Superfoods from the land, sea, and lakes

Superfoods from the land, sea, and lakes
Food and its effects on the human body has been and always will be a focal point of our work here at Hippocrates. One thing that fascinates us is the power of lesser known foods, herbs and plants on the human body. Mainstream health literature understands how fruits and vegetables promote optimum health, but the world knows little of the bounty of foods that are available to us on the land, in the sea, and in the lakes of this world.

Here, we look at just a few of these wonderful plants and why they should be part of your daily diet.

Foods from the land

Whilst most of the world's fruits and vegetables are sourced from the land, there's a whole world of incredible herbs and berries which are often sidelined and yet aid our bodies in so many ways. 

Amla Berries: also known as the Indian Gooseberry, amla berries provide strong immune system boosting effects due to antibacterial and astringent properties, along with its hearty dosage of vitamin C. It supports your body in the production of white blood cells, and eliminates toxins that enter the body.

Chickweed: Chickweed is a flowering plant related to carnations. As the name suggests, it is deemed a weed, and yet its benefits to the human body are numerous and powerful. It has been found to help purify the blood, and subsequently reduce blood disorders as well as related disorders in other areas of the human body such as skin problems caused by ulcers and abscesses.

Shilajit: a powerful Ayurvedic medicine that's made from centuries of decomposed plant material. This forms a sticky substance on rocks in the Himalayas, which is shilajit in its pure, unrefined form. It's a powerful energy booster, known for combatting chronic fatigue syndrome whilst boosting testosterone.

Foods from the sea

The sea is home to some of the most amazing algaes in the world. Different to freshwater algaes, we like to combine both for optimal nutrition.

Bladderwrack: A thyroid wonder food. Bladderwrack is used for a variety of thyroid disorders, including underactive thyroids and goiter. In addition, it provides a good dose of iodine which protects and heals the thyroid.

Laver: A form of seaweed commonly used as nori in sushi. Laver can lower both triglyceride and cholesterol levels in the body, resulting in better cardiovascular health and cutting the risks heart disease. It also helps to purify the blood and has anticoagulant properties, meaning it reduces the risk of strokes.

Foods from the lakes

Freshwater algae provide their own unique benefits not found in algaes in the ocean.

Spirulina: There are many wonderful reasons to include spirulina in your diet, but one that's almost unique to it is C-Phycocyanin. It inhibits Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate oxidase in the body, giving it some of the most powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of any food on Earth.

Chlorella: besides being packed with vitamins and minerals (think of this like nature's multivitamin), chlorella can be absorbed through the blood-brain barrier and supports the anatomical structure of the brain. It's also one of nature's most potent detoxifiers, removing and eliminating heavy metals such as mercury and arsenic from the body.

Enzymes and probiotics - the missing puzzle piece

It's important to note that without enzyme and probiotic intake, the body will struggle to maximize the effects from these amazing foods. We highly recommend enzymes such as protease, amylase, cellulase, and more are taken in abundance to ensure the body can breakdown these amazing foods. Meanwhile a probiotic mix should be used enhance the absorption once breakdown is complete.
