We all know that sunlight has the potential to power our houses through solar panels, but did you know that sunlight also powers our body?

Light is energy, but have you ever stopped to think about how our body uses the energy from the sun?  The answer is through our diet.

Green plants transform light into energy through a process called photosynthesis. The light is then stored as tiny physical units of light called biophotons.  When animals consume plant material, in addition to nutrients like vitamins and minerals, they are also consuming light.

This includes the grasses that feed our livestock, the algae that feeds our fish, and the vegetables that fuel our bodies. Plant sourced energy is light energy, which is then transformed as it moves up the food chain.

The most highly energized foods contain the most stored light in the form of biophotons; these include flowers, phytoplankton, wheat grass and chlorophyll.  Fresh, raw organic fruits and vegetables are also replete with biophotons. Cooked foods, processed foods, and meats emit little, if any light.

Humans emit light as well, and studies confirm that the more “sunlight” we consume in the form of fresh fruits and vegetables, the more light we emit.  And the more light we emit, the healthier we are.

When the summer months are over, consider increasing your intake of light energy with supplemental chlorophyll or wheat grass.
