Chia seeds Tiny, but mighty! Chia seeds are loaded with system-cleansing fiber—1 tablespoon delivers 5 grams of it, or about 20 percent of your daily requirement, as well as omega-3 fatty acids that gobble up free radicals and guard against cell damage. Result: You’ll eat less and lose weight faster.

Cinnamon This spice has been used for both culinary and medicinal reasons since 2800 B.C. And even small amounts may help lower blood glucose levels, blood pressure and cholesterol.

 

 Cocoa The polyphenols (a group of phytochemicals) in cocoa are extremely potent—more potent than those found in green tea and red wine.  Of course, I’m talking about the kind of cocoa you’d find in unsweetened cocoa powder or high-quality dark chocolate—not a Kit Kat.

 

 

Flaxseed Dubbed “one of most powerful plant foods on the planet,” flaxseed is loaded with both soluble and insoluble fiber, healthy omega-3 fats and is the richest source of lignans, an antioxidant that’s been shown to reduce the odds of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancers, arthritis, autoimmune diseases and neurological problems.
