What is a superfood?
Superfoods are foods that provide health benefits beyond their basic nutrient content. Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, these foods can help lower cholesterol levels, help prevent or delay disease, and even save you calories! Be sure to include some every day to super-charge your health!
