What are your thoughts on all the “superfoods” that are being advertised today? I’m talking about acai, goji, noni and mangosteen, among others. These are all supposed to be nutritional miracles, able to cure anything and everything that ails you. Do you know anything about them, Joe?
In short, I’m not convinced that any of these much-hyped products are any better than all of the wonderful fruits commonly available, and for much less money, at your local grocer.
I did a little research on these exotic fruits and while they certainly do have healthful nutrients, they are not the wonder foods marketers would make them our to be. If you have the money and want to take them, that’s fine – no harm done to anything but your pocketbook.
My advice, however, would be for you to simply buy fruits like blueberries, strawberries, apples, oranges, pears, bananas and a variety of other “common” fruits at the supermarket and enjoy similar benefits, and their taste, while saving a whole lot of money.
