Are There Super Fruits and Super Seeds to Add to your diet?

Super Fruits and Super Seeds: In the latest copy of Food Technology, the contributing editor identified nine super seeds and super fruits that are helpful for those who want to move toward a natural, minimally processed diet. These include: 1) Chia Seeds that are high in omega -3 fatty acids, calcium, photo nutrients, antioxidants, mineral and vitamins and can be used in a variety of ways including yogurt, trail mix, baking, and snacks; 2) Flax seeds that are a good source of protein, fiber, antioxidants and photoestrogens in the form of lignans and omega-3 fatty acids and according to research may help lower blood cholesterol; 3) Sunflower Seeds that provide monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, protein, fiber, vitamin E and photochemical; 4) Pumpkin Seeds that have protein, fiber, manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus; 5) Blueberries are packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals, fructose and antioxidants and may reduce blood pressure and arterial stiffness, and prevent or delay diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and aging; 6) Acai Berries that are anti-inflammatory and are a rich source of anthocyanin and have a fatty acid ratio similar to olive oil; 7) Tart Cherries are high in antioxidants and anthocyanins and facilitate sleep, and act as an anti-inflammatory in arthritis and sports recovery; 8) Avocados are useful in reducing bad cholesterol, and  9) Cranberries are beneficial for urinary tract health and glycemic responses.
