Superfoods are by no means a substitute for the food we are used to, but its supplement. Yes, goji berries will help you lose weight, but only if you eat right and not eat them with cakes and chocolates.
Yes, spirulina will raise immunity and help relieve fatigue, but if you sleep two hours a day, only a long rest will save you. In general, superfoods are a great addition to the right lifestyle.
Use them as additives to meals, then you really feel a positive effect.
The main value of superfoods is their naturalness. Unlike artificially synthesized dietary supplements, both spirulina and chia seeds are grown in a natural way.
That is why “superfoods” are so popular – they are in trend.
But do not forget that superfoods are exotic for our organisms, so they can cause allergies. It should be borne in mind that any superfood is a powerful stimulant, it should be taken strictly within the framework of the daily norm.
Often superfoods come to us from exotic countries in packaging, all the explanations on which are written in an incomprehensible language, so, before putting them in your diet, make inquiries on the Internet and consult with experts or a doctor. After all, the chance to share the secrets of health and longevity that other cultures hold is a privilege given to us by globalization.
