Spirulina: A highly nutritious food derived from plant plankton and a blue-green micro-algae, spirulina contains
18 amino acids, including 8 essential amino acids which the body cannot produce from its own resources and
have to be replaced daily by food. Rich in beta-carotene, vitamin E, vitamin F factor (GLA) and iron, it grows
naturally on alkaline lakes and is used for its high level protein, vitamins and minerals. 100g of spirulina
yields 50-70% protein. Its exceptional levels of vitamin B12 is of special interest to vegetarians, vegans and
non-meat eaters who, unless they study their diets carefully, may be deficient in this important vitamin.
Chlorella: An edible, single-cell marine algae (a sea-moss, sea lettuce), chlorella contains more chlorophyll than
many known foods, more vitamin B12 than liver, along with beta-carotene, polyunsaturated fatty acids and 19 amino
acids (including the 8 essential amino acids). It is also a rich source of calcium, iron, selenium and zinc. It provides
useful detoxification support because it can bind with heavy metals and pesticides (such as PCBs), which can
accumulate in the body. It is also a fibrous material, which means that it supports healthy digestion and overall
digestive tract health. Chlorella's high nutrient content, cleansing actions on the bowel and other elimination organs, as
well as its protection of the liver, help to keep the blood free from impurities and the immune system strong.
Artichoke: Artichokes have traditionally been used in herbal treatments to promote a healthy liver and efficient
digestive system. One of the primary active constituents in artichoke is cynarin - a compound that has been used in
Europe for several decades to lower elevated blood lipids (such as high cholesterol and triglycerides), lower total
serum levels and at the same time increase beneficial HDL levels - this therefore offers ideal support for
the prevention of heart disease and liver cleansing. More than 50 years ago, Japanese researchers
also found that artichokes can boost the production of bile by the liver, which can in turn break down
fat. Cynarin is the close botanical cousin of the herb milk thistle.
Green Tea: Camellia thea, or green tea, is a rich source of potent catechin polyphenols. Epigallocatechin gallate
(EGCG), in particular, is a powerful antioxidant. Polyphenols are active compounds that have beneficial health
properties. For instance, some studies have shown green tea polyphenols to have a stronger antioxidant action than
vitamin C and vitamin E - two of the most powerful antioxidants. Green tea can also support healthy weight loss,
because the polyphenols are thought to induce thermogenesis and stimulate fat oxidation.
Rhubarb: Chinese herbalists have relied on rhubarb rhizomes and roots for thousands of
years. They contain powerful anthraquinones and tannins that act as mild stimulant
laxatives and astringents, respectively. Rhubarb also acts as a mild stimulant for the production of oestrogen,
and is of value for the menopause and oestrogen deficiency. It also
contains some vital phyto-nutrients, such as dietary fibre, polyphenolic
antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Further, its petioles
contain no saturated fats or cholesterol. Rhubarb stalks are rich in several B-complex vitamins (such as folates, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine),
thiamin, and pantothenic acid) and minerals (such as iron, copper, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus). As with other
greens like kale, spinach, etc, rhubarb stalks also provide good amounts of vitamin K, which has a role in bone health by promoting osteotrophic (bone formation and strengthening) activity.
Cayenne: Also known as red pepper, chillies and Capsicum minimum in Latin, cayenne are bright red dried ripe pods.
The powder is known as cayenne pepper. It is regarded by professional herbalists as the purest and safest stimulating
herb known, and it opens up every tissue in the body to an increased flow of blood. It produces natural warmth, helping
to equalise circulation in the elderly. It is also an iron-bearer, which accelerates the oxygenation of cells, along with an
antiseptic, anti-spasmodic and carminative. It is well-suited to people of feeble constitution, with poor circulation and low
energy levels. It also widely used to support digestion, reduce wind and promote gastro-intestinal secretions (and
therefore improve appetite).
