Superfoods Article for the Whole Foods Co-Op

The Whole Foods Co-Op is now offering the highest quality organic superfoods in convenient sizes for all shoppers. Superfoods are so critical in this day and age for many reasons. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, and medicinal healing alkaloids that are typically lacking in the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) Since modern agriculture rapes the soil of these vital trace minerals and other important compounds necessary to bring forth life, our food even if it’s organic, is often lacking which thus requires supplementation from other sources. Why not just get it straight from your food?

Some of the new products include cacao beans, cacao powder, red maca powder (Red Maca (raw, certified organic) 1lb), Brazil nut protein powder (Brazil Nut Protein Powder, 16oz), goldenberries, & mulberries. Maca is an invigorating superfood coming straight from the Andes Mountains. It is one of the most powerful endocrine adaptogens known. It also contains over 30 trace minerals and amino acids, making it a great superfood for athletes, health enthusiasts, or anyone looking to get the cutting edge on nutrition. Brazil nut protein powder is loaded with selenium. It is also a complete protein powder. Try adding it to your smoothies and elixirs to get a taste of the Amazon! Goldenberries, also known as Incan berries, are a super tasty superfood that ranks over goji berries in its amino acid content and has some other extraordinary properties to it. Mulberries are super packed with nutrition as well and make an exceptional addition to any trail mix!

Let’s take a look at cacao, “The Food Of The Gods.” All chocolate comes from the cacao bean. If you’re familiar with the health benefits of dark chocolate, wait till you get a kick of this! The antioxidant levels of raw cacao beans are unsurpassed by any other food. Cornell University food scientists say that cocoa has nearly twice the antioxidants of red wine and up to three times those found in green tea. With raw cacao powder, it would be 14 times more than Red Wine and 21 times more than Green Tea! Cacao is also the #1 food in magnesium, which happens to be the mineral that’s most Americans are deficient in & crucial to healthy heart functioning! Cacao’s complex chemistry leaves it with a rich source of tryptophan, arginine, serotonin, polyphenols, anandamide, phenylethylamine (PEA) and over 1,200 constituent flavors! Truly a blessing for all chocolate lovers! ;)
