The Top 10 Everyday Superfoods

While “superfoods” may be a marketing buzzword, we shouldn’t ignore the important health benefits of these highly nutritious, yet unsung heroes of the food world.

 

Forget the hype of exotic Amazonian berries, which have one zillion times the antioxidants of other foods you’ve eaten in your life, but only come in powdered form at $100 a jar. Real super-healthy superfoods are grown locally and are available at your local fruit and vegetable stand, or supermarket.

 

 

Almonds: A great source of protein, fibre, B vitamins, vitamin E and cholesterol-lowering fats and phytosterols.

 

Beans: Recommended by the American Diabetes Association, beans provide lots of protein without saturated fat. They are also a good source of fibre, magnesium and potassium.

 

Beetroot: Have an energy boosting impact.


Blueberries: High in antioxidants, studies have linked blueberries to increased cardiovascular health and improved memory.

 

Broccoli: Rich in iron and a good source of protein, calcium, folate and vitamins C and A, broccoli has been linked to a reduction in cholesterol and triglycerides (Christiansen et al. 2010).

 

 

Dark leafy green vegetables: Kale, spinach and Swiss chard are all high in protein, low-calorie and nutrient dense.


Garlic: A Cochrane Library study showed garlic’s efficacy in terms of lowering blood pressure. Evidence suggests that garlic may be effective in fighting against certain cancers and reducing cholesterol.

 

Oily fish: Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for cardiovascular health in that they keep blood pressure low and improve blood lipids.


Soya beans: Protein rich and the only food source of isoflavones, soya beans are proven to reduce chances of osteoporosis and heart disease (University of California San Francisco Medical Center).

 

Tomatoes: High in antioxidants, iron, and vitamins A and C. A 2010 British Association of Dermatologists study showed tomato paste helps protect against ultraviolet radiation.
