Superfoods, nowadays they’re more popular than ever. Why are they so popular, why is everybody so excited about them? And the most important question of all: Is the hype about it really justified or it is just another scam and scientific proven wrong, and it actually doesn’t do anything?
I will give an in-depth explanation, guide, opinion, and scientific facts about them. And of course, as promised, I will in this Best Superfoods List give like the name say itself, show you what kind of foods is the best to eat.
But before I do that, I’ll explain more about what super foods are and what they do.
Superfoods, the explanation
Superfoods are basically naturally nutrition sources.
They are believed to help to raise your health and immunity level, and to raise your energy.
You can find them in berries and seeds, I can find them in the store just around the corner ( they also have to go with the hype around super foods ).
Now given this, it is time to see what kind of benefits they have!
The benefits of superfoods
I already mentioned they’re good for your health and energy, but Let’s see the total picture of them.
They are good for:
–Energy ( they raise it a lot, which means also less fatigue, which is good for your recovery rate as well ).
–Immune system ( it is believed they have lots of good bacteria to raise your immune system, and your health, they have good vitamins inside of them ).
–It is believed that they also help to burn calories ( they have something inside of them that raises the rate of your metabolism ).
–They help your skin to look younger ( super foods have many antioxidants inside of them, antioxidants are believed to help your skin to look up to 10 years younger ).
–This one is quite important, they reduce the chance of cancer and are very good of maintaining the health of your heart!
So, as you notice, they have a lot of benefits, and they’re very important because in the world nowadays, the majority of food you find is very, very unhealthy. I don’t need to mention to you about a McDonalds, or something in that kind of food.
They are full of fat, raise your weight, have lots of sugars.. If we think about it, the people that don’t know about the ingredients or don’t care too much, it is not a miracle that the health in general went down.
It would be a mistake however, to think that super foods will restore everything. Don’t get me wrong, they are very good, but, they can’t preserve a healthy life for you alone.
It is like you would go to the gym but instead of eating healthy you would eat burgers and fries all the day, and don’t forget the sodas that you drink with them.
Superfoods have a lot of benefits, but they only can unleash their potential if you want to change your lifestyle combined with using them!
So I really recommend to you when you use them, you also need to eat healthy, you should sport ( I’m not talking to body build or so ), but you really need to perform exercise, walking 5 kilometers is a very good beginning for example.
They are supplements, supplements means that they help you but still you need to do the work, they won’t work by themselves!
Knowing this now, Let’s see which kind of ingredients are inside of them.
The ingredients of superfoods
Of course, they vary from product to product, but they have kinda the same working effect.
Let’s view the ingredients inside:
–They have a large amount of vitamins inside.
All of these ingredients combined give a very huge health advantage, and its a perfect mix to keep your body in a very good shape.
So, with this in mind, it is time to see which kinds of super foods there are, and after that, you’ll see the list I made with the best super foods for you!
The types of superfoods
As you know, superfoods are a natural product, so the only thing you’ll find here are vegetables/fruit.
You have different types of super food:
–Green super foods

–The other remaining kinds of superfoods that don’t belong to any of above.
I will list now per category which kind of super foods you can have:

There are lots of these as you can see, now it is time for the next category
Fruits and nuts
They have the skills to help with killing bad bacteria, the list is a very long one, so I will keep it here with the most common/important ones:
–Cranberries ( not the famous singing group of the Zombie song )
There are plenty more of them, but these really help you very good and you have a wide range of variety.
The next category of superfoods is:
I think you can already guess what kind of superfoods is placed under this category, healthy herbs with plenty of vitamins inside of them. It is also believed that they have so medical properties.
Some of these herbs superfoods are:
–Nettle ( yes when you’re in contact with your skin with them, they burn, but they’re very healthy)
Again, a huge variety to try to eat.
And the last category, well, category, is the other kind of superfoods.
