Superfood up your diet for better health.
Three in five Australian adults and one in four Australian children are overweight or obese, the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare reveals. And these rates are continuing to rise.
In a society where fast and processed foods are an easy option, there are growing concerns about health. Excess weight is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, some musculoskeletal conditions and some cancers.
One way to help combat this issue is to change what you eat. As well as maintaining a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise, incorporating wholefoods and superfoods into your diet are also an easy way to boost health that will leave you feeling full longer.
Wholefoods are foods that are unprocessed and unrefined, or as close to their natural form as possible.
Superfoods are said to have incredible health benefits and contain powerful nutrients that protect against cancer and heart disease, lower cholesterol, protect the organs from toxins and improve digestive health. The term Superfoods is used to describe foods high in phytonutrients- plant-derived compounds with potential health benefits. They are foods that are easily absorbed with high nutritional value and natural vitamins. Some commonly consumed superfoods include: blueberries, broccoli, oats, oranges, pumpkin, salmon, spinach, tea, tomatoes, turkey, walnuts and yoghurt.
Many consumers are becoming much more aware of what they are putting into their bodies creating a greater demand for foods to be pure and clean. Therefore we are seeing an increasing trend of many going back to our primal basics, with nutrition, with the rise of clean, organic and paleo like foods.
Australian nutrition brand Professional Whey provides a selection of organic wholefoods and superfoods to add more nutrients to support your health and fitness. Their organic wholefoods selection includes delicious organic almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, cacao butter, coconut oil, oats and walnuts which can all be easily incorporated into your daily diet.
One of the best ways to reap the many health benefits of superfoods is to choose from Professional Whey's list of cacao nibs, golden berries, maca, acai, maqui berry and chia seeds which are great in yoghurt and shakes.
