Incorporating superfoods into your diet can be a little intimidating for some, but they are a quick and easy way to get some much-needed nutrients into our bodies. With so many products and claims out there, stepping into the realm of eating superfoods is often confusing. Often, people ask questions like, “How much is this going to cost? Do they taste good? Which ones should I use? Why do I need them anyway?”
To answer all of these questions, we can tell you that superfoods are great for our bodies and our world, and they are all natural, giving our body some of the essential nutrition it craves. Most superfoods are often non-GMO and organic which means they come from hardworking farmers that take care of their crops and the earth using more sustainable methods.
Here’s our top superfoods list:
- Chia Seeds
Once the food of Incan warriors, chia seeds are a do-it-all super seed because they contain high amounts of omega fatty acids, which are healthy for brain function, and have also been proven to be good for your heart by fighting high cholesterol and heart disease. They are even full of nutrients like fiber, protein, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, iron, calcium and antioxidants. Many health stores and even Amazon sell them, but you can also buy them from our store here.
- Coconut Oil
If you are exercising for weight loss or looking for a good fat to incorporate into your diet, then coconut oil is the right superfood ingredient for you. It has become a staple in many countries and is being used in more foods and recipes than ever before, so finding it is easy. Our online shop has some of the most high-quality and ethically made coconut oil products on the market.
- Flaxseeds (Linseed)
Rather than ask what flaxseeds can do, better to ask what they can’t do. Yes, they are also full of omega fatty acids, however, they are known to play a huge part in proper cardiovascular function and immune system health, brain function, joint function, soft skin, and the fiber in flax even eliminates toxins from your body. Try incorporating a tablespoon of flax seed or flaxseed oil into your smoothies to get these incredible benefits!
- Goji Berries
One of the tastiest treats, goji berries are known for their healing strength. They are packed full of amino acids and more than 20 vitamins and minerals. Asian cultures have used them to strengthen eyesight, fight against viruses, balance hormones, and even for longevity. You can buy them here.
Last but not least, a green superfood like spirulina is incredible for your health. It’s made from algae and is packed full of protein and omega fatty acids. For anyone taking on the challenge to eat vegetarian or vegan, should definitely add at least one to two teaspoons of spirulina into their diet. Our online store carries different green superfood powders and spirulina energy balls that we personally use and love.
