The comic book opens with the masked crusader. Her cape flaps behind her, thanks to the wind she creates with her own forward momentum. She’s focused. Her mission is to protect not just life in general but the quality of one’s life too. No, she’s not someone who endured a fateful bite with a radioactive spider, like Spider-Man, nor is she a Kung Fu master, like Bruce Lee.
She is a superfood.
What are superfoods?
Medical News Today defines superfoods as “foods that offer maximum nutritional benefits for minimal calories. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.” They’re known to help prevent coronary heart disease and cancer, improve immunity, decrease inflammation, promote healthy nails, hair, and complexion, as well as increase one’s energy.
So what foods are these magical morsels of nutritional perfection that are revered as drops of the fountain of youth, you ask?
Medical News Today lists berries (acai, blueberries, goji berries, raspberries, strawberries, cranberries, blackberries), tea, leafy greens (kale, Swiss chard, collard greens, turnip greens, spinach), salmon, dark chocolate, wine, grapes, spirulina, blue-green algae, garlic, wheatgrass, beets and beet juice, turmeric, Brazil nuts, and barley.
