We at Staterra believe in a whole body approach to your fitness goals. This means that the food you’re consuming, alongside the supplements we’ve created for you, are equally as important as the supplements themselves.
Here are a few foods we love and why we think you should love them too:
ACAI BERRIES: These berries are exceptionally rich in antioxidants and contain essential fatty acids and amino acids. Because they are also easy to digest, acai are a high net-gain food that can speed recovery after exercise.
AGAVE NECTAR: Agave nectar is easily digested, but because of its high fructose content, it has a slower release of complex carbohydrates.
BUCKWHEAT: not actually a wheat – buckwheat is a seed containing eight essential amino acids, including quite high amounts of tryptophan and protein.
CHLORELLA: This green algae is a true super-food, containing 65 percent protein, essential fatty acids, and a plethora of vitamins, mineral, and enzymes.
COCONUT OIL: It is exceptionally easy to digest and provides quick and sustained energy that burns efficiently.
COCONUT WATER: It contains high levels of simple carbohydrates, making it an ideal fluid to boost muscle glycogen without causing the stomach to become bogged down with digestive duties.
GREENS: Green foods are an excellent way to help alkalize the body, which reduces inflammation and helps maintain bone health.
GREEN TEA: Green tea is not just an antioxidant powerhouse, loaded with beneficial polyphenols, it has also been proven to aid digestion and gives a good kick of caffeine – making it a great pre-workout addition.
HEMP: Hemp seeds come straight from the plant and are rich in omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. When pressed, the seed becomes hemp powder and oil. The powder, sometimes referred to as flour, is then milled finer to remove some of the starch. The result is hemp protein.
MACA: A root belonging to the radish family, maca curtails the effects of stress by aiding the regeneration of the adrenal glands. It is likewise known for increasing stamina, performance, and sexual functioning.
