SuperFoodsRx - The Best Way to Eat
It’s long been known that certain populations live considerably longer and healthier lives than others.
Sophisticated computer analysis has enabled researchers to determine which populations these are. Highly respected institutions, including the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, and the National Cancer Institute have looked at this data, which includes information on the foods eaten by these healthiest populations.
Superfoods show up over and over again in these diets. Taken together the scientific evidence showing how these foods can reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease and a slew of other maladies that lead to early death is overwhelming.
What Are the SuperFoods?
The SuperFoods are the unique standout foods that, when consumed individually or together, have the power to deliver significant health benefits over the lifetime of an individual.
First and foremost, SuperFoods are Whole Foods. While there will always be debate about the meaning of "whole foods," we consider them foods that are unprocessed or minimally processed in such a way that none of their nutritional characteristics have been intentionally modified.
SuperFoods work together synergistically — that is, they produce better results when paired with other SuperFoods. These whole foods are complex, containing hundreds of unidentified compounds and nutrients. A growing body of research suggests that these nutrient-rich foods work best in concert with each other to promote good health.
We help break down that information for you.
SuperFoodsRx: Simple and Positive
A healthy diet is the essential core of a healthy life.
We all live busy, complicated lives. Nutrition recommendations that are complicated or challenging can't become a regular part of our routine. "Diets" that forbid foods or make eating satisfying meals a challenge are counterproductive.
SuperFoodsRx is here to make it easy and fun to add SuperFoods into your and your family’s lives. We deliver engaging and informative information about how you can change your life through better natural nutrition. And soon, we will be launching an online marketplace of the healthiest, tastiest SuperFood products from specially selected and approved brands — all available for delivery straight to your doorstep.
Live longer and better with SuperFoodsRx.
