Super Nutrition Blog Posts
A Blog about Herbs, Superfoods, Whole Foods, Raw Foods, and some other Natural Products that can can help improve your Health, Nutrition and your Lifestyle.
Apologies that this month's newsletter is a little late. I have been busy producing some videos based on interviews with David Ash, nutritionist and author of 'Love Your Liver' and creating the Indigo Herbs TV channel. More on this below.
This month is (according to The Sleep Council) national bed month and in this newsletter we will be taking a little peek at the latest research on our sleeping habits and looking at some natural products associated with better sleeping.
Welcome (or welcome back) to our newsletter. In this month's newsletter we'll be taking a look at ideas for a winter health booster, reviewing Indigo Herb's experiences at the Complimentary & Alternative Medicine Expo and of course there's your monthly discount code. Enjoy!
What’s the point of a blog when the mad woman doesn’t update it? Well if I explained about the 35 litres of paint being put on walls, full house move, school holidays, dad access visits ... and please don’t ask about the fun and games with my old laptop and of course my Internet connection. Talk about stress, phew! That's the excuses made, Now I’m back! Welcome to the Indigo Blog, ad hoc blogging about Superfoods in the daily diet of a very ordinary madwoman.
Well, it's my 3rd outing as a blogger, and I have to admit I quite look forward to sharing my thoughts in this way. It's really good to be able to focus on food, health and nutrition, but in such a way that things need to make sense to anyone reading this. In other words, coherence rather than chaos needs to be the order of the day. The chaos this week involves being generously offered local authority housing with extra disabled facilities. It's brilliant news, but of course I'm totally flat out organising things, because I have to move in 2 weeks' time! So far this week, I can say honestly I have missed 2 days when I should have had my healing smoothies. I have run out of fruit, and did not have time to go shopping! Planning is an important part of smoothie recipes, especially on a trial period, or things go awry very quickly.
This month we have a fantastic endorsement of our products all the way from Mount Everest, a new blogger to introduce, and some information about our favourite events in case you want to come and play with us in a field!
Also as usual you will find a monthly discount code.
Welcome to the new Indigo Herbs blog about my superfood diet trial! I'd like to introduce myself. My name's Krissy, 41 year old mum of 3. Although I'm pretty good friends with all at Indigo Herbs, I've always been very sceptical about all these groovy superfood supplements, and whether the cost reflects the health benefits they claim to offer. So when I was invited to try a superfood diet for myself, and write a down-to-earth, honest, unbiased blog, I was up for it.
In this blog post I’m going to explain why Wheatgrass, Barley Grass, Spirulina and Chlorella are the top 4 superfoods and how they can benefit your diet, lifestyle and general wellbeing.
Super Food powders are generally a plant or a fruit or even a root ground up into a powder, this obviously making it easier to ingest. Superfood powders are powders which generally contain a massive amount of vital nutrients for your body, hence how they get the tag "Super". For example, one of the many Superfood powders sold by Indigo Herbs is Goji Berry powder, this Super Food powder is "super" as it is rich in: Beta-carotene + vitamin C, B1, B2, other vitamins and minerals + antioxidants and amino acids. Another quick example of incredibly potent and effective Super Food powders would be: Wheatgrass powder, barley grass powder, Spirulina powder, Chorella powder and Acai powder.
Why use Wheatgrass powder?
The vogue for taking wheatgrass is really taking off, given that its so good for you. When wheatgrass was first taken you had to grow fresh wheatgrass in trays and then juice it to make a very small shot of wheatgrass juice. It took a lot of time and energy to plant, then grow the trays of wheatgrass and finally to juice the wheatgrass before drinking it. What's more, the process didn't stop there, as the juicer needed to be cleaned ! Such a time heavy process was enough to put one off wheatgrass altogether. This is still a popular way of buying wheatgrass shots in a juce bar or in wholefood cafes, but is impractical for a lot of people at home.
