Superfoods have plenty of benefits for your health. Discover the reasons why you should include them in your diet.
There’s no doubt that superfoods are great for our health. Supergreens, functional mushrooms, berries… Each one of them has specific benefits and all are good supplements. But do you actually know them? Here you will discover 7 benefits that will make you include the superfoods right away in your next meal.
1. Superfoods will boost your immune system
If you don’t want to get sick, you have to strengthen your immune system. And the best way to keep your immune system strong is to regularly consume superfoods that boost it. For example, citrus fruits (lemons, oranges, clementines, limes), broccoli, almonds and seeds (sunflower, chia, pumpkin), are rich in vitamins A, C and E. These are essential in boosting the immune system and maintaining it. Actually, our supergreen gummies can provide you with the vitamins you need to boost your body.
2. They contribute to losing weight
You don’t have to eat less to lose weight. There are many healthy foods that can fill you up and boost your energy. Superfoods such as spinach, watermelon, tomatoes, bell peppers, sweet potatoes, and salmon are rich in nutrients that include protein, potassium, vitamin C and omega-3s which can help reduce appetite and hunger levels.[¹]
3. They will regulate your blood sugar levels
A nutritional plan is essential for everyone’s blood sugar health. Eating foods with a low glycemic index (GI) can help you keep a stable blood sugar level. Many superfoods such as greek yogurt, tomatoes, seeds, turmeric, salmon, and mixed nuts, among others, are rich in nutrients and low on the GI index, too.
4. They lower bad (LDL) cholesterol
Diet is everything if you want to make changes in your cholesterol levels. In fact, an unhealthy diet can significantly raise the levels of bad cholesterol (LDL: low-density lipoprotein). On the other hand, a healthy diet can lower levels of LDL cholesterol in your body while also boosting HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol levels, as known as “good cholesterol”. Superfoods like spinach, avocados, beans, celery, and fish, are rich sources of monounsaturated fats and fiber, two nutrients that can lower bad LDL cholesterol.[²]
5. Superfoods can lower blood pressure
According to the World Health Organization [³], approximately 1.13 billion people worldwide suffer from hypertension, which can increase the risk of heart or brain diseases. However, you can prevent it through a balanced diet, including foods rich in potassium, magnesium, and fiber. Berries, oats, watermelon, garlic, pistachios and pomegranate are some superfoods that can help lower blood pressure.
6. Contribute to strengthening bones and muscles
Did you know that your bones and muscles are strengthened when you add to your diet superfoods that include vitamin k, magnesium, and calcium?
