Resisting the urge to pour that second cup of coffee can be pretty tough, but substituting your caffeine intake with maca powder is both energizing and healthy. As an adaptogenic root, maca powder nourishes the endocrine system to help regulate hormones affecting stress, energy levels, emotions, etc. It just takes a few teaspoons of the powder mixed into smoothies, oatmeal, or other drinks to boost energy, relieve stress, and put you in a better mood. Maca powder is also a great source of vitamins, minerals, and protein, adding calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium and seven essential amino acids to your diet.
Wheatgrass powder is a highly concentrated nutritional supplement of the leafy green plant it comes from. Ground from the sprouted shoot of wheat, this powder boasts a rich source of beta-carotene, calcium, fiber, iron and vitamin K. Wheatgrass powder is also packed with chlorophyll, which binds to heavy metals and other toxins to rid them from your system. It’s a highly alkaline food that helps balance pH levels in the body; this makes wheatgrass an excellent addition to Western diets which are too often overly acidic from processed foods. Wheatgrass powder has a slightly sweet taste that goes well with many foods, or just mixed with water for a juice.
This incredible blue-green algae really stands up to its status as a superfood. As a source of all nine essential amino acids, spirulina is considered a complete protein. Just one ounce of spirulina delivers a mighty 16 grams of protein. Spirulina’s impressive nutritional attributes don’t stop there; ounce-for-ounce, spirulina boasts over four times the antioxidant concentration of blueberries and over 26 times the calcium of milk. Spirulina is also a plentiful source of minerals such as iron, potassium, and zinc. The smoky seaweed taste blends seamlessly in liquids, smoothies, and salad dressings, or sprinkled over food.
Considered one of nature’s most nutritious superfoods, moringa powder is a more concentrated source of nutrients than many common fruits and vegetables. Ounce-per-ounce, moringa powder has more vitamin C than oranges, more iron than spinach, and more dietary fiber than oats. Just like spirulina, moringa powder is also a protein powerhouse containing all nine essential amino acids. It’s an excellent source of beta-carotene and antioxidants, which support healthy cells by fighting oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Rich in plant-based compounds called cytokinins, moringa powder may have protective anti-aging effects. You’ll love moringa’s nutty flavor in beverages, yogurt, dips, and other foods.
Our acai powder brings the nutritional richness of fresh Amazonian berries straight to you! Acai powder is one of the most antioxidant-rich fruits around. As a rich source of omega fatty acids (omega 3, 6, and 9), acai powder helps regulate metabolism and protect the cardiovascular system. Omega-3 and omega-9 are the same highly sought-after fatty acids found in salmon and olive oil, but this versatile powder ensures that you don’t have to go to great lengths to obtain them. Acai powder is rich in dietary fiber to aid digestive health and keep you feeling full for longer. With a deliciously tart and tropical taste, acai powder is a favorite for mixing in yogurt and smoothies, or sprinkling over oatmeal and cereal.
