Author(s): Manminder Pal Singh, Monica Reshi, Neeraj Gupta, Neeraj Sharma, Gyan Singh Jankawat, Jesreen Chauhan and Barsha Sambyal
Abstract: The food and nutrition industry has made notable progress in introducing a new category of food called "superfoods." These foods offer numerous health benefits that include disease prevention, immune system boosting, and providing essential macro and micronutrients in sufficient amounts. The concept of superfoods is gaining popularity due to increased health awareness among consumers. However, despite their exceptional health benefits, superfoods are still not well understood. Superfoods are typically made up of fruits, vegetables, grains, and other foods. This review provides information on the nutritional makeup of some significant superfoods and their potential to prevent chronic diseases. It can help consumers effectively integrate superfoods into their diet. Dietary supplements are products that people consume to provide additional nutrients for good health, in addition to their regular diet. These supplements contain dietary ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs, and botanicals, and are intended to be ingested as pills, capsules, tablets, or liquids. They are clearly labelled as dietary supplements. Many people use dietary supplements to improve and maintain their general health, while women specifically take supplements to support bone health and prevent osteoporosis.
