Great, In-Depth Information on Some Super Nutritious Foods 10 juillet 2009
Par Jennifer Ayers-Gould - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
David Wolfe provides very detailed information about some specific "superfoods" and also provides scientific rationale (sometimes down to the molecular level) about why these foods are so beneficial for us. This book is very informative and I like that it also provides practical ways in which to consume the superfoods, providing recipes and recommended dosages. However, he also lists a lot of very "impractical" recipes using very obscure and expensive ingredients that most people will not find in their pantries, even if they are already a practicing raw-foodist (like me). While I find the information very enlightening, I also find a lot of blatant advertising for David's "Sunfood" brand of products and his "Longevity Now" program. I don't know about you, but when I find a sales pitch interwoven into the pages of what should be a purely informative book, it immediately causes me to have some doubts regarding the credibility of the material. So, while the information on superfoods is very good, I was not impressed with the advertising thrown in with it. Otherwise, I would have given it 5 stars.

Packed with Information & Great Recipes 14 mai 2009
Par Susan Schenck - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
David Wolfe has lived up to his reputation as an encyclopedia of nutritional facts with his new book on superfoods.

Why superfoods? The rationale is that the soil, as my own raw food book points out, is vastly depleted of minerals. If you cling to your cooked ways, adding superfoods can bring a huge boost to your health. But even if you eat 100% raw organic, you could have mineral deficiencies (and minerals are more important than vitamins). Quite simply, these foods make for tasty and nutrient-dense treats. I have recently begun combining a raw food diet with calorie restriction for longer life. I view the superfoods as essential because the fewer calories we consume, the more nutritious they need to be. Why take dead vitamin pills when you can get more bioavailable nutrition from these enzyme-rich foods?

David presents what he considers the top 10 superfoods, and these are not your every day superfoods. I have a whole shelf dedicated to superfood books, and most authors list items such as wild salmon, pumpkins, blueberries, broccoli and kale. The exotic ones chosen by David include the illegal-to-grow here (hemp seed), the unheard of (marine phytoplankton), the foreign (maca) and the controversial (raw cacao). But as David says in the intro, "Our nutrition potential has finally caught up to our technology," meaning that we now can learn about and import foods from virtually anywhere in the world.

Each chapter, featuring a different super food, includes a section on history, facts and legends of the food; benefits; what to look for (how to determine if the food is high quality); how to use the food, and recipes for the food. There are also great colored photos and boxes with tidbits of information.

The last chapter includes "honorable mentions" of 7 other superfoods that didn't make the top ten, so the book really educates you about 17 great foods. The appendices provide detailed nutritional composition of the foods as well as scientific studies proving their superiority.

I congratulate David on his fine research. Even though I have a master's degree in Chinese herbs, I was delighted to learn a few tidbits on goji berries that were new for me.

Warning: do not read this book if you are fasting. Like most people who have eaten raw for several years, I have outgrown the recipe phase and don't do much raw gourmet food, eating more simply. But I have to admit my mouth was watering over several of these recipes and I just might make some, such as the "White Goddess Chocolate" and "Maca Vanilla Ice Cream."

AMAZING!!! 2 mai 2009
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
David has done it again. This man knows so much about nutrition it's mind boggling! He is a shining, living example of what happens when people eat these superfoods because he is total boundless energy all the time. I interviewed him for my radio show the other day and just talking with him energized me beyond belief. I have incorporated many of these superfoods into my diet and it has doubled my energy levels. I love the goji berries and of course raw chocolate the best. Also the coconut oil has truly helped me to look and feel ten years younger. I believe this book will help transform your body, your mind, and your emotions. When I do what David says, I get immediate and life transforming benefits. I am so grateful to him.

The Top 10 Superfoods... and why you need them 13 avril 2013
Par K9Jeeper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
From the author of "The Sun Food Diet Success System" author David Wolfe takes us on a global journey to bring us the good the bad and the ugly of our food. The first thing you'll notice about the cover is that the author's picture eclipses the title of the book. Couple that with the myriad of pictures (on many pages) of said author made me ask myself, "Is this Facebook or a book about food?"

Within the confines of the 342 pages, each chapter is devoted to a particular superfood. Each chapter also includes the superfood's origin, its place in history, its medicinal purpose, recipes and how to shop for them.

The old adage, "You are what you eat" really comes into play with this book. If you think about it, most (if not all) of the superfoods mentioned in this book have been consumed by human beings for centuries. So why aren't most people eating this stuff nowadays?

Basically superfoods fall into three subcategories; living raw plant foods, superfoods and superherbs. Take one look around and you will see the result of our fast food diet. More and more human beings have become overweight or obese and have been stricken with diseases that could have been avoided with a better and more nutritious diet.

