A "superfood" describes a type of dietary supplement that can also be considered a food, and in many cases, it's also used as a food. Unlike the isolated amounts of specific nutrients in most dietary supplements, superfoods offer a wide range of nutrients and are minimally processed. Two superfoods that were among the first dietary supplements ever offered on the market are lecithin and nutritional yeast. Today's superfoods include flax seed, spirulina, bee pollen barley, wheat grass, chlorella and others.

Health Benefits of Superfoods
Superfoods offer many benefits for health that widely vary, depending on the product. Flaxseed meal (which is ground flaxseed) provides omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, hormone-balancing lignans and protein. Cocoa products contain mood-boosting alkaloids, cardiovascular-friendly antioxidants and fiber, in addition to a delicious, deep chocolate taste. Wheat grass and spirulina contain amino acids, antioxidants and chlorophyll, and are thought to be alkalizing. Lecithin is a good source of B vitamins and healthy nutrient fats, and it may be useful in promoting healthy cholesterol levels. Pomegranate, acai and other berries are powerful antioxidants.
Other highly beneficial superfoods include barley grass, bee pollen and bee propolis, blue green algae, chlorella, kelp, quercetin bioflavonoids, royal jelly and rutin. We also offer multi-green formulas. The great thing about superfoods is that you can use as many as you'd like and in any combination. They'll help enhance the nutritional content of your diet for optimal health.
How to Use Superfoods
Each superfood is used differently. You'll find a wide variety of tablets, powders, liquids, sprays and bars. Labels will typically have recommendations, recipes and usage guidelines.
