[Yakson House] Top 10 superfoods list

I know many of you already know what's good food and what's bad food. 

it's generally accepted that super foods contain high levels of much needed vitamins 

and minerals. They can also be a source of antioxidants, substances that shield our 

bodies from cell damage and help prevent disease. 

I will tell you some of the super foods that's worth getting to know.

1. Blueberry

Did you know that much of the power of blueberries lies in their color? That deep blue 

color is a by-product of flavonoids - natural compounds that protect the brain's memory 

carrying cells from the damaging effects of oxidation and inflammation. blueberries are 

one of the best sources of flavonoids you can find and it's no surprise that this 

superfood has been shown to help preserve memory function.  

Blueberries, like other berries, also have a high water content, which makes them 

hydrating for your skin and other cells of the body. 

2. Dark Chocolate

Believe it or not, chocolate is a healthy treat. As long as you choose wise. Dark 

Chocolate is rich in antioxidants that have been shown to lower blood pressure, improve 

blood flow, and boost overall heart health.  Choose chocolate that is at least 70 percent 

cacao or cocoa to optimize the antioxidant power and health benefits. Dark chocolate 

may even boost your mood. There's no scientific explanation for why, the rich taste and 

sensuous mouth feel of a piece of dark chocolate may be to thank. Just to be sure to 

keep your portions in check because chocolate is quite high in calories. ^^

3. Pumpkin

Pumpkin is loaded with nutrients that will help your heart, bones, eyes and skin. Beta-

carotene and potassium are the two standouts here.

Beta-carotene is an antioxidant that helps rejuvenate skin, protect your vision, and may 

even reduce risk of arthritis. 

Potassium is a mineral involved in lowering blood pressure and maintaining healthy 

bones. use fresh or canned pumpkin in stews, soups, pies, or pureed as a side dish or 

add a scoop to some nonfat yogurt for a yummy snack
