Superfoods come in a range of forms. Some include:
Green Superfoods (such as kale, spinach, wheatgrass, and spirulina)

Fruit Superfoods (such as goji berries, acai, raw cacao, coconut, and noni)
These are especially high in antioxidants which protect the body from free radicals and oxidative stress. In turn, they help to prevent disease and cellular damage.
Herb Superfoods (such as nettle, echinacea, ginseng, and aloe vera)
