Acai Berry: The world’s most incredible berry from the Amazon forest! Not just that, but we are able obtain it in organic form (grown without any pesticides or chemicals). This dark purple berry has the highest ORAC score (102,700) in the world, of any edible food.

ORAC, which stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, is a score used to compare foods that are rich in antioxidants which help protect our cells and their components from oxidative damage and destroy, in our bodies, excess free radicals, one of the causes of premature aging, heart disease, cancer, inflammation, arthritis, osteoporosis, wrinkles, DNA damage (from pollution, toxic exposures, diet, etc.) and other health challenges. Acai berry has 9 times higher ORAC score than even the powerful blueberries & 16 times higher than red raspberries. Incidentally, the powerful an-tioxidants in acai berries are those pigments which account for its deep purple color.



Almonds (soaked): Almonds are the only highly alkaline (as opposed to acidic) nuts and are considered the healthiest nuts you can buy. They’re a powerhouse of nutrients like potassium, calcium, magnesium, folic acid, riboflavin, phosphorus, fiber and vitamin E.

Almost 20% of almond’s weight is protein. Almond oil is one of the best oils for skin. Soaking almonds 8-10 hours makes them a lot more bioavailable and increases their nutritional content. Almonds, which are very rich in phytosterols (plant sterols), are a great way to also lower your “bad” LDL cholesterol and thus reduce your chances of heart disease.


Amaranth (grain): Not just a good source of vitamin C and A, amaranth contains various nutrients which have shown in clinical studies to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels and having and benefitting heart health in general. It’s also a good source of protein,

and loaded with manganese and also contains iron, magnesium, phosphorus, selenium, zinc and 20 other minerals & vitamins!


Amaranth Greens: A good source of vitamins and antioxdiants A and C as well as B3 (niacin), B9 (folic acid), protein, calcium, potassium, iron and manganese and at least 12 more vitamins and minerals. Amaranth greens contains various nutrients which studies

have shown in clinical to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels and having and benefitting heart health in general. Amaranth greens can also give you stronger bones because it’s very rich in rarely-discussed heart-friendly vitamin K, which also gives a VERY important signal to the body: “please put the calcium into the bones, but not arteries”!


Amaranth Leaves (Wild): A good source of vitamins and antioxdiants A and C as well as B3 (niacin), B9 (folic acid), protein, calcium, potassium, iron and manganese and at least 12 more vitamins and minerals. Amaranth leaves contain various nutrients

which have shown in clinical studies to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels and having and benefitting heart health in general. Amaranth leaves can also give you stronger bones because it’s very rich in rarely-discussed heart-friendly vitamin K, which also gives a VERY important signal to the body: “please put the calcium into the bones, but not arteries”!


Apples: We’ve all heard the phrase “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”, but did you ever wonder why? Not just tasty, but apples also have properties that many other fruits don’t, proven by over 4000 scientific studies. Apples are very rich vitamin C also

in flavonoids (a type of antioxidant) which can prevent heart disease and fight excess free radicals which accelerate the aging process. Flavonoids and other compounds in apples have also shown their ability to fight breast cancer, colon, prostate and other cancers in studies at Cornell University and other prestigious institutions. Those who consume apples on a daily basis also have less respiratory problems. Apples also contain heart-friendly antioxidants called phenols which can reduce the “bad” LDL cholesterol and also improve the levels of the “good” HDL cholesterol. The many phytonutrients in apples slow down not only your body’s aging but can also slow down your brain’s and help to prevent degenerative “old age” diseases like Alzheimer’s.


Apricots: a Himalayan tribe which is now famous because so many Hunzas live to over 100 years of age. Apricots are a primary food of the Hunzas.

Azuki Beans:These sweet and nutty flavored beans have a very high content of both protein and dietary fiber. Azuki beans also have a high ORAC score of over 8,000. ORAC is a score used to compare foods which are rich in antioxidants which, in our bodies,

destroy excess free radicals, one of the causes of premature aging, heart disease, cancer, inflammation, arthritis, oste¬o¬porosis, wrinkles, DNA damage (from pollution, toxic exposures, diet, etc.) and other health chal¬lenges. Azuki beans are a nutrient-dense food when compared with how few calories they have. They’re also rich in vitamin B complex, potassium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese and there’s ample evidence that azuki beans are great for heart health. Soaking or sprouting azuki beans for many hours makes them a lot more bioavailable & increases their nutritional content.
