The famous saying, “you are what you eat” could not be truer. In the modern world today, we have more food options than ever before. It’s important to know the health benefits of certain foods so you can make smart choices to ensure you maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. The food you consume can greatly affect your body and mind.
Some foods can have highly beneficial effects which you should be aware of, as they can help certain parts of your body or even improve health problems you may experience. They can also have a preventative effect, protecting your body from harmful toxins and the deterring the development of diseases later in life.
The timeless benefits of turmeric
A staple of eastern cooking for hundreds of years, turmeric has a plethora of health benefits. Firstly, it has proven to dramatically increase the antioxidant capacity of the body. Antioxidants are beneficial as they protect your body by neutralising free radicals that can otherwise create damage in your body.
Curcumin is also a natural anti-inflammatory compound, so much so that its power matches the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs. Chronic inflammation can become a major problem as it causes pain, and can lead to the development of more serious diseases such as cancer, heart disease, metabolic syndrome and Alzheimer’s. You'll find our Golden Latte Mix a delicious way to obtain these benefits!
Matcha for the mind and body
Matcha has always had incredible health benefits, traditionally used in Chinese and Japanese tea and meditation ceremonies. High in antioxidants, Matcha is known to detoxify the body and burn calories. Aside from these physical benefits, Matcha has also proven to boost memory and concentration as well as increase energy levels and endurance.

Feel the Beets
High in immune-boosting vitamin C, fibre and potassium, beetroots are an excellent food to include in your diet. Potassium is essential as it helps maintain healthy muscle and nerve function. Vitamin B Folate is also present in beetroot, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects. Beetroot can, however, often be a messy food to eat and prepare due to its colour dye. So why not try including it in your diet in an easy, powder form through a refreshing beverage?
