Superfoods for Sustained Energy & Stamina

Feeling tired most of the time? Not sure how to build stamina and performance for your workout? Making wise food choices is definitely a MUST to overcome tiredness and to feel energetic (and positive!) throughout the day. Look for whole foods that contain these 4 energy-boosting nutrients that are necessary for the body to function optimally, beat fatigue and speed up body recovery: 

1. Good Carbs 

Good carbohydrates (or complex carbs) like whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, vegetables provide longer-lasting energy than simple carbs such as white rice, white sugar, refined flours, white bread. Consuming simple carbs lead to blood sugar spikes and crashes, providing only short bursts of energy as compared to the more sustained energy provided by complex carbs. Including a variety of whole foods like whole grains, vegetables, nuts & seeds help keep your energy levels up for longer periods while making you feel full longer. Try our range of energy-sustaining superfoods such as Quinoa Seeds, Chia Seeds, and kickstart your mornings with nutritionist-crafted Muesli Porridge, Purple Corn-Quinoa Cereal Mix.

2. Quality Protein

Getting quality protein is important for everyone, not just athletes. Quality protein intake, comprising all essential amino acids, is important for tissue or muscle growth, repair/recovery and development - this is a contributing factor towards having sufficient energy for your physical activities and workouts. And did you know that plant-based proteins are far healthier than animal proteins? Simply because plant-based proteins pack more nutrients, fewer calories and they have something that animal proteins do not have - fiber! You may ask - can a balanced plant-based diet provide you with enough protein? Absolutely yes! Contrary to popular belief, there has never been a proven case of protein deficiency in vegans or vegetarians. Some of the best athletes in the world are vegans or vegetarians!  To begin your journey of consuming quality plant-based protein with all essential amino acids, we recommend Quinoa Seeds, Plant Protein Powder, Chia Seeds, Sacha Inchi Seeds, Muesli Porridge, Quinoa Puff, Instant Quinoa Powder.

3. Vitamins & Minerals

Studies have shown that a lack of vitamins and minerals (usually a result of poor diet choices) can lead to fatigue, tiredness and low energy levels, especially for the elderly people and pregnant women. Fortunately, if you are consuming sufficient plant-based whole foods, you will likely not run the risk of vitamin- or mineral- deficiency. It is important to note that whole foods (from mother Nature) are more efficiently absorbed by the body than supplement pills which consist of isolated nutrients. We definitely recommend whole superfoods rich in a wide array of vitamins and minerals : Moringa Leaf Powder ( a natural multivitamin), Camu-Camu Berry Powder, Acai Berry PowderRaw Cacao Powder, Quinoa Seeds, Chia Seeds. Dried fruits like Goji Berries, Figs, Apricots, Mulberries, Inca Golden Berries are also concentrated sources of vitamins, minerals and good carbs.

If you are a vegan or vegetarian who is in need of some Vitamin B12 supplementation - we recommend our yummy Nutritional Yeast which has the complete set of B vitamins including Vitamin B12. And for Vitamin D, the best source is still the sun. For alternative sources of Vitamin D (in situations where you are not able to get enough sun exposure regularly), try consuming plant-based Vitamin D foods such as mushrooms and our Vegan Dark Chocolates

4. Adaptogens

Adaptogens are plant substances (often herbs) that have been found to help our bodies manage stress, anxiety, fatigue and promote overall wellbeing. Adaptogens like  Maca Root Powder, a superfood ginseng from the Peruvian Andes, helps balance our hormones which affects our moods, energy levels, sexual function and even sleep. Adaptogens can gradually improve the overall ability of the entire body to take on challenging situations and combat both physical and mental fatigue.
