Superfoods: the ancient food of the future
The name ‘superfoods’ refers to natural sources of high nutritional value that meet a large part of our nutritional and energy needs. They have rare and unique active ingredients that work beneficially on specific functions of the body and thus contribute to a healthier and longer life. Examples of superfoods include Sea Buckthorn (Hippophaes), Milk Thistle, Spirulina, Cocoa, Rhodiola, Echinacea, Cinnamon, Pomegranate and Siberian Ginseng.
Superfoods have been used for thousands of years by people all over the world. Each one is associated with specific actions and benefits. Their effectiveness has been proven through long-term use, while different countries around the world have a particular relationship and history with the specific superfoods that thrive in their own climate. Superfoods are among the oldest plants and fruits growing on our planet.
