7 Great Green Superfood Powders to Try for Better Health ...

By Heather

I’m a huge fan of green superfood powders and honestly, I find it to be a hobby to try new ones out. Most people who have never used a green superfoods powder just don’t understand the point. I get that; I used to be one of them. Until I started using some pretty amazing green superfood powders, I was of course healthy, but did have lower energy levels overall. I implemented certain green superfood powders into my diet after a friend recommended I try some. I was learning to love smoothies for the first time in my life, so I thought I would give those oddly smelling, green powders a try. Even though some of them smelled weird, I got creative at flavoring my smoothies to get around the taste after I experienced how great they made me feel. Not all green superfood powders out there are as good as others. Check out my favorites that haven’t only changed my smoothies, but also my energy, digestion and immunity. None of these powders have any sugar, gluten, dairy, GMOs and most are organic and 100% raw.

1 Amazing Grass Green Superfood Cacao Infusion

Amazing Grass Green Superfood Cacao InfusionThis was one of the very first green superfood powders I fell in love with six years ago and is my number one overall favorite to this day. It may not be the most expensive or contain the most ingredients, but trust me, it works! It also tastes like a chocolate milkshake and absolutely nothing like green veggies. This completely raw, vegan, gluten-free, organic and GMO free powder can take your smoothie to a new level and contains over 10 servings of fruits and veggies in 1 single scoop. For a 2 month supply, it is also highly affordable, considering it is less than 75 cents a day. Give this a try if you’re new to green smoothies or if you just want something that tastes amazing, will heighten your immunity and increase your energy levels. It also contains probiotics and enzymes for optimal digestion. If you’re not a fan of chocolate, which I couldn’t imagine (but to each her own), then try the berry flavor! It is excellent as well.

2 Perfect Food Raw (Regular or Cacao Infusion)

Perfect Food Raw (Regular or Cacao Infusion)I’m a huge fan of Garden of Life products. They are full of nutrition, completely raw, and their Perfect Food Raw green powder is full of live enzymes, sprouts, probiotics, green superfoods and raw juice powders. This powder is highly effective at fighting off infections in my experience, and I love the taste! The Cacao Infusion is a new flavor and it does not disappoint! It is pretty affordable for a 30 day supply and it is gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free. All Garden of Life products are also organic and GMO free.

3 Emerald Balance (Regular, Berry and plus Variety)

Emerald Balance (Regular, Berry and plus Variety)Emerald Balance isn’t one of the most popular ones on the market, but this green superfood powder is one of the best. This powder is not only affordable, but contains organic ingredients and 8-10 servings of fruits and veggies in one single scoop. It is also full of detoxifying herbs and mushrooms that increase immunity and strengthen gut health, along with probiotics. The regular version has a slightly minty taste, while the berry flavor tastes like a tropical berry paradise, and the Plus variety has a delightful chocolate cocoa powder base. I like them all and they work pretty quickly in my experience. These products are yeast free, MSG free, gluten-free, GMO-free and vegan.

4 Barlean’s Greens Chocolate Silk Formula

Barlean’s Greens Chocolate Silk FormulaBarlean’s is the maker of one of the most popular flax and omega 3 supplements on the market today, but their green powder is also growing increasingly popular. So what can it do for you? Not only does it give your smoothies an absolutely addictive and delicious taste, but also a serious nutrition boost. You’ll find yourself craving less sweets with this, in my experience anyway, due to the green superfoods this brand includes. They also have an original formula if you don’t want chocolate in your smoothie, which has a nice berry flavor to it. It contains over 50 superfoods and nutrients, along with being GMO-free, gluten-free, soy-free and vegan.

5 Greens plus Superfood Organic Greens Powder

It also has 12,712 ORAC units per serving, making it a great source of antioxidants.

6 Earthrise Spirulina

Earthrise SpirulinaIf you’re on a budget and want a single, raw, whole food that will change your life, spirulina is it! It is also highly affordable and if you never try a green powder, try spirulina! I can honestly say for less than $15, you’re getting probably the best mental and physical enhancement of all superfoods out there. Spirulina is a deep water seaweed and Earthrise Spirulina is one of the best and most affordable brands out there. You only need ½ tsp. daily to experience a greater sense of clarity, focus and stamina that I can promise you is more than my beloved morning cup of coffee gives me, but I’m not giving that up; don’t worry! Spirulina is the most concentrated source of protein, iron and Vitamin B12 of any other food. It also contains Omega 3 fatty acids and highly bioavailable Vitamin A. It can change your skin, your digestion, your energy and your focus. I also love that it fights sugar cravings and is a complete whole food. I add ½ tsp. to my smoothie and I can’t even taste it with other flavors I use. Give it a try if you’ve never had it. You’ll become a quick convert! This brand contains no contaminants or GMOs, and is 100% vegan and raw.

7 Philosophie Green Dream

Philosophie Green DreamI can’t afford this green superfood on a regular basis, but after trying a sample, I can tell you, it is worth the money if you can afford it. It is not only the best tasting and one of the most simple green powders out there, but is also one of the most potent sources of the absolute best superfoods to exist. It doesn’t contain added vitamins or probiotics like most superfood green blends, but it is one of the best tasting. It also smells like dessert! Philosophie Green Dream features spirulina and chlorella, raw hemp, real vanilla powder, maca and a few other superfoods, which give it the best protein boost per serving with 10 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, no sugar and only 1 gram of healthy fat per tablespoon!

Adding a green superfood powder can increase your alkalinity dramatically, which lowers the pH of your body. This is important because alkalinity prevents inflammation and disease. Along with a clean, whole foods diet free of anything processed or artificial, and mostly plant-based foods, green superfood powders can change your alkalinity levels and make you feel like a new woman. Have you ever tried a green superfood powder? If so, what is your favorite brand?
