The level of biophotons in food should perhaps be the true measure of food quality and benefits.

Biophotons are minute particles of light, which are stored and used by all living organisms, including humans and plants.

The types of food that contain the highest amount of biophotons are primarily organically grown or wild-crafted live foods, including leafy vegetables and sun-ripened fruits, as well as raw nuts and seeds. 

The higher the level of biophoton emissions in any given food, the greater will be their vitality and capacity to transfer those sun nutrients to the human body.

Thus, when we eat these food sources in their raw and uncooked state, the stored sunlight finds its way into our cells in the form of biophotons. 

The Biophoton Field

Human health obviously depends on the physical aspects of the body, including food, sleep, exercise, and so forth. But it also depends on non-physical levels of energy, such as the light energy field that emits from the human body and most living organisms.

According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, “In highly simplistic terms, your biophoton field can be viewed as a highly sophisticated computer that processes, stores and retrieves information that is then used to regulate your biological processes.”

Importance of Biophotons in Humans

According to Prof. A. Popp and Dr. H. Niggli, biophotons contain important information that controls complex vital process in the human body. 

Dr. Popp revealed that the DNA is an importance source of biophoton emission, which he was able to measure with a device called a biophoton meter. 

He found that 97 percent of DNA is associated with biophoton transmission and only 3 percent is filled with genetic information.

The healthiest people had the highest amount of biophoton emission and the sickest people had the lowest amount, according to Dr. Popp.

Biophotons Facilitate Cell Communication

Experimental studies have also shown that biophotons are not only important within individual cells but are integral to the communication network of cells within the entire body.

Dr. Joanna Budwig--who has degrees in physics, biochemistry, medicine and pharmacology, as well as in-depth knowledge of quantum mechanics—has concluded from her extensive research that the energy we absorb from biophotons acts as an anti-aging factor.

Budwig states that live foods act as solar-resonant fields in the body to attract, store and conduct the sun’s energy in our bodies.

She theorizes that the photons of sunlight are attracted by sun-like electrons that resonate in our bodies. 

She also stated that people who eat primarily refined, cooked, or highly processed food diminish the amount of solar electrons energizing their bodies.

High to Low Sources of Biophotons in Food

In general, eating plant-based whole fresh foods will provide the most biophotons. Significantly higher levels of biophotons have been found in organically grown and wild-harvested food, but also differences have been found in relation to location, ripeness and freshness of the food.

High to low sources of biophotons in food:

  • Fruits
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Green leaves
  • Roots, bulbs and tubers
  • Grains
  • Milk and milk products
  • Meat and fish

Sunlight nutrition is essential for human health. In fact, light is the essential element from which all life originates and is energized.

FINALLY!!! I have been wondering about this for years with no 'solid' answer. This is exactly what I've been wanting to know! Thank you for this share..." by Andy

"Thank you for the information, Nancy. I appreciate it. Your article and findings are very helpful,  referring to dehydration." -  Carolyn

"Lemon water is one drink both my wife and I can't drink. It upsets our stomachs. We are in our sixties and in very good healthwell, better health now that we drink about 2 liters plus of water each day. It has made so much difference to our digestive systems and recovery every day. Thank you for your website and effort." - Rod
