Every year a set of new superfoods is touted to be the best. They become the newest stars of the nutrition world, giving consumers that much more nutrition per dollar spent on food. These foods may be the basis for or supplementary to your lifestyle. This new year and decade see great new superfoods or macronutrients coming into the market. Take a look at the following:
Last year adaptogens, herbs that help the body combat long term stress and give it endurance, were all the rage. It didn’t take long for herbal gurus like Rachelle Robinett to come up with new herbs that are even better than adaptogens.
She’s marketing a new class of herbs called nervines or nerveless HRBLS, basically, herbs that soothe the nerves instantly. They command the body to come out of fighting mode and put it into a calm and digestive frame.
Fiber is Still It
Fiber remains one of the best and most appreciated options in health and wellness. Expect to buy up your share of high fiber products based on legumes, grains, and nuts in 2020.
You can also turn on to the habit of snacking on these and high fiber snacks are getting more market shares. You can, for instance, use fiber boosts like acacia fiber to smoothies. Ms. Robinett classes fiber as a major macronutrient.
Like fiber, prebiotics is a powerful aid to digestion. They are becoming more popular, basically following in the footsteps of probiotics. (Probiotics have become so popular that there are even designer probiotic chips for the health-savvy lifestyle eater.)
For a healthy gut, some experts in the field think that prebiotics works better than probiotics for healthy digestion. Prebiotics come from indigestible fiber from plants like garlic, chicory and oats, and certain vegetables or grains. Prebiotic boosts are available in powder packs.
The Perfect Choco
Chocolates are the perfect lifestyle mood boosters. For those who worry that they may be unhealthy, worry no more. Experts have found that super dark chocolate which contains raw cacao is chock-full of antioxidants, fiber, iron, magnesium, and fiber. The votes should rack up for at least 75% dark chocolate content, or higher.
Now you can eat the perfect healthy chocolate to your heart’s content. Moderation, though, remains key to healthy eating even for the latest and the best macronutrients available in the market today.
Bitters for Better Digestion
Still, on the subject of digestive health, digestive bitters will help stimulate the creation of your body’s powerful digestive enzymes. This takes out the need to take exogenous enzymes, usually marketed as pills. Bitters like chamomile and dandelion root found in herbal teas help your body digest properly, reduce bloating and gas, and absorb nutrients better.
Chlorella, an alga, contains all the body’s amino acids, is rich in B12, antioxidants, minerals, and other vitamins. It binds naturally to toxins like heavy metals. This makes it a superfood, a powerhouse of health benefits. Make sure you use the tablets or powdered products with the outer shell pulverized.
