Chews-4-Health is the FIRST and ONLY chewable sea vegetable supplement on the planet! In fact, each chewable contains the following 4 sea vegetables:

Kelp ~ Nori ~ Dulse ~ Bladderwack


Sea vegetation is considered superior to vegetables grown on land because they do not contain the genetic modification and chemicals frequently used in farming.

Sea vegetables are virtually fat-free, low in calories and offer soluble, plant based trace elements. They also contain chlorophyll and are a good source of protein.

Sea Vegetables

What are sea vegetables? Where can we get sea veggies? Listen to Dr.Friedman on this segment of The Balancing Act as he tells listeners all about them.

Hmmm... Does Chews 4 Health have sea vegetables in them? You bet they do!

Health Expert Dr. David Friedman Discusses Power of Sea Vegetables
on a Recent Episode of 'The Balancing Act'


Many of the fruits and vegetables we eat today contain only a fraction of the nutrients they contained nearly 100 years ago, making it harder than ever to fully benefit from the nine servings recommended per day. To find food that has not lost its nutritional content over time, Friedman recommends looking to the ocean.

July 22, 2009 -- Many of the fruits and vegetables we eat today contain only a fraction of the nutrients they contained nearly 100 years ago, making it harder than ever to fully benefit from the nine servings recommended per day. Dr. David Friedman, health expert on Lifetime Television's popular morning show, "The Balancing Act", recently described this problem and offered a simple solution from an unexpected source.

"The fruits and vegetables of today are really different than the ones our grandparents ate," explained Friedman on the July 20 episode of the show. "For instance, you would have to eat 26 apples today to equal the nutritional content of one apple from the year 1914, and eat 10 tomatoes to equal the nutritional content of one tomato from 1940."

To find food that has not lost its nutritional content over time, Friedman recommends looking to the ocean. .

"Sea vegetables contain over 70 whole food vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, and have the same nutritional value as they did 100 years ago. Plus, sea vegetables do not contain the pesticides and chemicals often used in the cultivation of land-based fruits and vegetables," he said.

Sea vegetables also contain the only natural vegetable source of Vitamin D on the planet, and are an excellent source of calcium. But how can we add these nutrient-rich sea vegetables to our daily diets?

"If you live in Asia these vegetables can be found in grocery stores, markets and restaurants nearly everywhere," Friedman explained. "But for Americans, you primarily have to find them in supplements. This is why the supplement I formulated, Chews-4-Health, contains four mineral-rich sea vegetables--dulse, kelp, bladderwrack and nori. My research indicates they help nourish, strengthen and revitalize the body."

Friedman is a renowned chiropractic physician and doctor of naturopathy, author of three books and creator of the best-selling CD, "America's Unbalanced Diet." The product he formulated is a delicious, natural, chewable dietary supplement derived from 16 of the world's most nutrient-rich sources from land and sea.

Quote from Dr. Friedman:
" For instance, you would have to eat 26 apples today to equal the nutritional content of one apple from the year 1914, and eat 10 tomato equal the nutritional content of one tomato from 1940."

CHLOROPHYLL - tell me more ...

Chlorophyll is the green pigment found in higher plants, as well as algae. Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that harnesses the sun's energy in photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is to plants what blood is to humans.
Stacks Image 1763

Chlorophyll is present in all plants, even though the content may vary depending on species, plant parts or growth stage. Chlorophyll is abundant in leafy vegetables and generally to a lesser extent in fruits.

Chlorophyll and its derivatives are known to have antioxidant activity.

Consumption of leafy vegetables, rich in chlorophyll and chlorophyll derivatives such as chlorophyllin, is associated with reduced risks of certain types of cancers. Therefore, consumption of chlorophyll-rich diet could prevent or delay the onset of certain diseases such as cancer that manifest with aging and are induced by free radicals.

WHAT ARE PHYTOCHEMICALS OR PHYTONUTRIENTS?

The term "phyto" originated from a Greek word meaning plant. Phytonutrients are certain organic components of plants which have been shown to "promote human health*
The term "phytochemicals" refers to a wide variety of compounds produced by plants. They are found in fruits, vegetables, beans, grains, and other plants. Some of the more commonly known phytochemicals include beta carotene, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), folic acid, and vitamin E.

Are 'phytochemicals' good for you? The answer is "
YES!"

Phytochemicals are promoted for the prevention and treatment of many health conditions, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. There is some evidence that certain phytochemicals may help prevent the formation of potential cancer-causing substances (carcinogens), block the action of carcinogens on their target organs or tissue, or act on cells to suppress cancer development. Many experts suggest that people can reduce their risk of cancer significantly by eating more fruits, vegetables, and other foods from plants that contain phytochemicals.

