Superfoods are not new and have actually been around for several centuries. Very popular today, superfoods are berries, seeds, fruits, vegetables or even algae that have high levels of nutrients beneficial to health. But then who really are superfoods? Why are they important, how to eat them, what are their benefits? And above all, how to choose among all the superfoods? The answers to your questions can be found in this comprehensive guide to superfoods.

What is a superfood?

Superfoods are 100% natural foods that have high nutritional value providing many health benefits. These nutritional qualities are due to the high quantities of various nutrients making up the food and making it possible to cover our daily needs. Superfoods can thus serve as a basis for a healthy diet or make it possible to supplement certain insufficient intakes.

Why eat superfoods?

“Let your food be your only medicine” according to Hippocrates; we can say that superfoods clearly fit into this concept since good health depends primarily on our diet. In order to maintain or even improve your health, you must provide the body with foods with high nutritional value. Superfoods are precisely rich in various nutrients, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, trace elements, proteins, fatty acids, and active compounds recognized as essential for the proper functioning of our body. This real nutritional cocktail provides health benefits, particularly in protection of the cardiovascular system, in support of the digestive or immune system in cases of fatigue, cholesterol, diabetes for example. Superfoods also have beneficial effects on well-being, stress, weight loss, libido or even hormonal balance, tone, vitality or even beauty thanks to antioxidants fighting against cell aging. Superfoods are therefore a real support in certain temporary or longer-term situations.

Which superfoods to choose?

In order to eat healthily, with superfoods the least we can say is that we have a choice. The list is quite long but we can divide them into categories to keep it simple. Among the superfoods we therefore include seeds, Chia, Flax, Hemp recognized for their incredible richness in omega 3 and 6, berries and fruits particularly tasty and composed of major vitamins and antioxidants, plants, herbs, roots like Maca, Ginger or even Konjac, vegetables and “green” foods very rich in proteins but also in minerals and vitamins such as algae, cabbage, and also hive products.

Superfruits: berries and dried fruits

In the superfood family, berries and superfruits are renowned for their rich and natural composition in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, trace elements and also fiber. These superfruits, with their delicious flavors, are characterized by their healthy and balanced contributions.
