FOODS OF THE GODS? THE VERDICT...

1. KALE

Contains abundant vitamins and minerals, and phytonutrients, including lutein. 
Superfood? Yes.
Advice: Avoid eating it raw or in smoothies because raw cruciferous vegetables can interfere with thyroid function. If you don't like the taste, eat broccoli instead.



2. CHIA SEEDS









Contain protein, omega-3 (though without the benefits of fish oil) and fibre, which swells up to a gelatinous mass in the stomach and may curb the appetite. 
Superfood? No. 
They are high in phytates (antioxidant compounds that have the potential to inhibit the absorption of certain minerals) and their saponin content makes them potentiallly pro-inflammatory as well as allergenic.
3. GOJI BERRIES



Packed with antioxidants and promises of the elixir of youth.
Superfood? No
Goji berries are fulll of saponins; they are allergenic and belong to the deadly nightshade family. The Chinese use them mainly for tinctures and tonics rather than as food. 
Advice: Consume with caution, especially if you have arthritis, and instead eat blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries for antioxidants-and a better taste.



4. QUINOA



A great protein profile, plus minerals and B vitamins. 
Superfood? No.
Despite the protein, it is heavy on saponins and lectins (potentially gut-irritating compounds found in plants, seeds and grains). There are concerns about cross-contamination with wheat - it may not be a s gluten-free as we thought.
Advice: Eat it occasionally if you like it. Eat it more often if you are vegetarian and choices are limited.

5. ACAI




With double the antioxidants of blueberries, along with protein , fibre, essential fats, vitamins and minerals, tey are aso touted as a weight- loss aid.  Superfood? Yes
Could they help with weight loss? Maybe.
Advice: Avoid packages juices (too much sugar). Instead add a teaspoon of powdered acai to a smoothie or a glass of water.
