What are some of the common whole foods taken for their high vitamin and nutrient content?
1. Brewer’s yeast contains biotin, choline, folic acid, vitamins B1, 2, 3, 5, 6 and
Inositol (which retards hardening of the arteries and helps prevent cataracts, lung and
bladder cancer and improves nerve function). Brewer’s yeast stabilizes blood sugar and
reduces insulin resistance. It also has an abundance of amino acids and minerals. It is a
wonderful source of nutrients.
2. “Green” drinks and capsules are whole food derived both from land and sea that are
excellent sources of vitamins, phytonutrients (the other “factors” in vitamin complexes)
3. Whole rice, unprocessed, contains Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, E and protein.
Unprocessed means the rice bran (the outer hull) and rice polish (the inner hull), which is
where we find that most nutrients have not been removed. The white rice that we usually
eat is the kernel, a carbohydrate.
4. Buckwheat contains lots of amino acids, plus minerals and vitamin E. The
bioflavonoid Rutin is also present.
5. Spirulina (a blue-green algae) contains about 18 amino acids, minerals, enzymes,
carotinoids and a multitudes of vitamins and anti-oxidants—all whole foods.
I suggest checking Google for whole food nutrients for more selections. Your local
health food store should also have suggestions. www.hyperhealth.com and
www.whfoods.com have been invaluable sources of information on various nutrients and
