Years ago the food was different than it is now. Today you need to eat three oranges to get nutritional value of one orange that your grandparents ate. The problem with eating three oranges, though, is that you get too much sugar from them. Even if you are eating healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables, you are more likely than not getting all the nutrition you need because the foods themselves are void of nutrition.
What is the solution to the above dilemma? Eat foods that are exceptionally high in nutrition. The other solution you will learn at the end of the article.
Here are five foods exceptionally high in nutrition that I have added to my diet and have felt a major difference.
Turmeric is a superfood with many health benefits. It is excellent for many reasons, but two of them are for your joint health and heart health. The most important ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, which has anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. (source)
Unlike highly-process chocolate and cocoa powder, raw cacao has retained much of its nutritional value. It is beneficial for your skin, digestion (because it is rich in fiber), and brain function. (source)
It is also very high in iron and antioxidants. (source) Yes, this means that women should be eating it daily!
3. Royal Jelly
Royal Jelly is the food of the queen bee, and she lives 1,000 times longer than the worker bees. Royal jelly is excellent for hair and skin health, immunity, and thyroid health. It is high in B vitamins and is therefore beneficial to those who are under large amounts of stress.
4. Bee pollen
Bee pollen has many health benefits, including boosting your immunity as well as your energy levels.
According to draxe.com, here is the nutritional value of bee pollen:
- 30 percent digestible carbohydrates
- 26 percent sugars (mainly fructose and glucose)
- 23 percent protein (including 10 percent of essential amino acids)
- 5 percent lipids (including essential fatty acids)
- 2 percent phenolic compounds (including flavonoids)
- 1.6 percent minerals (including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, iron, copper, zinc, manganese, silicon and selenium)
- 0.6 percent water-soluble vitamins and acids (including B1, B2, B6 and C)
- 0.1 percent fat-soluble vitamins (including vitamins A, E and D)
5. Aloe vera gel
Yes, we all know that aloe is good for sunburn, but that is only one of its numerous benefits.
One reason to drink aloe is to help absorb nutrition from the healthy foods you are eating and the vitamins you are taking. You can go here and here to learn more about aloe. Another reason is that aloe has 12 vitamins, 20 minerals, and 18 amino acids. Unflavored aloe has only 5 calories in an 8-ounce serving; therefore, you can get much nutrition without adding many calories.
Aloe also supports healthy digestion, immunity, natural energy levels, and so much more.
