If you’re looking for an easy way to get more nutrients in your diet, then superfoods are the perfect solution. By definition, superfoods are any food product that is nutritionally dense and rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Superfoods aren’t limited to one type of food and include fruits, vegetables, seeds, and spices.
At Juiced Life, we rely on a wide variety of superfoods to create healthy juices packed with good-for-you ingredients. Below, we’ve highlighted four of our favourite superfoods, along with explanations of their uses and benefits.
Traditionally used in Indian curry, turmeric is a yellow-coloured spice that has countless health benefits -- even in small doses. Turmeric (along with its main active ingredient, curcumin) can improve heart health and act as an anti-inflammatory.
Several Juiced Life products incorporate turmeric to pass these impressive health benefits along to our customers. For example, we use turmeric in our My Liver Detox wellness shot to promote detoxification, support the nervous system, and more.
The maca plant grows in high-altitude areas of Peru and is renowned for its plethora of natural health benefits. Maca is connected to enhanced fertility, improved sleep, and higher energy levels. It’s even been shown to work against different types of flu viruses.
You can enjoy all of these health perks in our My Power smoothie. In addition to maca powder, it also includes ingredients like banana, dates, and cacao powder, which all combine for the perfect pre- or post-workout drink.
Ginger is a highly versatile food that can be eaten on its own, in a drink, or in food. It offers a sweet and spicy kick that many people enjoy while also adding quite a few health perks. Specifically, ginger is recognised for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and pro-digestive properties.
At Juiced Life, we love using ginger in our juices and other products. One example includes the Immunity juice shot, which combines ginger, lemon juice, honey, and cayenne pepper to keep your immune system strong all year long.
Spinach (and other leafy greens) is the quintessential superfood. Not only are they packed with several key vitamins and minerals, but they’re also high in insoluble fibre, which aids in digestion. It’s also been proven to regulate blood pressure, improve eye health, and reduce cancer risk.
With all of these incredible benefits, it’s no surprise that spinach can be found in many Juiced Life drinks. Our My Digestive wellness shot, for example, is packed with spinach to provide a healthy boost in a small dose.
From burgers to salads to dips, beetroot is extremely popular in Aussie cuisine. And as it turns out, this vegetable is actually quite good for your health as well. Beetroot has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, with the potential to lower blood pressure and improve exercise stamina.
The Juiced Life nutrition team decided to take advantage of beetroot’s health benefits by incorporating it into our My Heartbeat cold-pressed juice, which is designed to improve immunity and boost heart health.
In addition to these five ingredients, we also use many other superfoods to maximise the nutritional content of our juices. Cacao, cayenne pepper, black sesame seeds, and wheatgrass are just a few more examples of superfoods that we use to help you follow a well-balanced diet.
At Juiced Life, we offer dozens of products to help you achieve your healthiest life. Our cold-pressed juices, wellness shots, smoothies, and other products are suitable for all types of lifestyles, whether you’re looking to detox, cleanse, or just sneak more nutrients into your diet.
