What are superfoods?
Simply put, superfoods are nutrient rich foods that grow in nature. Foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, plants and mushrooms. They are rich in micronutrients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which serve the body.
Studies have shown superfoods to be effective for curing and preventing disease, as well as improving or reversing serious health conditions such as cancer, heart disease, arthritis and chronic inflammation.
Superfoods have also been shown to boost immunity, up lift energy, repair tissue, lower blood sugar, cholesterol and reduce stress.
Here are some favorite superfoods for women:
- Bee Pollen
- Chia Seeds
- Goji berries
Why choose a superfood powder?
We are what we eat, and what we put into our bodies is fuel.
In a busy world of balancing play dates, pick-ups, drop offs, messy kitchens and picky eaters time is of the essence. Superfoods are usually dehydrated, highly nutritious and packaged in easy convenient ways to carry with you or take at home.
We always recommend superfoods in powder form because the nutrients will go straight to your bloodstream. They’re fast, painless and they taste a lot better than many of the whole food superfoods out there.
I’m sure you would agree that most moms are supermoms. It’s a daunting, complex and demanding job to raise children – surely there is no greater risk.
And as you continue to be the supermom you are, you inherently take on more and more workload which leaves you drained and with less time… Thank goodness we have superfoods.
