6 Super Foods You Should Add To Your Diet NOW

April 22, 2015 2 min read

It seems the term "superfood" gets tossed around a lot these days but here is the low down on 6 foods that are truly "super." So on your next trip to the supermarket, add these to you basket and start feeling the benefits!

Tart Cherries

sour-cherries Tart or sour cherries contain high levels of antioxidants. They are anti-inflammatory, help boost sleep and can improve sports recovery. Reports have suggested that eating tart cherries can reduce some post work out side effects like muscle aches, inflammation and weakness.

Avocado

AvocadoPhoto Avocados are a great source of mono-saturated fats which are known to lower bad cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke. A recent study has suggested that combining a moderate-fat diet with one avocado a day could actually lower your levels of bad cholesterol by more than a low-fat, or moderate-fat diet without avocados.

Cranberries

cranberries Not just good for urinary tract infections, studies have suggested cranberries can improve heart health, prevent some cancers, boost oral health and help reduce infection. They contain polyphenols which have been found to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. But be careful with your cranberry juice or cranberry drink intake. They tend to be loaded in sugar.

Blueberries

Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds provide protein, fiber, manganese, magnesium, and phosphorous as well as being a source of zinc which is important for immunity, cell growth and division, as well as sleep, mood, and eye and skin health. Just a handful makes a great nutrient packed snack. Add them to your oatmeal in the morning for a boost.

Chia Seeds

If you are looking for an easy way to add these to your diet, sprinkle the seeds onto porridge that has been mixed with rice milk (or almond or soy milk if you prefer) and you have a wonderful breakfast. How do you work these foods into your diet? Share your tips with us!

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 with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
