If I were asked the area of greatest misunderstanding and confusion in the field of nutrition, I would immediately reply that it is the failure to properly understand and interpret the symptoms and changes which follow the beginning of a better nutritional program

What is meant by a better nutritional program? It is the introduction of foods of higher quality in place of lower quality ones.  Take proteins for example. Raw nuts and seeds are superior to cooked legumes. Lima beans, lentils or chick peas are superior to flesh proteins like beef and pork. The closer the food comes to the natural state in which it occurs, and the closer to its raw, uncooked form, the higher its quality is. In this condition, all the enzymes Enz - Probiare found intact, the amino acids E - Fusionare in their finest form, and the minerals, vitamins, Avena Vitamin Supremetrace elements, carbohydrates and life forces are present.  This, in turn, is capable of reproducing tissue which is full of life and long lasting. The quality of a nutritional program is also improved by omitting toxic substances such as coffee, tobacco, alcohol, sugar, salt, much animal products that are loaded with antibiotics, hormones, etc.

What is the relation of quality of foods to recovery from illness? It is this in a nutshell: The higher the quality of food we eat, the quicker we recover from disease – provided we are able to properly digest and assimilate that food. When the quality of food coming into the body is of higher quality than the tissues which the body is made of, the body begins to discard the lower-grade materials to make room for the superior materials it needs to make new and healthier tissue.  This is the plan of Nature.  The body ALWAYS aims for improvement and tries to produce better health — unless our interference is too great.  Only then do we fail to recover and degenerate further into disease.  The self-curing nature of many conditions such as colds, fevers, cuts, bruises and injuries furnishes endless examples of how the body ALWAYS tends towards health – unless we do something to stop the process.

How the Body Responds to an Improved Dietveggies_small

As we gradually raise our food quality, interesting cleansing symptoms begin to appear.  The cellular intelligence reasons like this: “Oh! Look at all those fine materials coming in.  How wonderful! Now we have a chance to get rid of this old garbage and build a beautiful new house.  Let’s get started immediately.  Let’s get this excess bile out of the liver and gallbladder and send it to the intestines for elimination.  Let’s get this sludge moving out of the arteries, veins and capillaries. These smelly, gassy, brain-stupefying wastes have been here too long – out with them! These arthritic deposits in the joints need cleaning up.  Let’s get these irritating food preservatives, sleeping pills and prescription drugs out of the way. Let’s clear out these masses of fat which have made life so burdensome for so long.”

Stages of Detoxification and RegenerationHerb Cocktail

In the first phase called catabolism, the accent is on elimination, or breaking down of tissue, as the body begins to clean house and remove the garbage deposited in all the tissues.  Wastes are discarded more rapidly than new tissue is made from the new food.  This becomes evident as weight loss. This first stage persists for awhile and is then followed by a second phase called stabilization.

In this phase, the weight remains more or less stable, because the amount of waste material being discarded daily is equal to the amount of tissue which is being formed and replaced by the newer, more vital food. This persists for awhile and is then followed by a third phase – a building up period known as anabolism.

In the anabolic stage, weight starts to go up because new tissues are being formed faster.  This is due to improved assimilation and efficiency made possible by the healthier diet.  The body’s need for the usual amounts of food decreases, and it is able to maintain weight and increase energy with less food. Many persons are able to function very efficiently on two healthful meals or even one meal per day.

In addition to weight changes, other symptoms can occur with a superior nutrition program:

Skin rashes – Some people, especially those who have had tendencies in the past to recurring skin rashes or eruptions, will frequently tend to eliminate poisons and harmful drug residues through the skin again.  If they go to a doctor who is not familiar with this aspect of nutrition, he will diagnose it as an allergy.  The patients ask, “How come I’m eating better now than I ever did before, and instead I’m getting worse?” They don’t understand that the skin is getting more alive and active.  It is throwing out more poisons more rapidly and that these discarded toxins are saving them from more serious disease if they remain in the body – possibly hepatitis, kidney disorders, blood disease, heart disease, arthritis or even cancer.

Colds or fevers – With some people, colds which haven’t appeared for a long time may recur, or even fevers.  This is nature’s way of housecleaning.  Understand that these actions are constructive, even though unpleasant at the moment. DON’T try to suppress these symptoms by the use of drugs.  These symptoms are part of a curing process – don’t try to cure a cure! These are NOT disease conditions if you’re eating properly.  Here is where experienced guidance is of great value.  (Experiencd counselors can help.)

