Nutraceuticals, Functional Foods & Dietary Supplements
The medical definition of a nutraceutical is a foodstuff (as a fortified food or a dietary supplement) that is upheld to provide health or medical benefits in addition to its basic nutritional value… a.k.a. functional food. The nutraceutical industry has developed alongside the expansion and exploration of modern technology. There was a market research report conducted in the year 2012, and let’s check out the projection of this report. The worldwide nutraceuticals market will reach U.S. $250 BILLION by the year 2018, and this is defining the market as “dietary supplements” (vitamins, minerals, herbals, non-herbals, functional foods and beverages). A “dietary supplement” is something a person takes by mouth, and the intention is to have the “dietary ingredient/s” it contains augment the person’s eating regimen. The dietary ingredient/s in the formula may include any of the following… vitamins, minerals, herbs or other botanicals, amino acids, and substances such as enzymes, organ tissues, glandulars and metabolites. Dietary supplements can also be extracts or concentrates, and these are available in a plethora of forms such as tablets, capsules, soft-gels, gel-caps, liquids or powders. In capsules, soft-gels and gel-caps, you may notice gelatin as an ingredient. If you abstain from eating pig, know this… More often than not, gelatin has been derived from pig.

Algae… See chlorella and spirulina.

Chlorella… A Small Wonder, But Is It For Mankind To Consume?
In the realm of health, people tout chlorella because of its PRESUMED benefits. They claim that it improves bowel function, aids in the processing of oxygen, helps to prime the key elimination system of the body, provides powerful detoxification from heavy metals plus promotes the growth and repair of the body’s tissues. But, do you know? The cell wall of chlorella is indigestible to mankind, and it first has to be mechanically broken for it to have any benefit. Did the Lord God of Israel give all of us this nourishing substance to consume? Find the surprising answer to this perplexing question in the eBook, “The Pure Truth… What To Eat.” John 17:17… “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”

Colloidal Silver… A Bolt From The Blue
Usually in water, colloidal silver is a suspension of microscopic particles of silver (research interface and colloid science). After the 1930’s, its use in mainstream medicine was largely abandoned. In vitro (in a petri dish or test tube), it’s been shown to have anti-bacterial properties. However, in vivo (used internally in a living being), no evidence has ever shown it effective. For the people who take it internally, they may develop argyria. Argyria is a permanent blue-grey discoloration of the skin. Kidney damage is yet another serious side effect of consuming colloidal silver. The body of a male and that of a female has no biological use for silver. I 100% guarantee that this substance was never given to mankind for consumption by the Lord God of Israel. Proverbs 3:5-6… “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean NOT unto thine own understanding. In ALL THY WAYS acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.”

Flax & What It Can Do To You
The regular consumption of flax can lead to what allopathic doctors call ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel syndrome. Not only this, but eating flax may impair the clotting of blood, trigger the vomiting of blood, cause blood to appear in the stool, obstruct the intestines and/or the esophagus plus worsen inflammation. For women who partake of it over some time, there’s an increased risk of breast cancer and for men who partake of it over a period of time, there’s a higher risk of prostate cancer. When a woman continues to take flax into her body, there’s a damaging effect to her hormones which leads to infertility via the following medical conditions… polycystic ovary syndrome, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine and ovarian cancers. In the eBook, “The Pure Truth… What To Eat,” you’ll read the shocking information concerning this seed.

Fulvic Acid… Let’s Dig In
Existing in nature as an outcome of microbial metabolism processes is the substance of fulvic acid. This means fulvic acid comes about when organic plant matter decomposes, and millions of beneficial healthy bacteria are the result. More simply put… A component of soil, fulvic acid releases as organic matter decomposes. Fulvic acid is one of two classes of humic acidic, organic compounds found in the earth’s soils, rock sediments and bodies of water. A popular fulvic acid supplement is shilajit, and this is a blackish-brown powder or fluid. This natural Himalayan substance forms by the gradual decomposition of particular plants and organisms in that area.

Grounding Yourself
Through research… It’s been revealed that exposure to natural organisms within soil, such as fulvic acid, has these advantages… protects people from infections, viruses, those undesirable yeasts and fungus… raises cognitive function, betters digestion, increases nutrient absorption, elevates energy levels, boosts immunity, enhances gut health, upgrades the condition of the skin and delays the aging process.

Which Way Will You Go?
Mankind’s way is to make fulvic acid into a food-grade supplement. The way the Lord God of Israel has people to intake fulvic acid is indirectly through gardening and consuming plants that have been grown sustainably. Romans 12:2… “And be NOT conformed to this world: BUT be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Ginkgo Biloba… What’s There To Learn?
Seen by a German botanist, the first record of Europeans encountering it is in 1690 in Japanese temple gardens. Ginkgo biloba shows a preference for disturbed sites like stream banks, rocky slopes and cliff edges. Ginkgo biloba leaves contain a TOXIC COMPONENT called ginkgolic acids which are the highly allergenic, long-chain alkylphenols. In fact, standardized products should contain no more than 5 parts per million (ppm) of the HARMFUL GINKGOLIC ACIDS. NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS associated with ginkgo biloba are increased risk of bleeding, gastrointestinal discomfort, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, dizziness and restlessness. Ginkgo seeds were brought to Europe from Japan in the early 1700’s, and late in that century… they were brought to America. Many of the early trees grown in Europe were males. Near Geneva, the first recorded female tree was found in 1814 which was grafted in a male tree in the botanical garden of Montpellier, and this is what grew the first perfect seed. In many countries around the world, the tree now grows as an ornamental tree. Here’s how they sell it to all of us… “Ginkgo may be the oldest living plant seeds, and therefore… seen by some as one of the wonders of the world.” You should be able to easily spot 18+ conspicuous words that should definitely raise serious concern within you about consuming ginkgo, and if not… then I highly suggest you strongly consider reading the eBook, “The Pure Truth… What To Eat.” The Lord God of Israel would NOT give anyone anything with a built-in poison. We find in Scripture the following. 2Timothy 2:15… “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Kombucha… Is Trouble Brewing?
I present all of the super interesting facts about this so-called restorative beverage in the eBook, “The Pure Truth… What To Eat,” and what there is to know is nowhere near what you may think.

