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.
