Superfoods for Super Youth
We call this elite group of berries, seeds, nuts and powders superfoods because they are in an extraordinary class of their own. Perhaps you’ve heard the term, and not really known what it was. If so, you’ll benefit from the leading research David Wolfe, expert in the field, and author of Superfoods, has done on the unifying factors common to all superfoods. A food is classified as “Superfood” when it meets the following impressive standards:
- Foods that have a dozen or more unique properties, not merely one or two;
- Meets or exceeds all of our protein, mineral, antioxidant, good fats and oils, essential amino acids, vitamins, enzymes, coenzymes, polysaccharides, immune system, essential fatty-acid, and glyconutrient requirements;
- Corrects dietary imbalances;
- Ease into natural detoxification of the body;
- Provide deep levels of nutrition beyond common organic whole foods;
- Are a 100% clean, hormone-free, pesticide-free, natural food source;
- Provide an abundance of natural synergistic elements for nutrition (an area poorly understood by nutritional science); allowing you to get more from your food
- AFA blue-green algae- one of the most digestable and usable sources of protein for your body, high in Omega 3’s, beneficial for weight loss due to high levels of Phenylethylamine (PEA) which lowers appetite and releases feel good endorphins.
- Aloe Vera- Aloe’s polysaccharides have a lubricating effect on the joints, brain and nervous systems. The polysaccharides also have an immune modulating effect, that allows the immune system to fight back against chronic viral, nanobacteria and fungal infections. Aloe cuts and dissolves mucuos in the intestine, which helps increase nutrient absorption. In studies done on rodents, aloe has demonstrated the ability to markedly inhibit edema and inflammation. Mast cells, which are active in autoimmune and alergir responses decreased by 48% For more info see Superfoods by David Wolfe.
- Bee Products (honey, pollen, propolis, and royal jelly)- high vibrational, spiritual food, alkalizing, high mineral, vitamin and nutrient content, especially B-9 and all essential amino acids. Honey, and propolis act as immune supporting antibacterial and prebiotic that wards off diseases and supports wound healing.

Used for stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV and cancer, dental care, and bone strength. These benefits of coconut oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and its properties such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, soothing, etc
- Goji Berries-with four times the antioxidants in blueberries, all the amino acids, alkaline forming, high in vitamin A and C, these berries not only boost immune function and blood quality, they help the body produce Human Growth Hormone, which diminishes as we age.
