When it comes to nutrition, sometimes it’s the small tweaks we make that can have a huge impact. You may have heard the term “Superfood” as of late, since it’s a little more trendy now to pay attention to what you eat and to use clean foods and beverages to fuel your body throughout the day.
Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few amazing superfoods that will make a big difference in your health and wellness.
Blueberries are considered a superfood due to their antioxidant and phytoflavinoid content. Blueberries also have ample amounts of potassium and vitamin C. Blueberries are anti-inflammatory and have been shown to lower your risk of heart disease and cancer.
Turmeric is currently enjoying quite a bit of fame and has garnered quite a reputation as a superfood. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and has been shown to provide an all-natural natural defense against cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
Kale is a TRUE superfood and the perfect base for any salad. Did you know that if you eat just one cup of chopped kale that you’ll be getting over 200% of your daily vitamin A, not to mention 134% of your vitamin C, and, lastly, nearly 700% of your daily vitamin K. Kale also has a ton of vital minerals, like potassium and copper?
