See our privacy policy. For many years I and others have consumed flaxseeds since it is high in omega-3 fatty acids. This helps lubricate the brain and arteries helping to prevent depression, heart attacks and strokes. Chia seeds have more omega-3 fatty acids than flaxseeds. Flaxseeds cannot be digested unless they are milled. But once this is done then they are subject to going rancid soon. This is not the case with chia seeds.

You can add chia seeds to foods (like you do with flaxseed meal) or you can put 2 teaspoons of chia seeds in a glass of water and let sit for 20 minutes. Literature says that it helps slow the aging of the brain and arteries, prevents long term memory loss, and increases cardiovascular health. It has 5 times the calcium in whole milk, 3 times the antioxidants in blueberries, 15 times the magnesium in broccoli, more potassium than bananas and more iron than spinach.

Very Latest News- January, 22, 2009

They have just done a huge amount of studies on ecklonia cava extract (ECE). It is an extract of a brown seaweed by that name. It dissolves blood clots and lowers blood pressure better than drugs. In a controlled scientific study, it cut blood pressure levels by 40 points in 12 days-- from 200 mmHg to 160.

It improves memory by increasing the activity of neurotransmitters responsible for learning and memory. It scours out amyloid plaques linked to Alzheimer's. It reduces cholesterol better than green tea. In one study it scored higher than Viagra® in improving orgasmic function. It improves circulation by regenerating cells that make up the critical inner lining of your blood vessels keeping the arterial wall dilated and relaxed. It helps people get off diabetic meds.

It stimulates your body to burn more fat by increasing muscle mass. Dr. Haengwoo Lee and his team of M.D.'s and Ph.D.'s have spent over thirty million dollars on research, from in vitro to animal and human studies on ECE (ecklonia cava extract). Much of the work was done in Korea, and some at the University of Washington. See this site for more on this.

In the Swanson website below they now have their own brand of ecklonia cava extract with high quality and lowest price. They also sell other brands of it at below retail cost. They have a great deal of buying power since they sell a lot of supplements. They have been in business since 1969 (42 years).

I am not a big fan of vitamin/mineral supplements. It has been shown that most tablets pass through your digestive tract undigested. I told someone, who was a distributor for a company that sold vitamin/mineral supplements, that taking too many can cause a toxic overdose, that is if it is digested. She said that it is because of the fillers and preservatives. I then told her that the vitamins were the most dangerous things in supplements.

The number one cause of child poisonings in the U.S.A. is iron supplements. They make them as brightly colored pills which cause children to eat them. Frederic Vagnini, MD, assistant clinical professor at Weill Cornell Medical College says (page 41 in Bottom Line Yearbook 2008), "Never take a supplement for iron without consulting your physician-- excess iron can accumulate in your major organs and cause severe damage."

Vitamin A and D are not water soluble so they cannot be urinated out. Too much of either one can cause death by liver failure (called hypervitaminosa A and hypervitaminosa D). The liver tries to filter out the toxic things from what you eat. Vitamins and minerals are not foods. People are designed to eat foods.

The FDA does not allow a supplement to contain more than 99 mg of potassium, a mineral. If you go to a nutritionist doctor, they will never give you more than 200 mg of potassium since they know that you may need to be rushed to a hospital. Yet it is okay to eat 2 avocadoes which contain 2,400 mg of potassium, 3 potatoes that have 2,100 mg of potassium or 3 bananas that contain 1,200 mg of potassium. The FDA (see Home Page under water weight for link to this) says to eat more potassium and less sodium.

So it is better to get your vitamins and minerals from foods. You are not what you eat, but what you assimilate. This is easy with stores that sell lots of foods. Vitamins and minerals are chemicals that cost pennies to make. Even ones extracted from foods are extracted with chemical reactions. Plant foods contain thousands of phytochemicals that are great for health. One of these phytochemicals is lycopene which is good for your arteries and preventing cancer. It is the red color in watermelon, tomatoes and red grapefruit.

Greens Drinks Powders

There are many different greens powder drinks and I highly recommend them. This is the fastest growing area of nutrition. Most health enthusiasts use these green drinks instead of vitamin/mineral supplements WHICH ARE NOT FOODS. The Kevin Trudeau weight loss cure protocol from The Weight Loss Cure They Don't Want You to Know About  requires you to use one. You mix them in diluted juice and drink them. For more on this protocol see the Home Page. A vitamin pill may contain about half a gram whereas with these drinks, you drink at least 20 times that amount of the powder (10 grams). Unlike vitamin/mineral supplements, most people can feel a difference from using them. 

