Trending now: Superfoods
As you may have guessed, the term superfood is truly a marketing term, this is not in any way a medical descriptive. However, doctors and nutritionists alike refer to these foods as super because of being nutrient powerhouses. Superfoods contain high levels of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins and minerals, all of which do good to your health, help improve medical conditions and reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Even though there are now many superfoods that people were not familiar with (chia seeds, kale, hemp seeds), here is a list of very common foods you probably didn’t know were superfoods!
