The World's Top Superfoods

While clever marketers have used (and often abused) the term superfood to sell all kinds of “healthy” stuff, and even though they have no official, legal definition, it’s still pretty easy to see what makes so-called superfoods like açaí and pomegranate so super. They are typically loaded with health-promoting perks, from essential vitamins to antioxidants to flavanoids. As potent wellness boosters, they are known to combat cancer, lower cholesterol, fight heart disease and reduce your belt-size. Though you may have just heard of them for the first time, a lot of superfoods aren’t recent discoveries but have been revered by ancient cultures for centuries, such as chia seeds, which could sustain an Aztec warrior for a whole day. From tasty fruits to fragrant spices and — you guessed it — vegetables, each of GAYOT's top ten superfoods can be easily incorporated into your regular diet.
