12 Foods That Fight Disease

Looking to combat disease?

Want to improve your health?… Feel better?…Live longer?

Whatever the case, what you put into your body is going to HUGELY influence these things.

Eating right is a must if you want to stay disease free, so it pays to know the best disease fighting foods.

Here are the top 12 foods that made my list:

1. Spinach 

You can’t get more nutrient dense than spinach.  It's loaded with iron, calcium, vitamin A, C, and E. A great cancer fighter, this green can’t be beat. Perfect for salads, have one serving a day.

2. Kale 

Right next to spinach you have kale. Well-known for its detoxification benefits, kale will help reduce toxic waste that could lead to disease.

3. Blueberries 

This brain-boosting berry offers terrific antioxidants that will help prevent Alzheimer’s disease while keeping your brain sharp.

4. Cranberries

Want to fend off a urinary tract infection? Cranberries should be your go-to.

This berry isn’t as sweet as others, but is just as healthy as it can also help improve blood cholesterol levels and ward off stroke.

5. Alfalfa Sprouts

Rich in phytochemicals, this often overlooked green vegetable is great for reducing cancer and lowering your cholesterol level. Add some to your next sandwich or pita.

6. Apples 

One of the most commonly eaten fruits, apples earn top marks for stabilizing blood glucose levels and reducing the risk of diabetes. And, they too can lower cholesterol, fending off heart disease.

7. Avocados

A powerful dose of vitamin E is what you’ll get when you snack on an avocado. This is going to fight off free radical damage and lower inflammation in the body. Slice some up and put it over your next salad.

8. Flaxseeds

Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, flaxseeds are great for giving your heart health a boost and promoting proper cholesterol levels. Try sprinkling some on your next bowl of oatmeal.

9. Grapefruits

This vitamin C packed fruit will boost your immune system, ensuring you can fend off any virus or bacteria invading your body. Plus, it’s lower in sugar content so great for keeping diabetes at bay. Serve some in your next fruit salad.

10. Papayas

If the only time you eat this fruit is when you’re on a tropical vacation, this has to change. Papayas are a great source of antioxidants that help fend off colon cancer and heart disease and also provide an excellent dose of vitamin C as well.

11. Walnuts

Another food rich in omega-3’s, walnuts can help boost brain health and lower your risk factor for depression. They taste great sprinkled over a salad or with some oatmeal and cinnamon.

12. Oats

Speaking of oatmeal, this brings us to our next disease-fighting food. Oats are rich in soluble fiber, which will help lower cholesterol levels and reduce your risk factor for heart disease.

Serve some cooked with some fresh berries sprinkled on top.
