(NaturalNews) Like a battery you need to be charged up every day. At the atomic level, our bodies run through an electrical energy system. The coordinated flow of this electrical energy at all times is what makes up the presence of life. Lifestyle habits that add voltage to our system help sustain the flow of energy while habits that subtract voltage reduce the presence of life. Anti-oxidants are free electrons that enhance our energy and protect against inflammatory damage.
Your body is made up of 75 trillion cells that operate in synchrony to keep your body breathing, healing, and living every single day. Each of these cells acts as a little energy cranking out energy in the form of a biological unit called adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
The solar power of the sun charges most all life on earth and directly and indirectly charges our bodies. The grassy fields, the trees, the seawater algae and the herbs are living agents that harvest the sun’s light through the process of photosynthesis. When we or any other animal consumes these foods we take in the sun’s energy as electrons. These electrons are then used to produce ATP.
As we increase the amount of electrons through our diet and lifestyle, we build an ATP surplus and a stronger life force. This electron flow improves the process of healing, remodeling and rejuvenating within the body.
Unfortunately, in our society today most individuals are deficient in electrons and produce dirty energy. Dirty energy production creates ATP but also a high level of waste in the form of free radical particles. When these free radicals are able to run rampant in our bodies they restrict our life force and accelerate aging and tissue degeneration.
Clean energy sources are rich in anti-oxidants
Anti-oxidants act to neutralize these dangerous free radicals and bring balance to the body. Clean energy sources are rich in trace minerals, electrolytes, and anti-oxidants and produce very little free radicals. The net effect of this energy source is a surplus of anti-oxidants to protect the body from future stresses. Certain lifestyle habits produce anti-oxidant rich clean energy while others produce free-radical loaded dirty energy.
The most powerful sources of clean energy include raw, organic vegetables, and superfood extracts. Most people know that raw fruits and vegetables are good for health, however, they misapply these natural nutritional powerhouses. Fruit contains high levels of fructose so it is best to limit fruit consumption and use fruits that are low glycemic such as berries, avocados & citrus fruits & granny smith apples. Some vegetables are digested better in a raw form while others are best marinated, lightly steamed or sauteed.
The veggies that are best in the raw form include celery, carrots, cucumbers, spinach, bok choy, bell peppers, romaine lettuce, parsley, cilantro, radishes, snap peas, and beets. The veggies that have a challenging outer cellulose layer are much more bioavailable when they are lightly steamed or marinated in lemon or apple cider vinegar. This would include broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collard greens, onions, cabbage, watercress, brussell sprouts, & asparagus.
Superfood extracts that provide mega-doses of anti-oxidants include organic herbal teas and water infusions. These drinks have no sweeteners or calories and include mega doses of high powered nutrients. Boiling water can impact some of the anti-oxidant content of the tea so be sure to keep the water temperature low.
Infused drinks with clean spring water and anti-oxidant rich superfood extracts such as green coffee bean extract, cinnamon, cacao, African mango, Indian Gooseberry, raw veggies, & unique herbs are a powerful inclusion to supercharge the body.
