Getting Through Winter With Native Australian Superfoods23/06/2017
Winter is well and truly upon us so we’ve put together a few ways you can keep warm and healthy over the next few months. It’s so important to ensure your body is getting the right nutrients to keep your immune system functioning well so keep reading for maximum benefits and to get the most out of your native Australian superfoods.
These are the shining heroes of your winter months. This ancient fruit boasts the highest amount of Vitamin C than any other fruit in the world (100 times more than an orange!), and it has outstanding antioxidant capabilities. Vitamin C is crucial for preventing the flu as well as for fighting off cold and flu symptoms and will help boost your immunity which keeps you functioning at your best. It’s also renowned for improving skin hydration levels, which during the winter is a must as skin can dry out more easily.
The easiest way to include this gem into your daily life is by adding a teaspoon of our Freeze Dried Kakadu Plum into your smoothies first thing in the morning.
