Superfoods are both food and medicine. They are the most powerful, concentrated, nutrient-dense foods on earth, giving us the biggest nutritional bang for our buck. By incorporating superfoods into your diet regularly, you can awaken your potential to experience radiant health and enjoy youthful, glowing skin and strong, thick hair and nails. These foods will help you look and feel the best ever in your body.
Olive Oil, a known beautifying superfood, contains high amounts of vitamin E and oleic acid. These nutritional compontents can both smooth the appearance of your skin as well as boost your immune system. The immune system is a network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to defend the body against "foreign" attacks. Ongoing stress severely depresses the immune system and makes you susceptible to illness and disease.
Olive Oil can easily be added to your diet via delicious salad dressings such as this one featured in The Beauty Diet book:
