Everyday Foods that are SuperFoods - Cancer Prevention , Beneficial Bacteria and Antioxidants

Updated on July 2, 2009

You may think they are just regular foods but they are in fact super foods. Here is a list of some super foods that you may eat everyday.


Broccoli has to one of the most popular super foods , Many studies have shown that people who eat plenty of broccoli prevent the development of tumors by 60% and for tumors that did develop it reduced there size by 75 %.

Broccoli also contains more polyphenols than any other common dinner table vegetable. Polyphenols have antioxidant properties and may help in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. Broccoli also contains indoles, which are very potent estrogen blockers. 

Broccoli has general super food abilities such as boosting the immune system, building stronger bones, fighting birth defects and helps to fight off degenerative eye diseases.   Many people eat broccoli sprouts as they have about 100 times more of the cancer fighting properties as adult broccoli has. Its easy to grow broccoli sprouts at home in a small pot I actually do it myself. 

Wild Salmon

 With the every increasing market or farm fish we’ve forgotten what its like to eat that wild stuff. The farmed salmon we eat are fed on corn and grain and therefore grow up with an inferior health benefits.

 Salmon oil can reduce the risk of coronary artery disease, controls hypertension, controls inflammation, and prevents cancer and degenerative eye disease. Salmon living off a natural diet will produce much better quality oil.


Walnuts another popular super food with benefits including fewer heart attacks, and many studies has shown the relationship between eating walnuts and heart attack occurrences. Walnut is one of the richest plant sources of omega 3 fatty acids.

The walnut is also high in plant sterols which will reduce your cholesterol, and they have the ability to keep your blood vessels nice and smooth to ensure good blood flow and thus reducing heart attacks. This nut also has the highest antioxidant properties and is also very high in magnesium and copper.   


This bluest of berries contains the highest number of antioxidants than any other fruit or vegetable. One serving contains as much antioxidants as five servings of carrots, apples, broccoli’s or squashes. The blueberry will help prevent cancer, cardiovascular disease, and degenerative eye disease.

Blueberries are also known to help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. Best way to buy them is fresh or frozen in bulk.  


Yoghurt The last super food on this hub is yoghurt or yogurt whichever you prefer. The best type of yogurt to buy is nice plain organic yoghurt with no added sweeteners or preservatives as this type of yoghurt will contain the beneficial bacteria (probiotics) and this is what makes yoghurt a powerful super food.

The beneficial bacteria found in yoghurt work at the gastrointestinal level and deal with problems associated with digestion and help to reduce the number of bad bacteria in your stomach. 

Yoghurt is said to help in fighting caner, allergies, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowl syndrome, ulcers and diarrhea. When eating yoghurt it’s also important to eat prebiotcis too as this is the stuff the probiotics live on foods with prebiotcs include broccoli, spinach, flax seeds.

There are many more I make another hub later on about the rest of them.
