Superfoods for a Healthy Body

Stress and unpredictable weather are some of the things that lower one’s immune system. But fortunately, there are ways to combat the depletion of our immune system and help us feel and be one step closer to a healthier body.

When functioning adequately, our immune system helps us fight off infection and sicknesses.

Things that seem normal to some such as choosing to eat unhealthy food we usually call comfort food, that offers little to no nutrients, or vices such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, make an enormous difference on learning the current state of our immune system.

Eating a low carbohydrate diet such as beans or mangos for a first meal or breakfast makes you carb-tolerant at the second meal. The regular consumption of these low carbohydrate foods affects your body’s subsequent meal’s glycemic response is called Second-Meal Effect, a concept first announced by the developer of the low-glycemic index diet, Dr. David J. Jenkins of the University of Toronto. Because the low-glycemic diet is slower in calorie absorption, feeling of hunger becomes delayed, which makes you eat a lesser amount of food.

Superfoods are nutrient-rich foods that are beneficial for your health. They offer protection and help you have the capacity to defend your body. Moreover, they can strengthen our body’s protective shield called biofilm and give us the healthiest microbiome that promotes weight loss and lessens food’s glycemic effect.
