What Is a Superfood?

 

The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.
- Thomas Edison

Every single housemade recipe on superfood eateries’ signature menu contains at least one or more superfoods, providing you with maximum nutrition in every bite.

A superfood IS:

  • a whole food (organically grown if possible)
  • a raw food (retaining life forces, enzymes, and synergistic effects of plant components)
  • easily digestible
  • exceptionally nutritious, containing proportionally higher quantities of nutrients and other beneficial food attributes
  • a food rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fatty acids
  • an excellent dietary source of antioxidants and phytochemicals that strengthen the body and immune system
  • a food that assists in the prevention and elimination of disease and premature aging
  • a food that promotes healthy elimination and presence of beneficial intestinal flora
  • an excellent, permanent dietary/supplemental addition to daily intake

A superfood is NOT:

  • an isolate of any kind
  • synthetic or chemically altered
  • a substitute for a well-balanced diet (because maximum benefits occur when superfoods are a daily part of a whole food, plant-based diet)

Why Take Superfoods?

We all know that proper nourishment is fundamental to our health, yet in our modern world of factory farming, irradiated foods, and soil depletion, consumers are often exposed to not so fresh produce that contains both inadequate nutrient levels and too many pesticides to be the foundation for optimal health and healing. Combine these issues with our busy and stressful lives, environmental stressors, and our growing isolation from nature, and we exponentially raise our need for a more concentrated source of quality nutrition and immune strength.

This is where superfoods become a valuable resource to our health.

In general, superfoods are excellent for improving:

  • any inflammatory condition
