Best Superfood Powder Reviews: What Are They?
Super foods are high quality food ingredients that have been scientifically proven to improve health and reduce risk factors for disease. There are many different types of super foods, but they all share certain characteristics such as having anti-inflammatory properties, enhancing immunity and boosting energy levels.
The term “super” comes from the fact that these foods contain several nutrients, vitamins and minerals which are not found naturally in our diet. These super foods provide benefits to human health when consumed regularly over time. Some of them include:
Vitamin C – helps fight off free radicals and prevent cell damage. Vitamin E – reduces inflammation and improves immune system function. Selenium – protects against cancer and heart disease. Beta Carotene – provides antioxidant protection.
Lutein & Zeaxanthin – protect eyesight and promote healthy skin tone. Folate – prevents birth defects and promotes brain development.
Some of the most popular super foods are those listed above, however there are other super foods out there too! Some lesser known super foods that are rich in nutrients and should be considered as part of a healthy diet include:
Chia Seeds – are a complete protein and a good source of fiber. They also contain antioxidants, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. In addition to being nutritious, chia seeds can be added to many recipes or eaten on their own for a quick and easy super food snack.
