We've discussed food basics and which choices best serve strong, healthy bones. But it is balance, or the actual teamwork of nutrients within a body, that ultimately gives us our best selves. Superfoods provide a heightened level of nutrient density. They are excellent for those of us who want to keep animal protein to a minimum while ensuring the right concentration of nutrients for our bodies and bones.
A little background Superfoods (a single food source packed with vitamins, nutrients, enzymes, and minerals) provide a very high nutritional boost while working to nourish, heal, promote balance, and optimize all body functions.
Ironic, that what seems relatively 'new' to us has been circulating for thousands of years; Superfoods have been the mainstay of healers and medical promoters throughout many cultures (Chinese, Mayans, Aztecs...). It's so cool to see our science meeting these rich traditions and celebrating the benefits of berries and plants... finally realizing that whole, natural, and balanced foods boost our health in every area.
