The ‘Superfood Solution’ is based on the belief that you can reach your health and fitness goals without having to turn to synthetic drugs or unnatural foods. We think you can attain optimal health and performance using food, herbs, amino acids, and other natural means. We believe that health and performance go hand in hand.
So what exactly is a “superfood”?
There is no widely accepted definition of the word “superfood”. One dictionary defines a “superfood” as “a food (such as salmon, broccoli, or blueberries) that is rich in compounds (such as antioxidants, fiber, or fatty acids) considered beneficial to a person’s health”.
However, you will find that many people – especially health bloggers, supplement manufacturers, influencers, etc. – have different definitions of superfood. Essentially, many people use the term to describe any food that they think of as vaguely “healthy”.
While the term “superfood” is now at tirks of becoming meaningless through overuse, we believe the concept is definitely a valid one. The fact of the matter is that there are foods out there which can have enormouly beneficial effects on human health and performance.
So what foods are superfoods exactly?
As we’ve already explained, the list of foods that people have described as “superfoods” is absurdly long. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t foods which we can definitely identify as “superfoods”.
Some foods which would fit any definition of “superfood” include:
- Dark green leafy vegetables
- Beans and legumes
- Cottage cheese
These foods all have significant positive effects on different measures fo human health and performance. Whether it is through lowering cholesterol, supporting brain development or fighting infection, these foods all benefit you in ver meaningful ways without causing any serious adverse effects.
