Hi there and thanks for visiting Superfood Profiles. My name is Jim Dillan and I’ve been researching and writing about superfoods for over 10 years now.
Coming from a background in journalism, you’ll notice my articles are heavily researched and supported by links to peer reviewed studies. In fact, my work is often used as a reference by some of the biggest health sites online.
That said, please discuss using supplements or superfoods with your doctor, especially if you are taking medications or being treated for a serious disease. Nothing on this website should be considered medical advice.
About Superfood Profiles
I’ve noticed that the vast majority of information about superfoods online falls into one of two different categories. Firstly there are the scientific pages like research studies and detailed nutritional data.
These are the type of articles that, generally, only someone as heavily interested in the specific details of a superfood like myself would wade through. There’s a lot to read and the tone is usually very dry.
Secondly, and far more common, are websites on general health that will have a basic, summary type page on particular superfoods, or more often a top 10 list.
These superfood summary pages will usually list a couple of health benefits, perhaps a few vitamins and minerals, usually in bullet points and then quickly move on. If you’re looking for more details or an answer to a certain question, they are like a small snack when you really need a big meal.
What I intend to create with Superfood Profiles is a resource in between these two extremes. The purpose of this website is to provide detailed information on specific superfoods – health benefits, nutritional information, where to find them at the best price, even health improving recipes and how and when to eat superfoods for maximum benefit.
At the same time, I want every page to be simple to read and make it easy to find what you’re looking for. I’ll do this by focusing each article on a specific topic or question about individual superfoods, rather than lumping everything into one big page.
Each month different superfoods will be profiled in detail. I’d really appreciate any questions you may have in the comments section below each topic. I’d also like to hear of any particular herbal remedies, green superfoods or healthy oils you’d like to see covered in the future.
Incorporating a variety of superfoods into my daily diet, and importantly, treating them like the food they are rather than an occasional pill to pop, has made a huge difference to just about every facet of my overall health.
So many people these days seem so tired and lethargic or full of tension and stress. At the same time, health problems and diseases associated with poor diets and over-consumption are on the rise. We may be generally living longer, but the quality of life we are living with is questionable at best.
While there are many factors behind these issues, a large one is undoubtedly the quality or lack of quality in the food we eat on a daily basis.
Hippocrates, considered the father of modern medicine, said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Regularly having superfoods in your diet can provide the essential nutrition that is sadly lacking in the majority of over-processed foods dominating the supermarket shelves.
The effect of receiving a higher level of nutrition, after surviving with deficiencies for so long, is often both energizing and medicinal to our various health problems.
Once we experience this new higher level of vitality it becomes much easier to let go of addictive junk foods and habitual over-consumption. This is why having superfoods daily is such an important first step to improving so many areas of your well-being and life in general.
Wishing everyone reading this the better health, increased energy and enhanced experience of living that I believe superfoods can help provide.
All the best,
