I find the topic of superfruits to be highly intriguing. In the U.S., it seems that nearly every month there is a new craze based on the newfound awareness of fruit from some far away, exotic place. It is mind-boggling how one can go to an Asian market and see hundreds of varieties of fruits, yet in the United States, fruits are virtually identical everywhere you go.
Apples, bananas, oranges, seedless grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe, raspberries, blueberries, and the occasional mango. Why is this the case? Perhaps due to a handful of too-big-to-fail corporate conglomerates controlling the entire food supply. We need to start providing government subsidies to farmers that are actively encouraging biodiversity. Growing the same crops over & over results in mineral deficient topsoil, ultimately causing empty food. I think this is where the idea for the term ‘superfruit’ originated.
Compared to the plethora of mineral deficient bananas in America, a wild nutrient-dense berry from the Amazon starts to sound pretty appealing. Considering the rich mineral content of Pürblack shilajit, as well as its ability to aid in assimilating nutrients from food, it makes perfect sense to combine these superfruits with shilajit for optimum well-being.
Acai is arguably one of the most popular superfruits to have emerged in recent years, and rightly so as acai has been shown to cause death to cancer cells. This deep purple berry is also rich in potent anthocyanins, as well as ranking quite high on the oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) scale.
Also present are an abundance of fatty acids that ultimately reduce inflammation in the body. Consider that chronic inflammation goes under the pseudonym ‘silent killer’, and now you know why acai is so bodacious.
Baobab is one of my favorite fruits. It comes from a very aesthetically pleasing tree in southern Africa; pods grow on the tree, and when broken over reveal very interesting contents. Baobab comes already in powder form, as when the pods are opened one can see little chunks of powder clumped together. This is fantastic news, as I like to eat food that is as close to nature as possible.
Baobab is incredibly rich in dietary fiber, has more potassium than a banana, and twice the ORAC potential of acai. This fruit also has high levels of magnetism & electrolytes, making it an excellent choice after a workout to restore balance to your cells. Optionally, throw in a little bit of Pürblack to make the restoration 10x more efficient.
There are thousands upon thousands of different kinds of fruit in the world, all with unique chemical structures & nutritional composition. Our ancestors ate a much wider variety of food than we do nowadays, and I find that fact paramount to observe. This reality is also part of the reason that supplementation with Pürblack (the best shilajit money can buy) is virtually essential to maintaining health in industrialized nations.
There may just be two or three minerals your body desperately needs but cannot find due to our compromised food supply. Try taking Pürblack shilajit with some exotic fruits and see if your body doesn’t thank you!
