SuperFoods: What They Can Do For You
Everyone Can Benefit From Superfoods!
A superfood contains every nutrient the body requires for optimal health and can help support most bodily functions, boost energy levels, increase stamina, endurance, and recovery time from physical activity. They also provide phytochemicals and antioxidants that science has proven help prevent many degenerative diseases.
Superfoods are found in the first link of the food chain, such as plankton which is made purely from sunlight and water, and grasses which are made from soil and sunlight. Since they are so nutrient dense, very little is required to achieve significant nutritional benefit.
Detoxify with Superfoods
One of the great benefits we can get from superfoods is detoxification. Detoxification is a process in which potentially harmful compounds are excreted. Superfoods help us detox by eliminating toxins, which can weaken our tissues and lead to disease over time.
Chlorophyll is the green pigment found in plants and algae that is said to be a good detoxifier. Historically, chlorophyll has been used to help improve many different conditions and symptoms. For example, chlorophyll may normalize constipation, freshen bad breath, and help to clear up skin problems.*
Dietary sources of superfoods rich in chlorophyll include:
- Dark green leafy vegetables
- Wheat grass
- Barley grass
Those who don’t regularly consume a variety of green foods in plentiful quantities may lack chlorophyll in their diets. Therefore, taking a high quality green food supplement that contains chlorophyll, can help you get this important nutrient, as well as others, into your diet or cleansing program.
Superfood Benefit Breakdown
Green Superfoods – Besides the detoxification benefits listed above, many green superfoods also contain Vitamin C, B vitamins, and fiber.
Sprouted Grains and Grasses – As a supplement, these are often easier to take in concentrated or powdered form. Many, such as quinoa and golden flax seed, also supply dense sources of protein, phytonutrients, and essential fatty acids.
Antioxidant Super Fruits – They come in deep shades of red, orange, purple, and blue and each offers unique antioxidant protection in the form of Vitamin C complex, resveratrol, or manganese and usually register very high ORAC values.
Plant Enzymes – Raw or freeze dried forms of fruits and vegetables contain whole-food benefits including enzymes that support digestion and other body systems.
