We know that superfood powders can be a powerful (and easy) tool for energy, hormones, stress, detox, and beauty. But the wellness industry can often feel oversaturated with options. That’s why in this article we’re going to break it down for. What is the best superfood powder? What to look for and where to buy. Let’s get into it.
What Are Superfoods?
Superfoods are potent functional and medicinal foods that have a variety of health benefits. They are foods that, when taken consistently, can improve skin issues, digestive system problems, low energy, fatigue, mood, radiance, hydration, nutrient absorption, immune function, and more. Most of the time, they are foods that have been revered as powerful medicines for years – and oftentimes, a little goes a long way.
Think of foods like spirulina, chlorella, collagen, acerola, phytoplankton, ginger, turmeric, wheatgrass, and functional mushrooms like reishi and chaga. The list goes on, but each superfood has a superpower. Like chaga mushroom for instance: chaga is known to support healthy immune function and sustainable energy levels.-it’s chaga’s claim to fame. Collagen’s claim to fame is its ability to strengthen the gut lining, help with inflammation and joint pain, and improve skin complexion.
Why Superfood Powders?
Imagine having to buy a chaga mushroom and then having to extract the medicine all by yourself. That would take a ton of time, and you probably wouldn’t get the amount of medicine you need.
Now imagine having a chaga powder at the tip of your fingers to sprinkle in smoothies, soups, and other things. Well, that is easy.
Superfood powders make getting in your superfoods easy. Usually a scoop of powder is your daily dose of superfoods and you’re set for the day! It’s a convenient way to add your vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to your day.
All of that being said, there is one other really important reason: our soil is not what it used to be. Our industrial agriculture system has destroyed our soil and depleted essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients from it. Because of this, it is a lot harder to get everything we need from food alone. Including a high-quality superfood powder in our daily routine is incredible for filling in the gaps.
What is the Best Superfood Powder?
Now, it’s important to understand that you can’t just go out and buy any old superfood powder. You need to be looking for a few things:
- Quality ingredients (organic, non-GMO, well-sourced)
- Allergen-free (no soy, nut, gluten, dairy)
- Clinically-proven (if a brand says these are the benefits, make sure they have research to back it up)
- Good tasting (because what’s the point of creating a wellness routine you can’t stick to?!)
- Easy and simple to use (look for superfood powders that have more than one superfood in them! You don’t want to have to take multiple different superfood powders a day just to get the results you desire)
Before we move on, I want you to know (if you don’t already) that we have a Superfood Powder Supplements Line. And I’m not going to beat around the bush-it is the BEST on the market. Do you want to know why? Because we searched high and low for the best superfood powder supplements to recommend our clients, and nothing was up to our standards. Nothing. So we set out to make our own. And it took a while, but only because we needed it to be the best. To be good enough to recommend to our clients for ultimate healing and results. So when we go through the next few sections, we will be talking about what to look for in each type of superfood powder supplement, why, and introducing you to ours. Our standards are high, and yours should be too.
Looking for more energy? Do you want to wake up feeling refreshed and be able to make it through the day without a second cup of coffee or a nap?! Then you need superfoods for energy. There are tons of superfoods out there that can promote consistent energy levels, without caffeine.
Ideally, the best superfood powder for energy will have no added sugar, an unmatched vitamin variety, potent antioxidants, and electrolytes. The main thing to look for here is a product that will hydrate you. When our body is dehydrated (which 70% of the population has chronic dehydration and doesn’t even know it) our organs can’t function properly, and all of our energy goes to keeping those alive, before it does to our brain and muscles. It’s not news: if you want vibrant health, you need to stay hydrated.
Another thing you need for energy is healthy detox pathways. Our superfood blend is packed with ingredients that support healthy detox. When your detox pathways are sluggish, so are you. Let’s get them energized and flushing properly so that you can feel your best.
- Electrolytes to look for: magnesium, phosphorous, and potassium. Our Superfood Energy powder has those 3 plus 4 more.
- B Vitamins to look for: B3, B12, and B6. B vitamins support red blood cell production and promote high energy, balance hormones, boost brain function, and improve mood.
- Acerola: a superstar ingredient for energy because it is packed with antioxidants and vitamin C.
- Pomegranate: brimming with over 100 phytochemicals, vitamins, and nutrients, to support vibrant health and vitality.
- Watermelon fruit powder: rich in antioxidants and the active ingredients that support the circulatory system, detox pathways, and metabolism.
