5. Ghee

If you’re unfamiliar with ghee, it’s clarified butter often used in Indian cooking. Ghee is made by simmering unsalted butter in a pot until all water has boiled off, the milk solids have settled to the bottom, and the “junk” has floated to the top. According to Dr. Vasant Lad, director of the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, N.M., traditionally, ghee has been used to promote memory, intelligence, and digestion. Modern science tells us that ghee bolsters the immune system as well. Try this kitchari recipe.

I often eat adzuki beans, but unfortunately, some of these superfoods are expensive, such as jerusalem artichokes, spirulina, and hemp seeds.

I put spirulina along with chlorella, beet root powder, milk thistle seed, flax, chia, green tea powder, MSM, moringa powder, organic red maca powder and bee pollen powder in my smoothie every morning with 1 banana, 1cup strawberries and 1 cup blueberries. I'm pretty sure I have all my bases covered. Good article, thanks
