For centuries, civilizations have understood the value of green food such as Spirulina and Chlorella, and cereal grasses such as Wheat and Barley. Now, in the early twenty-first century, scientists are rediscovering the benefits of these Green Super Foods, which respectively contain the highest levels of easily digestible vegetable proteins, amino acids, beta carotene, mixed carotenoids, vitamin B-12, iron, trace minerals, the essential fatty acids GLA and linoleic acid, phycocyanin, polysaccharides, chlorophyll and sulfolipids.
In the Greek language, the word “Phyto” means plant. Phytonutrients are the “raw material” nature provides for your body to cure itself. Derived from living things, primarily plants, phytonutrients are a combination of naturally occurring phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and enzymes. Also known as Super Green Foods or Green Super Foods.
Phytonutrients provide the synergistic combination of all of natures raw materials for healing the body – not just isolated and artificially created products.
Astounding success in the reversal of chronic degenerative diseases has been experienced through the application of a mainly vegetarian diet of living foods consisting of Spirulina, Chlorella, Wheat Grass, Barley Grass, sprouts, fruit, vegetables, and sprouted or fermented grains, seeds and nuts.
Dr. Norman Walker, a centenarian health researcher, lived primarily on fruit and vegetables for over 60 years. He felt his longevity was due in large part to the liquid oxygen, enzymes and chlorophyll contained in fresh juices.
Chlorophyll is the “blood” of all plant life. It is the protein in plant life and closely resembles the molecules of human red blood cells. Chlorophyll has been compared to hemoglobin molecules, the oxygen carrier in human blood, and shown to be almost identical. By taking a percentage of Green foods and juices every day, you add vital nutrients such as minerals, enzymes, vitamins, oxygen, and protein to your blood.
What is the importance of chlorophyll’s resemblance to human blood?
- Chlorophyll and hemoglobin are so much alike in atom structure it allows it to be absorbed quickly and begin to rebuild the blood stream.
- Chlorophyll is the basis of all plant life and the first product of light. It contains more light energy than any other element.
- Farmers in the Midwest who have sterile cows and bulls put them on wheat grass to restore fertility. (The high magnesium content in chlorophyll builds enzymes that restore the sex hormones.)
- Studies of various animals have shown chlorophyll to be free of any toxic reaction.
- Chlorophyll is anti-bacterial and can be used inside and outside the body as a healer.
- Liquid chlorophyll washes drug deposits from the body.
- Chlorophyll purifies the liver and neutralizes toxins in the body.
- Chlorophyll improves blood sugar challenges (Hypoglacemia)
In the American Journal of Surgery (1940), Benjamin Gruskin, M.D. recommends chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits. The article suggests the following clinical uses for chlorophyll: To clear up foul smelling odoors, neutralize strep infections, heal wounds, hasten skin grafting, cure chronic sinusitis, overcome chronic inner-ear inflammation and infection, reduce varicose veins and heal leg ulcers, eliminate impetigo and other scabby eruptions, successfully treat inflammation of the uterine cervix, get rid of parasitic infections, reduce typhoid fever…
George S. Bailey, Ph.D. – “Chlorophyll” may play an important role in prevention of certain cancers. Researchers in the early 1980s discovered that chlorophylls and related chemicals can inhibit the ability of certain DNA-damaging chemicals to cause mutations in bacteria. Molecular geneticists now know that most if not all human cancers carry mutations in one or more genes that control the rates at which individual cells divide, differentiate, or die.
According to current thinking, various combinations of mutations that upset this delicate balance to favour uncontrolled cell growth can then enable this irreversibly damaged cell to form a primary cancer in the lung, liver, blood, bone, skin, or another body organ. Therefore, it seems at least theoretically possible that the anti-mutagenic power of the chlorophylls might allow them to inhibit and reduce the formation of cancers in humans. Recent progress in our laboratory and elsewhere has brought this promise closer to realization.”
According to Dr. Birscher, nature uses chlorophyll as a body cleanser, re-builder and neutralizer of toxins. Tooth decay is the result of other degenerative changes in the body. ” A small amount of wheat grass in the human diet helps prevent tooth decay.”
Pollution, processed and cooked foods have destroyed many of our digestive enzymes, which now can be supplemented by juicing, while at the same time providing concentrated selenium, which helps eliminate toxic heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic.
Why do we need “Super Green Food?”
Greens are our most important food, because they provide us with all of the essential components of health. They are our food, as well as our medicine. Where green plants cannot grow, we cannot live.
