The Chinese portal Sohu published ten of the most beneficial foods for human health, among which were both grains and berries.
Quinoa comes first. This grain crop contains a lot of protein, amino acids, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium. Quinoa also contains extremely valuable Omega-3 fatty acids, due to which the cardiovascular system is strengthened, RIA Novosti reported.
Blueberries are on the second line. It is no secret that it contains vitamins A, I and E, antioxidants that improve memory and protect brain cells. The disadvantage of blueberries is the rather high content of sugars in the berry.
The author of the publication put broccoli, which is rich in minerals, vitamin C, carotene, phosphorus, iron, potassium and manganese, in the third place. Broccoli is suitable for neutralizing carcinogens in the body, as it contains the enzyme sulphoraphane.
At the same time, broccoli is an excellent source of fiber. It significantly reduces the absorption of glucose in the gastrointestinal tract, and then lowers blood glucose level, which is beneficial for people with diabetes, the material says.
Other super-foods included salmon, sea buckthorn, spinach, pistachios, avocado, oats and strawberries.
