Superfoods That Are Nutritionally Dense Help Your Body!
Superfoods are foods that are naturally "nutritionally dense", which also have extra health benefits which come from antioxidants and phytochemicals. I''ll cover each of those terms as well as the benefits of foods that are dense with nutrients to help with you body health.
Being dense in nutrients means that the food has higher levels of essential vitamins and dietary minerals than simple foods that we know are required by your body. That includes all the vitamins you know so well such as vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, and also dietary minerals such as Calcium, Iron, Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and many others.
Many foods, of course, contain these healthy nutrients. In fact, most food we eat every day (even junk food) contains at least some vitamins and minerals. What''s so special about superfoods that makes it more important to the body than regular everyday foods?
The primary difference is that these nutritionally fortified foods have an unusually high concentration of nutrients for their portions when compared to other normal foods. For example, cucumbers are made up of mostly (90% or so) water. In order to get any sufficient level of nutrients from a cucumber, you''d have to eat quite a few of them!
These great foods are so nutritionally strong that even a small amount such as a single mouthful can provide you with a decent sized portion of nutrients, sometimes providing your entire recommended daily allowance (or more) for an individual of vitamins or minerals all in one bite. Now that''s super!
There are very few foods available that show such high levels of nutrients in such tiny quantities, and that''s why these super foods are so great. They can deliver nutrition like you''ve never felt before.
