Top 10 Superfoods For Top Performance

Top Ten Superfoods For Body, Brain and Mind

Superfoods- Fresh and dried carobsWhat do you think would happen to your health and your performance if you fueled your body on the most nutritious superfoods available today? You must have wondered which superfoods are actually the best ones. In this article I will give you a quick overview of the top ten superfoods for your body and your brain. Superfoods not only make your body stronger but they also make your brain work better, thus making you more productive and vibrant.

1.) Raw Cacao

Lets start with something very pleasant; everyone likes chocolate right? Chocolate In it's original state, raw cacao is the food source with the highest PEA, the feel good pleasure chemical. Raw cocoa the highest food source of magnesium fueling the biggest mineral deficiency in the west and it contains huge amounts of Vitamin C and amino acids and antioxidants, essential for optimal brain function. Raw Cacao has more than 80'000 ORAC units per 100gram, dutch processed cacao still has 40,000, so don't worry if you don't find raw cacao in your neighborhood. Unsweetened cooking chocolate will do just fine. Remember, oranges have only 700 ORAC per 100g.

2.) Bee Pollen

Back to the honey bees! Bee pollen contain every single trace mineral, and  14 amino acids required for peak mental function. Bee pollen adds a nice flavor to smoothies and fresh shakes and similar to honey, it can take on valuable medicinal qualities depending on it's source. Look for pollens wildcrafted from pristine pollutant-free areas, as the pollen grains are extremely porous substances. Better sources are often at higher altitudes.

3.) Maca

This unusual hormone building yam from Alto Plano Peru has been used for centuries as a strength, stamina and virility building food for high altitude warriors.

4.) Goji Berries

These tasty little berries pack a hefty amount of anti-oxidants, beta-carotene, and lutein. Mineral rich and unusually high in protein these hardy fruits taste somewhere between a cherry and a raisin. Great for snacking on and so revered for their longevity benefits that there's even a Goji festival in Tibet each year.

5.) Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass juice is already a potent nutrient source, when you and grow it using sea water concentrate you can increase it's mineral density and maximize the vitamin production in the wheatgrss. The result is a more intense, very rich juice, from grass that almost glows in the dark from vitality! Wheatgrass doesn't really blend well with anything so best just to down it in shots.

6.) Fish Oil – Krill Oil

Nutritionally dense seawater superfoods are fish oils and krill oils containing substantial levels of important fatty acids and a huge amount of valuable Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids.

7.) Camu Berry

The Camu berries are sometimes also called Camu Camu. The berry comes from the Amazon and was discovered about  20 years ago.  Camu berries are the single highest source of Vitamin C found in nature. A tart, tangy, pink berry with a taste akin to sherbet, Camu is fantastic in smoothies with fresh fruits and berries.

8.) Carob

Carobs grow in the Mediterranean regions and it is the highest food source of the trace mineral calcium. This is particularly interesting as when consumed with Cacao in a 1:3-5 ratio, your body absorbs the minerals into your bones. In old times, especially during warfare, carobs where used as chocolate substitute for children.

9.) Reishi Mushroom

The mushroom of immortality, as reishi mushrooms are also called in ancient china, the reishi mushroom is arguably the best tonic mushroom on earth. Tonic herbs can intelligently adjust your biochemistry up or down as needed, meaning it can be used indefinitely.Reishi Mushrooms are Immune enhancing and spirit calming, it's no wonder this exotic fungi has been revered by Emperors and monks alike for over 4000 years.

10.) Gynostemma Tea (Gynostemma pentaphyllum)

The "Twisting Wine Orchid" gynostemma is often referred to in Asia as 'Ginseng at tea prices', this tasty herb has around 20 times the anti-oxidant load of the much vaunted green tea, a robust slightly sweet flavor and over 80 immune system enhancing adaptogenic compounds. Adaptogenes are stress reducing when taken over a prolonged period of time.Gynostemma is a gentle adaptogenic herb, accumulating due to daily use and excellent in soups or smoothies for those who want the maximum nutritional value from everything they eat.

Men’s Health Issues

Dealing with Health Issues is not our Strongest Point

Prostate Cancer with Gleason Pattern

Picture by: Nephron

Too often, as we age, we tend to become quite leery of visiting our physicians for regular checkups. Regrettably, though, we cannot always rely on the standard, “I feel fine – why see the doc?” Diseases, conditions, and chronic illnesses can wreak havoc for the health and even the life if they don’t manage to be detected and treated early on. Any health related journal or leaflet will tell you, after a specific age, women need to have annual mammograms, pap smears, and also the like, and men must have annual check-ups, as well. Particularly, the prostate have to be kept healthy, and yet too many men are reluctant to face this very real health issue.

