What are Superfoods?
Superfoods are foods that have a very high nutritional density. This means that they provide a
substantial amount of nutrients and very few calories. They contain a high volume of minerals,
vitamins, and antioxidants. Antioxidants are natural molecules that occur in certain foods. They
help neutralize free radicals in our bodies. Free radicals are natural byproducts of energy
production that can cause great damage on the body.
The body cannot possibly get every nutrient it needs from a single food. As a result, a person
needs to consume a variety of nutrient-rich foods throughout the day. The advantage of adding
superfoods to your diet is that since they often have more nutrients per gram (a.k.a nutrient
density), you get more nutrients per bite than you would eating any other healthy food.
Furthermore, the antioxidants in superfoods (ORAC) are known to help shield organs from cell damage and help the body perform its instinctive/biological disease-fighting functions more effectively.
How are they beneficial for our health?
Superfoods contain a variety of nutrients, such as antioxidants, which are thought to ward off
cancer. They also have healthy fats, thought to prevent heart disease; fiber, thought to prevent
diabetes and digestive problems; and phytochemicals — the chemicals in plants responsible for
deep colors and smells, which can have numerous health benefits.
