5 Superfoods For Your Health!

I was recently on a live talk show in DC, called “Let’s Talk Live”, discussing 5 superfoods.  I specifically chose these foods not only for their super nutrient density and health promoting benefits, but for ease of access and use.  So, here they are (be sure to get all these products in their Organic variety):

1. Kale – Highest scoring fresh veggie on the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale.

2. Hemp Seeds – An awesome protein source with all the essential amino acids, and a complete Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acid profile

3. Goji Berries – A new one on the mass market scene – although has been around in ancient Chinese Medicine for thousands of years!  A super scorer on the ORAC scale, chock full of Beta Carotenes.

4. Yoghurt  or Kefir – Fermented food;  need I say more?  Approximately 80% of your immune system is in your gut.  Keep your gut teaming with good bugs with these “alive” products.

5. Cacao Powder – A super scorer on the ORAC scale, full of magnesium and feel good endorphin like qualities.  Dark chocolate is another good place to find these antioxidants.
