What people call a “superfood” is “a food rich in phytochemicals, which are special chemicals that have been noted to have disease-fighting properties”. Phytochemicals are said to help prevent cancer and boost one’s immune system. It is important to note, though, that research regarding these chemicals is always evolving. That doesn’t necessarily mean that phytochemicals will be suddenly found to have negative properties, but it may mean that the health-marketing around superfoods could be a little inflated and over-exaggerated.
The first link below provides a more in-depth discussion of superfoods and some examples, while the second link provides some information about phyochemicals.
The term “superfood” is often used to describe foods that are very high in phytonutrient content that delivers health benefits as a result. A good example of a common superfood is blueberries, which contain significant amount of antioxidants, anthocyanins, Vitamin C, manganese, and dietary fiber.
