If you’re like most people, you’ve been told to “Eat your fruits and vegetables” since you were a child. Mainstream media including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, health and fitness publications, National Public Radio, as well as countless university studies have long proclaimed that a diet rich in vegetables and fruits can increase your energy levels…boost your immune system…reduce your risk of illness..and recharge your body.
However, although fruits and vegetables are indeed good for your health… eating them is no longer good enough to promote optimum health and wellness. Here’s why:
Conventionally Grown Fruits and Vegetables Are Nutritionally Depleted – and May Even be Hazardous to Your Health
- Today’s produce is significantly lower in essential nutrients than foods produced 50 years ago. This is because modern farming practices have depleted our soils of minerals. Depleted soils yield nutrient-poor produce. You now need approximately 10 servings of vegetables and fruits to obtain the nutritional equivalent of 1 serving from 50 years ago.
- The long shipping and storage time between harvest and market degrades the nutrient content further. As a result, most vegetables and fruits sold in commercial establishments are nutritionally depleted.
- The use of pesticides and other chemical additives in non-organic farming yield nutritionally deficient produce that may have long-term health risks.
- An estimated 80% of food crops (ranging from corn, tomatoes, alfalfa to sugar beets) are now genetically engineered. These genetically modified (GMO) crops have had their genetic material altered using genetic engineering techniques. Genetically engineered produce have been shown to cause serious health problems in those who consume them. The first-ever long-term study of the health effects of GMO foods (conducted at the University of Caen in France) shows that a lifelong diet of genetically modified foods causes tumors, organ damage and premature death in lab mice.
Multivitamins Are Not the Solution for Promoting Long-Term Health
According to the world’s largest study on multivitamins, people who take multivitamins supplements are not gaining health benefits. Instead, most of the vitamins and minerals are excreted, thereby earning them the nickname of “expensive urine.”
That’s because this is the way vitamin and mineral supplements are made: The nutrients in foods are isolated and extracted, and put into a synthetic chemical structure that the body does not recognize as food.
Synthetic vitamins often have an entirely different chemical structure from those found in food.

While there are several types of food-based multivitamins and minerals on the market, many health authorities consider three super foods the ideal supplements, especially for those who are not able to consume a sufficient amount of organic fruits and vegetables each day.
Superfood No. 1: Spirulina
Spirulina is blue green algae, which is considered the most nutrient dense food on the planet. It contains concentrations of nutrients far exceeding any other known vegetation.
It is the best source of vegetable protein, containing about 65 % protein—higher than any other natural food—far more than animal flesh (20%), eggs (12%), whole milk (3%),soybeans (35%), peanuts (25%), or grains (8 to 14%). It is considered a complete protein because it contains all the essential amino acids.
Spirulina grows so fast that it yields twenty times more protein per acre than soybeans. It also contains extraordinary concentrations of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, such as beta carotene (ten times more concentrated than that of carrots), iron, potassium, magnesium, copper, calcium, chromium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, zinc, essential trace
minerals, and gamma-linolenic acid.
It is also the most abundant source of Vitamin B-12, and is also rich in phytonutrients and functional nutrients that have a demonstrably positive effect on health.
Because spirulina’s nutrient profile is more potent than that of any other food, plant, grain or herb, it is considered a superior whole food alternative to isolated vitamin supplements. In addition to its contribution to the body’s nutritional needs, it has been shown to be effective in the treatment of cancer, high cholesterol, allergies, anemia, elevated blood sugar, cardiovascular diseases, viral infections, inflammatory conditions, liver damage and immunodeficiency diseases.
Superfood No. 2: Chlorella
Chlorella is a single-celled, water-grown algae that contains more health enhancing chlorophyll per gram than any other plant. It is extremely rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids and many other nutrients that are beneficial to your health.
Chlorella also has an abundance of nucleic acids, which have powerful rejuvenating properties that slow down the aging process, keeps the skin looking youthful and wrinkle-free, and helps you have a longer life.
Dr. Benjamin S. Frank, author of The No-Aging Diet and Nucleic Acid Therapy in Aging and Degenerative Disease, treated his patients with foods rich in nucleic acids.
He reported that such a diet made his patients’ look and feel 6 to 12 years younger than their chronological age, and their overall health dramatically improved. They also experienced a substantial fading of lines and wrinkles, and developed healthier, younger-looking skin after only 2 months.
Superfood No. 3: Moringa
The moringa is a genus of trees indigenous to Southern India and Northern Africa, and now cultivated in Central and South America, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and the Philippines. The leaves of the species called moringa oleifera, have become recognized in recent years as being highly beneficial to human health.
Moringa leaves are an anti-aging powerhouse because they contain several thousand times more of the powerful anti-aging nutrient zeatin than any other known plant. A study published in Rejuvenation Research shows the undeniable youth-preserving effects of zeatin because of its ability to induce cell division and growth, and delay cell aging.
With the zeatin contained in moringa, new skin cells grow at a faster rate than old skin cells die. This results in a marked reduction of wrinkles and more youthful skin appearance.
Moringa leaves also has 90 essential nutrients and 2 compounds that prevent cancer and reducing tumors (or retarding their growth).
This has earned moringa the reputation of being a cancer preventative plant. India’s natural Ayurvedic medicine uses moringa leaves to prevent and treat over 300 diseases.
A Bureau of Plant Industry report states that, gram per gram, moringa leaves contain: twice the protein content of 8 ounces of milk (and 4 times the calcium); the Vitamin C equivalent of 7 oranges; the potassium content of 3 bananas; 3 times the iron of spinach; and 4 times the Vitamin A of carrots.
How to “Drink” Your Superfoods Every Day
If you’re among the 70% of adults who aren’t getting their recommended daily servings of vegetables and the thought of eating ten servings of spinach, collards, kale, green beans, peppers, and other green vegetables doesn’t sound appealing (or possible for you to do)—you have the option of taking spirulina, chlorella and moringa instead.
