What’s so ‘super’ about a Superfood? Is it food that has special powers? Sort of.
A superfood is nutrient-rich and considered especially beneficial for health and well-being. They promote health by increasing immune function & helping to keep certain diseases at bay.
Superfoods are rich in one or more of the following:
Antioxidants. Natural compounds that protect your cells from damage may lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, and other diseases and help your body function toward its highest potential.
Minerals, such as calcium, potassium, and iron. These are called essential minerals because the body doesn’t make them, so we need to eat foods that contain them.
Vitamins. Many superfoods are good sources of Vitamin A, C, E, K, and B Vitamins.
At a genetic level, superfoods boost health by helping the expression of genes with slower activity and calming some activity of others.
