Are superfoods all that super?

The term ‘superfood’ has been around for a while now. But what exactly does it mean? First things first. There’s no official definition of what a ‘superfood’ actually is but what we can say is that it’s a term first popularized around the turn of the century to describe foods exceptionally high in nutritional value. Superfoods are often quite colourful in nature and include fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, wholegrains, nuts and some meats like salmon. If you’re thinking this sounds expensive, don’t panic. You don’t have to break the bank to reap the health benefits of superfoods.

It’s actually never been easier to get superfoods into your diet every day. With powdered formulas like Radiance SuperGreens Plus Powder and Radiance BerryGreens Powder you get the benefits of all that nutritional power without having to face a full fridge or pantry after just one shop.

So, what are the benefits of superfoods?

  • They’re great for helping to support vitality and energy, nutritional balance, immunity, calmness and digestive health.
  • Taken daily they can provide many essential vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, probiotics, nutrient herbs and protein in one hit.
