We are forever being told what to eat and what not to eat; how many antioxidants are in this vegetable and why we need to be finicky with what we are putting inside our body; your body is the only thing you truly own and you should take pride of what is going inside! Superfoods are getting more recognition and becoming more involved in our lifestyle and diets; heck, what don’t we use coconut oil for now?! superfoodBlueberries and spinach are considered as superfoods (or for some, “functional foods”) because they hold health benefits that are more favourable than others as they hold anti-inflammatory, antioxidant or memory boosting properties. Here at StressNoMore, we are introducing Blessed Herbs’ new and improved Blessed Herbs The Organic Superfood; a  supplement powder that has the equivalent of 32 different superfoods including fruits, vegetables, grains and mushrooms in one single sachet. Yeah – you read that correctly, ONE single sachet. But Blessed Herbs haven’t stopped there; this sachet contains only superfoods – why? Because it can be incredibly difficult to try and incorporate all of the superfoods you need in a daily nutritious diet; you may have left your super-duper superfood pack up lunch in the fridge so you’ve resorted to getting a pasty from Greggs! Blessed Herbs’ very own Dr. Sullivan has perfected the recipe so that each sachet contains the nutrients, vitamins, proteins, antioxidants, all 22 amino acids and beta glucans your body needs but can’t quite absorb.

The Top 4 Blessed Herbs Superfoods

Below are just a few of the 32 superfood supplements you will find in your sachet and why they are marvellous for your body:


we all know that blueberries are fab antioxidants; that’s what gives them their beautiful blue colour. They are filled with a great source of Vitamin C and K, fibre, manganese and many more antioxidants. They are incredibly low in calories and high in nutrients; studies have shown that when blueberry extract given to cells and animal it decreases free radical damage that can cause cancer.


The ruby red jewel like fruit and the central theme of many ancient myths; the fruit is an exceptionally good source in fibre and contains vitamins A, C and E, iron and many other antioxidants. Studies have shown that drinking pomegranate juice on a daily basis can reduce cholesterol damage, improve blood flow and even slow down the progress of recurring prostate cancer. Jewel precious indeed! newsletter


A seaweed that is rich in potassium, minerals, calcium, magnesium, iodine and ion. Kelp although feels strange on your toes when you’re in the sea is magnificent in regulating your metabolism and promotes healthy skin and hair – how fab! It even aids in functioning the thyroid gland too!

Shiitake Mushrooms

Okay, you may not be a fan of mushrooms and you pick at them in your meals, but mushrooms as a whole are unbelievably great in providing a natural source of beta-glucans. Beta-what-now? Beta-glucans help combat against disease, infection and have a crucial role in keeping your immune system regular. However, our bodies can’t produce beta-glucans so what better way can you get a natural source of beta-glucans than plucking them straight from the earth! Inside shiitake mushrooms is a beta-glucan called Lentinan, which is said to reduce tumour activity and helps reduce the side effects that are given from cancer treatments. You’ll be scoffing mushrooms, now!