The New York Times Bestseller, Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You to Know About by Kevin Trudeau (© 2004) says

"Do not take vitamins....It is true that you are most assuredly deficient in vitamins and minerals. The best way to correct this deficiency is by juicing. The second best way is to take whole food supplements. These are not vitamin and mineral pills. Whole food supplements simply take organically produced vegetables and fruits and concentrate them into a convenient tablet [the powder is much cheaper] that you can take."

I just came across a testimonial in a magazine. It is by a woman who lost 90 pounds in 90 days. It has before and after pictures and she looked great in the after picture. She said "A lifetime of poor choices left me tipping the scales at 240 pounds. I was sick and bedridden with a variety of symptoms for 2 months. I began drinking 5 to 6 greens drinks a day. [That sounds excessive to me but I guess being 90 pounds overweight is excessive.] The more greens I drank, the stronger I felt and my health challenges, including migraines and vertigo, disappeared. Four years later I've kept all the weight off." A main ingredient in greens drinks is spirulina. It is an appetite suppressant. But I feel that it is really an appetite satisfier due to its very high nutrient profile.

These green drinks contain superfoods. Spirulina is a fresh water sea plant (phytoplankton or algae). Some will say that spirulina is the most nutrient dense superfood since it contains more calcium than milk, more protein than meat or soybeans, more beta-carotene than carrots, more vitamin E than wheat germ, more iron than spinach, more omega-3 fatty acids than fish and more vitamin B-12 than liver. Others argue that barley grass, wheat grass or chlorella are the best superfoods. So they put all of them in the greens drinks and more things, like some have pro-biotics (beneficial bacteria), herbs, and healthy vegetables like broccoli-- all whole foods.

The spirulina and chlorella in the greens drinks contain omega-3 essential fatty acids (see below) since they are algae. Nicholas Perricone, MD wrote The Wrinkle Cure. In his most recent book (a # 1 NY Times bestseller), The Perricone Promise: Look Younger, Live Longer in Three Easy Steps (© 2004), he recommends consuming spirulina, chlorella, wheat grass and barley grass. It also recommends consuming herbs, which are whole foods, but he does not recommend a multi-vitamin or any vitamins.

Some of these taste great mixed with diluted juice. Many times after someone tries it for the first time, they have a strong craving for another glass of it. That means that your body really needs it, so drink another one. This is fine since they are foods, not vitamins or minerals which cost pennies to make. Most of them avoid adding any vitamins or minerals for people who know that they are not foods. You can add carrot juice powder to the above (like I do) to make it taste better and more balanced and get that extra nutrition. Montel Williams has multiple sclerosis and depression but takes no medication. He does drink greens drinks. Mehmet Oz, M.D., author of YOU: the Owners Manual, had Oprah Winfrey try his greens drink.

I also add to mine a powder with fruits and vegetables. It has strawberries, apple flakes, carrot, raspberry, tomato, red bell pepper, okra, kale, blueberry, cranberry, grape, cherry, bilberry, beet and more. Berries are very healthy but they are expensive. Many greens drinks have lecithin as the main ingredient. It is very cheap so they can charge less for it. Even though it is cheap, it is great for the cardiovascular system. You can buy a greens drink with lecithin or get one without it and buy it separately. It costs about $20 for a pound. Only buy the lecithin that says on it non-GMO (not genetically modified). Adding a half of banana to the greens drink makes it taste better plus they are a great source of potassium.

Lecithin has been promoted for cardiovascular health for decades. It comes from soybeans but is also in cabbage, cauliflower, green beans, chickpeas, lentils, corn, split peas and grains. I just came across this. A guy had high blood pressure. The doctor said that he needed surgery to have the plaque stripped from the arteries in his neck. It would cost $10,000 but the machine was down and he had to wait. At a health food store they told him to try lecithin. He took 2 tablespoons a day. When he returned to the doctor, the nurse re-examined him and said that he did not need the surgery since the plaque in his arteries was gone.

What causes heart attacks and strokes is plaque on your artery walls. They make the walls hard and can block the blood flow. The plaque contains oxidized cholesterol. Reducing cholesterol does not remove the plaque. Cholesterol contains lecithin. The good cholesterol (HDL) contains more lecithin than the bad cholesterol (LDL). The more good cholesterol, the better. When enough lecithin is in the cholesterol, it becomes soluble and it dissolves back into your blood and washes away. Although the plaque forms to protect the artery walls. Things that attack the artery walls are the chlorine and fluoride in tap water and homogenized milk. See the web page on pure water to learn how to purify your tap water.

