HOW HEALTHY IS SUPERFOOD?

From chia seeds to maca powder, foods that are considered superfood are on everyone's lips - in the truest sense of the word. Their promises are big: superfood should make you more beautiful, healthier and happier. But what about the turbo food? What do they think and what do we have to do to make them effective?

First of all, the regular intake of superfood - especially in combination with a high-quality natural diet plus healthy lifestyle with enough sleep and exercise in the fresh air - can enhance your diet and help you feel better.

WHAT EXACTLY IS SUPERFOOD?

A scientific definition of so-called superfood does not exist so far. This generally refers to plant-based, natural foods that are packed with nutrients - vitamins, minerals, proteins, healthy fatty acids and phytochemicals. They are considered to be the source of natural antioxidants that protect our cells from free radicals. In addition, they strengthen the immune system and the cardiovascular system, detoxify the body, have anti-inflammatory and help increase energy, balance and good humor. Many good reasons to enrich your own diet with superfood!

Featured super foods include acai and goji berries, maca powder and chia seeds . Now you may think that this can be quite expensive in the long run, because the exotic berries or powder have a high price. But it is actually cheaper - we tell you how.

 

MORE THAN GOJI AND CO.

Superfood is more than Goji and Co. This actually includes all fruits and vegetables and nuts. Kale, for example, is a true anti-aging wonder weapon. A single serving supplies your daily requirement of vitamin C. The substances in the superfood heat up the fat metabolism.. They also have an antibacterial effect.

Other super foods include algae and sprouts, avocados , aronia and blueberries , tigernuts, cereal and quinoa , hemp seed, ginger and cinnamon , cocoa , coconut and walnuts , linseed, moringa and physalis.

You can incorporate different superfood items into your food without putting too much strain on your wallet. Color rules will help you here: Green food such as the leafy vegetables, spinach, chard and herbs provides a significant plus in secondary plant compounds, vitamins, minerals, trace elements and, above all, chlorophyll. Even bright red or orange foods such as pomegranates, blueberries or carrots have superfood properties and should have a firm place in your diet.

 

TREAT YOURSELF TO THE FRESHNESS KICK - BEST DAILY!

Use organic products in the foods you use because they are less polluting. Pay attention to variety and strong colors, shop seasonally and regionally - the fresher the food, the more the valuable nutrients in it. It is better to use herbs and spices in your cooking.

Use gentle cooking methods as often as possible, because many valuable nutrients are sensitive to heat - for example, vitamin C or chlorophyll. In addition, you should take a lot of raw food, enriched with nuts and seeds - that gives you vitality with pure power! Carrots and tomatoes, as well as potatoes, eggplant, some mushrooms and legumes, however, should be cooked to develop their nutrients.

Your superfood increases the general well-being, strengthens the eyesight and hormone balance, slows the aging process of the cells, makes a beautiful skin, and...

..It's delicious - so go for it.
