10 Amazing Superfood Powders
We all know that it is almost impossible to get our daily required amounts of nutrients from the foods we eat. Especially if you, like myself, are living in the western parts of the world.
A great supplement for this is using a superfood powder to add more nutrients and minerals to our daily diets.
This can be done by using these powders in various forms such as smoothies, shakes and juices.
And if you were thinking that powders which get used in shakes are only for gym lovers and bodybuilders, then you are incorrect!
They can be used in so many different and healthy ways.
Below are ten amazing and healthy superfood powders you must try
Maca is a sweetish root vegetable from the South American country of Peru.
It is full of nutrients and antioxidants, such as amino acids, vitamin C and protein.
Some of its benefits include increasing your levels of energy, adding nutrients and antioxidants to your body, and also helps improve your reproductive abilities (particularly in men).
I am sure you have heard of this one before, as it is the popular green tea powder hailing from Japan.
It is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, and has plenty of health benefits.
The high concentrations of chlorophyll act as a natural detoxifier by cleansing the body of unwanted chemicals. On top of that, we get the amazing high amounts of antioxidants which are also found in green tea.
You can use matcha powders in cooking, baking or in various drinks.
Acai berries are native to the Amazon, and are full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
They are great in fruit bowls, breakfast bowls or smoothies.

It’s best consumed in the form of a smoothie or juice, so you won’t even taste it as it’s known to not be the best tasting powder around!
Tumeric is an awesome powder, and is found in many Asian dishes for flavour and for its health benefits.
It’s part of the ginger family, and is a root with a yellow colour.
An easy way to consume it is to add to it your soups or broths. Or you can mix it with plain yoghurt and honey for a healthy breakfast!
