Discover the Best Superfoods for Optimal Health and Nutrition

Here at Pure Green, our philosophy is simple. Our mission is to build healthier communities around the globe by connecting people with superfoods.

When discussing the best superfoods, it’s essential to highlight that these are foods exceptionally high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients beneficial for health. Some of the top superfoods include leafy greens like kale and spinach, which are rich in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as fiber and iron. Berries, such as blueberries, strawberries, and acai berries, are packed with antioxidants that help fight inflammation and protect the body from free radicals.

Seeds like chia, flaxseed, and hemp are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which are crucial for heart health. Other superfoods like quinoa, almonds, and avocados are not only nutrient-dense but also provide healthy fats and proteins. Including a variety of these superfoods in your diet can contribute to overall health, boost energy levels, and may help prevent chronic diseases.

At Pure Green, we incorporate these powerful ingredients into our products, ensuring that each item we offer is not only delicious but also packed with the nutritional benefits of the best superfoods available.

We’re constantly striving towards this goal, and our superfood smoothie blends and range of healthy cold-pressed juices is a reflection of this commitment. But just what is a superfood? And what are some of the best ones out there? Read on to get all these answers, and more…


A superfood is basically what it sounds like. These are the cream of the crop (without the cream) – the healthiest of healthy foods. There are a lot of different superfoods out there, and each has different benefits to offer. What brings them all together under the superfood umbrella is that each is packed full of essential nutrients, vitamins or minerals imperative for your body’s health and wellbeing.


Superfoods are wonderful ingredients that help keep your body functioning at its best. You can think of them as natural medicines to prevent and aid in the fight against disease and illness. That’s why it’s important for each of us to consume superfoods every day.

Sounds difficult? It really isn’t. Superfoods are easy to incorporate into your diet, and our superfood smoothies just go to show how simple it really is. Each of our smoothies and juices have been carefully designed to be nutritional powerhouses, formed with superfood ingredients selected for their healthy benefits. From kale to cayenne, here we’ve listed the top 10 Superfoods that you can find in your next Pure Green juice or smoothie.

  • 3g protein

As if those numbers weren’t impressive enough, a cup of kale also contains:

Ginger is a spicy, sweet root native to Southeast Asia. We all know that ginger is delicious, and you are probably familiar with its culinary uses, but who knew ginger had powerful medicinal properties as well?

Ginger root, and ginger juice has actually been used for centuries as a natural restorative and key component in ayurvedic medicine, and is now being lauded by modern day scientists for the plethora of health benefits it brings. Let’s have a quick look at some of the main ones here.

Improves Digestion

Ginger was used by the ancient Greeks as a digestive aid, and for good reason. Ginger performs miracles when it comes to digestive health. Consumed regularly, ginger boosts metabolism to ensure your digestive system is running smoothly. In the short term, it also has been shown to help combat acid reflux, bloating and constipation.

Boosts Immunity

In the fight against cold and flu season, we all know that ginger is the number one go-to superfood. Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory  with antibacterial properties. This combination naturally aids the body’s defense mechanism from the inside out to help boost natural immunity. 

Joint Pain

The anti-inflammatory properties of ginger also have proven effects on the treatment of joint pain. Osteoarthritis sufferers may find it helps them in both pain management, as well as reducing swelling and inflammation.

Lemon is one we should all be familiar with. Native to Asia, the versatility of the humble lemon has led to it finding its home in kitchens around the world.

We use this bright, tart fruit to bring life to fruit salads, in cooking, in cold-pressed juices and savory meals. But did you know lemon was actually a superfood as well?

Lemon is perhaps best known for containing large quantities of Vitamin C. In fact, depending on the size, one lemon contains 139% of your daily recommended intake of Vitamin C. All for only 22 calories.

Healthy Benefits of Vitamin C
So, what’s all the fuss about Vitamin C, anyway? Well this little understood vitamin is actually what helps your body grow and repair itself. This means it is responsible for quite a lot of body processes, so let’s just go through them quickly here:

  • Boosts collagen growth, combating wrinkles and aging.
  • Supports immune functions, to fight diseases.
  • Fights against free radicals decreasing inflammation
  • Body tissue repair, aiding healing and wound repair
  • Strengthens tissues ensuring strong bones, teeth and cartilage

Belonging to the same family as ginger, turmeric is another root vegetable in the superfood squad. While you may be more familiar with turmeric in it’s dry powdered form, turmeric actually starts it’s life as a small, bright orange, strange looking tuber-like root. But don’t be deceived, turmeric has shot to superfood status in recent years.

Scientists have discovered large amounts of phytochemicals in turmeric called curcuminoids. One of these, called curcumin, is a powerful, natural antioxidant, and shows promise in the fight against inflammation and other inflammatory diseases.

It doesn’t stop there though. Scientific study into this interesting ingredient is relatively new. There’s also ongoing research as to the potential hope of curcumin as a safe, natural player in the fight against alzheimers, among other neurological diseases.

The Flax was first grown in Egypt, but has since spread around the world. With it went the flaxseed, a nutritional powerhouse in the form of a teeny tiny small brown seed, also known as linseed.

Flaxseed, like other nut and seed superfoods, is high in omega-3 fatty acids. It’s also full of fiber, as well as being rich in compounds called lignans. Let’s see how each of these can help you.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

These important fats are also found in walnuts and salmon. Omega-3 Fatty Acids are called ‘essential fats’ – because unlike other less desirable fats these can’t be made by the body, and must be consumed in the form of food. These good fats are important, among other things, for creating and maintaining the very structure of your cells!


Fiber is just one of those essential compounds of foods, and a miracle worker for gut health. Fiber regulates bowel movements and keeps your digestive system working smoothly. It also fills you up, promoting weight loss and weight maintenance.


Are you asking yourself what in the world is a lignan? This fascinating compound forms naturally in flaxseeds. While research into Lignans is relatively new, it is believed to have cancer-fighting properties and have particular benefits in regards to breast cancer and estrogen regulation.

Remember, in order to get the benefits from flax seeds it’s important to consume them ground rather than whole. You can use a coffee grinder, or a good old mortar and pestle works too. Don’t have time to grind your own flaxseeds? Don’t worry – just blend some up in your next smoothie to get the same effect.

This tiny, edible seed comes from the plant salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family. The origins of this plant come from central Mexico, but these tiny seeds have taken the world by storm in recent years. These seeds pack a powerful nutritional punch. Just one single one ounce serve contains:

  • 11g fiber
  • 4g protein
  • 9g fat (5g of these being omega-3 essential fats)
  • 18% daily recommended intake calcium
  • 30% daily recommended intake manganese
  • 30% daily recommended intake magnesium
  • 27% daily recommended intake phosphorus

They are also high in vitamin B1, B2 and B3. Chia seeds not only provide a great texture to juices and smoothies, but their superfood status means they are a great complement to any diet. They have been linked to a decreased risk of diabetes and heart disease, as well as being great for digestive health. They are also great for weight loss, as their gelatinous state helps keep your tummy fuller for longer.
