"Superfoods" are the healthy stars of the moment because they come to boost and defend our body naturally. They come from plants with exceptional nutritional properties, the most famous of which are acai or spirulina. Consumed in different forms, the latest trend among foodies is to incorporate them in powder form into breakfast recipes.
Foods that have exceptional nutritional properties are called superfoods. They are very rich in vitamins, minerals and/or proteins and provide a beneficial dietary supplement to our body. They are credited with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, they boost our body, detoxify our cells, strengthen our immune defenses and facilitate intestinal transit. They can be consumed in various forms and are easily found in dietary supplements in tablets, capsules or powder. We love them because they contribute to the proper functioning of the body but should in no way be substituted for a balanced and varied diet. Zoom in on ten of them.
