MBG Plant Based Nutrition: Why & How

  • Plant Based Nutrition (means 90% or more plants, 10% or less from animal or processed foods) –
    • The biggest nutritional study ever done proves 90% PBN to be the healthiest & most natural way for us to eat. 90% PBN can reverse disease and bring greatest health, energy and vitality. The China Study research of over 750,000 people around the world proved this! Eating a diet of over 10% animal or processed foods led to the 5 major diseases today (cancer, stroke, heart disease, stroke, arthritis).
    • 90% PBN means just that, eat mostly greens & colorful vegetables, raw nuts & seeds, berries, some strong starches (sweet potatoes, wild rice), and no added sugar….the 10% or less can be from animal or processed foods.
    • Basically keep this in mind while following a Plant Based plan: Eat enough to support exercise, but not gain body fat…simple rule of thumb is eat only when hungry, only til satisfied.

Aquaponics is a new branch of environmentally safe and self-sustainable agriculture that has seen its popularity explode over the last decade. Aquaponics is a soilless food production system that combines traditional aquaculture with hydroponics in a closed-loop environment. Simply put, the waste accumulated in the aquaculture is recycled and used as fertilizer in the hydroponics system allowing for the healthy, efficient growing and harvesting of fresh fruit and vegetable produce and fresh fish simultaneously! The fruits, vegetables, herbs and fish raised in an aquaponics system are 100% organic, chemical/pesticide free, GMO free, and, most of all, of the highest possible quality.

About Global Aquaponics Inc:
We started our company with a mission to improve the quality of life by addressing the world’s food issues and attacking these issues in an way that is economical and healthy for households, farmers and companies. The management team remains steadfast in providing an aquaponics solution that is both economically viable and environmentally sustainable. The team of engineers and scientists at Global Aquaponics Inc. have conducted a number of feasibility studies for aquaponics systems all over the world and have also built a number of aquaponics systems in the U.S. Our systems can produce 250 tons of fresh produce per acre, benefiting from over 40 years of our expertise and design refinements. For more information on our current systems and an in-depth look at the science and technology behind the aquaponics process, visit our website at
