A to Z SuperFoods

Here is a fabulous A to Z Superfoods Chart from Superherbalfoods.com.

Although superfoods are often thought of as belonging to a category of exotic and often expensive foods like Maca, Lacuma or Camu Camu, you might be surprised that many of the common fruits and vegetables in your supermarket can actually be classified as a "super food" due to their vitamin, mineral, micronutrient content and other properties that have been shown to be beneficial to human health.

Some important points to remember:

  • Buy locally grown and organic whenever possible
  • Buy produce that is in season
  • Eat fresh produce as soon as possible for maximum health benefits
  • Eat at least 5 servings a day (recommended by U.S., EU and world health organizations)
  • Eat more servings for weight loss and detoxification
  • Eat a wide variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables - eating a daily "rainbow" is recommended
