2. Avocado: At first glance, avocado’s nutritional profile fails to impress. Unlike kale, avocadoes have no over-100% DVs for any vitamins or minerals. And yet, this fruit shines for other reasons.

First, the avocado contains an excellent anti-inflammatory compound. In a study where avocado was used to supplement synthetic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for patients living with chronic pain, it was shown that avocado safely, effectively, and significantly reduces an osteoarthritis sufferer’s need to use NSAIDs after six weeks of therapy. [3]

Second, the avocado is full of phytochemicals that not only stop cancer growth but also induce the death of cancer cells without causing harm to normal, healthy cells of the body. [4]

Third, aside from its own health benefits, the avocado also enhances the health benefits of other super food because its healthy fat content allows the body to absorb more lycopene, beta carotene, and lutein from the food consumed along with the avocado. [5]

3. Green Tea: Unlike its black counterpart, green tea is extremely rich in non-oxidized polyphenols, such as catechins, which constitute nearly a third of the weight of the dried green tea leaves. [6]

These polyphenols are largely credited for green tea’s documented ability to prevent cancer, kill tumors, reduce cholesterol, and treat degenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and artherosclerosis. [7][8]
