• Helps protect the skin
• Greater sense of health and wellness
• Helps reduce oxidative stress
*These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevents any disease.
Much like Fucoidan, the superfoods listed here have a laundry list of health-promoting benefits, and with their mild flavors, they’ll blend seamlessly into your favorite LIMU LEAN Dutch Chocolate or Creamy Vanilla Protein Shake recipes to help your LEAN shake work even harder.
Sneak one or more of these superfoods into the shake of your choice to make your Fucoidan-rich concoction that much healthier:
1. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has been shown to improve digestion and help fight disease and infection. If you’re shocked by the nutrition label, don’t let the fat content fool you— just like the LIMU LEAN formula, coconut oil is actually proven to help you lose weight and cut belly fat. It also promotes improved energy and endurance, making it an excellent superfood to add to your fitness regimen. Be sure to buy extra virgin coconut oil for the most health benefits, and avoid any refined or processed products, as many of the health-enhancing factors have been depleted through bleaching or over-heating.
Amount to add: 1-2 tablespoons
This tiny seed is packed with big benefits. In addition to the system-regulating, hunger-fighting effects of soluble and insoluble fiber, flaxseed contains plant-based omega-3s: the essential fatty acids your body needs to function. You could eat sardines, anchovies or tuna to get your dose of healthy omega-3s—or you could toss some flaxseeds into your LIMU LEAN shake and call it a day.
Amount to add: 1-2 tablespoons whole or ground flaxseeds (you can also use flaxseed oil)
3. Aloe Vera
A powerful anti-inflammatory and detox agent, aloe vera isn’t just for sunburns anymore. Loaded with vitamins A, B1, B2, B5, B12, C, E, Folic Acid and niacin, the internal use of the aloe vera plant yields an incredible array of benefits, including the elimination of toxins, improved digestion and reversal of skin damage. You can buy concentrated aloe vera gel at your local health food store and you can find fresh aloe vera stalks at many supermarkets.
Amount to add: ¼ cup fresh, filleted and diced aloe vera or 1-2 tablespoons concentrated aloe vera gel
This root is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal—basically, it’s anti anything bad. Turmeric helps in treating digestion, relieving arthritis and it contributes to heart health in a number of ways. If you’re looking to lose weight, turmeric is a surefire ally, helping to burn excessive fat by detoxifying the liver and naturally speeding up the metabolism. You may already have ground turmeric in your spice rack, but you can find it at any grocery store if you don’t. For enhanced cellular benefits, be on the lookout for raw turmeric root in the produce section.
Amount to add: 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric or 1/2-inch fresh turmeric root
5. Bee Pollen
Containing almost all the nutrients your body requires, bee pollen is considered by many to be one of nature’s most perfect foods. Said to help you lose weight, boost athletic performance, alleviate allergies and kick asthma—this complete superfood is well-worth adding to your diet. A small amount of bee pollen in your LIMU LEAN shakes can boost your energy level and help accelerate your burn rate of fats and calories.
Amount to add: 1 tablespoon
