A Treasure Trove of Nutrients
The Holy Grail of nutrition was a potent vegetable source of calcium, iron and vitamin B-12. It was there all the while in Hydrilla verticillata.
Hydrilla verticillata is a rooted fresh water plant that grows abundantly in lakes and streams of Florida. It possesses astonishingly high values of calcium, iron and vitamin B-12, nutrients often dangerously low in pure vegetarian (vegan) diets. Hydrilla has about three times more beta-carotene than chlorella and is rich in most B-vitamins too.
Hydrilla verticillata hyperaccumulates calcium from the calcium-rich soils underlying rivers and lakes in Florida. The plant is 13% or more calcium by weight after it is dried. That means one level tablespoon of powder weighing 4.75 grams delivers 624 mg. to more than 700 mg. of elemental calcium in a highly bioavailable form complexed with proteins, carbohydrates and other food factors in the plant.
Vitamin B-12, Iron and Calcium are commonly supplied by animal foods (e.g. milk, cheese, meats). Those three nutrients are responsible for maintaining mental health (cognition, attention span, neuronal life), for delivery of oxygen to cells, and for the maintenance of strong bones and resilient connective tissue. Adequate amounts of B-12, iron and calcium are difficult to obtain in vegan diets. Hydrilla verticillata is, therefore, a strong guardian of optimum health for vegans and omnivores alike. In addition, Hydrilla’s high beta-carotene delivers more anti-oxidant, anti-aging, anti-pollution protection than nearly all other foods, and the rich content of B-vitamins fuels metabolism and protects nerve tissue.
Hydrilla verticillata’s nutrient density and bland taste make it a food of great value to everyone – especially vegans and other classes of vegetarians. It can be used extensively in the same way as yeast flakes mixed into beverages, sauces, and salad dressings; sprinkled on salads and cooked into vegetable dishes to improve the nutritional value of nearly any prepared food.
Hydrilla verticillata is a rooted fresh water plant renowned for nutrient density and bland taste. Its high value of calcium and vitamin B12 (among others) makes it a food of special value to vegans, other types of vegetarians, and anyone seeking improved nutrition.
