Superfoods for Healthy Joints

Natural joint health supplements like krill oil and glucosamine have well documented benefits for supporting healthy joints, and pharmaceutical / prescription drugs can be obtained from your doctor to help with arthritis and joint pain. However, your lifestyle and the food you eat  can also have a significant effect on joint health. Try these superfoods for arthritis and maintaining joint health.

CAMU CAMU

A fine powder derived from an Amazonian fruit, Camu Camu has impressive antioxidant properties and can be a great anti-inflammatory. Anti-inflammatories cab be beneficial for arthritis sufferers, as the joint pain felt is often the result of swelling and  inflammation around the joint. Reducing inflammation, therefore, often means reducing pain. Further, Camu Camu is rich in vitamin C – vitamin C is critical for a number of bodily functions including production of collagen. Collagen is required for growing, healing and repairing tissue and cartilage.

CHIA SEEDS

Chia Seeds are rich in fibre, protein and – importantly – omega-3 fatty acids. Ensuring you have sufficient intake of Omega-3s is important for joints and the link between omega-3 intake and joint health is documented. If you aren’t eating fatty fish such as salmon or tuna 3 times a week, you should be trying to increase your daily omega-3 intake by:
  1. taking a Krill Oil tablet daily or
  2. including vegetable sources of omega-3 like chia seeds into your diet. Need some inspiration on how  to eat more chia? Check out our Chia Seed recipes.

TURMERIC

You may be familiar with turmeric as a spice used in curries and stir fries. You may not realise that it is actually a superfood that contains a potent anti-inflammatory ingredient called curcumin. Adding enough turmeric to your meals each day to achieve the full anti-inflammatory effect might not be feasible, but there are an increasing number of juice bars around that offer turmeric in their products that can help you increase your turmeric / curcumin intake. Alternatively, try Osteo Flex – it contains clinically studied levels of curcumin so you can be sure you are getting sufficient dosage. It also contains additional joint care ingredients Krill Oil and Green Lipped Mussel.   ---------- This article was provided by our online partner Health365.

3 Superfoods For Weight Loss

Rest assured this isn't going to be one of those "One Weird Tip For Burning Belly Fat" articles that tries to get you to hand over personal details or provide credit card details. Whilst there are a number of purported 'superfoods' out there that claim to help burn more fat, the following list of real superfoods and their claims for weight loss are actually, you know, based in reality.  

Superfoods For Weight Loss

 

1. Chia Seeds

Chia seeds promote weight loss in a number of ways, but most importantly due to their high fibre and protein content. Increasing your fibre intake can help with weight loss in two ways. Firstly, because soluble fibre is digested quite slowly: it provides a sustained energy release so that your body is less likely to store it as fat. Secondly, insoluble fibre is not digested by the body, yet helps promote a feeling of fullness which can help limit serving size and reduce snacking. The fibre in chia seeds can also help maintain blood sugar levels - also important for weight loss.  

2. Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is a fat. Traditionally, when trying to lose weight, we have been told to avoid fat. This thinking is changing. Including healthy fats in our diet and letting our body become used to using those healthy fats as a fuel source is an increasingly important part of many modern weight loss ideologies. Coconut Oil in particular is an  interesting weight loss fat - it is full of medium chain triglycerides, or 'MCTs' (most foods contain long chain triglycerides - 'LCTs'). MCTs are digested differently to LCTs, and this seems to offer greater fat loss properties. One study on coconut oil's weight loss effect showed that participants using coconut oil lost more weight than other participants using olive oil. A further study showed that coconut oil may lead to increased burning of calories throughout the day - coconut oil appears to have increased metabolism. Look for a cold pressed, organic coconut oil like Super Coconut Oil to ensure maximum flavour, purity and potency.  

3. Soy Protein

It isn't sexy or glamorous, and it's been around for years, but soy protein can aid in weight loss in a number of ways. It can help you feel full, reducing snacking behaviour. It has a low glycemic index, which means it is broken down slowly by the body, making it less likely to be stored as fat. Further, it has a similar absorption rate to the more commonly used whey protein, yet without the common bloating side effect whey can often cause (definitely a frustrating thing when you are trying to trim down). Finally, soy is rich in a range of vitamins and minerals that support metabolism and exercise performance, resulting in increased weight loss. Whey protein does not have this same nutritional profile. ------ This article was provided by our online health partner Health365.

