The power of superfoods [part 1]

The word Superfood has been spoken about so much in recent times, as people have become more and more conscious of all things relating to health and wellness. But, what is a Superfood? Is it an elusive expensive sachet filled with micronutrients? Or perhaps, superfoods are easily accessible to everyone! 

What is a superfood?

A Superfood according to the Oxford Dictionary is a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being. Superfoods have extra-large doses of essential vitamins and minerals in them which can help us ward off diseases and live a longer, healthier life. They can also be a great source of antioxidants, shielding our bodies from cell damage and helping prevent awful diseases in the long run.

As much as there are many particular foods which fall into the Superfood group, there are no set criteria by the FDA and American Heart Association as to what is and what is not a superfood. We do know that certain foods are highly beneficial and these have been labelled as the “SUPERFOODS”.

Although real food is always the optimal option, certain superfoods are nutrient rich and help you reach your mineral and vitamin quota for the day. Studies suggest that they can help you achieve better hormonal health, prevent chronic disease and improve the way you feel and think  every day.

There are a number of common foods that we can add to our diets which will provide these much needed nutrients, there is also an array of more exotic and less mainstream superfoods that are definitely worth getting to know!
