More than 50% of the dry weight of human body is protein, which is important for the healthy appearance of our hair, skin, nails and other body tissues. To stay in good health, we need to supply our bodies with food that contains a protein structure virtually identical to our body. Protein found in meat and dairy unfortunately does not have the ideal protein structure, and is further distorted by cooking.
A flesh and dairy eating human body goes into overdrive, to adapt to these foreign protein sources, and must learn how to extract the necessary nutrients. The unused portions (wastes), are then stored in the body as fat and other toxic residues, which then begin to degenerate, causing a breakdown of the immune system and structural damage to organs and body tissue. It is much more sensible to ingest protein from food that resembles the protein structure in our body.
Super green food protein is the optimal form of protein. Out of 21 needed amino acids, green food contains 18. Our body itself manufactures the other 3. Many professional athletes rely on green food such as wheat grass, for the strength and stamina it gives them. Greens foods are a great choice of protein, having twice the protein of hamburgers by weight, without the added cholesterol and fat!
What is Chlorophyll?
Chlorophyll “liquid sunshine” is the protein in plant life, and closely resembles the molecules of human red blood cells. By taking a percentage of green foods and juices every day, you are adding vital nutrients such as minerals, enzymes, vitamins, oxygen, and protein to your blood. Nature uses chlorophyll as a body cleanser, re-builder and neutralizer of toxins and it may even play an important role in prevention of certain cancers.
Researchers, in the early 1980s, discovered that chlorophylls, and other related chemicals, could inhibit the ability of certain DNA-damaging chemicals to cause mutations in bacteria. Human cancers carry mutations in one or more genes that control the rates at which individual cells divide, differentiate, or die. Various combinations of mutations that upset this delicate balance, in favour of uncontrolled cell growth, can then enable this irreversibly damaged cell to form a primary cancer in the lung, liver, blood, bone, skin, or other body organ.
Benefits of chlorophyll
Purifying: Chlorophyll is a natural antiseptic with anti-bacterial effect on wounds, and has an anti-yeast effect in the digestive tract, helping with candida challenges.
Anti-Inflammatory: Chlorophyll assists in reducing inflammation. It can be used to help counteract the effects of arthritis, stomach ulcers, colitis, sore throats, and other inflammatory conditions.
Nourishing: Chlorophyll builds blood, promotes healthy intestinal flora, and assists in liver cleansing.
What are enzymes?
Whether you have a cut you want to heal or desire to lose five pounds, enzymes must do the actual work. The life and abilities of the enzymes found naturally in our bodies can be extended if we help them from the outside, by adding enzymes like the ones found in wheat grass.
Think of enzymes as highly skilled workers. Each enzyme performs a specific function within the body, while in union with other enzymes.
It is crucial for the human body to ingest adequate enzymes on a daily basis, if we don’t it will eventually result in overall poor health. Unfortunately, we don’t get all the enzymes we need from the cooked, sugary, over salted and over processed foods we tend to eat on a daily basis.
If your body has to use its own enzymes for the digestion of nutrient and enzyme depleted food, those enzymes will be robbed from the other organs, which weakens them and makes them more susceptible to degenerative diseases. The body is then prone to allergic reactions, due to a deficiency in enzymes.
Enzymes have also been linked to the prevention and curing of cancer. Enzymes deter the cancer cells ability to hide from the immune system and spread throughout the body.
Enzymes are simply the key to well-being.
