After superman having enthralled the audience world over it is the turn of super foods. Foods with special nutrients or high level of nutrients are ruling the roost these days.//
Tesco has marketed a super tomato which has high levels of Lycopene.
The catch is that they are a little expensive if you say that for around Euro 3 for four or five.
Likewise there are many other foods which are touted as good alternatives and supply the body with many vital nutrients.
Examples are blueberries which may slow or reverse short-term memory loss, protect against heart disease, cancer and cataracts.
Chewing on a carrot a day like Mr. Bunny provides a potent dose of alpha and beta ' carotene which collects in the fat ' layers of our skin and reflect harmful ultraviolet radiation. The result is a glowing skin which has extra protection from skin cancer and from remature skin ageing and wrinkles.
Tomatoes are excellent to fight lung a stomach cancer. Cooked or processed tomatoes in pasta sauce, pizza and tomato juice will provide cardiovascular benefits and may protect against prostate, lung and stomach cancer. Cooking softens the cell walls, allowing the lycopene out.
Brazil nuts are great for body cells as they contain selenium, which helps to protect cells from DNA damage leading to wrinkles and genetic mutations that ulti1mately lead to cancer.
A cup full of beans helps keep the cholesterol in check. Kidney, borlotti and black-eyed beans lower cholesterol, stabilize blood sugar and help fight obesity - all life-extending attributes.
Another much talked about is OMEGA-3 fats in oily fish which make blood less sticky, helping prevent clots and lowering the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Still it is not an easy cake walk, there is conflicting research. It's recommended that women of childbearing age, pregnant or breastfeeding should eat no more than two portions of oily fish a week becausePage: 1 2 Related medicine news :1
