Best Foods to Boost Your Health

“A healthy outside starts from a healthy inside.” – Robert Urich

Being healthy starts from the inside so it’s important to keep a healthy diet filled with foods that are nutritious and rich in vitamins and minerals! Here are a few foods that can help boost your health for a happy, healthy lifestyle!

Avocados

Loaded with various healthy fats and anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, eating avocados are ideal for people with liver health concerns. While many believe they are vegetables, they are technically a fruit, provide vital vitamins and minerals, and act as a nutrient booster by allowing the body to absorb fat-soluble nutrients.

Blueberries

Studies have shown that increasing the intake of plant foods like blueberries can lower the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and overall mortality. They also promote hair and skin health, boost energy, and help manage weight. Blueberries are also good for your heart, increases bone strength, helps manage blood pressure, prevents cancer, and is good for your mental health.

Pumpkin seeds

Pumpkin seeds packed full of nutrients. Eating just a small amount can give you a great quantity of healthy fats, magnesium and zinc. Because of the substantial amounts of nutrients, pumpkin seeds have been associated with several health benefits. Some health benefits include improving heart health, improving prostate health and protection against certain cancers. Studies have shown that pumpkin can also reduce blood sugar.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes contain large amounts of lycopene, a carotenoid thought to have the highest antioxidant activity of all the carotenoids. Tomatoes are also known to have properties that may help reduce the risk of prostate cancer and pancreatic cancer. Researchers from the University of Montreal found that lycopene (provided mainly by tomatoes) was linked to a 31% reduction in pancreatic cancer risk between men with the highest and lowest intakes of this carotenoid.

Chickpeas

Chickpeas are part of the legume family and are a great source of vitamins, minerals, and fibers. They are also high in protein which make them a popular food among vegetarians. These garbanzo beans also contain B Vitamins, folate, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, iron and magnesium. They are known for health benefits that include managing weight, controlling blood sugar, and reducing the risk of disease.