Other topics covered in this book are proteins, minerals, antioxidants, good fats and oils, essential amino acids, glycol nutrients, vitamins, enzymes, co-enzymes, essential fatty acids and polysaccharides.

Wolfe asserts that too many of us live in a state of poor health, lethargy and moderate obesity. We live with back pain, headaches, inflammation, arthritis, cancer, skin problems and insomnia - they're the byproducts of our diet. This book is really designed to detoxify your body and boost your immune system. Nutrition is affected by something called acid - alkaline. With a poor diet, our bodies become a breeding ground for disease causing microbes and organisms. High acidity is usually the primary cause of being overweight because our body will store excess acids in the fat tissue which leads to cellulite and weight gain. Wolfe also asserts that when you introduce superfoods into your body, your energy level, your sex drive and stamina and your focus will improve.

I'll now give you an idea what each chapter is all about.

Chapter 1 - Goji Berries
a.k.a. Wolf berries, boxthorn, matrimony vine, and Desert Thorn

The author refers to Goji Berries (an adaptogen that aids in internal organ health) as the fountain of youth. Goji berries are most often grown in Asia but have recently been growing in North and Central America. The Chinese strongly believe that this fruit can significantly extend your life. Apparently there is a Chinese legend that speaks of a man (Li Qing Yuen) who lived to the age of 252 years from 1678 to 1930. He consumed Goji berries daily - whole or in his tea. It is also rumored that Native Americans regarded the Goji berries as an important food source. Tribes often spoke of astounding strength, agility and longevity due to a diet rich in Goji berries. The author also asserts that Goji berries will enhance her libido and sexual stamina by increasing HGH production which then facilitates an increase in testosterone production. Goji berries are also great antioxidants, they improve vision, it's an immune system booster, helps with hydration, it supports brain and neurological health, supports cardiovascular health, and it keeps vital organs healthy.

Chapter 2 - Cacao
raw chocolate

Basically it's a chocolate nut. The Cacao bean has always been and will always be Nature's #1 weight loss and high-energy food. It's a great antioxidant that includes magnesium, iron, chromium, manganese, zinc, copper, vitamin C, omega six fatty acids and the amino acid tryptophan.

Chapter 3 - Maca
"Andes Aphrodisiac" and Peruvian Ginseng

Maca is usually grown at an altitude between 9,000 and 10,000 feet and is considered the highest altitude crop on Earth. The Incas ate Maca Root over 2,600 years ago. It's known to improve the following conditions: anemia, chronic fatigue, depression, and fertility and sterility in humans and livestock, lack of libido, malnutrition, menopausal symptoms, menstrual discomfort and disorders, poor memory, stomach cancer, stress tension, and tuberculosis. Walker is also known to have quite the aphrodisiac quality the author calls it nature's answer to Viagra. One of the main reasons I bought Maca Root powder to help diminish wife's hot flashes.

Chapter 4 - Bee Products
Including honey, pollen, Royal jelly and propolis

Bee Pollen is the most complete superfood found in nature. Honey can be used topically to heal wounds and it will also has anti-biotic effects on anthrax, diphtheria, urinary tract infections, sinusitis, animal bites, pneumonia, tuberculosis, typhoid, dysentery, boils, impetigo, tooth decay, scarlet fever, sore throat and cholera to name a few. Royal Jelly is the combination of pollen and honey while propolis (meaning - "for the city") is the waxy substance that seals the hive and has a long history of medicinal, herbal and alchemical uses.

Chapter 5 - Spirulina
the protein queen
(Tecuitlatl (Aztec), Dihe (African)

Here's an ancient blue-green spiral algae that comes in more than 35 varieties and grows in freshwater lakes and waterways. Ancient civilizations consumed Sprulina for its nutrients including chlorophyll, protein, vitamins, major minerals, essential fatty acids, nucleic acids, polysaccharides and a myriad of antioxidants. It's also known to aid in healthy brain chemistry and is also an immune booster. Spirulina has as much iron as red meat.

Chapter 6 - AFA super blue-green algae
the primordial food

At least forty thousand species of microalgae phytoplankton exists. Fossil evidence indicates that they were the first organisms on Earth and are responsible for 80-90% of the planet's overall food and oxygen supply. Basically, it's a more potent version of Spirulina.

Chapter 7 - Marine Phytoplankton
the basis of all life

Improved detoxification, more loss of weight, improved memory, feeling stronger, more normal blood sugar, fewer food cravings, improved concentration, faster nervous system repair, better sleep, improved digestion, improved eyesight and better sex can all be achieved with this superfood.

