Scientists aren't aware of all of the nutrients found in plants. While there are many that they know about, there are many more that remain undiscovered. Eating a whole food rather than an isolated supplement, provides not only the nutrients that we know about, but also includes those that have not yet been identified.
These foods are also loaded with enzymes and help to restore our enzyme deficiencies as well as rebuild our immune system.
Another interesting bit of information is that these special foods contribute to a more alkaline body. (High acidity is associated with many illnesses and poor health.) According to David Wolfe, the body will hold extra water to dilute the acids in a body with high acidity. The body also stores excess acids in fat tissue, which leads to weight gain.
Due to the depletion of nutrients in our food today, these nutritious foods offer a good, nutrient rich anti aging supplement to our diets. It is recommended that we consume them raw and organic for the maximum benefit.
The following are some of David Wolfe's top favorites:
