What are the most powerful superfoods?
Experts say there are substances that are effective at counteracting the effects of ageing. The following Superfoods are of particular interest in regard to rejuvenation and youthfulness...
CAROTENES are naturally occurring organic substances that convert into vitamin A. The best known are the beta-carotenes that are powerful antioxidants.

What Are The Most
Your search for health may lead you to those few herbs and minerals that can give special help. In fact, some have been designated as miraculous...
Goldenseal is a universal herb as it helps the whole body. It is believed to correct the cause of... colds, flu, chills, rashes, sore throat, burns, constipation, aids digestion, is a detoxifier, heals wounds, toughens flabby tissue and fights infections and fevers. But long-term use is not recommended as it drains the body of B1, B6 & B12 vitamins. If used for more than 5-6 days take extra B and C vitamins.
Drinking raw red potato juice can have miraculous effects as it contains important enzymes and vitamin C. It should be consumed within 15mins of juicing as it loses its effectiveness very quickly. Use ONLY red potatoes as the brown ones contain an anti proteoletic enzyme which inhibits protein digestion and causes constipation, headache, stomach cramps etc.
Pimiento is a
sweet pepper often grown in Italy. It contain rich sources of substances required by the body to make connective tissue (collagen)... vit C, vit A, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, chromium, amino acids, flavones, citrines and bioflavonoids. It also contains hormones to maintain the heart.
Kelp is a common seaweed which contains every vital mineral needed for the health of the body... aluminium, barium, bismuth, boron, calcium, chlorine, chromium, cobalt, copper, gallium, iodine, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorus, potassium, silicon, silver, sodium, strontium, sulpher, tin, titanium, vanadium, zirconium etc. Excellent for relieving rickets, anaemia, constipation, stomach trouble, headache, kidney disorders, eczema, neuritis, asthma and low vitality.
Alfalfa is a rich source of proteins, minerals and vitamins, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and calcium, and organic salts. It helps to balance blood pressure, softens hard arteries, rich in
iron to help anaemia, calcium prevents dental problems. The green leaf contains eight essential enzymes. It assists in the digestion of protein, fat, starch and sugar.
Spearmint regulates the PH balance better than any other substance. If your body is too alkaline or acid spearmint can correct it. It works on the endocrine gland system to regulate, modify and stabilise the functions of the glands. it supplies important minerals that sooth the nerves. The oil has antibiotic and pain-relieving qualities that help digestion.
