Ever heard of the word ‘Spirulina’? Well, perhaps you have after 2010 at least.
2010 was the year that introduced a whole new health and fitness scene, and what’s more is, it placed a lot of emphasis on why we should aim to be healthier, do more and heal ourselves with food. The same goes for daily rituals, that come along with it, such as drinking more water, having heaps of antioxidants and of course, vegetables!
Adding a superfood powder to your smoothies or breakfast bowls, however, will have a significant effect on your energy levels, will lift your libido, torch fat, protect your body against ageing, as well as many other effects life throws your way.
Another great thing about superfood powders is its ability to heal your skin, as well as make your appearance look healthier overall. Since it’s also considered a staple for both vegans and vegetarians, veganism and vegetarianism now have a wider variety of foods in their diets, primarily to support their nutrient-intake and prevent them from being mal-nourished when it comes to certain vitamins, minerals and fibre.
The Most Powerful Superfood Powders
#1 Maca Powder
Maca is popularly known as Peruvian ginseng and is a powdered root that includes a lot of benefits for the body. All of which includes higher levels of energy, as well as boosting vitamin B levels in your blood, along with essential minerals such as iodine and copper. Maca is derived from a powerful root and due to its high levels of vitamin B, also boosts libido, in both men and women, naturally.
This powerful powder is often added to smoothies for added nutrients.
#2 Moringa Powder
Moringa is an incredible superfood powder, which is green in colour and contains up to 17 times more calcium than milk, as well as 25 times more iron than spinach.
That’s one amazing superfood powder!
This powerful plant of Moringa is also known to absorb cholesterol in your blood, as well as fight heart disease, which means you’ll be having about two more scoops of all that goodness.
Moringa also contains protein, as it has nine essential amino acids, and is also perfect for a post-workout recovery smoothie, as it can help ease muscle fatigue.
It seems that all the superfood powders tend to be green.
Spirulina is made up of a total of 60% protein, and has the nine essential amino acids, making it another ideal food to add to your diet for muscle recovery.
Spirulina is an excellent source of protein for both vegans and vegetarians, as it fuels their protein needs and can easily replace animal protein because it contains all nine essential amino acids.
Let’s get colourful.
As a superfood powder that’s a bit more diverse, spirulina adds great variety to anyone’s diet, and are the perfect breakfast, snacking or dessert option for vegans and vegetarians too. Not only does it contain some of the highest antioxidants than any other superfood powder, but it’s also much higher in omega-3’s and allows for healthy cholesterol levels, a healthier hear, a better hormonal balance, perfect skin, as well as weight loss.
