We have all heard it before. If we load up on fresh fruits and vegetables, we will be zapped with perfect health and superior beauty.
But let’s be honest, how many of us are actually willing to give up our guilty pleasures just like that?
Though it sounds like a fair trade, we are only human and deserve some slack.
This is where superfoods come in.
The healthy industry has been going crazy raving about how they have the power to cure any disease and shortcoming known to man. And while they may sound a bit sketchy, the proof is in the pudding.
Find out how these six mind-boggling superfoods are the secret weapons to reaching your health and body goals.

If you have heard about wheatgrass before now, the conversation was probably linked to weight loss somehow. As its track record proves, wheatgrass is one of the best superfoods in the game if you are looking to purge your intestines, clear up your skin, and drop a few dress sizes along the way.
It is loaded with chlorophyll, amino acids, and the essential vitamins needed to keep your body up and running. Juicing just two tablespoons gives you the same health benefits as you would have after eating two full cups of greens!
Congratulations. You can finally stop pretending to like salads. And while you are at it, trash your fear about going bald or grey. Wheatgrass has been known to miraculously reverse greys, to repair severe hair damage, and to revitalize the scalp, sparing you of itchiness and pesky flakes.
2. Moringa Leaf.
If you are diabetic or are fighting a losing battle against your blood sugar levels, moringa leaf will help you settle the score. It is no wonder why this majestic superfood has been used in many Asian cultures to cure an array of health issues, like depression, liver damage, weak bones, fatigue, and digestive issues.
And if you suffer from breakout to breakout or wander the streets looking for the magic cure to heal your textured skin, allow moringa to do the honors. Moringa is a mere godsend and the skin’s most loyal and devoted ally, producing more collagen and reducing wrinkles in the process.
Imagine going plant-based and losing your once photogenic muscle gains because you couldn’t figure out how to meet your protein goals. Well, you can take a breather now because chlorella not only contains all nine essential amino acids, but it is also 60 percent protein.
Like its other buddies, it has an impressive fix of both vitamin and minerals, giving the body a drastic immune system boost. Chlorella can also be the knight in shining armor for ladies who experience intense headaches and cramps during their menstrual cycle. Good riddance Midol.
Admittedly, this one tastes a bit like dog food, but a little puppy chow is a small price to pay for so many health advantages. Spirulina has an antioxidant count that is out of this world, ridding the body of any threatening free radicals.
You can even count on this life-changing superfood to regulate blood sugar levels, prevent heart disease, boost metabolism, lose weight, and to get rid of those not-so-seasonal allergies.
Also, if you love your elders as much as you claim, gift them a package as well. As one of the most notable neuroprotectives, spirulina helps to prevent Alzheimer’s, dementia, and any sort of cognitive decline.
5. Matcha Green Tea.
If you want to get quicker, better, and smarter, you need to be indulging in matcha green tea every single morning. Not only does it taste delectable, but it will deliver on your caffeine fix without making you crash by noon.
Matcha will also provide some relief to cancer patients and those who may be at a higher risk of falling ill with prostate, breast, lung, skin, and colon cancers.
And for the athletes out there, this superfood can also boost your physical performance and help you burn more calories at the gym. No more hiding behind the treadmill.
The fact that it instantaneously combats bad breath is enough to label mint as a superfood, but to our great surprise, its blessings don’t stop there.
Survey says that if you regularly toss mint into your beverages, you will be the next in line to lose weight, think more clearly, absorb nutrients more effectively, fight off the common cold, and reduce the occurrence of asthma attacks.
And if that isn’t enough to get you on board with this superfood, maybe you will be swayed by its ability to lift, tone, and tighten the skin. Who knew that beauty smelled so good?
While each of these amazing superfoods holds their own set of health benefits, they all provide a lot of the same vitamins and minerals that most of us fail to get on a daily basis.
So whether you decide to choose just one of these gems to upgrade your life or if you are set on rolling with the whole team, you will soon end up looking and feeling like you have just discovered the fountain of youth.
