Health & Wellness



Superfoods are in fashion all over the world. And for good reason. Unlike most fads, this one is here to stay and is beneficial for everyone who joins in.

Having been introduced to the Western world over the last two decades by renowned nutritionists such as Ann Wigmore, Gabriel Cousens and David Wolfe, Superfoods quickly became famous and many people now regularly use them as part of their daily diet.

What are Superfoods?

Superfoods are foods that are super-concentrated energetically, giving us a huge amount of nutrients in a natural, balanced way that can be easily assimilated by our bodies. They are gifts from nature, 100% natural substances that have an extraordinary ability to transform our health. These foods go far beyond the simple nutrition that other foods give us. They play an important role in preventing many of the diseases of our society today and are extremely valid as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. Some of the best-known examples are: Goji berries, wheatgrass, chlorella, spirulina, raw cocoa nibs, maca, lucuma, etc.

How can they help us?

These days it’s very difficult to get everything our body needs (mind, emotions and spirit included) from food. The soil is depleted and consequently the nutritional values of food have decreased alarmingly over the last 60 years (especially with the advent of mass-used pesticides). Added to this is the stress we are exposed to on a daily basis through the enormous variety of chemicals in our modern society. Superfoods come to our aid. Everyone can benefit from using them; the least they can do for us is increase our energy levels, fill us with strength so that we can cope with the multiple tasks of our busy lives and also boost our immune systems so that we are always in excellent shape and healthy.

So many of us nowadays get used to feeling tired and worn out, or having to deal with chronic symptoms such as premenstrual syndrome, poor digestion, irritability, headaches, etc. It doesn’t have to be this way; we weren’t created to suffer. It’s a birthright to have health, joy, love, satisfaction and abundance. Superfoods help us to find these qualities in ourselves again, which are often lost or forgotten.

The start of the journey

Each person is a world apart, they have different needs and tastes, which is why you should start your journey through the world of superfoods by trying the ones that catch your eye, guided by your intuition and curiosity, and then judging for yourself which ones suit you best.
There is no recommended dosage for most of these foods. They are all 100% natural, from the plant kingdom, with no harmful side effects. There is no risk of overdose. But bear in mind that they are extremely concentrated/potent and as such, if you take too much in a short space of time, it’s natural for the body to react with a healing crisis and then have to make an extra effort to regain its lost balance. The best thing then is to start with small doses, see how the body reacts and gradually increase the dosage until it is comfortable and provides the desired effects.

One last note: Pesticide-free food products should be preferred, i.e. organic or wild-harvested. They are much tastier and healthier and help us to take responsibility and be part of the movement to heal our planet. Taking care of the Earth means taking care of our home and the home of future generations, our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren… We can all make a useful, practical and logical contribution to the beautification of our world by buying ecological food. Supporting organic farmers means supporting the environment, sustainability and ecology. They are modern-day heroes, for it is they who are doing the valuable work of reconverting our impoverished soils, thus allowing nature to return to its natural state of richness, beauty, strength and abundance. The time of pesticides is over. The organic era is here to stay.
