What Makes a Superfood so… Super?

So… what are superfoods anyway? You’ve likely heard the term, but if you’re not sure exactly what it means, no worries – we’re here to drop some knowledge.
As the Harvard School of Public Health put it: “a food is promoted to superfood status when it offers high levels of desirable nutrients, is linked to the prevention of a disease, or is believed to offer several simultaneous health benefits beyond its nutritional value.”
Superfoods have even made it into the dictionary, with Merriam-Webster defining them as “a food (such as salmon, broccoli, or blueberries) that is rich in compounds (such as antioxidants, fiber, or fatty acids) considered beneficial to a person's health.”
Essentially, superfoods are nourishing, nutrient-packed foods that are great for our bodies and minds. Benefits are said to include a reduced risk of heart disease, memory loss and other health problems. They’re generally strong sources of vitamins, minerals and fiber, and often high in phytonutrients and antioxidants, which may help prevent cancer and other chronic illnesses.
Super! But... most of us still aren’t getting enough of them in our diet.
We’re setting out to change that and make it easy to load up with tons of good-for-you nutrients, every day – even when you’re on the go. Superfood powders are an excellent way to get all these nutritional benefits without having to go to the grocery store, meal plan, cook, or even think too hard about it.
Take our SUPERFOOD + CBD powder , for example. It packs a punch with not one, not 10, but 55 different superfoods. We’re talking goji berries, acai berries, Hawthorn berries (so many berries!), pumpkin sprouts, red clover sprouts, all sorts of superfood mushrooms and more. Basically, if it’s super good for you, it’s in there (you can read the full list here ).
We believe that pure, all-natural, nutrient-rich superfoods are the most beneficial to your body, mind and overall well-being. We’re super excited for you to try our products, and start reaping the benefits!
