Dear Health Seekers and GetWell Algae Eaters,

I wonder do you realize that the science of nutrition has been exploding in recent times? Until quite recently, all of the nutritional factors that were thought to be important in foods included protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.

But in the forefront today are a whole new class of nutrients that are known as "phytochemicals," a word which means literally "plant chemicals." They include such substances as indoles, quinones, phenols, isothiocyanates, polyacetylenes, saponins, sterols, terpenes, lignans, and triterpenoids. There are thousands of different phytochemicals. One reference book alone lists over 20,000; but the total number that occurs within plant foods is undoubtedly much higher than that. Phytochemicals serve as protectives against the phenomenon whereby healthy cells turn unhealthy and multiply rampantly. Phytochemicals act in several ways: (1) by serving as anti-oxidants that scavenge free radicals directly and disarm them, (2) by serving to support the body in the supplying of a strong nutritional base which assists in the detoxification process, (3) by serving to inhibit the expression of unhealthy changes in cells and to block the reproduction of unhealthy cells, and (4) by serving to boost the production of various enzymes that are involved in DNA repair. Scientists are not completely sure how each phytochemical works in the human body. But they do know beyond a shadow of a doubt that diets high in raw, unrefined, organic plant foods serve the body so that unhealthy changes at the cellular level are minimized.

Phytochemicals are associated with the pigments within foods: the orange color of carrots, the red color of tomatoes, and the green color of spinach, for instances. In general, the more richly colored and the more deeply pigmented a food is, the more protective phytochemicals the food contains. Indeed, blue green algae is known to be a rich source of phytochemicals. And there is no food more deeply pigmented than our Super Blue Green Algae.

To obtain the greatest array of benefits from the army of phytochemicals that exist within plants, you need to eat a wide variety of richly colored fresh fruits and vegetables; and you need to eat them raw. Keep in mind


that many of the phytochemicals are sensitive to heat. Fruits should always be eaten raw. There is no good reason to cook them. Baked apples, stewed peaches, and the like can easily be replaced with raw. Vegetables can be eaten lightly steamed; but make a point to eat at least one large, raw vegetable salad every day. And when you shop, buy color! The deeper the green in your lettuce, for instance, the more phytochemicals it contains, as well as vitamins and minerals. Do not discard the dark, coarse, outer leaves of cabbage because that is where most of the phytochemicals reside. Eat "A Rainbow Diet" the more colors, the better: red, yellow, orange, green, even blue, as in blueberries. Most people rarely eat blueberries, but they happen to contain more anti-oxidants and phytochemicals than any other fruit. Be sure to include dark, leafy greens in your diet, such as spinach, kale, and bok choy, because these vegetables are the richest of all in phytochemicals, as well as vitamins and minerals.

One thing that should occur to us, in light of "The Phytochemical Revolution," is that those who have relied on processed, nutritional formulas have been shortchanged. For instance, a baby who is breast-fed receives phytochemicals from her mother's milk assuming her mother eats abundantly of fresh fruits and vegetables. But what about the babies who are raised on infant formula? What company has had the foresight to include phytochemicals in the infant's formula? None that I know of. And what about nutritional formulas for the aged and the infirm? These commercialized foods, too, are completely lacking in phytochemicals. And what about formulas for animals? An animal in the wild obtains phytochemicals from the raw, wild game that it eats and from raw, wild plants. But modern pet foods, which consist of highly cooked, refined, and processed food fragments to which various vitamins and minerals are added, must contain few, if any, phytochemicals.

There is one reason why some Hygienists always add Animal Algae to their pets' nightly ration. Because they want to insure that they obtain the phytochemicals that are needed and that are missing from their food. The Large Animal Algae costs only $52.oo, and it lasts for many months if you are feeding just one animal. If you try it, I'll bet you will notice a difference in your pet's vitality and overall health.
