What is it that people say often about food? You are what you eat? Many studies have proved that saying to be extremely true, especially in terms of being healthy or not. So, what exactly are the types of food that are richest in nutrients?
1- Nori or what is more commonly known as seaweed is one of foods that are so rich in nutrient that it is even richer than most vegetables of the land. It is rich with many nutrients and minerals and is especially high in iodine needed for your thyroid gland.
2- Shellfish is another sea blessing rich in nutrients. It contains Vitamin C, B-Vitamins, Potassium, Selenium and Iron. B vitamins especially are found in shellfish in high quantities.
3- Salmon is another richest in nutrients food and is also brought from the sea (islands’ dwellers are certainly lucky!). It is the food that contains the highest amount of omega 3 fatty acids ever. It is also high in protein, Magnesium, Potassium, Selenium and all the B-vitamins.
4- You often hear doctors telling people to avoid red meat. However this is not the case with liver. It is rich in B vitamins Niacin, Folate, Iron, Phosphorus, Zinc and Selenium.
5- If we are to rate blueberries according to its contents of nutrients and minerals, then it is definitely worthy of the crown. And it is not just the nutrients. Blueberries are also rich with antioxidants and they improve your metabolism and help you fight cancer.
6- Another seafood (though you can get it from a can) that gives you loads of nutrients is sardines. Besides the rarely-found-but-highly-needed omega 3 fatty acids, they are rich in almost every type of nutrient there is.
