Power Foods Can Bring Out Your Natural Beauty


Vitamins and vitamin rich power foods play a major part in bringing out your natural beauty.

Eating a wide variety of food ensures that your body will obtain all the vitamins and nutrients it needs to remain healthy.

Below I have listed the power foods in alphabetical order for easy reference.

Each power food contains different amounts of vitamins and nutrients and each power food plays a different role in your overall health.

Whilst some power foods help to reduce weight and cholesterol levels others can even help prevent heart disease.

The foods listed below are known as power foods because they contain extremely high amounts of the vitamins and nutrients your body needs.

Power foods also contain powerful anti-oxidants that help prevent some diseases.


Power Foods List

Acai Berry

Acai Berry

The Acai berry contains large amounts of protein and fiber, and also have omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids. The Acai berry protects the heart from damage, and it may be able to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood, providing possible protection from heart attacks, strokes and other common cardiovascular complications.

This No 1 superfood promotes greater stamina, improved digestion, sharper mental focus, better sleep, improved sex drive, stronger immune system, fights cancer cells, attacks premature aging and promotes younger and healthier looking skin.

Apple Apple image

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.  That’s because a medium-sized apple only contains about 60 calories and virtually no fat.  With 2.7 grams of fiber, this makes them one of the best sources of fiber when eaten with the skin on.  Apples are also rich in antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium.

Banana Banana image

Unzip a banana and you will find they are bursting with nutrients.  Packed with B vitamins, vitamin C (15% RDA), Potassium (11% RDA), essential amino acids, carbohydrate and fiber (16% RDA) they only contain 100 calories per medium-sized banana.  In addition, their high level of vitamin B6 can help alleviate pre-menstrual tension and stress.

Beans Beans image

Beans, beans, good for your heart!  Seriously though, all types of beans, peas and pulses are crammed with health benefits.  These include fiber, high quality protein, vitamins (including the B vitamins), iron, magnesium and zinc.  They also contain hardly any fat.  They help prevent and treat heart disease and cancer, improve blood glucose control and may even help treat diabetes.

Beer Beer image

Beer taken for medicinal purposes will reduce the risk of strokes, heart and vascular disease, the formation of cataracts and breast cancer cells.  The consumption of one or two beers a day increases levels of good cholesterol (HDL), beer also contains vitamin B6, which protects against the build-up of the amino acids, which cause heart disease.  Drinking beer also relaxes the body and reduces stress, promotes blood vessel dilation and sleep.  It is both fat and cholesterol free.  Beer also contains Polyphenols, powerful antioxidants that have a rapid effect on the growth of breast cancer cells.

Bread Bread image

Rich in dietary fiber and high in complex carbohydrates, wholemeal bread will help you feel fuller for longer and keep your digestive system in good working order.  It also contains vitamins including the B vitamins and vitamin E and minerals.  Although different types of loaves vary on average one generous slice contains approximately 77 calories with only 0.9 grams of fat.

Chocolate Chocolate image

Chocoholics Rejoice!  Dark chocolate (not milk) is good for your heart.  Flavanols, found in cocoa beans, relax blood vessels, stop cholesterol gathering in blood vessels, reduce the risk of blood clots and slow down the immune responses that lead to clogged arteries.  Eating dark chocolate can help you maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.  Dark chocolate is also an antioxidant.  It contains over 300 chemicals, some of which are stimulants whilst others can alleviate pain and give you a sense of well-being.  Research shows dark chocolate has active pharmacological substances and can have the same effect on your brain as marijuana.  Unfortunately, chocolate is loaded with calories so 2-3 squares a day is enough to gain the health benefits.

