Check out this impressive list of wholesome and healing ingredients in our Organic Red SuperFoods Blend:
Organic Beet Roots – provide naturally occurring nitrates which are converted into nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide helps relax and dilate blood vessels, thus improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure. Athletes especially benefit from beets because they improve tolerance to high-intensity exercise, boost stamina and reduce oxygen needs! A good source of betaine, iron, folate, vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, manganese and betalain pigments including betacyanin (an antioxidant phytonutrient) beet root helps protect cells, proteins, and enzymes from environmental stress while also preventing inflammation and numerous chronic diseases, protecting internal organs and improving cardiovascular health. Beets also help to support the natural process of detoxification.
Organic Pomegranates – in addition to being delicious, dark red pomegranates are a concentrated source of three main types of antioxidant polyphenols (tannins, anthocyanins, and ellagic acid). These antioxidants have been shown to protect cells against cancer and prevent aging by neutralizing the free radicals that cause oxidative stress and lead to accelerated tissue and organ damage. They also help to lower chronic inflammation. A recent human study in Israel showed significant improvement for arthritis sufferers including reduced joint pain and decreased inflammation. The antioxidants in pomegranates may help reduce inflammation that contributes to the destruction of cartilage in joints.
Organic Goji Berries – are a health-promoting red-orange superfood berry that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine and food for more than 2000 years! Goji berries have been described as having a taste similar to a cross between cherries, cranberries and raisins. Recent research published in the journal of Neuromolecular Medicine (March 2016) describe this unique berry as having “powerful neuro-protective effects on a number of neuronal diseases” including retinal disorders, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and spinal cord injury. Also known as wolfberry, Goji berries contain the colourful phytonutrient pigments zeaxanthin and carotene as well as therapeutic polysaccharides known to have antioxidant and anti-aging properties.
Organic Grapeseed – substantially increases blood levels of antioxidants. Grapeseed is used for a wide range of health problems related to free radical damage, including premature aging, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
Organic Carrots – best known for their exceptional beta carotene content, carrots are an abundant source of this bright orange antioxidant with disease-fighting powers. Once converted to the active form of vitamin A, carrots help maintain immunity and prevent night blindness, dry eyes and impaired bone growth. They also protect cells from damage caused by free radicals and reduce cancer risk.
Organic Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries & Cranberries – these colourful and tasty berries are valuable sources of potent phytochemicals that work wonders to optimize our health through their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.
