One of the simplest ways to upgrade your diet is by adding superfoods. Superfoods are the most nutrient dense foods in the world. They are real, unprocessed, plant based foods that are packed with a wide array of health promoting compounds, including remarkable levels of vitamins and minerals, inflammation fighting fats, easy to digest proteins, and heart healthy fiber. Many plant based superfoods are also rich in a variety of phytochemicals (active compounds found only in plant foods) and cell protecting antioxidants, which help combat the cell-damaging effects of free radicals.
From familiar foods like blueberries and kale to lesser-known ones like acai and maca, these superstars (and the combination of beneficial compounds in them) may help reduce inflammation, slow aging, prevent or treat chronic disease, increase energy, boost mood, reduce stress, cleanse the body by supporting its natural detoxification pathways, and so much more. super foods are not magic bullets, but they are pretty magical.
