      Aging gracefully is at first a state of mind and a state of wellbeing. Your health is the most important gauge of wellbeing. Without exceptional health, your quality of life is compromised.

Maybe that is why they call it a diet in the first place?  If we endeavor to consume  enzyme-rich, nutrient-rich, Live Sprouts our cells will thrive…and isn’t that the foundation for exceptional health?
