The term ‘superfood’ is loosely translated to food with an exceptional nutrient density. Superfoods offer various health benefits due to being rich in fibre, antioxidants and fatty acids.
Fruits and vegetables like broccoli and blueberries are considered superfoods to some degree, but there’s more than that that begs to be explored.
Kerala Ayurveda provides a wide range of organic superfood products that are 100% organic and are of Indian origin.
The most popular Indian superfoods offered by Kerala Ayurveda include Triphala powder,forest honey and organic henna. These organic and healthy superfoods support digestion, deliver antioxidants to the body, improve immunity and ensure a healthy scalp and hair. You can also take these superfoods for energy as well as skin benefits.
How are organic Indian superfoods different from superfoods of the west?
Indian superfoods have been around for thousands of years, long before ‘superfood’ was a thing. As an integral part of Ayurveda tradition, these superfoods help in preventing various health conditions and treating the manifested diseases.
Indian superfoods are grown and harvested in their intrinsic form, unlike superfoods from the west that are engineered or genetically modified to enhance their nutrition. There’s nothing wrong with that though. However, a lot of research and resources go into producing these superfoods, which make them super-expensive for consumers.
On the other hand, Indian superfoods are available at very reasonable prices, especially at Kerala Ayurveda. Plus, you also get flat shipping on pan-India orders.
