The Superfoods List

Here is a description of the Superfoods List that has been put together by a number of renowned nutritionists.

So what determines if a food qualifies for being on the Superfoods list? In a nutshell, they are any type of food that contains notably high concentrations of vitamins and minerals compared to their size. In other words they’re nutritionally potent.

Superfoods are considered anti-aging foods. They have high levels of antioxidants and phytochemicals that have been shown prevent and even reverse the effects of aging.

The Superfoods listis here:

water, green tea, red wine
spinach, broccoli, peppers, avocado, hot peppers, sprout, leeks
onions, garlic, daikon radishes, and soy
apples, blueberries, acai berries, tomatoes
kiwi, pomegranates, oranges, pumpkin
wild caught salmon, turkey, eggs
buckwheat, beans, barley, seeds, nuts, oats, walnuts, lentils
extra virgin olive oil (cold pressed), sunflower oil
dark chocolate, cinnamon, honey, yogurt, kefir
Irish moss, sea vegetables, umeboshi plums, miso, wheat grass, sea salt

 

Antioxidants are nutrients in foods that prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body. When cells in the body use needed oxygen, a natural by-product is the production of free radicals (molecules) which cause damage. People age because cells accumulate free radicals over time. Antioxidants serve as “free radical neutralizers” thereby preventing and repairing damage done by free radicals.

Phytochemicalsare plant chemicals that have been identified as containing protective disease-preventing compounds. They are associated with the prevention and treatment of at least four of the leading causes of death in Western cultures including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension. They are involved in many processes in the body including those that prevent cell damage, prevent cancer cell reproduction, and decrease LDL cholesterol levels.

As humans, we must have vitamins and minerals to survive. Without these essential nutrients, our bodies will break down, become weak, and you know the rest of the story. Recent scientific research and discoveries suggest that there could be new and more powerful nutrients that can deliver anti-ageing, anti-cancer and anti-disease protection benefits.

Superfoods are so powerful that eating just a small portion will provide a significant amount of vital nutrients, often delivering the entire recommended daily allowance (RDA) for assorted vitamins and minerals in just one small package.

As the world grows smaller from a global perspective, new and more diverse foods will be added to the superfoods list. They will be made available for purchase as demand by more consumers for these nutritionally dense, high quality foods, increases. The food processing industry will be forced to rethink and adjust their policies and practices to accommodate the new demand for quality foods as we expand our palette to include these new nutritionally superior menu items from the Superfoods List.
