The Story Of Li Ching Yuen

Li Ching Yuen - Anti Aging with Goji BerriesHere’s a little story about Goji Berries. Li, Ching-Yuen or Li,Ching-Yun was a Chinese herbalist, martial artist and tactical advisor. It is claimed that he was born in 1734 while disputed records say he was born on 1677. His lifespan of 199 or 256 years, in any case, far exceed the longest confirmed lifespan of 122 years and 164 days.

The story goes that Li Ching-Yuen was supposedly born in 1677 in Qi Jiang Xian, Szechun province. He spent most of his life in the mountain ranges gathering herbs and knowledge of longevity methods. In 1749 when he was already 71 years old, he moved to Kai Xian to join the Chinese Army to be a teacher of the martial arts and a tactical advisor.

Professor Wu Chung Chieh, from the Chengdu University, found records from the Chinese Imperial Government congratulating Li Ching Yuen on his 150th birthday in 1827.

In 1927, 100 years later, he was invited by General Yang Sen in Wang Xien, Szechuan. There the general was fascinated at his youthfulness, strength and prowess despite his advancing age. His famous portrait was taken there.

In May 1933, he died of natural causes. General Yang Sen after Li’s death investigated the truth about his age. and later wrote the report and got published. Witnesses interviewed from his home province remembered already seeing Li when they were children and others reported that Li had already been friends with their grandfathers.

Sad to say this story will continue to be a longevity myth and not treated as a fact. His actual lifespan will never be firmly established due to the fact that the census documentation of rural 17th century China is so sparse with comparisons to modern records. Though his story has well been documented in a featured documentary by National Geographic magazine in 1930. Oh well, but at least one secret to Li’s longevity is already produced right now. Yes, the raw organic superfood Tibetan Goji Berries.

It is believed that Li consumed Goji Berries everyday. Some even say that this was his main source of food. Tibetan Goji Berries as a raw organic superfood is being honored to these day because of its longevity properties in a two week festival.

Wolfberries Goji Berries in ChinaDespite its longevity benefits, Tibetan Goji Berries also strengthens the immune system, increase energy and reduce fatigue, reduce the effect of free radical in the body, engender a sense of well-being and optimism and help curb appetite and over-eating.

As a raw organic superfood its nutritional profile is packed. Its loaded with nutrients and powerful antioxidants. 18 amino acids, more beta carotene than carrots, more iron than spinach, 21 trace minerals, 500 times more Vitamin C than oranges, 13% protein more than whole wheat, and loaded more with other vitamins such as Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamins B1, B2, B6 and Vitamin E.

The secret is out. Tibetan Goji Berries for longevity. Eat it daily and live longer, but don’t forget that there are far more superfoods out there and that Goji Berries, as we know today are only the second best berries for anti aging, Acai berries contain even 4 times more antioxidants then Goji. If Li would haveknown what we know today about nutrition and superfoods, he could probably still be around to tell the story himself…

Minerals are Essential to Building Maximum Health

Minerals are the foundational building blocks of all forms of matter and life

Did you know that most of America’s agricultural land was documented to be depleted of the majority of essential minerals and nutrients as early as the 1930’s? Senate document no. 264 of the 74th congress, second session, 1936, states:

“…Commercially grown food today has almost no nutritional value. The fruits, vegetables, and grains we eat today are starving us to death; no man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his body with the minerals he requires to stay healthy.”

Various mineralsDiscover the role that minerals and mineral-rich superfoods play in building high levels of physical health! Partially due to the rapid rise in health complaints in America traceable directly to mineral deficiencies, the role of minerals, trace minerals and M-state elements in maintaining health is now a widely studied science. But why are minerals so important to physical health?

The Building Blocks of DNA and RNA

The Periodic Table of 117 Elements form the basic building blocks of Nature. They are the physical foundations of both basic and complex forms of matter. Our DNA and RNA are built solely of just a few of these elements – phosphate, carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen.

Varying combinations of just four of the five elements – carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen, are used to construct the amino acid chains that form our DNA and RNA. Phosphate, in combination with a sugar made up of these same four elements, form the structural spiral that holds the various chains of amino acids together. Amino acids form the basis of proteins which in turn build a cell.

