The word “Superfood” has taken the world by storm, sweeping up the conversations and research subjects of nutrition fanatics and experts for the last 20 years. But what exactly is this 21st century buzz word?
What makes a superfood a superfood?
For most, superfoods are a range of natural products that offer health benefits with positive effects on your body. Every product has its own unique mix of qualities and positive effects, with typically one or two extremely high levels of desirable nutrients. For example, some enhance your metabolism, others boost your immune system, and some provide a major energy boost.
