Superfoods

What’s a Superfood?

These are foods that have 3 key qualifications:

1. Readily available to the public;

2. Contain nutrients that are known to enhance longevity; and

3. Health benefits have to be backed by peer-reviewed, scientific studies.

I like to think of Superfoods as colorful, fresh, delicious, good-for-you foods!

Chances are, if you eat a relatively healthy diet, you’re eating Superfoods. Here are just a few from the long list:

1. Apples (hooray!)–high in fiber and antioxidants–and only 47 calories

2. Blueberries–berries are full of antioxidants and known to boost immunity; a 2012 Harvard study found that at least one serving of blueberries or 2 of strawberries reduced the risk of cognitive decline in older adults

3. Tomatoes–lycopene in tomatoes fights cancer by increasing the amount of carcinogen-fighting carotenoids your body is able to absorb
