What Makes a Superfood Super?

We’ve all heard the buzzword “superfoods” used to reference everything fromgreen tea to chocolate, however the term is more accurately applied to naturally occurring foods that are unusually dense in nutrients for their calorie count.

Some common superfoods include lean meats like turkey, leafy greens like spinach, and foods that “punch above their weight” in terms of nutrition, such as blueberries, salmon, fruits and nuts.

Superfoods are naturally rich in certain nutrients like:
  • Antioxidants
  • Healthy fats, for heart health
  • Fibre, thought to promoted digestive health
  • Phytochemicals, plant chemicals that possess numerous health benefits.
Superfoods can support:
  • Heart and digestive health 
  • Metabolism
  • Detoxification
  • Bowel function

While it would be great if we could eat these nutrients on a daily basis, time and budget constraints, as well as seasonal availability, mean it’s not always realistic. People’s busy lifestyles and temptation of less than healthy fast food can make it even more challenging to eat healthily! Swisse range contains many of the nutrients also found in superfoods in convenient multivitamin and supplement form. It is important to try and achieve a healthy & balanced lifestyle, and supplementation can help.
