Coconut, quinoa, avocado – these superfoods you may already know. But aside of these there are many other amazing superfoods that you should definitely try in 2016 – or maybe this year, there is still plenty of time! Maple water, bone broth, manuka honey, have you ever heard about these superfoods? Keep reading on to find out the latest superfoods trends of 2016.

kefir

Kefir

After kimchi and kombuch, the latest potion to join the family of the fermented superfoods is kefir. High in probiotics (the health bacteria that maintain the digestive system working well), kefir has a consistency similar to yogurt. It has great abilities at helping individuals with digestive issues and is very low in lactose. Plus it contains great levels of phosphorous and calcium. Since it has a sharp taste, you should try it in fruit smoothies.

banana-flour

Banana flour

Made from green bananas, banana flour has a nutty flavour. It is gluten-free and makes an amazing add to smoothies and salad dressings. It can even be used to replace traditional flour in your baking recipes. But due to its highly absorbent properties, you don’t have to use much of it. Banana flour is also rich in resistant starch, which means it helps control blood-sugar levels and protect against diabetes and colon cancer.

manuka-honey

Manuka honey

Manuka honey is one of the most amazing superfoods loaded with various unique health benefits. It is produced by bees that feed on the native Australian Manuka plants and is highly known for its powerful natural antibacterial properties that can help maintain the body’s general health and wellbeing. Manuka honey can stimulate natural immune response, be used to treat common colds and sore throats and is an effective way to enhance the look of the skin.

maplewater

Maple water

The purest form of drain that runs through maple trees, maple water has amazing health-boosting properties. It is packed with antioxidants and minerals that help control sugar levels and improve thyroid function. It has been called by many as the new ‘wonder water’, but there is still not enough studies to support the claims. Until there are more proves, enjoy maple water for what it is – a great natural sweet drink that is hydrating and could be doing wonders for the body.

bone-broth

Bone Broth

Bone broth is a protein-rich superfood that contains calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium and sodium. It has abilities to help heal the digestive system and prevent fatigue, insomnia and anxiety. Plus it contains gelatin and collagen, which enhance the skin, hair and nails health. To make a bone broth you will need 3 kgs of bones and a couple of cups of vegetables and herbs. Simmer the ingredients together for 6-12 hours, skimming frequently.
