Top 10 Superfoods That Are Actually SUPER!!!


We’ve probably heard people talk about superfoods
and just how good they are for you. However, is there really any truth to it? How can a
single food really be that healthy for you? As it turns out, there are plenty of superfoods
out there that are incredibly beneficial to your overall health and well being. In many
cases, you don’t even have to go out of your way to find them. So go ahead and take a bite
out of the top ten superfoods that are actually super. Salmon A lot of people balk at the idea of eating
more fish. It’s just not as good as eating a nice hunk of red meat. Admittedly, that
might be true, but there’s no reason to completely cut fish out of your diet. The health benefits
of eating more fish are numerous, and specific types of fish are even healthier than others.
For instance, salmon, the venerable second choice at every wedding and banquet you’ve
probably ever been to, is incredibly good for you. How so? Well, aside from the protein,
salmon is packed with B vitamins and potassium. It also contains a fair amount of selenium.
Selenium is a micronutrient that acts as a powerful antioxidant. On top of that, it has
the benefits of protecting against heart disease and lowering the risk of certain cancers.
You’ve heard that fish is brain food right? That’s also due to selenium, which has been
shown to aid against mental decline. Alzheimer’s patients are often given selenium in their
food or as supplements because it helps to boost memory. Salmon is also packed with omega-3
fatty acids, which help to reduce inflammation, improve eye and brain health, and even help
to reduce anxiety and depression. Overall, more salmon in your diet is always going to
be a good thing. However, too much of any good thing can be bad, so try to keep servings
of salmon limited to 2 to 3 times a week to lower the intake of potentially dangerous
pollutants and heavy metal contamination. Checking us out for the first time? Then go

Now, more super superfoods. Blueberries These amazing little berries are believed
to have the highest amount of antioxidants among common fruits and vegetables. Those
antioxidants protect your body from free radicals, molecules that can contribute to the aging
process as well as diseases like cancer. Studies have also shown that blueberries may lower
your blood pressure and help to prevent heart disease. Blueberries, like cranberries, can
also be effective at helping to prevent urinary tract infections. Also, like salmon, blueberries
are excellent at maintaining brain function and improving memory. They may be small, but
blueberries are a mighty superfood that should be a staple in anyone’s diet. Plus, blueberries
are delicious in baked goods, yogurt, or even just on their own as a snack. On top of all
of that, you can eat frozen or fresh blueberries and get the same benefits, so don’t be afraid
to go with a bag of frozen berries, which are also great for smoothies! Nuts When you’re at a Christmas party, or any party
for that matter, if the hosts are doing a good job, they’ll have a table full of snacks.
But maybe you want to stay healthy while still being able to munch on something. You see
bowls of chips, maybe a veggie tray, and then, out of the corner of your eye, you see the
good stuff: a bowl of mixed nuts. Maybe they’re even in the shells with an included nutcracker.
You immediately go for these and enjoy the rest of the party while scarfing down on some
good old-fashioned walnuts, pecans, and hazelnuts. You’ve done well for your body, but why? Because
nuts are a secret superfood. Sure, people often malign the fact that nuts are high in
calories and fat, but the fact of the matter is that their nutritional value counteracts
these downsides pretty well. Nuts are incredibly high in nutrients like antioxidants, vitamin
E, and selenium. Remember how great selenium is for your body? Well, one brazil nut provides
100% of the daily recommended dose of selenium. Nuts are also high in fiber and low in carbohydrates,
making them an excellent choice for anyone on a low carb diet. Though they are high in
calories, nuts have been found to be excellent for people who are trying to lose weight.
