What do superfoods do for your body
A mix of aronia berries and pomegranate seeds is also ideal as an ingredient in muesli or a delicious snack. In terms of taste, the ginger goes very well with the pomegranate. Rub some of it into your pomegranate juice, the resulting aroma is fantastic! Not to mention the added benefits of ginger.
12. Superfood: ginger
Ginger should - if you hopefully like it - really be mixed into every drink. No matter whether it's tea, juice, water, smoothie, protein drink - ginger fits everywhere!
For ginger tea, by the way, simply mix a piece of raw ginger with hot water - done. Such a tea is much more effective than the usual tea recipes, in which the ginger is cooked far too long. Ginger gives momentum, concentration and freshness. It also dispels nausea and some forms of pain. The pain-relieving effect of ginger on headaches is known, but also on muscle aches: Ginger - effect against pain
Diabetics who regularly consume ginger are also less likely to develop cataracts than diabetics who do not like ginger. So ginger seems to protect the eyes. And as is typical for a superfood, ginger is also very anti-cancer. It reduces the aggression potential of cancer cells and in some cases can even drive degenerate cells into suicide.
Ginger can even be used externally and in the form of ginger oils and ginger vinegar work against dandruff and hair loss: Ginger against hair problems such as hair loss
Another superfood can give your hair a dazzling shine: the avocado. Together with olive oil, a little honey and lemon juice, the tropical fruit makes a wonderful hair mask that you leave on for an hour before you rinse it off thoroughly.
13. Superfood: Avocados
If fat, then avocados - one could say that. Avocados are very original fruits and their fat is completely unaffected in the fruit. In contrast to bottled oil or fat, it cannot oxidize. It enters your body completely pure and natural.
Of course, the avocado does not increase your cholesterol level and also does not contribute to obesity - even though it consists of up to 20 percent fat. On the contrary: according to studies, the avocado reduces all risk factors that could lead to cardiovascular problems, osteoporosis, cancer and inflammation
Avocados therefore fit very well into a healthy diet. The buttery fruits keep you full and fit in many dishes. So the avocado ensures that you eat smaller amounts of the usual less healthy filling foods (bread, pasta) and also smaller amounts of other fats.
You need less butter (try mashed avocados with a little salt on the bread) and instead of cream, add pureed avocado to the soup after cooking. Avocados also taste at least as good with potatoes as butter. And if you're making a dressing or dip, avocados can replace the oil or dairy product. So before you use a salad oil of not that good quality, it is better to reach for a ripe avocado.
Even rich chocolate creams or chocolate ice cream are conjured up from avocados in the raw food scene.
And if you want to spice up your avocado mousse or whatever dish you want, use the last two superfoods: Curcuma and oregano!
14. Superfood: turmeric
Turmeric is the spice that is best used on a daily basis. We have explained the best way to do this here: Turmeric - Six tips for correct use. Why You Should Eat or Drink Turmeric Every Day? Very easily:
Turmeric is a highly effective antioxidant and has been shown to help against cancer (e.g. against prostate cancer), supports dental health and can be used to remove mercury. Turmeric appears to have a protective effect against leukemia in children. At the same time, turmeric protects against fluorides, which can have numerous health disadvantages - even if they can harden your teeth.
The brain benefits particularly from turmeric, as the yellow powder protects it from damage by alcohol, for example. But turmeric also seems to have a positive effect on dementia and Alzheimer's disease, as we have summarized here: Natural measures for Alzheimer's disease
Turmeric also heals the liver, prevents gallstones and is a blessing for diabetes. Turmeric is also a valuable home remedy for sinus infections, as well as for herpes and irritable bowel syndrome. And if you don't want to eat Indian today, swap turmeric for superfood no.15, oregano.
15. Superfood: oregano
Oregano should by no means only be used on pizza and in the pasta sauce. Oregano is so valuable that you should first grow it - ideally in several pots - on your windowsill, on the balcony or in the garden so that you always have it fresh to hand before you add it to all the dishes land on your table.
Oregano even tastes flawless in a green smoothie and it goes well chopped on bread with avocado mousse. Oregano is delicious in salads, in every burger you make yourself, in every casserole and in almost every soup.
Oregano will always keep your body tidy and clean. It works as a natural antibiotic and frees you from uninvited guests in the event of parasite infestation - ideally together with superfood No. 7, the papaya seeds. Oregano is also one of the natural measures for fungal infections, and oregano is used internally and externally for vaginal thrush.
How To Use The Superfood List: A Day Full Of Superfoods
It is very easy to pack as many superfoods as possible from our list into your menu:
- Start the day with a ginger tea. Add turmeric if you like.
- In addition to lots of fresh berries, add a mix of aronia berries and pomegranate seeds to your muesli. In addition, sprinkle a spoonful of grape seed flour and baobab fruit powder on top
- In the late morning you can enjoy a green smoothie with plenty of green leafy vegetables including some oregano leaves and a daily dose of acerola powder.
- Your dressing for lunch is seasoned with horseradish (a cruciferous vegetable) and a vegetable made from broccoli, another type of cabbage or the shiitake mushroom. The rice is seasoned with turmeric.
- In the afternoon, drink a glass or two of pomegranate juice.
- Avocado mousse with oregano is added to the whole grain bread in the evening. Served with a serving of raw sauerkraut with a spoon of hemp oil.
- And whenever you feel like a snack, nibble on pumpkin seeds, almonds and a spicy papaya seed in between. Or you fill the papaya kernels in your pepper mill and use them to "pepper" your dishes.
