In September of last year, Vitasave.ca went offline to bring the same great products, service and smiles to the high street. The first Vitasave.ca brick and mortar store is nestled in the heart of North Vancouver, BC and in addition to top quality products, low prices and awesome health educators, there are eight, delicious and highly nutritious superfood smoothies to keep you nourished and glowing by the glassful.
What are superfoods?
Superfoods are nutrient dense foods. This simply refers to the ratio of macronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phyto-chemicals) per calorie.
Superfoods provide the body with endless benefits, so what's the quickest and easiest way to consume them? In one of our deliciously wholesome, 100% organic, plant based superfood smoothies available from our rocking, in store smoothie bar!
This smoothie will not only keep you from dreaming by boosting your brain function but it will help to get you closer to that body you've been dreaming of!
With a combination of unique fatty acids that help boost brain function, increase energy and assist with fat loss, the coconut dream superfood smoothie is craving crusher that will keep you fit and fired up. Coconuts are high in medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), a unique form of dietary fat molecules that are rapidly absorbed by the body and more quickly metabolized (burned) as fuel.
The result of this accelerated metabolic conversion is that instead of being stored as fat, the calories contained in MCTs are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use by organs and muscles. MCTs have also been shown to suppress appetite, which is helpful for those attempting to lower their intake of total calories! Chia seeds are 40% fiber, by weight.
This makes them one of the best sources of fiber in the world. Almost all of the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber. They can absorb up to 10-12 times their weight in water, becoming gel-like and expanding in your stomach. Theoretically, this should increase fullness, slow absorption of your food and help you automatically eat fewer calories.
Maca root powder is a powerful adaptogen that helps to balance hormones in both men and women. It also works to increase energy and stamina, improve sexual function and boost memory and focus.
Cacao nibs are one of the highest sources of antioxidants and just a one ounce serving provides 64mg of magnesium, making it one of the best dietary sources. Magnesium promotes protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function and helps to control blood glucose levels.
