Travelling can be very tiring. Mostly flying and especially the long haul flights can really mix up your body. The time difference and the dry air on the plane can really leave you feeling out of sorts. Your energy levels can drop, your skin might start breaking and your sleeping patterns get out of sync. All that creates excessive oxidative cellular stress to your body. Below we’ve listed a few reasons why it’s good to carry the berry powders with you on your travels and how they can boost your wellbeing while away, whereas before and after the trip as well.
1. Vitamin C
Our berry powders are high in vitamin C which is uplifting vitamin. It also helps to many other nutrients and vitamins to absorb. Vitamin C really boost the immunity which is important when travelling. Many of you’ve probably experienced the irritating flu once arriving to the destination. Vitamin C is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It’s involved in many body functions, including formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. So all of the things you need to pay a close attention to when putting your body through the stress of travelling.
Berry powders are one of the easiest ways to make sure you get enough fibre. Dietary fibre is important for our digestive health and regular bowel movements. As a matter of fact most of the people don’t get enough fibre through their diet. Getting enough fibre is especially important while travelling since sitting for long can really confuse your gut. For not experiencing constipation it’s crucial to pay attention to the fibre intake. Just one to two teaspoons of berry powder a day really noticeably increases the fibre intake and does good for the gut health.
Wild Arctic berries are very high in antioxidants. Three times compared to cultivated cousins as a matter of fact. As we covered at the top, travelling, especially long haul, really causes oxidative stress to our body. Oxidative stress can make us to put on weight, our skin to look grey etc. Therefore a diet rich of antioxidants is very important in every day life of course but especially when travelling. Foods with high antioxidants can repair all the damage the travelling might have caused. Antioxidant rich diet also lower the chance for infections which is important when you go to new places. They also improve the immunity.
When you go to new places it can be hard to find good, organic and nutritious foods. Especially if you’re travelling with the family, finding good stuff for the little ones can be a challenge. The berry powders easily fit to even carry on luggage, they don’t go off quickly, they are light to carry and can be added to many different foods once you arrive to your destination. We also have to single serve sachets so enjoying them even while you’re travelling is a good idea to make sure your body gets nourished when under a stress. On holidays it can be hard to stick to meal times, that’s why it’s good to carry the powders or the sachets with you. You can always pop into a local grocery store, get a natural yogurt and spin in a few teaspoons of berry powder for all the goodness mentioned above.
