Superfoods That Help Fight Fatigue
We spend around a third of our lives in bed, yet many of us feel that our sleep is insufficient. With busy lives and work-filled days, many people rely on ‘quick fixes’ in the form of highly unhealthy and processed fizzy drinks, sugar bursting energy tablets as well as never ending cups of coffee. Because of the high sugar and caffeine content, these are truly ‘quick fixes’ and last only several hours, leaving the user feeling even worse once the sugar and caffeine hit has worn off, making it become a vicious and addictive cycle of repeating that quick fix feeling. Our Acai Berry, Aguaje, Baobab, Cacao Nibs and Mulberry superfoods all work in a sustainable way of keeping fatigue and energy levels up without that plummeting drop in sugar, as well as having a number of other health benefits, plus they’re so easy to incorporate into your lifestyle.
