All life is a change of matter. Nature has certain patterns. Often the pattern followed is the pattern of seven. If we place a seed in the ground, we don’t get a seed out. After we place a seed in the ground, within a few days it becomes a sprout. Then it transits into a shoot. Next it becomes a stem. From the stem comes a leaf. Further on appears a bud. The bud becomes a flower. Out of the flower comes a seed. The seed has gone through an evolutionary process of seven stages.
Alpha-linolenic (ALA) acid is a type of omega-3 fatty acid found in plants. It is similar to the omega-3 fatty acids in algal oil, called eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Your body can change alpha-linolenic acid into EPA and DHA. Alpha-linolenic acid is also found in flaxseed oil, hemp oil, marine phytoplankton, AFA Algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae), chia seed and walnuts, to name a few sources. These are all good sources of this important nutrient.
“To understand juice therapy requires an understanding of juice itself. How would you define juice? We define it as water, flavors, pigments, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Juice is all of these substances working synergistically to give your body the materials that promote healing, energy, and protection from disease. But beyond what we can define, there is a mystery left undefined. It’s like the miracle of birth. There is a miracle of energy supplied by live plants that comes from nothing else of this planet. After all is investigated and analyzed, it still can’t be fully explained. We’re not saying that juices are ‘magic bullets’. They should be part of a diet that is a high-quality, comprehensive approach to wellness. We do know that juice therapy has worked to bring about recovery from illness for thousands of people, many of whom had been given no hope to live.” Juicing for Life (Avery Press).
