Due to soil depletion and the fact that many Americans don’t eat recommended amounts of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and other nutrient-dense superfoods, the importance of organic grains and organic superfood powders is increasing.
What Are Organic Superfoods?
Organic foods are free from pesticides, genetic modification, hormones, antibiotics, and additives. In other words, organic products are some of the most natural foods you’ll find. Organic whole grains and organic superfood powders provide more fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients than many other foods. Superfood powders are created from nutrient-dense:
- Spinach, kale, and other leafy greens
- Other fruits and vegetables
- Vegetable juices
- Whole grains
- Flaxseeds and chia seeds
- Other nuts and seeds
- Plant oils
Many foods and supplements in stores are NOT organic, so check food labels to be sure. Hallelujah Diet foods and supplements containing superfood powders are indeed organic.
Benefits of Organic Grains and Superfood Powders
Vitamin and Mineral Repletion
Eating organic whole grains and ingesting organic superfood powders helps replace essential nutrients your body may be deficient in. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says nutrients many Americans don’t get enough of include:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin 12
Some Americans are also deficient in folate, vitamin E, and vitamin A, the CDC notes. When following a plant-based diet to improve your health, superfood powders help increase your intake of iron, zinc, magnesium, calcium, B vitamins and vitamin D, which are crucial nutrients for vegan dieters. Whole grains and superfood powders are rich in these and other essential vitamins and minerals needed to increase your stores or prevent deficiencies.
A Boost in Energy
Ingesting a larger variety and quantity of nutrients from organic grains and superfood powders means more energy throughout the entire day—especially if you’re deficient in certain nutrients. Even if you’re not, the abundance of energizing vitamins and minerals in superfood powders maximizes energy that sustains you all day long.
A Stronger Immune System
Ingesting immune-boosting protein, vitamins, and minerals from superfood powders strengthens your immune system, making it easier to ward off disease, illness, and infection. God created your immune system to protect you and keep you healthy, but your body requires the right amounts of essential nutrients to do so.
Reduced Disease Risks
Organic superfoods and whole grains are loaded with fiber, a nutrient many Americans don’t get enough of. In fact, a 2017 study published in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine reports that while fiber is associated with numerous health benefits, just 5% of the U.S. population meet fiber requirements.
Supplementing with whole grains and superfood powders helps you reach daily fiber goals, which range from 21 to 38 grams per day for adults, depending on your age and gender. Researchers who conducted the study found that dietary fiber is associated with better digestive health and a lower risk of:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Type 2 diabetes
- Some cancers
Hallelujah Diet supplements help bridge the gap of what your diet may lack and are made from numerous fiber-rich whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, and other superfoods.
A Healthy Body Weight
Fiber keeps you full longer and isn’t fully absorbed or digested by your body. Due to this and other reasons, fiber aids in healthy weight management. A 2017 review published in the journal Nutrients found that fiber supplementation helps reduce food intake, waist circumference, body weight, and body mass index. Aim to ingest at least 21 to 25 grams of fiber daily if you’re a woman, and 30 to 38 grams per day if you’re a man.