It is quite unfortunate that this will prevent a lot of males in today’s society from addressing such an important health issue, however it is certainly true. How many women ought to prod their husbands to the point of exasperation to get them to visit a doctor for an illness, let alone a routine physical? The macho bravado a lot of display is really a sense of fear that something may truly be wrong with them, what if the doctor finds something wrong? What if there are more tests to be conducted to rule out the potential for that dreaded word: cancer? No one, to be honest, wants to find that they’re encountering an illness, nevertheless it is actually better to know than to be kept in the dark. This health issue is of such dire importance that men simply cannot ignore it, and yet they do.

Prostate cancer impacts millions of men the world over, and so many of these cases would have been prevented had the men heeded the recommendation of medical professionals. Why do men appear to ignore the necessity for this exam? Likely, it has to do with the private nature on the exam itself, many men simply have an exceptionally real embarrassment about having their genital areas probed and prodded in a doctor’s office. Whether the doctor is male or female may play a role, as some men are naturally uncomfortable having another man, albeit a doctor, a professional, examine these most private of areas, while others are genuinely skittish about having a female doctor do the same.

All in all, a health issue that can be taken care of quite easily with an annual, routine check-up is one which continues to be ignored by many males. Nobody can stress the need for preventative medicine enough to make men understand of the fact that embarrassment, the fear, the overall feeling of being uncomfortable, are all quite natural, but they must be overcome. To prevent or at least detect prostate cancer early is nowhere near as loathsome as having to go through surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation. Men, take control of your health, and don’t let this health issue be one that you just overlook.

Loose Weight with a Low Glycemic Diet

Weight Loss Strategies

Picture by: Bigplankton

It’s logic that no one in their right mind would make a conscious decision for being extra heavy, would you?. There are no real benefits for being fat. Being heavy carries so many impractical implications with it that it just can’t be all that much fun.

Chubbiness also restricts general movement of the body. Being flabby makes you feel lethargic, even lazy, but it can certainly encourage you to eat even more of the wrong foods that have got you there in the first place. Comparatively, many obese people do not believe they look as good as they could do and some even develop a dislike or maybe a hate for their own body. Tubbiness certainly doesn’t make you feel as good as you could feel, and some say it even dampens your sex life. But more importantly it increases your risk of ill health – and of that there’s no doubt. It is even believed to reduce your life span. There is an abundance of medical evidence to prove this is so, and the effects of obesity will now be so bad that some believe that a great many of our children of today can be the first generation never to outlive their parents. The truth is hard but simple – being flabby and obese encumbers our lives in so many ways…So why can we allow this to happen, why can we do that to ourselves?

So we now sit in the course of an corpulence epidemic and in reality, no one really wants to be or has chosen to get heavy or obese. And that is despite over 200 million websites of eating habits plans, diet regime pills and diet regime potions. And then there’s the authority suggestion, the medical advice, the recommendation of nutritionists and untold food intake companies – all unusually wanting to take your custom. So what isn’t working? We only have to take in the moment and pause…look around us to see that something is obviously very very wrong. And do the government want it for being so? I don’t believe so, as heaviness costs our nation billions of dollars a year. It is perhaps more the case that they are not really sure of how to tackle this self inflicted epidemic, which is second only to smoking in the stakes of measurable loss of life.

So why? Why do we intentionally inflict this self induced ‘illness’ upon ourselves? Incredibly, despite the fact we know which foods we must always eat, we know which foods are good for us and we know which are the ‘badies’. But despite all this, we still eat too much and too much of the wrong stuff. We still self inflict the misery of obesity upon ourselves.

If a close friend appeared for being alarmed and severe in telling you that the food you were almost to eat, contained the deadly poison arsenic in it, your natural reaction that i see to stop ‘dead in your tracks’ or at the least hesitate to confirm. Are they kidding? Do they mean it? And that could be our dilemma in a nut shell. We don’t experience an immediate or real threat to our lives when we are eating what is deemed to get food that is certainly ‘bad’ for us. Some processed foods, most fast foods and all junk foods. we are accustomed to eating it and our ‘egos’ accepts it and therefore there is no threat to our instinctive survival mechanisms. Our primeval instinct to survive does not ‘see’ eating as a threat to life itself. we are natural eating ‘machines’. And so if our ‘egos’ accepts it – we do.

Is there an option to do nothing as an individual? Can we allow to wait for the miracle ‘diet regime drug’ to stem our appetite? Only you can decide. But would you want to be on ‘diet drugs’ for the rest of your life – day in day out drug dependent just for the sake of…eating? Experts say most would not and it almost sounds ludicrous to even consider the option. There is another method…and that could be to go back to basics.

