3 Super Foods Necessary For Our Health

For you to feel in a perfect shape on a daily basis, and to possess the energy you need to perform all daily activities, your body requires three things: -- iron, calcium and omega-3 fatty acids.3-super-foods-necessary-for-our-health

Actually, women need these nutrients more than men. The low levels of iron (it gets lost during the monthly period) may cause anemia, and consequently, a chronic fatigue.

On the other hand, taking large amounts of calcium -- especially in the 20’s years of life, when bones get their final form, contributes to reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Omega-3 fatty acids are another substance that women do not take in the recommended dosage, and are necessary as a structural component of brain cells.

Calcium -- Ideally, you should drink a cup of yogurt, a cup of milk and eat a piece of cheese on a daily basis to provide the recommended intake of calcium (700 mg).

Iron-- Provide the daily dose (14.8 mg) by eating cereals for breakfast, two figs and a handful of pumpkin seeds for snacks, a serving of grilled chicken breasts with rice for lunch and beef cutlet and kale for dinner.

Omega 3 fatty acids -- at least twice a week, have a serving of fatty fish instead of chicken or beef.
