Superfoods are touted for their exceptional nutritional density and health benefits which include, among others, improved nutrition, good heart health, and stable blood sugar levels.
One of the popular food items tagged “superfood” is kale. According to nutrition experts, a single cup of the dark leafy greens has more vitamin C than an orange, contains seven times the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for vitamin K, and is a good source of minerals like calcium, potassium, and magnesium.
Beets are rich in nitrates that convert to nitric acid in the body beneficial in improving blood flow. Quinoa, meanwhile, contains all nine essential amino acids that the body cannot make on its own.
Filipino plant-based brand Sekaya offers the dietary goodness of superfoods through its Sekaya Raw Actives line. The range consists of superfood powders made with high quality USDA-certified organic wholefood ingredients. They come in ready-to-mix powder formats that can be stirred in water or other beverages, or mixed in with food.

While there is science that backs their health benefits, the Harvard School of Public Health advises that regular consumption of superfoods still needs to be complemented with healthy living, and that they should not be mistaken as cure-alls for any existing ailments.
