Increase Your Quality of Life Through the Simple Power of Food
All around us are products claiming to provide an increased quality of life. However, most are just bandaids on any sort of overall problems we may have with our health. Kroma was founded on the idea that quality food and ingredients are our most powerful forms of medicine and body cleanse, and the best way to prevent health problems in the future is to invest your energy into a healthy diet today.

Hippocrates once said, "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” However, when health complications arise, many turn toward outward sources instead of examining what they already put in their bodies. Here are just some of the ways that your diet affects your quality of life.
The physical benefits of a healthy diet are both short-term and long-term.
After choosing to eat a healthy diet, you’ll find you have more energy, are less groggy, and can either lose weight or maintain your current healthy weight.
In the long term, a healthy diet strengthens your bones, keeps your eyes, teeth, and skin healthy and glowing, and lowers your risk of many potentially fatal diseases, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancers.
Age and health are also connected. Making healthy dietary choices has been shown to help you live longer in general.
Our physical health isn’t the only thing that suffers from a poor diet, our mental health is also directly related to what we choose to put in our bodies. In fact, a diet full of processed foods can change the physiology of our brains, making us continue to crave unhealthy foods. The sugars and flours you find in highly processed foods also produce inflammation in your brain, which can contribute to mental health disorders, including anxiety and depression.
A poor diet also has less direct consequences on your body, as less energy to your physical body leaves you fatigued and irritated, it can even further lead to increased stress and depression.
Ultimately, a healthy diet has both balance and quality in its ingredients. Here are some of the ways you can ensure your food choices are benefiting your body.
Balance is an essential part of a healthy diet. Even if you eat healthy foods, purposeful variety is needed. Vegetables are healthy and good for you, but strictly eating vegetables will leave your body craving other sources of nutrients from foods like fruit or nuts and seeds. Nutrition can only come from other sources, and vice versa.
Maintaining a balanced diet allows your digestive system to flow optimally and ensures you aren’t deficient in any nutrients that could cause an imbalance in your body.
When eating, it’s important to make your calories count. Empty calories won’t fill you up and won’t give you all the vital nutrients and energy that you need to function properly. These high-quality foods include organic, minimally processed choices. Consuming superfoods, such as supergreens, is also a great way to make your calories count while still getting loads of nutrients.
Occasionally, your body needs to cleanse, detox, and reset to help boost your immunity and metabolism and to cleanse your body from the toxins we come into contact with each day in our natural environments.
A 5-Day Reset, Kroma’s cleanse detox program, is the perfect complement to your already healthy diet, as it fills you up, lets you indulge a bit, and still tastes great — all with the benefits of a healthy body cleanse. Getting rid of these toxins allows your body to refresh and rejuvenate, which helps improve your quality and longevity of life.
The benefits of a healthier diet aren’t just short-term; these simple choices will stick with you for the long run. Your health is an investment, and the good or poor choices you make today will determine how your body holds up even years from now. Your health will increase as you continue to make healthy dietary choices.
Kroma’s purpose is to help your body thrive through healthy, quality ingredients. Our 5-Day Reset is a delicious, practical, and easy cleanse for weight loss that can be adapted to your own palette and preferences. You can finally detox without the unappetizing all-liquid diet that still leaves you hungry. Reset regularly with your healthy diet and continue to increase your quality of life.