Other symptoms – Headaches, bowel sluggishness, occasional diarrhea, frequent urination, feelings of fatigue or weakness, disinclination to exercise, irritability, and even depression may be temporary reactions to an improved dietary regime. The great majority of people who understand what is going on (and thus eliminate the fear component) find these transient reactions tolerable.

The symptoms will vary according to the materials being discarded, the condition of the eliminatory organs and the amount of energy reserve you have available. The more you rest and sleep when detoxification symptoms are present, the milder they will be and the more quickly they will pass.  The severity of your symptoms will certainly depend on how poor your diet was in the past.  Those who have poisoned themselves through toxic food choices will experience more severe symptoms if their liver, kidneys or other important eliminatory organs have been damaged. When these have been renovated, they will no longer produce symptoms.

Cyclical cleansing – Don’t expect that improving your diet will make you feel better and better each day until you reach perfection.  The body is cyclical in nature, and health returns in a series of gradually-diminishing cycles.  Take hepatitis for example: You start a better diet, and for awhile you feel much better.  After some time, a symptom occurs like diarrhea or nausea for a few days. Then all goes fine for awhile until you suddenly develop a cold and lose your appetite.  After two to three days (assuming you don’t take drugs to treat it), you suddenly recover and feel better than you did for years.  This well-being continues for two months, when you suddenly develop an itch or a rash, which flares up and gets worse for a few days, and suddenly subsides.  Immediately after this you find your hepatitis is gone and your energy is better than ever before.

This is how recovery happens.  You feel better, a reaction occurs and you don’t feel as well for a short while, then you recover and go higher for awhile. Then another reaction occurs, milder than the last.  You recover and go even higher.  And so it goes – each reaction generally milder than the last and shorter in duration, followed by a longer and longer period of feeling better than ever before, until you reach a level plateau of vibrant health. If you learn to obey the laws of Nature, if you learn to eat simple, pure and natural foods that are mostly raw (80% raw and maybe 20% cooked), your body in return will efficiently cast off all the destructive ways of eating you have taken in during your life.

Note: cooking or heating food destroys all enzymes. We require enzymes for all body functions. Enzymes and proteolytic probiotics are the workers. Nothing gets done unless they are present. Protein does not get utilized, minerals are inactive and vitamins do not function without enzymes and probiotics. This is the order that nutrients work in the body.

Probiotics… The Invisible Universe Of The Human Microbiome

Interesting! Probiotics helps in reducing Eczema, and the best prevention is to introduce a probiotic during pregnancy and post birth – this can reduce the chances of eczema by half!! How awesome is that?! 😉

Also… The microbiome will change the way we treat disease and most important PREVENT disease. Since this video, see below, came out research has revealed that the health of our microbiome can help with weight loss, energy and overall health. It’s fascinating!  Eliminating toxins and eating real, wholesome foods can keep your microbiome healthy.

An easy and glorious video on how to protect the microbiome and avoid autism, ADHD, allergies, cancer and other autoimmune diseases. Plus much more…

Our Proteolytic strain has a bacteria blend that work together by building a strong gut bacteria. 😎 pp240

Did you know?
– 80% of the immune system resides in the gut
– in babies, the digestive system finally sets in by 18 months
– by 3 years of age the microbiome system fully becomes stable

Ensuring a strong gut balance and immune system, concentrate on foods that support gut health like, high fibre foods, fermented foods, and try to achieve a minimum 70-80 plant based foods and 30-20 cooked foods.
Avoid processed, and sugary food.

The next time you look in a mirror, think about this: In many ways you’re more microbe than human. There are 10 times more cells from microorganisms like bacteria and fungi in and on our bodies than there are human cells. But these tiny compatriots are invisible to the naked eye. So we asked artist Ben Arthur to give us a guided tour of the rich universe of the human microbiome.

Our Body Needs PROTEIN…

Our Body Needs Protein

Protein is one of the most essential nutrients in our body besides enzymes. It has a wide range of physiological functions that are required for achieving optimal physical performance. Protein forms the structural basis of muscle tissue, is a major source of energy for muscle contraction, and is also the major component of enzymes and blood in the muscle.

Athletes such as dancers and gymnasts who tend to restrict their energy intake to maintain a low body weight, as well as vegetarian athletes, may have a higher protein requirement and/or not ingest sufficient protein for their needs.

