What is the Ital Standard? [Video]


"Ital" is a term we use in Jamaica. It has been popularized by the Rastafari community.

[Often used to describe diet,] the primary goal of adhering to an Ital diet is to increase Livity, or the life energy that Rastafari generally believe lives within all human beings, as conferred from the Almighty.

A common tenet of Rastafari beliefs is the sharing of a central Livity among living things, and what is put into one's body should enhance Livity rather than reduce it.
