What is a superfood? This question is often asked of me when I tell them that my diet consists mainly of organic foods, and in particular organic superfoods. Superfoods are high in nutrients and offer the best value for money. They have amazing medicinal properties and have been used for thousands of years in many cultures to heal, sustain, maintain, and improve health.
Good to know
They are often high in antioxidants, minerals, and enzyme rich. There are many different types of superfoods. Some superfoods are well-known and most people don’t realize they are eating superfoods. They are often marketed as superfoods, because they have the potential to be healthier than other options.
However, a true superfood is best when it is raw and uncooked. Superfoods are foods such as Garlic and broccoli, kale and tomatoes. These foods are actually very healthy. Many people have heard of these foods, and have enjoyed them repeatedly. It is better to buy the wild or organic version of these foods as they are more “super” without any added chemicals and preservatives.
Take into account
Other superfoods are less well-known. These foods can help you achieve good health. I spent the last year researching superfoods and have been using them in my daily life with great success.
