You will really understand what it means when people say, “you are what you eat.” These foods will revitalize both mind and body in ways that even scientists don’t fully understand. Give them a try, and feel your best!


1. Kombucha

This fermented drink is loaded with more healthy revitalizing compounds than you can shake a stick at. Consumed for centuries all over the world, this drink is made by fermenting healthy types of bacteria and yeast. Although this drink is lightly fermented, it really does give you a feeling of “SWOOSH” when you drink it! This has tons of healthy probiotics that will improve your digestive system, where about 90 percent of your immune system lies. It also has all of the B vitamins, which are very important for vegans. B vitamins are vital for a healthy mind and for keeping depression at bay. Kombucha also has plenty of antioxidants for long-lasting energy. If you haven’t tried this super drink, you are missing out!


2. Turmeric

No list would be complete without this super food giant! Turmeric, whose active ingredient is curcumin, is perhaps the most powerful herb in the world. With potent anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-fungal compounds, this disease-fighting herb has shown to work wonders on everything from Alzheimer’s disease to arthritis to cancer! Add this spice to all sorts of dishes, including vegetables, rice, and soups. Or, if you prefer, simply mix a tablespoon in a glass of warm milk and drink it every day for revitalization of both mind and body that you can really feel!


3. Apples

There are many, many reasons to heed that old adage about an apple a day. Apples improve the immune system, reducing cholesterol, which can stop heart disease, as well as help with all types of digestive problems. Apples also can improve your brain function, memory skills, and mood. Just one or two apples each day increase the levels of acetylcholine in your brain, which is a very important neurotransmitter vital for memory. Apples also remove toxins in the brain, which can cause things like dementia. There are dozens of ways to get your apple on if you really aren’t a fan of the flavor. Try squeezing your own apple juice, or try some of the many different varieties until you find one that tickles your taste buds.
