Superfoods Give Energy Boost
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When your body is functioning optimally, you will experience fewer colds, fewer symptoms of disease and a general feeling of overall wellness. Many people assume that they have to live with a disease because a doctor told them they had it. However, our bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves when they are given the right nutrition. We are just in the habit of fast foods and convenience foods. Our organs don't always get what they need and dysfunction starts. This is where superfoods come into play. They provide our bodies with what they need.

There is a lot of hype about some of the superfoods out there. Sometimes it is difficutl to separate the hype from what is real. Lots of marketers want to make money from you and some will give you inferior products. 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. Some people are right to be skeptical and cautious. They probably don't feel like they would benefit from superfoods at all.

I decided to start conducting my own experiments with superfoods and seeing how I felt after eating them. I began with a high antioxidant greens drink mix. It had a pleasant taste, but 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. In addition to my regularity, I experienced 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 at my usual time, 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. I have actually completed more things today.

When purchasing superfoods look for ones that are organically grown and minimally processed to ensure that you receive the highest quality nutrition. Often we rely on overprocessed convenience foods to keep us going, but real nutrition and amazing green superfoods can help our bodies function optimally.
