Should You Eat Superfoods?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There is a lot of hype about some of the superfoods out there. You may be wondering if you are getting enough nutrition or you may just consider it all hype. There is really only one way to find out if you need to be eating superfoods and that is to try them for yourself.

What are some of the reported benefits of eating superfoods? If you haven't heard, some people are experiencing an increase in energy and a decrease in cold symptoms. That may not be enough for some people to start consuming the superfoods, but for others it is just what the doctor ordered.

I decided to start conducting my own experiments with superfoods and seeing how I felt after eating them. I started with a high antioxidant green drink mix. It had a pleasant taste and probably would be better mixed into a smoothie or fruit juice instead of water. I read a lot of reviews first that said it would make you regular and indeed, it came through in that area. I also noticed a boost of energy and my concentration increased. I was able to get more accomplished.

Was there a downside to taking this superfood? I drank my first glass of it just before going to bed. Instead of lying down and falling right to sleep, I noticed that I was still alert for a few more hours. I woke up very alert at my usual time and well rested, so even though I had more energy later into the evening, I did not experience exhaustion from sleeping less.

In the morning, I had another scoop of my superfood drink mix. I did not have any yawning or fatigue around the lunch hour or even midafternoon. It may be the superfood drink mix, or it may be coincidence, but I do have more energy and mental alertness.

One nice thing about consuming superfoods is that you can feel more comfortable about the nutrients that you are giving your body. Often we rely on overprocessed convenience foods to keep us going, but real nutrition and amazing green superfoods can help our bodies function optimally. When your body is functioning optimally, you experience fewer colds, your disease symptoms decrease or disappear altogether. Our bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves when given the right nutrition. We are just in the habit of fast foods and convenience foods, which often let us succumb to colds.
