So, may be Christopher Columbus knew what he was talking about when he said “Gold is the most precious of all commodities; gold constitutes treasure and he who possesses it has all he needs in this world.”
Ever heard the saying “health is everything?”
I’m sure you already know that if we don’t have it, we have absolutely nothing. Zero.
Turns out this may have escaped good, old Columbus because, while he found that precious metal he so craved, he also overlooked something known as “gold of the Incas” – a power food so sacred that the ancient Incas believed it made their warriors superhuman.
Simply put, while Columbus plundered, he also blundered. That’s because he set about destroying fields of Inca gold and made it illegal for the Indians to cultivate their precious “mother grain” or “chisaya mama.”
Well, thankfully, the “mother grain” or “gold of the Incas” survived and, today, South American Indians still consider it an essential part of their diet.
If you haven’t guessed, I’m talking about quinoa, a super food capable of helping you achieve superhuman health.
What’s so great about quinoa?
Everything, it turns out.
For starters, it has been called the ultimate power food – supplying your body with everything it needs: protein, carbohydrates, great fats, vitamins, minerals and fiber.
Just consider this list of essential elements: phosphorous, iron, copper, potassium, tryptophan, manganese, B6, thiamine, niacin and riboflavin. Moreover, it’s amino acid profile is nothing short of impressive, making it a great choice for tissue repair and growth.
When it comes to this food you can hardly afford to pull a Columbus by excluding it from your diet. So, head on out to your local heath food store where you are likely to find it in a box or in bulk.
