If your 2022 resolution is to focus on nutrition, then this post is for you. Cosmopolitan recently announced the top superfoods of the year, and there are some seriously impressive, nutrient-dense options on the list! Below, we’ll talk about the benefits of our absolute favorites, as well as how you can add them to your meals, snacks, and drinks.

The Top Superfoods to Add to Your Diet in 2022


Turmeric is certainly not a newbie to the health and wellness world. This richly-hued root (which you probably already have in powder form in your spice cabinet) contains compounds called curcuminoids. The most powerful curcuminoid found in turmeric is curcumin. Curcumin is packed with antioxidants, and also has impressive anti-inflammatory properties. 

Turmeric has the ability to fight inflammation in the body, defend against damaging free radicals, improve memory and brain power, and lower your risk of a variety of diseases (including cancer and heart disease). It’s believed that it may even be able to prevent Alzheimer’s!

This health-boosting spice can be used in a variety of dishes. Try making a nourishing curry, adding it to scrambled eggs or tofu, or sprinkling it on some roasted veggies! 

For a super easy way to add this spice to your diet, you can try Super Amazing Coffee and Superfood Tabs, which both feature turmeric! 

Super Amazing Coffee gives you the caffeine boost you need, with the addition of 12 amazing plant-based superfoods! In addition to turmeric, this nutrient-dense coffee contains superfoods like matcha, chaga, and ginger. They work to boost metabolism, fight brain fog, control cravings, improve immunity, and more! 

If you want a more refreshing way to add turmeric and superfoods to your health routine, try Superfood Tabs, which turn a glass of water into a fizzy berry-flavored drink! These tabs contain ingredients like elderberry, burdock root, pomegranate, ginseng root, and, of course, turmeric. 15 potent superfoods work together to fight bloating, increase energy, boost metabolism, curb cravings, decrease inflammation, and more!

Hemp Seeds

Hemp seeds have grown in popularity over the past few years, and it looks like they’re here to stay as one of the top superfoods! These small but mighty seeds are packed with healthy fatty acids, including omega-3s and omega-6s. They are also a great source of fiber, and are a complete source of protein (which means they have all nine essential amino acids!). In addition to their nutritional value, research has shown that hemp seeds provide a variety of potential health benefits. They may support the brain and boost heart health, and have also been found to reduce inflammation!

The great thing about hemp seeds is that they are super versatile. The taste is incredibly mild, and you can add them to just about any meal or snack! Try throwing some in your smoothies, or sprinkling them on top of oatmeal, cereal, avocado toast, or a salad.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Eat your vegetables – your cruciferous vegetables, that is. Cruciferous vegetables include the range of veggies in the brassicaceae family (AKA the cabbage family). This includes cauliflower, brussels sprouts, broccoli, kale, bok choy, and chard – to name just a few!

These nutrient-dense superfoods are excellent sources of vitamin B9 (AKA folate), vitamin C, potassium, selenium, fiber, and phytochemicals. Studies have shown that a cruciferous vegetable-rich diet may help lower your risk of a variety of cancers. 

Many cruciferous vegetables are delicious when pan roasted. Dress with some olive oil, season with your favorite spices (consider turmeric for some extra superfood power!), and then roast to perfection! Cruciferous vegetables are also great additions to soups, pasta dishes, and stir frys. 

Green Tea

If you love sipping on a hot cup of green tea, we have good news for you! Green tea has long been touted as a powerful superfood, and it has kept its holy grail status in 2022. This tea is packed with polyphenol antioxidants, including a catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (AKA EGCG). These antioxidants work to fight free radical damage in the body in order to slow aging and prevent disease. 

Green tea also contains an amino acid called L-theanine, which is believed to improve brain function. As an added bonus, this tea also boosts metabolism and increases fat burning!

In addition to enjoying green tea on its own, you can add it to your diet with Superfoods Company products! Superfood Tabs and Super Amazing Coffee both contain green tea (as well as turmeric!). This means you’ll get the powerful benefits of green tea, as well the benefits of a blend of other incredible superfoods – all in one delicious drink!


Of all the foods on this list, this is the one that you most likely haven’t heard of (and if you have, congrats – you’re a superfood expert!). Mankai is a protein-rich form of duckweed, an aquatic plant. This super small green is packed with iron, folate, choline, vitamin B12, and all nine essential amino acids, as well as a variety of other nutrients. Mankai may help lower blood pressure, decrease cholesterol levels, and improve the regulation of insulin and sugar levels. 

One of the great things about mankai is that it has a fairly neutral taste, and is easy to include in a variety of recipes. Try adding it to smoothies, dips, pasta dishes, or soups!
