There is an expression that your body is a temple and that you are what you eat.  So why not fill your diet with superfoods to nourish your temple and build a super strong body.

So what are superfoods?  Superfoods include foods that have a dozen or more unique properties.   An example of this would be goji berry which is a complete source of protein.  It also stimulates the immune system because of its polysaccharides, liver-cleansing betaine, anti-aging sesquiterpenes and antioxidants.  Superfoods have over 20 trace minerals, and for that reason are considered food and medicine.  Superfoods are the most potent, concentrated and nutrient rich foods that are available to us.  They increase our vital and energy and boost our immune system while elevating serotonin production and cleansing and alkaline the body.  Superfood are known to nourish the brain, bones, muscles, skin, hair, nails, organ systems, reproductive system, pancreas and immune system.   If eaten often can correct imbalances and restore us back to good health.

Goji berries hydra us because they have a high concentration on hydrogen. They also produce choline that help to protect the brain and neurological function. The heart also benefits from these little berries by fighting narrowing of the arteries by increasing an enzyme called superoxide dismutase (SOD) preventing cholesterol from oxidizing. Last but not least Goji berries help to keep our organs health. Because these berries are tonic adaptogen they balance blood sugar and enhance liver and the digestive system and our skin.
