8 Best Superfoods for Men

There is a reason why men’s health supplements have sprung up lately and that is due
to the fact that not a lot of men have a well-balanced diet. They only rely on these
supplements to give their bodies the nutrients that they need to somehow have a
healthy life.

Now, I wouldn’t argue about that as there are supplements that provide you with what
your body needs. But, it is still best that you eat the right foods as supplements are just
that- supplements.

So today, I am going to be talking about the superfoods that men should eat on a
consistent basis.

1. Turkey Breast

If you eat a lot of turkey during thanksgiving, you are actually doing your body a service.
Turkey, in general, contains a lot of protein and it is generally high in protein and has
less fat than chicken.

That being said, you do not have to roast an entire bird if you want to eat turkey. You
can easily find turkey breast packed in the supermarket as that contains few calories but
more protein.

2. Olive Oil

A great source of monounsaturated fat, olive oil is great not only for cooking your foods
but you can also add them to your carbs as well.
According to a study that was published by the journal ‘Nature’, olive oil can help reduce
the risk of heart disease. It also contains potent anti-inflammatory agents that can help
prevent swelling and reduce the pain that you feel in your body.

3. Quinoa

You might probably know how to pronounce it already but there is a reason why this
superfood is gaining in popularity. Quinoa is loaded with fiber and B-vitamins and it is a
great alternative to whole grains due to the fact that it has far lesser calorie content than
your regular carbs.

4. Green Tea

Green tea gives a lot of health benefits. It helps prevent most illnesses from happening,
it can help prevent weight loss to cancer patients, and it is also known to help reduce or
slow down the development of Alzheimer’s disease as well.

Make drinking some green tea a habit. Consume it at least 4 times a week to enjoy its
full benefits.

5. Milk

Truth be told, your body actually loves milk. So much so that when you skip some dairy,
your body is going to be angry at you as it retains fat cells and some calcium in your
body as a result of non-consumption.

A glass of milk per day should suffice. It contains calcium that will help strengthen your
bones, protein to help build muscle, and it also has some healthy fats to improve your
overall health.

6. Spinach

Have you seen the cartoon show, Popeye? The titular protagonist chows down a can of
spinach to make him get stronger. Well, there is some truth to that.

Spinach is full of nutrients that can help provide sustainable energy to your body. In
addition, it is a good source of beta-carotene which is known to improve overall health
and eyesight.

7. Broccoli

You might hate this vegetable as a kid, but as a grown-up man, you definitely have to
eat it. Broccoli is rich in iron which can help promote good energy levels that will help
you reach the end of the day with some energy left to spare.

Furthermore, it also has fiber, vitamin C, and calcium which are nutrients that will help
promote general health.

8. Sweet Potatoes

Bodybuilders’ carb of choice, sweet potatoes contain a hefty dose of iron, beta-
carotene, and vitamins C and E for that youthful glow.

All of the aforementioned nutrients work in unison to help prevent cellular damage done
to your body as a result of your daily activities and food intake.
