Superfoods. It’s a word that’s used a lot, but do we know what it means and what foods fall under that category? According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a superfood is defined as “a nutrient rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and wellbeing.” There are a number of foods out there claiming to have the superfood title, with everything from leafy greens to avocado. While some you can pick up in your local supermarket, others are a little more difficult to come by, which is why we want to help at Myvitamins. Did you know that among our range of vitamin and mineral supplements, we stock a range of superfood extracts too? We’re going to look at our three nutrient-rich bestsellers to see how they can help your daily routine.
