Best Superfoods And Why They Are Super
Superfood Powders are extremely high in micronutrients like vitamins, minerals, as well as antioxidants, enzymes and health fats. All of these nutrients are essential to your body so you can thrive.
Here are our top favourite Best Superfoods to supercharge your smoothie:
1. Alkalasing Greens: Wheatgrass, Barleygrass, Moringa, Chlorella and Spirulina.
Spirulina and Chlorella are highly nutritious, bursting with vitamins, minerals and vegan protein. One of the most unique benefits of Chlorella is its ability to detox environmental toxins safely from the body. Spirulina is a potent detoxifier and an excellent chelating agent to remove toxins and radioactive substances from the body.
Barleygrass and Wheatgrass are extremely alkalising and rich in essential vitamins and minerals, it's also an abundant source of chlorophyll - a compound that converts sunlight into energy within the plant. When chlorophyll is consumed it releases a flow of oxygen into the bloodstream, detoxing the body of harmful toxins and impurities, it has the ability to bind to and flush out toxic chemicals and heavy metals.
Moringa protects the liver from oxidative stress, toxicity and damage. Studies show that Moringa facilitates the faster elimination of toxins and decreases the negative effect of alcohol on the liver, making this a great superfood to add to a morning after smoothie.
2. Camu Camu
