Superfoods are hardworking functional foods with very high nutritional values. They are quiet simply the most cleanest, most powerful, anti-oxidant rich, phytonutrient rich and anti-ageing foods available anywhere. These superfoods date back centuries when they were consumed by the ancient civilizations of both the Andes and Amazonian regions for their medicinal and nutritional benefits. These foods are now being exported to the world, bringing those ancient remedies and traditions to the 21st century.
