Do you want significantly more energy throughout the day? Improve your sports performance? An improvement in hair, skin and nails? And also a strengthening of your immune system? Then you have come to the right place with superfoods!

Superfoods are currently more popular than ever, but one superfood is of course not the other. What superfoods are, what powerful effect they have on your body and how to process the superfoods, you will discover in this article. 

What are Superfoods?

Superfoods are natural foods, such as seeds, vegetables and fruits, that have a positive effect on your body. Superfoods contain a large amount of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and antioxidants. Other healthy nutrients contain about 2 to 3 properties, but superfoods contain as many as 12 or more healthy superfoods. So superfoods are a collection of powerful and nutritious foods with an extraordinary amount of nutrients.

Superfoods are known for:

  • Improving your sports performance
  • Improving your immune system
  • Burn calories as they improve metabolism
  • Rejuvenate your skin, because they contain a lot of antioxidants and vitamin C
  • Reduces risk of cancer and protects your heart

How do you use superfoods?

Superfoods are easy to incorporate into smoothies, yoghurt, oatmeal or cottage cheese. You can choose separate superfoods, such as just Maca powder, but you can also choose a product that contains several superfoods, so that you experience even more health benefits. A product containing several superfoods is, for example, the Vegan protein powder line from Green Harvey ! Each protein powder contains an average of 8-10 superfoods. All superfoods mentioned above are also processed in the protein powders.

The protein powders with many superfoods therefore provide more energy, no bloating and an improvement in your sports performance. There are currently 3 delicious flavours: Berrylicious , Cookie Dough and Vanilla which are all gluten, dairy and soy free.
