Integrating Superfoods into your daily diet is simple and easy. Superfoods are particularly dense in nutrients, and free from any bulking agents or fillers. By adding superfoods to your daily diet you can fortify your food with super nutrition. Try replacing breakfast with a superfood smoothie. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk, alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices.
Then additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties, the powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended or shaken until fully mixed in. Superfoods can be easily added to breakfast cereals such as porridge, muesli or granola. The powders, berries, grains, seeds and nuts can also be added to soups, salads, stews, curries, and used as toppings for any meal.
Think about what you can replace in your daily diet with Superfoods. For full instructions go to our How to use Superfoods page.

Alfalfa is very easy to grow as a cultivated crop as it doesn't need any extra fertilisation than what is in the soil already. After the Organic crop has reached maturity, the top leaves are stripped, sorted, and separated for quality. After the best leaves have been selected then they are freeze dried before being milled into a fine powder. This Alfalfa powder is then tested for heavy metals and toxins before being shipped.
People with autoimmune disease, gout and women who are pregnant should avoid taking Alfalfa Leaf Powder.
Care should be taken when introducing a new Superfood into your diet as overindulgence could lead to symptoms of detoxification.
