Health Conscious Foods
In today's fast-paced, fast-food culture, it's all too
easy to starve your body of the nutrition it requires.
Many foods such as spinach and brown rice contain nutrients
that are essential to the body. But we all know it's
easier to grab a burger and fries than sit down and
have a spinach salad or stir-fry with rice.
There are many vegetables, fruits, grains and herbs
that can provide our bodies with balanced nutrition,
if we only take a moment from our busy schedules to
benefit from their nutritive values. Foods that support
the body's nutritional needs also maximize the body's
ability to release energy and burn fat.
Some of these fat-burning, energy-releasing benefits
can be acquired by taking can be herbal supplements.
Spirulina, soy, barley grass, licorice root, alfalfa,
echinacea purpurea and chlorella are perfect examples
of herbal supplements that are rich in vitamins,
minerals and antioxidants.
Not only are these herbs a great nutritional source,
they also play an important role with many of the body's
systems. For example, echinacea purpurea stimulates the
immune system and helps the body fight against
infection, and wheat grass is great for cleansing and
purifying the blood and stimulating the immune system.
For people who are always on the go, it can be
difficult to supply your body with all the nourishment
it needs. Supplementing your diet with foods and herbal
supplements that are rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidant
and nutrients are a start to healthy living.
