What You Need to Know about Superfood Powders3/13/19
Stepping up your fitness game means perfecting your nutrition. But not everyone has the time to spend hours in the kitchen and not everyone likes to eat 3 servings of vegetables per day — that’s where superfood powders come in. Powdered versions of superfoods are a convenient, delicious way to reap the health rewards of nature’s best foods.
This in-depth guide to superfood powders will show you why adding an organic powder supplement to your diet pays off!
What Are Superfoods?
“Superfood” sounds like a loaded word, doesn’t it? You’re right — superfoods offer great bang for your buck when it comes to vital nutrients. These special fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants, vitamins, fibers, and natural compounds that work together to make you the best version of yourself.
The best superfoods are organic and non-GMO — natural is best!
The only problem with superfoods is that there a lot of them. Imagine trying to fit spinach, kale, ginger, sweet potato, and a dozen other fruits and vegetables into your daily diet! That takes a lot of effort, time, money, and refrigerator space.
Why Use a Superfood Powder?
And so enters superfood powders. Superfood powders are exactly what their name implies — powdered versions of superfoods. Take the humble spinach for example: 92% of spinach is water!
Take the water out of the equation, add in some clever manufacturing, and you wind up with a superfood powder that contains all the goodness of the original fruit or vegetable. You get the best of both worlds: convenience, speed, and cost-effectiveness, all in one.
On top of that, it’s a lot easier to take a serving or two a day of superfood powder than it is to chow down on platefuls of greens.

Organic strawberries are an excellent source of HDL (good) cholesterol, antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber. Raspberries contain all the gallic acid, vitamin C, and ellagic acid you need to keep harmful inflammation down. If you’re looking to keep up with your need for manganese, blueberries are a delicious option!
Cherries, pomegranates, and cranberries come loaded with antioxidants. Cranberries also help with urinary tract infections — the high-level proanthocyanidins keeps bacteria from growing inside the urinary tract.
Beets are a great all-rounder: plenty of potassium, magnesium, vitamins, and nitrates make this red vegetable a great option.
