Superfoods: All the nutrients - none of the hassle

Superfoods: All the nutrients - none of the hassle | Mr Vitamins
Science is catching up with what indigenous and native people around the world have known instinctively for centuries... The health benefits of Superfoods are, quite simply - amazing!

Why Superfoods?

Superfoods nourish your whole body, providing nutrients that you may be deficient in due to illness, poor diet, or inferior nutrient content in soils. Making Superfoods a part of your daily diet is a super smart choice. By definition, Superfoods are a group of foods that are packed with nutrients.  They hold large doses of polyphenols, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and are also a remarkable source of essential nutrients.

So what is a Superfood?

There are hundreds of foods that are classified as Superfoods for their various health-giving properties including:

A Powerful Shield against Chemicals and Pollutants

Superfoods are high in antioxidants, which help reduce the risk of free radical damage to your body’s cells and tissues. This damage occurs due to exposure to chemicals from daily living and your normal body processes. For example, the berries, acai, pomegranate and red grapes are rich in the antioxidant anthocyanidin and green tea and cocoa are natural sources of flavanols*. These amazing ingredients help boost your body’s antioxidant defences, protecting you from chemicals that you come in contact with daily. Superfoods also contain a vast array of beneficial substances, sometimes known as phytochemicals.

Here are some other important inclusions for your diet

Super Seaweeds

Spirulina, a well-known blue-green algae is naturally rich in nutrients, and contains up to 70%. protein, B complex vitamins, the antioxidant phycocyanin, chlorophyll, betacarotene, vitamin E and numerous minerals.

The Incas were on to Something Big

Quinoa is an ancient grain-like plant, which was sacred to the Incas for very good reason - it delivers all the essential amino acids in perfect balance plus magnesium, manganese, folic acid and potassium although they probably had no idea about this at the time! Cacao Beans

The Mighty Cacao Bean

Cacao is a small tropical American evergreen tree that is mostly cultivated in West Africa, and bears beanlike seeds contained in large, oval pods that grow on the trunk. It is better knon to us as cocoa, cocoa butter, and chocolate. By cold-pressing unroasted cacao beans, a naturally powerful source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals is obtained.

Amazing Acai Berries – (A-sigh-ee)

Acai is an Amazonian berry that is naturally rich in anthocyanins as well as various vitamins and minerals. Superfoods are an important addition to healthy eating by delivering antioxidants and essential nutrients to support your whole body.
