What are Superfoods?

Superfoods by definition are foods that are widely believed to be nutritiously dense. They’re premium quality foods most people turn to for naturally-occurring Vitamins, Minerals, and Antioxidants.
These are typically whole foods that are grown from nature including everything from Herbs & Spices to Fruits & Vegetables, or Nuts & Seeds. Each classification of Superfood contains unique properties that offer valuable nutritious benefit.
