Why are superfoods called superfoods?

 The term superfood is thought to have first been used in the early 20th century to promote a brand of bananas. Since this time, it has been used frequently to promote many items, but what does it actually mean?

The website Medical News Today defines it as ‘foods that offer maximum nutritional benefits for minimal calories’

These are usually plant-based and are full of nutrients, vitamins and amino acids that your body needs to thrive. They are called ' super' as they bring a supercharged boost to your diet and help your body to operate at its maximum potential.

Wheatgrass is a food that has earned the term superfood. Containing higher levels of chlorophyll than any other green vegetable and high levels of Vitamin B5, B12 and E it is a powerful addition to any diet. The nutritional value in one portion of wheatgrass  juice  compared to 1.5 lbs of broccoli!
