Superfoods, what are they? and why we should include them in our diet.

In recent times there is much talk about the superfoods and the excellence for our health that are derived from their consumption. But what are superfoods and what benefits do they bring us? We explain it here in Greenvita.

According to the prestigious Mayo Clinic superfoods are those foods that meet at least three requirements: be an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, minerals; with high content in phytonutrients and antioxidant compounds and of low caloric density.

Eating habits and new recipes of some processed foods present in the Western diet have resulted in the failure to consume minerals, vitamins and nutrients, which are fundamental in our diet to improve our health. We have gone from the real aim of eating which is to nourish our body, to quench our appetite.

Mostly when talking about superfoods it is raw foods that are more nutrient dense than processed and cooked foods. Abundant in enzymes, they are also filled with vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and phytochemicals, which help protect us from disease. Rich in antioxidants have great therapeutic potential and anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties.

what are the superfoods

The concept of food as medicine has been known since the time of Hippocrates “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.” All in all, the value of eating well, the importance of diet and the potential of certain foods for health and well-being are recognized.

We must include the superfoods in our diet to get back to a diet that takes care of our body in a natural way.

Currently among the most popular superfoods are: chia seeds, quinoa, kale, alfalfa sprouts, turmeric, spirulina kelp, green tea, blueberries etc. But we must not forget that the habitul consumers of the Mediterranean diet have our own super-foods nearby, namely: olive oil, broccoli, legumes, oranges, walnuts, sardines, garlic, tomato and the Iberian ham among others.
