good that at least one hormone is not at the level it should be. If they have trouble sleeping, feel depressed, gain weight without increasing food intake, have low energy during some part of the day, or have lost interest in sex or cannot perform, their hormone levels are probably declining and out of balance. For anyone who already has cancer or any other degenerative disease, hormonal imbalance is almost a sure thing. Until hormones are replenished and balanced, real sustainable recovery will be impossible.
The only way to achieve hormone balance is with bioidentical hormone replacement that restores hormone levels to where they were at the prime of life. Teenagers and people in their early 20’s usually feel good and energetic most of the time. They do not have cancer. This is because they have a full complement of balanced hormones.
Achieving this level of hormonal balance and the vibrant health, joy of living and freedom from worrying about cancer and other diseases that goes with it, requires the help of a physician trained in anti-aging medicine or hormone balancing. Many traditional doctors have never heard of bioidentical hormones or if they have, they will advise their patients not to use them because they are not drugs. Since many bioidentical hormones are made at compounding pharmacies, this is a good place to start the search for hormone balance. Ask who they recommend.”
Here is a summary of who is talking about Acai berries and, more importantly, what they are saying:–
Brad Pitt– used acai berry to help weight loss when he needed to get fit and reduce body fat to star in the recent movie “Burn After Reading”. Sure he exercised as well, acai berry products gave him the energy to train, and helped him slim down.
Angelina Jolie– used acai berry to slim down after the birth of her babies.
Dr Nicholas Perricone – introduced acai berries to Oprah and the world. He has called acai berries the number one superfood.
Sumner Redstone – the 85 year old media mogul behind Viacom and CBS called acai berries like “a miracle drug” (* just for the record it’s totally natural, not a drug). He says, he’s never felt better. “I know I look a lot younger than I am,” he says. “I feel like I’m 40 years old.”
Rachel Ray– Featured acai on her show.
Lailina Wisoff, a Kaiser Permanente dietician says – “Whether they drink it as a juice, or whether they use it in a smoothie or take it as a supplement, it will boost the antioxidants in their diet. It has been recommended by the USDA to increase our antioxidants. High antioxidants in the blood have an inverse reaction to disease”
Keri Glassman, dietician who reported on “The Early Show” – “Acai berries are among the most nutritious foods of the Amazon, rich in B vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Acai berries also contain oleic acid (omega-9), a beneficial fatty acid (often mistakenly referred to as essential).”
Wall Street Journal “Acai Replaces Wheatgrass At Juice Bars” – “At juice bars and health stores around the country, the hip new taste is açaí, (pronounced ah-sigh-EE) a grape-size, deep-purple berry that grows atop palm trees in the Brazilian jungle.”
ABC News– Chicago “Superfoods For The New Year” – January 7, 2007 – “Let’s move from the beautiful rolling hills of Tuscany to the vast, dark regions of the Brazilian rain forest where we discover the new superstar of super foods, acai (ah-sigh-ee). You’ll be hearing a lot more about this rain forest fruit going forward. Acai is the off the chart for almost everything that kale is, in addition to naturally occurring Omega-3, 6 and 9 oils.”
“It’s not only good for you, but many world class athletes drink it while training because it’s so loaded with nutrition and protein it can be a complete meal. But you don’t have to be an athlete, maybe just a busy mom or kid.”
NBC Today Show “Five Life Changing Foods” November 26, 2007 – “Studies show that the acai berry is one of the most nutritious foods in the world. The high-energy berry of as Amazonian palm tree, acai is harvested in the rainforests of Brazil and tastes like a vibrant blend of berries and chocolate.” “Acai pulp contains 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes and 10 to 30 times the anthocyanins of red wine; a synergy of monounsaturated (healthy) fats, dietary fiber and phytosterols to help promote cardiovascular and digestive health; and an almost perfect essential amino acid complex in conjunction with valuable trace minerals, vital to proper muscle contraction and regeneration.”