We have existed on this planet for well over 2,000,000 years and for 99.5 percent of the time we survived well as the hunter and gatherer, and proudly became head of the food chain. No, I’m not suggesting in any shape or form that we must go back to living a ‘cave man’ life style, (even though it would probably be healthier!), but I am suggesting we must learn from our genetic inheritance. It is suggested that 99% of our nutritional genes have remained unchanged over that humongous period of time, and yet our diet in the last 50 years has changed beyond all recognition. Totally.

Who are we, apart from just mere mortals to ever think we are able to dictate to ‘Mother Nature’ in providing today’s diet regime, when man’s body has changed and mutated over million years of evolution to accept what is now thought being a much narrower range of ‘acceptable foods’. Our body is doing and saying what it has always done over hundreds and thousands of generations before us, and yet we elect not to listen. We choose to ignore the signs and believe “I’ll be alright”. Our ancestors left us a heritage of which we must be proud – but sadly we are failing to leave anything like as comparable.

For now, obesity still remains a matter of choice…but choice means a decision.

Good News! Acai Berries on the Oprah Winfrey Show

Meanwhile we all have heard about the Acai Berry, the superfood and wonder food for weight loss. Acai Berries on the Oprah Winfrey ShowThe Acai berry was probably the first Superfood to be introduced to most of North America through the Oprah Winfrey Show and her millions of viewers by Dr. Nicolas Perricone. During an episode of Oprah's show, she asked Dr. Perricone to discuss his top ten superfoods. The number one superfood on his list was the Acai berry. The Acai berry comes from the Amazon in Brazil. Dr. Perricone first put forth the amazing properties of the Acai berry in his book The Perricone Promise, a book Oprah highly recommends. This was the first time many in North America have heard about Acai berries, a fruit that has meanwhile grown a reputation to be a wonderfood for weight loss. Acaí berries taste much like a blend of berries and chocolate. Acaí berries are full of amino acids, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids (that's the good fat). And that's in Acai berries:

  • An enormous concentration of antioxidants helping to combat premature aging. Acai contains 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes and 10 to 30 times the anthocyanins than red wine.
  • An excellent composition of mono-unsaturated fats, dietary fiber and phytosterols which helps to promote cardiovascular and digestive health.
  • An almost perfect essential amino acid complex in conjunction with valuable trace minerals, important for good muscle contraction and regeneration of muscles.

NB. Acai berries lose much of their nutritional benefits very quickly after they being picked, so for the best nutritional content, make sure you buy Acai berries that have been freeze dried as close to the natural source as possible. Studies have shown that freeze-dried Acai Berries have the highest level of antioxidants and nutrition, much higher than its juice or its equivalent amount in raw form.

Weight Loss Using Super Foods

Loosing Weight with Superfoods

Acai Pulp from Brazil - the best superfood for weight loss

Picture by Sonia Naisa

According to nutrition experts there is two primary categories of foods that can be called Superfoods. These superfoods satisfy your stomach without stacking on the calories: fruits and vegetables. The nutrients that give fruits and vegetables that have stamina is fiber. Therefore, if fruits and vegetables are in the keeping it off superfood groups, dietary fibers could easily constitute the keeping it off super nutrient. Protein can be considered as another super nutrient. Lately it's getting more scientifically acknowledged that protein could assist to curbing the appetite. Protein can also supercharge your metabolism and offer the needed staying power. But it is pretty important that you select the right proteins for your diet wisely. Similar to other foods, if you are consuming more than your body requires, it will appear on the scales as weight gain, instead of weight loss.

The superfoods detailed below are smart, low-calorie options that will help towards your weight loss efforts:

Green Tea – Researchers suspect that the catechins (assistive phytochemicals) in green tea could activate weight loss through stimulating the body to burning calories and gently reducing body fat. Therefore indulging in either a hot cup or an iced glass of green tea, is something to consider.

Acai Berries – Acai berries come from south America and have become one of the superfoods known to help with weight loss. Acai is very high in the right omega fats, high in protein and fiber. Acai berries are also full of vitamins. The taste of Acai Berries is a bit chocolaty. Since the Acai berry is a completely natural product, it does not pose the same risks to health and wellbeing that synthetic weight loss treatments often do.

Broth – or tomato-based soup – Soups can assist to reducing hunger prior to meals times and increase your feeling of being full.

Green Salads – Consuming a low-calorie salad, which is defined without having the following, lot's of croutons, high fat dressings, and cheese. By opting to have this as a first course can make you feel full, thereby reducing the amount of food you eat for your main course. Wisely selecting the ingredients with high fiber content will aid in fighting those cravings later on in the day.

