April 06, 2015 2 min read

It’s a new year and a new crop of superfoods have emerged. What is a superfoods?

Superfood: A nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being.

So many of us are deficient in vitamins or minerals that we desperately need and superfoods are a great way to get everything our body needs. Superfoods are packed with antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins and minerals and by eating more superfoods you are less like to get sick.

Some common superfoods include blueberries, broccoli, kale, salmon, oats, chia seeds and many more. 2015 has brought along a new crop of superfoods and these new superfoods are what you should be eating in 2015. Although some of these foods have been around for thousands of years it has taken our society this long to figure out how beneficial they truly are.

Hot new Superfoods:

1. Dandelion Greens

Not just a weed any more, dandelion greens are the hot new green to use in salads due to being excellent sources of vitamins A, B, C and K. They also help detox your liver and contain fiber, calcium, magnesium and iron. They are a little bitter so you have to get used to the taste of these greens.

2. Ancient Grains (kaniwa (baby quinoa), teff and amarantha)

Move aside quinoa because some new superfood grains have come to town. These grains are an excellent source of amino acids and pack more protein than quinoa. These grains are also vegan and gluten-free so even if you have those dietary restrictions you can still enjoy these grains.

3. Sauerkraut and other fermented foods

Fermented foods aid in digestion and provide good bacteria to your stomach. Fermented foods also promote a healthy immune system because they are natural probiotics. Sauerkraut is also a good source of vitamin C.

4. Cruciferous vegetables (cauliflower, brussel sprouts)

Kale’s heyday could be coming to an end because research shows cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamin C and helps the body detox high levels of estrogen using phytochemicals. Brussel sprouts on the other hand have many anti-cancer compounds and get rid of carcinogens.

5. Coconut Flour

Everything that comes from the coconut has turned out to be beneficial for our bodies. Now you can add yet another coconut item to that list with coconut flour. Coconut flour has the highest levels of protein and fiber compared to any other flour. It is also gluten-free and a great alternative to use in baking.

Now that you have been informed about the best new superfoods you have no excuse to become the healthiest version of yourself.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
