SuperFood For Babies
My youngest (15 months) is a bit of a fussy baby. He's a great sleeper, but if he isn't outside, he is sitting at my ankles crying... My mother-in-law suggested I try giving him "SuperFood". I was at my wits end and was ready to try anything! Sure enuf... IT WORKED! i know it worked because a few days later (in order to test my findings) I didn't give him any and he was back to his fussy manor. The minute he saw me making him a drink he practically pulled my pants off trying to climb up me to get to his drink!!
SuperFood has some of the most important vitamins and nutrients our bodies need that we miss out on a daily basis from the Standard American Diet. It is also known as a "green drink". The ingredients include:
Spirulina Blue-Green Algae- High in the b-vitamins and one of the highest sources of Beta-Carotene helps aid the body in resistance to diseases
Chlorella- Strengthens the immune system and helps detoxify the body and neutralize harmful substances in the body
Alfalfa, Barley & Wheat Grasses- The word alfalfa literally means "best food" they are good as an anti-arthritic, an anti-asthmatic, a deodorant, and a diuretic.
It is the richest land grown source of trace minerals and elements such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron & phosphorous. Combined with the other "greens" they seem to balance the so called salt system of the body & act as a natural diuretic.
Purple Dulse Seaweed- Dulse Seaweed does not give a fishy smell or taste... Seaweed has the richest source of assimilable minerals (as well as trace minerals)on the earth.
Beet Root & Spinach Leaf- Both have strong blood building properties
Rose Hips, Orange and Lemon Peels- Large Source of Vitamin C which helps aid the body against stress, stroke, colds, and skin aging
Non-Active Saccharomyces Cervisiae Nutritional Yeast- It is the second highest source of complete protein in nature along with other vitamins and minerals such as iron. The yeast is completely NON-ACTIVE
When all of these ingredients are put together they strengthen the blood which is essential for us to have to function at our best. I know many people who have used it with their children and have seen changes in their demeanor and attitude. It helps children focus naturally while still being able to BE CHILDREN! It's the first thing all my boys have in the morning. I put 1/2 a tsp in a vegetable juice I make, a smoothie, their cereal or oatmeal... they barely even notice. For my baby I give him 3-4 1/2tsp servings a day in homemade veggies juice... he now thrives... and sits and my ankles when he knows i am making him a drink. I highly recommend it to mom's who want happy, healthier children!!!
