Maximizing Your Health with an Organic Superfood Blend

Organic Superfood Blend Wellness Origin

Most people have heard about the many health benefits of eating nutrient-rich superfoods. But how do you get started? Does it mean you must eat broccoli for breakfast all the time? Are you condemned to eating unpalatable foods such as kale and spinach?

Thankfully, the answer is no.

Nutrition experts realize that not all superfoods are going to be the first choice among people. After all, if your mother couldn’t get you to eat spinach, no one can.

An organic superfood blend is the answer. They contain the high-quality superfoods people desire, in the proper portions and they can be can quite tasty. Organic superfood powders easily incorporate into your diet so you can reap their many health benefits. Also, because these powders are organic, you don’t have to worry about synthetic pesticides, and other potentially harmful additives.

Use them in other healthy foods

If you aren’t a fan of the taste, you can combine organic superfood powders with other foods, such as smoothies, salads, cereal, and other healthy food choices. The important thing is to integrate superfoods into your diet so that you can reap their benefits. Experiment and find out which foods taste best when combined with organic superfood powders. One important caveat; eating superfoods does not make up for eating unhealthy foods, such as fast foods and other processed foods. Adding organic superfood powder to a fast food hamburger is undoubtedly better than eating the hamburger alone, but it defeats the purpose of giving your body the healthy, nutrient-dense foods it needs.

Use them first thing in the morning

The nutrients in organic superfood powders give your body the fuel it needs to transition into your workday. A great idea is to mix them into your coffee, a healthy smoothie or into any healthy breakfast, such as eggs, or fresh fruit. Your body will thrive with the extra nutrients.

Use them after a workout

Organic superfood powders contain the nutrients your body craves to recover after a workout at the gym. Also, the protein contained in organic superfood powders can potentially help your body build new muscle. Protein also gives you a more ‘filled’ feeling, leaving you more satisfied and less hungry between meals.

Learn more about health and nutrition

Discovering and eating superfoods are an important component in actively learning about health and nutrition. Superfoods will not make up for other unhealthy habits such as smoking, over-eating or making poor food choices. It is always recommended to read the labels on your organic superfood blend, so you are aware of what ingredients are contained in them. Also, you can’t go wrong by telling your doctor about your consumption of superfoods to avoid any possible unwanted interactions between the superfoods and any medicines you may be taking.

Why Health Enthusiasts are Going Wild Over Organic Superfood Powders

Benefits of superfoods Wellness Origin

Organic powders are one of the most efficient ways to consume superfoods. They solve several thorny problems for health-conscious people.

They are tasty!

Remember when your mom would admonish you to “Eat your Greens!” and you would say “Aw mom, do I have to?” We all know that certain foods are better for us than others, but many times we skip the healthy foods entirely. Why? Mostly, because of the taste. But what if we found a much tastier way to consume your greens?

Taste is of the main reasons health enthusiasts love Organic Superfood Powders.  Eating broccoli, especially first thing in the morning can be a daunting task. But adding a powdered form of organic broccoli to a fruit smoothie is a much easier and tastier alternative to choking down half a head of broccoli at 7 in the morning. Also, you can adjust the taste by blending organic bananas, strawberries or apples to suit your taste.

They are Convenient!

Organic Superfood powders save a lot of time and trouble. Simply measure and pour the powder into your favorite beverage or food and viola you are getting a tremendous dose of organic nutrients in an easy to use form. It saves you the ordeal of shopping for organic superfoods and eating them in a raw, more cumbersome way. It is much easier to have a concentrated version of your nutrients and drink them then it is to go shopping at an organic store and then eat, mix or juice everything. Plus, there is no guarantee your mixture would be as tasty as many Organic Superfood powders. Also, reputable Organic Superfood powders contain high-quality ingredients that may not be readily available to purchase at a local store.

They are too Beneficial to Pass up!

There is no longer any debate about the importance of superfoods and their tangible benefits to the body. It seems hardly a day goes by where we don’t hear a report about the virtues of superfoods and anti-oxidants. Now, they are available in such an easy to use and tasty form, it is hard to justify not using them. In the past, when we told our mom we didn’t want to eat our greens, she had some pity on us.

No one really liked eating nutritious food, mainly when there were so many cheaper and tastier snacks available. But now Science has made eating them so easy while retaining the many benefits of eating them raw; it seems silly to not do it. They provide fiber, minerals, vitamins, superfoods, and potent antioxidants in an easy to use, organic form.

Soon, we will be coming to a time when a parent tells their children to drink their organic greens and superfood, and the children will do it, and maybe even ask for more!

Choosing the Right Organic Superfoods Powder

Organic superfoods powder Wellness Origin

Excellent! You have done your research and have learned the tremendous health benefits offered by Organic Superfood Powders. Good job! But you are only halfway to where you need to be.

