The answer is simple: they are nutritional powerhouses that optimize your physical and mental well-being. While they've been around since ancient times, only recently has the value and importance of superfoods, functional mushrooms and adaptogens been fully understood. Their unique combination of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are unmatched in terms of the sheer amount of health benefits that can be achieved.
Why Should I Eat Superfoods?
You know the saying “you are what you eat”? Well, it has never been truer than when talking about superfoods. Superfoods are packed with important nutrients that help you stay healthy and energized. Incorporating these nutrient-dense foods into your diet is an easy way to upgrade your nutrition and get you closer to becoming the healthiest version of yourself. While eating superfoods alone won’t magically make all of your health problems disappear overnight, they can help build a foundation for better long-term health.
What Are Functional Mushrooms and Adaptogens?
Functional mushrooms are edible mushrooms that have been shown to have unique healing properties. From calming the nervous system to boosting immunity, these fungi provide a wide range of health benefits. Adaptogens, on the other hand, are herbal extracts that help your body adapt to stressful situations by regulating hormones and promoting homeostasis.
The combination of these functional foods is nothing short of amazing, providing an array of benefits that can’t be found in regular food. Eating a diet that includes superfoods, functional mushrooms and adaptogens allows us to get the most out of our nutrition, improving our physical and mental health in ways we couldn’t have imagined before. If you want to take your health to the next level, adding these powerful superfoods to your diet is a great place to start!
Conventional vs. Organic
For those who are unaware of the difference between conventional vs. organic farming, the Center for American Progress distinguishes them as follows..."Conventional farming uses chemical fertilizers to promote plant growth, while organic farming employs manure and compost to fertilize the soil. Conventional farming sprays pesticides to get rid of pests, while organic farmers turn to insects and birds, mating disruption, or traps."
When we look even closer at these two agricultural approaches, observing the higher nutrient levels in organic foods and taking into account how severely conventional farming has eroded the mineral and nutrient levels in our soil, it is no wonder that organic superfoods, functional mushrooms and adaptogens are gaining such traction.
What does it mean to be Super?
The word super is derived from the word superior. To be in a superior position is to have an advantage. As our world accelerates at a pace unprecedented in human history, and the demands on our physical and mental well-being increase in tandem, we no longer have the luxury to ignore the negative impact sub-standard nutrition has on our daily lives. That's why now more than ever, these nutritional powerhouses offer an unparalleled advantage in our goal of achieving physical, mental and emotional balance.
