Chlorella is a freshwater plant and like all freshwater flora, it originates from delicate ecosystems like lakes, rivers and ponds. It is composed of amino acids, proteins, essential fatty acids and nucleic acids.
The chlorella used in our superfood mix1 is chlorella vulgaris from the family of chlorellaceae and comes in a fine fresh green powder form.
Spirulina is also a freshwater plant and like all freshwater flora, it originates from delicate ecosystems like lakes, rivers and ponds.
Spirulina is packed with protein and it comes in a vivid blue-green colour thanks to an amazing pigment called phycocyanin.
Matcha and Green Tea
Matcha and green tea originate from the leaves of the camellia sinensis plant. While green tea comes from the main plant leaves, Matcha comes from the top leaves which makes it more concentrated.
The matcha and green tea leaves are processed separately: withered, rolled, fermented and dried to produce a fine powder which contains essential nutrients such as amino acids, flavonoids and catechins.
It is no secret that spinach is a green leafy vegetable, and as such is a super-healthy ingredient.
With a great earthy taste and deep colour, it brings both flavour and vibrancy to our superfood powder mix.1
Goji berries are red berries from the solanaceae flower family and have been used in China for more than 6,000 years.
These poignant red berries contain carotenoids, the same ingredients you can find in colourful foods like carrots and tomatoes. It is always good to remember to eat a diet varied in colours, and these berries definitely fit within an all rounded explosion of fruit and vegetable redness.
Pomegranate is a well-known shrub which grows red fruits full of seeds. The pomegranate seeds, sometimes described as ‘jewels’, are a vibrant ruby-red colour and have been used for thousands of years.
Pomegranate contains many nutrients such as polyphenols including tannins, catechins and gallocatechins; but most interestingly pomegranate is a good source of fibre.
Beetroot is an earthy vegetable with a deep vibrant colour. Its characteristic dark red intensity makes it a distinctive vegetable with not only a root colour but also a very deep taste.
Beetroot contains many vitamins and minerals including the lesser found ingredient nitrate: an inorganic component mostly consumed through water.
Vitamin C is known for its many health benefits. It can be found in a variety of fruits and vegetables such as: oranges, blackcurrant, broccoli and red and green peppers; and is also called ascorbic acid.
The most well-known health attribute of vitamin C is its contribution to a healthy immune system, but did you know it also plays a role in the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and protects against free radicals?1
And that is not all: vitamin C helps normal collagen formation which in turn supports healthy skin, teeth, cartilage, bones and even blood vessels.
Last but not least: vitamin C helps to maintain healthy energy levels.1
Truly a super little vitamin!
