New Generation Of Superfoods May Not Be So Super

September 12, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Foodies and health food groupies who thrive on the cutting edge of the superfood world have apparently moved beyond acai, quinoa and chia seeds, especially now that those once exotic foods are available at Walmart and Costco. Instead, they have latched on to the newest wave of rare, foreign and super-nutritious beverages: moringa, E3 live blue-green algae, citicoline, freekeh, turkey tail mushroom, sideritis, etc. All promise enhanced wellbeing or super energy. But nutritionists warn that a diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein, etc., is probably all anyone needs to stay healthy. And no one really knows whether these so-called superfoods are really any good for you at all. Some, eaten with certain medications, may actually be harmful.
