What are Superfoods?

… Acai Berry and more

What makes something a superfood?  There is no dictionary definition. I consider a superfood to be a food which is relatively high in nutrient value and relatively low in calories. It’s a nutrient dense food, so you need to eat less to benefit, plus superfoods usually contain specific antioxidants and other nutrients which aren’t available in ordinary foods. Whoever said “variety is the spice of life” was certainly correct.

Superfoods are also those foods that do such things as lower cholesterol and blood pressure. In other words, they have several benefits to them that ordinary foods don’t have. The Acai Berry is one of those foods. It provides energy, helps you to lose weight faster, lowers cholesterol, lowers blood pressure, and consequently may help prevent several serious diseases like heart disease. Acai Berry is not the only superfood, but is part of a family of superfoods.
