Wholefood Nutrition

By now most of us know that we need to eat a selection of fruits and vegetables each day.

We also know how difficult it can be to do. Especially to ensure we’re eating them at their prime.  How often have you purchased fresh fruit and vegetables only to place them in the refrigerator, forget about them and then throw them out?  I think we have all done that. Plus most vegetables need to be cooked and we know that diminishes their nutritional value, unless you like eating raw sweet potatoes etc.

Is there another way?  I think so.  Imagine being able to consume more than 50 raw plant ingredients any time you wish?

Fucoidan

Seaweed has been a staple of the Japanese diet for centuries.  A constituent of seaweed is called fucoidan. Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide found mainly in various species of brown seaweed such as kombu, limu moui, bladderwrack, wakame, mozuku, and hijiki.

Japanese researchers have discovered the fucoidan polysaccharide, causes various forms of cancer cells to self-destruct. This process is called apoptosis. It is the natural process where living organisms eliminate harmful cells. Sulfated polysaccharides such as Fucoidan have been shown to help in inducing apoptosis.

Surely this can be one explanation for the people of Okinawa, Japan to have some of the longest life expectancies in Japan. They happen to have one of the highest per capita rates of consumption of Kombu – one gram per person per day.  Also, Japan has the lowest cancer death rate.

Since 1970, Fucoidan has been cited in over 800 independent, unsolicited third party scientific studies. Please have a look at pubmed.gov – the US National Library of Medicine website.

Fucoidan is a wonderful immune booster with no harmful side effects with wonderful health benefits.

Some conditions that can be positively impacted by a consistent consumption of Fucoidan are:

  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Arthritis
  • High blood pressure
  • Gastrointestinal function
  • And more.

About Adult Stem Cells

We all have a natural supply of adult stem cells.  However, this natural supply diminishes over time. So what are adult stem cells?

Adult stem cells are pluripotency cells in our bodies, which means they can self-renew and differentiate into specialized cells of various tissues. What’s so amazing and important is that they can become cells of any part of your body which needs healing.

Our adult stem cells flow through the bloodstream looking for acute injuries or chronic degeneration. When they arrive at the site of the damaged tissue they multiply and then transform into healthy cells of that tissue type.

The key to optimum healing is the number of circulating stem cells; the more stem cells that are circulating in your blood the more which are available to migrate to heal and repair injured tissue.

Natural, self-healing is the new paradigm of health and wellness.  Increasing the number of adult stem cells in your body supports this change in thinking. Increasing the number of available adult stem cells works wonders for an aging or ailing body. Think of adult stem cells as super-powered “master cells” that can duplicate and regenerate a wide range of injured tissues.

So how can you encourage your body to release more stem cells?  Fortunately there is a natural nutrient called fucoidan which has the remarkable ability to enhance your stem cell production. Fucoidan gives your body the nourishment required to boost the natural production of adult stem cells in your bone marrow which dramatically increases your number of adult stem cells.

Fucoidan is extracted from seaweed, the fucoidan product we recommend is called Maritch Fucoidan produced by Marinova Pty Ltd, Australia. Their fucoidan is certified organic, hand-harvested from wild grown seaweed from pristine ocean waters.

Not only is their fucoidan is best quality, certified organic, their extraction process, called Triple E (electrolyte enhanced extraction), is an advanced solvent-free cold water process which ensured maximum potency, integrity and bio-availability.   Other fuciodan products may have been harvested by mechanical means, from non-pristine sources, not certified organic and extracted using solvent based processes which degrades and diminishes the potency.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds (Chia Salvia Hispanica) were a staple food source for the ancient Aztecs and Mayans. Chia seeds are gluten free, cholesterol free, low GI and easily digested. Chia seeds are energizing -not only do chia seeds give you a boost of energy that lasts, they also provide stamina and endurance. A single tablespoon could sustain Aztec warriors for an entire day due to their ability to retain electrolytes in body fluids.

Apart from being delicious, Chia seeds are nutritious – on top of the fact that chia seeds have more omega-3 than any other natural source, they are loaded with antioxidants, calcium, protein, fibre, and many other vitamins & minerals.

Chia seeds reduce cravings because chia seeds absorb so much water and have high soluble fibre levels, they help release natural, unrefined carbohydrate energy slowly into the bloodstream.

Plus they are a dieters dream as one property of chia seed is that once mixed with water (9 parts water to one part seeds) the soaked seeds (whisk while adding the seeds to avoid lumps – leave for 10 minutes then stir again) form a gel, with a slightly nutty taste, which can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. Add the gel to foods like yogurt, milkshakes, smoothies, sauces or juice, basically what you are doing is “displacing calories” by increasing the volume of a food with a healthy ingredient which is 90% water.

Chia seeds contain:

Essential fatty acids – Omega-3 and Omega-6 – they are the richest plant source of Omega-3 (the vital fats that protect against inflammation—such as arthritis—and heart disease). In fact, they contain more Omega-3 than salmon!

Protein – chia seeds are a source of complete protein, providing all the essential amino acids.

Vitamins – Large amounts of B group Vitamins including riboflavin, niacin, thiamine and trace amounts of all B vitamins.

Calcium – chia seeds have 5 times as much calcium as milk, 2 ounces (100 grams) of chia seeds contain 600mg of calcium, boron and fibre.

Convenient and versatile chia seeds can be eaten chia seeds straight from the bag, mixed with your favourite drinks, added to your cereal or salad, and just about anything else. Plus Chia seeds last for years!
