What Are Red Superfoods and Why You Should Be Eating Them!

Chances are, you’ve probably heard of some of the health benefits of green superfoods. But what exactly are red superfoods?

What Are Red Superfoods and How Are They Different From Green Superfoods?

Packed with antioxidants, vitamins, enzymes, and minerals -- these superfoods are known for their rich flavors and detoxifying benefits.

Read on and learn everything you need to know about red superfoods.

Bursting with Berries (and Antioxidants! )

Berries make up a large portion of the red superfood family. In fact, many red superfood mixes gain their flavor and health benefits from raspberries, blueberries, acai berries and bilberries. As you may already know, berries are very high in antioxidants that help our immune systems, skin, eyes, and hearts. Polyphenols found in berries have also been linked to benefits such as lowering blood pressure and increasing bone density health.

Flavorful Fruits

Unlike green superfoods, red superfoods are naturally sweet. Green superfoods largely consist of bitter vegetables like spinach, lettuce, kale, and broccoli. Red superfoods consist of a flavorful variety of berries and other sweet fruits like apples, pomegranates, and cherries. If you’re looking to cut down on your added sugars, red superfoods can be great alternatives. Red superfood mixes can replace sweeteners in smoothies, desserts, granolas, and juices.

Deliciously Detoxifying

One red superfood, beets, are known to have many health benefits for your liver. One of the nutrients found in beets, betaine, helps protect cells and maintain overall healthy liver function. It has also been shown to protect the liver from the buildup harmful fat deposits in studies. Another cleansing ingredient, pectin, helps rid the body of old toxins. Beets also contain nutrients that fight inflammation in the body and promote detoxification.

Easy on the Eyes

Red bell peppers, another superfood, are very high in Vitamin A which helps keep our vision sharp and eye healthy. Since Vitamin A improves vision, it can help you see better at night. Red bell peppers also contain enzymes called lutein, which protect aging eyes from vision problems like cataracts and macular degeneration that leads to blindness.

Not to mention, one cup of bell peppers contains only 45 calories and your daily Vitamin A requirement!

Red superfoods are also great for joint health and mobility. Cherries and papaya are just a couple of the red foods that help soothe pain and inflammation to help your joints function comfortably.

Papayas are the only and only source of an enzyme called papain that can help reduce pain caused by inflammation, burns, cuts, bruises, and sprains. It can also help with fluid retention and overall mobility.

Cherries are also showing promising results for those who suffer from inflammation and arthritis. Cherries contain the antioxidant anthocyanin which helps reduce inflammation. One study found that cherries reduced the amount of gout attacks, suffered by people with painful inflammatory arthritis, by as much as 35%. 

Incorporate some of these red superfoods into your daily meals or make the most of all the red superfoods together with a mix to give your body a burst of health and vitality. No matter how you choose to incorporate these foods, one thing is for sure: your body will thank you for it! Also, for your daily dose of red super foods, keep an eye out for brand new Super Food Red product coming out next week!
