What are Superfoods?

We believe that good health is one of the key aspects in order for us to be happy. We are committed to looking for food products, which support to the maximum extent possible physical wellbeing – foods, which contain the most of essential nutrients, being at the same time of the highest quality. Therefore we wish to offer to your attention the superfoods.

Superfoods

Superfoods are food products of natural origin, positioned between regular food products and medicinal products, which have a strong cultural background and a very high nutrient content.

On our Earth it is known to be over 1.8 million live organisms, from unicellular organisms to extremely complicated humans. This group also includes foods with a particularly high nutrient content, which have been occupying a significant position in the history of many cultures. These food products have subsequently been named “superfoods”.

Superfoods are naturally produced foods that possess unique healing properties. The modern scientific research has demonstrated high nutrient contents and rare ingredients contained in different superfoods.

The majority of superfoods are excellent sources of proteins, and many of them contain amino acids essential for our body. Some of the superfoods are so-called adaptogens, which help our bodies to adapt, i.e. to adjust to such changes in the environment like, for instance, stress. Superfoods are characterised by excellent absorption properties and low level of waste matter. These foods put the least strain on our bodies, while at the same time offer an abundance of nutrients in a maximally condensed and easily usable form. Furthermore, all superfoods contain a large quantity of vitamins, minerals and bioactive ingredients.

Although superfoods are often associated with being trendy it serves to remember that these products have been used for food longer than any other on this planet. From the cultural history aspect the majority of the main food products in our daily food intake are indeed much closer to food trends. We have been eating margarine for the last 20 years, while chia seeds have been in human consumption for thousands of years. Nevertheless, superfoods should not be confused with “new and magic food additives” or with “trendy weight-loss products”.

How superfoods are used?

For many the convenience and ease of using superfoods is one of the major reasons for preferring them. Dried berries or cacao beans are easy to eat as they are. Obviously a food mixture prepared of different superfoods is the simplest and fastest way to add superfoods in your diet. Replacing snacks and nibbling habits with food rich in nutrients can turn even the worst daily habits into the most nutrient-rich meals. This is perfect for anyone who travels a lot, and wish to keep their healthy eating habits even in an ever-varying environment. When a large portion of nutrients needed by our body can be fitted in their natural form in a small and delicious package, many of us will perceive this as optimum food.

Another practice that can be introduced right away is adding superfoods to one’s eating habits. We al have our own habits, routines an eating practices. By adding new and enriching old habits one can easily complement a diet with more nutrients, new flavours and alternatives, which can subsequently be used to put together a number of different and pleasant combinations. Different superfood powders are easy to add to cereals and health cocktails, as well as to raw chocolate. The same applies to main courses and soups.
