SuperFruits: A Simple Way to Upgrade Your Life

Have you ever been in a situation in your life when you thought, "Can it get better than this?" Maybe in the past you found yourself pushing your limits in an athletic competition, or writing your best short story yet, or having your first child. Perhaps you sat down one year, made a resolution to eat better, and followed through with it. 

You've been at the top of your game. You know the exhilaration that comes with being clear, able, and successful. 

Where are you now? Are you at the top of your game? Or are you at a midway point? Would you like to feel better?

No matter where you are in your journey, there may always be a feeling that you can go further. It is an innate human quality to try to go further. As many of you know, we are what we eat. How can food help you take your life beyond its limitations? 

Welcome SuperFruits. As stated by the name, they're more than just fruit. Most people enjoy regular fruit: the sweet juiciness of Mother Earth's bounty bursting in their mouths! But fruit can also have a negative connotation in that we often find that we don't get much "get up and go" or sustained energy from them. This is because we typically have been enjoying the deliciousness of fruits which are really high in fructose and not as nutrient dense as the true SuperFruits. 

True SuperFruits vs Regular Fruit

The number one rule of Superfood is that there are only upsides and no downsides. Meaning they only have positive qualities, and no negative aspect that could offset the positive factors. This simply yet profound distinction is what makes the True Superfruits so superior to other fruits.

Why have the True SuperFruits been underestimated until recently? Simple answer, they've been misunderstood because of the weak reputation that the high fructose fruits have earned. Most people have lumped all fruits together and haven't learned to make the clear distinction between the Superfruit and regular fruit. Few of us actually understand the wide array of awesome benefits that the True Superfruits have to offer such as:

  • Lower Glycemic Index than regular fruits.
  • Immune system boost (get sick less often).
  • Anti-inflammatory.
  • Help with Weight management by improving healthy metabolism.
  • Reduction of cravings for poor food.
  • Terrific Antioxidant qualities.
  • Powerful Preventative for all illnesses, auto-immune diseases, and even cancers.
  • Improves your sleep.
  • Improves your mood.
  • Avoid afternoon slumps.
  • Recovery from intense work-outs, illnesses, and even childbirth!
  • Reduces or eliminates allergies.
  • Helps your hormone balance.
  • Reduces joint stiffness.
  • Aids avoidance of urinary tract infections.
  • Improves stamina.
  • Strengthens your stress response.
  • Prevents Type II Diabetes.
  • And much much more......

Your body absolutely craves the vast array of Macro-Nutrients and Micro-Nutrients that True SuperFruits give you. Did you know that your skin, your hair, your nails, and even your eyes are actually in a state of deterioration because of a lack of SuperFruits?

Sugars to Nutrient Ratio

Regular fruits, while they can provide some vitamins and minerals for your body, do not have quite the "punch" that SuperFruits give. Why? Because many fruits have the downside of what is called, "High Sugars to Nutrient Ratio". A great number of fruits simply contain a lot of fructose, and not enough powerful nutrients to offset the sugars. For example, oranges are super overrated. Sure, 100 years ago they were considered the go-to source for Vitamin C, but now we know that they don't even make it to the top 10 sources of Vitamin C.

The better sources of Vitamin C, such as Acerola Cherries and Camu Camu berries, contain 60 times as much Vitamin C as oranges, and they also pack an incredibly potent blend of other critical nutrients such as amino acids, antioxidants, phyto-nutrients, potassium, calcium, and iron.

SuperFruits are the most nutrient-rich fruits on the planet, and should always be organically grown or wild-harvested. They contain an exceptional amount of Vitamins and Minerals, phyto-nutrients, fiber, antioxidants, polyphenols, and bioflavonoids without a high fructose content.

So do you want to truly thrive? 

Do you want that extra "zing" of potent vitality? 

Then give yourself the gift of SuperFruits!

Everyday Benefits That Make Superfruits Super!

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is probably the vitamin that we are all most familiar with. Vitamin C is exceptional at preventing and beating the common cold. Most of us can testify to the incredible health benefits of consuming lemons, pomegranates, and grapefruit. Although all of these foods are excellent sources of Vitamin C, SuperFruits differ in that they often contain a much higher amount of Vitamin C per ounce. Camu Camu Berries, for instance, contain nearly 60 times the amount of Vitamin C compared to a common orange. Because of these high levels of Vitamin C, SuperFruits are essential for healing in all sorts of ways including wounds, repairing teeth and other bones.

Antioxidants

SuperFruits contain a phenomenal amount of antioxidants. By removing free radicals from the blood stream, antioxidants assist the body in protecting cells from disease and fighting oxidative damage attributed to aging. Antioxdants are known to improve skin tone, eyesight, and promote hair growth! Consuming foods rich in antioxidants on a daily basis can not only result in a longer life, but make you look better and actually enjoy your longer life! Some SuperFruits with excellent amounts of antioxidants include camu camu berries, acerola cherry, goji berry, noni fruit, schisandra berry, and mangosteen.

Phyto-nutrients

Phyto-nutrients are essential to your health in over a dozen interrelated ways! Did you know that right now as you're reading this, your eyes and optic nerve are relying on phyto-nutrients? So are all the other parts of your body! Studies are showing that phyto-nutrients can be responsible for reducing the risk for certain types of cancer, reducing asthma, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, and inflammation. So how do you get this broad spectrum of micro-nutrients into your life? 

