    this is a great list, my personal problem with garlic requires avoiding it, however in the article area of mushrooms, i add maitake, reishi and shiitake mushroom extracts for the antiviral and other benefits, for over 15 years i have had very few viral problems, although i have always gotten my annual flu and periodic pneumonia vaccines as well, and i will continue as in my childhood polio vaccinations, to use shingles vaccine and any new trusted and tested antiviral methods... - 1/7/2011 5:51:38 AM
  • I eat all of these things regularly! That's great news! - 11/15/2010 3:21:29 PM

  • Great information..Have to save this one.. - 8/29/2009 8:36:03 AM
    I really liked this article and found it very informative, but; there are so many articles like this out there that say what foods to eat that are the best but there are two factors that are always left out when they list the items, amt and how often. I have been on a roller coaster ride with my weight all my life and know the things i'm suppose to eat but not how much or how often. Some of these foods, tomatoes for one, you arent suppose to eat alot continually because of the acidity in it. I wish someone would right an article for people like me who need to everything in front of them so they know what to do. - 8/14/2009 5:24:34 AM
  • I am glad to hear broccoli is a super food. Now I can push even more of it on my family! It is my favorite veg! - 8/13/2009 1:36:08 PM
  • I already had this saved to my favorites, but just re-read it anyway! Every parent in the US should have to read this excellent article. Maybe before they even have children!!! - 8/12/2009 8:56:33 PM
    Love all of these and eat them daily
    Thank you! - 5/13/2009 9:52:49 AM
  • (1) Only cold water fish that has fed on algae (or other plants high in omega-3s) is beneficial. Flax seed meal is a much more sustainable choice, an it does not have heavy metal contamination problems.
    (2) The lypcopene in cooked tomatoes is more readily available.
    (5) Use oat groats instead of rice and other grains. Use a microwave rice cooker to quickly cook oats.
    (6) Don't reuse your tea bag as the benefits of green tea are highest with the first seeping. Japanese roasted rice green tea (a la Numi Organic) is healthier than other versions of green tea.
    (7) Kefir is better than yogurt as its bacteria are persistent in the intestines. Cow's milk kefir is most commonly available, but goat's milk and young coconut water kefirs are also available. (You can make your own kefir with kefir starter from just about any liquid.) Kefir is a great smoothie base - especially if you add your own fruit, flax seed meal, and xylitol (for dental and sinus health).
    (8) Almonds and walnuts (omega-3) are ok, but I don't consider them to be super-foods.
    (10) The folic acid in spinach can be a real problem; dinosaur kale (lacinato) is a much better choice. - 2/11/2009 6:35:07 AM
  • A few years back I would never touch broccolli, did not eat oatmeal. And Now they are staples in our home. Love Love Love them. Thanks for the extra information. :0) - 2/7/2009 3:12:48 PM
  • I'm so glad I stumbled upon this article! I already eat most of those things, but I saved it to my favorites anyway. I love learning about superfoods! - 11/11/2008 7:31:08 PM

    Maybe it's the californian in me, but what comes to mind to also add to this list are things like wheatgrass, acai and tofu. Never tried mangosteen, but I'm willing to give it a try ;) - 8/13/2008 10:53:20 AM
