10 Superfoods For Youth And Vitality

  1. 1. 10 Superfoods for Youth & Vitality
  2. 2. Dr. Perricone <ul><li>In 2004, Dr. Perricone shared the results of his study and identified 10 superfoods that literally help to defy the aging process... </li></ul>
  3. 3. Orovo Superfood #1 Acai Fruit <ul><li>Acai is considered by many to be one of the most nutritious foods in the world. </li></ul><ul><li>Acai fruit has been found to contain more than 10 times the antioxidants than red grapes and its fatty acids are rich in monounsaturated oleic acid -- similar to olive oil. This acid helps omega-3 fish oils work more efficiently within the body. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Orovo Superfood #2 Allium Family <ul><li>The Alluim Family of foods includes onions, scallions, garlic, leeks, shallots and chives. </li></ul><ul><li>Each of these foods contains high levels of flavonoids that stimulate the liver to produce powerful antioxidants. Because the liver aids the body in eliminating toxins, these superfoods are essential elements in any Orovo detox program. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Orovo Superfood #3 Barley <ul><li>Barley’s power comes from its combination of soluble and insoluble fiber. </li></ul><ul><li>The soluble fiber in barley helps the body metabolize carbohydrates, cholesterol and fats. </li></ul><ul><li>The insoluble fiber keeps the body regular, reducing the risk of digestive tract cancers like colon cancer. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Omega-3 acids have been linked to lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure and a lower heart attack risk. </li></ul><ul><li>Research has shown that in the body, lignan binds to estrogen receptors. This means flaxseed may eventually play a big role in the prevention of estrogen-driven breast cancer and other cancers. </li></ul>Orovo Superfood #4 Flaxseed
  7. 7. <ul><li>The super green foods in Orovo are barley grass, wheat grass and a blue-green algae known as BGA. </li></ul><ul><li>Green foods contain high levels of chlorophyll, the phytochemical that gives them their dark green color. Studies have shown that these green foods lower cholesterol and blood pressure as well as prevent cancer and stimulate the immune system. </li></ul>Orovo Superfood #5 Green Foods
  8. 8. <ul><li>Barley is a staple food in Eastern Europe and Asia, but is often lacking in traditional American diets. </li></ul><ul><li>Orovo considers buckwheat to be one of the most important superfoods due to its high mineral content, healthy fats, soluble fiber and flavonoids. </li></ul>Orovo Superfood #6 Buckwheat
  9. 9. <ul><li>These superfoods contain folic acid, potassium, phytochemicals and essential fatty acids. </li></ul><ul><li>Beans release fiber into the body slowly, helping to maintain blood sugar levels -- especially beneficial when dieting. In addition to their fiber content, beans are good for the heart because they provide high levels of potassium, which may help reduce the risk of high blood pressure or stroke. </li></ul>Orovo Superfood #7 Beans & Lentils
  10. 10. <ul><li>Peppers act as fat burners and contain two times the Vitamin C as oranges or grapefruit. </li></ul><ul><li>The healthy compounds in peppers are called capsaicinoids. The spicier the pepper the more capsaicinoids it contains and the higher the health benefits. These compounds work to keep the heart healthy and fight against cancer. They also increase metabolism and aide in weight loss. </li></ul>Orovo Superfood #8 Hot Peppers
  11. 11. <ul><li>Sprouts have concentrated sources of living enzymes and antioxidants that help fight the aging process. </li></ul><ul><li>Sprouts are an ideal source of Vitamins A, C, E, and K4; and minerals such as calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron. </li></ul><ul><li>Research has shown that amino acids contained in alfalfa sprouts help fight pancreatic, colon and leukemia cancers. </li></ul>Orovo Superfood #9 Sprouts
  12. 12. <ul><li>The live active cultures found in yogurt & kefir help to prevent intestinal and colon cancer. </li></ul><ul><li>Yogurt is an excellent source of calcium, phosphorous, riboflavin-Vitamin B2 and iodine. It also contains optimal levels of vitamin B12, zinc, potassium, and protein. Probiotics are also key in any Orovo detox program because they keep the intestines healthy and working properly. </li></ul>Orovo Superfood #10 Yogurt & Kefir
  13. 13. Concentrated Superfoods <ul><li>The makers of Orovo developed a formula that combines the essential nutrients within these Superfoods into one powerful supplement. To learn more, visit: </li></ul><ul><li>www.OrovoShop.com </li></ul>
