How Do I Include Superfood Berry Drinks In My Daily Meal Plan?
The nutrients in fruits and especially berries can provide a wealth of health benefits. The simplest way to add these nutrients and health benefits to your daily diet is by supplementing your meals with Superfood Berry drinks that provide a mixture of antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, flavonoids, and digestive enzymes that promote optimum health.
Superfoods are foods that contain a very high proportion of nutrients by weight, in this case vitamins and antioxidants. Superfood Berry Drinks often include one or more of the following berries considered to be superfoods:
Blueberries. Blueberries are a rich source of antioxidants and are excellent for lowering your risk of heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants “attack” and neutralize free radicals which damage and destroy cells in your body. Damaged cells result in illness, chronic disease and accelerated aging. Consuming foods high in antioxidants like blueberries can be very beneficial for your health.
Cranberries. Cranberries are also rich in antioxidants but also promote healthy digestion, healthy liver and kidney function and the prevention and treatment of urinary tract disorders.
Goji Berries. Goji berries have been shown to boost energy and are a rich source of carotenoids. These berries contain 18 amino acids and are high in antioxidants, and minerals. They are said to provide 500 times more vitamin C per ounce than an orange and are a valuable source of protein. Goji Berries promote a healthy immune system, may improve eyesight, and help promote healthy liver function.
Acai Berries. A recent addition to the superfoods list, Acai berries are found in Brazil and have been shown to increase immunity, slow the aging process, improve circulation and reduce inflammation.
How Best To Include Superfood Berry Drinks In Your Diet
Most Superfood Berry Drinks are supplied in powdered (dehydrated) form or may be in liquid form and most also require mixing or diluting, preferably with water. The best way to add berry drinks to your diet is to start with one serving before and with each meal and then additional servings throughout the day.
The serving before meals will help fill your stomach and reduce the amount of food and calories you consume while providing valuable nutrients. The additional servings spread evenly throughout the day should be used to replace any other unhealthy drinks you would normally consume like coffee or colas or sodas. These drinks will provide a steady flow of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other healthful nutrients to maintain your energy level and help you on your path to optimal health.
