Superfoods are believed to contain a higher level and broader range of nutrients, more than any other foods. Many of these are considered to be adaptogens: a class of plants that not only ‘adapt’ to their environment to survive but adapt to the internal chemistry of your body to redress its imbalances.

Most superfoods contain large amounts of sustenance to fuel and nurture the body which is why I always feel so energized after I drink this every day! The superfoods give your body essential fatty acids, proteins, minerals, digestive enzymes, antioxidants and vitamins. The adaptogenic properties indirectly target the nervous systems, balancing damaging levels of estrogen, insulin and cortisol (hormones that significantly increase weight gain).