“The thousands of vitamins, minerals, and beneficial plant compounds called phytochemicals in whole foods act synergistically together to create a more powerful effect than the sum of their parts, producing a result which cannot be recreated by supplements.”

WHY MINERALS ARE SO IMPORTANT -
Stacks Image 1767

Land plants take carbon dioxide out of the air and make vitamins, amino acids and fatty acids. However, plants can not make minerals and, therefore, have to rely on getting minerals from the soil. When Farmers fertilize their fields with only the minimal nutrients needed to grow a crop, this can leave the soil devoid of many vital minerals needed by the body.

Our Sea Vegetable blend contains up to 70 naturally occurring plant source minerals from A to Z.
Sea Vegetables provide a rich source of minerals in the vegetable kingdom because they don’t rely on land soil but have access to the abundance of minerals found in the ocean.
Stacks Image 1768

The human body doesn’t naturally create the minerals it requires. For that reason, diet and supplementation are key, however, most of today’s “convenience foods” lack the minerals essential for energy production, protection from free radical damage and the support of other vital body functions.

DULSE

Stacks Image 1769
Seaweed and sea vegetables are quite common in Japanese and Asian cuisine, but much less so in the American market, except where health food is concerned. The health community has long been aware of the healthy and nutritional properties and benefits of various types of seaweed and sea vegetables, and many varieties have been sold in health food stores for many years.

Dulse is one such seaweed that is also frequently consumed in Canada, Ireland, and Northern European countries, and is an excellent source of important vitamins and nutrients. It is a source of non-animal protein.

As for its nutritional content, dulse is extremely high in vitamins B6 and B12, as well as iron, potassium and fluoride. It is relatively low in sodium. Dulse also contains other vitamins and nutrients, including vitamins C, E, and A,, magnesium, calcium, dietary fiber and protein. It is a natural source of iodine, essential for thyroid gland health and thyroid hormone secretion. It is rich with trace minerals from sea elements.

KELP

Kelp is a variety of seaweed that can be found on rocky shores throughout the world. It is a natural food source with a long list of nutrients.

These include over 70 minerals and trace elements, growth hormones, vitamins, enzymes, and proteins which include iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron.

Because it is a rich source of iodine, it supports the proper functioning of the thyroid. It is also a good source of protein with the iron content assisting with the body's blood cell function.

BLADDERWACK

Stacks Image 1772
Bladderwrack is a type of brown algae (seaweed) that grows on the northern Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the United States and on the northern Atlantic coast and Baltic coast of Europe. The main stem of bladderwrack, known as the thallus, is used medicinally. The thallus has tough, air-filled pods or bladders to help the algae float—thus the name bladderwrack.


Traditionally, bladderwrack's main stem or thallus is used as an anti-inflammatory agent. It is said to soothe the irritated tissues of the body.

Because of its rich iodine content, it is known for its curative effects on hypothyroidism. For years now, people who live in villages near the sea, has always been known to have low rates of hypothyroidism.

In the past, it has also been used as a laxative. Maybe that's why it is also used against obesity since this seaweed is known for its stimulus of the thyroid glands.

Recent studies have proved this true, as bladderwrack have amazing weight loss-inducing qualities. Of course, like all alternative medicines, there still has to be a lot of research done to qualify the healing effects of bladderwrack.

NORI

Nori is part of a "beauty diet"--rich in protein and low in cholesterol. It is also part of a "healthy diet"--abundant in vitamins and minerals. It is especially good for growing children, with excellent medical value because it contains a substance that lowers cholesterol, helping to prevent arteriosclerosis.

The amount of nutrition contained in nori is the highest among seaweeds,
and nori contains as much protein as soybeans. Nori also contains vitamins and minerals such as iron and calcium as well as EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and fiber, which are necessary for maintaining good health.

Nori contains 12 kinds of vitamins including group A and B vitamins. Nori is called
"The Reservoir of Vitamins" because few other foods are as much in vitamins as nori has. Nori contains more vitamins than fruits and vegetables.

Vitamin A
Vitamin B1 and B2
Vitamin C --Nori has twice the vitamin C as the same amount of tangerines do
Iron

A third of a nori sheet consists of good quality dietary fiber. Nori includes almost all the mineral elements, which are used effectively in our body. SeNori contains as much protein as soybeans, the "Meat of the Field." This protein is of very good quality that is easy to digest.
