You need optimal nutrition for optimal performance, enough of the right fuel in your tank to make a succesful journey. As you may have guessed, we’re talking raw food nutrients in addition to a diet that is right for you. Rocket Fuel is not a product, it’s one of seven clever moves you can make to improve and maintain good health, that’s what our approach is all about.
Particularly with micronutrients, if you body doesn’t have enough, then it is forced to borrow from Peter to pay Paul i.e. prioritise one nutrient-dependent function over another. This is useful, functional adaptation for when scarcity is incidental. But if you make it the trend, then there will be trouble ahead.

The dietary error with micronutrients is that most people simply do not ingest enough of them. The most common error with macronutrients is the proportions and types of protein, carbs and fats. The most pervasive dietary error is our total sugar load.
For macronutrients a few basic guidelines put this into practical perspective, take them to heart and you won’t go far wrong. For micronutrients we suggest that you join our mailing list to get very practical tips and videos about how to make ingesting raw foods sustainable i.e. pleasant and easy, and what you should add to make your smoothie infinitely more health promoting. Nutrients that lower c-reactive protein or power up your immune system to see to aberrant cells. It’s not difficult to do.
We’ll talk about whether to smoothie or to juice, and when you might be doing both. There’s lots of information on the internet, yards of books on diet or nutrition in the library. Doesn’t it just become time consuming, complicated and not a little frustrating because one book says this and a web page says that. For over thirty two years Han van de Braak BSc LicAc MCSP MBAcC (Retd) has advocated raw foods but he has seen patients start this and stop it (and not because it didn’t help). The key to successful Rocket Fuelling is to apply the 80/20 rule and keep it doable and affordable:
|Ingredient||Why it goes in to help you||Cost|
|Probiotic liquid||Promotes absorption digestion immune system||Negligible if DIY|
|Aloeride||Promotes absorption digestion immune system; unique spectrum of nutrients||Multipack discounts|
|Clean raw vegetables||Nutrients and antioxidants||Cheapest at market|
|Clean ripe fruits||Nutrients and antioxidants||Cheapest at market|
|Herbs and/or Spices||Unique nutrients and antioxidants||Low as use little|
Some people really love the health benefits of raw food nutrients but they’re so busy that they simply cannot cram making juicing or smoothies into their schedule. At Aloeride HQ we’ve gone through phases like that many a time! For a few decades now, the van de Braak family has taken Juice Plus Premium (for stress-exposed mum and dad) and Juice Plus (no orthodontic braces, no caries, happier hormones, better school results and very healthy daughters).
