I have recently added three new ingredients to my smoothie : astragalus, wheatgrass and kelp.What are these powders good for?
Astragalus is claimed to stop the aging process, heal wounds and control sugar in diabetics. TA-Lab produces a quite expensive product name TA-65. Google TA-65 if you are interested. If you do try it then I would love to hear from you if it loves up to the claims they make.
Wheatgrass is ideal for balancing the body’s ph-value. Ideally the blood should be slightly alkaline, a ph- value of about 7.2. Wheatgrass is also claimed to slow down aging, increase red and white blood cells, detoxify liver and colon, help with digestion and many beauty benefits. Again google wheatgrass.
Kelp, a seawood, contains iodine. Common table salt comes with added iodine. So if you are cutting own on salt then you are also cutting down on iodine. Idoine is good for regulating the thyroid and pituary gland. Thyroid is responsible for regulating a strong metabolism and normal body temperature. So if you are avoiding salt then you should consider taking kelp.
After a month of taking these powders I am not yet able to confirm any of these benefits but that maybe due to the fact that my body is already in a good healthy state.
Have a long, happy and healthy life.
