6 Superfoods That Instantly Boost Your Health

  1. First of all, it might be useful to briefly explain exactly what superfoods are. You've probably heard of it and it sometimes confuses you.

  1. What are they?

  1. Superfoods are foods that provide ultimate support for your body and that contain the right dose of vitamins, minerals and amino acids and anti-oxidants that your body needs to function properly. In addition, they will also support your body to remove so-called free radicals.

  1. Every kind of fruit or vegetable contains these nutrients but there are foods that stand head and shoulders above them! Superfoods contain the perfect ratio of several substances that your body cannot get out of anywhere else.

  1. Superfoods also have a good influence on your blood pressure, cholesterol level and the "energy management" of your body.

  1. Why aren't more superfoods eaten?

  1. If these foods are so good for you, why are we eating them so little? There are a number of reasons for this, and the first is that not everyone is aware of these so-called superfoods, while some superfoods are right under our noses.

  1. We sometimes eat them without realizing it. In addition, it is often also the case that people regard them as not tasty food. This has to do with the fact that as a child we naturally did not want to eat vegetables and that will have an effect in the future.

  1. We humans have a natural aversion to raw vegetables (nowadays) and that's because we used to get too many alternatives in the form of sweets and other seasonings that kids loved.

  1. Anyway, enough about this I'll give you some superfoods below:

  1. 1. Celery You might think what's in this 90% water-filled green stem. Well, I'll tell you that celery has a healing effect on the body due to the antioxidants it contains (1).

  1. 2. Seaweed In Japan this is eaten almost daily, but in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe it is still not available! Seaweed is available in 4 different colors and each of these colors of seaweed is a good source of calcium and protein (2).

  1. 3. Hemp seeds Hemp can not only be smoked, hemp seeds also contain a lot of omega 3 fatty acids that greatly reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. You are supposed to eat the seeds :-).

  1. 4. Scallops You can often get these shells in a restaurant, but then there are other calories such as fatty sauce, etc. But if you look purely at the scallops, this is very healthy. This shell consists of 80% proteins. You need these again for muscle recovery, for example.

  1. 5. Dark meat It is true that dark meat contains more fat than white meat. But here is precisely the difference. This fat ensures the production of a hormone that makes you no longer hungry! So you can skip the evening snack! Eat this in moderation!

  1. 6. Lentils Your ancestors often ate this several times a week. One of the benefits of lentils is that it contains, for example, 50% more folic acid than spinach! In addition, people who have lentils in their diet often suffer less from obesity and type II diabetes (3).

What are the benefits of these superfoods?

  1. It is very easy to eat these foods on a daily basis. All it takes is to become aware that these foods are super good for your body and can actually contribute to optimal health. What's easier than giving your body a boost by eating a little celery, for example?