Cranberries Cranberries image

Nature’s Own antibiotic.  Cranberries are a powerhouse in nutrition.  Drinking the juice can fight urinary tract infections because the juice contains acids that are not broken down by the digestive system, so altering the acidity level of urine.  High levels of vitamin C (13.5mg/100g fruit), flavonoids and quercetin make cranberries a powerful antioxidant, which can help combat cancer.  This powerful antioxidant can also fight heart disease by increasing the inside diameter of blood vessels, inhibit blood clotting, stop the build up of plaques inside the blood vessel walls and reduce clogging of the arteries or atherosclerosis.  Cranberries and cranberry juice prevent bacterial infections such as Staphylococcus aureus (which causes sore throats), E. coli and Salmonella enteritis.  Drinking cranberry juice reduces the risk of gum disease by preventing the plaque forming bacteria from sticking to your teeth.  The juice can also fight some stomach ulcers.  Cranberry juice also has anti-fungal properties and can inhibit the growth of fungi that causes skin infections such as athlete’s foot or dermatitis.

Eggs Eggs image

Packed with nutrients, each egg contains approximately 80 calories, 6 grams of high quality protein (10% RDA), vitamins A, B12 and D and iron.  Although eggs do contain fat it is a less saturated fat and only contributes, 2-4% of our dietary needs which makes eggs high in quality protein and moderately low in fat.

Nuts Nuts image

In their natural state, nuts have an equal amount of protein and fat to meat so they make a good meat replacement.  They also contain vitamin E, folate, phosphorus, potassium, copper and magnesium.  In fact, peanuts contain the same heart-healthy antioxidants as red wine.  Although high in fat, it is mostly monounsaturated or polyunsaturated, which can help reduce the overall bad cholesterol in your blood.  Just be aware that 30 grams of mixed nuts contain 180 calories and 16 grams of fat.  Use wisely and you will reap the rewards.

Potatoes Potatoes image

One medium sized potato contains approximately 100 calories and is fat, cholesterol and sodium free.  It also provides complex slow release carbohydrates, vitamin C, potassium and fiber.  One medium potato contains almost half of our recommended daily allowance of the very potent antioxidant, vitamin C.  However if you deep-fry the same potato as chips it transforms into 450 calories and 22 grams of fat.  Although potatoes are the most versatile of all the vegetables, this is where many people make mistakes by adding calories while cooking.

Tea Tea image

Tea can be made from a wide variety of herbs but the regular tea most commonly used comes from the tea plant – Camellia sinensis.  All three types of tea Green, Black and Oolong come from the same plant using different processes.  Tea has many health benefits, the Polyphenols it contains are antioxidants that protect against cancer and cardiovascular diseases.  Polyphenols have a strong flavor, green tea contains twice as many as black tea and this is why green tea is more beneficial for your health.  Polyphenols can also help to fight bacteria and infections.

Tomatoes Tomatoes image

Tomatoes are a rich source of lycopene, one of the most potent of all the antioxidants and no other food can match them.  Tomato puree is the highest source because it is concentrated.  Tomatoes contain a variety of nutrients and vitamins, just one serving of tomatoes will supply 40% RDA of Vitamin C.


Tuna Tuna image

Tuna, fresh not out of a tin, is an oily fish and contains high quality protein making it a nutritious alternative to red meat.  It is also high in fat-soluble vitamins A and E, selenium and omega-3 fatty acids.  Omega-3 fish oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids (EPA + DHA) which may play an important role in regulating blood pressure, cholesterol and a healthy circulation.


Yoghurt Yoghurt

Natural yogurt is a thriving mass of cultures that can actually help you lose weight.  As a bi-product of milk, yoghurt is rich in calcium and as such, it will help reduce weight gain.  Small changes in the calcium levels of fat cells trigger signals within the cells that organize the making or burning of fat, therefore natural yoghurt is one of the valuable fat burning foods.  Avoid ready-made fruit yoghurts that contain added sugar or sweetened fruit.  Add your own favorite topping of fresh raspberries, cranberries, bananas or blueberries but do not add sugar, sugar encourages the growth of unwanted yeasts.

Did you know? Light Bulb image

Flavonols are powerful antioxidants that help fight disease.  They neutralize the harmful oxygen molecules that circulate our bodies, these harmful molecules damage tissues and accelerate the aging process.  Onions, tea and dark chocolate are naturally rich in Flavonols as are tomato skins but at a lesser level.
