As you grow older, it becomes more and more important to choose healthy food options. Our bodies are constantly regenerating, and we need to supply our new cell growth with ingredients that will promote vitality, youth, and vibrancy. At Viance, we’ve developed superfood-packed products that make it convenient for you to give your body the essential nutrients it needs to produce healthy and vibrant new cell growth.

With that in mind here are the Top 8 Super Foods That You Should Be Eating.

1. Almonds: Organic almonds are best in their rawest form. Commercially heated nuts and almonds on the other hand can be damaged through the heating and processing stages. Organic , non-heated almonds are an amazing source of protein and have plant components that work to promote overall cardiovascular health. Almonds are a great source of iron, calcium, potassium, vitamin E and fiber, which makes them a great snack and an amazing superfood.

2. Wild salmon: Wild salmon contains high levels of omega-3 fats, antioxidants and some of the highest quality protein that you will find in meat. Wild salmon is recommended as a superfood because of its low fat content and high-protein content. But beware! Don’t buy farmed salmon, which can contain harmful contaminants and toxins. Wild salmon is the best bet!

3. Avocado: Avocado has over 20 essential nutrients, including twice the amount of potassium you might find in a banana, fiber, vitamin E, folic acids and good fats. Because avocados do tend to be extra fatty, eat them in moderation. They’re great in a fresh Kale salad with brocolli, almonds, strawberries, and feta cheese.

4.Kale: Kale is extremely inexpensive and is great for sources of vitamin A, B, C. Kale is also exploding with iron, calcium and Lutein. Substituting Kale in a salad or making kale chips is a great way that you can introduce kale into your diet in an enjoyable manner. Check out this great Kale Chip recipe.

6. Lentils: lentils are another snack that you can eat which are a great source of protein and fiber. Lentils also have resistant starch which helps us to boost our metabolism and burn fat just like brown rice.

7. Almond milk: Almond milk is high in the antioxidant vitamin E. Unlike cows milk, almond milk contains no cholesterol and no saturated fats. Also unlike cows milk, almond milk contains natural vitamins and minerals and does not need to be fortified with synthetic vitamins found in cows milk.

8. Pumpkin: We may only eat pumpkin once a year with our Thanksgiving pie, but cooking and serving pumpkin on a regular basis can be great for your overall health. Pumpkin is filled with valuable boosters to help us maintain our vision, heart health, healthy skin and healthy bones. Pumpkin contains antioxidants and potassium as well as a variety of other nutrients that can benefit us in our diet.
