Super Foods

I think we all strive to live a healthier life. When I find information useful about the power of foods, I like to share. Each season I will review one super food, give you features of the food and how much you should be eating. My hopes are that by reviewing only one food at a time, including it into your diet will be easy. If at any time you would like more information or where I get my information please contact me at info@salonandspapromotions.com

Small as they may be the blueberry packs more antioxidants than any other fruit or vegetable!! Some people are calling these wonders brain food or youth food. One serving of blueberries has more antioxidants than 5 servings of apples, broccoli, carrots or squash. In fact 2/3 of a cup of these nutritional giants pack more protection than 1700 IU od vitamin E which is more protection than 1200 Milligrams of Vitamin C. WOW!

The health and anti-aging benefits are so great it would be silly to not include these berries in our everyday life. Lets review some:

  • Lower risk for Cardiovascular disease
  • Likely to protect from Cancer
  • Helps keep skin looking young and reduces sagging that age so generously give us

Studies have shown that those who ate 1 cup of blueberries a day had increased levels of antioxidants in their blood which is important to prevent cardiovascular disease, diabetes, senility, caner and degenerative eye diseases. We have only begun to see the power of eating right, but so far we know eating 1 cup of blueberries a day is a step in the right direction. Who doesn't love blueberries!!!!
