Superfoods Phuket Thailand
Superfoods are available in Phuket Thailand and can help you to complement your dietary requirements in order to improve your health.
We have to be careful as the claims are sometimes larger than the actual usefulness.
(Claims are sometimes overdone, for instance, grapefruit can indeed impact the liver’s fat metabolizing process. BUT for any result, you’ll have to eat 40 grapefruits at a time for any result. (40 grapefruits contain more 1000 grams of sugar (5,000 calories). So YES “Grapefruit impacts your liver’s fat metabolizing” but NO it perhaps does not make sense to do so.)
But also regular high and delicious nutritious organic fresh vegetables can be considered superfoods. Click here for Pura’s selection of healthy organic vegetables.

This is nutrition-based care focused on improving health by optimizing physiological functioning. When experiencing multiple symptoms these are indications to how your body is not functioning the way it should be. Healthy food and Superfoods aid in this.
Like functional medicine it approaches the body from the perspective of treating the root cause of disease, it looks at the fundamental way food affects your body at the cellular level. Food is more than calories, millions of molecules in every piece of food that you eat have an effect!
“food is thy medicine and medicine should be your food!”
Eating healthy is essential for both preventing an illness and recovering from a disease. Specific nutrients can help your liver detoxification, give you sustained energy, help you sleep better, and support your general health.
But food can be your poison as well—if you make bad choices and continue to eat food that harms your body, one way would be to buy organic.
