Top 10 super foods for oral health!

Ans. Superfoods are those foods that are full of nutrients; that means they are packages of good nutritive substances with little or no harmful ingredients. These foods provide many types of nutrient such as: antioxidant, minerals, vitamins and good fat with no added sugar and bad fats. Superfoods can improve your health and protect the body from many diseases.