Here is what one company says about their greens drink:

"Vitamineral Green is an organic, whole food superfood combination. Unlike traditional multi-vitamin/mineral products, it is totally non-toxic, exceptionally absorbable (not excreted as expensive yellow urine, does not settle out as toxic deposits in the body), and is truly effective. It also contains thousands of phytonutrients [phytochemicals] and a plethora of other complex, synergistically bound, organic nutrients. This product is "manufactured" by Mother Nature herself; not a chemist in an isolation factory. There are absolutely no synthetics or isolated nutrients whatsoever in Vitamineral Green. Unlike incomplete, regular multi-vitamin/mineral products, these nutrients are exactly as they occur naturally in whole plant foods, because they are still in whole plant foods! They are fully recognizable and absorbable with NO toxicity [like vitamins and minerals]!"

Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids

 Here are other nutrients you should make sure to get especially if you are a vegetarian or vegan that eats no animal products. One important nutrient that people do not get enough of is omega-3 essential fatty acid. These healthy fats lubricate the brain, arteries and skin. It helps people with depression, prevents heart attacks and strokes and helps with skin problems. The President of the U.S.A. (George W Bush) takes it. Low levels of it increase your chance of getting heart attacks or strokes.

People eating plenty of fish like salmon, tuna and sardines get enough omega-3s but are also consuming a lot of mercury since the ocean is so polluted. Fish get them from eating algae. Due to heavy mercury pollution, limit fish and try to avoid the most toxic bigger fish, like tuna (0.35 ppm), and eat smaller fish like sardines (0.016 ppm), salmon (0.014), whitefish (0.069 ppm), trout (freshwater)(0.072 ppm) and flounder (overfished)(0.045 ppm). For more on this see http://gotmercury.org. Fish get their omega-3s from eating algae. Farmed fish that are not fed algae have no omega-3s.

You can get these fish oils but it requires the killing of animals. If you do then make sure that the bottle says "pharmaceutical grade" which is where the pollution has been taken out. You can get omega-3s from flaxseed oil also. I use the milled flaxseeds. These contain lignans which help prevent cancer and the flaxseeds contain a really good fiber for the colon, but the oil is a more concentrated source of omega-3s. I mix them in the above drink but they taste good and you can put them in soup or any dish with a sauce. Flaxseeds are whole foods and cost very little. People used to get plenty of omega-3s from eating a green leaf vegetable called purslane.

The book, More Natural Cures Revealed (© 2006) by Kevin Trudeau says that a magazine about health and healthy lifestyle was being given out to all NBC employees in the Chicago studio. It was telling how flaxseed (linseed) oil was curing breast cancer. Canadian researchers gave muffins with flaxseed oil to women with breast cancer. It was more effective in killing breast cancer cells than any type of radiation or chemotherapy, with no side effects or expensive costs.

Vitamin B-12

This vitamin is not in plant foods as a rule. I say that all rules have exceptions except some. It is in animal foods but eating animal foods causes a greater need for B-12. So many meat eaters and vegetarians have a shortage of this. Spirulina and barley grass  do contain B-12, but it has been found that some people eating these foods still have a shortage of it. So to be sure it is good to take this as a supplement. The best for vitamin B-12 is one that dissolves in your mouth.

The best food source of it may be rotten tea with moldy fungus in it. They sell it in some health food stores. Some call it kombucha mushroom. It is not a mushroom but it is a beneficial bacteria. It produces vitamin B-12, vitamins and other beneficial substances like some beneficial acids. Due to the acids, carbon dioxide and a tiny bit of alcohol, it has a strong taste. It is made in different flavors and the company that makes it is Millennium Products, Inc. The bottle says on the front "Synergy or GTS." The acids in it have a cleansing effect on the body. It comes with healthy juices mixed in like mango, blueberry and lemon. One has spirulina (and another blue-green algae) and chlorella in it. Spirulina contains some omega-3s and vitamin B-12.

The book, Nutrition Almanac (4th edition 1996-- over 2.5 million sold) says "If a person is tired, irritable, nervous, depressed, or even suicidal, suspect a vitamin B deficiency." The greens drinks contain an abundance of B vitamins except for vitamin B-12. This supplement is made differently than the others. Vitamin B-12 is grown on bacteria or mold unlike other vitamins and minerals that are made with (or extracted with) chemicals.

People used to get more vitamin B-12 when they had more bacteria in their diet. There are different forms (analogues) of B-12 and some are inactive. They have not yet tested if the B-12 in the above foods are active or not. A lack of active B-12 can cause too high levels of homocysteine and make the artery walls too thin. This leads to strokes, heart attacks and aneurysms. Meat is not a good source since it causes you to need more. I say "All rules have exceptions except some." That is my rule. Take a supplement of the B-12 that dissolves under the tongue (called sub-lingual). The amount of B-12 that you need is so small that you need about 10 thousand times more of the other vitamins. It is non-toxic so you can take 3 years worth of it in one day. It costs about $5 for a year's supply.