Yogurt – Try to get organic and probiotic Yogurt if you can. Adding yogurt to your healthy diet can encourage your weight loss efforts. Opting for a low fat yogurt will be more beneficial in fighting off those hunger pangs due to the combining of protein and carbohydrate. Probiotic yogurts are essentially yogurts containing live active cultures. Most natural or regular yogurt is a probiotic food. It contains bacteria of various sorts that are thought to be beneficial to the human body.

Beans – Beans contain a great combination of fiber and protein, beans aid in you feeling fuller for longer, which implies they will work to help curbing your appetite in between your regular meals.

Water – Water is probably the most important, it is your body's life elixir, and you need to be drinking a lot of water throughout the whole day. You should start your day by drinking 1 – 1.5 liters in the morning BEFORE you drink or consume anything else. Not even Green tee. It is a great noncaloric drink, and you are able to get it by drinking unsweetened tea and mineral water with lemon or lime. This will add valuable antioxidants to your diet. Besides assisting in flushing those toxins from the body, it can also help you to feel fuller for longer. Therefore when you get hungry, try to drink a glass of water before seizing the next snack.

Organic High Fiber Whole Grain Cereals – Whole grain cereals generally help boosting the fiber and nutritional content of your meal. The easiest way to give your day to day diet a wholegrain boost is to have a bowl of higher fiber wholegrain cereal as breakfast or a snack. Happy Weight Loss

Noni, Ginger Turmeric Enzymes and other Superfoods

Morinda citrifolia Flower of Noni BerriesConsidered by health experts such as David Wolfe and Steve Adler, Island Fire has to be the best Noni product on the market, it consists of Tahitian Noni, ginger, Hawaiian Turmeric, cayenne, lemon, apple cider vinegar, and trace minerals (both from colloidal, and plant and ocean-sourced ionic minerals). A shot or two in the morning will really get your metabolism and taste buds going! This is a daily health tonic focused on rejuvenation, detoxification, superior energy, good mood, and overall health. The leading authority on raw foods and superfoods, David Wolfe, has mentioned Noni numerous times as the world's most powerful fruit. It is found all over the Polynesian Islands and other tropical environments. In the last 15 years, all sorts of Noni products have been introduced to the market. Unfortunately, most of the benefits are lost in the pasteurization or dilution of the juice with other fruit juices and sugars.

Noni fruit (Morinda_citrifolia)For thousands of years Noni has been used in Polynesian culture, and is known in Polynesian lore to be a cure-all food. Noni contains has the highest natural concentration of polysaccharides than any other plant species. Polysaccharides are a type of complex sugar that stimulates the immune system to be more resistant to immune system disorders. As we learn more about this, the future of nutrition may one day lie in polysaccharides. Noni also contains a tremendous amount of the beauty mineral sulfur, which is especially good for our hair, skin, and nails. Another superfood characteristic of Noni is its anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties. This means it can assist in boosting your immune system. And because there is no added sugar to Island Fire (only 1 gram of sugar total per 1 ounce serving), there is no sugar stimulation when you have an ounce or two. Instead, there is long-term energy that is supportive of your immune system. Also, because it has never been flash heated, it is actually enzyme active and live. Island Fire actually contains more than 140 bio-active enzymes.

These enzymes, and enzymes in general, are crucial for our health and energy. Enzymes are the "workers" that convert the food we eat into energy, enable our five senses, and break down food into usable nutrition and waste. What puts Island Fire Noni Elixir leaps ahead of other Noni products besides being unpasteurized and organic is its added ingredients such as Turmeric and Ginger (as well as cayenne, lemon, and raw apple cider vinegar). Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidant. It is actually the greatest anti-inflammatory in the Ayurvedic System. This assists in reducing joint inflammation if you're injured or after a workout.

The ginger, because of its high sulfur content, is also wonderful for muscle recovery and tissue repair. Sulfur also helps rejuvenate our skin and protect it from the sun, free radical damage and wrinkling. Island Fire Noni Elixir is a powerful tonic to use in supporting your overall health, immune system, and energy. The smell and taste can be quite interesting as first but can grow on you the more you drink it. If you've ever taken a shot of liquor before, you can definitely handle Noni though! You can sip Island Fire alone or on ice, just like you would a cocktail, you can take a straight shot of it in the morning to get your metabolism and energy going, you could even mix it with some coconut water or soaked and blended goji berries to sweeten it up naturally.

It's wonderful that Elements for Life has come up with such a healthy way to make Noni juice taste good though. Enjoy this one of a kind superfood Elixir.

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?
