Super Foods. Food that will give more than just muscle mass gains.

A good buddy of mine wrote this up and he is all about nutrition when it comes to training, so I thought that I would pass it along as there is some good data in here.

These are a special group of naturally occurring fruits, berries and vegetables that are loaded with the nutrients that can help your body function at an optimal rate.
People may not recognize the benefits until someone eats it for a length of time or some scientific research is done to identify their amazing health benefits.
     Mangosteen has been used for thousands of years to support the health of people all over the world.
    ● May support a healthy immune response
● May Reduce fatigue
● May support cardiovascular health
● May support healthy body temperature
● May support a healthy mood
● May support skin health
● May support healthy circulation
● May support healthy gums
● May support the body’s ability to fight infections
● May support healthy joints
● May support a healthy pain response
● Nourishing the brain & nervous system
● May support a healthy inflammation response

Constituents of Mangosteen include:

● Minerals: Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Potassium
● Vitamins: Vitamin C, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Beta           carotene
● Phytochemicals: Proanthocyanidins, Catechins, Flavonoids, Polysaccharides, Sterols
● Xanthones: A-Mangostin, B-MANGOSTIN, 3-iSOMANGOSTIN, 9-hYDROXYCALABAXANTHONE, Gartanin, 8-Desoxygartanin
● Fatty Acids: Palmitic acid, Stearic acid, Palmitoleic acid, Oleic acid, Linoleic acid,  Linolenic acid, Arachidic acid, Gadoleic acid, Eicosadienoic acid

Plants such as Aloe Vera have also been used for thousands of years to treat burns and improve the immune response.

Health Benefits of Aloe Vera include:

  • Support a healthy immune system
  • Reduce harmful toxins
  • Increase absorption of nutrients
  • Enhance antioxidant support
  • Balance stomach acidity naturally
  • Soothe occasional muscle and joint discomfort
  • Now used in concentrated form to support the health of those with autoimmune disorders

The Acai Berry is another example.

  • Antioxidant Powerhouse: Full of antioxidants, acai berries have tested very well at defending the body by combating free radicals associated with disease and aging. Consumption of acai pulp and acai juice increases antioxidant concentration in the blood, which shows that the nutrients are effectively absorbed by the human body; these findings are the results of a 2008 study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
  • The Good Fats: Organic acai powder is a rich source of omega fatty acids (omega 3, 6, and 9) which are essential for human health. Omega-3 is the same essential fatty acid found in fatty fish, like salmon, which American diets often don’t have enough of. The combination of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids plays an important role in regulating metabolism and supporting heart health. These two essential fatty acids are required through diet since our bodies cannot produce them naturally. Acai powder contains omega-9 fatty acid in the form of oleic acid, which has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and lower LDL “bad” cholesterol levels.
  • Loaded with Nutrients: Acai berries are also an excellent source of amino acids, dietary fiber, calcium, and vitamin A. By weight, freeze-dried acai berry powder consists of nearly 8% amino acids, which help make proteins and support our metabolism. The powder’s rich dietary fiber content supports digestive health and keeps us feeling full longer. Calcium supports the development and structure of our bones, while vitamin A protects the eye’s retina.

                                           Mangosteen – Aloe – Acai

     Because these three Super Foods have such a long history of health enhancing benefits, NEWtritional Health Care decided to put all three in one fantastic product called Mangosteen Supreme. The results have been impressive to say the least. With so much antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic, and nutrient value, people are falling in love with this product.
Because everyone is beginning to understand the health benefits of fruit we also added some fruit juice powder to this formula to help with absorption. The countries whose populations consume the most fruit also have the longest lifespans. Many fruits contain special ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino-acids, essential fatty acids, protein and good carbohydrates. We call those the building blocks of life.
