What is a Superfood?

superfoodSuperfood for Super Health

 

Superfoods are foods that are rich in nutrients and phytochemicals which have disease-fighting properties.  The benefit of eating these foods is that you get superior nutrition along with strong health benefits.  Including superfoods in your meal plan helps to give you energy, reduce cravings, maintain a healthy body weight and support your immune system.  Many superfoods are things you may already be eating like blueberries, dark chocolate, green tea, mangos and tomatoes.  Other superfoods are not so easily obtained at your local market.

I drink Shakeology because it contains an amazing number of superfoods.  I will be highlighting each of these these foods in future articles but here is a list of some of the nutrients in Shakeology.  If I tried to go out and buy all of these foods individually the cost would be prohibitive.
