Cacao

Seeds from the cacao tree has been used for centuries in Mesoamerica, and is currently used to make chocolate in modern times. The Latin name for cocoa—Theobroma—literally means, “food of the gods.” This valuable crop played an important role in many ancient South American cultures.

The cacao bean has always been and will always be nature’s number-one weight loss and high-energy food.

The health benefits of Cacao:

  • Cacao contains the highest concentration of antioxidants of any food in the world.  High levels of antioxidants protect the body from a buildup of free radicals from sun exposure, pollution, cigarette smoking, etc., which may damage healthy body tissue giving rise to cancer and cardiovascular disease.

  • Cacao is number one source of magnesium, one of the great alkaline minerals and an excellent source of zinc.

  • Cacao contains significant quantities of the essential amino acid tryptophan, a powerful mood-enhancing nutrient.

  • Cacao is rich in the tryptamine serotonin. Serotonin helps us build up our “stress-defense shield.” If serotonin levels are high, the world could be collapsing and we would still feel good. If serotonin levels are low, all could be well, but we would still feel like hell.

  • Flavanols, theobromine, and other components found in cacao may lower blood pressure and enhance circulation by promoting dilation, strength, and health of blood vessels

  • A sufficient amount of fiber delivered with each serving of cacao supports digestion while cacao stimulates the body’s production of digestive enzymes.

  • A cousin to caffeine, cacao can give the brain a gentle boost without the shakiness and headaches. About 2 ounces of dark chocolate contains 27 mg of caffeine, while a cup of regular coffee contains 200 mg.

 

Coconut

The coconut tree is a member of the family Arecaceae. It is the only accepted species in the genus Cocos. The term coconut can refer to the entire coconut palm, the seed, or the fruit, which, botanically, is a drupe, not a nut. Coconut is a very versatile and indispensable food item for most people under the tropical belt. Each part of the coconut is used. Because of this, coconuts are called the “Tree of Life” and can produce drinks, fiber, food, fuel, utensils, musical instruments, and much more.

The health benefits of coconut:

  • A medium-size nut carrying 400g edible meat and some 30-150 ml of water, which may provide almost all of the daily-required essential minerals, vitamins, and energy of an average-sized individual. 

  • Coconut improves digestion and absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, minerals and amino acids.

  • They contain healthy antiviral, antifungal, and antimicrobial saturated fatty acids, helping to naturally fight off viruses, bacteria, and fungal overgrowth.

  • Coconut contains powerful antioxidants in the form of raw saturated fats and oils. Coconut oil contains the most lauric acid (a powerful antiviral substance) of any plant source.

  • Coconut water is a very refreshing drink to beat tropical summer thirst. The juice is packed with simple sugars, electrolytes, minerals, and bioactive compounds such as cytokinin, and enzymes such as acid phosphatase, catalase, dehydrogenase, peroxidase, polymerases, etc. Together, these enzymes aid in digestion and metabolism. 

  • Research studies suggest that cytokinins (e.g., kinetin and trans-zeatin) in coconut water demonstrate significant anti-aging, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-thrombotic effects.

  • Coconut is also a very good source of B-complex vitamins such as folates, riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, and pyridoxine. These vitamins are essential in the sense that body requires them from external sources to replenish.

  • Coconut meat and water contain a very good amount of potassium. 100 g of fresh meat contains 356 mg% or 7.5% of daily-required levels of potassium.

The health benefits of maca:

  • Maca, like the goji berry, reishi mushroom, asparagus root, rhodiola, ginseng, AFA algae, and other superfoods and superherbs, is a powerful adaptogen, which means it has the ability to balance and stabilize the body’s glandular-hormonal system, nervous system, cardiovascular system, and musculature.

  • Maca is known to help us effectively deal with stresses of all types. Because maca increases blood oxygen content it helps to alleviate the environmental stress of altitude sickness (the volume of oxygen at 18,000 feet elevation is typically half of what it is at sea level). When used along with coca tea, nearly all symptoms of altitude sickness can be alleviated in less than an hour.

  • Peruvian biologist Gloria Chacon de Popovici, PhD, suggests that maca acts on the hypothalamus and pituitary glands as well as the adrenals. She has theorized that by activating these endocrine glands, maca is able to increase energy, vitality, and libido. 

  • Other uses for maca have also shown promising benefits to health such as relief of fatigue and the reduction of menopausal symptoms in women.

