Health benefits include improving heart function, reducing hypertension, preventing cancer, and they’re great for anti-ageing and eye health.
Tiger Nuts need no introduction. Our magic weapons in the #SOTM are high in Vitamin E, Omega 9, and are a natural pre-biotic. Amazingly, they contain as much iron as red meat. They’re great for digestion and gut health as they’re high in fibre, they can help with weight control, they’re a natural energy booster, and they’re also high in potassium and magnesium.
Blueberries are a potent superfood and one of the best sources of antioxidants. There’s so much goodness packed into them, that we could write a blog post on them alone!

They’re also cancer fighters, they can alleviate inflammation, and maintain healthy bones and skin.
Bananas are packed full of potassium, so are great for heart health and blood pressure. They’re superb for energy-boosting, and can also aid digestion, and help with gastrointestinal problems, due to their fibre content.

Sweet Potatoes are great sources of fibre, and are packed full of vitamins and minerals, such as iron, calcium, selenium, vitamin C and multiple B vitamins. They can reduce the risk of cancer, the high-fibre content makes them great for digestion, and they are a fantastic source of beta-carotene.
Rhubarb is packed full of fibre and high in vitamins C and K. It can help treat constipation as its super for digestion, it strengthens the bones, improves blood circulation, lowers cholesterol and boosts brain health. As well as this, it can prevent Alzheimers, and cancer too.
