It may sound like a lot, but eating 5 servings of superfoods per day is totally achievable. In fact, we recommend it! This is why...
You’ve heard the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” but here’s something you may not know: the same expression applies to superfoods!
While it’s true that no one food is a medical cure-all, multiple scientific studies have shown that superfoods can be beneficial to your health – especially when consumed regularly.
Here at Your Super, we recommend getting at least 5 servings of superfoods per day. Why 5? We’re so glad you asked!
No matter what your health goals are, consuming superfoods regularly is an easy way to feel your best inside and out.
Consuming superfoods at least 5 times per day allows your body to fully absorb the nutrients, so you get the most out of each ingredient. Think of them this way: one glass of water might quench your thirst - but 8 glasses of water can soothe joints, improve kidney function, and clear your skin.
Basically, the more you eat, the better you’ll feel!
Let’s say you had toast for breakfast, soup for lunch, and pasta for dinner. Sounds like a pretty delicious day, right? There’s just one thing missing...PLANTS! Without plants you may be missing essential vitamins and minerals in your diet.
Superfoods are a convenient way to add plants to every meal. You don’t have to chop numerous veggies or juice celery stalks to feel healthy. Just add a serving of superfoods to your favorite foods and drinks for a boost of essential nutrients. So, how much is in a serving? For most of our mixes, 1 tsp = 1 serving. Although, our protein powders call for 2 tbsp per serving.

Did you know? Around 92% of the U.S. population is suffering from at least one mineral or vitamin deficiency. (Yes, omnivores too!) This means your likelihood of being deficient in essential nutrients is pretty high.
But fear not! Consuming at least 5 servings of superfoods per day can help make up for deficiencies in your diet. Superfoods are nutritional powerhouses, meaning they’re jam-packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, natural enzymes, healthy fats, and more. Think of them as the superheroes of the plant world. But instead of fighting crime, superfoods fuel your body with the nutrients it needs to thrive. (HI-YA! Take that deficiencies!)

Is the ‘5 per day’ recommendation for a single mix or multiple mixes?
You can use your favorite single mix or mix and match multiple mixes to reach 5 servings a day— the choice is yours! As a reminder, 1 tsp = 1 serving, except for our protein mixes which call for 2 tbsp per serving.
Is ‘5 per day’ the minimum or can you consume more?
We think 5 servings each day is the perfect amount, but feel free to adjust to your needs. Some customers like to use between 7-10 Your Super mixes in one day, just remember that your body can only consume so much at a time so the excess will come out as waste.
When will I notice a difference in my health?
81% of our customers said they felt a difference within 2 weeks! Results vary but if you are consistent you may start to feel the results in 3-5 days.
