2019 superfoods

 

Most of us lead hectic lifestyles, but with a few small changes, you can balance things out and boost your energy levels and overall health. Plus, if you haven’t already, it’s high time to activate your New Year’s Resolution. And if a healthy life isn’t motivating enough for you, I don’t know what is.  

This year’s superfood favorites are already exploding in popularity. Let’s take a look at some of the superfoods that are trending for 2019:


Matcha tea

The word ‘Matcha’ translates into powdered tea, which is exactly what it is. Matcha tea is a powdered tea made from the same plant (Camellia sinensis) as green tea, but using different production process. Matcha tea is also prepared differently -- it is dissolved in hot water while green tea is brewed.


Although it’s relatively new to the Western market, in Japan Matcha tea has been used ever since the 12th, and it’s a very popular drink even today. Pretty much like coffee.

Matcha tea is packed with antioxidants, so much, so that’s superior even to some of the most potent superfoods like goji berries, dark chocolate or blueberries! This superdrink has also been known to reduce anxiety and boost your metabolism.

 

Bone Broth

Bone broth’s superfood status is growing, and for a good reason. Although the name itself doesn’t sound too appealing, bone broth is extremely appetizing and nourishing. It tastes delicious, and it’s perfect for the first course. Bone broths are rich in minerals from bones, cartilage, and vegetables.


Many people can benefit from including bone broth into their daily diet. Studies have shown that homemade bone broth can cure a cold. Apart from that, bone broth can help you heal your leaky gut or any other gut problems you may have, and it is even recommended as a part of a diet for children who have autism. It is excellent for repairing your gut, but it’s also for boosting your immunity and preventing the problem in the first place.


Turmeric

The active turmeric compound, Curcumin is a close relative of the ginger. Turmeric was used in the Middle East and East India for centuries, and recently it has come to our attention as well.


It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and as such, it can help with many digestive, breathing and certain skin problems, it may also provide glow and luster to the skin. Turmeric may also revive your skin by bringing out its natural glow, positively affect tissue and collagen as well. The curcumin found in turmeric can help wounds heal by decreasing inflammation and oxidation. Even in small amounts, turmeric can help you digest fats (say, if you struggle with digestion after eating something greasy), it reduces gas and bloating, helps with nasal congestion, and can even calm down acne, eczema or psoriasis.

And that's why we decided to add Turmeric to our "Turmeric Soap" as well as "Charcoal & Turmeric Mask" . Not only we are getting the beautiful natural color in our soap but it provides many benefits for our skin. Our Turmeric Soap and Mask are both handmade in Hoffman Estates, Illinois with all natural plant-based organic ingredients, free of preservatives and all that bad stuff. Scented with pure essential oils for added aromatherapy benefits
