The Superfoods Diet essentially refers to a style of eating that emphasizes consuming foods based on their nutritional value – the foods offering the most nutrients or beneficial compounds per serving are favored.

Superfoods are often rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, enzymes, and fiber. These foods help support the immune system and reduce oxidative stress in the body that can lead to early aging and, eventually, disease.

Many people feel that foods have to be exotic to be considered a superfood, but others feel that all whole foods are “super” foods.
