*Super Food Must-Haves*
Super foods are packed with a ton nutrition. When you consume super foods you are literally filling your body with essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, proteins and more. Lets discuss some of my absolute favorite super foods and why these gems are a must have!
ACAI Berries: Also known as (wolf berries) is ranked high on the ORAC scale which is a rating system that measures the oxygen absorbance capacity in food, it’s antioxidant potency, and the food’s ability to counteract oxidation. Acai contains an extremely high amount antioxidants, which helps to neutralize and prevent the damaging effects of oxidation and free radicals. The antioxidants will also work wonders for your skin and help with anti-aging. Acai berry contains high amounts of Vitamin C which help’s to boost your immune system, and is known to suppress the growth of cancer. The antioxidants will also help with lowering cholesterol, and improving your blood circulation. I buy the powder form from vitacost.com and mix it inside my smoothies. Find here> ACAI BERRY
Camu Camu Powder: Is known to contain more natural Vitamin C than any other food source on the planet. Camu Camu contains up to 60 times more vitamin c than an orange. This superfood with it’s antiviral properties will work wonders for boosting your immune system. If you are fighting a common cold, or a virus that’s more extreme (cold sores, herpes, shingles etc) try fighting it natures way. The body does not naturally manufacture vitamin c so it must be ingested. Consuming 1/2 tsp of Camu Camu powder is one of the best ways to get more than your daily intake requirement. Ascorbic acid is not a natural form of vitamin c. Ascorbic acid is synthetic, and is usually made from GMO corn. Your vitamin c source should come from a plant and not a chemical lab. Camu Camu powder is also high in antioxidants, iron, potassium, calcium, protein, and it contains anti-inflammatory properties. I mix this powder inside my smoothies or raw pudding recipes.

Lucuma Powder: Is great for your skin and healthy digestion. It’s known to boost your immune system, and lower blood pressure. Lucuma provides ample amounts of iron, calcium,potassium, protein, fiber, vitamin B1,B2, B3,B5, and zinc. The beta carotene found inside lucuma helps protect against certain types off cancer. Lucuma powder is great as a alternative to sugar it contains a low glycaemic value which helps to reduce fluctuations in blood sugar levels. Add this nutritious powder in your smoothies, or desserts.
