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!
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:
- Green coffee bean
- Acerola powder
- Kakadu Plum
- Goji Berry
- Green tea
- Purple Rice
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.
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
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.
Chlorella is a freshwater algae high in amino acids, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, potassium, phosphorous, biotin, magnesium and the B-complex vitamins.
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!
The Mighty Cacao Bean
Cacao is a small tropical American evergreen tree that is mostly cultivated in West Africa, and bears bean like seeds contained in large, oval pods that grow on the trunk. It is better known to us as cocoa, cocoa butter, and chocolate. By cold-pressing raw cacao beans, a naturally powerful source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals is obtained.
Superfoods are an important addition to healthy eating by delivering antioxidants and essential nutrients to support your whole body.
