Raw living foods are whole and unprocessed and therefore they contain their full range of natural vitamins, minerals and nutrients in their natural form. These living foods are complete with all the enzymes necessary to turn food into energy that the body can readily use.

Studies have proven that when food is heated above 45 degrees Celsius, the enzymes in food begin to be affected. Once food is heated to over 50 degrees, 100% of the enzymes are destroyed, 70-80% of the vitamins are no longer apparent and the ability to assimilate protein is reduced by 50%. Furthermore, at these high temperatures, pesticides and fungicides begin to break down and form toxic compounds in the body, which increases free radical production and escalates the possibility of illness and disease.

Cooked, processed and flesh foods also require the pancreas to produce additional enzymes for digestion which places stress on the body and yields less overall energy for the body to use. Therefore it makes sense that the closer food remains to its natural state, the more energy it contains, making it easier for the body to identify, digest and assimilate nutrients and use this energy for the regeneration of cells, tissues, blood and bones.

Raw living food exists at its optimal peak and is a brilliant prescription for health and longevity. Studies have shown that people who eat a high percentage of living and organic food are free from most illnesses, have greater mental clarity and higher overall energy levels. A study of long-term raw foodists found that prior to being raw, 53% reported getting colds and flues. After going raw, this dropped to only 3%. Digestive issues decreased from 73% to 22%, body odor and bad breath disappeared and sensory functions were reported as being heightened. 81% of participants reported feeling better mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

People who have been eating a high percentage of cooked, processed and flesh foods throughout their lives may initially feel the detoxification effects more strongly when switching to a live food diet. Even increasing the percentage of raw foods in your diet can cause the body to display cleansing and detox symptoms. The human body however is innately intelligent and when introduced to a higher intake of living foods, it very rapidly begins to restore the body to a more natural state of equilibrium. Once the stored toxins have been released from the body, you will soon experience a light, joyous and vibrant way of being that is our natural birthright.
