What are superfoods and why should I have them?
Also known as “Functional foods” for their high amount of nutrient per 100g, superfoods are ingredients (plants, meats, grains, etc.) that are packed with vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants and minerals that optimize your health. Some superfoods are well known to us, like blueberries, quinoa, and kale, and some are unknown to many, such as the Cat’s Claw plant, the Chaga mushroom and the Pau d’arco tree, various superfoods recommended by Healing Essence.
Ultimately, superfoods rejuvenate your body and are believed to prevent problems such as heart diseases, cancer and strokes. Superfoods are known to replenish your energy and to kick start your body in a natural, healthy way. Along with an overall healthy diet, superfoods can improve your well-being and your energy level.
Superfoods each have their own benefits. Some help with digestion, some stimulate and strengthen the immune system and some are believed to be healing to the body. The best part about superfoods is that a vast majority of them taste great, or have no taste, so it is easy to incorporate them in meals!
