Ten Top Supplements by Jeff Goodman

I thought this was a very good article because most of the recommended supplements are whole foods.I don't use all of them right now but have used some from time to time. I would also add raw cacao nibs and wheat grass juice to the following.

The supplements that Jeff Goodman will talk about in this article are all natural substances that are not man made in a laboratory. They have been found to be very effective for creating vibrant health.

1.Goji Berries : Goji Berries contain 18 amino acids,Goji Berries are 15% protein, which is more protein than whole wheat. Goji Berries contain 21 essential minerals, among them iron for the blood, zinc for cell repair and reproductive health, and selenium, which works with vitamin E as an antioxidant.The real power of the Goji berry seems to be in the special sugars that are only produced by this little red berry. These sugars, called polysaccharides, are essential for the best working of your immune system.Goji Berries strengthen the immune system. Goji Berries promote cardiovascular health by normalizing blood pressure. Goji Berries nourish the blood. This prevents and can even reverse anemia. Goji Berries increase the production of white blood cells. You need these to fight all kinds of infections.Goji Berries reduce inflammation. Inflammation is an important part of most chronic diseases. Reducing inflammation reduces pain.most need it. Goji Berries strengthen the liver. You need your liver more than ever these days because it saves you from bad food, bad environmental toxins and just plain having a bad day.

2. Bee Pollen: Bee Pollen is often referred to as nature's most complete food. Human consumption of Bee Pollen is praised in the Bible, other religious books, and ancient Egyptian and Chinese texts.Bee Pollen is not found in the everyday diet. It is found in nutritional supplements. Bee Pollen has been used to enhance energy, memory and performance. Bee pollen is also taken to prevent hay fever. People believe that ingesting local bee pollen will help to build resistance to the pollen they are allergic to.Cultures throughout the world use Bee Pollen in a surprising number of applications: for improving endurance and vitality, extending longevity, aiding recovery from chronic illness, adding weight during convalescence, reducing cravings and addictions, regulating the intestines, building new blood, preventing infectious diseases such as the cold and flue since Bee pollen has antibiotic type properties and helping overcome retardation and other developmental problems in children. Bee Pollen is thought to protect against radiation and to have anti-cancer qualities.Nutritional value of bee pollen: Bee Pollen is a whole food supplement that contains at least 130 substances of nutritional significance. Bee Pollen is composed of about 50% carbohydrates, rich in fatty acids, almost all known minerals, amino acids, enzymes, trace elements, vitamins like B complex, A,C,D,E, beta carotene.Benefits of Bee Pollen: Bee Pollen in daily routine prevents nutritional imbalance, deficiencies, accumulation of toxins in the body and helps strengthen the immune system and prevent disease.

3.Natto : Natto is a traditional Japanese food and is commonly eaten for breakfast in Japan. Since natto is made from soybeans fermented by natto bacillus, it is sticky and has strong smell and taste. It is an acquired taste, when I first tried it I didn't like it but now I eat it every day and like it. It is inexpensive to buy Natto but the active ingredient," Nattokinase" is expensive.Health Benefits of Eating Natto: Natto is a good source of protein and vitamin B2, which keeps your skin young. Natto is also rich in vitamin K2, which is helpful in preventing osteoprosis. Further, a fibrinolytic enzyme found in natto is called nattokinase. Nattokinase is reported to reduce and prevent blood clot. So, eating natto can prevent heart attacks and strokes.Dr. Martin Milner of the Center for Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon and Dr. Kouhei Makise of the Imadeqawa Makise Clinica in Kyoto, Japan were able to launch a joint research project on nattokinase and write an extensive paper on their findings. "In all my years of research as a professor of cardiovascular and pulmonary medicine, natto and nattokinase represents the most exciting new development in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular related diseases," Dr. Milner said. "We have finally found a potent natural agent that can thin and dissolve clots effectively, with relative safety and without side effects."Traditionaly in Japan, Natto has been consumed not only for cardiovascular support, but also to lower blood pressure. In recent years, this traditional belief has been confirmed by several clinical trials.I highly recommend Eating Natto daily or if you can't get past the taste and smell, use the Nattokinase capsules.

