Next Episode of Superfoods: The Real Story is
Kate Quilton returns for a new series investigating the purported health benefits of superfoods. Superfoods seem to be everywhere - not a day goes by without a 'superfood' story hitting the headlines. Backing up these eye-grabbing stories are thousands of studies devoted to connecting the humblest of ingredients to the grandest of claims. But just what can we believe? Kate investigates the real science behind the supposed health benefits and reveals which foods truly deserve the title - super.
Can kale help with eye health? Does grapefruit fight fat? And is sugar substitute xylitol good for your teeth?
Are berries as good for us as they're made out to be? Can detox drinks containing charcoal rid our bodies of toxins and undo a weekend of excess? Is sweet potato a malnutrition game-changer?
Can broccoli help fight cancer? Is quinoa better than rice? And should we be adding a type of algae, spirulina, to our diets?
Can fermented milk drink kefir help keep digestive disease at bay? Is omega-3 rich oily fish a must-eat for heart health? And can wheatgrass oxygenate our blood?
