Whenever one thinks of Ayurveda, the image that comes to mind is of a few medicinal herbs, but that’s not the case. There are a few superfoods too which, when included in your diet, can help you out balancing your health. India’s history with Ayurveda dates back to centuries, and the related treatment was given to a number of patients.

However, in today’s 24x7 busy lifestyle, we at times skip these superfoods and opt for speedier and easier options. If we know the health benefits of superfoods, then one might opt for skipping them. Dr. Manjri Chandra, Senior Nutritionist, says “ loaded with vitamins and anti-oxidants, women should include superfoods in their diet. Given the fact that women lead a much stressful life, these superfoods can be highly beneficial for them”
