Health benefits of superfoods

Do you want to feel more vibrant, have more energy and live longer? There is no magic diet pill or fitness program that can get you there unless you start changing your lifestyle habits including diet and exercise. Healthy lifestyle choices are critical when it comes to longevity and optimum health.

That’s why eating a diet high in organic fruits and vegetables can be very beneficial to your health and wellbeing. In fact, majority of scientific researches and studies suggest that most chronic diseases are preventable when you live a healthy lifestyle.

However, our busy lifestyle might not give us with enough time to achieve the nutritional requirement that our bodies need on a daily basis. Sometimes we even have the best intension in our heart to prepare a healthy and nutritious meal for ourselves and our families, but lack of free time for shopping or preparing a healthy meal could be standing in our way.

So the question is how we could achieve all the nutritional requirements when junk or convenient foods have become so popular?

A recent study by CDC shows that American women are more obese than ever before and the rate of childhood obesity is increasing drastically. It’s obvious that our genes or DNA haven’t changed that much in the last two or three decades, but our diet and lifestyle habits have changed drastically. 

Fast and junk foods like hamburgers, donuts, pizzas, sodas, potato chips or French fries have found their way into our diet and the big food industry spends billions of dollars on TV ads promoting junk foods to teenagers and our children; especially our kids who need a balanced nutritional diet in those crucial growing years.

We all have to become aware that our bodies aren’t simply designed to deal with fake food:

We can all start from basics of nutrition and re-educate ourselves and our children to choose healthier foods and lifestyle habits.  Adding more fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, legumes, and lean protein like wild salmon and consuming less and less processed/junk foods like fried foods or sugary drinks could be a huge step towards a healthy life.

As they say, ‘a journey of thousands miles start with the first step’. Once you have eliminated fake and junk foods from your diet, you can take back the control of your health and wellbeing.

You should also try to add more raw organic foods that have live enzymes, powerful antioxidants and valuable micronutrients to your daily diet and enrich your diet even more by adding superfoods high in antioxidants and nutrients.

Superfoods are packed with nutrients and high levels of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals:

Foods with plenty of trace minerals, vitamins, micronutrients and valuable omega-3 fatty acids known as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) should be a daily part of the diet of pregnant mother and growing children.

Superfoods like broccoli, kale, celery, goji berries, blueberries, cinnamon, cacao, seaweeds, avocado, flaxseed, maca roots, spirulina, chlorella, and pineapple are packed with high level of antioxidants and nutrients essential to your health and wellbeing.
