Publisher Comments:

Paul Gross, the Berry Doctor, gets beyond the marketing hype on superfruits, using an easy-to-understand method of ranking potential stars. By looking at nutrient density, research support and popular appeal, Gross delivers a cornucopia of offerings that can easily enhance well-being. Further, he includes ideas to add the nutrient-rich fruits into the diet, whether via simple suggestions in the breakdown of each offering, a list of the types of products to look for in the supermarket, or by following the creative recipes from the back of the book. By elucidating which superfruits truly deserve that title, Gross enables readers to make proactive choices to enhance their own health.