An interesting side note is, that a single cell (which is less than a millimeter long) contains two meters of DNA! http://www.chm.bris.ac.uk/motm/dna/dna.htm

Proteins, chromosomes, genes, cells, tissues, organs, glands and bone are further developments of the DNA. They are built by forming more complex structures using additional elements of the Periodic Chart.

What does this mean? Our body is a highly developed combination of the Period Table of Elements. If our body were to be in short supply of one or more of these elements, particularly the 5 basic building blocks of the DNA, isn’t it likely that a few basic body functions could begin to deteriorate?

Minerals

There are 117 known elements related to the Periodic Table, of which 94 are commonly found on earth. Minerals are typically either pure forms, or combinations of, the 94 common elements. There are over 4,000 minerals known to exist, with more being discovered all the time.

Minerals are recognized as essential to the construction and performance of thousands of chemical, hormonal and enzymatic processes in the body. Silica, the most essential macro mineral, for example, is required for all connective tissue development. Silica is also required to make other minerals more bio-available.

Without a sufficient supply of minerals, the body is limited in its ability to manufacture these essential body builders and regulators. To not supply the body with an adequate stock of bio-available minerals is like asking a mason to build a brick wall without providing the bricks. Bring the bricks on site and the building of the wall can begin. Stock the body with an adequate supply of minerals, then thousands of biological processes can move forward with ease and efficiency. The body will simply clean house and heal itself.

Health Should Come Easy For Today’s Children

The Health of our Children must be our First Concern

Children and HealthIn the past twenty years a lot has changed in the world of everyday foods. Not long ago, families woke up to a breakfast of orange juice made from a frozen concentrate, white toast with butter and jelly, scrambled whole eggs with bacon or sausage and a side of sugary cereal with low fat cow’s milk. This was the norm back then and slowly the norm seems to be changing. Today, it is much easier to give kids healthy super food options considering the plentiful amounts of new exotic super foods on the market- packaged and available for your everyday convenience.

Today, it is easy to wake up to a breakfast of Acai Berries or fresh squeezed orange or tangerine juice, or a freshly blended smoothie. The white toast and butter could easily be substituted with whole wheat, oatmeal or spelt bread-a drizzle of honey or real fruit jam on the side. The scrambled eggs and bacon can be substituted with scrambled egg whites or tofu scramble. The bacon replaced by one of the many available soy protein ‘bacon’ and ‘sausage’ options available in your grocers freezer. Sugary cereal can be replaced with whole grain cereals free of artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners, yet still packaged to appeal to the scrutinizing eyes of children. Cow’s milk, which is high in saturated fat and hormones, can easily be replaced with soy, rice or even almond milk, all much healthier alternatives.

SNACKS: Goodbye Ring Ding’s and Ho Ho’s, hello Snackimals and Uncle Eddie’s

The snack world has always been a deal breaker for kids and healthy eating. Kids and candy go hand in hand and a childhood without treats would feel quite dull and deprived. But the definition of a treat is what is drastically changing in recent years. Back in the nineties, I recall seeing kids and teenagers toting treats for school snacks such as Hostess Donuts, Twinkies, Doritos, Fruit Snacks with gooey-green-sour-slime centers, and even bagels smothered in whole fat cream cheese. All of these choices are either high in sugar and/or high in saturated or trans fat. Not good. Today, the healthy snack marketplace is booming with healthy options for kids. There are cookies called Snackimals, high in flavor and fun yet low in fat and completely vegan. Healthy yet tasty granola bars and chips like Pirates Booty are also available and enjoyed as new age treats of today.

SUPERFOODS: Who needs vitamin pills when you have Vitamuffins, acai juice and soy.

