To give you a sound base idea and send you running for the nearest super market, I’ve listed seven top super foods that really will make you healthier and happier while building relationships.

1. Cutting calories with Spinach
According to new research from biochemists at Lunds University in Sweden, Eating a spinach salad with your lunch you will automatically eat less food for the remaining part of your day. They discovered that “thylakoids” in spinach – tiny membranes in the leaves coat theft in your food, making it harder to digest. As a direct result the food stays in your intestinal tract longer, thereby making you feel full several hours after you’ve finished eating. For those who don’t care for spinach, no worries; one day these researchers while hard at work today, will succeed at a thylakoid supplement that you’ll be able to enjoy at every meal.

3. Want to see Better? Try Red Wine
In France it s normal to have Red Wine everyday if you so desire, as it is a part of the culture, but millions of Americans drink red wine to protect their heart.

Just let me say this, if you are such a person, scientists say wine a grape-derived drink may be protecting your eyes, too. According to a five year study at Reykjavik Eye Study in Iceland, drinking at least two glasses of re wine per month to three glasses per day can slash your risk of developing cataracts by 50 percent, compared to non drinkers, heavy drinkers and beer drinkers.

Proud boosting of no trans fat, this virtually tasteless oil is rich in vitamin E, Omega 3 fatty acids and monounsaturated fats – all shown to help reduce the levels of LDL “bad” cholesterol.

5. Keeping young with Vegetable Soup

Would you believe during a study, the first ever of its kind, researchers at the University of Florida have proved it. When using an extract of the acai berry in a lab test, the team found that the fruit may bigger up to 86 percent of human leukemia cells to self-destruct. The berries taste like a cross between cherries with just a tiny hint of chocolate. They can be found in health – food stores in juices smoothies’ extracts or supplements.

There you have it! My top 7 Super Foods that make you think, before you eat for healthier more romantic relations.

While each of these foods may appear to be simple and non-important, they are each very powerful in their own right. Each of these foods is essential in maintaining good health, and of course energy to burn in a manner that you choose.

If you’re still not convinced ask yourself these questions:

1. Are you efficient enough in your daily activities?
2. Do you overcome stress easily?
3. Can you work all day and still have enough energy left to enjoy the evening?
4. Do you collapse in front of the TV?

These are all questions that are intimately related to your state of health yet they are seldom if ever discuss during medical examinations. Remember Doctor’s and specialists are trained to treat only the diseased part of your body.

They do not take the holistic view. Alertness, endurance, energy, and resistance to daily stresses and the ability to relax easily are all symptoms of good health, so think before you eat.
