How do superfoods help?
The title of “superfood” is usually reserved for natural foods that are especially loaded with nutrients while being generally low in calories. They are a category of foods that are super-healthy, though not all healthy foods are superfoods. Most superfoods are known for their high content of antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, fiber, flavonoids, and healthy fats. Superfoods deserve a place in every kitchen.
