When it comes to staying fit and healthy, we all know that a combination of exercise and a balanced diet is the key. Whilst exercising is mostly straightforward - increasing the heart rate to burn calories - there can be a difficulty in finding the right foods to best compliment working out. With so much to choose from and an array of hidden ingredients, you never know what you might be eating. Superfoods (so called owing to their 'super' health benefits) may be the answer to this problem. By incorporating them into our everyday diet we reduce the risk of chronic disease and can even prolong life. Toby Maguire, Master Practitioner at The BodyHoliday, St Lucia, says many people lack essential nutrients and vitamins from their diets and consume under their recommended 5-a-day of fruit and veg. By meeting our 5-a-day quota and combining superfoods into our diet, we can strengthen the heart, reduce acidity in our bodies and boost the immune system.
Although 'superfood' is no legal definition, these 'nutrient powerhouses' pack large doses of antioxidants, polyphenols, minerals and vitamins to help you remain slimmer and healthier. Here, we round up the top 10 superfoods around, the health benefits they offer and how to fit them into your diet.
