Another food craze going around the internet is superfoods. Usually when people think of superfoods they believe that if they eat this specific food high in nutrients in abundance, then they won’t get sick anymore and that other foods less nutritious are not worth eating.

So these 5 best superfoods for radiant skin should be used along with your diet and not as a substitute.
Bee pollen is known to help with hay fever, it’s high in protein and antioxidants that boost our immune systems. It also gives us plenty of energy! Bee pollen is flower pollen that sticks to the bee, which, when the bee cleans itself, it is packed behind the bee’s legs. A teaspoon or two a day with your breakfast, such as porridge, cereal, smoothies, and it melts with your food as it is powdery.
Chia seeds are another easy-to-eat superfood, packed with healthy nutrients. It is high in omega 3 fatty acids – if you detest fish like me then this is a great alternative to get the same nutrition! – and fiber. I like it with plain water or I add it to my breakfast!
Kefir is fermented milk. Fermented means that healthy bacteria have grown in the milk and it tastes like runny yogurt or thick milk. It’s great for digestion and for the gut to work well because of the probiotics.
Famous superfood berries are blueberries and goji berries. Goji berries are high in Vit C and blueberries contain lots of antioxidants, lowering the risk of heart disease and blood pressure! Generally, all berries are extremely nutritious!
Salmon is a fatty fish. It’s really healthy for you because it is high in omega 3 fatty acids which are really important for a strong heart, a healthy lifestyle and healthy looking skin!
