If you thought that term superfood is only used for exotic ingredients which can’t be found at your local store, you’re wrong. In fact, ingredients from this list can be found at any store or flea market, and still, we neglect them over fast food. There is a lot of foods you can use to enrich your organism today.

1. Almond Milk

This simple replacement for your ordinary milk is rich in magnesium, potassium, and vitamin E. It doesn’t have a lot of calories and it is very good for your heart. It doesn’t contain any cholesterol and it has only 5mg of sodium and 8g of carbohydrates per portion. One more good side to it is that it has low glycemic index.

2. Spinach

This vegetable is extremely healthy; it’s full of niacin, zinc, and fiber. Spinach is low in calories, so it’s really good if you’re trying to lose weight, and at the same time, it is full of nutrients. It prevents degeneration of yellow spot in the eye, which comes with age, just like a cataract. Doctors claim that it can prevent certain types of cancer and that it is great for the cardiovascular system.

3. Honey

This is probably not a surprise, but honey deserved its place on this list. It is full of vitamin B6, B1, niacin and amino acids. It is full of antioxidants which help our body fight free radicals, and it contains oligosaccharides which increase the number of good bacteria in our intestines.

4. Raspberries

This is one of our favorite and most delicious super ingredients. They’re full of flavonoids and magnesium, which make them one of the fruits richest in antioxidants. The ingredient which is specific for raspberries is ellagic acid, which fights cancer and inflammations.

5. Oranges

This wonderful citrus fruit is rich in vitamin C, a group of vitamin B, fiber, and calcium. Just one mid-size orange will satisfy all of your daily needs for vitamin C, which is really important for your immune system. They’re great source of fiber and keep in mind that it is better that you eat them rather than to squeeze the juice out of them.

6. Bananas

Bananas are a great source of potassium as well as fibers. Potassium is especially necessary for people who have a problem with high blood pressure because it’s proven to reduce it. Fibers that are found in bananas improve our metabolism. Don’t think that if they’re sweet that you need to stay away from them.

7. Strawberries

One of our favorite summer fruits is actually really healthy. Strawberries are full of vitamin C as well as folic acid. Just one cup of this fruit contains enough vitamin C human organism needs for a day, and folic acid will protect your heart. As a bonus, strawberries are great for teeth whitening.
