Superfoods are naturally nutrient dense foods, mostly plant foods but may include fish and eggs. They are whole food, i.e. they are unprocessed and unrefined and full of high levels of nutrients that are easily absorbed into the body. People need a lot of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and many other nutrients in order for the body and brain to function at their best. Unfortunately, intensive farming methods utilized by farmers produce foods that are devoid of nutrients but full of harmful chemicals. Added to this, the foods are processed beyond recognition and filled with even more chemicals and sugar. In an effort to counter this problem, some people take a variety of vitamin and mineral pills but then most of the mass-produced pills are laboratory chemicals that are not absorbable by the body and are therefore useless. Only good quality supplements extracted from natural food can manage to correct the nutrient-deficiency problem.
Instead of swallowing synthetic supplements, health-conscious people get all their nutrients from a variety of organically grown foods (which are better quality) and superfoods (which are nutrient-rich). The best foods are organically-grown superfoods grown in exotic places by small farmers. The nutrient quality and quantity are very high and each one contributes to the optimum functioning of the body. Superfoods are expensive but they are worth the high cost because of their long list of nutrients which prevent continuous expenditure on the treatment of diseases later in life. However, people cannot live on superfoods alone but should make them part of their balanced diet.

The Benefits of Superfoods
The high vitamin and mineral content in superfoods help the body to fight off diseases and stay healthy. Incorporating superfoods into a well-balanced diet promotes brain health, heart health, the health of all the organs, and weight loss, improves energy levels and even reduces the effects of aging. We will mention some of these benefits under each food item given as an example.
Antioxidants found in many superfoods defend the cells from DNA damaged caused by free radicals. By reducing oxidative stress, superfoods prevent cancer, early aging, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, brain diseases, arthritis, immune deficiency, and many other lifestyle diseases.
Essential fatty acids (omega-3s and 6s) are found in the right proportions within superfoods. These healthy fats improve brain health and thereby reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, improve the length and quality of sleep, reduce symptoms of mood swings, reverse symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and reduce frequency of relapse in people suffering from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. For the heart, the fatty acids reduce triglycerides in the blood, prevent plaque formation, increase levels of good cholesterol, prevent formation of blood clots in blood vessels and lower blood pressure. They also reduce inflammation in the body and lower insulin resistance and improve eye health. There are many other benefits.
Superfoods mainly consist of plant foods that are rich in fiber which prevents diabetes and digestive health problems.
Many superfoods also contain many other phytochemicals that are responsible for deep colors and aromas which have various health benefits.
Knowing which foods are superfoods is a good idea since one can then incorporate them into the daily diet. There is no standard list of superfoods as such but simply a list of foods that are nutrient-dense. Here are some of the foods that are considered to be superfoods and their benefits