That’s because your body doesn’t actually absorb all of the nut’s calories, and due
to their high fiber and protein content, nuts are very filling. Leafy Greens While we’ve got like zero science to back
this up, we think it’s probably safe to say that the average person, given the choice
between a salad and, say, a burger, is going to choose the burger every time. And that’s
too bad, because leafy greens are an incredible superfood, and by leaving them out of your
diet, you’re doing your body a huge disservice. All the adults in your life when you were
a kid told you to eat your spinach because it was good for you, and it turns out that
they were exactly right, even if they didn’t know why. Leafy greens, particularly kale,
spinach, microgreens, and cabbage, are among some of the healthiest foods you can include
in your diet. Kale, for instance, is considered one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the
planet, delivering vitamins A, K, C, and B6, as well as calcium, potassium, and manganese.
Kale is also loaded with antioxidants and can help to lower cholesterol. Not a fan of
kale? That’s fine! Spinach, one of the most ubiquitous leafy greens is also incredibly
good for you. Spinach is packed with vitamin K, and is also very high in folate, a nutrient
that plays a key role in red blood cell production, and is also incredibly beneficial during pregnancy.
Spinach can be eaten raw in a salad, but it is also incredibly easy to incorporate into
other foods, as well. Yogurt Yogurt kind of already got a shout out when
we talked about blueberries, but the truth is that this creamy, delicious dairy food
also packs a wallop when it comes to amazing health benefits. Even though some people think
of yogurt as just being a treat, it’s actually packed with nutrients, vitamins, and other
health benefits. For starters, yogurt, like other dairy products, provides a huge amount
of calcium. One cup of yogurt actually provides almost half of your daily recommended calcium
requirements. Yogurt also provides good amounts of phosphorous, magnesium, and potassium,
which are all essential for regulating blood pressure, bone health, and metabolism. While
yogurt does not naturally include vitamin D, which is another important contributor
to bone and immune system health, most varieties are fortified with it. Yogurt is also high
in protein, a nutrient that can often be hard to get outside of eating meat or eggs. The
protein in yogurt helps you to feel fuller and contributes to muscle growth. Greek yogurt,
in particular, is very high in protein, delivering far more of the essential nutrient than regular
varieties. Some yogurts also contain live probiotic bacteria, which can greatly contribute
to digestive health and even lessen the symptoms of IBS. Yogurt is also another food that is
great to eat if you’re trying to lose weight, mostly due to its fat and protein content
which helps you feel fuller. In addition to all of these health benefits, studies have
shown that the saturated fat in yogurt (once thought to be incredibly unhealthy) may help
to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of certain heart diseases. Garlic It makes food taste better, it makes your
breath smell, and it is one of the most powerful and well-known superfoods out there. That’s
right, we’re talking about garlic. On top of keeping vampires at bay and being an excellent
way to make bread taste even better, garlic has also been proven to have a variety of
positive health benefits. Plenty of nutrients can be found in garlic, despite its lack of
calories, including vitamins C and B6, fiber, selenium, and manganese. These nutrients have
been shown to have an effect on lowering blood pressure and even fighting against symptoms
of the common cold. Both raw garlic and supplements made with garlic extract have been shown to
have effective health benefits. The antioxidants in garlic have also been shown to fight against
Alzheimer’s and dementia. Add all of these health benefits up, and one of the biggest
reasons to keep eating garlic is that it can help you live longer. And to top it all off,
garlic is super easy to incorporate into your diet. Olive Oil Olive oil is one of those essential ingredients
that everyone should have in their kitchen. Not only is it great for making things like
salad dressing, but it’s also a great cooking oil (as long as it isn’t extra virgin, which
is usually the type of olive oil better reserved for making a vinaigrette). However, both varieties
of olive oil, whether you’re cooking with it or serving it with uncooked foods, provide
many health benefits. For starters, olive oil is incredibly high in monounsaturated
fats. These fats are sometimes known as oleic acid. Oleic acid has been shown to be an anti-inflammatory.