Super foods are a hot trend. Super foods are foods that not only taste good, but offer some sort of healthy benefit or healing property. A few trendy super food qualities are omega fats, fiber, antioxidants, soy protein and phytochemicals. Companies like Navitas Naturals bring exotic super foods like goji berries into mainstream markets. Parents of kids today probably didn’t have such plentiful options for purchasing super foods. They would’ve had to venture into an advanced Health Food store to find such delicacies as almond butter, acai berry juice, kombucha tea and coconut water. But today it is easy! Parents can easily put super foods into the forefront of kids diets. There should be absolutely no excuse for unhealthy children who grow into unhealthy adults. If kids embrace this new world healthy norm, I’d predict that rates of heart disease and cancer will plummet. However, the marketing and finance departments have got to step in.

Marketing healthy foods to kids is tough especially when you have to compete against companies like Pepsi Cola, McDonalds and Hershey’s. These companies market mainly to kids and teens, cheap costing, low nutrition foods. However there are a number of companies that are trying to step in where health food marketing agents have failed. Websites introduce children to fruits and veggies at a young age by creating fun characters and selling gift and apparel items. Kids can learn about and fall in love with a favorite fruit or vegetable from a very young age. Click the link below to see my top ten superfoods list.

Edible Gold – Super Food Colloidal Gold

Gold CrystalsGold, the chemical element with symbol Au. The metal that has been used for money, a store value, jewelry, sculpture and ornamentation. Simply put, Gold is the most sought-after precious metal of the past, and gold is still the most sought-after precious metal today and most probably will be for a long time to come.

Gold has been included in dentistry and in electronics where gold is used for resisting to oxidative corrosion. Gold is also a transition metal and can form univalent and trivalent cations upon salvation. It is also the basis of the gold refining technique known as “inquartation and parting” because gold is insoluble in nitric acid which can dissolve silver and other base metals. As a concept and as an element has permeated its way to culture and lifestyle. In fact, it has its own version in almost everything; from comic books to raw organic superfood.

In comics and films, Gold becomes a superhero. There is the DC comic book superhero named Booster Gold. Booster Gold was created by Dan Jurgens and first appeared in Booster Gold # 1. Booster Gold has been a member of the Justice league and part of the DC Comics’ all-star team of superheroes. Booster Gold has no superhuman abilities but has a power suit that gives him super strength and wrist blasters. He is also an excellent athlete and a strong willpower. Of course his power suit is mostly colored in gold with the other parts colored in blue.

Another superhero that dons the color gold is the superhero from India that is known as Drona. With Drona, his whole costume is bathed in gold. Drona is an Indian Superhero film that starred Abhishek Bachyan and has been described as a Harry Potter meets Prince Of Persia movie that has an original story.

But why dwell on golden superheroes and forever revel in their greatness when you can become the super version of yourself? “How,” you ask, “can that be possible?”

Eat gold. Make gold a part of your diet.

There is the raw organic superfood called Colloidal Gold. This raw organic superfood is really made up of 99.995 pure gold that has been suspended in pure distilled revitalized water and has unique properties that is recognized as super-nutrient important for its broad spectrum support for a healthy high-performance body, mind and mood.

As a supplement, Colloidal Gold has a lot of benefits. It can give a sense of energized yet calm Zen like awareness, mood support in time of winter blues, support in relief of cravings and addiction and then give us a deeper rejuvenating sleep with greater dream recall. Then Colloidal Gold can also increase our sense of optimism and motivation, our over all sense of well-being, our focus, concentration and memory. It can also increase our creativity, imagination, mental clarity and acuity.

Now, all these benefits from this superfood is enough to warrant you superhero status. If you were to ask me, being a superhero in the 21st century means getting through a hectic day with my energy and concentration still at their optimum level. Surviving stress, overcoming disease, and having enough energy to spend time with my loved ones at the end of the day makes me the superhero I want to be.

Gold, is still the most sought-after precious metals of the past, today and in the future; and not just in medicine, electronics or comics. Now, gold, through Colloidal Gold, can also be taken as a supplement, as raw organic super foods. Now who would have thought that gold cannot only make us rich but it can also make us rich in health?

Learn How Green Super Foods Can Improve Your Health

Superfoods can give your body the nutrient rich diet it needs to be healthy!

