What Botanical Powders Should I Be Using?

by | Feb 11, 2021

Most likely when you think of powder supplements, you think of protein powders. The market has been dominated for years by protein supplements and powders that all have the same basic function. However, powder is actually an incredible form to deliver many different types of supplements, plants, and botanicals to your body! Keep reading for more information on wellness powders and how to add them to your diet.

Why Should You Use BOTANICAL Powders FOR WELLNESS?

Powders can be a tremendous form of delivery to get supplements and botanicals into your system. The benefits of the powders range depending on what key ingredients are used in the formula, however by combining ingredients and botanicals you can create awesome powder blends with amazing benefits for the body! These blends can allow your body an easy and effective way to get vitamins and nutrients that are severely lacking in the standard diet.

What Other Powders SHOULD You Be Looking For Besides Protein?

You can find single ingredient powder for just about any ingredient you want on the market. From organic mushroom powders to specific vitamins such as Zinc or Vitamin D – this versitle form to deliver supplements is starting to gain real traction. Powders allow consumers to control the serving size and to easily turn any drink into a supplement. 

We find that most companies are either offering organic powders of single ingredients or powders that are blends of many different ingredients and botanicals. These blends may address certain pain points in your life, such as sleep, energy support, hydration, and brain function. Most of these powders are a much smaller size serving than a typical protein powder, often allowing them to dissolve easily in the drink of your choice! Remember that some of these ingredients are concentrated and their taste profiles can be challenging (beet root, turmeric, ashwagandha, etc.) when added to drinks or shakes.
