What Makes a Food a “Superfood”?

You’ve likely heard of the term “Superfood,” as our society starts to become a little more health-conscious and a little more aware of what the food we take in each day does to our body. But maybe it still might be a mystery to you what makes a food “Super,” which is exactly why Espinosa Family Chiropractic is providing you with this article!

A superfood is generally termed as a food that is rich in certain compounds, like antioxidants, fatty acids, etc. that are known to be exceptionally good for a person’s health.

However, in today’s marketing-ridden culture, many foods are being dubbed “Super” merely to increase sales numbers, without actually delivering much in the nutrition realm.

What we do know is that when people think of food as medicine, it will be less likely that they experience health conditions that will put them on permanent medication.

Blueberries, kale, walnuts, turmeric, garlic, spirulina, and many other foods have been labeled “Superfoods” while also delivering some serious nutrition to your body in the process.

Many of these superfoods can help reduce your risk of getting heart disease or cancer. But, when it comes down to it, your body is your body. Try some superfoods on for size and see if you get any noticeable results.