It has also been linked to positively affecting the genes that are linked to cancer, potentially
lowering the risk. As a staple of the Mediterranean diet, olive oil has been extensively studied
for its health benefits. As it turns out, people who consume more of it have been shown
to have lower blood pressure as well as better heart health overall. Olive oil, despite its
status as a fat, has also not been conclusively linked with weight gain. In fact, it has been
more positively associated with weight loss when consumed in the right quantities. Ginger Gingerbread, ginger ale, ginger snaps… There
have probably been numerous times in your life that you’ve run into ginger being used
in something. It packs a flavorful punch and it can be utilized in both savory and sweet
dishes. However, ginger has also been proven to be an incredibly healthy superfood. What
makes ginger so special? As it turns out, it’s an incredibly potent and medicinal
root that can be used as a natural remedy for a number of ailments. Not only has ginger
been shown to greatly help with nausea, but it also contains powerful anti-inflammatory
and antioxidant effects. Ginger can be used to treat chronic indigestion, and it’s also
been utilized as a cold and flu remedy for centuries. Ginger has also been used to naturally
reduce muscle pain over time. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, ginger has also been shown to
reduce pain associated with osteoarthritis and even menstrual cramps. On top of all of
that, new research has been conducted into how ginger can effectively lower blood sugar
and decrease the risk of heart disease. Like salmon and blueberries, ginger has also been
shown to contain compounds that could decrease the risk of certain cancers and improve brain
function. It’s also effective at preventing infections, due to its most powerful compound,
gingerol. Ginger has been shown to lower the risks of oral infections such as gingivitis
and periodontitis, as well as against respiratory infections like RSV. Overall, ginger is a
great food to include in your diet and is easy to incorporate into food as a seasoning.
Try it with blueberries and yogurt. Eggs Where do you even start when you want to talk
about how great eggs are? Humans have been consuming eggs and reaping their benefits
for centuries, and the reason that they have become a food staple is because of how amazing
they are for your body. On top of being one of the most versatile proteins out there,
eggs are absolutely packed with nutrients and health benefits like B vitamins and selenium.
Now, of course, we can already hear the egg detractors out there. “Eggs are high in cholesterol,”
they say, “that means they’re bad for you!” Unfortunately for these folks, they are entirely,
unequivocally wrong. Yes, eggs do contain cholesterol, however, the body’s cholesterol
count is not actually raised by dietary cholesterol. On top of that, the cholesterol in eggs may
actually help your body. As studies have shown, eggs actually raise the level of good cholesterol
in your body, while changing the bad cholesterol to a different subtype which has a lower association
with heart disease. On top of all that, eggs can be a great addition to a weight loss plan
due to the fact that they’re just so satisfying. Studies have shown that because eggs are a
lot more satiating, they may indirectly lead to a decrease in calories consumed throughout
the day. Overall, eggs are an absolutely vital and beneficial part of any good diet. Avocado What would a superfoods list be without the
king of all superfoods, the millennial obsession, avocado? You can use it to make guacamole,
spread it on toast, throw it in a salad, even blend it into a green smoothie. Avocados are
delicious, versatile, and packed with nutrients and health benefits, making them a must-have
in your kitchen. Avocados are vitamin-rich and packed with nutrients like folate, vitamin
K and potassium. In fact, on average, an avocado, on average actually contains more potassium
than a banana. Avocados also happen to be very high in soluble fiber. That fiber is
essential for digestive health, but also contributes to weight loss, lowers the risk of certain
diseases, and helps to regulate blood sugar spikes. On top of all the health benefits,
the fact of the matter is that avocados are delicious and incredibly easy to incorporate
into your diet. After all, who doesn’t love a big bowl of guacamole at a party? Avocados
are the kings of healthy foods, and though they may just seem like a trend, there’s no
reason not to partake in their wonderful flavor and incredible health benefits. Spend a little more time with us by clicking

    One of your best vids so far! One disagreement though. It was said to limit salmon intake due to pollutants and heavy metal contamination. This would only apply to farm raised salmon, not wild caught. In your vid, the salmon shown has thick bands of fat, indicating farmed salmon.

    Damnit babbletop girl. Are you passively trying to tell me what to eat before we get married? And what happened to your voice? You sound sickly and boring.
