    Goji berries are a recent superfood discovery. They are round and red, rather sweet tasting. Grown in China, Tibet and Mongolia, goji berries were traditionally used to boost energy and stimulate Qi (energy flow).

  • Oats

    Oats have a high fibre content, half soluble and half insoluble. The soluble fibre portion contains a component called beta-glucans which has some blood cholesterol-lowering effects. The whole-oat variety, either rolled oats or grains, is a very good source of tocotrienols (vitamin E family). Try adding oats to your fruit at breakfast because it slows down the blood sugar level spike. Dietary fibre has shown to lower the incidence of cancer, possibly because it contains lignan. The insoluble fibre is crucial for promoting bowel action and thereby relieving constipation problems. Oats also contain essential fatty acids, a good profile of amino acids and a range of vitamins and minerals including zinc, selenium, iron, magnesium and manganese.

  • Garlic

    Garlic is another fantastic superfood to use on a daily basis if possible. You can use it fresh in your food or in capsule form. Garlic’s chief medicinal benefits are its blood pressure-lowering, lipid-reducing and atherosclerotic prevention properties. Garlic has also been shown to reduce the coaguability of blood by reducing platelet aggregation. It is also well-known as a natural anti-biotic.

  • Blueberries

    Blueberries are real little health powerhouses full of antioxidants and other health-promoting substances which support eye, heart and urinary tract health in particular. Blueberries have anti-ageing properties; they decrease free radicals that can damage organs and have important health effects on the brain. These positive effects may be due to its high anthocyanin and proanthocyanidin content. Add them to your oats for breakfast or put them in a smoothie.

  • Cruciferous Vegetables

    These include broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, bok choy and cauliflower. If you can eat three or more servings of these vegetables per week studies indicate that you could reduce prostate cancer risk almost by half, and in women the risk of breast cancer is significantly reduced. Other cancers may be prevented too. Cruciferous vegetables also contain compounds that help the liver to detox.

There are other superfoods such as cold-water fish with its high omega-3 fatty acid content; most healthy seeds such as pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds; flax seeds with their particular combination of fatty acids. Plainly put, superfoods are by far the best health foods to eat.