The body breaks down protein into individual components of amino acids. These amino acids are then used to rebuild the body and build muscle for athletic performance.

Raw, high quality amino acids will produce lean and stronger muscle without the large size. Heated or cooked amino acids found in soy, whey and animal products will produce more bulky muscles which will turn flabby if workouts are not maintained. Heat binds lysine, which is the controlling amino acid. If food is even a little low in lysine, all the other seven essential amino acids are not utilized. These unutilized amino acid are extremely toxic to the body.

Carbohydrates on the other hand, break down into sugars which the body burns as a stimulant, like pouring sugar in the gas tank of your car. The engine will run much hotter and even have extra horsepower but it will wreck the engine. This same principle applies to the body.

The liver produces glucose levels required for energy, and glucose is created from amino acids. Amino acids are the fuel source for our bodies. Look at the animal kingdom. Ever try to outrun a dog… a deer? How about a cheetah? None of them use carbohydrates they are getting high levels of raw amino acids in their raw diet providing what seems to be an infinite supply of energy.

Having a surplus of raw protein, more than needed to maintain health, provides the body with the ability to support higher activity requirements. 95% of athletes seriously damage their bodies by trying to push its’ limits. They look great on the outside but are in pain and discomfort on the inside. Therefore, supplementation with high quality, raw protein is necessary for the highest athletic performance possible.

Enzymes must be in the body first. Without enzymes, protein is not utilized. Without protein,

minerals are not absorbed. Without minerals, vitamins do not function and in that order.

The amount of quality protein in your diet is the single most important calorie that influences your metabolic rate, favorably influencing fat loss and lean body mass. Quality protein also helps you sustain muscle during weight loss, improve muscle fitness, improve immunity, improve antioxidant function, build HDL cholesterol, and enhance insulin and leptin function – all of which contribute towards optimal fitness levels over time.

A remarkable quality about Avena’s RP3 Protein is that it contains all 9 essential and all the non-essential amino acids in a perfectly balanced Amino Acid Profile. In fact, our comparison by an independent lab test confirms that Avena’s RP3 Protein is equal or higher in some cases than the amino acid profile of egg, whey, and beef. (Please refer to Avena’s Protein Nutritional Facts for amino acid profile. 

Avena’s RP3 Protein is living and more potent and absorbable than non-living animal proteins. Most athletes take high amounts of animal protein that is not usable for the body and is actually acidic creating intestinal toxemia and other disturbances. Because Avena’s RP3 Protein is predigested with bio-fermentation and natural enzymes, it has 95% to 98% digestion efficiency. And it’s completely hypoallergenic.

Goji-berries” – Research has shown that Goji-berries contain the highest concentration of cell nutrients of any whole food in the world.  Goji-berries are high in antioxidants.   The powerful natural food increases intercellular communication and comes high in vitamin B1, B3, and B6.   Goji-berries have all 8 essential amino acids and all the non-essential amino acids.  Goji-berries provide 21 trace minerals and stimulates secretion of the human growth hormone.  Research shows Goji-berries increases energy- cleans the blood and reduces anxiety.

Enzyme Enhanced” – One of the key enzymes is Protease which helps predigest the protein and improves the bioavailability of the protein.  This provides less stress on the organs and reduces inflammation from an intense workout and quicker recovery.

Proteolytic Probiotics” – assist the body to eliminate toxins and waste from bad bacteria and undigested proteins.

Q. How do I use protein for weight loss?

A. Easy to digest proteins are the key to fueling and driving metabolism, The Natural flavor will be the best suited for this purpose, and try and use it in-between breakfast and lunch, prepare for increased hunger, but careful to not over eat due to the increased hunger.

Q. What is the importance of this product being RAW?

A. Amino acids are essential for life and vitality! When protein gets heated, even low heat can cause the Lysine to bind and have a major negative effect on many of the essential amino acids. 

Q. Why is there protease added to this formula & how much?

A. Protease greatly increases the ability to breakdown the proteins into amino acids and dramatically increase the bio availability. We have added 100,000 HUT of Protease per serving. Helping make this virtually 100% absorbable.

Why do we need Protein?  – We need Protein for energy, Strength, building of cell structures, and the breaking down and elimination of toxins.  “Complete protein” – high in branch chained essential and non essential amino acids which help to create greater muscle mass and strength. Avena’s RP3 is based on high quality Pea and Hemp Protein. Contains Branch Chain Amino Acids which are higher than any other plant-based protein.
