The 6 Superfood Powders You Need to Know About
The term superfoods is just as popular a buzzword as Collagen in the health and nutrition world today. It refers to nature-packed nuggets of antioxidants – fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices – that are naturally found all around the world. But superfood powders make these powerful antioxidants accessible from just about anywhere.
Why superfoods are important
The average American, despite research and more awareness, still only consumes 1-2 servings of vegetables daily, which leaves them way behind the current dietary recommendations of 5-9 daily servings. Nutritionists agree – eating a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables is the key to good health. This is where superfoods come in.
This nutritional category includes a variety of colorful foods like dark berries, mushrooms and green, leafy vegetables. They are usually low in sodium, saturated fat, and refined sugar. According to Claudia Guy, ND, Director of Nutrition for InVite® Health, superfoods may pack more Vitamin C than lemons or more carotenoids (organic pigments products by plants and algae) than carrots. But many superfoods can be difficult to incorporate into your daily diet, as many are seasonal or difficult to find.
