3 Nutritional Keys for Optimal Health and Vitality

1. Phytonutrient antioxidants to prevent free-radical damage

Miessence Certified Organic BerryRadical Antioxidant Superfood. Nine freeze dried superfoods provide 4000 ORACs per teaspoon.

  • Free radicals damage cells and DNA. They are produced by the body and introduced through the environment.
  • Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals
  • Plants create antioxidants to protect its fruit from damage from the suns free radicals
  • To get enough antioxidants, you need a minimum of 7 servings of fresh fruit and veggies every day. (1 serving = 1⁄2 cup)
  • All plants have an ORAC score. ORAC = Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity. (7 servings = 3,500 ORAC units)

Variety is the key – A study in 2006 by Thompson, H.J. showed that a botanical diversity of fruits and vegetables plays an important role in the biological effect of antioxidant phytochemicals. The consumption of smaller quantities of many phytochemicals may result in more health benefits than the consumption of larger quantities of fewer phytochemicals.
Berry Radical: 1 tsp = 4,000 ORAC units (8 servings of fruit and vegetables) A delicious combination of the worlds most potent, antioxidant berries and raw chocolate (cacao).

Ideal food intake – 80% alkaline 20% acidic
Alkaline foods: Mainly fruits and veggies
Acidic foods: Meat, poultry, milk, cheese, bread, pasta, pastries, snack food, soft drinks and packaged foods.

  • To help neutralize the acid, your body donates alkalizing minerals (calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium)
  • Excess calcium (donated from the bones to try to neutralize acidity) now has to be excreted by the kidneys or in the faeces or it will be deposited elsewhere in the body…
  1. Lining of the arteries – hardening/atherosclerosis
  2. Kidney or gallbladder – stones
  3. Brain – brain fog/dementia
  4. Joints – stiffness/arthritis

We must:
-Cut down on acid consumption
-Replace alkaline minerals
-Or both!
