Eating well for a healthy life is a mantra everyone is familiar with, but some foods can help us achieve that goal easily. While ‘superfoods’ are often highly praised for being nutritionally rich and considered to be the dietary superheroes. The real deal is to follow a balanced diet and a healthy routine. Furthermore, opting for healthier options becomes easier as Liebherr’s innovative refrigeration and freezing solutions that make it easier than ever to perfectly store your food.
However, there are foods that are understandably more nutritious than others and must be included in your diet for a happy, healthy life.
Soybeans – The beans are rich in isoflavones, a type of phytoestrogen that is known to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-cancer, and antimicrobial properties.
Thus, they can help to regulate the inflammatory response of the body, slow down cellular ageing and fight microbes.
Carrots – Carrots are famously recommended for its high content of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene can be converted by our bodies into vitamin A, which functions in immune function, vision, reproduction, and cellular communication. Also, our bodies can’t produce vitamin A on their own, so it must be derived from our diet.
This pigment is also an antioxidant that can protect the cells in our bodies from the ageing damage caused by free radicals.
Hence, carrots are a prime example that can protect against age-related macular degeneration, the vision damage caused by old age.
Citrus fruits – Citrus fruits are the unsung heroes of a healthful diet which include several fruits that are now available worldwide, such as oranges, grapefruit, lemons, limes, clementines, mandarins, and tangerines.
They have a high content of vitamin C, which has antioxidant properties and is said to bring a wide array of health benefits, such as reducing inflammatory damage and fending off infections.
The fruits are abundant in other macronutrients as well.
Citrus fruits contain even more organic compounds that have protective effects against cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and neuro degenerative diseases. They are even known to prevent or delay chronic diseases caused by obesity. Liebherr’s BioFresh keeps your fruits fresh for long and in turn, keeps you healthy.
