Super foods: What's super about them?


Posted by Swati S.

There is a lot of buzz around super foods these days. If you cut through all the advertising gimmickry, super foods are just about including whole foods, like fruits and vegetable, in your diet. Here is a list of some all time favorite super foods and the things that makes them so special. 1. Yogurt: They have what is called probiotics, or live cultures of bacteria. This is good bacteria that turns milk into curd, and helps in digestion. Also, since it is a milk product, it is also a good source of calcium and proteins. 2. Spinach: It seems Popeye had it right all along. Spinach and other dark green leafy vegetables have anti-oxidants, along with minerals like Iron. The best part is that they are low in calories, so you can have all you want. 3. Dark Chocolate: Finally, a food that is good for the body and the taste buds. Dark chocolate contains flavonoids (a kind of anti-oxidant) that is good for the heart. 4. Kiwis: Great source of Vitamin C and potassium.

There's only a few true superfoods

Chlorella and other algaes are top of my list

Perhaps Goji berries, hempseeds and Echium oil would be in there too.
