Meet the nutrient-packed POWERhouses!

Mar 7, 2024 | Food as Medicine

Ever heard of functional foods? 🤔

They’re not your average groceries. These nutrient-packed powerhouses go beyond basic nutrition to provide additional health benefits.

Essentially, they’re foods that do more than fill your stomach. Loaded with bioactive compounds like antioxidants, phytochemicals, and probiotics, they help boost immunity, regulate digestion, promote heart health, and even enhance cognitive function.

Food is not just fuel; it’s medicine, too!

You’ll find functional foods in EVERY aisle of the grocery store.
​Some common examples include:

Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, berries like blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries are renowned for their anti-inflammatory properties and ability to support brain health.

Spinach, kale, and Swiss chard are rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber, making them excellent choices for promoting digestive health and reducing the risk of chronic diseases.

Salmon, mackerel, and sardines are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids essential for heart health, brain function, and reducing inflammation.

A probiotic powerhouse, yogurt contains beneficial bacteria that support gut health and boost immunity.

This golden spice contains curcumin, a potent anti-inflammatory compound that may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s.

“Proper nutrition is the difference between feeling exhausted and getting the most out of a workout.”
