Also included as superfoods in his honourable mention section are:

Acai, Camu Camu Berry, Chlorella, Incan Berries, Kelp, Noni and Yacon. The Yacon syrup he mentions caught my eye. It is a sugar substitute and is native to the Andean region of South America. The Yacon plant is related to the sunflower and has edible leaves. The syrup is freshly pressed from the Yacon root, which contains high quantities of antioxidants and potassium. It is:
* Non-glycemic
* Low-calorie
* Natural and raw
* Pesticide-free
* Improves calcium and magnesium absorption and strengthens bones
* High in antioxidants
* Cholesterol reducing
* Improves the absorption of vitamins, especially Vitamin B
* Regulates the digestive system
* Improves friendly intestinal flora growth
* Reduces symptoms of blood sugar disorders (type 2 diabetes, hypoglycaemia etc)
* Vegan
Yacon syrup can be substituted for any other sugar in any recipe, in your muffins, coffee or swirled around in your breakfast oatmeal.
