Do you ever wonder what all the “superfood” powders do? You might see me or others on social media adding powders to our food and drink and wonder if they are all that important. I’m going to share some superfood powders I use and what I take them for. Then you can decide if the benefits of these superfood powders are worth including into your regimen. Remember I’m just a girl sharing what I do, use & love. Always educate yourself on what you put into your own body. 😊

Benefits of Superfood Powders:
If I could only have one powder, this would be it. Spirulina definitely gives meaning to the word “superfood.” I take it for my multivitamin, a heavy metal detoxer, an iron supplement and my plant protein. This doesn’t even touch the surface of it either. It promotes healthy gut flora, supports a healthy immune system, helps with the central nervous system, helps heal the liver & thyroid, helps remove radiation, it’s high in antioxidants, minerals, beta-carotene, and so much more.
For two years, I was taking the Vimergy Spirulina, but then a few months ago I started trying a less expensive but very reputable brand. I figured why not save money if it was still a good brand. Well, now that I am now on my second bottle of it – with nothing bad to personally say about it – I keep seeing that the Pacific is more polluted now than ever (which is where this particular Spirulina comes from). So now, because of this information, I will finish my current bottle, but go back to Vimergy Spirulina, since I know it is top quality. I will save elsewhere.
Barley Grass Juice Powder
This is another powder I take because of it’s heavy metal detox ability. If you don’t think you are exposed to heavy metals on the daily or just want to know what an excess of heavy metals does, I recommend you read this article. Barley Grass Juice Powder is also a great source of vitamins, minerals, and chlorophyll. It increases energy, it’s good for digestion, and helps improve skin, hair and nails. I’ve been buying this one lately.
Dragon Fruit Powder
I take dragon fruit powder since dragon fruit is so good for the liver and it’s high in antioxidants. It’s the ingredient that makes smoothies hot pink/magenta in color. I order my dragon fruit powder directly from Wilderness Poets as it’s less expensive buying directly through them. I also have their Turmeric Powder, Camu Camu Berry Powder, Blue Butterfly Pea Powder, Freeze Dried Coconut Water, and Cacao Paste for an occasional treat. Wilderness Poets sells so much goodness. Highly recommend checking them out. Code ‘herhealthystyle10’ gets you $10 off of your first order.
The red pigment in the red-fleshed variety of pitaya is a rejuvenator for your liver, bringing cells back to life. It helps your liver produce cells faster so regeneration of the liver can occur. It’s a fountain of youth fruit for the liver that slows down and stops liver aging by caring for its deep, inner core, which in most cases succumbs to disease if left neglected for too long.MEDICAL MEDIUM
This is one powder you can find me taking all through the winter season and during this high virus time when I remember. I usually just steep it in whatever hot something I’m drinking. I take chaga because it’s immune supporting, anti-viral, anti-cancerous, and anti-inflammatory. Chaga has a ton of healing properties to it. Read more about Chaga and what it’s beneficial for here. I am using this chaga right now.
I’ve been out of Reishi for a bit, but I will be ordering it again before winter. I take Reishi because of it’s immune boosting, anti-viral, mental clarity, feel good, respiratory healing properties, but I love that I’m getting so many more benefits from it when I do take it. I just feel good when I am taking it – can’t quite pinpoint it. A bonus is I love the earthy taste too. I used it as my “coffee” last winter. I order the Anima Mundi Reishi.
I use turmeric because of it’s immune boosting, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancerous properties. It’s also good for aches and pains. I’ve been adding turmeric powder to my smoothies lately, but in winter, I make a golden turmeric ginger latte with it – so delicious. I take so many supplements and the powder form is less expensive than the pill form, so I altar between both. I buy these turmeric supplements and this turmeric powder.
I take amla powder because it’s high in Vitamin C, has immune boosting properties, is good for hair, and helps with anti-aging. There is a boatload of benefits from this superfood powder though. This is also a powder I don’t take routinely, but it’s in rotation. I buy this Amla Powder.
It also contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties making it essential for autoimmune disorders such as arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, cardiomyopathy, lupus, fibromyalgia, and bursitis. Amla also contains potent anti-mutagenic and anti-proliferative properties which can be vital in the prevention of cancer. It is also very good at alkalinizing the stomach and removing acidosis and is known to enhance food absorption and regulate elimination making it an excellent digestive aid.MEDICAL MEDIUM
A smoothie is an easy way to get many of these powders in. Check out this smoothie recipe where I include Spirulina and Barley Grass Juice Powder. You can also toss in any extra superfood powders to it too!
