In a previous article, we talked about our BeNu Super Greens and reminisced on the days when eating your vegetables felt more like a chore than anything else.
Did you ever feel that way about fruit? Were you ever told to sit down and finish your fruit?
I am going to take a wild guess here and say, probably not…..fruits are often sweet, have a variety of flavors and are even found in many delicious desserts.
(You don’t see too many vegetables in desserts) 😉
So, although eating fruits may not be much of a challenge, compared to its other half…..vegetables. It is still important to get the right fruits and understand the nutrients that the Reds provide, that the Greens may not.
In this article, I will answer the questions: what are BeNu Super Reds, why are they important, and what are the key ingredients to a good quality, Reds supplement.
WHAT ARE SUPER REDS?
Super Reds are a convenient, easy-to-use powder that was formulated from our own special selection of potent Phytonutrient superfoods, such as: wild blueberry, mangosteen, and wild strawberry - which are known for their powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
But with that being said, you are probably still wondering….
Why should I use BeNu Super Reds?
WHY ARE SUPER REDS IMPORTANT?
Well, let’s go back to that word Phytonutrients.
Phytonutrients are a natural chemical compound found in plants and especially in fruits.
They play a big part into why a food has an odor, flavor and/or bright colors.
They also contain Antioxidants, which protect your cells from free radicals and help fight off disease.
We naturally have some free radicals in our body, but environmental factors such as: pollution, smoking, radiation, alcohol and a diet high in sugars and unhealthy fats - can cause those free radicals to quickly accumulate.
When your body has too many free radicals and does not have enough antioxidants to even the playing field, this causes your body to go into a state known as oxidative stress.
When this occurs, the free radicals will start damaging your fatty tissues, DNA, and proteins.
This can trigger multiple diseases, like:
- Heart Disease
- Chronic Inflammation
- High Blood Pressure
Not only can these diseases occur, but by not creating a better balance between the two…...you may notice a hindrance in your workouts and your cognitive thinking.
Let’s go back to the very beginning where we talked about the fact that eating fruit isn’t too hard of a task to do, but when you look back at your day, how much fruit do you really eat?…..do you get the 4 or 5 different servings of fruits you need?
The most common answer here is: NO.
Most people actually limit their fruit intake, due to not wanting all the sugars and carbs…...especially if they are doing a low-carb or keto style diet.
Not to mention, buying fruit can get very expensive and we tend to stick with fruits we know and like. Such as: strawberries, apples, bananas……
However, the BeNu Super Reds contain those expensive fruits that you can rarely find, which can provide other benefits that basic fruits may not.
These fruits include: Mangosteen, Jaboticaba, Amla, and Maqui Berry
What do you know about Maqui Berry or Mangosteen? When was the last time you casually picked them up at the grocery store?
Never? That’s no surprise, most stores do not carry these fruits due to their rarity and expense.
So why are these fruits key to a good Reds Supplement? Keep reading to find out.
WHAT INGREDIENTS DO WE USE?
Just like our BeNu Super Greens are made with all the BEST ingredients, we did the same with our Reds!
