We have all heard about superfoods: foods that are loaded with nutrients and prevent all sorts of illnesses, from the common cold to cancer and heart disease. They reduce the risk of many health problems, improve our lives and keep our bodies and minds healthy.

Here is a list of the 23 top superfoods that should be a part of your diet.

1. Oily fish

Oily fish such as salmon, trout, mackerel and sardines are not only delicious, but also extremely healthy superfoods that should be included in your diet at least two times a week. These oily fish are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, a type of fat that greatly contributes to brain development in babies and lowers the risk of heart disease.

As a matter of fact, doctors and dietitians agree that foods that contain high levels of Omega 3 fatty acids will keep your heart healthy and significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Eating oily fish on a regular basis maintains a healthy blood pressure level, and improves blood lipids, both of which have a positive impact on your cardiovascular system.

Your heart will be thankful for all the Omega 3 fatty acids, and your wallet won’t suffer. Sardines and mackerel are cheap and easy to prepare – we recommend consuming these nutritious superfoods with toast and a side salad for the best results.
