As those who are 'hip' to the raw and organic scene know, the buzz about 'superfoods', or foods that have a dozen or more unique and very beneficial nutritional properties, has been building and strengthening massively over the last few years, thanks in part (maybe even a little more than a part) to raw foods advocate David Wolfe. Now in his most recent book, Superfoods, The Food and Medicine of the Future, just released mid May, David has published a comprehensive compilation of facts and figures on the top 10+ foods that he believes are the most super nutrient loaded and beneficial of them all.
This super list includes goji berries, blue-green algae, hemp seeds, coconuts, maca and bee products (bee pollen, honey, royal jelly etc.)
So what does David have to say?
"Superfoods are both a food and a medicine; they have elements of both. They are a class of the most super potent, super-concentrated, and nutrient-rich foods on the planet–they have more bang for the buck than our usual foods. Extremely tasty and satisfying, superfoods have the ability to tremendously increase the vital force and energy of one's body, and are the optimum choice for improving overall health, boosting the immune system, elevating serotonin production, enhancing sexuality, and cleansing and alkalizing the body. Superfoods meet and exceed all our protein requirements, our vitamin and mineral requirements, glyconutrient (essential polysaccharide sugar) requirements, essential fatty acid requirements, immune system requirements, and so much more. Nourishing us at the deepest level possible, they are the true fuel of today's "superhero.""
Well said David! Following his introduction to superfoods, he goes on to devote a chapter to each of them, wherein he discusses every detail about them including their histories, easy to understand sub chapters on their beneficial properties, what kinds of products to look for, how to use them, and finally several delicious sounding super recipes. To our delight he has even included information about each superfood's Ayurvedic properties, super interesting!
