What are Superfoods?
Superfoods are nutritionally dense, loaded with vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. Occasionally these foods come from dairy or fish, but mostly are plant-based. Along with giving your body high-quality fitness energy, foods considered superfoods can help with digestive disorders and diabetes, heart disease, and more. They can even help people lose weight faster.
How superfoods work pre – and post - Workout
Eaten before a fitness activity, superfoods can maximize gains, boost performance and increase endurance. Typically for lighter exercise, 200 calories an hour or so prior is suggested, and 300 calories will suffice for a more intense work-out. Superfoods are also beneficial post-fitness, helping your body recover, rehydrate, and replace lost nutrients.
