Top Superfoods and Remedies

Superfoods are called “super” for very good reasons: the foods are rich in nutrients and especially beneficial for our health and wellbeing. Sometimes referred to as “nutrient powerhouses,” you can expect superfoods to have a wide array of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals contained in them. The long and short of it is, adding more of these to your daily lifestyle reap huge healthy returns.

Some of the top recognized superfoods—along with their benefits—include:

Mushrooms: contain zinc, fiber, selenium, potassium, and phytochemicals
Algae: very high in vegetable protein and easily-absorbed nutrients
Kale: high in fiber, vitamins A & C, calcium and rich in antioxidants
Turmeric: enhances mood; contains curcumin, which may increase seratonin
Coconut Oil: contains triglycerides to help boost metabolism
Apples: fiber and polyphenols help decrease “bad” cholesterol
Chia seeds: a single ounce = nearly 5 grams of protein; great source of fiber
Ginger: relieves nausea, aids in digestion
Fennel: rich in vitamin C and potassium, which fights high blood pressure
Green Tea: polyphenols increase metabolism; regulates glucose levels
Blueberries: anti-aging effects; low in calories and high in fiber
