Top 5 Foods You Should Eat Daily


Everyone has heard which foods to avoid, but what foods should we eat?


Oranges
– Eating an orange is like taking a wonderful tasting vitamin. Oranges have folic acid, fiber, antioxidants beta-carotene, and vitamin C. On top of all this they also have anticancer effects.


Sweet Potatoes or Yams
– The sweet potato ranked the highest in a nutrition study in 1992. The next highest vegetable was the regular potato with 84 points, while yams and sweet potatoes had 184 points. Impressive! Yams and sweet potatoes (no, they are not the same thing) have fiber, complex carbohydrates, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, and calcium. Sweet potatoes can be eaten baked, or raw.


Cottage Cheese
– Are you trying to lose weight? Do you have a stomach ache/bowel problem/digestion difficulty? Try cottage cheese! Casein, the slowest digested protein, is the protein found in cottage cheese. Cottage cheese has good bacteria which will keep your intestines healthy and smooth out digestion problems.


Chili Peppers
– Chili peppers are full of capsaicin, an anti-inflammatory which improves circulation. Chili peppers purify your blood, fight ulcers, and prevent prostate cancer. This hot veggie will keep you in shape for a long time.


Carrots
– Carrots improve your vision. This is because the beta-carotene in your body is converted to vitamin A with the help of carrots, and your eyes absorb this new vitamin A and make it into a night vision pigment. Carrots contain beta-carotene which improves your cells communication and can ultimately help prevent cancer cells from forming; beta-carotene also helps prevent skin diseases . Alpha-carotene is also found in abundance in carrots. Alpha-carotene helps prevent tumors.

Foods that Fight Depression

Amino Acids – Amino acids are essential for the body to make neurotransmitters which send signals to the brain and affect your mood. Some amino acids make serotonin which is a feel good chemical.

Foods with Amino Acids: Turkey, cheese, fish, almonds, chicken, avocadoes, bananas and beans

Vitamin B6 & B12 – These vitamins also help the body make neurotransmitters. If the body does not receive enough vitamin B, serotonin levels will drop. Vitamin B12 helps make SAM-e. Some studies have shown that when levels of SAM-e drop, symptoms of depression become noticeable.

Foods with Vitamin B6: beef, tuna, bananas, turkey, chickpeas
Foods with Vitamin B12: clams, oysters, chicken, crab, salmon, turkey, tuna, milk, eggs

Magnesium – those who suffer from depression usually have lower magnesium levels. Magnesium is crucial for the formation of serotonin and other neurotransmitters. Magnesium treatment may also help anxiety and insomnia problems associated with depression.

Foods with Magnesium: oat bran, halibut, spinach, barley, beans, and artichokes. Taking an Epsom salt bath will also increase magnesium levels.

Omega 3Omega 3 boosts oxygen levels in the blood increasing the body’s ability to convert amino acids into neurotransmitters. Studies have found that those with a lack of Omega 3 acids have less of a capability to send feel-good chemicals like serotonin, dopamine and nor epinephrine to the brain.

Foods with Omega 3: salmon, sardines, tuna, flax seeds, and walnuts.

Watch Out!! – Some multivitamin formulas can contain “tag-along” ingredients picked up from the manufacturing plant that may not be the most favorable products to be taking regularly. Make sure to research and choose a reputable multivitamin like Centrum, VitaVim, Maltlevol (liquid), or One-A-Day (men’s or women’s), which were found to be free of extra ingredients. If you are pregnant, on prescription medicine, or just don’t know what vitamins are best for your body, seek advice from your healthcare professional.

A multivitamin is a supplement intended to improve your diet via providing you with the essential vitamins and minerals needed by the body to stay healthy. They are not only needed and used by those with dietary imbalances or specific dietary needs, but by those who are appreciative of their overall well-being… and also the rest of us, who neglect the importance of eating natural food that takes longer than 5 microwave-minutes to prepare.

It has been reported that those who take multivitamins daily noticed a positive change in their overall health. Specific vitamins and minerals allow us to benefit in different ways. A balanced daily intake of vitamins and minerals ensures overall stability for your body. In our highly demanding lifestyles, there are many things that hinder our ability to relax and cause stress. Although almost all vitamins have the uncanny ability to combat stress, vitamin B12 is proven to be the most effective in reducing stress. Vitamin B12 helps your body produce serotonin, (a feel-good chemical) that travels directly to the brain.

Multivitamins usually contain a number of fundamental vitamins such as vitamin A, C, D, E, K and B12. These vitamins are the basis of good health and if our body were to have a major deficiency of any of them, the effects would be quickly recognized. Some multivitamins also contain minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, and magnesium, which all do their part in ensuring optimum physical and mental vitality. Taking a daily multivitamin is a small contribution to the body that anyone can benefit from.
