Superfoods Allies for Winter Wellness

May 8, 2024 Honest to Goodness

We often associate superfood powders with smoothie bowls and vibrant juices – foods that remind us of sunny, warm days. But as the cooler months set in, these nutrient-dense wonder foods should still be included as a regular immunity booster alongside a healthy diet.

To help keep our immune systems strong, we should all be consuming a diet rich in fruits and vegetables (organic whenever you can), lean meats, wild caught fish where possible, legumes, wholegrains, quality fats, plus antioxidant rich superfoods for that extra immune support. Here’s how you can practically incorporate superfood powders into your diet throughout the winter months.


WHAT ARE SUPERFOOD POWDERS?

Explore Superfoods

Organic superfood powders are whole foods that have been dried to preserve their nutritional profile, then ground into a fine powder ready for you to enjoy. Superfoods such as our Organic Spirulina Powder are sourced from natural sweet water aquifers 600 metres below the surface. The spirulina is harvested, washed to remove any impurities, then dried and ground into a convenient powder. Other organic superfood powders, such as our Organic Acai Powder, are created from 100% organic Acai Berries, picked then freeze-dried into a rich, dark purple powder. So concentrated are the antioxidant properties of our Acai Berries, it takes an incredible 18-20kg of organic Acai berries to make 1kg of our Organic Acai Powder. Want to find out the antioxidant level of your superfood? Then check the ORAC value (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) – the higher the value the better. Our Organic Acai Powder, for example, has an ORAC level of 47,443 per 100 grams.


FREE RADICAL FIGHTERS

If you are looking to boost your immune system during winter, organic superfood powders can be a simple yet effective addition to the diet. Daily stress, a diet high in saturated fats, too much alcohol, and a lack of exercise can all contribute to free radical damage in the body. During winter months, many people’s Vitamin D levels drop due to a lack of sunshine. Vitamin D has been shown to help support immune health, so a regular intake of superfoods may be beneficial to support immune health. Beetroot is a nourishing root vegetable naturally rich in nitrates that may assist with blood circulation, as well as betaine, which helps promote good cardiovascular health. Organic Beetroot Powder can be easily added to baking, dips, juices and smoothies. Looking to boost your intake of vitamin C over winter? Then try Organic Baobab Powder. As well as being rich in antioxidants, it contains more vitamin C than goji or blueberries – perfect to help ward off winter ills.


SUPER CONVENIENCE

While we all have good intentions of making ‘superfood’ meals, this isn’t always possible due to time, ingredient availability and pricing. One of the benefits of having organic powdered superfoods on hand is it’s easy to make nutritious meals in minutes, simply by adding superfood powder to hot drinks, soups, baking or smoothies. There’s also no waste involved as superfood powders last much longer than their fresh counterparts.


ENERGY BOOSTERS

Need extra energy and focus? Organic Maca Powder is well-known for its energising and nourishing properties and is popular with athletes post-workout, for enhanced recovery and performance. Add some Maca to your next batch of savoury muffins or add a spoonful to your morning hot chocolate. Organic Wheatgrass Powder is another superfood known for its energising properties – perfect for beating the winter blues.
