Superfoods

Experts say that a healthy diet incorporating a variety of so-called superfoods will help people maintain their weight, fight disease, and live longer.

Vegetables Are Good For You

Eating vegetables is an easy way to help a poor diet become healthier again. First of all, it is proven that vegetables contain a number of antioxidants that may help to stop certain cancers from forming in the body. These antioxidants like vitamin C also help the body to repair after long bouts of stress and illness and help to protect the body in the future. Tomatoes, for example, include lycopene which can even help to protect your eyes from sight problems.

The Avocado, a superfood

Research has found that certain nutrients are absorbed better when eaten with avocado. In one study, when participants ate a salad containing avocados, they absorbed five times the amount of carotenoids (a group of nutrients that includes lycopene and beta carotene) than those who didn't include avocados.
