7 Greatest Foods For Your Body


If you want to stay healthy and keep your body in the best condition, you will want to read these 7 foods that keep your bones strong, better hair growth, and prevent diseases.

Kiwi for Your Bones

Eating kiwi will not only help maintain clear skin, it will also promote healthy bones. Lisa Drayer, MA, RD, author of The Beauty Diet, says one cup peeled kiwi contains more vitamin C than the equivalent amount of oranges. Plus, it neutralizes free radicals that could lead to things like cancer and heart disease.

 

Avocado for Shiny Hair

“Long touted as the miracle hair food, they’re high in vitamins B and E which promote a healthy scalp and the growth of new strands,” says Cynthia Pasquella, certified clinical nutritionist, SoCal Cleanse founder. “They’re also full of healthy, monounsaturated fats to plump up and moisturize hair follicles. Talk about shine!”

 

Oysters for Your Eyes

Not only are oysters full of zinc and selenium, according to Drayer, the high levels of these minerals serve as an antioxidant and help protect you against eye-related disease.

 

 

Salmon for Your Heart

Diets high in omega-3 fatty acids protect against heart disease. A study from Diabetes & Metabolism found that omega-3s keep the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline from peaking.

 

 

Lentils for Hair Growth

“They’re an ideal source of iron, which is so important for full, lustrous locks!” exclaims Pasquella. “Iron helps bring oxygen to the hair follicles, leading to growth and fullness. This is especially key if you have thin hair.”

 

 

Ginger, Turmeric, Cocoa, Cayenne, and Cinnamon for Your Blood

These spices have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects on the body, says Paula Simpson, BASc, RNCP. They also help balance blood sugar and can be easily incorporated into beverages or even food.

 

 

Banana for Your Libido

Loaded with B vitamins, the well-hung fruit helps boost testosterone. According to Lynn Nezin, co-author of Great Food, Great Sex, low testosterone levels can make for a sluggish sex drive in men and women.
