Kelp is a sea vegetable that is extraordinarily rich in minerals including calcium and magnesium and iodine, which helps restore thyroid function, improving metabolism and helping one lose weight swiftly. Iodine and other minerals also increase mineral content in all organs, allowing them to function more effectively, throw off toxins more easily and rejuvenate quickly.

Yacon is a distant relative of the sunflower, with edible tubers and leaves. Yacon syrup is fresh pressed from the yacon root and is a healthy, low-glycemic, natural sweetenerfrom the Andean highlands. It is a prebiotic, which means it is great for digestion, helps to regulate friendly intestinal flora and especially improves the growth of certain probiotics, thus stimulating positive colon health.

<Bee pollen> is the sperm of the flowers, grasses, and trees and contains within it all of the plants’ hormones. Bee pollen is a high energy whole food supplying us with almost everything we need. It has one of the highest grades of protein. It is indicated if one needs to heal, being one of the richest food while having very few calories. Bee pollen is rich in lysine, and is structurally made from a very long chain of amino acids that are easily broken down by the body into single amino acids.
BLUE/GREEN ALGAE – SPIRULINA
<Blue green algae> is one of the most complete sources of protein on earth. Proteins act as carrying agents that make metabolites miscible in the body’s fluids. Blue green algae is rich in phycotine pigments, minerals, anti-oxidants, trace elements, magnesium, etc. Magnesium is integral to over 300 detox pathways of the body and helps us relax. Chlorophyll and blood are much like each other; blood is in fact formed in the intestinal villi from the food substrate called monora. Digestion is primary in restoring vitality. A therapeutic dose of enzymes taken with bue green algae can help the body quickly heal an abscess, candida, clear waste in the tissues of the body and improve rheumatic and arthritic conditions, often in a matter of days.
<Honey> is the sexual fluid — the clear nectar of the flowers and plants that is processed by bees. The female worker bees keep busy to maintain their hive, and supply a surplus of honey. They bring the nectar back to the hive and then, in unison the bees vibrate their wings to evaporate the nectar. As the water leaves, the nectar thickens and takes on more its characteristic golden color. Good honey (unpasteurized and unfiltered) has in it some enzymes from the bees, particles of pollen, propolys and other waxes, resins, and bee parts. Honey is high in potassium and in its raw state can help nature heal you. It helps alkalize the body and acts like a diuretic to help reduce water retention. Honey is one of the few foods that supplies us with an amalyase enzyme reserve, a supply beyond what is needed to break the honey down. Raw clover honey is often unmixed with honey from other regions, and thus recommended.
<Lecithin>, combined with flax seed meal, makes a high density lipoprotein which will draw fat and plaque out of the artery walls and melt cholesterol, and generally help with fat metabolism. This combination increases the electric tension of the cell membranes, making them more permeable to oxygen.
FLAX SEED MEAL

COLD PRESSED OILS
A really high quality oil, especially flax and pumpkin seed oil, can enter the system and go to work to create a structure within the body to help clear and clean the plaque that lines the artery walls. Flax oil is rich in essential fatty acids and omega 3 & 6, and helps to rejuvenate the toxic body — 2 or 3 tablespoons per day are recommended. In a short while one begins to notice an amazing change in the elasticity of the skin right throughout the body. To reduce cholesterol and clear lipids and plaque from the body one can combine flax oil with bee pollen as a snack. 100% of those checked are deficient in essential fatty acids, which can also be obtained from shiny seeds and nuts.
