Angiogenesis is the body’s natural process of growing new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels for healing and reproduction. However, if the natural balance is disturbed, it produces abnormal blood vessel growth, either excessive or insufficient, and is recognized as a common denominator shared by a myriad of diseases that includes all cancers, cardiovascular disease, obesity, arthritis, blindness, complications of AIDS, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and dozens of other major health conditions.

The best way to prevent angiogenesis problems from starting in our bodies is to replace a poor diet, which is the origin of many angiogenesis issues, with a Super health Diet. We must add to our diets the foods that boost the body’s defense system and essentially eat right to prevent angiogenesis, including its profound feeding of fat in obesity. Fat is angiogenesis-dependent, and angiogenesis inhibitors directly result in weight loss and inhibit the development of fat.

The good news is there are numerous foods and supplements that have been shown to have significant antiangiogenesis properties. Interestingly, the same foods also have antioxidation, anti-inflammation, anti-glycation, and antiangiogenic properties. Plus, research has shown a miraculous synergy in food/nutrient combinations to be more po- tent than any one by itself, which has been my philosophy of Superfood Nutrition from the beginning. Living Fuel Functional Superfoods have been lab tested to be a potent regulator/inhibitor of all four of these processes, and I do not know of any other food or product that can make that claim.
