You might hear the word superfood and roll your eyes.. but the truth is .. food IS medicine ! The more you adapt the ''food is medicine'' mindset the better off you are. If you often eat food that is heavily processed, lacking in nutrition, and abundant in ingredients that cause inflammation/gut disbiosis ... then you are hurting your health and making illness more welcome in your body. If you eat many foods that are nutrient dense, whole , and abundant in vitamins/minerals then you are helping your body be the healthiest it can. There are certain foods with potency and benefits beyond meeting normal nutritional needs. Being mindful of this and incorporating it into your routine is a really healthy habit and one that can have you reaping benefits and staying ahead of the health game !
