We receive a lot of requests for additional information on the foods that help with a healthy lifestyle. We have put together 5 power foods that help maintain a healthy lifestyle for those looking to go more natural with their diet and health. These foods in this article include avocados, wild Alaskan salmon, cherry juice, extra virgin olive oil and Kelp. In this post I’ll provide some great information on each of the foods. Kelp: This food includes fucoidan, which is a carbohydrate and a powerful compound. Avocados: This oval fruit includes carotenoids, polyhydroxylated fatty alcohols, and omega-3 fatty acids. This great thing about avocados is all of these ingredients work synergistically together. Wild Alaskan salmon: Did you know this river going fish is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. These are compounds are great for not only taste but also powerful antioxidants. Cherry juice is one of nature's most powerful source of ORAC units. In fact, just 3 oz. of cherry juice delivers over 13,000 ORAC units. According to nutritionist’s a person should each 3,000 – 5,000 ORAC units per day. So this serving amount is excellent for those wanting a good portion of ORAC. Olive oil contains alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a type of omega-3 that is a potent antioxidant. Olive oil is great for using in tossed into salad dressings or drizzled over food.
