Alarming Facts about the Food We Eat

Posted on June 4, 2011. Filed under: Food Facts, Nutritional Cleansing, Nutritional Cleansing Guide, Toxicity in our World | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

It’s getting harder and harder to stay healthy in our increasingly toxic world. We’re exposed to more chemicals, pesticides and pollutants than ever before in history; they seep into the water we drink, pollute the food we eat and permeate the air we breathe.

Recently, the nonprofit Environmental Working Group released a disturbing study after analyzing the blood of newborn babies across the United States. In addition to discovering 287 chemicals and other toxins in their blood, they also found 76 chemicals that damage cells in humans and animals; 94 that are toxic to the brain and nervous system; and 79 that are toxic to a developing fetus.

What’s causing this?
Alarmingly, over-farming is wiping out the nutrients in your vegetables and fruits. Fertilizers intended to sterilize the soil have robbed it of mineral content. Since the soil is depleted, so are the foods grown in the soil, and so are we.
Take a look at this important study by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) showing the loss of vitamins and minerals in fruits and vegetables since 1975.

• Apples: Vitamin A is down 41%
• Sweet peppers: Vitamin C is down 31%
• Watercress: Iron is down 88%
• Broccoli: Calcium and vitamin A are down 50%
• Cauliflower: Vitamin C is down 45%; vitamin B1 is down 48%; and vitamin B2 is down 47%
• Collards greens: Magnesium is down 85%

So, how do you get the nutrients your body needs to safeguard your health?

Health professionals have signified certain supergreens and superfruits that infuse the body with phytonutrients to protect your health. Phytonutrients enhance your body’s natural detoxification pathways, enabling health and longevity. You might have heard of spirulina, chlorella and wheat grass, for example, which are supergreens. Mangosteen, Star Fruit and Acai Berry are powerhouses of nutrition, too—which is why they’re called superfruits. These superfoods can be your essential line of defense against environmental toxicity.

As the World Leader in Nutritional Cleansing, Cellular Replenishing, and Youthful Aging™, Isagenix® offers two revolutionary superfood products to boost your body’s ability to clear toxins and replenish with optimal nutrition. Isagenix Greens!™ and IsaFruits® contain the healthiest supergreens and superfruits on the planet. Our unique cold processing technique, which features natural spray drying and concentration, preserves the phytonutrients in these superfoods.

Your Green Light to Good Health

Isagenix Greens! contains premium sources of phytonutrients including spirulina, wheat grass, and chlorella among its supergreens.  Spirulina is a kind of blue-green algae that is one of the world’s richest sources of vitamins, minerals, iron, protein and a host of other energizing and detoxifying nutrients. Wheatgrass contains dozens of minerals, including high concentrations of potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Chlorella is powerful detoxifier to safeguard against pollutants, chemicals and pesticides.

Isagenix Greens! also contains a rich supply of key antioxidants including ginkgo biloba and green tea extract to help combat free radicals (which endanger cells), and probiotics to support digestive health, plus milk thistle, cilantro and other power-packed ingredients from the plant kingdom to further support detoxification. In addition to containing premium sources of phytonutrients, Isagenix Greens! contains Ionic Alfalfa™, a proprietary blend of minerals with alfalfa juice sourced from prehistoric beds of organic plant matter located within the Earth. Using no-compromise ingredients in this “spark plug” of life, these minerals provide the building blocks that support the body’s functions.

The power of superfruits
IsaFruits contains almost 20 different superfruits. In fact, one serving of IsaFruits equals the same antioxidant-strength of 20 servings of fruit. These antioxidants help protect your body from free radicals—which can harm your cells—as well as promote cardiovascular health and a healthy immune system. Plus, IsaFruits is free of binders, waxes, artificial flavors or sweeteners. With only 30 calories and only 1 gram of sugar per serving, IsaFruits is an ideal alternative to unhealthy sugar drinks and sodas. It’s a great drink for kids and they love the taste. Did you know that when children and teens get their fruit-derived nutrients each day, they’re more likely to do better in school and have a healthier lifestyle long-term? IsaFruits can give your children and teens a competitive edge in all the activities they do.

Convenient packets for briefcases and backpacks
Both IsaFruits and Isagenix Greens! are available in on-the-go packets, as well as canisters. These packets are great to toss in lunchboxes and backpacks (for kids’ lunches and their afterschool activities including sports), and also convenient to take to work—where it’s often a challenge to eat healthfully.

Get your nutrients on-the-go
Did you know that the United States Department of Agriculture recommends 7 – 13 servings of fruits and vegetables every day? Both Isagenix Greens! and IsaFruits are fast and convenient ways to boost your daily intake of vegetable- and fruit-derived nutrients to protect your health. Pour a packet of IsaFruits or Greens! powder—containing the phytonutrient power of superfoods—into your water bottle and shake it up. Or stir a packet in a glass of water or juice.
