Unmasking Superfoods: The Truth and Hype About Acai, Quinoa, Chia, Blueberries and More by Jennifer Sygo

It can be overwhelming and frustrating to try to understand the claims about "superfoods." Do raspberry ketones really help you lose weight? Do blueberries really fight cancer? Are goji berries worth a try? For over five years, Jennifer Sygo has been separating the truth from the hype in her popular National Post column. Now in her first book, she tackles even more superfoods and in more depth. You'll learn why

  • -the calcium in kale is absorbed as well as the calcium in milk
  • -lentils, chickpeas and beans are not just good for you; when cultivated, they also put important nutrients back into the soil
  • -goji, acai, and noni berries may be more hype than substance
  • -xylitol, a sugar alcohol with a third fewer calories than sugar, could actually help prevent cavities and even ear infections
  • -Sports nutrition (whey protein, chia etc.)
  • - Weight-loss (raspberry ketones etc .)
  • -people who eat avocadoes tend to weigh less than those who don't
  • -beets might help you run faster—and maybe even perform better in bed

In Unmasking Superfoods, Sygo discusses the latest research on the most popular superfoods and offers recommendations on how—or if—you should incorporate these foods into your diet.
