There's been a lot of interesting discussion in the health and nutrition media the past couple of years about how the nutritional value of our food supply has been deteriorating due to the massive amount of demand on our soil.
Multiple crops per year in a field, a lack of "fallow" time on a field to allow it to replenish some of those nutrients that went into the previous crop, and the preponderance of Genetically Modified Organisms in our food crops has led to a food supply that is less nutritious than we've ever had.
Even if you're eating what are traditionally the "right foods" - vegetables, fruits, fish, meats, and nuts - the nutritional value of those foods is considerably less than that which sustained us for most of our history. And it's only getting worse.
So how do we combat this? One of the big suggestions is via the use of sea vegetables as food. Do a search on the internet for sea vegetables and you'll find a lot of great information. They're clean, packed full of nutrients, and replenish quickly in an environment that is full of minerals. You've probably had them yourself if you've ever eaten sushi.
My favorite way to take in sea vegetables is via Body Balance, a daily drink from Life Force International. 2-8 oz. per day (depending on how much you want to take) can turn your health around and give you more vitamins than you may have ever had. And Body Balance also gives you Aloe Vera, which is an amazing source of minerals and nutrients in itself. It's an easy way to start the day and get some nutrients that help make our bodies feel great.
How does it taste? It's great! It's sort of like a combination of black cherry and apple cider - it's got a little bit of sharpness to its flavor and you know you're taking in something good for you.
