FLAVOURED SPIRULINA POWDER A lot of spirulina powders out there seem the same; however this isn’t the case. It’s hard to be sure where your Spirulina comes from: if it’s a low grade or contains GMO’s. Brands could source from non-organic farms that compromise on the natural process of spirulina. At Nature’s Way we can assure you our Spirulina comes from premium 100% organic farms that follow stringent quality standards to ensure a high quality spirulina that delivers over 100 nutrients. Plus our natural tropical flavoured spirulina tastes great! So good you can drink it with just water! NAW_SuperFoods_Render_SPIRULINA-TROPICAL_10-14 CACAO POWDER When it comes to cacao powder, some are more superior to others.

With 81 vital ingredients and no nasty additives, the greens blend has all the benefits you expect from superfoods and more, giving you vitality, energy and nutrition for your everyday health and well-being.

3 Superfoods For Weight Loss

Rest assured this isn't going to be one of those "One Weird Tip For Burning Belly Fat" articles that tries to get you to hand over personal details or provide credit card details. Whilst there are a number of purported 'superfoods' out there that claim to help burn more fat, the following list of real superfoods and their claims for weight loss are actually, you know, based in reality.  

Superfoods For Weight Loss

 

1. Chia Seeds

Chia seeds promote weight loss in a number of ways, but most importantly due to their high fibre and protein content. Increasing your fibre intake can help with weight loss in two ways. Firstly, because soluble fibre is digested quite slowly: it provides a sustained energy release so that your body is less likely to store it as fat. Secondly, insoluble fibre is not digested by the body, yet helps promote a feeling of fullness which can help limit serving size and reduce snacking. The fibre in chia seeds can also help maintain blood sugar levels - also important for weight loss.  

2. Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is a fat. Traditionally, when trying to lose weight, we have been told to avoid fat. This thinking is changing. Including healthy fats in our diet and letting our body become used to using those healthy fats as a fuel source is an increasingly important part of many modern weight loss ideologies. Coconut Oil in particular is an  interesting weight loss fat - it is full of medium chain triglycerides, or 'MCTs' (most foods contain long chain triglycerides - 'LCTs'). MCTs are digested differently to LCTs, and this seems to offer greater fat loss properties. One study on coconut oil's weight loss effect showed that participants using coconut oil lost more weight than other participants using olive oil. A further study showed that coconut oil may lead to increased burning of calories throughout the day - coconut oil appears to have increased metabolism. Look for a cold pressed, organic coconut oil like Super Coconut Oil to ensure maximum flavour, purity and potency.  

3. Soy Protein

It isn't sexy or glamorous, and it's been around for years, but soy protein can aid in weight loss in a number of ways. It can help you feel full, reducing snacking behaviour. It has a low glycemic index, which means it is broken down slowly by the body, making it less likely to be stored as fat. Further, it has a similar absorption rate to the more commonly used whey protein, yet without the common bloating side effect whey can often cause (definitely a frustrating thing when you are trying to trim down). Finally, soy is rich in a range of vitamins and minerals that support metabolism and exercise performance, resulting in increased weight loss. Whey protein does not have this same nutritional profile. ------ This article was provided by our online health partner Health365.

5 Superfoods For Your Heart

Keeping your heart healthy is as much about putting the right nutrients in to your body as it is about keeping the wrong substances out.  Foods that contain saturated fats, salt and high levels of processed sugar are all "No-no's" (as is smoking). If you are concerned about your heart, eating well and avoiding the above foods and toxins may help. Eating more of the below 5 superfoods for a healthy heart may also be of benefit to overall heart health. Looking after your heart is serious business. As this article is being written, heart disease is the leading underlying cause of death in Australia. If you have serious concerns about heart health, talking to your doctor should be your first step. Eating the foods below may help support your heart, but just eating these foods and neglecting other lifestyle factors that can contribute to heart problems will not guarantee a healthy heart.  

5 Superfoods For Your Heart

 

1. Salmon

Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce your risk of heart disease according to the Australian Heart Foundation. Omega-3 may also help reduce inflammation of blood vessels and reduce blood clotting. Try our Chia-Crusted Salmon recipe for a tasty, healthy way to get more salmon into your diet.  

2. Chia Seeds

Chia Seeds are - like salmon - rich in omega-3. In fact, on a pund-for-pound basis, chia seeds contain more omega-3 than salmon. Furthermore, chia seeds are rich in fibre. Diets high in fibre can reduce the risk of heart disease. Try our Chia Cacao Coconut Cluster recipe for a treat that you won't believe is heart-healthy.  

3. Tofu and/or Soy Milk

Both of these food sources contain niacin, folate, calcium magnesium and potassium. These nutrients are crtitical to help support the heart. Try our Banana Split Smoothie recipe - a delicious way to drink soy milk and top up fibre, protein and antioxidants.  

4. Acai

Acai is packed with antioxidants. Antioxidants are important for helping prevent potential cellular damage caused by free radicals - unstable molecules that are present in our body and attack cells in an effort to stabilise themselves. This damage can cause inflammation, and antioxidants can thus protect our body from the inflammation. Inflammation can be an aggravating factor in heart disease. Preliminary studies also suggest acai may be helpful for reducing blood sugar levels and cholesterol levels. Try our Acai Berry Breakfast recipe for a heart healthy start to the date.  

5. Cacao

You may have heard of studies that suggest a potential link between daily (dark) chocolate consumption and heart health. This link is likely because dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa) is rich in polyphenols: substances that can help reduce clotting, blood pressure and inflammation. What you may not know is that dark chocolate, and the cocoa used to make it, are actually the nutritionally inferior by-products of raw cacao. Raw cacao is rich in a number of nutrients that are critical for supporting heart health. It is the base ingredient used to make cocoa / dark chocolate (cacao is processed and cooked to turn it into cocoa, whihc is then processed further to create dark chocolate. This processing and cooking destroys much of the original nutritional content, so choosing cacao over cocoa is a good idea). Try our Choc Chilli Cacao Mousse recipe for a decadent, heart-friendly dessert. ------ This article is presented by our online health partner Health365.

Try the below 3 stress-busting recipes from our Nature's Way SuperFoods Recipe hub.  

1. Maca Guaca

Maca provides a range of benefits, not the least of which is nutritional support during times of stress. Maca is a class of nutrient called an 'adaptogen'. Adaptogens are natural products that are considered to support the body during times of high stress and exertion. Maca provides key nutrients to help with mood, stress and relaxation. Furthermore, the avocado in this superfood guacamole recipe is rich in B Vitamins. Your body has an increased demand for B vitamins during times of prolonged stress. Try the Maca Guaca recipe now.  

2. Chia Cacao Coconut Clusters

Created by Scott Gooding and Luke Hines, you won't believe the Chia Cacao Coconut Clusters recipe is healthy! The recipe uses chia seeds, which are rich in B Vitamins (which we have already covered as being critical during times of stress). It also contains cacao, which is high in magnesium. Magnesium is critical for relaxation and muscle function... lack of magnesium can leave you restless, anxious and agitated. Finally, the recipe also contains almonds. Almonds are rich in vitamin E, which fights the free radicals associated with stress. Try our Chia Cacao Coconut Clusters Recipe now.  

3. Brain Booster Smoothie

This smoothie contains acai, which is rich in vitamin C. Vitamin C  can help reduce the physical and psychological effects of stress. Further, the recipe contains coconut water.
