How much have you spent on health foods or medicine in the past few months?
How much would you pay? For a superfood that promised to:
- Heal your gut
- Improve your digestion
- Make your skin glow
- Help you achieve your optimum weight
- Supplement fibre, vitamins C and K, potassium, calcium and phosphorus.
- Protect you from depression and Alzheimer’s.
Would you pay £10?
So that is £1 for a cabbage
£0.30 for a carrot
and £8.70 for 15 minutes of your time!
Oh, and it also tastes good!
