Incorporating a diet rich in superfoods improves health

Superfoods, a term that has become fashionable, is a product of marketing, highlighting foods rich in nutrition with beneficial properties for health.

Our collaborator Healthing, , tells us in this article about them.

What are super foods?

It has long indigenous peoples have used them to heal body and mind. Now, in our globalized society, in a world full of offers of empty products with nutritional content, we need to cleanse our body of toxins and look back at the foods that provide vitamins and minerals naturally.

It is a marketing term, but it puts in front the virtues of food that we should not overlook.

Incorporate a diet rich in superfoods improves health. The Mayo Clinic specifies that they must meet three requirements:

  • Cheese rich in fiber
  • Have minerals, Vitamins, phytonutrientsand Antioxidants
  • Cheese low in caloric load.

Thus, we manage to be well nourished, without loading ourselves with sugars and ultra-elaborated products that only manage to vitiate us and cause chronic diseases.

Food that satisfies but does not nourish you produces fatigue, lack of vitality, and you immediately feel hungry again. It is a vicious circle that can be cut with healthy eating.

We remember what Hippocrates already told us, "that food is your medicine"
