Both my parents are fairly health-minded people and take various supps. One in particular, “Superfood” is a vitamin & herb supplement that contains:
Spirulina blue-green algae, chlorella, broken-cell algae, barley, alfalfa and wheat grasses, purple dulse seaweed, beet root, spinach leaf, rose hips, orange & lemon peels in a base of non-fermentable sacchoromyces cervisiae yeast
Now I honestly don’t know what that last thing is, but from what I’ve read by Andrew Weils, Knull, atkins, and other various hollistic doctors books, it seems like a decent product. BUT, on the back label it shows 1/2 gram of unsaturated fat. and O% for the daily value of fat (sat./unsat.) I wasn’t at all suprised at this, based on what the ingredients are. Then when I went on to read the back it claimed the following:
“Superfood is a rich source of heart protective Omega 3, Omega 6 and other Essential Fatty Acids.”
Is there any way this could be true? In other words shouldn’t a person interested in a healthy/balance diet be getting there Omega’s and efa’s from fish, flax, nuts, cla, ect.
