5 of The Healthiest Foods Ever                                    

lemons 

Lemons

Just one lemon has more than 100 percent of your daily intake of vitamin C, which may help increase "good" HDL cholesterol levels and strengthen bones. Also citrus flavonoids found in lemons may help inhibit the growth of cancer cells and act as an anti-inflammatory 

 

Broccoli

One medium stalk of broccoli contains more than 100 percent of your daily vitamin K requirement and almost 200 percent of your recommended daily dose of vitamin C - two essential bone-building nutrients. The same serving also helps stave off numerous cancers.  dark chocolate

Dark Chocolate

Just one-fourth of an ounce daily can reduce blood pressure in otherwise healthy individuals. Also, cocoa powder is rich in flavonoids, antioxidants shown to reduce "bad" LDL cholesterol and increase "good" HDL levels.  

Potatoes

One red potato contains 66 micrograms of cell-building folate- about the same amount found in one cup of spinach or broccoli. One sweet potato has almost eight times the amount of cancer-fighting and immune-boosting vitamin A you need daily.  

 

The Healthiest Foods Ever

Salmon

Salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to a reduced risk of depression, heart disease, and cancer. A 3-ounce serving contains almost 50 percent of your daily dose of niacin, which may protect against Alzheimer's disease and memory loss.
