More and more people are getting sick, have prescription medications and need to visit the doctors more constantly. This is because they are more likely to be suffering from nutritional deficiencies and lacking from the main nutrition that you need.
People always have a different opinion as to what exactly to eat for optimal health. That’s why your diet always lacks important nutrients even when you make every effort to eat healthy.
Victoria Boutenko wrote the book “Green For Life” in search of the perfect human diet. She absorbed all the information and research she could and discovered an interesting observation.
The Chimpanzee Connection: Apparently, 99.4% of our DNA sequence is shared with chimpanzees, making them and humans most closely related animals than any other species.
What does this have to do with anything? Chimps are in much better physical shape than humans, and are naturally immune to cancer and other fatal human illnesses that are quite common.
Through Victoria’s research, the main reason for the chimpanzee’s superior health is due to their diet. Humans and Chimps have greatly different eating habits
It’s All About The Greens: Chimps eat items that hardly exist in the human world, a diet particularly high in dark leafy greens! While us humans are enjoying our pizza and burgers.
So when Victoria focused her studies more on dark leafy greens. She discovered a super-food crammed with huge levels of nutrients.
Here are 3 amazing facts about greens:
1. Greens are packed with healthy fats! Aka… amino acids/protein.
Dark leafy greens are in fact a legitimate main source of protein believe it or not.
Chains of amino acids make protein molecules. When you eat chicken, the protein is already in chains of amino acids that have already been assembled into complex protein.
When eating dark leafy greens, you get a plethora of individual amino acids that your body then takes and assembles them into complex protein chains.
2. Greens give you lots of insoluble fiber.
Fibres are important to get rid of unwanted toxins in your body. Insoluble fiber from greens absorbs several times more toxins than its own volume because of its sponge-like structure. A few on many benefits of fibre include:
- It reduces cholesterol
- It can reduce the risk of cancer and prevent it
- Fiber makes the risk of diabetes less and help with existing diabetes
- Fiber can reduce over eating and help to shred unwanted fat.
3. Greens help with homeostasis.
Homeostasis is a process to keep the stability of the internal environment of the body. The body works consistently to make sure the body is regulated and maintained stable properties of the body such as pH or temperature. This is very important for optimal healthy and your body is constantly working towards this.
For homeostasis, your body requires a large quantity of vitamins, carbohydrates, minerals, amino acids and essential fatty acids. Greens provide all of these in high amounts.
