Optimal nutritional intake is essential to achieving vibrant health. I use advanced intercellular nutritional testing in my practice—not serum blood testing which is not very accurate—and I have seen first-hand that even a diet of whole, uncooked, and minimally processed organic food does not always supply sufficient amounts of key nutrients.
At least 80% of the people that I do nutritional testing for are deficient in magnesium. This essential mineral is needed by the human body for at least 2,000 out of the about 3,000 known metabolic enzyme functions.
Medical doctors use serum blood testing when checking magnesium status. Current research now proves that the body needs to lose at least 20% of its total magnesium content before a serum blood test will even show that magnesium is below the normal level. That means that you may be experiencing the many symptoms of low magnesium even when your doctor has given you a blood test and told you that your magnesium level is good.
Magnesium is necessary for our bodies to manufacture insulin and for insulin receptors to function optimally. Symptoms of low magnesium may include one or more of the following: muscle twitching, leg cramps, tight muscles in the neck or other areas in the body, insomnia, headaches, constipation, low energy, high blood pressure, anxiety, weak bones, etc. Different people experience different symptoms.
Green plant foods are one of the best sources of easily absorbed magnesium. Our body uses red blood cells to carry oxygen to every cell in our bodies. It is vital to health and well-being that we keep our red cells functioning properly. Chlorophyll, the green blood of plants, is very similar to our own red blood cells, and by consuming chlorophyll we nourish our red blood cells as well as practically every other tissue in our bodies!
In this day and age, it is more important than ever to eat low on the food chain. This is because numerous toxins and carcinogens such as PCBs, dioxin, and countless other chemicals bio-accumulate and are concentrated in food higher up the food chain.
When sunlight caresses green plants, known as photosynthesis, amino acids, carbohydrates, and fats are created to be stored in that plant along with numerous other phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Concentrated green plant foods, such as the extracts of young shoots of plants commonly used to make green superfood powders, contain an outstanding variety of essential nutrients in an easy to absorb form. It’s like Nature’s own alkalizing multivitamin! Eating green plant foods may be the single most important nutritional factor of the modern age.
My recommendation for easy to absorb nutrition is simple: raw, green superfood powders. They can be easily stored, mixed with liquid in seconds, and consumed on the go! My personal favorite is Ormus Supergreens from Sunwarrior. These greens taste great and make me feel…super!