3 Superfoods For Men's Health

You may scoff at the term 'superfoods', but believe us when we say there are a small handful of real  'superfoods' that do exist. These are foods that contain a wide range of key nutrients, and contain them at levels far above those found in 'normal' food. This means these superfoods make it easier to get the nutritional support you need to get through your day. Some of these superfoods - when taken over time - may help support a range of benefits for men's health issues, from supporting libido and sperm count to prostate and heart health. Read on for our top 3 list of Superfoods for men's health.  

 3 Superfoods For Men's Health

 

1. Maca

Known as the "Peruvian ginseng", Maca has been traditionally used for thousands of years in Peru and across South America to support energy and - famously - to boost libido and fertility. Preliminary studies out of Peru suggest it may increase sperm count and sperm motility, although it should be noted that further research is required to consolidate these early findings. Fellas, try our recipe for Maca Guacamole, which contains Maca and other key nutrients for supporting men's energy and libido.  

2. Chia Seeds and/or Salmon

Whilst the two foods are very different, both chia seeds and salmon contain large concentrations of one very important nutrient for men's health: Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids have a variety of benefits, not the least of which is increased protection against heart disease, high blood pressure, cholesterol and stroke. Heart disease is the leading killer of men in Australia, and men are much more likely to develop heart disease than women. As such, men should be considering adjusting their diet to avoid these preventable diseases. Both salmon and chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which can help support a healthy heart. Furthermore, chia seeds are very high in dietary fibre, which can help with weight management and managing blood sugar levels. Guys, try our Chia-Crusted Salmon recipe. It combines both chia seeds and salmon for a super-sized serve of omega-3s to help protect your heart.  

3. Acai

Preliminary studies suggest that one way of increasing your sperm count is to decrease the number of free radicals in your body by increasing your antioxidant intake. Free radicals are unstable molecules that exist in our body that damage cells and can lead to inflammation, disease and reduced efficiency. Increasing your intake of antioxidants fights these molecules and increases overall health and - perhaps - sperm quality. Whilst most fruit and vegetables have some antioxidant content, Acai is one of the richest known sources of antioxidants on the planet. Gents, try our Acai Berry Breakfast Bowl recipe. It's packed with acai and other nutrients to protect your heart, brain, overall health and your little swimmers. ------ This article was brought to you by our online health partner Health365.

The SuperFoods Way with Mumafit

Share your blogging journey with us. When did it begin and why did you decide to start? 

I started my Mumafit blog about 2 years ago. I was pregnant with my third baby and my husband and I had decided to develop a pre and post natal fitness app (The Mumafit App). We both had degrees in fitness and had lots of experience either training pregnant women, or for me, having mastered the art of pre and post natal exercise through personal experience. I decided to blog to create greater exposure for the app initially, but then I realised how thirsty women were for quality information on wellbeing during and post pregnancy, and this spurred me on and eventually lead to my niche life and wellness coaching.  

Outside of creating beautiful content for your followers, what are you most passionate about in life?

  I am truly driven to live a life that is rich in experience, explores the depths of our souls, our connections with others and allows us each to live with our own style of emotional and physical freedom. As my children grow, my focus remains firmly on raising them in this manner. We love to get away as often as we can in our full size old bus converted into a motorhome so that we can leave the city behind us, connect with the ocean and spend more quality time as a family. What is your daily health, wellness and/or fitness routine Since having 3 children in 4 years, time is hard to find, so I only exercise formally 2 or 3 times a week with yoga and strength training. My life is full of incidental activity though as we love to get outside and walk the beach or the streets with the kids. I try hard to remember to hydrate properly every day and eat as healthily as we can. Food has become such an integral part of our wellbeing, keeping us from falling ill and providing us the energy to live a vital life with our kids. We are not saints though and enjoy indulging ourselves every now and then. When it comes to food and exercise, I don’t believe in extremes or allowing an obsession with wellbeing become just another stress in your life – so keeping things moderate and simple is key.

What’s your favourite way to utilise Super Foods to help you get through a busy day?

Mmm tough question as I’ve learnt to sneak them in at any opportunity. My breakfast is always loaded with superfoods, so that if the day gets away from me, I’ve already had a good start. Then it’s a toss up between smoothies and bliss balls. I’ll take either! For more info or to follow Muma Fit - click here.
