So with all the hype surrounding comic book heroes and their super strength, I decided to give a few of my secrets that could save you and a few others too. We all strive to eat correctly so that our bodies benefit from nutrition so much so that we expect a radiant glow and energy comparable to that of the Energizer bunny. Well, I can tell you that the glow and energy are real. However there are so many foods that experts recommend that it is baffling as to which to choose and if we were to choose just a few off of the never-ending list – are we missing out on certain nutrients or even worse the glow?
I’ve created my very own list from my personal experience and long-term use of these superfoods. These four nutrient-rich foods will have you gleaming from the inside out, rejuvenate your lack of energy and one of these particular superfoods will boost your sex drive – now I know you pervs are hooked.
Yes, these tiny black seeds that you have probably bypassed in every health store could quite literally change your life.
The Chia seed is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, they are rich in antioxidants as well as provide your body with fiber, calcium, and iron. Chia seeds pack a punch in the protein department, not only are they a complete protein but they are also a high-quality protein that digests easily and contain essential amino acids needed for optimum health. The protein content found in chia seeds is much higher than that found in meat and eggs.
Chia seeds have proven to aid in lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels, proven to reduce the risk of developing diabetes by regulating blood sugar levels. The anti-inflammatory properties found in chia seed oil relieves acne and restores the skins moisture levels to normal, here is how you get skin that naturally glows, the antioxidants found in chia seeds combat free-radicals and protect your skin from anti-aging, these antioxidants also prevent wrinkle formation giving you younger, smoother skin.
Runners can add chia seeds to their smoothies or soak them in coconut water pre-run, this will keep the body fuelled for a longer period of time and sustain energy levels.
Add your chia seeds to your morning smoothie, a tablespoon in your oats or soak them overnight in coconut milk and fruit and you have a delicious brekkie.
Although the health benefits associated with the maca root have newly been considered a superfood, the maca root has been around for thousands of years and is native to the Andes of Peru. The maca roots newly found superfood VIP status is well-deserved.
The maca powder is rich in antioxidants, which counteract harmful free radicals, fighting chronic diseases as well as prevents damage to cells.
From personal experience, I have found that adding maca powder to my diet has improved my energy, I find it more effective than my morning java. It maintains energy levels and some studies have found that maca root can be used to reduce symptoms of depression.
So here’s the part you pervs have been waiting for, men you might want to read on also…drum roll, please.
Maca root has proven to enhance sexual desire, increase stamina in men and women, so guys if you are tired of getting side ass every morning, add a teaspoon of maca powder to your daily routine and enjoy the difference… you can thank me later.
Apart from increasing sexual stamina, maca powder aids in balancing female hormones, alleviates symptoms of menopause and improve sexual health. Don’t panic male counterparts, studies have shown that regular use of maca powder will also benefit your sexual health as well as improve sperm count… great fertility all around.
Although their wrinkled appearance has pushed many away from gripping them off shelves, do not be fooled, goji berries pack a punch. They are a powerhouse of vitamins, minerals and are protein dense. These red jewels are high in vitamin C – ADIOS COLDS AND FLUS!
Goji berries contain high levels of Beta-carotene (pigment found in fruits and plants), which promote healthy naturally radiant skin and more importantly, studies show that they act as a natural treatment for skin cancer.
Other benefits include improvement in energy levels, low in calories, they are a great source of fiber and high in antioxidants.
They can be easily added to smoothies, oats, and salads and if you are lazy just stir them into a serving of yogurt.
We all know that cacao is used to make chocolate no wonder it has superfood status… chocolate makes everything a lot better. However, this Amazonian antioxidant is more than just chocolatey goodness.
Cacao is the highest plant-based source of iron, it contains 7.3 mg of iron per 100 g, pair with vitamin C to get the maximum benefit. You might also want to swap out your skinny cappuccino with a few squares of dairy-free raw chocolate, as cacao contains more calcium than milk vegans are winning.
Again I will accept “thank yous” later, cacao is a natural aphrodisiac, it improves libido and sexual health.
Flavanols found in cacao protect against cardiovascular disease, reduce the risk of stroke and bad cholesterol as well as improves blood circulation.
Just like maca, cacao can be easily added to smoothies, oats, even heated over the stove with almond milk makes for a delicious hot chocolate that packs a punch.
I hope you have been encouraged enough to add these superfoods to your diet, I can guarantee that you will feel the difference in how your body responds to all of the goodness these four heroes bring.
You might want to leave the cape and spandex for the bedroom.
