If you’re wondering what super foods are, they are foods, mostly plant based, but can sometimes be derived from fish and dairy sources as well. They are so called because they have been thought to be nutritionally dense and hence, probably better for your health.
Now eating healthy is a big task by itself, but to maintain a similar diet for a prolonged period is an even bigger achievement. Super foods do not have a designated category or a food group per se, and what may or may not be classified as super foods is debatable, since there is no particular criteria to define them.
The primary reason people consume super foods is for the nutrition, health benefits and energy they give that we need to sustain ourselves. The extra doses of vitamins and minerals can help us be more resistant to diseases and live a healthier life.
Over the years, we’ve had Quinoa, wheat grass, flax seeds and millets termed as super foods, among several others. Quinoa is rich in Vitamins B & E, and is high in fiber. Also, it is gluten-free, high in protein and can help reduce blood sugar levels and help with weight loss.
Wheat grass is rich in Vitamins A, C & E and helps maintain the pH of your body because of being alkaline in nature. Flax seeds, meanwhile, contain two types of dietary fibre, and are a great source of plant based protein. Furthermore, they help in regulating blood pressure and cholesterol.
Last but not the least, millets are rich in Vitamin B, calcium and iron, with significant levels of protein and dietary fibre as well. Moreover, millets are a rich source of magnesium, which helps in reducing blood pressure and risk of a heart attack. So as you may have noticed, the health benefits super foods bring to the table are quite valuable to say the least.
