Raw Cacao Nibs or Beans
Raw Cacao Nibs or beans are high in sulfur and magnesium, two minerals that we desperately need in our diet as most people are highly sufficient because of our diets, excess “junk” calcium, and poor soil quality. I love the beans although they may take a couple of times to get used to the taste.
The nibs you can eat right out of the pouch and they are delicious! It naturally increases our brain’s neurotransmitters like PEA (Phenylethylamine) which is the same brain chemical that is naturally secreted when we fall in love. You can even get this neurotransmitter with oxytocin as a cologne or perfume to help create that trust bond in people. No wonder love and chocolate go together!
Another brain chemical in raw cacao is anandamide, which is called the “bliss” chemical and alleviates depression and provides a euphoric feeling often associated with heroin. It also decreases appetite (natural weight loss here) because it includes Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAO inhibitors) which also help rejuvenate a person and give them a youthful healthy glow.
It’s natural sulfur content gives stronger hair and nails as well as beautiful skin. It is the “fountain of youth” supplement. The magnesium will help you build stronger bones (more important than calcium) and alleviate SAD (seasonal affective disorder). Go out and start using this natural superfood today!
Methyl Sulfonyl Methane is a natural nutrient that is in almost every cell of our bodies. It is a sulfur based nutrient that can help relieve arthritis by relieving inflammation and actually rebuilding the joint socket and strengthening the bones as well. It has been used to treat allergies, asthma and even snoring. It is the natural beauty supplement that feeds and strengthens your hair nails and skin. It is the “fountain of youth” supplement.
It can help you build muscle and detox your body as well. It helps you release excess lactic acid (what causes the soreness) in your muscles after a strenuous workout. It increases the effectiveness of vitamin C and should be taken with it to supercharge both of their effects.
I prefer Camu Camu as a natural source of Vitamin C. MSM helps oxygenate your body and even gives you more energy. You can find it naturally in eggs, nuts and seeds. You can’t really have too much of it as it is easily flushed from your system.
Medicinal mushrooms, like Chaga, Reishi, Shiitake, Turkey Tail, and Maitake can help your body become stronger and resistant to allergy, infection and disease. They boost your immune system naturally. In fact they are so potent that they can even help your body get rid of cancer!
They help lower bad cholesterol, balance blood sugar, ward off infection, reduce inflammation and detox your body. The above mushroom blend comes from none other than Paul Stamets himself (The world’s expert on how mushrooms can not only save your health but the planet, they eat toxins, even from severe oil spills and transform barren lands into healthy habitats.) Here is a presentation on how Mushrooms Can Save Our World, and even your life:
They can help you respiratory system and actually rid your body of fungal infections. Funny how fungus displaces fungus, huh? It can even promote a spiritual connection as they are earth’s largest living thing. Some underground mushroom patches can go on for miles!
They even help detox the planet, and get rid of toxins in water, like oil spills! You can use them on salads, soups or even make teas out of them. Include them in your diet today!
Camu Camu is the richest source of Vitamin C on the planet! It also includes high levels of the Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) need for body tissues and muscle repair. It enhances the immune system and increases your energy level too. It is a natural mood elevator than can stop depression dead in it’s tracks.
It helps with colds, flu, hepatitis, asthma, infertility, Parkinson’s disease, glaucoma, gingivitis, atherosclerosis, arthritis pain and inflammation and is a natural pain killer. It is best to get this supplement in a natural powder form and take 1-2 grams per day, with MSM if you have it.
Maca is a true adaptogen, meaning it can help one adapt and overcome the effects of stress on the body. It is great to use if you workout or are under any form of stress. It increases fertility and sexual function in men and women. It helps you get stronger, faster and recover quicker too. It helps you restore proper hormonal balance in your body too.
* The Maca you use *Must* be “Gelatinized” so your body can absorb it! Insist on it, or you miss out on most of it’s incredible benefits. Organic and raw are also very desirable qualities, as they make it many times more potent!
It helps your skin become more youthful and elastic, as well as have that natural healthy glow. It speeds healing to wounds, enhances the circulatory system and boosts the immune system too. It increases energy and endurance in people, particularly during exercise. It will give your stamina a boost too. Get a 1,000 Watt Juicer or NutriBullet Rx and getting all these powerful super foods into your body could never be easier or tastier.
