Top 4 Superfoods That Will Keep Your Body & Mind Healthy

The onset of the pandemic has made everyone more aware of their own well-being, and health has become the top priority for the majority of people. In the process, more emphasis is being placed on the importance of healthy eating – that is, consuming a balanced diet of carbohydrates, proteins, water, vitamins, and a portion of fat – and its role in overall physical and mental health. 

Consuming the right food – in terms of both type and quantity – not only aids in reaching and maintaining a healthy weight but also protects you from a variety of harmful illnesses.

Studies show that adopting a healthy diet and increasing physical activity can reduce the risk of premature heart disease which is a leading cause of death worldwide by up to 80%.

High blood pressure, which is becoming more of a problem in cities and towns, can lead to heart attacks, heart failure, and strokes. The foods consumed can help lower and maintain blood pressure at optimal levels, thereby keeping the heart-healthy. A healthy diet should include plenty of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fat-free or low-fat products, and high-fiber foods, all of which help to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. Drinks and foods containing added sugar should also be avoided. Limiting your salt intake can also help lower your blood pressure.