- Strawberry Kiwi flavor that wakes you up and refreshes the senses. Plus, it makes you keep coming back for more.
The Best Superfood Powder for Gut Health
Our modern food system is laden with pesticides, herbicides, GMOs, processed sugars and flours, and other things that destroy our gut microbiome and gut lining. Besides that, we are experiencing stressors from every angle: environmental toxins, social media, sickness, career, relationships. Stress is one of the biggest root causes of poor gut health.
When all of these things come into play and gut health goes haywire, we can experience food sensitivities, digestive problems, skin issues, mood swings, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and more. This is why it is so crucial to take a superfood powder product that helps improve gut lining and digestive health.
The best superfood powder for gut health is collagen – and all of its boosting counterparts. Other incredible superfood powders for gut health include adaptogens that help you adapt to stress.
Let’s talk collagen first. Collagen must be from a good source, be bio-active, non-GMO and clinically-proven. I’m a stickler for making sure collagen has four things (especially ours) max absorption, digestibility, bioactivity, and bioavailability. If you collagen doesn’t have these four things, it’s time to switch it up.
Now, for collagen to work and assimilate properly, you need collagen boosters like vitamin C from superfoods like acerola cherry, schisandra, aloe vera, and black pepper fruit extract.
As far as adaptogens go, ours has one of the most potent adaptogenic plants, ashwagandha. It helps to reduce the impacts of stress, so that your gut heals.
Our super-infused collagen is also loaded with:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D3
- Vitamin E
- B Complex
And if all of that wasn’t good enough -our vanilla-honey collagen is a beauty supplement that creates radiance from the inside-out. Get your gut health and beauty health from one superfood powder with our Beauty Collagen Complex.
Ever since COVID-19, people have been on the lookout for an immunity supplement they can take daily. Building a resilient immune system doesn’t have to be hard or overwhelming. I see a ton of immunity powders on the market today. If you are looking for an immunity powder, you should be looking for these things:
- Immunity superfoods like turmeric powder, ginger powder, elderberry, adaptogenic mushrooms and organic leafy greens
- Organic ingredients
- Loaded with tons of vitamins (like vitamin K, vitamin B, vitamin C, minerals, and antioxidants
- No added sugar
- Additive free
- Allergen free
- Gluten free
It’s important to have your superfood powder be organic, have no added sugar, or gluten because these things destroy gut health. The majority of your immune system lives in your gut, so if your gut is unhealthy, immune system function will be compromised. This also means that you need to decrease stress! Immunity blends that contain adaptogens in them are going to be the best option! When you make yourself more resilient to stress, you are less likely to get sick. Your immune system will be ironclad!
Our Organic Immunity Greens powder is packed with all of the above, and I want to dive into the why a little bit more.
Ginger for starters supports healthy digestion, immune function, blood sugar levels, heart health, weight loss, and more. Turmeric, another potent immune system herb is turmeric, is anti-inflammatory that fights free radicals and boosts brain function.
Our organic greens blend is a combination of wheatgrass, spirulina, chlorella, dulse, and barley grass. All of which are incredibly nutrient dense and can help boost immunity and flood the body with nutrients.
Elderberry is another superstart immunity ingredient that is packed with antioxidants and vitamins that help tame inflammation and reduce stress.
Our mushroom blend is a combination of adaptogenic mushrooms to support immunity and stimulate a healthy cell response during times of stress.

So many greens powder are flooding the market – but which greens should you look for? What is the best green or s there one best super green?
Some of the most nutrient dense greens you’d want to find in a superfood green powder are:
- Chlorella powder
- Barley grass
- Alfalfa leaf
- Oat grass
- Cabbage leaf
- Collard greens (a fav healthy vegetable)
- Atlantic dulse
It’s crucial that these greens are organic, and sans added sugar and artificial sweeteners, and any other nasty stuff. This was so hard to find on the market. So my husband, Dr. Jones and I created one ourselves. But we added our own little flare.
We first of all – made it taste delicious – then we added other superfoods in it like a red superfood, beetroot, and medicinal mushrooms and herbs.
And one superfood for immunity, phytoplankton. Phytoplankton are micronutrients rich in nutrients that balance pH, boost heart health, regenerate cells, support liver, detox heavy metals, and improve mood.
This combo is the best thing we have seen on the market for greens powders. (Not athletic green or nested naturals!)
