What are they and super foods?
Superfoods or superfoods are foods that contain a large amount of nutrients and in a much higher concentration than any other food. These nutrients are vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals. The superfood is the healthy option to all the chemical additives, preservatives, fats and toxins that populate modern ready meals. Unlike these, superfoods only have healthy and enriching nutrients to provide the body.
Superfoods have been part of the human diet for centuries, but only in recent years has the scientific community recognized their value. These are foods that provide many health benefits and, therefore, should be included in our daily diet.
What are they for?
Superfoods are often rich in vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, and calcium. In addition, they contain essential fatty acids that the body has difficulty producing on its own and therefore needs to take in from external sources. These fatty acids help maintain good health by supporting cardiovascular function and lowering cholesterol levels. They also contribute to the development of cognitive skills in both children and adults.
Some superfoods have antioxidant properties that help protect cells from free radicals. This helps improve overall health as it prevents diseases caused by oxidative stress in the body's systems.
Why buy super foods?
A well fed and nourished body is the best weapon to deal with diseases, viruses and bacteria that circulate around us without us realizing it.
There are natural sources of super foods, while we also have supplements that have the exact dose of each nutrient that is sought to be incorporated through a healthy diet.
In the case of natural foods, we detail below: cocoa, chia and hemp seeds, coconut, algae, matcha tea, goji berries, flax seeds and camu camu.
In the case of shakes and food supplements , we have a wide variety to offer, among which we highlight the following:
- Barley Grass: it is an extract of barley in which all the vitamins and minerals that this plant contains can be used. Among its benefits we find adequate muscle and body oxygenation in general.
- Shake with Vitamin D: in addition to having antioxidant properties, this vitamin strengthens the immune system, making us more resistant to biological threats. In turn, this vitamin leads the body to absorb calcium more quickly and effectively. It is a strengthening nutrient for bones, heart, nervous system and muscles. In addition, it also provides fiber.
- Vitality Blends: These blends include an average of 12 nutrients so the consumer can get the maximum benefit from each. These shakes are the perfect answer for those times of training when we realize that we have lost all the energy and really need it to train both aerobically and anaerobically.
- Mental Shakes: due to the lack of gluten and plant-based components, these preparations are perfect for celiac athletes, vegetarians or vegans. They owe their name to the presence of phytonutrients that strengthen mental processes and memory.
