Turmeric isn’t what you would call breaking news, but it definitely deserves a spot on your top shelf. The deep yellow spice has roots in Ayurvedic medicine and is known for its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. While it boasts of myriad benefits, turmeric most famously increases collagen and fights free radicals.

In the past few years, moringa (or malunggay) has skyrocketed to It-food status. Although almost every single part of this superfood is used, moringa’s power is in its bitter leaves and seed pods. It’s high in protein, calcium, iron, vitamin C, and yes, the ubiquitous antioxidants. With continuous use, moringa can help increase energy, stabilize blood sugar levels, and improve mental clarity.

If there’s one supplement doctors recommend for most folks, it’s fish oil. An oldie but goodie, fish oil is jam-packed with omega-3s, which are imperative for heart and mental health. And don’t turn up your nose at the fishy name—it also helps improve your complexion and slow the aging process! One-pill wonder? We certainly think so.
