5 superfoods you get when using pachamama cbd products
There are a few things we do here at Pachamama that ensure we give you the best possible CBD products. We use all-natural single-origin hemp, an air extraction process and leverage the entourage effect with our full spectrum CBD oil. But we like to go beyond these high standards that we’ve set for ourselves by perfectly pairing our CBD with exactly the right superfoods. This marriage of healing CBD and wellness-promoting superfoods is a match made in heaven, and, with the right combination, you’ll get many more benefits than either can give you on their own.
Here are five superfoods we like to use in our CBD products — as well as reasons for why we use them.
goji berries and cacao
Goji berries are incredibly nutrient-packed, small, red berries, with a long history as a key component in traditional Chinese medicine. Not only are goji berries an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin A, fiber, iron and zinc, but they also contain all eight essential amino acids. All of these nutrients give goji berries a serious wellness punch and help protect you from the flu. These properties are enough to consider the goji berry a superfood on their own, but the sweet and sour berry’s health benefits don’t stop there.
Goji berries also have high levels of antioxidants called zeaxanthin, which protects skin and eyes from exposure to pollution. And studies have shown that goji berries aid in the recovery of testosterone levels, too, which can help improve both sexual and athletic performance in men.
Cacao is good for a whole lot more than making delicious treats and beverages. Cacao is one of the best naturally occurring sources of antioxidants called polyphenols. Polyphenols can help maintain a healthy blood pressure by enhancing their overall performance. Additionally, the polyphenols, caffeine and other nutrients in cacao are effective mood boosters that relieve stress and increase endorphin effectiveness.
Green tea and Echinacea
Often referred to as the world’s healthiest drink, green tea’s ranking as a superfood is unmatched. By weight, green tea is nearly 30 percent polyphenols, granting it unparalleled antioxidative properties. And that’s not all. Green tea also contains high levels of another antioxidant called Epigallocatechin Gallate, or EGCG. EGCG reduces the formation of free radicals, which are atoms that damage cells in the body and cause illness and aging. With these anti-aging effects, green tea may truly be the elixir of life.
Echinacea is best known as an all-natural herbal remedy for the common cold, and the indigenous peoples of North America have used this flowering plant as a treatment for a variety of illnesses for thousands of years. Echinacea derives its healing from its ability to increase the number of white blood cells in the body, which are key to fighting off most common illnesses. On top of that, echinacea’s anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties can help you get through even the worst kind of sick days.
This isn’t the staple herb you find in most Italian dishes, so don’t be confused. Instead, holy basil is a powerful adaptogen, a natural substance that helps the body adapt to stressful situations, soothing the body and mind while allowing you to recenter. Holy basil also has antioxidative and antibacterial properties to keep your body toxin-free while fighting off infection.
These are just a few of the superfoods that we put in our CBD products, but we also infuse all of our products with other natural plant extracts that can help you with anything from getting over a cold or to get those creative juices flowing.
