Superfoods are one of the newest trends in the nutrition business. People are becoming more and more concerned with what they eat and how they eat, and weird enough, this seems to come from younger generations more than the older ones. Superfoods are dishes full of everything the body needs to function and can get you from sick to heathy in matters of days or hours. Never heard of them so far? You might be eating some already without knowing how good they actually are for you.
Here are our top 5 picks for this spring:
1. Chicken soup
Our parents all had a good point – chicken soup is great for our bodies and our immune systems. High in zinc and iron, as well as vitamin C from all the vegetables it usually comes with, chicken soup is one of the oldest and most used remedies.
2. Green tea
Known as a solid superfood, green tea gets rid of free radicals in the body, meaning it diminishes the risk of cancer, among many other benefits. It is also a great antioxidant and can greatly reduce the time you spend sick.
Whether you put it in your tea or use it to create various types of desserts, honey is just as great. It can be used with a great degree of effectiveness to treat indigestion and acid reflux and can replace sugar in almost any drink, with no side effects. What’s not to love about it?
Apart from avoiding colds, garlic is a great supplement for your immune system, regardless of the way you take it.
Yoghurt contains “good” bacteria, probiotics that help decrease the number of “bad” bacteria we have in our bodies. It’s a great way to support our body in living a healthier lifestyle while also being very tasty, especially combined with fresh fruit.
