Superfoods, a term that has become fashionable, is a product of marketing, it highlights foods rich in nutrition with beneficial properties for health.
Our collaborator Healthing, , speak to 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 empty product offerings of 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 foods that we should not overlook.
Incorporate a diet rich in superfoods improves health. The Mayo Clinic specifies that they must meet three requirements:
- To be rich in fiber
- Have minerals, Vitamins, phytonutrientsand Antioxidants
- To be low in caloric load.
Thus, we get well nourished, without loading sugars and ultra-elaborated products that only get vitiated and cause chronic diseases.
Food that satisfies but does not nourish you, causes fatigue, lack of vitality, and immediately you feel hungry again. It is a vicious cycle that can be broken with healthy eating.
We remember what Hippocrates already told us, "that food is your medicine"
