Some superfoods are said to increase longevity and make people feel better overall.

Blueberries, acasi, baobab fruit powers, kale, spinach and pomegranate seeds are good examples of super foods. A healthy, balanced diet will include five-ten superfoods, but many people use nutritional supplements to get a mega-dose of the healthy ingredients they contain.

Others include: red raspberry, pomegranate seeds, Concord grapes, cranberry, wolfberry, bee pollen, noni, aloe vera and the seeds and skin of grapes. Omega-3 fat in salmon and sardines is one reason many nutritionists, such as David Wolfe, call them superfoods.
