Here are a few they recommend: Metabolic enzymes, Zeolyte, Bee Pollen, a High Quality Green Powder (Vitamineral Green), Pure Synergy (a blend of 60 plants, herbs and superfoods), MSM, Cascara Sagrada, Chanca Piedra, Kelp, Cayenne, the blue-green algaes: Chlorella, Spirulina and E3Live, Hemp oil, Coconut oil, the multi-nutrient Vitamineral Earth, and an intestinal parasite cleansing formula..for the whole line up and detailed info on each - go here

and check out the main Juice Feasting page!

Here is a line-up of the supplements that Alex is taking regularly. She is also taking some supplements specifically to help repair her liver, as she has Hodgekins and her liver is not making proteins properly. (& she is working to eliminate the environmental toxin Allyl Chloride which is still in her liver). Alex has been to Hippocrates and gets many of her supplements through there.

Bee Pollen is the seed of a flower blossom, which has been gathered by bees and to which special digestive enzymes and nectar from the bees has been added. Pollen is the bee’s source of protein, where honey is their source of carbohydrate. The pollen is brought back to the hive and stored in the honeycomb cells for use later to feed the young. The pollen undergoes a fermentation process in the hive that preserves it allows it to last forever in the hive. Bee pollen out of the beehive should be kept cold (frozen) or dried at a low drying temperature, which helps to keep the enzymes alive as most enzymes are destroyed by heat.

Bee Pollen is highly nutritious and has a vast array of nutrients. It is also a complete protein and is the only known food to contain all 22 amino acids, which includes all eight of the essential amino acids needed by the body that we do not produce ourselves in our system. If you are concerned about protein intake on a raw vegan or vegetarian diet this is a great supplement to take. It has more protein per gram than any meat or fish.

Turmeric is a rhizome from the Ginger family. It looks a lot like ginger except for the bright yellow color, It is sometimes called Red ginger. Turmeric is warming, anti-septic, anti-bacterial, anti-viral.

Turmeric or Curcumin is an anti-inflammatory - it can be used on cuts and bruises. It ameliorates bacterial growth and ulcers and can help inhibit the growth or development of chemically-induced tumors in the body when taken internally. It is a powerful anti-oxidant and has many medicinal uses.

Systemic Enzymes impact processes outside of the digestive process. What differentiates Systemic enzymes from the more common digestive enzymes are how they work, where they work and when they are taken.

Systemic enzymes are microbial and plant enzymes which can survive the low Ph (acid) of the gastric (stomach) region, they are able to pass through without being destroyed and are able to work in the intestinal region. Where digestive enzymes are taken with meals to help with the digestion process, these should be taken between meals or they will be used as digestive enzymes are.. on an empty stomach they will pass through and be used all the way through, the intestines and also in the colon. Systemic enzymes are taken often to impact circulation and the cardiovascular and extravascular systems - they work to help many other processes in the body outside of digestion.

Phytoplankton are microscopic plants that live in the ocean. They are completely life sustaining, incredibly mineral and nutrient rich and are one of the most nutritious things you can put into your body. phytoplankton is responsible for 90% of the Earth's oxygen.They provide the energy for all of life in the underworld. This is because most phytoplankton photosynthesize, changing light energy from the sun into energy that all non-photosynthesizing organisms (including us) can use. Phytoplankton are at the bottom of the food chain in the aquatic ecosystem and are considered a micro-nutrient.

Ocean Energy is a (vegan) B-12 supplement which contains a combination of ocean and land nutrients which work synergistically to enhance energy and also helps to increase Hemoglobin (iron) levels in the blood. All of the botanicals in Ocean Energy are wild crafted or cultivated without pesticides. All added nutrients are organic.

In addition to Vitamin B-12, it contains:
Kelp (Atlantic) *
Algae (Blue-Green) *
Green Kamut *
and Bacillus Sporonges (non-dairy FLora) *

Milk Thistle has been reported to have protective effects on the liver and to greatly improve its function. It is useful to help the liver and kidneys recover from damage caused by drugs and alcohol. It is typically used to treat liver inflammation, cirrhosis and gallbladder disorders. The active compound in Milk thistle is silymarin, found mainly in the seeds.

Haven't heard from Alex yet today..

Kellan - Day 5/6 - Raw - has called in & is doing great! He finds he's waking up clear and fresh instead of groggy and in general he feels more awake, his mind is very clear all day. He slept an hour or two less at night but still sometimes gets very tired in the afternoon. So it's high energy throughout most of the day with a low time in the afternoon.

He says he finds himself stretching a lot, just really feels like opening up , he woke up and did this huge cat stretch.. thats always good, and great to get things moving, and for detoxifying - a natural reaction to help the body eliminate and help the flow.
He feels very healthy - & he feels like meditating. He meditated for half an hour int he morning and his girlfriend who is still in Nb just went to her 1st sweat lodge ceremony and she feels it awakened something in her, her spiritual side and she wants to mediate also. They both mediated last night together, she at 9 pm and he at 8 pm, same time with the time difference, for 50 minutes.

He just finished straight guacamole again before I talked to him and had gone out & bought lots of pecans,almonds and pumpkin seeds to snack on ..and sprouts. He needs to go get a jar to start sprouting himself. & he doesn't have a blender yet but wants to get a good one.. I am sure I can find just a regular one for him to use until he gets his dream blender.
..just thought I would put it out there to the Universe!