There is a dizzying array of products from which to choose.  Also, some of the products seem to be a lot less expensive as others. Are they truly the same?

Unfortunately, they are not all the same. And there is a lot of hucksterism and false claims surrounding many of the organic superfood powders. In addition, the inexpensive organic superfood powders claim to contain the exact same ingredients as their more expensive counterparts.

You still need to do a little more research.

In a nutshell, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate herbal and dietary supplements are stringently as it regulates food and drugs. In fact, the makers of herbal supplements can introduce anything to the marketplace without FDA approval, so long as they follow consistent and good manufacturing processes. The FDA has the power to remove a product after it has been introduced if it is causing harm to people. But other than those slim oversights, it is the wild west in the supplement world. Caveat emptor.

This puts the onus on the consumer as there is a tremendous difference in quality among organic superfood powders even though they may appear to contain the same ingredients.  And even more disappointing, many products do not even contain the ingredients they claim.

If the products sometimes do not even contain what they claim how can anyone select a high-quality product? Wait, it gets even more complicated.

There are times when there are multiple versions of the same ingredient. Spirulina has more 15 different types, all advertised as being the same. But they are not.

How to pick a high-quality organic superfood powder

1)    Research before you purchases – When evaluating organic superfood powders it is imperative to dig deep and research the contents of the organic superfood powder.  Generally, people first identify a superfood they wish to try and then research it. Then, they look for a reputable product that contains a pure, organic form of the superfood. As you evaluate organic superfood powders, research each ingredient listed in the powder. It is always a good idea to rely on government and academic websites, as opposed to vendor websites when researching to ensure the data is unbiased and factual. Also, look at recent data as opposed to data more than five years old. Doing your research is by far the most important step in your search.

2)    Contact the manufacturer – Many times, manufacturers deliberately use vague language to describe their contents. Go right to the source and ask questions.  A good example of a question to ask the manufacturer is “Does your product contain Spirulina as arthrospira platensis or is it another type?” Spirulina known as arthrospira platensis is the most commonly studied and most desirable. Or you could ask what is the source of your Spirulina? Some countries (China) are known to produce tainted Spirulina. (See why the doing research is so important?)

3)    Talk to your doctor – You can’t go wrong asking your doctor his or her opinion. Your doctor can look at your list of medications and compare it to the contents of your organic superfood powder.  Generally, organic superfood powders are safe to use, but everyone’s situation is different, and a qualified medical opinion can eliminate any drug contraindications.

4)    Use Common Sense – If you think the Organic Superfood product is too inexpensive to be effective, it probably is. Many times, you get what you pay for.   Organic Superfood powders are relatively new to the market, and a lot of inferior products compete with products containing high-quality ingredients.  One can usually assume the quality of a Siberian Ginseng sold at a gas station is not the same as a product made by a reputable vendor who specializes in nutrition and superfoods.

An organic powder is a convenient way to get the great benefits of Superfoods. But it is vital to invest time and research to ensure you are putting only high-quality superfoods into your body.

Organic Superfoods Powder Benefits

Organic superfood powder benefits

Superfood! We hear that term frequently these days, but do we truly know what it means?

Is it some super concoction that will reverse aging, purify our bodies and maybe even help us win the lottery (THAT would be super!)

The truth is a superfood is just a very healthy food, with many tangible benefits and few or no drawbacks.   As nutritional science progresses, scientists are discovering new benefits contained in certain sometimes exotic foods. Also, Americans have become more health conscious and educated about the foods they eat. It is an exciting time.

Why should I care about Superfoods?

The American public has learned that some foods are much healthier than others and that Superfoods are among the healthiest foods people can consume. Also, people realized that processed food is generally not as healthy as organic foods.

At the same time, scientists have discovered foods from around the world that have verifiable benefits rarely seen in everyday foods. The best example of this is Spirulina, a well-known superfood made from a blue-green algae. There are hundreds of studies examining the many real world and substantial benefits of spirulina.

Once people have realized the value of superfoods, they want to incorporate them into their diet.

But new questions arise;

  • What are some of the best source of the superfood?
  • How can I work these superfoods into my diet?
  • Do I have to eat huge amounts of these foods to get their benefits?
  • Are these foods genuinely organic or is it just another marketing ploy by a food factory to get me to buy the same old, processed, unhealthy foods?

Wouldn’t it be great if you could go up to a nutritional expert and say, “Please make me a food that combines many pure and organic superfoods into an easy to consume package.”

This is the exact reason organic superfood powders are so popular today. They are a mixture of nutrient dense, high quality, organic superfoods in a powder form which makes them very easy to mix into other foods or drinks.

