News from the Superfoods Front

Skin Cancer – One Year Later

Healthy Foods - SuperfoodsIt’s been a while since I found the time to write about myself and how I’m doing with superfoods and healthy living. I’m a successful webmaster and internet marketer and it comes with the territory that we alway have the least time to work on our own sites. I first started this blog about superfoods and information that I feel, everybody needs and is entitled to have, one year ago and I’m walking the walk since then. I don’t know if you realized, but we are living in the most fantastic time ever! Never before, in history of mankind, we had the possibility to get the worlds best superfoods delivered to our doorsteps. Neither our parents nor any of our ancestors could go the local health store and just get the world’s best food supplements for a more or less affordable price. No generation before us had ever the chance to simply order all superfoods and food supplements online! As I said, we’re living in an incredible time! We can have it all today; and who dares to say that we can’t get 150 years old if we only eat the best superfoods? Now it’s all in our hands what we do with this unique chance. All the information about superfoods is available on the internet today and so nobody can say: “I didn’t know… nobody told me..”

Who is interested in Superfoods?

Goji Berries BranchBut you know what; I found that only a fraction of the people who could actually afford to live healthy, really do live healthy! What amazes me most after talking with hundreds of people about superfoods, healthy living and longevity, is that most of them don’t seem to care much and love their burgers and french fries! Some people though, had wide open ears and adapted my raw food diet which consists mainly of delicious,  fresh organic salads made of all kinds of vegetables, organic eggs (only organic eggs or none at all), Spirulina, fresh carrot and apple juice and sometimes fresh fish.  I am not a vegan nor a strict vegetarian, I don’t eat meat and I wouldn’t even get near a chicken anymore today! If you feel you need to eat chicken, watch the movie “Food Inc”, I promise, chicken will never the the same. Many people also tell me that they don’t want to get old, being afraid of becoming helpless and dependent. but that’s not what happens; if you live healthy you will get old and vital and you will be in charge of your life. But I’m not giving in! With many people who have changed their diet after talking with me and seeing (and often tasting) how I live, I’m still in contact today and I get amazing feedback!

What is the perfect diet?

Fresh Organic WheatgrassThere is no such thing as a perfect diet, I’m afraid. A diet is individual for each person but don’t worry, you have your body as your best friend! Your body will soon tell you what the ideal diet for you is. Follow your nose and your instincts. If something doesn’t taste good when you try it the first time, give it a couple of more chances, our body is a world champion in adjusting. Things I never liked to eat taste fantastic today! I even like Spirulina. I suggest that  you try to eat raw food, if possible organic or as much organic as you can get or afford, for one month and watch your weight carefully. Raw food also contains sugar and sometimes a lot of sugar. Sweet fruits and even superfoods like amalaki / gooseberry, bananas and pineapple, but also carrots and cucumbers contain large amounts of sugars. While  these sugars are of the ‘good kind’ of sugars, not like the white sugar from the supermarket, they will still produce fat in your body. Here is where exercising kicks in! A good diet doesn’t consist of healthy food only. Other factors for a balanced health and longevity, are exercise and meditation. If your body is fit, your digesting system will work perfect and keep everything in balance. After one month you should already be able to see significant results! Your skin will look healthier, you will feel fit the whole day long and will not get tired in the afternoon anymore. You will probably find that you have been very productive in whatever it is you’re doing. After four to eight weeks on an organic superfoods diet your weight will also have leveled, and even if you loose weight in the beginning, your body will automatically find it’s ideal weight after some time.

My List of Superfoods

Finally I want to give you a list of the healthy foods and superfoods that made my meals interesting, tasty and absolutely healthy during the past year! I also want to add that my cancer has gone, I’m obviously still sticking around, and that I won’t give it a chance to come back! For me it was the yellow card in the world championship finals and we all know what a second yellow card means! Therefore I will keep up my healthy and very tasty diet, keep on doing sports like bicycling, swimming, weight lifting and running several times a week and live at least  another seventy years! It’s all about the right nutrition, antioxidants and being fit and therefore everything is possible and no one before us had the chance to try…

Top 5 Superfoods That Make Your Skin Sparkle

How to get a glowing skin with help of superfoods?

Curing skin problems with superfoodsYou have to nourish yourself with the most nutritious foods for glowing skin in the world, and you’ll see your skin get healthier and naturally more moisturized. The effects won’t be immediate but over time and if you use superfoods regularly you will have amazing results.

How to Get Healthy Skin with Superfoods

Superfoods are foods and supplements with a remarkably high nutrient content, some of which can be eaten just like any other foods while others are more for supplementing.

Adding any of these to your diet can give great benefits to your skin, as they nourish and help the skin get healthier from the inside out.

