Rating:
+5
The author names a series of superfoods. i.e.
o acai berry
o blueberry
o strawberry
o cran and red grapes
o anthocyanins

The body needs plenty of fiber and micronutrients
from these superfoods. In addition, antioxidants
are mandatory; such as the vitamins A,C,E, Selenium.
Kiwi has Vitamin C, fiber, Omega 3,6 and Vitamin E.

Resveratrol inhibits inflammation, anti-clotting
and the onset of cancer. The book has some classic
menus. i.e.

Citrustonic consists of banana, mandarin orange,
grapefruit and lime. Salmon with superfruits is
a powerhouse meal.

A strength of the work is that the author names both
the food groups and sample recipes concurrently.
The book is highly recommended for health buffs
everywhere.

Gross enables readers to make proactive choices to enhance their own health.”

“Dr. Paul Gross has done an excellent job. This book will be an important resource for informing the public about the health effects of fruits.”
—Gary Stoner, Ph.D., Comprehensive Cancer Center, Ohio State University

“Dr. Paul Gross’s straightforward and well-documented book provides strong direction and clear-cut answers for consumers, based on well-reasoned research and compelling evidence. His use of readily-understandable superfruits criteria and a ‘points system’ for rating health-beneficial fruits is a welcome answer to consumers seeking the best choices for themselves and their families.”
–Mary Ann Lila Ph.D., Director, Plants for Human Health Institute, North Carolina State University

"Dr. Gross is a leading expert and strong proponent of consumer education and superfruit science, and following ...
