Holy Basil, an Indian herb long revered in Ayurvedic medicine and other eastern medicine systems, lives up to its sacred name. It has been called the “elixir of life” and "the queen of herbs."
Holy Basil has been shown to have adaptogenic, antimicrobial, anti inflammatory effects. Its compounds work synergistically to support bodily systems -- such as cardiovascular, cognitive, metabolic, and immune function.
It may also be an effective antidepressant.
Chlorella, a green unicellular alga, contains many nutrients, notably Vitamin C, Omega 3s, and Iron. It’s packed with many more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and is a great source of plant based protein as well. In fact, when dried, it’s about 45% protein.
Chlorella has been shown to improve the immune response, including increasing immune cell production.
As an alga with the highest amount of chlorophyll, it’s also considered a tool for athletic endurance. It helps the body clean up and facilitate recovery.
Chlorella is believed to facilitate liver detoxification and blood sugar and blood pressure balancing.
More than a garnish, the humble parsley leaf packs a powerful nutritional punch.
This green herb eaten in many cuisines worldwide contains a variety of antioxidants, including flavonoids, carotenoids, and vitamin C. It’s a good source of many other vitamins and minerals as well.
Parsley can help support bone health, thanks to vitamin K, and its folate content promotes heart health.
Parsley also has been shown to have antibacterial effects. At least one study found it effective against natural microflora, coliforms, molds, Staphylococcus aureus, and yeast.
Moringa, an herbal plant known as “The Miracle Tree,” has been called on throughout history to treat many illnesses and health ailments. The plant is also known as the drumstick tree, horseradish tree, ben oil or benzolive tree. It contains all the essential amino acids and bioactive plant compounds, including carotenoids. Because of its rich nutritional profile, it is an anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant.
Moringa Leaf equals 7x the vitamin C of an orange and 15x more potassium than bananas.
Moringa Leaf may help to lower cholesterol and balance blood sugar.
Nettles have a long history of treating various health ailments. When a live nettle plant’s leaves are touched, they sting and can irritate the skin. Amazingly, these stinging chemicals are lost during the drying or cooking process--making them safe to consume.
Nettles contain many bioactive compounds that act as antioxidants and have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. They also contain beneficial fatty acids.
Studies indicate Nettles may reduce inflammation, blood pressure and blood sugar levels. They are also used to treat hay fever symptoms, to promote hair growth, and more.
Yep, that same Dandelion Leaf we abhor in our yard is full of beneficial nutrients, including beta carotene, vitamin C, vitamin A, B vitamins, many minerals, and protein.
Interestingly, Dandelion Leaf boasts high levels of plant-based protein. Higher than spinach, in fact!
Dandelion has shown to support and detoxify the liver. It works as an anti-inflammatory, and it also improves immune function.
AFA Algae (aphanizomenon flos-aquae) are ancient cyanobacterium rich in vitamins, antioxidants, omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, and the essential and non essential amino acids. AFA algae is high in chlorophyll, an antioxidant that helps detoxify the body.
We enjoy using algae as a food source for many reasons, including that algae grows fast and doesn't compete with traditional agriculture practices. Algae consume CO2 and release oxygen for us to breathe.
Due to its components, AFA algae functions in the body as an anti-inflammatory. It provides support for gut, heart, and immune system health.
Kelp is a type of seaweed that serves as a terrific source of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. It provides B vitamins vital for cellular metabolism and energy. The iodine in kelp helps support thyroid and metabolic function. It’s also a good plant-based source of calcium, which is vital for bone and muscular health.
Kelp can be a great source of antioxidants, which help prevent oxidative damage and inflammation.