Mushrooms… The Mystery Of This Edible
Reishi, Shiitake, Chaga, Maitake, Lion’s Mane and Cordyceps are some of the most famous medicinal marvels touted for the health and healing of the body. Then, there are the mushrooms prized for their culinary splendor like Almond Portobello, Chanterelles, Morels, Lobster, Porcini and Wine Caps. The story behind the mushroom’s popularity will absolutely astound you! Before you take your next bite of one, you’ll definitely want to read what’s written in the eBook regarding them… “The Pure Truth… What To Eat.”

Know Them By Their Fruit
Matthew 7:17-20… “Even so every good tree bringeth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”

Noni Fruit… To Eat It Or Not To Eat It?
Here are the shocking facts. Do you know?… Historically, noni fruit has been used for ABORTION. Upon eating ripe noni fruit, most insects DIE INSTANTANEOUSLY. Also known as morinda citrifolia or VOMIT FRUIT, noni is of an UNKNOWN ORIGIN. Noni fruit consists of several fruits FUSED TOGETHER into a MULTIPLE FRUIT. Noni has a major side effect of which to be aware, and this is that it CAUSES HARM to the liver and kidneys. I’m totally confident in stating… Noni fruit, and the extraordinarily overpriced juice thereof, is definitely NOT a food given by the Lord God of Israel. As stated within, “The Pure Truth… What To Eat,” just because something is a fruit…this doesn’t mean it fits into The Most High’s scriptural law. Here’s a very valuable scripture verse for all of us to read frequently. Hosea 4:6… “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”

Spirulina… A Nutritional Sensation, But For Who Or What?
Spirulina is a unique blue-green algae, and biologically speaking… spirulina is actually a cyanobacteria. Because the cell wall of spirulina is composed of mucopolysaccharides, it’s easily broken down by mankind’s digestive system unlike chlorella. Promoted by many people who teach health, spirulina supposedly bolsters a distinctive set of incredible benefits that chlorella doesn’t possess. Before taking this substance into the body, you’d be extremely wise to read the eBook, “The Pure Truth… What To Eat.” This is your life we’re talking about. Deuteronomy 30:15-16… “See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the Lord thy God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply…”

An Essential Vitamin… B12, What’s It All About?
Let’s talk about an immensely popular dietary supplement, and this is vitamin B-12. B-12 is available for sale in numerous forms, but methylcobalamin is the focus herein. This man-made and edible consumable comes out of a laboratory. Do you know how mankind concocts it? They reduce cyanocobalamin with sodium borohydride in alkaline solution, and then they follow this with the addition of methyl iodide. On the other hand… The Lord God of Israel has provided His people with marvelous, natural food sources for this essential vitamin. Within “The Pure Truth… What To Eat,” there’s mention of the foods that comprise a substantial amount of B-12. At approximately $25 for 2 ounces of methylcobalamin, you can instead purchase 2 pounds of a delectable food that’s chock-full of vitamin B-12. This stellar food also houses a host of other B vitamins. Here’s a scripture verse to raise the eyebrows, and it’s in Isaiah 7:15… “Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.”

Vitamin D3, Your Reaction… Wow, What’s In That Stuff?
What if I gave you a particular product, and I explained to you that it could cause the following… confusion, vomiting, constipation, kidney stones, cough, dizziness, difficulty swallowing, fast heart beat, hives or itching… puffiness or swelling of the eyelids or around the eyes, face, lips or tongue… skin rash, tightness in the chest and/or unusual tiredness or weakness. Would you take it into your body? All of the previously mentioned are the negative side effects of putting into the body what goes by the name of cholecalciferol, or maybe you know it as vitamin D3. The Lord God of Israel has males and females make cholecalciferol within their skin, and He has it within certain foods (fish). Mankind’s idea is to make cholecalciferol for use as a pharmaceutical drug. The manufacturers concoct it by the ultraviolet irradiation of 7-dehydrocholesterol that’s been extracted from lanolin. Lanolin is a fatty substance found in sheep’s wool. Mankind shears the sheep, then they cleanse the wool, and from this they obtain wool grease and wool wax alcohols. From the latter, they draw out cholesterol. To make 7-dehydrocholesterol, the cholesterol goes through a 4-step process. Mankind uses ultraviolet light to irradiate the 7-dehydrocholesterol, and during irradiation… Some undesirable isomers develop, and they have varying techniques for removing these isomers. What’s left behind is a resin which melts at room temperature. As well, manufacturers derive cholecalciferol from the plant source of lichens as an option for people who eat in the style of vegan. Please, don’t allow anyone to hoodwink you. Indeed, understand that there are negative side effects to nutraceuticals, functional foods and dietary supplements.

A Choice To Make
What will you do? Will you choose the way of mankind, or will you live by the food laws of the Lord God of Israel? Proverbs 21:2…“Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: BUT the Lord pondereth the hearts.”
