What Are “Superfoods”?
According to the American Heart Association, a superfood is any extra-nutritious food that can produce a number of health benefits when incorporated into an already balanced diet. While currently there is no strict definition or criteria for what classifies a superfood, they are generally high in antioxidants, fiber, healthy fats, and/or phytochemicals. A variety of fruit, vegetables, seeds, fish, and dairy products can all be found topping superfoods lists across health blogs and nutritionist recommendations.

By ensuring our bodies receive proper, clean nutrition, we naturally support the immune system, restore digestive functioning, aid detoxification, and increase oxygenation. The cancer-fighting properties of superfoods enhance these effects and reduce the risk of cancer even more by protecting and preventing cells from damage and mutations.
