Top Superfoods 2019


Superfood refers to nutrient-packed nourishments with a usually high percentage of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, essential acids, etc which are extremely beneficial for the body. They are mostly plant-based such as berries, nuts, seeds, algae, fruits, etc and have more than 10 nutritional health benefits.   

Every Superfood is unique and contains a diverse composition of nutrients. Each one of them offers different boosts which aims to serve the body and build health. Superfoods are the essence of natural nutrients; you only need to consume a small amount to reap the full benefits.  

E.g. Camu camu  has over 40 times the amount of vitamin C than an orange; the amount of vitamin C one gets from eating 100g of Camu camu is equivalent to eating more than 4kg of oranges.
