The New Top 10 Superfoods List

The New Top 10 Everyday Superfoods List

Purslane is rich on Omega 3 Fatty AcidsOften patients ask me what they should eat and what the best food for their is, I have to remind them of the fact that there is no one single superfood or even a healthy food group that works like a magic bullet for your health. Rather, eating a wide variety of foods, consisting mainly of organic fresh fruits and vegetables, is the most savvy way to practice a smart of the body. Lately new research in the field of shows that certain foods stand above the rest as sources of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. These are the foods we now like to call "Superfoods".

Not many people are aware of what really matters, when it comes to making healthy food choices. Common knowledge is that you can't go wrong with broccoli, spinach and oranges. And then? Many, for not to say most of the healthiest foods in the world are constantly overlooked. I have evaluated the latest research on nutrients to create an updated list of everyday superfoods that should be, in one way or the other, on your nutritional diet for most days of the week.

  1. Cinnamon – This absolutely must be the hottest stuff in town! With more than a quarter of a million ORAC antioxidant units per 100 gram it is very rich in antioxidants! Cinnamon has long been used for  cooking in Middle Eastern cuisines,. Cinnamon has proven to lower blood sugar levels, triglycerides and bad (LDL) cholesterol levels. Just a quarter teaspoon every second day sprinkled over coffee or cereal is beneficial. I am using it in tea as well.
  2. Goji Berries – These berries have been used as medicinal food for centuries in Tibet and in China. The sweet tasting Goji berries have more antioxidant power than most foods on the planet. Studies have shown that they also lowers , and therefore lowers the risk of diabetes. Eat these red and tasty berries as is or add them to cereal or yogurt or put a handful into the salad every day.
  3. Pomegranate Juice -A sticky red juice, loaded with Vitamin C. Only a small glass of this sweet-tart juice each day may decrease your systolic blood pressure by 21 percent over the course of a year!
  4. Cabbage – A Stanford University study showes that Cabbage helps to increase the production of cancer-fighting enzymes in our body. This happens thanks to a chemical called sulforaphane. Eat cabbage on sandwiches in place of lettuce for a satisfying crunch or make a tangy coleslaw using cider vinegar and yogurt instead of mayo. Fine cut cabbage and add it to any salad. Not only does it look good, it is also very beneficial for your digestion.
  5. Guava– Is a tropical fruit containing more lycopene, the very antioxidant that fights prostate cancer, than either tomatoes or watermelon. It is furthermore loaded with organic fiber and potassium. The best way to eat guava is fresh.The seeds and rind of the fruit are also edible.
  6. Beets – Naturally sweet, this often-overlooked vegetable is high in folate and betaine, which reduce your risk of heart disease by lowering homocysteine levels in the blood. You'll gain the greatest benefit by eating this colorful veggie raw. Just peel the and grate into salads, pasta and grain dishes. The leaves are edible too-saute them like spinach.
  7. Purslane – Is a very common green in the Chinese, the Mexican, Thai and the Greek kitchen, this little green leafs contain more heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids than any other plant know today.It also contains high levels of the cancer-fighting antioxidant melatonin. Find the crisp, lemony leaves at farmers' and ethnic markets and add them to your salads.
  8. Pumpkin Seeds – Just one ounce of roasted Pumkin seeds provide you 150 mg magnesium. Reaching the daily requirement of 420 mg of this vital nutrient has been shown to reduce the risk of death by 40 percent. Eating the whole seeds also provides a healthy dose of fiber.
  9. Swiss Chard – Lately a Harvard study has shown this leafy green protects the health of our eyes with abundant levels of lutein and zeaxanthin. These chemicals absorb shortwave light that would otherwise damage the retina. Saute a bunch of the mild leaves with garlic in extra virgin olive oil and serve alongside chicken or fish or fine cut them into your salads.
  10. Dried Prunes – This healthy super food fights cancer causing cell damage with an abundance of the antioxidants, neochlorogenic and chlorogenic acid. Grab a few of these sweet dried fruits as a snack or gussy them up by stuffing them with goat cheese and serving as an appetizer but take care not to eat too many at once as this might have an unwanted cleansing effect of your digesting system….

I hope this list of everyday superfoods has reminded you of a few things you haven't eaten in a while and revealed new nutrition information and superfood stars for you to try. Remember, no one food can provide all the nutrition you need for your optimal health, only variety is the key to a successful disease-fighting diet. Add these new superfoods to your shopping list tomorrow, and your body and mind will both enjoy the benefits for many years to come!
