Superfoods are nutritionally dense whole foods (they provide as much nutrition as possible in the least amount of calories possible) that are high in beneficial antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
To put it simply, superfoods are nutritional powerhouses. Superfoods are extremely high in micronutrients like vitamins, minerals, as well as antioxidants, enzymes and health fats. All of these nutrients are essential to your body so you can thrive.
Or to put it another way: Superfoods are the superheroes of the plant world.
