Would you like to give your body a “kick start” and allow the enzymes in fresh “Live” food to act and keep the body’s systems working at premium levels.
Raw fresh fruits should be eaten slowly and chewed many times to release beneficial enzymes.
When food is cooked, important enzymes are destroyed, so eating it raw, or juicing if for drinking immediately, ensures optimum levels of nutrients. Evidence suggests that a diet made up of 50% raw fruit can lengthen the life span. In fact, age researchers claim that a diet with 70% raw fruit and vegetables may actually begin to reverse the aging process: the body becomes leaner; wrinkles smoother and all-important brain function improves considerably.
Although all fruits are good, some are particularly potent anti agers. Choose organic fruits where possible, as they are free from pesticides- and they taste better.
APPLES: Excellent detoxifiers with antiseptic qualities, which strengthen the immune system. Apples also contain pectin, which binds heavy metals such as lead mercury and carries them out of the body.
KIWI FRUIT: Containing Double the vitamin C of oranges, twice as much vitamin E as an avocado, and a rich store of potassium, kiwis are wonderful.
BERRIES: Blackberries, blueberries, blackcurrants and black grapes contain phytochemicals known as flavonoids, potent antioxidants that protect against damage caused by free radicals.
LEMONS: Very effective at flushing toxins from the system.
DATES AND FIGS: Rich in calcium, iron and potassium, these are also good for digestion.
