Today, you can’t turn on the TV without tons of commercials pushing pills, powders, and potions for everything from cancer to weight loss.  You don’t have to invest hundreds of dollars in so-called “miracle cures” to get your body what it needs like the commercials imply.  Here is where super foods, the world’s healthiest foods, save the day!

What are Super Foods?

These foods have been around for 100’s of years.  Super foods do what those “miracle” products can’t – and they do it naturally.  How did your ancestors manage to live long, healthy lives without all the powders and potions?  It wasn’t just because they stayed fit by working from sunup to sundown.  Eating healthy foods had a lot to do with it.

Unlike the much hyped powders, pills, and potions said to cure what ails you, super foods aren’t “super” because they are filled with additives, preservatives, and other proprietary substances that the food manufacturers keep secret.  These foods are “super” because of just how unadulterated they really are.

Super foods, as they have been labeled, are actually foods that are nutrient dense, more nutrients per calorie than most other foods, but contain no additives or preservatives.  They have also been shown to contain vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that prevent disease: from cancer to heart disease to arthritis, and many more.  Eaten by themselves or in combination with other foods, they provide nutrients needed by the body in high enough quantities to make a difference in your health and your life in general.

You may ask: Why do we need pills when we have super foods?  Medicine has its place, but to maintain overall health, lower risk of certain diseases, and to age well, you’ll need to create a healthy body. Daily care and eating healthy foods is where we begin our lifetime of maintenance on our most precious asset – our body.

Benefits of Super Foods

So, what is it about certain foods that make them better than others and worthy of the title “Super Foods?” Here are some of the most notable benefits:

  • Weight loss – We all need to maintain a healthy weight.  Did you know that each one pound of weight contributes four pounds of pressure to your knees?  You can imagine what just twenty pounds of excess weight would do to your knees over time.  A healthy weight benefits not only your bones and joints, but your organs, as well.
  • Slows aging process – You may not be able to turn back the clock significantly when you eat super foods, but you’ll feel better trying.  Aging is a combination of time and environment.  Environment doesn’t occur just outside the skin; it also refers to the condition you provide inside your body.  A healthy internal environment will help you look and feel younger.
  • Disease free – Some diseases come with age and exposure to external toxins, while other diseases are a result of our choices.  Wouldn’t you like to lessen your chances of getting cancer, diabetes, or heart disease?  What if you could do so by changing what you eat?

These are just several of the benefits of eating super foods.  It is a fact that the food you eat can influence your mental and physical health.  If you could live healthier by eating better and smarter, wouldn’t you?  Put Super Foods to work for you!

To your good health,

    1. Hi Misty,
      There are numerous “superfoods” and it depends on the source too. I will be posting several articles over the next several weeks highlighting some of them. Blueberries and flax seeds are just two that I include regularly when making a smoothie. Stay tuned!
