Whether wellness is at the core of your lifestyle or just something you’re casually interested in, we’re sure you’ve heard of superfoods. Basically, these are nutrient-dense food and drink essentials that offer tons of health benefits per serving. Translation: they’re key to balancing your diet in a smart yet super simple way!
Superfoods come in many forms, but we especially love the ones that come in fuss-free packages you can just scoop the good stuff straight out of. Local brand The Superfood Grocer (aptly named!) offer plenty of those: from healthy fats and high-fiber grains to antioxidant-rich powders, they have it all covered. Seriously, all you need to do is rip a bag open and you’ll be well on your way to a better-for-you meal in no time!
Still think superfoods are all hype? Then don’t take our word for it—take our customers’. Scroll for their five-star faves from this top brand to find out exactly why they think these wellness staples are worth calling super!
1. CHIA SEEDS
Robinette, 39: “I put this in my protein shake for breakfast or dinner. I love how it thickens my drink and makes me feel full for longer. Digestion-wise, I noticed my ‘morning routine’ has improved. Sometimes, I add a teaspoon to my water for texture.”
SHOP THE REVIEW: Chia Seeds 1/2 lb. (227g), now on sale at P315 (limited time only)
2. FLAX SEEDS
Jade, 27: “I use this in my smoothies and omelettes. It’s rich in fiber, making me feel full for a longer time. Plus, it also helps regulate my digestion. Healthy superfood to incorporate in your diet plans!”
SHOP THE REVIEW: Golden Flax Seeds (454g / 1lb), now on sale at P212 (limited time only)
L, age unknown: “I’m picky about buying matcha powders from mainstream shops, because I tend to grab sugar (and other fillers)-filled matcha powders. This one is pure matcha! It’s also affordable compared to imported brands.”
SHOP THE REVIEW: Matcha Green Tea Powder (50g), now on sale at P338 (limited time only)
4. CACAO NIBS
Lee, 23: “This product perfectly suits me since I can eat them without being guilty afterwards. It has this distinct bitter taste of cacao, and just the right amount of sweetness. It can be used in a plethora of applications, spicing dishes up with an honest-to-goodness superfood kick.”
SHOP THE REVIEW: Cacao Nibs Coated in Coconut Sugar 1/2 lb. (227g), now on sale at P225 (limited time only)
5. MACA POWDER
DK, 29: “In as little as 2 weeks, I’ve noticed that maca powder helps me: (1) feel more energized (without the crash-and-burn effect that comes with consuming coffee or energy drinks); (2) sleep much better, so I wake up feeling refreshed even on less than 8 hours of sleep; (3) deal with menstrual cramps; and, (4) recover from muscle soreness faster.”
SHOP THE REVIEW: Organic Maca Powder (100g), now on sale at P338 (limited time only)
Catch, 22: “Excellent alternative to sugary cereal. This is crunchy and satisfying without being overly sweet. As a health-conscious sweet tooth, it was really useful for me to have a healthy snack, so I won’t be tempted to cheat on my diet.”

Gia, 28: “It does wonders! If you are a first timer and would like to try quinoa, this product is for you. It’s worth the price and quality! I’m on a low-carb, high-protein diet and I substitute quinoa for my rice. It curbs the sugar cravings and makes you full throughout the day.”
