Nutritionist Juhi Kapoor in her recent Instagram post talks about superfoods that can help with micronutrient deficiency and relieve symptoms of chronic or persistent health issues.
Small changes in your diet can make a big difference in your overall health. Mornings especially are perfect to give your day a perfect nutritional start. Many of us may face micronutrient deficiencies that could be the cause behind some serious health issues. For instance, a lack of iron, folate and vitamins B12 and A can lead to anaemia. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to low blood calcium levels, rickets, softening of bones in adults. Nuts such as almond, cashew nuts, walnut, and peanuts are a good source of B-vitamins, folate and vitamin E. These tiny superfoods if eaten regularly can thus play a major role in your well-being. Health experts say that nutrients are better absorbed by the body when you soak these nuts. Soaking them overnight helps remove the phytic acid in these nuts which causes indigestion. Soaking nuts also improves their digestibility and helps better their taste and texture. (Also read: Soaked almonds: 8 delicious ways to add the wonderful nuts to your diet)
