What is a Superfood?

Superfoods are just that – They’re Super! Ā Superfoods are nutrient dense powerhouses that contain large amounts of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals. Ā Eating them could prove to prolong life and reduce the risk of chronic disease. Ā While the term “superfood” is relatively new, superfoods have been around for thousands of years. Ā And this is for good reason…they’re packed full of nutrients! Ā Read below to see these 5 superfoods you need now!

Blueberries are a superfood

Blueberries are a Superfood!

Blueberries

These little berries contain anthocyanins, which give blueberries their distinctive blue color and are a source of many macronutrients. Ā Blueberries are one of the best sources of antioxidants which help decrease inflammation throughout the whole body. Ā More specifically, a recent study proved blueberries were significant in raising HDL (the good cholesterol) and lowering triglycerides if consumed daily. Ā Regulation of blood sugar is another way that blueberries are in fact a SUPERfood. Ā I personally LOVE these little berries and they’re perfect by themselves or incorporated into salads, desserts, or parfaits.

Bone Broth is a superfood!

Bone Broth is a Superfood!

Bone Broth

Used for thousands of years by practitioners for healing and just plain nourishment. Ā Bone Broth is rich in protein, amino acids, and minerals. Ā Used by many as a health tonic to improve digestion, mobilize joints, boost immunity, and soften wrinkles. Ā Bone Broth is best when consumed daily to continually “heal and seal” your gut lining which helps you to absorb nutrients from all food sources. Ā Health begins in the gut and bone broth helps you to achieve it. Ā This superfood is excellent incorporated into almost any recipe but I personally love Osso Good Bone Broth sipped from a mug.

Broccoli is a superfood!

Broccoli

This “mini tree” is packed full of nutrients. Ā One cup of broccoli exceeds your daily recommendation for vitamin K, vitamin C, and folic acid. Ā When consumed daily, broccoli has been known to improve bone density and skin elasticity, while decreasing your risk for developing cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Ā Try turning broccoli into a soup with nutrient dense bone broth for a SUPERfood meal!

Coconut Oil is a Superfood!

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is an incredibly versatile and delicious superfood. Ā It contains almost all medium chain Saturated Fats, making it easier to digest for immediate fuel. Ā This also means that our bodies don’tĀ store it as fat the same as unsaturated fats. Ā Coconut oil has been proven to prevent heart disease, high blood pressure, and even treat Alzheimer’s disease. Ā Coconut oil even has a wide range of antimicrobial, antiviral, and anti fungal properties to boot! Ā If you’re looking to improve your energy, shed a few pounds, and boost your memory then coconut oil could be the perfect supplement. Ā Enjoy your coconut oil blended in bone broth for a perfect snack or breakfast on the run!

Macadamia Nuts are Superfood!

Macadamia Nuts

Native to Australia, these nuts are loaded with monounsaturated fat, the good fat! Ā Consumption of macadamia nuts leads to higher HDL levels which lowers your risk for cardiovascular disease and stroke. Ā Rich in the essential amino acid, arginine, macadamia nuts are great for vascular health. Ā They’re also rich in vitamin B1, magnesium, manganese, and thiamin. Ā The healthy fat in macadamia nuts helps keep you satiated longer. Ā They’re the perfect snack to enjoy with bone broth when you’re on the run!
