Superfoods....What are they, and why should we eat them?

Super Foods.......the new buzz word....but what are they, and why do we need them?  I'll try to keep this simple ☺  We are, what we eat!!

  •    Superfoods contain high levels of much-needed vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, and polyphenols.
  • Along with essential nutrients, superfoods promote healing
  • They contain very potent and unique compounds beyond vitamins and minerals that not only protect our immune system, they also inhibit 'bad' cells from reproducing.
  • Superfoods have the ability to kill harmful bacteria in our guts, creating a healthy digestive system.
  • They give you heaps of excess energy and make you feel amazing!
  • Superfoods are great for your skin!!  Packed with alkalizing properties, and an abundance of antioxidants, superfoods provide a winning combination to help reduce redness, inflammation, wrinkles and fine lines, age spots, and rough, dry skin.
  • Low in calories, they're beneficial to your waistline!