1. MSM

This mineral-rich food supplement, Methylsulfonylmethane, has proven to be superb for the health of the skin and whole body. It is already present in your body and in many foods, but when you supplement with it your body gets a much needed boost to create glowing, moisturized skin. It can also be used topically to help repair the skin.

2. Algae

In Japan they eat both fresh and dried Wakame algae for its health-giving, mineral-rich properties and abilities to keep the skin young and beautiful. It has also shown to be beneficial as an ingredient in skin cream, proven to increase skin elasticity and glowing tone of the skin.

3. Maca

This is especially good if you have a lot of blemishes or acne and suspect it is caused by hormonal imbalance. Maca is proven to balance the hormones if you take it consistently for a few months, and this should help clear up your skin.

4. Royal Jelly

This is a popular anti-aging supplement which is rich proteins and other nutrients that are great for the skin, and has shown to improve certain skin conditions. It can also be used topically like a face mask or in a cleansing tonic.

5. Raw Cacao

Raw cacao is very rich in health-giving minerals, fantastic if you want to get glowing skin. It is rich in the vital magnesium, vitamin C and antioxidants. Put it in a fruit smoothie or buy a delicious raw chocolate bar. Raw cacao butter can also be used topically as it is a great moisturizer.

These are all great ways for how to get glowing skin, and what most of them have in common are a high content minerals and antioxidants. More regular foods that are also super healthy are dark leafy greens, all kinds of berries and pomegranate.

Getting enough nutrition is definitely the foundation of improving your skin, but it’s not all there is. Another great way for how to get glowing skin is using a natural skin cream with proven effective ingredients like Cynergy TK and Natural vitamin E.

Superfoods For Health

What are Superfoods? Superfoods are whole foods. Whole foods are foods that are unprocessed or are only minimally processed in a way that none or little of the nutrition has been altered or destroyed. Canned foods for example, are processed foods. Cooked foods are also processed foods and therefore less healthy than raw foods.

Superfoods are not necessarily some exotic fruits. Apples have been proven to be potent weapons against cancer, heart disease, asthma, and type 2 diabetes but other fruits and vegetables have some remarkable health benefits as well. Or strawberries and raspberries for instance; they contain a compound called ellagic acid, one of the best cancer fighters nature ever created. When you’re eating these fruits the ellagic acid enters the bloodstream and will help to destroy cancer cells on contact.

Other “Superfoods” which can improve your health, boost your immune system to a healthy level and take care of anti aging are:

  • Beans such as pinto beans, black beans and lentils are another series of foods to lower cholesterol, combat heart disease, stabilize blood sugar, reduce obesity, relieve constipation and lessen the risk of cancer.
  • Blueberries are a small but mighty nutritional force. They combine more powerful antioxidants than any other fruit or vegetables. Although they have many health benefits, the one thing they are known for most is the ability to lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.
  • Broccoli is a great cancer fighter and very beneficial in many other ways as well.
  • Avocados are believed to help lower cholesterol and they are rich in magnesium (an essential nutrient for healthy bones)
  • Dark chocolate may come as a real surprise to most, as being one of the healthiest foods on the planet. It’s a source of phytonutrients which act as an antioxidant that helps protect our DNA and inhibits the growth of unwanted blood vessels. Make sure you buy the right kind of dark chocolate, one that isn’t as processed and has a high cacao content. Raw cacao beans or nibs are even better since the chocolate needs to be heated up.
  • Garlic and onions are great cancer fighting foods
  • Honey is beneficial in maintaining optimal blood-sugar levels. Honey should be consumed as is, fresh from the spoon. adding honey to your tea will destroy most of it’s benefits.
  • Kiwi is an antioxidant all-star. It offers an unusual array of health-promoting substances. One very important thing it does is it promotes heart health by helping to lower triglycerides levels and reducing platelet hyperactivity.

Other superfoods that display great health promoting properties are – oranges, pomegranates, pumpkins, wild salmon, soy, spinach, tea, tomatoes, turkey (skinless breast), walnuts, and low-fat or nonfat yogurt.

I’m not a doctor or nutrition authority, I have become very well-informed about nutrition and healthy eating habits in the last nine years. My Mother died of cancer at age 68, she never got to see her grandson. I made the decision I would feed my family real food as often as possible. We aren’t perfect so I can’t say I’m a total health nut, but I do the best I can.

Today, I’m cautious about the food we eat. I do a lot of research on the Internet, subscribe to several newsletters about alternative health issues.

I suggest that you educate yourself and your family about your health. If your doctor practices conventional medicine and is prescribing prescription drugs, scrutinize his decisions. Have a serious talk with him about nutrition and preventative care. If you don’t get the answers you want, get a second opinion, preferably from a naturopathic doctor. No one said it would be easy, I know that and while we do try to eat right, we are not prefect and our food today is far from being perfect so we will have to take some daily food supplements like vitamin C or Omega3 rich fish oil pills.

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.
