Superfoods we should be eating

New York City Board Certified Osteopathic Physician, Dr. Christopher Calapai, provides us with information on some plant based foods that have garnered the “superfood” label. He tells us why we should incorporate them into our diet.

Blackberries are loaded with vitamin C, as well as vitamins A, E, K, and B vitamins, antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin which sift free radicals and reactivate oxygen species.

Blueberries are a top superfood of the fruit world, containing iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and vitamin K. Blueberries help and maintain bone health.

Red cabbage contains disease-fighting properties known as polyphenols, which offer antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits. It also is a great source of dietary fiber and a rich source of several vitamins.

Plums are rich in fiber and help to ease digestion, as well as they are a great source of vitamin A.

Açaí Berries are loaded with antioxidants, as well as being rich in fiber, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins A, B, C and E, mineral salts (calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium) among others.

Finally, another superfood, figs are rich in natural health benefiting phytonutrients, antioxidants and vitamins. Dried figs are a great concentrated source of minerals and vitamins.
