Perhaps our favorite thing about superfoods is their versatility, and one of the most obvious examples of that versatility is their ability to fuel our days. Enter: protein powders. There's no better way to power through a busy schedule or recover after a workout. Most people are unaware of the potential danger of the artificial ingredients in popular protein powders, but believe it or not, the side effects of many of these ingredients range from nausea and vomiting to liver damage and seizures. So it goes without saying that many of the protein powders currently on the market are less-than-natural, and can even be toxic.
Luckily, certain superfoods are loaded with protein, and can easily be ground into a powder. However, even if you’ve already decided to make the switch to superfood protein powders, it can seem impossible to discover which one is right for you. With nearly a dozen popular options, it’s not always obvious which protein powder will help you get the results you desire. Besides, It’s no secret that all protein powders provide different benefits, and superfood protein powders are no exception.
