13 superfoods that boost energy

Food and exercising go side by side, that’s a scientific fact. The better you eat, the more you will be improving your performance on any physical activity and making the best out of all your hard work at the gym or when practicing sports. In this article we will explore 13 superfoods that boost energy, essential for athletes or health enthusiasts that want that extra strength pushing your limits further, and great for those who just want to eat delicious and healthy food as well.

Açaí

Açaí is considered by many a “superfruit”, and it tops the list. One of the healthiest fruits around, Açaí is very popular among athletes as it is one of the richest fruits in antioxidants you can find, automatically linking it to a healthier and stronger immune system. By supporting the heart system, it improves cardiovascular health and reduces fatigue. The antioxidants prevent the oxidation of cholesterol and keep the body clean from harmful substances, while nutrients like fiber and omega-3 acids can make you feel energized for the whole day. There are many ways of eating Açaí, and Açaí shakes are one of the most popular. By including fruits and oats in your Açaí Shake, you’ll get a healthy energy boost from this superfood and day by day improve your overall health and physical performance.

Açaí Effects

Blueberry

This purplish fruit is a great asset to people who suffer from muscle strain and have a very active lifestyle. Recent studies on blueberry intake have shown it to be related to muscle recovery. It contains proteins that can improve oxidative stress and inflammation during a heavy load of exercise.

Beans

Beans contain a great deal of protein. Slow digesting carbs help you maintain your energy throughout your day. Beans are famously rich in iron, potassium, copper and magnesium. Careful not to eat too much before exercising or it may leave you feeling too full for physical activity, requiring some time to process it properly.

Lentils

When talking about fiber, lentils are one of the richest foods that have it. Part of the legume family, lentils are high in soluble and insoluble fiber, which helps digestion and prevents sugar spikes that make you “energized” and then tired. They may be small, but lentils are rich in iron and are made up of more than 25% protein, making them a great alternative to meat, especially for vegans.

Salmon

One of the most popular fish in the world, salmon is rich in omega 3 fatty acids (a type of healthy fat that can reduce inflammation), it is one of the healthiest foods you can find and it’s a source of several B vitamins that help turn food into energy and lower your cholesterol.

Almonds

Almonds are a must-have in a healthy breakfast. Originally from countries by the mediterranean sea, almonds are a great source of healthy fats, protein and fiber. Almonds bring us many benefits when it comes to physical activity and making the most of our energy from food. It contains magnesium, which directly fights muscle fatigue, and B vitamins, which help the energy conversion process in our body. Almonds have also been related to cholesterol-lowering properties and to the relaxation of blood vessels, improving blood flow and boosting physical performance.

Oatmeal

Oatmeal is another must in foods that boost energy and adding it to your breakfast is a great way to start your day energized. Filled with vitamins and minerals, oatmeal is also rich in low-glycemic carbs that give you extra energy for your physical activity and helps with sugar spike control. Fibers are a great aid in digestion as well. It’s a popular food among athletes and usually mixed up with fruits and yoghurt.

Chia Seeds

Chia has been used as an energy booster for centuries. Ancient Mayan and Aztec cultures used to call it “running food”. Chia seeds are a great source of energy as they come with an amazing combination of protein, fiber and fats. They make you feel full longer and improve body function and digestion, giving you a boost of energy that will last throughout your day and fuel your workout.

Avocado

Avocado, just like Açaí, is also considered a superfood. It’s one of the most complete fruits around, containing a strong mix of amino acids and vitamins. Rich in monounsaturated fats, it gives you more energy than a saturated fats diet, and its vitamins C and K content, are related to strength in bones, cartilage and muscles. Eating half an avocado for breakfast is a great way to start your day with an extra energy boost.

Beet

There goes another superfood. With famous detox properties, beet is a strong aid to a healthy body and to the proper activity of your metabolism. For athletes, it’s a great energy booster because of nitrates that help our body’s energy-producing cells called mitochondria. Also packed with vitamin C, potassium, magnesium and fiber, it is considered to be a “natural cleaner” of the body.

Eggs

Packed with protein, eggs are a rich source of leucine, an amino acid that aids the body in the use of energy and muscle recovery. Just one egg contains more than 6 grams of protein,  helping prevent muscle loss and preserving muscle mass. It’s a great choice for a pre or post activity meal.

Spinach

As seen in popular culture, spinach is actually related to boosting energy and improving the quality of blood. It contains magnesium, which helps your body to produce energy, and a great amount of vitamin K, which strengthens your bones. Also considered a superfood, in which a daily consumption brings many other benefits, such as reduction of blood sugar and cancer prevention.

Bananas

Maybe the most popular fruit in the world, bananas are easy to include into your diet. As another superfood that boosts energy, it’s a combination of natural sugar, complex carbohydrates and amino acids makes bananas an athlete’s favorite. It is considered an ‘’instant energy booster’’ by scientists, providing glucose and potassium to your body. Mixing it in a shake with açaí, avocado and oatmeal is a great idea for a protein rich, energy booster smoothie. Try it!
