Superfood is a mysterious word that conquers the culinary dictionaries all over the world. What the superfood products are and how to add them to our diet? These questions can be exhaustively answered by David Wolfe in his book "Superfood. Food and medicine of the future". More and more often we hear: "You are what you eat!". For some, it is a kind of an annoying cliché, used too often, for others - an empty opinion, in which they simply do not believe in. But today, thanks to research, we know that this sentence is frighteningly true. Already in antiquity, Hippocrates used to say: "Your food should be a medicine, and your medicine should be your food." Food, above all, has a huge impact on the functioning of our body. It has an influence on our physical, mental health, our libido, sleep, IQ or vitality. Every bite of a processed food with a poor quality is another step that brings us closer to diseases of affluence. Is there a recipe? Of course – the only thing you need to know is what to eat to give your body valuable ingredients as much as it is possible. Thanks to them in a natural way, we strengthen our bodies, we will be more energetic, but above all - healthier.
