Why are Superfoods so Super?

Hint: It’s not because of the information found on a nutrition facts panel

Why are Superfoods so Super?


While there is not set criteria for what is considered a superfood, it is agreed upon that the term should be limited to only the healthiest foods on the planet. Many superfoods originate from ancient civilization from all over the world where using “food as medicine” has been the norm for thousands of years.


It’s generally not due to the information you find on a nutrition facts panel. Lets look at Cinnamon as an example. Cinnamon is considered a superfood, yet has a mostly empty nutrition panel. So why is it considered a superfood? It’s because Cinnamon contains various antioxidants that have been linked to help things like inflammation, cardiovascular system, and help regulate blood sugar levels. Many times, a superfood is considered super because of their antioxidant properties.


Lets start with a definition of free radicals. Free Radicals are are molecules that your body creates that damages your cells – which create diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, infections, Alzheimer's, etc. They are produced naturally by your body as a natural part of aging. But they are harmful.

Antioxidants protect your body against free radicals. They remove them from your body. There are tens of thousands of different types of antioxidants, and they can serve different benefits. You should eat a variety of foods rich in antioxidants since different antioxidants will serve different benefits.

There are various types of antioxidants and they will be referred to throughout our website. We like to simplify the categorization as follows:

  • Enzymes: Superoxide Dismutase, Glutahione, Catalases
  • Phytochemicals: Catotenoids, Flavonoids, Allyl Sulfides, Polyphenols
  • Vitamins: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Folic Acid, Beta-Carotene, CoQ10


In summary, eating healthy is more than just the information found on the nutrition facts panel. There is more to it than just calories, fat, cholesterol, carbs, protein, etc. We always recommend eating a wide variety of different foods, because they have different antioxidants which serve different benefits to your body.