First off, there are NO phyto-nutrients in animal products! Only plants contain phyto-nutrients! And in general, you can count on the intensely colored fruits and vegetables to be absolutely loaded with excellent quality phyto-nutrients. Especially the deeply hued reds, purples, magentas, violet colors. In general, the less sugary, deeply colored fruits such as camu-camu berries, acerola cherries, rose hips, cranberries, goji berries, blackberries, alma berries, mangosteen, noni, black currants, blueberries, and pomegranates are going to give you the most nutrient density per gram.

Fiber

It is estimate that 92% of people are deficient in this vital nutrient! The Standard American Diet consists of foods that are deficient in fiber, most notably, animal products such as meat, dairy, and eggs. Fiber is naturally occurring in fruits, vegetables, legumes and some grains. Did you know that by eating a plant-based diet that you can triple your amount of dietary fiber? Many diseases and illnesses can often be attributed to a lack of fiber. Fiber is responsible for healthy digestion that is in turn responsible for everything from positive mood to outer appearance. It is perhaps the #1 reason why we can be feeling less than our best. When we have healthy digestion, it is easier to feel happy, healthy and glowing! Superfruits are especially beneficial in this regard as they contain "soluble fiber." Soluble fiber dissolves in water, making it easy to digest and for the body to assimilate quickly and efficiently. This means that you can consume superfruits in vast quanities and it will be easy for your body to process and absorb nutrients!

Anti-Inflammatory

Less well-known is the fact that all the SuperFruits are excellent at preventing and decreasing excess inflammation. Previous studies show that as much as 2/3 of human ailments are directly or indirectly related to excess inflammation! Again, you want to focus your attention and purchases towards the least sweet fruits to get the most bang for your buck. Think of it like this: All fruits are somewhat beneficial, but the "sweet fruits" like mangoes and bananas are like a 55 lb sack full of sugar, and the vitamins and minerals are in an average ziplock bag tagging along with the sugars. It is so much more beneficial to have it the other way around...if any sugar at all! Remember, you want the Vitamins, Minerals, Fiber, Amino Acids, Phyto-nutrients, and Bioflavonoids to reduce inflammation in your body.

Polyphenols & Bioflavonoids

You're familiar with antioxidants and their amazing ability to fight illness and the damage that free radicals can cause in your body. Polyphenols are one of the three major groups of antioxidants, and are found in fruits and vegetables, concentrated near the outside layers of the plant (the dark skins). Polyphenols are what give fruits and vegetables their deep and bright colors along with their bitter, astringent, and aromatic properties! They help protect the plant from external damage from weather, sunlight, and pathogens and have similarly protective effect inside our bodies when consumed. Polyphenols make your food look good, taste good, and help you feel good!

As a great rule of thumb, the deeper the color of the fruit or vegetable on your plate the more polyphenols that are present in your meal. This can be a fantastic reason to celebrate while eating!    

Based on their structure, polyphenols can be broken down into further categorization. The first of the four categories of polyphenols is the bioflavonoid. Bioflavonoids are both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and are found in fruits, vegetables, legumes, red wine, and green tea!  

Many of our favorite foods like blueberries, apple skins, currants, and cherries contain a blend of the four varieties of polyphenols. So eat up! The more colorful, tasty varieties of fruits and vegetables you can get a day, the better your antioxidant and anti-inflammatory intake. What a gift!

Avoid the Dirty Dozen

What does this refer to? The "Dirty Dozen" are a list of fruits and vegetables that turn up in our stores most contaminated with pesticide residue, and ought to be avoided unless they are certified organic. Fruits in general, and berries in particular need to be Organically Grown! Why? Partly because they easily absorb toxic fertilizers and herbicides and pesticides. And partly because the commercial berries are barraged with chlorine bleach, and color enhancers and preservatives. A study described by Mind Body Green discovered that, last year, the most contaminated sample of strawberries had 20 different pesticides! Whoa!

SuperFruit Makes a Super You

If you intend to thrive in your life, then SuperFruits are your powerhouse ally in making that happen.  From fighting cancer to protecting your skin from ultraviolet radiation, SuperFruits are here to help you feel your best and do your best in all of your daily activities. Your best starts on your plate. Eating foods that lower inflammation, support healthy digestion, and maintain healthy blood sugar levels is your formula for success. Remember, you are worth it! Be your best version of You...an Upgraded You. Whatever you choose, you'll be doing yourself a big favor. Think of it like insurance against lots of illnesses, diseases, inflammatory conditions, and allergies. Give yourself the gift of SuperFruits!

Two Best Ways to Bring Superfruits Into Your Life

1. Buy as many fresh Organically grown berries, pomegranates, and cranberries as you can afford. 

2. Eat the powdered superfruits that simply are not available fresh, especially Camu Camu, Acerola Cherry, Rose Hips, Amla Berries, Goji Berries, Schisandra Berries and Mangosteen. One of the easiest ways to do this is by using a blend like Sarvaa Superfood's SuperFruit C at least 4 days a week. The only other really pure and clean SuperFruit Blend that we recommend is Pure Radiance C in case you want to compare it to Sarvaa's blend.
