A Q&A with David Wolfe

Question: What are superfoods?

David Wolfe: Superfoods are the greatest foods identified by the greatest civilizations in the history of the world. They are foods that have a whole array of tricks under their sleeve. They are extremely easy to use and believe numerous different body types and metabolisms.

Question: What contributions are you making on the planet? What are you here to share with us?

David Wolfe: My goal is to make raw foods, superfoods, superherbs, and the best chocolate ever an option for everyone in the world. I wish to make becoming healthy simpler, easier, and more fun than ever before.

Question: Tell us about the goji berry. What is in it? How about the cacao bean? What is in cacao? Isn’t this the food that we make chocolate out of?

David Wolfe: The goji berry is a complete protein source with unusual levels of antioxidants, levels of carotenes (according to studies, the more carotenes you eat, the longer you live) which were shown to be present in primates. The goji berry is easy to eat for people of all ages. It also assists with the digestion of other food. It is regarded as the number one medicinal herb in Chinese medicine–which has a 5,000 year history of about 8,000 herbs. It improves our ability to secrete HGH naturally and it the only food known to take action.

Cacao has a higher concentration of magnesium, chromium, iron, and antioxidants than any food on the planet. Cacao is also exceedingly rich in copper, zinc, and manganese. Cacao contains fat-soluble forms of all of these minerals, which is atypical. Research has proven this food is associated with longevity. The cacao bean is chocolate, chocolate is cacao–you cannot have chocolate without cacao. Basically, chocolate is a nut butter made out of cacao beans. Chocolate contains PEAs, chemicals associated with falling in love, anandamide, the bliss chemical, and theobromine, which improves our cardiovascular health. Contrary to some opinions, cacao is very low in caffeine.