Vitamin D and Sunlight

People do not get enough vitamin D. Without it, the body cannot use the calcium it has. There are no good food sources. For more on this and vitamin B-12 see this site about nutrition for vegetarians and vegans. The best source of it is sunlight. See that previous mentioned website for more on this and osteoporosis. If you think sunlight is bad for you, see that previous site and also see this article about 5 ways to get cancer. The New York Times Bestseller, Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You to Know About by Kevin Trudeau (© 2004) says "Get natural sunlight. Go for a walk in the sun! Your body needs sunlight. Do not use sunglasses or sun screens. Thirty minutes a day, minimum, promotes incredible health benefits....The solar energy from the sun can be very alkalizing to the body; it reduces depression and strengthens your immune....The sun is good for you and its absolutely needed."

Kevin Trudeau says (in Natural Cures) that lack of sunshine and sleep causes people to become overweight. Many who sunbathe a lot have very smooth skin even at an old age. In the movie Something About Mary, an older woman who sunbathes a lot, has very dry and wrinkled skin. But she also smokes a lot. Smoking causes cross linking in the skin which causes skin to age and wrinkle. Research in England shows the highest rates of skin cancer are among those who are under fluorescent lights a lot and spend no time in sunlight. People in Africa do not get skin cancer and the sunlight is much brighter there. African Americans have the highest rate of skin cancer. I know a couple. The husband is a construction worker who is out in the sun a lot, without a shirt on. His wife is a paralegal who spends time in the office. She, not him, got skin cancer. Both of them smoke. See this webpage with Articles including one about sunlight and why they say it is bad for you.

Kevin Trudeau says in Natural Cures,

"In the Natural Cures book I talk about the fact that the sun does not cause skin cancer. The sun is needed for life. If you do not spend time in the sun you will be sick. The sun is vital for health, longevity and to be disease free....Without sunlight you develop diseases including depression, lack of energy, poor sleep, poor digestion, weight gain, arthritis, constipation, bad breath, body odor, cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, ADD, stress, headaches, susceptibility to colds, flus and viral infections, PMS, male erectile dysfunction, loss of sexual desire in women, infertility anxiety and more." 

Calcium, Vitamin D and Vitamin K

People think that osteoporosis is from too little calcium but it is now known that you need a trace mineral like boron, vitamin D, magnesium, vitamin K and other things to bring the calcium into the bones. Whereas most Americans die from stroke or heart attacks and the main mineral involved in the clogging of the arteries is calcium. Vitamin K helps to bring the calcium out of the arteries and into the bones. Vitamin K1 comes from seaweed and dark green leafy vegetables. Vitamin K2 is even better at this and the bacteria in your digestive tract is supposed to create this. But for many people, that system is not working right especially if you have taken anti-biotics. The pro-biotics in some of the greens drinks should help with this. Vitamin K2 is found in butter, chicken egg yolk, cow liver, certain cheeses and fermented soybean products such as natto, but natto has much more of it than the other foods.

There is a good chance ninjas ate this since this comes from the time of feudal Japan. It is fermented soybeans and also contains the enzymes pyrazine and nattokinase which are also good for cardiovascular health. Some people like the taste and some do not but the taste can be acquired. Also there are different brands that taste different and it tastes better mixed with things like rice. The internet says that if you like blue cheese that you will love natto. Maybe soon it will be a popular dish in America like sushi which also comes from Japan. There are now vitamin K2 supplements available.

There are alkaline foods and acid foods. This is based on the effect it has on the body. Fruits high in acids like grapefruits are alkaline. Most people eat lots of acid foods and then the body has to take calcium out of the bones to neutralize this acid. Generally the acid forming foods are animal foods and processed foods made by man. Alkaline foods are plant foods made by nature. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and fungus (mushrooms) are made by nature. Bread, ice cream and cheese and not made by nature. Salt is made by nature but is not a food.

The clogging of the arteries could be caused by a substance in homogenized milk called XO. So it is better to avoid this and get dairy (if you have to have it) from other sources where the milk is not homogenized. Also the hormones in milk is fattening. So you can get organic milk products or even better goat's milk products. Also raw is better so you can get raw goat's milk cheese from Whole Foods. They also have goat's milk yogurt where the milk is not homogenized. It is not raw but has the good bacteria in it.