Chapter 8 - Aloe Vera
Essene and Egyptian secret of immortality

Aside from treating the skin for burns, insect bites/stings, poison ivy/oak and athlete's foot, the gel of raw Aloe Vera contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, amino acids, sterols, lignins and poly saccharides. Aloe cuts and dissolves mucous in the intestines which helps increase nutrient absorption. It also reduces inflammation, radiation sickness, cancer, heart disease and helps control blood sugar. It's also an "adaptogen" which helps keep internal organs healthy.

Chapter 9 - Hempseed
superfood of the future

You say hemp, we say Marijuana. It's actually a close relative to Marijuana with much less THC. Hemp's been around for centuries - Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington grew hemp on their property. It's packed with 33 - 37% protein, it's one of nature's richest sources of complete protein.

Chapter 10 - Coconuts
the symbol of paradise

This pre-historic plant is very salt-tolerant which explains why they can grow right next to the ocean. In Sanskrit (Ancient India's language) coconut trees are known as "the tree that supplies all that is needed to live." Fresh coconut flesh, coconut water, coconut oil or coconut cream can save your life. It has one of the highest sources of electrolytes found in nature. Coconut water is nearly identical to human plasma and soldiers were known to have used it as emergency plasma for injured soldiers! Benefits include improved digestion, boosting the immune system and it can improve the utilization of blood sugar and that can lessen the symptoms of hypoglycemia.

Wolfe gives honorable mentions to Acai, Camu Camu berries, Chlorella, Inca berries, Kelp, Noni and Yacon. He does include their benefits as well.

FINAL WORDS:

At first, I was annoyed by the book because it seemed like it was all about the author. Once I started reading the book, it became quite clear that it's all about our diets and how these superfoods can and will enhance our lives. I found the book to be quite informative and each of the 10 superfoods got a detailed history and use - with interesting recipes. If not for the annoying albeit plentiful pictures, this would be a 5-star book and wonderful as a reference guide and smoothie cookbook. After all, David Wolfe is the TV spokesperson for the NutriBullet.

Of the top ten superfoods llisted above, I currently use six of them in my smoothies. I will delve into the "honorable mentioned" as well. Funny thing, after reading this book, I've Googled where the Farmer's Markets are in my neighborhood and plan to visit them a lot more often than my usual supermarkets.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in making dietary changes for better health. There really is a science to superfoods and superherbs... most of which can and WILL save and/or improve your life.

The author closes with a page on "How to Order Superfoods" - basically he asks that you visit the links via his website (davidwolfe.com) so that it will help support continued research by the author.

Health is Wealth!

NOTE: I wrote this review for Epinions.com as well.

disappointing, lacking substance 28 janvier 2012
Par Rachel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have been aware (if not "following" ) of David Wolfe's work and message for about 13 years now, and still see him first and foremost as a
lawyer and a salesman- able to slickly manipulate information for personal benefit. As an educator, this book was actually
hard to read- let's just say I winced. I would recommend it to my students as an exercise in developing discernment.

Most of the chapters came off very similar to the labels and treatises uses to sell
products at the health food store- full of exotic anecdotes about "ancient civilizations", and "historical" use of certain roots
shoots and seeds- but without impressive substance to truly distinguish them as "superfoods", aside from their potential to
dazzle and sell. Let's not forget that the author has been heavily invested in personally selling some of these "foods' for
many years now.

Certainly there is some good information in this book- but I would recommend Rebecca Wood's "New Whole Foods Encycyclopedia"
for more comprehensive reading, detailed information, and lack of bias. I would also recommend the work of Susan Smith Jones
on this subject. What "superfoods" actually ARE , are nutrient/dense foods capable of delivering a high percentage of bioavailable
essential and trace nutrients for fewer calories. In this regard, spirulina, chlorella, nutritional yeast, coconut oil- all
potential "low profit' food products - are given a less featured showcase compared to "maca" and "cacao". Products that David
Wolfe sells are raved about (again, often without the substance I would want to see as an educator) - more common nutrient dense
products are on the B list or left out altogether- like eggs, of course, which don't jibe with the author's vegan philosophy- a
philosophy with a huge potential carbon footprint, often accessible mostly to elite populations comparatively- unless you can tell
me where in your backyard YOU pick your lentils, sesame seeds, and coconuts.

More disturbing- David Wolfe stretches the truth when referring to meat and dairy intake - here is an example, parapharased,
from one of his comments on the movie "Food Matters"- sentiments echoed in this book "Meat takes a "MASSIVE amount of energy
to digest". This simply is not true. Are we seeking "super" foods to replace the concentrated nutrients available in traditional
diets composed of natural dairy, eggs and meat? Has our terribly imbalanced food system in general taken us in this direction?
I suspect so. All in all- read with discernment- compare to other sources, and
ask yourself how the rest of your diet is and why you feel the need for exotic foods.
