SUPERFOODS

SUPERFOODS

Dr. Steven Pratt, M.D. proposed the concept of a ‘superfood’ in his book SuperFoods Rx. His premise is simple, namely, that some foods are dramatically better than others for our health and longevity. Superfoods are foods that have a high nutrient density. Superfoods give you a diverse combination of unusually high amounts of vitamins, minerals, fibre, amino acids, good fats like monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats,antioxidants, and nutritious phytonutrients (plant compounds) like polyphenols.

A superfood could be a berry, like the goji berry; a nut, like the walnut; or a seed like the chia seed. We stock a wide range of quality superfoods. Keep reading for more information on why these foods are super and for some tempting serving suggestions.
