The superfood category includes a range of different foods such as mushrooms, tea, algae, herbs, spices, fruits and berries. They all contain amounts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Superfood, superfruits or super powder is a collective name for the foods that are rich in nutrients and are often bought in a concentrated form. Why it is important for us to balance our diet with superfoods is to create a complement to the nutrients we do not get the right amount of due to various reasons. It may be, for example, that because the soils and pastures have been leached on important substances that we would otherwise get in us through the food we eat. It is also becoming more common with vitamin and mineral deficiencies because we more often eat whole or semi-finished products where much of the nutrition has been removed.
