I was a vegetarian for 18 years before I discovered first spirulina, then chlorella. These are the best foods for providing protein to the body. When I added those foods to my diet I understood that I didn’t need to consume meat, fish, eggs or dairy. I was getting the protein from spirulina and chlorella. I still love dairy but I avoid it. A plant-based, vegan diet is the healthiest diet. Oh, and don’t cooked any of the plants if you want to truly be healthy.
When you hear about a “study” that claims a food that you generally feel is not healthiest food on the market, such as beef or eggs, or perhaps bread, then you should be suspicious. The studies that seem to fly in the face of everything you know were likely funded by the industry that produces them.
At least 10 peer-reviewed studies about pasta published since 2008 were either fundeddirectly by Barilla or, like the one published this month, were carried out by scientists who have had financial ties to the company, which reported sales of 3.4 billion euros ($4.2 billion) in 2016. For two years, Barilla has publicized some of these studies, plus others favorable to its product, on its website with taglines like “Eat Smart Be Smart…With Pasta” and “More Evidence Pasta Is Good For You.” And the company hired the large public relations firm Edelman to push the latest study’s findings to journalists. – Buzz Feed
Incredible. I always liked pasta, but a superfood? Not really.
A woman went on Shark Tank to pitch chlorella and spirulina. I really wish she had offered her pitch a little differently because she might had actually been successful at convincing the sharks that wasn’t “just a marketing company”. In fact, she was trying to introduce them to the world’s two most powerful wholefoods on the planet. She made a few mistakes and I wanted to point them out. Maybe they’ll give her a opportunity to try again!
If you add chlorella and/or spirulina to your diet and take 8 – 10 grams per day you will get all the protein you need and you will be successful and healthy. Just be sure you don’t eat junk food. I have seen so many people become vegetarian and all they do is stop eating meat. They still eat chips, junk food, fast food, etc and they they don’t get healthier because health is about eating the right foods and not eating garbage foods. Make sure to include salads and fresh fruit in your diet along with chlorella and spirulina. You’ll be fine.
I sometimes put on a lab coat and a stethoscope when I do my videos, but it’s all in jest. I wear them as props and to poke fun at doctors who wear them in their videos as a way to give themselves authority. They are medical doctors so “they know and you don’t.” They are often arrogant and dismissive to their patients.
I don’t call myself a physician as apparently many Naturopathic Doctors I have learned. There is something called a Naturopathic Physician in states such as California, but not in Colorado. I like being called a doctor, but I don’t want to be confused with someone thinking I’m a medical doctor or any part of the medical establishment. I don’t now anything about medicine or pharmaceuticals – nothing. I know about nature and how to be healthy naturally.
I went to The Trinity School of Natural Health, which is accredited by the American Naturopathic Medical Accreditation Board, in Las Vegas, NV. The American Naturopathic Medical Certification Board is the division that offers the board certification test.
My only wish is that medical doctors would stop pretending they know something about diet and nutrition since they have absolutely NO training it whatsoever. I will not talk about what I don’t know anything about, and medical doctors can do the same.
This is certainly depend on which testosterone supplement you were taking. Maintaining proper testosterone levels in the body is one of the keys to longevity. I take one often called Tongkat Ali, or Long Jack, which is a tree root from Malaysia. The active ingredient is Eurycome. Tongkat Ali is extremely effective at increasing testosterone in the body.
Yes. If it’s well sealed, vacuum packed, then it will last about 3 years. After that, the chlorophyll breaks down the and the spirulina “turns blue”. Actually, the green chlorophyll has disappeared. What you see then is the phycocyanin – a blue antioxidant that is unique to spirulina. It is still okay to consume, it’s just not as nutritious as it once was.
That’s the best question of them all. They continue to eat meat because they like the taste and they are under the mistaken impression that it’s good for them. They eat meat – even when they learn it is bad for their health – out of habit. They can’t imagine a meal without a piece of meat sitting in the center of the plate. What you put into your body is 100% physiological – all in your mind.
I don’t eat curried foods because I didn’t grow up in India. I grew up on a standard meat and potato American diet. How I became healthy was by training myself to eat in a different way. Healthy really comes down to lifestyle changes and learning what foods are actually healthy (raw fruits & vegetables) and then having the resolve to only eat those foods.
