Superfoods are nutrient dense whole foods that are high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fibre, and fatty acids which are extremely beneficial to human health. A superfood has more nutrients for your body when compared calorie for calorie with another food.

Antioxidants are natural molecules that occur in certain superfoods. They help neutralize free radicals in our bodies and are anti-aging. Free radicals are natural byproducts of energy production that can wreak havoc on the body.

Why do we need superfoods?

Consuming foods that are packed with nutrients increases your energy levels, keeps you healthier, and helps ward off diseases.

"Our bodies are under attack from chemicals, toxins, poor air, cell phone radiation, etc. You’re overdosing on xenobiotics (foreign, man-made, unnatural chemicals) and synthetic flavors, colors, preservatives, pesticides, and herbicides in your food. It takes a lot of effort for your body to clear them out every day. The result is nutritional stress on your body that uses up your minerals and nutrients even faster.


We are also under stress 24/7! Our bodies need more support.

In addition to all the toxic health drainers mentioned above, moderate levels of stress can be draining on your body. In fact, high levels of stress flat out strip nutrients from your body, especially magnesium. It is also something that is hard to “outeat” with normal food. You can’t completely eliminate stress, so you need those extra vitamins and minerals that superfoods give you calorie for calorie to keep your body strong.


Supporting your body with optimal nutrition helps you live your best life – a SuperLife! I don’t know about you, but I want to be at optimal functioning. I want to feel good. I want my brain to be active. As an athlete, I want to perform my best and fuel my body well. I want my body to always be strong because it has the vitamins and minerals it needs."

Selection of good carbohydrates sources - vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes, nuts and se

Complex carbohydrates 

Carbohydrates in general have had their fair share of scrutiny over the past decade. Are they good or bad? How much do I eat? When do I eat them? The more we eat them, the more we crave them. They can develop an unhealthy imbalance in blood sugar leading to many health issues. 

Many people are afraid to eat any carbohydrates, but it is important to distinguish between the health-robbing effects of simple carbohydrates and the health giving properties of complex carbohydrates. 


Complex carbohydrates are necessary to your health, because every cell in your body uses them for energy. 

Complex carbohydrates are high fiber foods, which improve your digestion. They help stabilize your blood sugar, keep your energy at a even level, and help you feel satisfied longer after your meal.

Simple carbohydrates are one to two sugars bound together, they are easy and quick to break apart, so they get digested quickly  and go into our bloodstream at a fast rate. They provide a short term supply of energy. These are foods such as white bread, white  pasta, pastries, candies, and cookies.  

Complex carbohydrates are three or more carbohydrates bound together and take longer to break apart therefore there is a steady state of sugar released into our bloodstream
