5 Benefits I’ve Learned About Superfoods

If you have never heard the term superfoods, it’s ok, you’re not alone. Superfoods are nutritionally dense foods that are super good for you especially for those of us over the age of 40. Superfoods are mostly plant-based that includes fruits and vegetables as well as nuts, seeds, beans, and whole grains just to name a few.

Superfoods on their own won’t make you healthy, but combining them together in a well-balanced eating plan will provide you with plenty of health benefits. Eating superfoods will help with health and wellness and fight against diseases. Superfoods can be consumed in their natural form as well as liquid, smoothies, powder, and even tablets.

Why Superfoods Are So Super

In case you were wondering, superfoods are not grown on the planet Krypton and flown here to Earth in a small spaceship (but how cool would that be?). However, after being on a steady healthy diet of superfoods you will feel,

Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! And able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!

Superfoods are well researched and documented foods that are made up of very potent ingredients and a high concentration of vitamins and minerals. In short, superfoods are God’s gift of nutrients and medicine for our bodies.  

5 Benefits of Superfoods

Healing Powers

Research suggests that superfoods can help reduce the risk and in some cases, turn back the clock on certain health problems and diseases. Superfoods have the power to reduce high blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and decrease the chance of heart disease as well as the fight against diabetes, and even some cancers. According to an article in the Journal of the American Heart Association, research showed that a plant-based diet (superfoods) can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease mortality by 19%

Food ideas: Mustard greens, salmon, brussels sprouts, nuts, and seeds.

Immune System Enhancing Powers

It’s kind of hard to feel super and protect your metropolis when you are in bed with the sniffles. Superfoods are packed with antioxidants that help power up your immune system and help you fight against the common cold, flu, and other infections that attack the immune system.

Food ideas: red peppers, citrus fruits, papaya, broccoli.

Promotion

Energy Boosting Powers

Unlike processed foods, superfoods help keep your energy level up. Superfoods aren’t necessarily a shot in the arm with adrenalin, but you will find that you are no longer sluggish throughout the day and that your physical endurance and mental fortitude will increase. Superfoods have also proven to help with weight loss which increases stamina. When you focus on increasing your intake of nutritional foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains you may feel that you can leap tall buildings in a single bound – but don’t try it.

Food ideas: kale, spinach, bananas, oranges, blueberries, fatty fishes.

Improved Brain Functioning Powers

While superfoods may not give us genius-level intelligence or eidetic memory, research does suggest that certain dietary plans such as the Mediterranean diet (a plant-based diet) can reduce the risk and early onset of Alzheimer’s, dementia, and cognitive decline.  

Food ideas: salmon, avocado, and omega 3 fatty acids.

Reducing the Effects of Aging Powers

As we age, we not only want to feel healthy, but we want to look healthy. Eating fewer process foods and more superfoods will help provide you with healthy-looking skin and hair during the aging process.

Food ideas: Papaya, carrots, blueberries, sweet potatoes.

Putting Superfoods in Action

I have never been a person who liked fruits and vegetables. But once I started my journey to better health and a better lifestyle, I made Superfoods the focus of my daily diet. Now, I get excited about finding, cooking, and eating new recipes that center around superfoods.

If you want to learn more about eating healthy read my e-book, The DASH Diet: How The DASH Diet Solved My High Blood Pressure. Here you will learn all about the DASH diet and how I lowered my high blood pressure and high cholesterol by eating Superfoods.

Conclusion

Eating superfoods will not make you faster than a speeding bullet, or more powerful than a locomotive, and it will certainly not enable you to leap tall buildings in a single bound: but what you will be able to do is live a much healthier life that will make you feel like an impenetrable man of steel.
