Superfoods: The Powerfoods and Medicine of the Future

You can still get all your vitamins and minerals from food. How? With Superfoods. Superfoods are the most powerful, nutritious, mineral-rich plant foods on Earth and are the great gifts given to us by the greatest civilizations that have ever existed. The Chinese civilization gave us goji berries, the Aztecs/Toltecs/Mayans/Olmecs gave us cacao (raw chocolate), and the Egyptians gave us aloe vera. Polynesians gave us noni, the Incan peoples gave us maca, central Africans gave us spirulina, and beekeepers around the world gave us bee pollen, propolis, and royal jelly.

Right now, this is the moment of our awakening, when we can finally bring all these superfoods together. Superfoods represent an awesome piece of the nutrition puzzle as they are the best natural sources of clean pesticide-free and chemical-free:

Protein (most superfoods are complete protein sources)

Vitamins

Minerals

Enzymes

Antioxidants

Co-enzymes

Good fats and oils

Essential fatty acids

Essential amino acids

Fiber

Polysaccharides (glyconutrients or essential sugars)

Superfoods go a long way towards making us more well-balanced in behavior and demeanor. This is due to their ability to help remineralize our tissues and offer deep, well-rounded nutritional support. Superfoods immediately help nourish our brain, bones, muscles, skin, hair, nails, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, reproductive system, pancreas, and most importantly our immune system. Over the long-term, superfoods work to correct imbalances and guide us towards a more natural and original diet. When we consume superfoods it becomes dramatically easier to achieve our ideal weight, diet, and food habits. Superfoods ease our efforts to detoxify and make the transition to more healthy foods a snap … all we have to do is enjoy their gifts!!

 

Superfoods can help us to:

Maintain a healthy weight

Get all the protein we could ever need

Improve our immune system

Nutritionally saturate our bodies with super-nutrients.
