These Super foods are Actually Needed by Our Body
Do you ever heard about 'super food'? Although there’s no set criteria as to what defines a super food, these are foods that are jam-packed with nutrients and can help provide your body with the vitamins and minerals you need to thrive, survive and feel great. Here some of super food that turns out our snacks or food every day.
Avocado is a fruit from the Lauraceae family of plants. The avocado is rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, folate, vitamin C and vitamin K. Not only that, but it manages to pack in more potassium than a banana and is super satisfying, making it one of the best fruits for weight loss. There are limitless ways to enjoy this creamy fruit; try spreading it over toast, adding it to a salad or even just sprinkling a bit of salt on a few slices and chowing down.
Almonds are one of the most nutrient-rich nuts available. They are among the best non-dairy sources of calcium, providing more milligrams of calcium per serving than any other nut, and are also high in vitamin E and protein. You can enjoy these nuts raw as a tasty snack or try roasting them up for a warm treat on a cold day. Just remember that almonds are high in calories, so be sure to keep your portion size in check — it is definitely possible to have too much of a good thing.
Fiber is good and apples are a great low-calorie source. (A medium-sized apple weighs in at under 100 calories.) Plus, upping apple intake has been associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, diabetes, and asthma.
Oats are a natural super food because they are 100% whole grain, and contain vitamins and minerals. Oats contain fibre, and are unique in that they are one of the richest sources of rich beta-glucan, a soluble fibre, that can help to lower cholesterol re-absorption. They are also low in sodium (salt) and provide protein and carbohydrate for energy.
Honey has been used as a natural remedy to fight ulcers, burns, wounds and gastric disturbances, but only lately scientific research is conducted to find out how honey really does what it does, and if there is any evidence behind some common beliefs. Honey can boost the immune system, contains many antioxidants, ease stress, and improve sleep.
