The power of superfood: is it real or is it a new marketing strategy to sell?
These nutritionally high-powered foods are marketed as a possible cure for heart disease, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, aging, and even cancer. Even though no official standards exist for the term “superfood,” it shows up in health magazines, blogs, and medical websites. Everyone is talking about the healing benefits of spirulina, acai berries, and chia seeds and more.
VEGETABLES, FRUITS, RED MEAT, SALMON, OILS,
The truth is that many of these foods have been around for centuries. Their health benefits are backed up by science. The only novelty is the term “superfoods,” which is mostly used for marketing purposes.
However, this doesn’t mean that superfoods are just a fad. On the contrary – they boast a high nutritional value and exhibit health properties, such as decreased susceptibility to infections, cancer prevention, stronger hair and nail, improves digestion, and stronger immunity. Other benefits of superfoods include increased energy, younger looking skin, fat loss, and improved brain function. On top of that, there are no side effects to worry about.
CATCH: For the superfoods to take full effect in your body you have to eat them everyday, not only once in a while or to be “in a eating healthy fashion”
