Eat your seaweed and energy powers your body longer. One cannot function well without energy, right? Sometimes, we wake up in the morning already feeling “tired” and lethargic. And often, we are clueless as to why we seem to lack energy in days when we need it the most.
The answer can be found in the body’s cells. The energy that powers your body originates in the individual cells, which need a certain amount of energy to do their job. To bring out that energy, there are tiny cellular “engines” called mitochondria. There are 2,500 mitochondria in almost every body cell. Without these burning furnaces, our body cells will not metabolize properly, regenerate and live!
What do we do to avoid energy depletion?
Practice these high energy eating habits:
• Try to balance protein, carbohydrates, and fats in your diet.
• Cut down on refined carbs like white bread, sweets, and sodas.
• Have more fruits and vegetables each day.
• And when it comes to vegetables, sea vegetables pack the most energy-boosting wallop!
Seaweeds or sea vegetables —chlorella, spirulina, blue-green algae —are high in vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, enzymes and fiber. These combined nutrients work to metabolize body fat and tone muscle tissues, improve liver function, and supply the body with potent antioxidants, to stave off the harmful effects of oxidation or free radicals “roaming” in the body, especially when stressed. Sea vegetables offer an absorption rate better than any other nutrient supplement available today.
So remember, eat your seaweed and feel your energy levels soar.
