Introducing the Superfoods Range For Even Better Health

Introducing the Superfoods Range For Even Better Health

There’s no substitute for a healthy diet and exercise, but supplementing with the right stuff can help you to feel at your best each day. The new superfoods supplement range contains lots of versatile, delicious bits and pieces that you can cook with, mix into shakes and salads, or just eat straight up – Organic Cacao Liquor Buttons, anyone?

What are superfoods?

They’re called superfoods because they offer something special, relative to their size, weight or calories. Take a slice of cake, for example. It might taste pretty good, but relative to how much it weighs, it doesn’t offer many nutrients, and it’s probably pretty high in sugar and other not-so-great things. Not a superfood.

A handful of blueberries, however, doesn’t weigh much, has fewer calories and offers all sorts of useful nutrients and antioxidants. Blueberries are considered a superfood.

Organic cacao

Cacao is one of the stars of our superfoods range, and you’ll find it in both powder and button form – so you can use in shakes and for baking, or just eat it right from the pack.

There’s a lot of history behind cacoa and chocolate, going back thousands of years. South America in particular has been fond of cacao since the Aztecs, who would make a dark, bitter chocolate drink from raw cacao seeds. We’re not talking about sweet little marshmallows, either; this was pure, coffee-rivalling chocolate energy.

Both our Organic Cacao Liquor Buttons and Organic Cacao Powder are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

If you really want to experience cacao in its purest form, we’ve also got Organic Raw Cacao Nibs.

Maca powder

Another South American favourite, Maca is a root, which looks a little bit like a small turnip. It grows in the Andes, and it’s one of the most prized superfoods in the world.

Why? Because it’s absolutely jam-packed with nutrients – vitamins C and B, as well as calcium, copper and essential amino acids (BCAAs.)

You can mix Maca powder with cacao powder, use it in shakes or bake with it.

Organic Chlorella

Now here’s one you might not have heard of. Chlorella is a type of algae that’s incredibly high in nutrients like iodine, iron and vitamin D.

It’s high in vitamin D because it spends all of its time in the sun. It’s been around for a long, long time, and now we’ve got it.

The importance of vitamin D

We’re pretty big on vitamin D – it’s one of our favourite supplements. Everyone needs vitamin D; it plays a key role in helping you to absorb calcium, to keep your bones and teeth strong.

You make vitamin D after exposure to sunlight, but if you live in cloudier climes, getting your recommended daily allowance can be tricky. Our Organic Chlorella tablets are an awesome, plant-based source of vitamin D.

The power of Chia

Chia seeds have been pretty popular over the past year or so, and for good reason. They’re loaded with protein and fiber, at levels and in a ratio that’s hard to find in a single food.

At 20% protein, chia seeds are great for vegetarians, and a lot of people love mixing them into juices and smoothies. You can also bake with them or sprinkle them on salads.

Camu Camu

This one definitely wins the award for the best name on our superfoods list, but camu camu has more than just a fun label.

Yet another South American delicacy, camu camu is a type of berry that’s high in vitamin C, contributing to a healthy immune system and better skin.

Energising Lucuma

The final superfood powder on our list is from, you guessed it, South America – Peru, specifically. Lucuma powder is extracted from a fruit that looks like a cross between a mango and an avocado. It’s incredibly high in phosphorus, which is important for maintaining stable energy levels. It’s available on MyVitamins now, and we would love for you to try it.

We hope that you’ll find something that you love in our superfoods range, and that whatever you choose, it helps you to look, feel and perform at your absolute best.