Trace Minerals

Foods grown on depleted soil are very low in trace minerals. Foods grown on good soil are low in trace minerals. Sea plants (seaweeds) are high in trace minerals since the sea is loaded with trace minerals. Spirulina has a lot more trace minerals than land plants but they may be low in some trace minerals. So it is good to eat a sea plant (seaweed) from the ocean like kelp. They sell granulated kelp in shaker bottles and you shake it on food like salt. It contains salt naturally and you can use it in place of salt since it is a food. It is very high in trace minerals including iodine. Salt and sea salt are not foods. They are not plant or animal, but they are rocks. For more on why salt is bad for you, see the home page under water weight.

Vegetarian/Vegan Concerns plus Sunlight and Osteoporosis tells more about vitamin D,  B-12 and Omega-3s.

See this site for more information on specific greens drinks powders including a delicious chocolate bar that contains one of them, called Greens Plus (also see bottom of this page).

Ingredients in Greens Drinks

In addition to spirulina, the greens drinks contain barley grass. This was created when a scientist searched for the most nutritious and most nutrient dense land plant. He found that people drinking this would get many benefits. Others think that wheat grass is the most nutritious superfood and it is juiced in many fresh juice shops around the country. Then others think that alfalfa grass is the best superfood. Alfalfa leaves are herbs that have many medicinal benefits like helping the liver. So all the above are put in the greens drinks.

Many people have heard that is important to eat your greens. I love the taste of cooked greens. I eat spinach, kale, collard greens, mustard greens, turnip greens, chard and escarole. They taste better with black eye peas are added to them. Five bowls of raw greens make 1 bowl of cooked greens, but the raw greens are healthier since they contain the enzymes that are destroyed (killed) by cooking. But the cooked ones are a more concentrated source of nutrients. These grasses are more nutritious than the above greens. They juice them and dry them into a powder so they are a concentrated source of greens nutrients and they have lots of enzymes since they are not heated. 

They have a lot of chlorophyll in them which have a cleansing effect on the body. The chlorophyll is the blood of the plant and makes it green. A molecule of plant blood is just like your blood except the chlorophyll has an iron atom in the center whereas your blood has a copper atom at the center of the molecule. Some people think that they need to eat meat, since they are made of meat. But all a young cow needs to become a 1,000 pound cow is to eat grass. So when you eat beef, you get the second hand grass. This is the healthier beef but most beef is from cows that are fed grains since it is cheaper.

Some people think that chlorella is the best superfood. It is similar to spirulina. Spirulina is a blue-green phytoplankton or algae whereas chlorella is a green algae. Because of this, chlorella has more chlorophyll than spirulina which itself has more chlorophyll than any land plant. Also spirulina doubles its size in 3 or 4 days but chlorella doubles its size every 2 days. This is due to the chlorella growth factor (CGF) which has a great effect on the health of people. It is very high in nutrients like spirulina so it is also in the greens drinks.

So why do some people think that spirulina is the best? The blue pigment that it is in it, has a very beneficial effect on humans and animals. Spirulina has been used by people and their pets for decades with great results. Millions of people died for us to learn about spirulina. At the end of World War II, the U.S. dropped 2 atom bombs on Japan. The bombs had the code names "Fat Man" and "Little Boy." Both worked and all the people around them were instantly dead. Those that were farther way were dying slowly due to radiation poisoning.

So the Japanese did research to find something that could help and they found spirulina. They found the sodium alginate in the spirulina could help the body deal with the radiation. The Japanese have been using spirulina for decades and they are the country with 2nd longest living people in the world according to written recorded birth records. Okinawa is an island off of Japan and they have the longest living people in the world. I am not saying that the spirulina is the only reason for this. They are health oriented and also use chlorella. They eat a lot of soybeans and they eat less food than Americans.

Some greens drinks contain soy lecithin. It is cheap ingredient so adding it can bring down the cost of the drink. But some do not add it since it is not as healthy as the expensive ingredients like spirulina. The lecithin does help you to have a better memory and it helps cleanse the arteries. If you buy a greens drink without it, you could always buy it separately for very little cost and add it. Each greens drink add other whole foods that they feel are the healthiest to consume.

Spirulina is blue green algae. Blue green algae is technically neither a plant nor an animal. It is cyano-bacteria. It existed before plants and animals. Billions of years ago the only life that existed on the earth was blue green algae and there was no oxygen in the air. The blue green algae put the oxygen in the air. There is blue green algae living in freezing waters where it is too cold for other life to exist and also in volcanic water where it is too hot for any other life to exist. In a movie about Mars, they shoot nuclear warheads into the ice to melt it and then ship blue green algae there to put oxygen into the atmosphere of mars. It is the simplest form of life and you are the most complex form of life.
