What are Super Foods (and should I care)?

“Superfoods” have become all the rage in recent years. When a food is designated a “superfood” it becomes a hot new trend in diet, health, wellness, and nutrition focused lifestyles. Each superfood is loaded with beneficial vitamins and nutrients which go above and beyond the average food source. Regularly consuming these “superfoods” is supposed to enhance one’s nutrition levels and give them better health.

Health and wellness guru Dr. Axe believes that food is medicine. On his website he explains that there is no set criteria which makes a food a superfood. However, superfoods can help bodies reach the daily requirements they need for vitamins and minerals. “In fact, these foods can help you achieve better health, prevent chronic disease, and improve the way you feel day in and day out,” Dr. Axe emphasizes, “and they’re some of the top anti-aging foods around.” Combining superfoods with a normal routine of exercise and otherwise balanced diet provides a tremendous benefit to health, as well as mental wellness.

Superfoods can help with a list of bodily functions like:

  • Fighting free radicals
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Providing antioxidants
  • Help fight aging
  • Lower blood sugar
  • Regulate cholesterol
  • Increase energy naturally
  • Enhance focus
  • Increase metabolism
  • Protect heart health
  • And much more

Why Men In Recovery Should Care About Superfoods

Addiction to drugs and alcohol is a detriment to health for men. Though a man may be physically active and even in good shape during the height of his addiction, the drugs and alcohol he is abusing are taking a toll on his overall health. Addiction can cause men to ignore their diet and nutrition, their physical wellness, and their mental wellness. Men face specific health issues that women do not like testicular cancer and prostate cancer. A nutritionally focused diet including superfoods helps men focus on their present and future health. Men should care about superfoods as part of their lifestyle of recovery creating sustainable changes for a sustainable recovery.