Benefits of Organic Superfood Powder

Organic – This is very important.  Many fruits and vegetables are grown using industrial chemicals and pesticides. In our country as well as many other developed countries, certain chemicals and pesticides have been banned from use. But this is not true in every country. Many developing countries grow food using pesticides that are banned in developing countries and then import these foods into America.  Also, recent studies have demonstrated that fruits with thin skins (strawberries, tomatoes, and spinach particularly) retain these pesticides.

Skeptics will point out that even organic food uses pesticides, but they fail to mention that these are pesticides made from natural ingredients and are currently believed to be safer than synthetic pesticides. Organic superfood powders from reputable sources eliminate a lot of the worry surrounding the use of synthetic pesticides.

Convenience – It is much easier to add a superfood powder to your existing healthy meal than it is to carry around a large bag of fruit, vegetables, and superfoods.  Organic superfood powders blend well into smoothies, cereal, sports drinks, teas, and salad dressing. They give you many of the benefits of superfoods without having to remove seeds, peel, or juice anything.

Quality of Ingredients – Unfortunately, there is a vast difference in the quality of ingredients among vendors. The superfoods you buy from some sources may not even contain the labeled superfood.

This means it is imperative to purchase organic superfood powder from a reputable source.  Generally, a reputable vendor will incorporate several high-quality superfoods into one easy-to-use powder.  Many times, these organic superfood powders cost more than something you can buy at a convenience superstore, but that is to be expected. A hamburger from a fast food outlet is very inexpensive when compared to the hamburger made with organic, anti-biotic free beef cooked by a chef. Technically, they are the same thing, but, there is a world of difference in the quality.

Summary

50 years ago, no one had heard of cholesterol. 20 years ago, no one had heard of Trans Fat. Nutritional science is advancing every day, and people are becoming more educated about the foods they eat.  Superfoods are scientifically proven to be very healthy, and once you decide to incorporate them into your diet, the convenience of using powdered organic superfood becomes very desirable.

Wellness Origin has been on the leading edge of this superfood renaissance for almost twenty years. The company was founded by Certified Clinical Nutrition Consultants, one of whom Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Cellular Biology, who wanted to ensure they were eating the healthiest food recommended by science.

Maximizing Your Organic Superfoods Powder Experience

Organic Multivitamin Wellness Origin

You’ve done your research, you’ve seen the data, and now you know there are many tangible benefits of eating organic foods.  And you most likely know about the ease of using organic superfood powders.

But then, there is the taste.

In a perfect world, the healthiest foods would taste best, and the unhealthiest would be less enticing. The simple truth is, nature designed superfoods for maximum health, but are they good tasting? In all candor, not so much. Spirulina, one of the most studied and widely praised superfoods, originates in pond scum. (It is derived from pond algae).

But that does not mean you cannot make organic superfood powders more enjoyable. Some people sprinkle them on top of cut fresh fruit. Other people prefer to mix them into a healthy, non-pasteurized beverage like almond milk.

At Wellness Origin, we are pleasantly surprised at the tricks some of our clients have come up with to make their superfoods more palatable.  Below are five methods we use and recommend.

1 . Lemonade – An old favorite, the assertive taste of lemon masks the flavors of many organic superfood powders. It is best to make lemonade from scratch using organic lemons and purified water. Avoid using premade lemonade mixes as they are typically unhealthy and full of sugar.

2. Warm organic coffee – Most organic superfood powders dissolve entirely in water and do not affect the taste of the coffee. High temperatures can often eliminate organic ingredients, so it is imperative to only use warm coffee. Also, not all coffees are alike when it comes to nutrients, and generally, organic coffees are healthier. Be aware that many organic superfood powders have a stimulating effect so consider this if you are drinking caffeinated organic coffee.

3. Organic smoothies – Everything tastes better in a smoothie, right? Most organic superfoods mix well in a smoothie. Again, it is best to make organic smoothies from scratch as many commercially available smoothie mixes are not very healthy. Many people buy a reputable juicer for just this reason.

4. Vegetable Juices – Pomegranate juice, beet juice, and carrot juice are healthy drinks and serve as a tremendous organic superfood powder delivery system. Plus, there are so many different types of vegetable juice, so you can find one to suit your fancy. Tomato juice, kale juice, and celery juice are excellent choices. People frequently mix juices until they find their favorite.

5. Add superfoods to your salad – Many people do not care for the gritty texture of organic superfoods, but this lends itself well to salads, especially salad dressing. As always, be sure to use organic ingredients and healthy dressings. Or for even more health benefits, skip the salad dressing and instead use first cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. Also, it is recommended to buy olive oil sold in a dark bottle because it prevents the oil from going rancid due to sunlight.

Experiment to find what works best for your tastes – organic superfood powders can be added to many foods. One important note; organic superfood should not be mixed with chlorinated water because this can destroy some of the organic components of many organic superfoods. It is best to use purified or spring water.
