Top Foods with Impressive Healing Powers
Honey is known for antimicrobial activity.


There are many ways you can eat more healthily. Many people looking to do this focus on altering their entire diet, but there are other, smaller ways to take not of. Several foods have unusual health benefits that many people don’t even realize. By adding these foods into your diet, you can vastly boost your health, especially in the long run. For a list of the top foods with impressive healing powers, read below.

Ginger

Ginger has been used as a cooking spice for many centuries. It makes a tasty addition to many dishes, but it has also been found to have many impressive medicinal qualities. Many professionals in the medical field recognize it as a natural nausea reducer that prevents vomiting. Another benefit of ginger is that it can help you stay awake and energized without the jittery effects of most caffeine-based products, such as coffee or energy drinks. You can get a good intake of ginger in tea, extracts, capsules, or oil or by eating ginger root straight.

Kelp

This algae seaweed is surprisingly rich in nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iodine. Low thyroid levels can cause you to struggle with sluggishness, weight gain, and moodiness, but each of the aforementioned nutrients—especially iodine—are helpful for combating these effects. A reasonable intake of kelp can restore your energy levels and improve brain function.



Honey

One of the top foods with impressive healing powers is honey. Honey is a delicious product that pairs with many other foods. You’ll get the most health benefits from raw honey. Raw honey is natural, unfiltered, and filled with antioxidants, which can prevent cancer and heart disease. It also contains hydrogen peroxide, a natural antibacterial that prevents serious infections. It can also strengthen your immune system and help you get over viruses. Add a spoonful to your tea to stave off illnesses, especially during the winter (See also NCBI: Honey: its medicinal property and antibacterial activity).

Mushrooms

One more food that will benefit your health is certain types of mushrooms. Some of the common varieties are white button, portabella, and cremini, but shiitake mushrooms have some of the most benefits. They can boost your HDL (high-density lipoproteins), also known as good cholesterol, which picks up the bad cholesterol that clogs arteries and takes it back to your liver. These mushrooms are also believed to boost your immune system through the compound lentinan, which fights cancer by slowing the growth of tumors.