  • For both men and women alike, skin problems such as acne have been drastically improved with the use of maca.

  • Maca has been shown to stimulate thyroid function, most likely due to its hormone balancing properties. Maca also contains iodine, which can positively affect thyroid function.

Matcha

Matcha is created from grinding young green tea leaves into a fine powder. Green tea is made from Camellia sinensis leaves that have undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Green tea originated in China, but its production has spread to many countries in Asia.

Tea consumption has its legendary origins in China dating back to over 4,000 years ago, making it the oldest herbal tea known.

The consumption of matcha originated in Japan centuries ago. By ingesting the whole tea leaves as matcha, the nutrients from the entire leaf are retained and concentrated; one cup of matcha is equal to ten cups of brewed green tea in terms of nutritional content. 

Green tea not only provides peace and serenity, it can actually make you healthier and fight diseases. It can even help with weight loss.

The health benefits of matcha include:

  • One of the primary reasons for the popularity and consumption of all kinds of tea by human civilizations is its stimulating effect. This effect is due to the caffeine and tannins present within the tea leaves.

  • L-theanine is an amino acid naturally found in tea leaves. It is this substance that is thought to provide a relaxing and tranquilizing effect and be a great benefit to tea drinkers. It also aids in concentration and focus.

  • Matcha has been shown to improve blood flow and lower cholesterol. Many studies found that matcha can help prevent a range of heart-related issues.

  • Matcha seems to help keep blood sugar stable in people with diabetes.

  • Is very rich in antioxidants. The catechin polyphenols present in green tea are hugely responsible for the antioxidizing effects.

  • Antiviral and antibacterial. Tea catechins are strong antibacterial and antiviral agents, which make them effective for treating everything from influenza to cancer.

  • Boosts the strength of the immune system.

  • Also helps people lose weight by enhancing the rate of metabolism, thereby promoting a faster consumption of the fat storage of the body.

  • Excellent stamina and endurance booster. 


 

Spirulina

Spirulina are freshwater-growing, alkaline-environment, microscopic blue-green algae that have been living on the planet since the appearance of life on Earth. 

The name "spirulina" is derived from the Latin word for "helix" or "spiral"; denoting the physical configuration of the organism when it forms swirling, microscopic strands. Spirulina is being developed as the "food of the future" because of its amazing ability to synthesize high-quality concentrated food more efficiently than any other algae.

Turmeric

Turmeric is an ancient root that has been used for its healing properties for centuries. Turmeric comes from the rhizome (rootstock) of the Curcuma longa plant. To manufacture it, the roots of the plant are boiled, dried and then ground into a powder. Traditionally used in Chinese and Indian folk medicine, turmeric has amazing benefits and is able to treat a wide range of illnesses.

The health benefits of turmeric:

  • Turmeric can help prevent prostate cancer, stop the growth of existing prostate cancer and even destroy cancer cells

  • The anti-inflammatory properties in turmeric are great for treating both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, turmeric’s antioxidant property destroys free radicals in the body that damage body cells.

  • Turmeric can be used in the treatment of diabetes by helping to moderate insulin levels. It also improves glucose control and increases the effect of medications used to treat diabetes. Another significant benefit is turmeric’s effectiveness in helping reduce insulin resistance, which may prevent the onset of type-2 diabetes. However, when combined with strong medications, turmeric can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). It is best to consult a healthcare professional before taking turmeric capsules.

  • Research has proven that simply using turmeric as a food seasoning can reduce serum cholesterol levels. It is a known fact that high cholesterol can lead to other serious health problems. Maintaining a proper cholesterol level can prevent many cardiovascular diseases.

  • Turmeric contains a substance known as lipopolysaccharide, which helps stimulate the body’s immune system. Its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agents also help strengthen the immune system. A strong immune system lessens the chance of suffering from colds, flu and coughs. If you do get a cold, a cough or the flu, you can feel better sooner by mixing one teaspoon of turmeric powder in a glass of warm milk and drinking it once daily.

  • Brain inflammation is suspected to be one of the leading causes of cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. Turmeric supports overall brain health by aiding in the removal of plaque build-up in the brain and improving the flow of oxygen. This can also prevent or slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

  • Turmeric is a kind of natural liver detoxifier. The liver detoxifies the blood through the production of enzymes and turmeric increases production of these vital enzymes. These vital enzymes break down and reduce toxins in the body.
