Thinking of going on a health kick? There are plenty of great foods you can start eating to get your body in shape. While most people associate vegetables with a healthy diet, there are also amazing fruits packed with every vitamin and mineral you can think of.
Let’s take a look at the 11 most nutrient-dense fruits to get you in shape. Have you tried mangos? How about watermelon? When was the last time you had lemons? Do you eat olives? Well you may want to start…
I get it, not your first choice. But olives are goldmines for nutrients. They are stuffed with iron, calcium, copper and Vitamin E. These benefits are said to lower your chances of developing osteoporosis.
A 2014 study, showed that plant compounds in olives can reduce the loss of bone mass, which gives way to osteoporosis. Not only that, but olives also do a lot of good on the cancer and heart disease front. Olives contain oleic acid, which strengthens the immune system, preventing inflammation and infection.
On top of these nutrients, the anti-inflammatory effects of their antioxidants make olives a great combatant against liver and kidney disease.
Now that I’ve mentioned this, perhaps you’ll look at the olives at your next family Christmas party a little differently.
