The word ‘superfood’ has been widely used lately and for good reason. Superfoods are foods that have high nutrient or phytochemical contents, which enhance health and wellbeing. Greens, blueberries, acai berries, hot peppers, hemp, all of these foods and more are considered to be quite super.
Sambazon, a company that produces fresh juices, smoothies and frozen products caught on very quickly to the excitement of superfoods and has since created concoctions filled to the brim with these health promoting foods.
Sambazon promises that their products, which include Energy – Mocha Java, an energizing beverage filled with acai, chocolate and fair-trade coffee and Breakfast Blend, a superfood smoothie which contains four grams of appetite sating fiber and healthy omega-3 fatty acids from acai berries and chia seeds, are of the highest quality from Amazon fruits and botanicals so as to reap the highest levels of bio-available nutrition. Sambazon also promotes high consciousness for people and the planet, supporting 10,000 family farmers and two million acres of Amazon rainforest, hence why the company’s name is in fact Sambazon – standing for sustainable management of the Brazilian Amazon.
One of the main superfoods lurking within all of Sambazon’s drinks is acai, a berry that is higher in antioxidants that cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and blueberries. Antioxidants help defend the body against life’s stressors and protect cells from free radicals that are harmful byproducts produced by the body. Eating a diet high in antioxidants, which can easily be done when drinking Sambazon, may interfere with aging and may lessen the destructive power of some diseases, such as heart disease and cancer.
By coupling acai with various other high antioxidant superfoods, Sambazon has created a one-two punch to ward off illness and promote revving energy and health.
If you’re worried that you won’t be able to consume these drinks due to food allergies, rest assured that these products are USDA Organic, Non-GMO, Ecocert Fair Trade, Vegan, Dairy-Free and Gluten-Free.
When imbibing in one of Sambazon’s delicious drinks, not only will you feel fantastic from the health properties lurking within, but you will also feel a sense of calm knowing that the company you’re supporting is doing everything in their power to protect the environmental and social wellbeing of the Brazilian Amazon and its people.
