Nutritional Superfoods are all fantastic for optimal wellness.  Here is my list of superfoods I love for keeping immunity firing as a health copywriter.

C’s Of Superfoods

Chard is abundant in some powerful antioxidants.  Packed with vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C and E.  Minerals include magnesium, manganese, potassium, iron and calcium.  Also a good source of fibre.

Cherries are full of antioxidants that fight cellular ageing. They also contain melatonin which helps balance mood, heart rhythms, and sleeping patterns. Cherries are also rich in fibre, vitamin C, beta-carotene, and several essential minerals.

Chia Seeds are a superfood staple of the ancient Mayans and Aztecs; They are the most abundant plant source of omega-3 and exceptionally high in fibre, antioxidants, and vitamins like phosphorus, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Chia seed protein also offers a complete protein with all essential amino acids.

Coconut Milk is different from coconut water. Coconut milk comes from the mature coconut and has a creamier, milky texture and flavour. It is an excellent source of potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and selenium and an excellent source of manganese. Coconut milk also has a right amount of healthy fats.

Coconut Water is the liquid from young coconuts. It is a natural alternative to electrolyte sports drinks with a slightly sweet refreshing flavour. Coconut water is rich in potassium, B vitamins, enzymes, and antioxidants.

Coconut Oil I love!  Here is what you need to know about coconut oil. 

Collard Greens work hard to lower cholesterol and improve heart health. They are exceptionally high in vitamin K, manganese, vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, and fibre. They are also a good source of iron.

Celery has a slightly salty flavour while remaining relatively low in sodium. It brings out the taste of other vegetables. Celery is also rich in vitamin K, fibre, vitamin A, vitamin C, and folate.