Nutrient Cycle in the Ocean Graphic Illustration

Illustration: Hannes Grobe

The Western diet at times is so nutritionally poor that the reality is that we are starving our body of what it needs to perform. The soil in which our food grows is becoming depleted, nutrient levels are lower than they were years ago. Plus, with all the man-made additives, preservatives and colorings in our foods we are placing so much stress put on our system as our body struggles to deal with these toxins – which can lead to the common illness problems of fatigue and obesity as well as more serious illnesses.

Let’s tell the truth here; we all have our weaknesses, we eat the wrong stuff most of the time and we don’t exercise enough, if at all. But what are the alternatives? Well I think that green superfoods can be at least a major part of the solution.

Superfoods, coming from the land or from the sea, are the most nutritionally rich foods available – they are packed full of vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and phytonutrients *. The green superfoods are so called due to their high chlorophyll content. Chlorophyll has blood cleansing properties and is thought to help rid your body of some of the toxins caused by our western diet.

Other key benefits are that they can act as an energy booster, helping us with stamina to get through our busy lives and by strengthening our immune systems.

Once our body has received and been satisfied with the nutrients it needs to function it will stop craving for additional food.

Below is a brief synopsis of three green superfoods:

Wheatgrass is fantastic for your overall health through its cleansing and detoxifying properties. It can really help improve a sluggish digestive system, leaving you feeling refreshed and more energetic.

Chlorella is great for boosting the immune system and can really help with a detox program. Its ability to grab hold of toxins and remove them from your system can leave you feeling cleaner inside.

Spirulina, which is a microscopic blue green algae, is bursting full of protein and can really help to improve our stamina levels. It is becoming a lot more popular with athletes and gym-goers who find it improves their performance.

I hope my article will help more people to understand superfoods and in particular how they may reduce cravings for processed foods. Ultimately we all have a choice about what we put into our bodies, but as mentioned at the beginning of the article, you can’t expect your body to function properly if you fuel it with the wrong type of food.

Blueberries – Super Food For a Reason

What makes blueberries a superfood?

Blueberries don't really look anything special. Yet they are quite delicious and versatile. In fact it is strange to believe that such a small fruit is actually a superfood. In the interests of improving my health and that of my family I've been doing some studying about superfoods, the pros, cons and benefits. I'm also interested in how we can increase our use of these superfoods in our diet without blowing the budget. Consequently, I'm not only learning all about superfoods and their uses but how to grow them myself (wherever practical).

Blueberries are a superfood because they are packed with anti-oxidants and phytonutrients. Why are these important? Antioxidants help reduce free radicals in our bodies and are widely believed to help prevent heart disease and cancer. Phytonutrients are still undergoing research but it is known that? they also help to reduce free radicals. It is also the fact that they are rich in phytonutrients that means although they do not contain significant amounts of Vitamins C or E the body receives as much antioxident protection as if? you had taken vitamin C and E. These little blue berries also contain potassium (an essential mineral for strengthening blood vessels) and vitamin C. It is this richness in vitamins and minerals that makes them a superfood and the top choice for adding to a healthy diet. By adding blueberries to your diet you can help?lower your risk of heart disease and cancer. Another amazing benefit is that? they are also anti-inflammatory. Another amazing benefit is the effect that they have on our brain. Research has shown that blueberries high quantities of phytonutrients help improve the communication between brain cells and can delay the onset of dementia and aging. When choosing your blueberries you need to look for the darker coloured berries as the darker the colour the more anti-oxidents they contain. Growing your own blueberries is relatively simple and will give you a fresh supply but the best part is you can also freeze them. Frozen and dried blueberries are just as beneficial to your health and diet as fresh. Fresh, frozen or dried there really is no reason not to have blueberries in your home ready to add to your diet every day. You do not have to eat blueberries by the handful. Instead you can add them to a range of delicious recipes. In fact adding blueberries to a smoothie has the added advantage of giving you additional fruit portions and calcium. A very simple idea for a smoothie is to add 1 cup of blueberries, to 1 cup of pro-biotic low fat natural yoghurt, half a cup of fruit juice (orange or pineapple are great) and a teaspoon of honey. Mix in a blender or smoothie maker and serve. Another delicious and simple way to add blueberries to your diet is to make blueberry muffins or fruity granola pots. Both of these dishes are great ways to get your children to eat blueberries.
