What the heck are superfoods?

Maybe you’ve heard the term, but you’re not exactly sure what makes a food so super— simply explained, SUPERFOODS are foods that a SUPER good for you! They’re nutrient dense foods-power foods, medicinal plants, if you will! These are natures perfect foods to help us thrive. The purpose of superfoods are to provide the high-powered nutrient density that we no longer get from our usual meals. 

A few examples are:

  1. Moringa- this is actually a tree which grows in Senegal, country in West Africa. The leaves of the mornings tree have 7x the amount of Vitamin C in oranges, 4x the calcium and double the protein in milk, and 3x the potassium in banana. They contain powerful antioxidants, too.
  2. Maca– is a plant native to Peru. Maca is a cruciferous vegetable and therefore related to broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and kale. It is a good source of carbs, is low in fat and contains a fair amount off fiber. It’s also high in essential vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, copper and iron. Maca has been found to increase libido in men and women, improve symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes and disrupted sleep at night. Several studies have shown that maca can enhance your mood and it may improve learning and memory.
  3. Gogi Berries– their history as a medicinal plant has roots in ancient China. Many people use goji berries to treat eye, liver, and kidney issues. Goji berries are a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, fiber, iron, vitamin A, zinc, antioxidants. Gogi berries also contain all eight essential amino acids. A 1-ounce serving provides nearly 10% of your daily value for protein. For fruit, this is an impressive amount of protein.
  4. Chorella– The one may seem weird to consume. It is a single-celled, green freshwater algae. But, chlorella is very nutritious! It contains protein (most people think of meat a the primary source of protein, I hope your starting to see the trend, plants have protein too!) and it’s also a complete portion source which means it contains all 9 essential amino acids. It have vitamin B-12, iron ,vitamin C, omega-3’s and fiber. Chorella’s tiny green cells also provide a wide range of antioxidants and other vitamins and minerals, plus it can bind to heavy metals, aiding detox and could strengthen your immune system.
  5. Camu camu– this is a reddish-purple cherry-like fruit that grows in the Amazon rainforest. It is one of the highest potent natural fruit sources of vitamin C which is critically important to our ability to defend ourselves from disease. Lots of people rely on a typical store-bought supplement, a pill or a capsule that isolates ascorbic acid. But this is one of the many superfoods that contain incredibly high levels of the vitamin, and in a form that is immediately accessible to our bodies.

As I’m sure you’re aware, these are not in your typical produce section at your local grocery store — it would be cool if they were, but most not. Superfoods are found globally, and the majority are exotic…at least to us. Some in Third World Countries where they use herbs & plants (aka superfoods) to make people healthier.

So, I don’t know about you, but I can’t squeeze time into my #busymomlife schedule to travel the world & gather up all these rare foods for me and my family. BUT…I know somebody that can…

Is name is Darin Olien — you may recognize his name from that new Netflix series, Down to Earth with Zac Efron (you can follow @zacdowntoearth HERE)— He is THE SUPERFOOD HUNTER! He has dedicated his entire life to traveling the world in search of the best quality, purest, straight from the source superfoods. He involves himself in every aspect, he goes to the farms, inspects where & how the plants grow, who grows them and even who harvest them. Darin doesn’t deal with brokers or processors or commercial suppliers who sell ingredients in bulk because he knows the people who actually grow it, the farmers were probably getting screwed — Talk about FAIR TRADE! He’s even involved in the processing of these superfood I order to retain their nutrients and antioxidants. “Doing it over way is a lot of work, and it cost more. But you have to do what’s right to maintain the innate nutrition of the food. If you are about quality, there is no other way”Superlife: The 5 simple fixes that will make you healthy, fit, and eternally awesome by Darin Olien.

Most superfoods come in a powder form which makes if A LOT easier to get your hands on, thank goodness — If you’re like me, you’re excited and immediately jump on Amazon to find these superfoods & have them shipped directly to your door…but there are sooooo many different options that leave you wondering, “which one is best??” So, before you hop on Amazon or run out to your local health food store to find these amazingly beneficial superfood supplements (which would cost you lost of $$ btw), do your research. It’s hard to know which specific products and companies are worthy & don’t really deliver what they promised. There’s no way to tell what you’re getting. If quality matters to you, if ethical companies that insist on suppling pure matters to you, if unadulterated products matter to you…Look no further, the Superfood Hunter, the guru himself created a supplement that is easily available. You can check out Darin’s superfood formula called Shakeology HERE. As you would expect, it’s nothing short of being the purest, highest quality, intelligently processed with care, high-powered nutrient dense superfood ingredients on the planet.

TIP:
When buying products, make sure to purchase from companies that sell clean, healthy supplements.
