3. Wheatgrass

If you haven’t tried wheatgrass yet, you are in for a treat. Wheatgrass contains phosphorus, calcium, potassium, magnesium, B vitamins, vitamin C, and vitamin A. Wheatgrass is also a powerful detoxifier that cleanses the body of toxins and neutralizes other toxins with enzymes. Wheatgrass is also a great source of healthy chlorophyll and tastes great to boot!

 

4. Chlorella and Spirulina

OK, so these are actually pond scum, but you can’t imagine what wonderful health benefits there are lurking in pond scum! These are amazing superfoods that are loaded valuable nutrients. Chlorella is rich in chlorophyll that has more than 20 vitamins and minerals, as well as all 18 amino acids. Spirulina also contains 18 vitamins and minerals, 8 amino acids, omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.

Combined both of these superfoods are high in antioxidants as well as proteins, and both do an amazing job removing heavy metals and other toxic chemicals that might be in the body. Since these foods are so good at absorbing metals, it’s very important that you purchase these items from a trusted source so that you don’t buy products that have been exposed to, and therefore absorbed, heavy metals from the ponds where they have been grown.
