Abstract:

Introduction- Superfood is a nutritional term and a marketing tool for selling specific foods, dietary supplements, foods with selected food additives, promising an enhancement to health with supposed health benefits as a result of some part of its nutritional analysis, or its overall nutrient density. Objective of the study is to systematically critique the supplementation of superfoods and types of superfoods on the course of fighting against cancer and boosting immunity. Electronic search of Medline, Pub Med, Health Internetwork access to Review Initiative was conducted. Scientific evidence highlights on the fact that high intake of cancer-fighting foods like vegetables, fruit, calcium-rich foods and fiber was associated with a decreased risk of colorectal, lung and breast cancers, while red and processed meat intake, alcohol intake, combined with restricting intake of saturated and trans fats and added sugars, and maintenance of a body mass index (BMI<25) and abdominal obesity were associated with an increased risk of cancer. Promising potential naturally occurring super foods such as berries, green leafy vegetables, cruciferous vegetables, organic spices and hurbs, citrus fruits, Cultured dairy product, Traditional teas, mushrooms, Healthy unrefined fats and oils containing therapeutic properties to boost immunity and fighting against cancer. There is a need for the search of such natural-based anticancer therapies, explores the antineoplastic potential of these chemotherapeutic cancer superfoods and highlights the metabolic and molecular targets of these potential anti-cancer superfoods.
