(NaturalNews) Superfood powders are one of the most effective ways to supercharge your health - providing a wealth of healthy nutrition in the form of plant-based vitamins, minerals and other other nutrients as well as proteins and compounds which provide specific health benefits for cells throughout the body.
Superior commercial superfoods powders are widely available; however they typically cost $4 to $5 or more per ounce. When you make your super food powder mix at home, you can do so for only about $1 per ounce.
You can choose from a wide variety of plants. The following plants are the ones used by the author and are based on a popular formula regarded by many to be among the very top superfood powder formulas, with the addition of acerola cherry:
The above list of ingredients yields 13 pounds of superfood powder. You can buy smaller quantities of course, but the price per ounce will be higher. Thus it is suggested that you get two or more friends to chip in and split the cost.
An abundance nutrition and natural healing in every scoop
The items in the above suggested list contain a wealth of good nutrition and many are also known individually as some of the most powerful plants on the planet for healing. A look at the nutritional benefits of just the first three ingredients provides a good glimpse of what you will be providing your body with a homemade superfoods powder:
Alfalfa is naturally high in protein and contains many essential vitamins and minerals, including A, D, E, K, the full family of B vitamins; biotin, calcium, folic acid, iron, magnesium, potassium and many others.
Dulse is a high-protein seaweed which is a great source of iron, organic iodine, potassium, phosphorus and organic sodium. It also contains plentiful B6, B12, and potassium as well as vitamins C, E, A and calcium, magnesium and zinc.
Spinach contains mineral salts (sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sulfur, iron, zinc, manganese, iodine, copper), vitamins (C, B1, B2, B6, PP, E, K, folic acid, vitamin A), chlorophyll, amino acids, arginine and lysine, lipids, protides, glucides and fibers and, like many of the other suggested ingredients, has a wide range of medicinally beneficial properties.
Serving suggestion and final notes
The suggested serving size is 8 grams of powder (about one well-rounded coffee scoop). You can mix the powder in water, but it will taste better mixed in juice. If you use healthy juiced vegetables it will truly be a super health drink.
If you find that you want to grind and sift the powders a bit more you can do so with a mortar and pestle or with a stainless steel food strainer and either a pestle or the rounded bottom of a spoon.
The freshest and least expensive superfood powder mix would be one made by turning dried bulk plants into powder. However, such a method requires a considerable investment in time as well as investments in the tools needed for the task (such as mortar and pestle and/or manual or electric grinder, strainer, sifter or sieve, etc.).
However you prepare and mix your powder, you can be sure to enjoy a wealth of good health and nutrition!
