Superfood vs Miracle Green/Other...Re: random comments


Howdy Rooth -

'Glad to hear you're getting into truly natural healing - good for you!

There's a HUGE difference in varying "superfood blends"...and in typical "Schulze style" I'm going to say -- 'giving your body what it needs and healing yourself is not about the taste factor, it's about what is best for your body'.  Your taste buds will acclimate to anything. 

Dr. Christopher said that our 'unnatural, poisoned taste buds' are sometimes THE "biggest mountain".  If you're 'in a place' where you really won't eat something you truly need because of your taste buds, then now is the best time to identify that and get to work on healing it...and here's all you need to get started: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1711602#i

Many people can't stand the taste of healthy/natural Superfood when they first taste it (Rocky n' I hated it), so we bought it in capsules (even though that's not an efficient way to get it...by the way, 2T is around 16-20 capsules)...and every couple of weeks we mixed up a smoothie and tasted it again.  After a couple-three months (along with our other diet changes), we found it was tolerable, after another few weeks, we were looking forward to it (and laughing at ourselves & celebrating our victory big-time).

Bottom line: 'Just like all other kinds of herbal "supplements", 90-95% of the superfoods on the market are a scam and a ripoff...and many (many!) contain harmful ingredients/substances that are TOTALLY unnatural to the body.

Generally the "yummy" superfood blends have all kinds of ultra-sweet 'dried fruit juices/berries' added, at the expense of the higher nutrient ingredients (some even have processed stevia...not natural leaf - and nobody even knows what 'white stevia' will do to us, but you can bet it's not a goodness).  And there's not very many blends on the market that use organic plants/herbs.  Then there's cost...

Most supefood blends recommend 1-2 Tablespoons daily.  2T is the bare minimum in my book, and that's for "normal life".  Our bodies have been running like there's a brick on the accelerator for most of our lives just tryingi to keep up with the horrendous toxin/poison load and lack of oxygen (oxygen level in the atmosphere in the 1970's was 30%; now it's around 18% in the country and only 12% in the city).  2T of superfood for 'normal life' is actually not enough, but it's not even close to enough when we're forcing our bodies to cleanse, detoxify and heal themselves.  So 4-6 T daily is the minimum I suggest...and when most are $30-$35 per month for 1-2 T daily, 3 tubs a month (plus shipping) is more than most can afford.

In fact, for this very reason, 'Superfood' is why we started making our own formulas - so it's the foundation of our entire Apothecary ('we two adults' couldn't afford $200 a month for us both to get the superfood our bodies desperately needed).  After checking out what was available, we knew we had to make our own to ensure we were getting a quality product that didn't plow our body with unnatural substances and various 'chemical isolates'.

Hmmm, I can't find an ingredient list for Miracle Greens, it seems they've changed the name to Macro Greens (same company).  Here's the ingredients (and my commentary) for Macro Greens (if this isn't the right one, then you can compare the list to whatever you're using):

Macro Greens Supplement Facts

Certified Organic Spirulina Powder good 600 mg **
Chlorella-Cracked Cell good 200 mg **

Spinach Powder with Octacosanol, Triaconsanol, Hexacosanol, Tetracosanol Proprietary Blend 

a "propietary blend" of chemicals extracted from non-organic spinach? omg

85 mg **

Non-Dairy Probiotic Cultures Min. Organisms (At MFG) 8.5 Billion Units

most of these will be dead, and if they weren't cultured in 'dairy' then how were they cultured?

Of course we need to replenish our gut flora, but starting with gut flora in some type of "natural" balance is optimal

Throwing in a few million/billion critters that are 'out of balance' only means our body HAS to spend time/energy

rebalaning the unnatural levels and ridding itself (lymphatic/immune stress) from gazillions of dead bodies. 

  **
Lactobacillus Rhamnosus   **
Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bulgaricus   **

Bifidobacterium Longum and Breve

Okay, a quick scan below shows this is going to be getting pretty ugly, so before reading any more of my comments,

please read this from Dr. Schulze: Isolated/Standardized Extracts of plants & herbs

  **
Antioxidants   **
Vitamin E (Natural d-Alpha Tocopheryl Succinate) isolated, unnatural to the body 100 IU 334%

Grape Seed (95% Proanthocyanidins) standardized, unnatural to the body (if one doesn't know what

"proanthocyanidins" then ingesting it/them is.....?)

30 mg **

Ginkgo Biloba (24% Ginkgo Flavoglycosides 6% Terpene Lactones) non organic (likely from China) standardized, unnatural to the body...TEN mg?

Jeez, that's about as much as you could put on the head of a straight pin :::sigh:::  ...and that's another 'superfood scam'...

...they pack in a zillion ingredients so they can make a zillion claims, but there's not enough of any of them to have any

type of positive effect on the body.  Nobody gets any 'effect' from 1/50th of an aspirin.  DOSE SIZE MATTERS.

10 mg **
Antioxidant Proprietary Blend 1280 mg **
Acerola Berry Juice Powder (natural source of Vitamin C) how much of the 1280 mgs is it?   **

  **
Aloe Vera (Freeze Dried) non organic...how much of the 1170 mgs is it? 450 mg **
Natural Plant Enzymes 200 mg  

Protease, Lipase, Amylase and Cellulase  There's nothing "natural" about taking a plant into a laboratory and

extracting/isolating it's enzymes!  And there's certainly nothing "natural" about ingesting one plant's enzymes while eating a different plant with other enzymes.  it's possible that adding unnatural enzymes could shut down our body's own production of natural enzymes.

** Percent Daily Values not established.

OTHER INGREDIENTS: Stevia. Would this be the ground-up, organic green leaf (natural) or would this be the white, processed, nutritionally void 'white stevia sugar' chemical? Since there's virtually nothing "sweet" tasting in this, if it has a sweet taste it likely has a LOT of "stevia"

 

Dr Schulzes Superfood:   SuperFood by Dr. Schulze

--(equal parts, all powdered, all organic)

Spirulina

Chlorella (cracked cell)

Wheat grass

Barley grass

Alfalfa leaf

Spinach leaf

Beet root

Rosehips

Orange peel

Lemon peel

Purple Dulse…mix all of the above –  then add equal part of the ‘mix’ to equal parts of Nutritional Yeast.  Our ‘Special Blend’ (for non vegans) is one part of each of the herbs/plants; two parts Red Star.

From us, it's currently $18 for a month's worth (2T daily) for $42 for a month's worth (6T daily).   Just imagine how much MORE of the important nutrients someone would get!  The 'superfood alternatives' are even whole/natural foods, they're just a bunch of isolated plant chemicals, fillers, fiber and toxic herbs mixed together (with a handful of truly natural ingredients) blended together to taste yummy and have lots of potential for hype & profit.

>>>Anyway, gonna try the liver detox plan that I bought.<<<  Whatever it is, I sure hope it's wholesome, natural organic...and that you've done a good colon cleanse first (at LEAST 10-14 days). Be sure to check out 'why that is' in this post: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1745851#i

>>> Funny thing, I was skeptical that I would have the stick-to-it-ness to keep up with hot/cold showers but now that I've tried them, funny thing... I LIKE THEM! I was reminded of how I used to love to dive into a cool pool with the feeling of the crisp water all around. The first cold cycle is a slight shock, then it gets to feeling soooo goooood. :) <<<

Absolutely AWESOME!!! 

Keep learning, keep striving, and keep up the good work! :)