The film ‘Food Matters’ delivers a clear, concise, hard-hitting fast paced look at our current state of health, health care and the quality and nutritional content of our food.
The unbiased film, independently funded from start to finish, was created by two nutritionists, James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch, who became Producer Directors of the film created in the style of ‘The Secret’.
Discouraged by the terrible side effects that pharmaceutical drugs were having on their families’ health, they set out on a path to discover what other alternatives might exist. After studying Nutrition through the Global College of Natural Medicine in California, they realized that the health challenges within their own families were in fact a very real representation of what is happening the world over.
James and Laurentine, in their personal quest, saw a need and found their mission was to uncover the truth about our food and invasive medical-based systems and focus attention on natural therapies and nutrition-based healing.
With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with our malnourished bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. Providing a host of toxic medical therapies to an already toxic population who eat nutrient sparse foods is not the answer. Food Matters sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide ‘Sickness Industry’ and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for curing disease naturally.
Based on the premise of Hippocrates, the founding father of modern medicine, “Let Thy Food Be Thy Medicine, And Thy Medicine Be Thy Food.”, the film challenges our belief systems and helps us analyze the information given to us by the modern medical establishments. As the teachers reveal, the solution to our problems is not necessarily costly medical intervention and disclose many alternative therapies that can be more effective, more economical, less harmful and less invasive.
The culmination is a film of the teachings of leading authorities in Nutrition and Natural Healing from around the world. Featuring:
· Andrew Saul PhD, Therapeutic Nutrition Specialist and Author, Rochester, New York
· Charlotte Gerson, Founder of the Gerson Institute, San Diego, California
· Dr Dan Rogers M.D., N.D., Curing the “incurable”, San Diego, California
· David Wolfe, World Authority on Raw Foods & Superfoods, San Diego, California
· Prof. Ian Brighthope, M.D., M.B.B.S., D.Ag.Sci, FACNEM, FACHM, Melbourne, Australia
· Jerome Burne, Medical Health Journalist, London, UK
· Phillip Day, Investigative Journalist, Kent, UK
· Victor Zeines, Holistic Dentist & Nutritionist D.D.S., M.S, FAGD, Manhattan, New York
The truth that improper nutrition is harmful is revealed by the world leaders in nutrition and natural healing, more importantly they also disclose that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses, including potentially fatal cancers.
‘Food Matters’ seeks to uncover the business of disease, and at the same time, explore the safe, cheap and effective use of nutrition and supplementation for preventing and often reversing the underlying causative aspects of the illness. Find out what works, what doesn’t and what’s killing people. Becoming informed about the choices available could save lives.
Moreover, ‘Food Matters’ allows easy access to solid information to help people make better choices for their health by using an on-line “pay-per-view” distribution system or via DVD mailed anywhere in the world. Get your own copy by visiting Food Matters

Nutritionists turned filmmakers, James Colquhoun & Laurentine ten Bosch, went on a mission to uncover the truth. What we are being told to eat by governments, food companies and mass media marketing is actually doing us considerable harm.
They tracked down several of the world’s leaders in nutrition and natural healing from around the globe in order to provide the most up to date information on nutrition and natural healing.
The focus of the film is in helping us rethink the belief systems fed to us by our modern medical and health care establishments. The teachers point out that not every problem requires costly, major medical attention and reveal many alternative therapies that can be more effective, more economical, less harmful and less invasive.

“Vinegar” – the master of pH balancing – Sir Hans Adolf Krebs (Dr. Krebs), awarded the Nobel Prize in 1953 and 1964, proved that the modern man’s diet contains too much animal fat, protein, and high calorie foods that can lead to an acidic body.
To combat the problem, “pH balancing” has become one of the most important daily tasks for healthy living. The basic principle of good health is to keep the pH level of the body slightly alkaline (between pH 7.35 and pH 7.45), so the body is best able to fend off disease.
Vinegar is one of the food products that can rapidly improve the blood acid level. In just 2 hours, it can bring your body back to a healthy alkaline level, possibly saving your life!
Vinegar is your good friend in your pursuit of good healthPrevention is better than cure, and a stitch in time saves nine – the same applies to our health. If we wait till disease strikes before we pay attention to health, it’s too late. Focus on prevention can cut down on pain, suffering and medical bills.
According to a study by the World Health Organization (WHO), modern medical science can only identify 10% of the symptoms of diseases; the other 90% of disease symptoms are hidden and cannot be identified with our current technology and methods. There are so many different health care products on the market, why choose vinegar? The reason is that vinegar has a broad range of benefits, ranging from slimming, improving metabolism, reducing urea acid, alleviating hangovers, lightening the skin, removing blemishes, balancing body pH level, etc.
Vinegar can quickly return the body to a healthy alkaline level, and help maintain this level, so it promotes cell revitalization and reduces the chances of contracting diseases.
Chronic diseases strike vegetarians too, albeit at a lower rate than non-vegetarians. Many monks, priests and sages consume large quantities of vinegar to maintain good health as vinegar can aid in the breaking down of grain and vegetable proteins. Especially in those suffering from anaemia due to nutrition imbalance, vinegar can break down the consumed nutrients, so that they can be easily and quickly absorbed by the body.
The faster the nutrient uptake, the faster the body’s health improves. Vinegar is known as the antidote to an acidic body, and highly concentrated vinegar can effectively protect a person from chronic diseases.
In Part 3 I listed the spectrum of nutrient groups we need to achieve optimal health. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s kinda daunting!
Imagine the careful selection of food ingredients to get a balanced diet. The problem is that we would need to consume a whole lot of very nutritious food. Put simply, it’s difficult!
OK go for supplementation! That’s easier to achieve, but how expensive is it to take all the nutritional supplements you need? I know you probably have your favorite supplement. I do too. I consume spirulina, chlorella and stabilized rice bran on a very regular basis.
The secret to easily achieving a regular intake of all the nutrients you need is to combine everything we need in one product.
Simple really. So what is this revolutionary supplement?
