If you want to live a life full of energy, you need to take care of your health by eating more healthy foods. Some of the best foods for keeping you healthy are superfoods. What are superfoods?
Superfoods are natural foods that are very high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, fiber, and other essential nutrients.
The best superfoods are plant-based for the reasons that plant foods often contain the most nutrients and many of them can be eaten raw.
If a food needs to be cooked in order to be eaten, it isn’t really a superfood. This is because when a food is being cooked, the heat that the food absorbs during the cooking process will destroy some of its essential nutrients.
Another important fact you should know about superfoods is that not all of them are grown properly. Superfoods that are grown conventionally are often contaminated with toxic agricultural chemicals (e.g., pesticides, herbicides).
Furthermore, they usually lack nutrients because they are grown on soil that is depleted of minerals. For these reasons, it is best to choose superfoods that are grown organically. Even better, grow your own superfoods on soil treated with natural rock dust.
Superfoods aren’t just healthy to eat but are also great for preventing sickness, weight gain, and chronic fatigue. In other words, they aren’t just for replenishing your energy, but can also be used as medicines to heal your body. These health benefits of superfoods are some of the main reasons why they are great for long term energy.
Here is a list of some of the best superfoods for long term energy (listed in alphabetical order):
- Goji berries (wolfberries)
- Maitake mushroom
- Red onion
- Wheat grass
- Wild blue-green algae