4.Flax Seed/Fax Oil: Flax seed can be ground fresh each day and eaten with oatmeal or cereal. Flax Seed Oil contains omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids, B vitamins, potassium, lecithin, magnesium, fiber, protein, and zinc and also provides approximately 50% more omega-3 oils than what you could get from taking fish oil, minus that horrible "fishy" after taste.Here are a few of the benefits of using flax and flax oil: Research shows low incidence of breast cancer and colon cancer in populations that have high amounts of lignan in their diet. Flax is 100 times richer in lignan than most whole grains.Studies show that Omega-3 fatty acids help lower cholesterol and blood triglycerides, and prevent clots in arteries, which may result in strokes, heart attacks and thromboses.Helps protect the body against high blood pressure, inflammation, water retention, sticky platelets and lowered immune function. Shortens recovery time for fatigued muscles after exertion. Increases the body's production of energy and also increases stamina. Accelerates the healing of sprains and bruises.

5.Zeolite : Liquid Cellular Zeolite is a breakthrough supplement that works at the cellular level by trapping heavy metals and toxins and safely removing them from the body.The actual Clinoptilolite Zeolite molecule is shaped like a honey-comb and carries a natural negative (-) charge. When this type of Zeolite is ingested into the body all of the positively charged (+) heavy metals, toxins, and harmful chemicals bond with the zeolite and are flushed out through the urine within 6-8 hours.

6. Bentonite : Liquid bentonite for elimination.Taken internally, liquid bentonite supports the intestinal system in the elimination of toxins. Liquid bentonite is inert which means it passes through the body undigested.Bentonite clay is made up of a high number of tiny platelets, with negative electrical charges on their flat surfaces and positive charges on their edges.When bentonite clay absorbs water and swells up, it is stretched open like a highly porous sponge. Toxins are drawn into these spaces through electrical attraction and bound. In fact, according to the Canadian Journal of Microbiology (2), bentonite clay can reportedly absorb pathogenic viruses, as well as herbicides and pesticides. The bentonite is eventually eliminated from the body with the toxins bound to its multiple surfaces.

7.Chlorella : Chlorella is a special algae called Pyrenoidosa that grows in fresh water and has the highest content of chlorophyll (28.9g/kg) of any known plant on earth. It is extremely high in enzymes, vitamins and minerals, including the full vitamin-B Complex. It has been shown to activate your limited number of macrophages that scavenge and digest cancer cells, foreign proteins and chemicals. This life form emerged over 2.5 billion years ago, and was the first form of plant with a well-defined nucleus.Chlorella is natural and the nutrients in it are bio-chelated, which means they are naturally wrapped in amino acids so the body will more readily take them in. Typical supplements, meanwhile, are nothing more than an amalgam of concentrates and extracts that have been artificially stitched together because -- at least on paper -- they look like they should provide balanced nutrition. Chlorella's nutrients are naturally balanced and won't accumulate in your body and become toxic -- yet another reason they are superior to any man-made vitamin supplement.

8.Turmeric : Turmeric is one of nature's most powerful healers. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. Tumeric has been used for over 2500 years in India, where it was most likely first used as a dye.Here are some reasons to add turmeric to your diet:It is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns.When combined with cauliflower, it has shown to prevent prostate cancer and stop the growth of existing prostate cancer.Prevented breast cancer from spreading to the lungs in mice.

Fresh powdered ginger should be taken three times a day one fourth to one half of a teaspoon. Fresh ginger root can be eaten every four hours but no more than three times a day and should be approximately one half inch and peeled. Ginger tea which now comes prepackaged can be taken several times a day. Crystallized ginger can be taken twice a day.

10. Beet Juice crystals : Red beet juice has been an important part of human nutrition for centuries In modern times, French nutritionists have tested the value of beet juice, using diets that include up to 6 pints of beet juice daily. Often, beet juice is used in combination with other juices. In fact, three juices beet juice, carrot juice, and green juice form the central trio in most juicing programs.
