What Are Superfoods And Why Should I Care?
It’s 2017 and you’re on the internet, so you’ve probably got an idea about what the term “Superfood” means.And you’re probably right, because “Superfood” is kinda like a glance from a handsome stranger: it can mean whatever you want it to mean. “Superfood” is not a protected term like Organic, so it gets thrown around a lot more than it should. When we say “Superfood”, as in Subi Superfood, we’re talking about a fruit or vegetable that’s particularly rich in the nutrients that keep you healthy and feeling great. And we think anything this specially potent deserves a little extra attention, even if you might have to look further afield than Mr. Jones’ vegetable plot.
Here’s the skinny on 4 of the special plants that go into Subi Superfood to give you Subi Powers.Maca Root
Maca is a member of the cruciferous vegetable family, so it’s related to cabbage, broccoli and kale. Maca has been used for a long time in its native Peru, where the root of the plant is usually dried and powdered to be used as food or for medicinal purposes.
What makes it super? Well, it’s super nutritious. Maca is packed with Vitamin C, Copper, Iron, and antioxidants. And if you ever meet a groovy Peruvian, Maca might be responsible - the root has a well-founded reputation for increasing libido in men and women.Goji Berries
Goji berries (also known as wolfberries) are originally a Chinese crop, and they’ve been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 2000 years. Goji berries stand out because, as well as being really nutritionally dense, they contain a special antioxidant all of their own.
As well as their own unique antioxidant, goji berries contain lots of other antioxidants. They’re also rich in Vitamins A & C, iron, copper, and selenium, among many other minerals. Sounds pretty super to me.Açaí Berries
Açaí berries come from Brazil and are packed full of super-powerful antioxidants. In fact, on the scale that’s used to measure antioxidants, Açaí berries rate higher than any other berry we could find.
If you’re wondering why everyone is always talking about antioxidants, here’s why: antioxidants are chemicals that stop the harmful effects of free radicals (unstable chemicals that contribute to disease and aging). Free radicals are necessary in small amounts (for your immune system) but today, almost everyone has too many. Getting antioxidants from your diet is helpful because it minimises the damage too many free radicals can do.
TL;DR: the Açaí berries in Subi have your back.Camu Camu
Like Açaí berries, Camu Camu comes from Brazil. Again like Açaí, Camu Camu is chock full of free radical scavenging antioxidants that fight against disease and aging.
Camu Camu is a fruit about the size of a lemon that grows in the Amazon river basin. We decided to include it in our formula for Subi Superfood because, as well as all those antioxidants, Camu Camu is particularly high in Vitamin C. Per serving, it’s got 60 times more than an orange!Real Talk About Superfoods
