The term health food or superfood is generally used to describe foods that are considered to provide specific favourable effects on health. Health foods have no damaging effect on our overall health and might even be beneficial to our health. For example the term superfoods is being used for foods which are low in calories, but high in nutrients. They often contain high levels of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Examples are goji berries, brazil nuts and seaweed.
At the Stirling Health Food Store we sell a large variety of healthy foods.
- Beetroot juice
New research suggests that a glass of beetroot juice a day could lower your blood pressure. Beetroot juice contains the chemical nitrate, which reduces blood pressure. And therefore might cut the risk of heart disease and stroke.
- Goji berries
Goji berries are also known as wolfberries or lycium fruits. They contain high levels of antioxidants, which help mop up free radicals in the body.
- Brazil nuts
Brazil nuts are particularly healthy because they contain a high level of selenium, only 8 brazil nuts a day contain your recommended daily amount of this mineral. Combined with their high protein levels brazil nuts are the ideal snack.
- Acai juice
Again this purple coloured berry from South America is high in antioxidants. It might help with weight loss, prevention of various illnesses and premature ageing. To get optimum benefits make sure you get one without added sugar.
