Superfoods

Superfoods

Simply Defined: Nutrient Dense foods. Foods that have more absorbable nutrients per serving than other foods. For example, an acai berry has 10 times more antioxidants than grapes.(1) Plus it has added omegas for brain health.

Looking to science we can look to the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale. A measure that shows the antioxidant levels in foods. Foods higher on this listed are considered superfoods. For example, Acai berries have the highest ORAC reading of any other food. (2)
