Can a Popular Chip Dip Be a Super-Food?

(The Best Years in Life) A super-food could be defined as a nutrient-dense or rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being. Nutrient-dense suggests low calories with high nutrients. And lately more micronutrients and polyphenol antioxidants and their values have been discovered that are beyond the health benefits of vitamins and minerals we had been acquainted with during our public school educations.

Almost everyone loves guacamole. Although the nutrient dense issue could be argued since the essence of guacamole, avocado, is high in calories. But the nutrient rich aspect is obvious upon closer examination. By the way, if you haven't discovered that the saturated and non-saturated fat health threats are bogus, get up to speed here.

The combination of mashed avocado, lemon or lime, sea salt, pepper, a little chopped chili peppers, chopped onions, and diced tomato quickly mashed into what is known as guacamole creates a synergistic super food as well as a tasty treat.

Each ingredient has it's own health merit alone while contributing to a whole that may be more than the sum of its parts. You may or may not use all the ingredients listed here, and you may want to use others as well. But these are the basic ingredients for most guacamole.


Chili peppers and/or cayenne, though a smaller part of the guacamole mix, contain capsaicin, the ingredient that creates heat sensations upon contact. This is true of cayenne as well, and cayenne has been used for health purposes ranging from curbing indigestion, ulcers, reducing high blood pressure, even stopping heart attacks.

Master Herbalists Dr. John Christopher and Richard Schulze consider daily high heat cayenne powder in water the perfect heart tonic.

Sea salt, the real deal unprocessed and unadulterated, contains a perfect accessible balance of macro and micro minerals unavailable in many other foods. Distilled sea water's structure closely resembles blood plasma enough that it has been used successfully as blood transfusion substitute in animal experiments.

Black pepper freshly ground contains pepperine, a pungently flavorful spice that increases the absorption of vitamins, minerals, and other medicinal spices. It's often used with turmeric to help absorb the curcumin.

Onions contain high amounts of sulfur, a vital part of creating glutathione (GHS), the master antioxidant that is crucial for maintaining immunity against degenerative disease and helps the liver detoxify.

Diced tomatoes contain lycopene, a carotenoid that helps protect against various cancers, especially prostate, and supports heart health.

Lemon or lime juice, freshly squeezed actually produces alkalinity in the body even though it's acidic before consumption as citric acid. Ayurveda medicine prescribes unsweetened lemon or lime water consumption as morning ritual before breakfast to help cleanse the liver

About the author:

Paul Fassa started looking into natural health to overcome his unhealthy lifestyle. Then he developed more interest as he researched his articles for Natural News and Align Life.

He is amazed at the ignorance of natural medicine and how beneficial foods and herbs are constantly ignored or vilified in order to promote toxic foods and meds by Big Pharma, the FDA, USDA, and the AMA, what he likes to call the "Medical Mafia".

His blog is - "Healthmaven: Escape from the Medical Mafia Matrix." His Natural News articles can be reviewed here:
