The market is full of functional foods that perform a real task within our organism. Many of them are unknown or we are not aware of their functional properties for our organism.
What are functional foods?
Functional foods are those that are used not only due to their nutritional features but also due to the fact that they perform a specific task like improving our health and reducing the risk of suffering certain diseases.
Some examples of functional foods
Some of the functional foods that we eat on a daily basis are as common as: eggs, meat or fish since they contain the basic nutrients to be classified as functional foods
Prebiotics and probiotics are also regarded as functional foods since they support the functioning of the intestines (the former) and help to produce beneficial intestinal bacteria (the latter).
Knowing each food’s function is very important if we want to follow a balanced diet, always along with an exercise routine of course.
