Finding the perfect balance in your diet might seem like an arduous journey but it needn’t be. Eating enough good quality food every day can become daunting and monotonous but try and add some variety and helpful “cheats” into your diet in the form of superfood powders. Here is a list of 5 incredible powders that are so versatile that you’ll wonder why you haven’t been using them for years.

WHEY PROTEIN

Whey protein is one of the most popular forms of powdered nutrition that you can find. Its an easy and great way to top up your protein intake to aid with muscle growth, recovery and various nutritional requirements. It is popular among gym-goers as well as those who struggle to get enough protein in their diet. Something like LA Whey Gold is a great option for a high quality whey protein.

If you’re looking for something similar, you can also opt for casein protein which is a slow release form of protein also derived from milk and popularly taken just before bed for a slow release of protein to aid muscle recovery and growth as you sleep.

SPIRULINA

Spirulina is blue-green algae and it is often hailed as a superfood. It might be something of an acquired taste but this superfood has a ton of health benefits, such as being high in many nutrients, a powerful antioxidant and containing numerous anti-inflammatory properties. Not only that, it can also help lower bad LDL and triglyceride levels and protects bad LDL cholesterol from oxidation. It has also been known to have anti-cancer properties and help reduce blood pressure.

If you’re not a fan of the taste but want the benefits, then simply add some to a smoothie.

PEA PROTEIN

One of the best alternatives to whey protein for a plant-based high protein source, pea protein is very popular among vegans and non-vegans alike. Pea protein powder is a high-quality, easily digested protein source, usually made from yellow peas. Apart from the protein content, its other main benefits are being rich in iron, arginine and branched-chain amino acids and offers benefits like improved muscle growth, feelings of fullness and heart health.

Whether you’d prefer to add it to a shake or use some in a pasta bake, this protein source is extremely versatile and highly nutritious.

BCAAs

As well as getting them from your food, BCAA powders are a great way to increase your intake of important amino acids that among other things, can boost muscle growth and enhance athletic performance. Other important reasons they are extremely popular with athletes and fitness enthusiasts include decreasing muscle fatigue, alleviating muscle soreness and accelerating muscle recovery. An easy way to take it is by mixing it into water or your favourite sports drink and taking them before or after exercise as well as on a daily basis.

SUPER GREENS

Super greens or greens powders known by any other names, have similar benefits to spirulina but with a few differences. They are commonly used as a green vegetable supplement for those who hate and refuse to eat green vegetables but are also used by those who do love them, but also want something to increase the benefits of them without eating too much of them.

They have really earned their name “super”, as this superfood powder is a nutritional powerhouse that is rich in antioxidants, which can help combat free radicals in the body. Greens powders may also enhance overall wellness, support immune function and help reduce chronic disease risk. Other potential benefits may include increased energy and detoxification.
