The typical choices we make in the grocery store have fallen significantly short of providing the nutrients we require in order to live a healthy lifestyle. Processed and chemically laden foods riddle the shelves, and much of the produce section is severely short on nourishment due to growing and harvesting practices. So what does a person do to ensure they are getting what they need on a daily basis? I’d suggest they consider these eight superfoods that can heal the entire body.
Aloe vera has 20 minerals, 12 vitamins, 18 amino acids, 200 active plant compounds (phytonutrients), and strong antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.
Aloe vera benefits include:
Eases inflammation and arthritic pain
Heals ulcers and a wide variety of digestive disorders and complications
Treats Candida and parasites
Reduces heart attacks and strokes
Helps halt the growth of cancer tumors
Bee pollen is a rich source of carotenoids, 22 amino acids, and enzymes. It is a also good source of B-vitamins, vitamin C and E, and over 68 minerals.
