The Great Supplement Debate: Why Whole Foods Are Superior
A compound called ellagic acid is one of the most potent cancer nutrients Mother Nature ever created.
Studies demonstrate that if you have cancer cells anywhere in your body, ellagic acid ferociously removes them, helping your immune system out by shutting off their ability to multiply. But you must get it from food, not a bottle! Here's why...
There’s just one problem. Ellagic acid cannot be absorbed by the human bloodstream very well. So it does you no good to take it in tablet form. You have to eat the foods that have it, such as strawberries and raspberries, which are so much more delectable than a handful of pills anyway!
When you eat these luscious fruits, you unleash this mighty nutrient throughout your bloodstream to help vanquish cancer cells on contact. You must get it from food, or you go unprotected.
Science has shown the nutrient beta-carotene to be Mother Nature’s “wonder drug” for the most feared diseases of our age, including cancer, heart disease and stroke. Beta-carotene is found in abundance in brightly coloured vegetables like carrots, pumpkins, sweet potatoes and red peppers.
People who regularly eat even small amounts of these foods enjoy almost unbelievable protection from cancer, heart disease and stroke. For example, a recent large-scale Harvard study found that eating just one little carrot a day cuts your risk of stroke by an astonishing 68 per cent.
There is just one catch. If you want beta-carotene’s magnificent protection against killer diseases, you must get it from carrots or other foods rich in beta-carotene…..NOT from beta-carotene supplements you buy in the health food stores.
New research has shown that beta-carotene supplements are NOT at all effective in preventing these killer diseases.
Why are food sources of beta-carotene so superior to supplements?
Scientists say it's because beta-carotene has at least 500 siblings, collectively known as carotenoids. Many of them haven’t yet been identified by science and there are hundreds more we don’t even know about in every refreshing bite of a single carrot.
So if you swallow a beta-carotene supplement, you get only the beta-carotene in an inactive form. But bite into a carrot and you get the entire combination of all 500 plus health-bestowing carotenoids, all of which dramatically boost beta-carotene’s power. It’s this combination of natural ingredients that protect you from heart disease, cancer and other diseases.
